Limerence and Spiritual Awakening

For many, their experience of limerence is the portal to a period of significant spiritual growth.

Many similarities exist between the symptoms of limerence and those of a  Kundalini awakening which is described as follows:

  • The intensity of the experience can consume our whole being
  • We can find it impossible to cope at an everyday level
  • Our inner world can take over and blur confusingly with the outer
  • We can have unusual physical pains and sensations and find it impossible to sleep
  • We can experience a roller-coaster of powerful emotions
  • There can be a sense of everything falling away, including our sense of self in an ego-death, albeit usually temporarily
  • There may be ego-inflation; for example, we may believe that we are the reincarnation of Jesus or Mary
  • Thinking can become confused as the rational mind desperately tries to make sense of what is going on, resulting in psychotic-type elements
  • Symbolism and mythological themes become very meaningful for us, for example, sacred union or marriage, the battle of good versus evil, etc
  • Meaningful coincidences, known as synchronicity, often become more frequent
  • We might see unusual things, such as past-life flashbacks in our mind’s eye or spirits
  • We can experience sudden and strong energies, either as our own life force energy is spontaneously released or with the powerful inrush of spiritual energies
