The Sacred Soul

Posted on September 24, 2013. Filed under: Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , |

Many tools are available to help connect us to our inner guidance, our divine essence, our soul.  Whatever term you prefer, they all refer to that broader, timeless, non-physical aspect of ourselves, and that aspect of us is continually offering guidance, support, and unconditional love.  The only question becomes are we listening?

My personal journey has brought me, once again, to the powerful and healing energy of the Akashic Records.  I say “again” because this energy is familiar to me, it calls to me and I delight every single time I’m invited to share in it with my clients.  This is energy which I have accessed in other lifetimes.  Now, not only has my journey brought me back to the records for personal growth, but I also share Akashic Record Readings with clients from around the world.

Your Akashic Record 2The Akashic Records, if you’re not familiar, are the vibrational records of each soul’s journey through all of time.  They contain the history of all humanity – past, present, and future.  In the Bible, the records are referred to as The Book of Life.

As with any great body of information, there are many ways and means of accessing the knowledge contained therein.  Through a prayer process, I have been granted access into the heart of the records – the area of information that pertains to who you are at a core and fundamental level.  From this space, I am given information to help my clients remember who they are and what they’ve come into this life to experience.

Though each and every forray into the unconditional love that is the energy of the records is unique and special, a number of experiences appear to be universal.

1. The energy upon which the history of humanity is written as the Akashic Records is unconditional love.  When it is said that love unites us all, no truer words could be spoken.  Love IS the energy of which all things are made.

2.  Every soul is sacred.  In the space of unconditional love, no judgment exists.  Judgment is a human construct, an effort to assign meaning and significance to life experiences within the framework of the mind.  The fundamental truth is that every soul is an aspect of the divine, living out a human experience, but divine and sacred all the same.

3.  We are always connected to our divine Source.  It is only our awareness of our connection that fluctuates.  We alone are responsible for allowing or dis-allowing our connection through our thoughts, beliefs and perceptions, but the connection is always available.

Journeying into the records is like sharing an intimate dance with our soul.  We are enfolded in our soul’s loving embrace.  We are refreshed and renewed as we allow the life-giving peace and love of Source to fill, nurture and sustain us.  We are empowered by remembering our divine and sacred heritage.  We once again, at least for a short time, re-member the experience of BEING Love as we stand in union with our sacred self, our soul.

I invite you to experience the gift of this intimate dance and reunion with your soul.  Readings are offered by phone or Skype and are recorded for you convenience.  Readings last between 60 and 90 minutes and currently cost $150.  To schedule your own reading, please contact me at sue@soulspeaking.net. I look forward to the honor and privilege of greeting your soul through the unconditional love of the Akashic Records.

Standing in Confidence

Posted on August 2, 2013. Filed under: Spiritual Awakening, Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Just two weeks ago when I attempted to write this blog, I was in a completely different space.  Now things have shifted, I have shifted, and I see the same things from this different perspective.

I guess I’m learning (again) to trust the process, my process.  I’m learning to trust this new foundation upon which I’m crafting my ever-expanding, constantly moving world.  I’m experiencing the power and the “rightness” of honoring my truth, sharing my voice and fully experiencing my emotions.

The bottom line is that life continues to be a fluid reflection of my inner world.  As I claim, with confidence and surety, the power of my connection to my Source, others reflect back to me the “magic” of allowing that connection.  It’s become such an anomaly, this natural connection to Source, that when we witness it, we’re awestruck and mesmerized.  The truth of the matter is that we ALL have this connection to Source; we ALL have access to the seemingly magical and miraculous happenings that flow from this connection.  We ALL do.  I’m not special – I’m just practicing living in the space of that connection, and it feels incredible.

sea-103539_1280I shared several Akashic Record readings this week that not only profoundly affected my clients, but which also profoundly affected me.  Each reading is unique and special, but this week something incredible happened for me.  I experienced a deep knowing about the power of aligning with my Soul.  I gained “evidence” of the magic of sharing my gifts in ways that makes my heart sing.  I realized that I am very good at what I do, and the more fully I stand in confidence, knowing Who I Am, the more powerfully I am able to influence my clients’ experience.

