A Woman with Soul: Treela Smith
Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced. It was the summer of 2012, and I was sungazing, a practice I am very passionate about. For the duration of about 17 minutes, I felt powerful, sensual, and completely myself. I felt vulnerable, yet powerful.
When do you feel your most soulful? Often when I am alone, after 11 pm, I am connected to Source much more intensely, but also when I am silent for hours, listening to inspiring instrumental music, and when I am dancing. As I connect to the messages of the higher beings and share them on Facebook or with friends in conversation, it overjoys me to see the warm and loving responses from those I do not know well, or at all. When dancing (not professional, just for the love of it), I lose myself in the music and connect to the beingness that is my true and highest self, in touch with the all-encompassing joy that I feel when I allow my physical form to dance.
Where have you felt the most in touch with your own soul? It is always among trees with a river nearby. When I was a child and my parents were going through a divorce, the place that I did the most healing was when the therapist would take me to the trees, near a stream. It has always been my preferred place on earth.
What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? Trust, Love, honesty, open communication, listening as much as talking (maybe even more), and the silent relating of soul to soul communication (no speech, just gazing into each other’s eyes).
What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? My soul’s purpose is to aid in the awakening of everyone to their own truth, their own divinity, and their own light. It is also to go through trials in order to be a role model so that others may know it can be done, and to help others when they need support or a shoulder to lean on during tough times. As in The Celestine Prophecy, I am a guide. At times friends and lovers come into and then leave my life, once I have guided them back to their own life purpose.
I am blessed to be able to combine my spiritual gifts with my profession as a massage therapist. There is much healing on not just the physical level, but the emotional and spiritual body too. I am gifted with the ability to ‘know’ where the pain is, as often I feel it in my own body. Currently I am working on transmuting this energy back into the universe, as it has caused me to gain much weight to protect myself from the negativity. I have recently become a Groove Method Fitness Dance Instructor, a wonderful modality of movement, fun and fitness. This type of dance fitness has helped healing of my left shoulder (a repetitive strain injury of my profession). So for that alone, I am impassioned to bring this to the world. Currently I am working on writing two books and a screenplay, as well as developing a multitude of spiritual projects meant to aid more that one person at a time – but still allowing them to connect to the truth that is inside of them and within us all.
