Have you ever wondered what spiritual awakening mean? And do you think you are or have gone through an awakening process?
So firstly; how can spiritual awakening be described.. well, I would describe it as a call to higher consciousness and a deeper mental awareness. It is a process that brings about personal transformation and a shift in one's world view.
Going through a spiritual awakening can be one of the most confusing, lonely, scary but also a very beautiful experience in life.
So what causes a spiritual awakening?
For many it's brought on by a life changing event. such as a traumatic experience that has a huge impact on our physical and emotional wellbeing. This event is often followed by a long period of healing. It could be from example a traumatic experience such as significant surgery, surviving an accident or serious abuse. It could be brought on by major life changing events that has the potential to change the entire course of your life such as divorce, death of aloved one, a "plandemic" or a serious illness.
It can also be brought on by a Near Death Experience. Experiencing such a profound event can transforms one's outlook on life. It can be brought on by what we know as the an existential crisis - also known as the Dark Night of the soul. During an existential crisis, an individual begins to question the meaning and purpose of life.
We can also go through a natural awakening This is an involuntary process of awakening. It takes place after engaging in a practice that produces a shift in conscious awareness.
Practices that can activate a greater conscious awareness are:
Mindfulness, Meditation, Yoga, Connecting with nature or animals for example
So, Spiritual Awakening is different for everyone. Everyone's experience is unique although and what you may experience might be something like this..
You might start to feel disconnected from the world. You may develop an awareness of your ego and that it is separate from yourself and acknowledge that there is greater energy at work within this universe - something is larger than yourself.
I'd love to hear if you have or are going through a Spiritual Awakening and what you are experiencing. Please comment below.
