When most think of getting in touch with their spiritual side, they perceive it as a peaceful, calming experience. Everything lines up with almost cosmic precision, and you become enlightened overnight.
The reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Like the lightning-struck, crumbling Tower of the Tarot, spiritual awakenings can be messy and often painful.
However, despite the initial struggles, it will be worth it. Here’s how you can spark your awakening, as well as some signs that you’re experiencing one already.
How to Spark Spiritual Awakenings
Attempting to spark a spiritual awakening in yourself is like the antihero leaping at the hero’s call in fiction. That is to say, spiritual awakenings are less something that you spark on your own and more something that you stumble into. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t make yourself ready to receive an awakening.
Making Ready for Your Awakening
If you want to start your journey into your spiritual awakening, but need guidance on how to be spiritual, fear not. Below are some of the many ways you can make your mind, body, and soul ready for your awakening.
- Declutter your mind and space to allow free thought
- Step outside your comfort zone, and step into the outside world
- Take time for self-care and self-reflection
- Let go of that which no longer serves you
By following these tips, you make your mind and soul ready to receive your awakening. After all, you can call upon the Universe’s energies all you want. But, if you’re deaf to its message, then nothing will come of it.
Signs You’re Experiencing an Awakening
There are many signs, both physical and energetic, that you’re entering your spiritual awakening. Here are some of the key ones you should watch for:
Life Pattern Recognition
If you’ve started noticing patterns in your behavior or life, you may be awakening. Awakened people have greater self-awareness, so you may find yourself noticing more themes and repetition. You’ll question why you needed creature comforts you once couldn’t go without, or why you repeat the behaviors of your parents.
Game of Thrones videos come up in your recommendations on YouTube or reruns come up on your TV. Your co-worker shows you their dragon symbol tattoo. You start seeing dragons in every piece of media you consume. Why does this keep happening?
It could be a simple coincidence, or it could be a sign that something related to dragons is reaching out to you. Whether that’s a Draconic being or finding a new roleplaying group is up to the Universe to decide.
Death Holds Less Fear
A final sign that you’re nearing your spiritual awakening is that death scares you less. Those with the sagest wisdom about how to be spiritual no longer live with regrets of their past or anxiety over a lost future.
The Spiritual World Is Nothing to Fear
Spiritual awakenings can be a difficult process, but they are nothing to fear. No matter how painful the awakening, you’ll find greater inner peace once it’s complete. If you need some tips for becoming spiritual, check out our blog each day for more information.
