Spiritual awakening is the subject we are discussing in this episode of the “Think Zing!” series. The way I see it, it is that state of being which we can all live one day when we become aware of the fact that it is so much more to life than what we may have perceived until that day.
“The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth. “
A glimpse into existence is how it starts (I speak from my own experiences). For an instant, such an experience is rewiring our neural pathways into different brain plasticity. We are perceiving it as a spiritual awakening.
The perception of a spiritual awakening moment varies from person to person. However, we all perceive it as if things are not making sense anymore.
Suddenly, even if for just an instant, we are beyond traditions.
Therefore, the mass held beliefs and behaviors, fade away. Known history and various previous forms we have regarded as truths before that moment of a spiritual awakening experience become irrelevant.
So, spiritual awakening is both a breakthrough and a breakdown.
We breakthrough all the known forms of social, cultural and educational conditioning and self-imposed limitations. And, simultaneously we break down because we find ourselves completely high into the unknown, unexplainable, indescribable, and unbelievable moment of a sudden direct experience of all that is.
Spiritual awakening can be shocking, scary and shaky!
Also, awesome and enlightening at the same time. Some of us may not know how to handle this shift and try to escape it. Therefore we may be going for the help in the pill. Or, in the drink, in the joint, in the therapist, in the church, in the superstition, in the guru. It very much depends on our own willingness to go through it, or not, mixed with the very strong pull of our, before this moment, sociological-cultural training.
I have discovered and learned that are some awakening cues you can spot:
- Sleep pattern change
- Tingly sensations in the scalp and body
- Sudden waves of strong emotions for no reason.
- Old issues coming back
- Feeling lost
- Healthier eating habits
- A lesser need for food
- An increased sensitivity
- Seeing sparkles
- Hearing your name as if being called
- Fleeting smells and bodily sensations
- A change of perspective
- A feeling of integration
- A strong desire to break free from automatic response behaviors and old habits.
You may notice signs that, in a sense, speak directly to you on a very profound and personal level. You may be aware of synchronicity, coincidences that seem to flow faster as if leading you somewhere, like a strong sense of personal mission and purpose.
Then again, you may decide that there is something wrong with you and, maybe you need to:
Get a head check!
Nevertheless, you may have spotted a spiritual awakening moment. You suddenly open to more of everything!
Does this sound familiar?
In the coming episode, we are discussing What is the higher mind?
