People who have awakened their souls from the shackles of society have also been referred to as “spiritually awake”. This group of people represent an ever-growing segment of our society; they’re the game-changers, the rebels, the dreamers, the doers, and the people that see past the veil that’s been put over our eyes for far too long. They know that the truth isn’t always popular, and stand behind it even if they have to stand alone. If you’re “awake”, you keep an open mind, question the “truth,” and might feel ostracized by society because you don’t adhere to societal norms
If people call you a misfit, rebel, hippie, alternative, or just plain weird, you might be able to relate to the following traits of having an awakened soul.
Here are the signs that you would possess if you are an awakened soul.
YOU ABHOR ROUTINE & TEND TO DO THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT MOST PEOPLE DO.
You may have chosen to make your creative hobby your career, instead of having a typical 9-5. You know that we weren’t here just to pay bills and die. You don’t enjoy accumulating things, and only have what you truly need. You think spending a day in nature is way more fun than going to a movie or going shopping. You meditate and do yoga instead of playing video games or watching mindless television shows.
You talk about ideas, not people. You heal your body naturally with holistic methods, and stay away from vaccines and medications. You stand strong in your truth even if you only represent a handful of people who know what you do.
YOU KNOW THIS EARTH NEEDS RADICAL CHANGES, AND WANT TO HELP BRING ABOUT THAT CHANGE.
If you’re an awakened soul, you probably can’t understand why this world operates how it does. You know that we can’t keep polluting our environment, spreading hate, engaging in senseless wars and violence, and living so disconnectedly if we want to thrive and help others do the same.
You know that instead of control, we need cooperation and collaboration. You put the world’s needs before your own, and constantly talk about and make plans for inspiring change.
YOU QUESTION AUTHORITY
All your life, you probably revered the opinion of your parents and teachers, thinking that they knew everything about the world simply because of their age and experience. However, know that you’ve grown up, you know that everyone is pretty much on the same playing field.
A five year old child can know more about certain subjects than a seventy-five year old man. You take nothing as truth until you’ve looked into it and decided on it for yourself. You know that many authority figures spread lies and uphold unjust laws as a method of control, so for this reason, you do your homework when someone makes claims.
YOU KEEP AN OPEN MIND
You remain unattached to ideas, always looking for new information and eager to learn more. You have a fluid mind, and have learned to let old ideas go and welcome new knowledge as it becomes available. You know that true wisdom is knowing you know nothing, and you keep a humble attitude about your opinions and beliefs.
Even if you don’t agree with what someone says, you can still entertain their thoughts without accepting them. Also, you realize that everyone can teach you something, even if they don’t know all the same things as you do. You don’t let your ego get in the way of considering certain ideas or even questioning long-standing beliefs you may have.
YOU SOMETIMES FEEL VERY ALONE AND ISOLATED IN SOCIETY, BUT KNOW THAT MOST THOUGHT LEADERS DO.
Since you see the world so differently, you tend to feel lonely at times because everyone else can go about their days seeing no need for change, and feeling content with their life and the world. You, however, feel very strange going about your daily activities when you know what lies beyond the menial chores and responsibilities. Even if you take the road less traveled, you feel honored to know what you do and have the fortitude to stick to your guns no matter what. You may even attract others who think the same way you do, because you live your truth so courageously.
YOU ARE CREATIVE
We are all on different levels of production of our passions. Some have beautiful, intricate thoughts that stay in that form; as an ethereal idea. Others create with their hands, build houses, blow glass, garden or sew.
Some write, draw, play music and dance. These are all methods of creation that are crucial to you finding and following that spark of passion within you.
YOU SEE THE BIG PICTURE
The more we can fit the puzzle pieces together, the more of the picture we can see. To awaken is to expand your awareness and understand that EVERYTHING exists.
Every possibility, every parallel reality, impossible idea and contradicting thought exists because why not.
YOU REQUIRE MORE SOLITUDE THAN AN AVERAGE PERSON
You are a person who can enjoy your own company and can entertain yourself easily. You prefer to spend time with your own self that buzzing around with people.
Spread your knowledge, share what you’ve learned and what you have to bring to this world boldly and proudly but remember to celebrate your ideas, not yourself.
