Soul Is Calling...
by Celia Sue Hecht
Nature is a resplendent reflection of the bounty
and beauty of Soul. The cool, damp, dark fragrance of
the moon, the stars at night stirs our Soul from
slumber. Looking into the eyes of love of a good friend,
romantic partner, loved one or newborn babe; a
breathtaking walk in a fertile redwood, spruce, or maple
forest; the calming influence of the waves dancing upon
the shore; the gleeful sounds of sea lions, dolphins,
whales, wolves, owls, the bark of a dog, the purr of a
Today, your Soul is calling you to awaken to who you
really are and each of these examples are glimpses into
the radiant, abundant reality inside each of us.
Yet, you might ask, what is Soul? According to my
friend, Lazaris, channeled by Jach Pursel, our Soul has
Seven Faces. During various phases of our lives, we are
connected (or disconnected) with a different aspect of
our Soul. Most of us are familiar with the face called
The Shadow. This is the aspect of Soul that holds all of
the stuff (i.e. unfelt, stuffed emotions) we didn't know
how to deal with at the time. Did you know that we have
both a Light and a Dark Shadow? How beautiful this is!
Many spiritual teachers tell us that our mission as
lightworkers is to learn how to garner the treasures,
heal and transform the dark aspects of our shadow, or
lower self, to bring our Soul into the light. As we
heal, we become more of who we truly are: a spark of the
Love, Light, Joy, Peace, Honesty of God/ Goddess/ All
Every day, we have the choice to evolve into this
more Real Self. "Or not," says Rannette
Nicholas, founder of OIM, an international,
interdenominational, interfaith intercessory prayer
ministry. "Our relationship with the Spiritual
Universe is our choice, part of the wonder of freewill
that we have been given. How we are loved and trusted!
That we are so respected for this to be our choice! We
can choose each day to surpass the relationship we had
yesterday or today, for there to be more love, more
caring, and more intimacy with our Source, our Creator.
Our Soul is fundamental to this spiritual journey of
We each have obstacles to overcome, blockages and
hurdles. In my book, Aching for Love, Giving Birth to
Soul, which addresses healing the chronic pain and
fatigue condition affecting 16 million Americans, called
fibromyalgia. I discuss with experts how pain separates
us from our very Soul, how hurt, grief, pain, shame, and
loss, must all be healed so that we can become whole,
evolving to be more of our potential as human spiritual
Our Soul calls to us through beauty, our talents,
gifts, love or through crisis and difficulty (most
common), however we will listen. Whatever makes your
heart resonate is an indication of what kind of
connection you have with your Soul. Yet, often when a
trauma happens, such as when a loved one dies, we don't
allow the healing process of the grief cycle to unfold.
Instead, we close off our hearts, shut down, become
numb, hold onto the shock, stuff our pain into our
bodies and become sick. Illness and homelessness are
clues signaling that we have temporary amnesia and are
disconnecting from our Soul. The solution is to
reconnect through art, music, beauty, and nature.
When we can allow ourselves to consciously identify
and feel what we feel, our bodies can become a higher
reflection of our Soul rather than a receptacle for all
of our unfelt, and unwanted emotions.
Ask yourself these questions, without judgment as a
check-in point... Am I at peace or at war with my soul?
Do I know? Am I allowing limiting or negative thoughts
and feelings such as fear or terror, to keep me
paralyzed or am I expressing the full range and
repertoire of my feelings in constructive ways that are
part of my growth path, my spiritual journey? What makes
my heart sing? Am I living joyfully? Am I being an
emissary of love, healing, peace, and light? Am I
choosing to evolve, ascend and awaken to the glory of my
Psychic mediums, intuitive counselors, healers, and
body psychotherapists (such as rebirthers, trauma
release experts, cranial sacral therapists, Reichian,
EMDR, or massage therapists) can assist us to heal our
painful emotions that get stuck in the body, mind and
Psychic mediums (such as John Edward, James Van
Praagh and others lesser known, such as myself), access
the voices of departed loves ones, which gives our lives
comfort, joy and encouragement that (1.) we are not
alone, (2.) death is only a horizon, and (3.) our Soul
Consciously choosing to evolve into the radiant,
magnificent, spiritual beings we came here on Earth to
be, is truly our life's mission and destiny. As we heal
ourselves, and send our new loving consciousness out
into the world, we heal our planet and help shift the
resonance of the world from darkness to light.
To journey on our Soul's Path, becoming and living
the high side of our personality (read about the
enneagram, an ancient system of personality types, which
can be accessed through the work of Helen Palmer and
others), is when all becomes easy, elegant, and fun.
"I hear America singing, its varied carols, I
hear," wrote poet Walt Whitman. Let's take the
actions that will make us all we can be and then surpass
this! This evolution is taking place right here, right
now, and your Soul is asking you to play the part YOU
came here to play. Your Soul is calling you to wake up.
Are you heeding its call? Another way to say this is,
Rise and shine and give God/ Goddess/ All That Is YOUR
own particular, unique Glory! The Glory of YOUR Soul!
