Have you ever wondered what it means to be spiritually awake? If you have, then you are not alone. In fact, spiritual awakening is a topic that has intrigued people for centuries. While there is no definitive answer to this question, there are generally agreed-upon stages of spiritual awakening.
Here we will explore these seven stages in-depth and give you some tips on how to succeed at each stage.
A Very Brief History of Mankind
Sometimes it helps us understand our lives by seeing the bigger picture. In the beginning, this world was perfect and beautiful in every way and so were we. We were Spirits sent by God to create and experience and enjoy. We created a physical experience and inhabited bodies. To do this we had to slow our vibrations. In slowing our vibrations we became heavy. Over time we became so heavy we forgot who we were and where we came from. We forgot God. We discovered fear. Fear is the polar opposite of God’s love.
God’s promise was to never let us go so far away from Him that we couldn’t find our way back. In the last century we ‘bottomed out’ so to speak. We exploded nuclear weapons which not only created havoc for our world but started to contaminate the cosmos and other worlds. That was the limit. God sent Angels, Masters, and off-world beings to enlighten us and start us on the journey back.
We are in a time of re-awakening and remembering – realizing your full potential. We have begun to increase the speed of our vibrations and ‘lighten up. Our intuitive natures, which were never properly nurtured and had become dormant were being given the call to come back into use.
That is our challenge and our responsibility right now. Learn all you can about who you are and what you can do. Start to practice using your intuitive abilities so that they regain their strength and you can start realizing your full potential. The world is poised for an ascension – an uplifting.
That will show itself in a society that cares deeply about one another and would never do harm to any living creature. We aren’t there yet. We are on our way. You are an irreplaceable part of the whole and are being called into service to carry your share of the load. You must care deeply about everyone else and never hurt any living creature, either physically, emotionally or mentally.
A big challenge? Perhaps.
But you have what it takes and what you feel you lack, God will supply.
The 7 Stages of Spiritual Awakening
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to achieve spiritual enlightenment? Contemplating such a feat can be daunting, but don’t worry—we’re here to help. To make the journey as smooth as possible, we’ve mapped out the seven stages of spiritual awakening.
So buckle up, and let’s get started!
Stage One: Initial Stirrings
You may feel restless or unfulfilled, and you may start to yearn for something more. This is a normal and essential part of the journey, so don’t despair—help is on the way!
This is also when you begin to question your life choices and start to feel lost and disconnected from the world around you. It can be a very painful and confusing time, but it is necessary for growth. During this stage, it is important to be gentle with yourself and to seek out guidance from those who have gone before you.
Stage Two: seeking guidance
In the second stage of spiritual awakening, you begin to seek out guidance from those who have gone before you. You may read books on spirituality or self-help, or you may look for a teacher or guru who can help you find your way. This is a necessary step in your spiritual healing journey, as it helps you gain clarity about what you’re looking for and why.
Remember, there are many paths to enlightenment, so trust your intuition and go with the one that feels right for you.
This stage is also when you begin to open your heart. You start to see beauty in the world again and feel more connected to others. You may also begin to feel more love and compassion for yourself and others. It can be a wonderful time, but it can also be challenging as you learn to let go of old hurts and resentments.
Stage Three: Surrendering the Ego
The third stage of spiritual awakening is when you start to let go of your ego. This is when you realize that your ego has been running your life and that it is time to let go of control. This can be a difficult process, but it is essential for further growth.
After all, how can you truly connect with others if your ego is always in the way?
Here is when the false self begins to dissolve. This is when you start to see through the illusions that your ego has created and realize that they are not real. This can be a very liberating experience, but it can also be scary as you realize just how much your ego has been controlling your life.
Stage Four: openings and breakthroughs
Once the ego is slowly being dissolved, you will begin to experience openings and breakthroughs. These are moments when you feel a deeper connection to the Universe and a sense of peace and joy. They may be fleeting at first, but they will become more frequent and longer-lasting as you continue on your journey.
Now, this is likely the most difficult stage since the ego starts to fight back for its own existence. Realise that these are all illusions and that, the more difficult it gets, the more you know you are in the right path.
Stage Five: integration
In the fifth stage of spiritual awakening, you begin to integrate the new insights and perspectives that you’ve gained into your everyday life. This can be a challenge at times, as old patterns and habits die hard.
But persevere—the rewards are worth it! Even though others will definitely not understand you, this is your journey only – and no one else’s. Sure, it can be lonely but ultimately this is for our own good.
Here you may also begin to feel a sense of reunion with the Divine. This is when you realize that there is something much greater than yourself at work in the world and that you are connected to it. This can be a very powerful experience, but it can also be humbling as you realize just how small and insignificant your ego really is.
Stage Six: Refinement
As you enter the sixth stage of spiritual awakening, your insights and perspectives begin to refine themselves. You start to see things more clearly and come to a deeper understanding of who you are and what your purpose is in this life.
You could call it a continuation (or extension) of the previous stage and things begin to change quickly. It’s not easy to continue because we are by our natures creatures of the ego. Dissolving it can be a liberating, but painful experience.
Stage Seven: Enlightenment
Here’s the final stage of your spiritual healing journey – a complete realization and union with God. In this final stage of spiritual awakening, all veils are removed and you come to a complete realization of who you are—a divine being having a human experience. At this point, there is nothing left to do but bask in the glory of God and live your life accordingly as a powerful lightworker.
The sixth stage of spiritual awakening is often referred to as enlightenment. This is when you have a direct experience of the Divine or Ultimate Reality. This can be a life-changing experience, but it can also be confusing as you try to make sense of what you have seen and felt.
This is when you take all that you have experienced during the previous stages and integrate it into your everyday life. This can be a challenge, but it is necessary in order to live an authentic spiritual life.
Though you may live a normal life, inside you are a completely different person.
So there you have it—a complete roadmap to spiritual awakening. Of course, it all sounds much easier than it actually is. The truth is the road to enlightenment is endless. Once a stage is crossed, you immediately go to the next one, and once you reach enlightenment sometimes you can go back to these 7 stages of spiritual awakening again in order to refine yourself even more.
We hope these insights have been helpful to you on your own spiritual healing path. Remember, there is no one right way to achieve enlightenment—trust your intuition and go with whatever feels right for you. And most importantly, don’t forget to enjoy the ride!
Conclusion: These are the seven stages of spiritual awakening. While every person’s journey will be unique, these stages provide a general map for understanding the process. Just remember that there are no “rights” or “wrongs” when it comes to spirituality—only what works for YOU . So trust your intuition, stay open-minded, and enjoy the ride!
