25 Signs You May Be Going Through a Spiritual Awakening

Princess is no longer alive on earth, but her sweet spirit is still with me.

Happy Full Moon in Capricorn! If you have not already done so, now is the time to take a look at your own inner truth, your driving forces both internal and external, your personal power and the life choices that you have made. Are you happy where you are in your life? Have you been playing it safe all along? Well if you have like I used to, you will eventually go through an awakening of your soul like I did. Perhaps it has already begun for you.

Below are 25 signs that you may be going through a spiritual awakening right now. The ride may be like a wild and crazy roller coaster some days, but when you feel fully awakened like where I currently am, each day will feel like a brand new day full of joy and unexpected miracles and blessings.

  1. You see your life’s purpose clearly.
  2. You no longer feel close and deeply connected to your loved ones.
  3. You need more peace and solitude to meditate and go inward.
  4. Money and material things has little value and meaning to you.
  5. You spend more time pampering and improving you rather than serving and fixing others.
  6. You feel the need to be in nature daily, especially walking and hiking as your meditation.
  7. You feel connected to children and animals and can be your most authentic self when you are with them.
  8. You find beauty in all that surrounds you and wherever you go.
  9. You appreciate all living things.
  10. You find healing in candlelight baths and aromatherapy.
  11. You no longer need other people to validate your worth.
  12. You strive to become the best version of yourself.
  13. You no longer need to feel needed. You understand that codependency relationships are unhealthy and you avoid being in them.
  14. Your taste in food changes, you only want to eat whole foods with natural ingredients and that are made with love.
  15. You cannot tolerate listening to music that does not feed your soul and awaken your true emotions.
  16. You become a sponge to learning and improving yourself.
  17. You take better care of your mind, body, and spirit including distancing yourself from people who drain your energy and take your light from you.
  18. You can read and feel people, even at a distance and without speaking to them.
  19. You know clearly what you want and what you don’t want.
  20. You dislike being around large chaotic crowds and people who need to drink in order to have fun.
  21. You no longer fear death. Instead, you are excited about what your next life will be like.
  22. You feel the need to express yourself freely without fear, guilt, or shame.
  23. You feel the need to contribute greatly to society by making a difference in yourself and by modeling the behavior you seek.
  24. You love unconditionally and you forgive and forget the pain that others have caused you.
  25. Lastly and for me, I no longer want to settle with any man who I feel is not my equal in mind, body, and spirit. I believe that somewhere out there exists the other half of my soul, my masculine equal, my polar opposite, and my twin flame who is also thinking the same. Soon we shall reunite with Divine timing.

If you are experiencing other signs and transformation, please share with me as I am always interested in hearing your thoughts.

My goddaughter, Emmah reads my mind and feels my emotions which is super amazing. I miss waking up with her next to me.

Finding Strength in Softness, Part 2

I now have no problem enjoying the water in my birthday suit.

You have read the first part of Finding Strength in Softness. Here is part 2 so you can see where she is at in her goddess transformation and awakening journey. Enjoy reading! I am so proud of her!

I think that a lot of women, myself included, feel silly when they dare to think that they’re “sexy.” And the sad truth is that it’s likely because of the criticisms we feel from other women when we own our fierceness.

As an overweight youth, and very overweight young adult, my body is not something I’ve ever reveled in. It was never what gave me confidence or made me feel free. In fact, it was my prison, holding me back from opening up to people, feeling confident, or comfortable in my own skin.

Surprisingly, losing a significant amount weight did not result in those things either. I became perhaps even more self-conscious of my body than I had been previously. What I see now that I couldn’t see then is that self-worth was the key to bringing out that freedom, not the physical changes. And that was  something I had not yet fully developed until earlier this year.

And what naturally happens when you begin to stand fully in your self worth? You get tested.

I now love to flirt and have fun and especially when in front of the camera.

