💫 Soul Coaching: Day 7


So many realizations and answers from the universe today! Focused on the question, "Why am I here?" in a general sense, like why am I alive? As I was focusing on the question, driving to the gym, the song "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles came on the radio, which is significant to me because it was the closing song to my acting showcase at AMDA (studied performing arts before I took up healing arts). I also found out last night that my friend, who played my son in the scene in that very showcase will be featured and producing a reality TV show. I have some amazing former classmates overall. Hi, AMDA Fam, if you're reading! Anyway, I took this song synchronicity to mean that I'm meant to continue to create art and humor to some capacity, maybe as part of the healing/teaching experience or separately. Have to meditate on this more. I also asked the question, "Why am I here?" more specifically about my hometown as I was between sets on the thigh adductor machine. (Bad gym etiquette, I know, but there were 2 and the other wasn't occupied.) The answer came right away -- to do exactly what I'm doing. Take care of my physical health, experience some stability, and feel my own life rhythm for a while. Get to know myself even more deeply and authentically. Also, for the more general inquiry about why I'm alive, I've received so many comments and messages in the past week from friends and strangers (well, soul tribe peeps -- so "strangers" isn't how I feel about them) encouraging me to keep going, letting me know that what I'm doing is appreciated and having an impact. It moved me so much that I shed a few tears. So, thank you for that reciprocation. It was unexpected and healing for me. You know who you are. 😉

Soul Mission Statement (a work in progress): "My soul's mission is to experience the deepest sorrow to the most expansive joy and transmute the human condition into the beauty of art, the fun of comedy, and the wisdom of a sage."

What's yours?

Last day of Air Week! See you tomorrow for the beginning of Water Week!
