Are you aware of how your soul works through you?
Do you take notice and listen to that inner voice? Do you see your future dreams in your mind? Do you feel your emotions both love and pain?
Your soul is the built in Divine-energetic-intelligence that guides you towards a life of creation, fulfilment and bliss. It wants to experience itself and it wants to express itself.
Because majority of the world aren’t even aware that they are in fact a spiritual being having a human experience they unconsciously neglect their inner desires and soul identity. This leads to struggle. You are left feeling unfulfilled, unhappy and lost.
There are a number of ways your soul guides you and I will mention a couple of them below;
1. Through your heart
Have you ever focused directly on your heart while meditating? This is a very important exercise I teach my clients and students when trying to communicate with their true self. I find that when I do this I immediately have an emotional response and an answer or knowing appears right before me. Sometimes I don’t even realise that I am resenting someone or that I am unhappy with a situation. So by using this exercise I am able to go straight to the core of the issue and guess what? The issue is actually never about someone or something external. Your heart/soul will always give you the reflection that you still hold within you.
The heart is a powerful organ and plays an important role within our physical bodies. I personally believe it is the one organ in our body that connects us with our soul and Universal wisdom. It is the first organ to develop after conception and starts beating before the brain begins to develop. I believe the heart is superior to the brain in many ways and in fact leads our brain to a greater understanding of ourselves and life. Scientific studies are now showing this to be true.
It has been discovered that the heart has its own complex intrinsic nervous system that is sufficiently sophisticated to qualify as a “little brain” in its own right (heartmath.org). It has a magnetic field that can be measured several feet away from the body. This is why we are able to literally ‘feel’ and sense another’s emotions. The heart takes in what it picks up from the environment and communicates with the brain to create a physiological response.
“Since emotional processes can work faster than the mind, it takes a power stronger than the mind to bend perception, override emotional circuitry, and provide us with intuitive feeling instead. It takes the power of the heart.”– Doc Childre, Founder, Institute of HeartMath.
It is the heart that holds the answers to your life.
To effectively communicate with your heart begin by meditating for at least a couple of minutes. When you have reached a state of relaxation and a higher level of consciousness shift your awareness to your heart. You can imagine a small white ball of light that resides within your heart to help you focus. When you are there ask your heart what it wants to tell you. You may be very surprised what comes up for you.
2. Through your dreams and desires.
Your soul guides you to dreams you wish to experience.
Our soul has its own unique identity. Each and every soul is made up in its own expression of the Divine. Knowing your soul desires requires an extensive amount of self-knowledge and it also requires you to ‘follow your heart.’
You will know when something isn’t right for you because;
a) You will feel inauthentic – meaning it just won’t flow naturally through you. You will be acting rather than being.
b) Your body will be showing you through physiological responses – for example through gut feelings. You will also more than likely become too stressed and not make progress.
c) You just won’t be fulfilled. To begin with you might get all excited and feel like it is right for you but more often than not that is Mr Ego talking. Our ego and soul are two different aspects to our being. Our ego has absolutely no interest in our dreams, it just wants to keep us safe. So if it isn’t right for you after the novelty wears off you will probably become bored with it.
My philosophy is based on the fact that we must understand ourselves completely by embracing everything there is to us. Our soul is the driving force behind who we are in this life. Get to know your deepest self, there is a ton of gold just waiting to be explored.
