"My assignment is to connect with my soul and write about it, having a conversation with my soul. Sounds ridiculous, and impossible, but here goes...
I feel so conflicted and lost in my life. I am begging for your guidance, please tell me what you want me to do.
I sit and wait for a response...(crickets)"
Excerpt from Soul-iloquy: A Novel of Healing, Soul Connection & Passion.
Having a conversation with your soul might seem impossible and even a little crazy, but it is easier than you might think.
Start with grounding and centering, connecting with the earth and the center of your being. Breath deeply clearing your mind of all chatter and distraction. Envision a column of light at your center and flowing up through your feet and also through the top of your head. The light is usually brightest in the middle of your trunk, in the area of your solar plexus. This is where your soul lives. Connect with your soul, the deepest part of you, and allow yourself to feel it’s comforting, nurturing support.
Once you feel connected with your soul, sit down and either meditate or journal. This is a personal preference. Some people prefer to converse with the soul within their mind, allowing the messages to flow without thinking. Others find it easier to converse on paper with a journal, writing whatever comes into their awareness. Try both and see what works best for you.
Within this space of soul connection, talk about whatever is troubling you. Ask questions of your soul. Pay attention to whatever answers come immediately, without thinking. This could be a word or phrase, an image or vision, even a feeling or sensation.
Practice to find a method that you are most comfortable with, and also practice receiving answers from your soul. How does the soul respond? It may be different for each question or it may be consistently in the same form. The more you practice and familiarize yourself with how the answers come, the easier it will be to trust what comes to you.
What do "yes" and "no" feel like? If you ask a question, and then feel a contracting or uncomfortable feeling in your body, the answer is probably no. If you ask a question and feel warm, relaxed, light and expansive, your answer is likely positive.
How can you tell if the answer is from your soul or your mind? The more you practice, the easier it will be to tell the difference. One important point to note is that the soul is never negative. It may say no or give you an uncomfortable feeling, but it will not put you down, talk negatively to you, or guilt you. That is a sign that the mind or the ego are speaking. One suggestion is to allow the mind to speak and let out all of its fears and worries. Then once that has all cleared, take some time to quiet the mind, asking it to step aside, and reconnect with the soul to repeat your question.
It comes down to practice and trust. The more you practice, the more you will trust your responses. The more you practice and trust, the easier your conversations will flow, and your relationship with your soul will grow and strengthen.
Communicating with your soul will help you to make choices and decisions that are in alignment with your soul, your truth and your purpose. Isn't that what we are all striving for...to live a soul-connected life?
