In early March, 2011, I had the most miraculous spiritual awakening experience during a meditation practice. My life changed from a life of victimhood, hurt, and suffering to a new perception of my world. It is difficult to describe the vastness and overwhelming feeling of this experience as my awakening was sudden and dramatic. I left my former life and friends to pursue my awakened path and follow my higher alignment. I moved to a city that I knew no one without a job or external purpose. However, I knew and understood all along that I would find my life’s purpose and the inner journey I was about to embark.
I first began my quest to find myself when I was 20 years old in college. After an abusive relationship in college, I entered psychotherapy and recognized that I had been abused as a child and continued this pattern of behavior with others as an adult. This was the seed I planted in my search for a better and healthier life for myself. Later, my spiritual awakening revealed my unhappy life full of rage and hurt, working in unfulfilling jobs, and experiencing repeated failed relationships. I wanted a second chance for myself, and I believe it was this intention that caused of my awakening experience.
As I began to awaken, I experienced blockages in my chakras, and throughout my body. This manifested in pain that caused me to be unable to get out of bed. I also experienced enhanced visions, intuitive feelings of knowing about people and events around me, as I had extra sensory perception as a child. For the first time, I clearly heard my inner voice from my higher self who guided me through this difficult and frightening process, albeit with my ego fighting me the entire way. My awakening revealed my suffering, emotional traumas, and destructive behaviors. After healing many of my emotional wounds, I began to release my ego, break through my illusions, found my life’s purpose, and recognized my own truth and reality.
Our egos creates illusions that we must overcome in order to truly awaken. The ascension process forces us to confront our ego and release it, heal our emotional wounds and pains associated with our smaller selves, and come to acceptance of our own truths and reality. Without working through this ascension process, those who experience awakening remain unable to ascend spiritually, and are stuck in a physically and emotionally painful existence as their chakras and energy bodies are blocked from stagnant negative energy. I believe this is one of the most difficult part of the spiritual awakening process that is to confront our illusions and face our true reality.
These revelations caused me to self evaluate about how I want to live my life, and my hope to become enlightened. But who am I? I am not the Dalai Lama, Gandhi, or Mother Theresa. Then, I realized that enlightenment is not only meant for the select few, but it is meant for all humankind. We all have the potential for this enlightenment and to live a freer, less burdened human life. In this blog, I will share with you my continuing ascension process through emotional healing, conscious awareness, releasing the ego, changing our belief system, changing our perspectives, and changing our conditioned behaviors.
Sending love, light, and peace to you!
