At the broadest perspective or understanding, the soul is the fire which animates these bodies and all things, so yes the soul generates all of our thoughts at various levels including thoughts from the brain’s ego, intellect, and mind chatter.
The soul also generates the thoughts and feelings which come from our emotions. The more elevated we become in our vibration, the more our thoughts will come directly from our soul/higher self in the higher dimensions of self.
When we align ourselves with our higher self and soul, we become a completely guided individual. If we pay attention we will be able to use our thoughts as part of the governing factor which guides us and gives us understanding. Until the time we are aligned many of our thoughts come from our ego and it will be difficult to separate the two sources.
And as we travel on our spiritual path and we will be able to decipher the more subtle energies of the soul/higher self, and this will help lead us to a more direct connection with our soul / higher self. This connection is sublime. This is how I have precisely been able to push the boundaries of the higher dimensions at this earth school. This is how I directly hear and communicate with my higher self all throughout the day with all things matter great and small.
In the past, when I have pushed through higher dimensional realities, thoughts came to me like breadcrumbs leading me to new pathways of understanding. This stretched my knowledge/understanding beyond what was previously normal for me. Little by little the mind stretches to take in the new perceptions and understanding that came. This is also how we can go deep and directly connect to the energy of the Universal Soul of all things.
Our Self, as a being, is made up of three parts: our physical self who hosts our ethereal self (higher self) and soul self. The higher self is the host for the soul and who we are when we are not in this physical body. The higher self is like a bridge for our consciousness; it is the go-between to our soul and physical self. The soul is the part of us which has no beginning and no end and knows no limits. Only higher self and physical self has limits and has a beginning and end.
At the beginning of a Universal Cycle, the soul comes out of the One and is given a higher self to function and play in creation. The soul stays in the higher self until the end of the Universal Cycle and then it either merges back into the One or the higher self enlists in the angelic kingdom to serve other Universal Cycles. The soul and higher self explore the spectrum of light via training grounds like earth or other planetary schools located thru out the universe.
When entering a school, physical bodies are given to the soul and higher self as vehicles. Bodies could be anything in the physical realm that a soul wants to experience and not limited to the human experience. Often the soul will split itself into 4-6 parts in what is called lifelines to have a more varied experience and to get the maximum out of school. When the expression of self is no longer needed or we have completed our lessons and schooling on a training ground, our lifelines merge back into us. Lifelines have their own soul and higher self, which is connected to the original soul and higher self. Most of the beings on the planet in this 3-D game are lifelines of their original soul. In such cases, the original soul and higher self stay on the other side of the veil guiding its players or lifelines.
Sleep is necessary for regenerating all parts of Self. Though meditation is a useful tool, sleep is the paramount way of connecting to our higher self and soul. If we are a life- line player, sleep is essential for us to connect to our original, greater self. When we are asleep and dreaming our higher self is awake and taking care of the business of Self on the other side of the veil. When we are awake here our higher self is asleep there. When we are asleep information is downloaded to us and when we are awake we upload information to our sleeping higher self.
If you have paid any attention to your dreams you know there are many kinds of dreams to experience. Sometimes we dream about the lives of the other parts of us or lifeline players. Sometimes we are being instructed or informed and guided by our soul and higher self on a topic or issue in our life. There is so much more to dreaming than people who study dreams realize. This 3-D reality is also a kind of dream, which can be changed without the physical self-realizing a change has happened.
If you study and pay attention to your dreams you will realize that the dream reality of our sleep is as valid as our waking reality dream. Are you awake now or are you dreaming? Are you sure? Yes, this is a trick question, but worth pondering. Because of the dream quality of reality, it is possible for a pole shift and shift in consciousness (a theme change) to take place for this earth school and most of us would not know it. It would be as simple as going to sleep and waking up in a new peaceful, harmonious reality.
This is how planetary schools change their themes. The shift is not happening because of evolution etc. This is a dream… the notion of evolution is part of the dream. We grow lighter so we can see the dream! After the theme changes, it will all seem very normal… like it has always been this way. We simply wake up from being asleep and dreaming and while asleep we were conditioned for the change of theme. Perhaps, after the theme change occurs, it might seem as if the nightmare of this life is only a distant, fading memory of a past dream.
Row row row your boat gently down the stream… merely merrily merely merrily life is just a dream!
