The spiritual journey – along with the next “spiritual awakening” we are pursuing – seems to be continually taking place in an exotic place or after a traumatic event in life. Maybe you think you want to experience ayahuasca from Peru, or perhaps you want to leave your spouse to experience the clairvoyance you always desire. On the positive note, you can find your spirituality and experience the courses you want in the comfort of your own home. Below are just six simple strategies to prepare yourself for a spiritual awakening.
Declutter Your Room
You can start by cleaning your room. You can take out stuff in your room that you no longer need. Decluttering your space is fundamental also to declutter your mind. Make time to sit in solitude every day. Let your thoughts flow without judgment and slowly observe how your mind free from emotional clutter. Meditation allows you to relax and focus on what is important and true for all of us. It also allows you to have a great relationship with your intuition, which a form of spiritual guidance.
Rethink of Your Personal Beliefs
In general, be intentional in recognizing what you believe and where you put your energy. And be honest with yourself. Are your beliefs encouraging your spiritual growth? Often, spiritual awakening is all about letting go of some beliefs you have already believed in since the beginning. But that’s the problem with a spiritual awakening: you need to figure out first that you have been sleeping all along.
Widen Your Perspective
Explore a new perspective and different beliefs. Read books and listen to lectures and talk to people who have different views on life. An awakening occurred when you discovered something new. When you do this, perhaps you will literally “awaken” your mind and spirit from sleeping spiritually.
There is soul, energy, and charm outside the world. Many people spend their time locked inside, sitting behind computer screens, or not connected to the world. Take the opportunity to be one with nature; you can find gardens with trees and fresh air to breathe. Try not to be distracted by your phone or the other person’s company. Allow yourself the silence, isolation, and presence from being outside. You may be amazed by what you can come alive within you.
Take a Good Care of Yourself
Taking care of yourself means eating healthy and staying active. That’s the best way to keep yourself connected to a higher power; it may be God, the Universe, or whatever you believe in. As we allow our internal systems, physical, emotional, and spiritual, to be clogged and blocked by supernatural and lethargic substances, we block the possibility of awakening and expansion. Keep your body pure and clean by feeding and moving it regularly. And prepare to receive the messages you seek.
Learn to Let Go
The truth is you cannot force spiritual awakening to come to you. There might be one particular thing or one of these tips that can help you achieve it, but there is no exact recipe for enlightenment. Just do your best, and let it go.
If you can’t let go of the idea of having a spiritual awakening and still attached to your version of enlightenment, you will be less likely to experience it. Keep your mind at ease; knowing that what’s happening to you is the perfect track for you.
Remember that a spiritual awakening is not a one-time thing but rather a life-long journey of growth. Keep doing these steps above, and you’ll surely find yourself “awakened” to a new, more profound, and more different ways.
