What Is Spiritual Awakening?
Spiritual awakening can be hard to put into words because it's quite literally a shift in consciousness.
You begin to live from the perspective of higher divine consciousness rather than being trapped and confined by constructs of lower consciousness and the ego mind.
A beautiful metaphor for the spiritual awakening journey is that you become aware that you are a drop of water in the Ocean of Consciousness… And you become aware that in this, you are one with the entire Ocean as well.

10 Ways to ACCELERATE Your Spiritual Awakening Now
What Causes Spiritual Awakening?
The first phases of spiritual awakening usually happen spontaneously.
They are often triggered by a big challenge or crisis in physical reality that jolts you awake to the bigger picture, and allows greater light to circulate through you, awakening your mind to the reality that there's so much more than just the physical.
But once you go through this initial spiritual awakening and have a deepening of consciousness to reconnect with divine mind, you may find yourself desiring to accelerate the process of spiritual awakening.
You may wonder if there are ways to expand your consciousness, open to your inner soul wisdom, and access your higher spiritual light.
Yes, there are some things you can do to accelerate your awakening journey.
10 Ways to Accelerate Spiritual Awakening
Here are 10 practices you can adopt to support you on the path toward awakening spiritually.
Meditation is the process of quieting your lower ego mind to drop into connection with higher divine consciousness.
It takes practice in order to deepen, but with a consistent and regular rhythm of meditation, this can be one of the most powerful things to support you in opening to higher consciousness.
The daily practice of meditation has so many benefits.
If meditation is a struggle for you, if you're not doing a daily meditation practice I have a free guided angel meditation that walks you through connecting and awakening through meditation here:
Invoke a Higher Power
Tap into higher divine support.
Connect with your team of guides, angels, ascended masters … with the divine.
You can always request the assistance of higher spiritual beings to invoke support and inspiration to support your awakening.
You may have heard that you can solve a problem from the same level of mind that created it. And this is so true.
It's the power of tapping into higher support. Your team in Spirit can view your current situation from a higher vantage point to guide you through and to help you tap into the opportunities and blessings available to you.
There's no single right way to do this, but do call in support from Spirit to help guide your awakening.
Dive into Spiritual Study
We live in a time where ancient mystery school teachings and lineage secrets are being revealed through books, through courses, through teachings, to the masses.
And yet most people are choosing to just mindlessly browse social media.
If you want to accelerate your spiritual awakening, take back control of your time and pay attention to what you're filling your mind and consciousness with.
Choose to ingest information that's inspiring – that inspires you about the potential of awakening.
- Read the ancient spiritual texts.
- Dive into spiritual study.
- Expand your conscious understanding of higher spiritual realities.
When you have frameworks to understand higher spiritual realities, your guides and angels can guide you through those times. Your conscious expansion supports you in blossoming, opening, and unfolding spiritually.
Consciously cultivate a mindset of presence in the moment … shifting your awareness back to observe.
By doing this, you're tapping into the perspective of the higher divine mind. And through this perspective, all of life becomes a teacher.
When you observe how you respond, when you observe what you encounter, everything becomes an opportunity to learn and grow.
Practice mindfulness in order to quiet the chatter of your lower ego mind that occupies most people's mental states.
When you quiet that chatter, when you become mindfully aware, you create openings for higher divine consciousness to blossom from within you.
This path of spiritual awakening and mindfulness can indeed help you in accelerating your spiritual awakening even more.
Time in Nature
There is an inherent magic, balance, and oneness with the Divine that can be seen and observed when we get out into nature.
Time in nature has been scientifically proven to calm the nervous system and to be like a soothing salve for our physical bodies. But it's also a powerful awakening for the soul.
So, get out in nature.
- Breathe in the fresh air.
- Meditate under the trees.
- Sit by a stream.
- Relish the beauty of a sunset.
Tune into a sense of reverence and awe for the forces of life that are present in nature within you and all around you.
When you really become present in nature, tuning into that life force energy, it supports that higher divine life force in igniting your spiritual awakening journey.
Practice Acceptance and Surrender
Surrender is so powerful – when you're truly able to surrender your spiritual awakening to a higher power, to a higher divine mind.
Your awakening process can accelerate because no longer is your lower ego mind trying to be in control. When you surrender that control over to divine mind, greater spiritual awakening is naturally able to blossom and unfold.
A part of this is surrendering to what is in the moment …
- Accepting what is and allowing what is to be okay
- Accepting what is happening in your life as the perfect situation for growth
So, surrender your path and progress to the divine.
Accept what is, and claim the blessings of the present moment available to you now, knowing that all of life is your opportunity to bloom, to awaken, to grow.
When you accept what is, you surrender to the process and allow your natural spiritual awakening process to accelerate and unfold.
Gratitude is an incredibly powerful force that spiritual masters – those who are awakened to higher divine truth – naturally tend to resonate.
A state of awakened gratitude is not so much the lower mind saying, “I'm grateful the weather's good. I'm grateful for the sky. I'm grateful for being alive.”
It's more of a natural state of gratitude that permeates everything because you become able to see the blessing in everything.
So it's not only when good things happen; it's cultivating gratitude for everything.
The force of gratitude accelerates your awakening, but also opens you to such peace right now.
As you continue on this journey, how you journey – in gratitude and peace and love – is so much more powerful than striving towards any destination.
Spiritual awakening is about awakening consciousness, but your consciousness now resides within your physical vessel.
If your physical vessel is clouded with toxins that are byproducts of processed foods and alcohol and chemicals, and even negative thoughts and emotional patterns, that toxicity can cloud the ability for consciousness to fully awaken within you.
It's incredibly supportive to detox your mind, your thoughts, your body, and your life.
Eliminating toxins from your body through cleansing and prioritizing vibrant health and wellbeing will support an accelerating spiritual awakening.
It will also help you to live your most vibrant and healthy life.
Step into Service
You take this step when you commit to using the knowledge and powers you have gained on your spiritual awakening journey in service of others.
When you truly commit to this, your spiritual awakening journey has a way of accelerating. Your spiritual gifts have a way of emerging.
Believe that you can be of service, even now.
Be willing to step up and serve in the moment when the opportunity arises.
Know that being of service will help your awakening to accelerate and beautifully unfold; it's really at the core of the awakening journey.
It's not only about your growth, your life, your advancement … it's about you stepping into being of service in the highest interest of all.
Ultimately, spiritual awakening is about waking up to the reality that we are all connected.
We are all tapped into the same divine life force.
Acting in alignment with this by being of service will help your spiritual awakening to accelerate.
Practice Positivity and Openness
Life is going to continue to give you so many opportunities to learn, to teach, to be of service, and to grow.
If you're limiting yourself by the beliefs of your lower ego mind, you're likely blocking yourself from the very opportunities that will accelerate your journey.
This principle is about saying yes to life.
It's about greeting what arises in your life with optimism.
When you face a challenge, rather than complaining and letting yourself be weighed down, you cultivate optimism and positivity.
You say, “Something beautiful is going to unfold because I'm experiencing this challenge. A miracle must also be surfacing.”
This openness and positivity vibrationally changes your energetic signature.
It draws toward you more opportunities to grow and progress on your spiritual awakening journey. It enables you to be of service and to truly thrive in a state of joy, of truth, and of peace, which are the core of your divine nature.
You're empowered to use that experience to accelerate on your spiritual awakening journey.
