Spiritual Awakening is the awakening of our inner soul. It unfolds the layers of our desires, motivation and thoughts. As said wisely by Owen Feltham – “Meditation is the soul’s perspective glass”. Meditation is a way of breaking up our thoughts in complete consciousness. Meditation is a way of getting rid of our illusions, knowing our deepest self and gaining spiritual awareness so that our mind is free from misconceptions.
Hugh Jackman said – “Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It’s like the ultimate rest. It’s better than the best sleep you’ve ever had. It’s the quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life healthy.”
Why do you think life needs spiritual awakening? The answer that every mind shall know is that the one who couldn’t understand his own self can never come out of his disputes with other minds. It gives positivity in life and helps in thinking high. It provides internal relaxation and helps think wisely for every person who is knowledgeable may not be the ray of wisdom.
Meditation gives us an opportunity to make ourselves aware of our different states of mind that play an important role in shaping our motivation of life. Spiritual Meditation is a way of connecting to God and communicating with him. It defines ultimate realization. This gives immense tranquility to our soul.
The Basics of Meditation are:
- Sit with your back straight to allow easy breath and energy flow.
- Close your eyes.
- Adjust your body movements (Try small movements to ensure some body comfort) and sit relaxed.
- Repeat step 3 for 15 minutes if you’re new. Thirty minutes is better.
Chanting can be very helpful in keeping our mind out of any kind of disturbances. It provides psychological and physiological benefits. It should be done regularly and it can be done anywhere and anytime, so why delay in our spiritual awakening process.

In today’s world, where most of the people are running after materialistic life should take a little pause and try to realize whether materialistic achievements are giving them inner peace or they are struggling with depression and incompleteness of soul. When people come to realize that everyone around us is one and we have same positive feelings for them, it naturally attracts positivity in their approach too. This helps people understand that God is a soulful single energy that has immense power of healing and self-realization.
When our mind and body are in equilibrium, we naturally gain stability in our life and realize our true motivation. Nowadays, everyone remains stressed for some reason or the other. In such situations, meditation shows us paths towards the solutions of our problems. Meditation calms our mind so we are able to make our life stable that doesn’t happens when we are angry, full of anxiety, worries, etc.
Benjamin Disraeli said – “I have brought myself to long meditation, to the conviction that a human with a settled purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a will which will stake even existence upon its fulfillment”.
Spiritual Awakening through meditation help us achieve high level of understanding of our inner pursuits with the divine help of the Almighty, God who helps us get driven to a path that takes us to a new level of tranquility.
