Am I spiritually awakened? How do I know? What are Signs?

April 3, 2008

The reality is, not everyone is spiritually awakened or aware of the highest purpose of self in life. As we continue mundane tasks on a daily basis without question, any attempt to resist dogma usually comes with the usual disapproval. However, for those that have managed to break free from monotony and dared to question with absolutely no fear, it will be to no surprise that answers are available. It’s easy to point out that skeptics still remain unaware of the matrix and constantly battle themselves to prove otherwise. Unfortunately they don’t realize that every battle fought is part of an inner war against acceptance of themselves.

The following terms bear similar meaning with reference to spiritual awakening:
Awakening, Awareness, Conscious, Rising of the Kundalini, Escaping the Matrix, Realization or Enlightenment.

 

~what does it feel like to be spiritually awakened or enlightened?~
In all cases whether you are a believer of a higher power or not, there comes a time in your life when certain events absolutely convince you to realize otherwise. This is where you are on the verge of a complete spiritual awakening. A lot many strengthen their belief in the traditional version of a separate ‘God’, but for those who believe that there is more to this, read on. 

Everyone’s experience of a spiritual awakening is different. Some talk about tingling sensations, some have visions, some fall into trance, some see signs, but it’s very normal when nothing happens except a surge to know more about yourself, life and eternal meaning. Spiritual awakening is nothing but knowing through your own experience that there is more to you and your association with the universal consciousness than you’ve been taught by dogma. This is a very personal experience and not everyone understands it. Also, the signs of awakening to me could be a regular itch in the butt for you. Everyone has a different experience altogether.

 

 

 

~the other end of the spiritual awakening tunnel~
If you are impatient to know what the other end is like, you will be in for a bit of a surprise. To be spiritually awakened and active leaves you in a state of giving instead of wanting, a state of peace where your mind is relaxed and secured. By this time you would have realized what unconditional love is; you will find your true inner self and your purpose in this universe, specifically this lifetime. You will understand & accept that life is planned and not as uncertain as you once thought it to be. You develop strong qualities of kindness, compassion, empathy & acceptance. You help more, you care more, you appreciate more and you wish for nothing in return. Incidentally, all that you need will fall into your lap as you work your way to help others. Some grow out of the 5 physical senses and become truly multi sensory leading to astral projection and exploration of parallel universes, after life, past life, etc while the rest live grounded in the physical universe helping everyone local. This is something that I’ve been focusing on doing in a non intrusive way. Over time you will find your true purpose and the way in which it unveils. Hang in there.

 

~what are signs in the spiritual sense?~
I’m referring to signs from the meta-physical world that continue to re-affirm us as we glide on our karmic path (your destined path). Some consider signs are random events that we connect to make ourselves feel better, but a true spiritualist sees these as confirmations and assurances of successful karmas. It starts off as subtle messages from your spirit guardians or angels in the form of thoughts. These thoughts bring focus on a specific event with relevance to your personal life. I’ve had interesting experiences where even a word in a message suddenly stands out to relate to something close to my heart. Some signs are re-occurence of numbers, events, names, people etc. Signs come in various ways and will only make itself obvious when you least expect it. Apart from personal experience, I would suggest to watch the movie ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ and the part where the bird in the house poops on the main actress Diane Lane (Frances). This was a sign to the owner that Frances was the right person to sell the house to. There have been plenty such events in my life to reassure me of the concept, but when I constantly look out for them, they do not show up! Patience is a virtue.

 

~events occurring twice~
Another part of the enlightenment process that was quite visible to me was the experience that certain very specific events occur twice. I haven’t been able to understand it completely, but I have a good feeling that its related to reversing karma in a way to re-experience it all over again. To me, its like a second chance to relive it and do it right. I remembered the movie “Click” and the Universal Remote, and how Adam Sandler gets his second chance. Figuring this one out is going to take a while.

And as always in the words of Buddha,
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
