In Meet your soul, therapist and intuitive Elisa Romeo, takes Soul beyond an intellectual concept and into a direct and personal relationship. Pulling from depth psychology, years of practical experience, and touching stories from clients, Elisa brings substance and gravitas—and some levity—to the topic of how to live a Soulful life.
Your soul is part of yourself
Most people don’t spend much time thinking about the Soul. To many, it’s purely a concept—the perfect topic for a heady metaphysical debate, in which we philosophize whether we do or do not “have one.”
For others, Soul is a quality. A stanza of poetry, a meaningful moment, or an expressive piece of music may activate feelings of depth and reverence, and an element of the sacred; this may then be described as particularly “soulful.”
Yet your Soul is not a concept or a fleeting emotion. Your Soul is a part of yourself. She is your unique representative in the universe, which longs to be in relationship to you.
The challenge to knowing the Soul is that it is not met through interpretation, analysis, and understanding from the head. The Soul is only discovered through direct experience, feeling, and embodiment. In other words, we need to meet the Soul to know the Soul.
But why does it matter if we know our Souls?
In short, it is because your Soul is the oldest, wisest, and always-loving part of yourself, and She has access to incredible knowledge. Your Soul knows why you came to the planet, what lessons you most need to learn, and how to perfectly navigate and heal the challenges in your life. Your Soul knows exactly how to saturate your days with immense meaning, how to help you live your life’s purpose, and how to achieve true success and happiness.
Your Soul sees your best, most vital self. She holds that vision when you do not. She knows what your essence wants to express here on planet Earth, and She knows it is worthy. Your Soul wants to guide you back to you—to your true identity—full in Her knowledge of who you are and why you are here. She wants you to know you were created perfectly for the mission of your life and that the most sacred gift you can give Her is to be fully you. (And the biggest gift you can give yourself is to be fully Her.)
She is the root of your consciousness. Your Soul nudges you toward your fullness, releases you from limiting beliefs, and challenges you where you withhold Love. She is the in-between of your ego self and Universal Source energy, also called the Divine or God. She is your highest God/Goddess self—you in your most authentic and genuine form. She is the incarnate of the immeasurable in your chest. She is the feeling of the incomprehensible bigness that you are. She guides you on the journey to your most authentic self—your Soul Journey.
Your Soul is Love
Yet Love from the Soul is not always gentle; at times it can leave you incredibly humbled. The Soul is fiercely “real,” direct, and incredibly honest about issues you would rather look away from. The Soul is the constant daily workhorse that gives you the practical information to guide you on your life mission toward fulfillment.
When you have a direct relationship with your Soul, the benefits are life changing. I see my clients heal physical illnesses, gain confidence, create Soulful relationships, and begin to live their lives on purpose.
When you live on purpose, you live a Soul-oriented life. You live your authentic Truth and grow toward your biggest potential. You are fully alive and filled with joy and meaning. When you are disconnected from your Soul, you are lost at sea, susceptible to the opinions and agendas of those around you. Life becomes a task to achieve, tolerate, and survive, instead of an opportunity to express your deepest heart and wildest joy.
