In today’s blog post and video, I’d love to give you a little taster into how I first connected to my soul.
Check out the short vid here:
So, how can you connect to your soul and why do it?
The soul feels like home.
The soul feels like truth.
The soul feels like openness.
The soul feels like freedom.
This is pretty much the essence of the work that I’m doing with clients when I work with them on the massage table or online - most are seeking some kind of liberation that allows for true connection. That, for me, is about soul.
In one way or another, we’re exploring through the body, and through your energy field, how to connect to your own soul.
What I’ve learned over time, is this process happens in different ways for different people, so this will be an experience to simplistically play, to begin working on your connection. Before we get to that, I must absolutely reference my beautiful mentor and teacher Melissa Sandon, who has taught me all I know about Energy and Soul Medicine and connecting to my soul - forever and beyond grateful for this woman.
So, here we go:
Get comfortable, and breathe - you can sit in a seat, cross-legged in heroes pose for this. Start to get into your body, by feeling it. Notice your sensations.
Start to become aware of two centers of your body - your heart and your power center
This is how - place one hand on your heart, and the other just beneath your navel - and breathe.
Close your eyes and begin to feel the subtle pulsation that moves through you as you breathe, allow your palms to slightly move away from your heart and then draw them back toward the heart, like a pulse or heartbeat rhythm.
Allow the other hand to begin pulsing too, just off the power center point beneath the navel.
Feel the quality of the air between the skin and the palm, notice if it becomes thicker, warmer, fuzzier - notice its rhythms.
Stay inward, eyes closed. Really feel.
Repeat the intention, as if you’re whispering this into the center of your heart:
I welcome my soul in my body.
Say this a few times, and notice what shifts.
It may take a little while to drop into this place.
See what shifts if you change from open palms on the skin to two fingers pressing into each energy center (e.g index and middle finger at the center of your heart, and index and middle finger at the center of your navel).
The intention is actually so powerful, by bringing your awareness to what it truly feels like to have the soul welcomed inside you. Even if this doesn’t seem logical, you will create a response in your body. Then it will begin to soothe the logical mind because you would have felt it and therefore experienced it.
This is an experiment. So be patient with yourself.
You are finding what works for you to come home, to you.
It’s powerful and worth it.
Experiment with what this intention means to you, reflect on what it means to house your soul energy, your essential nature, inside the body. Get curious.
I would love to know how this feels for you, reply back with your feedback and I’ll be sure to answer any questions you have.
All the love,
