I’ve been listening to ‘The Map of Your Soul’ by Tricia Brennan as an Audio Book. The library service is such a valuable service which I really appreciate. I’ve really enjoyed being able to listen to books while I’m driving on my own (usually on the way to pick up one of the kids).
Anyway back to the book, she talks about so many things that either confirm what I have believed, or given a new perspective on theories about the soul and universal spirit.
She talks about the soul being feminine in nature, and our spirit as being masculine in nature. I have always been drawn to the idea of yin and yang and this idea of the soul and spirit as being two different things is a relatively new idea for me, but it makes sense, and I can relate to it. The first time I came across it was just a couple of weeks ago, when I wanted to bring up my blog on the web, and started typing it into the web address bar, but accidentally typed in ‘heal your soul’ without thinking, and the WikiHow page came up with that title. This article (it doesn’t say who wrote it) also talked about the soul as feminine and the spirit as masculine and them being two different parts. It was s new idea to me then but it made me feel excited at the concept and related to the yin/yang aspect of it. I’ve always just used soul/spirit as interchangeable.
The fact that this idea came to me twice, I think the universe (or angels or spirit guides) wanted me to get the message.
I wasn’t particularly drawn to the book however I had pulled over to the side of the road at the beginning of my drive to quickly pick an audio book to listen to, and so I just randomly picked that one.
