Connecting to the sound of you
What does it mean to align to your soul? We all have a purpose or calling as to why we are here. There is an intention and a desire to express this intention into manifestation that guides our life behind the scenes so to speak. Some people refer to this as a blueprint, which is a map of sorts that we follow consciously or unconsciously. It is what brings particular people and experiences to us, it’s responsible for the perspectives and views we have about life, and it lays the foundation for our beliefs, all so that we can learn/express a particular theme which we came here to play out.
Many people are not aware of their blueprint or what they came here to learn and share. It’s as if a cloud came over our knowing and blocked the ray of sunlight of awareness of our soul. Thus we experience this subtle, or not so subtle for some, feeling of disconnection and confusion nearly continuously. We have become so accustomed to feeling this way that we’ve normalized disconnection and come to seek stability, safety and comfort in this external world rather than seek an inner knowing of ourselves.
In order to hear the sound of your soul the desire must arise inside of you to know yourself. The clouds that lay over your knowing are thick making it appear as if they are solid, impenetrable structures from which nothing can see through. The only impulse that can pierce those seemingly solid clouds is your intensely committed and focused energy to know what is on the other side of them. It is through the intensity of your commitment and focus to know yourself that you make contact with your soul and see your blueprint, your purpose and calling for being incarnated as who you are now.
Aligning with and hearing your soul requires your complete devotion to that single focus above all else. That means above what you sometimes think is supposed to happen or want to happen. It requires full detachment from the physical person-centric life as a source of comfort and a resting into nonphysical aspects of yourself. Your commitment to your purpose for incarnation and what you are here to learn/express must be prioritized more than any material or relational comfort you find yourself attached to. It must become your default reference point so that in each and every moment your every thought and action comes from being rested in your soul. It is from here that true clarity, connection and knowingness arises, which is an inherent effect of you knowing yourself.
Becoming your calling
Your calling made manifest
Knowing your calling requires that you hear the call. What called you here? Was it the sound of millions or even billions of people asking for help and seeking clarity and connection despite feeling lost and separate? For many of us here at this time it is this very thing that called us into incarnation. We came to shine light, express love and assist people in reconnecting and remembering themselves. This calling that we have all answered, that has brought us here in this very moment, has also allowed us to bring our perspectives, our energetic templates and ways of seeing and knowing here with us. The perspectives that we carry may not be novel to us, but they are novel for many people on this planet. Novel perspectives (plus our inherent energetic constitutions) allow for different seeing, which brings with it new possibilities for creation on this planet.
Most of our callings are simple. To be who we are and share how we see is what creates an impact, yet many of us get lost when we come here to this planet. We forget ourselves by getting consumed with the perspectives of our immediate environment which narrow and shut down our forgetting even further. Our focus gets wrapped up in what the collective values and because we’ve lost sight of ourselves we follow the collective unconscious/asleep crowd. We devalue our knowings and our perspectives until we no longer even remember them. This is how we forget and how we stop hearing the call that brought us here in the first place.
The good news is that you are your calling. There isn’t any special thing that you need to do or add to yourself. You had everything you needed to complete your calling before you were even born. That should feel relieving. You already know and have all the resources that you need to be yourself even if you have forgotten why you are here. However to feel the fulfillment that comes with living your calling it is helpful to learn to connect to and remember it. If you don’t you may feel like you are drifting rather than feeling that deliberate, intentional, purpose driven life.
The truth is you are always in alignment, you are always in some way answering the call that called you here, because just by your very being you cannot not be. Yet your experience may not always feel like it is aligned to you. This is important. This is the way that you are directing and guiding your own self. You must listen to when you feel out of alignment and follow whatever impulse or intuition you must to feel in alignment again, because this is where deep fulfillment lives. When you feel fulfilled and aligned you perceive a universe that is abundant and perfect. Don’t forget that your perspective is what creates the universe you experience and thus reality. This is the very reality that you came here to help the collective you see differently. So by bringing yourself into right relationship and perspective within yourself you answer your calling. This is the difference between consciously being your calling rather than unconsciously being it. You have a responsibility to yourself to hear the call and align yourself fully with the call, so that you are consciously creating this thing called life and bringing into manifestation the world you truly desire.
