I'd be cautious as to what I ascribe inner symptoms to in the outer world. We tend to want to find something outside of ourselves that gives us an excuse to feel the way we do internally and then try to find something to either assuage or fix the issue. There are so many belief systems surrounding the 'ascension' that is makes one rather dizzy and disoriented just trying to keep up with them. Make is simple. The sensations that we're presented with are part of our own awakening and growth toward self-actualization and self-realization. The two are inextricable in the evolution of self/Self.
Self-actualization is about finding 'perfect' form, fit and function in the world. Self-realization is about finding that same form, fit and function within. Sure, there are practitioners who can assist in developing your poignant and profound questions opportunities. The answers are always found within, so they say, and it is true. The process of understanding and transforming oneself accordingly is still a pseudo-science at best, though there are references in quantum physics and spiritual practices that mirror each other. Some of the shifts can be pretty intense, like a wave of energy that completely wipes you out and even causes a collapse of the physical body for a short time. I've had that happen and gave me a new view on 'spooky action at a distance.'
Everyone is different, though, and each require certain aspects of consciousness to emote and evolve through the process. It seems the most appropriate 'place' to be in emotionally is fearlessness, though that doesn't mean to throw caution to the wind. It means operating in the faith, love and trust that emotes from the core of our center, the BEing. Practicing inner methodologies will often bring outer validation, like synchronicities galore, and as one experiences them as evidence to requests for connections, people or understanding... the trust grows. Ultimately, asking for help from within with sincerity will trigger the outer world to respond. Just be patient and persevere. :)
