YOUR SOUL CREATES AN ELEGANT OUTCOME EVERYTIME, IF YOU WILL LISTEN

What would it be like to have the most efficient all-knowing reminder service prompting you on the right thing to do 24/7 – 365 days a year! It would take a load off your mind, and reduce your to do list dramatically, not so? Living lightly this way is what’s on offer from your Soul. And what hurts us most is ignoring it!

Cat shares real life experiences of how her Soul prompted her
I recently remembered this fabulous truth when I arrived, by impulse, at the voters registration offices with only hours left to get on the roll. Up until that morning I was totally ignorant of the cut off time, but acting on my Soul promptings as I had breakfast, I landed up registered in the right time, right place. Elegant! Easy! No cell phone reminder, diary or drama!

It happens all the time. Another time I had just returned from the UK not knowing that my driver’s licence was about to expire. Busily involved in starting up my South African life again, it never even occurred to me to check it. But my Soul knew about it, and so when my daughter mentioned drivers licence renewals one morning, my soul spoke loud and clear – by that I mean something ran through me as I heard those words – and I decided there and then that I would go to the licence office that day! On arriving I discovered that it was to expire the very next day! Woohoo! What joy! How amazing and how easy to avoid frustration, time and money, and feel fabulously supported and aligned at the same time! And this marvellous reminder service of the Soul is there for everyone.

What stands in your way?
But what stands in the way of this natural process is your mind-mind and its overbearing thinking process. Instead of planning and scheming all the time, what is needed is self awareness; in particular an awareness of what is moving through you in the moment.

How does your Soul speak to you?
The Soul speaks to you via a gentle but clear urge to do something. It is a seemingly physical experience, but mystically transcends the body at the same time. It calls you to act, but too many people are de-sensitized to this feelings – and don’t taken action on the impulse.

If you feel its absence in your life, it is not that it isn’t there, but that you are not allowing it. It is important to know that it happens in real time and needs to be responded to the same way. There is no forward planning. It runs through you just-in-time (dam! we all want forward notice…) And when it comes through you, like a sneeze, it takes over for a split second. Unlike a sneeze it can be ignored! My prayer is that you don’t ignore it one moment more!

So what hurts most in life – ignoring impulses of your Soul. It hurts not to say YES to your Soul. Your Soul is the most efficient reminder service in the world! It is a field of intelligence that knows your perfect life plan and guides you step by tiny step. To say yes requires courage but brings joy, like riding a river. To say no is living your programming. Your mind-mind will always find reasons why not.

But as Deepak Chopra says ‘The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.’

WHY LISTENING TO YOUR SOUL IS IMPORTANT TO GOAL ACHIEVEMENT

The Soul is a field of intelligence and a stream of energy.  It is not a replica of your human form but it knows of YOUR human condition intimately, and holds the memories of all your lives, past and future, however it is not moved by emotions like the human-self.

The Soul knows every decision you have and will ever make – right to the point of the death of your body. It knows your challenges and every single possibility that presents itself in every choice, whether seemingly mundane, like which route to take to work, or seemingly huge, like which person to marry.

Your Soul has lived your life already and knows what life you would have led as you go up the tunnel to Spirit, but at the same time it also mystically remains connected to Spirit (your Spirit and the Universal Life Force – the Great Spirit). Quite something, is it not? It therefore knows your destiny and the life path to which you committed as you took on a human form, and all your human foibles and struggles, and it mediates between the two – all with the aim of getting you to raise your human consciousness.  It is that purpose, raised human consciousness, that is Soul’s total abiding purpose.

In light and gratitude,

Cat

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE IGNORE OURSELVES, AND OUR SOUL

“When we live our life contrary to the inner guidance of our Soul, our actions often have a disharmonious effect upon ourselves, others and the Earth. This is why the evolution of individual human consciousness is intimately linked with the future of this planet. In light of this, the crisis of all physical illness, emotional imbalance and planetary upheaval has but one ultimate purpose: to provide an opportunity that will motivate us to realign our body, mind and emotions with the infinite love, wisdom and healing of our Soul. Therefore, whenever we gather the courage to do whatever it takes to end the war within, we contribute directly and immediately to our own healing and transformation as well as to the peace that our world cries out for.” – John-Michael

Blessings on your Day!

