Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, hot feet, waking up two or three
times a night. Feeling tired after you wake up and sleepy off and on
during the day. There is something called the Triad Sleep Pattern that
occurs for many: you sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up, go back to sleep
for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleep again. For
others, the sleep requirements have changed. You can get by on less sleep.
Lately I have been experiencing huge waves of energy running into my body
from the crown. It feels good, but it keeps me awake for a long time, then
used to it. Make peace with it and don't worry about getting enough sleep
(which often causes more insomnia). You will be able to make it through
the day if you hold thoughts of getting just what you need. You can also
request your Higher Power to give you a break now and then and give you a
good, deep night's sleep. If you can't go back to sleep right away, use
the waking moments to meditate, read poetry, write in your journal or look
at the moon. Your body will adjust to the new pattern.
2. Activity at the crown of the head: Tingling, itching, prickly, crawling
sensations along the scalp and/or down the spine. A sense of energy
vibrating on top of the head, as if energy is erupting from the head in a
shower. Also the sensation of energy pouring in through the crown,
described as "sprinkles". This may also be experienced as pressure on the
crown, as if someone is pushing his/her finger into the center of your
head. As I mentioned in #1, I have been experiencing huge downloads of
energy through the crown. In the past, I have felt more generalized
pressure, as if my head is in a gentle vise. One man related that his hair
stood on end and his body was covered with goosebumps.
Advice: This is
nothing to be alarmed about. What you are experiencing is an opening of
the crown chakra. The sensations mean that you are opening up to receive
3. Sudden waves of emotion. Crying at the drop of a hat. Feeling suddenly
angry or sad with little provocation. Or inexplicably depressed. Then very
happy. Emotional roller coaster. There is often a pressure or sense of
emotions congested in the heart chakra (the middle of the chest). This is
not to be confused with the heart, which is located to the left of the
your feelings as they come up and let them go. Go directly to your heart
chakra and feel the emotion. Expand it outward to your all your fields and
breathe deeply from the belly all the way up to your upper chest. Just
feel the feeling and let it evaporate on its own. Don't direct the
emotions at anyone. You are cleaning out your past. If you want some help
with this, say out loud that you intend to release all these old issues
and ask your Higher Power to help you. You can also ask Grace Elohim to
help you release with ease and gentleness. Be grateful that your body is
releasing these emotions and not holding onto them inside where they can
do harm. One source suggests that depression is linked to letting go of
relationships to people, work, etc. that no longer match us and our
frequencies. When we feel guilty about letting go of these relationships,
depression helps us medicate that pain.
4. Old "stuff" seems to be coming up, as described above, and the people
with whom you need to work it out (or their clones) appear in your life.
Completion issues. Or perhaps you need to work through issues of
self-worth, abundance, creativity, addictions, etc. The resources or
people you need to help you move through these issues start to appear.
Advice: Same as
#3. Additionally, don't get too involved in analyzing these issues.
Examining them too much will simply cycle you back through them over and
over again at deeper and deeper levels. Get professional help if you need
to and walk through it. Do not try to avoid them or disassociate yourself
from them. Embrace whatever comes up and thank it for helping you move
ahead. Thank your Higher Power for giving you the opportunity to release
these issues. Remember, you don't want these issues to stay stuck in your
5. Changes in weight. The weight gain in the US population is phenomenal.
Other people may be losing weight. We often gain weight because many fears
we have suppressed are now coming up to the surface to be healed. We react
by building up a defense. We also attempt to ground ourselves or provide
bulk against increasing frequencies in our bodies.
freak out, but just accept it as a symptom of where you are right now. You
will release/gain the weight when all your fears have been integrated.
Release your anxiety about this. Then you might find it easier to
lose/gain the weight eventually. Exercise. Before eating, try this: Sit at
the table with an attractive place setting. Light a candle. Enjoy how the
food looks. Place your dominant hand over your heart and bless the food.
Tell your body that you are going to use the food to richly nourish it,
but that you are not going to use the food to fulfill your emotional
hungers. Then pass your hand from left to right over the food and bless
it. You may notice that the food feels warm to your hand even if the food
is cold-- I like to think that the food is good for me when it feels warm
and nourishing to my hand. I have also noticed that when I practice
blessing the food, I don't eat as much. It is important not to let
yourself off the hook when you forget to bless the food before you eat. If
I've forgotten and I've nearly finished eating, I bless the food anyway.
