Personal Transformation: Spiritual Awakening
It would seem that religious rituals include the processes of spiritual awakening and enlightenment. An individual might be said to have experienced a spiritual awakening if they have had a religious experience in which they came into touch with the divine and the supernatural. It has been included in the customs and rituals of a variety of religious groups throughout the course of time.
Because it depends on the individual’s view and knowledge of deity and religion, attaining enlightenment is a matter of personal preference. It is also something that other individuals who do not share the same thoughts may find peculiar and even terrifying at times.
Even though the divine and the ultimate being are conceptualized in a variety of ways across many religious traditions, it seems that awakening experiences have both similarities and variances among themselves.
The concept that a person must remove themselves from this world in order to merge with God or other gods and goddesses is present in a variety of religious and spiritual traditions.
This concept is shared across many different faiths. Following the awakening, the individual will have a stronger connection to the world around them. In addition to this, they would develop an instinctive knowledge and comprehension of the world and the people in it.
Awakenings of the spirit are not limited to being attained through participation in religious practices and rituals. It is also possible to have this experience by reaching a peak, going through a near-death or death experience, having a psychic opening, or having a former life experience.
Those who have woken indicate that they went through tough shifts and transitions on several levels, including the physical, the cerebral, the emotional, and the spiritual. Nevertheless, the awakening has been described as euphoric by some individuals, despite the chaos and difficulties that it entails.
It is a personal transition, and those who have woken may feel many changes on a variety of levels, including their behaviors, habits, and way of life.
William James writes in The Varieties of Religious Experience that a spiritual awakening offers assurance and insight into truth that is incomprehensible by typical sensory and intellectual methods. James asserts that this kind of truth cannot be grasped by ordinary sensory or intellectual means. The event has the potential to alter a person’s outward behavior, attitude, character, and worldview, particularly if they have previously experienced the awakening.
For instance, those who have just had a spiritual awakening are likely to have experienced abrupt rushes of emotion. After having a religious experience, people often acquire sensitivities and allergies to certain foods.
According to a number of spiritual traditions, as a person’s mind and body become more receptive to divine and spiritual experiences, they also become more sensitive. When compared to how it was before the religious journey and completion, your body may now have a lower tolerance threshold for some things due to the fact that it has become more sensitive.
The senses are heightened and may become more acute than normal. People who have attained enlightenment are able to perceive glittering particles and auras around living things. When I closed my eyes, the colors seemed to be more vibrant, and I could even make out forms in dazzling color combinations.
Hearing is also much more acute than it was before. However, other individuals have testified that they were able to hear fewer noises as a result of the fact that they were exposed to a wider variety of sounds and had a more difficult time distinguishing between them.
Additionally, one’s senses of smell, taste, and touch are heightened. This is the reason why some people have an acute sense of smell and taste. It’s possible for rashes to appear on your skin at the same time as you’re experiencing periods of physical or emotional healing, the fulfillment of certain memories, or anything else that occurred in the past.
There might also be times when the awakened individual senses an unexpected surge of power suddenly washing over them. There are some individuals who would claim that they felt a chill go from their head to their toes, while there are others who will say that they felt a heat flow from their head to their toes.
To further emphasize the point, the change that a person goes through after experiencing a spiritual awakening is dependent on the manner in which they see and comprehend divine beings and organized religion. It is not possible for every individual who has had an enlightening experience to undergo all of these different kinds of personal changes. In certain traditions and faiths, these alterations are not permitted, while in others, they are seen as crucial to the practice of the religion.
