A Letter from Your Soul

Are you fulfilling your life’s purpose? Being able to say “I’m doing what I was put on this earth to do” is a goal many of us aspire towards – but before you start marching toward your destiny, you have to figure out where you’re going.

If you’re not sure of the right direction to take, why not let your soul be your guide? After all, you are first and foremost a soul being – the human existence you are experiencing (the one you’re spending so much energy worrying about) is only temporary. Your soul has been around for eons, and has lived in many spaces and many places. By opening yourself up to your inner voice,  you allow you soul to guide you through your human experiences.


Don’t let yourself be distracted by human matters.

You are not your money, your house, your job, or even your body – so try to put those things aside when you are making important decisions about your life. It’s possible to have everything that any human could desire, and still not feel fulfilled deep down in your core.  You are also not obligated to live up to anyone else’s expectations, only you know the path that is right for you.

You will never be happy till you sing the song of your soul.


Write a letter from your soul to your human self.

This exercise was channeled straight into my head last week at my Omega workshop. We were discussing the idea of soul traits versus human traits, and I was struggling to come up with a way to bring this point home to my students. Suddenly Spirit spoke to me and said “Have everyone write a letter from to their human self, from their soul.”

The letters that came out of this exercise were so profound that everyone in the room, including myself, was amazed.

Try this exercise now. If you like, you can share the results in the comment section below.

Sit down and breathe deeply for a few minutes. Quietly ask your soul to deliver guidance to your human self, and open yourself up to the messages that come through. Write down exactly what comes through, without thinking or editing. 


Here are some examples of the kinds of messages that your soul wants you to hear:

– Pay more attention to the people that you love.

– Spend more time being quiet, and try to slow down…

– Everything will work out as it should, but not the way you expect it to.

– The things you are worrying about are not important.

– Don’t be afraid to take your first step toward your dreams.

–  Turn down the distractions and noise, Spirit is trying to communicate with you.

– Think back on the last few months and look for patterns and coincidences.


Open yourself up to receive.

The letter from your soul might not be delivered via express mail. Opening yourself up to hear your souls true voice might take a little time. If you are having difficulty getting a clear message, work to “tune into your soul signal” by meditating, writing your thoughts down in a journal, or dedicating some time to spiritual pursuits. I invite you to explore my new school, the James Van Praagh School of Mystical Arts for inspiration!
