I have often heard people talking to one another saying “he/she has a strong spirit”, which is sometimes used to describe a horse that is full of life “the spirited horse”. Spirit is often referred to indirectly with haunted house for example. The curiosity to seek greater knowledge regarding the unseen, the paranormal and the metaphysical aspects of life has always been there. I also believe that everyone to a greater or lesser degree is naturally seeking a deeper spiritual path that brings greater peace to mind and body.
The “Spirit” is one of two life forces that are present within the physical body, the second being the soul. Without the presence of the spirit and soul the physical body would not be able to live or indeed move a finger. If you were to ask yourself a basic but fundamental question of what makes your body move? Because surely it does not just move by itself does it? What would your answer be?
The spirit serves a greater force i.e. the soul. Just as is the physical body serves the spirit and the soul. I understand that the soul is consciousness that holds all vibrations of consciousness, the activity of which extends from the lowest the logical third dimensional consciousness up into fifth level and beyond.
The physical body and spirit are ruled by the soul. It therefore stands that the physical body is the Temple of the Soul, which is being guided by the Soul through the activity of the Spirit force. The spiritual force is everywhere because God’s consciousness is in all things, which I refer to as “The Spirit of Life”.
First there was spirit then came matter. The spirit is the server of the soul and the physical body serves the spirit and soul. If anyone separates themselves from the spirit of life, then the lower mind – logical – will dominate. The Ego may gain control and the emotional body can become a dominating factor in one’s life. It is from here that the “physical willpower” often becomes the dominating force that is used to manifest the life experiences, which has the effect of taking energy from the physical self. This often creates a separation from the spirit and soul vibrations that are connected to spiritual values and higher consciousness.
If the ego continues to dominate the life force a greater separation will be established between logic and higher consciousness, which can lead to a physical imbalance or illness due to the stress created.
On the other hand the “Spiritual will” follows another channel that is directed by Soul consciousness, which creates higher mind activity. The higher mind is not controlled or influenced by the lower mind, the ego or the emotional body. Unlike the physical willpower the spiritual willpower gives energy to the physical body to seek spiritual wisdom and to live in harmony with others. Positive thought is one such vibration, as is love and light; these are the very building blocks of the Universe and the physical body. There are differences in our physical personalities, but on a Soul level everyone is brother or sister where truth, compassion, peace, love and joy reside.
If you chiefly live your life through the emotional body then imbalance will ensue, where you may find yourself going around in circles that seem to be going nowhere? This is because the lower minds perception of life is limited to the physical laws of time, distance and matter that are deeply connected to the five physical senses. But what does the Spirit feel? The Spirit is also connected to the three higher senses, those of Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience. These are the three higher senses that connect the Soul to the physical self that bring about enlightenment.
To summaries: “The spirit of Life” is the penultimate driving force of life. It is the energy that motivates the physical body that is guided by Soul consciousness. Each breath is governed by consciousness and the state of your consciousness determines the choices you make, followed by your actions. These are the forces that make up your world. As individuals we have the power to make a difference by being in touch with your feelings (transformed emotions) to follow the heart and listen more deeply to your intuition that’s taking you into the light.
The soul constantly seeks to guide the spirit to enhance the life’s force to serve from the heart, not from Ego or fear. To live in the now by being fully present, which is where magic happens. Each lifetime you decide to return to develop spiritually.
But why, why do I decide which country, parents and the time to reincarnate? Those decisions you made give you the best opportunity to grow spiritually. This is the only reason you are here on the school of Mother Earth. You have already made that choice. The proof of that fact is that you are here reading this article!
“The Spirit of Life” can at times feel like a very complex path to follow, but for me simplicity is a key that unlocks any door. You intuitively know what True, what Love is, because you have experienced and tasted it before. But you are still hungry for that purity, that peace of mind that unites body, spirit and Soul.
Whenever you live a life other than through the heart, you separate yourself from “The Spirit of Life”. Are you in denial of our true Soul vibration, that of unconditional Love.
May the wisdom of your decisions carry you through the ups and downs of life until you reach the shore of your reality?
Love and light, Ralph Jenkins
