the way you awaken is uniquely yours.

We all awaken differently. Some of us are slow to rise. Others rise and shine. Sometimes, even, we fall back to sleep…

People talk a lot about awakening as if it is a magical moment that changes everything forever. And while that can be the case, more often than not, it is a process that ebbs and flows throughout a lifetime.

For example, you may have an experience early in your life that shifts your perspective and opens your eyes to higher consciousness. This can be an exhilarating time! Life is fresh and inspired, brimming with the sweet nectar of Truth.

But, what happens when the shine of our Awakening wears off?

What happens when duty calls? When you are called back to work, back to the grind…back to reality? This is wear so many of us stall on our spiritual path. We get distracted. We get off our spiritual game because we don’t continue to fuel our awakening.

IT TAKES WORK TO STAY AWAKE.

Awakening itself is only half the battle. First, we have to wake up; then, we need to stay awake. We have got to be ever-vigilant not to fall back to sleep. Not to let the din of everyday life lull us back into unconsciousness.

“Real spiritual awakening is when something emerges from within you that is deeper than who you thought you were. So, the person is still there, but something more powerful shines through the person.” ~Eckhart Tolle

5 Ways to Empower Your Awakening

Awake? Well, let’s keep that momentum going! Here are a few simple ways to feed the fire of your soul’s growth:

1. CREATE A DAILY SPIRITUAL RITUAL
This is the singularly most important act of spiritual commitment. A simple daily practice (even if its only 15 minutes each day) will energize your growth. I talk in detail about how to build your own personal ‘sadhana,’ or spiritual ritual, in my blog post “How to Energize Your Life with A Daily Spiritual Ritual (that you will love!).”

2. BE CONTINUALLY LEARNING
Don’t be surprised if new books, videos, classes and workshops just sort of ‘fall into your lap.’ New opportunities are attracted to us to propel us forward in our growth. Follow the signs. Dig into anything that resonates. Wisdom comes in many forms, so be open to what comes to you!

3. USE YOUR INTENTION TO MANIFEST GROWTH
You have great power in your Intention…especially when you are awakening. Imagine your ultimate life…free, at peace, prosperous, healthy, full of love. Aligning yourself intentionally with these principles aligns you with the Law of Attraction, which magnetically manifests them in your life. A GREAT way to do this is with a Vision Board ~ you can grab a copy of my free manifestation booklet “How to Build the Ultimate Intuitive Vision Board.”

4. SPEND TIME ALONE
When we are alone, we aren’t really alone. We are with our Higher Selves. We are with God. Making time in your life to both talk and listen to wisdom from above is so important to our soul’s growth. True direction comes from within. In prayer, we speak to God; in meditation, we listen. And what is the faculty that God uses to communicate with us? Our Intuition. This leads us to our final, and most powerful way to empower our spiritual evolution…

5. LEARN TO RECOGNIZE + FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION
Your Intuition holds all of the answers you are looking for…and more. And, most of all, its singular purpose is to guide you to fulfill your highest potential in this world. It is your spiritual GPS. It infuses, within you, the highest wisdom, direction and inspiration in your life. It is your birthright. If you are alive, you have Intuition. So, tune into it, honor it and follow it through ~ you will be amazed at the unimaginable places it takes you! I created my Intuition Masterclass specifically to this purpose ~ to empower you to take the ultimate step in your spiritual enlightenment.

DON’T JUST AWAKEN…RISE!

Following through on your awakening in these ways will uplift your spirit in ways you can’t yet understand. When we wake up, we don’t just open our eyes ~ we open our spirits to higher consciousness and the frequencies of truth, love, beauty, wisdom, peace, strength and healing. This, in turn, raises our frequency as human beings and we begin to embody those very traits.

WE LITERALLY RISE.

And, THIS, is the secret to not just our spiritual growth and evolution, but to Enlightenment itself. Awaken to the light, and rise, my friends!
