Here’s What Happens When Your Spirit is Awakened

Going through a spiritual awakening may not turn out to be Eat, Pray, or Love-esque all the time. Traversing this type of journey can feel confusing, sometimes even alienating. But no matter how steep the road turns out, the journey is always worth it in the end. 

Before we go further into the life-changing benefits of having a spiritual awakening, let’s discuss: what the heck does being “awakened” mean, anyway? Surprisingly, of all places, I found the best answer on Urban Dictionary. It means to be spiritually aware of the universe, and it’s direct metaphysical connection to one’s being and the connection it hosts to all life forces.

Once you reach this level, you begin to bring more joy and levity into your life. But before you get there, here’s what happens when your spirit is about to start “waking up.”

You feel lost and confused. It’s as if there’s a certain disconnect between your soul and the physical world. This usually is the most painful part, but it’s also the most crucial. It’s because people often only realize they need to change something drastically when they’ve hit rock bottom. It may be a divorce, loss of a loved one, a breakup, an accident, unemployment, or depression. As the well-known saying goes, “when you’ve hit rock bottom, the only way is up”. And “up” is the next phase, which is… 

You begin searching for answers. Now that your only direction is up,  you’re forced to look for solutions. Your mind becomes more hyper-aware of what you need to do next, and so you become more open to ideas. You slowly realize that the world has everything you need and more and that your guides are pointing you in the right direction. All you need to do is seek and keep your eyes wide open. When you do…

You see things from a different perspective. You begin to realize that it’s all about how we see the world, and your mindset plays a huge role in your healing. You start making choices that lead to a better version of yourself. You develop an innate longing for self-development. And once you’ve mastered this phase…

You dare to seek new heights. “Nothing great comes out of our comfort zones” will become your new mantra. When you search for greener pastures, you live more boldly. You begin to understand that everything is connected in the universe and that humans are more alike than different. This new perspective will give you the courage to go on new adventures, meet people who think like you, and build tribes that create a positive impact in your life. Once you’ve reached this level in your life…

You develop a habit of continuously working on yourself. You begin to understand that a spiritual awakening is not a one-time thing or a smooth sailing cruise. Just like working out, you know your muscles become weak again if you stop going to the gym. This way, your newfound awareness pushes you to work on yourself constantly. 

For a deeper, more detailed coverage on the topic of being spiritually awakened, I invite you to listen to my interview with JP Sears on Stellar Life Podcast. JP is an ultra spiritual guru with a twist. JP doesn’t have that usual shaman-y vibe, but his views on life and more are ultimately very profound. I wish you all the best on your journey and may you stay ‘awake.’
