A Woman with Soul: Christine Pratt
Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced.
The deepest soul connection I’ve experienced is one my mother (who’s departed from us now) and I experienced during the birth of my daughter, Tiger Lily. I was in the hospital, and had begun labor, but didn’t have time to contact my mom and family because contractions started all too suddenly. My mom—who by the way was blind—had to come to the hospital to have tests done, but she wasn’t aware that I was there.
While on the delivery room bed, in mid-birth, it was as if I experienced an out-of-body encounter—as if someone or something was controlling my every move, and seeing or watching everything occurring to me, and for me, in the delivery room, EXCEPT ME! To be honest, I can’t even recall the entire delivery process, only when it was over and done with.
About an hour later, a nurse is pushing my mom into my room to visit me! The nurse said, “I don’t know how your mom KNEW you were here, but she said, Take me to see my daughter, she’s in here having her baby.”
I told my mom what I experienced, and she just smiled and said, ”I know! I have a special connection with all of you kids, something you wouldn’t understand until you are grown.” She told me she “saw” my daughter, too—through my eyes! And she is beautiful!
Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life.
The most soul-opening moment in my life was when I found myself through an awakening moment. I have been through many dead-end relationships, and unfaithful marriages, and I still thought, or rather hoped, that I could find love and happiness through another person. I prayed to God and the Universe to open my eyes and send me the love of my life, someone who would love me, teach me to love, lead and guide me through life, and that I could reflect the same kind of love back to.
Well, God got my attention, and He spoke in my spirit that “He” is the love that I have been running from all of my life, and that He is all the love I need! I wept bitterly as I fell down to my knees like a baby… Not long after that, I came across this page on the Internet. It ran through my newsfeeds, and I immediately fell In love with it! It has taught me so much about love, and life, how to love myself, and how to love others, too…
I couldn’t be more content, because I have time and space to work on ME, to LOVE ME, so I will be prepared to love someone else when the time comes! I’m a better person, and a wiser person, because I love myself and accept myself EXACTLY as I Am, I am more trusting of the decisions I make, Because now I KNOW that I deserve to be loved: by myself, my family, and my significant other whenever he vibrationally appears in my life!
When do you feel your most soulful?
I feel my most soulful between the hours of 2 am and 4 am each morning! I can feel my soul speaking to me in the “still” of the night. I will normally get up, and blog what God puts in my heart to write about, or just meditate and talk to God in prayer, praying for peace, and unity, among other things…. It’s amazing, how in the past, when I couldn’t sleep, it troubled me, and I would seek all kinds of pills and remedies to help me fall asleep, or, if there was a man by my side, I slept like a baby, because I saw him as the “protector” of the home… But now, I either sleep peacefully and undisturbed throughout the night, or if I’m up meditating, I would do so all the way up til it’s time for my daughter to go off to school, and me to work, and I would still be energized throughout my day! Wow! When God transformed me, He did a complete transformation—from inside out!
Where do you feel the most in touch with your own soul?
The place I feel the most in touch with my own soul is my bedroom! I hear the birds outside singing each morning, I see wildlife interacting—like squirrels playing, birds singing, sometimes there’s deer in the winter in the back yard. And I see the setting of the sun from my balcony! I love to sit on the balcony (before the world come alive with cars, and horns, and train engines) and just enjoy the sound and the innocence of nature at its best. Such peace and beauty!
Who is one of the most soulful people you know?
My daughter, Tiger Lily! She writes poetry (like myself) and she’s an angel to me! She has been through so much with me throughout my bad relationships, including the man who gave her his last name at birth, and later destroyed her image of him as a father by telling her that she was not his child…all done out of anger at ME! She got past the hurt in time, now she is looking forward to following her dreams going in the National Guard and attending college this summer after graduating. I am so proud of her! It is bittersweet, because I will experience the “empty nest” syndrome once she leaves. Time really flew fast with her. I’m missing her already!
What do you feel your soul’s purpose is?
I feel that my soul’s purpose is to experience growth, and make me a better person. That I am to create a peaceful and happy life for myself, one in which takes me higher in my life, and that I should use my gift to enhance and contribute to the lives of others the same way!
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
