Your soul is longing for connection

Each of us has a soul that was endowed when we were born. This soul of ours knows our true self and our abilities and gifts. Somehow, life takes us away from the soulful connection, and to regain it takes dedicated effort.

In the book Faith–A Wisdom Poem Sharing Spiritual Connection, we are guided to reconnect with Spirit through reconnection with our souls. The reconnection takes focus and awareness. Here is an excerpt from Faith about reconnecting with the soul:

Faith–A Wisdom Poem Sharing Spiritual Connection provides a path to soul reconnection and connection with Spirit. It is available here: 

The color of your soul

Each person has individualized likes and dislikes, personality traits, reactions, and habits. These individualized self-definitions are influenced by genetics, family influence, societal influence, and the times in which the person lives. Beyond these influences is the influence of the soul.

When a person is born, he or she is the recipient of a soul and this soul brings color—soul-color! The color of the soul is the starting point for a person’s individual character and personality.

What Are the Personality Characteristics of the Soul?

According to Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul, soul-color is a combination of four attributes: shade, hue, contrast, and coloration. Each of these attributes determines a part of a person’s personality, likes, dislikes, temperament, and family connections. When a baby receives the soul, all these attributes are given, and they are the person’s direction for life. As the baby grows, and depending on outside influences, the soul-color shines or is smudged.

What Is the Soul-Color Attribute Hue?

Hue is the attribute that sets attractions—attractions to certain activities, colors, shapes, knowledge, sounds, scents, textures, foods, etc.

“From the moment a person is born, distinct preferences are evident. A baby reacts to various stimuli in positive or negative ways, but adults are unaware that issues other than hunger, wetness, or discomfort are at play. As the baby ages and is able to communicate through movements and sounds, adults slowly grasp the interests and triggers that pull or repel the infant.” from the chapter “Soul-Color Attributes” in Awaiting Light.

>> Knowing which interests are innately fixed is a step towards knowing your soul-color attribute hue.

What Is the Soul-Color Attribute Contrast?

Contrast is the attribute that sets opposite-sided emotional reactions. Examples are joy-sorrow, warmth-indifference, and excitement-insensitivity. Contrast determines the passion that is felt as life is experienced and the conviction that is felt when opinions and thoughts are formulated. Some people feel their emotions in a large way, some feel their emotions in a reserved way, and some feel their emotions differently depending on circumstances. All of these ways are normal and are soul-endowed.

>> Recognizing depth of emotion innately felt is a step towards knowing your soul-color attribute contrast.

What Is the Soul-Color Attribute Shade?

Shade is the attribute that affects pace, temperature tolerance, circadian calibration (natural affinity for certain times in a day), and acceptance of boundaries. Pace determines the speed at which a person naturally lives, ranging from living without rush to living at an exuberant speed. Temperature tolerance is the coolness-warmth range that is determined by the location to which a person is born. Circadian calibration determines the time of day that is most comfortable to a person. Acceptance of boundaries refers to a person’s natural moral compass of knowing right and wrong.

>> Sensing your natural rhythm of movement, temperature, day or nighttime preference, and sense of right and wrong is a step towards knowing your soul-color attribute shade.

What Is the Soul-Color Attribute Coloration?

Coloration is the attribute that determines the soul-groupings for souls of similar colors. Coloration provides the possibility of group connections. It causes the feeling that you’ve known some people forever, when you’ve just met them.

>> Coloration is a group attribute. Being able to recognize group traits in your family and friends is a step towards knowing your soul-color attribute coloration.

Conclusion

Each soul is combination of soul-color attributes that are spiritually linked to one another. Each soul is unique, like a person’s fingerprints.

The more you can know and understand yourself, the more you can see your soul’s color and the more authentically you can live.

Soul Workshop

Soul note

Tomorrow I will be presenting the “Getting to Know Your Soul” workshop for the third time. I’m reviewing Awaiting Light–Understanding the Development of the Soul in preparation. Each time I read this book, I am amazed by the information.

Here are excerpts from the book that wow me  each time I read them:

“The soul leads the body towards survival, but the body is responsible for survival activities. The soul informs the body, but the body can ignore the subtle signals. The soul wants acceptance, compassion, and understanding, but the body can choose fault finding, laziness, and defeat. The soul hints at spiritual connection, but the body listens or not.

Body and soul, soul and body—intertwined and independent. One can want one thing and the other can want something else, but whatever choices are made affects the other.

