So just what is our soul and why is it so important to feel connected with it?
By definition the soul is: the immaterial essence, animating principle, or actuating cause of an individual life. It's the spiritual principle embodied in human beings or the universe.
It's the 'pilot light'; the spark that is our essence. It's our Higher Self. It's our Source Energy.
Today's world is moving so fast! Our days start to blend together in one long 'To Do' list. Things can be so frenetic that we spend very little time getting in touch with who we are. We seem to spend less and less time on the things we are passionate about and that give us purpose, if we even know what they are?
Connecting to our soul empowers us! It fills us with divine unconditional love and a sense of purpose. Embracing this essence helps us live a more joyful, conscious, mindful and meaningful life. I love that aligning with this amazing energy also activates healing and that this support is ALWAYS available to us. Does it get any better than that?!
Connecting with our soul isn't difficult, and the rewards are immeasurable.
The Zen Lane
(excerpted from 365 Ways to Connect with Your Soul)
"Meditation isn’t always about being in a totally quiet, controlled environment or sitting in the lotus position. Sometimes it’s about listening to your inner voice, expressing your love and gratitude, and connecting to the divine within you. One of the places I can slip into alpha and really connect to my soul is…in the car! Yep, you read that right: in the car.
A number of years ago, I faced a very long daily commute in heavy traffic. Rush-hour-encompassed horn blowing, hand flailing, and hollered complaints at my fellow drivers. Prying my fingers off the steering wheel had become a daily habit!
Once I realized how much time (and energy) was being frittered away while on the road, however, I made a conscious decision to move into the “Zen Lane.” I began using my commuting time to center myself and do my “I AM” affirmations. I talked to the Divine and shared my thankfulness. I smiled. If someone cut in front of me, I wished them a safe journey. Delays? No problem – more time to get my thankfulness on!
It’s been years since I made these changes, and they still have an amazing impact not only on my own life but also on the lives of my passengers. Last week, my daughter and I pulled up to a drive-thru line behind an open Jeep with several very young children in the front and back seats. In the past, my first reaction would have been to start a rant about bad parenting and children being protected and safe. Instead, I got very quiet, and after a moment my daughter turned to me and said, “I’m sending positive energy to that Jeep to protect them on their journey”…exactly what I had been doing!
These days, instead of grumbling about traffic or a rush-hour commute, I always cherish my time in the Zen Lane. How amazing is it that something that I once dreaded has become one of the best parts of my day!"
