My own Spiritual Awakening was the most sacred experience of my life. Looking back, I was unaware that I was in the process of having one until about a year later, after my consciousness had clearly shifted, which prompted me to seek out what was happening to me. I no longer experienced reality the same way that I had for the 37 years of my life up until that point. It was very hard for me to articulate my experience into words, and it still is. ( I promise I will do my best!)

My perception of time/space reality has clearly undergone a shift. Life as I knew it would never be the same.

We don’t get to decide if/when we are going to spiritually awaken. Not everyone is meant to do so in this lifetime. If it is a part of your journey, it will happen in divine timing, when your soul is ready to emerge out of hiding.

Experiencing a loss is a very common catalyst of a Spiritual Awakening- you may have lost a loved one, a job, a relationship...other times, a personal health scare can open one up to an expanded consciousness and a broader perspective of reality.

It is important to keep in mind that while Love/Light is one part of Awakening, there is also a great deal of discomfort and neccesary pain that arises. This is because everything is dualistic in nature- it is the Yin and Yang of Universal Law. An Awakening allows us to see the light at the end of the tunnel - but it requires us to battle our own demons - to take responsibility for our role in attracting people and experiences into our lives. To integrate our SHADOW self. This is a term coined by Psychologist Carl Jung which indicates the disowned parts of ourself that have been repressed. In order to come into a state of balance and wholeness, one must integrate both the LIGHT AND the DARK aspects of themselves. To avoid all parts of self would be Spiritual Bypassing. In order to fully heal -There is no getting around this :)

Here are a few signs that you may be experiencing a Spiritual Awakening.

  • You deeply feel the interconnectedness of the universe - you may feel an especially strong calling towards animals and nature.

  • You are experiencing high levels of empathy and compassion for others- you are able to put yourself in another persons shoes and are less judgemental of other people.

  • You have lost interest in hobbies/habits from your 'old life'- you may no longer resonate with certain friends. Relationships may begin falling out of your life. ( don't worry - new ones that are more aligned to the 'new' you are on the way! The universe is making space for them.)

  • You may be seeking your Lifes Purpose- your old job/career may no longer bring you joy and fullfillment. You may have a deep desire to be of service to others.

  • You may experience a 'thinning of the veil.' You are able to see through illusions that you were previously hypontised by. You may feel 'repulsed' by fakeness. You crave authenticity and seeking truth.

  • You may have a heightened awareness of your own and other peoples energetic fields. You can pick up on 'vibes' stronger than ever. This is because your consciousness is shifting, and you are beginning to tune in less to the physical realm, and more to the subtle energy realms.

  • You may feel a strong pull towards anything related to Personal Development, as well as Metaphysical teachings. Your awareness is expanding, and your own personal growth becomes your number one priority.

  • You have a newfound appreciation for solitude. You genuinely enjoy your alone time, and would rather stay home and take a bubble bath, read a book cozied up with a cop of hot tea, or go on a walk alone in nature, than spend the night out at a club or noisy bar. This is because you are shifting from seeking external validation. You are your own best friend and you enjoy spending time with yourself.

  • Your fear of death is diminishing. You understand that energy can not be created nor destroyed - it simply changes form.

  • You may experience an increase in synchronicities aka 'meaningful coincidences' ( seeing repeating numbers, divine messages from the universe).

  • You understand that your thoughts create your reality. You may have stumbled on information regarding Law of Attraction and Manifesting, which you resonated with.

  • You are taking personal responsibility for your life. You are moving into an EMPOWERED state and moving away from having victim mentality.

A Spiritual Awakening is truly is a gift and happens in divine timing at the exact moment your soul is ready for it. It connects you to your spiritual nature, and allows you to experience your God self - the highest version of yourself that you incarnated on Earth to embody. It frees you from all of your past shackles- your limiting beliefs, feeling unworthy, lower density emotions, your traumas and past programming....It is a process that does not happen overnight- it is a JOURNEY- a beautiful metamorphisis into the colorful, vibrant butterfly you came here to be. Once you work through your own inner shadows, you will finally be able to receive all of the blessings the universe has been waiting to deliver you.

Love you, XO Rachel
