When Your Spiritual Awakening No Longer Matters

The subject of this spiritual blog post may seem surprising, but it's a reality for some people. For those who really dissolve away into spaciousness and love, spiritual awakening no longer matters. It simply becomes a past moment that was a gateway to other moments. Kinda like birth.

Being born into our human existence was a really big moment for all of us, but it is not something we rank particularly highly anymore once we're here. When we're here, growth becomes everything as we mature into fully functional human beings that can take care of ourselves. In this way, spiritual awakening is similar. The first few years after awakening are often dominated by a drive towards a new equilibrium where we can function from a place of deeper maturity and clarity.

However, unlike the growth of our bodies, moving into deeper states of clarity is not assured. Many people can and do successful fight this inner change, and others partially embrace the inner shifts that arise. This can lead to very strange understandings of truth because of how the idea of truth can be twisted together with human blindspots and pain.

But those of you who do really embrace it, you may find that your spiritual awakening is starting to or no longer matter, and I felt like writing a little bit about that today.

Feeling Alienated After Awakening

One of the common feelings people have after a spiritual awakening is of being alienated from other people in their life. Well, usually, this experience comes after any blissful experience that may have arisen.

For many people at the very outset of a spiritual awakening, they have a bliss phase, which ultimately does not last. No human experience lasts. As they come out of that particular experience, they suddenly notice that most people aren't remotely interested in changing behaviors to be in alignment with love and truth, and some people don't even like the fact that you're changing to be in alignment with such things. This can feel quite alienating.

For others who are walking the conscious path and haven't awakened, the gradual stepping away from old unhealthy patterns creates the same type of situation. For as kind as you can be, many people don't want to accept you as a new person, and so you may find yourself far more friendless than you would have expected.

The root of the issue in both scenarios is basically the same and where you might expect it: it's in the ego. So today, I'd like to talk about facing this feeling of alienation and letting go into the deeper space of oneness where all is embraced and no one is alien from another.

Using Intuition to Make Stressful Decisions

I've spent more than a minute talking about intuition on this spiritual awakening blog. You can find several of those posts in the following compilation to help you in your development of your intuition:

Intuition: A Short Guide to Improving Your Inner Knowing

Eventually, though, life will probably give you a situation or two where you have to make a snap decision or a choice under highly stressful circumstances, and you don't have time to ruminate, contemplate, and meditate to unwind ego programming from your divine knowing. You're just going to have to make a choice. As many of you know, your divine knowing is way better at finding the most truthful path through a situation than that old, rusty ego self full of its illusions, lies, and fears. In times of emergency, disaster, or otherwise higher stress moment, the stakes are often extremely high sometimes impacting your long-term health or safety. Clearly, making an intuitive decision is ideal.

But how do you do this when you are really stressed, upset, or even terrified? Let's talk about it.

Unwriting Family Beliefs and Behavior Patterns

At some point, you have to reckon with your behavioral patterns and beliefs from childhood. For most people, that means dealing with their family issues.

In many respects, people are dealing with family issues from day one of their spiritual journeys. That is because if you were raised in a family situation, then you created a whole lot of invisible and unconscious beliefs by following what your family was doing. If you didn't have a family growing up, you still absorbed a lot of ideas and copied a lot of patterns from the people around you at the time. Any way you look at it, you're going to end up doing a lot of spiritual work on the stuff that happened and got learned when you were young because all of that forms your mental and emotional foundation. That foundation dictated to you most of what you thought was possible to do or be, and the levels of your life all got built off it. Now, it's time to take down the "family house."

Webinar: Unmasking the Need for Safety

The need for safety is a topic that comes up repeatedly for people on the spiritual path. They want emotional safety, financial safety, and of course physical safety. There's even a search for some kind of spiritual safety, although what that may mean varies widely by person.

This drive for safety tends to have enormous amounts of fear in it, and as such, it often cause us to feel more unsafe than otherwise. But let's take some time together to really look at this need for safety, and let's ask ourselves a couple questions:

What is safety?

Why do we need it?

What are all the ways we try to get it and how do those actions make us feel?

Whenever we can put a need under the microscope, some surprising realizations can emerge. I encourage you to register below to join me on this journey, and let's find out what we discover together about the human need for safety.

Becoming a Phoenix Rising After Your Spiritual Awakening

In my most recent blog post, I talked about the potential outcomes of neglecting, avoiding, or ignoring a spiritual awakening. Today, I'd like to go in the opposite direction and talk about what can arise when you embrace your awakening in the metaphor of the phoenix.

For those who are unfamiliar with this myth, the phoenix is a mythical bird that dies and is reborn again and again. We can let go of an old identity and emerge renewed.

When someone awakens, the dying has begun. Most people confuse the initial parts of a spiritual awakening as the end of all pain, especially if there's a bliss phase. But for most people, a spiritual awakening is the start of the dying. It's the start of the fiery crash-landing that the phoenix does. It is not yet the re-emergence. This can sound strange, and for the ego-self that is still intact, this sounds quite scary. But there are lots of pain and unhealthy patterns that need to be illuminated, and all of this is accessible for you.

Through embracing this shift, you begin to grow. You begin to arise. You become this magnificent being arising from the ashes full of light and beauty undimmed. But what does this mean in the human world? Let me talk about that today.

After the Night, the Dawn's Fire Emerges
