When we think about a person who is in the process of spiritual awakening or enlightening, we may have a perception that they will leave their family, desert material possessions, donate everything and go to the Mountains or Ashram, meditate for days and months without eating. But this not what spiritual awakening is believed to look like in this day and age. Astrologically speaking, we are at entering the Age of Aquarius and this age is opening the world up to true equality, peace, love, brotherhood, freedom, spiritual awareness, kindness, compassion, rebels and rebellions, computerization, end of poverty. As we are entering this age, terms like kundalini awakening, chakra clearance, energy healing, shamanism way of treating disease are getting more common.
This is the time when we no longer focus on our identity, but accepting oneself as a whole person. We are ready to accept that we have knowledge and wisdom within ourselves. In an inner level we all are moving towards the process of self-awareness, self-improvement and promoting the practice of yoga, meditation, alternative healing, natural food etc. People are starting to look within to seek answers and many people are awakening spiritually. Also people in this age will be more into breaking free from The Matrix.
In a simple word, spiritual awakening is dissolving the illusion that we are separate from Oneness. But there is no certain way that triggers this awakening, it is different in every person. Some may be triggered by a critical life challenge like a chronic disease, loss of a loved one, depression, mid-life crisis, major relationship break ups, broken hearts. Also, it may trigger some people who follow meditation or practice yoga regularly.
If you are in the process of spiritual awakening then here are some of the habits which may be helpful:
· Spend more time in nature, maybe hiking into the woods, beach time, viewing sunset and sunrise, grounding to the earth by walking barefoot or spend some time gardening.
· Eat healthily, and taking care of the soul body and mind by doing exercise and being active is very important
· Learn to let go and not force this process because spiritual awakening is not a one-time thing, spirituality is the life long journey of self-growth.
· Acknowledge you are a spiritual being and practice prayer or meditation and live life with compassion and love.
