The last few weeks have been a little rough on me physically.
Two weekends ago I was in so much pain that I couldn't even sit still or think. It was seriously interfering with everything I was doing. I was living my life but, I was in a lot of pain.
Most of you know I work a physical day job. I build cars for a living. I have done it for 25 years. (almost). This is the back drop for this blog.
Long story short I haven't been listening to my Soul. So, she decided to get my attention. Needless, to say I am now listening.
When our bodies hurt.... it's for a reason. No, not because we are getting older but, like for a spiritual reason. Let me explain.
When our Soul is trying to relay important information to us we hear a "whisper" this could be a knee starting to hurt but, it's not that bad. This is the Soul "gently" telling us to slow down, let something go, practice more self care or even to fix a relationship. If we CHOOSE not to listen to this tiny voice? Well, the Soul speaks a little louder. The knee continues to bother you to the point you are taking medicine every 4 hours for it. Still, ignoring it? Yeah, that is when the Soul goes all out and puts you down for the count!! You can't even get off the couch and you have no idea what you have done. Yep, that is your Soul telling you to listen.
Now think back to when you were down and out with say, the flu. What was going on in your life at that time? Were you stressed? Needing to take some time off for yourself but, wasn't doing it?
I am telling you I truly believe your Soul does this FOR you not to you. There is a difference. Your Soul which is just an extension of the Universe, or God. (Whatever you prefer) We all are from the same Higher power. We may call it different things but, it is all the same. We are all the same!
Just like the Universe it only wants the best for us. We may not LIKE what it has to say or the direction we might be going but, TRUST your Soul it will put you on the path you need. Even if it's not the one you THINK you should be on.
Are you still a little confused about your Soul? Ok, you know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach? Most of us discovered this "gut feeling" when we were teens testing our limits. The time you went to that party and your gut kept telling you to leave so you did and later found out the cops showed up and arrested people? Yeah!!! That is your Soul talking to you. You can't explain it but, you just "know"!!!
That is your Soul talking to you and when you don't listen and get into trouble and you always say "I should of listened to my gut" Right?
The best way to get in touch with your Soul is to stop and listen. Just be still. This is so hard for some of us. We are always on the run. Taking the time to listen to your Soul will teach you so much about yourself and about your purpose. That is why we are here. We have a purpose and we have to full fill it!! We won't be happy until that purpose is meet.
Sit quietly.... say nothing and just let your Soul speak to you. Sometimes it's a voice. Sometimes your Soul brings people into your life that you need at a certain time. Praying about it will help bring you closer to your purpose. It will help you get closer to your Higher power also.
Be patience grasshopper. Be still. 5 minutes in the morning.
Start with that.
Much love and great success to you all
