Another synchronistic event happened to me when I was writing up this month’s music selection, Soul Shine. I love it when these happen and I love sharing them with you.
I was going back in forth to what song I wanted to feature this month. Nothing was hitting me until I remembered “Soulshine” by The Allman Brothers Band. A friend of mine had recommended this song for the site. Though a fan of The Allman Brothers and of good ole southern rock, I hadn’t heard the song before, but quickly fell in love with it. After I decide to write up a song, I put it on my iPhone and iPod and listen to it over and over again till I know what I want to write about the song. You can read my SoulShine post here.
So I find myself humming Soulshine while listening to a podcast of psychic medium, John Holland. John was discussing the principles in his book The Power of the Soul.” John discussed all things soul that I love. How to understand your soul purpose and tap into the wisdom and intuitive guidance of your soul. Then all of the sudden, John mentions a concept he calls “soul shine.” Wait what? Pause. Hit rewind. Did he just say “soul shine?” Yes he did and here’s the concept.
Have you ever had a conversation with someone about something they love, something they feel real passionate about? You feel the energy exuding out them. You notice the clarity in their eyes and the enthusiasm in their voice. Why? Because they are connecting with what they truly love and that’s when your soul shines.
I think it is easier for us to see this in other people than it is to see it for ourselves. So I urge my SOUL community to tell people when you see their soul shine. I did this the other day. There’s a guy on my road that runs with such joy and beauty. Every time I see him running he is smiling. So the other day I’m driving home from work and I decided to flag him down. I rolled down my window and told him he was my favorite runner on my road. He laughed and said thank you. I asked him how does he always run with such joy? He said, “It’s fun and I love it.” I told him I could tell. A car came up behind me and I had to say goodbye. Though it was a quick encounter, I could tell I made this guys day.
Acknowledge soul shine when you see it in others. Write down what you are doing when you feel it in yourself. It’s time to SOUL Shine! It’s better than moonshine.
