The Dark Side of Spiritual Awakening


4). You come face to face with your shadow side

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung

When we start meditating or being aware of who we truly are, we have to come face to face with the things we have hidden in our subconscious. It is a process of cleansing and transmuting wherein all that needs to be transformed will be brought to our attention whether we like it or not.
Once we start to accept ourselves fully we begin to awaken to see the cosmic miracle we really are.


5). You realize for the first time that you are a powerful creator

When you are awakened there is no place to hide. You can lie to everyone but you can’t lie to your own self.
Once you start awakening, you realize that you are a powerful creator. You acknowledge the freedom that you have to create your own life.
You realize that life has the meaning that we give it. You start aligning with your true self and start taking action from that place.
You realize that even if you stumble you have the capacity to build yourself again.
