The Soul & Higher Consciousness

What is Spirituality?

Spirituality is a very broad concept that could be defined in many ways. It is when we search for that deeper meaning and purpose in life and for the purposes of my work, it is the concept of believing in a higher power or connection to something much larger than self.  It is when you recognise that you are so much more than just your physical body. The spirit element in the triad terminology of the mind, body and spirit.

The concept of spirituality may be in the form of a structured religion, but it doesn’t have to be religious. It could also be about connecting to God, source energy, the energy of creation, the power of the universe, invisible life force energy, the power of nature, connecting to an angel or guide – whatever it would mean personally to you. Spirituality is a unique journey to each individual. There is no right or wrong way to be spiritual. The important thing is to find what works for you and to nurture your spiritual growth. Reconnecting to your soul and your Divine essence can be referred to as spiritual awakening, soul growth, a journey of the soul or an ascension journey, or a growth in consciousness.

THE SOUL

The soul is seen as the immaterial essence of a person, which includes one’s identity, personality, and memories. It is believed that the soul is immortal and survives the death of the body. As with spirituality, the are many individual and different ways to conceptualise the soul.

Some people believe that the soul is a separate entity from the body, while others believe that the soul is simply a way of referring to the mind or consciousness. The is what connects us to something larger than ourselves, and it is what gives our lives meaning. It can lead on a huge journey of self-discovery and self-growth, and to connect more deeply with the world around us.

The soul is a complex and mysterious concept, but it is one that is central to many spiritual traditions. Here are some of the ways that the soul is often described in spirituality;

  • It is the seat of consciousness and awareness.
  • It is the source of our thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
  • It is the immortal part of us that remains after we die.
  • It is our connection to something larger than ourselves.
  • It is our authentic or true self, the part of us that is not limited by our physical body.

CONSCIOUSNESS

Consciousness is another broad topic, but for the purposes of connecting the concepts of my work together simply, I will refer to it in terms of the mind.

What we think of as the mind has three facets – conscious, subconscious and superconscious

The Conscious Mind is our ego self. It is the earthly identity and memory in which our soul clothes itself to survive in a physical reality. It is our judge, negotiator and conscious controller of our daily experiences. It is the part of ourselves with which we most often identify. Our personality.

The Subconscious Mind, even though we are not aware of it, constantly monitors and records our daily thoughts words and experiences, and it remembers things the conscious mind may have long forgotten. It is big data store house, and creates our beliefs and emotions based on what it has stored.

The Superconscious can be said to be our direct contact to the Divine.  That Higher Part of us, that connection to the Universe. It keeps track of our spiritual purpose and guides us through our life’s lessons. If we live constantly in ego consciousness, we often do not recognise this part of ourselves. It could also be called be our intuition, our sixth sense, our gut feeling or Higher Guidance.
