The HeART of Listening to Your Soul

Posted On September 24, 2020

What if you had an inner guide planted deep inside of you? Whenever you had a question, needed affirmation, or wanted someone or something to show you the way, what if there was a place inside of you that you could consult?

You do have a source of wisdom. We all do. It’s our soul. It’s planted in our hearts like a computer chip.  All we have to do is listen and seek our soul’s divine guidance.

At the end of his earthly life, Jesus promised he’d send us the Holy Spirit—the Advocate—who’d teach us everything, including how to live (John 14:26).

As a result, God gave us an on-board computer that’s part of our DNA. The soul—embedded in our human hearts—connects us with God’s Divine Heart. And with practice, we can learn the art of listening to our souls.

In the article, Listening When the Soul Speaks, Emily Madill, writes, “I believe we all have inner wisdom and a guidance system that will help steer us on the best path that sits well with who we are. It’s an inherent trait.”  

Madill offers these suggestions to help us listen to our inner GPS:

1. Get Quiet.  Give yourself the gift of shutting off the world for at least 10 minutes each day. Befriend silence. Rest in it as you create the inner space to listen to your soul.

2. Be Playful. Use your imagination during your quiet time. Let God’s wisdom speak to you. Have fun with the Creator as your heart becomes your Divine guide.

3. Take Action. When your soul gives you loving guidance, take baby steps to integrate the wisdom into your life. Our hearts are always leading us, and eventually, our feet catch up.

Is Your Image of God Big Enough?

God is always initiating and moving in our lives, his Divine love drawing us closer toward wholeness, inner peace, and balance. Our job is to listen and determine where and how God is guiding us, and then respond by following the Spirit’s lead.
