Every day is a learning experience. We’re learning new technology or new information, new love, through pain and suffering, relationships, kids, all of life’s little lessons. But I feel it’s the Soul Lessons in life we must pay more attention to.
When we forget how to learn what life has to teach us, we resist life. We “check out”. This leads to unwanted symptoms, habits, behavior and disease.
Some of the most important lessons in life are Soul Lessons. Soul lessons are not often a place we go to find what life’s message is teaching us. When we don’t look deeper into our lives and see that we are not just a biological accident, it limits us! When we think about the soul in a divine way and when we think about where we came from, our challenges, our birth, our family we are born into, health issues, and how our soul is is truly a part of all of this, its pretty clear there is a higher purpose to our existence. If there’s is not, why are we here on planet Earth? It’s so easy to become depressed, unhappy, stay sick, fatigued, and feel stuck in life when you are not connected to your soul being. Life is always teaching us powerful soul lessons and through symptoms our body is getting our attention. We just need to listen! Here are some POWERFUL, short but sweet, Soul Lessons to listen to.
– Agreeing To Be Here
Are you present in life? When we “check out” of life we lose personal power. This leads to long term depression, unhappiness, binge eating, weight gain, digestive issues and more. So many people are walking around this world not present. Their just living the day to day grind. Agreeing to be here is the first step toward personal empowerment. When we lose personal power, we lose metabolic power.
Un-forgiveness can lead to anger, resentment, rage, disappointment, blame and a deeper sadness. These emotions stuck in the body will create a psychological stress response. This chronic low level stress will cause the body to increase insulin, increase cortisol, gain weight, have trouble sleeping, and poor digestion and more.
– Slowing Down
Slowing down is finding our natural pace. It’s trusting in life, relaxing into the unknown, listening and noticing. We live in an era of there’s “Not enough time” or ” If there were just a few more hours in the day”. Our world is fast paced. This leads to stress which again leads to excess cortisol. Excess cortisol levels affect the clock in our brain and nervous system and it will speed up time. The more we put our bodies in survival mode, the faster we move and more the wisdom of life speaks to us through symptoms.
– Reclaiming The Divine Feminine.
Society has defined feminine as skinny and pretty. This makes girls/women feel limited and they contract. It doesn’t give women the opportunity to be seen as who they really are and they begin to lose their identity and have lower self esteem which can lead to eating disorders. Reclaiming The Divine Feminine means finding harmony, beauty in all things, love, cooperation, care for the world, a natural connectedness to our body wisdom and emotions, nourishing the body, sensuality, softness and rhythm. The divine Feminine means relax, open and surrender.
– Reclaiming The Divine Masculine.
Reclaiming the divine masculine means allowing men to find their true purpose, explore their freedom, feel the rage, find the feminine side and discover their masculine heart. Men need a purpose in life in order to live a whole life. This sometimes is one of man’s biggest challenges. Health suffers when a man is not in alignment with the truth of who he is, and symptoms can arise including weight gain.
– Embracing A Positive Spirituality
A negative, punishing, or fearful spiritual or religious belief system can easily generate chronic low level stress. It leads to shame and guilt which leads to self abuse, negative habits, and even negative thoughts around food, and body. Is your religion or non-religion affecting you? Creating a positive spirituality can have profound healing on the soul.
– Speaking The Truth
Speaking the truth sets us free. It gives us authenticity. Energy can be increased and weight lifted off your shoulders when we do. When we are not speaking the truth love doesn’t flow and we contract.
– Healing Our Sexuality
Who are we as sexual beings? And why is there so much shame around the subject of sex, so much fear and uncomfortableness? We are built for sex. It is biologically necessary. When sexual energy flows metabolism increases. Pleasure heals us. Our connection with food and body is very similar to our connection to sexuality.
– Claiming Our Power
What are we here to do? What are we here to experience? What do we have to give as our gift ? What can we create, receive, express? What’s the higher purpose to our life? Sometimes we’re not supposed to fix our symptoms but to be aware of them, digest them and discover our power, our gift. From there are symptoms tend to relax. The more we reclaim and inherit our gifts and personal power, the more we embody. Full embodiment is full metabolism. It increases the relaxation response and that is where real healing begins. Look away from your weaknesses and toward your strengths.
Soul lessons are asking us to heal on a much deeper level. They have a powerful and direct connection with our issues around food and unwanted health symptoms. When we slow down and listen to life’s lessons we become more aware of what it is teaching us. We grow. We heal spiritually and biologically.
“When we evolve spiritually, we evolve metabolically.” – Marc David
