Awareness is the first step toward becoming more present, mindful, and connected. When we become aware of our thoughts and the meaning we are giving our thoughts that may be causing suffering, we can begin to make a shift. We have the power to create a new story for ourselves, one that is for us, instead of against us. As we bring awareness and openness in to that voice that is causing suffering, telling us ‘I’m not good enough’ or ‘I'm not wanted’ or ‘I’m a failure’ we can practice noticing it with kindness instead of criticism. What we focus on grows. Meditation is a tool to become more aware. Sometimes we don't even recognize that we are in a negative, judgmental, or fearful state. And that when we are in that mindset we attract more of that into our life. We can have awareness and make a shift. We can choose to pause, breathe, and get back to present where we tune into our inner peace, truth, and love. We know this is our truth because we feel it.

30: Connecting to your soul. Spiritual practice to connect. Beginning a practice of being still allows us to reconnect with the parts of us that bring us greater meaning fulfillment and love. Our soul is like no other and when we tap in and listen, we feel grace we feel a whisper that lights us up, ignites our work and service, and spreads out onto others. We’ve all felt it at times in our life but in the hurry of life to do more and achieve more, we may have lost sight of our inner soulful self. All of our achievements are greater and have deeper meaning when we’ve connected to this essence within. We have to take time in the stillness to listen and connect within. Caroline Myss wisely says “The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind”. We have to quiet our mind and connect to our body and feel our soul. Stillness gets us there. • sponsored by Carma project --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
