It is when we are not encouraged to use it that it disappears to the sidelines. When you have a psychic awakening, that is just your sixth sense coming to the forefront! 

In this article, we will tell you all you need to know about psychic awakenings, including the signs of them and how to embrace them.

So, if this is of interest to you, read on for more! 

What Are Some Common Causes Of Psychic Awakenings?

There is no one determining factor for a psychic awakening. However, there are definitely some triggers that keep creeping up time and time again. Let’s check out the examples in further detail below! 

  • Near-death experience/accident – Sometimes, accidents or near-death experiences can cause a psychic awakening. They can also trigger the ability to see spirits, also known as mediumship. 
  • Childbirth – When you have a child, you may become attuned to their needs, being able to sense them at any time. This is often a lead into a psychic awakening. 
  • Energy or healing work – Your sixth sense can be reignited by partaking in healing or energy work such as Reiki, past life regression, or cranial sacral therapy. These are forms of spiritual healing that have the ability to shift your energy and raise your vibration. 
  • Loss of a loved one – Spirituality often becomes a comfort for many people when a loved one passes on. This is a divine connection that is often linked to a psychic awakening. Your spirit energy sensitivity can also be heightened by feeling the presence of a loved one. 

10 Signs Of Psychic Awakening And How To Embrace Them

Here are ten common signs of psychic awakening and how to embrace them!

1. A Change In Eating Habits 

When you are beginning to reignite your sixth sense, you may start to crave foods that are lighter, no matter the season! So, if you find yourself craving a salad in the middle of winter, you may be having a psychic awakening! 

This is because fruit and veggies have higher vibrational energy than other foods, like potatoes, meat, etc. So, you will naturally crave them more than your favorite foods whenever your intuition begins to awaken! 

You should embrace this sign by following a psychic diet. This will keep your energy feeling light, while also keeping you feeling better emotionally, physically, and spiritually (just don’t forget it is important to keep a balanced diet!)

2. Intuitive Hits 

An intuitive hit is better known as a gut feeling. A gut feeling is an instinct about something or someone, as opposed to an opinion formed on information or fact.

Gut feelings are best listened to, as they can be a sign of your psychic awakening. 

However, they are not the only form of an intuitive hit! Other examples include the feeling that you are divinely guarded, and experiencing signs that you don’t think you can ignore. Sometimes, you may even experience visions from your third eye.

Intuitive hits are an extremely exciting experience for some people. For others, it can be scary and discomforting. 

You should embrace intuitive hits by telling yourself that you will not receive any visions or messages that may frighten you. Then, you need to practice using it on yourself.

Practicing using your intuitive hits will help you to become more familiar with them and they will come to you more naturally. 

3. Feeling Pressure Or A Tingling Sensation 

Feeling pressure or a tingling sensation may also be a sign of your psychic ability awakening. This will likely happen in the area where this eye is situated (in the gap between your eyebrows.) 

However, it can also happen in your chakras or at the crown of your head.

This pressure or tingling sensation can happen for one of two reasons: 

  • Your chakras are beginning to open 
  • You are picking up signals of energy 

At the start of this development, it may feel very strong. Again, do not panic. Make sure you look after your health both physically and spiritually. 

4. You Feel A Connection With A Spirit 

You may start to feel connected to the world of spirits when you experience a psychic awakening. To put it another way, you may begin to feel like there is a spirit in your presence.

This can be anyone from your loved ones, angels, or a spirit guide. 

Sometimes, you may even begin to feel the spirits of the loved ones of other people around you. For many people, this is a natural feeling called mediumship, and it is connected to psychic awakenings. 

5. You Want To Move Away From Negativity 

A psychic awakening is often tied in with feelings of increased sensitivity, especially towards the emotions of other people. If this sounds like you, you may be an empath. 

Because of this newfound sensitivity to emotions, you may suddenly find yourself feeling very tired or drained of energy around those who are dramatic or negative. 

To embrace this aspect of your psychic awakening, it is best not to be around these people who bring you down. 

6. A Desire To Be More Spiritual 

A desire to learn about spirituality and be more spiritual is often a sign of psychic awakening.

This is because we will shed our skin while opening up to these awakenings, and as a result, we desire to read and learn more about spirituality, the sixth sense, chakras, etc.

7. You Experience Vivid Dreams 

Beginning to experience vivid dreams is a common sign of awakened psychic abilities. This can happen for two reasons. 

The first is that you do not resist things when you are sleeping. So, your mind does not interfere with your intuitive experiences. 

The second is that you are able to access more and more levels of consciousness as you open up. One of these levels of consciousness is the dream state.

If you do start to experience vivid dreams, it is helpful to place a dream journal by your bed so you can record your dreams as soon as you wake up so you do not forget them. 

8. You Begin Experiencing Headaches 

Sadly, these terrible headaches are very common when you begin to experience a psychic awakening. These headaches are caused by the increase in energy and are the most inconvenient symptom of psychic awakenings, 

However, there are things you can try and do to alleviate your pain. First, you can try and place your feet into some warm water. This helps to move the energy from your head and down to your feet, thus relieving the pressure in your head. 

It may also be helpful to add essential oils to the water. 

However, it is always best to seek out the advice of a doctor or healthcare professional if you are experiencing frequent, bad headaches. 

9. The Loss Of Friends 

You will grow a whole lot when you experience and embrace a psychic awakening. As a result, you may realize that you have outgrown a lot of your friends. While this may be upsetting, it is a normal part of life. 

It is important not to feel stressed and believe you will no longer have any friends. Trust that the universe will guide new people to you, and it most definitely will! 

10. You Become More Sensitive Physically 

During a psychic awakening, your emotional and spiritual sensitivity will increase to allow you to be more attuned to the emotions of others and the presence of spirits, respectively. However, your physical sensitivities will increase, too. 

You may feel as though loud noises and smells annoy you, or that you appreciate them a lot more than you usually do. 

This happens because your clairaudience, claircognizance, clairvoyance, and clairsentience are beginning to open up and grow stronger. 

How To Embrace A Psychic Awakening 

If you are still feeling concerned or afraid of your psychic awakening, that is okay. It is totally normal to get freaked out, but here are some reminders to make you feel better about your wonderful abilities! 

  • Intuition is normal and natural. 
  • All that has changed is a small shift in you that means you can recognize you are a spiritual being. 
  • It is normal to feel strange and be concerned about the unfamiliar, many people feel the same when they start to open up.

Final Thoughts 

Experiencing a psychic awakening can feel unfamiliar and scary. However, there are ways to embrace it that will make you feel more comfortable and excited about your abilities.

We hope that the list above will help you to recognize the signs of psychic awakening and help you to embrace them.
