The Courage to Follow Your Heart
by Tara Moorman

What in your life is calling you?
When all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the lists laid aside,
and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest.
What still pulls on your soul,
in the silence between your heartbeats
hides a summons.
Do you hear it?
Name it , if you must,
or leave it forever nameless,
but why pretend it is not there?
By: Therma Collective, "The Box"

What in your life is calling you, what pulls on your soul? Are you living your dream? If not, why not? Barbara Brennan says, "Every creative act manifests first as consciousness in the core, then as our intention in the haric level, then as our life energies in the auric level that later well up into the physical universe. When these energies flow directly from the core star through the haric level of our life task, through the auric level of our personality, and through our physical bodies, we create health and joy in our lives. This is "light emerging". I, like many people I know, have spent years blocking and silencing this creative light only to find that it's really not possible to deny our creative nature because to do so would be to deny nature itself. Blocking your creative energy can mean health problems, emotional problems, family and relationship problems.

Sometimes it takes a health crisis for the soul to get our attention. That's what happened to me! I finally had to face the fact that for eighteen years I had denied and silenced my creative and spiritual self.
I had become a "human doing" instead of a "human being". I had to make big changes in my life which meant speaking honestly, from the heart, with my family and employer. You see, for someone who had built a successful sales and marketing career and was a classic workaholic, it was a difficult choice. However, once I made the decision to follow my heart it was the easiest thing I have ever done. It seems it is far more difficult to deny Who You Are than to accept it. I meditated, enlisted help from my angels, used Reiki self treatments, Healing Touch and asked for support from my family and friends. I am now living my dream of being an artist and channel for healing through visual art expression. I celebrate each day as spirit and the universe dreams a more expansive dream for me than I even imagined.

An example of this is my Soul Essence Paintings. A friend once asked me to meditate on the essence of her and her husband's souls and create a painting for their bedroom. I was intrigued and did as she asked. I prepared to paint, meditated, and received a very distinct "mood" for this painting. As I approached the paper, still open to the meditation, the painting seemed to paint itself. I channeled an ancient healing temple on a purple amethyst mountain. After painting, I started writing and much to my surprise a story came to accompany the painting. The Soul Essence Painting and the story were well received and before long I started receiving many commissions.

Through intention and openness I am a vehicle that provides visual representation of one's soul; to create healing that can be accessed through the optic nerve that brings clarity and balance to their lives. This is my soul's purpose that has been calling me.
What calls to you? Spirit, the Universe, your Angels and Guides, are waiting for you to say the words, "I have courage, I am following my heart and I know I have your support." Be still, be open, meditate, listen and act. Then buckle your seat belt and enjoy the ride!
