Could you be experiencing a spiritual awakening?
If you’ve felt like your life’s been changing and that you’re growing as a person, you may be on the track to a spiritual awakening. However, there’s a lot more to it than that. Here are 10 signs you’re having a spiritual awakening.
As you open your eyes to the world around you, your compassion for others will grow. Listening to others more, you’ll sense their emotions. This means you’ll know and care more about the difficulties others have faced in their lifetime.
Your awakened empathy will become strong enough that you’ll have to make a choice: numb yourself or find a healthy way to cope. Learn about the healing power of Ayahuasca here.
Avoiding Negative People and Behaviors
Going through a spiritual awakening requires you to shed negative behaviors and distance yourself from negative people. As a result, your urge to gossip and judge others will diminish. You’ll be drawn towards things that feel more positive, instead of being petty and bitter.
The changes you experience may result in you becoming a lone wolf. In fact, you may crave the solitude. That’s because you’ll be spending a lot more time introspecting and enjoying silence.
Self-Reflecting for Positive Change
As you self-reflect, a natural impulse may come alive within you to explore your past, to better understand your present. You can work on changing negative behaviors by digging deep enough to find the root. This can also be done with your present situation.
The goal of self-reflection is to develop a more positive self.
Intuition is Heightened
Listen to your inner voice more and you can explore your hidden spiritual gifts. For some, this can further their spiritual awakening by developing psychic abilities. The four major intuitive abilities are:
You may strengthen one, two, or all of your senses.
Living in the Moment
If you find yourself asking ‘what if’ less often because you’re too busy enjoying the moment, that’s a good sign you’re on the path to a spiritual awakening. This means you’re more likely to say yes to opportunities and live without fear. Just remember to live responsibly.
Living in the moment will help you realize that the only time you turn back is to self-reflect for positive change.
Drawn to Nature
You could begin to feel an intense connection to nature that distracts you from what you once found important. As your passion for the outdoors grows, you’ll grow more interested in conserving the planet for future generations to enjoy. This could lead to other lifestyle changes, as well.
When you’re feeling drawn to outdoor volunteer opportunities, you can: participate in a beach clean-up, plant trees in your local community, and organic farming with WWOOF.
Desiring a United Community
Self-reflection will aid you in your journey to understand others. This epiphany could lead you to volunteer opportunities and helping others find their inner peace.
You’ll also discover there’s more to life than what you once thought was important. You’ll lose the urge to judge others and instead, focus on connecting with them.
This sudden desire for a united community happens because a spiritual awakening helps you see that no one is better than anybody.
Your Priorities Change
A spiritual awakening will change your life. Your personality, attitude, and priorities will shift. Things you once spent most of your time doing may now seem pointless.
Now that you’re growing, you will begin to prioritize your personal space and ditch bad habits. Some people even quit their jobs if they’re not lining up with where they’re headed. That’s because you’re starting to see what truly matters in life.
It can be uncomfortable to change. You have to take a hard look in the mirror and see how your actions and behaviors can affect others. When you do, you’ll begin thinking before you speak and paying close attention to the way you say things.
You’ll no longer be blind to your old negative habits. Your spiritual awakening will make you uncomfortable when you think about how things you did hurt others.
Yearn to Discover Your Purpose
What you thought you could be is only a fraction of who you’re meant to become. A spiritual awakening makes you aware of that. You’ll know it’s happening when you suddenly begin yearning to discover your purpose in life.
When you break your bad habits and change your priorities, you give yourself room to grow. As you change, you may learn that the title you claim isn’t what you are. That you are in fact meant to do something greater.
Know the Fake Signs of a Spiritual Awakening
The signs of a spiritual awakening can range from person to person. Some may experience all everything shared on this list, others may experience different experiences, some may not experience anything at all. While the signs can differ, spiritual awakening will never consist of doing things that give the impression that you’re better than anyone else or avoiding trauma and only focusing on the good.
When you consider yourself better than others, your ego’s at work. Volunteering, being nice, and conserving doesn’t make you better than others. A true spiritual awakening won’t include your ego.
You have to face the childhood traumas responsible for your bad habits. Confronting your fears and pain is how you learn and grow. Instead of running from the past, see how you can learn from it.
A spiritual awakening can feel like destruction. You could suffer from depression and anxiety as a result of becoming self-aware and purging the negative things in life you were blind to before. It’s important you take time to discover healthy ways to cope.
