Spirit or Soul? Learning The Difference Through Serge Benhayon

Only in recent years through the teachings of Serge Benhayon have I learnt the difference between spirit and Soul and felt this for myself.

I’ve always known that we had a spirit and a Soul and that we are so much more than just our physical bodies, I just didn’t really understand the difference between them – why both, I used to wonder? No one else seemed to have the answer either. Through being a student of Universal Medicine, I now know there is a very real difference in the contrasting energies of the spirit or Soul.

Back in the 80’s I became interested in many diverse alternative therapies and ‘Spiritual New Age’ pursuits from a personal growth perspective, as I was searching for ways I could improve my life.

I wanted everlasting happiness, the ideal relationship, lots of money, the perfect job and a wonderful social life with lots of friends.

There were so many books and spiritual new age courses out there telling me it was all possible, and I never doubted that because I knew that life wasn’t about fate or luck.

My spiritual quest continued and pretty much dominated my life and way of being up until 6 years ago. I didn’t once stop to consider why I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted; I just felt driven to keep on searching – feeding myself with knowledge and seeking to make some sense of life.

I eventually began to question all the so-called ‘experts’ out there who had many conflicting opinions on life and energy.

I noticed that many were not great examples of what they were offering or promoting. I observed that many who practised energy healing were living less than healthy lifestyles and relationships, including smoking, over-eating, drinking alcohol, taking drugs etc., which seemed to be in contradiction to what their modality was promising to provide. None of this made sense to me.

The time came when I began to look for truth and I knew that I couldn’t rely on anyone ‘out there’ to give me this as everyone had differing versions of the truth.

I realised that I needed to feel for myself what the truth about life was/is.

Not long after, I attended a workshop by Chris James from Sounds Wonderful about voice work and he mentioned Universal Medicine and a man called Serge Benhayon. This was a life changing moment. After attending the first course with Universal Medicine and listening to Serge Benhayon speak, I knew that my search was finally over.

For the first time in my years of searching, Serge Benhayon was the only person to deliver some hard-hitting facts about life and energy. I could feel that there was nothing in this for him but a simple love for humanity.

Never before had anyone given me the simple facts about the two types of energy we have a choice to align to – prana or Fire, spirit or Soul—prana being the energy of the spirit and Fire being the energy of the Soul.

This was a massive revelation to me and I recall reeling with shock as I felt the truth of this. There was a huge part of me that didn’t want this to be true! This one energetic fact changed everything and I knew that life would never be the same again! Through a simple technique Serge Benhayon shared called the Gentle Breath Meditation, I was able to feel for myself the difference between spirit and Soul. Having now re-connected to my Soul through my inner-heart I felt the love that I am which had previously eluded me.

It was here that I felt a huge distinction between true love and emotional love.

It was a revelation that I didn’t need to fix myself, and no longer did I need to give my life some meaning through endless spiritual pursuits. Everything I needed was right here inside of me and all I needed to do was re-connect and live from there. Simple! This was a very humbling experience as I felt I had been completely taken in by the lure of the spiritual world.

I had been identified with my hurts and seeking to avoid feeling these at all costs – hence all the distractions I filled my life with. In contrast with this energy of the spirit, re-connecting to my Soul and learning to live from there feels simple, expansive and more real as I let go of trying to improve myself and dispel all of the beliefs I have subscribed to along the way.

I’ve learned that the bridge back to my Soul is through Self-Love and this has meant learning to feel and respect what my body needs rather than overriding it in favour of self-indulgence and disregard.

With the continued loving support of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine practitioners, along with my commitment to true healing, I am learning to be honest and take responsibility for the choices I make and how I choose to live. I have learned to embrace life again and through Universal Medicine’s no nonsense and very practical presentations I am now taking more care of my body – eating what suits me, doing gentle exercise and choosing to visit my doctor if the need arises.

I’ve stopped looking ‘out there’ and I’m learning each day how I have a choice in each moment – will it be spirit or Soul? It really is that simple!

  1. To expand Heather on what you have written about eating what ‘suits me’ I suppose you mean to eat what you feel your body truly needs?
    With true care for the body as a support which also helps us to live in a way that serves all.

  2. Appreciating the difference between Spirit and Soul gives an understanding that seems to make so much sense regarding the Divine and our Divinity than that given by the different religions which seem just intellectual theory.

  3. I’d never heard anyone present on the difference between spirit and Soul with any clarity before Serge Benhayon and to be honest hadn’t really thought about it that much, but when I heard him speak about this it just made such sense and I could relate to it, especially to how we can either be healing or harming in our expression according to where we are expressing from…

    1. Like you Fiona I had not considered the difference between the two prior to meeting Serge Benhayon. I had actually considered them to be synonymous. Learning the difference and how it is not commonly understood explains so much of the social condition that has out-played for centuries.
