Awaken Your Sleeping Soul

There’s so much stress in the world that sometimes you feel like going into a spiritual hibernation. This fatigue can affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally. How can you awaken your soul with a renewed determination?

Although many use the words contentment and complacency interchangeably, they don’t mean the same thing. When you are content, you feel an unspeakable joy that transcends materialism. You work to better yourself, but you’re grateful for what you receive.

On the other hand, complacency doesn’t include gratitude. It’s a depth you can go to when you’re unsatisfied with life and lose the initiative to make it better. Complacency causes stagnation in your creativity, thought processes, and spirituality.

Here Are Ways to Awaken Your Sleeping Soul

If your spirit is in a quiet time of rest, it doesn’t have to be forever. You can swing open the shutters of your mind and let the light of joy dispel the darkness. Here are fifteen ways to awaken your sleeping soul.

1. Awaken Your Soul Through Creative Pursuits

One of the best ways to awaken your soul is to do something creative. It uses all three elements of your being: body, mind, and spirit. There’s no limit to your imagination and inspiration when these are in sync.

Anything that you make to give you and others pleasure is creative. Whether your niche is writing, art, music, or even preparing a splendid meal, it’s your soul at work. You needn’t become an expert artisan to create something beautiful to enjoy and share.

2. Practice Meditation

How long has it been since you’ve had a meaningful conversation with your soul? The overwhelming stress of daily living often blocks that gentle voice deep within your being. Meditation clears the internal chatter, opens your heart, and reminds you to “be still and know.”

All you need is a quiet space or room in your house to call your own. Relax in this sacred space and learn to be present with each breath. You’ll soon recognize the comforting whisper of your awakening soul.

3. Listen to Music

Awaken your soul each day with any tunes that resonate with you. It can be music you hear, sing, or play on an instrument. Step it up a bit and dance with your favorite beats and the beginning of your awakening process.

4. Helping Others Can Awaken Your Soul

It awakens your soul when you help, encourage, and speak life to others. Spiritual awakening is intensely personal, yet it’s a gift you can share. There’s no better way than to be generous with your time and resources.

Do you have a particular skill or talent that you can share with someone? Even if you could devote a few hours each week, it can make a difference for others. The beauty of volunteering is that you benefit just as much as those you serve.

5. Spend Time in Nature

An ancient inscription attributed to an ancient Greek philosopher named Hermes Trismegistus says, “as above, so is below.” It’s a stunningly simple reminder that the spiritual realms mirror the natural world and vice versa. So, observing nature is an ideal way to awaken your soul.

The trees raise their hands in celebration toward the heavens. Listen to the birds’ serenade as they take flight with the unseen angels. Every time you see a sunrise, you realize your eternal bond with this awe-inspiring world.

6. Practice Visualization and Dreams

You also communicate with your spirituality through night dreams and visualization, like daydreaming. These let you peak beyond earthly realms into the mysteries of the spirit. Dreaming and visualization can help awaken your soul to your potential.

Consider the countless inventions in the world that started with a simple dream. As you visualize what you desire, you send positive affirmations into the Universe. You attract the same positive results you’ve affirmed per the law of attraction.

7. Keep a Soul Journal

Have you ever kept a journal while you were traveling? You probably wanted to preserve your memories to reflect on in the future. Likewise, you may consider journaling your progress as your soul awakens to higher consciousness.

Feel free to record any thoughts, feelings, or ideas you have. Some people like to embellish their journals with inspirational quotes, pictures, or their artwork. Highlight each significant touchstone on your journey as you want.
