What happens when you don’t listen to your soul?
What happens if you don’t listen to an innocent, vulnerable child when they are trying to tell you something important?
What happens if you don’t listen to an incredible, strong and wise elder when they are trying to warn you, guide you, solve a problem for you, heal you, offer you insights, or support you?
When someone is constantly ignored they tend to feel worthless. It inhibits their growth of self-worth and personal value. This is humiliating. They become defensive as a result. However, a wise person won’t hold it against you if you ignore them. When a wise person offers you help and you reject it because you think you know better, then you can expect them to stand back and watch you make your own mistakes from afar. They won’t be meddling in what you are trying to do. But they will always be ready to help when you are ready to honour and respect them. Then all you have to do is ask.
When you don’t esteem the innocent and wise aspects of your soul, your ego suffers the shame and humiliation instead. Your self esteem and self regard is reduced. If this situation continues for too long, then your health may be compromised.
Listening to your soul has the potential to be good for your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
