Challenging Energies

Happy Easter everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter Sunday! Wherever you are in the world – I wish you a peaceful day! Now onto today’s blog post – on of all things – challenging energies that we are currently experiencing.

As a little backstory – my awakening happened in earnest starting back in 2014. During those next few years, after my Kundalini was activated, I experienced the process where the energies start burning through all of your chakras forcing you to look at yourself, your life and open your eyes to a lot of different things.

As I eventually learned over the years, although my process was triggered by Kundalini, which is a more intense process, everyone is experiencing energy ‘upgrades’ by the incoming photonic energy which I talk about here.

Spiritual Awakening – Why? Our Place in the Universe – Heather Burket

This energy has been reaching the planet and has been increasing over the years. This energy is bringing darkness to light – the Age of Aquarius. This energy forces people to look at themselves and address their shadows. Many of us have been doing the healing work for many years. I personally have done pretty much most healing modalities from traditional therapy, EFT, acupuncture, Tachyon chamber, crystal beds, healing sound bowls and many more.

I am aware of this process and so when I see headlines about people acting out, people killing themselves and other atrocities, I am aware of the intensity of these energies on people and those who have not done the inner work. I also know that everyone has their own soul path and plan and what they want to experience. I’ve observed people driving on the highway like they are in a Hollywood movie, and they are immune to crashing. Yesterday, I had someone in a very small vehicle, come out of nowhere, pass the car behind me to barely get behind me before almost crashing head on into another vehicle. And then I see them wave their hands around in the air frustrated. As the lanes expanded to 2, they proceeded to speed up and race off. This is just one example I’ve seen where people have been completely unhinged, but I see people driving like it’s a full moon almost everyday weaving in and out of traffic.

I send them love and ask Archangel Michael to protect them. Not sure if that is crossing a boundary or not, but I figure it can’t hurt. These energies are challenging and the outer changes, restrictions, and everything that has come about in the last few years really has put a lot of people in less than stellar mental health.

Even for me, I think that I have done so much work and yet sometimes I feel like I am like one of those cartoons where I am sliding into home base, except for I’m bumbling and tripping along the way even though I am so close….

I remember a year or so ago, one of my friends had recommended this I think it was a 6-week, weekly audio course that used light language. Light language in case you haven’t heard of it, is language that people can speak, that sounds like gibberish basically (lol) that is somewhat channeled through them that affects your DNA. So, there isn’t really a translation to it. Anyway, in one session, I had the great idea to hold my powerful sentient plasma quartz (a very powerful quartz crystal – I talk about in this blog post

My Top 5 Crystal Experiences – Tropica Exotica, LLC

while listening to light language.)

So shortly after that, as I was going to sleep, my body jerked like I had been hit by a cattle prod, which is one of the effects of Kundalini energy – that is not regulated properly. I had experienced it a few times, so I knew that was what it was. (Other people experience beautiful hand movements called mudras, but not me…apparently.) Then, during my sleep, I woke up at one point and started to experience these weird light movements in my head? Kind of hard to explain, but it almost reminded me of when you turn on a robot or something and all these lights start going on and moving around in these patterns. It was very odd. However, I thought it must be something good – maybe something was activating? I don’t know.

However, the next day, I remember feeling like I was about to have a nervous breakdown. I remember walking up my stairs, thinking I can’t do this anymore. I think it’s interesting how I remember experiencing extreme emotional upset, but afterwards, it is really hard to remember that pain, but I know it was extremely difficult.

Well luckily, the person that was giving the course talked about just how hard it was for them as well after that last session. Even though I felt like I had done so much inner work – I still felt completely taken aback by just how much emotional pain I was experiencing, and I honestly didn’t even know the cause from doing that light language healing. I can only assume it was some buried pain that the light language help dredge up and release.

Fast forward to today and the energies that are coming through now are STILL difficult. Over the years I’ve learned a lot of things about myself regarding being sensitive to energy. One is that I am an empath, I can’t believe I didn’t realize that until so late in life. Seems like everyone knows of that term now.

The other is that I found out that I had been transitioning to a Crystal Aura the last few years (Transition to Crystal Aura – Heather Burket) which makes me an uber sensitive person.

I have learned how to do energy clearing practices and found that it has helped, however, I have to be very disciplined and do it every day, and I don’t always stay disciplined.

