A Beautiful Soul


I think that the first thing people have to consider when trying to make a beautiful comeback in their lives is their soul. One definition of the soul is ” the immaterial part of a human being such as personality, intellect, will, and emotions.” If that’s true, then how we act, think, believe, and feel are the driving force of our souls. Yet, another definition describes our soul as the core of our lives and energy which is a unique expression of the divine which we call spirit. If that’s true then the entire energy in which we live our lives is an open display of our soulish intentions.

We have to purify our minds and our hearts to cleanse our souls of all the garbage that’s keeping us stuck and in cycles of repetitive chaos. In other words, what’s causing us to need the comeback in the first place? Just ponder that thought for a second.

In essence, whether we are coming out of a bad relationship, recovering from some addiction, rebuilding after a financial disaster, or something else, we are the common denominator. So what in our soulish realm attracts situations that we need to recover from?

We need to cleanse our souls. There’s so much clutter and bottled-up emotions associated with various experiences that we’ve had in our lives and it just needs to be cleaned out. All of that clutter is blocking the free-flowing energy that we need to live in the now. We have to face the monster within and get free from the hold that it has on us and that starts with honesty. It starts with being honest with ourselves about what’s really going on inside our hearts.


It’s Time To Stand Spiritually Naked In The Mirror & Ask The Real Question “Who AM I Really?”

Anger – Are you angry at someone? Let it go. Yet, in order to let the anger go, you’ve got to first admit that you’re angry. Maybe you don’t feel mad, but if you take a hard look into the mirror of your soul, you’ll see that incident playing over and over in your mind, constantly reminding you of what happened. The recurring story is stopping you from progressing forward. Only you can stop the replay.

Hurt – Do you feel betrayed? Get help. It’s easy to feel hurt or betrayed and it’s even worse when it’s by someone you love or trust. However, in order to cleanse your soul, you have to find a way to get over the pain. I recently went through a very painful situation. It was weighing heavy on my heart, mind, and soul. The first thing I had to do was to acknowledge that I was hurt. We live in a society of false appearances. People only want to see happy posts and the bright side of things on social media. But in real life, you’ve got to acknowledge when you’re truly hurt or disappointed.

Once, you’ve acknowledged it, you’ve got to determine what you’re going to do about it. One thing is for sure, you can’t ignore it. You have to deal with it. What are you going to do with the pain, huh? This is a silly comparison, but I think it will make sense to you in the end. It’s like frying some chicken and then just letting the grease sit and sit. At some point, you have to dump that dirty oil or you’ll lose the use of the pot. In the same sense, you’ve got to dump that pain or it will contaminate your soul. It will block your happiness and clog your future experiences.

There’s some pain that can be dumped through meditation and prayer but then there’s other pain that requires outside help. I recently experience that other kind of pain. I had to get counseling. I couldn’t overcome the situation on my own. That’s when I reached out to a therapist, in that area of my pain, that could help me. I also followed up with intense ministry and continued meditation and prayer. My soul was afflicted. My heart was broken into a million pieces; I was truly hurt. Here’s another silly example. If you accidentally scrape your finger, you can clean it and put a bandage on it. However, if you cut your finger to the bone, you are going to need some professional help. A doctor or nurse can stop the bleeding, stitch the wound, and dress it so that you can heal properly.

Too many people are walking around with serious inflictions in their souls, and they are trying to self-heal, but it’s not working. You have to be able to identify when you have a scrape and when you have a deep cut. You have to know when you’re losing too much blood. GET HELP! You have to let someone in so that they can bring you out of the fire of your pain. I can tell you that soooo much freedom comes from facing and releasing it.

Shame – Are you harboring the shame of the past? Shame can stem from some mistake you may have made in the past and you’re still embarrassed about it. That kind of shame can hold you hostage to a past mistake and prevent you from moving forward in the future. Here’s what I think, if you own that mistake and learn from it, then you should free yourself from the shame of it. If you’re having a hard time doing that then get some professional help, but you’ve got to let it go! Do not worry about what other people think or say about you, get it right for yourself and move on. Sometimes, the shame can come from what your spouse or child or some other family member did. Yet, here’s the thing, God gave all of us freedom of choice. You cannot pay the price for someone else’s choices. When the weight of someone else’s choices feels heavy on your shoulders, pray for them. Do not carry that burden. When they run across your mind, pray for them and let them go.

You’re probably wondering, “how can I just let stuff go?” Grant it, it’s not easy to just let stuff go. So, I’m going to teach you a method that I learned in a critical thinking workshop. Here’s how you let stuff go, outside of getting the help you need and doing the self-work to improve yourself. You have to be conscious of your thoughts. Your thought, “I can’t believe (XY&Z) happened,” Meet the thought with a calm mind and respond, “yes (XY&Z) did happen, but I’m so glad that I’ve gotten beyond it and the beauty that came out of that situation was (XY&Z).” I learned so much about myself, and I’m a better person because of the strength that it took to overcome it. Marvin Sapp said it best in his song, Never Would Have Made It, “I’m stronger, I’m wiser, I’m better, much better.” Joyce Myers said that “your mind is like a garden, and if you don’t cut down the weeds, they will take over the plants.” Negative thoughts are weeds, your response to those thoughts are the cutters, and the garden is what flourishes when you cut down the negativity with your mental responses to them.