Life is all about learning who we are, about experiencing ourselves as the powerful creator of our world, and about allowing love to flow through us unimpeded.  The ways in which we can do all of these things are endless.  We can never get it wrong… but, oh, the deliciousness of how it feels when we allow complete and utter alignment is almost beyond description!

So today, as opposed to two weeks ago, I stand here in eager anticipation of whatever is next.  I stand with great joy and confidence that Life will be exciting and adventurous – and I’m ready.  I’m ready to embrace the entirety of my experience because I KNOW the power of my alignment, and I KNOW that I can come back to this place of alignment whenever I choose.  There is nothing more delicious, nor more exciting, than standing in the power of BEING me.

FLOW Junkie

Posted on June 23, 2013. Filed under: Spiritual Awakening | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I have a confession to make.  I have become a “Flow Junkie.”  I’m sure it is not as ominous as that might sound, and I surely hope that it’s contagious – because it’s pretty incredible and I’d love for everyone to experience this too.

The other day I had the pleasure of connecting with a friend over a three-hour lunch.  We hadn’t connected in a while, so we both had a lot of interesting life experiences to share.  She said that another friend of hers had “accused” her of being a “flow junkie.”  The phrase stuck with me, and I’ve concluded that I too have become a Flow Junkie.  I think that’s pretty incredible.

Life has continued to propel me along my path.  Sometimes I bounce over the rocks, and sometimes I float along with great ease, but the ground I’ve covered is undeniable.

2012 Jun Andy and Friends Slip N Slide 066In the past year, I’ve directed most of my creative juices in to my Facebook page Soul Speaking.  I’ve experienced great success with it too.  My page has flourished and has over 116,000 followers from around the world.  I now regularly connect with people at a soul-level through Akashic Record Readings.  I’ve become a published author by contributing a chapter to a book about the people behind those FB pages.  While that experience included many unforeseen side-trips, I’m eternally grateful for the blessing that it continues to bestow in my life.

In the past year, I’ve become so much more firmly rooted and grounded in my center, in my connection to MY Source.  I see Life as an amazing unfolding of joyous opportunities to create, expand and experience.  The possibilities are truly endless, and I’ve certainly become “addicted” to feeling this joyous connection.  I crave the high-flying feelings of delight and euphoria as new experiences and opportunities crest over my horizons.  I love knowing with every cell of my being that life is always working out for me, and I love basking in the trust that everything happens for my highest good.

I revel in the relationships made available to me because of this unerring focus on feeling good.  I delight in watching amazing circumstances align themselves for me and for the people in my life.  “Magic” happens regularly.  Miracles have become commonplace!

Oh yes!  I most certainly have become a FLOW Junkie. And I cannot recommend it highly enough.  I really suggest that you try it for yourself.  But I’ll warn you – it doesn’t take much to get you hooked!

Open to Receiving

Posted on July 19, 2011. Filed under: Spiritual Awakening | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Do you know that you are connected to an endless, streaming, continuous flow of unconditional love?  Do you realize the magnitude and the magnificence of that knowing?

Close your eyes for a minute and recall a moment of pure, utter bliss.  Do you recall the euphoria of that feeling?  The expansiveness of being so much bigger than the physical you in that memory?

Focus on that feeling of bliss, milking it, making it even bigger and brighter.  Savor that feeling for just another moment.

It is in those moments of sheer and utter bliss that we are most closely aligned with our Soul – that beautiful, expansive, loving part of ourselves that is forever connected to God, to Source.  In bliss we stand as one with our Soul, fully embodying the endless and continuous flow of unconditional love from God.  As electricity flows continuously to light a lightbulb, so too does God’s unconditional love flow to and through us to light our lives.

