Awakening to One’s Soul!

Lately the word Soul seems to be popping up often no matter what I am reading or listening to. Life has a way of showing us exactly what it is that we need. And that brings me to wanting to explore what my Soul is trying to tell me.

I sense that there may be a little excavating that will need to happen to get me there. It’s time that I get serious and up to speed with my Soul.

I know that I’m not just this physical body that I inhabit. The greatest part of who I am cannot be seen. It is what I call my Soul, and now it wants me to wake me up even more so I can fully live my life as it was intended.

I have been very good at resisting and procrastinating about living my life in a more conscious and fully awakened way. I know that I have avoided meeting head-on with my Soul. You could probably say terrified actually, but of what? I don’t even know. I felt like I was escaping and even turning a blind-eye to my Soul even being there. I pretended that I didn’t know why I was feeling a certain way, when I pretty much knew what I was ignoring. It was way easier playing the role of a victim than to have the courage to admit to myself what was really going on.

Why is it on our journey that we sometimes lose our way or stop listening to that voice that is within us? Maybe we are not lost after all and maybe that voice has simply gotten blurred out by all the noise in our lives. Are we afraid of fully embodying the true essence of our Soul? Are we afraid of living our life to the fullest? Why do we sometimes or always choose to live our life half-asleep instead of fully awake? Why do we sometimes feel more awake than other times?

I feel that I have let my Soul down in some ways. I feel that I have not being living my life to the fullest. Life is such a beautiful gift. Why does it take us so long to fully recognize that?

I believe that this can change once a person is willing to do the work that is needed. I feel ready to go there and do just that, so that one day I may be able to re-phrase that sentence to “I have been responsible and grateful for the life I was given. I have embraced and lived my life to the fullest”.

I don’t quite know what it all means to live life to the fullest but I am open to finding out. I also don’t quite know how one gets in touch with one’s Soul. It seems like I will be finding out one step at a time.

I see my Soul as an inner light, my Higher Self that is filled with wisdom that is waiting to guide me every step of the way on my journey. There’s no doubt that it has helped me get this far in life, and now I am open to seeing where it takes me on this next part of my journey as I commit more fully to living the life that I was given.

Awakening to my SoulI have been blessed with more than I could ever wish for in my life. But, it feels like something is missing. That something that is missing is not in the form of accumulating more from the material world, but instead what is missing is that deeper inner connection to my Soul. It feels like a deep sadness buried inside of me, an emptiness. I recognize that it comes from not being fully connected to my Soul. It’s not something that anyone else can give me, but it is something that I must go and explore on my own. Is it unrealistic to think that I can have this connection? I don’t believe that it’s unrealistic. I just need to be courageous, willing and able to go take a peek and see what I can find in the process. I may just be pleasantly surprised once I take that first step.

A few weeks into the new year I wrote how the energy of 2013 was already shifting so many things for me, and already I was sensing that I wanted that deeper connection with my soul. I must admit that the numerology year 7 that I’m in is proving to be extremely accurate so far. I could not have asked to have been given a more perfect year to bring me to what I am ready to go explore.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic of… Soul and what it means to you!

  1. Hey Suzanne! Well just the title of your post and I had to com visit you! 🙂 Soul is who I truly am. It is that dazzling star I talk about forever connected to The All That Is! Much luck on your journey dearest Suzanne!

  2. Suzanne- I hope that through exploring your artistic ventures this year it will get you more in touch with your soul. Take time with yourself and please don’t be hard on yourself- creative thoughts coming your way!
    Sue recently posted..Comment on From the Sketchbook by SueMy Profile

    • Thanks Sue. I have no doubt that my artistic venture is stirring up a thing or two, and I feel that it will help me connect with that part of me that I seek to explore more. xo

  3. What an exciting path you are walking, Suzanne! I think that emptiness you sense deep inside is one that we all have although we don’t always recognize it or know what to do with it. As for why we don’t live our lives to the fullest, I think many of us are very afraid of to live in such a way. I know I am sometimes, maybe because when there is so much to gain there is also so much to lose. Also, the power of a full life can be a little intimidating. I’m with you, though. I don’t want to stay stuck in that place!

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts Janice. You are right that many of us are afraid of living our lives in such a way. There’s so much to gain, yet we are afraid. Thank you for sharing. Blessings!

  4. Hello Suzanne! I made a cup of tea and sat down to soak up this post. I think that you are exactly where you need to be at this moment. You have given your heart and soul into raising your children and caring for everyone else’s needs. It’s your turn now to breathe deeply and let yourself receive. Your soul is full of so much light. Fill yourself up with ease, simplicity, and creative expression. Be gentle with yourself knowing it’s all here now.

