one-on-one soul-voice meditation sessions
to begin or to deepen your practice of going inward to hear (and then take action) on the truth you find within you
There will never be a voice outside of you that is wiser than your soul-voice or holds more authority over what is best for you.
You need guidance and support not to follow someone else’s truth but to remain loyal to your own.
The soul-voice meditation is a practice I created from my exposure to the history of Christian contemplative prayer while in seminary, specifically in the form of the Byzantine mystics known as Hesychasts. Hesychasm originates in the Eastern Orthodox Church and dates back to at least as early as the 4th century.
Hesychia is Greek for stillness, rest, and silence. Hesychasm was a contemplative practice for hermits and male monastics to go within and meet with that voice that doesn’t need words. The voice beneath the voice of the ego. The soul-voice.
I am quite clearly the antithesis to a 4th-century male monastic. I was, however, somewhat of an urban nun after three years of seminary. And the ancient Hesychast and I had one pivotal commonality, a red thread that bound us: the desire to always be aware of the divine.
So, I took the spiritual tool the Heschasts provided of turning inward and focusing all of my attention into a space called “heart,” a space of limitless truth inside me. And I began a daily meditation practice of going inward, to open to that stillness in the heart, and to the presence of my soul that would never fail to meet me there.
What I found from my soul-voice meditation practice over the years is that it allows me to know one invaluable thing: my own truth.
It lets me hear my own voice, even amid the pressures of external expectations, or especially, internalized one.
And what I have found is that everything becomes possible (again) when I meet with the truth inside me, when I meet with that love that just never ends. The soul-voice meditation is a spiritual tool for seekers of all religious traditions to be able to go within no matter where we are and connect to the voice of truth inside us.
It’s a tool that helps us discern between the voice of fear and the voice of love. That sounds wildly simplistic. But I’ve found that it really is this simple. I’ve found that we tend to already know the answers to the questions we’re seeking. What’s hard is getting still enough to actually hear them.
What’s hard is trusting that we are this powerful—that we contain the answers we seek, and the love that we need most to experience.
