Evolving Soul Practice This Embodiment Practice Helps You Move Beyond the Narrow Confines of Seeing People as Their Outer Roles to Recognize Their Beautifully Evolving Soulful Essence
Each time I do this practice, I feel a deeper sense of compassion and empathy for everyone in my life. I invite you to try this practice, and to discover how it can nourish and expands your experience of yourself and the people around you. Western culture does little to foster authentic connection and feelings of true community and belonging among people. Many talk about feeling lonely and disconnected, even if they have a loving family, supportive friends, and meaningful work they enjoy. This practice is a powerful antidote to the sense of disconnection sparked by our fast-paced, cyber drenched world.
Evolving Soul Practice...
With each person you encounter in a day, tune into who they are as an Evolving Soul. Imagine their spark of soul fire as they were before they were born into a physical body. Maybe you'll see them as a vibrant spark or a sphere of light. Use whatever imagery resonates with you.
Then imagine all the stages of their life--past, present, and future. Imagine and feel into who they were as a newborn, a young child, a teenager, a young adult, a mature adult, and a wise elder. And then again imagine them as the spark of soul fire, completing this cycle of creativity and learning, gracefully leaving their physical body, burning brighter as a soul than ever before. Take a moment now and do this practice for the people who are near and dear to your heart; your beloved, your family, and close friends. This practice often evokes sweet feelings of tenderness for each person, and compassion for the challenges they deal with in day-to-day life. You may also become aware of the growth that has been unfolding throughout their life, and can see not only who they are now, but who they are becoming.
