S is for Soul

It's week nineteen of Alphabe-Thursday!

S is for Soul...

As you can probably guess I am a big believer in the soul. I believe we are all spiritual beings with a soul who choose to incarnate as humans so we can experience life. I believe many of us are 'old souls' who have lived on Earth in some other incarnation in the past. I believe our souls reincarnate again and again to learn more and to experience more. 

I've always had an affinity with Ancient Egypt. As long as I can remember I've been fascinated by the culture, the spirituality, and the magnificent temples of the ancient Egyptian people. When I moved to London in 2004 my plan was to organise a trip to Egypt as soon as possible. I'd dreamt about going there since I was a little girl and I was determined to make it happen. In 2005 I finally got to fulfil that dream.

The interesting part of this story is that I actually won a holiday to Egypt! I entered the competition in a magazine and won a trip for two. I'd never won anything in my life and wouldn't you know it - I haven't won anything since! I believe it was part of my soul's destiny to go to Egypt because I believe my soul once lived as an Egyptian scribe (it's no coincidence that I'm a writer again in this life). That's why I won that trip - the universe was sending me there because Egypt was calling me home.

I believe all this because of the great shift that happened within me and in my life while I was in Egypt. I felt such peace while I was there, a peace I'd never experienced before. I felt in tune with energy for the first time. I could feel the spirit of Egypt in every temple stone and when I looked at The Nile I felt at home. There is no other way to describe it. It was the most powerful experience of my life. My time in Egypt opened me up spiritually, it reminded me of my spiritual essence, and from then on I was connected to my soul.  

I've spoken to many spiritually-minded people and we all share this common belief - that the place we are drawn to, the place that holds our attention from an early age, for no apparent reason, is most certainly one of the places we lived during a past life. Our souls have been here before and they will return again once we are gone. In that way, we can all live forever. That's a comforting thought, isn't it?

  4. I also like the idea of reincarnation and destiny. I can't say if it's true or not, but it feels right. That's great that you won your trip to Egypt - it was just meant to be! {:-Deb

  5. I love Egypt too ! I have visited all sites several times and now I go there in November just to fill me in with light and sunshine to bring me over the winter. This year will be the 13 time. Thanks to Egyptian cats I started blogging in 2006. I was looking for Egyptian cat goddess and documentary and ended up with a blog ! That's also destiny !!

  6. i love that idea! it speaks to me on so many levels. i've had the experience of seeing a place for the first time and just feeling that it is somewhere i need to be.

  7. Spirituality is So important...
