5 Signs You’re Going Through A Spiritual Awakening

 A spiritual awakening can be a frightening experience to go through, particularly in a society that discourages asking questions. The following is a list of symptoms that you can expect to encounter along your journey. 

Don’t worry - you’re not going crazy, you’re becoming highly aware and it’s a process of adjustment.

1. You’re questioning things you never used to. You may start to question why you are expected to do or not do certain things. You might start to wonder why you have find a job, get married, have children or anything else your parents expect you to do. Stay calm and try to have rational discussions with your parents and see if you can come to a conclusion that makes sense for you.

2. You’re experiencing dramatic highs and lows. One day you might feel on top of the world and the next you might feel lower than you’ve ever been. This is a sign that you’re raising your vibration or elevating your consciousness. This is a common symptom whilst experiencing an awakening and is a great sign to watch out for. Try to observe your mental state over time by keeping a journal.

3. You don’t resonate with people you used to. You start to see people’s true intentions and understand why they behave the way they do. You may start to realise that friends you thought had your best interest at heart were actually using you for their own gain. Don’t judge them - recognise what their intentions are and distance yourself.

4. Your behaviour is changing dramatically. You may have once been the life and soul of the party and now you prefer to be alone. You may decide to stop consuming certain foods or drugs and you might break up with your current partner. These behavioural changes occur because your perspective is shifting and you need time away from others who aren’t yet awake to integrate new experiences.

5. You’re seeking answers. The stories you were once told don’t make sense anymore and you are now seeking more concrete answers. Whether it be the origin of the universe, religion or where our food comes from - you want answers that make sense to you instead of the ones you’re presented with. This thirst for knowledge will cause you to seek out knowledge and through this you will develop your own truths about the world you live in.

Along the journey of spiritual awakening you will encounter many people who are still “asleep” - recognise them and leave them to continue with their journey. It is not your responsibility to awaken them, they will learn in their own time - lead by example instead of trying to preach to others.

Keep in mind that it is dangerous to wake someone who is sleepwalking.

Peace & positive vibes.

Why Being A “Nice Person” Will Make You Miserable

 You don’t love yourself if you’re setting yourself on fire just to keep others warm. Just because you’re prepared to go out of your way to help others - doesn’t mean they will do the same for you. One of the biggest mistakes you can make in this life is believing everyone has the same heart as you. 

Being a “nice” person in the hopes that others will reciprocate can lead to them abusing your kind nature. They do this because they do not appreciate what you do for them - they have become entitled to your energy and expect you to continue go out of your way for them whilst neglecting yourself.

If you’ve been behaving this way so far - assess your life right now, how has it worked out for you so far? Are you surrounded by people who don’t do much for you? Are you tired and drained and wish someone would be there for you for once? Do you wish one of them would reciprocate what you do for them?

It’s time for you to start taking responsibility for how you feel and recognise your true worth. If you are prepared to do so much for others - why not do that for yourself? Prioritise yourself - do things that make you happy - and be unapologetic about it if they ask why you aren’t behaving the way you used to.

Life is too short to live it for anyone but yourself. Your time on the planet is limited and if you spend it trying to please others - who will make sure you’re pleased? Take a look around and ask yourself why you’re being so “nice” to everyone and see who’s reciprocating exactly what you do for them.

Self-love is all about making sure you are feeling good about who you are and what you do. Loving your life starts with loving yourself and you cannot do that when you prioritise others. Fill your own cup first - when it overflows, then you can allow others to drink from your abundant fountain of love.

You can’t pour from an empty cup - love yourself first.

Peace & positive vibes.

Why You Don’t Need To Give A F*ck

 There was a time when I cared about literally everything and it was absolutely exhausting. Caring about everything people said, did and thought was a complete waste of time. All of that time and energy I spent on them could have been used on me and creating a life that I love - so that’s what I did.

