The Purpose of Anxiety During Spiritual Awakening (and how to ease it)
For me, spiritual awakening anxiety was by far one of the worst symptoms. I know how truly awful it can feel, and how urgently it needs to be soothed – so with that in mind, lets not waste any time.
Before we even begin getting into the nitty gritty of this article, particularly if you are reading this racked with that fearful all encompassing feeling of anxiety right now, I want you to know 3 key things:
- Anxiety is a NATURAL part of the awakening process (it may be natural, but its not actually necessary)
- The anxiety that you’re feeling absolutely WILL PASS and
- Its actually a sign that you’re right on track
In order for you to understand why, lets first take a look at what happens during the actual awakening process so that we can understand this better.
The Spiritual Awakening Process (simplified)
• At a predetermined moment or time, large quotients of energy begin to flood your system.
• This influx of energy opens the psychic centers and heightens them intensely.
• Emotional centers are opened which makes them extremely sensitive and brings all our emotions right up to the surface for healing.
Why Is Anxiety A Natural Part Of Spiritual Awakening?
Spiritual awakening anxiety is natural because when those large quotients of energy begin to flood our system, our energy bodies are highly charged. Think of it like leaving a charger in the electrical socket too long. We get charged so much that we’re practically buzzing, and there’s nowhere for that excess energy to go.
Now, it has good purpose – it awakens us, and it opens us up to heal our emotions and reconnect with source through our psychic senses – however, it is not necessary for you to feel anxious in order to awaken. Its really important that you grasp this, so I’ll say it again.
It is not necessary for you to feel anxious in order to awaken.
However, our bodies have likely never experienced a volume or intensity of energy like this, ever. It often perceives it to be anxiety when really, its just energy – we’re just super charged – and our bodies simply don’t have enough physical density to be able to balance it out or to anchor us to the earth.
It feels like anxiety, but really, it is just energy.
The good news is, that if we can anchor that energy to the earth, and hold enough physical density in our bodies to absorb it, the energy can be balanced, and the anxiety can be released. We do that with grounding.
There are more benefits to boot from grounding your awakening than just releasing anxiety; it will also lessen emotional intensity, bring more control and stability to your awakening and release doubt and confusion by helping your brain to rationalize and understand the experience.
Its absolutely vital, and a large part of your awakening journey will be focused on learning how to straddle both the spiritual and physical worlds in a balanced way. We’re learning to become the bridge that unifies both heaven and earth.
What Is The Purpose Of Spiritual Awakening Anxiety?
However, I know there will be many of you feeling caught in the trap of a relentless cycle of spiritual awakening anxiety. I know how truly awful that can feel, but if it helps, this anxiety and ungrounding is usually followed by something rather remarkable. You see it is in the process of swinging from super charged to super grounded that a kind of mini-enlightenment occurs.
It is the grounding which allows us to come to epiphanies, realizations and powerful cognitive shifts.
People don’t realize how vital the grounding is in this process – and neither did I. It wasn’t until I finally made the link that I realized that the grounding HAD to happen for me to integrate the spiritual knowledge and wisdom I was being shown.
I’d wake up, my stomach in knots and my heart tight with anxiety, fluttering away and I’d mutter to myself about how this awakening journey was more of a curse than a blessing, and how it was so darn out of control.
I’d fret the whole day, and try to inspect some source or cause for my anxiety, but to no avail, until I’d sit down to meditate at night – and then explosions would occur. Without a doubt, it was on those worst days of anxiety and nerves that generally led to a powerful, incredible insight about myself or life. I’d meet a new guide, connect to a higher level, or come to a new awareness. It was incredible.
Am I Miles Off Track?
Not at all. Now, I’m not advocating the use of anxiety in order to have higher spiritual experiences.
Its important that you know that the anxiety is a sign that you are being:
- energetically heightened or
- psychically/ spiritually opened
This is all under divine control. You are perfectly safe as this process occurs, and its all pre-destined anyway. Its actually a sign that you’re right on track, and you are moving through your awakening experience. In fact, lets repeat that…
You’re on the right track.
How Can I Ground My Energies?
However, if you want to gain the most from these heightened experiences and times, you need to GROUND yourself in order to actually make use of the new insight. In fact, if you’re really ungrounded – you might not even be aware that you had a heightened experience, or gained new wisdom (if that’s you, you need to ground yourself, pronto!).
You see, if you don’t become the middle man in bringing this higher energy down THROUGH you and into the real world then it hasn’t had a chance to be manifested. The reason you are given these insights is to share them with the real world – otherwise you’d still be up there with all your insights looking down.
Being present in the physical world means some kind of action is required. Perhaps its as simple as smiling at a stranger, and beaming that energy towards them, perhaps its to assist you in serving some cause or higher purpose, or maybe you’re even supposed to teach what you’ve learned.
Regardless of the path it is destined to take, you are the bridge between heaven and earth and its time for you to take action. Not only will it begin to integrate your higher wisdom, but it will make your spiritual awakening A LOT easier in the process.
