I’ve seen and read a lot about the stages of spiritual awakening over the years and to be honest, I’ve been left disappointed. For the most part I couldn’t understand how everyone else’s awakening was all rainbows and butterflies, while I became a hot, emotional, crazy, mess. I figured I must be doing something wrong. Why did it seem that everyone else could walk this path in linen robes, bare feet and a ton of stable grace and I was somehow failing. Even after so much time, I was still chronically ungrounded, anxious, emotionally triggered and finding daily physical life an unmanageable burden.
Thankfully, that was then and this is now. I have an entirely different perspective now that I’ve come through so much of the journey. I can look back and see the patterns. I can stop waiting for enlightenment or connection from someone else’s perspective and know that my experience is real (and so is yours) – whether it fits into a preconceived box or not. So, that being said, I’d like to bust some of the enlightenment myths and instead, give you what I’ve found to be a more accurate account of the 4 key stages of spiritual awakening.
