Spiritual Awakening Emotional and Physical Symptoms

There are a number of physical symptoms, mood swings, sleep pattern fluctuations, and a multitude of sensations you’ll feel, both from the changes the Earth is undertaking, and also from transformations you undergo on a personal level.

Apart from the physical and emotional aspect, I’d also include as “signs” life circumstances and events that generally happen, or may happen, when you awaken. I’ve written a separate article about 8 things that happen to you during awakening.

1. Sleeping Patterns

One of the most common things that can generally occur is your sleeping patterns and rhythms being affected. This may happen either because you naturally change them yourself, or they may change without you knowing why, which may leave you startled. At some point I remember I spontaneously developed the habit of going to sleep at 7 p.m., waking up at 12p.m., staying awake up until around 4 a.m., and then going to sleep again until morning. Now, I’m not suggesting this is “right” or “wrong”, or that it’ll be this way forever, just as an example of a sleeping pattern changing at some point.

By far, the most common occurrence is that, if you go to bed at “regular hours” and expect to have a full night’s sleep, you may wake up once or twice in the middle of the night, and then not be able to sleep for a full hour or so. You may also have more trouble falling asleep, have lighter sleep, and/or have more “troublesome” dreams than usual, dreams whose sensations may last a bit even after you’ve got out of bed.

All of this happens because of the energetic work that’s happening to you on a personal level, and also with Earth, as I’ve said. It’s a normal occurrence and it shouldn’t leave you upset. The most sensible advice I guess I could give is first, to just adapt to it and not fight it (bad mistake), and also, you can voice out, asking Spirit to “slow down” the work to let you sleep. Then see how your requests changes the situation. You should interact with Spirit often in this way in general, to get to grips with what you can affect.

2. Dizziness

It’s not an often a symptom for me, but once during the 2011 Easter days, I had to stay two full days lying in the couch without doing anything, because swinging my head to the side (let alone standing up) sent me into a dizziness mayhem – much like when you leave the roller coaster.

The dizziness itself wasn’t that crippling, the problem was the sickness that immediately followed if I insisted in moving and I have to do things. And, to this day, I find no reason whatsoever for that happening to me. Well, maybe I do, it was for cleansing my mind and general energy exchange. And for that I needed to stay still and not do anything. But, I never knew any specifics about it. I probably didn’t need to.

This is just an example of a wacky symptom that just happens for no particular reason, but it’s related to energy stuff. I’m sure that if I freaked out, not aware of the reasons behind it, it certainly would have been a much worse situation that what it had to be. Oh, and it probably helped that my partner can read energy and knew what was happening.

3. Temperature Regulation/Sensations

You’re feeling cold. But it’s a warm day. Never mind, you go and grab a sweater. Five minutes later you’re too hot and have to take it off. What’s going on? You may even not know how to dress your bed at night. You’re cold in early night and you cover up nicely, but in the middle of the night you wake up sweating. And then in the morning you’re freezing cold because you’ve put all the blankets aside.

Energy exchange changes your temperature. This is part of the reason all those “cracks” happen around you (see further below). When old energy leaves, your body gets colder, and when new energy enters you get warmer again. It’s just how it is. My advice is… carry around your extra sweater with you. And with your bed, do like this: keep your bed dressed reasonably but well on the light side, and you yourself, dress more layers of clothing than normal. That way you can take off your clothes in the middle of the night to cool down if you’re too hot, but without getting uncovered throughout the night.

4. The Passage of Time

This is more related to the Earth workings than to your personal Awakening process, but if you’re sensitive to it, you’ll notice both that a) time is passing by vary rapidly, and maybe that b) there’s more time in each day than before. This is related, again, to Earth’s energy.

On a side note, time does go by faster when you’re having fun, and very slowly when you’re doing something unaligned with your Essence. This is because the only time that counts is Spirit’s. And from Spirit’s point of view, only activities aligned with your Essence, and that your Spirit wishes to do, are worth doing.

5. Mood Swings

You may be more sensitive, more jumpy, less open or tolerant to anything that makes you feel bad, or even less patient towards other people, even if it’s your closest relatives. In a sense this isn’t an “unnatural” thing, since many of the general human-level interactions with others are unbalanced and/or karmic based.

