I spiritually awakened many moons ago, and I had my fair share of bizarre spiritual awakening signs while doing so! I’ve found that now that I’ve gone through the initial spiritual awakening, things have plateaued and calmed down.
But, during the whole first year that I was awakening, I thought I was going completely crazy! I’ve talked to many people experiencing these same signs of awakening in 2023. These spiritual awakening signs are totally bizarre and probably some of the more extreme signs that you are awakening.
If you’ve read my book, My Bizarre Spiritual Awakening: How I Overcame Grief & Addiction to Spiritually Awaken & Create My Own Reality!, you know my story. In a nutshell, my fiancé died when he was quite young, of a very painful aggressive cancer.
During this process, I began using substances to numb my feelings that were too painful to feel. Grief, loss, sadness, depression, and helplessness all consumed me as I struggled to “cope” with what was happening to my first love.
I believe I experienced the most extreme spiritual awakening signs because I was an extreme case. I needed something to get my attention fast, or I probably wouldn’t be alive and writing this now.
I was buried so far down in all the worst parts that the third dimension has to offer, that I couldn’t see my way out. I needed the Universe to “severely shake me to awake me”. And, if the awakening signs hadn’t been completely bonkers, I don’t think I’d have paid much attention.
WHAT CAUSES A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING?
Table of Contents
Many times, spiritual awakening’s are caused by your need for extreme changes to be made in your life. You may begin changing, but need extra guidance, help and support to make necessary habit changes.
Change can be hard and scary, and this is where Divine guidance is so crucial to supporting you in your intention for living a healthier, happier life.
Spiritual awakening’s can begin simply by your asking for Divine assistance from the spiritual realms, or they can begin when you quit strong addictive substances, such as alcohol or opiates.
HOW LONG DOES A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING LAST?
As with everything in life, spiritual awakening times vary depending on the person awakening. Your awakening may take months or a few years. If you need a LOT of Divine assistance, then your awakening will likely take longer.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING?
There are many common symptoms associated with spiritual awakening, also known as Ascension Symptoms. These typically include headaches, fatigue, and ringing in the ears.
Most people who are spiritually awakening also experience more awareness within their physical bodies. You taste, touch, smell and feel things as if it’s your first time.
An extreme sense of purpose also usually accompanies a spiritual awakening. You may feel a sudden need to help others, animals or the environment without knowing why.
You may also crave fresher, more vibrant foods, full of color and nutrients. As well as wanting to spend lots of time outdoors and in nature.
WHY IS SPIRITUAL AWAKENING SO PAINFUL?
Light codes to ascend to a fifth-dimensional reality are entering our dense third-dimensional minds and bodies. This causes huge amounts of emotion and pain to be released, that we must process, deal with and let go of.
For many, the emotional turmoil experienced during awakening and ascension is more difficult to deal with than the physical symptoms. (Although those can really suck too! Especially the fatigue!)
We buried those emotions from our past for a reason, they were too painful to look at. We thought we moved on, when in reality we simply hid the pain in a deep dark box and never looked at it again.
We never learned how to process, learn from and grow from the pain. We never allowed ourselves to feel, cry about, look at, and learn from painful experiences.
So, we’ve carried it (usually in our root chakras). This makes the spiritual awakening process a necessary part of our ascension to a higher, lighter, faster way of being.
You CAN NOT take your baggage with you to the fifth dimension. It has to come out, be looked at, felt, and healed in order for you to move on.
This is what makes the spiritual awakening process so painful – All of your pain and denseness, being released at once.
HOW CAN I SPEED UP MY SPIRITUAL AWAKENING?
In order to speed up your spiritual awakening, you have to do the work. You have to heal your mind, body, Soul, inner child and spirit – to move on from the awakening process.
This takes LOTS of self-care, self-love, motivation, determination, and the desire to want to learn what you need to learn, so that you can hold yourself in a fifth dimensional perspective.
