Unlock Your Christ Consciousness: Stepping Into Oneness with All That Is
Are you ready to take your spiritual journey to the next level?
Chances are you’ve heard the term “Christ consciousness” a time or two. Whether you’re a Christian, Buddhist, yogi, or simply following your unique spiritual path, the term has become quite popular.
At the core of Jesus’ teachings, this Christ consciousness is known as a profound and mystical expression of divine love. If you read the Bible, you’ll see plenty of references to the “Christ”, as well as Jesus the Christ. This powerful force of love is not limited to Christianity and has been felt by individuals across the globe regardless of their spiritual background.
Whether you are just beginning your spiritual journey or have been on the path for a while, exploring the concept of Christ consciousness can deepen your understanding of God, or the divine, and your connection to the universe.
Some religious folks don’t like the term “Christ consciousness” because they attribute it to the New Age movement. If you don’t care for it, you don’t have to read on, or you can read on with an open mind and heart, trusting that the intent of this article is to help everyone come to know God, the Divine Mystery, in a deeper way – and express this knowing as Love in a world that needs it.
If you’re ready to discover and access more of your divine power within, then you may be interested in learning more about this state of higher awareness and how it can help us transform our lives by aligning with God.
In this blog post, we’ll explore what Christ Consciousness is, how to tap into it, and the benefits it can bring. Get ready to unlock your higher potential!
What Is Christ Consciousness?
The essence of Christ consciousness can be described as a state of being in which an individual has a heightened awareness of their true nature and their interconnectedness with all of creation. This awareness is accompanied by a deep sense of compassion, love, and unity with all beings.
Again, Christ consciousness is not exclusive to any particular religion or tradition. It can be found in various spiritual practices and is often described as a unifying force that transcends the boundaries of different belief systems.
At its core, Christ consciousness is a recognition of the divine spark that exists within each of us. It is an understanding that we are all interconnected and that our actions and thoughts have a ripple effect on the world around us.
As we cultivate Christ consciousness within ourselves, it’s helpful to look at the life of Jesus as a model. We commit to becoming more Christ-like! As we do, we begin to live in a more authentic and meaningful way. We become more aware of our thoughts and actions and how they impact others, and we are able to cultivate a greater sense of empathy and compassion towards ourselves and others.
Since time immemorial, this has been the goal of many spiritual seekers. With a great deal of effort and dedication, it is possible to access this state of higher consciousness and unlock the power within. This can help us to become aware of our true potential, realize our oneness with all that is, and experience a deep sense of love and grace from God.
In essence, it is about reclaiming your inner power and wisdom (as spirit or energy) as you step into living with more purpose, peace, and joy in your life.
That being said, I want to mention that this is a journey, and becoming “Christ conscious” tends to happen over time. Some people reach this state faster than others, but try not to get discouraged if you’re not there. Again, it’s a journey and we should give ourselves permission to enjoy the journey.
How To Tap Into Christ Consciousness
I love how the term “Christ consciousness” is becoming more mainstream. For those of us who happen to love bridging the gap between spirituality and science, or are simply mystics, it’s a term that resonates deeply. It goes beyond church dogma or the “all positive vibes” that we encounter on both sides of the spiritual coin.
In essence, the concept of Christ consciousness reveals the profound depths of Jesus’ message, his significance to humanity, and the symbolic representation of his teachings. However, Christ consciousness is not limited to the Christian faith, as it encompasses a universal spiritual awakening.
To put it simply, Christ consciousness is synonymous with terms such as self-realization, oneness, or enlightenment. It signifies a heightened state of awareness that transcends the limitations of the ego and physical world, and connects us to the divine essence of the universe.
We must remember that Jesus was both human and divine. St. Paul the Apostle explains this in his letter to the Philippians:
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2:5-11)
You see, Jesus personifies both the holiness associated with divinity and humility intrinsic to humanity — a sublime duality that continues to fascinate and inspire us today.
The Path To Christ Consciousness
The path to accessing Christ Consciousness, or the sacred union between you and God, begins with stilling the mind and body through listening prayer, meditation, and mindfulness practices. Beyond the dogmatic interpretation, the historical editing of biblical texts, and the weight of the Christian church’s traditions, lies a profound mystic figure known as Jesus. By tapping into the essence of his teachings, we can discover a path towards greater spiritual fulfillment and harmony in our own lives.
