5 Signs You Are Going Through A Spiritual Awakening
Spiritual awakening is a term that is often used to describe a transformative process that occurs when an individual begins to experience a deeper sense of connection to the world around them. This connection can manifest in a variety of ways, such as a heightened sense of awareness, a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of all things, and an increased ability to access inner wisdom and guidance.
In my experience, I have seen that many different paths can lead to spiritual awakening, and the journey is often unique to each individual. Some people may experience a sudden and profound shift in consciousness, while others may go through a gradual process of transformation. A common thread that runs through all spiritual awakenings is a sense of connection to something greater than oneself. Another shared experience for those going through a spiritual awakening is the feeling that EVERYTHING has changed. I know that can be scary, worrisome or even disorienting for people and if you are experiencing those feelings, baby, you are NOT alone!
One of the most significant aspects of spiritual awakening is the realization that we are not separate from the world around us. This realization can lead to a profound sense of interconnectedness and an understanding that everything is linked and that we are all part of a larger whole. This understanding can inspire a sense of compassion and empathy, as we begin to see the world through a different lens and understand that our actions and choices can have a positive or negative impact on others. This powerful and sometimes sudden awareness can be very encouraging and make you feel eager to explore the depths of this connection.
Another aspect of spiritual awakening is the ability to access inner wisdom and guidance. Many people report feeling a sense of inner knowing or intuition that they had not previously been aware of. This inner guidance can provide a sense of direction and purpose and can help us navigate the challenges and obstacles that we may encounter on our journey through life. I call it the inner compass. The thing that often arrives as an urge or even a sense of knowing that you should go in one direction or another. I remember a time in my life when I felt like I had Jack Sparrow's confused compass... the needle spinning in every direction. But later, when I learned to listen to my inner knowing, finding the "right" direction for me became a lot easier and certainly more clear.
While spiritual awakening can be a profound and transformative experience, it is important to remember that it is also a process. It is not a destination that can be reached and then forgotten. Rather, it is a journey that requires ongoing work and commitment.
Here are some signs you are going through a Spiritual Awakening
Increased self-awareness: Often when you are going through a spiritual awakening you will notice a huge growth in your self-awareness. You start noticing the connectivity between not just people, but also events, and timing and your role in the interplay of those things. This can manifest in many ways, such as a heightened sense of intuition, a deeper understanding of one's own thoughts and feelings, or a greater ability to connect with the world around them. However, when self-awareness shows up, you will become more sensitive to the flow of things around you.
Changes in perception: Another common sign of a spiritual awakening is a shift in one's perception of reality. This can include experiencing the world in a more vivid or heightened way or feeling a sense of oneness with all things. This is probably one of the more bewildering experiences of spiritual growth. For some people it seems like the whole world has been "turned up" and everything feels more intense and vibrant. The richness of the world intensifies and for some, it can be a little overwhelming which can lead to some people needing to pull away from the outside world while they adjust to their enhanced awareness.
Letting go of old patterns: Another common sign of a spiritual awakening is the ability to let go of old patterns and habits that no longer serve you. This can include negative thought patterns, unhealthy relationships, or harmful behaviours. This can be hard - but not just for you. People in our lives get used to us being a certain way. They may even build expectations around who they think we should be. They get comfortable with their familiar version of you. When you start to change or evolve it can make these people feel uncertain and uncomfortable and sometimes this can lead to fights, misunderstandings and even breakups in friendships and romantic partnerships which of course is painful. However, I think we should each do our level best to navigate these changes with compassion for ourselves as well as those who are affected.
A deeper sense of connection: Many people who are going through a spiritual awakening report feeling a deeper sense of connection to the world around them. This can manifest as a sense of interconnectedness with all things, or a greater understanding of the interconnectedness of things. For me, this changed my perceptions of my place in the world. It was a lot to process when I understood that every single thing I could imagine is intrinsically linked to me and Ito it, it just sort of blew my mind. I mean if you consider that we are breathing the same air, simultaneously under the same moon, stars and sky that every single plant and animal exists under... it's pretty cool!
So my dear Mystic, if you are exploring the world around you in a new way because you have heard the spiritual alarm clock go off and you are awakening to a new world, allow yourself to go lightly. Be compassionate toward yourself and others... even if they may seem undeserving. Allow things to unfold with a mindset of curiosity and openness, but also remain discerning and even skeptical if need be.
Just do your best to remember that everyone's spiritual journey is unique, and these signs may manifest differently for different people. Additionally, it's possible to experience a spiritual awakening without encountering all of these signs or to undergo them in different ways. The most important thing is to be open to the possibility of growth and change and to trust your own inner guidance as you navigate your spiritual journey.
