Spiritual Awakening Mistake #1: Toxic Positivity
Toxic positivity did more harm than good. I didn’t give myself the space to heal. I always perceived suffering in a positive light, which suppressed my emotions.
I can only integrate the light in a meaningful way when I accept my suffering. Or else, I am using toxic positivity to deny life’s suffering.
Spiritual Awakening Mistake #2: Not Being My Hero
When synchronicities first happened, I was enchanted! Life felt so magical, like a Disney Movie. It felt like life was my prince charming, and I was the damsel in distress.
The reality was that I felt powerless. I hoped that life could save me from my problems. In truth, life would only mirror back to me what I needed to heal! It would not do the healing work for me. I had to step into my truth, do the inner work, and go to therapy.
Spiritual Awakening Mistake #3: Spiritual Ego
I developed an identity around spirituality because it was the first thing that made me feel at home. Consequently, I created a separation complex from those around me. I didn’t know how to open to perspectives that were different than mine.
I learned to let go of labeling myself as a misunderstood spiritual individual. I can connect with people from all walks of life!
Spiritual Awakening Mistake #4: Forgetting to Have Fun
I took life very seriously! I was always looking for spiritual growth, a bigger purpose, or a way to heal. My mind became obsessed with self-reflection and understanding the deeper meaning of the events occurring around me.
It’s a bit like a cat chasing his tail and never finding it! Haha. I missed the entire point of life, which is to enjoy the present moment!
Spiritual Awakening Mistake #5: Not Trusting My Intuition
I asked a lot of people for advice on what I should do. I didn’t trust my intuition and continuously gave my power away to outside sources.
The truth is that my intuition guides me the best. Additionally, it’s empowering to make mistakes on my own.
