Over the past few months I’ve referenced something I call “the deep-down hum” quite a bit. I’ve explained in passing what it is I’m talking about here, so I thought the time was right to actually dig a bit deeper and clarify what this all means.
There are times in one’s life when doubt is completely absent. When fear is not even a cloud of a thought, let alone at the forefront of one’s mind. When the inner-river of the soul is moving fluidly, smoothly, naturally. It’s not a sense of contentment. It’s a sense of living. These are times when you’re so incredibly sure about something that you can’t understand or explain such a level of certainty.
What’s actually happening here is you are responding to the call of your soul. That inner guide that many refer to as gut-instinct, revealing in its own way your true purpose in this life.

I call this “the deep-down hum” because for me, I’ve always experienced this call as quite literally a faint but deep-thrumming song far down within myself. When I pay attention to that call, I hear it as a low humming that begins to elevate from octave to octave as I respond to it. Conversely, as I avoid this call, it begins to quiet again and drifts to a whisper.
But it never leaves; it’s always there.