That way I don't slip out of the habit. Another thing you can do is to
stay present while eating -- don't watch TV or read. Heartily enjoy what
blessings are before you.
6. Changes in eating habits: Strange cravings and odd food choices. Some
find they are not as hungry as they used to be. Or hungrier.
deny what your body tells you it needs. If you are not sure, you might try
muscle-testing before you chose a food to see if it's what your body
wants. Also try blessing the food as described in #5.
7. Food intolerances, allergies you never had before: As you grow more
spiritual, you are more sensitive to everything around you. Your body will
tell you what it can no longer tolerate, as if it, too, is sloughing off
what doesn't serve it anymore. You might be cleansing yourself of toxins.
Some people find they often have a white residue in their mouth, much like
that of runners at the end of a race.
acupuncturist told me that this film can be removed by sloshing 2
tablespoons of cold-pressed olive oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes
(don't swallow, whatever you do), then spitting it out into the toilet --
not the sink, for you just removed toxins from your body and don't want
them in the sink. Brush your teeth and do the same. Then clean your brush.
(Sorry this is yukky, but it works.)
8. Amplification of the senses. Increased sensitivity.
8a. Sight: Blurry vision, shimmering objects, seeing glittery particles,
auras around people, plants, animals, and objects. Some report seeing
formerly opaque objects as transparent. When you close your eyes, you no
longer see darkness, but a redness. You may also see geometric shapes or
brilliant colors and pictures when eyes are closed. Colors appear more
vivid -- the sky might look teal or the grass an amazing green. Often I
see grids running across the ground. As you become more sensitive, you may
see shapes or outlines in the air, especially when the room is almost
dark. When your eyes are open or closed, you may see white shapes in your
peripheral vision (these are your guides).
vision is changing in many ways -- you are experiencing new ways of
seeing. Be patient. Whatever you do, do not be afraid. Hazy vision may be
relieved by yawning.
8b. Hearing: Increased or decreased hearing. I once thought I would have
to pull off the road because of the painfully amplified sound of my tires
on the freeway. Other symptoms are hearing white noise in the head, beeps,
tones, music or electronic patterns. Some hear water rushing, bees
buzzing, whooshing, roaring or ringing. Others have what is called audio
dyslexia-- you can't always make out what people are saying, as if you can
no longer translate your own language. Some hear strange voices in their
dreams, as if someone is hovering near them. You can either ask the
presence(s) to leave or ask Archangel Michael to take care of the
situation. Again, there is nothing to fear.
Surrender to it. Let it come through. Listen. Your ears are adjusting to
8c. Enhanced senses of smell, touch, and/or taste. I notice I can now
smell and taste chemical additives in some foods in a rather unpleasant
manner. Other food may taste absolutely wonderful. For some people, these
enhancements are both delightful and distracting. You might even smell the
fragrance of flowers now and then. Many of the mystics did. Enjoy it.
9. Skin eruptions: Rashes, bumps, acne, hives, and shingles. Anger
produces outbreaks around the mouth and chin. I had a dermatitis on my
extremities for several months that accompanied healing an episode from my
past. When I had worked through most of the issue, the condition was
Advice: You may
be sloughing off toxins and bringing emotions to the surface. When there
is an issue to be released and you are trying to repress it, your skin
will express the issue for you until you process the emotions. Work
through your "stuff".
10. Episodes of intense energy which make you want to leap out of bed and
into action. Followed by periods of lethargy and fatigue. The fatigue
usually follows great shifts. This is a time of integration, so give into
with the nature of the energy. Don't fight it. Be gentle with yourself.
Take naps if you are tired. Write your novel if you are too energized to
sleep. Take advantage of the type of energy.
11. Changes in prayer or meditation. Not feeling the same sensations as
before. Not having the same experience of being in contact with Spirit.
Difficulty in focusing.
Advice: You may
be in more instant and constant communion with Spirit now and the
sensation may therefore be altered. You will adapt to this new feeling.
You are actually thinking acting in partnership with Spirit most of the
time now. You may find your meditation periods shorter.
12. Power surges: All of a sudden you are heated from head to toe. It is a
momentary sensation, but uncomfortable. In contrast, some people have felt
inexplicably cold. I have experienced both. More recently I experience
waves or currents of energy rolling through me. Sometimes the energy seems
so intense when it first comes into my body that I feel a little
nauseated. But if I think of the energy as divine and let go of fear, I
feel wonderful and enjoy the sensation. If you are an energy worker, you
may have noticed that the heat running through your hands has increased
tremendously. This is good.
