It can be hard from where you are now to perceive a time when your emotions will be balanced, calm, and collected. It can feel inconceivable to imagine that you could get your sanity back or maintain a level mental state. Rest assured that although it may seem distant, uncertain or darn near impossible right now, that it is an inevitable part of this transformational journey.
Your empathic abilities might feel like they are a burden sometimes, but this is all part of the process for spiritual awakening.
There are several reasons why your emotions and empathy are so sensitive during spiritual awakening. Let’s take a look at them right now:
7 Signs and Symptoms of an Empaths Powerful Spiritual Awakening
1) The feeling that something has changed inside of you
You can’t explain it but you feel different. You even have the sensation to have become a new person, which has nothing to do with the one you were before. The world has now a new color and a new taste, simply because you now look at it with new eyes…
2) Awareness of your old negative habits
You become aware of everything that was not right in your “old life”, in your old you. You realize all the things you used to do and don’t want to do anymore, and all the thinking patterns you don’t wish to keep. You are ready for a big change and you never want to go back.
3) To not feel good with your old entourage anymore and to feel the need to be alone or with new people, more alignment with who you have become
Evolving spiritually can be a painful process, as not everyone around you will evolve at the same speed. We look for new people, more in alignment with who we really are and our new energy. Naturally, we are attracted to these new people, who make us feel good and energized. We connect with them directly, even virtually, as we are on the same “wave-length”. That’s because this time the connection is from soul to soul. You “see” each other, and you are of the same vibration. It’s a heart and soul connection which is less likely to be ruled by the ego.
4) Avoid superficiality and everything that is not authentic
You have become allergic to anything superficial and not “real”, not authentic: people, places, activities, TV shows (if you even keep watching it). You are on a quest to authenticity, simplicity, real things, that would make your heart sing. You may think you have become antisocial, or “too difficult”, but “it is no sign of health to be well adjusted to a sick society”, always remember this. Always follow your heart.
5) Deep sadness / compassion about the suffering in the world
A spiritual awakening is not always the best feeling in the world. It can often be accompanied by strong feelings of despair and sadness when becoming more and more aware of all the suffering in the world, even depression for some people. Once we suddenly “see” and “understand” things, it can sometimes be a shock.
6) Feeling the need to make this world a better place
Taking care of your own well-being is not enough for you. You want to also help others and have a positive impact on the world. You feel more and more compassion and empathy for others and for animals. Your life only has a meaning when you do something for others. Even if you have impacted only one person or one animal, it makes you incredibly happy and makes you feel as if you didn’t come on earth for nothing. You feel “called” to make something bigger. You can’t go back, and if you sometimes find it hard to be “awaken”, you would never want to be “asleep” again.
7) A deep yearning for meaning in your life
A lot of things that you used to do before, are of no interest to you anymore. You need meaning in your life now, otherwise you get bored, and that affects you psychologically (you can even get depressed). You need to have a purpose, a goal when you wake up. You also need to do a job that is meaningful. You can’t imagine yourself doing a job that wouldn’t contribute to the well being of the world.