And yet, how often do we unwittingly flip the switch, interrupting our willingness to receive that flow?

Searching for that connection to God, we often erect barriers and obstacles, establishing conditions on our worthiness to receive this endless stream of love from God.  Then we spend our physical lives slowly dismantling those barriers and obstacles.

The truth of the matter, for me at least, is that this wonderful, powerful, healing, all-encompassing stream of loving energy is always available to us.  Always.  Endlessly.  Continuously.

The only question is whether you are open to receiving it?  What would it take for you to allow this endless and continuous love to flow through your life?

Redefining Success

Posted on July 6, 2011. Filed under: Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , , |

Success.  It’s one of those things that we’re all striving to attain or achieve.  But what exactly is success?  How do you define it?

Certainly, success can have different meanings depending upon the context.  Financial success can be defined as a big house, nice car, the accumulation of pretty things or the freedom to travel and live as you choose.  Professional success might be defined as fame, respect from your peers, or achieving the top of the corporate ladder.  Personal success… what would that be defined as?  Being in control of your emotions?  A well-developed sense of self and personal acceptance?  A long-term relationship?

It seems to me that many, if not all, typical definitions of success contain an “external” factor.  Whether it’s the accumulation of wealth or accolades, success seems to involve, or at least include, something outside of ourselves.

I’d like to challenge those notions of success.  What if success were simply measured by our happiness?  How successful is your life, then?  Simple – not necessarily easy.

Most of us move through life picking up ideas that our behaviors create others’ happiness.  Getting good grades as kids “makes” our parents happy.  Working hard “makes” our bosses happy.  It’s true that those behaviors make someone else’s life easier, but that’s not really the same thing as making them happy.  And yet our parents and bosses fall victim to the same mistaken belief that someone or something outside of themselves is responsible for their happiness.  The cycle of mistaken belief continues.

If I’m responsible for someone else’s happiness, then it stands to reason that someone else is responsible for mine.

Can you see what a quandary this sets up?  How successful have you ever been at making someone else happy?  And how effective have the people and things in your life been at making you happy?

Whenever we set our sights on things outside of ourselves to make us happy, we’re bound to fail.  This is where our current definition of success falls short.  I can acquire uncountable wealth and accumulate myriads of treasure and still be miserable.  Would my life be deemed a success or not?  Is the point of life to accumulate things or to know and love one’s self?

I’ve come to value the knowing, loving and accepting of myself as infinitely more valuable than rooms and rooms full of “stuff.”  My happiness is paramount to my success as a soul in physical form.  By using my happiness as the benchmark to gauge my life and guide my decisions, I move closer and closer to embodying all of the possibilities that my life holds.  I step more fully into the divine, spiritual being that I truly am.  By choosing happiness, I bring God into my daily experience.

To me, THAT is a much more meaningful definition of a successful life.

Metamorphosis

Posted on May 27, 2011. Filed under: Spiritual Awakening, Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Once again, my life has shown me how true it is that treasures rise up out of the ashes.  Through trials and tribulations we are transformed into truer and truer versions of ourselves – which I’m coming to believe is the whole point of our life experiences in the first place.

What on earth am I babbling about, you’re probably asking yourself.  And that would be a very valid question.  Please allow me to explain.

For the past six years, I’ve owned and operated my own scrapbooking business, almost single-handedly.  Certainly, I have had numerous people help me along the way, but the bottom line has been that the weight of the business fell on my shoulders.  Many of you have heard me jokingly refer to Sue in design, Sue in production, Sue in accounts receivable, Sue in shipping and Sue in customer service.  You get the idea.  Business owners wear many hats – and I’ve worn them all at some point or another.

On Monday, my website was taken down by the hosting company because it had been compromised by hackers who were now sending out phishing spam emails from it.  I seriously have no idea how one would accomplish this – but apparently computer hackers aren’t limited by my same lack of knowledge.  And ignorance of the process does not protect oneself from the outcome.  So Albums & Answers’ website was deleted.