Advice: If you
are uncomfortable, ask your Higher Power, that if it be for your best and
highest good, to turn down/up the temperature a bit.
13. A range of physical manifestations: Headaches, backaches, neck pains,
flu-like symptoms (this is called vibrational flu), digestive problems,
muscular spasms or cramps, racing heartbeat, chest pains, changes in
sexual desire, numbness or pain in the limbs, and involuntary
vocalizations or bodily movements. Some of us have even had old conditions
from childhood reappear briefly for healing.
Remember what I said about seeking medical help if you need it! If you
have determined that this is not a medical condition, relax in the
realization that it is only temporary.
14. Looking younger. Yippee! As you clear emotional issues and release
limiting beliefs and heavy baggage from the past, you are actually
lighter. Your frequency is higher. You love yourself and life more. You
begin to resemble the perfect you that you really are.
15. Vivid dreams. Sometimes the dreams are so real that you wake up
confused. You may even have lucid dreams in which you are in control. Many
dreams may be mystical or carry messages for you. And in some dreams, you
just know that you are not "dreaming" -- that what is happening is somehow
will remember what is important for you to remember. Don't force anything.
Above all, stay out of fear.
16. Events that completely alter your life: death, divorce, change in job
status, loss of home, illness, and/or other catastrophes -- sometimes
several at once! Forces that cause you to slow down, simplify, change,
re-examine who you are and what your life means to you. Forces that you
cannot ignore. Forces that cause you release your attachments. Forces that
awaken your sense of love and compassion for all.
17. A desire to break free from restrictive patterns, life-draining jobs
consumptive lifestyles, and toxic people or situations. You feel a
compelling need to "find yourself" and your life purpose -- now! You want
to be creative and free to be who you really are. You might find yourself
drawn to the arts and nature. You want to unclutter yourself from things
and people that no longer serve you.
Advice: Do it!
18. Emotional and mental confusion: A feeling that you need to get your
life straightened out--it feels like a mess. But at the same time you feel
chaotic and unable to focus. See #45.
your ear to your heart and your own discernment will follow.
19. Introspection, solitude and loss of interest in more extraverted
activities: This stage has come as a surprise to many extraverts who
formerly saw themselves as outgoing and involved. They say, "I don't know
why, but I don't like to go out as much as before."
20. Creativity bursts: Receiving images, ideas, music, and other creative
inspirations at an often overwhelming rate.
least record these inspirations, for Spirit is speaking to you about how
you might fulfill your purpose and contribute to the healing of the
21. A perception that time is accelerating. It seems that way because you
have had so many changes introduced into your life at an unprecedented
rate. The number of changes seems to be growing.
Breaking your day up into appointments and time segments increases the
sense of acceleration .You can slow time down by relaxing into the present
moment and paying attention to what's at hand, not anticipating what's
ahead. Slow down and tell yourself that you have plenty of time. Ask your
Higher Power to help you. Keep your focus on the present. Try to flow from
one activity to the next. Stay tuned to your inner guidance... You can
also warp time by asking for it. Next time you feel rushed, say, "Time
warp, please. I need some more time to -----." Then relax.
22. A sense of impendingness. There is a feeling that something is about
to happen. This can create anxiety.
is nothing to worry about. Things are definitely happening, but anxiety
only creates more problems for you. All your thoughts -- positive or
negative-- are prayers. There is nothing to fear.
23. Impatience. You know better, but sometimes you can't help it. You want
to get on with what seems to be coming your way. Uncertainty is not
to live with the uncertainty, knowing that nothing comes to you until you
are ready. Impatience is really a lack of trust, especially trust in your
Higher Power. When you focus on the present, you will experience miracles
-- yes, even in traffic.
24. A deep yearning for meaning, purpose, spiritual connection, and
revelation. Perhaps an interest in the spiritual for the first time in
your life. "Constant craving", as k.d. lang says. The material world
cannot fulfill this longing.
your heart and the way will open up for you.
25. A feeling that you are somehow different. A disquieting sense that
everything in your life feels new and altered, that you have left your old
self behind. You have. You are much greater than you can possibly imagine.
There is more to come.
26. "Teachers" appear everywhere with perfect timing to help you on your
spiritual journey: people, books, movies, events, Mother Nature, etc.
