Nobody wants to get divorced, that’s no secret.
You may be surprised to find out that there are a number of signs that your relationship is beginning to unravel due to a spiritual awakening.
Here are 12 of them!
12 signs of a spiritual awakening causing divorce
1) You’re choosing your own goals more than ever before
One of the most important things you can do in order to prevent divorce is to make sure that your goals are aligned with each other.
If you’re choosing your own goals instead of those set by your spouse and you together because of your spiritual awakening, you might be moving closer to a divorce.
Don’t get me wrong, you should definitely have your own goals!
But completely neglecting your joint goals can lead to the other person seeing this as an indication that the relationship is over and that they should move on to someone else.
2) You’re feeling more connected to nature and the universe than ever before and neglect your partner
One of the most common causes of divorce is neglecting your partner.
You see, as a result of a spiritual awakening, you’re likely feeling more connected to nature and the universe than ever before.
This awakened state can be promoted by various means, such as
- reading about nature and its laws
- practicing yoga or meditation
- listening to nature sounds
- spending time outside in fresh air
- talking with animals or plants (even if you don’t feed them)
- participating in any type of physical activity that brings peace and calm
As nice and beneficial as these things are, they can cause you to neglect your partner and make decisions that don’t benefit them.
If you neglect your partner, it will cause them to become frustrated and eventually leave you. In the long run, this is not a healthy relationship for either of you.
3) You’re questioning your relationship with your spouse or significant other
As a result of your spiritual awakening, you might start questioning your relationship with your spouse.
If your spiritual awakening has led you to question your relationship with your spouse, that might be the first step in starting a process of repairing and healing that relationship.
Now: There are many different ways for people to start working on their relationships, but it is important that everyone starts somewhere.
First of all, if you’re questioning whether or not your relationship is worth continuing, it’s important to talk to your partner about it.
They may have some good ideas about how to improve your relationship without breaking up.
4) You’re looking for a new place to live and a new way of life
Your relationship may be unraveling because you’re looking for a new place to live and a new way of life.
Spiritual awakenings can cause you to crave a complete change in your life.
With the help of a spiritual awakening, you may find that your old patterns and ways of thinking no longer work for you.
You might also be able to see new possibilities in your life and experience a sense of joyous freedom.
If these changes are sudden, they can be difficult to handle; however, if they happen over time as part of an ongoing process, they can provide incredible opportunities for growth and change.
Maybe you’re looking for a different type of relationship or a different way of life.
In my own experience, if this is true, it may be time to end your relationship.
5) You’re feeling restless and anxiety-filled
One of the first things you may notice in your relationship is an increased sense of anxiety and restlessness.
You may feel like you can’t do anything right, or that your partner is always trying to control everything.
The good news is that this is a natural response to a spiritual awakening.
In fact, it’s normal to feel these same feelings during a spiritual awakening. However, it’s important not to confuse this feeling with the real thing.
It’s important to remember that the feelings you’re experiencing are not necessarily the reality.
The real awakening is a state of mind, and it’s what happens to your mind that leads to a change in your relationship.
When we’re in the midst of an awakening, our reality can get a bit harder than usual.
It can be hard to distinguish between what is real and what we are feeling. But it’s important that we don’t give up on things just because they feel difficult.
6) You want to discover your true spiritual journey
After you experience a spiritual awakening, it’s only natural to become more curious. It’s natural to want to discover your true spiritual journey.
However, if your purpose is misunderstood and you don’t benefit from your spouse’s support, it can be difficult to find the needed empowerment.
The solution? It’s simple, really. Answer this:
When it comes to your personal spiritual journey, which toxic habits have you unknowingly picked up?
Is it the need to be positive all the time? Is it a sense of superiority over those who lack spiritual awareness?
Even well-meaning gurus and experts can get it wrong.
You end up achieving the opposite of what you’re searching for. You do more to harm yourself than to heal.
You may even hurt those around you.
In this eye-opening video, the shaman Rudá Iandé explains how so many of us fall into the toxic spirituality trap. He himself went through a similar experience at the start of his journey.
But with over 30 years of experience in the spiritual field, Rudá now confronts and tackles popular toxic traits and habits.
As he mentions in the video, spirituality should be about empowering yourself. Not suppressing emotions, not judging others, but forming a pure connection with who you are at your core.

Even if you’re well into your spiritual journey, it’s never too late to unlearn the myths you’ve bought for truth!
7) Your relationship with your spouse is not as satisfying as you thought it would be either
When you go through a spiritual awakening, your spouse might not be as good of a partner as you thought they would be.
Even though your spouse is the person who you thought would help make you happy, this doesn’t mean that you will always be happy going forward.
This can happen in a variety of ways, and it could happen at any time.
If it does, it’s important to discuss these changes with your spouse and work through them as a couple.
You see, maybe they’re just trying to be supportive and don’t really know what to say.
Either way, don’t take their lack of support as a sign that your relationship is failing.
If your spouse does not provide the support you need, it’s important to reach out for help and talk to them.
You don’t have to break up with your spouse just yet, but it’s important to be honest about what’s going on.
8) You’re feeling overwhelmed by the world around you and how it’s affecting your life both professionally and personally
This is a common sign that your relationship is unraveling.
