Merriam-Webster defines the soul as “the immaterial essence, animating principle, or actuating cause of an individual life.” It’s that part of you that drives you for life.
So having a sleeping soul is like sitting in a car with no gas, no steering wheel, and flat tires. You aren’t really going anywhere. Here’s how to determine if you’re in desperate need of a spiritual awakening.
A dormant soul is part of the crowd, while an awakened soul is at the front of the parade. They’re leaders. And according to Power of Positivity, if your soul is awake, “you sometimes feel very alone and isolated in society, but know that most leaders do.” It isn’t easy leading the revolution, but someone has got to do it. “Even if you take the road less traveled,” the site continues, “you feel honored to know what you do and have the fortitude to stick to your guns no matter what.”
5. Closed mind.
An awakened soul has a mind that’s like a sieve, filled with many, many holes allowing new information and ideas to penetrate but not get stuck. The things you need to know will catch, and the things you don’t will push through. A dormant soul will be entirely closed off to everything, no matter what it is. Even if that idea is something you might have actually come to agree with, you’re set in your ways, and have no plans of changing or even hearing something new.
