(A great way to truly get deep with someone special)
Discovering True Selves*
When we want to see deeply into the heart and mind of another person, soul
seeing, also called soul gazing, allows us to see their soul. The soul is
the purest expression of an individual and is not bound by physical forms or
fleeting emotions. Through a simple art that involves looking deeply into a
partner's eyes, soul seeing can show you a person's inner beauty that you
might otherwise miss. It is possible for someone who appears cold to have a
warm, giving, nurturing soul or someone of average appearance to have a
beautiful soul. Soul seeing is a way of looking past shapes, sizes,
attitudes, and behavior to see the real individual that lies beneath the
surface. It allows you to see the true essence of another person, the
radiance of their being, and their spirit within.
Soul seeing is accomplished by sitting face to face with another person. It
is helpful to first state your intention before you begin. As you stare
softly into each other's eyes without stopping to look away, each of your
souls is revealed to the other. Try not to look for anything in particular
or seek traits you're hoping to find. Simply let the other person's soul
reveal itself to you. After twenty minutes have passed, stay where you are
and share a period of silent reflection with your partner for two minutes.
You may have suddenly seen your partner's inner nature as clearly as a
bright day, or you may need to meditate on your experience before you feel
comfortable with your impressions. Either way, soul seeing can be a
wonderfully intimate and shared experience.
So little of who each of us is can be captured by our appearance or
personality. The thoughts, fears, desires, and longings that are part of
what makes us whole are not always written across our faces. Often, the most
surprising thing you may learn while soul seeing is that while you and the
other person may appear on the surface to be quite different, you actually
share many of the same inner qualities. And then there is the unique beauty
that resides within that is longing to be revealed to another who is willing
to see. Soul seeing can help you experience the people in your life as they
truly are, beyond any mental barriers or physical limitations.
