Are you having a spiritual awakening?
The world is changing rapidly and we are all being called to awaken to our true power. We have the choice of either resisting or embracing this change, but it can be hard to know-how.
Many people try to resist these changes, which causes them stress and anxiety because they don’t understand what’s happening. This makes a lot of people feel lost and confused about their purpose in life.
The answer lies within us if we can just learn how to quiet the mind so that we can hear the answers from within ourselves. This is where meditation comes into play as one of the most effective ways for us to connect with our higher self and access inner wisdom.
Meditation helps us achieve a state of relaxation while also helping us focus at the same time which allows for heightened awareness, creativity, and intuition throughout each day by connecting with our soul (higher self). This article will help you understand what you are feeling and how to recognize some of the symptoms.
What is a Spiritual Awakening?
Spiritual awakening is a sudden and profound personal experience that transforms the individual’s sense of self, their way of understanding reality.
This can be an amazing, life-changing event for some people but it can also come with significant challenges. The symptoms vary from person to person as well as what they experienced during the spiritual awakening. I will give examples of both in this blog post.
**Side note: The symptoms can vary in severity and duration from person to person. For some people, the effects are mild while others experience changes that are so severe they have to completely heal before moving on with their lives.
Some of the experiences can be quite uncomfortable and difficult for people to comprehend which is why it’s important to find a way to explain what you are feeling to give your family and friends a better understanding.
Sometimes people who go through an awakening need time alone to process their experiences, so if you find yourself needing space from others, just know that this is perfectly normal during this transformational period of growth.
A Spiritual Awakening Experience aka Symptoms:
A spiritual awakening experience can be very different for everyone. It is a unique personal journey and there is a wide range of experiences associated with it.
Some people have profound spiritual awakenings which open them up to new worlds while others may experience changes that are gentle and gradual over time, giving them more subtle but lasting effects (these can also still be just as life-changing – it depends on the individual).
For some people, the experience is so dramatic that they want desperately to tell other people what they saw or experienced in such great detail that most find themselves thinking they are crazy. Many feel like they need to speak out because it is so powerful – yet know that if they should choose to share their story with others; many people will not believe them.
Some Common Symptoms Associated with Spiritual Awakening:
- – Fear, Panic Attacks/Anxiety
- – Disconnection (feeling like you don’t belong or that you are out of place)
- -Overwhelming feelings of Joy and Happiness
- – Mind-Blowing Paranormal Experiences such as: seeing energy, hearing voices, having conversations on a higher level of consciousness, etc.
This type of activity has been described by many of my clients who have undergone a spiritual awakening experience.
Some prefer to call these experiences an awakened state while others will say they had an enlightenment experience. There really is no right or wrong way to identify this phenomenon because it is unique for everyone.
I personally prefer calling this practice ‘awakening’ because that’s what it is – a process of awakening to higher states of consciousness. In any case, I hope these examples give you some ideas for how you can explain your experiences to others, and understand what you are feeling as best as possible.
It’s important to find a way to communicate with friends and family in order that they can better support you during this beautiful but challenging time in life!
What can Trigger a Spiritual Awakening:
There are many things that can trigger a spiritual awakening for people. Here is just a partial list:
- -Sudden and/or Uncontrollable Emotional/Physical Pain.
- – A Near-Death Experience (NDE)
- – Experiencing extreme trauma such as rape, incest, domestic violence, etc.
- – Having an out of body experience (OBE) – which can be caused by drugs, sleep paralysis, or any experience that leaves one feeling as though they are stuck between worlds
- – A spiritual initiation such as baptism (especially at a young age), shamanic initiation, or the sudden death of someone close to you.
Becoming a parent can also trigger an awakening in some people. These types of experiences have been described as being ‘born again’ by some who undergo them.
Whatever the reason for the initial event, growing up with certain religious beliefs and a lack of knowledge about how things really work in this world will often result in conflicts within our unconscious minds and emotions.
Most religions don’t teach us directly about mind control techniques used by dark entities on earth nor do they teach us about the real origins of our planet and how we came to be here.
