No matter your level of consciousness or the level of spiritual awakening that you have reached, there will come a point in your spiritual journey where you will know that you have made great progress and then suddenly… nothing.
Positivity flew out the window, prophetic visions and lucid dreams were replaced by normal lower consciousness ideals and mindfulness was replaced by hyperactive patterns of thought. You simply cannot make the connection that you have felt and it seems impossible to return to the higher level of light, love, and consciousness that you are looking for.
Everything you try to move again seems to fail as if an invisible roadblock has been placed right in front of you, leaving you perplexed, what’s going on? It is a path that cannot be avoided, but why does it happen?
Spiritual roadblocks are designed to allow you to slow down and take a break. Your initial spiritual awakening may have been so complete that your mind now needs time to reorganize. A reform of belief systems, perceptions of the world and perceptions of yourself is needed here.
These periods can be extremely frustrating and sometimes even painful if the cycle takes you to another dark night of the soul. Navigating this rocky terrain requires patience and gentleness with yourself, in order to navigate the rough waters, safely on land.
Determining the root cause of spiritual, developmental dead ends is crucial to getting you back on the road.
1. You need to heal:
Spiritual awakening can bring suppressed memories and emotions from your unconscious back to your consciousness. Like past lives, things you may have forgotten or things you didn’t even know happened, can come to the surface.
You can even begin to dissociate yourself from these memories, avoiding believing that they are the fruit of your imagination.
2. You are angry:
Any psychologist will tell you that anger comes from a wide variety of underlying causes. However, when it comes to anger from a spiritual awakening, we can usually narrow the field a little.
You still have hidden repressed memories, not yet brought to the surface as well as not forgiving those memories brought to your consciousness.
3. You have developed an over-inflated sense of self:
When you wake up, you feel on top of the world, you feel like you’ve “finally arrived” and looking back at those who haven’t yet reached your level of consciousness, you can’t help but feel “special”.
Make no mistake, spiritual enlightenment and the evolution of consciousness is something to celebrate!
However, spiritual enlightenment is the ultimate goal for all of humanity, not just for a select few.
The more you associate yourself with this identity of being different or special, that is to say, according to Freud, “motivated by self-satisfaction and pleasure”, the more you fight with your “superego”, which makes it impossible to maintain a current awareness of acceptance and love, thus hampering the pursuit of your spiritual growth.
Quite simply, the more you think you’ve arrived, the more you have nowhere to go. No matter how much you want to continue on your quest to achieve constant spiritual fulfillment, your cup is full and should be emptied.
4. You are disappointed with the current world status:
After much euphoria and exploration of the higher realms of life, gaining wisdom and understanding of your universally connected multi-dimensional existence, you find yourself – human again. This can be a major disappointment. The power that you exuded in the higher realms is not manifested in your current physical state and this can cause a lot of discomfort and impatience.
You may also feel distant from a large part of society because you have been gifted with great wisdom and wish to share your knowledge, yet for those who are not “enlightened” your perceptions and ideals are considered unrealistic and exuberant.
After much effort in trying to teach others your way, you feel more discouraged than appreciated. Feeling that your hands are chained, watching the masses fall into the same old cycles of fear, attachment, and conformity to the ruling oligarchy.
5. You’ve fallen back into old patterns of behavior:
Do you remember when you first made contact? The moment when everything opened up for you in the blink of an eye and your whole world changed. You have seen the reason and the meaning behind all that is, was, and is still to come.
Do you also remember how you felt when you realized that you were a pawn in the game, the slave of a system that seemed to be winning?
This is your reminder.
What we were exposed to during our awakenings was real and true, so hold fast and hold firm because we are the change and we are the people the world has been waiting for– all of us.
6. You are not listening to your heart:
Although we are all connected globally, hearts beating at the same rate, we are still unique. Each of us has a piece to a larger puzzle that paves the way for enlightenment. None of us see the world from a fully uniform basis of perception and it is in this uniqueness that the purpose of your life resides. This piece of the puzzle that you have to bring to the table and to do that, you have to follow your heart.
We always receive subtle signals, synchronicities and gentle nudges from the universe: a signpost for light in a world that can sometimes feel enveloped in darkness. When your mind fails to break out of its current spectrum of reality, your heart will always guide you along the path you seek.
Trust your heart.
7. You continue to think you are unworthy:
Due to the major cultural, societal and religious indoctrination, a spiritual awakening can naturally be interpreted as an external event, over which you had little or no control.
A gift from the gods or from God, because your consciousness projects and is seen outside the physical body. As such, feelings of unworthiness can immediately take control of the control center in your mind and many will feel they have been blessed with such a wonderful, undeserved gift.
Although there are many gods, bodhisattvas, and guides who can help you on your journey of enlightenment, the realization of authentic power is the ultimate liberation.
This authentic power comes from within your own subconscious, the one that is already part of you; it’s just in your DNA.
By making the unconscious conscious and advancing memory, wisdom and knowledge unfold knowing that you control your own destiny. Everything you need is already within you.
So, if you are stuck on your journey of spiritual awakening, meet your anger with love, follow your heart in all your ways and remember that you are still worthy.
