Welcome to our Spirit Page
What is the spirit? What is
the soul? Are these simply two different words
with the same meaning? These questions have long
been debated by religious leaders, scholars, and
philosophers throughout time. Just as one cannot
see the essence of their life source or Creator,
one cannot see the essence of the spirit or the
Spirit is that invisible force you feel within your body and being. It is your breath, your heartbeat, the consciousness directing all the functions of your body and mind. It is spirit staring back at you through your physical eyes, when you look into a mirror. Spirit is the consciousness that animates all life, and the mystery and majesty that connects all to its spiritual source.
Pagans, Wiccas, occultists, lightworkers all believe in spirit. Even psychics and mystics acknowledge that life is more than just physical form. Edgar Cayce, the twentieth century psychic and medical clairvoyant known as “the Sleeping Prophet,” saw soul as the developing part of a person’s whole nature, the bridge between spirit realms and physical realms, between the divine self and the earth-bound self. He defined soul as man’s subconscious and spirit as the spark of life or super-conscious mind within the collective mind of God. To Cayce, spirit was the image of God within man, and as such, a perfect and unblemished quality within human kind. Cayce had made over 14,000 trips into afterlife realms under the influence of hypnosis.
While most religions differentiate between the spirit and the soul, most Pagan and Wicca beliefs do not. They see them as the same divine force within all things. Wicca and Pagan sects believe in the existence of a deity, or deities, as a form of the God/Goddess principles. But unlike Christians, Pagans and Wicca’s share a common belief in animism, which is the belief that everything that exists has within it a divine soul or spirit. This includes animals, plants, and everything in nature. This belief is shared by most occultists as well.
Lightworkers also believe in an inner presence that all people are endowed with, and which is used to increase spiritual awareness to reach a state of enlightenment. They define enlightenment as awareness of one’s true existence and oneness with the Creator. Christians, spiritualists, occultists, Pagans, and Wiccas all share the belief that spirit is within all people. The differences between their beliefs revolve around whether or not they see spirit and soul as being the same, or if they define them as two separate qualities. So we again return to the age-old questions: What is spirit? What is the soul? Are they one and the same?
Perhaps the answers reside in your own being. Perhaps your belief in the existence and definitions of spirit and soul can only be found in your own perceptions. It is human nature to want to understand who and what you are and how you came to be. It is human nature to seek to understand your Creator, to learn of your purpose in life. All one needs to do to experience spirit is to look around. Look into the eyes of an infant. Use Transecendental Meditation mantras to feel the spirit and soul coursing through you. Put your hand over your heart and feel it beat. Gaze deeply into your eyes in a mirror and ask: “Who is that behind my eyes, peering back at me?”
And spirit will answer.
Of the spirit:
We are all of the spirit no matter what path we choose. Our physical body is only a vessel while we are in the third dimensional reality. Or should I say tuned in to that reality.
I encourage you to continue your path to enlightenment. Choose your physical guides well. Your spiritual guides always have your best interest in mind even though what they tell you may not make immediate sense.
You are the universe in all its perfection and Grace so be sure to remind yourself of that fact from time to time.
I'm glad you could join us here please enjoy.
