Recent Writing: Existential Crisis and Financial Realities

I resent having existential awareness during this time of financial complexity. I feel as if others, maybe who have not yet awakened to the unfair realities of the human existence would be able to more easily navigate this, simply paying what they are told to pay and going through the motions co-operating completely within the system. I have the urge to do that just to get it over with. I desire the ability to go on auto-pilot and just agreeably follow one step and then the next.

What Is An Existential Crisis?

An existential crisis is a profound and often unsettling confrontation with the fundamental questions of human existence. It transcends the ordinary ponderings of life’s purpose, delving into the very core of one’s identity, values, and beliefs. In the midst of an existential crisis, individuals grapple with the meaning of their existence, the nature of reality, and the significance of their actions. It is a transformative and sometimes disorienting experience, challenging preconceived notions and prompting a deep introspection that can lead to personal growth and a reevaluation of life’s priorities. This crisis is not a sign of weakness but rather an opportunity for profound self-discovery, pushing individuals to confront the uncertainties of life and emerge with a renewed sense of purpose and authenticity.

Am I Going Through An Existential Crisis?

​​An existential crisis manifests in a variety of emotional, psychological, and behavioural symptoms, serving as a signal that an individual is grappling with profound questions about their existence. Emotional indicators may include an overwhelming sense of anxiety, despair, or emptiness, as well as a heightened awareness of mortality. Individuals experiencing an existential crisis often undergo significant mood swings and may feel a deep sense of alienation from others. On a cognitive level, there’s a persistent questioning of life’s purpose, leading to a pervasive sense of confusion and an examination of personal values and beliefs. Behavioural symptoms may range from a sudden desire for significant life changes, such as career shifts or relationship adjustments, to a withdrawal from social activities in an attempt to seek solitude and introspection. Recognizing these symptoms is crucial, as addressing an existential crisis involves acknowledging these internal struggles and seeking support and guidance for navigating this transformative journey.

During an existential crisis, individuals often grapple with profound questions that go to the core of their existence. Here are some questions that may arise and could be explored during this introspective period:

  • What is the meaning of my life?
  • Who am I, fundamentally?
  • What gives my life purpose and fulfilment?
  • How do I reconcile my beliefs and values with the realities of life?
  • Do my actions align with my authentic self?
  • What is the nature of reality and existence?
  • How do I cope with the inevitability of mortality?
  • What legacy or impact do I want to leave behind?
  • Am I living in alignment with my true desires and passions?
  • How do I find meaning in the face of suffering or adversity?
  • What role do relationships play in my sense of purpose?
  • How can I cultivate a sense of connection and belonging?
  • What is the significance of joy and happiness in my life?
  • How can I navigate the balance between personal freedom and societal expectations?
  • What lessons can I learn from past experiences to shape my future?

Exploring these questions can be a part of the process of self-discovery and may help individuals navigate their existential crisis with greater understanding and resilience. Seeking support from friends, family, or professionals can also be beneficial during this introspective journey.

What is the Spiritual Awakening?

A spiritual awakening is a profound, transformative experience marked by a heightened sense of awareness, connection, and understanding of one’s inner self and the broader universe. It often involves a shift in consciousness, leading individuals to question the nature of reality, their purpose, and the interconnectedness of all things. During a spiritual awakening, people may undergo a significant internal and external transformation, embracing new perspectives, deepening their sense of compassion, and seeking a more meaningful and authentic way of living. This awakening can be triggered by various life events, experiences, or a gradual inner evolution, ultimately guiding individuals towards a profound and often ongoing journey of spiritual exploration and self-discovery.

Am I Going Through A Spiritual Awakening?

Experiencing a spiritual awakening is a deeply personal and subjective process, and individuals may interpret the signs differently. However, common indicators of a spiritual awakening may include:

  • Heightened Awareness: A person undergoing a spiritual awakening often experiences an increased sense of awareness, both of themselves and the world around them. This may manifest as a greater sensitivity to emotions, nature, and the interconnectedness of all things.
  • Shift in Priorities: Values and priorities may undergo a significant shift. Materialistic pursuits may lose importance, and there may be a newfound emphasis on compassion, personal growth, and a connection to something greater than oneself.
  • Seeking Meaning: There is a deep exploration of life’s purpose and a quest for meaning. Individuals may question their beliefs, values, and the nature of reality, leading to a search for a more profound understanding of existence.
  • Emotional Turmoil: Spiritual awakenings can be emotionally intense, involving periods of confusion, anxiety, or even bliss. Emotional upheavals are common as individuals grapple with the transformation taking place within.
  • Connection to Higher Self: A person may feel a stronger connection to their inner self, often described as the “higher self” or a deeper, more authentic aspect of their being.
  • Increased Compassion: There is often a heightened sense of empathy and compassion for others. Individuals may feel a stronger desire to contribute positively to the well-being of those around them and the world at large.
  • Shift in Beliefs: Long-held beliefs may be questioned and reevaluated. This can involve a departure from traditional religious or societal norms in favor of a more personalised and experiential spirituality.
  • Synchronicities: Many people going through a spiritual awakening report experiencing synchronicities – meaningful coincidences that seem to align with their inner journey.

A spiritual awakening is a gradual and ongoing process, and not everyone experiences it in the same way. If someone is unsure whether they are going through a spiritual awakening, seeking guidance from spiritual m
