What is SolePath?

Everyone is born with a SolePath. It is your unique, individual, energetic personality profile. ‘Sole’ because it is solely about you. ‘Path’ because it guides you on your life’s journey. SolePaths are determined through SolePath Institute energetic measurements. (Video: What is SolePath?)

“SolePath helps you understand your child at an entirely different level. SolePath helps you be a happier parent, with a happier child, living happier lives. Understanding the SolePath of your child will help you provide them with what they need.”            

Dr. Debra

For you, as a parent, your SolePath is a deep journey of awareness, and you’ll come to know yourself and your child at entirely different levels. Knowing what makes you happy and knowing what trips you up will help explain why you behave the way you do. 

Do you need help understanding why you continue to fall back on habits and behaviours that do not help you and get in the way of your happiness? When you know your SolePath, you can be the parent you always dreamed you’d be, and you can be the parent your child needs you to be. 

Each SolePath is a braid of two LightPaths and one DarkPath.

Your LightPaths are expanding energy. LightPaths guide you to success and happiness and successful parenting. When you live your life from your LightPath expansion, you and your child find joy, health, love, happiness, and meaning. 

There are three words to remember when thinking about your LightPaths: 

  1. Gifts – what you give to others. Your SolePath uncovers your own personal and unique gifts. The gift of you to the world, the gift of you as a parent. 
  2. Greatness – your own personal self-worth. How you feel about yourself. Your own quiet, loving confidence about who you are and your abilities as a parent.
  3. Purpose – all of the clues to your life’s purpose are in your LightPaths. Through understanding your LightPaths, you can learn how to be of service and make a difference in the world.

It’s quite simple to know if you are living your life in your LightPaths. Whenever you experience positive emotions, you are responding to the world from your LightPaths. This could be an active positive emotion such as feeling happy, excited, or dynamic. Or it could be a softer, more passive, positive emotion, such as feeling content, blessed, or undisturbed. 

Any positive emotion = energy expansion = LightPaths = happy and successful parenting


Your DarkPath is a place of collapsed energy, and parenting mistakes happen when you are responding to your children and the situation from your DarkPath. Imagine the difference it will make to you and your children, when you understand the triggers for your DarkPath and know how to reach for your LightPaths instead. Imagine when you can transform, and even avoid, these parenting mistakes.

Even the word DarkPath is a bit heavy, but it’s not all bad. The purpose of the DarkPath is to give you choices that facilitate personal growth. Will you choose to be light or choose to be dark? Will you choose to make decisions from love or from frustration? Will you choose to be strong or weak? 

Any negative emotion (anytime you are feeling bad) means you are responding to your child and the situation from your DarkPath. This could be an active negative emotion such as feeling frustrated or aggressive. Or it could be a more passive negative emotion, such as feeling doubtful or overwhelmed. 

When your energy is collapsed, when you are responding to life from your DarkPath, there can be some serious consequences. Firstly, you have no energetic protection from the world and are therefore vulnerable to both physical and mental illness. Secondly, you get disconnected from your wisdom and are unable to think straight or make good parenting decisions. The DarkPath causes negative thoughts, negative emotions and negative experiences. All of your parenting mistakes come from your DarkPath. 

Any negative emotion = energy collapse = DarkPath = parenting challenges
