Remembering the Soul’s Journey

thCA2B7706Through 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 57soulfulness.  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…

calm-water-angel-fairyWhen 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.

Spiritual-DoorSo, 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 psychesby, 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 Beautiful-Angel-angels-8025041-1024-768beyond 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’.

Divine Consciousness

 

presence_of_gaiaIt is through our own Divine Consciousness that we are empowered to create a life that emanates from a place of understanding the nature of our own divinity

WITHIN US lies the Presence of Life itself…a Divine Consciousness that moves through our being as natural as the air we breathe…it is our very breath, our divinity, our awareness.  We are pure consciousness in motion and are intertwined with every aspect of life itself. Whatever we want, need, or desire to express is only a powerful creative thought away from being so. We simply need to direct our heartfelt intentions with confidence and in faith knowing that our dreams, aspirations, and resolutions are taking magnificent form right now.

Divine Consciousness, from the perspective of our mental awareness will help us to understand how we relate to and create the world around us.  Many of us are familiar with the term, “Christ Consciousness” which suggests to us that we all have the power and wisdom to create our lives from that innate love present within us just like Jesus Christ did when he lived on earth.  Being in this higher state of mental awareness opens us up to being more compassionate with ourselves and others.  It is a way of being that invites us to honor every living thing knowing that we are all expressions of the Divine.  It is learning to walk on our path with immeasurable faith.  It encourages us to cultivate peace, calm, and patience.  It is being kind and loving. It is about living in gratitude. It is being mindful and discerning with our thoughts knowing how powerful they are in creating our circumstances, and how they ultimately influence us all.

This “Christ Consciousness”  we speak of is that higher level of awareness that Jesus exemplified in his life.  This level of awareness lies deeply within us as our “Higher Self”, which emanates from our Divine Consciousness. It is from that place that Jesus lived and created his life.  He lived in faith knowing who he was and what he came here to do.  He allowed himself to be guided to fulfill his divine purpose.  He embraced his innate wisdom to understand how Life responded to his feelings, thoughts and words as seen throughout his story.  He encouraged others in his day to embrace that divine presence within themselves.  And he continues to be an inspiration to us today.

While Jesus was a great example for us to follow, and mention him because we are entering the Holiday Season, there are many other enlightened souls who have inspired the masses. People like Mother Theresa, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King have allowed themselves to be guided to act out of love by something much greater than themselves. We have also been inspired by ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We know who they are.  Perhaps some of you reading this have inspired others.  This I am sure of.  Why?

We are all beautiful souls with a gift to share that comes to light through our individual uniqueness.  This is a significant part of our life’s journey.  Like Jesus and other enlightened souls, we too are guided by something much greater than ourselves that helps us to remember who we really are in our authenticity, what it is we are here to share, and what we are here to do.  We need only to become more aware of how that guidance comes to us.  And when we are open to it, we will move more gently through our lives with a greater sense of purpose and a more profound feeling of our connection to all that exists.  We will know that everything that happens within us, outside of us, and through us is in absolute divine order.  We will come to a place of knowing that behind everything we experience is an awareness that reflects our divinity.

Please know that where we are in this moment is exactly where we need to be…no judgment.  Once we accept and understand this, we will also come to know that there is no set way in which to move into higher levels of our conscious because we have the freedom to choose how to live within our own sensibilities with the understanding we have in any given moment.  Life moves in stages, and we learn as we go.  There is no other way.  We will embrace our divinity more fully when we learn to trust that life works for us all equally through the loving support of the Universe, which involves every one of us.

“When we learn to trust the Universe, we shall be happy, prosperous and well”. 

~ Ernest Holmes

So, how do we learn to trust the Universe?  We are invited to observe without judgement how our lives are unfolding, especially when we focus on all the positive outcomes.  We can see it through all the synchronicity, so-called coincidences, and miracles that happen in our lives.  We all have wonderful stories about these kind of events, do we not?  The more we observe, the more we believe, and the more we believe, the more our trust deepens.  The truth from this perspective is that the more we trust that we are always supported by a most loving Universe, the more aware we become of how it works magnificently in and throughout our lives.

This is not to say that the Universe only supports us when things are going well. We are always supported even when we are not able to see  it through the times when we feel challenged or experience difficulties.  The loving support lies within these events and are in fact highly significant to our journey because they can awaken us to a deepened sense of our higher self.  When we recognize that everything happens for a reason and that it all serves to expand our level of awareness, we will begin to understand just how the Universe truly works for us and how it brings to light everything we need to learn, heal, and grow.

The way in which we experience life is directly related to how we interact with it through our consciousness.  For instance, if we want to feel loved, we have to bring forward the love we already are by being loving with ourselves and others.  If we want friends, we have to be a friend and have a friendly demeanor.   If we want peace in our lives and in the lives of others, we have to be at peace with ourselves. We are pure energy emitting and transmitting all our thoughts and feelings throughout our own beingness, our environment, and throughout the Universe. It is through this powerful energy that life responds to us in kind, and ultimately influences the collective and unity consciousness through the memes or traditions seen and felt throughout the world.  This is simply how life works through the Spiritual Laws that are activated by the vibration of all our thoughts…i.e. the Law of Attraction.

Cultivating our higher sense of self may also mean having the courage to remove the masks of our conditioning and begin to be honest with ourselves…by accepting all that we are and all that we are not.  We are invited to live and breathe in our authenticity.  We may need to let go of those things that no longer serve us in order to move forward.  We may also want to consider taking time to be still, perhaps in some form  of meditation or contemplation.  Allowing ourselves to be in the silence allows us to hear, feel, and sense who we are more profoundly, and awakens our divine nature.  The silence opens up the portals of our higher levels of consciousness and moves us into the realm of greater awareness.  An awareness that goes beyond our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and all that we experience.  We will feel more at peace with ourselves and are more equipped to respond to life from a more serene and balanced place of our beingness.  We will find ourselves being more creative and resourceful.  Our dreams will be filled with profound messages to guide us along our path.  We will have more courage to soar into those higher places within us that we have not dared to go before. We will begin to understand what it means to truly love ourselves, and how that love translates into loving others more deeply.

We are all here to help each other to heal, grow and evolve.  Let us embrace our divinity by sharing our love, light, and inspiration. Let us remember to take care of ourselves by also taking care of others. They go hand in hand. Doing so is the greatest leap forward to the peace we all seek…for it lies within us…it begins with us…IT IS US.

Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you.  Namaste’.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with many Divine Blessings.
