Spiritual Thursdays: Awakenings…

awakening

 

Peace Soulstars,

Most of you have heard of the term “awakening“.  Some may not be aware of the paradigm shift which is affecting the consciousness of many.  In short, this paradigm shift involves changing from an old way of thinking and doing things to a new way.  It’s more complex when you start to really look into what all comprises this shift but in general terms it is just about “out with the old, in with the new”.   We’re all witnessing these changes before our eyes.  Depending on your level of consciousness you get it while others not so much.   You miss the mark when you automatically assume that the outcome or goal is to become positive all of the time.  Another misconception is that the process is a pleasant experience.

Unless you’re living under a rock, you notice that people are changing   their lifestyle to include what they eat, the way they live, how they treat one another and even to the extent of questioning their life purpose.  Then, on a larger scale we even begin to make changes on a macro level where we not only question what affects us in our immediate surroundings but on a global scale.  Hence, the increase of protests against police brutality, violence in general, and citizens using their voice to bring awareness to other social issues.

There are levels to awareness and they are different for everyone because all of us on our own path.   It’s not all what it seems either.  That’s why it’s not for the fainthearted and when things get really real you either push through or fold by returning to the old ways.  Ego is not your friend during enlightenment. It’s not all positive either.  I could list some signs but they vary depending on the person and I don’t want to evoke any feelings of inferiority if you find that you cannot relate.  I think the following puts it simply and has more universal meaning:
