Soul

We live in many places: Vancouver, Bali, Thailand, Toronto, Hawaii, New Zealand, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Halifax or Montreal, I believe the soul is our inner most self.  

Our soul is, to me, something beautiful and radiant but it is something we can never see.  We can possibly feel it or begin to connect with it when we are the most centered and calm, deep rooted into ourselves.  It is incredibly pure.  

Ego

We learn in Yoga Teacher Training that the soul is not an emotion and it is not Ego.  It is what we were born with and when we die, the soul continues on.  

Dropping the body we have here on earth, the soul carries on and I believe the soul is energy.  I believe the soul is divine.

Alive

Our souls are alive.  Thinking of the word Alive, I mean actually being alive.  Not alive with worry, judgement, fear, etc.  

Despite if you live in Vancouver, Bali, Thailand, Toronto, Hawaii, New Zealand, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Halifax or Montreal the soul is alive in the most simplest and purest form.  It is free of all our worldly feelings and is at the root, our inner knowing.  Our inner truth.  Our true inner beauty.  

We cannot explain the soul to someone.  We cannot paint it or even describe it. Trying to explain the soul brings Ego into the equation and the Ego is on the opposite spectrum of the soul.  

The soul instead is a light inside of us that shines so brightly; if we allow it.  

The soul is always, always, always with us but we get so busy that we do not connect with the soul, unless we practice silencing ourselves and the chitter-chatter of our brains.  Connecting to the beauty within.  The light within.  

Energy

I believe our soul is energy.  Much like a light is energy, so is our soul. We operate at a vibration and as we clear the emotions and chitter-chatter, we come closer and closer to the soul, to the beautiful light that is within us.  

When we do yoga or a yoga teacher training, we connect closer to our soul, we operate a higher vibration.  The more worried, angry and emotional we become, we operate at a lower vibration and it is impossible to connect with the it at a lower vibration. 

It is pure and connecting with the it feels like freedom.  Much like what we imagine an eagle gliding along the windy breeze with no attachments to anything other than just being with the breeze. 

Nothing

When we sit with nothing except our inner truth, our inner light and learn more about it by just sitting, just being in the moment, we too, like an eagle gliding so effortlessly, find freedom.  

Finding freedom from the worldly pressures and emotions that tie us down.  Finding our soul is pure, freedom and limitless.
