What does it feel like to become enlightened?.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


“Is enlightenment instant, does it come in waves, or both?”


Real enlightenment is awakening to the reality that our true self is not limited to sensory or mental experiences of the mind and body. 

If the person pursues an interest in spiritual knowledge and practices, then self-realization is usually gradual, smooth, and relatively unremarkable. 

But occasionally the external signs of awakening can be dramatic and brief. 

Those dramatic experiences are often how we think of enlightenment because they make such memorable stories. 

Life quickly turns from misery to bliss or switches from dark depression to the celestial vision of saints and angels.  

But all these colorful experiences are due to the mind and body making adjustments to align themselves to the awakened presence of pure awareness. 

However, the actuality of enlightenment is only pure consciousness knowing itself, not the mental and physical adjustments happening on the periphery. 

That is why some people will have intense experiences or feelings and others whose mind/body connection to consciousness is more open will make that transition more smoothly.
