Day 1 of Soul Coaching

It is finally November! I have been waiting weeks to begin Soul Coaching. I’m glad I have the chance to do this with other people; I think it will help me be more honest on my journey. I can lie to myself, but it’s hard for me to lie to others. In preparation I bought a journal. On the first page I wrote a sacred contract to myself.

I, Victoria Slicer, declare to myself that I will dedicate the month of November
2008 to connecting with my soul. I will be honest with myself and others to
uncover the truth about who I am. I will try my best to be gentle with myself
and listen to my soul. I will trust that change will happen.

I also made a personal alter. I will probably add to it over time, but here's what it looks like now.

This is just the beginning of the month. I look forward to learning more about myself, learning more about the blog friends I already have, and meeting new people! It's going to be a journey I won't forget, I'm sure of it.


  1. Perfect Tori! Interesting how everyone is taking a gentle approach, I had not thought of that. I am glad that you are ready to be honest with others and yourself about how you're doing and what's really going on. There can be no real change without authenticity. Great altar Tori! Can't wait to read more about your journey.

  2. I'm so excited to start on this journey too, Tori! The anticipation has been building throughout October and we're finally here, journeying together!

    What a beautiful altar you've created! It looks like just the right space!

    May the magic begin!

  3. Dearest Tori,
    I am many moons older than you, yet still seeking authenticity after hiding from myself for a time. You are wise to go on this journey at your age.

  4. I'm feeling like going to a spiritual camp with friends, Tori. This month will be intense! I loved your altar, and your name in front of it brings a cool focus to the process.


  5. Hi Tori,

    Your altar is beautiful and, like you, I also plan to add to mine as needed throughout the month.

    This book club was a bit of a whirlwind for me as I came across the site by chance only two days before November 1st...rushed out and bought the book and I made it!

    I'm so happy to sharing this experience with you and the others in the book club circle.

    Love, light and peace,

  6. Hello Tori!
    Thanks for sharing pictures of your altar in progress, I too am working on mine and will post pictures once it's up and running...

    Glad we are on this journey together!! It's going to be a great month...

  7. great contract and great altar - pleasure to meet you

  8. nice to "meet" you, tori! i'm looking forward to this process, too!

  9. it is lovely to see your altar.. and I cannot wait to see it and you evolve as we journey together during November..
    blessings to you for this month xo

  10. Tori,

    I love that you are trusting that change will happen. I think I will add that affirmation to my contract, as well.

  11. All the best with your journey, take it a day at a time and be patient!!!

  12. A beautiful start to what is going to be an amazing month! Wishing you all the magical blessings along the way. Nicole x
