“By choosing your thoughts, and by selecting which emotional currents you will release and which you will enforce, you determine the quality of your life. You determine the effects that you have upon others and the nature of the experience of your life.” Gary Zukov
When you focus on what you love and what brings you joy, you are automatically aligned with your soul and the highest part of your being.
Your energetic frequency will be high, and not only will you feel great, you will also attract more experiences that make you feel great. You will be at your most empowered, in your authentic power.
Everything you focus on expands. You can use this universal truth to your advantage. The more you train yourself to focus on what you love, what brings you joy and on the positive side of everything, the easier it gets to continue doing so.
Every person has a soul, the part that is immortal. It is also known as the higher self. We also have a personality, which is not part of the soul. Gary Zukov, author of Seat of the Soul, points out that fearful and violent emotions can be experienced only by the personality. Only the personality can feel anger, fear, hatred, vengeance, sorrow, shame, regret, indifference, frustration, cynicism and loneliness. Only the personality can judge, manipulate and exploit. Only the personality can pursue external power. The personality can also be loving, compassionate and wise but love, compassion and wisdom do not come from the personality. They are the experience of the soul.
When the soul is acknowledged and valued, it begins to infuse life with wonderful synchronicity and things begin to work out in beautiful ways. One of the best ways to hear the soul is with our intuition, those quiet hunches that never lead us wrong. Meditation is another way to be in better contact with the soul and hear its guidance. I like how Zukov says that when the personality comes to serve the energy of its soul, that is authentic empowerment.
Zukov wisely says that serving the soul and finding authentic empowerment is the goal of the evolutionary process, and it is the reason for our being. He explains. “The conflicts of a human life are directly proportional to the distance at which an energy of personality exists separately from the soul, and therefore…in an irresponsible position of creation. When a personality is in full balance, you cannot see where it ends and the soul begins. That is a whole human being.”
So the question then is how do we hear the soul and know what it is guiding us to do? How do we get into alignment with the soul? I know for sure that whatever we love is in alignment with the soul. Whatever brings joy is also in alignment with the soul. Intuition is a little trickier — to know what is intuition. But those quiet hunches also bring us into alignment with the soul. Whatever gives a feeling of constriction anywhere in the body is definitely out of alignment.
Whatever makes you feel expanded is very much in alignment with the soul. Focusing on what you love and what brings you joy will keep you in a very expanded state and also in a high energetic frequency.
The very best way to be aligned with your soul is to be focused in the present moment, feel completely present in the body by feeling awareness in every part of the body, and be in whole brain state. This is a state where you feel blissful and engulfed in love.
I describe exactly how to do this and how to rewire your brain to eventually be in this state automatically in the ebook, Finding Heaven on Earth: Discovering the Power of Flow.
