“Let us help the phoenix to rise from the ashes; let us help lay the foundation for a new renaissance; let us help to accelerate the spiritual awakening until it lifts us into the golden age which would come.” ~ Peace Pilgrim
Believe it or not, we are more than just physical creatures. And now more than ever we can take advantage of all the knowledge and information we have access to and learn how to bring to the surface the infinite wisdom and power present within ourselves and discover the truth of who we are.
It is my hope that by sharing this beautiful list of 10 signs of spiritual awakening (attributed to Peace Pilgrim by Dr. Wayne Dyer) we will all find the inner strength, courage, and confidence to rise above our fears, insecurities and the many limitations of our physical body so that we can allow our Spiritual Self to awaken and become active in our lives.
10 Clear Signs of Spiritual Awakening
1. An increased tendency to think and act spontaneously.
The first sign of spiritual awakening is this increased tendency to think and act spontaneously. Rather than forcing things into existence, like most people do – based on fear and past experiences, you allow things to follow their natural course by trusting the flow of life.
2. Unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment of your life.
The second sign of spiritual awakening is an unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment. To live in a state of profound love and deep gratitude for all, aware of the beauty that surrounds you and in love with all there is.
3. A loss of interest in judging others and yourself.
You just don’t have it in you any longer.
4. A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
As a wise man said it, analyzing is a violent intellectual act. We are all going from one state to another. And since you no longer confuse the state for the person, there is no need to analyze and interpret the actions of others.
5. A loss of interest in conflict and confrontation.
You’re no longer interested in being right and making others wrong. You moved way past that.
6. A loss of ability to worry.
There is no longer a need to worry. All is perfect and you now know it!
7. Frequent episodes of appreciation.
Your heart overflows with love and you can’t help but appreciate the beauty and perfection of life.
8. Deep feelings of connection.
With God, nature, Self and others.
9. Frequent attacks of smiling.
You smile when you wake up in the morning; you smile when you see your reflection in the mirror; you smile when you walk down the street; when you do your chores; when you are at work… You just smile because you are happy and in love with life.
10. A deep feeling of love.
The last sign of spiritual awakening is the ability to love all without conditions. You are love personified. You are love in action. And this great love you feel in your heart heals, not only you and your whole life, but it heals the whole world as well.
And these are the 10 clear signs of spiritual awakening according to Peace Pilgrim. I am curious, how many of them are already present within you?
P.S. I was first exposed to these signs of spiritual awakening many years ago, but I forgot about them. And this year, as I started going through the teachings of my mentor and spiritual teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer, I was exposed to these signs of spiritual awakening once again. And I knew I had to share them with you as well.
