When we connect with our soul and start to get “directives” or guidance from our soul it can be very difficult to live and make choices from our soul. This is because the soul is the opposite to the ego/mind. The directives from soul go against everything we have grown up to believe in terms of how we should live our lives. This makes it very confusing to know when to follow our soul guidance as we can constantly feel like we are doing the “wrong thing” by following our soul.
To evolve into the 5th dimension we must embody our soul. This means we can’t just connect with our soul and feel all lovely and peaceful and then go about our lives making the same 3rd dimensional fear based choices. It has to change from the inside out by connecting with soul, listening to the guidance and then taking action. By taking action from soul the soul then becomes a part of the human experience, not just some distant connection and this is how we embody (or become) our soul in our physical existence. Therefore, it gets easier the more your actions are aligned with soul, as you start to embody your soul more and more. Then the soul mind easily overrides the natural fear based instincts as your soul is closer to your everyday life.
Taking the first steps in listening to the soul mind can be the most difficult and confusing stage because a soul directive usually goes against every 3rd dimensional instinct that you have grown used to. A few ways to know if you are making a choice based on soul:
When you have had some practice making soul based choices, you will also notice that you are guided through the action steps via your heart space and not your head. This feels very different in your body. When your heart guides you there are no thoughts, no list to check off, no planning or organizing or scheduling. Instead an idea pops into your head and you action it straight away in perfect timing in the flow of your life. Things just work out in the flow.
The will of the universe, your life flow and your soul are all linked. If you are making decisions based on your fear based logical thinking mind, then you are not connected to any of these. You are operating amongst the 3rd dimensional world and therefore responding to what is going on around you – not what is going on within you according to your soul, flow and the will of the universe. So it will often feel like you have no power behind your choices, that they are hard work, even a struggle sometimes to get things done. But soul based choices come from within with the entire power of the universe behind them, so a path will be cleared so that you can take action according to the flow (timing), guided by your soul urges.
This way of living from soul is almost completely opposite to the way we are used to living from our minds in a 3rd dimensional world, so it is no wonder it can take some getting used to, not to mention lots of courage and faith (in yourself) to follow through with your deepest soul urges.
So if you are sick of the struggle and never feel like you have found the fulfillment you have been searching for, it might be time to go within and spend some quality time getting to know your soul so you can listen to your soul guidance and take action from this space.
The more action is taken from the space of soul in this world, the faster the world will change and we will all be able to live by the new “rules” of the 5th dimension anchoring this reality into the existence of all.
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.
