Whatever the name, I believe it’s the angel on your shoulder, the voice that whispers what’s right and true. You know it’s right or true because your heart feels warm and safe, maybe a little fluttery. The message is for your own good in the end, even if there are a few obstacles in the way. That’s not to imply that you must always follow or heed that guidance, you can choose not to, you’ll still eventually get there, but it will be more painful.
I always called it the “oversoul”, don’t know why, I just have. Maybe because it is above me and all around me, hovering over me. I have my own terms and labels for other things too. How does my oversoul speak to me? Usually through dreams symbolically. Usually in thoughts, like you would hear if you talked to yourself, but it’s not you talking, and of course in pictures or just an intense feeling, that becomes so strong, that you must listen.
I’m tight with my oversoul. I listen. I’ve learned to trust and heed the promptings.
I’ve seen the divine hand at work in the instances I’ve lent myself over, and been humbled by the beauty and simplicity in the order of things when I’ve seen beyond the “curtain”. And there are many times I’ve been surprised and occasionally, I’ve laughed out loud. The soul has a fabulous sense of humor. But then again, life can be such a practical joke, yes?
You might wonder how I came to be this way. Am I a “New Age” kook? No. Delusional? No. In truth, I grew up in trauma, which helped open channels of thought and feeling. I grew up in a country and culture where I was an alien, so I had to “tune in” to relate and understand. I couldn’t speak the language so I relied on body language, expressions, and primarily, what we call “gut”.
Add to that spiritual sandwich, my mother was intuitive, so I grew up in an omnipotent household, but it was not used for kindness, but rather manipulation.
She later used her “gift” professionally for money. This brings me to the close of this little piece, and my gift to you, which is: Listen to your own “oversoul”. It’s always there, it’s always true, it’s always the best for you. Don’t betray yourself. You’re bigger and more powerful than you can imagine.
I will be sharing stories, illustrations, true-life events which I’ve experienced, and some lessons I’ve learned over the years. I’ve intensely studied all religions, masters, and books, trying to find the truth and the common ground. I am at peace and have found it now I think. I’m ready to share what I’ve learned.
My following posts will be about these experiences and stories. This is an intro of sorts for you to decide if you’d like to tune in.
