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”

The Soul’s Influence

soul connection

For you I will proceed diligently
For you I will strive

You and I have connection
You and I have purpose

Our paths are one
Our paths are divided

Joined in physicality
Joined in transparency

Soul of my body
Body for my soul

Bound and dependent
Distinct and independent

For you I will reach higher
For you I will believe

Connection with Spiritual Connection

Spiritual connection

Spiritual connection surrounds all that we do. When we are doubtful of ourselves, spiritual connection is urging us to be supportive. Spiritual connection supports our actions, and we have to support them too.

When efforts seem wasted and quitting feels close, we must reach for the connection and let it support.

I’m writing wisdom poetry about faith. Here is a quote from the poem:

The opening to
Oneself is the
Opening to Spirit. Within oneself
Is the connection
Through the soul. For the soul
Yes the soul
Is Spirit derived. The soul
Carries energy that is
Spirit derived.

The opening to
Oneself is
Opening to Spirit. Opening to Spirit
Through self-inspection.
Finding the connection.
Finding the soul.

+ When you find your soul, you will be
open to Spirit.

And another quote from the poem:

The soul
Opens the living being
To spiritual energy.

The soul
Bridges the gap
Between beyond
And grounded.

Relaxation in soulful connection
Is natural and possible. Soulful connection
Brings relaxed being. Relaxed being is
Floating in thoughts of
Acceptance and connection. At
Connection is release from
Hurtful self-affliction. At
Connection is release
From criticism.
Relaxed being is floating in thoughts
While firmly attached to physicality.

The blood still flows.
The digestion continues on.
The nerves sense stimulation.
The breathing continues.
The body remains firmly established.

Connection is through physicality transcended
And thoughts receiving the body’s strength.

Connection is through thoughts a-soaring
Through flesh and blood aligning
And activation from soulful assistance.

And from the poem’s conclusion:

Connection to Spirit,
Sacred connection
Many paths and many offerings.
The connection has resonance
The connection uplifts the life.

Connection to Spirit,
Continuing connection
Many forms and many presentations.
The connection shares wonder
The connection inspires the life.

Natural death

Post 27-striving

This blog post is from Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey.

“Natural death, through illness or disease, body mis-function, or aging, causes people to struggle with sadness, anger, relief, confusion.” The process of living and dying is considered in the chapter “Concrete Living” in Oneself—Living.

My mother died from metastasized cancer when she was 66 years old. She had cancer of the sinuses that metastasized to her lungs. She was 55 when the sinus cancer was diagnosed. She underwent radical surgery to remove the cancerous growth, which left her disfigured and disabled. Her life was dramatically changed, yet she still had life. Her slow decline was difficult for her and for our family.

When she died, we struggled with sadness, anger, and confusion. There was no relief. No matter how much she suffered, we wanted her with us. The letting-go was fought. We fought to make her stay and we fought to not let her go. Our efforts made her leaving harder for her, and she tried to hang on when she needed to let go.

The dying process is one in which the person who is dying is affected by those around.  Children, siblings, partner, parents, friends, and even acquaintances cause pull in the wave that is taking the life-leaving-person out to sea. Death is like the sea and each person like a small living object on the shore living life and fighting the draw of the waves. Shelters can be built and the inevitable can be ignored, but the process moves on naturally and ever distressingly. Life, like death, flows and ebbs, bringing new circumstances and similar challenges.

The dying process ends one life and begins the after-life processing of the soul. The after-life processing of the soul connects the people who were left with the one who left. Through openness, desire, and intuition, the soulful essence of the one who left can be felt. The dying creates a different reality that can be a continuation of the relationship at the soulful level. Knowing this information does not lessen the pain of losing a loved one, but it can make the moving on easier.

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.”
