  • Hey, guys.

  • Josie here with you today.

  • Thank you so much for being here.

  • Welcome to my channel.

  • I want to share with you some guidance on spiritual awakening

  • in this video.

  • And I often get asked, you know, how

  • to know if you are on the path of spiritual awakening.

  • And let me tell you, my answer today

  • will be a completely different answer

  • that I would give you like five years ago, or 10 years ago.

  • I think because the more time I spend in contemplation

  • and reading and talking to my higher self

  • and just looking at the world differently,

  • through the eyes of the spirit, I

  • gain with this different perspective.

  • And that's what I wanted to share with you in this video.

  • I hope it helps.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • So, how can I describe you a spiritual awakening?

  • Imagine if you are reading a book,

  • right, and it's a really interesting book

  • and you're fully in it, right?

  • And you were wondering, OK, what's

  • going to happen to all of these characters,

  • and how is this going to end?

  • And you're fully, fully present with this game, like,

  • will these people get together or, you know,

  • with this person does not end up well,

  • and you can't help by being fully in that story.

  • And what happens if you just switch your awareness,

  • switch your attention?

  • And what you will notice, what you will see,

  • you'll have this clear understanding.

  • Man, it's just a book.

  • You know, hardcover, pages, chapters, words printed on it.

  • So this book looks no different than all these other books.

  • What makes it different is the story that's in it.

  • But if I look at the shelf of books,

  • they will be different by colors,

  • but essentially, they're just paper with pictures and words

  • written on them.

  • So what happens during that spiritual awakening

  • is that you wake up from your story.

  • You realize that I am just an observer of this experience.

  • That's extraordinary.

  • Wow.

  • So I'm not identifying with that story, or that character,

  • or that plot.

  • I am fully present right now, and I

  • can see this reality as it is.

  • So that's-- that happened to you.

  • And when that happens, how do you feel?

  • You feel excited, right?

  • You feel very present.

  • You feel alert spiritually, right?

  • You feel like your life is on purpose.

  • That you're not at the mercy of someone else's circumstances,

  • you are not at the mercy of some writer who

  • has put that story ahead of you, you

  • have no choice in the matter, you

  • know, your society, your culture, your parents,

  • your teachers, your partners, they all

  • tell you how to live your life.

  • It's almost like you just have to flip the next page

  • and follow your story.

  • But when you begin to be awakened spiritually,

  • you realize that, wait, if this is just a movie, right?

  • Like a book that I am reading, you know, this is just a story

  • that I'm living in.

  • I can write my own story, you know,

  • if I am the creator of my life, I can write my own story.

  • And it can start with a clean page.

  • You can start with a completely different book from page one

  • and start your life over again.

  • So when people seek out spiritual teachers

  • and, you know, spiritual teachers,

  • they are people who have experienced

  • that level of awareness.

  • Now, they can see the detached version of life.

  • So they're not identifying with the drama

  • or with their own stories, and so on.

  • They have this level of presence.

  • So when you're seeking these teachers,

  • they will always want to bring you into this present moment

  • awareness.

  • It's like, master, help me, I'm stuck on this page,

  • you know, I don't know what to do.

  • How can I flip this?

  • I want my life to be so different.

  • I want to be in a different story.

  • I don't like this story.

  • Please, how can I change it?

  • So in the spiritual awakenings when you have this realization,

  • if you just live in that story, and my friends,

  • for a good reason you will be coming here

  • into this world to experience something.

  • Right.

  • So you will want to have a little bit of drama here,

  • and a little bit of excitement here,

  • so you have all of these kinds of really

  • great human experiences.

  • And for spirits, life on earth is only like 100 years,

  • so it's not too long.

  • So they're not obsessed with wanting just all good, or all

  • great experiences.

  • They want to break through something so they

  • can build something, right?

  • So they can open up to this new greater, bigger, more expanded

  • version of themselves.

  • So when you have this level of spiritual awakening,

  • you realize that life is kind of just like a dream and you will

  • awaken, and you know that there are still--there are people

  • around you who are still sleeping and they're believing

  • their dreams.

  • So when you awaken spiritually, that's where suffering ends.

  • And there's this one story about Buddha that I love so much,

  • you know.

  • It's when Buddha was dying.

  • He was on his death bed, surrounded by his disciples.

  • And one of the disciples approached him and asked,

  • master, now before you go, I want to know, are you a god?

  • And Buddha said, no, I'm not.

  • Then he asks, you know, are you a master?

  • And Buddha said, no, I'm not.

  • Well, you-- are you a teacher, or are you a healer?

  • Well, who are you?

  • Help me to understand.

  • And Buddha looked at him and he said, I am awake.

  • I am awake.

  • All right, my friends.

  • And that's my desire for all of you watching this video,

  • to come to the point of awakening so you

  • can write your own story.

  • All right, my friends, here you go.

  • I hope this video has served you and, of course,

  • if you want to share your stories,

  • please do so in the comments below.

  • And I'm sending you all the love from my heart.

  • Be well.

  • I'll check with you in the next video.

  • Bye-bye.

  • [NO SPEECH]
