Spirituality shouldn’t restrict you, only free you – my thoughts on the spiritual world.

As I’ve been coming to terms with my own truth about the spiritual world, the world of the mysterious and divine, I’ve realized that spirituality is meant to free you, not restrict you. If your spiritual beliefs place fear in your heart then I think there is something wrong. There should be no fear and there should be no judgement when it comes to spirituality.

Spirituality is about love and oneness. It’s about bringing humanity together, not separating or discriminating. It’s about transcending the physical realm where all we see are the differences between one another, into the spiritual realm where we are all one. We are all connected to the same source.

Spirituality transcends race, gender, and physical appearance. Those who are truly in touch with their spiritual side do not discriminate based on such differences. It’s about realizing that we are all just spirits. We are all just spirits living inside of these human bodies. And because of this, discrimination based on our physical appearance is incredibly meaningless.

I believe that regardless of what another person’s spiritual beliefs are there should be no judgement. For that only further separates humanity. We should all be looking toward one another with love, positivity, and acceptance.

6 Signs Signifying The Dark Night of the Soul: This is Not Your Average Case of Depression

As seekers of spiritual knowledge, many of us will go through a period in our lives called the ”Dark Night of the Soul.”

If you are experiencing the Dark Night of the Soul as you read this article, keep in mind that this is all for a purpose. It is all for the sake of reaching the next level in your spiritual journey.

The Dark Night of the Soul is not your average case of depression. It is an extreme low point in our lives where we suffer mentally, spiritually, and physical. During the experience you will feel a sense of hopelessness and despair as you seem to lose all purpose in living. Your perception of reality will be severely distorted, and the way you view life will be abnormally negative.

As painful as the experience may be, you should think of the Dark Night of the Soul as a beautiful experience. A sacred ritual with the purpose of taking you to the next level in your spiritual journey.

The Dark Night of the Soul very often signifies the beginning stages of a spiritual awakening.


6 Signs Signifying the Dark Night of the Soul:

1) Spiritual depression – you begin to doubt everything you thought you knew about your spiritual beliefs. For very spiritual people this will be the toughest part of the experience. The world will appear as if it is one big lie. You may doubt your reason for existing and lose all meaning in your life.

2) Extremely stressful situations –  everything you thought couldn’t go wrong…goes wrong. For example, you may go through severe financial hardship – being unable to pay your bills, getting laid off from your job, an eviction notice from your landlord comes out of no where. Basically, the universe just bombards you with the most stressful life situations all at once.

3) Rapid change in your life – things begin to change in your life at such a dramatic pace that it is just overwhelming. You feel like you cannot keep up and are being swept away by the pace of the world.

4) You feel lost and alone – you feel as if no one can understand what you’re going through. And if no one around you shares your spiritual beliefs then you will feel more alone than ever.

5) Psychically and mentally drained – you experience feeling lethargic, sleeping all the time, getting sick too easily. You may feel a severe lack of energy and have trouble performing the basic duties that are necessary to live your life.

6) Depression – you don’t find much joy in the things that used to give you pleasure in the past. You have trouble getting out of bed, socializing with friends, etc. Like I mentioned before, this is not your average case of depression. However, you will experience normal depression symptoms on top of everything else.


My advice to you if you are going through the Dark Night of the Soul as we speak…just surrender to it all. Realize what you’re going through and accept it. Accept the fact that this period in your life is all for a reason. It is all necessary, and you WILL get past this.

The universe is not making you suffer so much without a reason. This is just a step in the awakening process. It is all for the sake of killing your old self so that you can emerge a new man. As cliche as it sounds, “Only by seeing the dark, will you be able to see the light.”

As you finally come out of the Dark Night you will feel a sense of relief that is almost laughable. Your perception of the world will be clearer than ever. Soon enough you will be able to look back at this experience and laugh at the whole thing.

Be grateful that you went through such a process. By experiencing such a dark period in your life now, the hardship you experience in the future will be nothing compared to this.

 

 

 

11 Signs You Are Going Through A Spiritual Awakening

Going through a spiritual awakening can be quite the frightening experience. You may feel like your whole world has been flipped upside down, complete 360 double back flip with a twist. You may even feel like you are going insane.

