The murmurings of our soul


I’ve gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discover that my capacities are real. It’s like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.

Joan Mills

I’ve been reminded today about the importance of celebrating the journey, of pausing to consider the strengths that continue to emerge as we follow the murmurings of our soul. The soul speaks, quietly urging us forward, whispering truths of authenticity, cultivating our awareness of environments activities and people that fail to nurture our growth

As I work to re-member my higher self, and go about life in my clunky, inelegant way, I am stirred by strengths … both of others who walk the path with me, and by my own emerging connection to my soul. I will celebrate this stirring and continue to clumsily juggle courage with mediocrity and occasional insights of brilliance as I interpret and claim the murmurings of my soul

If you don’t feel it, flee from it. Go where you are celebrated, not merely tolerated

Paul F Davis

About Jennifer K Miles

I am an educator, researcher and writer, passionate about storytelling and its power to change perspectives of self. Through undertaking the journey of my own transformative learning, I now work with adults to support them in drawing forth stories of the strength and potential gained in their lives, as they move towards the creation of their stories as yet untold. My three beautiful adult boys are the most precious part of my story, and continue to walk with and support me in undertaking my PhD research. I write about story and transformative learning ... the circumstances of our lives and the stories remembered; influences on the construction of our self-identities - positive and negative; critiquing the assumptions and limitations we have come to accept about ourselves, our potential, and our place in life; daring to imagine a story untold.
