The Difference Between the Soul and the Spirit

Written by Gary Wonning

Many people confuse the soul and the spirit. What is the difference, if any?

Technically, the soul and the spirit are the same energy, they just reside in different dimensions. 

The dimension the energy finds itself in determines whether it is the soul or the spirit.  The soul is that which dwells in every human being during it’s physical existence, when the soul passes from the human body through the light, it becomes the spirit.

The memories of past lives are stored in the spirit, so when a spirit enters human existence most of what the spirit remembers is lost to the soul. The memories remain in the spirit world and only occasionally do the memories flood through to the physical plane. 

When they do , it is to enlighten the individual and is a reminder it is time to delve into the souls past and relearn lessons taught during a previous time. 

The Akashic Records, the memories of the spirit, can only be accessed from spirit, and these live records of the universe’s existence are available to anyone who enters the spirit realm. 

These records are most often accessed by going into meditation and hypnosis, but many times our Christ Consciousness will allow spirit to cross the boundary between the physical world and the spirit world to give us a hint of the existence of the land beyond time, prodding us to investigate further the realities of other dimensions in time.

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures.