    • Kathy Anne, thank you so much for your beautiful words. I feel myself sinking into your words and being able to allow myself to breathe deeply and let myself receive right now. I love yours words ‘fill yourself up with ease, simplicity and creative expression’. That’s the direction I sense myself going. Thank you for your kindness. Blessings! xo

    Good morning my fellow seeker! I love your bravery in your posting of what, in my thinking, is what our whole human journey is about! Yay! It is such an amazing journey finding our way back to our Soul (our mothership), and no matter where on that path we are, we ARE indeed exactly where we need to be, as Kathy Anne said:) When I’m frustrated with myself and berating how I seem to be so late to the party, I remember this and it helps me to love this very moment NOW.

    Just another thought I have is that the creative journey IS a spiritual journey back to one’s soul! I believe that we are all creative beings, no matter what the form of expression:))
    It’s wonderful to be sharing the journey with you Suzanne!

    • Barbara, I feel like we could sit and have a long chat one day. Loved your comments also. I look forward to my creative journey more knowing it is a spiritual journey back to one’s soul. The discoveries along the way shall be interesting no doubt.
      Blessings! xo

  6. I’ve never thought of connecting with my soul because I’ve never felt disconnected. I am going to have to think about this for a while. Definitely something worth considering. If one is disconnected from one’s soul, then one would be a more primitive being. Thank you, maybe. : ) We’ll see how much time this takes me to get through this. Thanks for the post.
    Sheila Skillingstead recently posted..Protecting your coreMy Profile

    • In reading your comment Sheila, I realize that it probably does not feel a complete disconnection, but instead I could compare it to a space that needs to be explored. Loved having you here. Thank you! xo

  7. Hmmm… I wonder what you plan to do to connect better with your soul, Suzanne.

  8. I’m so excited for you Suzanne and the journey you are on. It is my belief that you are never truly disconnected from your higher expanded Soul Self, although people are in various stages of remembering their divinity. But it is always, always, always, possible to hold more your divinity within your body, within your heart, within your day, within your life – this is what enlightenment is all about.
    Deborah Weber recently posted..Handy MapMy Profile

    • Lovely explanation Deborah. I appreciate your wisdom about this topic. Your words resonate very much with me and how it is always possible to hold more divinity within ourselves and our life.
      Blessings! xo

    Suzanne, I loved reading this very real post and I think you will be surprised to find that we are not alone on this journey. I think that for a long time we have forgotten or ignored the longing of our souls and what really makes us happy. And I really think our definition of what real happiness has becomes skewed. That makes us feel disconnected from ourselves. You are not alone. I know how this feels. We will figure it out. We will become the most soulful women we know in 2013!

    • Karen, that feels so right when I read your words ‘for a long time we have forgotten or ignored the longing of our souls and what really makes us happy’. That sounds so right to me. Let me know if you get this figured out before I do. 😉
      Lovely comment. xo

  10. I’m glad you’re facing what we all need to confront, Suzanne, the bitter truth that we all do our best to ignore the soul’s call. In the end, have to face it. We all have our attention caught in some way that is individual to each of us; for you it was your son’s autism. Now you are on that important road. We’re scared because it definitely changes everything, and we begin to distance ourselves from ordinary life. Its a slow but definite process. And we lose the friends and family that were once dear, simply because they don’t see life as we are beginning to do. You are at a point when your are bracing yourself for what is ahead. The lessons aren’t easy and full of sweetness and light. But they are magnificent. I’m glad you’re here, Suzanne. Welcome to a beautiful new dimension of experience!
    Yaz recently posted..Roads Less TravelledMy Profile

    • Hi Yaz, we know don’t we when there’s no where else to turn but to face what needs our attention. Loved your comments. It’s so true that my adult life has been ALL about raising my son who has autism. Somehow that is beginning to change, which is freeing me up in some ways so I can look at things I have ignored for too long. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts. Blessings! xo

  11. Food for thought…..Soul is Mother God, Father God, All that is, in every manifestation, without exception. When Soul calls us, we are being asked to be the hero of our journey….it is a magical ride. You’re following your bliss now! 🙂

  12. I’m so glad to hear you are opening to be all you are here to be! You are on a joyful path, my friend. It will be so awesome to watch where it leads you in your journey back to self/soul.

  13. Soul is intrinsically me but also intrinsically not me since my physical self doesn’t always protray my Soul self correctly. It’s an interesting journey to get them to match up. 😀

    • Love your explanation Arwen. It makes a lot of sense doesn’t it. Our Soul holds the true picture of who we truly are. The rest is somewhere of our being is back there trying to catch up most of the time.

  14. I thought I added you to my google reader, but it’s done now! I would have been sorry to have missed this post that speaks volume to me! I can truly relate; I think it makes us soul sisters, and that’s a beautiful thought. 🙂
