Welcome back for part 2 of my spiritual awakening.
As I came to embrace these spiritual abilities that were waking up within me, I started to notice that my perspective was changing. What I once feared, I now sought out. I wanted to learn and understand how these gifts worked for me. Instead of hiding from spirit or closing off that connection, I was ready to embrace it. Every time I hear the song “Show Yourself” from the movie, “Frozen 2” I connect to the energy of the moments my perception shifted.
In the beginning stages, everything felt so overwhelming, so new. At the same time it all felt so familiar. As I look back on my life I can now see all of the times spirit was communicating to me. I could see and hear things all of my life. I could feel different energies in a room as long as I can remember. I didn’t have a name for these things, so I would dismiss them. When I was afraid I would shut it down completely. These things sure didn’t appear like how they do on TV and in movies. I didn’t have a reference point for what I was experiencing. Yes, these spiritual abilities felt new and I was uncertain, yet at the same time it felt like a remembering of who I’ve always been. Uncovering those hidden truths that have been within me all along.
I sought to strengthen my connection and had such a desire to understand how these gifts worked for me. I’ve always had a heart for service and my greatest desire is to be able to help others. Hiding in the shadows, dismissing these experiences, was no longer an option. I was ready, and I wanted to learn.
I no longer hid from these experiences. I embraced them. I grew impatient, if I’m being honest, because I wanted to understand everything. I wanted to know how all of this worked. How do I help people? How do I use these spiritual experiences and abilities to bring healing to others? I asked more and more for spirit to be present in my life. I asked who my guides were and how they were working with me. I no longer wanted to wait for things to just happen, instead I was an active participant.
Once I embraced these experiences and said yest to spirit, these abilities began to grow and expand. I was presented with opportunities to learn, mentors and teachers to help guide me. I have grown and stepped into who it is that I was always meant to be. My spiritual awakening was waking up to the knowledge that these gifts have always been apart of who I am.
