When it comes to living life, we spend almost 100% of our time living as an avatar. We have an ego, a personality, a history, preferences, dislikes, beliefs, opinions, cultural viewpoints, and experiences. These ingredients comprise our ‘person’ and our worldly sense of self. But beneath all of these human ingredients lies one which is the foundation of all of them. Without this ingredient, this avatar would not exist. This ingredient is the soul.
The soul is timeless, eternal, and infinitely wise. Our “intuition” is really just our soul whispering into the ear of our person. You soul is not separate from you, but it will feel separate if you live life operating only from a personal or egoic level of consciousness. Since the soul is the fountainhead of wisdom of guidance, it is always trying to communicate with us, especially in times where we are experiencing great suffering.
Here are 5 encouraging things your soul wants you to know:
1) You are meant to feel deeply
You are meant to REALLY feel. Don’t hold back your tears, and don’t think it is wimpy, soft, or overly sensitive to expressive yourself.
It is healthy to feel deeply and to give yourself permission to experience the richness of human emotion. Feel love. Feel sadness.
Don’t walk in between as you daydream, really take the time to amerce yourself in the moment. This is what life is all about.
2) You are here to experience life
You are here to experience the fullness of life. The ups and downs. When all is said and done, you won’t care about your bank account, your material possessions, or the empty house you leave behind. All you will care about is whether or not you took the time to appreciate the miracle of life. You are alive.
Nobody knows why the universe exists, how it got here, or why consciousness exists, but here you are as a product of this grand mystery. Have fun. Live life. It’s too short of a journey to not appreciate the experiences, relationships, and memories you have here.
3) You are divine and non-physical
You are not the body you live in. You are ultimately that which is aware of the body and the mind.
You are ultimately the canvas on which the ego is painted, and when you die you shed your “self”. You are eternal, spaceless, timeless, and immaterial. You are a spiritual being pretending to be human for a little while.
Whoever told you that you are a human being was lying to you. You live in a human body, but you are not human. Never forget this. A great deal of suffering can be prevented by allowing yourself to connect with your own divinity.
4) Death is an illusion
You never die. How can you die when there is no such thing as death? There is only transition between dimensions. YOU, as an individuated fragment of consciousness, can never be destroyed. There is nothing to fear, because there is nothing to lose. When your physical body dies, you become more of what you are, not less.
5) You are loved
You are infinitely loved by the Universe and that which lies beyond. You may not be able to feel it right now, but on the other side of physical reality lies a host of spiritual family members and friends that are waiting to greet you.
You have Guides and Angels that are your care takers in this life and the next. The Creator loves you more than you could know, for it is The Creator that is ultimately experiencing Itself as an individual through you. You are more than just loved, you are Love itself.
In times where we feel discouraged, hopeless, meaningless, or insignificant, it is usually because we have forgotten what and who we truly are. We are just visitors passing through. If you wish to know through experience what your soul wants you to know, listen to your intuition. It is literally the navigation system your soul has installed into your avatar. Meditate, get still, and reconnect with the part of you that is already everything you could hope to be.
