No matter your level of conscious awareness or the level of spiritual awakening that you have attained, there will come a time on your spiritual journey where you know that you have made great progress and then suddenly… nothing.
Positivity has flown out the window, prophetic visions and lucid dreaming have been replaced with normal lower conscious ideals and mindfulness has been replaced with overactive thinking patterns. You simply can’t make the connection that you once felt and it seems impossible to return to the level of light, love and higher awareness that you seek.
Everything you attempt to get moving again seems to fail, as if an invisible road block has been put right in front of you, leaving you wondering, just what is going on? It’s a path that can’t be avoided, but why does it happen?
Spiritual road blocks are designed for you to slow down and take a break. Your initial spiritual awakening, may have been so full-blown, that now your mind needs the time to rearrange itself. A reformation of belief systems, perceptions of the world and perceptions of yourself are in order here.
These time periods can be extremely frustrating and sometimes even painful if the cycle is leading you into another Dark Night of the Soul. Navigating this rocky terrain requires, patience and gentleness with yourself, in order to sail the rough waters, safely ashore.
Determining the root cause of spiritual, developmental, stalemates, are crucial to getting you back on the road again.
1. You need healing.
A spiritual awakening can bring repressed memories and emotions from your unconscious into your conscious awareness. Such as past lives, things you may have forgotten about or things you weren’t even aware had occurred, may come bubbling to the surface.
You may even begin to disassociate with these memories, eluding yourself into believing that they are figments of your imagination.
2. You’re angry.
Any psychologist will tell you that anger stems from a wide variety of underlying causes. When it comes to anger stemming from a spiritual awakening however, we usually can narrow down the field a little bit.
You still have hidden repressed memories, not yet brought to surface as well as the failure to forgive for those memories brought to your conscious awareness.
3. You have developed an over-inflated sense of self.
When you awaken you feel on top of the world, you feel like you have ‘finally arrived’ and looking back at others who have not yet reached your level of awareness, you can’t help but eventually feel “special”.
Don’t get me wrong, spiritual enlightenment and the evolution of consciousness is something to be celebrated!
However, spiritual enlightenment is the ultimate goal for all humanity, not just a chosen few.
The more you associate yourself with this I.D of being different or special, that is according to Freud, “motivated by self-gratification and pleasure” the more you battle with your ‘super ego’ effectively making it impossible to sustain a present awareness of acceptance and love, Thus hindering the continuance of your spiritual growth.
Quite simply the more you believe that you have “arrived” the more you have nowhere to go. No matter how much you want to continue on your quest in attaining consistent spiritual fulfillment your cup is full and needs to be emptied.
