Spiritual awakening refers to a developed psychological state where a person becomes conscious of the world. It is accompanied by a feeling of spiritual freedom. That is, the need to escape from society`s dictated ways to those that will bring more happiness and control over their lives. It also means avoiding the clichés of modern life that are inspired by televisions, magazines, social media and other channels. A great inspiration for a spiritual awakening comes from the urge to change the world. All in all, here are some little-known facts about spiritual awakening.
A Misfortune May Precede Spiritual Awakening
The road to an awakening of the soul is neither always straight nor smooth. However, a misfortune such as the death of a loved one or imprisonment may lead you to a realization of your true self. It is normal to turn to a superior power when in trouble like people turn to God when facing a challenge or a difficult time. Similarly, an ordeal or event that leaves you helpless may lead you to an awareness that induces the chances of awakening.
Spiritual Awakening is a Slow Process
The process to complete spiritual awakening is a destructive path, and this makes it difficult and slow as well. It is the process that leads us through a path where you come face to face with your fears and the old self. This process involves destroying all that you know about yourself and discovering new truths. Hence, this makes the awakening process slow but an absolute must to achieve completeness. Additionally, to complete this process and achieve full awakening, one has to be self-honest and accept the truth no matter how difficult that can be.
Psychological Activity during Spiritual Awakening
Spiritual awakening takes place internally with the individual consciousness and abilities join a higher level of awareness or energy. During this process, one may experience odd feelings of irritation which may be disturbing. Additionally, this may come along with a sense of helplessness and lack of control. At this point, you will probably be afraid and anxious, but these are common reactions when awakening begins.
Spiritual awakening not only grows your physical abilities that are the five senses of smell, sight, taste, hearing, and touching. It also increases spiritual abilities by enhancing your abilities of consciences, intuition, emotions, and inspiration. At the point of spiritual awakening, you will have a stronger connection with your instincts, and you learn to listen to your intuitions more. Subsequently, you will learn to follow and trust your instincts for guidance.
It Creates a Feeling of the Need to Change the World
After going through a spiritual awakening process successfully, you will feel an urge to help others. The primary goal of spiritual awakening is to heal the world by making it a better place for humans as well as animals. You will have a better and more profound understanding of the existence of animals and humans on earth. It becomes impossible to resonate with anyone or anything that can cause harm to people or animals. You will find new meaning in life which will be to help other people in need. Consequently, it gives you joy even if only one person or animal benefits from this help.
Yearning to Understand the Meaning of Life
Once you experience a spiritual awakening, this means that your inner self joins with a more superior or higher consciousness. Hence, most of the things you found interesting and fun in the past, may as well change significantly. A sudden urge to find new meaning in life emerge. However, the new interests have to be authentic and aligned to making the world a better place. Otherwise, you may end up feeling bored which psychologically, can lead to depression.
