10 Common Signs You Had A True Spiritual Awakening
Many are often unprepared and unaware when they are having a spiritual awakening. This article helps to bridge the gap and enlighten on how to make the leap to higher consciousness smoothly.
Most people go their whole lives without having a complete understanding of total self awareness.
There are a few phases that occur. Although not everyone will encounter the same exact experiences. It really depends solely upon the individual's experience.
On my journey, I dedicated 13 years of my life to find enlightenment. I explored deeply the teachings of Buddhism, Zen and Meditation, obsessed with finding reality. Whatever I write and teach is from my own direct experience of awakening.
Enlightenment: is the "full comprehension of a situation". In simple terms enlightenment is defined as being advanced and having gained necessary information or knowledge, especially spiritual knowledge. It's where one shows understanding, acts in a positive way, and chooses to not follow old-fashioned or false beliefs.
Awakening: There can be two perceived definitions that ultimately equate to the same outcome. Technically an awakening is known as the act of waking up from sleep. If you want to talk in terms of spirituality it can also refer to other forms of new or sudden consciousness.
Without a doubt, when someone goes through an awakening they experience a shift in their mental mind frame.
Spiritual awakening: Many often may call it nirvana, bliss, but it is simply a form of "enlightenment". A spiritual awakening begins the moment a person can step back and "awaken" to their life with a newly sense of being in this world. Essentially it is a call to higher consciousness and deeper mental self awareness.
How do I know if I'm spiritual?
A person who is spiritual doesn't necessarily follow anyone else's doctrine. They see things really as they are without illusions. It allows you to feel Free.
What does it mean to be a spiritual person?
A spiritual person is someone who knows that we are all One, and consciously meditates and attempts to honor this Oneness and has integrative values of human soul consisting of altruistic, humanistic, personal, divine, and affective values leading to spiritual growth. After an awakening most spiritual people likely have established a set of values, principles and beliefs that give life meaning to them, and then uses them to guide the decisions and actions that they shall take.
How do I become enlightened?
Enlightenment is less about becoming and moreso is about rising above your ego to a more self aware, focused state of mind directly linked to consciousness.
Consequently, becoming enlightened may not be an easy task initially, although you can move a little closer to enlightenment every day.
In general, most people think of enlightenment as a greater awareness of the world or a higher consciousness.
However, having the right knowledge about the things that help you on your path to self-realization is the secret to be a person of value and enhance your spirituality.
