19 Signs You Are Experiencing A Spiritual Awakening and What To Do About It

Updated: Jan 7, 2021

Updated since September 2017

There is something wonderful happening on this planet right now. Many of the old ways are coming into question, systems are collapsing, relationships are dissolving, more and more questions are being asked and people are beginning to feel increasingly wary and restless. The consciousness of humanity is growing and people are beginning to take notice. Do you recognize yourself in that? If you do, then you are being called now to wake up.

Just like everything else, consciousness evolves and we humans are no exception to that. We astrologers have known about it for a long, long time. Many believe that as of December 21, 2012, we are in the new age, the Age of Aquarius. This is a time of great change and radical evolution. This is a time of consciousness growth and greater spiritual awareness. Some will go with the flow of these changes, eager to evolve while others may find themselves lost, confused and alone. If you are in the latter group, then this article is for you.

The following are signs that you are beginning to feel the call of evolution and you are starting to wake up. These are in no particular order. If you experience a great many of these, then you are surely being called to drop all of the things in your life which no longer serve your greater purpose and to take up a new path, a path of self-discovery and universal understanding.

1. You feel a sort of emptiness about the way society is telling you to live.

You get a growing sense that all of the things which you were told would bring you happiness are actually bringing you misery. You realize that the things which are advertised to you are for empty and meaningless things. The new car, the pumpkin spice lattes, the new smartphone, the latest Netflix binge worthy series, they all seem rather empty and useless to you. You seek more sustenance for your life.

2. You have a gnawing feeling inside you that something is changing.

You may not be able to explain it, but something inside yourself tells you that you have changed. You are no longer the same person you have always been and you are beginning to see that you lived behind a veil. You are beginning to see that who you really are has yet to come to the surface. But that is all changing now.

3. You have a growing need for more transparent media.

If you have never really been one to keep up on things, you might find yourself suddenly interested in learning more now. Or you may have already been interested in current events, but your interest now has expanded to include information from sources you may have previously dismissed, such as conspiracy theories and alternate media sources. You are giving secondary sources of information a fair chance now.

Before you may not have cared too much about what the media was telling you, but now you are looking at it with a raised eyebrow. You no longer mindlessly take what it tells you and subconsciously make it your opinion. You seek transparency from your media and news sources. You are willing to research and listen to more than one source before you draw your own conclusions.

4. You are gaining a healthy skepticism about the systems.

You are questioning the validity of many of our old systems. You find yourself questioning the government, the financial system, the education system, the media and entertainment industry, the professional sports industry, the healthcare system, and the religious systems. You are beginning to realize that they are no longer serving the needs of the many, only the needs of the privileged few.

5. You have a growing interest in things of an occult nature.

You feel a need to know more about things which might have frightened you before, but now seem to be a plausible and beneficial source of knowledge. Perhaps you are drawn to the earth religions of old such as Wicca or Druidism. Perhaps you feel a need to study astrology, numerology, palmistry and the like. Or perhaps you are beginning to look further into the hidden mysteries of the universe.

6. You have a greater concern about your health and the food you eat.

You are listening to your body more. You realize that what you do for your body makes a real difference to your mental health, not just your physical health. You feel a desire to give your body more nutritious food and a desire to exercise it more simply because it likes to move.

7. You feel a calling toward nature.

You find urban environments to be rather loud and intrusive. You find you feel a slight repulsion by tall buildings, concrete and traffic. You might have a strong desire to take a walk in the woods, go camping or just spend more time in nature instead of being in the urban area.

8. You feel a growing need to be more environmentally aware and active.
