Sometimes life can be unpredictable, full of highs and lows and at times can have an amazing turn of events. During our lifetime we can experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. And we will learn something every time.
As we go through the journey we call life, we will meet all kinds of obstacles and opportunities – each one necessary for our growth and progress as we become the best versions of ourselves.
If you find yourself currently experiencing these 11 things, it means that a major life shift is ahead of you.
1. Your Emotions Are Heightened and Intense
When you are going through a major life shift it is normal that your emotions will go through a shift as well. Your emotional energy will change drastically, so you may experience intense mood swings and heightened emotions. Bear in mind that these sudden and intense feelings may be those that you have tried to bottle up for quite some time and the only way that you can let them go is by experiencing them fully.
2. You Begin to Notice Coincidences All Around You
Do you suddenly start to see repeating patterns or coincidences in your life? These coincidences may come in any form, including license plates, phone numbers, symbols, or addresses. Do you see the number 7 everywhere you look? Well, it might be a sign of your spirit guides that your life is going to change drastically, and, in this way, they are connecting with you and sending you messages.
3. You Suddenly Feel the Need to Solve Problems from Your Past
If you have some unresolved things left in the past, suddenly you may start feeling pressured and determined to solve them. Maybe nothing is changed, and nobody is pressuring you, but you still feel an internal pressure that you must do something about it. Best is to follow your instincts, that you can finally move on peacefully, and leave past issues in the past.
4. You Learn to Enjoy Your Alone Time More Than Ever Before
Maybe you have been the ‘social butterfly’ before this shift, or you valued your alone time highly. Either way, now you notice that you need even more alone time than before to recharge and escape from the rest of the world. Your alone time has become crucial for your well-being. And not only do you crave for a time alone, but you are also enjoying it completely and it fits you perfectly.
5. Your Life Feels Almost Unreal
As you live your life and go through your days, you get a strange feeling as ‘you’ are not ‘you’ anymore. It is like you are merely a spectator of your own life. Like you are an outsider to your own story. As if you are standing there, looking at your life like it is lived by someone else. This bizarre feeling is completely normal when your life is about to turn upsidedown.
6. Your Relationships Start to Shift, Change, Or (In Some Cases) End
Every person in your life is there for a reason. So, it is normal that you will lose some people along the way. Especially if you are experiencing a major life change. This results in a change to the people in your surroundings. You might notice that you have lost some close friends, or a romantic relationship has come to its end, but don’t worry. All this is necessary for you to meet new people that will serve a better purpose in the new phase of your life.
7. You Take the Necessary Steps to Let Go of Harmful Habits
We all have some harmful habits that we know we should let go of, but we get so comfortable at times that we don’t get the push that is necessary for us to make a change. So, if you find yourself suddenly inspired to eat healthily and quit smoking, or spending more time in the gym, you have already realized that these changes are necessary for the next phase of your life.
8. You Notice a Significant Change in Your Sleeping Patterns
A change in your sleeping pattern might vary from minor sleep disturbances like experiencing some difficulties to fall asleep or wake up in the morning to more serious conditions, such as insomnia. Changes in your energy may also take place, and it can either trigger insomnia or it can make you feel exhausted and in a need of more sleep than usual.
9. You Feel as Though Something is ‘Off’ or As You Are Out of Place
When the major shift in your life starts to take place, your perceptions might shift as well, and you may start thinking differently about the world around you. Even if you can’t identify the exact change that happened to you, you still feel that something is different. You look at people and things in a new way, with changed and improved beliefs and morals.
10. You Find That You Are More Passionate About Life Than Ever Before
Each has its own passions in life, something that motivates us and keeps our hearts beating. These are the hobbies and parts of our lives that make us happy. While experiencing a major life shift you will start experiencing more passion and happiness in your life. You will notice that all pieces of the puzzle are suddenly falling into place, leaving you happier and more fulfilled than before.
11. You Just “Know” That Something Big Is Coming
There is some anticipation or excitement that you feel and can’t seem to figure it out. Your gut feeling is telling you that something will happen, something big will soon come in your life. Even though you can’t explain it – you just ‘know’ it. Your intuition is very powerful – trust it!
