Bringing Heaven to Earth: 

Answering a Soul Call

 

By Rebecca Skeele, MA, MSS

Is life challenging you to take a bigger leap? Are you restless with the status quo of your daily routine? Do you feel you are flying blind with an invisible co-pilot?

Often times, the soul calls to us in the midst of a crises or two-by-four. When pieces of your heart are all over the flour there's a quickening that seems to come from the beyond.

In those moments it's difficult to pull our attention away from the hurt, fear or disappointment. Our mind searches for how to clean up the mess - not what is the greater learning. The heart feels raw - not ready to expand.

You might be experiencing a soul call!

"Ah," says the heart. "I've been waiting for this. But there's static on the line."  Learning how to shift frequencies and tune in to the soul channels requires us to get quiet, get present and get out of the way.

Get Quiet

Soul speaks through stillness. Finding a quiet time to go within, silence the monkey mind through breathing or chanting allows the body to settle and relax. Then we hear the deep stirrings of the sound that quickens the heart.

Soul listening is tuning in. When we dial in the frequency a profound peace and well-being floods our body.  Operating from an inner place of peace, rather than fear or anxiety, permeates the space in which we move and have our being.

Soul time is expansive, not hurried or driven. A client remarked the other day, " I always thought my stress came from having too much to do and an inability to say 'no'. Now I realize that if I continually see with my soul eye's there's plenty of time. I am content. There's not a lot of wasted energy and time spent in worry, or anxiety about doing it right. AND I get so much more done."

Get Present

 Turning inside away from the world and it's distractions feels foreign to your reactive human nature. "Won't life be boring?" your head asks.

Soul's agenda is learning, growth, expansion and revelation. Regrets about the past or worrying about the future takes energy and focus away from what is here - now.

All "channels" to and from the divine must be cleared of obstructions. A channel can be anything that serves to receive inspiring thoughts, intuitive hunches, body sensations, heart openings or light "Pay Attention" taps on the shoulder. The most common distortions are caused by old beliefs about our 'story'. Because the human nature's job is to maintain the status quo of 'what has come before' it can kick up quite a bit of doubt and confusion. Compassion, acceptance, loving and patience (all attributes of the soul) equip the cocreator when old conditioning reminds you of past mistakes, the cost of not being right or in control, and fear of failure.

Get Out of the Way

Messages from the Soul provide direction and reassurance. Many times the message is to do nothing. Asking for and living the highest good reminds me that spirit's timing can test the best of intentions to stay patient. Getting limiting actions, beliefs and fears out of the way brings in new discoveries about the nature of God.

1. The highest good teaches me about God.  It's like saying,"God, this is yours. I don’t' have any idea what needs to happen here really. I know what I would like, but I don't see the bigger picture.

You do. So I'm letting and allowing you to show me the revelation so I can grow in my understanding of you."

2.The highest good invites me to stay neutral and impersonal. As a Spiritual scientist I can let go of a desired outcome saying, "I wonder how God is going to work this one out?" or "OK God, do your

stuff. I am looking forward to seeing the highest good in this situation."

Imagine a world in which relationships are woven of heavens instead of hells? Imagine a planet of people so committed to inner growth and expansiveness that no one would be allowed to go hungry or homeless? Impossible, you say? Idealistic? To the soul, who lives in limitlessness and knows your magnificence, the answers to these dilemmas are already present. Ask today to see with those eyes and respond to the call. All will be blessed.
