Spirituality can be complicated to the minds of those who don’t understand exactly what it entails. Of course, spirituality can be your religion, your traditional practice, or what you were born into, be it family practice or culture, your mind and personal perception of the world and all within, etc.
Spirituality is your belief, or disbelief in a God (or gods,) or Higher Power and anything relating to things beyond the physical and more.
We are now living in a time where there is a great shift happening and the Earth is moving into another dimension. Because of this shift, many people, young and old, are going to find themselves on a spiritual journey wanting to understand and know more about life, their purpose, and anything beyond themselves. Many people today are beginning to ask more questions, music and movies are delving more into spiritual themes. We are living in a time where everything is being questioned and fortunately answers are being provided.
There are those among us who are seekers, and also those among us who are here to answer questions. This post today is about those of you who have embraced your spirituality through some form. My goal in this post is to show those of you who are waking up to yourself, the talent that is coded and locked within you, how to recognize it, how to know when it is happening, and how to grow further. However this must be at a pace made for you by your higher self, we cannot rush life, and although many people want to be apart of the spiritual world in terms of practice, practice (being a practitioner) is not for everyone regardless of what is bestowed upon them.
Now, as usual, I will begin with sharing an experience of a woman I know, and keep in mind, this part of the post is most important, and perhaps one of the most important revelations I have ever written here before.
Let us call this woman Lorette. One day, Lorette had come to talk to me about something she was experiencing at the time, and she began with a story from her childhood. She told me that all her life she suffered with ear problems. It began when she was possibly two or three years old but she remembered it clearly. She had painful ear infections where yellow pus filled fluid would flow out of her ears. Jamaican people would say that if you hold a child by one arm, that child will get ear infections, and so her parents were cautioned not to allow her siblings to hold her that way. After a while, the ear infections stopped, but for some reason, she could clearly remember those days, regardless of how young she was.
When she entered her teenage years, she realized that at times her ear would feel wet with an odd sensation that nothing could cure. She eventually went to the doctor for what she called a “dreadful hearing test”, but all was well there too.
By the time Lorette had come to me, there were times she said she would hear ringing in her ears. There is of course a medical diagnosis for this called Tinnitus, but of course, this was not the reason behind the ringing. There were times she told me that she was worried because the sound would become so intense that it sounded like stereo frequency ringing loud and far away. The sensation, fluids and ringing all occurred in only her right ear, and the left ear was perfectly normal.
She had stopped going to the doctor about it because after a while, she got the feeling that they thought that she was not right in the head as all tests had proved that nothing was wrong with her ears. This was how she had found me.
I listened to her story while smiling inwardly because I knew exactly what was happening to this woman but I worried in my mind, how do I tell her? A voice then told me that I had to use wisdom in allowing Lorette to understand what was happening to her, and so I summoned some of what Solomon was given and told her that what she was experiencing was something that many people have experienced, including myself (I needed to let her know that she was not alone in this. This is always important).
“Now listen,” I told her. “Before I explain to you what is happening, I want you to wait two weeks, and within this time you will hear either 3 things. Don’t be afraid when it happens. The first thing that may happen is that you will hear a group of people speaking at once. You may not be able to make out what they’re saying, and this may occur in your sleeping state, your waking state, or just before you fall asleep. The second thing that may happen is that you will hear someone call your name or shout something from very far away, and when you look, you will not see anyone.” – Here I cautioned her that if she should hear this, she should not respond – “And the third thing that may happen, while you are asleep, or possibly awake, but most likely asleep, you will hear someone speaking through something that sounds like a walkie talkie. This will happen within the next two weeks and the reason why it will happen is because now that I, Obara Meji, have told you what to expect, what is happening with your ears will now show its agenda.”
She wanted to ask more questions but I cautioned her to have faith and return to me with a report.
Now let me tell you all what happened to Lorette.
When a person is on a spiritual path, a path of finding out who they are, their spiritual gift, and possibly the purpose of why they are on Earth, the non-physical world needs to interact with the person. And so, during this time (of Lorette’s ear problems), Lorette’s non-physical guides were opening her spiritual ears. Yes, readers, whatever the human has on their physical body, there is a spiritual aspect to it.
This is one of the first things that will happen to a person who is growing spiritually. Perhaps not to everyone because not everyone can deal with hearing from the spirit realms, only those who have particularly come for this purpose.
Waking up to your spirituality can happen many different ways and this depends on if you have work to do through spirituality. In this case, Lorette did, and this work was identified or marked upon her since she was a small child, hence why it began at such a young age.
What I will explain below are for those who have embraced their spirituality in some way, most especially those who become initiated into a tradition or spiritual house. Many will begin to receive gifts but most will not know what is happening and it can be a very jarring experience.
Please understand that we must continue to grow spiritually. No child is born and immediately walks and talks. All things, including spiritual growth, has stages and phases.
How to Know When You Are Spiritually Growing
1. The Ears.
(Some) Will begin to experience some problems with the ears, such as what was explained above, or would be hearing particular noises, ringing or sound frequencies that are abnormal or unusual to their everyday life. If you hear ringing in your ear that others do not hear, this ringing comes from the spiritual realms and is then heard by those who are spiritually growing. For these people, the ringing is like a fire drill from the realms. It is meant to test your spiritual hearing ability, as soon, this ringing will turn into messages in form of presence of thoughts or knowings.
Some people will also experience physical problems with the ear such as pain, excessive or intermittent ear infection, ear blockage, or feeling as though something is always in the ear or buzzing around it.
This one is very important because many people are having this problem, but most do not know what it is. Of course, a doctor can not tell you this. But if this happens to you, and the doctor does not know what it is, know for sure that you will be hearing from the world of spirit very soon. Congratulations.
