Maybe you've had a glimpse of 'being' in this 'higher state' when you had an 'aha moment' as Oprah likes to call it - an epithany, a revelation, a candle glow in the dark moment of awareness, insight, enlightened clicking.
The idea of consciousness that I am talking about here is an invitation to hold that magical state of being, that sense of one foot on land and another on air, longer.
It starts with a single thought.
“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness.
The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore.
You become light-hearted and full of joy.
The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous." - Quote Source
Deepak Chopra calls this 'Synchro-Destiny'! When you begin to awaken and open up your consciousness
(ie signs of awakening), you start to notice things such as:
- all sorts of literal & supernatural signs, including seeing repeating numbers such as 444 & 11:11.
- a host of synchronicities more & more
- something feels different or in the air, but you can't always pin it
- being aware of illusions of this world
- the subtle nuances between ordinary vs non ordinary reality
- changes in your 'Self' - how you feel, your views about others and the world at large
- changes in relationships
- more intuitive moments, insights, dejavu
- a yearning & seeking for a deeper connection and meaning in life
