Signs and Symptoms
Experiencing the Healing Energies
As the healing energies are working in various chakra centers, you are likely to experience a lot of old repressed memories, sensations and feelings… all part of your “Process”. These experiences are signposts indicating areas the work is affecting, and the stages of your unfoldment. Do not get attached to any one feeling or sensation - as they are all part of the phenomenal reality, they will all shift and change from moment to moment. Remember - you are not your process - underneath it all, you are perfection. The purpose of the healing work is to release all that prevent your human self from fully realizing this.
Depending on the chakras being stimulated, the signs and symptoms of this releasing or “processing” vary.
CROWN - 7TH CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel like your head is being operated on - like someone is sticking needles or rods in your skull (or pulling them out). You might have migraines headaches - signs that energy blocks are being worked on. When stuck energies are released, you may have tingling sensations and or heat in your body (especially in your spine, head, hands and feet). There may be shooting sensations of electricity running through your spinal cord, and bursts and explosions of inner lights. Intuitions may come easily without having to think - you just know what’s “True”.
BROW - 6TH CHAKRA
When this chakra - also known as the “3rd Eye” - is stimulated and opens up, you may have a tingling electrical sensation on your brow (or just sense a presure). You may see colors, shadows, images, sparkling lights, auras, or spirits (and ghosts). Past life scenarios may play out within your inner vision, and your dreams may become vivid and seem quite real.
THROAT - 5TH CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel like speaking copiously and quickly, or singing spontaneously and energetically. You may hear inner sounds, songs, voices or noise. Your telepathy opens up and you can sense people’s hidden thoughts and intentions. Words and sounds start to have more power and meaning, and you can feel the vibrations of people just by their words.
HEART - 4TH CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel it flutter or ache - this indicates that your heart is going through ”growing pains”, expanding in its capacity to love. When sadness is being released, you may cry or weep profusely over the slightest things, or for no reason at all. The heart is a very sensitive center - it feels everything very deeply. You may have periods where you love everyone.. and everything is beautiful and lovely.
SOLAR PLEXUS - 3RD CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, fears may be released in the form of body shakes, or as a loosening of the bowels (diarrhea). When anger is being released, you may feel like yelling and screaming, and all of a sudden feel nauseous and throw up. You may project a more powerful presence you did not have before, as your words are imbued with authority and intensity.
ASTRAL - 2ND CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may have all sorts of sexual thoughts and feelings. Over many lifetimes, you have had many intimate relationships with many souls. If there are any suppressed and unfulfilled sexual energies and attachments with any of them, this will make itself known, or will be processed astrally in your dreams (which helps conveniently avoid the awkwardness of societal constraints). When the energies (and karmas) of these connections are complete, these relationships may shift into a more unconditional form of love, or they will totally release and fall away.
ROOT - 1ST CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel warmth or intense heat in different parts of your body, especially at the base of your spine. Your body may feel very heavy and grounded into the earth, and you may start to gain weight. Your feet may become very sensitive, and you may feel spiraling (vortex) energies going up and down. Your physical connection to nature, the planet, growing and nurturing things (and people) becomes very important.
More Signs and Symptoms
The higher consciousness, vibrations and energies accelerate the release of any stuckness or stagnation in your being. Depending on your souls agenda and the degree of your resistances, this releasing process can be intense or gentle, but in either case, the healing works in the most perfect way.
Distortions in Space and Time
Your material 3-D awareness may shift into and out of various dimensions and you may experience feelings of spatial temporal bodily disorientation - not knowing “where” or “when” you are (in space and time). This is a temporary phenomenon that lasts until you have adjusted, integrated and grounded these new higher vibrational energies.
Aches and Pains
Aches and pains help us be aware of our energy flows, or rather, where they are not flowing (this is one way our body gives us feedback on what is going on “in there”). As the higher consciousness, vibrations and energies move into those places in your body-mind where you are holding old stuck stagnant energies (otherwise known as “blocks”) it may feel like an ache or pain (this includes headaches and flue like symptoms). These symptoms indicate that the physical body is attempting to release the negativity and toxins that have been held inside. These symptoms are perfectly normal. Continue to do the healing work - when the blocks have been completely released, the aches and pains will go away.
