How to Activate Your Soul and Find Your Purpose

Are you feelin’ stuck or uncertain of your purpose in life? Do you find questioning if this is “it”? I get it. I used to serve beers and steaks, making $30,000 and year, yet I longed for more purpose. I felt unfulfilled.  I knew there was the potential for greatness within me. I desired to feel passionate about something and make a bigger impact, but I had no idea where to start. Sound familiar?

If you can relate, then this article is for you because so many people in the Pause Universe feel a similar pull to something MORE. They feel an inner calling to discover their true purpose and make a difference. The problem is that they don’t know where to start or how to go about it.

Here’s the good news, though: your SOUL knows exactly what you need to do to find your purpose and live it. And it’s not as difficult as you may think. In fact, it’s quite simple when you know how to activate your soul. This is exactly what I’m going to guide you to do in this article.

But first…

What is “Activating Your Soul”? 

Activating your soul means connecting with the part of you that is eternal, infinite, and wise. It means tuning into your intuition and higher guidance so that you can receive messages about what your soul wants you to do next. It is a process of becoming more attuned to your authentic self so that you can align your life with your deepest truths. 

Why is it Important to Activate Your Soul? 

When you activate your soul, you begin to remember who you REALLY are. You remember that you are not just a human being having a human experience—you are a spiritual being having a human experience. This remembrance can be profoundly transformative because it allows you to see yourself, and life itself, in a whole new light. 

It also allows you to access previously hidden aspects of yourself, such as your creativity, intuition, and wisdom. As you connect with these aspects of yourself, you start to get a clearer sense of your purpose. You start to see the bigger picture and how everything fits together. All of sudden, the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place, and you can see how your unique talents and gifts can be used to make a difference in the world. 

When we allow ourselves to create spaciousness from the structured human mind, we open ourselves up to infinite potential and magic.

How to Activate Your Soul 

There are many ways to activate your soul. Some people find that breathwork, meditation, or prayer helps them to center themselves and clear their minds so they can hear the soft whisperings of their souls. Others find journaling or spending time in nature helps them to connect with their inner guidance. There is no “right” way to do it—the key is simply to experiment until you find what works for you.  What works for me is a combination of all of the above. I do breathwork, journal, and spend time in nature regularly because I know it helps me to feel more connected to my authentic self.

If you’re not sure where to start, here are 3 simple practices that I do every day that can help you begin activating your soul, too: 

Practice #1: Ground & Expand Your Energy Field

I start by putting my feet on the ground and connecting with my breath. Then, I allow my energy to flow up through the top of my head and open up. I visualize my energy going up through the planet, through the stars, and opening up my energy fields. As this energy comes in, it touches my heart and amplifies, moving through every cell of my body. This helps me to feel more connected with my body and the earth while also expanding my consciousness so that I can receive messages from my higher self. 

Practice #2: Become Aware of Duality

I stand and hold both hands out in front of my body. My left hand is a representation of my humanness, my parts, my inner child, my thoughts, my fears, my doubts, my, you know, all of my, my wonders, my curiosity, my dream, all of that kind of stuff. And then, my right hand is a representation of my essence and my soul. And I hold the duality, and I feel into the energy of both.  As I become aware of the duality, it helps me to remember that there is more to life than just what I can see and touch in the physical world. 

Practice #3: Somatic Practices

I do somatic practices like breathwork, shaking, moving, and sounding. I do “parts work” to heal my humanness so that I can open up more to my soul. This allows me to be more of who I am and expand into new possibilities.

The benefits of Activating Your Soul Regularly

The more you practice activating your soul, the easier it becomes. You’ll find that you can access your intuition and guidance more easily and that you feel more connected to your authentic self. As you become more attuned to your soul, you’ll also find that life starts to flow more easily. Synchronicities will start to happen more frequently, and you’ll be better able to navigate the challenges that come up.

Regular soul activation also allows you to live more from a place of purpose. As you get clear about your gifts and how you can use them to make a difference in the world, you’ll find that your life starts to take on new meaning. You’ll be more motivated to do the things that matter to you, and you’ll start living in alignment with your values.

When I personally do these practices regularly, I open my system up and welcome in the wisdom of my soul that’s available. It fuels me and reignites my clarity and mission in a whole new way.

Just recently, I was at a 4-day meditation retreat where we did daily energy work and somatic practices just like the ones I’ve shared with you here, and when my teacher asked us, “What is your purpose?” it became astoundingly clear…

My soul came here to party.

The reason I’m so passionate about spreading the medicine of breathwork is that breathwork is a tool that can help people release the trauma, stories, and pain that’s blocking them from experiencing their soul essence and the joy of life. When we clear out the gunk, we can remember who we are and why we’re here.

All that’s left after that is heaven on earth and an unshakable sense of peace, no matter what’s happening in the external world.

So there you have it – 3 simple practices that will help you activate your soul and discover your purpose. If you want to start living a life that feels good and that is in alignment with your soul, I encourage you to begin practicing these simple techniques on a regular basis. The more you do them, the easier they’ll become, and the more you’ll start to feel like yourself again. I hope you’ll give them a try and let me know how they work for you. Until next time, beautiful soul – keep shinin’ brightly!
