There is only one "foreign" language I'm somewhat fluent in: the language of the Soul.
If you've ever studied a foreign language, you've probably had the experience of being a bit disoriented.  Learning to speak, read or write a new language ignites new development in your brain. And that brain development, I think of it as rewiring, goes on while you're discovering how to speak, interpret, conjugate verbs, and all the rest.
The is true even when you're leaning the Language of Your Soul.  

Learning a New Language

What does it mean to listen to, understand, translate the unique expressions of the Soul?  I wanted to know!  At first to know my Self.  To answer what felt like a deep longing, a desire to find inner-peace, self-trust and authentic self expression.  My study began early, and took many a winding turn, and I am sure will continue for the rest of my days.  There are nuances, ever-unfolding and revealing themselves, when it the Language of the Soul.
I have a wealth of Knowing to share with you, as I have not only studied, I have also applied the lessons and insights I have discovered from learning the Language of my own Soul.  Soul is not something you can truly discover through a book.  It doesn't exist "out there" in someone else's information or how-to's.  Your Soul is unique to you, and only you.  There are similarities in how it expresses from one person to the next, but the uniqueness of its meaning is as rare as your fingertips.
After more than 30 years of my own discoveries, and nearly 20 years of guiding thousands of women and men to do the same for themselves, something I eventually discovered is this:  

It doesn't take years and years to begin to reap from your Soul's wealth and wisdom.  Your Soul Is Here for You NOW, perhaps waiting for you to listen, understand and translate the riches that are available to you.

Beginning with the simplest, most direct expressions of Soul -- that you can start learning today.  It's truly liberating to discover this foreign-familiar-forgotten language!  And ~ Once you begin to listen to your own Soul, and translate it, you will forever have guidance, inner-wisdom to guide you in every area of your life.

Where to begin?  

First let's look at some the ways the soul speaks.  Notice which seem familiar to you, how you've been moved or inspired by these:

*Dreams, especially the dreams you have while sleeping

*Fantasies and imagination

*Storytelling, the kind that transcends in the telling like myths and fairytales

*Softened senses


*Symbols and images


*Dance, music, art, poetry

*Prayer and meditation

There is no "one way" to learn this language, to listen to your soul.  Begin by looking at this introductory list, and noticing which you feel drawn to. Does anything here seem natural to you?  Choose one.  Then set some time aside each day with it.  It doesn't have to take a great deal of time, a few minutes to...

*Write down notes from a dream. 

*Journal about a fantasy. 

*Watch a film that tells an epic tale.  

*Buy an art pad and colored pencils -- and draw something that you saw that day, something that moved you or delighted, or intrigued you.

*Dance like no one's watching, in whatever way your body wants to move.

Begin where you are, your Soul will meet you there.
