What does it mean to go through a spiritual awakening? This can mean you change from unconscious thinking to conscious thinking.
Rather you choose to go through an awakening, or the awakening finds you, this can change how you feel in the earth and once it starts there is no going back. This kind of thing can be painful and challenging but it is better than the pain that you feel, and it will bring you freedom.
After you go through an awakening you will find that you have joy, peace, freedom, a clear mind, and your life will be worth living.
There are different stages that people go through on their journey and you can use this guide to help you understand what is happening to you.
The Stage of False Self
The first stage can be called the Stage of False Self because this is a time where you are asleep, but you do not even realize it.
You think that you are living your bet life, but you are really only living to survive. You allow society to tell you who you are, and you might even be a victim.
You allow your mind to program you and you see the world in the wrong point of view. You want to be accepted and to fit in and so you will compromise things you want in your life so that you can do that and be that person.
You will find you have no self-worth and that you are always trying to show people how worthy you are. This stage is a time where you will be happy, but it will be based on what you do.
You will try to control your life and your happiness, and you will allow your emotions to decide things for you. Your actions will be based on your emotions and your feelings.
You will have no connection between what you believe and what you feel, and you will doubt things in your life all the time.
The Stage of Asking Questions
