Signs Indicating a Spiritual Awakening

Do you have a desire to detox your body or declutter your home? Are you experiencing anxiety or panic attacks, strange body sensations, depression, fatigue, headaches, heart palpitations, or hot/cold flashes? Have you noticed significant changes in your relationships, libido, careers, sleep patterns, and dietary preferences?  Maybe you are hearing/seeing in other dimensions and have observed an increase in psychic gifts, synchronicities, and emotional responses. These are some of the signs that you are undergoing a spiritual awakening.  Yvonne Perry’s Shifting into Purer Consciousness ~ Integrating Spiritual Transformation with the Human Experience is a marvelous book filled with valuable information that provides just about everything you need to know to support your journey through the ascension process, which is a path from chaos to peace. You may learn more about Yvonne and her book at //

As part of the virtual book tour for Yvonne’s latest book, I am sharing an article titled “Signs Indicating a Spiritual Awakening.”

Signs Indicating a Spiritual Awakening

By Yvonne Perry

The ascension (spiritual awakening) is the shift we are all making on our path home to Source—oneness. We are leaving the condition of duality and separation where ego reigns over our thoughts and actions. Symptoms—the physical and emotional responses we have to this process—may come in the form of sickness, body aches and pains, financial loss, emotional despair, significant life changes, or an opening of supernatural abilities. Thankfully, the energy to manage and heal the symptoms is available.

Body Sensations               

As the biological body shifts into the light body, the old cellular structure is dissolving, giving birth to a new crystalline structure. For some who are sensitive, this can be an uncomfortable experience until enough of the form has been transmuted to allow for a purer vibration to take hold. The detoxification process can bring about body aches and pains (flu-like symptoms) or fatigue that our current medical doctors cannot explain or treat. It is not uncommon to experience unusual sensations in your body or chakras. There could be pressure on top of your head, tingling on your scalp or forehead (especially between your eyebrows), or energy surges in your body. Pain, hot flashes, and chills are also reported.

The body aches and pains may be directly related to regions in the subtle bodies that are blocked or stuck. Headaches may indicate that the third eye is opening. Stomach aches could indicate that you are stuffing your feelings/emotions. Chronic cough and sore throat may indicate a blocked fifth chakra. These symptoms should subside once the energetic condition is cleared and the body has acclimated to the new vibration. Until then, take advantage of acupuncture, aromatherapy, exercise, herbs, homeopathic remedies, mineral and vitamin supplements, salt baths, massage, or other holistic methods necessary to handle the pain.

Because organs and glands within the body are changing to accommodate the light body, you may have a feeling that your arms, hands, feet, or legs may tingle when you are meditating or doing conscious breathing. For more than ten years, I have experienced the sensation that someone is lightly touching or playing with my hair. I’ve also felt that I’m half in and half out of my body or that my spirit is too large to fit inside my skin. It’s hard to explain, but at times it feels like time has no meaning.

Decluttering, Detoxing, and Simplifying 

Sell, toss, and repurpose! Do you sense a need to detox, declutter, and simplify life? You may be asking yourself “Why am I keeping this junk? I don’t even remember why I wanted this item.” My spending patterns have changed. I buy less quantity and higher quality. I have no reservation about purchasing something I want and find I can wait until I find what I really want before I make a purchase.

I’ve been cleaning out and giving stuff away on a regular basis. I can feel the energy shift when I clean a room or closet. Not just my physical dwelling, but my computer files as well. I just can’t stand clutter.

I’ve also been on a reduce-reuse-recycle campaign and admit that it feels good to donate stuff to charity, knowing that someone else may find it useful. I think Lynn Serafinn’s book, The 7 Graces of Marketing: how to heal humanity and the planet by changing the way we sell has had a profound influence on me. While I don’t tend to store things needlessly, I can typically see a new purpose for an old item and I’m quick to adapt it.

You may also get the urge to detox your own body. I find myself asking, “Why do I want to eat/drink this?” If I can’t answer with a reason that satisfies my spirit, I usually find something else to nourish my body.

Increased Emotional Responses 

Have emotional issues you thought were healed reappeared? It is common for old emotional patterns to resurface to be cleansed and healed at deeper levels. You may notice your limiting beliefs and self-destructive patterns emerging. You may have flashbacks of repressed memories stored at the cellular level. Acknowledge these emotions, but stay present and non-resistant. Simply allow them to flow through. On the other side of this coin, you may have fewer emotional responses to what is going on around you. Things that used to bother you doesn’t even register on your “who gives a crap” meter.

Many people in the online groups that I participate in (such as the Empathy Connection on Facebook) are noting an increase in their emotional responses to the pain and suffering of others. They pick up on the thoughts, feelings, emotions, or even physical illnesses around them and may feel sadness, anger, panic attacks, or anxiety that does not belong to them.


We’ve heard so much about the coming shift in our world, but Yvonne Perry’s Shifting into Purer Consciousness is the first truly practical manual for navigating the ascension process. This enables anyone who wishes to raise one’s frequency to have a perfect pathway for ascendency and become the pure light of grace on the planet.  ~ Jackie Lapin, author of the award-wining bestseller Practical Conscious Creation: Daily Techniques to Manifest Your Desires (
