Living a Soulful Life


A complete, hearty life needs to include balance, variety and a healthy amount of soul care. A little chicken soup for the soul (metaphorically speaking) is an antidote for life's ailments. It seems a lot of people these days are talking about the benefits of soulful activities and how it relates to health and wellness. The health of the soul is now coming into play in the overall spectrum of wholeness, which is definitely a good thing.

Taking time to go to your soul for enrichment, for a refill, or to gain perspective and composure is not only helpful, but relaxing and inspiring. Sipping from the universal well regularly is never a bad idea. Here's the thing, if you wander too far from your soul, you will experience an emptiness and longing to come home spiritually. Not going to your soul regularly is like walking through life in the dark on an unlit path.

Part of this process though is coming into a realization that your soul has needs of its own. Being aware of its presence and needs, a person naturally desires to care for the soul. Just as a good doctor directs patients toward health and healing, we must direct our souls toward spirit. We are each the caretakers of our own souls. It is up to us to lead ourselves to wholeness, to drink of the sacred, life giving nectar. Caring for the soul is an art that you can become skilled at with a little practice. And it's an art form that will majorly revolutionize your life once you get good at it.

All of us have an inner, living presence, a soul, which though invisible to the outside world, is utterly real and of utmost importance. Your soul is a living, energetic thing which needs nurture, care and attention. Living a Soulful Life is about listening to and following what your soul is calling you to do.  The by products of living in this manner are unending joy and serene bliss. A soulful existence results from a life that is uniquely aligned with who you are and one which allows you to fully express the talents and passions that stir your soul to greatness.  Living soulfully is exercising and feeding your soul until it ripens and brings forth scrumptious, delectable fruit.

It's easy to obsess over the non-essentials in life, but it is far better to give attention to things which matter most. Making time to honor and validate your inner being is a wise choice which brings an array of blessings with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "Within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related, the eternal ONE." Living in harmony with this entity will prove to be a sublime taste of ecstasy to anyone who tries it. It is like feasting on fillet Mignon for the soul.
