Signs and Symptoms Of Experiencing Higher Energies

Signs and Symptoms Of Experiencing the Higher Energies



As the healing energies are hitting your various chakra centers, you are likely to experience a lot of old repressed memories and a variety of sensations and feelings (all part of your “Truth”). All these experiences are signposts along the way to indicate your progress and the stages of your unfoldment – do not get attached to any one feeling or sensation as all this will shift and change from moment to moment (all part of the phenomenal reality). Remember – you are not your process nor anything you experience in it – you are so much more.

There are many ways we process or “release” pent up or stuck energies. Within the different chakras, the signs and symptoms of these flows vary, depending on the chakras being stimulated.


When this chakra is opening up and being stimulated, you may feel like your head is being operated on (which it may be) – like someone is sticking needles or rods in your skull. You might have migraines or headaches – which are signs of energy blocks being confronted and worked on. When energies are released, you may have tingling sensations throughout your body (especially around your head) or there may be shooting sensations of heat and electricity running through your spinal cord and out your body… all the way down to your fingers and toes. You may have bursts and explosions of inner light. Intuitions come easily without having to think about it – you just know “that’s that”. Trust and follow this knowing – it comes from a high place.


When this chakra – also known as the “3rd Eye” – opens up and is being stimulated, you may have a tingling electrical sensation on your brow. You may see colors, shadows, images, sparkling lights, auras, or spirits (and ghosts). Past life scenarios may play out within your inner vision, especially in your dreams – which may become very vivid and seem very real.


When this chakra is opening up and releasing, 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 to you, and you can feel the vibrations of people just by their words.


When this chakra is opening up and receiving more energy, you may feel it flutter or ache – this indicates that your heart is going through its “growing pains” and expanding your capacity for loving. And when old sadness is being released, you may cry or weep profusely at the slightest “drop of a hat”. The heart is a very sensitive center – it feels everything very deeply. You may have periods where you love everyone and everything (how very beautiful and lovely).


When this chakra is opening up, old “fears” may be released as body shakes or as a loosening of the bowels (diarrhea). When “anger” is being released you may feel like raging (yelling and screaming) and all of a sudden feel nauseous and throw up. You may start to feel yourself projecting a more powerful presence that you did not have before, as your words are imbued with intensity.


When this chakra is opening up and being stimulated, you may feel all sorts of sexual feelings (even without trying). Throughout your lives, you have had many intimate relationships and many soul mates – if there is any suppressed and unfulfilled karmas (and desires) with any of these beings (especially of a sexual nature) this energy will bring it up. Though you may feel very uncomfortable with and have serious judgments about this, it’s how your soul desires and has chosen to work out these issues. Fortunately, processing at this chakra is usually done during the dream time with your astral body (so you can dispense with the physical formalities and societal constraints). When the energies of these connections are complete, the relationships will shift and let go.


When this chakra is opening up and being stimulated, you may feel warmth in different parts of your body, especially at the base of your spine you may feel intense heat. 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 the spiraling vortex energies. Your physical connection to nature, the planet, growing and nurturing things (and people) becomes very important.

If you find yourself trying to control your processing or resist any of these feelings – that just blocks the flow and makes it ever so much harder for you. You cannot hold back the flood gates forever – so let it all drain out. Again, don’t judge and don’t resist – just flow with what is happening in the moment – it’s all part of the purification process and will all shift and change in its own time. Just give yourself space and time to “be”… either alone or with those who are understanding and can hold a sacred space around you (just don’t project or blame your feelings on others).

More Signs and Symptoms

Until you adjust and integrate the new higher vibrational energies, you may feel as if in a pressure cooker – nervous, weighted down, shaken up and stressed out. The purpose of these higher energies is to accelerate your healing by bringing up old karmic patterns, negative behaviors, and faulty belief systems (etc.) up to the surface to be looked at and released. It is an intense process, but it works.

You may experience feelings of spatial temporal bodily disorientation – not knowing “where” or “when” you are (in space and time). As these higher dimensional energies are coming upon you, your material 3-D awareness is being shifted into and out of these other dimensions. This is a temporary phenomenon that lasts until you have adjusted, integrated and grounded these new higher vibrational energies.

Our aches and pains help us be aware of our energy flows – or where they are not flowing actually (this is one way our body gives us feedback on what is going on “in there”). As the higher 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 are indications that the physical body is attempting to release the negativity and toxins that have been held inside for so long. These symptoms are perfectly normal – continue to do the work and relax – when the block has been completely released, the ache or pain will go with it.