Recently, I’ve noticed myself feeling emotions that I don’t even think are mine, and it has been difficult to tell exactly where they are coming from and why, but they have been challenging to say the least. I had heard one psychic person recommend wearing a hat to shield your crown chakra and third eye from picking up on others’ energies and so I tried it and I can tell you it has helped! As I was having all these weird, anxious, quite discombobulated emotions, I actually saw a visualization of two almost cartoon like characters being animated and acting aggravated at each other. I have no idea sometimes what I experience, but all I can say, is that it was not MY energy – lol!

Being aware of my energy sensitivity and what I personally need to stay within my OWN energy has been extremely important lately especially with all the emotions of the collective consciousness. I don’t stay too much in tune with astrology, but I do think that some of these aspects potentially could be aggravating people in general, along with the photonic energy that is coming in. Additionally, there has been a lot of solar flare activity from the sun. I follow the Planetary K Index posted on NASA’s website and it’s been reading quite high lately – red!

In other words, I think the energy is pretty chaotic and intense right now!! So, if you are having a challenging time, you are not the only one. All I can say is that now more than ever it is important to get out your energy toolbox and start using those tools!

Here’s a list of things that I would recommend:

  1. Epsom salt bath – this will remove negative energy and any energies that you may have picked up that aren’t yours.
  2. Energy clearing practices – I would do both in the morning and evening
  3. Wear energy protecting crystals – Black tourmaline, rainbow fluorite
  4. Wear grounding crystals – hematite, black tourmaline, red jasper, smoky quartz
  5. Wear a hat that covers your head
  6. Drink a lot of water – hydration is always good to help your body process these incoming energies
  7. Get plenty of sleep
  8. Exercise – even 30 minutes of walking a day can help
  9. Journal – writing helps me tremendously to process my emotions
  10. Don’t take anyone’s words or behaviors personally. Just be an observer and understand that people are having a hard time and that they are in pain if they are lashing out.
  11. Be out in nature when you can – take a hike, go to the beach, or a park.
  12. Try grounding – walk barefoot – connect to the Earth

But most importantly, take time for yourself away from others and practice self-care, whatever that means to you. It’s important to detach and focus on your own energy and become aware of what is going on internally. And if you have to – seek out professional care if you feel like you need that support.

These energies have been intense, and it hasn’t been an easy ride at all, especially if you are sensitive to energy. The good thing is that the more that we are able to allow in these energies, the lighter that we will feel. And I have been feeling that as well lately too. Last week I couldn’t feel my physical body at all as I was lying on my bed – it’s a pretty trippy feeling! So, hang in there, it’s a process and these are tough times. Practice self-care above all else and don’t beat yourself up if you are having a hard time these days.

In love, light and gratitude,

Heather

Healing Modalities Part 3 – Crystals

I wanted to dedicate a whole blog post to crystals because of their amazing healing abilities. After I was first introduced to crystals, I, like many of you probably reading this post became hooked! I became so enthralled and enchanted by these stunning beauties that I actually began selling them online. They are absolutely amazing and wonderful tools to assist us on this journey. Before we dive into it, it’s a good idea to learn more about energy and our emotions in order to understand how crystals assist with healing.

Emotions and Energy

First, you must think of it in terms of energy. We are energetic beings, and our energy varies from day to day. Our energy is impacted by a variety of factors, but a large majority of our energy is derived from our emotions. So, before we delve into crystals and how they work, we need to first understand our own energy.

Here is a list of some of the factors that affect our energy.

  1. Our own emotions

Once you reach a certain level of emotional understanding you realize that you and you alone are responsible for your own emotions and your own emotional well-being. These emotions are energy that impact our overall energy that we maintain and emit into the environment around us.

So, let’s look at a couple of examples. 1) You wake up and have a full week of meetings, deadlines, and presentations. You may be feeling stressed out, anxious, edgy, or irritated. 2) Day 1 of a two-week vacation – just you and an open expanse of beachfront property. You are probably feeling excited, relaxed, calm, and joyful. So, you can see how our emotional response to situations affect our emotional state and therefore our energy.

  • Home environment

So now let’s talk a little about our home environment. Can you tell a difference in your own emotional state if there’s a lot of clutter versus everything organized and clean?

I know that doesn’t necessarily apply to all people as clutter doesn’t impact some personality types, but there may be other examples for them – such as loud noise – such as television, traffic, etc.

