What is a spiritual awakening?
A spiritual awakening can be a gradual or radical shift in consciousness. It can feel overwhelming and incredibly intense, lonely, alienating, and confusing. At the same time, it can turn out to be the most beautiful spiritual transformation in your life.
A spiritual awakening is an altering of the reality you once knew to something incredibly different. Most often, spiritual awakenings happen without warning. Spiritual awakening is also known as "spiritual rebirth."
What are the most common signs of a spiritual awakening?
Feeling Isolated and Alone During a spiritual awakening, you might feel like something is missing. It's as if your way of thinking is so different from others around you, that you feel lost and alone. Things start "sifting" away gradually.
Intense Vivid Dreams While experiencing a spiritual awakening, your dreams are really getting your attention! Keep a journal next to your bed and make a few notes about the dream before you lose it.
Enhanced Intuition During a spiritual awakening, your intuition starts to heighten and may surprise you. Take note: you feel more intensely around others, have deeper "gut feelings," or hear that inner voice in your head become even stronger.
New Compassion Towards Others A spiritual awakening increases your compassion towards others. Even if you don't know them, you want the best for them.
You Question Everything You start questioning your "life purpose" and get the feeling of almost being homesick.
The "Knowing" During a spiritual awaking you might wake up one morning with a "knowing" of things you're not sure how you know but now have a complete understanding.
Everything Is Changing During a spiritual awakening, you might find your relationships, routines, and habits change. You observe your previous patterns for example drinking, feeling angry, diet considerations, etc., and want to change.
Seeing Signs from Spirit Are you seeing multiples of three numbers yet? This is the most common message from the spirit world during a spiritual awakening. 333, 444, 777 etc. Pay attention, you are on the right path!
Craving Alone Time As you experience a spiritual awakening, the idea of being around people who don't "fill your cup" just isn't working. You're perfectly fine spending time alone and actually prefer it.
Rebirth There is a new sense of "being" when you have a spiritual awakening. Like you are sluffing off the old you and developing new skin. Similar to a snake.
What are some things to assist you during a spiritual awakening?
Spend time in nature
What is the takeaway after a spiritual awakening?
A spiritual awakening is the process of cleaning out the old and allowing in the new. It is a radically different new way of looking at your life. Your ideas and view of the previous world around you will drastically change, including the way you look at spirituality. You will now be open to limitless possibilities.
A spiritual awakening feels uncomfortable and lonely at first, so it's encouraged to reach out to like-minded groups and continue to spiral up rather than down. Your mind-body connection and well-being grow consistently healthier. Relationships and engagements are more meaningful, and your personal idea of life success flourishes.
Remember you are not alone. Hang in there, because the result is amazing!
