Within each of us resides the voice of truth…the voice of “God,” the voice of the “Higher Self,” whatever you want to call it. It is the voice that leads us to our truth, our destiny, to expansiveness and love. It is the Voice of the Soul
I has been a busy week at the Lumby house. Clients. Preparation for the January birth. And, my kids have been here for 8 straight days, going on 11 as their father enjoys a week of retreat after a busy art season. (Their father is a really talented artist…check out his site: http://www.scotschmidt.net) Now, don’t get me wrong, I love being busy, making preparations and I especially love soaking up the presence of my children (even when they are fighting over the lamp that is causing a glare in Wil’s tv vision. ) And, I suddenly realized this morning that my Extrovert is spent and my inner Introvert is SCREAMING for attention, nurturing and pampering. Not only that, but the truest voice of my soul – my writer, poet and artist is moaning out of sheer neglect. As I listen to the voices of my soul, I hear a clear command: “Time to switch gears.” So, instead of indulging my normal Thursday morning ritual of sharing mass with the amazing retired nuns at the local Franciscan convent, I will be tending my soul. I will drag out my Sarah McLaughlin CD’s and by myself, allow her angelic voice carry my soul to where it needs to be to muse, be inspired, create and write. My introvert will be happy as will my inner muse. YAY!
My invitation for you today is to do the same. What is your SOUL saying to you? How have your nurtured or neglected the voice within that speaks from your heart and speaks to your heart? The voice that leads you to inspiration, comfort, expansiveness, indulgence? What is your soul asking of you? Time? Attention? To simply be heard? The good news is that the first step is an easy one…and that is to simply listen. Pause for a moment and REALLY listen. What does your heart want? What does your joy want? What does your comfort want? What does your soul LONG for? And the second step….DO IT!
And if that isn’t enough, listen to this song and watch the video and if that doesn’t inspire you…call me and we’ll set up an appointment for some emergency intervention for your soul!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UgPeBjHIjE&feature=fvst
Have an A-Musing day!
