Today’s Miracle Moment is about Living from the Soul…
In Your Year of Miracles program, we teach that there are Five Foundations for Living in the Miracle Zone. When you live in the Miracle Zone, you’re in the “flow,” and you experience wonderful synchronicities and miracles in your life. Today we’re talking about the second foundation, which is… Live from the Soul. Living from the soul means living aligned with your highest truth and honoring your inner guidance. When you live from the soul, you look inside yourself instead of outside yourself for the answers.
The bottom line is—the soul knows.
The soul is made of the entire cosmos packed into the core of our body. We call it the Soulful Self or the Essential Self, and it’s that place of deep, true inner knowing.
It’s the part of you that’s always known, even when the mind is questioning and creating stories. What’s happening in the still waters beneath the mind is that the Soulful Self is offering up this knowing. All we have to do is train the mind to listen to this deep core truth.
In all my (Sue’s) travels around the world teaching hundreds of thousands of people, I’ve never heard anyone say, “I had this inner knowing and I went with it, and boy, do I regret it.” What I have heard hundreds of times is, “I had a deep inner knowing and I didn’t act on it, and boy, do I regret it!”
Clearly, the smart thing to do with your mind is to teach it to listen to this deep inner knowing. Your mind and soul need to become so bonded that they could complete each other’s sentences–they are so bonded that you’re operating as the soul. We start by just listening to this deep knowing that we’ve been trained to ignore and override.
Think of the things that have worked out the best for you. Was it because you followed something that you had a knowing about? It may not have even made sense, but you knew that was the path to take.
Here’s an exercise to help you build that muscle of living from your soul:
Right now, disempower yourself by throwing your energy off of yourself and directing it onto a person who pushes your buttons or to something else that distracts you. Or you can simply practice throwing (directing) your energy onto the computer screen as if you’re disempowering yourself. Discredit yourself as if your opinion doesn’t matter. Notice how that feels in your body—probably not good. Now just claim your energy back, pulling all of your energy back onto yourself.
We have a tendency to splat and disperse our energy and then live from that place of dispersed energy. Notice how you feel in your body when you call that energy back for yourself. It feels different—it feels robust, it feels abundant.
Here’s what to remember: When you make a decision that you’re unsure about, you get to make another decision. And, if you go down that road and don’t like that decision, you can make another one.
You keep doing this until you train your mind to follow your Soulful Self that always steers you in the right direction.
This practice will help you to live from the soul (and in the Miracle Zone) more and more.
