Let Your Soul Be the Expression - Interview With D. Neil Elliott

View descriptionShare

Neil and I talk a lot today about spirituality, power and purpose. How we are beings composed of unconditional love and divinity, and how we can spend our whole lives trying to remember that one unassailable fact. After a career in project engineering management, Neil put the decades he’d spent reading about and studying spirituality into a book of his own, called A Higher Road, which aims to break down how to achieve a soul integration in seven easy-to-follow steps. Please join us for a fascinating, in-depth conversation. 


  • We are born as perfect reflections of the divine and then we accumulate these negative perceptions of ourselves. We can learn to identify and sweep away these perceptions through a meticulous, step-by-step process. 
  • Time is going to pass anyway, so if you have a decision to make, consider yourself in a few years either having accomplished “x,y.z” or wishing you had. 
  • Anything that is consistent with unconditional love will bring other things into your life that are in alignment with the divine. 
  • You won’t accomplish spiritual/self enlightenment in one magic moment, but you can commit to a lifetime process in a moment. 



  • “We are born; our egos take control; and we become these method actors that don't understand our reality. Our reality is our soul. This is just a tool, this is a rented vehicle, this body. And the thing is we never step outside of that and go, ‘Oh, wait a minute, I'm just playing a role, I'm just learning lessons that I need to learn.’ I actually have this control of whatever it is that I'm doing. If I can keep that control, consistent with unconditional love, with all of the things that you know, are in this unified divine consciousness, then my life will be entirely different.”
  • “All the safety, the peace, the security, the love, the joy that you are looking for, it's all inside of you. It's not without you. Everything that you see is merely a reflection of your beliefs. You change your beliefs, you change what you see. But in order to change your beliefs, you need to have a process to do that.”
  • “When you go into the silence and stillness, this gives the opportunity for the divine to start to enter into you.”
  • “What you create will magnetize to you, so if the more you give and you give with love, the more that will come back to you.”



Neil had a successful career in engineering project management, a happy marriage and family, but he was in a very dark place. After Covid hit, his career dried up, and then the decades he’d spent studying spirituality kicked in. Spending so much time with himself, he realized that he had all the qualities inside himself that he was searching for to “give himself enlightenment”. His journey brought him to writing his book, A Higher Road. Now he wants to support other people as they ask themselves those defining questions to help become actualized, fulfilled human beings. Neil and his family live in Vancouver BC, Canada.
