KELLY ASHLEY: “4 Stages Of Real Spiritual Awakening And How To Move Through Them More Easily”

almas-antigas

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.

STAGE 1 – AWAKEN

This is the stage that starts it all.  And no, it wasn’t an accident.  Your soul planned exactly what it was doing before coming down here — its happening for a reason.  Large quotients of energy begin to flood your system.  The psychic centers are opened (usually quite abruptly) and suddenly your feeling, sensing, seeing or hearing things that you weren’t aware of before.  Your psychic senses are so much more acute — you may even begin having powerful spiritual experiences or sensations and you’ll feel more sensitive than usual too.  Due to the heightening of these psychic senses you’ll likely feel the need to retreat — to pull back from people, places, and things.  You’ll want to hibernate.  That is entirely natural.  Its ok.

STAGE 2 – HEALING

Now your system is seriously online (and it needs to be for this next part).  Energy is thrust (quite powerfully) up through the chakra system.  The purpose is to dislodge the old ‘dirt’ from lifetimes ago which block that energy flowing smoothly straight through your system (giving you a purer connection to source).  There are old emotions, heart breaks and trauma from past life times that our soul needs to heal.  This is why our psychic senses had to be so heightened — so that we could tap into the information from our past lives and become aware of it.

During this phase you’ll feel really emotional.  Your emotions will change wildly and erratically.  You may feel you have no control over when or where or how strongly they come up.  It can be really hard.  And if you try to hide, the universe will stick people in your way to trigger the emotions that need healed.  So the lady at the gas station will give you a look that triggers an inexplicable sense of fear in you.  Or you’ll just happen to meet a new love interest with the same name as the one who broke your heart before.  Things will get really synchronistic, and probably quite confusing but this stage will pass.  And the good news is, that once these issues are done, they are really and truly forever DONE.  They’ll be healed and cleared so well on the soul level that you’ll likely never feel them in the same way ever again.

STAGE 3 – LIFE PURPOSE

Phew! By the time you get to here, you’ll be feeling inspired, creative, full of ideas and equipped with an inbuilt sense of duty to help or serve in some way.  You might just feel like Superman — and so you should!  However, there are likely still some little niggles that show up as you move into a new project — the likes of which is probably entirely new territory.  Sometimes at this stage you get a little second wave of the previous.  The universe is testing that all of these issues (who weren’t who you truly are) are gone for good.  You might find some old patterns, issues or pains surge again.  And when they do you’ll likely feel exasperated, and irritated at yourself, and question if you’ve made any progress at all.  But they’ve been inflated and intensified for a reason — so that you’ll clear out every last nook and cranny of that low self esteem, or loneliness, or anxiety.  You’ll finally be free of it!

This time can be a little nerve wracking, as you step into a cause or a new career or the thing that fulfills you most.  Its nerve wracking simply because its new.  And while your soul has let go of fears that you can’t do it, or worries that it wont work out, it also has never had an experience without them looming over you.  It can feel odd to try something and do well, or to find your space in the world.  Allow yourself to realize that everything is OK.  You are safe and guided as you try new things and find ways of living that truly express who you really are.

STAGE 4 – DIVINITY

Now is the stage when most folks will tell you that you have reached guru status.  I’m not going to tell you that, because personally, I think it’s ungrounded.  Divinity is about being so clear of old pain, and negative beliefs and assumptions about life, that you are truly pure in your energy.  You are true to who you are.  You are in your divinity because, much like a beautiful diamond is encrusted in muck and coal, you have removed and cleared everything that is NOT who you are.  All that’s left is a polished diamond.

You were always divine — no matter where you are in these stages, you are still divine — its just easier to see that beauty and authenticity without all the ‘muck’ on top (and it makes your psychic abilities so much more accurate too!).  Your interactions with others are clear and genuine.  You reach a new level of freedom because you are no longer bound by the beliefs that once held you back.  You might end up like a guru.  You might walk bare foot across beaches of sand, blessing others with a gentle pat on the head; or you could just be a normal person, aligned with their life purpose, enjoying the sunshine at a family barbecue — fully present, stable and grounded in the moment — like me tonight.

