What is the color of your soul?
In the dark of the night
In the silent blackness
What stories do you tell
About your life and why
Where did you leap
Off that cliff
Towards the numinous Unknown?
And whose knees did you kiss
When they were bloodied
How many wilting flowers
Did you caress against your skin
And thank for their
How often did you fall off your chair
Until tears and sweat were
One singing cacophony?
How much did you love and live
The serpentine magic
Of it all?
What is the color of your soul?
Dear Ones ~ My name is Devaa Haley Mitchell, and it’s my delight and honor to connect with you here, SOUL TO SOUL. And yes, I do want to know… what IS the color of your soul?
My own soul is currently expressing itself as a soul midwife and a transformational leader, supporting those who long to reconnect with their spiritual depths, unleash their leadership gifts, and step into their full potential. and I am a spiritual guide focused on the sacred feminine. If you were drawn to check out this web page, you may relate to my story.
I am someone who is a steward of the deep sacred feminine, bringing full embodiment of Her energy back onto the planet – in harmony with the divine masculine. I aim to live as Her heart and Her hands on this planet, walking the path of the Beauty Way. I try to see the world through Her eyes, knowing we are all unconditionally loved in Her bounty and grace.
I have come to this place after a looooong path of searching, traveling, studying, practicing… to arrive at this blessed now moment. And what a gift it is!
I am someone who was well-educated and longed to lead a “successful” life. I studied at Stanford University and got both my Bachelors and Masters degrees there. I was awarded a prestigious Fulbright scholarship for my work in the Brazilian Amazon and I was selected for a very elite corporate consulting job in my early career. So I was very “successful,” in the ways it’s normally described.
And yet… I was not I wasn’t happy. And I didn’t feel like I was making much of a positive contribution to my community or the world. Instead I sometimes felt a bit like an empty husk blowing in the wind. I didn’t understand what had happened to me. I had so closely followed the path that was mapped out so clearly by my family, by my academics… so what went wrong?
Perhaps you can relate.
Through my current work with many thousands of women (and some men too), I’ve learned that what women long for is often NOT “success.” Instead we are seeking a deep sense of FULFILLMENT. And the path to feminine fulfillment is quite different than the masculine pathway to success.
For most of us, the path towards fulfilment requires you to get deeply present to who you are and what brings you JOY. It’s about clarifying the unique gifts and talents that are living inside you, and expressing them powerfully and beautifully on the planet. It’s about doing the soul work needed to lay down the barriers that surround your own heart, so you can fully give and receive the sort of love you desire.
It’s about finding the unique color of our own SOUL, your radiant essence, and then shining it brightly on the planet.
So, here’s the real question…
Through my own experience, I have been able to better embody and sustain my divine blueprint. I’ve also been able to expand into the next level of my being in greater than imagined ways. I am deeply grateful for the experience and am now honored to share my findings with others.