Recently, on a boat outing with my friend and unintentional style goddess and teacher of femininity, tu-anh love, I was presented with perhaps the smallest outfit I’ve ever put on my body and instructed to pose in it for a professional photographer. I’ve worn shirts with double the fabric of this supposedly “full-body” get-up. With two men on the boat with us, I was feeling especially conscious of my body and what it must look like in this teeny piece of fabric. Pre self-worth (and wine), I would have refused. But my will is not as persuasive as the creative life force known as tu-anh.

And I can’t lie… I felt sexy. Like, seriously sexy. And I wasn’t *hating* the encouragement from our men. In this space, with these people, in the sun and on the water (my happy place), I gave myself permission to not overthink it and simply just have fun. I’ll admit, it took all of those elements to get me to that mental space. But now that I’ve experienced that, it’s incredibly difficult to go back.

Fashionably fabulous and free she felt in this little piece of style.

What’s changed since then?

  • I’m not shy about being in a bathing suit — and no longer care that I don’t have a model body.
  • I don’t feel shy about owning my femininity.
  • I flirt, a lot actually. At the gym, the grocery store, walking in my neighborhood…
  • I post photos on Instagram just because I feel sexy and want to share and empower other women. No more shame in my game!
  • I don’t take myself so seriously because life’s too short.

More importantly, what I’ve discovered for myself is that sexiness isn’t about looks. It’s about freedom. Freedom from what anyone else thinks — and freedom from the thoughts that used to hold me back. And wow, the power that can be gained from that. Ladies, I’m daring you to embrace your femininity,  your sexuality and do it with no fear, no shame, and no guilt! I will be back for my finale!

Love House Rules

 

Most men are not even comfortable enough in their own masculinity to wear jewelry. This one believes you need to be balanced in both your male and female energy to be powerful.

It’s not very often that a very manly, confident, and fearless titan comes into my life who inspires my creativity and awakens my soul. And he did exactly those things! My life is no longer the same since my short exchanges with him. Even though our time together was brief because I was leaving for my annual Goddess retreat in the Mediterranean, but every moment I spent with him was well worth it! He challenged me in mind, body, and spirit, especially from a very male perspective. Each time together with him was full of learning and discovering magical and unexpected life surprises. It was fun, creative, spiritually uplifting and thought-provoking. I felt safe, respected, understood, and protected when he was with me. We read each other’s minds on so many levels. He was a fast learner and could keep up with me and adapt to unexpected changes so effortlessly. Perhaps it was because of his athletic background or perhaps God created a real man in him to set an example for all the other men to follow? I don’t know and I will not guess, but all I can say is that it felt like I was with my masculine self.

He taught me so many life lessons without even knowing it. I do believe that he was an angel sent from heaven to help heal me of my emotional wounds, know my self-worth, and to never again settle for any man who is less than my emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual equal. He forced me to go within and look at all of the men in my life through a sharper lens, from family members to friends and lovers. What I discovered is that most of the men in my life currently are simply not strong enough for me emotionally and perhaps even physically, with one or two exceptions. 🙂

Looking back, I would often lower my vibration, tone down my passionate nature and creative self-expression just to match the men I was with. But no more, I assure you. I am so clear of the man I want to be with in the future, and the men I want to surround myself with in the now. No more conservative and uptight ones who on the outside appear strong, yet are so emotionally weak and insecure on the inside that I am left feeling unsafe and unprotected when I am with them. Who is to blame for that but my very own self? I can’t believe it took me 46 years to figure this out (late bloomer, I guess…)

Tonight as I was doing my domesticated goddess arts at home, he came into my mind and it inspired me to polish and refine my tu-anh Love House Rules below for all those who are fortunate enough to be invited over. Please feel free to contribute to my list. I hope wherever this special manliness of a soul and God’s gift to women is that he knows I appreciate and respect him deeply. I am forever grateful to him for transforming my life and awakening my divine feminine with his existence. I am sending love and light his way. I will pray for him to always be his best and most powerful self as our world needs his masculine strength! Stay tuned for more inspirational posts to come inspired by my handsome manly Greek Titan teacher and healer!

P.S. Some of you may be thinking perhaps he and I were intimately or romantically involved. The answer is no. He was my titan muse, my angel protector, my inner strength, and my soul teacher! Perhaps one day…time will tell (smiles)
