Upgrades: That One Weird New Awakening Symptom

symptoms of awakening

The Awakening process is comprised of upgrades to all aspects of YOU: Mind, Spirit and —Good Lord!—your Physical Body.

That sounds like fun.  Being upgraded. Right? Not always so much fun. Let’s take a quick look at what upgrades to each part of YOU could look like.


Upgrades to your Mind are made so that you can use it more efficiently.

For a human, you just may feel like you are freaking out.  Know that these are positive upgrades, and the symptoms will subside.

Some common symptoms include:

  • Hearing a song whose lyrics feel like they were written just for you.
  • Seeing repeating numbers.
  • Overhearing conversations of others that answer a question you just asked yourself 5 minutes ago.

These experiences are indications that your mind is recognizing patterns, signals and prompts that were programmed there (by YOU) to switch “on” at a certain point in your life. That’s great news!  Start taking note when these prompts occur, because they always have relevance if you’re aware of them.


Upgrades to your Spirit Body are made to align your connection with Source.

Symptoms from spiritual upgrades vary widely among individuals.  Here are the most common:

  • Spaciness or Light Headedness
  • Decreased inclination to “play society’s game” anymore
  • Isolation: you’d rather be alone than with people

Experiences such as this are signals that you’re more in alignment with your Higher Self.  The veil of forgetfulness is lifting, and you are strengthening the connection to the part of you running the show.  Your ability to consciously create has just magnified itself exponentially.


Upgrades to your Physical Body are made to change your chemical composition.

As scary as that sounds, these improvements are changing your actual physical structure from a carbon-based being to a crystalline-based entity. You’re now even closer to your pure Essence, which is Light. You are integrating back into your Light Body.

Yet the physical symptoms that your body feels could be scary.  Here are a few:

  • Flu Symptoms from out of nowhere
  • Sleep disruption; waking up at 3am
  • Vibrations in your hands or feet

There could be some pain; that’s also normal.  My suggestion is that if something feels wrong, then please see a medical doctor (in accordance with your beliefs) to rule out anything biologically that needs balance.

Otherwise, if your gut tells you to wait it out, then such symptoms usually subside in 3-5 days.

Here’s the newest, weirdest physical symptom I have been experiencing:

You know when you’re on a plane, and it makes a sharp descent?  Like you’re falling straight down? Your stomach raises up in your chest cavity and you are suddenly shot into a super-conscious state.

Think about when that happens.  No matter what you’re doing, you always, always stop what you’re doing to recognize that weird feeling in your gut.

Yet it’s not a great feeling when you’re sitting stationary, strapped into a car in gridlocked Los Angeles traffic. Or when you’re eating on the patio at a fancy restaurant. It will catch you off-guard every time.

So if this symptom occurs in you, take advantage of that super-consciousness and connect with Source.  It’s trying to get your attention to deliver an important message.


These symptoms are just a short list of many you may be experiencing in your journey to awakening.  Some of them really suck, but thankfully most of them are brief.
