Achieving a higher level of consciousness isn’t accomplished by wishful thinking; it requires commitment, diligence, and sacrifice. Yet, the rewards far outweigh the discomfort. There have been times when I questioned my sanity as I walked this path, feeling very alone.
I’ve had to confront my fears at every turn—I spent many a night in the early 1990s lying on the bathroom floor, physically sick from emotional despair. There were times when I fought to repress my intuition as this internal guidance tried to lead me into truth that my mind could not accept and that my church would not approve of. I lost many friends who began to think of me as too far removed from the traditional teachings of the Christian faith in which I was raised. Without information or a guidebook or guru, it took me years to realize that physical and emotional pain comes from resisting the ascension process. There was no one to tell me how to regain my emotional health so I could keep going forward. But I survived it all and now I’m coaching others to help them understand and navigate the ascension process. I am available to help you with a light language treatment session.
Having said that, I will give a few signs, which indicate that we as individuals and a collective society are going through a spiritual awakening. While writing this chapter on symptoms, it seems that the universe wanted me to experience as many as possible! I’ve had most of them. This list is by no means complete, but these are a few of the more common symptoms that people have reported in regards to spiritual growth.