How many of us have walked into a hotel room and just sighed and jumped on the bed to relax? Part of that is because there isn’t a lot of doodads, knick knacks, etc. everywhere impacting the flow of energy.

  • Diet/exercise

This is pretty much a no-brainer. Most of us are aware, at some level, of how we feel after we eat. As you become more self-aware, you may realize that you feel really lethargic and spaced out after eating a heavy meal at lunch (I’m looking at myself here). On the other end of the spectrum – you may go to a healthy retreat where the focus is on fresh, local, non-GMO, organic fruits and vegetables and realize just how amazing the food tastes and how your body feels invigorated after eating. And we all know just how great we feel after exercising.

  • Our focus

Social media, television shows, magazines, books – all these things that we give our attention to have an impact on us. Do you find yourself depressed after seeing the latest post from your friend on yet another vacation? Observe that seemingly flawless model on the front cover of that magazine and begin to feel deflated? Get anxious after reading that latest murder novel and run and double-check your lock on your door before going to bed?

  • Stars/cosmos

And then there are other things that we are impacted by for which we have no control and probably lack awareness of its existence. The planetary alignments, moon phases and incoming energies from the universe all impact us in various ways from being anxious, lethargic, to energetic and unable to sleep as I mentioned in my chapter on Being an Empath.

So, what does all of this have to do with crystals? These are all examples of how we, in our daily lives, are energetically challenged day-in and day-out through a variety of causes.

Crystals are one tool that we have available to us to assist us to become more in alignment with our true selves.

So How do Crystals Work?

As we saw above, we are highly variable in our emotions due to a variety of causes. Crystals, on the other hand, emit energy in a steady state. Their energy is constant, so when we are near these crystals, we start to resonate with their energy. Depending on the sensitivity of the individual – this can vary, but in general, within 3 feet is when we will be in their energetic field and begin to resonate with their energy.

So, by being in their energetic field, we are impacted. There are some things that I believe that can impact this as well – which is belief. Belief systems are a whole topic by themselves, but the power of the mind, the law of attraction – those all come into play here. If you strongly believe that crystals don’t do anything – then as you are a creator being – then that will be true for you. We create our own reality with our thoughts and beliefs. I’m reminded of people that have healed themselves through the powerful belief that they can.

And as you would suspect, different crystals emit a different vibration which is why different crystals are chosen to heal different issues. Some crystals are very high vibration – so you would not choose one of those for anxiety – as one example.

And just like the crystals are different, people are also different in their sensitivity to crystal energies. Some people can feel energy easier than others. And as you raise your own vibration, you will most likely will become more sensitive to energy and therefore to crystals and their energy.

In addition to affecting our energy through their resonance, just having a piece in our environment can instill a sense of happiness and wonder as we appreciate their beauty.

When it comes to working with crystals, it is always recommended to work with one at a time. One great idea is to buy a journal and start to document your experiences with each individual crystal.

Just as we noted above, there are many causes to our emotions and to our energetic state. It is a good idea to be more mindful of how your emotions shift and to be able to identify the cause. This will help you to better understand yourself and to help determine the impacts of the crystals versus the causes listed above.

I thought I would share a few examples of experiences that I’ve had with crystals.

Crystal Experience No. 1 – Azeztulite

My first story is about Azeztulite. Now I had not heard about this crystal before I experienced its energy. I was at the Tucson Gem Show walking around one of the show locations and as I walked by one stand with these white Azeztulite crystals – all my arm hairs stood up on my arm as I walked by. I thought that was strange, and I continued walking. As I walked by a second time, the same thing happened, so I decided that was a sign that I needed to take note, so I stopped to look at these crystals. These were white Azeztulite crystals. So, I decided to take some back to sell. When I got home, I took one and held it in my hand. I could feel the energy pulsating through my hand! It was powerful! If you haven’t heard about this crystal – I encourage you to research them and learn more about them. I believe that these crystals are very powerful and very important to use at this time to help us evolve spiritually.

