Spiritual Awakening Vs. Mental Illness

How do we know when someone is truly aligned with their soul?

Am I losing my mind? Or did I find my soul?

If you have been lead to this article, I can assure you that it has not been by accident or "Coincidence".

Perhaps you have had some strange things happening to you that you feel you would not dare tell a soul about in fear of being cast off of the island by your friends and family..

Or perhaps you are wondering if you are truly losing your mind?

And then some of you know deep within your being what is happening to you, but the human part of you still needs the validation (here it is dear one....).

I can assure you that if you have suddenly found yourself seeing, hearing. feeling, and being things that you never did before (or you always have but now you finally realize it)...

 

That you are NOT alone and you are not going bonkers... you are not losing it.. and you dam sure are not in sane!

YOU Are AWAKE!!!

Awakening in an "un-awake" World

Back in the day when I had my "Spritual awakening", it was the most lonely, awkward, confusing, alienating.. but BEAUTIFUL times of my life.

I was like everyone else who has ever lived within the confinds of the Human Condition..

in my early 30's, working full time as Home Care Nurse manager...managing teams of CNA's and Home health workers by day...

and manager of a husband and 4 kids by night (2 of them teenage boys who were doing drugs and letting girls in their room at night to drink)...

I was doing everything I could to just "get by" day to day like everyone else...

I had the attitude that if I can just get through this I will be fine.....

but when I would "get through" it.... something else would always replace the stresses I was trying to "get through"...

I was sick.... physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually....

I could barely get through the day without having panic attacks.

My life was one giant ball of dysfunction...

I took pills for pills and my pills had pills to take...

I ate whatever whenever like everyone else...

my health was on the decline and I was losing function in my legs very fast...

And although I have always been intuitive, I have always seen things that others didn't , and I have all of my life been able to read people (energy)...

something started happening to me that I couldn't explain on a Human level....

You see I was so desperate to find inner peace and calm from all of the years of traumas and struggles (and to make the panic attacks stop... even if just for a few moments)...

That I started meditating....

JUst a few moments every single night of closing my eyes and focusing on a "Panic attack" video I would choose from YouTube.

I wasn't trying to be "Spiritual" at all... just looking to feel ok for a moment or two...

But the more I would "meditate", the more I would see things when my eyes were closed..

I started to see Angels and people like Jesus and Mother Mary behind my eyelids.

Then after a few weeks, the colors started swirling around and I started to write down what I would experience.

Now mind you, this was back in the day when NOONE was talking about this stuff and I didn't dare share ....

Because I wasn't even sure if it was really happening or if I was truly going Bat shit .....

This went on for a good 6 months and the more I would meditate, the more I would see....

All I knew was that when I was in meditation, I was calm and I could control the panic attacks finally!!!

Suddenly, I had an overwhelming need to clean up my life..... my diet....my emotions...my mind, body, and soul.

I started to hang out at a Rock Shop where I would see a few herbal salves that I made (since I learned how to use Herbs to heal my body at the time)....

Before I knew it I had created a whole new lifestyle.....

One for my highest and greatest good...

Without significantly realizing I was doing it...

I began to ask my "medium" friends at the rock Shop some questions about what I was experiencing.....

They told me "you hear what you hear....you see what you see...you know what you know"

I started to understand that I was connecting with my own soul........

Shortly after that I had my BIG BANG awakening which involved Jesus standing before me

 

I saw a perfect vision of everything that was me... I saw my life flash before me and in an instant I knew that everything I had ever experienced was in preparation of this moment....

 

I heard a voice say "You are a healer, heal as I do!"

 

and that is when the magic started to happen..... once I realized who and what I was!

From that day forward I vowed to live my life to serve Humanity and serve "God" and the"Divine plan"........

 

Now a days... as we all know, I am not shy about speaking loudly to the masses about who and what I am....

 

I want everyone to be able to do the same....

 

but I also know that every journey is different.. every awakening is you-nique...

 

So how do you know if you are having an "awakening" or if you are mentally ill?

 

HOney..... somewhere in your being you know your own truth either way!!!

 

WHen you are aligned with your own soul and your purpose.... you will know!

 

Once you awaken you will have an overwhelming urge to make your life and the lives of anyone around you better, happier, more graceful, more peaceful...

 

You will want to do out of your way to bless someone else any chance you get..

 

You become much more self-less and you understand the Universe on a much larger scale!!!

 

You will see angel clouds, and hearts in the sky and repeated numbers everywhere....

 

You will feel as though you are the Universe and the Universe is smiling down on you in blessings and high fives!!!

 

 

Signs of spiritual Awakening

A "Spiritual Awakening" is truly an "Initiation" into the biggest and best (bad assiest) Army of lightworkers you can ever imagine....

If you have experienced a spiritual awakening, you have come to see through the lies and illusions of this world.

Deep in your soul, you realize that nothing external has ever, and can ever, bring you true happiness or fulfillment.

This profound realization leaves you craving for something richer, more fulfilling, and something that will make you feel whole once again....

You soon realize that YOU are what makes you feel whole again...

It is your life's mission to heal and work through traumas and "Lessons" you came to Earth to work through...

YOU SEE.....

When we have a spiritual awakening, we literally “wake up” to life. We begin to question our old beliefs, habits, and ideals, and see that there is much more to life than what we have been taught.

It is common to ask questions such as, “Why am I here?” “What is the purpose of my life?” “What happens after death?” “Why do good people suffer?” and other questions that examine the fundamental nature of life during your awakening. Spiritual awakenings stir the deepest and most significant questions within us that we have been putting off asking or have been too scared to touch.

BUT YOU BECOME BRAVE..... like never before and you see a much bigger picture....

you think in a much deeper construct of the mind, body, and soul...

