Spiritual Awakening Can Be Painful

oil paiting with abstract swirling shapesSpiritual awakening can be painful emotionally, because we shed away many of the constructs, beliefs, patterns – inner and outer – that we had surrounded ourselves with, and accumulated over the course of many lifetimes.

Many of these constructs are not aligned with our true spiritual nature and do us more harm than good. But we were convinced otherwise. We were absolutely positively sure we needed them to survive, to thrive, and to feel good. We identified with them. They deal with anything and everything in our lives, big and small, and are often things we hold very dear.

You may not be completely aware of what and how they work. Yet spiritual awakening is precisely about becoming aware of such constructs and liberating yourself from them. They are like leeches attached to your skin, draining your blood. Yet you believe you need them there.

Therefore, as these constructs are challenged, they sometimes need to be ripped off. And the process can be quite painful. Particularly when we resist it.

Yet the process needs to move forward because your own spiritual desire for it, for freedom, for peace, for healing, surpassed your clinginess to the constructs that hold you prisoner. The process occurs by your decision.

Spiritual awakening is about discerning what is healthy, appropriate, and balanced about our desires and intentions, and what is simply an artificial construct of the ego that bounds your and keeps you tied in place. Sometimes a desire is spiritually legitimate and appropriate, yet it was denied, cancelled, suppressed, and now it’s your job to allow yourself validation. Sometimes a desire is plain destructive, negative, vicious, and you need to let it go completely. Sometimes, within the same theme or subject, you are meant to discard what is negative and keep what is positive.

As you go about making your realizations and decisions about this, there are no rules about what is right and wrong. There are only guidelines, hints, general directions, from those who were on their own path. But no opinions and truths from others, even from masters, can ever be greater than your own. Your spiritual awakening is completely unique to you. That’s the way it should be.

In such process you’ll do well in discarding any and all beliefs and perspectives from others about what is right and wrong about you, and focus on your own decisions and realizations above anything else. Spiritual awakening is the great inward turn.

Spiritual awakening can at times be painful physically, because it’s not just an abstract thing. It’s not a fantasy that exists solely in books and tales and alternative websites. Awakening is an actual, complex process, that is triggered, planned, staged, layered, carried out and monitored, and executed on many spiritual levels, with much spiritual support, that in a global sense envisions the transmutation of your energy. Therefore there’s actual work being done on your energy and your body, beyond what you know an control from your human perspective.

We cannot generalize too much about this, because what happens exactly completely depends on the person and the person’s energy. We can only point out general symptoms, pains, and challenges, that usually surround this – such as back and head pains, waking up at night, and all those things.

All the while your spiritual team is tasked with such work, they also need to deal with you. With your stances and decisions, as a human being with a human perspective. In this regard you can collaborate with it – or you can oppose it. In your process, you’ll probably be doing a little bit of both.

As with the emotional side of spiritual awakening, the physical aspect of the challenge can be diminished to some degree, by acceptance, and by surrendering yourself to the process without resistance, as much as possible.
