A Conduit's Power: The Magnetism of Soul


A conduit is a channel through which something is conveyed. In engineering, conduits are pipes that channel resources such as water or gas. In the realm of Soul Gifts, Conduits channel human desires. 

When desire reaches the depths of Soul-longing, a Conduit senses it and evokes it to the surface of our lives. Conduits see the true desires of others and help find ways to fulfill those desires.

The attractive nature of a Conduit can be confusing for others—and for the Conduits themselves. Because Conduit energy is so closely tied to longing and fulfillment, others may have confused your Conduit energy with sexual or romantic advances, creating circumstances of mistaken or unrequited love.

As a Conduit, you may fear that you are causing irrevocable harm by fulfilling your purpose. This is a common concern. Because you bring out what people really want, you also tend to bring out emotions about what they want. Some of these emotions are bound to be painful: shame, despair, hatred, or disgust. When that happens, people may blame you for their feelings. On the other hand, people may experience lighter, easier emotions, such as joy, exaltation, or relief. In this case, they may believe that you are the source of these feel-good emotions.

Think of it like a musical masterpiece or a particularly striking painting. When you listen to the notes of the melody or take in the colors on the canvas, you feel an urge, an emotional response, as conveyed by the art. A beach landscape may reflect your desire for a more wistful, carefree time; the painting of an empty crib may reflect desire for a child; or a hopeful song may reflect desire for redemption. 

Like a mirror, Conduits reflect people’s desires and emotions back to them. Conduits don’t force other people to feel things they wouldn’t otherwise feel; they simply draw out the desires (and subsequent emotions) already waiting deep inside. As a Conduit, you reflect deeply held, secret longings of the heart and this is an extremely powerful gift.

You have the power to help others clarify + fulfill the longings of their soul.
