Are you wondering how to start your spiritual journey? Do you feel the time has come for personal transformation but aren’t sure where to begin? In this article, I’ll reveal how to start your spiritual awakening journey and open the doorway to your full soul potential, using eight simple techniques.

What is Spiritual Awakening?

Spiritual awakening is a profoundly transformative process.

It involves a fundamental shift in your perception of self, understanding of the universe, and way of life.

It’s not a linear path but a modular journey where three key processes run side-by-side and interact.

Spiritual Awakening Process #1: Transformation of Mind and Consciousness

The first major process of spiritual awakening is the complete transformation of your mind and consciousness.

This noticeable aspect of awakening changes the way your mind works and your sense of self.

Your thoughts align more with higher truths, and you begin to see life from a broader, more elevated perspective.

This is achieved by integrating your conscious mind with your higher self and deconstructing the ego.

Understanding how to start your spiritual journey involves embracing these changes in your mental and spiritual framework.

Spiritual Awakening Process #2: Increased Energetic Potential

The second process involves significant energetic changes within your body.

This includes chakra cleansing and rebalancing, as well as the awakening of kundalini energy.

These changes can manifest in various ways, depending on whether your experience is more mind-based or energetic.

Ultimately, at the end of your spiritual journey, you will have increased your energetic capacity substantially.

Knowing how to start your spiritual awakening journey can help you better manage these energetic shifts.

Spiritual Awakening Process #3: Learning Modules

The third process encompasses the completion of ten major learning modules.

These life lessons are essential for growth and development during your awakening journey.

While the specifics can vary, these modules generally cover critical areas necessary for your spiritual evolution.

They help deconstruct the ego and develop higher-order qualities, allowing you to fulfil your soul potential.

What Can You Expect From Your Awakening?

Spiritual awakening impacts both your internal and external worlds in a deep, profound way.

Its goal is to help you realize your full potential and live the life you planned before you incarnated.

However, even with the accelerated awakenings we’re seeing today, it remains a long path that requires patience and dedication.

Here’s what you can expect:

#1 Internal Transformation

You will experience significant changes within yourself as you integrate with your higher self, open your energy centers, and elevate your consciousness.

Ultimately, you will attain inner peace, clarity, and focus.

#2 Connection to the Universe and Your Team

During your awakening, it will become clear that we are all one.

You will feel a deep connection to the universe and open up contact with your guides.

They will be able to help you more directly than they could before your awakening.

#3 ‘Paranormal’ Experiences

As you become more connected to the universe and your higher self, the wonders of our multi-dimensional universe will start to be revealed.

This can manifest as any number of ‘paranormal’ experiences, including developing one of the ‘clairs‘.

(Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Claircognizance, Clairsentience, Clairgustance, Clairsalience.)

We may also find we can communicate telepathically and foretell future events.

#4 External Changes

As your frequency increases, your external reality will change to reflect your new inner reality.

This means moving away from old patterns of behavior and social groups, and starting to build a new life.

The transition can be difficult, but the rewards are magnificent.

#5 Challenges and Growth

Some parts of the journey will be difficult, but these challenges are essential for your growth.

Each obstacle helps you shed old patterns and beliefs that no longer serve you.

#6 A New Perception of Self

There will come a time in your spiritual journey when you realize you are not just this body.

You will discover who you are as an immortal soul and learn surprising things about yourself.

For example, that you are a very old, very powerful being, or that you have lived famous past lives.

#7 Fulfilling Your Purpose

Ultimately, spiritual awakening enables you to actualize your purpose in this lifetime.

During awakening, you will uncover your mission and develop powerful manifestation abilities.

Combined with the clarity and focus that comes with the journey, you will be unstoppable in your goals.

By understanding these foundational aspects of spiritual awakening, you can better prepare for and navigate your spiritual journey.

In the next section, I’ll give you clear practical advice on how to start your spiritual journey.

How to Start Your Spiritual Awakening Journey

#1 Build a Stable Emotional Platform

One of the conditions for conscious spiritual awakening (your spiritual epiphany) is completing at least 50% of your inner work.

The mind is too fragile to go through conscious awakening otherwise.

Untangling your human traumas and issues is a vital first step in starting your journey.

What to Do

  • Seek help from a therapist or an awakening coach.
  • Engage in inner child work.
  • Use trauma processing techniques like NFT, EMDR, and somatic movement.
  • Consider psychedelic therapies if they appeal to you and are legal where you live.