The following are some practices you can use to move toward Christ consciousness:
1. Listening & Fervent Prayer
Years ago, I left the church and left prayer as well. I gravitated more toward affirmations and finding enlightenment on my own. That only led me so far, and it led me to intense inner turmoil. Now, years later, I believe immensely in the power of prayer.
In fact, prayer is an important way to connect with the higher state of “Christ Consciousness”. We can pray in various ways, just like Jesus did. We can actively pray, asking for needs, we can actively listen, just sitting in silence and listening, we can command, contemplate, and so on.
Listening prayer is a powerful form of communication between you and God. It involves a commitment to paying attention to the voice of God, and learning to discern His will and purpose for your life.
In listening prayer, the aim is not only to hear what God says, but also to foster an ongoing relationship by engaging in meaningful dialogue. This can take many forms, such as silent contemplation, meditation, journaling, or scripture reading. The key here is to be willing to remain open to God’s guidance and direction, with humility and trust.
Listening prayer requires a certain level of vulnerability as well as ongoing effort in deepening your relationship with God through various spiritual disciplines. In doing so, you can experience comfort, healing and renewed hope that comes from being in tune with the heart of God.
Meditation can help us cultivate peace, clarity, and presence, while also expanding our awareness so we can become more attuned with ourselves and the divine.
Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of our thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment, which helps us to be more present in the moment. It encourages us to take a step back from the things that seem to control our lives, such as stress or fear. Through mindfulness, we can create a greater sense of space between ourselves and our automatic reactions to situations, thus allowing us to choose how we want to respond instead.
4. Inner Work for Christ Consciousness
With a background in mental health, I believe in the power of engaging in inner work. What I mean by this is the practice of shining the light of awareness onto my inner landscape for the purpose of self-exploration, healing, and spiritual transformation.
Throughout my journey, I have extensively explored and practiced three main forms of inner work: self-love, inner child work, and shadow work. I have written plenty about these practices to help others on their own journeys of self-discovery and healing.
I always suggest starting with cultivating self-love and a compassionate relationship with oneself. It sets the foundation for the other two forms of inner work and makes them much more accessible.
There are countless ways you can incorporate inner work into your daily life. For example, you can journal, analyze your dreams, use somatic therapies, art therapy, and many other practices. The key is to find what resonates with you and make it a regular part of your self-care routine.
I’ve created various guided journals that can help you with your inner work. Feel free to check them out and see what resonates with you.

5. Spend Time With And Contemplate Those Who Adored Jesus
To help you attain Christ consciousness, spent time contemplating those who followed and adored Jesus, including the words of Jesus in the New Testament. The Gospel of Thomas is also an excellent resource to explore Jesus’ words. Many Christian Mystics such as St. John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, and St. Teresa of Ávila provide a unique insight into Christ Consciousness.
I also love reading Yogananda’s work: The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You.
By reading their works, we can better understand the depth and beauty that lies in the teachings of Jesus and how it applies to our own spiritual journey.
The Benefits Of Accessing This State Of Heightened Awareness
The benefits of tapping into Christ Consciousness are profound. By aligning more closely with the divine, we can come to a deeper understanding of who we really are and our purpose in life. We gain access to newfound peace and joy that often comes from recognizing the interconnectedness of all life.
We become more aware of the love and grace that is available to us from Spirit, helping us to access our inner wisdom and guidance. In this state of heightened awareness, we can also experience a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment, allowing us to live our lives with more meaning and joy than ever before. Ultimately, accessing Christ Consciousness can help us to live with greater purpose and joy in our lives today.
The Importance Of Bringing Together Faith And Practice
The journey to Christ Consciousness is one that requires both faith and practice. By incorporating both faith and practice into our daily lives, we can access Christ Consciousness more deeply and experience the true potential of our divine nature.
As we open ourselves up to the divine, we set forth on a journey of personal growth, transformation and empowerment. Through prayer, meditation, and other spiritual practices, it is possible to access an inner knowing and guidance from spirit, living with greater joy and peace.
If you’re feeling called to dive deeper into exploring Christ Consciousness, then why not get started today? Take time daily to meditate and practice mindfulness. As you commit to this awakening journey, you’ll become more aware of the divine presence within you – to really make that connection.
Really go after this Christ state of awareness!
