Throughout our lives we become more and more conscious of our physical body; learning where it thrives and where it needs care. However for most people they are unaware they also have a non-physical body known as the energy or light body.
This non-physical body is made up of several different elements including our aura, chakra system and so on. When we move our awareness beyond just the physical body through meditation, mindfulness, lucid dreaming etc. we become very aware of this non-physical body.
Many experience light body activation symptoms without realizing that is what they are. They might get the sense that something is up with their physical body, perhaps a health issue, when it is in fact the non-physical body coming online.
In this post I am going to go over a few of the most common signs that your light body is active and how to further tune into and balance this new form of awareness.
Signs Your Light Body is Active
There are many ways we can become aware that our non-physical body is coming online. These are a few of the most common and the ones that I have experience with, your experience may vary.
Feeling confused or spacey
The first sign that your light body is coming online is that you are feeling out of it. You walk around feeling like you’re in a dream and yet you’re one hundred percent in physical reality. You may lose track of the days or what time it is. Things around you are beginning to feel less real.
This is also a common sign of spiritual awakening more broadly. When our light body becomes active and we start to connect to the non-physical aspect of ourselves which is beyond linear time and space – it makes sense that are perception of physical reality will also shift.
Another common sign of light body activation is feeling vibrations/tingling/energy, usually during and after meditation. When we meditate we place our awareness beyond the physical body and tune into the awareness behind our physicality.
In doing this we become aware of our energy body, even if you do not realize this is what’s happening (if you don’t have the language for it), and can instead chalk the experience up to feeling under the weather.
Hearing high pitched frequencies
Have you ever meditated and started hearing a distinct high pitched buzzing sound in your ears? Something that had no physical cause? This high pitched frequency is different to the ringing that may come after listening to loud music, or due to tinnitus or an ear infection. Instead this is our non-physical sense of hearing known as clairaudience.
Clairaudience is a French words that translates as ‘”clear hearing” and describes the ability to hear beyond the physical. When we receive this high pitched buzzing usually after meditation, this is likely a sign from our higher selves or spirit guides.
Waking up at 3am
This one may sound weird but waking up between 3-5am can be a strong sign that your light body is activating. It is often during these hours after our first sleep cycles that our light body becomes activate and most apparent to our conscious awareness.
These act as literal spiritual wake up calls, as if your light body is waking up from its own sleep. It is during this time where you are likely to be downloading information you’ve received during your dreams. So before going back to sleep take a few moments to see what insights come to you, and promptly write them down.
Increased synchronicity & intuition
Another common symptom is an increase in synchronicity: this is where a sequence of random events occur that on the surface have no causal relationship but appear to have a meaningful connection.
One of the most common types of synchronicity we experience is constantly seeing the numbers 111 on the clock, in receipts, license plates and so on. This is one of the easiest ways the universe can start communicating with us.
As you tune into your non-physical body and the senses that come along with it, your intuition will become stronger and clearer. You will get the sense that you are being guided by something higher than your self.
Many of our dreams take place in an out of body state which is connected to the activity of our light body. When the light body becomes active you may notice an uptick in the amount of dreams you remember and how vivid they are.
It’s common to experience dreams that are as vivid as waking life and lucid dreams that are rich with detail. You may wake up in the middle of the night due to the vivid and emotionally charged content.
Spontaneous out of body experiences
Leading on from vivid dreams you may have out of body experiences. When your light body becomes active you may experience spontaneous out of body experiences: the experience of perceiving yourself from outside of your physical body.
When we astral project whether consciously or unconsciously what we are doing is transferring our conscious awareness from our physical body to our non-physical body; in this way we are not actually ‘exiting’ our body at all but placing our focus elsewhere. The physical body is not left completely vacant as is often described.
Dealing With Light Body Activation Symptoms
During light body activation it is imperative that you stay consistent with your spiritual practice, keep a record of your experiences (for future reference) and most importantly stay grounded.
Our light body activates as a result of us raising our vibration and keeping it consistently high. Therefore we have to ground this energy to stay balanced and make sense of what we are experiencing.
Grounding can be done by walking barefoot or spending time in nature, recording your experiences with pen and paper, tending to your physical responsibilities, and taking good care of your physical body and health.
Although light body activation symptoms can often be confused with physical health issues this doesn’t mean we should ignore our physical health. Take notice of any aches and pains that come to your awareness during this time.
Typically activating our light body means becoming more aware of our physical body and the things we’ve ignored about it. You may notice tension in parts of your body that you didn’t before, this will give you the chance to take better care of these areas.
