Achieving Spiritual Enlightenment

The concept spiritual enlightenment is one of the hardest to pin down.  It’s proven difficult to get a single clear definition of the concept for ages. In some cases, it is referred to as spiritual awakening, and it’s often misunderstood and confused with religion. For those who practice and go deeper into it, they understand that it goes beyond religion and the thoughts of a common man. It is a practice that conveys a certain level of wisdom and knowledge that is unparalleled. For practitioners, spiritual enlightenment provides them with a complete understanding of the universe and life in general. It provides them with a new perspective on everything and mostly creates a better and more podsitive life.

How to Be Enlightened Spiritually

The most misunderstood thing about spiritual enlightenment is that “you need to be religious” to practice. That’s simply not true. Enlightenment is all about discovering yourself and your purpose and all you need to do is do your research, meditate, commit yourself, attend workshops, and learn how to do it. It’s important to note that you don’t NEED to attend a physical enlightenment workshop, but you can have experts for training. 

Apart from spiritual nourishment, enlightenment is also associated with numerous health benefits, particularly for mental health. Most practitioners testify to achieving inner peace that has helped them overcome various mental illnesses and pains. It is great for stress and depression amongst many other psychological conditions. An important thing to note is that enlightenment comes in different disciplines. Each discipline is different and works best for a certain outcome. Here are some of the best ways to achieve spiritual enlightenment:

  • Meditation

Meditation is an effective type of spiritual enlightenment. What makes it popular is that you can select from its different types. Another important thing about meditation that makes it popular is that you can do it by yourself without the need of an expert; really, all you need is the internet. To achieve enlightenment with meditation, you can select and practise different types like qigong, kundalini, transcendental or mindfulness.

  • YogaChanting

Chanting is simply rhythmic speaking or singing words with the purpose of aligning the internal spiritual energy. It is a very effective method, and you can do it alone or as a group. It comprises a range of simple melodies and high complex music structures. Chanting mostly involves a great deal of repetition and sub phrases, and this is how it helps to cease conscious thought while still aware of your surroundings easily. This practice is common in Hawaiian, Native American and African cultures.

  • Yoga

Yoga is an incredibly popular practice that can help you achieve spiritual enlightenment as well. The practice was birthed from Hindu tradition before spreading through the entire East. Yoga is designed to provide the body with positions that cause energy to flow naturally so as to improve the health of the doer.  It also trains the mind to focus on the body while the body is trained to work efficiently, all for better health.  Over the years, yoga has developed into different types, and your trainer should recommend the best type based on your needs.

  • Dancing and Shaking

With dancing and shaking, you can cease conscious thought and achieve an enlightenment experience. In fact, it has been proven that dancing excess and other related activities such as quaking and shaking can easily initiate the cessation of conscious thought that triggers the enlightenment experience. It’s very effective when done properly, but you need to learn this technique mostly through attending workshops. 

  • Fasting

Fasting is a technique that has been used for years from the times before Christ. At one time, it is said that Jesus had to fast for forty days.  It is a great technique for those seeking spirituality, and it has been found to work very well. When you do not eat you leave more room from your brain to grow and expand. Religious folk will say that denying yourself food enables you to become closer to true God. This is why food fasting is important in spirituality.

  • Sensory Deprivation

This is one of the latest and most popular innovations in spiritual enlightenment. While these tanks have been around a long time, it's only recently become wildly popular in the enlightenment field. It is a technologically-designed tank that provides the user a perfect environment where one can easily cease conscious thought and experience an incredible enlightenment session. They are entirely dark and quiet tanks that are designed with salt water to help you float effortlessly. The experience of feeling weightless helps a lot in achieving spiritual enlightenment.