Bound and dependent, distinct and independent—duality in influencing the actions of each individual. The body and soul are joined at birth when the first inhalation occurs…” – from the chapter “The Color of the Soul”

“The color of the soul, with its influence and potential influence, creates the basis for each person and awaits further connection throughout the person’s life. People are their souls embodied in a physical container.

The soul is tattooed on the countenance of each person, and awareness of this soul display is needed in order to understand what we are seeing when we look into the face of another.” – from the chapter “The Color of the Soul”

“Each person has a pace at which he or she lives. …Knowing and understanding one’s pace is helpful when determining the type of work one will do, the location in which one will live, and which acquaintances enrich one’s life. Pace is somewhat adjustable; however, living in harmony with natural pace is the key to creating a resonant and appropriate existence.” – from the subchapter “The Soul-Color Attribute–Shade”

“Each person has a defined sense of morality that is soul-endowed. ..The society in which one lives pushes against the natural moral-balance boundaries setting, especially when the society imposes a moral scale different from the person’s own.  The same for different settings in a family. The person with the most influence in a family usually sets the moral boundaries, and the other family members adjust or rebel…The moral-balance boundaries setting has effects on the body: on digestion, on breathing, on circulation, and on thinking…” – from the subchapter “The Soul-Color Attribute–Shade”

Coloration is the soul-color attribute that provides the possibility of group connection. It provides group characteristics that transcend physical characteristics. Soulful characteristics. Coloration includes group interests, like-minded vision, harmonious relationships, and natural comfort. Coloration also includes recognition: recognition of group membership…Similar coloration can be felt when meeting people for the first time. Natural attraction to people can be a sign of coloration matching. This sense of attraction is felt when meeting people who were once lovers, friends, or kin (in other incarnations). …Togetherness is vital for normal human development. Coloration assists the joining of people in units (families, friendships, etc.) so that togetherness can be achieved. Familiarity is not a fluke; familiarity is built into people connections.” – from the subchapter “The Soul-Color Attribute–Coloration”

“It is the soul-facade, not the soul, that presents one’s feelings to the world. It is the soul-facade, not the soul, that struggles with questions of spirituality and purpose. It is the soul-facade, not the soul, that encourages when self-mistrust sets in. It is the soul-facade, not the soul, that turns away from soulful influence. It is the soul-facade, not the soul, that is damaged by negative behaviors and rejection of healthful existence. But it is the soul that is damaged when negative behaviors and rejection of healthful existence lead to complete negation of soulful living.

The soul is the private sphere of a person; the soul-facade is the public interface. … The soul-facade is the window of the soul. “- from the chapter “Interface of the Soul with the Body”

Excavating my soul color

parachute From Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul, I learned that the soul has color which is bestowed at birth. The soul color has four attributes that determine our interests, our affinity for certain times of the day, seasons and temperatures, our emotional reactions, and our family connections, among others.

I’m currently writing a wisdom poem about faith, and in it the importance of knowing soul color is raised. By knowing one’s own soul color, a person can ascend towards spiritual connection through the power of the soul. Without knowing one’s soul color, the connection is difficult to create.

(A reminder about wisdom poetry: “A wisdom poem is a poem that is dictated directly from Spiritual Presence.” …from Unfolding.)

Today I excavated my soul color. I reviewed the explanations about soul color attributes in Awaiting Light, and then I dug deep to understand who I am, what are my real interests, what is my natural pace, and so on. I had to think back to my childhood and remember the things that drew my interest. I had to consider my true self and not the self that was molded by my parents and my society.

I considered the colors that appeal to me, shapes and metals too. I thought about activities that draw me, movements that energize me, and sounds that soothe or inspire me. I focused on scents that make me smile and on animals that make me feel friendly. I considered taste preferences and textures. I remembered moments that seemed soul-filled and people exchanges that felt fulfilling. I breathed deeply and felt the sense sensations that bring satisfaction and grounding.

After I made my long list of items that correspond to soul color attributes, I consulted with Spiritual Presence. A few things that felt natural were actually coping mechanisms from childhood so I took them off the list. Coping mechanisms can be deeply rooted, but they are not part of the soul.

Knowing my soul color can help me make choices and decisions that suit who I am—deep down in my soul.

What happens when life is lived elsely

Awaiting Light

elsely: 1. Not authentic  2. Not according to design

Each person receives a soul when born, and this soul dictates direction and clarity. As described in Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul:

“The soul determines personality, the types of things that draw our interest and attention, our pace in absorbing information and performing activities, our pull towards certain times of the day and seasons, our comfort with temperature and weather variations/frequencies, our moods and mood over-all, our intuition, and our drive to live. The soul affects health and well-being, and generally works to keep the body in balance.”

