Symptoms of Energy Shifts


When the crown chakra opens or expands it can be an intense and painful experience. It might feel like a spike or rod is being inserted. Headaches are common and they can range from migraines, to cluster headaches. Women seem to experience them more than men. They can be caused by too much energy flowing through the crown chakra, and by hormonal changes which occurs when the chakras are stimulated. Sometimes the pain can be eased by asking Spirit and your Higher Self to make an adjustment in the energy flow. When you ask for aid to ease the pain and it is part of the process that is opening and expanding your pineal or pituitary gland, the pain will only lessen. As your vibrational rate increases, the pineal and the pituitary glands expand to accommodate the higher energy frequencies. Other glands change also, but these two are the major ones that contribute to headaches. This can last a few months, or a few years depending on what level of spiritual development that you are at and your rate of growth.


This is quite common and part of the process. Just ride it out and don’t take antibiotics which will only prolong the process. These symptoms are caused by the physical body reaction to the toxins that are released when the chakras begin to expand. What ever was constricting or congesting the chakras is flushed through the blood. Also new beliefs and paradigms are enacted the imprinted consciousness in the blood becomes toxic to the physical system because it does not support the new thoughts and contributes to confusion. It is helpful to supplement the body with blood fortifying enzymes, herbs and essential oils to ease the symptoms. Hot lemon drinks will also help cleanse the body. Don't work too much during this time, because you are going through a major shift in vibration. Try and take it easy, and it will pass.


This is a common reaction when the solar plexus chakra opens and releases the stored fear, anger and resentment held in the area. Karmic and family issues will produce gas and farting. The Bach Flower Rescue Remedy can ease these symptoms. Don't be afraid to take it every 30 minutes if necessary.


Increasing your vibration forces the energy through the body. When there are blockages impeding the energy flow this raised and forced energy slams into them causing these symptoms and ails. Often this is alleviated by asking for assistance from the Higher Self to adjust the flow to ease the pain. The body can quickly adjust to the higher vibration in a few moments, hours, or days.


A very common symptom caused by an increased rate of vibration. This higher frequency forces any illnesses, viruses, or infections hiding in the body to surface. To discover the root-cause contributing to this state examine your beliefs and decisions that are creating your reality. It is also important to monitor your internal dialogue to learn what you are creating for yourself. Observing and realizing the state you are experiencing is not cause by the present allows it to quickly pass. The herb "St. Johns Wart" eases depression and is anti-viral too.


When blockages from this lifetime, and other lifetimes began to release the emotional body will react in this manner. The Photon Belt energy stimulates and contributes to the spontaneous release of these burdens. Trying to control or resists these urges further represses and blocks the energy making things more difficult. Crying, moaning, sobbing or toning becomes a cleansing release. Use a Bach flower remedy, or an essential oil to help with the emotional body.


This is a symptom experienced when the heart chakra begins to open or enlarge to receive more energy. Pain sensations in the heart and not being able to breath can be very frightening because you may think you are having a heart attack. The above symptoms are caused by the expansion of energy running through your solar plexus and heart chakra (heart and stomach area). The best solution is to relax which will adjust the energy flow. Anxiety and fear only constricts the energy thus, causing a more severe reaction. This is a normal experience when undergoing a frequency increase.


These are commonly experienced by both men and women. This is due to energy flowing too quickly through the body, hormonal changes, which men have too, and the body learning to adjust to the higher vibratory rate. Some men might experience fat being stored in this area which might feel like they are growing breasts. If you are a man don’t be concerned about this, because this puffiness in the chest area will only last for a short while.


Waking in the morning and struggle to get out of bed after a full night of sleep, or falling asleep in the middle of the afternoon is common. This is caused when the energy is shifting throughout the whole spiritual body. This will pass in time, each person has a different time frame for some it can be weeks, for others months, for others years. If you can create a pyramid structure to sit under this will give you wonderful boosts of energy when you are lacking it. Drink lots of pure water to hydrate the cells, add crystals to energize the water. Eat light meals with organic veggies. Doing light physical exercise will stimulate the energy flow through the body. Bach remedies, flower essences and essential oils will also help the transition.


