Building a Bridge to the Soul

Living a soul-inspired life is not easy. The tasks of everyday living can create conflict and demands that distract us from the subtle whispers of spirit. Inherent in our humanity is a gulf between our personality nature and our highest potential of being in the world. Through intention and effort we can build a bridge to the soul, enabling us to live a life more divinely inspired. There are three regular practices that facilitate the building of your soul bridge (understood in Sanskrit as the Antahkarana). These three are Meditation (Thought), Study (Word), and Service (Action).

Thought

The soul speaks in whispers and is most readily heard in the silence between thoughts. Learning to quiet the busy ‘monkey mind’ is an essential step to enable the voice of the soul to be heard. A regular meditative practice is essential to learning to quiet and steady the mind so that it can be receptive to the voice of the soul. Explore our meditation tools.

Word

Training the higher (abstract) mind supports developing soul consciousness. The soul expresses through our intuition – often in symbols and abstract thought. Learning to discern between intuition and personality is necessary to building the bridge to the soul. Our quality spiritual education tools are designed to foster your higher mind.

Action

What we do matters. Soulful action (service) is any action taken as a result of prompting by the soul. Service can be as small as a soul-impulsed kind word to a stranger or as immense as dedicating your entire life energy and resources to soulful work in the world. Small acts of service are training. We’ll give you ideas – practice them often.

Mindful Heart Astrology ~ Pisces

Pisces signifies the end of a phase and synthesizes the characteristics of the preceding eleven signs. As a water sign, Pisces has an emotional or strong feeling quality to it. This sensitivity can show up in one of two ways. There are those who keep a great deal hidden inside, perhaps focused on their inner journey or intent on maintaining their privacy. These folks are often perceived as shy and reticent since, for them, things percolate and are reflected upon below the surface. Yet there are others ...

Mindful Heart Astrology – Aquarius Imagines

Aquarius is a sign that frequently suggests something “future oriented” or visionary, perhaps even idealistic. I’ve often wondered whether people like John Lennon are actually a little ahead of their time. They seem to think and act differently from the masses, and stand out as being unusual or rebellious. This quality is so firmly rooted in some people that they have very little concern about acceptance. Their beliefs are so deep that their reality, or vision of what could be, is not a question for them. They simply have the need...
