Having a spiritual awakening is an experience like no other. When this happens to you, you ‘awaken’ from your previous state of mind and come to a new phase in your life.
You may find that you feel a newfound sense of freedom, happiness, and clarity. Throughout this period, you have opened your metaphorical eyes to the world. Here’s everything you need to know about this exceptional process and how meditation can support it.
What is a Spiritual Awakening?
Within the realms of Kundalini Yoga, we believe that this awakening is the time when the serpent at the base of your spine uncoils. As it does so, the serpent moves effortlessly up your body, weaving from side to side. While those who are not prepared for the spiritual awakening may find this overwhelming, it is a thing of real beauty.
As you practice Kundalini Yoga and learn countless technologies, you will find that you are ready for such an awakening. It is not an easy step. However, as you take it, you will feel a complete transformation rush throughout you. This shift is hard to describe, but it will shake up your outlook and how you view things.
Of course, it’s important to remember that not all spiritual awakenings look the same. Since each of us is an individual, you may find that the way you experience meditation and a spiritual awakening is different to other people. As with most things in life, your experiences will be unique to you and your specific pathway.
The Signs of a Spiritual Awakening
Now that you understand what a spiritual awakening is, let’s take a moment to delve into the signs of this cosmic shift. Should you believe it is happening to you, here are some of the things you should look out for:
- A newfound sense of connection to the Universe
- Enhanced intuition and unseen understanding
- A higher sense of compassion and empathy
- Inner peace and a heightened level of mindfulness
- Letting go of negative attachments (to people and things!)
Should you notice some of these signs of a spiritual awakening, you may be transforming. You could keep a journal to keep track of these signs as you note them. That way, you will deeply understand yourself.
