I have done a lot of reading and research on this topic and put together this article from my experiences and a few other sources.
A spiritual awakening is a huge life changing event. It can be very confusing especially if a person was not ever spiritual or religious.
A spiritual awakening is when one has become aware of themselves on a much deeper and higher level. They will feel drawn to God, The Angels, The Divine, The Universe, The Creator or Source. They will suddenly have a deeper awareness of what is going on around them. They will be more aware of their life experiences and the lessons they have learned from these experiences and the reasons behind them. They will start to feel more at one with themselves and everything around them and they may feel more content and at peace with their surroundings, themselves and with other people.
They will start to accept who they are and let go of any hurt, anger and negative feelings that they had towards their life and others. They will gradually go through a healing process of their heart, soul, mind and eventually letting go of ego base situations. They will suddenly start seeing the world in a different way and their previous views and opinions may change drastically.
The awakening can be very confusing and so powerful that they may question themselves and even their sanity due to the symptoms that occur during the awakening. It can strip a person of previous beliefs, feelings and life views causing them to see the world and themselves in a whole new light. It will be a positive experience towards the end of the awakening, but at first it can be quite disruptive, shocking and upsetting to them and their current life. It will force them to take a deeper look at themselves, face their fears, re-live any bad experiences, memories and forces them to see things in a way that they previously never thought possible. All of these changes can be quite unsettling. It may take several months or even years of soul searching before they start to feel more at one and have feelings of serenity.
A spiritual awakening can be spontaneous, or caused by a profound event in a person’s life. A few examples can be a loss of a loved one, or a near death experience, religion can also trigger the awakening. Meeting your twin soul can spark the activation of spiritual awareness. When one has completed their spiritual awakening, they will look back on their life and they may see how much they were just existing. A spiritual awakening brings them out of this just existing life and into an awareness to exist with a new and positive look of life with light and love.
Because everyone is different and reacts differently to a spiritual awakening the time frame of ones awakening will vary from one person to the next. Just remember your spiritual awakening can take days or even years till the awakening process is completed. It is all about your journey to yourself and to your God/Creator.
Blessings, Love and Light
