You do not have a soul, you are a soul and you have a body. (CS Lewis)
Your soul is not separate from you. In truth, it is your true existence. We are simply the shadow of all that we are and it is so easy to forget who we are, where we come from and what we can be. Sometimes we just need a little reminder. These are 11 things your soul wants you to remember:
You are exactly where you are supposed to be.
Whatever the circumstances, no matter what route you take to get to where you are right now. The choices, the results, the paths you could take and not take.
Your soul wants you to know that everything happens for a reason, and nothing happens by chance. Trust, everything will be fine.
Self-esteem is measured by you, and you alone
If you are constantly looking for approval and validation outside of you, you will never be happy. We are all different and we perceive all things in different ways, but your reputation is not something you can really control.
Your reputation is not really in your hands, so stop trying to please everyone around you and start enjoying yourself.
It is never permissible to damage a human soul for the benefit of others, nor to make a villain for the service of honest people.
Get rid of your fears
There are only two truths in the whole universe, the first is love and the second is fear. In equal opposition to each other. To remain in a state of true and pure love, the essence of existence and of life itself, one must not be led by fear.
The fear struck, the love answered and there was nobody.
When times are tough, change the way you see things
All the emotions of worry, conflict, guilt, regret, and sadness come from the fact that you do not live in the present moment. It is only by living fully in the present moment that we can change our point of view and understand that incidents of life on a large scale are minor.
Do not dwell on the past and dream of the future.
Find your passion and act. The next moment in your life is no more important than the present moment. Realize today your dream of tomorrow, and understand that your past actions were meant to help you learn and evolve. So let them go, let them be and enjoy everything you have right now.
The present moment is the only one that is promised to you. From now on, your life could stop in an instant. Instead of worrying about the times to come or losing sleep because of the past, love and really live the moment.
It’s only temporary.
If you are in a bad place, it is only temporary. If you are in a good place, it’s probably also temporary. Things do not last in life. The universe is constantly evolving and so are we. Everything in this moment is ephemeral. Do not get used to it.
You have what it takes.
All you need is already in you. Get to know yourself, to sit down with yourself and to understand yourself. All you need, your strength, courage, compassion, and love, everything exists inside. You have the choice, take what you need and make it stand out in the world.
And all the skills, talents, and motivation you need to succeed are already in you. You must believe in yourself and do your best to get where you want to be. You already have all the tools you need.
You do not need to change.
If you want to change, change! But understand that you do not really need to change something. You are pretty good and smart enough as you are. Do not let anyone tell you that you have to change who you are. Accept your destiny.
Understand that you can not control every little thing in life. Release the control. Do not try to control everything around you. Let the universe do what it will do. When you stop trying to control everything, you will be so much better.
Release your need for control
To think that you can control the results of your life is an illusion created by yourself. We do not know what the future holds and we can not perceive and understand the consequences of each action and reaction, so we must love without attachment, and live without waiting and without judgment.
By putting yourself in a state of acceptance, acceptance of all that is good and bad, you will free yourself from your need for control, you will free yourself from your fears and relax your expectations so that you can live in the present moment.
Accept all the blessings of life and be thankful for everything in return. A cycle of love that continues to grow.
Remember where you come from.
When you know the beginning, you will know the end. When we understand that our consciousness is eternal, we understand that in reality, we are energy.
An energy, a soul, a consciousness that evolves, learns and grows constantly. Each incarnation brings new lessons and new experiences. We come from energy and we will become energy again.
Remember that you are not alone.
You are never alone. There will always be someone for you. And even if you are stuck on a desert island, there will always be you.
It is said that Albert Einstein believed that there was indeed an alternative reality or another world, beyond our own vision. Since the physical eyes were only able to visualize the 3D spectrum in a limited number of colors.
What is beyond the veil of our physics is energy. The immense energy, sometimes you can feel it, other times you can pick up some slight irregularities. We are never really alone. You are always surrounded by the invisible, and if you choose to call, believe me, you might be surprised by the answer.
We are not human beings living a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings living a human experience.
