Are You Ready for Spiritual Awakening?
Both positive and negative experiences can trigger your spiritual awakening. For example, you’ve had something happen to shake up your life such as the death of someone you love or a pet, a divorce, losing your job, or a serious illness.
Or, it could also just as well be something wonderful and positive like a new loving relationship, the good fortune of an inheritance, or a career promotion.
Sometimes spiritual awakening seems to happen spontaneously for no particular reason at all.
What is The Mysterious Force
Triggering Your Spiritual Awakening?
Haven’t you always felt there was an unseen force guiding you? Or, maybe you’d say dragging you through life in ways that were beyond your control?
The truth is there is something guiding you. Actually, there are two things guiding you and that is the problem. There are two main programs competing to be in charge. The most prominent force is the ego-personality that includes all the karmic forces you’ve set in motion over many lifetimes. The biggest problem with the ego operating system is it is based on fears such as guilt, worry, low self-acceptance, doubt, anxiety, rejection, and paranoia.
The Good News
There is also a positive force in your life that is always urging your spiritual awakening and it has many positive qualities. The challenge with capitalizing on this positive resource is that it operates in the background and allows the fear programs to dominate until you form a relationship with it and begin forming a relationship with it. The positive resource is your soul which operates below the surface of your fears waiting for you to discover it and call on it. Most likely, you haven’t always been aware of it or understood it.
Your soul wants you to evolve, but it is not forceful like the ego. It is more of a still small voice urging you to evolve and have a spiritual awakening. Your soul slowly leads you from one stage to another for your entire life. It just operates in the background of your conscious awareness and it gradually leads you through stages of spiritual awakening.
Your Spiritual Stages
Below are some of the main characteristics of the spiritual stages you’ll find yourself evolving through. As you read them, they will help you reflect on your life and recognize how you are being guided.
Spiritual Awakening Stage 1
An early sign of spiritual awakening is to notice you are starting to change some of your previously cherished beliefs.
This could be triggered by circumstances in your life changing which causes you to re-evaluate what you believe. This could also be a time of turmoil as challenging long-held beliefs can be like an earthquake to your personality and stability.
From the time you were young you committed yourself to certain beliefs that guided your choices and decisions. When you start awakening spiritually some of those underlying beliefs may be radically tested. Changing beliefs upsets your status quo and undermines you sense of stability which can trigger some fear and anxiety that can confuse you and cause you to contract into what has been familiar.
However, in some cases of your circumstances being negative or challenging, they may cause you to seek answers in places you wouldn’t have looked before. This stage of new discoveries can take you into unknown territory quite different from what has been your comfort zone, but it is also an exciting stage of breakthroughs in understanding and spiritual realizations. This searching can lead you to your next stage of spiritual awakening and discovery.
Spiritual Awakening Stage 2
You become either challenged by changes in your life, or you are thrilled by new directions. In either case, you can feel yourself changing inside and that leads to new realizations.
Friends may not understand or even relate to what you are experiencing. Yet, you are driven further to understand the changes happening within you and around you, so you keep searching for more answers. This is an intriguing stage of new discoveries and spiritual realizations, and they drive you to keep seeking more spiritual breakthroughs.
There are many spiritual paths to explore and while this can be somewhat confusing at first you’ll find that everything you investigate has gifts for you and broadens your understanding of how life works. You’ll also discover some commonalities in all spiritual paths and as you apply spiritual practices such as meditation, mantras, prayers, and self-inquiry, you will notice your inner space is changing into greater acceptance, spaciousness, and inspiration. This leads you to stage 3.
Spiritual Awakening Stage 3
At this point you realize that the answers you are seeking are inside of you and not external. This leads you to deeper meditations to discover the internal core issue causes of what is attracted and repelled from your life. There are certainly causes for every effect in your life; however, most of the causes are below your conscious awareness. This is because all causes are determined by forces you have set in motion in the past and your deepest beliefs which have long been forgotten either from childhood or past lives.
Everyone is affected by the karmic energies they have empowered which give rise to the perception that circumstances seem to arise spontaneously from nowhere often catching you off guard. The causes lie in your subconscious and other places hidden from your conscious awareness which is why altered states are meditation are important to discover what is true and what isn’t.
You find there are positive and negative forces within you that are responsible for what you experience. Through these discoveries you find methods for eliminating what doesn’t support you.
You also delve more deeply into your spiritual nature and align yourself with love, kindness, and integrity. People may leave your life as others enter who are more aligned with your new directions.
Spiritual Awakening Stage 4
After going through the adjustments of stage 3, your life begins to smooth out. You have established some spiritual practices that are helping you evolve. In addition, you may find people who understand your journey and support you.
You live with a greater degree of happiness and satisfaction, and you feel more soul centered. You feel reassured you are on the right trajectory for your evolution. You are exploring ways to deepen your positive experiences such as my Energy Self-Mastery program.
Spiritual Awakening Stage 5
Life is far less about struggling and more about unconditional love and peacefulness. You find you are happy all the time or at least most of the time, and you live in a state of universal harmony in which you have positive synchronicity and you are supported in your goals.
You are now integrating your soul much more in everything you experience. You have awakened to some of the wonderful gifts the soul brings to your life. You now have a sense of being whole, complete, and in unity consciousness, and you feel the contentment, fulfillment, and joyfulness the soul brings to you.
You are much less affected by outer circumstances, and equanimity is now more sustained in your life.
Spiritual Awakening Stage 6 & Beyond
You may find you are becoming more intuitive and perceptive to everything around you. You are more insightful and wise, and others look to you for guidance.
Because you are deeply surrendered, you can be assured you are moving forward even if you seem to be on a plateau. My Handbook for Enlightenment goes into much greater detail on surrender, what it is and how to do it effectively to accelerate your spiritual evolution.
Your life journey can be mystical and even magical at times.
Where to Go From Here
Engaging in spiritual practices on a daily basis is your key. At times you may let things slip, but it is important to put yourself back on track by spending some time every day dedicated to your spiritual awakening and evolution.
In some cases, the practices that once excited you may seem to become mundane and you may even skip them. You may also feel like you are losing your passion for life. This due to the ego drives being replaced by the soul, and these are all temporary phases most people go through. To keep moving forward you’ll need to recommit to clearing and releasing with a meditation practice. Decide to re-commit today!
You’ll find a treasure trove of inspiration and practices in my book, Handbook for Enlightenment and Ascension. This book contains many gems of spiritual discoveries I have realized over my lifetime from my own practices as well as doing more than 50,000 one-on-one sessions with people helping them on their journey. There is no other book like this with clear explanations and most importantly the quickest practices I have found that can accelerate your own awakening and enlightenment. After you’ve read the book I’d appreciate it if you’d email me your impressions and experiences with it. You can use the contact form on this website to be sure your emails reach me.
From the Heart,
PS I have found that many people are enthusiastic about their spiritual journey and the practices they are learning, but over time they begin to slack off. If that has happened to you resolve to reengage with your program, and my book will be a very helpful resource for you on your path.