Crystal Experience No. 2 – Large Quartz Crystal Cluster

For this experience, I was at the Denver Gem Show. There was a very large approximately 6-7-foot-tall clear quartz crystal cluster on display. I had seen this particular specimen before, and I decided to go in front of it and take a closer look. As I stood in front of it, I immediately started to cry! The emotion happened immediately – so I know that it was specifically due to standing in front of the crystal. So, to me, again, this goes to show you just how powerful these crystals can be. I believe that they work on our energy bodies, helping us to release stored up emotions. That was what I believe was happening here. I don’t think we realize just how much we have emotions bottled up inside of us that need to be released. If you ever get a chance, stand in front of a huge quartz cluster, and let it all out!!

Crystal Experience No. 3 – Sentient Plasma Crystal™

So now we are coming to my most recent absolutely exciting story! This is one of my favorite newly discovered crystals! I was at the Denver Gem Show, and I had been looking for some personal pieces for myself. I stopped at one booth and began talking to the salesperson. He ended up showing me some of these extremely clear quartz pieces. If you find very clear quartz, most likely it is from Colombia, and that was the case for this particular piece that I was looking at. This particular type of clear quartz is 93% pure quartz! There were several pieces there, but I picked up one that I was drawn to. I placed it in my left hand, and after a few minutes, I could feel the energy pulsating through my hand. It was incredible!

Later after I got home, I decided to meditate with this crystal. As I held it in my hand, I had a few different experiences. One was that I could feel energy moving in my face – it was a very odd sensation – around my cheeks. Then, I felt as if I could feel various beings around me in my room. In fact, I kept on opening my eyes, because I could feel their presence so strongly. Next, I had this very unusual vision of a crystal cluster – that was actually glowing blue from the inside. Now, I thought to myself that is very odd. And I remember telling a friend about that vision I had with this crystal. A few days I found some information indicating that apparently these crystals are not from Earth but are seeded from an ice planet and formed from water as opposed to heat and pressure. They were described as having a blue glow from the ice when they observed them at the source. How bizarre is that? Below is the article:

Sentient Plasma Quartz Crystal – Nick Newmont

So, this crystal was telling me about itself – which I found pretty cool! I have had a few more amazing experiences with this crystal. I believe it is very powerful and am excited to see what all it can do!

Those are just a few personal stories that I thought I’d share to give you some insight as to what you might expect working with crystals. It does take a while and a lot of self-awareness to be able to discern how the crystals are working with you – but you will get there!

How Do Crystals Fit into Overall Healing?

There are many different healing modalities that I’ve discussed in previous blog posts. Crystals have their place as strong healing tools. But it is also important to understand that there are many healing modalities and having a strong understanding of your inner world should serve as the base. I use crystals every day. But I also use other healing modalities as well. I think crystals have become so popular over the past few years because they are serving to heal us, to connect us with nature, to others, and to elevate our consciousness so that we can evolve and grow spiritually. If you haven’t yet explored the world of crystals, I encourage you to journey into this incredible world of wonder, intrigue, and magic!

Empath Stories

This is my last article in my 3-part blog/video posts regarding being an Empath. In case you haven’t yet read my other article or seen my other video, you can check them out here:

Being an Empath

https://heatherburket.com/2020/05/17/being-an-empath/

Tips for Empaths – video only – you can just check out my YouTube Channel “Tropica Exotica”

In my previous article “Being an Empath”, I discussed one of the experiences that you may have is picking up on other people’s energy and their emotions – and not realizing it. This actually still freaks me out a little bit to be honest. So, I wanted to share a few of my personal experiences so that you can hopefully learn from my experiences. This was probably happening all my life up to this point, to some degree, however, I think because of my spiritual awakening, the abilities to pick up on other people’s energy increased. And I think as we continue to grow spiritually that we will naturally be more sensitive to energy. So, it’s important to learn about this concept.

Empath Story No.1

When it comes to picking up on ONE particular individual’s energy, I have to base it on my own personal experience. For me, it has been: 1) someone that I am close to, 2) someone who is also psychic (has psychic abilities) 3) possibly someone is not emotionally healthy – lol! And honestly, I kind of feel uncomfortable saying that, but that is what this first story is about. So, here’s what I remember. This was several years ago at a work environment at a very stressful time at the company. I remember standing up in my dining room feeling this very frantic, vulnerable, shaky, “I can’t do this anymore” feeling – which is totally not like me at all. At some point, I remember talking to my partner at the time who talked me through what I was feeling. I don’t remember the details of the conversation exactly, but basically, we discussed how there was one individual where I was working who had a reputation for impacting others – and not in a good way. People were fearful of them, were glad when they were not around – just in general someone who was not well liked. They explained how sometimes emotionally unhealthy people can impact others, and people like me, who are sensitive, may end up taking on these emotions and not be aware of it. They also explained how once the person who has been taking on these emotions, realizes it and releases it, that that “ENERGY” will move onto the next person. So as I began to process this, and actually get mad about it – both mad at that person and mad at myself for being a sucker and picking up on this energy, then I did release this and I could tell I felt better ONCE I realized that the emotions that I was feeling were not my own. Apparently, this is a well- known phenomenon in the mental health world.

