Our Mind vs. Our Soul

Our Mind vs. Our Soul

We are each made up of three things: our physical bodies, the mind (or the ego), and our soul. Our bodies and our minds are only limited to the Earth plane but our souls are eternal and live on forever. The soul is where we can access our soul feelings or a piece of divine love. This is the sweet spot where we find happiness and peace.

So why then are we constantly searching outside of ourselves to find it?

Sure we can get a momentary glimpse with a compliment, a new car, a job offer, or meeting a new love interest. But these feelings won’t last. Why? Because our mind is fear-based and always searching for its next fix.

It is never happy just being. It strives to control the future by creating plans and expectations and if there’s an unknown it loves to make up a narrative, often in a very negative sense. It also likes to dwell on the past. Wondering why things had to happen the way they did, overanalyzing, and wishing we could somehow go back and fix things.

Well, you know where the mind can’t be? In the present moment and guess what? This is also where our souls exist! To be truly happy we must be out of our minds, and in the present moment with our souls.

In short the mind = fear and the soul = love. In the current reality of so much uncertainty and doubt our minds are having a blast creating all these different worst-case scenarios and are addicted to information. But to be honest we KNOW nothing! For example, our perspective of the same exact situation will always be different from someone else’s because of our mind’s experiences, beliefs, and judgments. Therefore we never really get a clear picture of what is actually happening.

Doesn’t it make sense now to ignore our egos’ need to know and control everything? And why do we feel compelled to judge everything as good or bad? In this age of constant change and chaos, it is so important to stay in the present because that is all that is real. It’s the only time and place that really exists.

The past is over and the future has not begun yet. Sure our minds play a role in our everyday life and that is perfect because we are human. But the next time you find your mind getting the best of you. Call it out! You don’t have to believe what your mind is telling you 24/7.

In order to quiet the mind, you can purposefully connect with your soul by doing things like breathing into your heart chakra or some form of meditative practice. Dear one your soul wants you to know that you are so deserving of peace and love and it is always there with you waiting for you to turn inward.
