Embodying Soul: A Return to Wholeness: A Memoir of New Beginnings by Keri Mangis is a fascinating memoir that speaks about the author's understanding of having a loving relationship with her emotions and herself, thereby creating a strong beginning for a return to wholeness. We are introduced to Sëri in the Soul Realm, Rasa, her soul friend, and Endless Curiosity, her soul animal which is a silver-eyed wolf. Serene Voyager, whose Soul is known as just Sëri in the Soul Realm, is going through her journey before she decides to take another birth and go back to the Earth Realm. The Soul Realm is where every soul returns between human incarnations to experience healing, reflection, and guidance. Sëri is ready to go on the River of Forgetting, which was going to be her divinely selected path to the Earth Realm. In the Earth Realm, after many unsuccessful attempts at giving meaning to her life, Keri decides to make contact with her soul, Sëri. Have you ever thought about contacting your soul? Well, this memoir might help you do it.
The memoir is about self-discovery and shows readers how Keri peels away layers inside her to discover her internal realm which gives her full awareness about her humanness and remembered divinity. It is a realization of how when life is aligned with the soul, this leads to a life of peace and acceptance. The memoir is insightful and gives readers glimpses into the author's dialogues with her soul. The book is profound and will help readers look at life with a different perspective and work towards being in alignment with their life, embodying characteristics like softness, calmness, approachability, courage, humility, patience, and strength. The author weaves together the Earth Realm and Soul Realm and the characters there seamlessly, making the transition from the boundlessness of the Soul Realm to the confinement of the Earth Realm palpable.
