Good morning Joseth, good morning Roy.
Roy: Joseth, how do I get to the position of knowing what my soul wants to experience?
Joseth: Roy, you know when you are there, because your life flows easily. When you begin to have difficult situations going on in your life, you know that you have moved away from your soulís purpose.
R: What I really want to know is, how I can know what that purpose is before hand, without going through the difficulties.
J: Roy, have you ever struggled to remember the title of a song, and could not remember no matter how hard you tried? For the same reason, you will not remember what it is your soul desires, until you stop trying to force the issue. The title to the song comes to you the moment you give up looking for it.
R: So why does it not come to me when I try to remember.
J: You are in the act of trying, as long as you try, that is what you will get back from the universe, trying.
R: So, if I would not try then, how do I get what I want?
J: Simply by being aware of it and then letting it go. If it doesnít come to you right away, then donít beat yourself up with it. The harder you try the more you drive it away.
R: So how does this relate to my soulís purpose?
J:, You have built within, a devise or control mechanism that is there for that purpose, itís called intuition. Intuition is real, itís not made up, the sole purpose of intuition is to guide you within the "soulís" purpose. If you sincerely want to follow your souls purpose, develop and listen to your intuition. Most of you are pretty good at it. But it is done at a subconscious level. Become aware of intuition and you will bring it to the conscious level and be able to use it effectively and with purpose. Lean to trust it.
R: Is intuition that little voice, that I hear every once in awhile?
J: Yes, but donít struggle to hear it, simply be aware that it is there and notice it when it speaks.
R: I have tried that before and things didnít work out for me when I went with my intuition.
J: You went with a thought about your intuition, Roy not the intuition itself, after your mind started working on it. That is why I said "learn" to trust your intuition. You will make these mistakes if you try too hard. Once you start thinking about it, it is already too late, your ego has taken over. The mind is your ego, intuition comes from your soul.
R: So how do I identify my ego (thought) from my intuition.
J: You just said it, thought verses feeling. A feeling, an awareness that you suddenly have, a revelation, that will be your intuition. You will feel it. You will not think about it. Learn to distinguish thoughts from feelings.
R: Joseth, is that the struggle that I have sometimes when I write these pages. When I listen to my thoughts the writing slows down and gets confused. Other times it just flows and I am not aware of what I am writing or going to write about.
J: Yes, now you got it. Intuition flows, thinking is very turbulent and confusing. It is a struggle. Intuition flows in the same direction and is non turbulent. It is the outpouring of the soul. When you allow yourself to flow with it, you are carried harmoniously with it. There is no thought to intuition, it is a feeling, a natural flow of energy. This is what you pay attention to, if you want to discover your lifeís purpose. Go with the flow!