You go early to bed, exhausted, but in a couple of hours you are wide. This is caused by the Photon Belt energy accumulating around you, because the body’s inability to store the energy because it is blocked and congested. It is important not to get up and be active because the energy is for healing all the subtle bodies spiritual, mental, emotional and physical, the best way to assimilate the energy is to quietly sit and read, watch TV, or listen to meditation tapes to help you go back to sleep. This might seem to occur nightly for some time.


This is a very common complaint. The body feels like it is being invaded so it adds a layer of protection. If you are a Lightworker than additional water is needed to create energy. If you don’t have enough water the body will store water, which ultimately leads to stagnation. Another major factor is that with the activation of new DNA fat is needed to hold the vibration. Body fat holds a higher vibration which is necessary to generate healing and channeling energy. Many of you also have agreed to anchor grids of light in the areas surrounding where you live. Anchoring these grids require body fat to help hold the energy. Body fat serves a very loving purpose as it allows embodiments to assist mother earth in holding her vibration. In becoming crystalline, the body fat is evenly distributed around every cell within the embodiment. This allows the entire body to act as a tuning fork to hold a new vibration.


This can be a frightening experience because you cannot remember what you had for dinner, and dinner was only an hour away. YOU ARE NOT LOSING YOUR MEMORY. You are changing over from left brain function to more of a right brain function. Areas of the brain are being activated to cope with the higher energy coming in. Sometimes it is hard to speak, words come out jumbled or garbled, this situation will pass, there is no time limit on this.


As you open up to the higher vibration, you will find yourself becoming extremely sensitive to people, noises, light, smells, tastes, all sorts of things. This can affect the central nervous system and can be quite a difficult thing to cope with. You do need to take B vitamins and a multi vitamin if this is happening to you. If you are allergic to these vitamins then look for a homeopathic remedy or a Bach flower remedy for extreme sensitivity.


If this is happening to you, then you are really reaching a very high vibratory rate and will probably be a profound healer or channel for spirit. It is due to extremely high energy coming into the physical form. It could be described as 50,000 volts of electricity coming in at once, not only can the body not cope, but it goes through the body and out again and as it does so it affects all electronic equipment.


You will find that dogs and cats and other animals will become aware of your energy and be frightened of it or want to be around it all the time. Many animals can't get enough of the energy. Others are somewhat frightened because they do not understand it.


As you vibrate higher, you will find that you no longer want the things that you used to. Coffee, tea and meat are just three of the dietary changes that people make as they begin to vibrate faster. Meat is especially dense and can really affect the body's energy, especially if it has hormones in it. You may develop cravings for certain foods, or go off your favorite foods. This is normal and a part of the change to the higher vibration. If you find this happening, then let it happen and explore the new possibilities.

Also, the changes to our physiological make-up are currently speeding up and there are many temporary physical symptoms that are occurring in our bodies as a consequence of this. Some of these are:

Flu-like symptoms. High temperatures, sweating, aching bones and joints etc, but which do not respond to antibiotics. Migraine headaches with severe pain that is not relieved with pain killers. Occasional diarrhea. Occasional runny nose and sneezing which lasts 24 hours and is not a cold or hayfever. Dizziness. Ringing in the ears. Heart palpitations. Feeling the whole body vibrate, especially at night when one is in a relaxed state. Intense muscular spasms and pain in one or more areas of the body. Tingling in arms, hands, legs or feet. Temporary loss of muscular power in the body caused by changes to the circulatory system. Occasional breathing difficulties, and/or noticing stronger or louder breathing when in a relaxed state. Immune system changes. Tenderness in the breasts and/or genitals. Lymphatic system changes. Changes to skin tone and colour. Feeling tired or exhausted from minor exertion. Wanting to sleep longer and more often than usual. Toe nails and hair growing quicker than usual. Bouts of depression for no real reason. Finding that one is delving into the past, looking at relationships and gaining clarity on personal issues. Feeling one is doing a huge purge. Tension, anxiety and high stress levels because one feels that something is going on but one doesn't know what it is. Some of these symptoms are being felt by a great many people. Many are rushing off in panic to their doctor, chiropractor, herbalist and so on and usually told that there is nothing really wrong with them. And this is the truth. For all these symptoms are just temporary and simply indicate that the above mentioned physiological changes are occurring. Some of the recommended relief remedies for the above are:

