You Vs. Yourself – Getting To Know The Personality Of Our Souls

Each of our two souls has an inner experience and an outer, expressive garment. There are ten essential powers or traits of the soul, categorized as intelligence or emotions, which define a personality.

You Vs. Yourself – “Souls” some higher some lower

As souls descend through the divine realms into our physical world, some retain their supreme spirituality, others acquire layers of physicality that conceal the soul’s true desires. Most of us, born with these ‘covered’ souls, harbor a strong ego, which drives and influences our actions. The Tzaddikim, our leaders, are born with pure souls and live in constant awareness of G-d. They are channels of the divine, and when the Jewish people connect with their Tzaddikim, they are connected and elevated to much higher levels.
