- People Start To Dislike You
Jealousy is an integral part of human character which tends to increase in those around you as they become aware you are moving on to a different plain of experience. People may begin to refer to you as a dead beat dad, convicted felon, kicker of dogs, or the guy who never flushes the toilet. All of which may be true, but the only reason they are willing to judge you on these minor personality quirks, is because they see the spiritual direction you are taking and have become envious of your journey.
- Uncontrollable Emotions
One minute your enjoying your Denver omelette and the next your beating your waiter over the head with a ketchup bottle. A spiritual awakening can be so overwhelming your conscience mind may have difficulty keeping your physical self under control. Don't be afraid of those three hour crying fits or your urges to assassinate a high ranking official, they are all part of the awakening process and should be embraced, not ignored.
- You Desire Greater Freedom
You may begin to feel shackled by your job, your home, your possessions, and even your relationship. This is nothing more then your inner self telling you your job sucks, you live in a dump, you don't have shit, and your girlfriend thinks your an ass hole. Follow your spiritual instinct by throwing it all away and getting a primered van and a dog with a bandana, only then will you be slightly less miserable then you are now.
- You Talk To Yourself In Public
How many times have you seen someone talking to themselves in public and thought, "I wonder what they would smell like if I lit them on fire?" We have all had that thought at some point, however what we don't realize is they are not some crazy person pooping on the sidewalks and screaming about the price of coconuts, they are actually getting in touch with their inner being through self dialogue. Never be ashamed to put your thought out to the universe, it's something we all do when alone so why not do it in front of strangers as well.
- You Feel Your Emotions More Fully
We all experience a wide range of emotions, but people in the midst of a spiritual awakening will feel them more intensely. Spiritual people tend to cry a lot and will often throw punches when questioned on why they are sobbing. Conversely, unstoppable fits of laughter will arise at inappropriate times, such as during funerals or police interrogations. Don't hold these emotions back, instead let them flow, it may seem embarrassing at first, but as your spiritual instincts grow so too will your indifference toward the people not smart enough to be like you.
- You Create A New Belief System
Everyone who experiences spiritual awakening releases their unproven, contradictory belief system, written by scientifically ignorant ancients, and replaces them with their own unproven, contradictory belief systems, written by their scientifically ignorant selves. This is not only a good sign, but can be a great deal of fun as you dream up ethereal worlds and magic being who have the power to smite the wicked and annihilate evil, but chose not to because where's the fun in that?
- A Sudden Desire To Wear Sandals and Grow Dreadlocks
As your spiritual self emerges you may begin to feel the need to express your new self to the world around you. Don't expect the people at the office to understand why your wearing a loin cloth to work, or your wife to appreciate why you no longer bathe, this is all part of the process. Show people what's happening on your insides by expressing it on your outsides, to some that may mean wearing flowing white garments of scented cotton, to other it may mean smearing yourself in feces and howling to God on the roof of your house, it's all up to you.
- You Begin To Think Nonsense Is Real
Where you once believed a crystal to be nothing more then a pretty stone, you now think it has healing powers that can regrow your hair or drive you home when your too drunk to do it yourself. This is a sign your mind is opening up to the spiritual realm and should be embraced completely. Forget about what science and logic tell you, your spirit self knows far more about physics and astronomy then some closed minded academic with multiple degrees and a billion dollar telescope.
- You Begin To Smoke Marijuana
This is most likely something you should have been doing much earlier in life. It will help you get in touch with your spirit beings and make PIXAR movies even better then they already are. It also helps you to feel slightly less foolish when playing your bongos in the park as children point their fingers and laugh.
