Last week I gave a talk about Soul Writing. During this talk I explained that when connecting with soul and writing from soul it is often our guides/angels who speak the voice of our soul. I call these beings our Soul Group. I believe that they are closely connected with our soul and not beings that are separate or outside of us. While preparing material for this talk I decided to ask my Soul about the Soul Group.
Below is what came through in my writing.
What is our soul group?
Your soul group is your own unique connection to source
How does it work?
Your human form has many limitations. You need to forget the beauty and lightness of “home” so you can feel at peace on earth. Your time on earth can be difficult as you must endure much.
Your soul group are still connected to source (home) and are your link there, to help guide you and remember pieces of who you really are. Not all will be revealed in order for you to live out your human existence. But your soul group is your lifeline and your guiding force to make this life as smooth and as peaceful as possible.
How are the soul and soul group connected and how are they different?
They are very similar. Beings of light are soul energy - pure soul without the human heaviness. Your soul group has a collective soul and goal. Your soul is this. So your unique soul and the group you call soul group are one in the same. They share the same aspects of soul energy and come from source. They are aspects of source.
Does the soul have a voice and purpose?
The soul voice is your voice. You are the vehicle through which the soul speaks. It does not have a
voice otherwise. It is the presence of source. Collecting experiences through the human experience and speaking through the human form.
Does the soul group have more voice without human form because they have been human before?
Some yes. Some have not been human but they understand the human experience. It is just a different aspect and intent of source energy. Your soul group support the human form. Your soul is
the human form – exchanging energy through the human form.
Are the soul group “employed” by the soul to carry out the soul’s goals?
Not really. No one employs anyone else. It is the intent of source. It is a collective soul energy and intent. It is for the greater good. Much is playing out in all interactions and intentions. The soul has many connections – to other souls – to its soul group – to source. All are important for the human form and for soul.
Soul writing as I do it and as I teach it. Please explain this process?
You are essentially speaking with your essence. All parts of you supporting your human existence.
You ask for guidance and that is what you receive.
Recently I saw the animated movie “The Croods’ with my kids. I really enjoyed the movie but beyond the fun stuff there was a strong message. The theme I am talking about is fear.
The cavemen in the movie had a lot of things to fear everyday – there were creatures who wanted to eat them, or other creatures who wanted to fight them for food – every day it was a battle for survival in a harsh world. The Dad in this movie had a favourite saying “never not be afraid” in otherwords, fear everything, all the time!
The teenage daughter in the movie questions this fear. She asks “What kind of a life is this?” when they are stuck in a cave for days on end because they are afraid of what is outside. “What is the point of living?” she asks.
As the story unfolds they are forced out of their familiar home and life into a totally new world where hiding and living in fear no longer works. They have to start “thinking” and “acting” differently and being creative to respond to their surroundings, instead of just reacting from fear. The resistance in the Dad is huge, he does not want to change his ways - ways that have worked for a long time - to try unknown ways. They meet a "new guy" who they think is crazy, but his innovative new ways of thinking help them out of danger many, many times.
It reminds me how we still carry that primitive caveman fear around in us although we no longer have creatures hunting us and we don’t need that fear to survive anymore. It is hard to shake and live in this new world where the fear actually holds us back instead of saving us. The cavemen instinct of fear could potentially help us in a situation that could be harmful (such a avoiding oncoming traffic) but we have evolved so that we don't need it any more as a constant presence of protection. The caveman instinct keeps us small and safe - but as the girl in the movie says "What kind of life is this?". Taking risks (sensible risks of course) and chances to live an extra-ordinary life brings out that fear in all of us - it is ingrained from our earliest of histories.
As the title in the movie poster says "if they don't evolve, they'll be history". Is that what we are facing today as well - if we don't evolve in this changing world and leave our fear behind, then we won't thrive. Something to think about...
Sometimes we hear or feel guidance that we ignore or aren't sure about. I know I don't always follow my guidance straight away. I question it, try and work out why and what will happen. I take the difficult way around sometimes, learning or making choices the hard way reather than fearlessly following my guidance in the first place. So I asked my soul the questions:
How can we tell the difference between our soul guidance and our ego’s resistance or our fear leading us down a path? These voices or nudges all feel the same sometimes. How can we separate them and follow our soul guidance.
