Mindfulness vs Soulfulness

So much has been written about mindfulness and I think that's a wonderful thing. The more people encouraging us to reconnect with ourselves the better. Our lives are so busy and we are hell bent on achieving everything on our to do/wish lists that we rush through life firing on all cylinders until eventually our body says enough is enough.

People turn to mindfulness for many reasons and as a therapeutic technique it also has many definitions. The term ‘mindfulness’ corresponds to the Pali term sati which is rooted in Buddhist traditions. Buddhist teachings use mindfulness to develop self-knowledge and wisdom that gradually leads to enlightenment and freedom from suffering.

Mindfulness is a wonderful and widespread psychological tool to help you cope with the stresses of life, feel more balanced, and centred. It takes time, practice, patience and compassion for yourself to have a long-lasting and positive impact. But what if there was a way to access this state of being without using mindfulness as a tool, would you consider it?

I’m not offering you a quick fix to inner balance and being fully present, it doesn’t matter what route you take to try and achieve that you have to show up and put the work in. What I am offering is another way to reconnect with your self-knowledge and it’s called Soul Plan.

If we look at “self-knowledge” it means: “knowledge or understanding of one’s own capabilities, character, feelings or motivations.” Using your mind to connect with your capabilities, character, feelings or motivations is one way to go about things, having a Soul Plan Reading is another way to reconnect.

I believe mindfulness helps us reconnect with the essence of who we are, and for me our essence is our soul. Essence, or soul, is your character, feelings and motivations, it’s what makes you who you are.

Your soul is connected to Universal energy [God, Oneness, Spirit, whatever your name for it may be] and ‘knows’ everything you need to know, and has access to everything there is to know. It’s like having access the IBM super computer AI machine, but on steroids, times infinity.

A bold statement I know, however you don’t need to know everything there is to know, you just need to know you and once you know you, nothing else actually matters. Another bold statement I know but stick with me…

One of my favourite definitions of mindfulness is by Sharon Salzberg a Mindfulness Practitioner who says: “Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in a way that creates space for insight.” Creating space for insight - that’s pretty powerful isn’t it? What is this insight, what will it tell you, and how will it make you feel? How will it change your life for the better, how long does it take to come through? So many questions and the answers are different for everyone.

This is where Soul Plan comes in. Soul Plan is a powerful and accurate system of life purpose guidance, spiritual counselling and healing. This ancient system of soul purpose analysis works on a conscious and unconscious level to bring you greater freedom, connection, satisfaction, healing and life/soul purpose activation. 

A Soul Plan Reading is based on the sound vibration of your birth name, as it appears on your birth certificate, and will analyse your life in terms of your talents, goals, potential, lessons and obstacles. Rooted in the ancient text of Sefer Yetzirah, and channeled by the visionary Frank Alper, its current format includes new interpretations, affirmations, elements of numerology.

If you have ever felt lost or disconnected, certain that there must be something more to life, a Soul Plan Reading will help you reconnect with the essence of who you truly are.

Your Soul Plan Reading helps clear redundant blockages, a clarity unfolds and you will start to naturally re-align with your true self and your soul purpose. You will notice that your life starts to flow in a far more creative, joyful and abundant way, with new meaning and direction.

Advice is also given on how to overcome challenges (challenge management) and how best reach your goals – it is very common to experience big shifts in your life and circumstances. Through the Universal law of grace there are many old patterns you can choose to let go of.

This is an alternative, powerful and effective process that reconnects you with you, and I like to call it soulfulness rather than mindfulness.
