Spiritual Awakening Have You Ever Had One Yet?

Spiritual AwakeningSadly, some people live their entire life without ever touching the surface of their spirituality.  Curiously, in the comments of one of my blog posts a while back, I realized that some people actually link spirituality with religious beliefs, which is certainly not the case.

Spirituality has to do with the “spirit” part of us, which is what is above and beyond the “fleshy” part of us, even though they do meet. Spirituality has nothing to do with religions, but yes, some religious people are spiritual while some are not.

Just wanted to make that clear right from the get go.

How is your spiritual awakening going?  Are you spiritually awake, or do you rely solely on what you can see and touch?

Hum, a good question to ask yourself, isn’t it?

Do you know that you can develop your spirituality like you can develop your muscles or your knowledge?  I can’t believe myself that I’ve lived most of my life so far without knowing this, but at least I feel blessed that I’ve finally found out. I know too many people who have lived and died without ever finding out their spiritual self.

Why do Some People Never Get in Touch with their Spirituality?

There are people who don’t want to find out. And if it’s your case, you most certainly won’t out. The law of attraction works in such a way that it will bring you what you’re looking for, but even if it were save your life, it won’t bring you what you don’t want to know or see. But that’s fair game if you ask me.

Spirituality is like that. If you are not interested in discorvering your spirituality, you will live your life from a non-spiritual place, and most likely you will struggle more than someone who does live a more spiritual life.

We all have  received messages of proofs that we are a spiritual being at one point or another, but most people just brush it off, and instead of developing such spirituality, they bury it.  More times than not it’s because of two main things; fear and ignorance.

At times, people are afraid to investigate, because for the most part, our society has put fear into the unknown, and as it has been discovered no so long ago, keeping people in fear is part of a machination from the very powerful of this world.  Not spiritually powerful, of course, I’m talking of the handful powerful with money and decision making.

Those powerful billionaires may be able to control your gas price, your banking system, what you eat, and what is physically available to you, but they can’t control your spirituality development, and that my friends, it’s golden.  As I was revealing in one of my latest post my value number one is freedom, and I value such freedom more than anything else.

My Own Spiritual Awakening

I have to say that since the beginning of this year I’ve had an increased spiritual awakening. Besides a few new things that I’ve learned during my CPC coaching course, I’ve been learning some even “bigger” things that will be invaluable to me in my coaching career.

I owe my spiritual growth to the fact that there are some things going on in my life that the bigger me doesn’t tolerate anymore.  There’s got to be a time – if you mature and grow spiritually – when you say, enough is enough, I’m not going to take this crap anymore.

Just want to remind you though, that because my blog post can be visible to anyone, there are some things that I’m not discussing in details here, as I don’t necessarily want to reveal some things about me to just anyone.  But there will be a book where some of those things I will tell, though, for the benefits of helping those that my experience will speak to.

So, to get back to what I was saying, I think that when you feel that your glass is full and that it would only take that very last drop for it to overflow, those are the times when you are looking for specific answers.  As it says somewhere in the Bible; “look and you will find.” I have no doubt about that. If you really look for something, the forces of the universe will bring it to you.

These past few months I’ve been looking for and finding some answers more than I ever did before.  I know that what I’ve been discovering lately will change not only my life, but that of all my future clients as well. I feel that the Universe – God – is giving me all the tools that I need to be a perfect coach. Not that am saying that I’m perfect, but you understand what I mean, right?

It has Not Always Been this Way

If I look back at my life, coming from being a very stressed child (because of being miserable in school due to bullying), to a still pretty miserable teenager due to other things that my subconscious mind programming kept bringing on to me, to a young adult who was really looking for herself without ever really finding her, I can only be grateful that I found my path.

All my past negative experiences brought me to more places where I shouldn’t have been, but that’s how the subconscious mind works.  Saying that I was in the midst of a vicious circle is an understatement.  That’s why personal development in my case, was a life saver. It really gave me a whole new foundation and purpose in life.

What I didn’t know back in the days is that just like once you fold a sheet of paper that folding line will be there forever, once there is a pattern that’s penetrated your subconscious mind, it’s also there forever.  Unless you find a way to erase your negative subconscious programming.

Over time, years of personal development have gradually showed me the way to go, and I feel that I am now at a point where I have pretty much everything I needed to work with. I just have to keep learning and practicing until I’m a master at it. But I’m finally onto something.

