It’s a noisy world out there though. How do you know you’re not listening to your soul?
Do you feel a little off?
Something troubling you and you can’t quite pinpoint it?
Do you have an uncomfortable feeing in the pit of your stomach?
Frustrated? Trouble focusing?
All of these are signs you are not listening to your own guidance system. They are clues to SLOW DOWN, get quiet and get real with yourself. First though, we have to NOTICE that we’re feeling off. We need to become AWARE there is something in our body seeking attention.
Noticing what happens to be is the first step in hearing the whispers of your soul. Just notice your surroundings. Notice what mind chatter you are telling yourself. Notice where you feel frustrated in life. Notice if there’s a spot in your body pinging for your attention. Noticing what is means to become AWARE. It’s the opposite of numbing ourselves so we don’t feel. Instead of pushing down feelings, emotions, or ignoring situations that may get us off kilter, we allow what is. We notice. That’s it. No judgement. Only awareness of what is.
We are constantly bombarded with outside messages, stress, life demands and more. Often it’s difficult to know if something is “off” let alone hear our soul speak to us. For me, noticing usually sends me straight to the couch or a walk on the beach. This is my BE STILL time I write about in More Than Enough: Discover Your Limitless Potential and Live Your Bravest Dream.
Recently, I was personally experiencing that “off” feeling I am describing above. I was confused and couldn’t concentrate on my work at hand. In the past, I would push through. Or I would find something, anything, to numb the uncomfortable feeling. Doing what I do now for a living, it didn’t take long for me to realize my body was pinging for my attention. I immediately took some quiet time to pray and mediate on what was happening. I didn’t get up from the couch until I felt better! I needed to hear my soul whisper to me that something wasn’t sitting right in my heart and during that quiet time I was given the next steps to correct it.
As we slow down and make a concerted effort each day to BE STILL, we can begin to hear those whispers of the soul. We become AWARE of our language and surroundings, maybe for the first time. We begin to even NOTICE possibly the drama that we contribute in our lives.
I invite you to welcome that stillness into your daily life. The time you take for NOTICING and AWARENESS allows your soul to whisper to you. You may experience…
- Release from old programs, blocked emotions, layers of patterns and agendas that held you back in the past
- Renewed clarity in projects and life direction
- Increased overall confidence
- Expanded connection to God
What is your soul yearning to whisper in your ear? I invite you and give you full permission to cuddle up on the couch with a cup of tea and take that quiet time to honor yourself. And, after you do and if you so feel led to share, shoot me an email and let me know what your soul whispered to you. I would be honored to share the experience with you!
