11:11 on the clock. That’s how my spiritual awakening came into full swing!
I’d always heard my American friends call it a lucky number, saying “make a wish!”. It was that very day, 27th April 2017, when I’d seen the number and wondered if the Universe’s Wishing Foundation was really a thing. Or if we were just talking Santa for adults?
Giving it no longer than a moment’s thought, I shrugged it off.
11:11 Once Again
A while later, I had time to spare. So, aimlessly browsing through a website about human psychology and relations, for no specific reason, I found a blog that talked about God’s plan.
And again for no exact reason, I scrolled down and came across a comment from someone talking about ‘Twin Flames‘. The anonymous person described it in a way that made me curious, but I got back to work and forgot about this too, just as quickly.
By night, the phrase Twin Flames was spinning in my head, I couldn’t get it out. So finally, I looked it up and the very first article I saw was from a website which had 1111 in its URL. I had goosebumps!
This would be my first encounter with ‘Divine Guidance’.
What I was reading was so unusual and weird at the time, I was skeptical. As my conflicted thoughts began to grow, I decided to end my browsing for the night. And there, on the clock, once again, was 11:11! Staring back at a dumbstruck me. It was a full circle.
Lying down with my eyes closed and heart palpating wildly with the possibility of this not being a coincidence, I remember feeling my forehead tickle and tingle.
And then seeing a beautiful pinkish-purple flower with countless petals just spinning majestically in my mind’s eye before I blacked-out into a deep sleep.
I also share more from that night, in the video below. I hope you enjoy my narrative!
This is the story of the day I was pulled into the unbelievable world of Signs, Synchronicities, Angel Numbers, Healing, Meditation, and more. You’re either a believer here or a skeptic. Within the span of a year, I’ve moved from the latter (extremist) to the former (extremist, once again).
Let’s start with the phrase Spiritual Awakening. What does it mean?
To me, this was waking up to a few realizations:
- One, out of nowhere, a higher intelligence had gathered keen interest in my life and was guiding me. I couldn’t see or hear anyone, but the power was inspiring my thoughts in some way, for sure! Whenever I listened to the guidance, I would see an undeniable ‘affirmation’. Or what we casually call a sign, an omen.
- Two, 11:11 is a real thing after all. If you’re seeing it too – welcome home! To day at the very least, the Universe is letting you know through these repeating numbers, called Angel Numbers, that your life’s going to transform magnificently very soon.
- Three, it’s not easy to talk about it. We are Spiritual Beings living a Human Experience, but the kind of amnesia we’ve been put under has made us extreme skeptics. Nevertheless, by sharing my own experiences, I hope to put forward a strong case over time on why this stuff is more real than you’d like to believe. Note: Here are 5 fascinating books I recommend that give spiritual stuff a scientific exploration.
- And four, you can’t undo this. It becomes a part of you. You will be happier, the sooner you learn to integrate your two contradictory worlds into one. By writing this blog, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do for myself too.
Why did I have a Spiritual Awakening? Can it happen to you, too?
Unknowingly, I had asked for it, when I prayed for the Universe to help make more sense out of my life. And yes, you can experience this too.
How it comes to you will be unique to you, but holding the desire for a Spiritual journey is in itself an invitation to begin this journey. Wait and watch – it shall unfold beautifully in due time!
Learning about twin flames and experiencing these synchronicities led me onto the spiritual path through balancing my masculine and feminine energy. Eventually, it led to much deeper healing and my exploration through other modalities.
But even if I didn’t know what to ask for, I was energetically asking for help in the way I knew how to. At that point, I had lost direction in my life and I was miserable within. I craved for answers.
Unsatisfied at work, unsatisfied with relations, no matter how hard I tried, no matter how much I engaged myself in fitness, learning new things or meeting new people, I felt like something was eating up my mind. I just wasn’t at peace. I tried gratitude writing and I tried walking in nature – all temporary fixes.
