Through the guidance of our magnificent Soul, we are gently led into places beyond what we could ever imagine – we need only to listen, observe, and be open to the possibilities…
Our Soul is born of Spirit and at the very core of our multi-faceted being. And it is through this radiant consciousness that we create our experiences through a process of remembering all that we are in our authentic nature. And it is through this same radiant consciousness that we are always guided along our path whether we are aware of it or not. Let us explore some of the many ways in which our Soul reveals to us who we truly are through the things that naturally unfold in our everyday experiences.
Let me begin by saying that our soulfulness was openly expressed when we were very young children because we were still unencumbered by all the things we have grown into through our personal experiences and environmental influences.
We need only to look at our young children to see the evidence of their amazing soulfulness. The first thing we will notice is that while all children share similar traits especially within their families, they are uniquely different. There is always something special that sets them apart from their siblings and other children. We will witness how free they are in their personal expressions in what they say; what they like to wear, the colors they enjoy most, the people they feel most comfortable being around, how they use their creativity and imagination, what they gravitate towards in the way of art, music, and other activities, the wisdom they already possess, their zest for life, their openness, and so much more.
The truth from this perspective is that all of these things and more are still very much a part of who we are and expressed in some manner yet today. While this may not be readily apparent, we may find that what we are doing right now in our chosen profession for instance, directly relates to what we enjoyed doing as a child. And if we are not, we may be feeling unfulfilled and are in pursuit of what brings us joy. The significance in both instances is that we were and are always guided by our Soul…again, whether we are aware of it or not.
When we feel unhappy or restlessness, it is our soul stirring within and guiding us to move into something that is more in alignment with itself as us. This “stirring” is about change and moves us closer to remembering who we are. Change is a natural part of our being…just like the changing seasons in Mother Nature. The truth is we are no different from what we see out in nature, for we are not separate from it. In fact, when we look closer, we will see the similarities in our transformations and growth patterns as those of trees, flowers, and every living thing. What we will notice most of all, is that nothing can stop life from changing, growing, or transforming itself. Let us look at some of the ways in which nature continued to evolve…
When one leaf falls from a tree, there will be others to replace it; A flower comes to full bloom when the bud is ready to open to expose its full beauty; The caterpillar changes into a magnificent butterfly; A tiny acorn grows into a mighty oak tree; weather conditions affect the growth of plants; and so on.
So, what are we to glean from this? As we are part of nature, we will also continue to change and evolve throughout our entire lives as well. For example, we know that physically we grow from infancy into adulthood which is apparent through the changes that happens within and outside our bodies. As for our emotional and mental states, we will continue to develop through every season of our experiences and what we learn through them, which incidentally affects our physical bodies as well. It is important to accept that everything we have experienced thus far regardless of the circumstances has been a significant aspect our spiritual growth and the evolution of our beautiful Soul.
So, what are some of the others ways in which we are guided? And how does it show up in our experiences today? Intuition is one of the ways our Soul most definitely speaks to us. We receive inklings of information that resonate with us beyond what we may understand, yet know beyond reason. For instance, have you ever had a feeling that compels you to call a family member or friend right away only to find out there was something very important they needed to tell you? Have you ever found yourself going in a different direction than you may have planned with regards to a career or vocation, and found the perfect opportunity that feels like a dream come true? The voice beyond reason is at work here…our intuitive voice.
How about our dreams? Many clues are revealed through what we experience in our dreams because they hold nothing back, and provide us with honest answers to anything we may want or need to know. It behooves us to pay close attention to them for they are indeed a powerful way in which we are guided to move forward during our waking hours.
Our Soul also can be felt and seen through the things we enjoy such as art, music, writing, and other hobbies and pastimes. Believe it or not, there are significant messages within them. For instance, what are we most focused on while engaging in these activities? Pathways? Beauty? Light? Flowers? Animals? Angels? People? Children?
How about the people that we gravitate toward and vice versa. Are you surrounded by, Teachers? Artists? Leaders? Writers? Healers? Do you think there is something significant in these interactions? This writer thinks so. Remember, we attract into our lives who and what we are.
What about déjà vu? Could this be a form of guidance for us to remember who we are? Something to ponder is it not? The very idea of feeling that we have experienced something before is intriguing at best even if we haven’t actually experienced it…or have we? If nothing else, it could leave us feeling that there is much more to our life than we might imagine.
The Soul’s Journey is a beautiful unfolding of how our lives continue to evolve. We may or may not remember everything about where we have been or where we are going, yet when we are open to all the possibilities, we will glean some insight into who we are at the deepest level of our authenticity. We are simply encouraged to be aware and mindful along the way and recognize that we are more than what meets the eye…more than our physical being. Remember, we are spiritual light beings having a human experience. And as such, we have the innate power and the wisdom to look beyond what we can ascertain through our humanity and learn to perceive life through the spiritual discernment of our higher self. It is within and through our wholeness that we can perceive our Soul. Being authentic is to know and accept all that we are in our wholeness…and living our lives from a realistic place of where we are in this important moment, and in balance with both our spiritual and physical nature. We have all come to the planet earth to do or learn something significant to our Soul’s Journey.
Again, listening and being observant is important if we are to uncover the truth of our own unique existence, as well as how we create harmony with other souls. Everything we do affects everyone and everything else. That is how life works. The beauty is that whenever we look in the eyes of another, we see their shining soul looking back at us. This is a beautiful exchange of energy because it gives us an inkling of how connected we really are, especially when there is an instant recognition of something profoundly familiar. Whatever that resonance is, we are remembering something…
Overall, everything we experience serves to gently guide us into remembering more clearly the nature of our magnificent Soul and who we are through its divine expression. And when we consciously allow ourselves to be in this natural flow of its guidance, we will take our journey even more profoundly into heightened levels of our divinity and bring to light extraordinary demonstrations of our inherent greatness.
There is so much more to learn along the way…perhaps you have other ideas as to how you are guided throughout your own life. We are all in this life together, and it through our interactions with each other, that we begin to realize the significance of our own soulful journey and how it relates to the evolution of us all…in our Oneness.
Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you. Namaste’.
