The Four Phases of Spiritual Awakening.
In Which Phase Are You?
Are you experiencing spiritual awakening?
When it comes to spiritual awakening, as is the case with most spiritual experiences, it is almost impossible to fully describe in words what this means. Because spiritual experiences are, according to their own nature, not logical, or confined by the limitations of language.
Much of what happens when you awaken spiritually, can not be seen, or accurately described, but can only be felt, lived through, witnessed, and experienced.
So what does it mean to have a Spiritual Awakening?
Some describe awakening as the moment when you open your heart to God and allow the entrance of a new level of light and begin to see and experience a deeper understanding of what life really is.
Others would say that it is the moment when you detach yourself from your stories, overcomes constraints and limiting beliefs, allowing you to begin experiencing firsthand the answer to the question, “Who am I?”
No matter what words are used, spiritual awakening is a moment of transcendence and, with awareness, this moment can extend, affecting all areas of your life.
Spiritual Awakening changes the way you move through the world, and allows a sense of inner peace and tranquility to govern your actions and reactions.
Before you wake up, life seems to be a series of coincidences, or a series of events that you have a hand in orchestration. It is as if life is something that you exercise your will in order to influence.
Before you wake up, although you may have heard this before, it is often difficult to understand that everything that happens in life unfolds perfectly as it should. Our tendency is to believe that bad things happened to us and that good things happened because of us.
But when you start to wake up, applying little presence to your life and your universal experience as a human being, you begin to understand and, most importantly, to feel a flow with life.
Your presence allows you to relax and recognize that you are always in tune with the Divine energy of the Universe. Their coincidence ceases to be random and their intuition will become stronger and stronger.
Although different for all, a spiritual awakening takes only a moment.
Spiritual awakening is the time when you are prepared and willing to detach yourself from your ego and from the little you, who is fearful and confused, and who is not understood as you are.
Fortunately, these moments are powerful and transformative, and this shift in understanding can last only this moment, a few hours, or days.
Unfortunately for some, it is a time when one must learn to stabilize in order to live in this state of transcendence. There are, of course, many tools to help you evolve on your spiritual path.
It is not that this requires effort, work, or practice. Spiritual awakening is open to anyone who is prepared to give up false beliefs – take it years to get to this point, or a moment of impact.
What is necessary to stabilize this transcendence is to return repeatedly to the presence; to silence your mind and to get in tune with your heart center.
Spiritual awakening is a beautiful experience, but it may seem like a roller coaster sometimes when you waver between states of depression, states of exaltation and stability.
To help shed some light on this process, here are some stages through which most people evolve in the path of spiritual awakening.
The Four Phases of Spiritual Awakening
First Phase: The Call of Awakening
The call of spiritual awakening comes in many forms. The most commonly understood is the experience of loss, crisis, or some tragedy. Whether it’s death, financial hardship, an accident or injury, a divorce, a natural disaster, or health issues, this wake-up call is always unexpected.
In the face of the crisis you can stop acting normally and go into survival mode, often unable to think of anything other than the crisis. You are unable to absorb what is happening and feel intensely challenged. This type of wake-up call is often called “the dark night of the soul.”
The call of awakening can also be a prolonged period of frustration with life.
It is an ineffable feeling that something is missing. Something important.
The call can also be a moment of recognition or remembrance. Things get clearer and start flowing more easily and we get a sense of purpose. This can come from a conversation, a book, a spiritual practice or a surprise event.
However, the awakening call reaches him, and he pushes him to a phase of learning, seeking, and finding. When this happens, you suddenly need to know, understand, and experience more than you have begun to tune into.
You want to read, talk about it and feel it more deeply. The more time passes, the more urgent becomes your need to understand and integrate what is happening.
Second Phase: Creation
Eventually, through your quest for more information and more experiences, you may reach a point where you realize that the full extent of what you are seeking can not be found in books or even through spiritual masters.
You realize that what you are seeking and longing for is something you can only find inwardly.
If you are recovering from a crisis or a loss, you begin to feel that, just maybe, there was a gift there for you. You begin to see the solace in this situation and understand that your dark night of the soul was a kind of gift, seeking to propel you to something higher.
This gift, in the first place, manifests itself as the ability to see the beauty and grace of the universe that reveal themselves in your life. Often, you have to look back at something, and see how it has helped us, but at the creation stage you are merging more and more with the flow and ability to see perfection in all things. His need to label things as right and wrong, good and bad, diminishes.
It is now that you begin to experience more presence and synchronicity. It is not that suffering is over. You may still go crazy when your kids leave a mess in the kitchen or you may feel impatient in the supermarket queue, but you are also learning to stop identifying with these feelings, to switch back to the observer’s perspective, and to stay in your center, confident that everything is unfolding as it should.
Third Phase: Connection
Returning more and more to the presence, you begin to experience that who and what you thought you were, you are not. This is a time of duality and unity. You can see that your thoughts and feelings come and go, your reactions come and go, but something essential is always present.
You can identify with your thoughts and feelings or you can back off and see that you are not really what you are thinking and feeling. You are eternal. You are always present, you do not come and you go. You are firmly anchored in your connection with your Higher Self, with the realms of the Spirit, and with God.
Things cease to become obstacles and begin to become simple events that reach their field of consciousness, and then depart. Instead of becoming submerged in challenging emotions and experiences, you are able to simply observe these as apparitions in your inner world, or in the outer world around you.
It is not a robotic state. The thought and the feeling continue. You love, you laugh, you roll your eyes, but you know it’s more than all these things. You identify more with your Higher Self. In such a state, you become calmer, happier and more focused.
Fourth Phase: Integrating Your Truth
At this stage, the experience of who you really are is more steady and steady. You identify less and less as a person with problems to solve, and more like a spiritual being experiencing problems – which are not really problems, but just something that is happening.
This is a time of great joy because you are very connected with God and with the whole Universe. It is clear that you are One with all and with everything, deeply connected and intertwined with all life.
At this stage, the people in your life can begin to notice the vibration and peace on your face. You are still the same person as you were before, but you are also an entirely new person, because your understanding is much greater.
You have finally learned to reside in your heart instead of in your head.
Although it is difficult to describe spiritual awakening, people tend to know when it is happening to them.
Do you feel like you are going through a spiritual awakening?
So, probably, it’s …
You may have a dark night of the soul preceding it, or it may happen in a flash. But one thing is certain: when you are spiritually awakening, you feel it. You feel a little different, and you are not sure if you move forward or backward.
Know that you are not strange, and you are not alone. You are where you should be, and as you continue to access the inner light and the wisdom you have always had, and you are simply now learning how to get in tune … Life will begin to take on an even more magical feel.
Spiritual awakening is not an easy path, but it is full of blessings, magic and opportunities to live with more love, joy and fulfillment than ever before.
Spiritual awakening is aligning with the knowledge of your highest purpose and bringing yourself into alignment with it here and now.
But, of course, this happens one step at a time. And so, be kind to yourself, honor where you are and stay positive about where you are heading.
When you doubt, be silent, calm your mind, open your heart and connect with your angels. They will help you access the bright light and the wisdom that you lead inwardly.
Be filled with the knowledge that everything is happening as it should.
