Our spiritual nature is our true identity. The physical body is only a vehicle for the spirit. This ‘vehicle’ allows us to experience many things on a physical level. Spirit is not the physical body, therefore, the spirit cannot be seen by most. When we pass on from the body, or transition, the physical is what dies. Since we are originally spiritual beings, our spirit is infinite and will forever live on.
In a way, we all have unlimited lives. Those who view themselves as primarily physical beings are the ones who will experience great difficulty in overstanding that our true self is our spiritual essence. And, we all have the ability to be godlike. The purpose of this article is to break down the differences between the Spirit Mind and the Physical Mind.
Let’s take a deeper look at the conscious part of the mind or, the ‘physical’ mind. The physical is our lower self spiritually. It deals with the root, sacral, and solar plexus Chakras. Many who are very rational and always using logic to try to prove a point are definitely vibrating from the physical mind. Our physical self is our lower self, which many call our dark side or shadow self. The physical side of us is that which is attracted to materials, money, desires (physical), attachments (physical), conditional love, and social aspects including groups, religions, labels, etc.
Our egoic self is associated with the physical mind. Able to take in around 40 bits of information per second, the physcial mind operates off of nature and uses the five senses (see, hear, smell, taste, touch) to make sense of the happenings in the world around us. If these faculties cannot offer an explanation for the occurences, many will discredit or reject what it is they are ‘seeing’ or ‘feeling’. The left side of the brain is associated with the physical mind and is connected to our physicality. For this reason, the physical mind sees limitations.
In contrast, the ‘Spirit’ mind is essentially the true essence of and in all of us. This mind is related to the subconscious. It is this part of the mind that holds all the answers to our soul questions. Shown in the right side of the brain, herein lies the connection to our spirituality. Many who have a hard time making sense of things but, accept that they exist without physical proof, are definitely resonating in the spiritual mind. For example, oxygen, atoms, and gravity exist, we just can’t see them.
The spiritual mind works from the sixth sense, or 1st sense, which is our spirit sense or intuition. This ‘mind’ averages 4 billion bits of information per second. It is from this mind that the power and abilities to heal the physical body are found. It is from this mind that we find our higher selves or god self. The spiritual mind is associated with the throat, brow/3rd eye, and crown Chakras.
Allowing us to control and manipulate our physical minds, the spiritual mind is our true essence and Spirit. It’s the side of us or ‘mind’ that lets us know that we are all connected regardless of race, sex, beliefs, ego, religion, and ideologies. When one is tapped into the spiritual mind, one will realize that death is only the rebirth. One will become Metaphysical, which is the study of everything beyond the physical. The spiritual mind sees no limitations.
