Did you expect your spiritual awakening to be difficult?
Spiritual awakening is a destructive process. You are now confronting your previous self and having to see the cold harsh reality. Instead of looking away, you must turn inwards to find relief.
This stage of your spiritual awakening is setting the path for the rest of your journey. You have many thoughts, beliefs and identifications that you must sort through. This time in your journey is about finding truth. It’s the ultimate letting go of your former self and realizing who and what you really are.
Spiritual awakening is often compared to waking up from a dream. Once you have awoken from the dream state and have seen through the illusion of self, you have now begun the next step in your spiritual journey. You may be wondering, what happens after spiritual awakening?
After a spiritual awakening, a big portion of life stays relatively the same. The only thing that changes is the perspective in which life is viewed. Instead of seeing life through “I” being in the driver seat, this illusion is shattered. Life begins to be seen through an observatory perspective.
You may have just had an incredible experience during your spiritual awakening. Everything felt amazing, you were in total bliss and then suddenly.. nothing. This is a common occurrence, most people who have a spiritual awakening go through this experience. What exactly caused your spiritual awakening to “stop”?
A real, true spiritual awakening will not be able to be stopped. The experience you felt was the honeymoon phase and now you are in between the dream and awakened state. The illusion of self hasn’t been seen through entirely, only partially, this time should be used for inward reflection.
When you have a spiritual awakening, your entire world seems to be shifting rapidly. Not only does your perception of life change, your environment will also start reflecting that change.
It may come as a shock at first, waking up is akin to waking up as a baby for the first time. How exactly do you deal with losing friends during a spiritual awakening?
When you have your first initial awakening, a part or all of your ego is torn apart. Before your awakening, you may have been blinded by the ego’s desires and may have had friendships that were unsatisfactory to your true life path. Letting go in the moment is the key.
Spiritual awakening is a beautiful thing but when we initially wake up we are faced with many challenges we haven’t encountered before in our dream state.
It’s not uncommon for one to lose their motivation to live the life they led before and while this is understandable there are still daily tasks that must be done for us to live in the waking world.
The best thing we can do to combat these issues is to first understand exactly why we lose our motivation. Once we have a good understanding of why there is lack of motivation after our spiritual awakening then we can deal with the issue at hand. While it may seem like it’s a good idea to completely quit your job and abandon all your friends, these impulse decisions will come back to haunt you. It’s best that we further explore the why and the how so you can come up with a plan that suits your experience best.
Spiritual awakening only happens entirely to a select few lucky individuals around the world. Unless you’re like them and have a full, spontaneous spiritual awakening then you will go through stages throughout your journey.
Everyone will have their own path where the universe will guide you along the way. Knowing what to expect can be beneficial to us to know exactly what stage we are in our spiritual awakening.
Don’t try to rush through every stage, they are there for a reason. Waking up from a dream that lasted your entire life isn’t easy, so try to just relax and enjoy the ride.
On paper a spiritual awakening seems as if it’s just shy of a magical experience and while sometimes it can seem that way a true spiritual awakening can be downright destructive.
The main issue spirituality seekers face is finding not only good information but the right information regarding their spiritual awakening. There are so many people out there that are only after your wallet rather than truly giving you down to earth advice.
A true spiritual awakening can lead us into deep isolation where we feel lonely and not have anyone we can turn to discuss our issues with.
Do not fear as there are many ways to deal with these problems, we will discuss why it happens and the steps we can take to deal with it.
Questioning whether or not spiritual awakening is real is a common question that gets asked every day in the spiritual community.
The issue with the question itself is it requires a definition of what spiritual awakening actually is and that is where most fail in their response to the question.
Spiritual awakening can seem like a fantasy for some while it seems like daily life for others. A common assumption would be that “If I cannot witness it in my personal reality then it must not be objectively true”. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
If everyone asking the question took the time to do some searching within themselves they could have their own answers.
