Realizing The Soul Is Who We Are

Around the world – Vancouver, Victoria , Kamloops, Banff, Jasper, Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Regina, SaskatoonWinnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, St Johns, or abroad in London, GreeceBali, Thailand, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand, Hawaiithe soul does not exist physically, it is not visible, you cannot touch it or feel it in a traditional sense. The soul is part of who you are, within your core, the essence of you. 

It lives, as it is in our body and because our body is alive.  The soul is, is that it is a source of energy within you, connected to mind and body. The soul is part of how you think and feel. 


Some people consider themselves an old soul, which means they have had several past lives. When I was about 9 years old, I remember thinking I felt that I had an old soul; I can’t really explain it, but the feeling was, and is to this day just there inside me. 

At times in my life I’ve felt that being deaf has given me access to a deeper mode of communicating through American Sign Language


Not everyone knows that American Sign Language is a language completely separate and distinct from English. And through its visual foundation it can offer the signer a uniquely expressive form of communication. In conversations about the soul I prefer to use American Sign Language. As I think I express myself better, as it is hard to capture the soul through mere words.

The soul does not exist in scientific vocabulary. As it is likely too abstract a thought, a theory, a notion, to be easily digested by the minds .  You cannot prove the soul exists because it is unprovable.

Western World

Outside of our western world, where many other religions and philosophies exist, including Buddhism, the soul is represented. 

Some believe it is the part of you that exists before you were born, and exists after your physical body dies, and lives on anew in another lifetime. Some say it is the finger print of god, the essence of god that becomes your physical body, that the divinity of god is in you and all things. 

As I learned doing a yoga teacher training, the soul is “unexplainable,” that is is something you feel but cannot put language to it, like when you “feel love” but you cannot “capture the whole concept” even though “you feel it inside.” I feel like I have connected with my soul, or “realized” it a bit doing yoga. 

In The End

As yoga practice allows an opportunity to be silent, the process of connecting with your body gives you the freedom to be mentally free. 

The modern trappings of society seem to get us further from a place where we recognize our souls. As we are distracted and often in a state of stimulus. When we practice yoga, we allow ourselves to quiet our minds and in this quiet we can connect in with our essence, our soul, on a deeper level.
