Soul Revivals can also come in a variety of ways.
My Soul Revival came in my late teenage years. After working for over 16 hours in the fields with no food, I was exhausted and resting on top of a rock. I suddenly noticed the intricate webbing of veins in a giant fig tree leaf above me. This image left me with the strong message that my life’s work would be to channel the currents of wisdom and knowledge of ancient teachings and unite them to serve for greater healing.
Our Souls are much deeper and more expansive than our conscious minds. Our Souls possess qualities about ourselves that we aren’t even aware of and may never discover. We might experience Soul Revival once, or many times, but it always reveals to us something about the gifts we were born with and the quality of our essence that we must share with others.
Understanding why we were born with our own unique soul qualities (and not others) is the center of learning how to relate to ourselves. Just like a seed that lets its seedling learn how to grow, our Soul is the sacred essence of our deepest purpose, our unique meaning, and the guiding force behind our individual lives.
There are three main layers to uncover within our Souls, and these are our:
- Core Values or the beliefs and ideals we hold so strong at our centers that we’d be ready to die as we can’t imagine living without them.
- Core Gifts or the natural talents or abilities we were born with that contribute to our Souls maturation and that we are exceptionally good at.
- Core Wisdom or the mysterious knowledge we know without knowing how – much intuition comes from this core wisdom we’re born to manifest.

Our Soul always communicates to us through the universal languages of symbols, senses, and sounds, e.g. through images, songs or stories. These symbols, sensations, and sounds teach us about the very core of our lives and teach us about our ultimate place in the world. It’s up to us to learn how to incarnate that message by living our lives in a “soul fulfilled” way.
6 WAYS TO DISCOVER YOUR SOUL’S MESSAGE
I’ve heard amazing experiences of people who carefully listened to their Soul’s message after a Soul Revival experience.
One person saw turbulent rivers, and they understood that their purpose was to help serve as a guide to help others cross the currents of life. Another saw a cocoon and felt that their gift was to be a healer helping others through the process of metamorphosis through massage therapy. Some saw mirrors reflecting the depths of the Soul, others saw a wolf hunting prey with fierce dexterity. There is an infinite number of messages.
There are no right or wrong ways for the Soul to speak to you as the messages are all as unique as the Soul they arise from.
There are literally dozens of ways I’ve conducted Soul Revival exercises but there are a few that we’ve already written about previously that go into the details and specifics. Being a Shaman, I prefer nature-oriented techniques, but many styles of meditation and yoga provide wonderful catalysts especially the more active forms. The use of psychedelics, fasting, and vision quest practices are also used but require prior preparation and mature guidance.
Cultures for thousands of years have used lucid dreaming to facilitate transformation, personal understanding, and communicating with Spirit beings through the rich landscapes of our nocturnal visions.
Every dream is an opportunity to relate deeper with our unconscious minds, that which lies underneath our conscious identities and personalities. Your stories, desires, potentials and Soul gifts manifest themselves in your dreams. We must learn to look for the door in our dreams that will let us into the mysteries of our Soul.
If you’ve ever watched dervish dancing you’ll see how mystical and beautiful it looks.
The spinning in circles and the rhythm of the beat allows the dancers to quiet their conscious identities chatter and enter trance states, making themselves receptive to their Soul’s melody.
