What are the benefits of soul-gardening? There are MANY! To name a few: 
a. No more fake “news!” Through soul-listening, we receive vital, honest information that is pertinent to us in a language we understand. We grow to perceive truth everywhere.
b. Danger is minimized and safety is maximized! Learning to hear this masterful soul in ourselves and others is a great way
of protecting ourselves and our loved ones. 
c. We have a guide to fulfilling our dreams. Our worldly “experts” and “leaders” can fall short! Our whole soul, who is ever in contact with our Source, cannot. 

Why can’t I just make my life better on my own? You can if you’re listening to your soul. Most of us have blocks to our souls that we are unaware of. Our attachment to image is one of these blocks. If you want to get beyond such blocks, please consider working with me.

 

Educational Information

How do I know the difference between someone’s image and their true whole identity? When we act from a fixed character or image, our actions are rigid and predictable. If I say A, she says B. When I do C, he does D. We appear to be operating from a computer software program rather than responding deliberately and creatively to our own and others’ moment-by-moment inspiration and soul needs.

What are our soul needs? Our primary need is to release our attachments to our known images or characters. We also need to venture beyond the storylines we’ve created to give these characters validity and minimize their stress.

Can you give me an example of a typical character and storyline? Most of us believe we are “good guys” that came from relatively functional families. We remember and focus on what supports these beliefs. Of course, each developmental stage defines these terms differently, which results in a wide range of characters and storylines. For example, sometimes we get our needs met by becoming the “bad guy,” or maybe one of our parents took on this role. Whether favorable or unfavorable, our selective memories retain what validates these restricted images. Forgotten information is stored in our unconscious minds.

What’s wrong with defending our egos and hiding the truth in the unconscious mind? Don’t we all do that? Yes, most of us do to various degrees. The younger we are in our psychological or soul development, the more we “protect” ego or image, causing trouble for many. The older we are, the more we protect, support, and nurture the true Identity of each person, the whole soul.

Why are we hesitant to hear our souls? We are afraid. We believe that what we know of ourselves, our lives, and our world is the whole story. At best, we know just part of reality. At worst, we live in a fantasy world. Through soul-listening, we learn we have some unconscious soul parts that act out from time to time, seeking our attention. I’ve seen amazing transformations of longstanding problems when people find the courage to listen to their souls!

What motivates people to start listening to their souls? Sadly, our lives usually reach a level of pain that resonates with the pain we ‘ve stored in our unconscious minds. At that point, we become motivated to try something new.

 

The Method of Soul-Gardening

How do your soul-gardening methods differ from mainstream methods of help and healing? Many people rely heavily on physical treatments to minimize or eliminate symptoms. This stabilization has its time and place. For lasting healing, however, we need to discover what caused the symptoms in the first place, not just physically, but emotionally and mentally, something mainstream methods do not do.

What exactly do you do in a soul-listening session? You tell me what is bothering you, and I tell you what I hear your soul saying. When you feel ready, I then guide you into connecting with your soul, so that you get into the habit of hearing and responding as your soul directs. As an expert in human development, I also assess your stage of psychological development and help you to progress to the next stage.

How long does this developmental process take? I often can’t tell upfront. Everyone is different, depending on what individuals want, what their souls need, and how much effort they are willing to put in. Some people want something simple and make quick gains. Others want and need something more extensive and prefer to go slowly. There are many possibilities.

 

Outcomes

What happens when we don’t listen and respond to our souls? The parts of us we’ve castaway strive to get our attention in so many ways, such as causing us increasing pain and suffering. Our culture teaches us to dismiss these cries for help, to diagnose and “treat” them, or to otherwise ignore or manhandle them. Grievously, we want our handicaps and hurts to go away rather than allow them to move us into the awareness that something in us is handicapped and hurting. When we are closed to these soul cries, they must then cry louder to be heard.

Are there any more serious consequences of having unknown soul parts? Out of the many, here are a few examples:
a. We are easy to fool and control.
b. Being aware of just a part of ourselves means we’re apt to perceive just a part of every whole—whether a person or situation.
c. Our unwillingness to embrace certain aspects of ourselves means we’re blind to what’s happening with these castaway soul parts—what they are doing and what’s being done to them.
d. When we are not listening to our souls’ plans for the psychological development of the whole of us, we are asking others to act out our internal dynamics that we may become more aware of our issues.
What can we expect when we listen to our souls and effectively respond? We acquire abilities we didn’t know we had! For example, we gain the ability to help all personality types. We grow to listen and respond to the souls of others just as much as our own. More and more, we hear the brilliant guidance that is always there for each of us. Each moment becomes vibrantly alive and richly fulfilling!

How might our world benefit from Soul-listening? Listening to our souls and following their directions is like voting in honorable leaders. As more people make this healthy choice, we will increasingly find true and worthy authorities in our businesses, institutions, and governments.

What is a soul gardener?

For much of my life, I’ve enjoyed growing fresh vegetables and herbs as well as plants that feed butterflies, hummingbirds, and nature in general. I find many similarities between gardening plots of land and tending the various aspects of our psychology that together comprise the soul. I call myself a soul gardener because I help you to get the soil of your psyche in good condition and to care for your plants that are in need. As the garden of your life becomes increasingly bountiful and beautiful, others will naturally follow your inspiration.
