A spiritual awakening is a beautiful and complex process. Spiritual awakening anxiety, unfortunately, is also a symptom that goes with it. But why is this?
Maybe you’re becoming increasingly disillusioned with the world around you.
TV seems pointless. You watch how other people treat eat other with horror. You wonder why people are ignoring major humanitarian issues and focusing on the latest celebrity story to break.
Wait a minute.
Maybe there’s something wrong with you?
Stop right there!
This is a common feeling among people who are experiencing their own awakening. In fact, it’s commonly called spiritual Awakening Anxiety.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the feelings that arise with this anxiety and what else you can expect during your spiritual awakening.
A lot of the time, people feel like they’re not normal, that they don’t fit in. Or there’s something wrong with them if other people can’t see what they see.
This is not the case at all. In fact, with a little bit of research, you will find the symptoms of your spiritual awakening are shared by many.
What is Spiritual Awakening Anxiety?
Often with change comes a big dose of fear. We’re afraid of the unknown, afraid of being different, afraid of not fitting in.
Remember, you are letting go of life-long beliefs. The entire way you are looking at the world is changing. Everything you once thought as true, is slowly being turned on its head.
Who’s NOT going to feel anxious with such an upheaval?
As humans, we have the unique ability to analyze everything to such a degree, we cause tremendous doubt within ourselves.
Add this trait to the fact that we are now vibrating at a level more in line with the universe and our entire being feels out of whack.
Why Do People Get Spiritual Awakening Anxiety?
The biggest fuel for fear is not knowing. People are afraid of what they don’t know and what they don’t understand. This has been the way for countless years and this is the way it will continue for most people.
However, understanding a situation removes the fuel and rids us of the fear. This is how we make it through the anxiety that comes with a spiritual awakening.
Know that this anxiety, and feeling almost as if you’re completely different from those around you, is a perfectly normal part of a spiritual awakening.
Not only this but as you’re going through your spiritual awakening, you’ll feel like you’re only now learning the most important knowledge. Like everything you knew before was distorted in some way that prevented you from seeing the truth of everything.
This breakthrough allows the fear to dissipate and you’ll find that fear lessens across many areas of your life. This knowledge settles inside you as a kind of calmness. A protective shield that blocks the negative energy that would previously cause you to panic.
How to Deal With Spiritual Awakening Anxiety
Knowing what is happening will help you to ease your anxiety and start focusing on the positive changes that will enter your life.
You will be able to focus on your life purpose and start concentrating on why you’re here. If you’ve been stuck in a job you find no meaning in or surrounded by people who fill your life with negativity, you’ll now find the strength to address these issues.
You’ll naturally gravitate to like-minded people. People who have gone through, or are going through, their own spiritual awakenings.
Staying in your job just for financial security seems ludicrous to you now. Your newly developed spiritual intuition will allow you to identify what you are meant to do.
Once you’ve stumbled across your purpose, your overall spiritual health will soar. You will question how you could ever have spent time doing anything else. Things will also start falling into place. This is known as synchronicity and is what happens when we align ourselves with our life purpose.
How Do I Know if this is Spiritual Awakening Anxiety?
It’s also important to mention here that it’s important to identify if the anxiety you’re feeling is related to your spiritual awakening or not. Anxiety in general is nothing to be ashamed of, most of us experience it at some stage.
In fact, look at the following passage from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America:
“Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.” – AADA Facts & Statistics
As I said, a huge amount of us will experience anxiety at some stage of our lives. If you believe you might be feeling some of the struggles associated with anxiety, it’s an excellent idea to reach out to a therapist or health professional that will help to guide you through this experience.
So, what you should do now?
Quite simply. However, now that you know what is happening to you, that in itself should lessen the impact of anxiety.
You now understand what is happening. The emerging spiritual senses are conflicting with your physical ones and it will take you a little time to adjust to this.
However, you also understand the benefits that are in store for you.
Because now you’ll find the strength to start living the life that you were always meant to. Preventative emotions such as jealousy, anger or greed don’t have a hold over you anymore and you feel free!
Free from the constraints society has bound people by, increasingly so in the last several years.
Free to live your purpose, improving your life and the lives of others.
Free to really start living your life
Once you allow yourself to feel this way, the spiritual awakening anxiety will fade and you’ll be able to appreciate life in a brand new way.
