Often the Higher Self and the Soul are seen as identical and interchangeable with each other, but essentially they differ as night and day. The Soul is a transcendent (uncharged) Field without any personal, spiritual, or worldly meaning. The Higher Self is a spiritual (charged) field of personal, spiritual and religious meaning.
The Higher Self as the conductor of the I-personality, the lower self
The Higher Self relates to the ego consciousness of the personality. It has a broader awareness (self-knowledge) of the essential needs of the self and serves to maintain or restore balance in the foundations of the personality (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chakra).
Self-knowledge is having a broader understanding of the instinctive psychological mechanisms of the self. These mechanisms are aimed at the necessary maintenance of the “dominion” of the self, the ego. They may be successful in the short term, but in the long term these mechanisms can undermine the ongoing personality development towards individuation*.
*The process of individuation goes through several psychological stages of increasing personal and spiritual autonomy.
The instinctive intuition of the Higher Self is connected with the 2nd chakra, the gut feeling. The intuition of the 6th or forehead chakra, the third eye, is connected to the 2nd and can give insight about what has been perceived intuitively.
The insights of the 6th chakra are determined by the beliefs of the entire personality. One perceives through the 6th chakra, what one believes in; ghosts, angels, aliens or the like. One can even observe an Archetype and assume that it is the Soul, or a deceased loved one. One sees what one wishes to see. What one imagines reveals an emotional need of the self that needs attention and healing.
The cooperation between 2nd and 6th chakra is spiritual in nature and serves to guide someone safely through society (the world).
The metaphysical spiritual spheres of the personality are loaded with conscious and subconscious properties of the personality, all memories and possibly experienced traumas. All these elements can be found in the Aura or the energetic appearance of each person and are therefore unique in composition! Every person is unique and so his or her Aura radiance is also unique and therefore attracts its own unique life experiences. This attraction is the law of Karma, of cause and effect.
The Heart Center as the Gateway of the Soul
The Soul is a transcendent life-giving principle and unconditional in nature. The Soul enlivens all people, believers and unbelievers. The Soul has no self-consciousness. The Soul is beyond the gravitational forces of the world.
In the individual the Soul works in secret. The power of the Soul is only expressed when Soul consciousness can flow.
Soul consciousness flows through and from unconditionally loving hearts. Hearts purged of all sympathies and allegiances, including those of the self for the higher self!
The difference between the shared telepathic experience* and the shared mystical unity experience.
The shared telepathic experience takes place between people who are in proximity to each other and experience a similar meaningful telepathic transfer (resonance).
The shared mystical unity experience takes place between two or more Souls who are at a great distance from each other and function as one entity, one heart, one Soul.
