Ascension Signs and Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening and Expanded Consciousness - (*Symptoms of "vibrational shifts")

Please Note: Not all of these symptoms can assumed to be attributed to the ascension process only. Please follow your own inner guidance/intuition, use discernment when necessary and consult a health care professional as needed.

You just 'know' or sense intuitively that something unusual is happening to you that you just can't seem to explain. You just "feel different;" the strange and unusual feelings, thoughts, physical sensations, or "symptoms" you may be experiencing may seem difficult to describe in any logical or rational way. Your body doesn’t respond as it did previously to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual patterns.

You might feel like you are losing your mind or 'going crazy' at times. Your general outlook on life, or the 'reality' you're accustomed to experiencing might start to change abruptly or drastically. You may begin perceiving things in a profoundly different way than you have in the past; a shift in consciousness is starting to occur.

Changes in diet and eating habits, or food preferences; sudden or unexplainable digestion issues, usually not due to any specific dietary cause; sudden food allergies or intolerences. Changes in appetite; fluctuating between feeling hungry all the time to complete lack of appetite. Certain foods might begin to taste differently. Cravings for particular foods you may not have liked before, especially healthier, and more natural foods; sudden dislike of particular foods you might have enjoyed in the past, especially aversions to unhealthy foods, and those processed with chemicals and preservatives.

Physical aches and pains throughout your entire body, or in particular areas that come and go; soreness or stiffness in joints, muscles and bones, for no apparent reason. There may be pain, pressure or soreness in the body; physical tension or stiffness throughout the body or in certain areas that are not due to physical injury, strain or exercise. These physical symptoms can be common,particularly in the back or along the spine, in the neck, shoulder or head region. There may be other uncomfortable or painful physical symptoms in certain areas that come and go suddenly, such as muscle spasms, 'pinprick' or burning sensations.

Unusual changes in vision and visual perception. You may catch glimpses of sparkles, flashes of light, or colors in your peripheral vision; noticing strange shadows out of the corner of your eye. You may have dry or itchy eyes, or blurry vision from time to time, or see haze or static-like energy in air. These physical eye and visual symptoms may occur even after eye problems have been ruled out and not due to eye strain or other physical causes.

You may see auras or colored light around people, animals or objects. You might notice objects start to take on a strange appearance, or may 'morph' or change shape right before your very eyes, and then return to normal; you might notice these 'shapeshifting' effects in animals, people's faces, or even when viewing your own reflection in the mirror. The Third Eye (inner vision) begins to awaken more.

Physical symptoms in the Heart or chest area; related changes in the respiratory or circulatory systems of the body. You may experience spontaneous heart palpitations or heart "flutters", from time to time; a fast heart rate or 'racing heart' that occurs out of the blue. Experiencing pulsating energy, pressure or other strange or unusual sensations in and around the heart and chest area. Sometimes issues with high blood pressure or having extremely low blood pressure. These heart symptoms may occur even when medical issues or conditions have been ruled out, and are usually not related to physical exercise or exertion.

The Ascension process opens and awakens the Heart Chakra, which is the energetic center of spiritual awareness and love.

A common 'ascension' symptom is experiencing pain or pressure in or around the head, or entire skull area, including the eyes, ears, and sinuses, and sometimes in the lower face area, including teeth and gums, and jaw area. The uncomfortable feelings or sensations may be localized to one side only, or might shift from one side to another, from time to time. Frequent headaches; strange sensations in around the head or eyes, such as pinpricks, electrical shocks, a warm 'energy' or burning feeling, tingles or spasms that come and go quickly for no reason. These physical symptoms will usually occur even after any medical condition has been ruled out, and may persist even despite attempts to treat the symptoms with conventional medicines.

These head-related chakra symptoms can be one of the most uncomfortable, often being described as a dull ache or a bizarre 'pressure' near the forehead region or between the eyes. Often, it's described as a 'crushing' feeling inside the head/skull -- as if one's head is going to 'explode', making one want to literally 'bang their head against the wall'. This symptom is also related to (and often accompanies) sinus and allergy issues; extreme sinus pressure, sinus headaches or infections, and allergies.

The Crown Chakra and third eye awaken and energy activations take place.

Stomach ailments or changes in digestion that may or may not be due to changes in diet. Symptoms may include IBS (irritible bowel syndrome), indigestion and other related gastrointestinal issues. Also, bloating or feelings of 'heaviness' in the stomach region, swelling in lower abdomen, or pain/pressure in the lower back. One might experience a pressure in the lower stomach area, or a feeling of being 'full' even if they haven't eaten. Other issues include excessive flatulance/gas, fluctuating between periods of constipation and diarrhea, and acid reflex/GERD related issues.

Issues related to the root Chakra area are common during the ascension process and symptoms related to the release of toxins and other negative energies and emotions being released from the body.

Sudden or gradual weight gain or loss, especially in the abdominal area (developing a "Buddha belly"). These weight fluctuations may occur despite attempts to lose weight in this area, and even if there are no changes in your diet and eating habits, or physical fitness and activity level.

Physical ascension symptoms related to digestion often occur alongside sudden shifts in eating habits or appetite. One might feel full or bloated more often; periods where there is lack of appetite for days at a time, or over-eating and sudden bouts of extreme hunger or thirst out of the blue, and then a sudden shift where one has very little or no appetite or finds it uncomfortable or even annoying to have to 'eat' -- especially if they are feeling in a heightened spiritual 'vibe' or passionately enganged in some other activity.

Experiencing more clumsiness, or bumping into walls or objects more often; lack of coordination control at times; dropping things more often; Feeling lightheaded or dizzy especially when sitting or standing up suddenly.

These symptoms are sometimes associated with developing Clairaudiant abilities, or 'clear hearing'.

Depending on how sensitive you are to energy you might experience instant shifts in vibration, 'timeline shifts', or sudden shifts in awareness or changes in vibrational frequency almost immediately as they occur.
