Do people ever call you an old soul? Do you feel like you notice things that others don’t see? Just the fact that you’re here in this moment, reading this right now, says that you’re ready to send your growing vibration out into the world. Maybe you’ve felt this way all your life, or maybe you’ve only felt the shift recently. In either case, it could mean that you are experiencing a spiritual awakening, which is a higher level of awareness of yourself and the world. Here are a few signs that may indicate you are going through this transformation.
1. Different sense of the passing of time
Time is relative to the person experiencing it. If you are able to notice the passing of time as faster or slower depending on what you’re doing, that shows you have a great growth of consciousness. Those conscious of the passing of time tend to have mature spirits.
2. A Desire for Change
People who are in tune with their spirits often have a desire to change things — not only in their own lives, but in the lives of others as well. A sudden desire to change your career path or lifestyle could point to a spiritual awakening.
3. A Feeling of Connection with the World
When your spirit awakens, you may start feeling more in sync with nature. Just as we all have our places in the world to make a difference, so do the thousands of species of plants and animals on the Earth.
4. Increased Empathy
A spiritual transformation may heighten your ability to understand what others are feeling. This can tie in with a desire for change, since you might find yourself falling into despair every now and again as you recognize the hardships of other people. Even though it may not always be pleasant, however, it takes people like you to spread the kindness and love that the world needs!
5. A Need for Solitude
Sometimes needing an evening to yourself can be a sign of spiritual growth. Spending time alone is a great way to come up with inspiration and new ideas. The weight of the world can be heavy for deep thinkers, so there’s nothing wrong with taking the time to refresh.
If you’ve dealt with any of these feelings, it’s possible that your spirit is going through a transformation. Your soul has something to say or do — and it’s important. Sometimes gaining wisdom can be a challenge, but embracing changes can also help you build confidence and find success. Spiritual maturity helps you slow down and appreciate the little things so you can live a happier, healthier life.
