Have you ever had a spiritual awakening? I think we all have but most of us would not know if it hit us straight in the face. They are the moments when you find yourself with a totally silent mind and see things perhaps for the first time not through concepts but solely as they are in this moment. Here are some ways that people have achieved spiritual awakening through the years and some tips for you to help speed up the process.

Being in Nature - Spiritual awakening can sometimes come to you after you have been in nature for long periods of time. Nature is a connection with what our true identity is and the source of what created us. Connecting with this can make your mind still and you will have lots of mini awakenings.

Death or illness - If you are ill or close to death you can often have mini awakenings of even one huge one. You will realize at some level logically or deeper that you are not your body. Your body is something that is in transit but you are something that never changed. You might know this in your head now but do you actually believe it and know it to be true?

Family member illness - This one is pretty much the same as the last point except you are viewing it from an external point of view. You see someone else really ill if dying and you notice that they are still there despite huge bodily changes and maybe even amputations. If they pass away then you notice that their body still remains whilst they are no longer there. This is a strange experience for people who have never seen it happen before.

Meditation - This is pretty much one of the only real ways to make yourself have a spiritual awakening. Nearly all the previous spiritual awakening methods haven't worked because you have tried but have just been the result of luck. Do not worry about meditating though. You will get amazing at it with practice like anything else. It is tough at first because your mind will pull you here and there with its nonsense. After a while, you will be able to experience still mind at will though and that is incredible.

All in all, if you have experienced a spiritual awakening in the past, even a small one I think you know how amazing and beneficial they are. If you have lots in life already but feel unfulfilled still this is probably where you are lacking.
