At some point in our lives we begin to experience a significant change in consciousness and we undergo a spiritual awakening. During this awakening we learn about our true purpose and our potential as spiritual entities. This awakening is a shift from an outdated, fear-ridden reality to an updated, compassionate and loving reality. In some ways we are experiencing a global shift to a higher consciousness. Below are 5 signs that you are entering into a spiritual awakening.
At some point you’ve realized that you cannot be your best self by consuming toxic substances, such as cigarettes, or befriending toxic people who weigh you down. In order to improve and become a being of light you will understand that drugs and abusive relationships will deplete your positive energy and halter your progress. As you experience this spiritual awakening you will become increasingly passionate about consuming nutrient-rich foods and you will shy away from negative people. You can still have friends with negative personalities but it would be smart to spend some time away from them. This is merely a propensity for positive friends and a healthier lifestyle.
Politics, elections, or the strange things that people do doesn’t make sense anymore. You begin to realize how meaningless and harmful the world really is. There are some systems in place that are not necessary or the systems that are in place are dysfunctional at best. You might find more solace and peace by exploring your creativity while in this phase.
During this phase you will feel a strong connection to the Earth itself and all living beings. You develop more empathy to the point that pollution, pain, and famine brings about a strong reaction within you and you wish that you could instantly help all beings that are suffering on Earth. As you learn to love yourself more, you will be able to love others more and this will foster a stronger sense of empathy towards others.
You realize that throughout your life you helped create and develop new experiences that has shaped the world around you. As you understand your own reality, you also bring about experiences that you want to have. You recognize that you can change your life and the lives of those around you. You begin to take on full responsibility for your actions, emotions, and experiences.
You give more than you take. You begin to realize that this planet could use some more love. You recognize that you can use your own gifts and energy to spread selfless love and service throughout the world. During this phase you may feel like giving your belongings to charities or a deep desire to volunteer more in your community. You begin to have a more minimalist lifestyle and you recognize that having outward clutter can cause inward clutter as well. You also feel more light and positive energy when you give more and take less.
