How to Have a Spiritual Awakening

by Janie J

To learn how to have a Spiritual Awakening, begin by understanding how it's different from Spiritual Enlightenment.

Spiritual Awakening

A Spiritual Awakening is an event that occurs when one is ready to start on a spiritual path. This can occur in a variety of ways, but I believe it is spurred by a deep, intense desire to learn and understand more about life.

When I experienced it, I was searching for answers and working diligently to discover what a spiritual life meant and how to live one. I wasn't trying to understand how to have a Spiritual Awakening. I didn’t have much of a clue what any of that meant! Even though a friend was advising me, I was still quite the "spiritual babe in the woods" so to speak.

My awakening occurred during an intimate moment of totally "letting go" with a person with whom I could (finally) be myself.

During this transcendent event, I felt a total understanding of why I had been through the trauma and aftermath of having my 35 year marriage unravel. I also felt a tremendous overflowing of love like never before. My body and soul were telling me, “It was all for a reason, and you are right with the Universe now.” I felt an immense amount of peace and calmness.

At the time I truly did not know what it was. I kept thinking, “What the heck was that?”

(I later found out it was called "kundalini" and I wasn’t the only one to ever experience it. Thanks Google!)

Spiritual Enlightenment

A Spiritual Awakening leads one on a path of Spiritual Enlightenment, which is a journey.

The Tibetans call it “The Path to Enlightenment.” This is where we learn to master the many lesson we are here on Earth to experience. We grow and evolve, and hopefully serve as an example to others of how to live an enlightened life. A life that our Higher Power (whomever that may be) desires of us.

There is much to learn on the path of Spiritual Enlightenment. I was granted the honor of preparing these lessons to share with the people of the world in my easy-to-understand discourse -- “The New I Am Document - Volume 1” -- which is available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle.

While I didn't write it as a guide on how to have a Spiritual Awakening, it can provide you with an understanding of why we are here and what our purpose is. You don't need to spend years in deep meditation or seeking wisdom from complicated books, this simple document can take years off of your spiritual journey.
