Have you ever heard or can relate to saying “pour your heart and soul into…”. Usually it is said when it has to do with someone or something you are passionate about. You know that feeling, if you can relate, to that burning fire inside the heart space that can flame up into your ears as you hear your heart beat in your head? Yeah, that’s passion. The fire, passion is what drives us conscious humans to be productive in life. For some it might be their health, fitness, a career, a cause and for others it might their family.
Passion comes in shades of flaming colors, brilliant energies, and a wide spectrum of frequencies that can be felt even in the most intimate settings. Passion is what provides the power to drive us. It’s that invisible force that can help spark love amongst the heart space within a relationship. I personally believe a great and lasting relationship is one that each person shares many of the same passions with the other.
I have a passion that drives me to be better parent and to spend time exploring and being in nature, all while inspiring others and working personally with clients. My dear significant other also shares many of the same passions. My love, the father of my child, is adapting to his temporary life in a cast. I’m adapting to my soul being constantly poured out, and my physical body and mind running on empty and on carb fuel.
My body is beginning to suffer or become slightly imbalanced with the morning donut I had this morning. Geeze, I think I had 2 donuts in one post, just last week. My weight has been fluctuating. I had lost another 5 pounds before Austin, but quickly gained it back the time I was there. Don’t even get me started about the lack of time in the gym… I miss my ab class that I was taking.
My mind is also beginning to just feel unbalanced too! I am forgetful. I’ve been feeling unorganized but in reality I’ve only been getting MORE organized. I have just been going and going, one micro-plan by micro-plan. On top of that things are taking 30 min longer to accomplish. It’s exhausting and I am relying on caffeine so much more than I ever have. I’m also too busy feeding baby and organizing and cleaning to remember to eat. Yeah. My mind is totally imbalanced.
So that leaves me to rely on my soul. The third pillar that I live by. How am I still functioning as a conscious human being? My soul. What drives my soul… My passions. Who or what is my passion? My lil family, my health, and helping my clients achieve their health and fitness goals. Every one of my passions I “pour my heart and soul into”.
So if I am pouring and pouring and pouring, what fills the cup? My passion fire is what warms up the cup and whatever feelings and love that fills it. This past weekend I relied on my friends, to fill my cup, my soul, with love and happiness. The contents of the cup is to only be warmed by my passion and to be poured out to who love, who I inspire, or work personally with. This is how I function, and have been conscious of this for years. How do you manage your spiritual energy? It’s definitely part of your overall health.
My spiritual health has improved and strengthened through this experience. The soul needs to be in good working condition if the other pillars are crumbling. I will use this energy to help rebuild what has crumbled. My body will improve functioning with my diet because it’s an imbedded passion of mine to eat whole, organic, local and non-GMO foods. My mind will begin to refocus after I am in a place where I can feel surrounded by nature.
Keeping the cup of my soul filled will help me keep the passion in my heart worth burning strong. I have to give credit to one very kind soul I met years ago that explained this to me. It’s been my go to mantra to imagine and meditate on this concept. Maybe this blog post helps inspire you, the reader, to realize what fills your cup and what fuels the flame that keeps it warm.
