Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening -- A spiritual awakening usually involves a realization or opening to a sacred dimension of reality and may or may not be a religious experience. Often a spiritual awakening has lasting effects upon one's life. The term "spiritual awakening" may be used to refer to any of a wide range of experiences including being born again, near-death experiences, and mystical experiences such as liberation and enlightenment. (Definition from Wikipedia)

"the awakening or quickening of God's people to their true nature and purpose." Robert Coleman

2012 introduces us to a new way of thinking as we wonder what will happen in December, if anything at all. Some believe the coming event will not be the end of the world physically, but a spiritual awakening of the human race.

According to an article by Geoffrey Hoppe and Tobias, there are twelve signs we can look for within ourselves to reveal our state of awakening. Are you moving toward your spiritual awakening?

Here are the top 5 signs.

1) Body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back.
2) Feeling of deep inner sadness for no apparent reason.
3) Crying for no apparent reason - similar to #2 above.
4) Sudden change in job or career.
5) Withdrawal from family relationships.
