9 Indications You’re Experiencing A Spiritual Awakening ~ Alex Grey

1. You’re creating your own beliefs.

Many self-defined spiritual people can talk to you at length for hours about spiritual beliefs of others, but when it comes to their own beliefs, there aren’t actually any. When you’re experiencing a true spiritual awakening, sure, you might find some solace in older beliefs and systems. You might find yourself deep in meditation or yoga, but while you’re there, you’re coming up with your own ideas and beliefs.

2. You want greater freedom.

During your spiritual awakening, one day you’ll wake up, look around, and suddenly feel shackled by your home, your job, your possessions, and possibly even your relationship. Don’t leap from bed, throw out everything, buy a van and follow your favorite band on tour just yet though. But think about the things in your life that weigh you down and deny you freedom. Think about how life would be without it and what you might be able to do without it.

3. You feel a deep draw toward personal development.

Where bubbly stories of a person’s escape from slavery or another’s return to good health from calamity used to not interest you, suddenly stories of personal development and triumph are important to you. You’re drawn to them because you’re now striving for it yourself.

4. When you’re in nature, you feel more connected than ever.

A hike through the woods may have once been a tedious, annoying thing that kept you from watching the game or playing some video games. But during your spiritual awakening, everything else melts away from your mind when you’re in nature. You suddenly feel so much more connected to it and the whole universe when in nature. It’s almost as though you can feel the pulse of the planet.

5. You find yourself talking to yourself or praying more often.

It’s a subconscious change that happens during your spiritual awakening. You have a sudden desire to express your thoughts and feelings, whether to yourself, to some higher entity, or in prayer. There’s nothing wrong with it. Saying your thoughts out loud puts them out into the universe. You never know how the universe will reply.

6. You’re experiencing synchronicity.

Synchronicity is a pretty strange experience. It’s the experiencing of meaningful, related events that are unlikely to be mere coincidence. These experiences tend to guide us toward a path, but sometimes they simply remind us that we’re already on right path.

7. You feel a deep oneness with your fellow man.

Congratulations, you’ve entered empathic territory. All human beings are soft-wired to feel empathy. Empathy is the feeling of seeing someone else hurt and feeling that pain yourself. It’s what causes you to feel unwell or faint at the sight of blood. You’re feeling someone else’s pain. You’re experiencing their experience. During your spiritual awakening, you’ll find yourself more connected to your fellow man; not just in a Moby We Are All Made Of Stars kind of way, but you start to understand that everyone is on a path, everyone experiences many of the same things, and we’re really not at all alone in this.

8. Taking care of your body is more important.

You smoke, you drink, you eat at Taco Bell, but then you start experiencing your spiritual awakening and suddenly none of that sounds appealing. You want some fresh squeezed juice or a delicious salad with vegetables. Even more so, you want to grow your own vegetables, be one with the land, and nourish your body in the purest way.

9. All of your emotions are felt more fully.

Sure, we all experience a wide range of emotions, but people in the midst of a spiritual awakening will feel them more fully. Spiritual people are characterized as being happy, frolicking little angels, but spiritual people do feel anger and depression and they feel those emotions more so than most. It’s not to say they don’t also experience joy and satisfaction; they simply feel the full range and to a higher degree.

My childhood world was one of abuse, repression and terror. This is what I believed the world was about. Until, from the depths of my despair, I began searching for a new way. My conscious spiritual journey began when I was called as a young adult, determined to find new life and freedom from this limited world, to a higher quest for the Truth of myself. I studied many forms of spiritual practice, including Buddhism, Native American, Judaism and others, and soon became aware that the Source of All Life is within all traditions.

Approximately 15 years ago, I entered into a deep Shamanic /healing Path centered in the heart of Brazil. I remained fully committed and dedicated to my journey in this form for eight years, healing most of the false ideas that I carried through all of my lifetimes. After this I was called to enter a several year retreat. During this time I was guided to enter fully into the teaching of A Course in Miracles. I received the transmission completely through my heart, and guided by my prayers, intention and deep devotion to be healed of all that held me prisoner in this temporary illusion, my heart completely melted and I awakened to the Truth of All Love. Since my awakening, I have dedicated my life to guide, with radical gentleness and complete devotion, all beloveds who have a deep desire to come home easily and gently.

