Have you ever felt "There has to be more to life"? Have you ever felt a longing for a life of purpose and meaning? When you are experience a spiritual awakening these are questions you might often ask yourself. Sometimes during this time we can also find ourselves feeling alone, isolated, confused and directionless. We all have a journey on our path to enlightenment filled with lessons and blessings. Each one put in our lives to ascend us into higher consciousness. This is a truly amazing thing, however as we shed our old ways and unlearn false beliefs, it can be scary and uncomfortable. Overcoming fear of the unknown, and learning to trust, is a lesson most of us need to learn on our journey.
1. The need to be alone
When you begin a spiritual awakening, many feel the need to be alone. Spending time alone gives you time to ponder your thoughts and sort through feelings. Many who experience a spiritual awakening will be very sensitive to the energy of others, therefore being around negative people with a lower vibration will feel bad. It is hard at first to discern your energy from the energy of others. When you are alone you will only have to deal with your own energy. Don't worry this won't be forever, just until you adjust to the energy of others. Being alone also gives you the opportunity to meditate. Meditation helps us to get insights about what our next step should be on our journey. It helps you to go within, and raises your vibration. When you have a higher vibration you will feel better, and things will magically unfold.
2. You feel totally lost
When starting on your spiritual journey, sometimes you will feel like something is missing from your life, but you don't know exactly what it is. The things that were important to you in the past will change. You will feel like the people in your life don't understand you, or don't think the way you do. This can make you feel lost and alone. You will begin to search for people and relationships that have a deeper meaning, and be drawn to like minded people. This is temporary, and soon people and places will be presented to you that are meant to advance you on your spiritual path. You will soon feel more comfortable in your own skin, and that your life has a greater purpose.
3. You begin to outgrow people or places
As you become more spiritually enlightened, you will vibrate at a higher level. You will begin to outgrow people and places that vibrate at a lower level. Not everyone that started with you on your journey in life will finish with you, and thats okay. Wish them well, learn the lessons they were meant to teach you, and move on. Your inner peace will become sacred. Your friend's dramas, and conflict of any kind will not interest you, and make you feel uncomfortable. The universe has a way of sending new people and places, that serve your higher purpose.
4. You experience synchronicities
There is no such thing as coincidence. You are going to begin to experience events and especially psychic events that are meant as signs that you are on the right path. You will soon find yourself in situations where you will be magically be "at the right place and the right time". Thoughts and visions will become realities when you learn how to decipher the signs your spirit guides send to you. The right people and places will be placed in your path to help you along the way. Trust that everything happens for a reason good or bad, and will make room for the things that are right for you.
5. The need to be your authentic self
You will begin to see through the superficial things in life that are an illusion. You will feel less of a need to put on heirs for people, or to impress them. You will have a mindset that as long as your actions come from a place of love and compassion, you won't care what people think of you. You will distance yourself from those that you can't be yourself around, and your intuition will let you know who is genuine. Living your truth and trusting your journey will be your main priority, and you begin to let go of ego based thought. Every person has special qualities that make them unique. You will begin to realize and embrace the special qualities you posses that can make a difference in the world, and in other peoples lives.
