I awoke this morning, reminded that I am a soul having a human experience here on Earth. While I have known this, it was important that I share it with you. For sometimes, I think we forget who we are when we are mired in the human experience.
As humans we fret (worry) and we sink to those emotional levels of low vibrations. We grieve. We feel disappointment. We get caught up in the story in our heads of what is going on here on Earth. The human story becomes all encompassing and we forget temporarily who we are because the human experience is so overwhelming at times. Every little nit-picking bump in the road of life becomes disastrous and bigger than it really is because we are seeing it from the human viewpoint and not from the soul.
I believe we are born as a soul to have a human experience and dare I say, the life lessons we endure here are meant to empower us as we break down the limiting human beliefs we accumulate over time and through various experiences from childhood through adulthood. When we concentrate on the sometimes harrowing atrocities that we endure, our focus is not on the soul side, but the human.
The human experience allows us to learn life lessons such as forgiveness, trust and being an observer during the life’s harder times. Our soul is here to witness, to nurture and to guide our human experience when we allow the innate flow of knowledge to calm us, to enlighten us and to lovingly support us. Our faith and God allow us to observe the soul connection in all with whom we engage. We can be with the soul in others even when their human reactions are difficult to bear.
We are all one here – a collection of souls here on Earth having a human experience. Like busy atoms, we bump into each other, perhaps connect for awhile, only to be released. We may bump on friendly terms or not so friendly terms. We may merge with others for a time, only to realize that we are not on the same path anymore and thus, we disengage. But the connections and disconnections are here for learning the life lessons and for training our human side to expand through experiences and wisdom.
Once we realize our soul connection with our human and the soul connections with other souls outside of our own, an inner peace emerges with faith, love and wisdom. We realize and forgive because we understand that our human experience is prone to making mistakes in order to learn and we are willing to stand in peace without judgement on others. We are given the insight in observance of the other soul’s human and we are given the ability to see beyond the fractured being through enlightenment.
I am not implying we are two people inside each person. Our human side and our soul are connected. Perhaps we forget when we are born as a human and one of our jobs here is to remember that we are a part of a bigger plan and an expansive source as souls. Once one sparks that connection between the human and soul of ourselves, we cannot forget from whence we came. Indeed, I have found that avenues of life learning lessons come into play like a growth spurt with the added caveat of the soul now connected and helping our human side to understand the bigger picture here. That helps to answer the “why” we have chosen to have these human experiences!
I have always loved the book by Neale Donald Walsch called, The Little Soul In The Sun for it aptly makes sense to me in explaining why many of us endure life’s challenges. Our soul longed to experience the human experience and to learn through it.
If you feel different than others when you are in the midst of a not-so-savory experience, connect with your soul and allow wisdom to enlighten you. You are not alone as you walk through this lifetime. Once we realize that we are not alone, that we are Divinely supported and loved, experiences do not take on the magnitude of pain nor error. Instead, it is replaced with forgiveness, mercy, faith, love and connections.
I am not sure if I have explained myself well today or even after reading thus far, you understand my point. Sometimes I feel as if I know what I want to say, but it gets lost in translation unless the reader and I are on the same wavelength.
Please let me know if you have a similar knowing inside. I have had the knowing my whole life, but it was blocked for years due to the human experiences I endured. In this precious moment, the connection is strengthening and for that reason, I wanted to share it with you.
On this lovely Sunday Soul Day, please know that I am thinking of you, wherever you are and sending my heartlight to shine to yours in connection. May you feel the abundance of love and light in your heart.
