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
Advice: Get 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.
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
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 heart chakra.
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.
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.
Changes in eating habits:
Strange cravings and odd food choices. Some find they are not as hungry as
they used to be. Or hungrier.
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.
8 Amplification of the senses. Increased sensitivity.
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 released.
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 it.
Changes in prayer or
meditation. Not feeling the same sensations as before. Not having the same
experience of being in contact with Spirit.
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.
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
Looking younger. Yippee!
As you clear emotional issues and release limiting beliefs and heavy
baggage from the past, you are actually lighter.
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 real.
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.
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
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.
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."
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.
A sense of impendingness.
There is a feeling that something is about to happen. This can create
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 comfortable.
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
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.
"Teachers" appear everywhere
with perfect timing to help you on your spiritual journey: people, books,
movies, events, Mother Nature, etc.
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.
You are moving through
learning and personal issues at a rapid pace. You sense that you are
"getting it" quite readily.
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
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 fun!
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
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.
mechanical malfunctions: When you are around, lightbulbs flicker, the
computer locks up, or the radio goes haywire.
34 Increased synchronicity and many small miracles. Look for more of these.
Advice: 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.
abilities and altered states of consciousness:
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.
A sense of Oneness with
all. A direct experience of this Wholeness.
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.
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.
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.
thoughts and desires more quickly and efficiently.
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.
Dizziness. This occurs when
you are ungrounded. Perhaps you have just cleared a big emotional issue
and your body is adjusting to your "lighter"
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.
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
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.)
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 more desirable.
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