The “dream time” is when many of your issues (accumulated over many lifetimes) are being processing through the subconscious mind. Your dreams may range from being extremely vivid, violent, sexual, perverse, bizarre, otherworldly, alien, or just about anything (if it can be imagined – it can be dreamed). These dream images may not be exactly what occurred for you in these past lives, but they are the best approximation of how your mind can interpret them (your mind can only use what metaphors of symbols and images that have been programmed into its computer banks). 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. This is why you do a lot of your dreaming at night – your conscious ego-mind – that part of you that wants to analyze and rationalize such images to death – is put on hold (put to sleep) at night, which allows you to process these things on a much deeper level (otherwise the ego-mind would pull you out of your processing). And when your subconscious mind has reached a saturation point and can take no more (or when your ego-mind starts to take hold of you again), it may shift you into a state of consciousness and wake you up at any odd hour of the night.

The opposite happens too – feeling like you want to rest or sleep during the day time is one of the ways our conscious ego-mind copes with being energetically or emotionally overwhelmed with certain “sensitive issues”. If the higher vibrational energies are hitting you during the day, they will stir up some of these deep unresolved issues – the processing of which may make you feel fatigued and lethargic (especially if your energies are low to begin with). We see this same thing occurring during the healing sessions, except that you may find yourself being put to sleep (while your ego “turns off”) and you start to process on the deeper levels.

During this healing process, you may develop such an exaggerated sensitivity to your surroundings that you may become intolerant to and easily overwhelmed by external stimulations of any kind – no matter how slight… be they odd random noises, music, traffic sounds, the TV, people talking, bright or multi colored lights, a smell, some strong foods, jarring movements like when you are in a car, a touch, or even the texture of your bed sheets… any of your senses can be set off by the slightest of stimulations. Understand that you are already going through an awful lot of internal energetic processing of some very old stuff – you are already very full and very occupied with doing that – adding any more outer stimulation will only add to the fire of that. When you are feeling “fed up”, try to get away from it all – stay way from the city, hang out in your room, go take a walk in the park or in nature, go on a retreat in the country, anywhere you can cut down on the outer stimulations and give you the space to process your inner stuff.

As the higher energies are hitting your cellular biological emotional systems, those issues that are connected to your diet are coming up, including cellular memories of past life food issues (experienced during feasts and famines) as well as emotionally charged “comfort food” issues. You may go through periods of dietary mood swings where you have unusual food cravings – or have a complete loss of appetite. Your body is trying to process and adjust (or balance) on these primal levels – don’t fight it, don’t judge it, just flow with it. Processing the higher energies does require a lot of food – accept and honor that. This is hard work on your body – be gentle with it (and yourself).

And if you are experiencing weight gains, realize that you are still energetically, vibrationally or mentally holding on to something – this being reflected back to you on the physical level in this way. Keep doing the healing work – which will assist in your releasing process. Continue to exercise, eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water.

You may find yourself in situations that you feared the most – your “nightmares” or “worst case scenarios”. This is where your spouse runs off with the kids (or dog), your pet fluffy or fido escapes from your house or yard, you lose a well paying job, your bank account is getting near zero, there is a death in the family, you or someone you love gets a terminal disease, your car breaks down, you are incapacitated in an accident, you are mugged (or raped). I am sorry – none of this is pretty, but they are all challenges your soul (in accordance with the Great Spirit) has set up for you – to find your peaceful center throughout these situations and help you confront and overcome your limitations and karmic issues. In retrospect – you will find the silver lining to 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.

Periodically, you may have very strong feelings about not belonging: feeling alienated and isolated and estranged and misunderstood from all those around you, not fitting in to your work place or home or community or climate or culture, feeling as if you are finished with life and have no other purpose or meaning to being here anymore. You may likely feel like ending it all – thinking about suicide… which is understandable. These feelings come up when you are trying to break through one level of your “stuff” (your energetic attachments to it) or are sitting in the disillusionment about your “stuff” that has just left you. Look out for the possibility that you may be secretly harboring a resistance to going to the next level (and there are many more levels – you just haven’t gotten to them yet). Be patient and hang in there – there is more to life. You are going through a temporary phase that will shift once you go deeper in the work. “If” you were complete here, Spirit would take you out of this “Game of Life” in one quick jiffy (without any help from you I might add). You are here for a profound reason – to complete your karma and manifest your spirit self here through this body. This takes patience and lots of healing work. It is no accident you are here – look for the meanings – it may take a while, but they are in there.

