Soul Exploration Journey

This weekend I am very fortunate to be offering a Soul Discovery workshop at the Bliss B4 Laundry Retreat. For those who are unable to join me in person, I share with you the insights I discovered:

SOUL is defined as:
The spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.

Our Soul: The root of our personal values, seat of our self-image, passion, purpose & whole being. Where we feel fulfilled. Our higher self & core. Our gut instinct. The I AM & where we finally transcend the Ego. 

You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body. - C.S. Lewis

This leads us to discover that we are truly spiritual & divine beings experiencing a human life. So, if we are this, how can we reconnect with it, explore it, communicate with it, express it & dance within the magic of it? 

The ultimate answer: Pause, Breathe, Listen & Love. 

The soul is the truth of who we are. – Marianne Williamson

So, what is your truth? What would you dare to dream if you knew without a doubt, you could not fail? What inspires you? Excites you? Uplifts you & energizes you? What do you absolutely love & always talk about? What lights you up? 

This is your soul singing to you. Its voice can be a mere whisper, a gentle nudge & gut instinct or even a warrior cry! 

Your soul is not a passive or a theoretical entity that occupies a space in the vicinity of your chest cavity. It is a very positive, purposeful force at the core of your being. It is that part of you that understands the impersonal nature of the energy dynamics in which you are involved, that loves without restriction and accepts without judgment. - Gary Zukav

Exercises to connect with your soul: 

Breathe: Take time throughout your day to pause, breathe & feel into where you are in the moment. This can take 1 minute or 10. Depending on where you are & how much time you have available. Next time you are waiting in line at the grocery store, pause & take a moment to reconnect to your soul


When we recognize all of the blessings, love & support we already contain within our lives, more blessings, love & support are provided to us by the Universe. Take time to recognize the amazing soul-filled life you already have! Create a list of 100 things you are grateful for. 


The ultimate way to reconnect with & rediscover our soul is through the simple act of unconditional love. Write yourself a deep, passionate, heart-felt love letter. Use beautiful paper, a special pen & seal it in a pretty envelope. Place it somewhere for you to read in the future.