Well, lo and behold, that is what happened. So, once I realized this and released these frantic emotions that I was experiencing, apparently another co-worker took on this energy (of course another empath). This person ended up in the hospital actually. They became so distraught that they were throwing up and not able to take their necessary medication and ended up in the hospital. When they came back to work, I explained what I thought might have happened and they were taken aback, but open to this explanation.

There are a few things that stood out to me the most from this experience. The main one is that the emotions that I had been feeling were actually very foreign to me. And that was one of the key learning experiences to me to help me identify if what I am feeling is truly MY OWN emotions or someone else’s. The best way to describe it would be frantic, shaky and very, very vulnerable. The other thing is I was frankly shocked at this whole concept that it actually CAN happen and that I allowed this to happen and could have kept on going through it and made decisions based on emotions that weren’t even mine! This was truly an eye-opening experience and I was thankful that I had a partner who could help me understand this.

Empath Story No. 2

This one deals with a Twin Flame connection that served as a spiritual catalyst for me several years ago. If you want to read more about that, check out these articles below:

Kundalini Activation – Psychic Experiences

https://heatherburket.com/2019/05/22/kundalini-activation-psychic-experiences/

The Twin Flame connection is a unique connection that involves a lot of telepathic and psychic communication. And at the time, I had never heard of the concept, so I was completely thrown off by the connection. At the time of this particular event, I had not spoken to him in over 6 months. So, one month, all of sudden I had a really hard time sleeping. I was experiencing a lot of anxiety that was spilling over into my sleep. In fact, my sleep was so disturbed that I had to take off several workdays that month. Additionally, I had purchased different types of OTC sleeping pills and experimenting with them and dosages to see which ones would work (not wake up groggy).Finally, at the end of this month, I received an email from my Twin Flame letting me know that they had been let go from their job (where I also worked). I was completely thrown off. That was their last day and I didn’t even get to say good-bye. However, ‘coincidentally’ a few days later, I went down to get a coffee and ran into them. They told me that they had been told at the BEGINNING of that month that they were being let go at the end of the month. They told me about the stress that they had been going through getting ready to move and get things lined out for their future.

Sometime afterwards, I began to think that maybe my sleep-related issues were related to them and picking up their stress and anxiety from losing their job? A few months later, I ended up doing a psychic reading with someone that I’ve since had multiple readings with and completely trust their abilities. A lot of times, newly awakened people, seek out psychics because they have so many experiences that they don’t understand and need guidance on. So, I would save up a list of questions to ask once I scheduled a reading. I asked them if I had been picking up on their energy and that was the reason why I was not sleeping at all that month? They told me that ‘yes’ we were actually playing ‘empath ping pong’ is how they described it and said that it is not fun. They said that the TF would get stressed out and basically I would pick up on their stressful energy and then I was stressed out because of my own struggles with my personal relationship and send that energy over to my TF and they would pick it up. I found that very interesting to say the least! I was actually very glad to have found an explanation as to why I was SOOOO exhausted because my sleep was so out of whack. It was truly a frustrating time.

Empath Story No. 3

This story has to do with a friend who has psychic abilities. I was driving into work one day, very early – like 6 AM and I had just been thinking about how everything was going okay. I was in a good state of mind, when suddenly, I just had this feeling like “I can’t do this anymore” and I started to have anxiety and dread going into work. I was literally about to turn around and drive back home. Then, the thought came to me, ‘wait a minute, I JUST started to have this frantic feeling, when I was fine just 5 minutes ago.’ And also, I realized that I had that same sinking feeling as I had in the first story – this frantic type feeling that was not ME. So, as I continued to drive, I started to do energy clearing work and just imagined white light coming down into my body and I believe I asked whatever energy that is not mine to leave my energetic space immediately. I started to feel better immediately. As I continued to drive down the road, I started to think about where that energy was coming from? What person’s energy was I picking up on? And then I thought, I wonder if it was one friend in particular. I know that we were both more on the psychic side, so wondered if maybe somehow, I was just picking up on her energy because she and I were probably just both more tuned in.

