My friend Carl Bozeman (@CarlBozeman on Twitter) asked me a couple of questions that I thought you might like to hear the answer to them:
What is our “soul,” how do you discover it and how do you integrate it with the human experience?
The Soul is the spiritual essence within your physical form. It is eternal, unlimited, and connected to Infinite Intelligence. It knows who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. The Greek origin for the word psychic means ‘of the soul,’ which is exactly what you want—information from your spiritual essence. Soul is the perfect expression of the Divine essence of God, the eternal aspect of you, and your Soul knows that while you are here making a HOME (heaven on mother earth), it is on a chosen mission.
The great philosopher, Plato believed that the Soul of man was eternal, pre-existent, and wholly spiritual.
Many who believe in reincarnation believe that our life not only purifies the soul, but the purification comes through opportunities to learn if the Soul is willing. Unfortunately, many people let the challenges of life bring them down rather than embracing them as the curriculum they were intended to be. They ignore these lessons for personal growth and walk through the world wounded, sending out lower vibrations. Wounds and unhealed trauma can take you away from your path of Destiny if you fall into victim mentality.
The irony is that when these same wounds and disappointments are seen as sacred gifts and are integrated with acceptance, they will lead you directly to your Destiny. Learning to let your Soul guide you is what the Destiny Discovery is all about.
What kinds of things get in the way of our connection to “soul” and, as you refer to it, our “soul’s purpose?
I would love to tell you that the path to Destiny is a straight shot with very few detours or times of anxiousness, but that would not be giving you the information you need to succeed. In the book, I discuss eight “deadly D’s to watch out for. Let’s start at one of the most common, that being “detours.” One way to tell if you are blocking your Divine Destiny is when you keep running into experiences that hurt a bit too much and then call it fate. You may even hear yourself saying “this always happens to me.”
Well, the reason it keeps happening is that you have not yet mastered the lesson that life is offering to you. When we fail to listen to our inner guidance, then we often miss important signposts that will lead us more easily and quickly to the Destiny that is waiting for us. As long as you are awake and aware of synchronicities, you will see invitations to take new roads that lead to people and opportunities that can guide you. Luckily, there are physical and symbolic signs all around. For example, when I was living in Atlanta, Georgia and was thinking of moving to Texas, I started to hear dozens of Texas related ‘signs’ such as license plates, conversations, songs, etc.
I did make the move, as it was part of my Destiny to be Texan, but, of course, I had to choose it. When you are oblivious to the signs around you it’s a bit more painful. And when you are unwilling to see what your Soul is trying to show you, you fall back into “default mode” which looks like the same experiences over and over again.