When we live soulfully, we feel our needs and direction and we live authentically. When we live according to someone else’s idea of how we should live or according to our misinterpretation of how we should live, we are living elsely.

Elsely leads to unsureness, illness, frustration, mediocrity, and regret. Living an untrue-to-oneself life affects one’s partner, children, friends, and associates. Living elsely creates a life that is manageable, but lacking. Living elsely creates a life that is half-full.

To know oneself is not easy. Unintentional negative influence by caregivers causes people to veer from their true path. Societal expectations cause people to question their ideas and actions.

By understanding one’s soulful being, life can be lived fully and with satisfaction. Reading the book Awaiting Light is a first step towards understanding the makeup of the soul and examining personal traits and desires. Awaiting Light is available through amazon.com and its global distributors.

“The path to understanding is through openness to wonder and willingness to imagine. This book is written so that all can know that their actions matter and that their personalities and sensitivities have reasons for being so. Having this information assists in raising children to be their real selves and encourages adults to understand their natural interests and societally created pursuits. Having this information leads to accepting each person as he or she is, which brings balance and elevation of all.”

People cycle in groups

Coloration

The book Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul explains the connection of people to their relatives, friends, and special acquaintances beyond the current life. Connections are built-in through the soul-color attribute Coloration.

“Coloration provides cyclical incarnation. Souls that are in the same group bind in varying combinations that cause them to have recognition from incarnation to incarnation. Coloration is just one attribute of each soul so that people with the same coloration can be very different, but the recognition of group membership can lead to pairing and connections time after time. Coloration determines the appearance of group member souls, but it does not guarantee harmony or comfort.

Groups contain souls that will join through marriage, friendship, extended family relations, and special relationship connections such as through work, community, and interests. Groups provide order to life because they influence choices and connections.

Life does not allow for members of groups to connect in each incarnation. Meetings don’t always occur, marriages don’t always happen, and different decisions lead to movement away from natural relationships. Life with group members is more satisfying, but not necessarily more relaxed. The other soul-color attributes can influence group functionality. Attraction to others not in one’s group can bring satisfaction because group membership is not the uppermost requirement for happiness with one’s life.

Similar coloration can be felt when meeting people for the first time. Natural attraction to people can be a sign of coloration matching. This sense of attraction is felt when meeting people who were once lovers, friends, or kin (in other incarnations). Other incarnations are not actually felt during the current life, but the sense of comfort or knowingness is.

Togetherness is vital for normal human development. Coloration assists the joining of people in units (families, friendships, etc.) so that togetherness can be achieved. Familiarity is not a fluke; familiarity is built into people connections.”

The soul-color attribute Shade and its Moral Boundaries setting

Shade-moral boundaries setting

The previous blog post explains the color attributes of the soul, one of which is Shade. Shade has several actions that determine the comfort a person feels in his or her surroundings. One of these actions is the sense of morality, the ability to naturally know right and wrong. Each person has a morality setting that guides. Here is an excerpt from Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul:

“The society in which one lives pushes against the natural moral-balance boundaries setting, especially when the society imposes a moral scale different from the person’s own.  The same for different settings in a family. The person with the most influence in a family usually sets the moral boundaries, and the other family members adjust or rebel.

When a society is repressive, the moral-balance boundaries settings for all who live in the society are affected. Even for those who support the repressive ways. People are forced to ignore their natural sense of moral conduct when the society is morally selfish, and they must themselves repress their knowingness about proper and moral behavior.

When a society is tolerant of nuances, moral-balance boundaries settings are also affected; and so, the boundaries are much more available for making personal decisions and for formulating opinions and actions. Societal morés do come into play, but they can be weighed with relatively equal weight to one’s own sense of right and wrong.

Sometimes people with repressive tendencies gain influence in a tolerant society. When a repressive energy takes hold, it affects the populace in three main ways: (1) for those who support the repression, it causes them to ignore their own sense of right and wrong; (2) for those who are unwilling or unable to oppose, it causes them to modify their sense of right and wrong; and (3) for those whose personal sense of right and wrong is strong, it causes them to oppose the repression.

A society that is tolerant is a society that has connection. Connection to its inhabitants. Connection to people-boundaries of moral balance.  Connection to soul.

The moral-balance boundaries setting has effects on the body: on digestion, on breathing, on circulation, and on thinking. When people are able to live by their morality boundaries, they are able to live in balance with themselves. They can evaluate and act based on personal judgment.”