Later in the day, I contacted this person and asked them if they had, by chance, had some sort of stressful, anxiety causing situation to happen to them that morning? They said yes, and they explained to me what happened. I am not going to share the story that they shared with me, because it was personal, but it was definitely a situation that would have caused stress and anxiety. And I told them that I had picked up on their energy at that same time.

The Lessons

I’m sharing these experiences because if you are new to understanding that you are an empath, you may learn from my stories. Basically, if you are sensitive to energy, it is possible that you may have emotions that are not yours. Sometimes you can determine WHO you are picking up this energy from, but that won’t always be the case. Sometimes you have to do some detective work. And other times, I believe that I pick up on collective energy, that is not necessarily connected to one person. I’ll share one example on that. The other day, a hurricane was in the Gulf of Mexico – a category 4, which is a very strong hurricane with wind speeds of 140 mph. The meteorologists had said that it was going into Louisiana, even though it looked like it was headed for Texas. I started to have this foreboding feeling and I wasn’t for sure what was causing it. So, I grabbed one of my large pieces of black tourmaline and held it in my hand. If you don’t know, black tourmaline is a very well-known powerful crystal that assists in removing and dispelling negative energy. I sat and meditated and began to ask myself questions 1) is this energy I’m picking up from others fears? 2) is this feeling because I KNOW that the meteorologists are wrong, and it’s headed this way? As I sat with these questions, I began to lose the emotion of the foreboding feeling and began to feel a sense of calm again. So, the lesson for me was if I start to have a ‘run-away’ emotion, that is not within my normal range of emotion and matches what I am experiencing, then I start to question that maybe this energy is not mine.

For me, in particular, it seems that this ‘panicky, frantic’ feeling is not normal for me, so if I start to feel that way, then I realize that maybe this emotion is not mine.

The other thing that I have to talk about is the concept of boundaries. Boundaries, to me, are a few things and in this instance, it’s about maintaining your own energetic boundary. So, if you are picking up on other people’s emotions, it is also because you are ‘open’ emotionally and perhaps creating stronger energetic boundaries would be in order. I’m not an expert, by any means, on this topic, but as a result of these experiences, I have definitely begun implementing practices such as the ones that I mentioned in the article “Tips for Empaths” and that has helped me tremendously.

I sometimes wonder just how many empaths out there are experiencing anxiety and stress because they are simply picking up on other people’s energy and just don’t realize it?

This is not knowledge that we are born with, so we have to learn. And each of us has our own path to follow. For me, I know that these 3 instances taught me a LOT and as my most recent experience just happened, I’ve learned to quickly identify and address emotional distress that I’m experiencing that is unnecessary.

Feeling Energy

One of the reasons I started this blog was to help provide answers/assistance to others on a Spiritual path. When my spiritual awakening happened, my Kundalini was activated which ended up opening me up pretty rapidly to psychic experiences. This included being very sensitive to energy. Things were kind of confusing at the onset, because I knew ‘something’ had happened related to my Twin Flame, but at the time I did not know it was a Kundalini activation nor did I know what all would happen. But one of the things that I started to experience was related to ‘feeling’ things and I thought it was connected to my Twin Flame. It was all very confusing. But before I get into more details about that, I’m just going to break down the various different energy experiences I’ve had and my current beliefs on what these experiences mean. As always – follow your own intuition for if my information resonates with you or not.

One of the frustrating things about this process is that it is hard to find information about what you experience. The way that I have learned is through listening and watching other people’s videos and reading books. However, a lot of the times, people will just throw out a nugget in the middle of an interview, or it is on a video where people are just asking random questions – so you end up just picking up information by chance. And good luck if you remember what video it was you were watching or what minute in the interview in case you want to go back and refresh your memory. So, I’m trying to develop articles about topics and name them appropriately so people can find the information that they are looking for – at least that is my hope…

  1. Energetic rushes throughout my body

I started to experience this actually before my spiritual awakening. My dog of 14 years died in December of 2013. In dealing with the grief, I would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and freak out realizing that he was gone. During those times, I would feel this energetic rush go throughout my body and I felt ‘love.’ The energy felt warm and comforting and definitely made me feel better. I always thought at that time, it was a sign from by dog, Bailey, that he was with me. Years later, I was watching a video by Psychic Bob and he said that these energetic rushes are your spirit guides way of raising your energy when you are in a low vibration due to grief/sadness. I thought that made sense. It’s comforting to know that we are receiving help – especially when we are going through hard times.

