11:11 on the clock – that’s how my spiritual awakening came into full swing.
I’d always heard my American friends call it a lucky number, suggesting that making a wish at this exact moment could manifest just about any miracle. And it was that very day, 27th April 2017, when I’d seen the number and wondered if the Universe’s Wishing Foundation was really a thing. Or if we were just talking about Santa for adults?
Giving it no longer than a moment’s thought, I shrugged it off.
11:11 Once Again
A while later, I had time to spare. So, aimlessly browsing through a website about human psychology and relations, for no specific reason, I found a blog that talked about God’s plan.
As I eventually scrolled down past the article itself, I came across a comment from someone talking about ‘Twin Flames‘. The anonymous person described it in a way that made me curious, but I got back to work and forgot about this too, just as quickly.
By night, the phrase Twin Flames was spinning in my head and I couldn’t get it out. So finally, I looked it up and the very first article I saw was from a website that had “1111” in its URL. I had goosebumps!
This would be my first encounter with ‘Divine Guidance’.
What I was reading was so unusual and weird at the time, I felt more skeptical than anything. As my conflicted thoughts began to grow, I decided to end my browsing for the night. And there, on the clock, once again, was 11:11! Staring back at a dumbstruck me. It was a full circle.
Lying down with my eyes closed and heart palpating wildly with the possibility of this not being a coincidence, I remember feeling my forehead tickle and tingle. Closing my eyes, I let the sensations take over me. I began seeing a beautiful pinkish-purple flower with countless petals just spinning majestically in my mind’s eye before I blacked out into a deep sleep.
I share more from that night, in the video below. Hope you enjoy my narrative!
This is the story of the day I was pulled into the unbelievable world of Signs, Synchronicities, Angel Numbers, Healing, Meditation, and more. This is the story of my strange spiritual awakening. You’re either a believer here or a skeptic. Within the span of a year, I had completely moved from the latter (extremist) to the former (extremist, once again).
Let’s start with the phrase “Spiritual Awakening”. What does it mean?
To me, this meant waking up to a few realizations:
- One, out of nowhere, a higher intelligence had gathered a keen interest in my life and was guiding me. I couldn’t see or hear anyone, but the power was inspiring my thoughts in some way that I hadn’t experienced before. Whenever I followed the guidance, I would see an undeniable ‘affirmation’. Or what we casually call a sign, an omen.
- Two, 11:11 is a real thing after all. If you’re seeing it too – welcome home! The Universe is letting you know through these repeating numbers, called Angel Numbers, that you’re about witness some spiritual transformations. Life is about to change very deeply, very soon.
- Three, it’s not easy to talk about. We are Spiritual Beings living a Human Experience, but the kind of soul amnesia we’ve been put under has made us extreme skeptics. Nevertheless, by sharing my own experiences, I hope to validate and normalize some of this otherworldy stuff.
- And four, you can’t undo this. It becomes a part of you. Yes, the struggle and contrast can take a while to grasp. But this journey isn’t meant to be experienced in the closet forever. In due course of time, your spiritual shenanigans will become a part of the world’s waking and walking experience.
Why did I have a Spiritual Awakening? Can it happen to you, too?
Unknowingly, I had asked for my spiritual awakening when I prayed to the Universe to help me make more sense of my life. As someone who had a relatively “perfect” life on paper, I was just as perfectly lost living it.
Unsatisfied at work, unsatisfied with relations, no matter how hard I tried, no matter how much I engaged myself in fitness, learning new things, or meeting new people, I felt like something was eating up my mind. I just wasn’t at peace. I tried gratitude writing and I tried walking in nature – all temporary fixes.
Something was very off, and I didn’t know what. I would later discover this is called the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’. It was time for the butterfly to come out of its cocoon.
So I asked for it – I asked the Universe what the point of my life was. And surely, it humbled me with answers in the form of many synchronicities like randomly finding the perfect book, my spirit animals showing up repeatedly as I drove, or simply overhearing someone say exactly what I needed to hear as they walked past by.
While I don’t think every person within this lifetime will go through a spiritual awakening (my theory is that it’s served to us in waves), many are. To date, my blog has been read over half a million times, and the readers continue to grow – which tells me there’s a lot of spiritual waking up happening!
How it comes to you will be unique to you, but holding the desire for a Spiritual journey is in itself an invitation to begin this journey.
Did my spiritual awakening make things any better?
While there were some drastic, strange changes that caught me off-guard and overwhelmed me at times, there was also a lot that became better in my life.
A major difference I saw was not just an improvement in mental health and a rising hope for a direction in life, but my physical health and overall reality began to change, too. Here’s how :
I shed a LOT of weight. I went down 2 whole points on the BMI scale.
My diet preferences changed. For the first few months, my body repelled oily or heavy foods. Most of my diet became fruit-and-salad-based. Over time this normalized, of course, but that shift gave a huge boost to my health.
Over the years I’ve experienced many dietary changes, from repelling eggs to rejecting caffeine. As they say, your body slowly begins to prepare you for deeper levels of healing.
My energy levels started fluctuating tremendously when I was around people.
For a couple of years to follow, there were days when I would feel like I was living worth 5 days at a time! And on others, I would be so tired I’d simply stay in and sleep.
Energy is a crazy thing and just like most of the spiritual workers out there, I’m still figuring out how to deal with it. It did finally make sense why I’m an emotional sponge, and how to stop soaking up other people’s energy.
My psychic senses began to clear up.
(Wait, what? Well, this escalated quickly!)
My psychic senses, let me help you understand at a very high-level the ones I’ve developed personally:
#1 – Clairsentience
A heightened awareness of other people’s sentiments, even if they’re not aware themselves. This is basically what we call being (really) good at empathy.
#2 – Clairvoyance
In other words, having visions about an event in the future that later manifests. This happens to me during meditations and some of my dreams, and no – I can’t tell you what your future is.
Clairvoyance for me means seeing bits and pieces of important events that are coming up for me in my journey, thus guiding me to prepare better for them.
#3 – Intuitiveness
When you begin trusting this Higher State’s guidance, you notice that you are more in tune with it.
You can trust your ‘gut feeling’ a lot more now, and you don’t need to worry about why you feel something so strongly. You just obey. If you’re trying to develop that, I’d recommend reading this post.
#4 – Telepathy
Of course not at every moment, and not very extensively, because that would drive me (or anyone) crazy. But it is rapidly becoming easier to catch hold of a person’s thought just a second before they say it out loud.
The funny thing is, I am not necessarily close to that person. As long as I’m in a clear state of mind, these telepathic moments keep coming to me.

These were the initial changes, of course. As the years pass on, there has been a lot more that’s shifted in my life!
Essentially, my Spiritual Awakening has opened the gates of communication with the Universe. And that’s why I like to say “the Universe talks to me, and I’d be a fool not to listen”.
I’ve touched very briefly on a lot of things above, and there’s yet a lot more to come. It’s been four years and I’m still peeling layers, and finding newer insights in this journey.

I didn’t know I needed one until I just came across your posts of quorum but I was very drawn to contact you. Do you mentiroeople through awakening at all? I have been having a pretty terrifying ride of it all so far and I read that this could mean it’s a kundalini awakening which may need handling differently?
Thanks for reaching out and sharing your experience. I do mentor people for exactly this purpose.
I would be happy to get on a call with you and see how we can work through this to help it less terrifying and more terrific for you. Please use the contact page to drop me a note and We’ll be able to extend this conversation over email. Talk to you soon! 💜