Keep in mind that you are going to be okay, don’t freak out!

There are many others who live in the exact same world as you that are going through the exact same thing.

So just take a deep breath, relax, and stay positive. The unpleasant symptoms are only temporary. You will be back to your normal self in no time! Well…maybe not your normal self…even better than that, your true self.

You may need to take time away from the world when you are going through the awakening process. It can be hard to function like usual and alone time may be just the remedy you need to get back up to speed.

Here are 11 signs that you might be going through a spiritual awakening

Note: not everyone goes through every single one of these symptoms. However, generally you will go through these 11 signs as you begin to awaken into your true self.

  1. Synchronicity – You start to experience synchronicity – seeing repeating numbers such as 1111, 222, 333 on the norm. This could be anywhere – on your phone, receipts, clocks, etc.
  2. Change in Sleep Patterns – You experience waking up in the middle of the night on a regular basis. This could be at odd times such as 3:33am or 4:44am. You may also need more, or less sleep than usual to feel like your usual self.
  3. Hypersensitivity – You become unable to tolerate things like loud noises and strong smells. Emotionally, you may be a bit unstable. You are likely going to be on a emotional roller coaster. If you are an empath then you will feel the emotions of those around you more intensely.
  4. Change in Perception – Your perception of the world has changed dramatically and you begin seeing the world without a filter. Both the good and bad aspects of the world will become clearer as you gain more and more clarity.
  5. Change in Diet – The food you were eating prior to all of this just doesn’t do it for you anymore. The jack-in-the box you loved so much in the past starts to repulse you. You get stomach aches when you eat too much fatty/processed foods. You start craving healthier foods. Drugs give you a headache, like tobacco or caffeine.
  6. Feeling Good, Feeling Great! – You feel good for a reason you can’t exactly pinpoint. You feel an almost euphoric sensation throughout your entire being. You feel more peaceful and zen than you ever have before.
  7. Dark Night of the Soul – During the very beginning of your spiritual awakening process you may experience an extreme low. This will likely be just about the worst you have ever felt in your life. Everything that you thought couldn’t go wrong…goes wrong. However, keep in mind that this is only temporary.
  8. Intolerance  – You become intolerant towards superficiality and shallow conversations. People who are overly materialistic start to be a major turn off.
  9. Searching For a Purpose – Your curiosity and thirst for knowledge has heightened. You feel like you were meant to do something important with your life. You have a strong sense of urgency to find your true purpose in life.
  10. Freedom Has Arrived! –  You feel like your shackles have finally been torn off and you are free. Your whole body will feel a whole lot lighter.
  11. Seeking Meaning In Your Life – Suddenly, coming home from work and watching TV for 5 hours doesn’t seem so interesting any more. You crave deep conversations and need some real substance in your life.

Again, the negative symptoms are only temporary and everything is going to be okay. Eventually you will feel pure bliss as you become comfortable with yourself and start to accept what is happening to you.

11:11 Do You See Repeating Numbers? Are You Experiencing Synchronicity? 2:22 3:33

Have you been seeing repeating numbers such as 1111, 222, or 333 on the norm?

Have you been experiencing a series of strange occurrences that seem too timely to be mere coincidences?

Well, you may have been receiving signs from the universe without even knowing it!


Synchronicity

The term ‘synchronicity’ was created by Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychologist who founded analytical psychology. These ‘strange occurrences’ are likely not so strange at all. It is just the universe trying to communicate with you the only way it knows how.

“Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.” -Carl Jung

If you have been experiencing synchronicity then it means that the universe is trying to tell you something…something important. Likely, it is the case that the universe is trying to get you back on track with your true purpose, whatever that may be. Or, it could be the universe trying to tell you that you are already on the right track and that you should keep moving forward.

If you really think you have been experiencing synchronicity then I advise you to trust your intuition. The only way to truly understand these messages from the universe is to understand the language. The universe’s favorite language is in the form of numbers. It would be wise to brush up on your Numerology in order to fully understand what the universe is trying to tell you.

