Spiritual Awakening Growth Spurt!
“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

There you are, sitting among some of your well-loved and closet friends. You are laughing, probably sipping on your favorite drink. The conversation is flowing all around you, when you suddenly notice something that makes your stomach drop.
You are alone.
How could his be? You have known these people for many years. You love them. But as you look around the table, you realize that you don’t relate to them as you once used to. The conversations are all the same, as they always have been but you are suddenly not interested or involved. You are alone and you are out-growing these friends. This is the side- effect of waking up to life and realizing that there is so much more to be experienced.
It could have been anything that triggered your awakening; a death, a health crisis or a change in a relationship. Something has changed the perspective of life and you are seeing things in a whole new light. You want to talk about real life issues, things that have been revealed to you in these persistent moments of clarity. You want to make some changes in your life and maybe support others. Life has taken on a new glow, a new awareness. You realize that your friends have not made that leap to this realization.
When you spiritually awaken, you are going to shift energetically. Those with whom you associated with are not going to be on the same vibration or mindset as you are. But how do you deal with this change because it’s not they who are changing, it’s you!
The last thing you want to do is delay your awakening or slow it down for your friends to “catch up”. Your awakening is your own personal journey. It’s important to understand that they will go through theirs in their own time. Incidentally, part of your awakening could possibly be linked to theirs. You will develop a certain type of compassion for them, because you know that they may not see things for the way they really are now, but hope in the future that possibility they will. You will never really lose them; they will always be there, because you will keep them close to your heart. They may not understand the new language you are speaking, but they will feel the love.
Rest assured that as you shift from the old you to the upgraded version, other people who resonate with you will start to show up in your life. It may take a while, and you may be in solitude in-between friendships. Just use that time to become acquainted with the new you.
Growth is a part of life. It’s nothing to be feared or overly-concerned about. Embrace it and share it with those you love and gently place your new awareness on your friends. Inspire them with your new insights. You may help them to slowly open their eyes to the real life!
Live the life!