Teachers may appear to be negative or positive when you are trapped in
polarity thinking, but, from a transcendent perspective, they are always
perfect. Just what you need to learn from and move on. By the way, we
never get more than we are ready to master. Each challenge presents us
with an opportunity to show our mastery in passing through it.
27. You find a spiritual track that makes sense to you and "speaks to you"
at the most profound levels. Suddenly you are gaining a perspective that
you would never have considered before. You hunger to know more. You read,
share with others, ask questions, and go inside to discover more about who
you are and why you are here.
28. You are moving through learning and personal issues at a rapid pace.
You sense that you are "getting it" quite readily.
remembering that things will come to you when they are ready to be healed.
Not sooner. Deal with whatever comes up with courage and you will move
through the issues rapidly.
29. Invisible presences. Here is the woo-woo stuff. Some people report
feeling surrounded by beings at night or having the sensation of being
touched or talked to. Often they will wake with a start. Some also feel
their body or bed vibrate. The vibrations are caused by energetic changes
after emotional clearing has taken place.
Advice: This is
a sensitive topic, but you may feel better blessing your bed and space
around it before you sleep. I rest assured that I am surrounded only by
the most magnificent spiritual entities and am always safe in God's care.
Sometimes, however, the fear gets to me, and I call in Archangel Michael
and/or Archangel Uriel. I don't beat myself up for being afraid sometimes.
I forgive myself for not always sovereign at 3:00 a.m.
30. Portents, visions, "illusions", numbers, and symbols: Seeing things
that have spiritual importance for you. Noticing how numbers appear
synchronistically in your awareness. Everything has a message if you take
the time to look. I enjoy the experience of "getting the messages." What
31. Increased integrity: You realize that it is time for you to seek and
speak your truth. It suddenly seems important for you to become more
authentic, more yourself. You may have to say "no" to people whom you have
tried to please in the past. You may find it intolerable to stay in a
marriage or job or place that doesn't support who you are. You may also
find there is nowhere to hide, no secrets to keep anymore. Honesty becomes
important in all your relationships.
to your heart. If your guidance tells you not to do something, speak up
and take action. Say "no". Likewise, you must also say "yes" to that which
compels you. You must risk displeasing others without guilt in order to
attain spiritual sovereignty.
32. Harmony with seasons and cycles: You are becoming more tuned to the
seasons, the phases of the moon and natural cycles. More awareness of your
place in the natural world. A stronger connection to the earth.
33. Electrical and mechanical malfunctions: When you are around, light
bulbs flicker, the computer locks up, or the radio goes haywire.
Advice: Call on
your angels, guides, or Grace Elohim to fix it or put up a field of
protection of light around the machine. Surround your car with blue light.
34. Increased synchronicity and many small miracles. Look for more of
Synchronistic events tell you if you are heading in the right direction or
making the correct choices. Honor these clues and you cannot go astray.
Spirit uses synchronicity to communicate to you. That's when you begin to
experience daily miracles. See #30.
35. Increased intuitive abilities and altered states of consciousness:
Thinking of someone and immediately hearing from them. More
synchronicities. Having sudden insights about patterns or events from the
past. Clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and other psychic phenomena.
Intensified sensitivity and knowing. Awareness of one's essence and that
of others. Channeling angelic and Christ-consciousness energies.
36. Communication with Spirit. Contact with angels, spirit guides, and
other divine entities. Channeling. More and more people seem to be given
this opportunity. Feeling inspiration and downloading information that
takes form as writing, painting, ideas, communications, dance, etc.
37. A sense of Oneness with all. A direct experience of this Wholeness.
Transcendent awareness. Being flooded with compassion and love for all
life. Compassionate detachment or unconditional love for all is what lifts
us up to higher levels of consciousness and joy.
38. Moments of joy and bliss. A deep abiding sense of peace and knowing
that you are never alone.
39. Integration: You become emotionally, psychologically, physically, and
spiritually stronger and clearer. You feel as if you are in alignment with
your Higher Self.
40. Living your purpose: You know you are finally doing what you came to
earth for. New skills and gifts are emerging, especially healing ones.
Your life/work experiences are now converging and starting to make sense.
You are finally going to use them all.
to your heart. Your passion leads you to where you must go. Go within and
ask your Higher Power, "What is it you would have me do?" Watch for
41. Feeling closer to animals and plants. To some people, animals now seem
to be more "human" in their behavior. Wild animals are less afraid. Plants
respond to your love and attention more than ever. Some may even have
messages for you.
