As you continue moving along your journey to spiritual enlightenment, you will have to step outside of your comfort zone. This isn’t going to be easy. Instead, you will find yourself feeling uncertain of the path you have chosen, but that’s completely normal.
#5 – Your struggles can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression.
While this doesn’t always happen, those who find this uncertainty to be too overwhelming may eventually find themselves struggling with something deeper. Often those who are working towards spiritual awakening will have moments of extreme anxiety and may even slip into depressive episodes.

#8 – You will start to question the meaning of everything.
Spiritual awakening is that moment in which your eyes are truly opened to the bigger picture of the universe, allowing you to see how you fit in as one tiny piece of a much bigger puzzle.

However, as you begin to understand the bigger picture you will slowly let go of this need to control everything. This will allow you to practice mindfulness, living in the here and now.
