The words ‘spirit’ and ‘soul’ can have different meanings to everyone but essentially they are referring to our basic identity and the things that make us who we are at a core level.
Each one of us is completely unique with our own set of needs, desires, values and beliefs, which make up our true authentic self. When we live in alignment to this we are able connect to our passion and purpose, which then creates a sense of inner peace, true happiness and fulfilment.
Unfortunately though, many of us struggle to fully honour our internal calling due to external expectations and the need to fit in and be accepted by the world around us. Instead of being who we really are, we end up ‘trying’ to be who we think we ought to be, which then causes conflict within.
This constant pull between what our soul is calling out for and what is expected of us can then manifest in negative ways, such as anger, frustration, resentment and dissatisfaction, all of which can take away from our happiness and peace. This is why if we want to live a life of balance and bliss we have to live in alignment to who we really are.
So Goddess, are you being your true authentic self? Are you living the life that you really want and deserve? Do you feel you honour yourself or are you always trying to fit into someone else’s box? Do you allow yourself to be manipulated or persuaded into another way of thinking or feeling or do you stand strong in your beliefs? Do you constantly criticise yourself or are you proud of the person you are?
Below are some suggestions to help you gain more clarity and understanding when working with the facet of Spirit & Soul…

Explore The Core Lesson
Every facet of the Jewel of Life system has an associated Core Lesson of Self, which when honoured helps us to create true happiness and fulfilment. The core lesson of Spirit & Soul is self-acceptance because when we learn to accept ourselves we are able to live in true alignment to who we are.
We often do things that conflict with our own core feelings, beliefs, values and desires because we want to be accepted by other people. But really our own acceptance is all that really matters. If we can’t learn to accept who we are then we will never find true peace and happiness.