You might want to be careful not to be labeled as a time-bomb ready to explode on other people. But I want to stress that, if anything, this can actually be good, healthy thing for you. It will either be a process of healing of what had been emotionally suppressed, and/or, it is designed to have you less susceptible to lose energy to other people and/or suppress more in the future. It means you’re more sensitive, which in itself is a positive thing. It’s generally more valid the more spiritually inclined you are, and it’s most certainly true when you’re fully in the Awakening process. So if you’re tempted to think “why am I being impolite and a bad person” by default, try instead asking if you’re actually right instead. It may be your Spirit asking you to spend some quality time alone, for yourself.

If you want to know when dealing with someone is of a karmic and/or unbalanced nature, a reasonable general indicator is to check if you feel better or worse immediately after dealing with the person.

6. Back/Neck/Body Pains

I hear about this aspect, even if I don’t experience too many weird or uncommon things in this sense. Back pains are supposed to happen, again, because of the shifts that are happening with your body. So if you experience random back, neck, or body pains, this may be the cause. I sometimes have some sudden spikes of stinging pain in my forearms, near the tendons. This is generally a good thing: your energy/healing lines opening up.

What I do experience often, is a pressure in a zone located at the back and bottom of head / top of neck, which for your visual convenience is exactly in the area of the head-plug you see in the Matrix movies. Pressure in this area is generally bad, as it may mean either a concentration of your own negative/karmic thoughts, someone else’s negative thoughts towards you (negative thoughts from others about you, can and will reach you, like an ‘energetic assault’), or even a less-than-benevolent energy trying to sneak in uninvited, such as a negative spirit attachment. Sudden back pain all over your shoulders and upper back might also mean negative attachment. Yes folks, energy isn’t just about Divine Light from Heaven (but it should, and can be).

Pressure in these areas might also just be your guides performing maintenance duty, but regardless, if you feel it, you’re advised to, first, not to freak out, and second, ask out loud your guides for them to clean you in that area with Light, block external energies from attacking you, and help you understand what you need to know or learn in order to stop creating or attracting this situation.

If it doesn’t stop, there are many available simple meditation techniques or cleaning rituals you can perform yourself. This is also valid for any weird pains you have anywhere else. What I generally do is closing my eyes, visualize Light from Spirit coming in, and a giant vacuum cleaner sucking away any thing that’s there, with the guidance of my Higher Self. You can also reach a practitioner of your alignment, if you’re having this persistently.

7. “Crack” Noises Around You


Hey! Did my phone/door/cabinet/wall just broke up by itself? What was that?

This is obviously not a ‘physical symptom’ on your body, but a phenomenon nonetheless. With the increase of (positive) Spiritual energy in your life, and the amount of Light you carry around, you may notice you stuff around stars popping and making cracking noises. You may also mess around with electrical devices, or have other effects on objects. This will happen most frequently when you’re feeling an intense emotion, having an insight or epiphany, meditating, breathing deeply, or simply passing by or standing near the object.

This happens because your own energy is getting stronger and interacts with objects around you. Electric devices, plastic objects, things with springs, and anything that may contract/expand with temperature variations, are specially sensitive to this. Also, your own Spirit Guides may interact with you by making these cracks themselves, for example to validate you when you have a thought they wish to reinforce. Just ask them not to break anything (just kidding).

Also, don’t confuse these cracks make by your own energy, with noises made by accumulated energetic though-forms in the space, or even negative spirits hanging around. These are supposed to be cleaned and go to the Light, respectively. In doubt, ask aloud for Archangel Michael to cleanse your space of any negative energy. And then wait. You own your space and have absolute authority over it, so nothing can be there if you stand your ground and say it aloud, with no dialogue and no compromise: “Just Go, Now”. If you need to, ask for the help of a practitioner of your alignment. Cleansing the energy of spaces is common practice. And there’s lessons to it as well.


Generally speaking, you may develop certain temporary or recurrent illnesses, such as allergies, colds and fevers in a different pattern and frequency, and so on. Any of these might have a certain emotion/experience you’ll want to deal and heal, but they’ll be most likely related to your energetic process. These are often not taken as a glaring “sign” of spiritual awakening, because you may have had similar symptoms before, and so they may often go unnoticed. Until one day you look back and think “oh, so that’s why…”.

Hope I’ve helped in some way. If I remember anything more I’ll add it here. You can also add anything you experience yourself in the comments section. Happy Awakening!
