The Soul Elements is an interconnected knowledge framework that gives a big picture perspective, revealing a holistic understanding of life and gifting greater awareness and insights that can be used to optimize many aspects of living. Essentially, The Soul Elements is a blank coloring book with outlines to give you the ability to color in your thoughts, emotions, motivations, intentions, and behaviors to help enable you to persevere and manifest your goals, dreams, and desires more easily.
In addition to my own reflections, I spent time reading to find any holes in my above understanding. In that reading, I did discover a hole, which was the fact that the Element CHOICE was missing, found in the reading of Daniel H. Pink’s Drive.
Also, upon reading, I became aware that The Soul Elements embodies various aspects of what others (specifically, Albert Bandura's Social Learning Theory, Carl Rogers' theories on Positive Regard and Self Worth as well as Congruence, and Kurt Lewin's Field Theory) have already discovered and revealed.
Additionally, a friend of mine, a licensed clinical psychologist, let me know that I was not the first person to come up with the concept of FLOW in the way that I have defined it and that I should read Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikszentamihalyi. What I learned in reading Csikszentamihalyi's Flow is that his concept of Flow is essentially the exact same as my FLOW THROUGH ACTION (better said, my concept is a reflection of his flow concept, since his concept came decades before mine), but my FLOW THROUGH STILLNESS is a completely different concept altogether relative to his concept of FLOW.
Furthermore, the colors and icons associated to each Element have no true association and are merely used to help the reader in creating a clearer separation between the Elements.
Lastly, Found Soul, generally speaking, does not ally specifically with any one faith, sect, or denomination. The Soul Elements is for all.
