THE DISTINCTION AND INTERACTION OF
- The Physical Body
- The Psychic Body
- The Soul
- The Spirit
Most people say the body is made up of body, soul and spirit but what about the psychic body. Many people confuse these bodies of man and interchange them. This is my attempt to clarify so we know who we are and what we are dealing with. #KnowThyself
PREMISE: We are Spirit beings, (Souls) on a spiritual journey in a human body trying to find our way back home to God.
1) The body is the material part of the human which houses the soul of the human on the earth plane. It is made of up of the bones, muscles, blood, brain and must be kept clean and in good health. For without a healthy body the soul cannot function at its optimum. It is the body and its appetites that we need to have control over since it is of this world and we are spirit beings.
2) The Psychic body is the ethereal or spiritual counterpart of the physical body. It is the body that manifests as a result of the interaction of the physical body and the soul. The health of the psychic body is influenced by the state of the soul which is a result of the mind i.e. thought patterns, how we interact with our physical world and others, our emotions will power, adherence to the virtues of the Spirit of God in us. It is also influenced by the healthy state of the physical body. The psychic body of man can be easily influenced by external spiritual forces and should be guarded. Some psychics are gifted to able to read people’s auras which is the color arising from the net charge or state of health of the psychic body (healthy body + soul’s disposition to God). When the physical body dies off, the psychic body is the one that floats around in the earth plane in resemblance to the physical body till it dissipates like smoke and then the soul is the one that remains to ascend to the Spiritual realm it belongs to in the Heavens (or Hell). The Psychic body is important to mystics. It is this body that is used in psychic projection, healing, telekinesis, clairvoyance, clairaudience etc, that is why various exercises are given to strengthen it and these exercises mostly comprise of proper breathing, the awakening of the psychic centres or chakras, a balanced and healthy disposition of the body and mind, by thinking, speaking and acting right an adherence of the soul’s virtues to that of the Holy Spirit of God inherent in the human.
3) The Soul, also called the Soul personality. As the name implies is the personality of the person. It is the real person. It is one that strives to become like the Holy Spirit of God by way of its thoughts, words and actions. According to Mystics it is the soul that reincarnates several times trying to perfect itself to become like God’s Holy Spirit. Just like in a classroom of learning. The Soul is the one that enters into a baby at the first breath and also depicted in creation In the book of Genesis of the Holy Bible, (…God breathed his spirit into man (Adam) and he became a living soul.
4) The Spirit of God animates all things created by God. The Holy Spirit of God is at the heart of God Himself and is Holy. It is also at the centre of the Soul of Man and it is what the soul personality tries to emulate to become God-like. It can be said to be the conscience, the still small voice, the Guardian of the soul, the Master within. To the degree by which the soul personality listens to, emulates and realizes this Spirit of God to that degree is the human ascended to become “Son of God” and infused even more and enveloped with the Holy Spirit of God.
When the human body dies off and the psychic body dissipates after carrying the soul to an extent, the soul is the real person that goes to its place in the spiritual realm. (“In my Father’s House are many mansions I will go and prepare a place for you”- Jesus the Christ)
Remember we are souls on a spiritual journey in a human earthly body trying to find our way back home to God. and once we know who we truly are then we are halfway there.
I wish us Cosmic illumination and peace profound.
