Since the beginning of the year, I have been really taking the time to tune into all that is around me, inside me and that which is waiting to come forth.
What has been truly fascinating to me though, is how disciplined and on task I have been while also going with the flow and just simply allowing my soul to speak to me in other ways.
It all started on December 31st when I did my releasing ceremony. (getting rid of what does not serve me) meaning thoughts, habits, patterns, beliefs and of course even old and worn out things.
This is usually done through meditation or visualization and many times writing as well. But always with some sort of intention and desired result.
I used to think that the releasing was the hardest part-but really the hardest part is the allowing the good to come in next, creating the space in your life for something new and wonderful to take its place.
I used to think that intention was everything, that if you saw it in your mind’s eye it would appear,-sort of like how that movie The Secret would have you believe. Oh just pray hard and it will happen, or wish it into being and it will appear before your very eyes.
I know that is not the case, and I made that known back in 2007 when I was interviewed for a local magazine. I know that it takes hard work for the things that you WANT to happen to happen. I know it takes hard work to keep the things away that you DON”T WANT to have happen in order to make room for what you do.
The secret is not really a secret anymore, and since then there have been countless new programs, books, classes, and tools out there that try and show us the way, and many all very good in their own way. (pun intended)
But in my experience it all comes back to us not only FINDING OUR OWN WAY-BUT REALLY KNOWING THE WAY DEEP DOWN INSIDE, that when given the proper tools, instruction and time to work on ourselves, and be with ourselves, that we FIND OUR OWN WAY ( I am hearing Stevie Nicks) singing “You can go your own way” and yet I feel it is a play on words saying “Sure you can go your own way-but how does that make you feel? Are you tired? Are you scared? Are you happy? Do you feel free? Hows it working for you?
Going your own way takes a lot of effort, standing up for what you believe and know is right does too, breaking free from the habits, patterns and beliefs that keep you stuck or make you feel helpless is just a distraction for you to not go you own way. (Beware of the distractions they will get you every time)
I’m not saying to sell your house and move to the country and be a recluse for the rest of your life, I’m not saying to walk into work some day and tell the boss that you quit, and I’m certainly not saying to go up to your partner of 20 years and say we’re through.
What I am saying is that as you FIND YOUR OWN WAY, you integrate that into who you are and what you do, as you KNOW YOUR OWN WAY, all else changes around you, you are born anew, and you are who you have always wanted to be and knew deep down inside.
I believe that not only comes from following your heart, but listening to your souls promptings. The SOUL KNOWS. But how often do we find time to listen to our soul?
A couple of months ago during meditation I was told the following:
“The Seat of the Soul is the Seed of the Soul which rests and takes root in the heart. This is where the answers come for your life’s purpose hence your soul’s purpose. The seed is life itself but you give birth to it.”
Little did I know how much of a hold that message was going to have on me and how I was going to bring that into expression. Or maybe I should say birth that into expression.
That message was indeed my Soul’s Promptings to create the
Sanctuary of the Soul-
A place where we explore some of our deepest longing questions, a place where we not only give birth to our own seeds but nurture them so they take root.
To understand that for true peace, love, happiness, and heart centered living to take hold, we need to pay attention to the promptings of the soul, which resides in the heart center.
I invite you to awaken your heart center and seed your soul’s promptings in our Soul Sanctuary.
