I’m grateful for waking up spiritually! This one was a long journey for me. I grew up with very confusing beliefs about what it meant to live a spiritual life. There were so many mixed messages that confused love with fear, abundance with lack, and peace with separation. I went through some very dark times as a result. My shame and guilt for being human kept me from KNOWING love for what it truly is. Just thinking about those days brings tears to my eyes. But without those days, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m grateful for all the experiences, thoughts, beliefs, and people along the way that have helped me to WAKE UP to my spirituality.
My experiences make my spiritual journey what it is. Each person’s is going to look different. I’m not here to judge anyone else’s spirituality or their journeys. The only person’s spirituality I’m responsible and accountable for is my own. I embraced the journey of waking up even though some parts of the process were challenging and painful. The journey of staying awake definitely takes daily work. I still have some old embedded beliefs that come to the surface from time to time, but now I’m more equipped to let those old ideas pass without much chaos.
I love my faith, belief, and trust I have because of where my spirituality has taken me. I’m reminded daily that I’m protected in the most amazing love there is. When I let myself sit in that energy, I tingle all over and feel an inner expansion beyond description.
Today, I commit to igniting my spiritual awareness. Whenever I align with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, I’ve stopped paying attention to my relationship with the Divine Source. The Divine does not live in the energy of fear, lack, and separation because the Source is pure love, so to ignite my spiritual awareness, it’s only possible if I am aligned with love, abundance, and peace. Even if it is only for the moment I’m experiencing it. I can move in and out of the energy. The more I practice consciously aligning, the longer I stay.
When I’m in my spiritual awareness, I see and feel signs physically, emotionally, and creatively that I’m there. How it looks and feels to me may be different than how it does for you. The feeling of AWE is one of my easiest doorways into experiencing my relationship with God on a more intimate level. I write about AWE a lot. It’s such an essential piece of my spiritual journey.
One of the ways I love igniting my spiritual awareness:
- Put on meditation music
- Do a short meditation to quiet my mind
- Get out my notebook
- Close my eyes with my pen in hand
- Write out a question like, “What is important for me to know right now on my spiritual journey?”
- Set timer for a minimum of 15 minutes and start free-writing, which means no going back and no editing
Some of the most amazing and profound things are revealed here. To follow, I tend to see how what I wrote comes alive in my experiences. It’s pretty wild how it works. I’ve committed to myself to have an open relationship with God. I don’t limit my time and/or communication to any specific practices. I do truly feel the Divine everywhere and in every experience as long as I make the choice to stay open and awake.
When I need help moving out of the energy of fear, lack, and separation, I ask the Source for help. Just me calling awareness to the energy helps me release the power I’ve given it over my thoughts and opens me up to receive Divine wisdom.