*POOF*  With a few keystrokes, evidence of six years of my focus, time, energy and efforts disappeared.  While I’ve been slowly moving in this direction anyway, I was still caught off-guard by the overwhelming grief I felt when the site disappeared.  A myriad of emotions surfaced as I processed through the thoughts, consequences and ramifications of this ending.

Many of you are unaware of the new dream that has been forming and gathering momentum in the background of my running this scrapbook business.  Over the past couple years, I’ve also been pursuing my interest in spiritual growth and psychic development.  You can imagine my surprise as I came to realize they were one in the same pursuits.

In typical Sue fashion, wanting to share what I’m learning and to help people to see life as the amazing adventure that I now recognize it to be, a new business idea began to take shape.  And while I’m saddened at the ending of Albums & Answers, I again see how endings are just the beginning of something new.  So I proudly introduce you to Soul Speaking – my personal growth business to help connect you to your authentic self.

Over the past few years, my understanding of “truth” has undergone a huge transformation.  Truth has come to represent nothing more than those things that align us with our authentic selves.  One person’s truth is not necessarily the same as another’s.  So how do we discern our own truth amid all of the “stories” we’ve been told all of our lives?  The answer is surprisingly simple (not easy, but simple):  we know our truth by how it feels.  When we feel joy, love, excitement, bliss and those types of feelings, we are experiencing those delicious moments of connection to our authentic self, to our Source, to God.

The goal, then, to live in connection with our authentic self can be summed up by a few short words:  Follow your bliss.  It is my goal with Soul Speaking to help you know your Self, embrace your Life and live your Joy.  To accomplish that goal, I now offer several services.

Joy Coaching provides on-going (ideally weekly) support to examine the choices you’re currently making which are shaping your current reality.  By accepting responsibility for everything that shows up in your life, you now have the power to change those things that you don’t like.  Together we find ways to  move your closer and closer to a life filled with joy and bliss.

Reiki Healing, an ancient form of energy healing, helps to restore the natural flow of energy through your body and creates a state of deep relaxation which promotes healing and relieves stress.  Ideally, reiki is performed in person by the practitioner laying their hands on a fully clothed client who is laying on a massage table.  However, reiki can also be sent long-distance as energy is not bound by spatial constraints.  A reiki session leaves the client feeling deeply relaxed, promoting our natural state of well-being.

I also offer Akashic Record Readings to help gain perspective on your life by accessing the vibrational (Akashic) record of your soul’s journey through all of time.  These records contain wisdom and guidance from the broader knowing of our soul.  This broader perspective can give us practical insight into our daily lives that we often miss while we’re embroiled in our personal dramas.

Soul Speaking is about giving voice to the spirit within you, connecting you to the wisdom and guidance of that inner spirit.  Life truly is a magnificent adventure.  Each moment holds the potential for joy.  The choice is ours.  What will you choose?

Contact Sue at sue@soulspeaking.net for more information on any of these services.  Limited appointments are available through June.  What are YOU waiting for to start living a life filled with joy?!

The Facets of Multi-dimensional Living

Posted on April 18, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

Take a raw, uncut diamond rock from the ground and what have you got?  Potential.  You hold within your hands the potential of a million possibilities.

Like the diamond in the rough, our Soul enters this Earth as a chance to be cut, polished and refined into a gem of immeasurable beauty, depth and grace.  So too our Souls undertake the laborious, and at times painful, process of having additional facets added to our multi-dimensional selves.

As each facet adds another surface to reflect off of, bringing greater beauty to the eyes of the beholder.  So too these additional dimensions that are being added to our Souls will reflect back an even greater glory of our God, our Source of All That Is.

In the end, after all of the cutting, polishing, and grinding, our Soul has not been changed into something else.  A diamond is still a diamond, after all.  But each new dimension will bring added sparkle and value to our lives.
