A spiritual awakening can be hard to describe—it is freeing, life-changing, paradigm-shifting, personal, and sometimes, completely overwhelming.
Maybe you’re wondering if “spiritual awakening” is even an appropriate term for what you’re experiencing.
Honestly, we all experience spiritual awakening differently, and you might even have multiple spiritual awakenings over your life as you progress further and deeper on your spiritual path. Stages of awakening can come in a flash of revelation, or they can be a slow, steady process of shifting understanding.
In short, spiritual awakening is characterized as recognition of your True Self. But what does that mean?
There’s a number of ways in which a spiritual awakening will shift your experience:
A spiritual awakening will blow open your consciousness. As a result, you’re likely to notice connections you never did before, have rushes of ideas, and a new sense of purpose.
An awakening can cause the illusion of societal expectations and binds to fall away, enabling you to see beyond them to a new freedom where your choices are based on what is best for you, not what is expected of you.
This lets you see your path to self-actualization more clearly. And once you see your purpose laid out so clearly, you’ll feel compelled to pursue it—or perhaps a better way to put it is that you will finally feel free to pursue it.
You’ll also find that your subconscious mind no longer holds you back with fears and self-sabotage. Instead of this negativity, you’ll find yourself full of confidence, clarity, and positive thoughts.
As implied in the name, a spiritual awakening holds great significance for your spiritual life. It can lead to a powerful kindling of new passions, fueled by your burgeoning awareness of your purpose in life.
You may also find yourself in an abundance mindset. This refers to your ability to suddenly identify a wealth of new opportunities in every area of your life as your mind is freed from external binds of societal pressures.
Additionally, you’ll likely become sensitive to the energies that come off of thoughts, emotions, environments, and other aspects of everyday life—both from others and yourself.
Most of all, your spirit will gain a sense of wholeness and peace. A spiritual awakening lets you put your struggles with the world behind you.
This can be the most unexpected affect of a spiritual awakening. A person in a spiritual awakening may experience bursts or drains of energy, as well as changes to weight, eating habits, and sleeping patterns.
Don’t worry, this is not unusual, and it’s nothing to worry about. Your body is trying to keep up with great mental and spiritual shifts—listen to what your body is asking for and treat yourself with understanding and care.
Some changes may last (such as a better sense of when your body is or is not hungry, or an increased desire to eat things that are good for you), but most physical signs of an awakening will settle back into expected patterns with time.
Spiritual awakening is deeply personal, and a little different for each of us. What someone else felt in an awakening may be very different from what you experience—or even from what other spiritual awakenings are like for you at different times in your life.
But if these common signs ring true to your experience, you can feel certain you have had one. Congratulations—keep listening to yourself, and reap all you can from your awakening to become your Truest Self and become more in tune with your authentic soul path and with the universe.
