We haven’t spoke in a while about our soul blueprints, our spirit charts.  This was brought to my attention a few days ago.

                          The reason we come here is to learn, we have set out on this adventure with lessons in mind.  As we prepare ourselves to embody, to put on our school clothes of this physical form, we are working towards soul evolution.

             In this process, we assign ourselves pretty challenging tasks.  (We basically sign up for all Advanced classes.)  But here’s the thing about this entire situation.  WE are responsible.

             So, if at any point during our lifetime here, we feel it is necessary to alter that contract, we can.  This is our message, this is our reminder from the Universe:

Free Will

             All of the movement, all of the action/non-action, all of the decisions are up to us.  Of course there is the Free Will of others, and the parts we have no control over.  Which is exactly why we’ve built in our Exit Points and our Contract Modifications.

             We wrote it.  We can change it.  We can make our story different.

             Here is our validation, and our guide to finding out more.  By following her example, we are better able to see where changes need to be made, or what may be left as is, for further exploration.

“St Teresa of Avila

Our Lady Of The Interior

‘I trust the answers I find within me.

I know that the presence of love is real.’

Who She Is:

With passion and conviction, Teresa of Avila connects us to the love and truth available to us whenever we turn inward.  Saint Teresa was born in Avila, Spain in 1515.  As an adolescent she experienced many illnesses and was confined to bed, which allowed her to begin to explore her own thoughts.  She read every books she could find on spiritual exploration and contemplative prayer.  By the time she was a young adult she knew she wanted to dedicate her life to the interior world.

She entered a Carmelite convent in Avila in 1535.  She went on to increase the emphasis on contemplative prayer and eventually reformed the order, which was later joined by Saint Joan of the Cross.  Over the course of her life, she founded 17 convents throughout Spain.

… she wrote many books, including The Interior Castle, which charts the ascent of the soul.

Ultimately Saint Teresa wrote in the hope of assisting sisters in the convent to also reach the innermost castle …

Her own personal spiritual experiences are at the root of her instruction.  The inner journey was so significant to her because she believed that her god didn’t care about the magnitude of anything we do – but rather the amount of love with which we do it.

Pope Paul VI named Saint Teresa a doctor of the church in 1970.  Her spiritual writings are considered integral to the Spanish Renaissance and to the history of christian mysticism.

When Your Soul Selects Her Card:

Saint Teresa is a call for the importance of the interior life.  She knew intimately about the spiritual wealth we all possess and have access to if we are willing to go inward.

She not only emphasized the need to meditate and to pray in order to reach that innermost castle where the soul waits for us, but she also instructed the sisters of her convent on how to discern the presence of the soul, or of a saint, or of a holy person which is giving us wisdom from within.

She urges us to quietly go inward and meet with the presence of the soul.  And then she asks for us to believe that it is real, that the answers we find are real.

She asks us to move that inner truth out into the world with confidence and conviction.

Soul-Voice Meditation:

What does love feel like in my body?

Intention:

I trust the answers I find within me.

I know that the presence of love is real.”

Today’s Sharing:

is just to say that, we know there are phone apps for everything right now, usually shit we don’t need, but there are also really cool metaphysical offerings, both free and otherwise.  If you haven’t poked around and looked at them lately, I encourage you to.   I don’t recommend any, just use your intuition.