I had to carry out a “life detox” which consisting of me assessing who, what and where was no longer serving me and eliminating them from my life. “Friends” “family” and things that “everyone does” were removed and I felt much more at peace with myself for having gotten rid of them.

I’m living this life for me - no one else - so why should I care what they say or think about my lifestyle? Why do I have to acknowledge their feelings of insecurity about what I do or don’t do with my time? If someone is trying to make you feel insecure about making changes in your life it’s because they are uncomfortable with those changes.

Check yourself on what you’ve been doing so far and see if it’s working out for you. Many of you won’t be able to do this because it can be hard to admit that everything you were doing isn’t serving you. Be open to change and understand why it’s necessary - or you’ll just keep repeating the same mistakes.

There’s a reason you’re reading this. There’s a reason you’re not dead. There’s a reason for all the hardship you’ve faced so far - it’s up to you to figure out what that reason is. You aren’t going to find that reason in the opinions of others or just going along with what everyone else is doing - it takes self-discovery.

Spend time with yourself to find out what you enjoy and what you feel gives your life meaning and purpose. It is during this time that you will begin to understand why certain things had to happen and why others did not. Create your life based on what you’ve learnt from your experiences - not on what you’ve been told.

This life is yours - live it for yourself.

Peace & positive vibes.

This Is How You Start Winning

 Some people on the planet right now are incapable of change and that’s none of your business - why? Because every second you waste trying to change someone else is another second you could have deployed against improving yourself.

Self-awareness is one of the biggest keys to success because it allows you to audit yourself. In other words - you have to call yourself out on all the lies you’ve been telling yourself and others so far and decide how you want to proceed.

Take a look at everything you’ve achieved until now and everything you still want to achieve and ask yourself - why haven’t I done it yet? Only you will know the answer to that question and sometimes the answer is a hard one to accept.

I had to accept that I hadn’t achieved much because I was spending most of my time playing video games, watching TV and socialising. When you take responsibility for achieving your dreams and goals - you have to face some hard truths about your current lifestyle.

Self-awareness will keep you in check along the journey. Don’t start by pointing the finger outside, look within and understand what you need to change about yourself first. Once you’ve changed yourself you will see this change reflected in what you attract into your life.

Now is the time to make yourself accountable, now is the time to get up and start chasing your dreams. If you don’t check yourself on what your behaviour has attracted so far - you’ll keep adding to that ever-growing list of regrets. 

Choose to die with memories, not regrets - start making changes.

Peace & positive vibes.

#NoFearFriday

Why Are You Lying?

 We only lie to those we’re scared of. Whether you’re scared of losing someone, how they’ll react or the consequences of your actions - we lie in these situations because we fear the outcome. Lying is a fear-based reaction and I’m all about raising my frequency by facing my fears.

Honesty is the best policy - but not always the easiest one. When you know your actions will bring certain consequences - it’s up to you to face them instead of shying away from them. You can’t outrun the universal law of cause and effect - there will always be a reaction to every action.

I used to lie - a lot - I lied about who I was, what I was interested in and what I knew. These lies were told because I was seeking validation from building a false identity - instead of being honest about who I was. These lies built in number until I forgot the truth entirely.

When we create a false reality based on lies - we are building resistance in the emotional body. This resistance can manifest in poor mental & physical health, as well as anxiety and stress. Save yourself the hassle and be honest with yourself.

Being honest with yourself takes a great deal of self-awareness and is difficult to do. One day I took a look at myself in the mirror and said “No more”. No more being scared of the consequences of being myself, no more of this fear-based attitude towards life - no more lying. 

Since deciding to be honest with myself and everyone I choose to keep in my life - I’ve never felt more free. I can be 100% authentic to who I am and what I want without being scared of how others will perceive me. Honesty has liberated me from much of the anxiety I once felt - see what it can do for you.

Lying is a fear-based reaction, think about this the next time you feel the need to lie.

Peace & positive vibes.
