What are the signs of a spiritual awakening?

If you read my post about Spiritual Awakening recently it may have left you wondering if you (or someone you know) is going through the Awakening process – here’s 10 key keep signs that it’s a Spiritual Awakening that someone’s experiencing.

  • Walking their Talk – you may or may not agree with all the views of an individual experiencing Spiritual Awakening, but you have to respect them for staying in complete congruence with their views. The Spiritually Awakened are not afraid to share their ideas and views, and most importantly they will do what they say, not adopt a ‘do what I say, not what I do’ philosophy.
  • Sharing as Caring – The Spiritually Awakened are not likely to hoard.  Whether that be belongings, finances, or emotional prosperity.  Many enlightened people will keep their giving quiet, but you will notice the signs as you get to know them, which may include anything from tipping well in a restaurant, decluttering to charity shops, to referring clients to people they feel are a better fit for others.
  • Increased Nature Connection – being spiritually awakened does not mean turning your back on technology!  And many Awakened individuals have really learned to leverage tech for the greater good BUT they also recognise the value of turning the tech off and taking time to reconnect with all aspects of nature.


  • Turn Their Back on Competition – the concept of competition is based in an individual’s own experience of scarcity and lack. Awakened individuals recognise this for what it is and have adapted to move in a sphere of abundance and richness.  Similar to point 2, the Spiritually Awakened support the idea there is enough for all and turn their back on competition and those that try to pull them in to it.
  • Not Afraid to Love on Others Hard – The Spiritually Awakened not only recognise the power of love, but are not afraid to love on others hard. Both those that support them and those that don’t, those they agree with, and those they don’t. 
  • Work With and Trust Their Intuition – People who are Spiritually Awakened learn to Activate their Intuition and to take action on that.  They do not shy away from checking in with themselves and their decision making process.
  • Are Able to be Introspective – Self reflection is an active process for those that are Spiritually Awakened.  You may hear them speak of ways they are proactive about learning from themselves, such as journaling, or just notice them adjusting the sails slightly as they navigate situations and experiences.
  • Physical Self Care – Awakened people see themselves as stewards of their physical bodies.  You’ll notice them making more conscious decisions about often really simple things like how much sleep they get, what & when they eat, and regular opportunities to move their bodies.
  • Avoid Excess – whether it’s consumption, or use of time, Spiritually Awakened people take everything in moderation.  Building on point 2, they hold awareness of where their time and energy goes, as well as their intake of different foods, drinks, and addictive substances. 
  • Don’t Hide Mistakes – All of the above are a work in process, even for those that have been on their awakening journey for some time.  Spiritually Awakened people are constantly learning and growing, and not afraid to speak up when they feel they’ve not made great decisions in the past, or have got it wrong in some way – those that are Spiritually Awakened are still only human too! 

In wrapping up our exploration of the traits of Spiritually Awakened individuals, it’s clear that their journey is not just a fleeting trend but a profound transformation of the self. This transformation is marked by a series of conscious choices and actions that reflect a deeper understanding of life and our purpose in it.

One of the most striking aspects of Spiritually Awakened people is our commitment to continuous growth and learning. We understand that life is a journey, not a destination. This mindset allows us to embrace our mistakes as opportunities for learning and growth, rather than as failures.  We acknowledge our missteps with grace and view them as essential stepping stones on their path to enlightenment.

However, we are not just about self-improvement; we are also deeply committed to contributing positively to the world around us. We understand that their actions have a ripple effect, influencing not  only our lives but also those of others. This awareness drives us to make choices that are not only good for ourselves, but also beneficial for the community and the environment.

In essence, the journey of spiritual awakening is about finding balance – balance between the self and the universe, between giving and receiving, between action and reflection. It’s about recognising that we are all interconnected and that our actions, no matter how small, can have a profound impact on the world.

So, what can we take away from this? Whether you’re well on your way to spiritual awakening or just starting to dip your toes into this transformative journey, remember that it’s a personal and unique experience. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach here. It’s about listening to your inner voice, being true to yourself, and making choices that resonate with your deepest values and beliefs.