Dreaming and Sleeping
The “dream time” is when many of your issues (accumulated over many lifetimes) are processed through the subconscious mind. Dreams may be vivid, violent, sexual, perverse, bizarre, non-sensical, nightmarish, otherworldly, even alien (if it can be imagined, it can be dreamed). Your mind can only use what metaphors, symbols and images that have been programmed into its “computer banks”, and these “images” may not exactly follow past life events, but they are the best approximation of how your mind interprets them. It’s not so much about the details (and drama) of these events… but it’s the processing of the energies behind them that’s important.
Sleeping is one of the ways our conscious ego-mind copes with being energetically or emotionally overwhelmed. Similarly, the higher consciousness. vibrations and energies experienced in a healing will stir up some deep unresolved issues, the processing of which may make you feel fatigued and lethargic. During this time, your conscious ego-mind - that part of you that wants to analyze and rationalize - is put on hold (put to sleep) which helps you process on deeper levels of your soul. When your subconscious mind reaches a saturation point and can take no more (or when your ego-mind takes hold), you shift back into consciousness and wake up.
Healing of any kind takes up a tremendous amount of physical and psychic energy to process… if you are subject to any additional stimulation, this may add more fuel to that fire. If so, you may experience such an exaggerated sensitivity to your surroundings that you may become intolerant to and easily overwhelmed by external stimulations of any kind … be they odd random noises, music, traffic sounds, the TV, people talking, bright or multi colored lights, a smell, strong foods, jarring movements, a touch, or even textures. When you are feeling “fed up”, take a break - do something or go somewhere that helps you process your stuff in peace: exercise at the gym, go for a walk in the park, take a leisurely drive out to the country… you can even stay in your room and sleep. Whatever works for you, do it.
Relationship to Food
As the higher consciousness, vibrations and energies come in to your cellular biological emotional systems, issues connected to your diet may appear, including cellular memories of feasts and famines. You may fixate on emotionally charged “comfort foods”, go through periods of mood swings with unusual cravings, or have a complete loss of appetite. Your body is trying to adjust and balance - don’t fight, don’t judge - processing the higher energies require a lot of nutritional support. The changes that healing brings can be hard on your body emotions and mind - be gentle, honor and respect their needs.
If you are experiencing weight gains, this most likely indicates you are still holding on to something (be it energetic, emotion, vibrational or mental). Keep doing the healing work - this will assist your releasing process. Continue to exercise, eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water.
Worst Case Scenarios
You may find yourself in situations you feared the most
your “nightmares” or “worst case scenarios”.
your pet Fluffy (or Fido) escapes from your house (or yard)
you are laid off (or fired) from a well paying job
your bank account is on empty (or overdrawn)
your car breaks down (or is repossessed),
your spouse runs off with the kids (and best friend)
you lose your home (and live on the street)
there is an illness (or death) in the family
you are mugged (or raped)
someone you love (or you) gets a terminal disease
None of this is pretty, but all are challenges you (along with your Higher Self and the Great Spirit-God) have agreed upon. In time, you will find the silver lining to all these dark clouds, and you will glean the important life lesson, and you will be a better person for everything that happens. Just like Jesus transcended the limitations of his cross, so to will you.
Abandoned Lost and Lonely
You may have very strong feelings about not belonging…
feeling alienated, isolated, estranged and misunderstood…
not fitting in to your work place, home, culture or community…
feeling as if you are done with life and have no other purpose or meaning.
You may feel like ending it all, thinking about suicide
(understandable, but not the answer).
Your life is no accident - you are here for profound reasons…
the completion of which often takes years if not lifetimes.
When life seems so empty and bleak, be patient and hang on.
You are going through a temporary phase that will shift
once you go deeper and deeper into the work.
Dazed and Confused
You may go through phases when you feel spaced out, your speech may be muddled or confused, and you may have a hard time remembering things. You may think you are going insane or must have some serious mental illness… but this is not so. The spacey sensations indicate that your mind is opening up and expand into new and more liberated ways of thinking, feeling and being - you are starting to experience reality outside the box of the 3rd dimension (this is a good thing - you are just not accustomed to it).
