Journey to the Higher Self: Understanding Ascension and Spiritual Awakening

spiritual awakening
Embarking on the path of spiritual awakening is like setting off on an adventure to discover the depths of your true self. If you're reading this, you're likely already on this journey and may have encountered some bewildering experiences. Whether you've felt a surge of energy coursing through your spine, an inexplicable sense of peace, or even moments of confusion and upheaval, you're not alone. These are signs that you're moving towards a higher state of being—what many refer to as ascension.

What is Spiritual Awakening?

Spiritual awakening is often described as a profound shift in consciousness. It's a realisation that there's more to life than what meets the eye. This awakening can come suddenly, sparked by a significant life event, or gradually, through meditation, introspection, and personal growth. It’s a journey from the ego-driven self to a state of higher consciousness, where you begin to perceive the interconnectedness of all things and feel a deeper connection to the universe.

The Kundalini Awakening

One of the most powerful aspects of spiritual awakening is the Kundalini awakening. Imagine a dormant serpent coiled at the base of your spine. When it awakens, this energy serpent rises through the chakras, or energy centers, of your body, leading to profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes.

A Kundalini awakening can be intense. Some people experience physical sensations like tingling, heat, or vibrations. Others might have vivid dreams, heightened intuition, or sudden emotional releases. It can be disconcerting if you weren't actively seeking this experience. But know this: a Kundalini awakening is a natural process of your spiritual evolution, and it signifies that you're ready to embrace a higher level of consciousness.

Challenges on the Ascension Path

The journey to the higher self is not without its challenges. As you ascend, old patterns, beliefs, and unresolved emotions may surface, demanding your attention and healing. This can feel overwhelming, but it’s a crucial part of the process. Here are some common challenges:

1. Emotional Turbulence: As you release old energies, you might experience mood swings, anxiety, or even depression. This is a sign that you're purging what no longer serves you.
2. Physical Symptoms: Headaches, fatigue, and other unexplained physical symptoms can occur as your body adjusts to higher frequencies. It's essential to listen to your body and take care of it during these times.
3. Feeling Isolated: Spiritual awakening can make you feel like you're alone on this journey. Your perceptions and priorities might shift, making it challenging to relate to those who aren't on the same path.
4. Existential Crisis: Questioning the nature of reality, your purpose, and the meaning of life can be unsettling but is a natural part of spiritual growth.

How a Coach Can Help

Navigating the waters of spiritual awakening can be daunting, but you don't have to do it alone. An ascension coach can be an invaluable guide on this journey. Here's how a coach can assist you:

1. Personalised Guidance: A coach can help you understand your unique experiences and offer personalised advice tailored to your spiritual journey.
2. Emotional Support: Having someone like Miranda, from Heart Based Healing Centre, who understands the process can provide much-needed emotional support and validation. She can help you navigate difficult emotions and provide tools for emotional healing.
3. Practical Tools: An ascension coach can introduce you to practices like meditation, breathwork, grounding exercises, and energy healing techniques that can help you manage symptoms and accelerate your ascension.
4. Accountability and Encouragement: An ascension coach can keep you motivated and accountable, ensuring you stay committed to your spiritual practices and continue to make progress.

Moving Forward on Your Journey

Remember, your spiritual awakening is a deeply personal journey. It's about discovering your true self and aligning with your highest purpose. Here are some tips to help you move forward:

1. Embrace the Process: Trust that everything you're experiencing is part of your growth. Embrace the highs and the lows with an open heart.
2. Stay Grounded: Grounding practices like spending time in nature, mindfulness, and physical exercise can help you stay centred amidst the changes.
3. Seek Community: Connect with others who are on a similar path. Spiritual communities, online forums, and local groups can provide support and companionship. Miranda is involved in, a community space in Bulli near Wollongong devoted to events that support both consciousness and community.