YOU ARE THE SOUL.....

Spiritual awakenings happen as a natural product of soulful maturity.

Soulful maturity is the process of inner growth, maturation, and expansion. Just as everything in life grows, so too does our connection with our Souls.

The more you connect to your Soul, the more you experience transformation.

The more you come to embody your Soul, the more you taste true and lasting joy, peace, fulfillment, freedom, and love.

While the spiritual awakening process can feel painful and disturbing at first, it ultimately helps you to live a more meaningful life.

The sensation that your life doesn’t make sense anymore is the product of having all of your former beliefs, desires, and paradigms challenged, and often disproven.

This is often traumatic, but a necessary part of your expansion.

Spiritual awakenings mark the beginning of our spiritual paths.

However, spiritual awakenings can be shocking, painful and extremely unsettling periods of our lives.

Often people who experience spiritual awakenings feel as though their entire lives have been turned upside down and inside out.

This experience can therefore lead to self-isolation and even problems such as depression and chronic anxiety (until you begin to recognize and realize these are parts of your being that have lost their connection to your soul... and you work through them... heal them... and re-align them)...

THis is what I call "Soul" work....

Awakenings are not all glitz and glamour..... not even close!!

they are long and grueling processes of hard and true inner work.....

BUT..... the more layers of your being that you face and understand and you hear....

the better and better and better you will feel...

your life will become something of a story book... if you do the work!

YOU MUST BE WILLING TO TRADE IN YOUR VICTIM-HOOD FOR YOUR OWN GLORY!

How do I know if I am having an awakening or mental illness?

This is the question that everyone wants to know.....

I can assure you that if you are feeling inspired to help Humanity heal and you truly feel the calling deep inside of your being to face every single one of your demons...skeletons in the closet....your fears and anxieties...

If you are feeling a strong overwhelming need to forgive and let go of your potato sack you have carried on your back....

If you are ready to become the ultimate you... where you balance your mind, body, and soul and you feel the need to live your life to help others...

You are experiencing a spiritual awakening (Hearing your heart/LOVE voice).....

HOwEVer......

If you or someone you know is experiencing

Depression, mood swings, anxiety, fear, that is not followed by that feeling of it being a blessing so you can work through it please get help right away.

Depression can be a side affect of spiritual awakening, because as you first "awaken" you can feel very isolated if those around you are not feeling or experiencing the things you are...

But Mental illness is definately a whole different story..

Mental Illness vs. Awakening

According to psychiatry.org "Major mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder rarely appear “out of the blue.” Most often family, friends, teachers or individuals themselves begin to recognize small changes or a feeling that “something is not quite right” about their thinking, feelings or behavior before a illness appears in its full-blown form"

Now mind you... spiritual awakenings are sudden.......... its an awakening!!!

MANIA

Do you feel manic? It’s different than the increased intensity and energy that comes with spiritual awakening. People who are manic have an excess of unstable energy that is always seeking external experience, release, stimulation.

SPiritual awakenings are alignment with your own soul so you will feel more peace, more serenity, and a more inward feeling of a higher purpose...... in humble gratitude.

GRANDIOSE THINKING

Do you feel special, important, or chosen?

Spiritual awakening dissolves the hard reality of your ego; whereas ego or psychotic thinking or feelings will cause someone to feel as if they are the only way or they are the only truth and that evereyone must do it their way....

SPiritual awakening will make someone feel as though they are one of the many who are a spark of divnity....

Those who are truly "enlightened" and aligned with their souls will be humble to serve humanity in community with everyone...

There will be a strong feeling of being a part of something much larger than life.

Signs of psychosis are ones that feel they are the only enlightened or awakened one and only they know the truth for all..... wanting everyone to "follow" them. (they will be more interested in how many online followers they have rather than how they can serve and help create peace on Earth.....

Somone who is truly enlightened knows that awakenings are not all glitz and glamour.. they are hard deep inner work and change for the betterment of ALL....

Someone who is truly enlightened feels an overwhelming need to retreat and go within and is more interested in silence and creating sacred space with unity..... they will most likely be more interested in being alone to better themselves so that they can help others do the same...

not so much looking for competition to see who can get the most followers or people to adore them.....

VOICES

Do you hear voices that tell you to do things that are dangerous, drastic or hurtful to yourself or others? Not a good sign!

That would be a sign of mental illness or negative energy attachment (EGO)...

Please seek help immediately...

If you are hearing the voices of your highest divine team and your higher self it will always be empowering, uplifting, and you will feel alignment with a holy energy like you have never felt before......you will feel the pure bliss of arriving into your soul mission

If the voices you hear do not inspire you to be your very best... please seek help from a spiritual counselor or psychiatrist.

ANOREXIA

If you are experiencing sudden inedia or what many call Breatharianism, how is your body doing?

Are you losing a lot of weight?

It’s okay and normal to shed extra pounds, but not more than that.

At no time should you feel tired, low energy or wasted.

Your immune system should remain strong, and all outward signs of health, such as skin, nails and hair, should be in good condition.

You should not experience dizziness, weakness, or really anything negative.

And you shouldn’t be trying to be inedic! Your body either needs food or it doesn’t, it’s not something you make happen.

Spiritual awakening should inspire you to eat healthy and view your body as a sacred vessel of love and light.......

You will feel inspired to be healthy in mind, body, and soul so that you can align with your highest path and purpose......

A lot of these examples will help you understand going from EGO Mentality to awakening into a more heart centered "soul" mentality....

someone who is awakened is always conscious of unity and doing deep inner soul work for the highest and best good of all Human evolution!

Although you can go through depression and anxiety during awakenings as you heal and shift into your highest self...

There is always a significant difference in the journey home to the heart vs. the path of self destruction.

please always follow your intuition for it will never lie to you!