LUCID DREAMING – 3 WAYS TO GET CLOSER TO YOUR SOUL, AND ATTRACT YOUR IDEAL LIFE

I recently attended a brilliant talk by Collin Campbell on lucid dreaming. (As it turns out lucid dreaming wasn’t a talk on out of body experiences at night or such things, but rather lucid dreaming is dropping the veneer of the 5 senses to get to live closer to Spirit day and night.) He spoke in depth about the importance of discomfort in our lives, and how modern society with all its creature comforts, creates more and more distance between us and Soul and Spirit.  It was a good reminder for me as I am experiencing a lot of discomfort in my own life at the moment – journeying deeply with the messages that my body is sending through poor health.  What I remember especially about his talk was the three things he said were essential lucid dreaming

1.       Persistence

2.       Willlingness

3.       Patience

Best of all was his definition of willingness.  He said ‘willingness is simply saying IT IS WHAT IT IS’. How lovely!  What a fab definition of willingness! What I hear him saying is a total non-resistance to the circumstances and situations of our lives.  It is not about being feeble or weak, rather, when we accept what is happening as being perfect for us in the moment, we are WILLINGLY opening to Spirit. Non-resistance frees up energy and allows the great Life Force to flow into our world and move us to exactly where we should be!

A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW CAT WORKS WITH HER SOUL TO BRING ABOUT UPLIFTED MANIFESTATION

On Tuesday I had a day from heaven! What made it fabulous beyond fabulous, was that it was set up to be a day from hell. Ok, not literally, thank goodness. But the set up was perfect for toil and trouble, snot and drama.
I recently moved into what I considered dream offices and training rooms. Within the space of a week however, the deal had turned upside down. The company who was moving out decided not to move out. Because the landlord couldn’t handle the situation emotionally, he turned the admin of the premises over to the tenant who had decided to stay. What followed was a very slick case of passive forced removal. First he refused to give me the office I had chosen and agreed, then he more than doubled the rent, and 10 days later booted me out!
When I received the very nasty email telling me to leave it felt like a dagger into my heart. It wasn’t a simple email. It was an energetic barb and affected me deeply. I loved the offices and my first response was pain. Then it turned to vindictive anger during which I wrote an stinging response to him and the landlord explaining my legal rights and viewpoint on ethics. Fortunately I decided to sleep on it before sending the mail. Guess what happened? My internet went down for nearly a week! Life stopped me from sending the mail and during that internet down time, the task of packing up physically allowed me to access a higher perspective AND find the offices that were really for me. This is how it went.
At some point in the drama I remembered the key truth I teach: anger, pain and stress close the heart. Since the heart is the manifesting organ, contemplating stinging emails was the worst thing I could do for myself, my future. The only person that would suffer would be me! As I took this in, another realisation dropped through the pipeline into my consciousness. Could it be that I was paying back karmic debt having operated that very way in business myself many years ago? As I packed up, both realisations settled into my cells, and I left with a heart open and a mind free. But let me tell you of the miracles that happened to help me pack up, and move on.
Firstly I had a significant dream after the rent was raised. In the dream I was in the office allocated to me. My office cupboard had been moved away from the door and two elderly yet fit men were inspecting the place. As I watched them in the dream I realised they were going to help me do up the place, in particular paint the walls white. The dream was so clear that when I woke up the next day I drew a picture and made notes. I felt very certain that I was being mystically helped with my office situation.
Secondly I never made plans to move. I simply woke up on the 1st, and tried to get hold of a truck. When I wasn’t successful I got into my little car and headed towards the office to start packing. On the way I stopped to take a call. When I pulled back into the road I took note that it had set me back time wise. But I thought ‘”I’m in the perfect time always””. Shortly after that  I noticed  a little white truck driving in front of me and started to wonder if this truck and driver operated their own business.
I said to myself  that if he continued on my route, I would jump out and approach him. And that’s exactly what happened. There and then, on the side of the road in the sparkling morning sun, I found the means to move at a cost I could afford – and within the hour. Then my sister said her gardener to help me carry furniture. The move went like clockwork and on the way back from dropping the gardener back at my sister’s house, I noticed a sign on a white walled property. ‘”conference space to rent (at great prices)”
Wow! That caught my interest. I travelled on. I started to go slower. That conference space was calling me. I travelled even slower.  Then suddenly I did a U turn and went back. You see, when riding the flow of life, it’s your feet that do the leading, not your head. And it happens in the present moment, not by mental plan. It’s a about responding to the desires that run unexpectedly through your consciousness like a gentle breeze playing on water. So  I drove into the office campus and stopped outside the conference centre that had first drawn me. Here, in spite of the many open places, couldn’t seem to find the right space to park and drove my car in crazy circles. Bizarre but true! So instead I continued down the road as it narrowed down and wove amongst the African bush.
My car found itself in front of a beautiful rambling thatch house, obviously occupied by businesses. Following my feet once again I simply went into the first door I saw. Glass and light and high reaching ceilings greeted me and I wandered into the offices shouting “”hello, hello””.  Not really knowing what I was doing there, I asked the first thing that came to mind “”do you by any chance have office space””.  And so it was I met the most delightful human being and found perfect offices, at the perfect price, and in a complex shared by others who aspired to uplifted business and higher conscious living.