Memory and speech is a function of the left hemisphere of the brain… which is associated with worldly, horizontal, linear rational “thinking”. The higher vibrational energies tend to activate the right hemisphere of the brain… which is associated with the spiritual/transcendent, vertical, non-linear, irrational “feelings”. Creating a balance between these 2 hemispheres may involve a temporary diversion or shift of your energies and attentions from off a “dominant” side… on to your “dormant” side. When the 2 sides are balanced, then your memory and speech will return to normal.
Change in Preferences or Personality
You may start to develop a distaste or dislike for the more mundane things in life… such as trivial or argumentative conversations, sports or other amusements and activities, certain kinds of music and movies, drinking alcohol or smoking, synthetic medicines or recreational drugs, your current job or profession, old hobbies and interests, familiar haunts and comfortable habits, politics and parties, national religious or cultural biases, stereotypical attitudes or behaviors, meaningless sexual relationships… family, friends, partners or acquaintances - you may now discover how little you have in common with. All these changes indicate that your energies and vibrations are no longer in alignment to the old - you are being pushed to let go and move on. You are changing from the inside out - becoming a different person… and so too will you want to have and do different things in your life.
Losing a Grip on Attachments
During a healing session, so many extraordinary things are occurring within your energy field and consciousness… one being a losening and releasing of the ego-minds comfortable attachments (“death grip”) it has to its pseudo-identities, behavior patterns and coping mechanisms. The ego-mind (with its limited grasp on the greater reality and higher truths) cannot understand any sort of change, and communicates this to you as fear confusion and anxiety. This is the egos way of trying to force you to constrict the smooth flow of the higher consciousness vibrations and energies and shut it (and you) down and off. When you sense this happening, try to breath deeply and relax. Trust that you are ok and this is all for your highest and best good (and will pass). Know that all these old identifications and ways of being must go in order to clear a space for the new and more powerful and beautiful and wise and true and loving you to come in and take over.
As you let go of those internal pseudo-identities, behavior patterns and coping mechanisms of your ego-mid… and as those external people, places and things that you were so attached to (but did not serve your highest truths) start to leave… you may feel depressed and disillusioned with your life. Again, everything that is not in alignment with the new must be shifted out of the way if the new is to fully come in. Yet… for the old you, until this “new self” comes in and is integrated and grounded, the emptiness felt in this “in between” state can be difficult to tolerate. Be patient - this will shift in due time. Just like the physical birth takes time to come to fruition, so too does it take time (a lot more time really) for the High Self (the “Christ Self”) to be born. But when it does, it will be a cause for you to celebrate for the rest of your lives.
Animals and Children
Because animals and children have so few filters and resistances, they are often much more sensitive and responsive to the higher energies and vibrations around them. As the healing is working on and with you, you may become more attractive to children and animals (because these healing energies around you reminds them of home). In any case, the healing work is very safe.
Electronic Mumbo Jumbo
Any sort of electronic equipment (light bulbs and computers) may be jumbled up or shorted out if they are within your energy field when a particularly high vibrational electro-magnetic energy is channeling through (interesting phenomenon when it happens, unless it’s your computer that crashes). This may be rectified or avoided by spending more time grounding your hands and feet into the earth (and less time around impersonal electronics).
Unexpected events occur that are so unusual and unreal.
People you had nothing in common - are now friends.
Plans made in the past are feeling not right
and you suddenly make surprising new choices.
You are finally breaking out of old patterns
experiencing new ways of thinking feeling and being
…and this is just the start…
Here are a few signals that indicate the presence of the higher energies:
Buzzing, clicking, humming, roaring or ringing sounds, tingling sensations, goose bumps, hair standing on end, floral aromas, feelings of expansion or contraction, heaviness or lightness, numbness or paralysis in any part of your body, electric-like pulses or surges of energy, spinning, vibrations or movement of any kind…
Let it happen as it wants to…
not how you judge or think it should be.
Things will shift and change in their own way.
If you try to control - this will block the flow
and make your process ever so much longer.
If you try to resist - this will use up life energy
and make your process ever so much harder
(and make you very tired).
Give yourself space and time to
"be" with what is happening
alone or with those who are understanding.
Don’t project or blame onto others…
everything you feel is your stuff - your responsibility…
but the healing work will help you.
