信任你的灵魂 需要当你作为一个自我操作无比的勇气。 这是因为自我需要它的工作非常重视。 它被赋予保持身体免受伤害的任务，它忘了，这是代表灵魂执行此服务。 它认为这是保护自己。 你的自我有得知找到它有可能成为你的灵魂的仆人真正的满足。
现在是时候成熟认真测试你有多少信任你的灵魂。 有很多方法可以做到这一点，但任何方式你选择了它不应该是半心半意。 你已经达到的那一刻，你必须放手岸边跳进河里。 霍皮人的说法，题为 长老智慧，抓住这一刻非常好：
独狼的时间已经过去 因为您已经达到您的发展点，当你放弃你的独立性。 您准备跳进河里 看看谁是与你同在，庆祝，因为你现在要与这些人谁也致力于自己的灵魂“目的的工作。 他们是与你的河流是有原因的。 他们是亲属的灵魂; 同时你要转移到相互依存的状态，因此您可以充分利用在使在世界上的差异你的努力。
我清楚地记得，那天当我真正让岸边去，并开始信任我的灵魂。 当我还是一个孩子，我很害羞。 我很害怕当众说话，当我成为一所学校知府我会进入一个极度恐慌，如果我不得不在学校集会阅读圣经。 我制定了处理这个策略：交易我的职责与其他省长，或者如果没有工作，我会假装我病了，留在家里。
之后，我完成了我的大学学业，我知道我必须要正视这个问题，如果我想推进我的事业，让我去演讲班。 我学会了如何做一个好的演讲，不一定是一个鼓舞人心的讲话，但人们可以理解，使我能够了解我的消息的讲话。 因为我总是谈论技术话题，我用的幻灯片。 我依靠我的幻灯片来支持我让我的演讲。
快进30年. 一天晚上，我应邀发表演讲在荷兰的一所教堂。 我没有与主办方太多的交流，所以我不知道为什么被观众所显示出来。 我问自己， “他们来听在组织变革或个人转型的语音的语音？“
我决定相信我的灵魂，和谁这个时候我已经建立了深厚的友谊。 我尝试的东西，我后来被称为“灵魂说话“ - 不是提供一个准备好的讲稿，但显示出来，询问观众为什么他们来的几个成员，然后靠着我的灵魂，以解决他们的关切。 当然，它的工作。
从那时起，我靠越来越多的这种技术。 除非我需要幻灯片传达特定的消息，我也不会做准备; 我只想出现，让我的灵魂做休息。 说话前大约两分钟，我会闭上眼睛，在去和我的灵魂连接。 我会这样说，“OK, soul now is the moment; time for you to give your message.” I still do this every time I give a speech.
Consciously Stepping Into Soul Consciousness
When I consciously step into soul consciousness, I know from the feedback I get that I am at my most inspirational. I also learn a lot. The words that I speak are sometimes things I have never heard myself say before. Now I enjoy giving speeches, because next to writing, this is when I feel closest to my soul.
When I am writing, I automatically step into soul consciousness and start typing. My soul guides me all the way. My soul not only tells me what books to write, it supports me in the process—it gives me the table of contents, and tells me how to structure each chapter. The messages come in different ways. Sometimes, I will wake in the middle of the night with a huge download of information and make notes. I keep a note pad by bed permanently, because I never know when the next message will come.
Sometimes, when I come to a new chapter and have no conscious idea of what to say, a thought in the form of a phrase or a sentence will come to me. I immediately write it down. That phrase is like the thread at the end of a ball of wool. Before I know what has happened, I have filled several pages with words that just flowed from that sentence. Then, I use three-dimensional logic to reorganize what I have written, and add some data.
Because of these experiences, I have learned that whenever I feel stuck and don’t know what to do, I simply ask for guidance from my soul. I explain the situation, which is a bit pointless because my soul already knows, and simply ask my soul to take charge; I ask my soul to give me the advice that will benefit its purposes. I always get an answer within twenty-four hours. The answers are clear and precise.
Getting Rid Of Any Ego Attachment
To operate in this way you have to get rid of any ego attachment you may have to things having to be the way your ego wants them. When your ego thinks it knows exactly what to do, beware! The ego is usually focused on satisfying one of its unmet needs. The mere thought of not being able to achieve these needs generates anxiety and fear.
Whenever you allow fear to enter your mind, you are sending a message to your soul that you do not trust it to produce the outcome that is most beneficial to you. Non-attachment sends a different message to your soul. It says I trust you, Soul, to organize the outcome so that it most perfectly fits with 您的 的需求。
What your ego is attempting to learn by trusting the soul is that the best possible outcomes always arise when you allow your doing to flow from your being.
Learning to Allow Rather Than Force
This technique of allowing, rather than forcing, is particularly powerful once you have committed to your soul’s purpose. Your soul begins to make things happen by using its four-dimensional energetic connections: These words which appear in William H. Murray’s book, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951), capture the idea:
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.
To get more of the joy you want to experience, you must do away with any fears you may have about following your passion, and learn to trust your soul. This is a big step because it may mean throwing caution to the winds, and it may mean stepping out into your life without a parachute. To do this, you must be able to trust that you will be able to survive. This may force you to revisit your unresolved ego issues (conscious or subconscious fear-based beliefs) that you have about meeting your survival needs.
The ego has not yet realized that it is the servant of its soul, and that it owes its very existence to the soul. This is the next stage of development— becoming one with your soul.
Changing Your Identity
Trust is a two-way street. Not only do you have to learn to trust your soul, your soul has to learn to trust you. One of the ways you can gain the trust of your soul by identifying yourself as a soul—by assuming the characteristics of a soul. To do this, you must take all forms of separation out of the way you identify yourself. At the fourth dimension of consciousness, the soul is energetically connected to every other soul that comes into your life—there is no separation at the higher dimensions of consciousness.
The ego has four main ways of identifying itself — gender, religion, nationality and race. Before I began to identify as a soul, I used to describe myself as a white, male, British, Protestant. This form of identity separated me from all people of colour, all females, all other nationalities, and all non-Protestant religions. I realized that was a lot of separation that needed to be healed if I was going to earn the trust of your soul.
The way I removed nationality as a marker of separation, was to identify myself as citizen of the planet. The way I removed gender as a marker of separation, was to embrace my softer female energies. The way I removed race as a marker of separation, was to think of myself as a soul having a human experience. The way I removed religion as a marker of separation, was to think of myself as a member of all religions.
I am not willing to let any form of divisiveness into my life. I made up my mind nothing would stop me from identifying with what I believe is the core message of all religions—living a life of love.
When asked, “Where are you from?” I very often give the answer, “Heaven.” Most people I say this to see the humorous implication, and we get into a conversation about their spiritual beliefs — we immediately start to build connection. Others look at me quizzically, as if I am a bit deranged. That’s OK. I am not worried about what people think of me. Try it yourself and see what happens. You will have fun.
The point I am trying to make here is simple. By identifying yourself in the four ways I have described, you are sending a message to your soul, as well as to your ego, that you are fully onboard with the idea that everyone in a human body is essentially a soul having a human experience. We are all individuated aspects of a multi dimensional energy field. By identifying with this field, you are consciously bringing the four-dimensional reality of your soul into your three-dimensional world—exactly what your soul is trying to do. This is one of the most important strategies for gaining the trust of your soul.
Here are the main points of this chapter:
1. You have to let go of the shore and jump into the river if you are going to learn to trust your soul.
2. If you want to live in soul consciousness, you must learn how to let go of your ego’s attachment to specific outcomes.
3. Take all separation beliefs about your identity out of your life — you are a soul enjoying a human existence. That is your only reality.