This dear reader is the potential that life offers us all. To let go of the need to plan, attack or repress. To allow the Divine Life Force to take us to the place where we should be – not by a voice that speaks from the heavens, nor by downloading a plan into our minds, but simply by following our feet as directed by our heart. Then all things work together for our higher good, and life becomes a joyous expression, an easy process of simply riding the river!  Effortless effort. Stop Pushing. Start Riding.

A BEAUTIFUL EXPLANATION OF THE SOUL’S PURPOSE & ROLE

The soul’s role is to bring you home, back to Spirit using a set of experiences and circumstances as the learning platform. We get back home to Spirit  self when we connect with spiritual possibilities. We get back home when our human choices resonate with the higher possibilities of the Divine.
The mystic texts refer to this great task and even tell us how we got to be so removed from the Divine Life Force. Levi explains the Creation and our fall from Grace in his Aquarian Gospel :
“The Triune God breathed forth, and seven Spirits stood before his face… these spirits moved on the face of boundless space and seven ethers were, and every ether had its form of life. These forms of life were but the thoughts of God, clothed in the substance of their ether planes… they are composed of substance far too fine for fleshly eyes to see, and still they constitute the soul of things. And in their native planes all creatures are supplied with nourishment from the ethers of their planes. Because all forms of life on every plane are thoughts of God, all creatures think, and every creature is possessed of will, and, in its measure, has the power to choose….  
And so it was with every living thing, until the will became a sluggish will, and then the ethers of the protoplast, the earth, the plant, the beast, the man began to vibrate very slow. The ethers all became more dense, and all the creatures of these planes were clothed with coarser garbs, the garbs of flesh, which men can see; and thus this courser manifest, which men call physical appeared. And this is what is called the fall of man; but man fell not alone for protoplast, and earth, and plant and beast were all included in the fall. The angels and the cherubim fell not; their wills were ever strong and so they held the ethers of their planes in harmony with God.”
This is it, in a nutshell! read it, re-read it, and read it again until it explodes in your psyche, when that happens nothing will be the same again!

CONSCIOUS BREATH IS THE FIRST CONTACT WITH YOUR SOUL

Tuning into your Soul, the overlighting intelligence and energy of your life is as simple as four easy steps, taking no longer than 3 minutes a day.

These steps are:

1. find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed
2. set the alarm clock for three minutes
3. close your eyes and bring your attention on your breathing.
4. breathe in for the count of 4, pulling air into the tummy so that it expands, hold it for a second, and then softly exhale for the count of 6, hold it for a second. Repeat this breathing until your alarm clock goes.
At first you might find your mind chips in, chattering away about what you need to do or other such stuff. When that happens, gently bring your attention back to the process of counting your breaths in and out. Just become breathing and counting, counting and breathing. With practice easier and a feeling of deep peace enters in.
The beauty of this is that starting off each day with this exercise gives you a sense of control of your life. Even more exciting is the scientific fact that this type of breathing releases feel- good chemicals in the brain (serotonin).
‘Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of it – right in the hub of the wheel – not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place, where you can get frayed and crazy. The hug of calmness, that your heart, that where God lives within you, where you will always find peace. ‘  Anon

