The spiritual sages say that each and every one of us is inhabited by what can be called a sacred spirit, or soul spirit. This type of energy in our psyche is also known as our higher self. It is what we used to access a higher sense of moral corrections or direction in life.
There is a difference between soul spirit and the ordinary spirit that we summon up each day to get us out of bed. Our bodily spirit refers often to our physical energy and our chi, which is the energy that surrounds us and fuels us throughout the day. That kind of spirit has to do with your health and maintaining a healthy and cheerful sense of optimism and well being from day to day.
Some people also house a soul spirit in their aura in the form of a spirit orb. These spheres are often bright and hover around us. Only psychics and seers seem to be able to see these energy balls, which are actually concentrations of astral energy. Sometimes they symbolize people and at other times they are simply entities. Sometimes a spirit orb can even be a personal angel or a spirit guide. People with deceased pets sometimes have these glowing balls in their auras.
Examples of spirit orbs can often be seen in photos of auras. These show up as little round balls of light floating around the person’s body. Usually, they float around the head area and, in particular, around the ears and above the crown of the head. The spirit orb above the crown of the head is often thought to be the astral embodiment of the higher self. This orb is used in some spiritual disciplines as a way of attaching the crown energy to the higher self which, in turn, talks to the highest power of all – God.
These spirit orbs are not to be confused with religious concepts, such as the Holy Spirit, although there is a Holy Spirit school of metaphysics that believes in the gifts given to people. Gifts of Holy Spirit are considered to be empathy, telepathy, clairvoyance and clairaudience. You can even attend a Holy Spirit retreat center that specializes in this type of spiritual development.
There are many different types of churches that deal with Holy Spirit possession. Usually, the spirit is summoned by the calling of “holy spirit come.” Elizabeth Clare Prophet is an excellent example of a modern prophet who uses these types of chants in order to draw things like money and love into her life.
