Listening Between the Lines

The Ring in Me

Being you, being me

The freedom of it all

To touch, to be loved to receive of the Spirit

To hold for myself inside the vision of that preciousness of my own energy

Willing to risk it all to have that essence shine forth

To be in the fullness of who I am – in grace with the heart of the Traveler in me.

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

Soul Listener – Idea for a book in 1998

That’s a wonderful book title. It’s like Horse Whisperer

Soul Listening is an art. It requires weeding out a lot of stuff. – distractions from our mind and emotions, clutter around us so we create clear space from which to listen

Soul listeners know that what really matters is at the core of our being and that is the master to listen to

Soul listeners have a peaceful presence when they listen to you the give you their full attention and you can feel the attention they are paying to God

Soul Listeners are the peacemakers. They listen to the master of us all and they act from the quiet place in their being.  When you meet a soul listener you recognize them but perhaps you would see them as someone who is uplifting to be with, or someone who seems to peaceful or someone who offers little advice if any, someone who pays attention to what you are saying.

I am a soul listener in training.

Finding that thread that is my soul and following that is my challenge. My mind can sometimes trick me into paying attention to it instead. Discernment is key

We all know where we are bullshitting ourselves. So we can usually detect soul from mind.

Souls require our attention in order to nourish us and provide us with our understanding.

We must be soul listeners if we are intending to go home to God

Soul Listeners pay attention to the quiet, they listen to the levels underneath the words.

I am finally getting to live at the level beneath all the words, meaning when the phone is ringing people are talking, the TV is on it’s pretty hard to listen underneath.

A soul listener in training needs time to practice without all the worldly distractions.

Learning any new practice takes time. Devoting time is the key

What is it I am hearing now

What’s under all the outer movement is what I call a river of peace with an audible yet indescribably sound. It is the sound of peace, the sound of no thing, the sound of profound silence. I think everyone knows the pace of profound silence except those perhaps in crowded cities.

The silent inner river of peace flows continually and anyone can join the river and be in ths silent motion. When I am in that river I know my soul.

I want to stop and nap and Blue entourages me to continue

It’s the quitting feeling I am having, the one who wants to give up just when it could be getting good..  So stick it out- call yourself forward and go to the next level with this.

I get butterflies when I try to listen to the quiet when I first approach. Any ideas. [Asking of Spirit]

Just watch them and keep your eye on the goal. That’s key. Pretend they are just passing through. This is the shaky place John spoke about – just hang in the silence and wait for the next instruction.  You are very solid remember that.

Keep walking into that river and claim the huge peace you are. Bring forward your divine nature and walk in it for all to drink of.. You are becoming the walking prayer.

Keeping very slow will assist. You will be given everything you need when you are at this listening level.

Beloved child

Awake, glory is yours

The Lord is here now.

You can relax

Don’t go to sleep

Stay awake so you

Can see the glory.

Patience is the calling

Prayer invokes patience

And patience will guide you form here on

God lives in peace

Patience lives in slow.

Be watchful to stay in God’s peace always

Speak only what is God’s message 0 the rest let go silent

Practice being the Soul Listener. Listening is the key to patience

It’s easy to speak. Not speaking requires patience

The river of light calls to you. Breath in it and travel in it. It will be your freedom.

I feel anxious when I think of not talking yet I have always wanted to feel safe not talking.

Catch the wave and soar to your soul’s knowing of divine inspiration. My child you are gifted, keep going.

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.   

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

The flow on this level is not always constant. When it arrives and you flow with and receive you are being anointed.  And then you keep moving grateful for the respit with You the divine You. And you keep making yourself available to the next time. And in the meantime you keep moving, doing and participating.

Magical Threads

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

A bouquet of threads entwined with the divine

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  

Listening session  – August 2, 2021

Asking for guidance continually would serve you well. Know that you are living in multi-dimensional consciousness continually and attuning to all the levels is the “letting go into.”  Welcome to your next level.  Notice how your breath just let go.  There is nothing to do in this place other than to receive the blessing of getting to be here. Keep asking for greater and greater access to who you are on all levels. 

The following flowed out on paper:

Flow with the stream of God running through you. Know the divine residence that exists in you as you.

Give over the worry and concern as they are not real yet powerful creators if that continues to be your focus.

See past what you think you know and ask to be shown the reality.

Sitting in your own presence uninterrupted is a blessed gift.

Calm is palpable to those witnessing.

Choose the inner calm presence of being, continually.

Hold with your consciousness until it reaches into the eternal sound and Light of the Beloved you are.

Know past all things into essence.

Love yourself right back to this moment when you leave.

Your own truth is your neutral knowing

Bring your viewing point as high as you are able

The place we think we can’t live without is actually alive inside

Keep aliveness in your Spirit as your intention.

Surrender all thinking to the knowing.

Reside in the expansion

Watch with curiosity what takes up the bulk of your thinking and attention

Ask your attention to move into that which is.

Be a place of divine reverence.

Flow with letting go of any – against.

Function in your divine knowing as often as possible.

Deepen your attunement to what is the reality living inside of you. Go directly to the God in you each moment for what is needed now.

Listening session  – August 29, 2022

Fully immerse yourself in what is letting the mind chatter go quiet.

Atune the consciousness to the higher love.

Seek what is of loving

Ask for a blessing often and dwell in the receiving

Allow your being to direct your flow

Keep transitioning to the higher love

Stay attuned to the inner vibrational frequency that is who you are

Stay awake to the higher realms working through you

Reach into the divine running through

Stand forward in the nowness

Speak less, watch more

Reside in the presence

Awaken the heart’s conversation beyond the words being spoken

Vibrate to the frequency of living loving

Keep updating yourself to this moment’s offering

Serve with the intention of simply being loving

Give over to the higher plan taking place even if invisible

Lift above your mind’s habit of thinking it knows to the heart’s experience of truth

Listening Between the Lines

I am purified, I am healed, I am emptied of pain.

I am filling me with glory now – the glory of the Holy Spirit of Grace

I am quiet tender moments, trusting my own inner mover and moving in my own timing.

Listening to my voice following my own will that is God’s will.

I am lifted up among the heavens sitting with the angels of time ready to speak my peace.
