In Sanskrit there is a word known as ‘Jivatma’, which essentially means Human Being.
Jiva, is the human, physical part of us and Atma is the being part of us or the soul.
It is these two elements that really make up all of who we are- on a physical level we have a body, a mind and emotions and on an energetic level we have a soul and intuition.
Our Jiva side is limited by the walls of our body, but our Atma side is endless and contains the same infinite wisdom as the Universe.
Your Soul is an all-knowing being and when you learn to tune into it, life really does take on a whole new meaning.
Understanding the Voice of Your Soul
Everyone’s soul will speak to them a little differently, some will receive messages in their dreams, others through mediation and some through creative work.
There is no wrong or right way when it comes to understanding the language of your soul, but more often than not, our soul can speak to us all through:
1. Joyfulness and Laughter
Joyfulness really goes beyond happiness and into more of an electric, vibrant place. Joy allows us to feel alive, energized and full of life. When you feel joy about a certain decision or person in your life, that is really a sweet confirmation from your soul that you are on the right path.
Following your joy is really about following the path of your soul. Just the same, feeling fear, anxiety or doubt may be the soul’s way of trying to steer you in another direction.
2. Energy Levels
Do you feel vibrant, full of energy and strong? Start paying attention to those moments in the day when you experience a dip in your energy levels. Could it be the food your are eating? The people surrounding you? The work you are involved in?
Your Soul is energy so it makes sense that it would communicate to you through your energy levels. Try monitoring when you energy levels drop as your soul could be trying to send a message your way.
Your soul often does not use words, rather it uses energy or vibration to communicate. Sometimes this can manifest in the form of images, dreams, signs or other moments of synchronicity.
When you are relaxed and in a sleep or meditative state, often your soul is able to come through and offer guidance, advice and suggestions. If you continue to have reoccurring dreams and visions this is even more of a reason to pay attention.
Just the same, seeing repeated images, number sequences and experiencing synchronicity can also be a way that your soul works with the Universe in order to guide you.
Your soul is a powerful creator and along with other soul’s it helps to create the world you live in.
Our soul’s are always guiding us to create, whether it is through art, emotions or new life. Allow yourself to be guided by your passions and take time out of each day to do something creative.
We are all creative beings, it is just a matter of unlocking our potential and removing any resistance.
Finally, the last and strongest way our soul speaks to us is through our intuition.
Intuition is a feeling that goes beyond reasoning. It is that inner voice of knowing that often manifests in our stomach or heart area.
Learning to trust your intuition is crucial in understanding the language of the soul and the more you listen and tune into it, the stronger it will become.
If you could hear your soul speak, what messages would it have for you today?
