Spiritual Awakening


Signs of spiritual awakening can begin to emerge during traumatic life events. It will begin to feel like you have some mystical force aiding you in your journey. Psychic abilities may develop. Similarly, you could feel the presence of a benevolent being.

Although some people experience trauma without awakening, spiritual enlightenment can save us from suffering.

Pathways to experience spiritual awakening are described below. If you would like help from a certified yoga, kundalini, and meditation professional, please use the link below to.

Definition

“Spiritual awakening involves shifts in consciousness, from identifying with the physical body to recognizing a deeper connection with your soul, the divine or the universe.” – Timothy Burgin

What is Awakening?

A spiritual awakening is an ethereal, profound experience that empowers you to fully understand and integrate this truth: our physical life and existence is not everything. Your identity and your existence are determined by the spiritual world.

We are all a part of something powerfully blissful: God, Source, Truth, Nature, and Science. You can begin to feel and experience this when you enter the state of samadhi in yoga.

Is a spiritual awakening the same thing as enlightenment?

A spiritual awakening is not the same thing as enlightenment. Enlightenment refers to absolute or total understanding. You could say that with each thing you learn, you are becoming more and more enlightened, but a state of total enlightenment would make you an all-knowing being. Only Prophets are enlightened, but the average person can still move towards enlightenment.

While a spiritual awakening may be one of the first steps to enlightenment, it is not the same thing. A spiritual awakening is part of the path to enlightenment, if you believe that the average person can become enlightened at all.

Move Towards Enlightenment

Enlightenment

“…Used only in figurative sense, of spiritual enlightenment…”
– from the Online Etymology Dictionary

Yoga

“The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’, meaning ‘to join’ or ‘to yoke’ or ‘to unite’”

Dr. Ishwar V. Basavaraddi

Yoga for Enlightenment

Yoga is perhaps the one and only path to enlightenment, but this does not mean you need to put on tight pants and head to the gym.

Yoga has eight limbs: Yama, Niyama, Āsana, Prānāyāma, Pratyāhāra, Dhāranā, Dhyāna, and Samādhi

What this means is observances, ethics, physical postures, energy, removal of distractions, concentration, meditation, and achieving complete oneness are all a part of yoga.

In addition to this, there are many different kinds of yoga. Devotional or Bhakti yoga refers to prayer and worship. Karma yoga encompasses charity and other selfless acts.

Yoga teachings can help one understand and overcome all of the different obstacles in the path of spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and Nirvana or Samādhi. Emotional obstacles, like being broken hearted, are certainly encompassed in these obstacles and hinderances (also referred to as kleshas).

One observance of yoga is self-study. This is not just about knowing your astrological chart, but it is also about reading spiritual texts (preferably every day).
