“Life is long, time is short.”
I don’t really care for the expression, “life is short”. I understand those words are somehow meant to bring us back to the present and to be in the moment, appreciating it for all it is. But I much prefer “life is long, time is short.” For me, that is a reminder that the moment we are in may quickly be gone, to make the most of it And to look forward to the next.
What do I mean by “living a soul satisfied life”, It means feeling joyous, it means feeling bright and warm, it’s comforting from the inside out. It’s the days when you wake up with a smile on your face thankful just for the day that you’ve been blessed with. It’s praying to God, the angels, the universe and knowing that your prayers are heard and that the energy and love your sending out is coming back to you. For me, that is satisfying to my soul.
What satisfies your soul? What feels happy from the inner core of your body, your heart, your soul? It’s different from the feeling of getting that new outfit that is oh-so flattering and you feel great wearing it. I’m not taking anything away from those feelings because I love the way I feel when I buy new clothes, I love the way I feel when I get a new book, I love the way I feel when I get my hair done and it looks better that day than it will for weeks to come.
Satisfying to our soul is a far greater happiness that comes from a much deeper space within.
To be connected with your life purpose, to make a positive difference in your job, or your relationships. When you know you are connected and making a positive difference, your soul is happy, you feel a fullness different from the fullness of when we feed our body. Feeding your soul is crucial to creating a satisfied soul. It’s when you spend time with your best friend reminiscing and laughing and it is sheer joy, or it might be when you have a day to yourself to sit snuggled up in your favorite plush blanket with a new book. It may be observing a loved one laugh in pure delight and you feel your insides smile.
I can’t say I am completely living a soul satisfied life yet, but I am in the process of it. It may always be a process. Perhaps there are plenty of people who can say their souls are satisfied, for most of us however, I believe we are all somewhere along that path. I am aware of when my soul is not feeling satisfied, I become easily agitated, I am moodier, I feel heightened negativity surround me, sometimes coming from me & rippling out. I see how my negativity influences others & it all feels very unsatisfying to my soul.
That’s when I tap (EFT), I trace my meridians following Donna Eden’s video, I meditate, do yoga, pray, I write, read, swim, anything to shift and clear the energy and get back to feeding my soul.
What feeds your soul? I would love to hear from you