Ok, so now that you know the 4 main stages, you’re probably itching to move forward and know the next step.  I tried A LOT of different techniques to help me move through awakening more smoothly (I’m a bit like a geeky spiritual scientist, testing and evaluating so many different techniques).  I did healing for 9 hours a day (whoops).  I did meditation for 2 hours at a time (double whoops).  I even went on week long courses to open up my psychic senses further (wait what?!  Now that’s just silly).  Yep, I’ve made pretty much every mistake you can make on the journey of awakening – and made it 10 times harder for myself too.

It wasn’t until I learned effective grounding that everything came into alignment.  I know what you’re thinking.  Boring old grounding.  Well, not exactly, because I found that traditional grounding methods often don’t work for us.  We have so much energetic power being blasted through us that we need effective grounding techniques that work, and work FAST.  I’ve created a FREE 5-day grounding course to help you do just that, but more on that in a minute.

Grounding was the one thing I did that finally brought order and stability to my awakening.  It stopped the whole process from being so crazy and uncontrollable.  It calmed my emotions.  It made normal life ‘normal’ again.  And once all that was done, the purpose that I had been desperately searching for years just struck my mind like a little golden power bolt — fully downloaded with the ‘how to’ manual.  Now that’s enlightenment!

I realized afterwards that the reason I hadn’t found (or been told) my life purpose yet was because I wasn’t actually ready to receive it.  I had been chronically ungrounded for almost 4 years, mostly completely unaware that that was the problem.  Once I showed the Universe that I was stable, secure, balanced and steady, it just illuminated my mind and changed the direction of my whole life in an instant. It was incredible.

I know you want that too.  You want to move through these stages — get out of the hard ones and into the fun and exciting ones.  You absolutely can — and I’ve created a FREE course to help you do that right now!  Visit our website in the bio below to get started!

KELLY ASHLEY: “Top 23 Spiritual Awakening Signs and Symptoms”

adec7-gaiabirth2bcopy

If you’re reading this you’ve probably spent some time scouring the internet looking for lists of signs or symptoms of spiritual awakening.  It’s probably not the first time you’ve searched for that either.  How do I know this?  Because I was once in the same position — endlessly trawling the internet in the search for answers too.  I didn’t really find them at the time and I secretly worried that I might have gone mad.  Fear not, dear friend, you are absolutely not crazy (although some of your spiritual experiences might be).  You’re going through a spiritual awakening.

Let’s take a look at some of the signs and symptoms that can be experienced during the awakening:

1.  Physical sensitivity — sensitive to light, noise, certain foods

2.  Emotional sensitivity — extreme highs or extreme lows, wild or erratic mood swings, unexplained depression or sudden waves of emotion

3.  Energetic sensitivity — picking up on energies or feelings from people, places or things. Feeling overwhelmed by your own energy or others

4.  Unusual sensations — tingling, tickly feelings, buzzing or prickling, shivers or shaking

5.  Feeling drawn to metaphysics or spirituality — healing, religion, meditation, practices etc.

6.  Ringing in the ears or feeling frequency changes

7.  Synchronicity — seeing number patterns, peculiar coincidences, meaningful signs or symbolism

8.  Lack of interest in negative vibrations or interests, loss of interest in old friendships, places or behaviors

9.  Knowing that something has changed within you or your life, even if you can’t explain what

10.  Becoming more introverted or sensitive, craving more time alone

11.  Aversion to superficial, fake or inauthentic people, places or things

12.  A deep yearning to find meaning in life, to help others, to fulfill a life purpose or soul mission

13.  Powerful aversion to traditional work, the system, or having to work for money

14.  Increased psychic or intuitive abilities — senses, visions, knowing, hearing or even seeing

15.  Changes in appetite and eating habits — you may find you are suddenly much hungrier, craving protein or unusual foods.  Sudden aversion to drinking alcohol, eating meat, chemical laden food or unnatural substances, or less need to eat at all.

