I woke up the other day with mild grade anxiety. A flutter of uneasiness in my heart.
There’s a lot of mounting unrest in Hong Kong – with no clear end in sight.
Seeing my hometown in such a state of separation and divisiveness is heart-breaking to witness.
From our family’s standpoint, it’s also had me questioning the future…
No matter where you live in the world, we’re all facing different anxiety and uncertainty about the future. We’re also feeling the constraint of this in our bodies — whether we’re sensitive to it or not.
If you’re anything like me, the default mode can be to try and armour up and not feel “too” much for fear of being completely taken over by it.
But the truth is feeling these darker emotions (anxiety, uncertainty, constraint or whatever you’re feeling these days) doesn’t make us broken.
These emotions are simply something that is present in the body and ready to be felt, expressed and released.
This is a normal process that is needed to restore our nervous systems back to equilibrium.
Sounds simple. But we forget to do this!
Sometimes the state of the world will send us into a spin…other times it’ll be more personal challenges.
Questioning your career choice, your relationship or where you’re living.
OR wondering why you keep getting sick and you’ve lost your usual energy/spark.
If you’re feeling out of sorts and are facing what feels like a life crisis…
This week I want to talk about how your life crisis might not be a crisis at all and might be a spiritual awakening.
Short on time? Read on for the transcript.
How do you know a spiritual awakening is happening to you?
There are 3 giveaways (more on that soon).
Many of us are going through a crisis of sorts where the old paradigm of what works and who we are isn’t really working or true anymore.
When something happens in life whether it be a divorce, death, incident, health scare, trauma or something else – it can wake us up to the fact that things aren’t working.
And it’s in these moments and times aka crisis points that we start to wake up and question much more deeply:
Am I really working hard towards the right things?
What is my version of success?
Why am I doing what I’m doing?
And when you’re asking these deeper questions beyond the superficial changes that may be the answer, you know you’re onto something much more important than just what job should I apply for, how can I get a promotion or maybe I should try a yoga class.
Here are 3 signs that you might be having a spiritual awakening.
#1: You feel like you’re going crazy
Your heart might be pulling you towards things that your head just can’t get around.
Maybe that looks like your voice telling you to:
…..quit your job.
…..travel when you don’t have that much money in your bank account.
…..give up coffee so that you can get really clean and healthy.
#2: You’re experiencing a heightened sense of perception
Maybe you becoming more sensitive. Not necessarily just to food or personal care products that you put onto your skin or into your body.
This may translate into your relationships in your life – becoming sensitive to the people in your life and their energy.
Or perhaps walking into certain environments. Some people are empathetic towards spaces and can feel the energy of the people who have visited that room before.
#3: Sensing a need to pay attention to your well-being
You may be starting to wake up to the fact that you have to look after your health. You can’t just have 5 cups of coffee a day and power through without going to the gym anymore.
Those are just 3 of the big signs that you’re going through a spiritual awakening and re-attuning to making some big changes in your life.
It could be really disorientating if this is happening to you.
I know I’ve gone through a spiritual awakening and I still continue to go through the uncertainty of it all.
All I can say is that whilst you’re in the process it can feel like a bit of a storm really difficult where you don’t know which way is up or down.
Your centre of gravity has been knocked off course and you feel like the world as you know it has changed….
But please trust that this is happening for a reason and that it’s opening you up to create some really positive and empowering change in your life.
If you need some support on what’s going on for you I’ve got a few spots open in my Soul Aligned Woman Program which is all about helping you get back to what it is that you really want from life, how you can make it happen and how you can actually make a unique contribution to the world simply by being yourself.
You apply for more information + schedule your call to explore it with me HERE.