Things like drama, gossip, addiction, over-eating, greed, shame, doubt and fear will make your spiritual awakening take much longer.
It is crucial that you learn mindfulness meditation, eat lots of healthy high vibration foods, heal from past trauma, and go in nature often to speed up your spiritual awakening.
The only way out is through… But, you ABSOLUTELY CAN do this!
Between stressing over bills, worrying about changes with your job, keeping food on the table, and all the craziness going on in the world right now – It is completely normal to feel tired, overwhelmed, anxious, and uncertain!

12 BIZARRE SPIRITUAL AWAKENING SIGNS
1- YOU MAY BEGIN TO HEAR VOICES AS YOU’RE SPIRITUALLY AWAKENING
I hadn’t heard much of anything for a long time, including my own intuition. I drank too much, took way too many prescription drugs, and never ate High Vibration Healthy Foods. I was mad at everyone and everything, including God, or Source, or the Universe or whatever you want to call “All That Is”.
I decided I couldn’t live the way I was living any longer and asked the Universe for help. And man, did the Spiritual Realms help! A lot!
It was almost overwhelming. As I got sober, I started hearing pieces of my own broken psyche, or what I lovingly refer to as my “Inner Dick (I write more about it in this post)”, yelling at me. I also started hearing loving helpful guidance from various Spirit Guides.
Also known as clairaudience (the psychic ability to hear Spiritual Realms), I had never experienced this before in my life. It was extremely confusing to wade through the noise of technology stuck in my brain, my own thoughts, my inner critic, and my spirit guides at first.
But, little by little through a lot of Mindfulness Meditation (You can read about the Mind-Blowing Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation here!), I figured out that the loving guidance came from guides as answers to my questions and the “excessive noise” was from me and technology.
I kept thinking I was “crazy and watched”, and a loving voice would replace my words with “guided and inspired”.
2- SEEING ORBS OF LIGHT IS PRETTY COMMON DURING A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
While you are spiritually awakening, you may begin to see fast moving orbs of light. Usually out of the corner of your eye.
While I was awakening, I saw a lot of orbs, usually darting from one corner of the room to the other. They’d disappear out the window or out a corner of the room into the wall.
Many guides, angels, and Beings of Light come to assist you while you are awakening. They are made of lighter, faster vibrations than us, and can move very swiftly.
I rarely see orbs anymore, but know my guides or angels are there when I ask for assistance.
3- FEELING A LOVING TOUCH FROM A SPIRIT GUIDE ON THE SHOULDER OR HAND
You may also sometimes feel the energy of a spiritual guide or angel who has come to help with your awakening touch you. I would most often feel the energy as a gentle touch on my hand or shoulder to let me know that I was not alone.
The gentle touch was always peaceful, loving, and calmed me down, so I welcomed their energy and support.
4- HEARING LOVING KNOCKING ON WALLS TO AWAKEN YOU
The spirit world can communicate with us through knocks or taps on the walls as well. I would often hear a knock or tap on the wall right after I would have an important thought or epiphany as my next steps towards healing and rebuilding my life.
These loving knocks helped me take notice of the fleeting thought since I was far from being fully mindful yet! (My favorite Mindfulness Meditation Ancient Technique!)

5- RECEIVING AWAKENING PHONE CALLS BETWEEN 2AM – 4AM WHEN NO ONE IS THERE
Often called “The Witching Hour”, 2 am – 4 am is an important time for receiving Divine Guidance and support!
But, if you are sent a message from Spirit at 3 am, and stay asleep, then you probably won’t remember that dream or important message.
That’s when I started to receive actual phone calls. My phone would ring from an all zeros number and wake me up! No one was ever on the other end of the line. I’d answer and just hear static.
That’s when I started paying close attention to the dream I was having just before I received the call. I’d write down whatever impressions, angel numbers, or animals I’d seen in a Dream Journal to help me keep track!
