Welcome to Soul-Guide.com

with Jonathan Hooton

The soul is the essence of any one or any thing. The “spiritual soul” is that aspect of soul through which we experience the divine, the mystery of life, a greater whole. It is the bridge between our personality, in its physical manifestation, and the divine. The process of becoming more soul conscious is one of relating and identifying with the three essential qualities of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. These are expressed as Empowerment, Love and Light. These qualities transcend the dualities we live in where we usually identify with one or other pole: Empowerment transcends the duality of power-over/power-under (or victim/perpetrator); Love, as expressed in compassion, courage and unconditional love, transcends love/fear and love/hate; and Light, through inclusive thinking, transcends us/them thinking, such as racial or gender prejudice.

When we are connected with and moved by these aspects of soul, life has purpose. Living that purpose brings meaning to what we do and connects us to a larger whole. Being directed by our soul purpose is often revealed as a passion, is inherently joyful, and is of service to others. Soul always encourages us to manifest in new and creative ways; no sooner do we settle into a way of being then we are ‘asked’ to open to new ways and to new perceptions. Soul seeks relationships that are equal, collaborative and synergistic – soul partnerships. We are authentic, authors of our own lives, when moving with Soul.

Many people in our present Western culture are disconnected from this felt sense of being – so disconnected that many are also not aware of this inner energy and sense of direction that has been variously named as the “still voice within,” “inner teacher,” “inner guide,” “true self,” “inner light,” and “spark of the divine,” to name a few from some spiritual traditions.

While this website is here to act as a guide and to assist you in connecting with soul, it is the soul that is your guide to your living a life of purpose and meaning. By stopping and being present, paying tender attention to our inner depths, we contact that soul guidance.

IN-PERSON ONE DAY FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS WORKSHOP in EDMONTON, ALBERTA

NEW

by Deborah Gavrin Frangquist and Jonathan Hooton

Deborah and I, who are board members of NASC (North American Systemic Constellations), explore the ways that dynamics of inclusion and exclusion operate in Canada and the USA from a systemic perspective. This article was included in the spring 2023 NASC newsletter.

RECORDING OF A TWO-HOUR PRESENTATION ON SHAME

On Wednesday 5th October 2022, I presented information together with examples, demonstrations, and a participatory constellation, to illustrate the individual and systemic influences of healthy and toxic shame.

Deborah and I, who are board members of NASC (North American Systemic Constellations), explore the ways that colonialism in Canada and the USA have violated Hellinger’s Orders of Love with respect to both Indigenous peoples and African Americans. This article was included in the August 2020 NASC newsletter.

This article discusses the healthy and toxic aspects of shame, its effect on relationships, behaviours, and methods of healing. It has been published in the June 2019 edition, issue #34, of The Knowing Field, the English language journal of the systemic constellations field.

This article explores how the language of domination subverts the message of equality and healing domination.

Looking at how our thinking reflects hierarchical structures.