#2 Establish a Gratitude Practice

Saying thank you to the universe every day for what you have trains your lower mind in positivity.

This practice helps deconstruct the ego and elevate consciousness.

What to Do

  • Make a list of everything you are grateful for.

  • Read this list every morning.

  • Use a guided gratitude meditation a few times a week, like the one below.

#3 Get a Healthy Body

Spiritual awakening affects every level of your system: mind, energetic system, and physical body.

Nourishing your body with wholesome, home-cooked, organic, vegetable-based meals builds a solid foundation.

Avoid red meat, refined carbs, sugar, alcohol, excessive caffeine, and most drugs.

Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, ideally in nature, when thinking about how to start your spiritual awakening journey.

(Read this blog post to learn about foods to eat during spiritual awakening.)

What To Do

  • Overhaul your diet.
  • Consider incorporating fasting protocols, especially if you feel you need to lose weight.
  • Schedule time for outdoor exercise every day.

#4 Cleanse the Energetic System

Unblocking and rebalancing your chakras is key to awakening and supports mind-based inner work.

Start with the lower three chakras before moving on to the higher energy centers.

(Read this blog post for affirmations to unblock root chakra.)

What To Do

  • See an energy healer if you feel very blocked.

  • Listen to sound baths, like the one in the video below.

  • Use guided meditations for chakra healing.

#5 Establish a Meditation Practice

Meditation is essential for awakening; without it, you’ll get blocked.

Start small and build up.

Guided meditations are fine initially, but ultimately aim to meditate on your own.

What To Do

  • Meditate every morning for at least 5 minutes.
  • If you have a lot of lower mind chatter, use a mantra to focus your conscious mind.
  • Use longer guided meditations a few times a week.

(Watch the video below for a simple Third Eye Meditation practice you can do for 5 minutes anytime, anywhere.)

#6 Explore Other Spiritual Practices

Explore whatever spiritual practices you feel drawn to.

Yoga and breathwork are especially beneficial, but feel free to follow your intuition.

What To Do

  • Research online or talk to other awakeners until something grabs your attention.
  • Find a teacher or sign up to a course.
  • Deepen your practice at home.

#7 Research Metaphysics and the Spiritual Journey

Learning about the universe and the human system in relation to awakening builds an important platform of knowledge.

Your guides will use this to communicate ideas to you once they’ve established contact.

Read and watch whatever you feel drawn to; often, this is linked to your future mission.

Maintain an independent mind and question everything—your intuition will guide you if you let it.

What To Do

  • Follow YouTube channels and social media accounts that teach you something valuable. 

  • Find authors you resonate with. 

  • If a particular area of study appeals to you, find a teacher or take a course.

#8 Find Ways to Communicate with Your Guides

Early in awakening, before we’re fully integrated, it can be difficult for our guides to communicate with us.

You can help them by learning a divination tool, such as tarot or the pendulum.

It’s best to learn to use these tools yourself, rather than depending on someone else.

What To Do

  • Research different methods of divination and pick one that appeals to you.
  • Find a course or a teacher to teach you how to use it.
  • Put time aside to try to communicate with your guides; eventually, patterns will emerge.

Overcoming Challenges in the Spiritual Awakening Journey

Awakening is a long and sometimes difficult journey.

There will be times when you want to give up or wonder if it’s all worth it.

I promise you it is.

Here are a few things you can do to help yourself through the tough times:

  1. Double down on your gratitude practice.
  2. Meditate more.
  3. Make a conscious decision to embrace the process, no matter how hard it feels right now.
  4. Keep focused on the goal of inner peace and the actualization of your mission.
  5. Link up with other awakeners.
  6. Find a spiritual coach.


Starting your spiritual awakening journey requires dedication, patience, and trust in the process.

By doing these eight things:

  • Building a stable emotional platform
  • Practicing gratitude
  • Maintaining a healthy body
  • Cleansing your energetic system
  • Meditating
  • Exploring wider spiritual practices
  • Researching metaphysics, and
  • Finding ways to communicate with your guides

you can navigate your spiritual awakening journey with greater ease and confidence.

Remember, challenges are part of the process.

With every one you overcome, you are moving closer to realizing your full potential and fulfilling your purpose.

Embrace the journey and trust that you are exactly where you need to be.
