I would love it if you could describe exactly what happened. I love hearing stories like that. I have had several of them in my life. Click on my profile and read my answer to “Why do you believe in God?” I wrote a story there!
You do not need to be in a church in order to have a spiritual awakening. Even people who have never step foot in a church have had them. People of all walks of life and backgrounds, even those who don’t believe in God have had them.
I think that everybody has a different definition of what spiritual awakening means. What it would mean for me is when I truly “wake up” at the moment and feel an incredible presence of something more powerful, beautiful, loving that is greater than myself. It has an incredible impact on myself, it is very healing, it causes me to be more loving, to be more aware of myself, who I am, etc.