Unblock Your Soul – Let pure energy flow. Whatever the situation is find a way to let it go. Take an honest inventory of what’s going on inside of your soul. Make peace with yourself and others to ensure that your heart is in the right place. The soul is a real area that needs redemption and peace because that is where your pure energy derives from and it’s who you really are. So, I ask you, who are you really?

Let’s Get The Ugly Out – And the beauty in.
There’s beauty in letting go of stinking thinking, ill intentions, and judgemental connotations. Releasing anger, hurt, and shame is only a portion of the equation, but truly monitoring how you think and how you treat other people can help you to illuminate pure energy. I’m learning how to clean up my attitude and interact with other people in a beautiful way despite the circumstances.

Quick story, a friend of mine had asked me to look out for her mom. Her mom was traveling from New York, but my friend would not be home to greet her because she was working late. I honestly thought she had said a later time at which her mom would be coming. Therefore, I had planned my entire morning. I had laid the baby down for a nap, and I was ready to work out.

The doorbell rang. The dog went crazy at the sound of it. I was angry and began to complain about whoever was ringing the doorbell and waking up my baby. I completely ignored it.  The person kept ringing it, so I became irate and said some really mean things because this person was screwing up my morning plans. After about 5 minutes, I finally went to see who was at the door. I had the angriest look on my face. I was rude in asking, “what do you want?” Well, guys, I discovered that it was my friend’s mom. She had been ringing the doorbell for 5 minutes. She was standing on that porch with her things, and I was rude as hell. Excuse my language, but it’s true.

Needless to say, I apologized a million times. I helped her bring her things inside. I felt horrible because of how I had acted. I acted that way because I had plans and someone was interfering with them. It just so happened that my friend’s mom was earlier than expected, and I didn’t know. I said to her, ” I’m sorry; if I had known it was you, I would have definitely had a better attitude.” After I got her settled, the Lord dropped some wisdom down in my spirit.

I discovered that my attitude should always be on point. I should always be welcoming and beautiful toward people. It shouldn’t have mattered who was at that door, I could have been kind and generous in seeing what they wanted. I’m not saying that I should have let a stranger inside, or put myself in any danger by being too welcoming, but I shouldn’t have to adjust my attitude based on who I’m encountering. A beautiful soul is always beautiful no matter the situation. The truth is that sometimes we have our plans and then the day takes a different turn and moves us in a different direction. It’s how we handle the change that matters the most.

God’s word says that “all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose.” So no matter how the day turns and changes, it’s going to work out for the good. A beautiful soul is open and flexible. It’s beautiful and caring. It’s loving and peaceful. It’s the same no matter how and when you encounter it.

I recently discovered that my soul is beautiful when things are going my way. It’s beautiful when things are on schedule or going according to plan. It’s beautiful when I’m getting the results that I want out of a situation. I’m eagerly working to change that because I want to operate in pure energy. I want the beauty of my soul to illuminate all who encounter me.

Self Examination Is The Best Way To Expose Your Soul – Prayer, Meditation, and Personal Development is the best way to clean it. An honest overview of how you think and act will help reveal the true colors of your heart. Don’t take anything for granted. For instance, I could’ve felt justified in behaving the way that I did. After all, no one really saw it. Yet, I took the time to examine myself and found that my behavior was deeper than just a doorbell ringing, it was my inability to be flexible when unexpected things happen that disrupts what I want to happen. My soul was exposed. My issues were on display. It showed me exactly what I needed to pray about and the area that I needed to improve.

Meditate – It helps. I like meditation because it’s in the conscious but silent moments where deeper afflictions of the soul can be revealed. Not only does meditation bring up issues that need to be resolved, but it exposes deep hurt, anger, or shame that needs to be handled. Meditation can help lead you to that scripture or philosophy that can help reframe circumstances in a more positive light. It helps to shed light on the dark places of your soul so that you can see them. My favorite time to meditate is in the mornings. I like to wake up before my baby, light a nice sandalwood incent, turn on some meditation music, and just sit. A lot of times I’ll see the sun come up and hear the birds chirping. I just allow my thoughts to come and go. At some point, certain thoughts are obviously stronger than others and those are things that I go into prayer about.

I Want To Have A Beautiful Soul – Do You? There are people walking this earth that just illuminate light and good energy. They’ve discovered how to lay down their ego, repel negativity, overcome past hurts and pain, avoid prejudice and judgments and wish goodwill to all men. You will not find these people sitting up gossiping or engaging in toxic behavior. They just have a beautiful soul. You can see it in their eyes. You can feel it in their energy. What a lovely way to be.
