When I was younger my soul was always trying to guide me, but I wasn’t paying attention. Looking back now, it wasn’t that I purposely ignored it, I think for me it was because I didn’t know any better. I didn’t know how to recognize the signs my soul was sending.
The signs were always coming at me. Every time something in my life happened, my soul showed me the way. It was guiding me to the next step in my journey. At first my signs would present themselves in quiet, subtle ways. When I ignored those however, they would get louder and more obvious.
I recently read about a young lady that stood in line at the courthouse for 3 hours with her former husband to get their marriage certificate. Finally, when they got to the front of the line, while standing right in front of the clerk, there was a bomb threat. A BOMB THREAT! It forced them to evacuate the courthouse on that day.
She turned to her fiancé and asked, “Is this a sign?” Prior to this day, the young lady had already received many subtle signs that this relationship was not right, it was destructive, but she ignored them all. Yes, it was a sign!
When you interfere with your soul’s guidance.
There were many times, I too ignored my soul’s guidance. Like the time when I accepted a job offer because it was more money, knowing very well it wasn’t the right job for me. As early as my initial interview, all the signs were there telling me it wasn’t the right job, but I didn’t listen and proceeded to my second interview just because I thought I “should.” I landed the job, only to realize shortly thereafter it was a huge mistake.
Consider the times you ignored your soul’s guidance. Chances are you did so because you thought “you should.”
Your soul always knows the way. It knows what YOU need and what you truly desire. But when we don’t trust our soul’s guidance, we call the signs a “coincidence” or “whimsy.” To listen to our soul takes acts of courage that can be terrifying. It may require us to be uncomfortable for a time, or maybe it might ask us to give up something we want to continue to hold on to.
Your soul will always show you the TRUTH of who you are and what is aligned with your true self. Therefore, it is important we pay attention and heed our soul’s guidance.
Remember the soul doesn’t yearn for certainty, the soul yearns for freedom.
