In November, I made a decision to walk away from a situation that was causing me immense pain & heartache. I proactively chose to forgive individuals who intentionally hurt me & decided to peacefully detach myself from them, wishing them peace & happiness together. Through this decision, I allowed myself to finally feel my emotions, self-reflect on my actions, & forgive myself for my mistakes. According to Deepak Chopra, spiritual awakening occurs when you’re no longer living in a dream world where you filter everything through your ego, focusing on the future & the past. With that in mind, are you having a spiritual awakening?
By letting go of what was no longer serving me & living in the present, my spirit began to awaken. I began to see repeating angel numbers (222, 333, 1111, etc.) My toxic patterns & vices became abundantly clear to me. And I ultimately found purpose in creating a community of support & guidance for others also trying to heal their hearts from suffering.
Death of the Ego
I decided that it was time to let go of attachments driven by my ego. Your Ego & attachments are how you define yourself & your self-worth, so I stopped defining my worth by the car I drive, what I eat, how I spend my money, etc. I also started to transmute my emotions & find inner peace through learning Tarot, which in turn allowed me to increase & trust my own intuition. Afterward, I suddenly feel more in sync with the universe. I became more compassionate, kind, & understanding. I now consistently do my best to be more authentic, & I’m happy to say that I’m flourishing in my newfound purpose.
If you think you’re experiencing a spiritual awakening, here are some helpful practices to help you on your journey:
- Spend more time outside in nature.
- Smile, laugh, & dance.
- Transmute your emotions into something productive.
- Connect with the Community around you.
- Volunteer or donate to a cause that you care deeply about.
- Practice gratitude daily.
- Listen to music on shuffle & pay attention to the song titles & lyrics the universe sends you.
- Slow down & rest.
- Trust in divine timing.
I truly believe in letting go & forgiving others as well as yourself. Stop trying to control the circumstances of your life & trust that the universe is unfolding as it was intended. You will be tested & when you fail, the universe will force you back into circumstances that no longer serve you until you finally learn your lesson. Spend your time focused on becoming your best self. By staying grounded & becoming more self-aware, you can & you will reach your higher self. If you’re doubting your journey, feel free to leave me a comment. I’d be more than happy to talk through your experiences & hear your story.
