My spiritual awakening began around 2019. Since then, I have
experienced a kundalini awakening, a heart awakening, and a sexual awakening. Prior
to this experience, I didn’t even know that such awakenings existed. And
because of that, the pandemic, and breast cancer, I have largely experienced
this deep transformation in seclusion.
I learned how to navigate these changes on my own and with
little outside influence. I allowed myself to be guided by Spirit. We co-created
my entire spiritual awakening. In that I developed strategies to help me move
through this spiritual path with ease and grace. I’m sharing some of those
strategies in the post in the form of tips and advice. May they be of service
to you on your path.
1. Quiet Your Inner Critic – None of
that yammering, ruminating, and overall noise pollution is helping. When our
inner critic is loud, we can’t hear our own quiet inner voices. Healing begins
with quieting our minds enough to hear the whispers of our spiritual team and
For me on my
path, this was step 1. Clearing my head of intrusive negative thoughts was the
best thing I’ve ever done for myself. If not for that simple step, I may have
continued along a very unhappy and unfulfilling path.
2. Bring Awareness to Perceived Negative Thought
Patterns – Our negative thought loops are pointing us to where there is
work to do. It may be thoughts of ourselves, of others, or of a situation. If
it’s in our awareness it’s available for transformation.
Think of the negative
thoughts as negative, heavy, dense energy and your healing will allow that to
be released. Once the old energies are released, we have room for lighter and more
3. Bring Awareness to Resistance Energy
– As with negative thought loops, resistance to approaching any topic or any
aspect of our life is a clue as to where some of our most transformative work
can be realized. Recognizing our resistance comes with intention and awareness.
No matter how much we
resist working on an aspect of our lives, relationships, career, sexuality, any
situation, it will come up to be healed. At some point it will become a block that
needs to be cleared to make progress, to realize our goals and dreams.
Out of Your Head and Into Your Heart – If we lean towards over thinking,
don’t spend that energy. It won’t help. Our brain is trying to protect us from
perceived dangers and doesn’t want us to change. The answers to our questions
about life and our direction are in our heart. You can begin the conversation,
the connection, with your heart by asking directly. You can ask, “What does my
heart want?”. The intention is to connect and understand.
When I’m unsure, I ask my
heart, “My dear heart, what do you want?”. My intension is always to connect
and understand. Over time, I began to feel my heart answer. We communicate well,
and in our own way, when the chakras are clear and balanced to the best of our
5. Bring Awareness to Your Needs and Be
Gentle with Yourself – Bring awareness to what you need in the moment be it
rest, exercise, meditation, or isolation. You may learn things about yourself
that are unexpected, and it may open you up to feel all sorts of emotions and
energies. Be gentle with yourself. Practice compassion and forgiveness for yourself when the
challenges are intense. Remember to nurture, hug, and care for yourself in
every way imaginable. Self-compassion will help you navigate this beautiful
For me it meant that I prioritized
my self-care, self-nurturing, and self-forgiveness. I became an expert self-nurturer in the form
of self-hugs, self-soothing, and all forms of self-care. Be the energy that you
need, and when you can’t, ask for Spirit’s help.
6. Communicate with Your Intuition, the
Language of Your Soul – When you feel it, communicate with it. Sometimes we
need to invite the conversation as a form of consent. Ask your intuition for a
sign. Ask it for what a “yes” feels like or sounds like. Choose whatever method
of communication works best for you, writing, hearing, numerical message. It is
likely that the form of communication aligns with your clair senses. It will be
For me the conversations
began with questions about how we could best communicate. Then I was able to
ask simple yes/no questions and receive answers. It is one of my most cherished
aspects of my spiritual path and how we continue to communicate today.
7. Communicate with Your Spiritual Team –
Ask questions about how to communicate with them. Then your intention will be
to communicate, instead of asking for something from them. It’s a nice way to
begin the relationship if it’s not already established. If your connection is
available to you, remember to sow those seeds as you would in any other
My path was co-created
with Spirit, clear communication made that possible. We need to consent and
offer up our free will before Spirit can proceed with much of their work.
8. Open to Change – That’s what our
spiritual awakenings are, our spiritual paths are designed for change. We are
asking to change our lives. And even though we have asked for changes, they can
show up in unexpected ways and seem terrifying. It’s okay. Ask for support and
guidance. Ask for anything you need. Remember, the changes are for our highest
and best good. Be open to receive.
experienced change in every aspect of my life. When I resisted change, it
hindered the pace of my awakening path. When I was intentional about opening to
receive change it was easier to navigate, but that is sometimes easier said
than done. I often ask Spirit to help me meet the upcoming changes with “ease
9. Go with the Flow – Surrender the push
and pull, the doubts and fears. Surrender to the flow of your process and path.
It’s especially important to surrender to the flow, and to Spirit, when we feel
ourselves try to control and push the agenda. Go with whatever comes and
remember that it’s all in your favor and in Divine timing.
Going with the flow means
to ease resistance and trust the process. Often, very often, I would release the
energy of resistance and affirm my intention to go with the flow. I believe in
this process so much that I created a few energy releasing videos on YouTube.
They walk through the energetic process of releasing, after which you can add
your own intention for how you want to move forward.
to Your Path – There will be challenges, it is a growth path. By
committing to your path and being intentional, you are carrying the energy of faith
and trust. Think of the commitment to your path as committing to Spirit and all
the love, support, protection, and guidance you are worthy of.
From my own
experience, spiritual awakening is both challenging and very rewarding. It was
during the most intense challenges that I affirmed the commitment I made to
myself to “see it through”. My commitment carried me through the deepest
darkest places and allowed me to make choices that aligned with my intention.
to Yourself – Awakening spiritually or being on a spiritual path is often
about personal growth. Commit to yourself, commit to the energy you put into
yourself. You may need more self-care, more rest, more seclusion. Honor your
needs and commit to providing the best experience possible for yourself.
Remaining on my path was
the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. It has allowed the beauty and the
magic to unfold after much healing of my body, mind, heart, and soul. It has
allowed me to clear karmic cycles and align me with my soul intention. And isn’t
that what we are on this path for?
This advice about how to navigate a spiritual awakening, or
spiritual path, is the foundation for my spiritual awakening. They all come
from my own experience, and they may not align with yours. That’s okay. We all
have unique experiences. My intention is to share because we may be able to
learn from each other.
If nothing else, it’s a reminder that you’re not alone. While
on the path we are always loved, supported, protected, and guided by Spirit.