2. The Eyes.
For those who are on their way to becoming a Seer, know that the spiritual eyes must also be open. This is different from your third eye which will open first. The physical eyes, however, for some people, will become sensitive to light. If your eyes were not sensitive to light before and all of a sudden becomes sensitive to light, know that there is a shift happening and your spiritual eyes, both your third eye and your physical one, have now opened for your to receive and see messages, not only in your dreams. If you experience this, start to wear shades as much as you can.
When the eyes have opened, you will begin to see flashes of scenes of videos play before you. These scenes or videos are spiritual messages. This often takes some time to achieve, but it is not uncommon to happen earlier than usual in one’s spiritual growth.
3. The Head.
When the third eye opens, the person will experience terrible headaches, such as migraines or most especially sinus headaches. The pain will feel like a load on the top of the head and in the middle of the forehead. It will make the person feel as if they are carrying a load on top of their head (which you are, because the moment you begin to spiritually see a persons problem, you begin to share in that load. The job of a spiritualist is not an easy one). Or the middle of the forehead is splitting in two. This will only happen for a time however, because the third eye opens quite quickly, although the experience is horrendous.
4. The Hand.
For the healers, there are times when the palm of the hand will become extremely warm, if not hot. While other times it will become very cold. The person will notice the change of the temperature in their hand. They can be in a very cold place but the palm of the hand remains very warm. Those with the warm hands are the highest forms of healers, but also one that can unfortunately absorb illnesses and if not careful, can carry that illness or be harmed by it if they are not under the tutelage of a mentor or teacher. Those with the warm hands are indicative of a sensor or those with extreme compassion. If you are one of such people, I caution you to never attend a funeral or hospital, because sensors such as these can absorb these energies and fall ill or die.
What I am explaining is for those who are growing spiritually but are being gifted. Being spiritually gifted is different from becoming spiritually awake. Please be smart and understand that not because you are experiencing any of this makes you a person ready to be a spiritual practitioner of any kind. To be so, there are many more stages you must pass through, and you must have a teacher, mentor or guru or belong to a particular spiritual house where you can be groomed.
5. Extraordinary Dreams
The types of dreams that you used to have will change. These dreams will now seem as if you are watching a video of yourself. You will become a 3rd party or conscious thought, aware and curious of what is happening and of yourself but necessarily participating. Dreams will also become unusual and feel as if you are in another world. Colors might become more vivid or scenes may appear as an alternate reality of your current reality. In your dreams, you may find yourself do extraordinary things (i.e. flying, going through solid walls or doors, jumping off a cliff and swimming in the ocean etc.) All things must happen first in the world of spirit. These dreams reveal to you your spiritual journey through metaphor. You may also dream of yourself in a school setting, attending a University, or a school’s graduation. This is an indication of your spiritual growth.
There are also those who will wake up knowing that they had a dream but can not remember what it was. Don’t worry about this. When ever you can not remember a dream, it means that whatever you have seen or learned in the spiritual world is not meant to be accessed as yet, but as you grow spiritually, this information or lesson that you have learned in the “forgotten dream” will come out of you through speech, action, or deja vu moment when you are ready for this information.
6. The Back
During spiritual growth you may experience bad aches beginning from the top of the shoulders to the base of the spine. Some people may have it just on the shoulders, the center of the back, the base of the spine, or all over the back as if carrying a load. With these aches comes extreme tiredness and heavy breathing. This may last for a long time or become intermittent, but as a person who has had this very same thing happen to her, this feeling is not a good one. However, there are ways to clear it. The Christian Bible teaches this when Jesus carried his own cross. I refer to this because people who are on toward their spiritual growth, possibly becoming someone in the Spiritual Hierarchies must prepare himself to carry the burden of others.
7. The Stomach.
This is very important. Many people have problems with their stomach and this is not only with those who are spiritually growing. I believe it is owing to almost everyone on the planet. The stomach is possibly the most central part of the body and like a magnet, it pulls other peoples problems to the body. It matters not whether you believe in spirituality. This is where the saying “I have a gut feeling” comes from, because most people feel things before it happens in the gut. I will write about this particular area one day. But for those who are spiritually growing, this area is especially sensitive especially for those who come from the World of Water. So pay attention to queasy stomachs, pay attention to stomachs that growl loudly whether or not you are actually hungry. Some reading this may dismiss this as hunger noise, but don’t. I know what I am saying.
For the women, pay attention to the lower part of the abdomen where the reproductive area is, pay attention to any sensation of any painful moving that eventually goes away on its own. Be aware that this is the area that is quick to pull sickness from one person to the spiritual grower. How you will know that this is so, is that this pain will now vibrate around to the back and leave the person feeling very tired. The tiredness is the burden or load that you have absorbed from another person.
If the stomach disturbs you, or if you feel any of the symptoms I am speaking about, know that the spiritual world from where you are from, is water.
One thing that is important for you to know is that when you are growing spiritually, or if you feel that you are on this path, it will be good for you to find a spiritual mentor or teacher to guide you. Any experience that you have within your growth that you are not taught or have no understanding of will linger on for a while until you are able to know what is happening to you. In other words, if it is the ears that your non-physicals have began with, but you have no idea that it is your spiritual ears that are opening, then it will take years for you to move on to your next phase of growth.
If you have a mentor or teacher who is filled with wisdom and is able to explain and assist your journey, then you will move on to your next phase much quicker, ascending to who you are supposed to be at a much faster pace.
Phases and stages are important to finding who you are and all that you have locked inside. But there will come a time, at a specific age, that when you arrive there, you will now have the confidence and wisdom to look at a closed door and command it to open, and it will. Endurance is needed during your spiritual growth.
God speed on your journey!
Anything a person does to another, it is himself he has done it for.
