Soul is our essence, the non-physical part of us. It arises deep within the abdomen, just below the navel. Inside the body, there is an open channel that goes from where the soul arises below the navel all the way up to the head; the soul moves up and down this open channel deep within us.
Although the soul resides inside the body, it is not part of the body. It is separate. When the mind is empty and all thoughts are gone, the light of the soul radiates outwards and shines on everything it touches.
The soul is extremely beautiful, peaceful, and powerful. Yet, many of us are shut off from the soul and are hardly aware of its existence. However, if we are curious about our true nature; if we seek inner harmony and peace, we can learn to recognise the soul within us.
Here are some things to look for:
You might see light that you don´t normally see: white light; golden light; a cluster of small, silver lights; crystal clear light. It might be a flash of light, or it may last for a while, but however the light appears it is unmistakable because the light of the soul is like nothing you have ever seen before. When you see the light of the soul, you will feel beautiful inside because the light you are seeing is emanating from within you. It is the light of your soul that you are seeing before you.
You might experience that the world seems to fall away. Your thoughts and emotions cease to exist; your body no longer exists. There is simply awareness, pure awareness, vast, expansive, free. This is your essence. It is what you are. You can remain in the peaceful state of pure awareness as long as you wish, but the instant you start to think, you will go back to your mind.
You have an inner knowing about something. You can´t explain how you know, you just know. It might be a gentle knowing, or it might be a strong knowing. Either way, it´s a knowing that is certain. It doesn´t go away. This kind of knowing is a truth.
When you have these experiences, know that you are experiencing your true nature, soul. Should you want to experience more, seek beauty and peace in all things. It is here, you will find your self.
