About the Author Sonia Choquette, a world-renowned intuitive guide and spiritual teacher, is the author of 19 international best-selling books, including the New York Times bestseller The Answer Is Simple. A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
James Allen. PrEfACE Just as a mirror, which reflects all things, is set in its own container, so too the rational soul is placed in the fragile container of the body. In this way, the body is governed in its earthly life by the soul, and the soul contemplates heavenly things through faith. Hildegard of Binden. To be more accurate, we are souls who interact with the physical world through our physical bodies. We are also souls who interact with the spiritual world through our spirits. Though science has yet to discover a way to determine where our physical bodies end and where our souls begin, we are still more soul than body.
One day our bodies will pass away and return to dust, but our souls will go on into eternity. Our souls operate on a spiritual planewhat quantum physicists have identified as the fourth dimensionthe unseen quantum world that lies beyond time and space and shapes all that we see in the physical world. Our souls bridge the eternal with the temporal, pick up on the frequencies of heaven, and translate spiritual truths into the language that our minds can comprehend.
Your soul is the source of your healing, purpose, and success when it has been seeded by the Spirit of Christ and watered by the Word of God. When your soul comes alive in Christ, a genesis takes place. A new world of possibilities emergesa kind of alternate reality, which the Bible calls the Kingdom of Heaven.

Vitamins for the Soul: Daily Doses of Wisdom for Personal Empowerment
It is what transmits light to your life. This is why Apostle Paul gave the instruction: Awake you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light Eph. Paul doesnt mean that when you jump out of bed Christ will shine down a beam of light on your pajama-clad body; but rather, it is you who must discipline your soul to harness the light that Christ gives.
Paul offers step-by-step instructions about how to do just that:. Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise sensible, intelligent people , making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit. Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord, at all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father Ephesians AMP.

Stewarding Your Soul Living on purpose, making the most of the time, being led by the Spirit, offering praise, and giving thanks are some of the ways to enlightenas well as lightenyour soul. Your soul, You are in the conductors seat. You can choose to position your soul by aligning it with behavioral best practices as outlined by Paul, or to remain spiritually asleepsleepwalking through life among the clutter of the living dead.
There will always be negative forces pulling you away from the light, attempting to suppress or diminish the light you carry, for as Paul wrote, the days are evil. But you have the power within you to overcome any darkness with the light emanating from your soul. Celtic priest and philosopher John ODonohue wrote, Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form. You can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul. You may feel like only a small flicker in a dark world, but you are not alone.
Imagine a football stadium filled with people holding up their lightersall those tiny flickers, lighting up the whole field! You may feel like a lonely lighthouse on an island amidst a dark, raging sea, but you are among many positioned to light up the shoreline. Your soul gives you more than the light of self-knowledgeit gives you the ability to be known by others as well. You are able to influence and to be influenced, because to influence a person is to give him ones own soul, wrote Oscar Wilde. But Wilde also warns of the danger.
Although we long to come together and connect on a deep levelto know and be knownwe must be careful to maintain the integrity of our own souls. Wilde goes on to write that when an exchange takes place at the level of the soul, [One] does not think his natural thoughts, or burn with his natural passions. His virtues are not real to him.
His sinsare borrowed. He becomes an echo of someone elses music, an actor of a part that has not been written for him. We will discuss this concept of exchange in great detail throughout this book, as these are the soul-level connections Wilde concludes by making the following observation: The aim of life is self-development. To realize ones nature perfectlythat is what each of us is here for.
About This Item
People are afraid of themselves, nowadays. They have forgotten the highest of all duties, the duty that one owes to oneself. Of course they are charitable. They feed the hungry, and clothe the beggar. But their own souls starve, and are naked.
Courage has gone out of our race. The Picture of Dorian Gray This reminds me of a verse from Ecclesiastes which states, We work to feed our appetites; meanwhile our souls go hungry Eccles. How do we keep our own souls from starving? How do we not neglect the highest of all dutiesto properly care for, nourish, and protect our own souls?
Could this be at the root of humanitys woes? Could the hunger, conflict, and darkness we see in the world be a reflection of the condition of our inner lives? Have we failed to take possession of the kingdoms of this world for our Lord Jesus Christ because we have failed to take full possession of our own souls? This is what we will explore in the fourth and final book of this series. But for now, we will look at how you can begin to possess your soul by learning to practice the disciplines and behaviors that will establish the environment your soul needs to thrive.
What is True Freedom? To review, your soul is the seat of your reflective consciousness housing your mind, will, and emotions, also your intellect, decision-making ability, and your heart.
Proverbs exhorts you to, Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. The word issue in this verse is used to denote a From it come waters that, though they start small, have the capacity to grow to sustain and nurture life in plateaus and valleys for miles on end. Our souls are the the source of true life Prov. The soul is the seat of ideas and inventions, any one of which can light the world, transform a generation, or free a continent. While it is the center of our being, it is also what keeps us centered, balanced between physical and spiritual needs and desiresbetween cold intellectual calculations, strength of will, and compassionate justice.
It is the cradle of prosperity and health, the womb of inspiration and aspiration, and the lathe of policy and programs. It is the conduit through which all good things come into the world. But if our souls are not free to be their best, none of this comes about. Some exercise their physical freedom only to find they do things that enslave their souls to substances, behaviors, or relationships that eat away at their very core and are incredibly difficult to escape.
They exercise a freedom that inhibits their own successdeveloping habits that hold them back and keep them from their own promotion, prosperity, and fulfillment in life because they quench the true life that pours out from their hearts. They think discipline is the opposite of freedomthat ethics and morals are meant to inhibit their pleasure and enjoyment rather than enhance them.
They resist letting others tell them what to do only to be placed in bondage to laziness, sensuality, or addiction. They seek comfort at the expense of their own achievement and growth.
They seek reward in trying to obtain a certain lifestyle while diminishing every life they touch. They end up in a prison that is of their own making, whether it is figurative or literal. They live a life that sounds like an old country song: You load sixteen tons, what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt Saint Peter dont you call me cause I cant go I owe my soul to the company store.
