2 MINUTE READ
The term “spiritual”, “enlightenment” and “intuitive” were terms you rarely heard. But now, in 2021, these terms can be heard from those who are in the “waking up” stage of life.
If you are reading this, most likely you have heard these words uttered often or have read articles with these words strewn about. But do you actually know what some of these words mean? I am certainly not judging if you aren’t quite sure. The spiritual jargon can be tricky especially when words are incorrect so often. PS: I am not the grammar police only here to help you navigate some “new age” words.

I want to iterate that there may be several definitions for some of the words. It would depend on who you ask, of course.
Now that you have some basic words for your personal use, you may feel spiritual AF and want to go using them often.
But from personal experience, sometimes you will get some strange looks and maybe even get people to say you are “weird”. I’m totally okay with that and I hope you will be too.