Go with the flow, don't fight it. If you feel tired and exhausted, rest and get plenty of sleep. Drink plenty of water for you are detoxifying and dehydrating quicker than usual. To relieve emotional tension and stress levels take Valerian. Fenugreek relieves stress on the lymphatic system and helps the detoxification. To relieve muscle spasm take Valerian and try mud baths or a long hot soak in a bath into which you add a cup of Epsom salts. Do this daily. Recognize that even if you are having heart palpitations or breathing difficulties that it is the heart chakra or the throat chakra that is unblocking and that the symptoms are temporary. You aren't dying, just changing! However, don't just take my word for it. Seek medical guidance if you are unsure. If you don't know where to get Valerian or Fenugreek try a health food store or better still, simply say the name in your head when you need relief. All healing energies are transmitted via the sound of the name and are just as effective said in the mind as aloud or as in physically taking them. Try it and see. Ask your angel guides or higher self to help relieve any pain. Most symptoms seem to last a couple of weeks, then clear up. Some symptoms may reoccur from time to time.

These changes are not necessarily being experienced by everyone concurrently, for instance, a very small percentage of adults have already embodied a further 2 strands of DNA (as at 2001) and are now beginning to move into fourth dimensional awareness. This physical change in our state of being is completely dependent upon our current level of consciousness, therefore, as we lift our perceptions to embrace ever increasing levels of truth and higher thought, so we embody further strands of DNA. This entire process is managed by our I AM presence or higher self, so we are in extremely capable and loving hands, and must therefore, learn to surrender to it.

    Blowing light bulbs..that's interesting. I used to knock lights out, increase ceiling fan speeds when I was feeling particularly emotional for any reason. (Upset, sad, extremely tense)...This doesn't happen nearly as often as it used to and I was told that this meant that I was not controlling my flow of energy as well as I should've been..aka, "carelessly flinging energy around". Thanks for the post, I found it interesting.

      dear sweet goodness this was extremely helpful information!

      i initially scanned the post and thought "oh, been there done that know what's in it" but the energetic explanations were different and more helpful than I thought . also, it's always good to hear from an outside source when something physiological is going on, that one, there's a reason, and two, you're okay just wait.

      peace peace peace and love love love to you! thank you for sharing your knowledge!

    Thank you John,

    I had read something on the internet a while back when I first began have sensations and experiences I had not had before. But this had a little more information. I gave up red meat and coffee....both were bogging down my system.

    Interesting post, thanks for posting it. With the exception of a few of these (like flue-like symptoms or blow light bulbs), I've experience quite a lot of these confusing symptoms in the last 6 months or so, since I've really started to open up and become more aware of this gift. Very interesting. :)

      My daughter even commented the other day about all the light bulbs that go out around me. (when I am the one that turns the light on) It is almost a joke anymore.

      I also can't wear watched. I stop them. It doesn't matter how new the battery is.

      Depression is a problem right now.

    thank you. as personal work deepens I am experiencing many of these symptoms but have not been feeling anxious or afraid in them as I might have in the past. It's easing to see all the qualities brought together. Trimming the fat.
    thank you

    Wow, yeh..I can relate to a lot of this.

    Around 5 years ago I started to have some weird changes. First I started to get weird hot flashes and sweating (so annoying) and horrible migraine attacks, then around a year later I started to blow out the power when I was emotional, and a year after that my body decided that meat was not for it. I mean it literally rejected my attempts at eating it (not pleasant). Doctors said I was "normal" on every test.

    Around the time I started to blow out the power, I started to have other fun experiences that made me question my sanity (and reality) for awhile. Now, I've accepted the fact that new-agey people might be on to something (in some cases).

    I get the *feeling* my body isn't done yet...and I have learned to trust my feelings.

    where did you get this information from? I'd like to know if there is any more information out there where this came from. (Any roadmaps on what's next for me?)

      Hi Annette,

      These energy shift symptoms can fall under many names such as Ascension, Kindalini Rising and maybe even spiritual awakening. I would start there.

