What do you think, there are many words describing this, but what is it and do all the words mean the same thing?

I got thinking on this after the does our soul enter before or after birth thread...

So I am thinking our soul is with us at or very soon after conception - how about if our higher self/inner spirit enters after birth?

over to you...

My answer is from my inner thoughts, not knowledge.
I believe we are all perfect at conception, nothing else to be added, just the need to grow and embellish what we already have.

I guess it depends on who is using them.
People describe those terms in very various ways...

Here I fully agree with Mia.

Things are kinda bad though.
Baby is connected with its Soul, Higher self...
And slowly the adults disconnect it.
Like mum, dad and others.

In my understanding the Soul contains both the seed for the present day personality (the self in this life), and the progressive self (which contains all the lives you have lived peviously.

The Higher self is your self, outside of "Time" so represents both the true self and yourself in and after all lifetimes past, present, or future.

It is generally this self that choses the experiences, needed in the next lifetime.

Inner Spirit would depend how its used, although I would say that it would be the inner essence (or energy) described in TCM, that is inherited from our parents.

Consider the fool card:

To me “Inner Spirit’ defines more one’s journey as one looks inwards . Going inside to find deeper meanings of truth ( for lack of a better word), finding one’s steps to Enlightenment.

To me it’s the inner connection we have to self. It is a place more one goes to find one’s step it is in part intuition or that inner voice we all have. It is the path that opens one to the power’s one has with them.
It is in part clearing the channels ( some do this via Charkas) others might use prayer of affirmations. It is that path to fine inner peace and balance.

To me its seeing that Lighthouse on the shore that steers one’s boat clear from the rocks that would do one great harm.
When I think on “Higher Self” I go more to a collective consciousness and unconsciousness. It is again a journey but more one I feel one does not so take alone. It is finding in that meaning of why we might well be here. It is finding that worth one has to offer things to the World on lives.

It is a different level of consciousness or vibration plane that one goes to. Astral in nature at time to learn and move the Soul forward on its path. This is a meeting of them minds so to speak where one meets up with other’s on the same vibration level .
Higher self is free form the brain and the physical body it is “mind” and to me mind is Soul.

Castle


“In a castle on a hill
A past of war and haunt
An ancient secret love
Kept hidden by the hands of the stable boy
A knight and a witch
Secrets and promises
Deep in the war torn walls
Some codes forgotten by time
Some codes forever engraved in the minds of the new
Stories and legends
Kept in the walls of that castle on a hill”
