Two Types of Awakening. Which One Are You Experiencing?

You have read about Awakening, but you don’t know if it is happening to you? This information will help. Keep reading.

Typically there are two types of awakening.

The Dramatic Oh-My-God-What-Is-Happening Awakening 

This is the kind of awakening where literally your world falls apart. You have a traumatic accident, life-changing event, near-death experience, lose a job, spouse, home. Something big happens and you look around and your life is no longer what it used to be. This event triggers a shift in perception so big that odd things begin to happen such as…

You experience Universal love for yourself, others, or the whole planet. or

You can feel your own conciseness and you know you are way more than your body. or

You can feel a sense of nothingness and everything at the same time. or

You have shifts in perception where you see beings, dead people, visions.

This type of awakening is easy to identify because it is extremely life-altering. It is also the type that we hear about most. Think Echart Tolle, Byron Katie, Matt Kahn. 

The Fruit-Ripening Awakening

This process of awakening is much slower. It is like being awakened by a gentle hand on your shoulder rocking you back into reality from your slumber. This awakening is systematic and progressive. You have experiences that can be dramatic but they happen over time so that you can integrate them into your life. So, just like fruit that slowly ripens until it is ready to be picked, that is what this type of awakening feels like. It is occurring. Shifts are happening. You may not notice the difference day to day but over the long haul, Spirit is working its magic on you. This process of awakening is the most common.

Why does this matter to you? Because if you are waking up it can be overwhelming to the human senses. You are moving into a new way of being. Understanding what is happening and why quiets the doubt. Knowing that other people have been through similar experiences helps the human mind calm down.

You are awakening, now what? First and foremost, know that you are in control of your experiences (even if it doesn’t feel that way). You can ask them to stop at any time if they make you uncomfortable. Second, ask for help. Awakenings have been occurring since humans first began asking the big questions. So, there are people out there who have navigated their own awakenings. Reach out for guidance.
