The Longest Journey – The 18 Inches From Your Head to Your Heart

by SedonaJeannie on March 4, 2016

What are the signs that you have arrived?  

Good question!  

I found some great insights while reading the blog one of my favorite authors who was featured in the movie “The Secret”,  Mike Dooley who created the “Notes from the Universe” newsletters and has coined the phrase “thoughts are things – choose the good ones”.

As you develop on the journey from your head to your heart, here are five universal attributes that can help you recognize true connection with your soul-self.

1. Our soul-self is kind to us.When we are connected to our soul-self, we are kind to ourselves. Our spark of divinity has an incredibly loving and supportive energy and will never put us down, scold us or berate us for not doing better. The cruel and judgmental part of us comes from our thinking mind. Our soul is gentle, caring, and open.

2. Our soul-self is quiet. There is a calmness that comes from a connection with our soul-self. Our thinking minds are busy, often overactive and flighty. But the divine part of us is soft, peaceful and still. As a result, it speaks in whispers and nudges. These whispers can often be overshadowed by the noise of the world, so to foster an ongoing connection with this deep part of ourselves we have to commit to creating stillness in our lives so we can truly hear.

3. Our soul-self is wise.We are infinitely wise, and we become our own best experts when we are in tune with our soul. We can use our gut instinct, or our intuition, to seek clarity and find the support we need. We recognize that all of our strength lies within us, not in the outer world. Our soul relies on feeling as opposed to thinking.

4. Our soul-self knows we are all connected.When you connect with the part of you that is authentic, true, deep and real, you also feel connected to others. That energy of kindness extends to those around you, and you begin to sense a deeper feeling of connection with all of life. Those who live from a soul perspective are typically giving, caring, and incredibly loving.

5. Our soul-self wants us to be happy.Our soul is always trying to show us the path to true joy, and nudge us in the direction of real happiness. It is once we begin to truly trust these feelings, and follow our hearts, that we can begin to harness the wisdom and power of our divine spark.

Each and every one of us is on a journey back to our soul-selves, and to remembering that real part of us that we all share. Some of us are more aware of the search, while others are still blinded by the glare of forgetfulness. Yet, once you get close to that part of yourself that is powerful, real and infinitely wise, and feel its tug on your heart, you will forever crave that sense of depth and connection.


In my work with Sedona Soul Adventures I create a series of experiences that allow people to connect to their most authentic self, their true essence and I believe that to be their Soul.  In my astrology sessions I view the life of the person as the evolution of their soul and the birth chart as a tool to find the areas of expansion and the timing that new cycles of initiation will be experienced.  I encourage people to re-connect to the Soul to be sure that they are actively participating and creating for themselves from the highest vantage point possible :~)
