Hello Curious Friends and welcome to Episode 10 of the Curiously You podcast!
Today’s episode is a fascinating deep-dive into how it really feels go through a spiritual awakening and come out the other side.
We are speaking with intuitive healer Stephanie Jameson, who sets the scene for us as a high stress, over-worked masculine-driven woman. This lasted right up until she became sick and was forced to slow down and tune in to herself.
Stephanie’s experience of childhood trauma meant she switched-off her feelings in order to keep functioning day-to-day. Her spiritual awakening forced her to stop living for logic and start to tune into her feelings. How did this look? What hidden superpowers were coming to the fore of Stephanie’s life? How did she deal with the pain of transformation?
We discuss all these aspects of spiritual awakening, as well as the catalyst awakening, and the ‘dark night of the soul’, both of which are likely to occur when we start to tune into the blueprint of our heart, but ultimately serves to heal us.
Stephanie provides lots of great advice for perspective shift, small activities we can do to make the process easier, and start to live in our truth, build our self-worth, and tune into the voice that already knows what is best for us, and is speaking from within.
This episode is perfect for you if:
– You have been switched off from your heart and feelings for so long it’s starting to affect your health and well-being.
– You are currently going through a major spiritual awakening and are finding it hard to process what is happening.
– You want some kind words, support and guidance because you are going through a particularly tough time at the moment and want to know that everything will be ok.

Key Take Homes
When we go through a true spiritual awakening we learn to switch off our logic and our mind and start to tune into the blueprint in our heart for the growth path we are destined for in this life, we can delay it, but we cannot stop it happening!
A spiritual awakening will mean that you work with the pain of change and learn to surrender to the process.