  1. Goosebump ‘touches’ or ‘Truth Bumps’

This was one of the experiences that I first had that was really confusing. I was always feeling like someone was touching the top of my forearms. Again – since I knew everything was happening because of meeting my twin flame, at one point I thought it was him touching me and it was freaking me out. I would look down and find this little round patch of goosebumps. From what I understand, that is your spirit guides and what they do is temporarily lower their energy in order to match yours in order to communicate with you. They are also called “truth bumps.” I’ve also experienced these while journaling and thinking about something and my spirit guides will ‘touch’ me to give me a ‘yes’ to what I was currently thinking. These experiences kind of come and go at this point. I still experience it, but it was very prevalent early on after my kundalini activation.

  1. Feeling light, no physical ‘body’

One of the ascension symptoms that I have felt is that when we get these incoming energy waves, sometimes I’m lying on my bed and I feel like I don’t have a physical body. It’s a very odd sensation, that is kind of cool, so when it’s happened, I’ve kind of just sat with that feeling. It’s like your body kind of disappears and you have an awareness of yourself, but the density of your physical body has lessened.

My body must have adjusted to the energy, because I haven’t felt this in a while, but it was very cool.

  1. Energetic Dust Bunnies

These are kind of funny. I came across that term at some point – and it really is apropos. Sometimes, I’ll feel almost like this little energy ball rolling down my arm. I believe that it is other people’s energy that has just kind of made its way into your energy field. I’m not exactly sure why, but my gut instinct is that that person might be relying a little bit too much on you, so their energy might just ‘stick’ on you. This is one of the reasons I’m an advocate for clearing your energetic field on a daily basis. It’s just a good practice.

  1. Physical touch – Hand on my arm

At one point, I had an Out of Body Experience and I remember as I was going back into my body, I remember thinking – oh, gosh I’m sliding down the bed, I’m going to run into my dog. That is when I felt this literal hand on my upper arm, grabbing me. I remember feeling freaked out and thinking “Please let me go, you are scaring me.” And then I felt the same energetic rush throughout my body after my dog had died like Experience No. 1. It felt like love and comfort. Later, I asked a psychic about this experience and they told me that when you go out of body, a lot of times, it’s a difficult transition to get back into the body, so your spirit guides have to help you sometimes. The energetic rush and feeling I experienced afterwards was them trying to let me know it’s okay – that it was them.

  1. Energy sensations – tingling – face

I am working with a crystal right now called a Sentient Plasma Quartz Crystal. There isn’t much information written about it. But, one of the things that I experience when I hold it and meditate with it is that it makes my face tingle. I’m assuming that it is moving energy. It feels much like when you feel your 3rd eye tingle when you meditate, except this is on my cheeks.

  1. Energetic rush – shape of a human

This is a cool one. I’ve felt it several times, and I felt this one quite recently. It’s an energetic rush that comes from the outside into your body, that is in the shape of a human, and sometimes it feels like they are hugging you. This is different than the energetic rush that goes through your body in Experience No.1. This one comes externally INTO your body. I believe that these are tied to people that we are involved with. I am not sure if it is their higher self or if it’s just their energy coming to you. But I believe that even though our ‘human’ selves might not physically be with one another, I believe our energy can have a will of its own and go where it damn well pleases – lol! I also feel that this experience happens when there is some deeper connection with another person. Maybe their 3D ego self acts like they are not interested, but either their higher self or some aspect of them has a different idea. So maybe they decide to come visit and give you a hug to let you know that they care about you.

