23 Jan Paying Attention to Your Soul and Spirit
Your soul is a liar. Surprised? I know it’s sad. We love to believe that our soul is pure. But energetically speaking, it’s the part of us that has free will to choose its beliefs. At times, it can be out of alignment with divine energy. If we came to earth as pure spirit, we would experience everything that happens to us as acceptable because we would always be seated in pure divine acceptance of what is. If someone abused us, we would say, “That’s okay. I understand why you did that.” If someone hurt our children, we would say, “It’s okay. I know why this is happening.” But that is not okay. We have to learn boundaries and preferences in our time on earth. We must strive to remember our inherent worth and value. In our time on earth, we seek to merge our soul’s beliefs with our spirit’s beliefs. Our soul is the thicker part of us that can hold lessons and learn boundaries. It can learn right from wrong, although sometimes it may believe in falsehoods.
When we’re young, we trust our parents to teach us the truth. But sometimes, our parents can be confused, too, and they pass on bad information to us. You see, our soul is like a bunch of computer programs. Some of these programs may be operating on spirit code, and some programs may be operating with a virus. With a virus, you are not functioning as ordained by spirit but are instead running a belief system not anchored in divine alignment. Our goal is to align our soul with our spirit, to get ourselves united with the spiritual truths. The way to do this is to strive to become more conscious. Unearth yourself. Unpack all your emotional baggage. Read books, take classes, make friends who help you understand yourself. Hire a therapist. Work with a talented energy healer. Identify and uproot the beliefs operating in your soul that don’t align with the spiritual truths that assert: I am good, I am powerful, I am enough, I am worthy, I am deserving, and I am lovable.

Meanwhile, your spirit is always connected to the truth. I view this as the higher-self part of you that walks with the divine. It’s that all-knowing, all-loving part of you that has your best interest and highest good at heart all the time. It’s the you that is pure consciousness, that remembers your divine blueprint and plan for your life. It’s the piece of you that is always ushering you toward growth and learning. Your spirit is like the unconditionally loving parent whispering to your heart and sometimes communicating messages to you through your body. For example, is your stomach “off” for seemingly no physical reason? That could be your spirit trying to let you know that there is something emotional or situational that you are having a hard time “digesting.” Do you get migraines that don’t seem to be related to an external trigger? This could be your spirit’s way of pointing out that you are feeling helpless around something in your life. Do you feel something compelling you to do something new or to change your life for the better? That’s your spirit. It takes some practice to learn to listen to and communicate with our spirit. It also requires trust and dedicated time.
Want to align more with your spirit at this very moment? Here’s how:
- Set the intention. Hold the sincere desire in your heart and either say it out loud or write it down: I wish to align with my spirit.
- Learn a process of meditation that works for you and one that allows you time to listen and receive information.
- In meditation, ask your spirit to come forward and show you what you need to know or feel.
- Sit quietly and pay attention to what immediately comes in. It may be a feeling, knowing, or thought that you haven’t had before.
- Thank your spirit.
- Repeat this often.
By communicating with our spirit, we learn its preferred language. For some, perhaps it’s mostly messages that come in through physical body sensations or emotions. For others, it could be images that appear in the mind’s eye, like snapshots. It can also be an auditory sensation where you hear a kind, loving voice in your head or see words in your headlight up like billboards. Our spirit is creative in the ways it communicates.
