An awakening marks a distinct change in the way an individual perceives the world. As the shift is so dramatic, it can be a very confusing time.
Let’s start by defining an awakening and what it isn’t. An awakening marks a distinct change in the way an individual perceives the world. As the shift is so dramatic… it can be confused with full enlightenment as we try and work out what’s happening. Generally speaking this is not the case. Speaking from personal experience, and based on conversations with hundreds of people who have experienced an awakening, this is the start of a new life, the start of our spiritual path.
The early stages of an awakening are a very delicate time for all of us. Particularly if we don’t have a support structure or someone to turn to for guidance, help or answers. Often, we have to turn to the internet, which is a minefield when approaching this subject. There are so many opinions, ideas, and suggestions about what to do. How are we to know what to do for the best? We have no reference frame to help us. How are we supposed to know which information to trust? And what information to ignore? I believe I can help with this. I would never ask anyone just to trust what I say, I will provide well researched and reliable sources. I always encourage personal research. I want people to be self-reliant and to ask questions. Asking questions and checking for reliable sources is part of the growth process I use. I encourage others to do the same.
On top of the above I will demonstrate techniques you can test. There are some simple exercises and techniques any of us can do.
An awakening can often be misunderstood, especially by the person going through it! The change in worldview is so dramatic, our ego or sense of self can try and understand it as full enlightenment. How are we supposed to know, it normally marks the start of something new. Rather than thinking of it as enlightenment, it is much better to think of an awakening as the start of a new journey. You could also think of it as the first day at a new college or university, with far more to learn about on the path ahead.
