The spiritual awakening journey is about returning to the center of yourself. It is a homecoming to your Soul or True Nature.
But the spiritual awakening path is not linear. We do not move from point A to point B in a single straight line. Instead, we often move in spirals and concentric circles.
Contrary to its popular depiction, spiritual awakening isn’t like hiking up an ascending mountain – instead, it’s comparable to a journey taken through a series of rippling valleys.
These valleys contain benevolent guides and treasures, but also traps, monsters, and other perils.
We can go from feeling blissfully connected to devastated in the space of a few steps. But regardless of what you’re feeling, be assured that so long as you’re on this path, you are always learning. You are always growing. And you are moving ever-closer to the center of the mandala: your Eternal, Unchanging Self.
Spiritual Awakening Test
If you’ve read our previous spiritual awakening article, you’ll be familiar with the seven different stages of this path. The free spiritual awakening test below makes this knowledge experiential so that you can discover where you are at right now. Doing so will help you to gain your bearings, orient yourself, and know what to do next.
Be aware, however, that there are no “better” or “worse” stages. This isn’t a competition. Furthermore, it’s common to move backward and forward on the path.
Ultimately we’ve tried our best to define the indefinable. So be aware of the limitations of this test, while also seeing its value.
Finally, if you like this test, consider signing up for our free Spiritual Awakening course or checking out our Spiritual Awakening Bundle.

Hi Im Dwayne I dont know how to explain or maybe you understand , but i was on a Q/A app called Quora and I stared off at the ground and felt tingling and Ill to the bottom of my stomach, and I looked at my screen to see a question “How did you like your spiritul wakening? so i asked what and how it happend and i read it was a hate circle? so as i got up to go upstairs to bed i had great difficulty not sure what to think, whats your advise or what the hell happened?
I believe I’m fairly new to this and it’s a very emotional and overwhelming feeling at times. I’m trying to seek guidance from others and connect with those who are going through what I’m feeling right now.
I’m commenting purely on the fact that there is 111 comments. Mine makes 112. Also I have found this extremely beneficial. I have just realised why the past 10 to 12 years have been so dreadfully terrible in every way, but the past 8 months, things have started to change. Thankyou for the amount of knowledge you share.
Your website and work is wonderful. I did the test but received no feedback! Not sure why, or perhaps there is none.
It’s always interesting to test how far along the path we are.
Kundalini awakening…actually I didnt know it was kundalini…I just felt surge between my legs during chi gong practice(been practicing regularly for few months). So long story short I ended up i mental hospital,because I walked naked in my city during bright day…anyhow, I managed to keep some common sense in myself,still felt I was somewhere inside not completely lost,and what was happening to
Me was not normal… they were giving me tablets,but I threw them
Away luckily… after 1 week I was released… I am on my spiritual awakening already 2 years I think…give or take… I just wanted to say…I just love you guys so much! Cheers from Croatia!
I have always enjoyed the life journey. Good bad or indifferent. Life is a fascinating quest for what and to where I don’t know, but that really doesn’t matter to much I just want to see where it goes and how far I will get.
I have always had weird feelings different from others and get high anxiety and deja vu happens a lot with me. I truly want to either but it rest or embrace this gift 100%.
I feel I know what the outcome of this awakening is goin to be.
I’m already writing this story to help inspire the world
First thank you so much for this page. It has helped me understand what I’m going through a little more. However, I get this feeling in waves almost ? I’m not too sure how to describe it. I always feel like I’m doing something wrong & time is running out.. somedays I can handle the feeling other times its so strong it makes me shaky and week. Its not a scary feeling just a feeling of like, “hurry up girl! You’ve wasted enough time get right now!” Please tell me what you think.
I am so lost in life right now.
I’ve suffered much loss, disfunction, self-destruction, and many hours of lonely blind wandering over the past few years.
Reading and writing are only slightly helpful with my progress, and I’m afraid that I may be spending too much time trying to figure out what to use and what to disregard.
I know that a psychospiritual approach is right for me (I enjoy learning about psychological AND spiritual aspects of myself and others!), but I may be missing something important…