42. Seeing beings of other dimensions. The veil between dimensions is
thinner, so it is not surprising. Just stay in your sovereignty. You are
more powerful than you can ever imagine, so do not entertain fear. Ask
your guides for help if you slip into fear.
43. Seeing a person's true form or seeing loved ones with a different face
-- past life or parallel life.
44. Physically manifesting thoughts and desires more quickly and
your thoughts. All thoughts are prayers. Be careful what you ask for.
45. Left -brain fogginess. Your psychic abilities, your intuitive knowing,
your feeling and compassion, your ability to experience your body, your
visioning, your expressiveness all emanate from the right brain. In order
for this side of the brain to develop more fully, the left brain must shut
down a little bit. Normally the left-hemisphere's capacity for order,
organization, structure, linear sequencing, analysis, evaluation,
precision, focus, problem-solving, and mathematics dominate our often
less-valued right brain.
What results are memory lapses, placing words in the wrong sequence,
inability or no desire to read for very long, inability to focus;
forgetting what you are just about to say; impatience with linear forms of
communication (audio or written formats); a feeling of spaciness, being
scattered; losing interest in research or complex information; feeling
bombarded with words and talk and information; and a reluctance to write.
Sometimes you feel dull and have no interest in analysis, lively
intellectual discussion, or investigation.
On the other hand, you might find yourself drawn to the sensate: videos,
magazines with photos, beautiful artwork, movies, music, sculpting,
painting, being with people, dancing, gardening, walking, and other
kinesthetic forms of expression. You may search for spiritual content,
even science fiction.
Advice: You may
discover that if you allow your heart and your right brain to lead you,
the left will then be activated appropriately to support you. And someday
we will be well-balanced, using both hemispheres with mastery.
46. Dizziness. This occurs when you are ungrounded. Perhaps you have just
cleared a big emotional issue and your body is adjusting to your "lighter"
yourself by eating protein. Sometimes "comfort food" feels right. Don't
make any food right or wrong for you. Use your guidance to know what you
need at any given moment. Take your shoes off and put your feet in the
grass for a couple of minutes.
47. Falling, having accidents, breaking bones. Your body is not grounded
or perhaps your life is out of balance. Or your body may be telling you to
slow down, examine certain aspects of your life, or heal certain issues.
There is always a message. When I recently broke my ankle, I understand
that my ankle was taking on what I myself refused to deal with. And that
was all of the above.
grounded by taking your shoes off and putting your feet in the grass; even
better, lie down on the grass without a blanket under you. Feel the earth
beneath you. Get out in nature. Slow down and pay attention. Be mindful
about what you are doing. Feel your feelings when they come up. Stay in
the present. Surround yourself with blue light when you are feeling shaky.
49. Heart palpitations. A racing heart usually accompanies a heart
opening. It only lasts for a few moments and means that the heart is
re-balancing itself after an emotional release. I had one episode that
terrified me: I woke up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding.
I thought it was going to come right out of my chest. It only happened
once and was, I understand, a huge heart-chakra opening. But I did check
it out. There is nothing wrong with my heart.
Remember what I said about getting medical attention when needed. Consult
your doctor about any conditions you are not comfortable with.
50. Faster hair and nail growth. More protein is being used in the body.
Too bad we can't tell the body where to grow the hair and where not to
grow it. (Or can we? Hmmm.)
51. A desire to find your soulmate or twin flame. More than ever before,
the idea that we can have a relationship that matches who we are seems
truth is, we have to be the kind of person we want to attract.
We have to love ourselves and where we are right now before we can attract
a more "perfect" mate. The work begins at home. Here is how I think it
works: Hold the desire for this person in your heart, but without
attachment. Expect that someday you will meet someone who is more suited
to you, but let go of any expectations as to who this will be and how it
will happen. Focus instead on cleaning up your own life and being the kind
of person you want to be. Be happy now. Enjoy your life. Then you may
52. Memories surface. Body memories, suppressed memories, images of past
lives and/or parallel lives. We are healing and integrating all our
"selves", so expect to have some of these experiences.
Advice. Keep in
mind that it is best to recall what only what comes to mind, leave the
rest alone, don't analyze everything to death (because you will be stuck
in the tape loop of infinite issues to process), and feel your feelings as
they come up. Ask for help from your guides.
