As those who follow my work know, I’m all about bringing the soul back to life. My mission is to get the word and understanding of it back into the mainstream. However, in the process of writing the introduction to my upcoming book, Anxiety: Body, Mind and Soul for my Soul of Psychology series I decided to add a brief history of the word soul.
Start your Evolution Today
In the Soul Health Blog, Dr. Kelly elevates the understanding of the soul by explaining
its influence on various aspects of the human condition. She brings to light hard to
understand dynamics of everyday life and bridges up-to-date scientific research related
to the body and mind aspects of everyday life with the less-known soul-based factors
that impact our individual experience.
The soul needs presence to expand and evolve. It is the experience of “being” within a situation or moment, both observing and consciously participating in the awareness of second-by-second evolution. This is much like listening deeply to the ticking of a clock. We can’t stop time, but we can stop ourselves from overlooking or ignoring what each instance brings. Each one offers an opportunity to capture and integrate awareness and experiences that might otherwise have been lost.
We remember the many times we went against our gut instinct and experienced remorse by not following that quiet voice within.
Researchers, Roese and Summerville say, “Opportunity breeds regret.” How can this be?
Opportunity is the ultimate dream. It offers hope for all possibilities, options and fantasy. But the reality is, it can come with a cost if we don’t take action once opportunity arises. Our soul’s path can become seriously detoured or misaligned if we don’t listen to what our inner truth has to say. Scientists agree.
