Spiritual awakening – Stage 5 

This stage had a big calling for me and it was said to be the stage of developing your spiritual gifts. The beginning of seeking a deeper connection with the source as you continue to tap into new learnings and miracles that are unfolding right before your eyes. Even though stage 5 is your main stage at this point, it is not uncommon to experience previous learnings and stages at the same time. You are just further in the process with more things making sense and coming full circle. But more about this later which is better described in stage 6.
Typical events experienced during this stage include:
Meditating – I believe meditation comes in many different forms. Most people might envision a person sitting on the ground, legs crossed in front of them with their eyes closed. To me, meditation was everything that calmed my soul and gave me peace of mind. It was something that I found in doing the things I loved whether it was doing art, listening to music or in my voracious reading attempts. It was fuel for my soul, but the most peaceful feeling I experienced out of all, was when I was in nature and felt as if I had returned home. And while I experienced joy in all activities, it was always nature that evoked that deep breath and a deep sigh of renewal. As if I was reborn and had acquired the strength to continue in real life and reality. 
It tied in with the experience of other mindful activities that were described which could also include yoga and Qigong. 
Creating was another, including painting, writing, singing etc. This one was huge for me as well with some activities spanning over several years. The paintings started after Sparky’s death and a talent or passion for such had prior been undiscovered. So did the writing and it was just recently that I had been inspired to pursue my passion of becoming a storyteller, a healer, somebody to share their own experiences in the hopes of benefitting others. I wrote a few times before but never at the level I am doing now and this blog is still in its infant stages. 
Other example events were studying healing modalities such Reiki. Honing your intuition by doing your own angel card readings. Strengthening your relationship with your spiritual guides and wanting to heal the world. 
Big daunting tasks that might seem overwhelming and you might ask yourself “Me, little ole me….heal the world”?. How exactly am I going to do that? I sure spend some time thinking about it and I have come to the conclusion that all I can ever do, is to do my part. To find my place and hopefully inspire a few along the way. I’m one, standing against the many who are still asleep, but I’m not alone and everybody has the potential to make a difference and contribute in their own way. Asleep or awake, we each have to find our own path and together we become the many that impact our daily life’s. 
Typical emotions expressed during this stage are said to be joy and eagerness, feeling the reconnection with yourself through your higher source. Finding your purpose and what you were meant to do, wanting to share your gift with others. It was a time things began to make more sense as it left me at a better vantage point to explain the emotions and experiences that I was living through. Intuitions materialized and premonitions became true. In many ways I felt as if I had become my own healer. I was on to improving my health and to live a healthier life style. Be more aware of healing foods and strangely, here too, it was that I searched the all knowing web and felt many times as if I had read these articles before. Or maybe I was doing something already without ever reading it. Being guided as if an inner voice was steering me. It was strange and it was something I couldn’t explain at the time. And then Pinterest came to my aid once more and I came across the mentioning of being an “Old soul” and a whole new roam to explore.

I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. I love your perspective on meditation and how you believe it is doing the things that you love and things that bring you peace. That’s good news for me because I have always wanted to start meditating, but it is pretty challenging for me to sit still.
    You are on a wonderful track with your spiritual awakening!

    1. Awe thank you, your words mean so much.
      To me meditation is finding inner peace, to stop the noise and to find joy in what you are doing. It’s good for the soul, your well being and as long as you are pursuing and don’t forget to feed your soul in a life that can get quiet hectic, I believe you allow yourself to experience life with a deeper meaning. So if I could say anything, I would say “Find your happy and pursue it as often as possible”
      Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment ❤️

      1. Thank you for the advice in meditation. I think one of my goals for the New Year is to incorporate meditation into my life more. I am trying hard to clean up my nutrition and my friends are suggesting to focus on creating a habit of eating clean before adding strenuous workouts. I think meditation would be a good enhancement. Thanks for sharing your journey!

You can always layer on once a habit is created and build upon it. Meditation in which ever from will bring you the peace and balance to see it through and stay motivated. Good luck in your journey 😉

  4. I meditate in a very similar way. One my my favourite times is driving to and from work. I turn the music off and get 45 minutes of peace and quiet. Strange thing but the traffic doesn’t affect me and the journey becomes very enjoyable.

  5. Your perspective on medication is exactly how I see it. I find that when I’m in a state of complete peace, it really can be anywhere I want, doing what it is that I like. Everyone is different and it’s important that people understand that! One shouldn’t feel discouraged if they cannot sit down and meditate like they think it’s supposed to be.

    XOXO,

    1. I just finished reading a book about old souls and it all makes perfect sense. I’m sure that you are an old soul as well, I can tell somehow. Intuition knows.
      I will share my findings soon and will cover the last two steps of spiritual awakening as soon as the craziness slows down a bit. ❤️

    1. Thank you very much and you are very welcome. Of course these are my own experiences and I understand that experiences will vary from person to person. I still find that there can be something helpful, perhaps something we can relate to each other and just like you, I find it interesting, reassuring and comforting to know that we are not alone.
      I can’t wait to read more about your own posts and get familiar with your blog. Thank you again for stopping by and taking the time to share your thoughts.

      1. My blog started yesterday and I am working on it, I am still learning how to figuring out on what do when it comes to saying what I feel on paper. It’s hard to put your feelings out there when you think that others are going to tell you something maybe that you don’t want to hear. But then again, that doesn’t matter in the end. What matters is what my heart is telling me to say at this time. I would love to get to know you in the sense of your thoughts and views on what makes you feel them words that you are writing. I know that you can’t spill all the beans out, but I love to learn from people that want to take the time to show me. That is what life is about the human connection. And that is becoming a lost art.

  6. Welcome to the world of blogging, it’s a great outlet for your feelings and my blog is still fairly new and in the building stages. Yes it can be hard to put your feelings out there, but only if you are afraid of being judged or fear you won’t be accepted. I’ve shed those feelings a long time ago and learned we can’t always control what happens, but we can always try to influence. The rest is up to everyone to decide. I’m glad you are here and that you have found this outlet for whatever reason or purpose it will serve you. I will read your entires / posts tomorrow after an super early day at work and touch base with you.
    I agree about the human connection and you can ask me anything in regards to my posts. I’m glad if I can help in any way.

      1. that is so very true with most of us ..Having said that, see even a non spiritual guy feels blissful when on vacations in a wonderful place with abundance of nature around- mountains,rivers etc…but a spiritually awakened guy remains blissful amidst the choas of daily routine – jobs,bosses,deadlines,health issues etc etc

      2. Very true and I outlined it in one of the steps when finding pleasure in the mundane. Nature is a weekly balance to my hectic life, a balance if you will and I believe that the seven stages of spiritual awakening has opened my eyes while helping me through a lot of those challenges.

      3. Dear Rhapsody , this concept of seven stages of spiritual awakening is really interesting and I would love to hear more from you regarding this..very politely but straightaway, I would like to ask you that during your spiritual journey ,have you ever experienced anything beyond the physical world,something divine or cosmic which cannot be explained by some logic..any so -called other world experience ?

      4. I have and you will find my posts explaining each step with my own experiences if you look through my blog. I recently made a post called “Wide awake” where I summed all stages of my spiritual awakening with the links found to those previous posts on the bottom.