At the same time, I know that there is no way (at least that’s how I feel) that I could be a good coach if I couldn’t put myself in the shoes of the people I’m helping and will be helping in the future. So my past is useful to me, so to speak.

As a matter of fact, I have noticed time and time again that I am able to develop a much better relationship with people who can feel that I can relate to them, then those who don’t.  People can feel when you understand where they coming from, and they feel attracted to you.

What am I Talking about all that Anyway?

This post was in fact an introduction to some of the things I’ve been learning and practicing lately that I’ve blown my mind and I hope will yours as well when I write about my experiences with them in upcoming posts

It is my hope that you don’t forget about the spiritual YOU, and that you develop such precious spirituality, because I tell you, it is invaluable. It means freedom of mind, spirit and body. There is nothing better than this.

So, please, let me know about your spiritual journey in your comment below.

    Hi Sylviane,

    Thank you for sharing this insightful post and I cannot wait until your next one!

    Spirituality is the key factor in my own life. And once you reach that strong connection, it is like a whole different world. Yes, I agree that fear and ignorance hold us back from opening up to it. I have also found that some people are so enlightened they are afraid to open up to it. It scares them.

    No need to be afraid because we are, in fact, spiritual beings.

    I like the way you described the subconscious mind as folding a piece of paper. Well we know it can be unfolded and we can do lots of work on our subconscious mind. It’s all good. But taking it to the next level of spiritual connections is amazing!

      Hi Donna,

      Yes, I know that you would know all about that, Donna, and you also know how some people are scared to open up to it. It’s like psychic abilities such as you have, you know how people are scared of that one, maybe it’s the behaviors of some people having psychic abilities that given a bad wrap for all of them.

      What many people don’t realize is that we all have such abilities in us, and we can all develop it further if we wish to do so. For example, in my own case, I’m no more a psychic than most people out there, but yet I had to psychic messages in two specific dreams in my whole life. One was when I was 14 and the other I was 32. Both were some revelations I should have known nothing about what so ever. The one at 14 was a premonition of an accident which did happen 2 days later. And the one at 32 was a revelation about (my then future husband now my ex). It was about a secret (something that had happened to him when he was a child) that not even his own mother knew about.

      This is the proof that we ALL have psychic abilities, not just some people that society at times like to label as weirdoes. And the same goes for a lot of these things. They are natural spiritual elements that are available to us if we’re open to them.

      I’m glad you enjoyed this post and thank you for coming.

    I think I am going through one now. Like you say, personal things can not be mentioned but in one way, everything that has happened has been quite enlightening

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Natalie,

      Thanks for coming here and welcome. I’m glad you’re going through a spiritual awakening now. Those awakening make us grow so much. It’s all worth it.

      Again thanks for coming and have a great weekend. Will come by your blog to visit.

    Hi Sylviane,

    Yes, spirituality is very very different from religion and I am glad you raised that point here. I know perhaps things cannot be fully discussed here and you said you’d one day talk of it on your coming book, so we would surely love to go through that.

    You can be spiritual without being religious or believing in any religion and I think that’s what really matters, though people tend to remain confused about the two.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Harleena,

      Yes, the reason why people confuse the two is that religion itself has been telling people that what makes them spiritual is their very religion, but we know better. Or at least people should wake up and know better. Let’s not forget that history is full of crimes committed in the name of religion, right?

      Thank you for coming, Harleena. As I was telling Adrienne, because of my kitty’s situation, my research and learning mission right now, I’ve had much less time to than usual to spend on line visiting blogs.

      Have a great weekend.

    Hello Ms. Sylviane
    I trust you are well.
    I love this post and like you mentioned, I believe that some people do not understand being spiritual because of the ignorance which then creates a fear in their mind. They are afraid of tapping into who they really are.
    We are spiritual beings and we can enter those realms of spirituality.
    Some people may refer to that realm as God, or The Universe. Whatever terminology anyone uses, it is real and we need to keep fear at bay in order to live in that realm.

    My life changed because of the realm of Spirit. I was awaken to my real identity.
    Thank you for this awesome post.

      I Gladys,

      I’m so glad that you’ve got to know yourself better and wasn’t scared to get acquainted with your spirituality. True, so many people are scared. Even me as I am doing more in dept stuff now, there is that voice from my previous religion that’s trying to scare me off. I would lie to myself if I didn’t admit that, but I’m stronger now and I move forward one step at the time.

