Soul vs Higher Self

The Higher Self and the Soul are often seen as identical and interchangeable but differ significantly. The Soul is a transcendent (uncharged) Field without personal, spiritual, or worldly meaning, while the Higher Self is a spiritual (charged) field with personal, spiritual, and religious meaning.

The Higher Self is the conductor of the I-personality, the lower self

The Higher Self plays a crucial role as the conductor of the I-personality, the lower self. It is closely linked to the ego consciousness of the personality and possesses a broader awareness (self-knowledge) of the self’s essential needs. Its primary function is to uphold or restore balance in the foundations of the personality (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chakras).

Self-knowledge entails a comprehensive understanding of the self’s automatic (spontaneous) psychological mechanisms. These mechanisms are designed to maintain the necessary ‘dominion’ of the self, the ego. While they may yield short-term success, they can hinder the continuous personality development toward individuation* in the long run. 

*The individuation process involves several psychological stages of increasing personal and spiritual autonomy.

The spontaneous intuition, the instinct of the Higher Self, connects 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 into what is perceived instinctively.

The beliefs of an individual’s entire personality shape the insights of the 6th chakra. Through the 6th chakra, one perceives what they believe in, whether it’s ghosts, angels, aliens, or similar entities. It is possible even to perceive an Archetype and mistake it for the Soul or a deceased loved one. Essentially, one sees what one wishes to see. What one imagines reveals an emotional need of the self that requires attention and healing.

The cooperation between the 2nd and 6th chakras is spiritual and guides someone safely through society (the world).

A person’s personality’s metaphysical and spiritual spheres are loaded with conscious and subconscious properties, memories, and possibly experienced traumas. All these elements are present in each person’s aura or energetic appearance, making them unique in composition. Due to this uniqueness, every person’s aura radiance is also one-of-a-kind, and as a result, they attract their unique life experiences. This process is called the law of Karma or cause and effect.


The Heart Center as the Gateway of the Soul

The Soul is a transcendent, life-giving, unconditional principle that animates all people, believers, and unbelievers. It has no self-consciousness and is beyond the world’s gravitational forces.

The Soul works in secret in the individual. Its power is only expressed when Soul consciousness can flow.

Soul consciousness flows through and from unconditionally loving hearts. Hearts purged of all worldly and supernatural 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 occurs within the microcosm and between people close to each other when they experience an equally meaningful telepathic transference (based on resonance in phase equal frequency).

The shared experience of mystical unity, Soul consciousness, occurs between Souls. It doesn’t matter if they are close to each other or as far as on the other side of the planet. Soul consciousness transcends the microcosm and can, therefore, be experienced between two or more Souls worldwide. Extremely subtly or clearly as day, they function together as one entity—as one heart and one Soul.