When you are feeling spaced out, your speech comes out in a muddled or confused manner, and you are having a hard time remembering things. You may think that 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 used to it. Memory and speech is a function of the left hemisphere of the brain – which is associated with the more worldly, horizontal, linear and rational “thinking”. The higher vibrational energies coming into you are shifting your attentions off the left (which currently may be your dominant side) and activating the right hemisphere of the brain – which is associated with the spiritual/transcendent, vertical, non-linear, irrational “feelings”. Spirit wants to create a balance between these 2 hemispheres, but to do so may involve a temporary diversion of your energies and attentions from off your “dominant” side… and shift it on to your “dormant” side. When the 2 sides are balanced out, then your memory and speech will return to normal.

You may start to develop a distaste or dislike for the more mundane things in life… such as trivial or argumentative conversations, the external trappings of society, sports and other amusements and activities, certain kinds of music and TV shows, smoking, drinking alcohol, synthetic medicines or recreational drugs, your current job, old hobbies, familiar haunts and comfortable habits, political wars and social parties, cultural stereotypical attitudes or behaviors, meaningless sexual relationships, even certain people whom you discover you now have little in common with – be they family, friends, partners or simply acquaintances. All this is indicating that your energies and vibrations are no longer in alignment to these other things and people. You are being pushed to let go and move on. You are changing from the inside out… and as you are becoming a different person, so too will you want to have and do different things in your life.

So many extraordinary things are occurring within your energy field and consciousness – which the ego-mind (from its limited grasp on the greater reality and higher truths) can not understand. Through application of these higher energies and vibrations, your ego-mind is losing the attachments (that “death grip”) it had on its limited (yet comfortable) pseudo-identities, behavior patterns and coping mechanisms… and is communicating that loss to you as fear, anxiety and panic attacks – which is the egos way of trying to constrict the smooth flow of the higher energies (thus shutting you down and off). This will make you feel powerless and vulnerable – so 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 way and create the 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 come in. Yet… for the old you, until this “new self” comes in and is fully 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.

Because animals and little children have so few filters and blocks, you may find that they are often much more sensitive and responsive to the higher energies and vibrations that are working with you… so much so they may become either frightened of it (because they don’t understand it) or very attracted to it (because it reminds them of home). Nice feedback for you.

Any sort of electronic equipment (light bulbs and computers included) may be jumbled up or shorted out… if they are within your energy field when a particular high vibrational electo-magnetic energy is channeling into you. (Interesting phenomenon when it happens, unless your computer crashes while you are using it). This may be rectified if your energies can become more grounded – helps if you spend more time with your hands and feet in the earth (and less time around impersonal electronics).

You may find your life is starting to take unexpected twists and turns – events may occur that are so far out from left field… meeting people who you would normally have never run into or had nothing in common with before – you are now in sync with. Plans that you made in the past are now feeling uncomfortable – and you suddenly start making new surprising and different choices. You are finally breaking out of your old energetic and vibrational ruts and are starting to function from a new paradigm 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 or roaring or humming or clicking sounds, bells ringing, unusual tingling, energy sensations, goose bumps, hair standing on end, floral aromas, feelings of expansion or contraction or heaviness or lightness, numbness or paralysis in any part of your body, electric-like pulses or surges of energy, spinning or vibrations or movement of any kind…

  5. Synchronicity brought me to this due to something I recently went through. I’ve been having these experiences much more intensely for the past 5 years. Thank you and Namaste.

  6. Hi. I recently began dating a very nice guy. We have both experienced a strange fatigue after being together. when we are together we’re fine.
    it keeps happening and we joke about how the other is draining us. it’s a very positive interaction so I am guessing we’re stirring something up on a subconscious level. Have you heard of this side effect/symptom before with new lovers meeting?

  7. ps. the fatigue is excessive. I need about 4 hrs sleep extra during the day or at night. and now we both just got flu…

  8. Hello,

    I’ve been experiencing vibrational energy coming in from the top of my head. sometimes it feels so electric and can be uncomfortable. I recogize this as information that I am receiving. I get concerned sometimes though when I get a throbbing in my head. I know that i should move the energy down into my heart but i’m not sure how to do this. any suggestions?
    thanks Em

  9. I too have been experiencing these symptoms for last 8 months, it can be hard somethings dealing with the higher energy. but positives are knowing it for the best. I am also a level 2 channel for reiki, which helps. I get a lot of tingling around my crown, forehead and my second chakra.I try to ground myself daily. I attend spiritual churhes weekly, and last week i was told by a medium i had a gold orbit around my head.
    does anyone know this means??


    However, it is incouraging to know Im not alone
