“Does your soul have a message for you today?”
That was the question the meditation teacher asked during session.
It turns out my soul did. It often does, when I’m paying attention.
Usually, the messages are so simple I almost miss them. Or I judge them. Or second guess them. That morning, I decided to just shut up and receive what was given to me. By my soul. Yep. I wasn’t judging it, or questioning whether it really was my soul guiding me, nor was I second guessing it, “Are you sure that’s all?” or “What am I supposed to do with that?”
It was pretty simple. I got quiet. Inhale. Exhale. Body against the chair. Sink in. Inhale. Exhale. When thoughts came that started to take me somewhere else, I floated back to my breath. Inhale. Exhale.
Then, I asked the question of my soul. “Do you have a message for me?”
Inherently, I knew to trust the first thing that came. And, here it was.
“You already have everything you need within you to receive the answers you seek.
Yes, it’s good to seek knowledge and experiences and connections that enrich your life. But, the truest answers to your deepest questions are not discovered externally. Those are found within your own inner and higher wisdom, through your direct connection to the greater knowledge that is source, God and universe. This is your truth, always.”
So simple. And, such a great reminder to trust. And, to not complicate things by seeking outside of ourselves.
Certainly that’s not a new concept, that you have everything you need within you. But, it was the message I needed to hear, right then.
The next morning I asked the question again and got another answer, equally as simple and perfect for what I needed.
That’s the beauty of this short and sweet daily practice. Each time the answer is different, the message is appropriate for what you need right then, on the day in that moment.
It happens when you’re in your body, as your breath connects you to being fully present and the mind is focused on listening and being open to receiving.
In that space, with the curiosity of a child, simply ask your soul what it wants you to know, in that moment on that day.
What’s interesting is that you can tell when it’s your soul speaking. If it sounds or feels like judgment or punishment, it’s your ego, not your soul. Soul speak comes from your highest wisdom and you know it when you hear it.

What a profound way to create the day, on message. On your soul’s message. It paves the way for your divine purpose to unfold.
Simply, reverently, freely.
