Am I Crazy Or Just Spiritual?

A few months ago Cyhndi Mora, one of my best friends, was inspired to start a Facebook group for those who are coming into their spiritual awareness.  The inspiration seeded from this fantastic article about the difference between the way a Shaman views awakenings, versus a viewpoint of seeing mental or physical illness, from the same set of symptoms.

Cyhndi invited several seekers to take part in the group new group, called Am I Crazy Or Just Spiritual, to offer guidance and support for what I’m calling shakti unwinding.  I am honored to be a part of the group. If you would like to join us, you can request to join the group.  Whether you have guidance to offer, are interested in forming friendships with like-minded people, would like to share your experience, or all of the above, we welcome you with open arms.

I had an experience I would like to share.  It lasted for months.  If anyone was looking close enough, they might have been worried.  The fact was, though I ate surprisingly little food, I did not lose weight.  At the time, I was meditating for an average of three hours every day.

I wasn’t anorexic.  I was being fed by my meditations.

How does someone with a degree in nutrition allow themselves not to eat regularly?  Well, for one, I wasn’t hungry.  Isn’t that one of the definitions of anorexia, you ask?  Normally, I would say yes, it is.

Add to this the fact that I was a newly single mom.  My hypoglycemic tendencies should have started rearing their heads, bringing headaches, irritability, fatigue, and nausea.

I experienced zero symptoms of hypoglycemia.  In fact, I felt fantastic.

My overall health improved.

In time, my eating habits returned to normal.  I was meditating less.  I think those two factors are related.

These days I meditate for around a half an hour a day.  Unless I’m shifting, then I will spend at least an hour aligning myself through meditation and self-Reiki treatments.  My weight is normal for my body frame.  I eat more than people think I do based on my appearance.  My hypoglycemic tendencies are under control through a balanced diet.  I still feel great.

I wonder if I will ever meditate for three hours a day again, and if I do, will I be fed by spirit again?

There is always mystery in the mystery.  I like it that way.

Do you?

What do you think?  Have you experienced an awakening that symptomatically seemed like an illness?
