Spiritual awakening and enlightenment is a religious experience where the person who is enlightened had contact with the divine and supernatural. It has been part of different traditions and practices, encompassing different religions.
Enlightenment is subjective since it fits on the individuals perception and understanding divinity and religion. It is also something which other people who do not share the same views may find different and sometimes frightening. Even though, different religions have different understanding of the divine and supreme being, awakening experiences seem to have commonalities, as well as their differences.
Different religions and traditions share that spiritual awakening and other religious experiences includes the person to detach from the world and unite with God or gods and goddesses. The person would have deeper connection to the world after the awakening. They would also attain innate knowledge and understanding of the world and other people.
Spiritual awakenings are not only experienced through religious activities and methods. It can also be experienced through magical and spiritual experiences. Being open to all life, all backgrounds, and all types of energy and beliefs as people from all over the world have a different way to connect to the one we call GOD, the Creator.
