”My Spiritual Re-Awakening”


“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.” ~Iyanla Vanzant

I didn’t know how to have a healthy relationship with myself, let alone another person. The pain of trying to have close relationships without having the skills to successfully navigate them had caught up to me with a vengeance—vengeance that had brought me to my knees.

And so began my spiritual re-awakening and the re-emergence of these hidden truths:

1. Be open to the magnificent.

While lying on the floor, curled up in a ball, soaked in tears, I began to pray. I pleaded for help. I pleaded for my heavy spirits to be lifted. I pleaded for the sun to shine on my heart and to teach me how to feel the way I wanted to feel, live the way I wanted to live and be loved the way I wanted to be loved.

And then it happened. In a piercing moment of clarity, wisdom, once forgotten, returned with the fierce determination of exalting me from my pain. Wisdom we all possess; wisdom present before our first cries as newborns— the wisdom of the universe.

Hidden truth: You already have everything that you need to create the life you desire; you just need to tap into it.

2. Learn what you are here to learn.

The universe is always unfolding exactly as it should. Sometimes it doles out experiences in the form of peace and serenity, and other times, its gifts come in the form of challenge and strife.

Your experiences are specifically suited for your personal evolution. Whether you are having the experience of anger, resentment, joy, happiness, or love, your experiences are uniquely designed to help you become who you were meant to be.

Hidden truth: The universe is always unfolding exactly as it should. The experience you are having at the moment is the one that you need, simply because you are having it.

3. Be present for yourself and others.

Give your full attention to everything that is happening to and around you in each moment. If you are taking a shower, experience the shower. Avoid bringing thoughts about making your coffee, what you are going to wear for the day, and driving to work in with you.

Feel everything about the shower—the temperature of the water, the size of the drops, the smell of the soap, and how wonderful it is that you are able to have the experience of taking a shower.

The past is over. The future hasn’t happened yet. The only time that exists is now; experience it.

Hidden truth: When you are physically in one place but mentally in another, you are missing your life. And not just missing it, but missing it at warp speed.

4. Bring passion to all that you do.

The quest to find one’s passion seems to have become an epidemic. However, something that was never lost cannot be found.

Passion is not something that exists outside you. It is what springs forth from you. It is the enthusiasm of being alive that you bring to what you are doing and who you are with. If you don’t have passion, you must reignite it.

Hidden truth: You have to have passion in order to feel passionate.

5. Give love abundantly.

Spirituality cannot exist without love. Spirituality is love. It is love for the planet, love for ourselves, and love for our fellow sisters and brothers. It has been said there are only two feelings that exist: love and fear. And all other feelings, such as loneliness, jealousy, worry, joy, and compassion are either one or the other.

You cannot be afraid and feel love, nor can you feel love and be afraid. When you give love abundantly, it will be abundantly returned to you.

Hidden truth: If you cultivate compassion and gratitude, you will never be alone and always in love.

6. Revere life.

Reverence is a feeling of profound love, awe, and respect for another. Someone who is reverent cannot bring suffering to even those who have hurt them.

One of the most reverent individuals on this planet was Mother Theresa. She once said, “People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. “ 

To live that way is nothing short of amazing. How you respond to another person is always your choice.

Hidden truth: Be kind, even to those who are unkind to you.

7. Embrace connection. 

We are all connected to each other. A child, a stay-at-home mother, a stay-at-home father, a CEO, and the president—we are all one. Other than our personalities and egos housed by our physical bodies, we come from the same divine source.

Hidden truth: The same pain, joy, love, and wisdom that runs through you, runs through everyone you come in contact with.

To fully understand each of these hidden truths, it is not enough to read them as words on a page; they must be experienced. For example, I could tell you in detail how honey tastes, but if you haven’t experienced honey, it would be impossible for you to fully grasp my description, no matter how hard you tried.

You are more than your body, your mind, your personality, and your ego. You are a great soul with infinite wisdom, creativity, love, and prosperity, which has access to these hidden truths whenever you need them.

And the next time life presents you with a challenge, be grateful that you are able to experience it.

Be grateful that you are equipped to handle it.

Be grateful that it will move you one step closer to becoming who you were meant to be.

Be grateful for what it will reveal to you.



  1. Beautiful post. I found living in the moment to be the most life-changing things of my entire life. I believe through it, you can heal almost any emotional problem you’re facing. Most problems we have are from the past, or our projection and fear of what’s to come. If you embrace where you’re at, “right now” you’ll find inner peace along the way. Whenever I get scared of the future or regret the past (which is like hardly ever now), I simply tell myself, “That doesn’t serve me. Thanks, brain, for the info, but I don’t need it.” Then, I pull my mind into the moment. One thing about the moment is–it’s ALIVE. Like you said, your entire life can flash before your eyes if you’re not in the moment. It definitely takes time to learn to do this, but it’s so worth it.

  3. Hello everyone, my name is Safa El Sadat, i’m here to share this little story, after being in a relationship with my husband for years, he left me for another woman, I did everything to get him back, but all was in vain and after a little period of time, I had to discuss my problem with a friend of mine and suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster who could help me cast a spell to bring her back, but I am the type who never believed in the spell casting. I had no choice but to try it, I contacted the spell caster and told me that everything will be alright.
    I did everything he asked me to do and carried out all the sacrifice and after a period of time everything was fine, i had to share this here for anyone who have any kind of spiritual problem you can contact him through his

  4. #7 is SO true! And oftentimes we forget how connected we are — that each of us is journeying through this human experience TOGETHER while still charting our own course. It does us good to help others who may get lost, or need a flashlight along the way. Love this! Xx
