“It is worse to stay where one does not belong at all than to wander about lost for a while and looking for the psychic and soulful kinship one requires.”
I stayed in the apartment that made my heart shrink. I had to go on walks to gain sustenance before I could go back in. I was more into figuring out what was broken than actually fixing it, and I missed my signs. My heart got lost. It was hard to get out of bed. But my coping mechanisms and practices served me well and I stayed functional. It was when he finally set me free, ended what wasn’t working, that I woke up in a strange land. We are a culture that is afraid to be lost. But it’s needed.
The courage to go deep into the forest of our being, the recesses of our hearts, is what allows us to find our truths. We must learn with the inner substance, our grit, our being. When we have friends and family who are given or chosen that believe in our dreams, that see the mettle of our soul, we are given extra sets of wings.
MANTRA: I trust that my soulkin are seeking me even now. That I will know when they show up and that their psychic waves will carry me as I will carry them.
JOURNAL: Do you belong where you are right now? How do you know? What fears do you carry about being lost? What courage do you need to let yourself go deep into your own forest?
These Soulful Sunday blogs go out weekly on Sundays to be used as a place to step back from the hustle and bustle and explore what your soul might be saying to you. Some folks use these as journal prompts and let loose amidst pages. Some folks bring them to the kitchen table and jam over coffee. Do you, boo.
