Agoraphobia or Anxiety experiences of any type such as Panic Attacks could suggest that you are experiencing Empathy which is often the forerunner to a Spiritual Awakening.
This may be the case even if you have never had any interest in Spirituality.
First let’s have a look at what is referred to as Anxiety and Panic Attacks.
Oxford English Dictionary Definition
1A feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome.
1.1Psychiatry A nervous disorder marked by excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behaviour or panic attacks.
Psychological Symptoms of General Anxiety Disorder
- a sense of dread
- feeling constantly "on edge"
- difficulty concentrating
- Physical Symptoms of General Anxiety Disorder
- a noticeably strong, fast or irregular heartbeat (palpitations)
- muscle aches and tension
- trembling or shaking
- dry mouth
- excessive sweating
- shortness of breath
- stomach ache
- feeling sick
- pins and needles
- difficulty falling or staying asleep
Most of us have felt Anxious at some point in our lives, usually as a result of some situation we are experiencing.
Agoraphobia and Panic Attacks however can occur for no apparent reason. As a result it undermines your confidence in almost every area of your life until you become more and more restricted in what you can and cannot do without having a Panic Attack.
A panic attack is when your body experiences a rush of intense mental and physical symptoms. It can come on very quickly and for no apparent reason. A panic attack can be very frightening and distressing.
- a racing heartbeat
- feeling faint
- chest pain
- shortness of breath
- hot flushes
- shaky limbs
- a choking sensation
- numbness or pins and needles
- dry mouth
- a need to go to the toilet
- ringing in your ears
- a feeling of dread or a fear of dying
- a churning stomach
- a tingling sensation in your fingers
- feeling like you're not connected to your body
If you have experienced Panic Attacks then you will be fully aware that the symptoms can be so overwhelming that you actually believe you are about to die.
With a Spiritual Awakening you can experience any or all of the above too. I personally experienced Panic Attacks which developed into Agoraphobia leaving me housebound for 5 years, with daily panic attacks which lasted for a period of 10 years, until I finally got off the medication took control of my life and overcame the Agoraphobia and Panic Attacks myself.
It is this experience that I share in my support group, and which i bring into my Private Mentoring Sessions.
It is possible that as well as those symptoms listed above you may also experience some other symptoms that are not listed by the NHS but are very relevant to Spiritual Awakening.
- These may include:
- Sensitivity to bright light
- Sensitivity to Noise
- Sensitivity to negative people/ situations
- Become more emotional with highs and lows
- Disinterest in watching the News or reading the papers
- Sleep Disturbances
- Sudden dislike for certain foods
- Interest in Spiritual or Supernatural things
- Depersonalisation or Loss of Identity
- A search for meaning to your life
- Develop Empathy (feeling others pain and suffering)
- Synchronicity (notice repeating numbers such as 11.11 or 9.11 or 22.22)
- Old hurts coming up from the past
- Vivid dreams
- A feeling like something is going to happen but you don’t know what
This is not intended to be a full list of every possible symptom but it does outline many of the more common ones.
If you are suffering from Agoraphobia, or if you are experiencing panic attacks, and any of the above symptoms it is highly likely that you are experiencing a Spiritual Awakening.
What is the Cause?
Anxiety and Panic Attacks that come along with a Spiritual Awakening are not due to a nervous “breakdown” are not because you are Crazy, and do not mean you have a Mental Health problem.
The simple cause is an expansion of your awareness, an increase in your sensitivity.
We have all experienced discomfort through our 5 senses, overpowering strong smell, loud noise, bright lights, disgusting taste and rough touch and we know how to prevent these overloads.
PANIC ATTACKS AND AGORAPHOBIA
With Panic Attacks and Agoraphobia your system has developed a 6th sense, Empathy.
Empathy is the ability to sense other people’s pain and suffering, and other people’s feelings.
You have developed sensitivity to atmospheres in places and between people. This is why most people who have Anxiety and Panic Attacks withdraw from going to places especially crowded places, and if they do venture into them they are likely (not always) to get overwhelmed and feel like they have to leave, usually in a hurry.
This is also why Anxious people get overloaded quickly if there is any hint of tension between them and others or even just between others.
Your system has expanded beyond the normal range of the 5 senses and without you realising it you have become aware of the energy that everyone of us emits, good or bad.
So what does this mean?
It means life is calling for you to reassess your life in order to find meaning and purpose.
- What needs to change in my life?
- What can I do differently?
- What does my heart desire?
- What am I drawn to do?
- How can I best help others?
There are many practical things you can do to help ease the symptoms and self-help manuals can be found in our on line community, Join us here.
However when we have a Spiritual Awakening things cannot stay the same, they have to change and the more we resist that change the more likely we are to suffer more of the same or even a worsening of our conditions.
This is not a punishment or an attempt at teaching you a lesson.
It is just the natural flow of life pointing you in the direction of finding yourself, finding your purpose.
It is pointing you in a direction that will improve your life and the world in general.
Resistance is Futile
