Spiritual Awakening - The Stages of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakenings don't happen all at once. Instead, they occur over time as part of an evolutionary process and don't always take the form of any specific religious belief system or practice. Instead, spiritual awakenings usually come about following an emotional or spiritual crisis or transformative experience such as relationship dissolution, illness or sudden life change that spark it all off.

Spiritual awakening often begins with what's known as "The Dark Night of the Soul." During this phase, feelings of isolation, fear, and confusion often occur as everything you previously believed may no longer seem accurate. At this point, many begin questioning their current beliefs, searching for alternative religions or philosophies to understand their new perspectives better.

As with any significant shift, resistance and surrender are both part of the journey. While you might experience moments of clarity or enlightenment, these usually don't last very long due to an active ego and difficulty letting go of old beliefs due to such profound change.

Once you've experienced the dark night of the soul, the second stage of spiritual awakening involves integration and stabilization. At this point, it becomes apparent that most meaningful spiritual experiences come from living in the moment and accepting what's happening now as being for your own good; connecting with something greater than yourself; finding answers to life's questions that remain.