Many people find it difficult to cope with the world and its many pressures.
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s natural to seek comfort in someone else.
This can be an easy path to follow if your relationship is healthy and supportive, but it can become difficult when the relationship is unraveling.
Think about it: you may be feeling like you’re being pushed away or that your partner isn’t listening to you.
Or you may be feeling like you’re not good enough or like you’re not loved.
This can feel like you’re losing touch with who you are.
In either case, it isn’t a healthy sign for a relationship and if left unnoticed, can lead to divorce.
9) You want to focus only on yourself
When you’re embarking on a spiritual journey, it’s important to focus on your own well-being.
This means putting less focus on your relationship with the person you’re involved with.
If you’re trying to find ways to spiritually grow, you may be inadvertently neglecting your partner and the relationship.
It’s a lose-lose situation.
I’m not saying that you can’t focus on yourself while in a relationship, that’s actually not true at all.
However, when you go through a spiritual awakening, you tend to be VERY focused on yourself.
The predominant feeling then is one of deep peace and satisfaction with what has happened.
This shift often leads to a change in your outlook on life and yourself, which can be very beneficial for both personal growth and general well-being.
That doesn’t sound bad, does it?
Well, the only problem is when you don’t want to focus on your partner at all anymore as a result.
This is a huge issue.
You’re not really giving your relationship the attention it needs.
In fact, you may begin to think of the person you’re involved with as an obstruction to your spiritual growth and well-being.
This is not healthy at all and can lead to resentment, anger, and even divorce.
10) Changes in your partner’s behavior
Another sign that your relationship is beginning to unravel due to spiritual awakening is when you begin to notice different patterns in your partner’s behavior.
For example, you may find that your partner is less interested in sex or becomes more distant.
This could mean that your relationship is beginning to unravel because one of you has begun to shift away from the traditional marriage vows.
If you’re noticing any of the following signs in your relationship, it may be time for a serious talk.
These changes could include:
1) Your partner is not living up to the traditional promises they made during the marriage ceremony
2) Your partner no longer seems interested in making love or spending time together
3) You feel like you’re not getting along as well as you used to
4) Your partner has stopped speaking to you regularly or has stopped responding at all
5) You are no longer able to make an honest effort at communicating with your partner
6) You feel like there’s a power difference between you and your partner
7) You’re noticeably less happy than when you were married before
But when it comes to relationships, you might be surprised to hear that there’s one very important connection you’ve probably been overlooking:
The relationship you have with yourself.
I learned about this from the shaman Rudá Iandê. In his incredible, free video on cultivating healthy relationships, he gives you the tools to plant yourself at the center of your world.
And once you start doing that, there’s no telling how much happiness and fulfillment you can find within yourself and with your relationships.
So what makes Rudá’s advice so life-changing?
Well, he uses techniques derived from ancient shamanic teachings, but he puts his own modern-day twist on them. He may be a shaman, but he’s experienced the same problems in love as you and I have.
And using this combination, he’s identified the areas where most of us go wrong in our relationships.
So if you’re tired of your relationships never working out, of feeling undervalued, unappreciated, or unloved, this free video will give you some amazing techniques to change your love life around.
Make the change today and cultivate the love and respect you know you deserve.
11) Your inner world is more important than your outer world
When you’re seeking to find a deeper connection with yourself, the first thing you do is look inside.
What are your thoughts and feelings? Are they positive or negative?
When you get caught up in your inner world, it can leave your partner feeling abandoned.
You may begin to feel like your partner isn’t as important to you as you are to yourself.
This is not a good thing.
You need to be careful when you are focusing on yourself and neglecting your partner.
You see, your partner needs more attention, not less.
You’re seeking peace on the inside, but then creating conflict in the outside world…
This is actually a big problem that can lead to divorce!
And it’s very common for those who have gotten divorced.
Your partner has a right to a happy relationship.
And think about it: you want them to be happy, too, right?
Well, when you’re too focused on your inner world, you’re not thinking about what’s best for your partner at all!
This is dangerous because it can lead to resentment and anger on both sides of the relationship.
12) Your marriage is not as fulfilling as you thought it would be
One of the main things that can cause divorce is when the couple begins to realize that their relationship is not as fulfilling as they thought it would be.
The spiritual awakenings are often more full-bodied and profound than what they had been precluded by feelings of dissatisfaction.
When this happens, it can be difficult to stay in the relationship.
How to save your marriage
Now: you might be wondering how to save your marriage.
If you’re not sure whether your relationship is spiraling out of control due to a spiritual awakening, it’s important to take some time for yourself.
The thing is, in order to save a relationship, it takes two people.
Both of you need to be willing to put in the necessary work to mend the marriage.
The first step is to get in touch with your feelings.
When you’re aware of how you’re feeling, you can better understand what is happening.
Then, you can take the time to analyze what’s going on in the relationship and make a plan for improvement.
However, if things are really going downhill and one or both partners are unhappy, it might be better to split ways.
A divorce can be very painful, but it is sometimes the only option.
It’s important to remember that you and your partner are both individuals in our own right.
And both of you deserve to be happy.
If a spiritual awakening changes one of you to the point of the relationship suffering, maybe you are better off separating.
Hopefully, by now you’ve got a better idea of how a spiritual awakening can lead to divorce.
