Sometimes it hits you hard and fast: the realization that you are not simply a human being having a spiritual experience, but a spiritual being having a human experience. Sometimes it comes in like a quiet whisper: the inner stirrings of wanting to live more authentically.
Waking up is not easy. When you start recognizing the cracks in the walls of life as we once knew it, you know you can’t go back but you’re not sure how to go forward. Nothing seems to make sense or fit anymore. You feel uneasy with yourself, or others, your life seems strange almost – like you need to make some changes and you’re not sure how.
No two experiences are the same, but there are some common themes I’ve seen in people awakening. Possible signs you may be experiencing a spiritual awakening:
- awareness of bad habits, old patterns that are played out and wreaking havoc on your life
- feeling the need to be alone, make new friends/relationships
- sudden awareness of what doesn’t resonate with you
- growing distaste for superficial experiences, feeling of disillusionment
- your regular job no longer satisfies you: you’re feeling called to live your passion & serve with purpose
- experiences of synchronicity
- feelings of uncertainty or fear
- increased awareness of energy & its impact on your feelings/experience
- desire to become more healthy, eat better, feel better, be present in your body
- feeling the need to find out who you really are
- desiring spiritual experiences that connect you to yourself & the web of life
While beautiful and somewhat mysterious, spiritual awakening can be overwhelming at times! You’re looking at your whole life differently, and you’re feeling like you need to make some changes but you’re not sure where to begin. You feel lonely in this process because sometimes there just aren’t words for what you’re feeling.
Long before I knew I wanted to walk the shamanic path, I started waking up and realizing things were different. I didn’t know exactly why, or how, but even my experience of time felt different. I felt like I could no longer call upon what I felt made me who I was. I had to relearn myself, in a deeper and more authentic way. I began to pull back the layers of protection that I’d built up over a lifetime of painful or challenging events. As I sorted through these old memories with new awareness, they began to feel neutralized. I no longer identified with the painfulness and grew to appreciate the person they pushed me to become.
I knew I had a responsibility to myself to create the life I wanted to see and to be the very best person I could be. To me, being the best person I can be means living with compassion and respect for all beings, regardless of perceived differences. In essence, we are all souls seeking our purpose. The roads we take in life will differ from others and that is beautiful! We are all part of a massively diverse tapestry and how we weave is entirely up to us. There are no exceptions to this. Every single being is a spiritual being, greater than this life. Eternal, beautiful, whole light. Our journey to realizing and remembering the whole light that we are – and always were – is spiritual awakening.
I’ve met many beautiful souls on this journey of (true) self-realization. I’ve naturally taken to helping friends and family going through this process, assisting them on their path of accessing their inner wisdom. I have deep reverence for the sacred walk we all make in our lives and the many roads we take. I have felt the call to serve with purpose and compassion.
That’s why I am super excited to announce…
