Spiritual Awakening – you hear this term so often, and you have an idea of what it is, but what does it really mean?
I’ve been teaching my certified spiritual practitioners how to read and perceive auras and how to do dowsing and muscle testing as diagnostic tools. I started to talk about some of the experiences that I’ve been having and those I’ve experienced during my own spiritual awakening.
Then came the question that I often get asked – what the heck is a spiritual awakening, anyway?
A spiritual awakening is, as the name suggests, a time or experience an individual has when they transition from being aware of only the physical reality and awaken to something more. The more is something that we label spiritual and the spiritual is different for everyone. So, part of the process of spiritual awakening is that you become aware that there is something more.
As you are going along through life, you’re focused on the job, the family, the bills, making enough money, getting the right partner, getting the house, getting the car, getting the other car, getting the bigger car, getting the second wife or the better boyfriend, and having the kids, getting the kids into the right school. It’s all the things you desire in your physical reality.
And, while you’re going through your physical reality, it’s not that you aren’t compassionate, kind and loving, because you do care deeply about other people; but you haven’t yet awakened to a higher level of awareness when one begins to feel there is something more, something that might be spiritual.
Reaching a New Level of Awareness
What happens when you become aware that there might be something more that might be spiritual? You realize it’s more than just ‘gathering stuff’ – it’s about having deep, connected relationships and feeling really loved and loving. It’s about caring not only for your immediate family or your extended family, but also caring about, and taking care of, greater groups of people, different communities, and people outside of your communities.
This is where the barriers start to break down. It’s where you no longer only care about your family, your pet, your town, your county, or your race. You start to care about all animals, the environment, racism – breaking down those kinds of barriers – ecology, the planet, society as a whole. Your awareness expands, and it might go even beyond that.
The idea of awakening and sourcing your spirit is that you become aware of the entire universe, and you realize you exist as part of the universe. And, within this universe, you are a co-creator of everything you experience. The universe creates you, and you create the universe, so there’s this symbiotic relationship.
Moving Through the Awareness Stages
Once you become aware of the non-physical, you might have crazy dreams and start to have an awareness of phenomena, which is the first phase of anyone’s spiritual awakening.
Sadly, some get stuck at the phenomena stage. Awareness goes up, and then it levels off. You think you’re done … I can speak to dead people; I can see auras; that’s it; I’m awakened spiritually. The danger of stopping at that point is there’s another whole level to reach – you should never reach a plateau.
One of the things that can occur during the early stages of your awakening is you realize you’ve lived thinking this is how it is and these are the rules. You’ve believed things fit into a box; suddenly, there are no walls to the box, no sides to the box, and no dimensions. This is because you’ve transcended this dimension, so you have crazy dreams and crazy experiences.
This can be quite challenging, because part of your awakening is the willingness to let go of what you thought was real and true, and open yourself to what you start to sense is greater than who you were before and what you knew before. That realization can be challenging and, sometimes, disturbing.
Your Spiritual Awakening
Your spiritual awakening will be whatever you experience. During it, you will be aware of some other source of energy. Don’t get stuck in the phenomena. There’s more to it than talking to dead people or seeing spirit orbs, ghosts, and auras. It’s an entirely new level of being aware, of absolutely being connected to the divine, and you can create deep, profound growth and transformation in yourself, others, and the planet.
We’re at a time when the whole world is starting to awaken and in the midst of a dramatic and profound spiritual transition. I would love to have you join me on this exciting journey!
With love, Lisa
