You may have heard of a spiritual awakening. You may have had one. You may have read the post title and thought exactly what it says. What the heck is that?! This post is going to talk you through a spiritual awakening so you can figure out if this is something you’ve had (clue: you probably have a good idea already), or if it’s something you’d like to have. Read on to find out more:
What Is A Spiritual Awakening?
A spiritual awakening is a huge change in your mindset. Some people may liken it to a total reality shift. You start seeing the world and the people around you in a totally different light. Many people feel like different people. You have different views, and an interest in different things. There’s no one way to set this off. Sometimes it just happens through years of trying, and sometimes it happens due to something huge happening in your life, such as a death or a break up. You may not feel totally enlightened or like you have it all worked out, but you’ll definitely feel in a better position than before. However, chances are, you will be faced with more challenges to help you develop further.
Signs You’ve Had A Spiritual Awakening
There are many different signs that could indicate a spiritual awakening. Here are just some of them:
- You feel like something has changed inside of you. You’ve felt a shift.
- You become aware of your negative stuff, both past and present. You want to change them.
- You have greater empathy for others, including animals.
- You want to help make the world better.
- You want more meaning in your life.
- You have the desire to reconnect with yourself, to be your authentic self, and realize your dreams.
- You notice an increase of synchronicities, for instance, 11:11 on the clock.
- You want less stuff. You want more experiences!
How To Have A Spiritual Awakening
There’s no guarantee that you can make yourself have a spiritual awakening. However, there are a few things you can do to give yourself more of a chance. People who meditate find it easier to do things that aid a spiritual awakening, such as quieting the mind, observing the thoughts, and becoming more aware of the authentic self. Exercise can help too, as it helps to give more energy and make you happier.
If you aim to become a better person, and take steps constantly to achieve this, you may find it easier. Stop bad habits that affect you and the people around you. There are many centres you can visit, and ways you can learn about them. Make sure you always aim to improve in one way or another. Look within and figure out what it is you really want to do with your life. Travel can be a big help too, and many people find that travel helps to open their eyes in terms of other cultures. Particularly places like Thailand and other places in South East Asia.
Bear in mind that the path to enlightenment/a spiritual awakening isn’t usually an easy one. You will have to be consistent. You might start when you’re 20, and be in the same position by the time you’re 50! However, you’ll become a better person on the journey, and you should be much happier too!
