"All things in this world have souls. Not just creatures and plants. [...] The souls of things are equipped with the power to help their users by nature. Our powers draw on that, boosting it with our own souls, to be able to unleash a greater power."
― Kūgo Ginjō to Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)
"The power to dominate souls...? Is that what this is!?"
― Guido Mista on Silver Chariot Requiem (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part V: Golden Wind/Vento Aureo)
"I need you to let me touch it. The human soul — it's pure... energy. If I can siphon some of that off, I might be able to bring Sam and Dean back."
― Castiel talking to Bobby about the power of the soul (Supernatural)

The power to manipulate souls. Sub-power of Life-Force Manipulation. Not to be confused with Spiritual Force Manipulation.

Capabilities

Users can create shape and manipulate the soul, the incorporeal and immortal essence of a living thing, souls are usually most obviously present in sentient beings. At some level all biological organisms have souls, and even non-biological entities (such as rivers and mountains) possess something that is analogous to a soul.

Most users have to learn to control their own soul first and expand from there, some may be able to learn how to tap into the essence of everything living.
