Listening Between the Lines

So simple it is to get caught up in the glamour of it all when the simple is even more exquisite. Going forward with only an inkling of where we might land is what God asks of us each day. We do it and surprise often meets us in the middle and gives us the meaning of our existence. Life is for being aware of the Spirit in all things and to learn how to find our true nature that we may have forgotten. This requires all of us to listen between the lines and let go of what we expected and choose what shows up instead. We are here to learn how to love. It’s that simple and it’s that exquisite. The space between the lines is wordless. It is the eternal quiet that rests us if we can get in there regularly. It’s the place that is free of chatter, activity or judgment. It is pure divine love. Love is behind every communication—in between the lines and maybe not visible to all. When actors say their lines, if they are not connected to the “space between the lines,” we know it. We all know the “space.” We sometimes just forget to occupy it.

I would like to have the soul listener book be about listening to the higher realms, hearing the sound of God; listening past the mundane, past the interactions with others, past the maintenance and upkeep of the day to day and past the ego driven behaviors; so I can hear the truth of being, hear the sound current’s melody and expand into the essence, the beingness the isness we are all part of. 

What if what we listen to daily on streaming devices, radio, TV, is a tiny speck of what is actually available to be heard through our inner streaming device – our soul.  Exploring these inner spaces is an infinite opportunity of discovery. And there is no way to bring them back, record them or duplicate them. They stream from the God Head as a continual streaming of Light and sound few have heard or seen.  Yet these sounds exist eternally and are the fiber of the universe and beyond. 

To listen at those inner levels is the gift of devotion.

The listening levels are graduated so we are able to absorb and decipher them over time and not all at once. To hear even a fraction of these inaudible/audible sounds seems a far reach but is attainable. How to even begin?

Deep listening is allowing ourselves to expand past the mind, emotions, into the higher levels of our being – our soul.

I’ve been a soul listener all my life although I would not have named it so. People would say that I was a good listener. I loved Taylor Caldwell’s book the Listener and in my Doctorate in Spiritual Science Program I received the name Soul Listener as my thesis and realized that I was being shown what has been my journey here – to listen – not only to people but to the deeper levels within my own consciousness and from the depth of my soul

Being able to listen to my own inner knowing and wisdom vs seeking outside for the opinions of others has been and continues to be my opportunity for learning.  Relaxing in who I am [and not the personality/ego] has opened the place from which to express my heart, my true self.  

The beauty of this earth level is the journey we each get to experience here as we listen and tell ourselves the truth  March 2021

The essence of Soul Listening is presence. In this moment the soul is present and available. If we are scattered, pushing, distracted we are not in the Soul’s presence. When we are present, attuned in our hearts, our soul is readily available to speak and we are also available to listen. 

Much of my Soul Listening is through pen and ink on paper. When I allow myself to be absorbed into a moment to moment flow, what is to be spoken flows out onto paper without the mind’s interpretation. There is a purity and naturalness to the experience. It’s as if everyone has been asked to quiet their attention so the soul can be spoken.  

I am always in awe of being taken into this space perfectly protected and buffered from any mind chatter or concern and simply asked to listen and receive. 

And at the same time however, I can resist the “letting go into” and want to dissipate my energy into anything but listening. For me, the resistance is one more reminder of how I stop myself form simply being in the flow of God probably the easiest place to be and yet the most difficult place to willingly enter.

How honored I am when the soul speaks in a steady flow of its natural wisdom and I get to simply receive. 

Just a couple of minutes ago I was struggling to begin, making excuses why now might not be the best time to write and that one declaration of “I am here. I am receiving. Thank you.” Opened the door for my soul to enter.  Invitation is often the key.

As I patiently engage my listening heart, my soul engages my attention fully and begins to speak. 

If I try at any moment to make sense of it or figure out how I can use it – ie leave this present moment – I lose the flow and my access.

I keep inviting my soul to speak when that happens, sometimes successfully and others to no avail. 

Letting go and letting my soul be in charge is my practice of Soul Listening. Getting out of my way so the Soul can speak has been a process of cooperation.   April 2021

This is the place of peace I seek

Calm moving gently with purpose trusting the direction into which I am called forward

No need to do, simply being with this moment aware of the beauty that surrounds me

I am blessed

Moving gently with a fluidity of water weightless and effortlessly merging with all I pass by yet contained in the knowing of who I am

Meet me in the garden of loving where the divine is in everything and capturing all that is precious

I have a voice of my own with it’s own tone, it’s own message. It flows from me with grace and it is often non verbal. How to speak without talking. It is how to listen – how to be – to listen with heart, not just with ears. It is being present with all things not noticing the cold – just letting in the warmth, the heat of another human being, another heart, one that is with all things. It is loving that gives us free.

A high form of loving is listening to what a person has to say

Magical Threads wave from the sky like ribbons waving from the 

Stars – pick me – says one – pick me says another and we wait

How do I Choose?

Blue – the tread of golden wisdom full of caring

Yellow – the knowing of God’s heart

Purple = the home of our spirit – peace

Green = the freedom to be

Orange  – the sweetness of love

Red = the passion of living

Gold = illumination

May I have some of each please

Listening session  – January 21, 2015

The calm invites you in deeper to the being to the place of no-thing

From this place the listening comes and hears the divine guidance flowing through. Choices are in abundance. The wisdom is in the selection of the one that can most serve. Waiting to know honors the divine in you.  Breathe into the waiting space and be grateful to be here. 

The revealing is in Spirit’s timing and is related to your availability to receiving. 

Let the anticipation go, let the mind go

Come into this receiving space free of the world and filled with divine loving 

Let the words flow into you and watch as they arrive

Teach loving presence

Stand fully in who you are

Reach into the divine for guidance

See with the Beloved’s gaze

Look inside first

Relax fully

Trust in the divine design

Embrace all things

Love what you judge and let it go

Focus where you are 

Know you are in God’s hands

Believe in the loving that is

Set aside the disagreements you have inside – bless them

Keep returning to your own fullness

Move in the divine flow trusting the delivery and completing times

Hear the silence speaking  

Give of you, your true divine self

Step above the distractions and move back to what is

Nothing requires your attention more than the loving present  

Be grateful down to your toe tips for what is as it is here especially for you  

Take direction only if divinely sourced  

Expand how you see to include all possibilities and the infinite. 

Treasure connection with each Beloved one

Know yourself as the blessing  

Discover what your heart knows to be so  

Be enveloped completely in your true nature 

Touch with the sacred tender loving heart alive and flowing in your hands

Let go completely into the loving

Laugh your heart’s delight 

Stay with, be still, come in   

Silence holds us in the divine stillness   

Arrive to this moment fully committed to being with
