Mark Pitstick, MA, DC

Congratulations! If you are reading this article:

1. You or a loved one have had a spiritually transformative experience, and/or

2. You are open-minded and curious

What is a spiritually-transformative experience or STE? It’s a transcendent event that can inspire your beliefs and behavior for the better. Descriptions of it may vary depending upon your religion, culture, etc. but synonymous phrases include:

1. awakening to a greater reality

2. seeing the Light

3. knowing that energy cannot be destroyed, but only change form

4. being saved

5. realizing the great news that sets you free

6. seeing with your inner heart as well as your physical eyes

7. activating your upper chakras

8. being born again

9. seeing with your third/spiritual eye

10. becoming enlightened

11. realizing there is more to life than meets the eye

12. knowing you are one with God/Source Energy/Life right now and always

What causes an STE? It can be triggered in different ways; there might be one big cause or a number of smaller ones that culminate in an STE. Possibilities include:

1. near-death experience (NDE)

2. after-death contact (ADC)

3. out-of-body experience (OBE)

4. exposure to violence or catastrophe 5. the birth of a loved one

6. the death of a loved one—person or pet—especially a child

7. an overwhelmingly beautiful nature scene such as sunset, stars, water

8. centering practices such as meditation, chanting, sacred dance

9. knowing the collective afterlife evidence

10. studying enlightening spiritual/religious teachings

11. prudent use of entheogens (consciousness-altering plants)

12. having loving, intelligent and aware parents or other caretakers

13. being an “old” or advanced soul and never forgetting “the big picture”

In short, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” Any experience can be the final piece of the puzzle that helps you awaken to life’s magnificence.
