5 Ways to Brighten Your Soul’s Inner Drive

awaken your soul

Many people are in a perpetual state of wandering around, looking for the “next big thing”, whether it’s in business, work, or life, and never take time to do their soul work.

Soul work, to me, involves going within and getting down and dirty with the emotional and mental blocks which become problematic. Everyone has stuff in their lives, no matter how successful they are in their life.

Getting underneath those blocks and blasting them out takes time. In doing so, though, you find what you are passionate about in work and life. It’s almost a miraculous event, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.

With that in mind, here are five ways to brighten your soul’s inner drive:

1. Meditation

It’s been around for centuries. Smarter people than myself have found great benefits from quieting their minds, connecting with their breath, and letting go of their worries or concerns. Meditation definitely involves a mind-body-spirit connection which, for some, might be a little too heavy.

Yet when you take a look at a lot of successful businessmen and women, many of them will raise their hands in agreement that meditation helps slow them down. Connecting with what you desire to do with your life comes from your soul. Let meditation help you sense which direction to go. Take a few minutes each day, quiet your mind, and see what happens in your life.

2. Journaling

I’ve found this to be of immense help through the years. It has allowed me to do a “mind dump” on paper, with pen in hand, and get whatever is bugging me out in these journals. To be clear, you do not have to be a writer or creative in order to do this at all.

This process helps to shed a light upon what you truly desire in your life. How? It removes the blocks through your own processing of emotions and feelings which keep you and I going around in life on a hamster wheel. Get a pad, grab a pen, and start your journaling journey right now.

“Journal writing is a voyage to the interior.” – Christina Baldwin

3. Exercise

Once again, there are infinite studies which indicate moving your body on a daily basis has incredible benefits. Not only is it great for the physical attributes, yet exercise can alter thought patterns within your own brain. Yoga, weight training, running, a brisk walk, Tai Chi, or some other type of exercise can work. This helps to light up your own soul through moving the body.

4. Community

Gather around like-minded people and let them support you. People find attending religious services worthwhile. Others get together through MeetUps or some other form of community-gathering events. Introverts might find this a real stretch to do. Getting out of your comfort zone, though, is definitely good for your soul. It’s amazing what happens when putting yourself around like-minded people.

5. Nature

It’s pretty easy to just look outside a window and see either blue skies and sunshine, or cloudy skies and rainfall. Not metaphorically, OK, but real-time nature. I know when I allow myself an opportunity to get out among trees, mountains, flowers, animals and fresh air, it’s a freeing sensation.

It feels like I’m as free as the birds which fly above my head. In essence, nature is a true connecting force with your own soul. There is a rhythm and energy within nature which reflects beauty. You can see your own beauty in nature, too.

 “To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure, is the most perfect refreshment.” – Jane Austen 

There are numerous other paths toward brightening your soul’s inner drive. It might come from attending conferences or having a heart-to-heart talk with your loved one. These are simply five starting points for you to consider.

Is there a spiritual component to all of this? I choose to believe so. When you can connect on a deeper level with your soul’s purpose, then you can engage these five suggestions and move forward.

Listen to your intuition, your soul, and follow its guidance. Amazingly, you will find yourself on a journey which will be more beautiful and fulfilling than you could ever have believed.

Have you ever sent a text message only to have it misinterpreted by the person reading it? Happens all the time.

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned About Personal Growth

When you look back on your life, what do you want to think about? Do you plan to reminisce on all of the good things that have happened and how they shaped who you are today? Or would you rather remember all of the bad decisions, challenging experiences, and mistakes made that hurt or wasted a portion of your life?

In my opinion, I think it is important to reflect on both. While it’s important to remember the hardships we’ve been through in our lives – without them we wouldn’t be where we are now. There are 3 very specific areas that I feel have helped me grow in a personal sense more than anything else in my life so far. 

These aren’t simple lessons in a book or a lecture that you can just absorb and apply to your life. These are things that I’ve learned through experience and reflection, and I’m still learning and growing today.

1. We determine how much we’re worth by what we think about ourselves, others, and life in general.

This might seem like a pretty obvious lesson in life but it’s actually one of the most important because we can determine our own worth by how we think about ourselves and the world around us. If you’re looking for success in any kind of business or social setting (dating), then I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t matter if you have 10 billion dollars or not – people are still going to judge you based on your thoughts and beliefs alone.

What determines our value isn’t necessarily what we do with our lives (which is often based on luck) but whether or not we believe that ‘our work’ is worthy or not in some sort of grand scheme or universe. We may not always be able to control what happens in our lives, but we can always control how we value ourselves and others.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

2. You don’t have to change your habits or personality just because someone else doesn’t like it – their opinions are THEIRS alone.

This is another one of those lessons that people tend to pick up on a little bit late in life, but if anything that makes its importance even worse! Basically, there’s going to come a time when you’re going to meet someone who has certain expectations of you as a person…but these expectations might not be realistic due to their motivations and personal beliefs. For example, sometimes parents might expect you to be a lawyer or doctor because that’s what they believe is best for their child.

However, this isn’t the case for everyone and so maybe your passion lies in music or writing novels. In this example, if you were also pressured into becoming a doctor – then there would obviously be some kind of conflict going on within yourself as a person. You should never have to give up something that you want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it! The reason why we’re put onto this Earth is to make our own choices and go after our OWN dreams instead of letting others determine what we can and cannot do with our lives .

3. You can’t change your life until you accept that you need to make a change.

When I was younger, I thought that this lesson would be pretty obvious – but as I got older, it really made me appreciate the fact that there are always different ways of perceiving our lives. For example, if someone wants to become rich and famous one day – their mind might simply overshadow any other possibility in their head because they feel like this is what they NEED to do right now.

However, this isn’t always true within our own lives because we think about things too literally instead of having an open mind. If you want to achieve success in any kind of business or social setting (dating) then you should be willing to try out different things instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want something, then it’s up to YOU to actually go after it – nobody else is going to give it to you!

The three lessons above are some of the main things I want to pass on to everyone because they’ve come at an important time in my life where I need to start thinking about others instead of only myself. It’s great if we can learn to love ourselves first before anything else, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect everyone around you even though they might be your friends and family members!
