Each time our soul answers and we listen is a Birthday. Just like when we are born onto this earth, into this world, the learning process begins. We take baby steps, which leads us to child steps, then teen steps…young adult & mature seasoned steps.
In 2014, I ventured into learning how to become a Life Coach. As there are various types of Life Coaching, I decided to specialize in Transformational Life Coaching, with the mantra “Self-Discovery is Beautiful and so are You”. Later, during meditation, it came to me that nothing is lost in Spirit and the “Self-Discovery” metamorphosed into “Self-Recovery is Beautiful and so are You”. Being an Energy Gal, I know that everything is Energy – Thermodynamics, Quantum Physics, Disciplines and Teachings. Energy is the capacity to do the work…the ability to change things. Energy cannot be created or destroyed…it can be transformed. We are ENERGY, we can transform and be transformed.
The first thing we learned was that the answer our client seeks is within themselves. However, the willingness to journey through the five elements must first be reached before the client is actually ready to begin the path. These elements are:
1. Awareness of the need for change
2. Willingness to learn how to make the change
3. Taking responsibility to make the change
4. Believing the change is possible
5. Setting intentions and taking action for the change.
This morning I was listening and Singing with Maysa, “When the Soul Answers”. I love this song. In part she sings, “when Your soul, You better listen”. It came to me…when I say, it came to me…I’m saying these things come from Spirit and I trust it; I know it didn’t come from the personality of me. Our soul answers us, and again…the answer is within. I thought about that. When our soul answers, that means we asked our soul a question. She continues with, “Listen to the subtle whispers and those butterflies”. When our soul answers, she/he shares with us which way to go. What do to extrinsically and intrinsically. We get those subtle whispers and butterflies…that’s our soul letting us know what to do on the outside. What path to take. Our soul also answers with our bodies. Everything is connected…Spirit, Soul, Mind, and Body (Heart – Vital Organs), everything is connected. Our body, everything…our Blood (lifeline), Vital Organ Systems, and our soul answers us through our body. When our soul answers, we better listen because she/he guides and protects us from life woes and guides us which way to go. The subtle whispers and butterflies show us which way to go – right, left, front, back; which steps to take on the outside. When our soul answers through our body, it’s guiding and directs us which way to go on the inside for soul healing.
In 2019, I had my physical and was preparing to go to Sedona, AZ to deliver a message at the University of Metaphysics/Sedona. On my way out the door, I received a call from my doctor. She said my A1C showed that I was Diabetic – Type II. When the Liver rejects the insulin. This is what my research showed me. I proceeded to learn everything I could how to reverse this diagnosis – exercise, diet, carbs. I also had to go metaphysical (beyond the physical) to the root cause (the real reason for this having this condition). My body was answering me. I asked a question, albeit unconsciously, I was given the answer that although I gave love, I rejected love for me. Just like my liver rejected the insulin. I had to do the work to go deep. When I read the cause in my Louise Hay book, I immediately understood within my soul that to be true.
When our soul answers…listen. When I went to the graduation, I had my message all prepared. As I was walking to the podium, ready to share what I’d prepared, my script to guide me. When I stood on that podium, my soul guided me to speak and share with the audience what just happened and my diagnosis. I shared my experience and walked from the podium to take my seat. At the end of the graduation ceremony, two Sisters came to me and gave me the name of a book that was part of saving my life. I listened to my soul. My Spirit spoke with my soul, my soul spoke with my body, my mind paid attention to where my soul needed healing. She was sharing with me how to heal her.
I had been rejecting love all of my life. I’d give it, superficially, not soulfully. I’m a poet and when I was a teen, my Grandmother once said to me that I should share my poetry. I said to her that I could never do that, cause then people would get to know who I am. I was afraid to let people know the inside of me because then they wouldn’t like me. See, I didn’t love myself. That’s why I was always busy busy busy. Going out when I could, listening to loud music because I didn’t want to face my thoughts. I didn’t have to come face to face with what I thought about myself. Well, anyway, when the soul answered my question (that I didn’t even know I’d asked), she was saying it’s time to heal that part of me. I am worthy, I deserve to be loved. I began working and asking God to help me heal my soul. To let me see to transform the illusion I’d lived with for so many years. When I went back six months later to give blood to check my A1C, my doctor said I was no longer diabetic.
This year's (2023) physical showed, my A1C had risen. Not to the point of being diabetic; however, I need to watch and monitor my carbs. I shared with her (my doctor) that is a result of our family experiencing something traumatic, I intentionally sabotaged my health because I didn’t want to be healthy. I’m in a space now where I’m learning my sabotage was based on fear, a lack of trust. This experience has opened my soul to truly understand the scripture Mark: 11:23-24…have no inner doubt. I’m asking God and working on this part of my Self Recovery.
When our soul answers, let’s listen. She/He’s only answering a question we asked.
