No matter your level of conscious
awareness or the level of spiritual enlightenment that you have
attained, there will come a time on your spiritual journey where you
know and feel that you have made great internal progress and then
Positivity has flown out the window,
prophetic visions and
lucid dreaming have been replaced with normal
lower conscious ideals and mindfulness has been replaced with overactive thinking patterns.
You simply can't make the
connection that you once felt and it seems impossible to return to
the level of light, love and higher awareness that you seek.
Everything you attempt to get moving
again seems to fail, as if an invisible road block has been put
right in front of you, leaving you wondering,
Spiritual road blocks are designed for
you to slow down and take a break. Your initial spiritual awakening,
may have been so full-blown, that now your mind needs the time to
A reformation of belief systems,
perceptions of the world and perceptions of yourself are in order
These time periods can be extremely
frustrating and sometimes even painful if the cycle is leading you
Dark Night of the Soul. Navigating this rocky terrain requires,
patience and gentleness with yourself, in order to sail the rough
waters, safely ashore.
Determining the root cause of spiritual,
developmental, stalemates, are crucial to getting you back on the
1.You Need Healing
A spiritual awakening can bring
repressed memories and emotions from your unconscious into your
conscious awareness. Such as past lives, things you may have
forgotten about or things you weren't even aware had occurred, may
come bubbling to the surface.
You may even begin to disassociate with
these memories, eluding yourself into believing that they are
figments of your imagination.
Any psychologist will tell you that
anger stems from a wide variety of underlying causes. When it comes
to anger stemming from a spiritual awakening however, we usually can
narrow down the field a little bit.
You still have hidden repressed
memories, not yet brought to surface as well as the failure to
forgive for those memories brought to your conscious awareness.
3. You have developed an
over-inflated sense of self
When you awaken you feel on top of the
world, you feel like you have 'finally arrived' and looking back at
others who have not yet reached your level of awareness, you can't
help but eventually feel "special".
Don't get me wrong,
enlightenment and the
evolution of consciousness is something to be celebrated!
However, spiritual enlightenment is the
ultimate goal for all humanity, not just a chosen
The more you associate yourself with
this I.D of being different or special, that is according to Freud,
"motivated by self-gratification and pleasure" the more you battle
with your 'super
ego' effectively making it impossible to sustain a
present awareness of acceptance and love, thus hindering the
continuance of your spiritual growth.
Quite simply, the more you believe that
you have "arrived", the more you have nowhere to go. No matter how
much you want to continue on your quest in attaining consistent
spiritual fulfillment, your cup is full and needs to be emptied.
4. You're frustrated with the
current world status
After much euphoria and exploration of
the higher realms of life, gaining the wisdom and understanding of
your multidimensional universally connected existence, you find
yourself - human again.
This can be a major let down.
The power that
you exuded in the upper realms isn't manifesting in your current
physical state and this can cause much discomfort and impatience.
You may also feel alienated from much of
society as you have been endowed with much wisdom and wish to share
your knowledge and yet to those who are "un-enlightened", your
perceptions and ideals are viewed as unrealistic and over-exuberant.
After much effort in attempting to teach
others of your path, you end up feeling more discouraged than
Feeling as though your hands are chained, watching as
the masses fall into the same old cycles of fear, attachment and
compliance to the ruling oligarchy.
5. You've fallen back into old
patterns of behavior
Do you remember that moment when you
first "made contact?"
The moment when everything opened up for you
in a blink of an eye and your entire world was changed. You saw
reason and meaning behind everything that is, was and is yet to
Do you also remember how it felt to look
at milk from a cow or a cheeseburger? Or how it felt when you
realized that you were a pawn in the game, a slave to a system that
appeared to be winning?
This is your reminder...
What we were exposed to during our
awakenings was real and true, so hold fast and hold firm because we
are the change and we are the people the world has been waiting for
- all of us.
6. You're not listening to your
While we are all
globally connected, with hearts beating to the same drum, we are
Each of us have a piece to a larger
puzzle that is ushering in the age of enlightenment. Not one of us
views the world from an entirely uniform basis of perception and it
is in this uniqueness that lies your life purpose.
That piece of the puzzle that you are to bring to the table and do
this you must follow your heart.
We are always receiving subtle cues,
synchronicities and soft nudges from the universe: a
of light in a world that sometimes can feel enshrouded with
When your mind cannot find its way out of its current
spectrum of reality,
your heart will always guide you along the path
you are seeking.
7.You still think that you are
Due to major cultural, societal and
religious indoctrination's, a spiritual awakening can naturally be
interpreted as an external happening, that of which you had little
or no control over.
A gift from the gods or God, as your
consciousness projects itself and is viewed out of the physical
unworthiness can immediately take over the control center in
your mind and many will feel that they have been blessed with such a
wonderful gift, that is not deserved.
While there are many Gods, Bodhisattva's
and Guides that can be of assistance to you on your awakening
journey, the realization of authentic power is the ultimate
This authentic power emanates from within your own unconscious mind,
that which is already a part of you; quite simply it is
in your DNA.
By making the unconscious-conscious and
bringing memory forward, the wisdom and knowledge unfolds in knowing
that you are in control of your own destiny.
Everything you need is
already within you, because you are god.
So if you are stuck on your spiritual
awakening journey, meet your anger with love, follow your heart in
all of your ways and remember that you
are always worthy...
