Welcome back to another episode of the Akashic musings podcast. This is episode three of the series on mental health, the term mental health no longer resonates. And this episode is talking about why your relationship with your soul is paramount. Thank you for your patience. As I get this episode out a little bit delayed compared to the others, I hosted my retreat, and it was absolutely phenomenal and wonderful. And I've been giving myself space to integrate and just actualize all of the shifts that came forward during that time on this beautiful mountain in the middle of the Berkshires. So I am back. And I'm here to continue this series on mental health because I am such an advocate for being able to get to know your own unique energy and really seeing yourself for who you are, and accepting yourself for who you are without making yourself wrong without making anything deficient within you. Which is a lot of what we talked about in episodes one and two of this series. Episode One was actually episode 66 on my podcast, there's nothing wrong with you. And then the second part was episode 67, which is how to truly see yourself. So now we are moving on to the discussion of understanding your own unique energy really through the lens of your soul. So our soul is the core of who we are. And any energy that we get to know is very helpful information for us because it really allows our human to get to a state of understanding so that we can navigate this world in a way that makes sense to bring us the highest level of joy and functioning. But our soul actually programs our energy. And our soul dictates the energetic blueprint that we enter this world with what is an energetic blueprint, it's really that map of energy that makes you uniquely you. So all of us are made up of building blocks of energy, but they're all compiled in a different way and different patterns to make us look different, sound different, feel different, act different. So honestly, when you connect with your soul, what you're doing is it's kind of like a one stop shop. When you go to the soul. It fuels everything else, it fuels your physical body. All of those layers I talked about in episode one, that there's nothing wrong with you, the physical layer, the emotional, the mental, the energetic, all of them are programmed and fueled by the spiritual. And I've gone through different phases of spirituality in my life. I originally was going to go to the seminary to become a Presbyterian minister, I went through a period of time where I really didn't connect with God much at all. And really, my belief was wavering for a period of time. And then after I had sepsis eight years ago, it was even before that when my parents were really ill, I started to connect more with spirit again, and start to really cultivate a relationship that was just between me and source me and God, me and spirit and started learning a lot about my own energy and how I am meant to work with the energy that comes through me from the universe. If you'd like more details about that that information, listen to episode 67, which is how to truly see yourself, I talk about how you can start getting an understanding of that for yourself. But when we talk about spirituality in the mental health world, it's very often approached from a space of like a cultural, cultural and contextual perspective. So yes, there are therapists out there who specialize in spiritual counseling or who specialize in Christian counseling. And they have a little bit of a different approach around, really making your connection with source your connection with God, the center, have your recovery from anything that's going on in your life, or any mental health diagnoses. But for the most part, the wealth of mental health professionals are assessing and incorporating spirituality, really, so that they can just kind of know. And some of them, it's just a check off a box to say, Okay, I know what religion they are, right, or I know what they align with when it comes to spirituality. And they really see it as Okay, I want to understand the context that you grew up in, that you live in, that you come from. And it's a great tool to assist with understanding that, but it goes a lot deeper. And that's the part that the traditional mental health world is lacking across the board, which is, there's a difference between, okay, I understand your faith, from a cultural and contextual perspective, like I get that that's why you may think this way, that's why you may act this way, etc. But that's still cultural and contextual. spiritual practice is really based in organized religion, for the most part. And so you're, you're kind of characterizing people based on certain communities that have become organized by human beings, rather than this intrinsic, intimate relationship with your soul. And every single person has a unique, completely different, intrinsic, intimate relationship with God with source with their higher self, whatever feels appropriate for them. So what's really, really crucial is to get to an understanding of what is this deep, intimate relationship that you have with God that is uniquely your own, that has characteristics that nobody else could ever understand that's really intimate to you. That's the level of softness and intimacy and depth that we get to when we explore this part of ourselves. I have to tell you, especially as I kind of went back and forth in my faith for years, one thing that I learned very, very clearly and boldly when I entered this spiritual awakening, when I connected with spiritual communities, is that I'm a very educated woman. And I have been, I've seen a lot with 20 years, as a therapist, I've experienced a lot I've experienced a lot in my own life as a human being with trauma, etc, right? The healthiest, most stable, brilliant, outside of the box creative, life changing, game changing world changing people I have ever met in my life has been the people on the spiritual journey have been people who hold their unwavering relationship with their soul or with God, or with their higher self, as their number one priority, as absolutely paramount. And when that is central to them, their lives go so much smoother, they're completely authentic, they're completely raw, because they completely see themselves through the eyes of God, which is always from a place of you are precious, I am in awe of you, all of these little unique nuances of you are, they're beautiful, they're quirky, they're fun, they, they make you different and creative, and they touch this planet in a way that allows you to paint it with a brush that no one else holds. Right? And, and don't we want to make that, that art with our lives, and feel it and allow other people to experience it and receive it and, and, and grow because of it, giving other people permission to be themselves and it's an unfolding process. It's not one that's going to happen immediately. And I've said that in previous episodes in this series, which is that, you know, creating a relationship with your soul is one that requires trust. And that trust builds over time. A lot of people have
Speaker 1 9:47
trauma bonds with God or anger at the universe for things that have happened in their lives lives and I do have a previous episode actually on how to know if you have a trauma bond with God Because I had one myself, I had one myself. And that was something that once I healed that I was really able to step into a much higher level of power and sovereignty in my life. And I can honestly say that I've never been at this level of sustainable self love and acceptance and appreciation ever, in my life. And I have always wanted to get here. And that's why it's so important to me to share this with other people. Because I'm not just seeing this in myself, I'm seeing this transformation in all of my clients in my family members in those who are closest to me. And it's beautiful, because a lot of these people who followed me for my traditional therapy practice into this work have completely opened up a new level of themselves. So I asked you, how do you sit with your soul? How do you create a relationship, you can do it through prayer. And if you don't know how to pray, just sit down and ask for God to come into the room with you and have a conversation or just sit there and start to chat into the space around you with the intention of connecting, and you will start to feel it you will start to heal it or or I'm sorry, start to feel it and start to hear it over time. You're not going to get an answer immediately, all the time, but you may, you may get an answer right away. So just give yourself space to start to speak to the depths of you. And that's what your soul is, it is the absolute deepest part of you, your raw essence, aside from all of the conditioning, and the stories and the events that have happened in your life, etc, it's, it's really being able to peel back all of these human layers and saying, This is who I really am. And it's so freeing to be able to do that. The other way is to go into nature. One way that I used to love to do it was to we used to go camping all the time when I was younger, and I used to lay under the stars and just gaze at the universe, just gaze up at the stars for hours, and connect with God that way. And some people do it in nature, just going on hikes or sitting in nature. And they prefer to just connect with Mother Earth as a spirit, which is also fine. There's no rules. This is your unique relationship. Some people connect through just their heart space. And they say I just want to connect to my heart space. That's where my soul lives. You know, it's the intention that really matters here. So I encourage you to sit in prayer or sit in meditation or go into nature. Some people also find this through music, their music, taking them into a completely different dimension. So don't judge yourself or feel like there's any requirements around how you're meant to do this. And if it's something that you'd like some guidance on, or you want somebody just tell you, this is how your energy operates. And this is how you're being called to connect with your soul. You can certainly book a one on one with me I have 20 minute individual sessions as starter sessions for people who haven't connected with me before and there are 50 bucks. You can find a link in the description of this video or this podcast episode I should say. And and I can absolutely guide you in that way. So thank you so much for tuning in.
