It happens very often with us, especially night time when we’re in our bed trying really hard to sleep, that our mind starts wandering in all possible directions and despite all our conscious efforts it just does not stop. The body is tired and wants to shut down but the mind differs, it wants to continue talking and it wants you to listen. The conflict continues with several hours of tossing and turning in your bed, looking at the clock every minute.
LISTEN! Listen carefully to that chatter. It is our soul talking to us and telling us to look at something we’ve been ignoring. It is that aspect of our life which needs our attention the most in the present moment. It might not be the most important thing according to us, but then why are we still up thinking about it when we could be snoring away? We often believe that the aspect troubling us currently is our real problem which is most important and needs immediate attention and what our mind is talking about is totally different from what we are experiencing. But if we pay attention to what our soul’s chatter is telling us, we’ll see that the solution to our current problem lies beneath the story our soul is telling us.
We keep ourselves so engrossed in our daily problems that we forget to wait and listen to our soul. The soul gets tired of holding on to the problem which we have continuously chosen to neglect. That is the reason of the chattering of our minds. Our soul is forced to disturb us at that time. It wants to get rid of its problem.
The only way to stop this chatter and get a peaceful sleep is to allow our soul to talk. Let the thoughts flow and write down each and every thought you get and the emotions you experience then. Once you’ve penned it down, read it, bring your awareness to all the words your soul is telling you. This automatically will bring your conscious and subconscious in alignment with each other. Now sleep over it. By doing so, you firstly will be able to sleep peacefully since you’ve uncluttered your mind and cleared its baggage and secondly, you’ll know where your problem actually lies. And then once you consciously register the problem, you’ll work on resolving it.
Listening to our soul helps us work towards our growth. It’s all inside us – both the problem and its solution. We just have to accept them as part of us, as a part of our being. Never ever ignore the voice of your soul because by doing so all we are doing is running away from accepting our growth, which anyways is inevitable.
