Basic & Most Common Spiritual Awakening Signs and Symbols
Wake Up To Who You Are.
Every person on this planet thinks at least once in their lives, "who am I?" "Why am I here?" And many of us ponder where we came from, perhaps where we're going after death. Many of us ignore our spirituality for years, sometimes even for lifetimes. But there is sometimes that one bright moment. That moment when we realize everything that we've already known.
That moment is what many refer to as a spiritual awakening. Thousands of people are experiencing it already in the year of 2013, while others have already gone through their awakening in the year of 2012. Perhaps you are feeling something amazing stirring inside of you. Perhaps you are waking up to who you really are, and you may be realizing where you're going. If you're a bit unsure, I hope to provide some basic information on signs and symbols that one could experience while going through a spiritual awakening.
You have a purpose.
Have you gone through life feeling as though you had a purpose, you just didn't know what? Maybe you've had a longing or aching to do something great, to do something that would help humanity and really make a difference in the world. If you've always had these feelings inside of you, you're bound to have a spiritual awakening...if not now, then in the future. Many people live on this earth and totally forget that they had a purpose to begin with. They muddle about their lives, remaining slaves to the system...wasting their "time" and precious energies and gifts on meaningless jobs and pointless daily duties. Don't let this be you. Now is the time to realize your potential.
If you are reading this article, you probably are already spiritually awakening. You probably already know that you have a purpose and you want to know what that purpose is. I cannot tell you that. That is something you'll have to remember on your own, but you can always ask your guides for their assistance in pulling up those deep-seated memories. So how do you know your going through a spiritual awakening? What are some of the most common spiritually awakening signs?
Spiritual Awakening Signs
While everyone's spiritual experiences and therefore spiritual awakenings are different as we all are unique individuals, many of them have similar patterns and feelings. Here are some of the most common spiritual awakening signs:
1. A Knowing That Something Has Changed Inside of You.
This feeling and inner-knowing is very hard to explain, but if you are experiencing it...then you will know it. There would be no question in your mind or heart that something has changed within you...or that somethings you knew all along have been validated. It wouldn't matter if the entire world told you that you're crazy, you would still know this to be truth deep down inside. That's the first and most personal sign that you are spiritually awakening.
2. No More Coincidences, Only Recurring Patterns.
You will start to notice recurring patterns in your life. Things will no longer seem like coincidence, but will prove to be happening for a certain reason. You might hear someone say the same phrase or thing, and then hear a complete stranger say it again. You might see the same symbol or number over and over again within a period of hours or even days. This is a basic spiritual principle known as synchronicity. I have experienced this many times. It means that you are aware of a bigger picture, and that you are paying attention to the messages that the universe and/or your spirit guides are sending to you. This is also a very common sign of spiritual awakening.
All of a sudden, you'll have a huge urge to purge your life of all that is unhealthy or holding you in a lower vibrational frequency. This could mean a change in the things that you eat and drink, i.e. you stop drinking caffeine or alcohol or have cravings for very particular healthy foods. Your body itself could be trying to purge itself of toxins by vomiting or diarrhea. You may also get an urge to clean your house of all clutter, getting rid of unnecessary material things and keeping only those things of which you need. Purging your group of friends and even your job could be a part of your spiritual awakening. Maybe you wake up one morning and realize that your friends are not healthy for your well-being, or that perhaps your job is meaningless and not serving the purpose for which you are here. This is all a part of spiritually awakening and another common spiritual awakening sign. Emotions could also be escaping your body at an alarming rate - you may go from laughing hysterically to crying uncontrollably. Let it all out...it is your spirit awakening within you.
4. Inner Peace and Joy.
The anxiety, depression, or lonely feelings will all start to melt away. Another common spiritual awakening sign is a sense of full inner peace and joy, unlike that you've ever felt before. It's like your soul has taken a deep cleansing breath and is in a state of relaxation and complete warmth. You no longer feel worry for the future, and you know that there is no "time" that is real except for the here and now. Now is the time to serve your purpose, now is the time to wake up. You will find joy from the knowledge that your soul is remembering that you once knew.
5. Seeing the beauty in the world.
You will start to notice things that you might have never noticed before. You'll stop to look at a flock of birds flying by. You might have an aching to watch the sunset or the moon rise in the night sky. An unshakeable connection with nature and with humanity will start to develop in you. You might be inclined to fight for human or animal rights. You might also feel an inclination to create something beautiful, such as a piece of art or even a child. Your sight will change inherently...you'll see the beauty in the world that has always been there...you just never noticed until now.
Part of the theory of synchronicity, and the experience of perceiving recurring patterns includes that of noticing particular symbols. Sometimes these symbols have meaning to you and your life, other times these symbols might be religious or ancient in nature. Here are some of the basic symbols you may experience as a spiritual awakening sign of synchronicity:
- Stars, sun, moon
- The Cross
- Pyramids and triangles
- Celtic knots or the triquetra
- Spirals and circles
- Egyptian symbols, i.e. ankh
- Symbols of an unidentifiable nature
- Animal Images

What do I do now?
If you've nodded your head to every sign given in this article, then you already know that you are going through a spiritual awakening. You don't need anyone to tell you or prove it to you. You know that now you have to do something to change the patterns you once held onto in your life. So you might be asking the question, what do I do now? I think you already know. Make the changes necessary to bring yourself to a higher consciousness. To bring yourself closer to the light and closer to your higher self. Get in touch with your angels and/or spirit guides to seek guidance on the first step, if you are still unsure. Meditate on what you know to be true in your heart.
Live, let others live, and love. And above all, be free. Truly free.