This is part of what gives way to false beliefs, lack of spiritual understanding, and a sense of disconnection from ourselves and others which can lead to psychic attack, mental illness, or any other symptoms that are commonly associated with this process.
These types of psychic attacks try to control our minds by feeding off our negative emotions such as fear, anger, anxiety, sadness, etc – producing more negative thoughts every time they are triggered until it causes you to feel a dark cloud hanging over your head all day long without notice.
People often feel like they have a limited grasp on their own individuality these days, and many are indeed being manipulated into behaving in ways that they would not normally behave if left to make their own decisions. (Some call this dark night of the soul).
Yet while this kind of manipulation is very real – it is important to know that these dark entities can only control us if we let them. There will be some who say “why should I fight this when God has already chosen my path for me?” And I would say to them that God does not choose your path for you.
It is our own decisions and free will (free will) that makes us who we are, so if you have a spirit of courage then fight this! If not for yourself, then do it for the sake of others who cannot.
Our souls are eternal, and we have all come here with a divine plan that can only be fulfilled with love and courage to face our fears.
How Did This Happen?
We got here through a process of reincarnation which is meant to help us evolve spiritually by learning from the lessons brought about by previous life experiences.
If you look at the world around us there is nothing here that was not made by conscious beings. It’s all an illusion, so when you see your body, our planet, and everything else in this world – know that it is the creation of consciousness.
There are no accidents here because this is all a giant learning experience for us. We came here with a purpose – to learn and evolve into higher beings of love.
What Practices Can help with a Spiritual Awakening?
There are several practices that can aid in a spiritual awakening. While it is helpful to learn these practices, we must also remember that they cannot do all of the work for us. It is only through self-inquiry and self-awareness that we will achieve spiritual breakthroughs and spiritual awakenings. The following list includes some traditional meditation techniques that can help:
- -Focused Breathing: This practice is simple, yet very effective. When we focus on our breath, it helps us to calm the mind and focus on the present moment.
- -Mantra Meditation: Repeating a mantra (a word or phrase that has spiritual significance) can help to quiet the mind and open the heart.
- Visualization: This technique entails visualizing oneself in a tranquil and restful environment. This has been shown to be beneficial in lowering stress and tension.
- -Heart-Centered Meditation: In this practice, we focus on the area of the chest and send compassion and love to ourselves and others.
- -Mindfulness Meditation: In this practice, we focus on the present moment and observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment.
- -Qi Gong: This practice combines meditation and physical movement, and helps to improve the energy flow throughout the body.
While these are some of the most common meditation techniques, there are many other practices that can help you through the spiritual awakening:
- Spending Time Outside
- Like-minded Communities
- Practice Appreciation and Gratitude
- Sun Gazing
and many more!
Ways Spiritual Awakening Can Influence Your Life…
Awakening to reality is difficult to talk about. One way to understand it is that you see yourself as a person and everyone else as well.
This can be hard if you do not know what this means. There is a shift in your perception from seeing yourself as an individual to seeing the whole world or understanding that everything and everyone are one thing.
This can be a difficult change because it changes the way you see yourself and the world around you. It is almost impossible to go back to the way you saw things before.
Once you have had this type of spiritual awakening, your life is never the same again. You will see things in a different light and be more aware of the spiritual side of life.
Your Awakening Will Affect The Way You See Your World…
You will begin to see a world that is interconnected and everything has a deeper meaning behind it. You will start to understand the roles that other people have played in your life or why they were brought into your life. This can be hard to do but opens up a new sense of reality that is not close to the way you see things before.
Spiritual awakening is almost like seeing your life for what it really is. You will start to understand how karma factors in. Your actions have consequences in your future, so being good to others and being true to yourself will help you move forward with both.
We aren’t experiencing ourselves as a separate someone or entity. It’s more of a feeling of the One recognizing itself, or Spirit recognizing itself. We are no longer perceiving our experiences through the identity of ego.
When you finally understand the spiritual awakening process, your life will be much clearer. You’ll see everything as it really is and not just how it appears to be on the surface.
Your actions have consequences in your future so being good to others and being true to yourself will help you move forward with both!
