“Awakening is not changing who you are but discarding who you are not” — Deepak Chopra.

You might have heard about spiritual awakening from your favorite guru, but what does it mean?

The best definition I’ve found is, “Spiritual awakening is knowing your answer to who am I?”

I think the term “spiritual awakening” is misleading in many ways. I believe our spirits are never dormant but ever-present and aware.

The better term for me would be “spiritual remembering.”

To portray the putting together of pieces of a puzzle of who you are. In short, the remembrance of I AM.

“Awakening is not changing who you are but discarding who you are not”
— Deepak Chopra.

In the awkward process of discovering who you are, many things start to make less sense. Why? Because you start asking, “Is this what I truly want to experience?”

And, whether you know it or not, most of your wants and needs are the results of your social conditioning.

In a sense, what you think other people find correct shapes your reality.

Things you’ve ignored as personal truths start to press for space in your reality during a spiritual awakening. And, you discard a lot of social conditioning that no longer defines who you are.

“Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself”
— Hermann Hesse.

The training you’ve received is that peace is the result of a calm environment.

At some point in life, you start to notice the opposite. Things might seem great on the outside, but people live with internal chaos.

Peace is not a lack of outer chaos.

Peace is the presence of internal calmness.

You are blessed when you’ve found that inner place where you are neutral and peaceful about what you perceive.

Through meditation, a common practice for spiritual awakening, people figure out what inner peace feels like—the place of total bliss.

Christians call it the holy of holies. The Yogi calls it nirvana. It is heaven on earth.

“Follow your intuition; it will always lead you to the right destination.”
— Anonymous.

Intuition is my current fascination as I am awakening to who I AM.

I’ve found a stream of knowledge that speaks to me. It somehow knows my personal questions, needs, wants, and desires.

I call it intuition. It has led me to learn to relax because I know that answers will come to me. Learning to worry less and let my mind be guided.

Intuition is not my only source of knowledge. I still use Google like everyone else. But, there is something effortless about having a hunch following it and realizing the hunch was true. If you are experiencing an awakening, this makes sense. You know without knowing. You are sure about things without external confirmation.

Following intuition is one of the hardest things to do, but the benefits of trusting your inner guidance system are endless.