Something was very off, and I didn’t know what. What psychology might classify as depression, is spiritually called the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’. It was time for a change.
So I asked for it – I asked the Universe what the point of my life was. And surely, it humbled me with answers, directed to me overtime with utmost subtlety and conviction.
Note that depression isn’t to be taken lightly, or that spiritual practices are the only solution to dealing with it. When our body and mind are out of alignment, it can take twice the energy to walk this path. So, whatever modern intervention helps, take it.
But just know that there is something higher in it too. And if you can reach out to it, it will transform your life.
Did this ‘Spiritual Awakening’ make things any better?
While there were some drastic, odd, and strange changes that caught me off-guard and overwhelmed me at times, there was also a lot that became better in my life.
A major difference I saw was not just an improvement in mental health and a rising hope for a direction in life, but my physical health and overall reality began to change, too. Here’s how :
I shed a LOT of weight. I went down 2 whole points on the BMI scale.
My diet preferences changed. For the first few months, my body repelled oily or heavy foods. Most of my diet became fruit-and-salad-based. Over time this normalized, of course, but that shift gave a huge boost to my health.
Over the years I’ve experienced many dietary changes, from repelling eggs to rejecting caffeine. As they say, your body slowly begins to prepare you for deeper levels of healing.
I became conscious.
Most of my life, I had been living on autopilot from one day to the other. I wouldn’t say that I am fully conscious! I have this short, silly and sweet story for you to remind you how deeply on autopilot we are at times.
But now, after the spiritual awakening, I have a deeper sense of awareness. For instance, I am not just annoyed or just happy.
I am also growing aware of what that emotion looks like in my body, what responses it triggers, and how to extract wisdom from it. I’ve curated a digital workbook for anyone that’s learning to strengthen their emotional awareness.
This means everything around me has become more real than ever. Which means that what no longer serves me in thought or action, is rapidly going out of the window and way into my past.
My energy levels started fluctuating tremendously when I was around people.
For a couple of years to follow, there were days when I would feel like I was living worth 5 days at a time! And on others, I would be so tired I’d simply stay in and sleep.
Energy is a crazy thing and just like most of the spiritual workers out there, I’m still figuring out how to deal with it. It did finally make sense why I’m an emotional sponge, and how to stop soaking up other people’s energy.
My psychic senses began to clear up.
(Wait, what? Well, this escalated quickly!)
By psychic senses, let me help you understand at a very high-level the ones I’ve developed personally:
#1 – Clairsentience
A heightened awareness of other people’s sentiments, even if they’re not aware themselves. This is basically what we call being (really) good at empathy.
#2 – Clairvoyance
In other words, having visions about an event in the future that later manifests. This happens to me during meditations and some of my dreams, and no – I can’t tell you what your future is.
Clairvoyance for me means seeing bits and pieces of important events that are coming up for me in my journey, thus guiding me to prepare better for them.
#3 – Intuitiveness
When you begin trusting this Higher State’s guidance, you notice that you are more in tune with it.
You can trust your ‘gut-feeling’ a lot more now, and you don’t need to worry about why you feel something so strongly. You just obey. If you’re trying to develop that, I’d recommend reading this post.
#4 – Telepathy
Of course not at every moment, and not very extensively, because that would drive me (or anyone) crazy. But it is rapidly becoming easier to catch hold of a person’s thought just a second before they say it out loud.
The funny thing is, I am not necessarily close to that person. As long as I’m in a clear state of mind, these telepathic moments keep coming to me.

These were the initial changes, of course. Overtime, there has been a lot more that’s shifted in my life!
Essentially, my Spiritual Awakening has opened the gates of communication with the Universe. And that’s why I like to say “the Universe talks to me, and I’d be a fool not to listen”.
I’ve touched very briefly about a lot of things above, and there’s yet a lot more to come. It’s been four years and I’m still peeling layers, and finding newer insights in this journey.
