For the most part we live in a culture that is spiritually disconnected.
Let’s be clear- we are all spiritual.
After all, we are all spirits in a human body, living a human existence. It’s just that a lot of us forget that and begin identifying with the physical form instead.
Denying our spiritual existence is the work of the ego but it is also important to remember that the ego has its place and its benefits too.
We are all here on our own journey and really it is not up for us to criticize or look down upon where other people stand.
In fact, being truly conscious or spiritual allows us to understand that everyone is different and should be respected for their differences without judgement.
Regardless of where you feel you stand on the spiritual spectrum, we all get caught up in a disconnect at times- it’s normal, it’s natural it happens.
Sometimes we notice and can quickly readjust, and other times we need a gentle nudge to bring our awareness back to the truth.
Here are 5 top signs you may be experiencing a Spiritual disconnect and what you can do to fix it:
1.) You Feel the Need to Lie
No matter what situation you are in or how bad the events are, lying is a sure sign of spiritual disconnect. This is because lying is essentially avoiding your truth and the truth of who you are. If you ever feel the need to hide your truth, step back and ask yourself- why?
Why are you ashamed of yourself or your behaviour? If there is something that you have done that you feel guilty about, own it, honour it and stand up for yourself.
2.) You Have an Unhealthy Relationship with Food
We need food to survive and for nutrition but if you find yourself constantly over-eating or under-eating it could be a sign of a greater disconnect between your mind, body and soul.
Food is a pleasure and a necessity and if you are constantly feeling guilty about everything your put in your mouth, you are also energetically holding that vibration through your entire body as well.
Food seems to be a huge emotional draw for many people, so stand back and reflect on your relationship towards food and ways you can make peace with all that you eat.
3.) You Struggle with Being Alone
Most spiritual seekers know that you are never truly alone. Most spiritual seekers also know that there is a difference between being lonely and being alone.
A fear of being alone can manifest as being overly co-dependent, where you feel that you constantly need some around for support, comfort and reassurance. This usually manifests in relationships and can cause attachment, neediness and jealousy.
Co-dependency also creates a disconnect between your true essence and your true self- how can you possibly know what you want and who you are if you are constantly distracting yourself with the presence of others?
If you feel like you are in this headspace, take some time to be on your own and truly ask yourself- what are you really afraid of?
4.) You Are Not Open to Receiving
If someone pays you a compliment and you deflect it, if someone offers you money or a gift in exchange for your services or time and you refuse it, or if you have a hard time being intimate with people, then chances are you are not aligned with your spiritual being.
The very nature of our spiritual beings is to give and to receive. Most of us are very good with the giving part, but when it comes to receiving we can close ourselves down out of fear of not being worthy enough.
Receiving is not just about material possessions, it is also about allowing other souls and energy into your life and space. This includes intimate relationships and even the Divine energy of the Universe.
If you find yourself closed off to receiving, focus on creating space to receive and letting go of self limiting thoughts and beliefs.
5.) You Fear ‘Not Enough’
Not enough money, not enough time, not enough love, not being good enough….whatever ‘not enough’ fear you have is definitely causing a spiritual disconnect because the bottom line is- we are always enough.
We are always enough and the more you bring that understanding into your life, the less fear you will have around money or your worthiness.
Life is not a competition, there is no amount of “stuff” that we can acquire that will help us to win any race or come out on top.
We truly have everything we need right now to lead the perfect life for us. Sure, we can always make changes but it starts with understanding that we are already enough and paying gratitude for all that we have.
There are many other signs of spiritual disconnect, but these five highlight the main ones that most of us will encounter from time to time.
