Spiritual Awareness through the Lens of Enlightened Souls

What is Spiritual Awareness?

Socrates said, “to know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.”

So, how do you gain awareness of the source of wisdom?

Is this knowledge coming from your mind?

In this modern-day world, it’s often easy to get caught up with the stories of who we really are. Our mind often leads us to think that we are this human body and mind with all of its limitations.

Our society, cultures, or environments leads us to think that we must strive for some outside of ourselves as a measure of success. Author JJ DiGeronimo refers to modern-day professional women’s struggles as “chasing the oasis of success.”

Many people unsuccessfully strive for a material goal all their lives, failing to realize that if they had put forth one-tenth of the concentration used in seeking worldly things into an effort to find God first, they could then have had fulfillments of not only some, but all of their hearts’ desires.


In her book, “Seeking” JJ DiGeronimo sought to understand “what is this all for?” after achieving great heights of success yet realizing she felt empty. Like many professional women that feel depleted, isolated, or lost, JJ realized that her soul yearned for greater awareness or inner awakening.

Awareness is about stepping into your own light and realizing your immense self-worth.

In her book, “Original Wisdom: Harness the Power of the Authentic You” author Donna Bond describes our multidimensional being consisting of your big “S” self (your Soul) which is connected to “All that is” and your small “s” self which is your physical body and personality which is guided by the ego. The mind is connected to the ego, which operates on making future decisions based on past experiences.

Our Soul, often referred to as our Higher Self, has the capacity to guide us through intuition.

This Higher Self is a divine light that is authentic, courageous, calm, creative, and intelligent. This is the Source that we often forget to acknowledge. This inner being is the source of the wisdom each of us seeks.

SPIRITUAL AWARENESS of our Higher Self allows us to realize that our Soul is energy that is connected to the Source energy of the Universe.

Saints like my guru, Paramahansa Yogananda have illuminated the path to realizing our Higher Self through mindfulness modalities like meditation.

“You realize that all along, there was something tremendous within you, and you did not know it.”


One cultivates this realization through tools like meditation.

Enlighted Souls with Spiritual Awarness of their Higher Self

During the month of March, my Omni Mindfulness podcast guests and I delve deeper into the concept of “Spiritual Awareness”.

While spirituality often has strong connotations that might feel esoteric, my guests help bring this concept into the context of modern-day living. Many of us get so busy managing our personal life and work life, leaving little time to connect to our human selves to our Higher Self.

Each of my guests offers strategic tools and techniques for creating greater alignment in body, mind, and spirit.

And each of my guests offers wisdom on how we can elevate our life by harnessing the power of our souls.

Tune in to Omni Mindfulness Podcast soundbites from this month’s guests to expand your understanding of spiritual awarness.