Sometimes I’d see angel numbers or animal totems that I could easily look up upon waking. Other times, I’d wake up after actually communicating with a Spirit Guide or Archangel!
If I hadn’t received the phone calls, I never would’ve woke up to remember these beautiful messages!
Here are some beautiful dream journal options from Amazon!
SIGNS OF A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING – RECEIVING SECRET MESSAGES
Receiving secret messages is another sign of a spiritual awakening. You may see and receive all sorts of signs from the Universe telling you that you are on the right path!
For example, I’d see symbols in clouds and look them up in dream journals. Or, you may receive secret messages through the television or radio that have a specific message to give you at that particular moment in time!
Another example I can think of, is my Netflix would stall at the exact moment that someone had just conveyed an important message.
The Universe seemed to be pausing it to get me to take notice!
I got a LOT of pauses during messages that had to do with balance, detoxing and letting go of fear during my spiritual awakening!
And, I paid attention!
If you believe you are receiving secret messages during your spiritual awakening, take notice…
However, as with anything, you can take this too far.
Be wise and discerning with messages from television and radio as they can become confusing and overwhelming.
I started to ignore any message that scared me or made me feel inadequate. The Universe and your guides would never try to scare you or make you feel less than.
Sometimes, I would have to turn off the television and radio all together and go into nature to calm my mind (since spiritual awakenings can be sooo overwhelming!).
6- BEING ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY WITHOUT YOUR GLASSES OR CONTACTS
For the life of me, I can’t get this side effect of spiritual awakening to come back! I could see without my glasses or contacts for the first time since the 8th grade!
Not only could I see, but I could see farther than I can with my contacts now. I could see close up as well. I’ve read about people’s eyes being healed once they ascend into the fifth dimension. But unfortunately for me, this spiritual awakening sign was short lived.
7- FEELING LED BY SONGS, ANIMALS, OR SYNCHRONICITIES
While spiritual awakening, you may begin to notice songs playing in grocery stores or gas stations that seem to be speaking directly to you.
I would hear songs in grocery stores that I had literally never heard in my life but would be the exact message I needed at the time. Alternatively, if a song is making you feel bad or seems to be putting you down, just ignore it! Focus on the positive!
Animals may also begin to do strange things. For example, my cat would jump up on me sometimes between 2 am – 4 am to wake me from an important dream as well.
One time, while at a family campout, I decided to drive down the road a ways to check for phone reception. I promised my husband I would only go 5 miles and set my travel mileage log to make sure I didn’t get lost.
As I was driving, my mind started to wander and I was looking more at my phone than watching the road. Just then a giant bull elk walked in front of my car and stopped in the middle of the road. He did not budge and stared directly at me.
I looked down at my mileage and had driven exactly 5 miles! I still wasn’t getting phone reception and remembered the promise to my husband to not get lost (since I have no sense of direction!). I immediately turned around and went back to camp!
Synchronicities often turn up as a spiritual awakening sign. Strange, unexplained synchronicities that don’t seem to be mere coincidence such as angel numbers.
I would go to the store and my total bill would be $3.33. Then I would be following a bus with the number 333 ten minutes later. Then I’d get home and accidentally step on my remote and it would turn to the channel 333! That’s when I started looking up angel numbers and their meanings.
8- PERCEIVING “DIMENSIONAL SHIFTS” IN TIME OR SENSING SIMULTANEOUS TIME
This one was very strange indeed and sometimes still happens, although not nearly as much. I’d be putting food out for my cat and watching her run up to me, when I swear I’d see her running in for dinner from a different direction out of the corner of my eye.
When I’d fully turn my head to look, the 2nd version of my cat wouldn’t be there anymore. It was as if I was perceiving an “echo” of cat running in on another day. This made me think of the Matrix! LOL!
I’d also be talking to someone and get the distinct feeling that a part of me was doing something completely different somewhere else. This is known as simultaneous time.
