Have you ever wondered about spirituality or consciousness? How does one start or continue awakening to consciousness? This article has listed a few of the actual ways one can start and progress in their spiritual path or consciousness. By being your authentic self in all you do, say, think, and act will be a living testament of awakening to your consciousness for yourself and for others.
Living by Example
When a person starts the awakening process, there are so many directions you may go in order to find information on how to start. Well, actually to start, all you really need to do is start living by your own values and for you to become a positive example of what to be like. When you live in and by your truth, and by helping other; you make such a big difference in not just the one you help but within their family and their friends. It is truly amazing when you feel that, to even help one, you can make a difference to many.
It is said that when we communicate our views to others, seeds are planted for growth in them. When communicating your views they should be in a casual and light manner so not to make the other uncomfortable or angry. My mother used to say to me as a child, “when a person asks a question, you give them the answer they are seeking and just a little more information on the subject for them to ponder about”. Be receptive to them, when they return for more information on the extra you gave them and do all you’re communicating with love for the other person their thoughts and feelings.
Giving the Gift of Consciousness
Sometimes all it takes is a gift received from another to spark the feelings towards someone else’s awakening. Have you ever received a gift that you had no idea existed, or much less how to use it? Well this goes for gifts in consciousness; like a book on awakening, a medicine bag, a beautiful gemstone or even a meditation for an ailment you know they suffer from. These are just a few of the tools that could help them to start their exploration of their soul. When you are searching for that perfect gift for a birthday or holiday, consider a spark into that persons awakening process. Give the gift of consciousness.
We are familiar with teachers for education. Spirituality can be taught the same way by starting the awakening process which can be very confusing. It can help to research your area for a mentor or teacher that can help you start, by asking you question, giving you locations for resources, and just that helping hand or partnership that is irreplaceable. One thing I have found to be helpful, is that when someone comes to you with their stress load so full, point them directly to a special meditation that can help them reach some amount of calmness. By doing so, giving them that 10 minutes of your time, can be the trigger to helping them throughout the rest of their life. Reaching out to others by speaking to them personally, in discussion groups, by text, or by computer might just help them when they are eager to learn in order to find those nuggets of information to start the process and when they are actually ready to do so.
Value Those Around You
It is important to recognize and acknowledge the value of others that you encounter throughout your day. This also teaches them how to value others in their daily activities. The easiest way to teach others respect is to offer them respect first. The world today is quite a different place in that we all are running so fast. We have forgotten to respect the person driving next to us, or walking through the door at the same time someone else is. A moment, one moment, can actually show another respect. When showing respect you should also not expect anything in return. Without the thought of anything more coming back to you when showing respect will teach and show others how they should be to people they encounter throughout their day. Value them first as you value yourself always.
Invitation to Attend
When it is time to learn something new, we are all a little self-conscious going it alone. When you are signing up for that spiritual course, or ritual, or ceremony; think of someone whom might benefit from it. Share your experience with them by inviting them to attend with you. The experience may touch them in ways that are so profound. You just may introduce them to a new spiritual path, that they never knew existed.
How you Affect
Most of us are very unaware of how we affect others or how we affect the world by our actions. When connecting with others on the subject of consciousness, it is worth your time to point out just how interconnected all living beings are with the environment and the universe. It can be an eye-opener for them to actually see the power they hold just by their own actions. This is the beginning of learning how we are all connected to everything else that exists in the Universe.
Here are but a few of some resources that I have used over the years. May you enjoy the journey to your personal awakening to consciousness.

Above, I have outlined just a few of the ways you can start your consciousness awakening or how to share with others regarding their consciousness awakening beginnings. When introducing someone to conscious living be lighthearted and show love throughout the process. For someone to ask, the respect your knowledge and that they are ready and want to learn. We don’t want nor should we be boastful and make fun of their hungry to learn more of what we are to understand in this life. We are all here to learn, understand, and experience this life with gusto; not with judgment, anger, nor cruelty. Be giving of yourself without the thought for something in return. Give to just give. Can you imagine for just one moment, if we all lived this manner, what this world might be like? Everything around us would be through love, understanding, joy and enlightenment. I will be honest. I am up for that! How about you?