16.  Changing sleep patterns — unable to sleep, waking during the night feeling wired or overstimulated, sometimes more than once

17.  Sudden health complications, ailments or injuries — old issues held in your energetic blueprint are being released

18.  Vivid, meaningful dreams, or lucid dreaming

19.  Confusion in life or inability to make decisions

20.  Impatience — perhaps you know something is supposed to happen and you feel you literally can’t wait for it, or you feel a soul call or life purpose that needs to be fulfilled.  A feeling of time running out

21.  Communications with spirit, Creator, guides or ascended masters, angels or even ET beings

22.  Awareness of soul mates, twin flames or soul counterparts

23.  Past life memories or current life issues rising to the surface to be released and healed

Experiencing something that’s not on the list?  Bingo!  That’s exactly how I felt when I searched too.  It’s not good for us, and I actually questioned whether I should create a list at all because it encourages you to fit your experience into a pre-defined framework.  That means, that if your experience doesn’t fit the list, you’ll begin to question yourself and everything you’ve been through.

You might even secretly fret that you’ve gone mad (don’t worry, I did too). I want you to know that each and every awakening experience is entirely different, unique and specific to the individual.

You are an amalgamation of all your past lives, all of your parallel lives, all your heartaches and belief systems.  Awakening is the process of UNDOING those exact things.  Its the process of releasing everything that isn’t who you truly are so that you can identify the divinity beneath.  That unraveling isn’t the same for everyone — it can’t possibly be.  You have a divine reason for being here — you had something special and unique to bring.  Don’t stifle that by defining the way your awakening must go.  Allow your soul to lead the way — don’t squeeze it through someone else’s framework — even mine.  Your soul knows exactly what its doing, let it get on with it.

However, I know from first hand experience that that isn’t so easy.  Awakening can be a crazy time and feel incredibly out of control.  You need to find a way to flow through the awakening without it throwing you around like a rag doll (which it will do, if you let it). And that involves grounding.

Grounding is the foundational step to moving through your awakening more quickly, easily and joyfully.

Why Is Grounding Essential?

Spiritual awakening can be very confusing.  It can leave you feeling lost, lonely and disconnected (not to mention, crazy).  It can simultaneously be the highest point of spiritual connection and the lowest point of physical existence.  It can even bring you to crisis point.  But here’s the thing — it only becomes confusing, frightening or isolating when you are out of balance.  You’re up too high without a hold in the physical.  The higher you float, the less of a grip on reality you have and the harder it is to handle physically being here.  Balance is needed, and that starts with grounding.

The purpose of awakening is to balance heaven and earth — high spiritual connectedness with physical presence — it’s like merging two worlds.  All of that wonderful connectedness, experience and insight can feel pretty useless if you’re not grounded in the physical to process it, share it or do something with it — and you’re definitely not going to be able to do that if your body, mind and energy are all over the place.  Give your mind a chance to catch up to these energetic changes and see the magic that happens.  You brain begins to make cognitive shifts.  Your mind can process and understand the experience.  Wonderful insights surge forward that can become the basis of your new renewed self and life.  You see, grounding is vital to get out of that stagnant, stuck and stale energy and step forward into the ‘new world’ that we’ve all been waiting for.

Struggling to Ground Yourself?

It’s challenging!  I know this because I went through the exact same thing during my own awakening experience.  The old methods just didn’t work (especially in cases of spiritual emergence). I tried everything — visualization, meditation, crystals, essential oils, incense.  Nothing worked.  It took a long time of repeatedly and desperately trying to unsuccessfully ground myself with these methods to realize that they didn’t bring me back down into my body, they were taking me back up.  I could see that because of the intensity of my spiritual awakening, they just wouldn’t work.

The best practices for grounding yourself during spiritual awakening are actually non-spiritual practices.  Focus on your body.  Focus on being present.  What can you perceive with your physical senses?  What can you do that’s actually fun and makes you want to stay in your body, present in the moment?  Try walking in nature, eating a delicious meal or laughing with some friends.  Grounding is the physical, earthly part of the merging process.  Do earthly, physical things and in time, you’ll find that your awakening becomes much more stable, flowing and enlightening.  The way it should be.
