Spiritual AwakeningsMar 23, 2022
If you wonder if you’re having a spiritual awakening, then you probably are.
A spiritual awakening is when something arises within you that is deeper than who you thought you were. It is a natural evolutionary process of the mind, heart, or soul, which involves the process of shedding the old self and experiencing an inner rebirth. It is about reaching new heights and transcending old limiting habits, beliefs, mindsets, and ways of being. It’s about awakening the sage within in order to tune into your soul’s wisdom and use it as a guiding force in everything you do.
Although spiritual awakenings can be a beautiful thing, it’s not always easy to awaken to new concepts about reality and life, especially if you feel alone in your spiritual journey. Yes, it brings countless opportunities for personal growth, but it can also get quite overwhelming! Spiritual awakenings can feel incredibly rocky and confusing and are not usually pleasant. Often, they feel full of confusion, frustration, anger, sadness, grief, or being “out of place.”
One thing is certain, you notice a shift taking place mentally, physically, and spiritually. The mind begins to experience epiphanies or sudden realizations. This deep understanding feels like a big “Ah Ha” moment or holds a flash of ‘enlightened’ perspective that can help you wrap your mind around the bigger picture and understand life a little better. Once you gain a better understanding, you start releasing and moving past old limiting and toxic patterns. And, you begin developing qualities such as self-acceptance, empowerment, and understanding which motivates and inspires profound changes in your life.
The physical body experiences shifts as well, such as when life force energy (commonly referred to as qi, prana, or kundalini energy) is awakened. Ancient practices such as yoga, meditation, tantra, and tai chi, help to awaken this energy, but sometimes life force energy awakens spontaneously. This sudden activation is called a Kundalini Awakening and can be quite seductive in nature.
An awakening of spiritual energy can feel mild all the way to extreme. Common signs of an awakening of spiritual energy involve feelings of enhanced vitality and energy on the physical level, energy rushes, tingling and electrical feelings throughout the body, changes in sexual libido, sharpened awareness, and feelings of cosmic interconnectedness. Negative symptoms can also arise such as mood swings, mania, hypersensitivity, insomnia, seizures, loss of appetite or overeating, extreme and scary altered states of consciousness – just to name a few.
Awakenings on a spiritual and soul level are experienced as a deepening with one’s Soul. For example, shifting from the ego-perspective to a universal-perspective. This could involve moments where you’ve felt deeply aligned with your life purpose, spirit guides, or higher self and thereby understanding and beginning to experience oneself as eternal and limitless.
In The Beginning
Regardless of how your experience is showing up, a spiritual awakening can be an intense time of personal growth. But despite how difficult it may feel, you’re not going crazy; you’re evolving. The best thing you can do is support yourself with kindness, learn how to use your intuition to navigate, and connect with likeminded people.
During the early stages of the awakening process, you will begin to question everything in your outer world, nothing seems to fit with your mindset, beliefs, or true desires anymore. You begin to hear a silent calling deep within that beckons you to stop and listen. Whether you do or not, is your choice.
Amazingly, we are living in the most incredible time in history for sharing knowledge, making connections with others, and awakening deep within. The world is waking up and more and more people are becoming enlightened and open to possibilities. It’s a beautiful thing.
We all need to work together to support each other emotionally and spiritually as we become more conscious, enlightened, and spiritually aware. Honestly, I believe it is an exquisitely multi-layered concept and experience that you don’t want to miss out on and the “soul” reason you are here in the first place!
