"It's not just about keeping soul in the body. It's about growing soul, becoming more than we ever were, embodying more of the Greater, or Higher, Self. It requires the willingness to take the creator's leap and bring something new into our world. A myth we requicken brings us creative juice and serves soul. Dreaming, we find the myths we can live by, the stories that put soul at the helm of the ship in our odysseys." – Robert Moss, "Dreaming the Soul Back Home". Reading these powerful words of Robert Moss I feel my soul quicken. I love the idea of growing the soul. As a shaman I work with many who are tenderly holding their souls in need of healing. I work with those who have experienced soul loss and long to be whole and full once again. I work with those who have had trauma in their lives and have never fully recovered. Once the souls needs are tended to it awakens with a desire to be alive, full, vibrant and shining. You can see it in the twinkle of the eye, you hear it in the power of the voice, you feel it in the essence of the person, the spirit radiates with a presence and the soul reaches out and touches all that it meets with grace, compassion, beauty and verve.
Growing one’s soul is no task to take lightly. It takes commitment and focus on the moment. It means not wallowing in story or excuses. It means showing up and being present. Growing the soul takes creative energies to meet the soul’s needs. Growing the soul calls us to take notice to our dreams, to our conversations, and to our actions. Just like an athlete preparing for an event we honor what we feed our soul as every bit of nourishment counts.
The adventure of this lifetime awaits and the healed and whole soul is ready to answer the call. Is it your call to be of service? Is it your call to lead? Perhaps your soul is ready to create and share. The possibilities and potential of one’s soul is endless. The myth of our soul is grand! We can be richer, fuller and brighter than we dare to imagine! And our soul will not disappoint!