We are multidimensional beings with multiple life perspectives. Outside of the construct of this limited 3rd dimensional time/space reality, time doesn’t exist.
It is only an illusion put here for our learning and growth. So, while I was spiritually awakening, every now and then I’d catch of glimpse of what other parts of my multidimensional self was doing!
It was very bizarre and very cool!
9- SEEING FACES OR ANIMALS AS YOU FALL ASLEEP IS A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING SYMBOL
I would see animals or faces of people in my face as I fell asleep. The animals and people seemed sooo familiar, but I could never quite place them.
I could never figure out if these faces and animals were from “past lives”, ancestors, spirit guides, or friends and animals from higher dimensions – that know my Soul.
I’ll still see an occasional face or animal as I meditate or fall asleep, but not near as many as when I was awakening! And I still have no idea who they are! I just know that they are loving and friendly.
10- HAVING WAY BETTER KUNDALINI SPIRITUAL AWAKENING SEX
(Sorry guys, no picture for this one!)
While awakening, you may experience something called a “Kundalini Awakening”. Sometimes, as we awaken, a powerful force called Kundalini, or “coiled one” is unblocked or released from your root chakra (located at the base of your spine).
Kundalini is likened to a “coiled serpent” started in your root chakra being awakened, released and unblocked. This circulates an incredible amount of energy starting at your root chakra that powerfully flows up through your chakras, or energy centers, until it explodes out of the top of your head (crown chakra).
For me, kundalini awakening felt like a lightning bolt exploding through my body and was very invigorating and intoxicating. The kundalini awakening is euphoric and can release a sensual side of you that you didn’t even know you had.
Suddenly every energy center in your body is unblocked, on fire and awake! This makes sex super fun, invigorating, sensual, and feel 10 times better! Instead of just feeling an orgasm in the lower part of your body, you feel it powerfully through your whole body as it bursts through your head!
11- PSYCHICALLY SENSING YOUR SPIRITUAL “WINGS” AWAKENING AS WELL
As you awaken, you may begin to sense pressure, tingling, or slight pain in your upper back area. A lot of people who have spiritually awakened or are awakening now are Earth Angels, or incarnated angels.
Your “ethereal wings” are simply energy that crosses your body and represents your ability to fly in the higher dimensions.
I had the ability to “fly” in dreams as a child! I lost it as I grew up (how very Peter Pan, I know!). As you’re awakening, you may sense the regaining of this energy circulating and strengthening! You may have beautiful dreams of flying again, or astral project to incredible places!
This is just another bizarre and amazing sign of spiritual awakening! Old energy patterns and blockages are being released and allowing for the strong flow of new energies and your higher self to come through you!
12- SPIRITUAL TELEPATHY WITH ROCKS, CRYSTALS, ANIMALS, OR CHILDREN
Our multidimensional selves are telepathic. The words and sounds we use here through our physical bodies are much denser, slower vibrations than how we communicate in the higher dimensions.
In the higher dimensions, we communicate through telepathy and simply knowing. This is much faster! Plants, animals, children, and yes, even crystals are usually of a much higher vibration than adults. Their extra sensory perception and psychic gifts are heightened compared to the adults on the planet.
You may telepathically “hear” or even “feel” what a plant, child, animal, or even crystal wants or needs. I often communicate telepathically with my two young children while they are sleeping and I’m meditating.
While spiritually awakening, you are often very sensitive to all or many of your psychic gifts and ways your Soul communicates in the higher dimensions, telepathy included.
Final thoughts on my super bizarre list of 2023 Spiritual Awakening Signs
There are many very common spiritual awakening signs that can be either unpleasant or euphoric! The above bizarre list was a result of me being sooo far off my path that I needed to awaken faster than most!
If these bizarre spiritual awakening signs are happening to you, you are not alone and things will get better! If you are having some of the more common signs of a spiritual awakening, then count your blessings! It means you weren’t terribly off your path to begin with!
