Who are your listening to?” In your journey to physically manifest your soul 100% of the time, you will hear, see or sense things. Sometimes this is your soul. But until you learn to identify the source, it can also be your mind playing tricks on you. As I have written elsewhere, your mind has been in charge of your body for your entire life. While you now want your soul in charge, your mind has other ideas. Your mind has no interest in giving up power. So how do you tell the difference between your soul and your mind? Here are some ways to tell the difference between your mind and your soul.
Your soul is quiet. Your soul isn’t shouting in your ear: if something is this loud it is one of the spirits hanging around you, who is literally shouting in your ear. Be wary of any voice that is “loud and clear.” Soul communication comes when we are quiet, focussed on our soul, and our minds are not chattering. That gentle nudge or brief flash of insight — that was your soul.
Your soul is kind. Your soul will never criticize you nor point out your flaws or shortcomings. Your soul is never going to point out how you should have handled things differently. She or He is only going to encourage you.
Your soul is clear. Our souls are very clear and direct in their communication with us. If you get contradictory answers, that is not your soul. If you get “kinda, maybe, sort of” answers that isn’t your soul either.
Your soul is in the present moment. Your soul does not rehash the past. What is done is done in your soul’s mind, and only this moment is important. The actions you take now (the actions guided by your soul) will create the future your soul desires for you. So if some internal voice is taking you out of the present moment, be careful.
Your soul is consistent. If your soul gave you information, that information will not change. If you are getting “guidance” that is opposite to what your soul told you, this isn’t your soul. This is your mind or the spirits around you trying to separate you from your soul and cause problems in your life.
Your soul would will always keep you safe. If you are hearing or sensing something that is encouraging you to take a physical risk — STOP! Your mind and the spirits around you cannot actually harm you. But they can and will encourage you to do things that put you and the things you care about at risk. In other words, your mind and these spirits will set you up to cause harm to yourself. If it seems risky or dangerous, that is not your soul.
As you progress in your journey to become the physical manifestation of your soul — the prerequisite to having your twin soul relationship — there are going to be many voices telling you how to live your life. Learning to tell the difference between what is your soul and what isn’t will save you a lot of aggravation and heartache.
