Part of the awakening journey is what I call the rude awakening. During the rude awakening, we begin to see people around us for who they really are and not what they want us to see. I am thankful every day for being an empath, since the rising of my Kundalini energy.
When I awaken, I begin to see others’ fears, selfishness, pain, insecurities, and other ego related negative emotions. Most importantly, I begin to see my own fears very clearly.
In the beginning, it is a great shock and disbelief that I had not seen these negative emotions within them earlier. How did I miss this? What caused me to fail to see this within them? Was I blinded by their charm?
However, once our eyes are open, we are no longer blind to this reality. I do not believe they are bad people, but they are human. I also see how those negative emotions are reflected within me. I know in time, I will forgive them and recognize them for who they are, but I will no longer trust them as I had in the past.
These rude awakenings are part of my spiritual journey, I believe. When our eyes are finally open, we do not only see the good things in life, but also the negative ones. (Copyright 2019 awakening journey with all rights reserved)

nodding I have said for years now that I have gotten very good at seeing the “darkness” within people – disempowering programs, fears, ego issues, wounds. I’ve also said that I can’t wait for the day when I get to see more and more of people’s True Selves.
From my Unconditional Love post:
” … distinguish between the SOUL that is standing in front of you and the ENERGIES which they are currently carrying. Mmm?!
“When we talk about compassion we talk in terms of being kind. But compassion is not so much being kind; it is being creative [enough] to wake a person up.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoch
Frankly, what could be “kinder” than that?! Yep, call those ENERGIES on the frickin’ carpet. You’ll be serving that SOUL well by doing so. ”
And just re-member, when they re-act and lash out at you over calling them on their current ENERGIES, it’s not their True Self that is re-acting, but their disempowering programs, etc. Oh dear, to tick off their programming! Who cares! Their SOUL will appreciate what you are doing for them. They may not be conscious of it now, but some day they will be… and will be grateful to you.
You said: “When our eyes are finally open, we do not only see the good things in life, but also the negative ones. ”
Indeed. We are to see it ALL. (The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, that we were previously denied the fruit of) If you ever catch yourself saying “either / or” instead of “and / both” you’re still in Duality. We are to acknowledge (and in some cases INtegrate) both “sides” of whatever – light / dark, Divine / human, Masculine / Feminine. We cannot be whole (healed), balanced, and INtegrated (Unity) if we just keep swinging the pendulum between extreme polarities.
