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!