Chris Celine is an awakened spiritual Mystic and guide to many beloveds seeking a gentle way home. A powerful healer and seer, Chris Celine transmits the love of God in profound and life altering ways. Her pure love can be received in every cell. She is a living example of the Love of God manifesting on earth and walks in this world as a reminder that everything can be healed and transformed into Love.

The Sanctuary of Relationships~ Indigo Nin

When we reveal ourselves to our partner and find that this brings healing rather than harm, we make an important discovery ~ that intimate relationship can provide a sanctuary from the world of facades, a sacred space where we can be ourselves, as we are. This kind of unmasking ~ speaking our truth, sharing our inner struggles, and revealing our raw edges ~ is a sacred activity, which allows two souls to meet and touch more deeply.

~ John Welwood

New Earth relationships will be so different to the relationships you now have. They will be gentler and more playful and yet wise. There will be less intensity and drama, and more caring, nurturing and companionship.

You will come to realise that the purpose of relationship, all relationship, is to “relate” – to share and to support and to nurture from your own sense of abundance and completeness.

You will look for relationships that are spiritual and heart-based, rather than physical and emotional. In the Old Earth relationship paradigm, relationships were based on physical attraction and emotional bonding.

In the New earth, your relationships will be based in the heart, in feelings, compassion, connection and mutual respect and support.

We for-see many relationships growing between people of different age groups and different cultures, relationships that will be deep and meaningful, and yet would not have seemed possible before because of the narrow limitations of what you considered a relationship to be in your Old Earth energy framework.

These relationships will be light and joyous, and yet capable of real depth and intimacy because the people concerned will be more interested in the connections of the soul rather than the connections of the external and the physical realms.

There will be sharing and caring, and yet both partners will be independent and self-reliant within themselves. There can be no co-dependency in the New Earth. Balance is so important.

These relationships will be balanced and loving, between two equally powerful and caring persons. There will be no dominance, no victims, no dramas and no abuse.

There will be commitment – commitment to the relationship and the mutual growth of each of the partners within the relationship. And this will be true for all relationships, not just love or romantic relationships.

Friendships will become deeper and more meaningful experiences, as you understand that you have soul families, and that your friends often are close soul relations who are here to love and support you in your work on the planet. And when your relationships exist in this loving and balanced state, then your sexuality will also be loving and balanced.

And, once again humans will learn to celebrate and enjoy their creative and sexual energies in ways that are life-enhancing and ecstatic. And we are here to work with you and love you and support you as you move into this loving and love-filled space.

In the Present Moment, There is No Death ~ Leonard Jacobson

In the present moment, there is no death. Then where is death? It is somewhere in the future. When we are in the past and future world of the mind, we can anticipate the future. We can imagine the future. And that is where you will find death.

Each day, death is approaching. It is coming closer. This creates fear and anxiety for many people, often at an unconscious level. It accounts for our feelings of vulnerability and mortality and it completely overlooks that dimension of us that is immortal.

However, if I am fully present, there is no future. There is only this moment and death does not exist in this moment. For death to exist, I would have to leave the present moment and enter the world of the mind. I would have to peer into an imaginary future to find it. It has no connection to the present moment. Even if I am in the last few moments of my existence here on earth, there is no death if I can remain present.

In this moment, I am present with my breath. No death! In this moment, I am still present with my breath. Still no death! I am relaxed. There is no judgment. There is no holding on. There is no fear of the unknown. I am simply present with my breath, moment to moment. Perhaps I can hear the rain outside my window or the sound of a bird singing. I am present with the sound. Or I am present with the fragrance of the flowers next to my bed. In Presence, I experience no fear or anxiety, just a feeling of gratitude.

Then suddenly, I leave the body. This is not death! It is simply a transition to another dimension. I am transitioning from the physical dimension to the soul dimension. If I have not awakened fully during my lifetime, I will be born again. I will be given another chance to free myself from the past and future world of Illusion. I will be given another opportunity to awaken into the truth of life, love and God revealed through the doorway of the present moment. If I have awakened fully, then my return to the physical plane is optional. But why would I not want to return? After all, this is Heaven on Earth.