Examples of synchronicity:

  1. Carl Jung’s example: One day, Jung was treating a patient who spoke about a dream she had the night before. In the dream she spoke of a golden scarab. The next day, Jung heard a ‘thump’ on his window. He opened the window and what do you know! There was a golden scarab. He brought the scarab to her the next day and she began to heal.
  2.  The most common experience: You wake up in the morning, look at your phone, and you see that the time is 11:11. You don’t think much of it at first, but the same thing keeps occurring morning after morning. You see the same thing 3 days in a row. At this point it starts to become creepy and that’s when you start googling the meaning of 1111.
  3. You may see numbers everywhere you go. You could be driving and see 3 cars with licence plate numbers containing 333. Then right at that moment you receive a text from your friend at 3:33 pm. You notice these occurrences and start to get a strange feeling inside. Don’t ignore this feeling, seek knowledge!

The repeating numbers and their meanings

1111 – This is an angel number. 11 is a master number signifying a heightened sense of intuition. The universe is trying to get your attention. If you are seeing this on the norm, it is likely a sign of a spiritual awakening.

222 – Dreams are becoming a reality. If you find yourself seeing this number on the norm, you should take control over your thoughts. Your thoughts are being manifested into the real world. 22 is a master number associated with the master builder.

333 – 33 is a master number. It is associated with master teachers, or ascended masters (great spiritual teachers who roamed the earth long ago) such as Jesus. It means that they are close to you now and wish to assist you and protect you.

555 – The number 5 signifies change. If you regularly see 555 then big changes are coming into your life. Brace yourself!

Keep in mind that synchronicity is not always in the form of repeating numbers.

For example, you may look at your phone and see 4:55, or 5:44. Let’s say you see these numbers very often and for 5 days in a row. If that’s the case then it is likely another sign from the universe.

4:55 = The number 4 in Numerology is associated with hard work. The number 5 is associated with change.

Let’s say you have been having money issues on your mind recently but you have been slacking off. This could be a message from the universe trying to get you back on track, telling you to stop being so damn lazy! Work and things will change!

Again, if you truly want to understand what the universe is trying to tell you then you need to learn the language. Learning what the numbers mean through Numerology is the key.


Personally, I have been experiencing synchronicity for a while now. I’m not sure for how long but I only began to notice as soon as I was introduced to Numerology.

So many experiences have happened to me that it’s not even funny anymore.

Waking up and seeing 11:11 over and over.

Sleeping soundly in the middle of the night and then suddenly awakening, coupled with a strange feeling inside. Then looking at my phone and seeing that it is 3:33am and my phone is charged to 33%.

I could really go on and on…

The World of the Mysterious and Divine, from an INFJ Perspective

This was the title that I came up with when I first created this blog. However, I never really explained what the title meant. I suppose the “world of the mysterious and divine” part is self-explanatory, but what about the “INFJ perspective” part?

What is an INFJ perspective anyway?

Is it suppose to be different from the perspective of everyone else?

The World of the Mysterious and Divine, from an INFJ Perspective

We are all human beings and we all live in the same world. No matter who you are or what you are, there is no denying that fact. However, this does not mean that we all perceive the world the same way. INFJs for example take in the world via intuition. My belief in the “world of the mysterious and divine” is based on my intuition. I believe that this is quite abnormal compared to a vast majority of the world.

The majority of the world will see things like Astrology or Numerology and instantly dismiss them. This is because quite frankly, these studies do not make any sense logically. There is absolutely no scientific evidence to prove that these studies are true. People who only rely on logic will have an incredibly hard time believing any of this stuff. And that’s okay because we all perceive the world in different ways.

My intention from the beginning was to share my thoughts on the spiritual world from my own perspective. Recently, I feel like I have not been using this blog as I originally intended. However, from today onward I am going to get back on track. I wish to dive even deeper into the spiritual world, deeper than I ever have before.

I want to find my own truth about the world and strengthen my own spirituality. Then I wish to share my thoughts with the world in the hope of helping someone out there, somewhere.

This is the true purpose of this blog.
