Humanity as spiritual Beings(on the path of evolution and Ascension). To begin with man does not simply have a soul - man is the soul that inhabits the various bodies. From an even higher perspective (beyond soul) man is the spirit, a divine spark of that which we call God. And it is this spirit that manifests as soul, which then incarnates upon the earth in order to grow, evolve, expand and ultimately return home to spirit or God, bringing with it upon its return the unique individuality and spiritual treasures it has accumulated through its process of reincarnation in the material worlds.
Therefore, let us proceed with the assumption that humanity does indeed reincarnate, using each incarnation to experience and ultimately master the various bodies. Reincarnation is indeed fact, and the process of sequential birth is inextricably interwoven with the development of the physical / etheric, Psychic/feeling or emotional / astral and mental bodies. For the sake of simplification we can say four lower bodies; the physical, etheric, astral and mental bodies. We have higher spiritual bodies as well, Wish you a great day with lots of love & light.
