Spiritual Awakening: are you woke?


Kaylin Khusial and Taraya Edwards

Has anyone ever told you to “stay woke?” Often, there are uncovered secrets within the world. Some secrets are not meant to be hidden, yet some people are ignorant towards aspects of life that can change them indefinitely. It’s a shame that sometimes it is just a matter of unknowing or in this case not being “woke.”

Teenagers far too often are lost, and spend their years trying to find themselves. What most do not realize is that their full potential is buried within unlocking their mental facilities. Rather than physical adversities, the key to life is your mindset. In this journey, a lot of teens have been opened up to the deeper meaning of life by having a spiritual awakening. 

Spirituality is being connected to your own spirit or soul rather than relying on the materialistic world and other people for genuine satisfaction. What exactly is spiritual awakening, though? Derived from the website spiritualawakeningprocess.com, “A spiritual awakening is the dissolving of the illusion that you are separate from oneness. In this profound revelation, a person’s energy moves and starts to transform you. It heals old wounds, dissolves false beliefs and illusions, and shifts you towards your truest way of expressing yourself and living your life.” The existence of the spiritual realm is questionable to some, but a blessing to many. 

A spiritual connection is a sense of bettering yourself, as connecting spiritually brings more serenity and strength to the development of your mindset. There is no single way that people experience spiritual awakening. Every individual experiences it in their own, unique ways. However, there are several signs that can help you recognize if you are being awoken. 

One sign of spiritual awakening includes angel numbers, or repetitive sequence numbers such as 111, 222, 333, etc. Numbers have their own, very deep meanings, and they each carry their own vibrational frequencies with messages. They can appear anywhere, including time, license plate numbers, book numbers, etc. Nevertheless, if you happen to see number sequences anywhere, do not ignore it as you would be ignoring your spiritual awakening. Instead, find its deeper meaning.

Another form of spiritual awakening can be regulation of what you consume, as some turn to veganism or no longer eat unhealthy foods. The phrase “you are what you eat” turns from metaphorical to technical. Spiritual beings believe that consuming meat is the equivalent to consuming death, as animals are killed in order to be eaten. From that perspective, carnivores are consuming the negative energy of animals that suffered during their slaughter. Veganism ultimately clears your consciousness and raises your vibrations.

A sign of being woke is realizing that much of what you were taught, has been a lie. You stop believing multi-media, and you start questioning the authenticity of everything. Once you start looking deeper into it, your mind is bewildered as you further expand your intuition. You begin to see in between the lines of society.

Autumn Gales, a senior at UACHS offers her perspective on spiritual awakening as she discusses the difficulties about her spiritual journey. 

“The difficulties are facing your problems head on and bettering yourself, like the bad parts of yourself, to become the best you can be” Gales said. 

She goes along to discuss how she handles her problems.

“When the problem occurs in my life I have to sit down and ask why did this happen, what did I learn from this, why do I feel this way and I just experience and progress on,” Gales said. 

You no longer find energy for things that do not bring value into your life. A lot of spiritual figures contribute time into themselves as they invest in things such as sage, incents, crystals, meditation, and manifestation.

Whether you believe in spirituality or not, curiosity is always a blessing. When looking for yourself, you may come across the spiritual realm and wonder where it was the whole time you were lost. Regardless of how you experience your awakening, the result remains the same: serenity and understanding, not just of the world but of yourself.
