On my own journey of ascension, of embodying spirit, I have discovered some things that surprised me. One being that my soul, my Divine I Am is just wanting to love me, and not just a kind of ‘New Agey’ Hallmark moment love. But a deep, respectful, abiding and unconditional love. She wants to feel my essence as much as I want to feel hers.
At the earlier stages of my awakening I wanted to bring my soul in closer so that my body could come back into more balance. But what I discovered was having her in my body just feels so damned good! THAT became my motivation for bringing her in closer and closer.
Sometimes I feel her as a sense of peace wafting over me, and sometimes as a sensual awareness of my surroundings, a blissed-out feeling. I often refer to it as being stoned without the paranoia. And sometimes I experience my soul as a full-on sexual energy. Some refer to it as a kundalini or life force energy.
It feels like rapture and like I am being made love to. It used to feel awkward because I was having trouble connecting the dots: Feeling sexual and spirit at the same time? Certainly not what I was taught in Sunday School!
But our soul is sensual and it’s why it loves expressing through physical bodies! The human body offers so much. Touch, smell, sound, taste and seeing the world around us. It’s like our soul wants to dive deep into its own painting or sculpture and bring life to it.
As an artist I infuse my soul into all my creations: my drawings, paintings, writing, music and videos. They all come alive because as my soul I infuse my radiance into them. And those art forms may have all kinds of technical ‘imperfections’ in them yet the soulful essence of the expression overrides any so-called ‘flaws.’
So it is with our soul wanting to express through us, without concern for our so-called imperfections and flaws, but are they? Or are they just part of the unique fabric of our life that keeps evolving, and transforming?
BEING DOWN TO EARTH
Some people are concerned that they have lost their passion for being here, but perhaps they are just letting go of old passions and allowing in a new one. No longer feeling passion that came from drama. No longer having to have a ‘mission’ or ‘purpose’ like healing others or saving the planet, but instead just enjoying life here in these bodies.
Yes, even in these bodies that we feel at times have betrayed us. Bodies that get sick, break down, get diseases. Yet the healing comes from the passion to be here. Yes, at times it feels like a catch-22…we know consciousness affects our health and well-being profoundly, but how we feel in these bodies affects our life and our consciousness as well.
But at a certain point it’s to let that all go and just say, “what the hell! I am just going to go for it! I am going to just love me just where I’m at and allow my soul to come in and see what happens.”
And along the way I have discovered as I just allow, it sets up a dynamic in which my soul gets the green light and comes in even closer. Then I feel great and carefree and it seems to open up a desire to express. And then to share those expressions. And that place is delicious.
Another part of all this is letting go of what we perceived as a ‘spiritual’ person. We cannot take that picture with us into our enlightenment. You know, the one in which we walk around curing the sick. Or we have infinite patience, always poised, wise and issue free. There will be times when we will feel utterly impatient with the 3D world. With those who try to feed off of us. We will need to let go of the idea of a being who has transcended their human body, or has become a super-human. In fact, it’s about coming ‘down to earth’ not in the sense of becoming more logical or mental, but in terms of being more present in our bodies. Our bodies don’t need to be completely integrated either before we achieve that state of enlightenment.
All of the physical issues eventually do come back into balance as we integrate our light body. But it’s not about waiting for some future state of ‘perfection’ before inviting our soul into our life and our bodies. Why deny ourselves the best of all worlds, and the most fulfilling of experiences?