      Yeah, red meat was the first to go for me and last night I had a problem with the chicken I ate, so all I have left is turkey and pork....and let me tell you I in no way EVER thought I would consider myself a vegetarian. I don't like beans in any!!

        I'm ok with being a vegetarian now, but wasn't what you would call a choice. :)

        I fought it. I still think about "testing" the water sometimes.
        I can still eat fish and seafood, though I've gotten more sensitive to that.

        It's like my body and "I" want really different things. My body wants me to eat vegetables all the time, but I'm more interested in vanilla wafers. Well, occasionally, that little "inner voice" inside gets fed up with me and say, "oh yeh?" and that's when I know I better start listening.

        I'm a brat. Whatever "process" I'm going pissed off at me. ;)

          LOLOL Yeah, vegetables make me gag something has to give if I am to eat.

          I ate sauteed mushrooms and onions the other day for lunch because nothing else sounded good. I can eat shrimp and haddock. I can't eat lobster any more. <s-i-g-h>
          it is getting very limited for me.

          I fight it too at gets boring eating salads all the time.

            Thank you for this. This makes sense like nothing else has. Except I don't know what I am suppose to be doing? I feel like I have something else or another answer but I'm not sure.

      I am so happy that I passed this on and that folks are finding it helpful. I do not usually post info unless it's credited and has links so that people can follow up if they care to. This was sent to me by a friend, unfortunately I've not been able to find the author. I will keep looking.

        OK question what are we supposed to do when all of this is happening and it's getting hard to function properly? I read 'new age' things like traits of Indigo..s lightworkers... kundalini and it would make so much sense to me and somewhat answer things. I ask then..why do I doubt and second guess and insist there is just something wrong with me? I feel we are all open to these things and 'whoever' decides to let us know when we are 'ready.' I think as a child I wasn't strong enough to handle any more than what I was given if this makes sense. I noticed once I got pregnant is when everything starting getting stronger and 'switching.'

        ok have things 'passed' for folks yet? I ask because I feel quite weird lately. I feel hermit like and very very sensitive to my surroundings. I keep thinking too much as if I am in over drive. I also felt very depressed lately and alone. Which I know isn't good and not the direction I should be taking. I'm very confused about the world and I don't know what to make of anything..and also don't know what ot belive or what not to believe. so many unanswered questions. I'm kinda scared too because I'm wondering if it isn't in my head. I find myself being slightly paranoid of everything I read and skeptical--although I emphasize-not cynical. I am open to possibilities but at the same time I question and over-analyze myself.

        I even went to the doctor because I don't feel well-physically. There is something wrong with my stomach and digestive area and I am also very tired and sore. very, very tired to where I have little energy and I have to force myself to get things done. She gave me a script for depression meds and I do not want to take anything like this because I am not really 'depressed' in the normal sense. Or maybe I am and should just take them. sigh. I'm also getting headaches more frequently which I notice this because I am not usually prone to headaches much. Anxiety level is up too as in sometimes my heart speeds up and I can feel it beating-literally like it is coming out of my chest. Not to get TMI but my cycles are really screwed up lately too. I feel nuts and I'm not sure where to turn. I try to explain things to my husband and he just doen't get me. When I don't feel in sync with my husband... well this is very bothersome because we've always been very close.

        I know nobody here is a doctor, but is anyone else experiencing this very hard? or perhaps a link--

          I went to energetic therapists, and when I couldn't afford it anymore I clear my chakra's everyday - which has gone leaps and bounds! I explain how in a posting somewhere around here.... but there's lots of resources out there to explain how... or send me a note.

          Good luck!

          Your symptoms sound very similar to my own. There is nothing wrong with you, and while at times you feel like you are going are actually opening up. Ask your guides to take it easy and to slow it down a bit. Trust your own process!! Breathe....get out of your head. Find something to drawing!! The ego will fight a lenthy battle....

          Check this site out....I found it a long time ago and it helped me a lot. You may have to look around a bit, but there is something in there about awakening, and dark night of the soul.

    Crazy what it said about memory loss. I can actually say that that statement has truth in it. I had a spell of time where my memory was increasingly short. It was a bad spell in my life. But oddly enough I took a right brain left brain test again during that time (on the internet) and was surprise dthat my ALWAYS right brain has significantly shifted to left.