It comes down to trust. The ego does not trust the soul. The soul may lead you into situations that the ego doesn’t want, or lead you into situations that require change. The ego hates change. It would rather you stay small and safe then become big and vulnerable.
These intuitive nudges that you talk about all come from you, but from different parts of you. Understanding the different parts of you can be an important first step. Once you understand that you do have these different ‘bodies’ with different functions all helping you live a human life, then you can start to understand more fully what these bodies sound like and what they are all trying to do for you. (the bodies mentioned here are the Emotional, Mental, Ego, Higher Self bodies and Soul)
Sometimes it does seem like they are working against each other. But the more attention and awareness you give to your soul the easier it will be to hear the soul voice. If you are living purely from a human body existence (3D) then the ego and mind are what you will hear and follow the most. The intuition will come through from you soul (from your guides and angels) but you probably won’t consciously be tapping into it and realising you are following it.
Is there a way to feel or notice the difference between soul guidance and ego/fear guidance?
Yes, you can feel the peace of the soul guidance. When you consider the guidance and what it is suggesting to you, be still and notice how you feel. Does the prospect of doing what you are being guided to do feel scary but peaceful? Does it feel difficult but peaceful? There will be an underlying feeling of “it is all going to be OK’. When you tap into the ego/fear guidance you will probably feel peace at the idea of not going through with something. That is the ego feeling relief at not having to go through a change.
If you don’t feel ready for the change being suggested by the idea you have (guidance), then there may be some resistance in you - the ego which doesn’t want to or can’t be bothered with what has to change. The resistance to change can stop you. That is OK.
You can push through it if you want to, but also waiting until you feel more ready can be OK. Just ask for help and more guidance on how to get to that next step. What needs to be shifted or changed before you can fully be ready to take on that guidance and move in that direction. Usually there are baby steps involved. You just need to take one step at a time, so if the big picture feels too overwhelming and scary then don’t worry, just concentrate on the next step. Ask for guidance on that next step only.
I have spoken briefly in the past about the "new human" project I have been working on. I haven’t shared a lot because it is quite “out there” and I am still trying to understand it all. The Living with Soul Guidance work that I am also working on seems to go hand in hand with the New Human work. Once with are connected with our soul, living from our soul and creating our life from our soul, then we will be the New Human - the Embodied Soul - the Soul Human.
One thing I have noticed lately is how my brain/mind is behaving differently. The smallest tasks at home are difficult. It is like I forget how to do things sometimes. I will stand in the kitchen and try and remember which utensil I need to flip the pancakes, or cook an entirely different breakfast to the one my kids just asked me for. I have difficulty retaining any information, and I worry that I will make mistakes at work.
Much of my hospital research work involves patient care and I have come very close to making some huge mistakes or oversights that would comprise patient privacy or care. But the key here is “almost”. While there have been some close calls at work and in the kitchen, I have not burned the
house down or compromised my work. I am being protected (divinely perhaps) through this process.
What it feels like is happening is the brain and its functioning mind are now directly connected to source (via my soul). I will literally be “thinking from my heart/soul” in a short time. The transition is tricky though and although I want to just let go and surrender to this process, I am still plugged in to safety and practicality.
When connecting with this new way of thinking, it almost feels like intuition. The thoughts act quite like “knowing” without much logic or reason. I just get the thought and then the action follows.
The “monkey mind” is also diminishing. Whereas I would once have a million thought buzzing through my head exhausting me, the thoughts now feel concise and relevant, not just white noise.
Whereas once I would try and shut down my mind while meditating, now I welcome its involvement. It feels empowering and different – like the power of the mind is showing through - it is the mind of the soul - the soul voice.
In this "new human" way we will be able to manifest and create magnificence in our lives as our powerful higher-mind (or soul-mind) taps into our soul power and purpose and creates our lives. We can’t create without our minds, but whereas before using our lower-mind, our creating ability was very limited as we were only coming from a human viewpoint, we will have no limitations to our creative ability when we are coming directly from Source using our higer-mind.
There will be no limit as to what we can manifest!!
The new human is starting to emerge….
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
Thank you for your support of this work....
