Thanks to Laa’iqah Ebrahim for sending this to me!
Can you meet your Soul in a real and tangible way? The Answer is yes. In 2007 I started doing this daily affirmation ‘I want to know my Soul, see my Soul, hear my Soul, feel my soul, meet my Soul, work in harmony with my Soul.’ Sometimes the desire built up so strong I would shout the affirmation to the sky!
I felt really clear that if I was to be worthy of teaching on the topic I needed to have a personal encounter of a significant kind. Yes I am given lots of psychic information – and have an ever present and astoundingly accurate sixth sense, but I wanted to go a step further and have a personal experience of my Soul as well.
During a meditation at a conference in Italy recently this goal was realised. I had a personal encounter with my Soul Self that was amazing and incredible. And I can tell you that our Soul is alive and kicking and awesome! What I encountered was how true this description from the Course in Miracles actually is:
‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And it’s not just in some of us; it is in every one of us.’
So hang in there, holding fast to the truth that there is a sublime part of you, one that already knows every situation and choice that lies ahead; every possible option and its outcome – and the wisdom to guide you to the right one. Even more exciting is the knowledge that you are indeed magnificent and gorgeous, and that if you will simply hold fast to the desire to meet that magical part of yourself, it is possible.
