Spiritual Awakening Kicking Your Ass? Try These 7 Things
A spiritual awakening can be a profound and transformative experience, but it is not without its difficulties. I know from both personal experiences as well as helping silver people over the years just how hard this process can be.
Lots of times, when people are in the earliest stages of their spiritual awakening, it can be really disorienting... even dark at times. I remember going through a period where I was just sort of shocked at humanity, and I didn't feel like I could connect to anyone because of it.
Here are some common challenges that people may face as they go through this process:
Disorientation and confusion: The awakening process can be disorienting, as it often involves a shift in perspective and a re-evaluation of one's beliefs and values. This can lead to feelings of confusion and uncertainty and a sense of being lost or disconnected from the world.
Fear and resistance: Awakening can also evoke feelings of fear and resistance, as it may involve letting go of familiar patterns and ways of being. This can be especially challenging if one's identity is closely tied to these patterns, and letting go of them feels like a loss of self.
Emotional upheaval: Awakening can also trigger intense emotional reactions, such as feelings of sadness, anger, and frustration. This is because the process often involves facing and releasing long-held feelings and traumas that have been suppressed or denied.
Physical symptoms: Some people may also experience physical symptoms during an awakening, such as fatigue, headaches, and changes in appetite or sleep patterns. These symptoms can result from the body's adjustment to the changes happening on a deeper level.
Social isolation: The awakening process can also lead to feelings of isolation and disconnection from others. This is because the awakened person may see the world differently than those around them and may have difficulty relating to others who have not had similar experiences.
Difficulty in integrating the experience: Some people may have difficulty integrating the spiritual experience into their everyday lives. They may struggle to balance the new perspective and understanding gained from the experience and the practical realities of living in the world.
It is important to note that these difficulties are not unique to spiritual awakening, and everyone's experience will be different. However, it is essential to be aware of these potential difficulties so that you can prepare for them and seek support if needed. It's kinda like reading the back of a bottle of
Remember that the process of spiritual awakening is a journey and that each step of the way is an opportunity for growth and transformation.
Additionally, it is important to find a spiritual teacher or a community of people who have gone through similar experiences, to help guide you through the process. They can provide valuable support and guidance and help you navigate the difficulties that may arise.
By being aware of the common challenges that may arise and seeking support when needed, we can navigate these difficulties and continue on the journey of spiritual growth and transformation. Here are a few things I know will help you. I'm pretty sure that you have heard at least one or two of them (I know i did). Even if you think you can't meditate or that you've already tried these things in the past and they didn't work as expected, just give it another go. At worst, you lose a bit of time, at best, you find a new way to process life through your new awareness.
Journaling: Keeping a journal is a great way to process and understand the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that come with a spiritual awakening. Writing down your experiences can help you make sense of them and can also serve as a valuable reference for later on.
Meditating: Meditation is a powerful tool for connecting with the present moment and connecting with your higher self. It can help you release stress, anxiety and negative thoughts and can also help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your spiritual journey.
Connecting with nature: Nature has a powerful way of grounding us and reminding us of our connection to the earth. Spending time outdoors, whether it be hiking, gardening, or simply sitting in a park, can help you feel more connected to the natural world and to your own spiritual path.
Practicing gratitude: Being grateful for the things in your life can help you cultivate a positive attitude and shift your focus away from negative thoughts. This can be done through journaling, meditation, or simply by taking a moment each day to reflect on the things in your life that you are grateful for.
Reading spiritual texts: Reading spiritual texts can provide valuable insights and guidance for your spiritual journey. These texts can range from ancient spiritual texts like the Bhagavad Gita or the Tao Te Ching to modern spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle or Wayne Dyer.
Engaging in spiritual practices: Engaging in spiritual practices such as yoga, tai chi, or chanting can help you connect with your spiritual self and deepen your understanding of your spiritual path.
Surrounding yourself with supportive people: Surrounding yourself with supportive friends and family can help you through the challenging times that come with a spiritual awakening. They can provide a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a sense of community.
A spiritual awakening can be a transformative and profound experience, but it can also be difficult and challenging. By journaling, meditating, connecting with nature, practicing gratitude, reading spiritual texts, engaging in spiritual practices, and surrounding yourself with supportive people, you can navigate this journey and emerge stronger, more connected, and more enlightened.
