What is Soul Work, Anyway?

When you hear the term Soul Work, what happens inside you?

Is there something that breathes a little deeper, finds a little more space for an aspect of you that gets very little attention (but keeps eating at you 24/7)?

It goes beyond career planning – far beyond that! We are so much more than our jobs – thank goodness!!

However, the workplace is a great place to start the inquiry. We spend so many hours a day earning a living.

And, if you aren’t working, you’re probably thinking about finding a job.

And you are looking at retirement, you want to know the next phase of life is meaningful and rewarding.

Here’s a working definition of Soul Work from my perspective – what will you add to it?

  • You are living in alignment with your values (do you know what they are?)
  • You feel a sense of progress (not perfection) and growth
  • You feel a sense of safety – you are not being trampled and traumatized(that doesn’t mean you’re not scared, because risks abound)
  • You feel seen and heard, valued and appreciated (when you are expressing yourself authentically)
  • You are endlessly fascinated by the topic(s) you put your attention on (rabbit hole after rabbit hole)
  • You feel “well used” by Spirit when you do this work (it feels like “the Zone”)
  • You love learning and growing within your area of curiosity; you can’t wait to get back to it every time – even when it’s hard  (just because it’s easy for you, doesn’t mean it’s your soul work)
  • You enjoy the people you meet on this soul work path (colleagues, collaborators, peers, fellow students)
  • You think about it a lot! (I never stop!)
  • You feel like you are who you were born to be (and that aspect is always growing with you)

What it isn’t:

  • Boring
  • Soul destroying
  • Abusive
  • Crazy-making (some aspects might be as you learn your craft)
  • Dead-end (nowhere to go but down)
  • Risk-free (you might feel like you are leaping off a cliff because it’s so important to you – when you care, it’s scary sometimes)
  • Secure (until you know where your security really lies – then, it’s the most secure thing in the world)
  • Depressing (as in you can’t be yourself, and can’t express yourself)
  • Consistently Exhausting (unless you are on fire with your first publishing deadline!)
