Does your ego shout objections to your soul?
I often see my client’s egos shouting objections to their souls on the Journey to their Soul’s Homes®. I almost fell victim to this when we moved.
My soul was calling me to our condo because it has a view of the Potomac River, The Capital and Washington Monument, everyone in the building is friendly, it’s an easy commute for my husband, the Mount Vernon trail is at our doorstep and it’s a short walk to historic Old Town, Alexandria.
But my ego objected because National Airport is two miles away and a plane flies over every couple of minutes. My ego insisted that I wouldn’t be able to meditate or think straight with the noise and that I’d have to be crazy for even considering it.
So, we looked at a ton of other places and while I could see myself living in them, they just didn’t feel as good. So, I asked my soul what to do. I was sure it would say to choose another place because I’d have a hard time hearing it with all that noise.
But to my surprise, my soul said not to worry about the airplanes. I had a really hard time believing my soul, but I’m committed to following its calling, so I did.
We’ve lived here for 3 years and I’m amazed at how the planes feed my soul. I actually feel excited when they fly by because whenever I get on a plane, I feel excited about where I’m going so, I think about all those excited people on the plane. I feel so much more connected to the world because the airport is a five-minute Uber ride away.
But the kicker is how my soul has integrated planes into my meditation by having me visualize throwing emotions that no longer serve me into an airplane’s path and watching those bad feelings break it into a million pieces.
While your soul may not be calling you to live so close to the airport, I hope you can use the direction of your soul to overrule your ego’s objections.
If you feel moved, write about this below because sharing is good for your soul. Next week, we’ll talk about Faking It.
Until next time, I wish you well on your journey.
