During our lives, we’re on a journey to a spiritual awakening that can change our lives in their cores. There are times, however, when this journey will come to a halt due to one reason or the other. Regardless of your level of conscious awareness, the journey will stop at certain points. You will need to adapt to this inevitable thing and learn the reasons why it has come to that.
Sometimes, it’s too much negativity in your life that will stop the process. Other times, it can be people trying to disrupt your plans. No matter how hard you try, it’s something that can’t be avoided. You’ll just need to learn to live with it and try to find a way to jump over the obstacle. These spiritual roadblocks may be hard to endure, but you’ll at least get a chance to slow down and take a break.
This will allow you to reflect on what has gone wrong and give you a better idea of what to expect ahead. Look at it as a blessing in disguise – in the end, it will help you move forward.
Here are the biggest reasons why your spiritual awakening is on hold:
Too Much Negativity
No matter how hard we try, there’s just no way to banish negativity out of our life. We live in a hectic world with challenges around every corner. It’s tough not to give in sometimes and get angry and frustrated, and that’s OK.
We all need to vent our frustrations and that’s a good thing. It will help you deal with repressed memories and emotional baggage that may have been holding you back the whole time. Once you’re done, you’ll learn that you should focus on the positives, not the negative stuff in life and your journey will continue.
Over-inflated Sense of Self
Do you wake up with the feeling that you’re on top of the world? Do you think you’ve already climbed the mountain and achieved spiritual awakening? Don’t over-inflate your ego that much – it might actually be a sign that your journey has stopped.
Don’t get us wrong – spiritual enlightenment is great. But, if you believe that you’ve finally reached it, you probably haven’t. Trust us – when you’re finally there, you’ll know it.
You Fall Back into Old Patterns
Spiritual awakening is all about leaving the past behind. You’re going to create new habits, patterns, and memories, not fall back into old ones. If you find yourself that you’re regressing into old habits, your spiritual enlightenment is at a stop. Find a way to leave the past behind and the journey will continue.
You Need Healing
Unless you’re healed of past trauma, your journey won’t move forward. It’s simple – until you’ve been healed, your spiritual journey will be on hold. Once you solve the problem, it will continue moving forward at the speed of light. Don’t let past traumas hold you back. Conquer them all and see yourself top the mountain of spiritual enlightenment.
