Spiritual Awakening

“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 a profound realization that your physical life is not the highest priority.

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. Prophets are believed to have been enlightened.

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


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


“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).
