Many people throughout the world are experiencing a Spiritual Awakening, but might not recognize it for what it is. They find themselves questioning previously held beliefs, they find themselves doubting those in authority, and they wonder what is going on with them and what is going on in the world. (Something which can be of great assistance in your spiritual awakening is learning how to forgive. You learn how to forgive by downloading the free ebook: The Four Steps to Forgiveness
These are times of dramatic change. Yet, despite the confusion – we might even say because of the confusion – people are waking up to the fact that there is “something within” themselves, a deeper and wiser part of themselves, looking to awaken and to take part in their life. This “something within” we are referring to is your spiritual self and therefore awakening to and expressing this part of you is a spiritual awakening.
Some come to a spiritual awakening by dramatic means such as a Near Death Experience, a major health issues (such as a life-threatening illness), or a personal crises such as separation or divorce. Some awaken owing to the loss of a loved one, seeing a loved one suffer, or even due to a betrayal by a loved one and so on. There are many ways in which we can find ourselves questioning previously held beliefs, or values we hold dear, and looking for a sense of truth.
Some come to a spiritual awakening through a yearning for “something more” in their life. They are dissatisfied with whatever success they have obtained and whatever material things, or material experiences, they have accumulated.
Many begin to look for The Truth. However, they often look in the wrong place because The Truth is something you must eventually experience within yourself. If you do not know the Truth about yourself then you will not be capable of recognizing it in life, in other people or in external situations. The Truth is not dependent on how loud a person speaks, the size of their following, or the drama in which they portray their views. The who claim to lead you to The Truth must ultimately help you explore and discover the nobler, higher, and better parts of yourself. For how can you express the best within yourself if you are not in contact with it?
The website is about that journey, the many paths to the discovery of the best within yourself which ultimately leads to your spiritual awakening – an awakening to the reality of your spiritual core – for ultimately every human being is really a spiritual being.

Many of us nowadays are going through a Spiritual Awakening, but we may not recognize this for what it is. In this episode, let’s explore some of the different aspects of life which can comprise a Spiritual Awakening and, if you are finding it challenging, how you can make your experience more graceful – and more pleasant.
Sometimes a Spiritual Awakening may happen when we are engaged on some form of recognisable “spiritual” activity such as meditation, yoga, or on retreat. Yet, often an Awakening may be working its way into our daily life via the things we enjoy; or the very things which trouble us the most. A spiritually uplifting event can be a joyful experience; such as the transcendent beauty of a flower, or other aspect of nature, or it can be when we are inspired by the teaching of some spiritual teacher. However, it can also come to us through people or events we find difficult or challenging. The experiences of life, some of which pain us so much like rejection, separation, divorce, loneliness, and so on, can assist our spiritual awakening when we learn to see them in a different way and learn to handle them differently. This is because such things push us beyond ourselves to discovering a larger more encompassing sense of self.
A Spiritual Awakening can be very dramatic, sudden and short, such as an NDE (Near Death Experience) usually is; or it can be subtle and happen over a long period of time. Once we have had such spiritual experience, it may take type for us to be able to integrate this into our daily life. We may find it challenging to relate to the people we know and the life we lived before. For example, people who have had NDE’s report that it come sometimes take them a few years to integrate the experience. When the awakening is more gradual it is probably more easy to integrate. The key is to not focus so much on how you now different from other people or how you were before; but to focus on how you are able to share love with others and how you are able to be helpful towards others.
