Soul Writing is “A Thing”
I believe we are all on this earth to learn the lessons we need so we can move onto the next chapter of our soul life more powerfully. We come here with contracts made prior to our birth with those closest to us so we can get whatever lesson it is we need. I know it sounds a bit woo-woo, but makes sense to me. Writing for the Soul, which is also known as Soul Writing, is a critical pathway of my journey.
What is Writing for the Soul?
If you haven’t heard of soul writing, it is when you ask your soul questions you don’t know the answers to, you use your non-dominant hand to write what messages are presented to you, your conscious will stay out of the way as it concentrates on just doing the writing process and your soul will answer the question in quite a profound way giving you the answer.
What does soul writing bring: the lessons, the questions, the answers…
What are these lessons that I haven’t learned? What part will they play? I probably heard about “these lessons” long, long ago but first understood it 25 years ago when I read “The Celestine Prophecy” and it has always puzzled me as to what I could have ever gotten out of all the sh** that has been thrown at me. So I’ve spent these years examining and exploring everything spiritual trying to find answers.
To find these answers you first need to learn about yourself, and who you really are. It’s like going gold prospecting, you come across nuggets on the top which excites you, so you keep going and start really digging turning it into a gold mine, where you find more and more chunks, then it seems to dry out, you can’t find any more, so you think you are done and have all the gold there was to find in that mine.
……..you can’t find more, so you think you are done………
This is where others often jump off. It is becoming harder with little discoveries ever surfacing. Thinking they have done all the discoveries they are going to find, they abandon their mine and shift to another area. Starting all over again because they think this will be easier, but all they are doing is repeating the same. Being the determined miner I am, even though it has been hard, I have kept going knowing there is still more gold to find. Knowing I will find that seam to knowledge and the success I have been seeking. If I am not quite living the life I have dreamed of and not getting the results I want, I can’t manifest my desires into being, then there has to be more gold to find and I know the answer is within me.
……there has to be more gold…….the answer is within me.
I have two spiritual coaches and a business coach keeping me focused and on target. I’m working hard both on business and on me. I know my numerology and the challenges that has presented to me with my birth numbers (see Dan Millman: The Life You Were Born To Live). I am an Enneagram 9, so I understand I am the mediator when inflow becomes the performer and when in stress becomes the loyal skeptic, (see The Essential Enneagram by David Daniels & Virginia Price). I am a metal ox, an Aries with Gemini rising and lost child is my strongest inner child role……..
……but what is that missing piece???? What lesson don’t I have yet??? I have been writing for many years. Soul Writing. I have a whole book (I use Paperblanks – a book with empty pages) where I have written to my soul and I feel that I have got very similar responses over the years. I feel that I have been working on my “being deserved” forever and “self-love” the same. Deep down I really do believe that I am deserving of everything that I desire and I really do love myself. But what is the piece I am missing?
“Writing is a process, A journey into the memory and the soul” -Isabel Allende
This morning’s soul writing was really interesting. I asked my soul, what intrinsic emotional need do I need to be able to shift from existing to living? I pushed through the normal half-page blah blah blah which seems to be the same reoccurring message about my intrinsic need for happiness which will come from self-acceptance, this is normally where I stop, but this morning I said to myself:
- there has to be more please expand on what you have already said
- soul, please give me more of what I need to hear,
- I am ready to hear what it is you have to tell me.
The last three lines of my writing have put my whole life journey into perspective and although I am still processing what it actually means, I will share it with you and explain how this will make a massive difference to my self-worth moving forward. Thirty-one words, a sentence, came next..
Writing for the Soul – A Wow Moment
“Understanding that you were a huge gift from god, not a burden especially to your mother and sister, but instead you were a teacher of love and acceptance of all things.”
Wow wow wow. What this means to me is that my role to them was to teach them love and acceptance, it is up to them if they learned this lesson, that is not my job. I have played my part and done the job I was sent here to teach them. Wow! I had always looked at our contractual agreement with others looking through the lens of what I was meant to learn from them, never what I was here to teach others. My lack of self-worth never really allowed me the privilege of giving to others in such a huge meaning full way.
Now I understand why I am meant to be the teacher of wisdom and why I have so much wisdom to give others. Have you considered Soul Writing? Have you asked your soul why you are really here?
