Below, you’ll find fifteen signs commonly experienced during spiritual emergencies:

  1. You find it impossible to cope with everyday tasks (like going shopping, showering, cooking, keeping up with the bills, etc.)
  2. You can’t hold down a job due to your intense sensitivity 
  3. It feels like your whole world is crumbling around you
  4. You struggle to sleep properly and may experience night terrors
  5. Your inner and outer world blur confusingly
  6. You experience a rollercoaster of emotions
  7. You may experience strange hallucinations (e.g., images, sounds, physical impressions)
  8. Your grasp on the real and logical is weak (resulting in psychotic-like symptoms)
  9. You may believe, at some point, that you’re the reincarnation of enlightened figures like Jesus, Buddha, Mary, etc. (this is called ego-inflation and is a result of Universal Consciousness overlapping with your own personal consciousness)
  10. You may experience vivid past-life flashbacks
  11. You feel strange sensations in your body (e.g., vibrations, shivers, heat, burning)
  12. You’ve developed a medically unexplainable illness
  13. You experience more synchronicity or meaningful coincidences
  14. You feel like you’re being sucked into a different dimension or black hole
  15. You feel like you’re going crazy

Also, those who work in the mental health field may have a thing or two to say about the above list of symptoms. Yes, it’s true that many of the above symptoms overlap with ‘bipolar disorder,’ ‘manic-depression,’ ‘schizophrenia,’ etc. We’ll explore this important overlap a little later – and what it means for you.