      What’s interesting is that I’ve been attracted by spirit since my early twenties, and went away from it for all this time, until I started being reacquainted to it went I turned 40.

      Thank you so much for your valuable comment.

    Hey Sylviane,

    I do know that it depends on who you speak with as to how they’ll define spirituality. I believe that it’s a journey to finding out who we really are. That includes love, our values, compassion, intuition, imagination, free will, creativity, etc. When you’re in a state of awareness then that’s when we can find the answers to pretty much anything. Kind of heavy right!

    I do think that a lot of people think that this has to do with religion and in a small way I think so too only because when you are in that “place” you do feel connected with God so people automatically think religion when God’s name is ever mentioned .

    You defined this well yourself and I’m sure you’ll have a lot to share in your book as well. I’m glad that you’ve started learning a lot more about yourself while on this journey too Sylviane. I think we never will really know ourselves right!

      Hi Adrienne,

      Yes, we will always discover things about ourselves in this life, and I feel that at times challenges our allowed so we can learn more.

      Because of my challenges with Sophie this year, I’ve learned a lot, and that’s also the reason why I’ve been online less this past weeks. Besides Sophie’s situation there are some things that I’m not going to take anymore in my life either. I need to go on overdrive, and the law of attraction has brought me everything I needed right now to work on.

      Yes, I’ll have lots to blog about in the coming weeks and I’ve got to work on that book too big time now.

      Thank you for coming, Adrienne, and have a great weekend.

  • William ButlerTwitter: wiarbu says:

    Hi Sylviane,
    I think your use of the term spiritual awakening is a very subjective thing.
    Some people would refer to such a thing as an Aha moment, an epiphany, a life-changing light-bulb moment. Some people think that experiencing a spiritual awakening is having a religious eye opener; a God-moment.

    I think the term means both 1) being aware of your true self and 2) being your true self. In this regard, anyone who live s in alignment with their authentic self, knows their unique purpose and value is certainly not napping through life.

    Kind Regards,
    Bill

      Hi William,

      I guess it’s a bit like the term God or Universe or High Power, it’s really the same thing named differently according to people beliefs, but a spiritual awakening to me is when you feel that that you are growing in the spiritual sense, and as you’re saying discovering more and more about your true self.

      Thank you for your feedback and have a wonderful day!

    Hey Sylviane,

    This was very insightful and I can actually put myself in your shoes. It seems like we went through similar experiences.

    I’ve read a lot of personal development and mindset books, but it was getting involved in the hobbies I’m doing now that really helped me put what I learned into practice to help me be more aligned with myself.

    I definitely agree that our society have put a fear of the unknown inside of us. With that said, the majority of us really don’t have a big interest, or believe that just going to church is going to make us more spiritual. But I see that the more you see yourself in other people, the more spiritual you get.

    With that being said, like you, I feel like I’m developing better relationships with people also. And also, I know what type of people I want in my life now versus those that I don’t want as oppose to when I was younger. And it seems like my groups of friends is getting smaller by the minute LOL… But I do see this as getting back into being aligned with myself, as well as I see this in others.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a fantastic rest of the week!

  • Albert says:

    Yes. Have had a spiritual awakening and it brings things into perspective. Thinking about WHY you do things puts them in a different light. Also, when you chase THINGS you tend to still want a little more than you have. Look at professional salaries of athletes, for example. It is not how many millions of dollars they make, but in comparing themselves to others. A life away from this thinking is what freedom really is. It is appreciating what you do have and making the most of it. Good article.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Albert and welcome to my blog!

      Sorry for the late reply, but I want you to know that I do appreciate your comment and good point here.

      You are so right, the very reason that those already millionaires always want more is because rather than being satisfied and thankful they’re looking at those who make more than they do. As you’re saying, they are “comparing’ which in my book it’s the worse thing one can do. We should never compare ourselves to anyone else. period.

      Thank you for coming.

  • Albert says:

    If you asked most people they would probably say there was some point in their lives that they thought God was at work – and that something bigger than them was evident. Some don’t like to admit it. Yes, you have free will to make choices,but you are not in control of the bigger picture.
    This awareness that changes how you perceive things can open up a new world to give you peace.