YOUR SOUL HELPS YOU ATTRACT WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE

Manifestation goes beyond goal setting. Instead of using mind power and focussed action to achieve your goals, manifestation reaches deeper, bringing in psycho-spiritual and emotional aspects. Essentially manifestation is a much broader, multifaceted approach to achieving those things your heart desires.
Manifestation, it turns out, has at its core, the heart – your real heart AND your heart of hearts. For most of us this means that the energy that gathers in our head through the process of thinking, needs to drop into the heart. In the West we have to retrain the basic everyday way we operate. But it can be done, and the more people who do it, the easier it becomes for others.
According to spiritual teacher Gregg Braden when the energy of the lower three chakras, comprising love or it’s opposite, meet the energy of the top three chakras, comprising thought/intellect, a feeling is created  in the heart. The quality of that feeling will determine what is manifested. And the quality of the feeling, is determined by the quality of the originating thought and whether it meets fear or love half way down.
It stands to reason that feelings of self worth and value will be a key determinant to whether you are successful in deliberate manifestation projects. Raising awareness and bringing healing to your self esteem is a prerequisite to achieving your goals in life. Hah! That’s the bad news for many as this is easier said than done – and many are so heart blocked that it’s seems an enormous task.
The good news is that the minute you set the intention to heal your self-esteem your Soul engages as well. Your Soul brings about an ideal set of circumstances (often not too comfortable), creating a perfect learning path -thus providing help in mystical and marvellous ways. Thank you Soul!

HOW YOUR SOUL GETS YOUR ATTENTION – AND HELPS YOU MAKE THE RIGHT MOVES

Last night I fell down a double flight of stairs. I wasn’t hurt, just stunned – and yes, bruised. But the moment got my attention and reminded me of something I am totally and utterly convinced about : discomfort is a message from the Soul. Discomfort is a sign post, a way of your soul getting your attention.

Speeding down 50 steps, slip sliding in the wet of a recent rain storm, and musically accompanied by the sound of my umbrella clanging on each step, certainly got my attention. Believe you me!I sat, skirt askew, in semi darkness. The passage light had thankfully switched itself off during my descent, bringing the dignity to my thighs. Surrounded by concerned family and agog neighbours I was struck dumb but incredibly aware at the same time.

It’s true I could only just give ‘yes’ ‘no’ answers to concerned questions like ‘did you bump your head’ :  ‘no’, do you want to go the hospital?’ : ‘no’.  But it’s equally true that I knew Spirit had just dealt with me. Actually I feel like I’ve just had a big hiding, right on my backside. 50 sharp slaps to get me to stop doing what I have been doing.And so today, I’m sobered. I’m connected to a sense that something in my life is totally out of alignment. And I’m making mental and emotional space to listen so I know exactly what adjustments are calling to be made.

Filed under Soul - the overlighting intelligence and life force of your life, What Changed My Life!

FOCUS ON YOUR BODY CONNECTS YOU WITH YOUR SOUL

As I develop a better and more loving relationship with my body (about time…) my relationship with my Soul has changed too! That’s unexpected. Who would think that focussing on my flesh and bones in an appreciative way, would heighten my connection with my Soul? But that’s exactly what’s happening.
Each day I get to appreciate how this 59 kg of bone, blood, skin and organs is my helper and my friend. It might not look like Heidi Klum or Charlize Theron’s body, but by golly, it’s my ticket to this experience. For that, I love it. And how brilliantly it has survived my negativity over the years. Pummelling, starving, bingeing, junk food, and over exercising are only some of the things it has dealt with – in style!
Ironically appreciating that my body is the ticket in to this human experience, has heighted the sense of my bigger Soul self. It has brought into focus my Soul’s continual presence in my life. And that awareness makes me feel held and guided. I feel more of myself. That’s nice! 
If you’re keen to try connect more positively with your body read my blog entitled ‘knowing the voice of the Soul’. It has some great tips!
