What Is A Spiritual Awakening?

What Is A
Spiritual Awakening?

Spiritual Awakening is often misinterpreted as attaining enlightenment spontaneously, and while for a few people that is the case, for the majority of us it is not. More often  it’s an ongoing experience in which we gradually “wake up” through the practice of Presence and meditation and in so doing discovering what our beliefs and childhood programming is, and usually having to experience and release any trauma we may have experienced in our lives. 

On occasion though we do experience ourselves as part of God and God as part of us and then do the “inner work” afterward as I did when I was taken in the Light one night during meditation and I knew that I was God and God was me. I discovered that I AM pure Awareness, Consciousness and Love in a vast ocean of energy that I call God.

Whether you experience it spontaneously or over time eventually we will all come to discover that we are that which experiences, but we are not the experience. We are the witness behind the experience. We are that part of God which is experiencing itself.. We are pure Awareness living in The Body Of God in Creation.

When we come into this state we see clearly that we are in God, and God in Us. There is no separation, nor is there a destination to reach. There is nothing to become. There is only the realization of that which IS.. and that we are part of the ALL THAT IS.

In the aftermath, we also realize that we are not our stories. WE are not our ego, or our beliefs, and we are not our pain or suffering. We may have experienced that, but we are NOT that.

The realization and experience of this is the first step to finding our way Home for many, if not most, and then the inner work begins. For others though, it is simple.. they have arrived. And for others yet, the inner work itself paves the way.

Everyone’s path is different, and everyone experiences Awakening somewhat differently. Some Awaken Spontaneously and they are in deep Stillness and Presence from that point onward. For most though, if there is an initial Opening into Oneness there is much work that has to be done. But regardless of whether an awakening event where one experiences themselves as God is happens or does’t happen, it still remains that we must become conscious of our stories and of our mind and our suppressed pain, and in so doing we become free. In this process, becoming conscious of our stories and pain and suffering will lead us home.

We cannot deny, or avoid, or get rid of our mind/ego or our pain. That is only ego wanting to avoid itself. Witnessing the stories we tell ourselves and others, and bringing awareness to every aspect of who we believe we are at the level of mind/ego will cause those things to fall away.

To bring Awareness to our stories is to bring Consciousness to them, and to bring Consciousness is to bring God.. and God is what you are.

So then the dance begins. You allow yourself to feel your pain when it arises. You do not try to stuff it or avoid it or fix it. Sit with it. Bring Consciousness to it. It is only trying to express itself. Allow yourself to feel, and your pain will dissipate and Joy and wholeness will follow.

As you go through this process you come to discover that it isn’t fatal, as your ego would have you believe. It is the way to freedom. It is the Way Home. It’s simple.. but not necessarily easy. When you do it you will find out.

Global Awakening

The world is currently experiencing an unprecedented shift in consciousness, and it is one that will carry us into a new understanding of who, and what we are. This shift will enable us to live to our full potential as Spiritual Beings having a human experience, and as we progress through it, we will eventually come to know and experience the Truth of our Being. In the end, we will come to live in a conscious way, and live in joy.

However, if we are to make the transition we need to have direction, and the best place to get that in my experience is from someone who has been there.

As this ‘Great Awakening’ happens, it is creating enormous upheavals in the old ways of being. Any energies that are not compatible with the new Consciousness will begin to collapse as we are now seeing all around us in our world today. This change is a necessary part of our move into the new consciousness, and there is nothing to fear.

The current paradigm is actually based in fear and has been so for thousands of years, and so it must change because we are shifting into a Heart Centered way of Being. We will also be coming to an understanding of our Oneness through direct experience.  We are all one, not only with each other.. but with the planet as a whole.

In this new way of Being, many are already beginning will live without fear, and are learning how to be at peace and without suffering, and are discovering how to live in joy. Our essential nature is Divine, and we are gradually discovering how to live consciously and experience a much simpler way of living than had previously been known.

The only reason we are not aware that we are part of God, or that we live in what I call “The Body Of God”, is because we do not live from our hearts. But that is all about to change.  We have all become hypnotized by the Collective Consciousness and what is sometimes called “tribal” or “race” beliefs along with it’s fear, selfishness, victimhood and limitations.  And we have been identified with our individual mind and our beliefs and stories. Essentially, we have lost, or forgotten our True Self and our origins.

This shift in consciousness is Life calling us back home. If you’re like most people on the planet today, you are probably feeling like the world has gone crazy and needs to change.. and you’re right. It has gone “crazy” because it is the human ego that is not heart connected, and that is rapidly shifting. In fact, at this very moment in human history, we have an opportunity to change like never before.

And, the truth is and has become increasingly obvious; we need to change because we cannot afford to keep going as we are. We are in the midst of a spiritual transition the likes of which have never been seen before. Life is calling us to hear and to respond, and you have heard the call or you wouldn’t be reading this right now. The change that we are needing in our lives and in the world begins within.

In order to heal the world, we absolutely MUST heal our lives, and to do that we have to change our thinking and beliefs, and reconnect to our hearts. Why? Because we live in a universe that responds to our energy, and our thoughts, beliefs and emotions ARE energy, and they create our reality. And, because we have been collectively creating what we are not experiencing in the world.

Quantum physics has shown us that the “physical” universe responds to our thoughts and expectations. It has also been shown that the world as we know it, at it’s most fundamental level, resembles thought energy more than it does anything else. Essentially, it IS a thought form. It is the Being we call God creating and re-creating the world over and over again at incredible speed. It is happening so quickly that we cannot see it unless we are in an awakened state, or measure it except at a quantum level. WE are responsible for creating the madness that is our world today, but fortunately.. we can change it! How? By aligning ourselves with our own Divinity, and working within ourselves to bring about inner change, which will result in a change in our lives and in the world. Nothing will change outwardly unless it is first changed on the inside.

The mind of man is the creator of our problems, and as Einstein said “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” And that also means from the same level of consciousness. So then if falls upon us. If we are going to have a different world, then we must change ourselves first. The only way that our world is changed from that of what the Divine would have us experience, is through our own intention to return to and experience our own Divine Nature.

Most people want happier and more meaningful lives. We want to live without the stresses caused by the world we have created for ourselves, especially in Western society. And most people want their lives to count for something. We all share in common a desire to leave the world a better place than we found it. But that doesn’t often happen. We get caught up in the struggles of our lives and in our stories and our judgments and beliefs, and then the universe creates according to the energy we are putting out. It has no choice.. it is the Law.

So we ultimately create our lives, and a world that we do not want because we spend much of our time focusing on things we don’t want, and we have beliefs that are not true are they are often running the show on a subconscious level. It is therefore imperative that we turn our lives around and begin make changes today, both in ourselves and in our world. Ghandi once said “Be the change you want to see in the world”. This is what is necessary for us all. If we want the world to change, we must make that change within first.

As I said earlier, there has never been a time like this on the planet earth before.. and we are in the midst of an unprecedented opportunity for change. Miracles are literally taking place in people’s lives the world over. Instantaneous healing of long held patterns is happening, spontaneous healing of disease is happening, and even spontaneous Spiritual Awakening.. such as has happened to me. I experienced a profound spiritual awakening and realized the Truth of our Being.

Our human family is a single Consciousness that appears to be individual, and the earth is part of that Consciousness. We are living in The Body Of God In Creation but we do not know it because of our minds.. and that Body is the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Life wants to Awaken.. this much I know for certain.. and it needs for us to heed the call and to make the change. So when you take that first step, your life begins to change radically.