  1. Psychic cording

Psychic cording is when we form energetic connections to other people through our chakras. These connections are not all bad, but sometimes they can be when other people have an unbalanced energetic pull on us and can drain our energy. We form them through our bonds with other people. So, I had this one experience where I actually felt someone cord to me. I feel like my whole spiritual awakening process is one big lesson. And I learned a lot from this particular experience. I think that are some people out there that are psychic, and they don’t know it, and they don’t know how powerful they are. In this case, I don’t think this person was actually aware at all of what they were doing – but I definitely think it is a pattern for them. I also learned that I apparently don’t have good energetic boundaries – lol! So, this person, was in general, emotionally needy. They looked at me very strongly and directly and the next thing I know, I feel this tug at my sacral chakra and I immediately felt sad and energetically drained. They had corded to me!!!!!!!!!! Of course, being naïve at the time, I immediately interpreted my experience to mean that ‘we must have had a past life together’ that’s why there is such a strong connection! However, later I realized no, that was someone cording to me and so I went through the process of cord cutting. Another energetic practice that I recommend on a daily basis.

  1. Scratch on face/touching

At one point, I woke up in the middle of the night because I felt what resembled a fingernail scratching my face. Needless to say, it was unnerving. My dog does sleep in the bed with me, but he was not the perp. I turned on the lights and honestly think I kept the lights on the rest of the night. I am not sure what that was – a ghost? What was funny about it, is that I keep a huge piece of selenite on my nightstand to keep spirits away from me while I sleep. However, I just HAPPENED to have left my large selenite piece upstairs the same night that happened. Coincidence? I don’t know.

Another thing that people might experience is someone touching them. I have not had this experience, but I have family members who have. I believe that these are ghosts. They are just trying to get your attention. I personally would be doing some activities to get them out of my house – but that’s just me – to each their own. I have a portal in my guest bedroom upstairs – so I know ‘spirits/entities’ come into my house, but I keep the energy clear in my home through various practices.

  1. Electrical currents

Okay, so this is an odd one. One of the people that I feel is very connected to the spirit realm and who is gifted in helping other through their tools, is Cassady Cayne. I started following her work and purchasing her tools back when I met my Twin Flame. She has a lot of great energy clearing tools. One of them is a meditation to listen to. While I was listening to it, the first time, I literally felt these electrical currents go down my back. I have no idea how this stuff works – but something was happening! I’m assuming that it was energy being moved in my body where it needed to be moved and/or energy clearing that needed to happen. It was very unusual, and I’ve only experienced it that one time, while listening to one of her audios.

  1. Warming sensation

I also experienced this while listening to the same audio by Cassady Cayne. In fact, in the audio, in the exact moment that I felt something – she asks, “Did you feel that?” It was an audio that was clearing the chakras, and when the audio came to the heart chakra – I felt this energy sensation much like when you put a healing ointment on – such as Ben Gay where it’s kind of a cool burn. Again – I believe that this is clearing out energy.

Kundalini Energy

  1. Champagne bubbles in sacral chakra

Before my Kundalini energy unwound, I had this experience of this bubbling type sensation in my sacral chakra area. I came across an article that described this energy experience as “champagne bubbles” and that is EXACTLY what it felt like. I only experienced this for maybe a couple of days before my Kundalini was activated fully.

  1. Kundalini ‘whip-like’ energy

Okay so this is an odd one, and not sure a lot of people will experience this, but if you have had your Kundalini activated, one of the things that can happen is that your body may jerk involuntarily. I’ve read different ways in which people may experience this – some people may have uncontrolled hand movements. For me, I have had these experiences where I’m laying in bed, and all of a sudden my entire body jerks and is lifted off of the bed rather violently and the best way I can describe it is whip-like, because it’s just quick and short. I noticed that this coincided when we had very strong energy waves. This happened a few years ago, and I haven’t had that those experiences recently. All I know is that it is related to Kundalini energy. I haven’t studied it that much to be honest. And that is one of the things – we just read and pick up what we can, there is just so much going on during a spiritual awakening – and it isn’t like you were taught about this growing up.

  1. Hyper energy

This is another experience related to Kundalini. Again – it’s very personal to each person, but I remember literally dancing around my house for 3 hours straight. You have all this energy and you don’t know what to do with it – so I ended up just dancing. However, the next day, I remember I couldn’t get out of bed – lol! I believe that you need to try and regulate these energy bursts – maybe through more structured means like running a bit, walking. Not going full on like I did and then burning yourself out.

So those are some examples of the various things that you may being to experience related to energy. I think it’s great that there are people out there that understand what the meaning is when things happen – however, that really hasn’t been my experience. I experience things and then try to figure out the meaning. I hope what I’ve shared has helped you if you are
