When you are in need of answers to important life questions, how can you hear your Soul’s calling? How do you build a pattern of feeling led and guided instead of lost and fumbling? How do you turn the “every once in a while serendipitous moment” into a regular everyday event?
Be Aware of your Higher Self
To hear your Soul’s calling is a matter of connecting to the Higher part of ourselves that is larger than the body; the part that is the Observer of the thoughts; the Experiencer of the emotions. This Higher part of ourselves is very subtle. It is Energy with Consciousness moving thorough the body, radiating outwards 3- 6ft or so.
In order to feel connected to this vast, subtle yet very powerful part of your Self, there must be conscious, active practice to develop Awareness. Developed Awareness leads to greater instances of serendipity. You know, the sensation you get when you “accidentally” walked into a store you weren’t intending on going into, but end up meeting someone who turns out to be an important connection?
My girlfriend calls them “God-moments”, and I feel she’s spot on, since our Higher Selves are deeply connected to the Creative Force that moves through all things. It’s a connecting force that unifies and makes us feel in-flow. Life feels magical when we are in that zone. So how do we get there? If we are talking about awareness, what are we supposed to be aware of?
You Are More than Body, Thought, Emotions…
First we must be aware of all the ways we over-identify with the body, the thoughts and the emotions, so we can stop doing so. Those things are not the real You, though we believe them to be. They are aspects of yourself, but are not the Truest part of you, which is your energy with consciousness or your Higher Soul.The body gets hungry, not the real You. The feelings fluctuate, but the Real You does not. The thoughts change but the Real You is the thinker and thinks the thoughts but thoughts change as well. The Real You is not the thought.
So our awareness must start here. Disengagement or de-attachment from over-identification with the physical form and it’s needs and wants; from the mental perceptions we tend to define ourselves by; from the emotional fluctuations we get stressed over, allows us to feel more of the subtle energy that governs body, mind and emotions.
Remember our Soul’s calling is what we want to hear and feel, so shifting our attention from the body, mind and emotions is necessary to develop awareness of it’s whisperings. How do we dis-engage? Meditation is a key tool in cultivating greater Soul Connection. It allows the mind to become still and quiet so that we can hear.
Be Still and Listen
Of course in order to hear, we have to listen. In the silence and stillness while experiencing deep sensations of serenity, Your Higher Soul’s voice can be heard. It does not swim in the stresses we carry on with in daily life, rather it’s a reservoir for information, vitality and bliss.
Thus, hearing your Soul’s calling becomes a practice of turning off the external identification mode and moving into a space of deep stillness where your consciousness becomes engulfed by feelings of peace, as bliss floods your nervous system. In this stillness, the Higher Soul can be sensed by you, as you sit in It’s shower of love and sweetness.
The more regular you practice Awareness, through sitting in stillness, via meditation, inner reflection, or other mindfulness exercises, the more connected and present you’ll be to hear your Higher Soul’s calling.
How would you like it if life were one serendipitous event after another, where worry and stress are unnecessary because you have a quiet still voice guiding you? How would you like to reside in a place of confidence, sensing that your Higher Self carries you from one experience to another with ease and grace?
Such can be your experience, with the deep listening practice I just described. If you sense a need for some intuitive guidance and more tools to put to use, I can be seen at Paradise Found the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month, or book a private session in my office on State Street or via Skype. Energy-healing and intuitive readings are not limited by physicality, because everything is energy, but you already knew that! To your success and happiness! Lani
