Have you ever embarked on a soul journey? A journey that has completely cracked you open and shifted the course of your life?
I have been on this journey these last few years and it has taken me to different depths of myself, meeting my ego every step of the way.
Trying to surrender but controlling the outcome.
Feeling my emotions but resisting at the same time.
It's definitely been a process of letting go and stepping more and more into my truth.
What is the difference between your ego and your soul?
Your ego is that part of you that likes to control. It is the voice in your head and the chatter that you hear all day long. Its driving force is fear and it will do everything in its power to keep you "safe" from what it believes is harmful to you. It doesn't realize that it keeps you suffering and keeps you stuck. It so doesn't want you to feel pain that it binds you into fear so that you can't move forward and you stay within your comfort zone.
Your soul is that part of you that makes your heart beat, it's that life force within you that wants the best for you. You hear your soul in-between the ego when you find peace, that split moment of quietness between the chatter. It is the whispers that you hear with the great ideas that come out of nowhere, that feeling of knowing that you could be doing something or the guidance you get, encouraging you on your journey. Its guidance system is our emotions, it's the vibration we feel on a daily basis that guides us towards our best path forward.
As I embarked on this journey, I realized how powerful my ego was. Fear guided me every step of the way and I listened. Its voice was so much louder than the whispers of my soul and the doubts just gave it so much strength.
It truly was a 3 step forward, 5 step back kinda dance!
My intention behind it was to strengthen my soul and my intuition, to really get connected to that part of myself and let it rise within me and lead me forward.
I wanted to flow with life rather than struggling through it!
And as I took the time to tune into my heart and listen to how my soul communicated with me..
It awakened the feminine part of myself that loves to dance, flow, nurture and create!
It unleashed a part of me that wants to be seen and heard!
It healed parts of me that kept me playing small!
As I grow this part of myself, I am realizing more and more how it is so powerful and so important to take the time with your soul and build that relationship within.
Ask yourself questions:
Is my ego leading my life or my soul? (In other words, am I letting fear control or love?)
If I were to admit to myself and the world what my soul longs for right now, what would it be?
Are you afraid of initiating the changes that your inner voice is asking you to make? Why?
Be very honest with yourself.
Without this relationship, we are always living in our heads, completely limited to what the outside world thinks, never connecting to our bodies, our life force, our emotions. WE MISS THE TRUE BEAUTY OF BEING HUMAN!
HERE IS YOUR SOUL MISSION:
Take a nice deep breath in and set your intention. (ie. I want to connect to my soul and hear how it communicates with me) And NOW LISTEN. Start noticing the different ways your soul is guiding you towards your intention. Don’t doubt it or think it’s a coincidence, believe in your inner wisdom and follow the guidance. Let yourself be led from your heart rather than your head.
This soul journey has changed my life and I hope to inspire you to meet your own soul and to start developing a relationship with your truth and your authentic self.
Your body is always talking to you, take the time to listen!
