It's been a while since we looked at the soul huh...
I mean... we've been on quite the world journey, all the way from Egypt and Greece, to the Polynesian Islands and the frozen tundra of Siberia and northern Canada while looking at how different people think about their souls.
But while it's great telling stories and myths... how practical really is it? How can we conceptualise our soul today? If science was ever to take a Great Leap Forward and actually prove the soul existed... how would actually go about doing that? And what would it even look like?
I guess what I'm getting at is... we've come a long way in the evolution of our species, but are we really any closer to understanding the most fundamental aspect of our consciousness? Really... what does the soul look like in today's world? And how can we tap into it?
Well... since the 60s, the New Age Movement has been growing and building off the ideas put forward by the Theosophists of the 19th and 20th centuries, and they have some pretty cool ideas about why we're here and how our soul fits into the picture of our lives (and yes... I don't just mean this one).
Today, we're diving into the whole thing... we're taking cues from the Theosophists and the New Age community at large to unveil the mysteries of the modern soul and finally answer that BIG question... if it really exists, how can we go about proving it?
We'll look at some of the experiments people have done to show the soul's existence... and explain why they often fail -hint... it's 'cause they haven't integrated the experiential aspect of our consciousness. Trust me... this'll be the grand finale to our soul show, you don't wanna miss it!
But, do you wanna know the best part?
We're releasing this under the watchful gaze of Chiron himself... as the Season of the Centaur approaches, Sagittarius always takes aim and helps us hit our mark. Between November 22nd and December 21st he will gallop onto the scene here at Spirit Mysteries and guide us all to nurture our soul.
I hope you're as excited as we are to welcome him in!
Love & Light
