A Woman with Soul: Andrea Wheeler
Where have you felt the most in touch with your own soul? I find that when I’m feeling confused and overwhelmed, I run away to the beach to be alone. I can “hear” better there. My goal is to always get there as the sun is rising and stay until it sets. The sounds of the waves crashing on the shore seem to wash away any anxiety that I’m experiencing. I love it all. The cry of the seagulls, the sand crabs tickling my toes and sometimes I’m lucky enough to catch a seal or dolphin pop out of the water. I like to believe they’re saying hello to me.
Describe one of the most soulful people you’ve ever known. She’s warm, complex, and private. She has a very deep well of caring and is genuinely interested in understanding people. She primarily deals with things according to how she “feels” about them which may or may not be in her best interests. She’s very sensitive to conflict and tries to avoid it all costs. She’s compassionate, kind, and somewhat of a crybaby. Yes, this soulful person I speak of is me.
What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? I believe all forms of intimacy are most important along with acceptance, recognition, and deep respect. Simply being “present”, sharing common interests, yet giving each other space to grow. I think of a “soulful relationship” and relate it to the way I feel about myself and how I hope to continue experiencing it with my children.
What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? *singing* “…the greatest thiiiinnng, you’ll ever leeearn, is just to love and be looooved in return…” To me? It’s that simple.
