Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

According to author and spiritual teacher Gary Zukav, the Seat of the Soul is when “our inner world and outer world meet.”

“When our personality comes fully to serve the energy of our soul and create authentic power and truth.”

“Truth is that which does not contaminate or weaken us, it empowers us.”

“Truth makes us feel compassionate, joyful and in harmony.”

So in case your energy feels weak or simply unaligned with your truth, you will know.

As only we know when the way we show up in the world doesn’t match the needs of our soul.

I have heard psychiatrist Kelly Brogan MD, talk about depression in this way, as when the choices made in life, are so out of sync with our soul’s needs, that something literally sucks the life out of us.

I have no idea whether this is true or not, yet, it does correlate with the idea that our personality and our soul are directly linked and will have a big impact on our mental health.

On this note, I am going to invite you to pause and take a deep inhale. As you exhale slowly, how about feeling your feet on the ground and your sit bones on the surface they might be in contact with.

Let’s take another deep inhale and put your preferred hand on your heart. How about infusing soothing compassion from the palm of your hand deep into your heart. Compassion for the place within that does it’s best. Compassion for the child within that only felt loved when behaving a certain way. Compassion for the parts you push away. Let’s breath it all in.

Times are changing, and our patriarchal foundations are getting a little shaky. So please feel free to question your limiting beliefs and the parts of your personality that no longer serve you.

How about looking at life beyond norms? This is by no means a rebellious act, but an unconditional act of love.

May we all feel blessed
May we all feel empowered
May we all live our truth
