Feeling is the Language of Your Soul: Learn to Follow Your Heart!

Your Soul is your True Being. It is the highest evolved part of you that carries the spark of Divine Light that connects you to Source/God/the Universe and every other living being in the Cosmos.

Your Soul guides you along your life's path and by learning to listen to, and to trust, your intuition and feelings you allow your Soul to communicate with you.

When you have the confidence and courage to live your life by following your heart, you will always be on the path that your Soul has chosen for you to follow in this lifetime.

Even when you experience difficult and painful feelings, please know that on a Soul level you have chosen this as part of your learning and evolutionary experience in this lifetime, as have all those involved in the situation. When you fully accept this as your truth, you can free yourself from the illusion of suffering and pain - after all, if you have chosen something for yourself how can it hurt you?

How does it feel to follow your heart?

We all know that feeling when we make a decision that we know is right for us, no matter how big or small. There is a sense of deep satisfaction and excitement as we think about the potential that this new experience holds for us.

You know that it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about your decision, you know deep down that it is the right choice for you - your Heart feels like it could fly like a bird every time you think about it.

When your heart flies, you can be sure that you are on your Soul Path and doing what you are absolutely meant to be doing for your highest good at that moment.


And if I don't?

Anything that creates a sense of heaviness in your gut is a sign that you may be ignoring your inner knowing, your soul.

We all know how it feels when we force ourselves to do things that go against our truest feelings. Whether it's fear, guilt, pride or lack of self-confidence that holds us back, going against our gut feeling can leave us with a sense of unease.

An explosion of colours

Anything that causes a constant feeling of discomfort will eventually become unbearable. You have a few options when dealing with this feeling. You can try to push it down and suppress it, but that might not be the best solution as eventually you'll feel like you need to explode under the weight of it.

Alternatively, you can face it head-on and find the courage to fight your way through it.

It's not easy, but it's worth it to break free from the fears created by your ego mind that keep you in your comfort zone. Yes, there is fear in the unknown, but there is also great potential and endless possibilities.

If you find yourself overcome with fear based thoughts about any kind of new possibility or choice you find yourself having to make, take a moment to breathe and come back to yourself. Always remember that your mind is trying to keep you safe and will do it's very best to create thoughts that will prevent you from moving forward.

If we don't have the courage to re-evaluate our decisions, we might find ourselves in the same situation over and over again. It's a process of learning to follow our hearts and make the choices that are right for us, rather than giving in to our fears.

Have you ever wondered why?


When you go against your heart's truest feelings, your Soul leads you back to the same lessons over and over again, so that you can grow through each experience and become stronger within yourself.


Eventually, the cycle breaks when you can face your fear and do it anyway. (Thank you to Louise L. Hay for teaching me that when I was in my early 20’s!)


Depending on the situation you are facing it can take great courage to follow your heart, even when you know that it’s the right choice for you.

Do you have the courage to take the leap?

You may be thinking about changing careers, leaving your life partner or travelling to an unknown part of the world.

There will always be people around you who understand that you have to do what you have to do for your own good, they will be excited for you, encourage and support you as you move through the changes that life brings.

And there will be those who will try to discourage you. They will question your choices - "Are you sure that's the right career for you? It's so different to anything you've done before!" or "Why would you want to leave him? He loves you so much and you seem so happy" or "What? Why would you want to travel to such a far away place on your own?".

This is the time when you need to find your words to explain your choices in a way that those people can hear, this is not always easy either.

Sometimes it's just not possible, they will be so closed within their fears, for themselves and for you, that they won't be able to see things from your point of view.

It can be challenging to ignore the opinions and thoughts of those closest to you when they can't understand your situation. Even when we try to put ourselves in someone else's shoes, we will always see the situation through the lens of our own past experiences and life story.

The people around you may not understand because they haven't experienced it themselves, they don't know what you've been going through, how long you've been struggling in your current situation. And they don't know what you hold in your Heart.

Choosing to ignore the advice of your parents or closest friends can seem like the hardest thing in the world but the inner knowing that it’s the right choice for you will propel you forwards, fearlessly.

By following your heart, the Universe and your Soul will conspire to bring you to where you are meant to be!


Use your physical body to help you decide!


Our physical body acts as a channel for communication from our Soul. As we’ve seen already, our feelings are one way that our Soul can communicate with us and you can use them to help you make difficult decisions.


When you are faced with a choice or difficult decision, take your time. There is no need to rush.


Take some deep breaths to come back to your natural state of peace and feel into your heart. Reflect on your choices.

Do they bring joy to your heart or cause discomfort in your gut?


Choose to make your heart sing with every choice you make, even if it takes you out of your comfort zone and you won't go wrong!

And remember that any thoughts rooted in fear come from your ego mind and do not reflect your soul's true thoughts.

What will you choose?

When you listen to your feelings, you're listening to your Soul. When you follow your Heart, you're following your Soul Path.

Your Soul's purpose is intertwined with every decision you make and your Heart acts like an inner compass directing you towards authenticity and joy.

Your Soul helps you make important choices in life, or even little ones if you need help deciding!

However, if you feel uncomfortable doing things you know that this is your soul saying, "Hey, listen to me, that's not the right way!"

Amazing things can happen when you choose to follow your Heart. It's like setting off on a great adventure, trusting that your Heart knows the way!

With love & light,
