A List of Spiritual Words & Terms and their Meanings

A glossary of spiritual words and terms that has been developed to help with your spiritual growth and development.

 

A

 

Astral body:  The astral body takes the same image as the physical body but is formed of finer matter. This is the link between cosmic energy and the nervous system. A subtle counterpart of the physical human body accompanying but not usually separated from it in life and surviving its death

 

Aura: The aura is the energy field that resides in all living beings. Some are born with the ability to perceive auras. When seen, auras sometimes appear as colours that reveal an individual’s spiritual and emotional personality. It can also appear as a bright light around living being.

 

Avatar: An avatar is a person who had been born as a god and therefore is not in need of spiritual training from Spirituality Expert.

 

Astral realm or plane: The place where a persons spirit goes after dying. It is a place of existence inhabited by astral bodies. It is located directly above the earth.

 

Astral projection: Astral projection, is a term used to describe an out-of-body experience that assumes the existence of a subtle body called an “astral body” through which consciousness can function separately from the physical body and travel throughout the astral plane.

 


B

 

Body-Mind centering: A movement-reeducation approach that explores how the body’s systems contribute to movement and self-awareness. The approach also emphasizes movement patterns that develop during infancy and childhood. Incorporates guided movement, exercise, imagery, and hands-on work.

 

Buddhi: Inner wisdom or intellect.

 


C

 

Chakra: There are seven main chakras in the body and they are energy centers.  They are located in the crown of the forehead, between eyebrows, in the neck, heart, navel, genitals, and rectum. They are linked to different mental states and colors. The word derives from “Chakra” which, translated from Sanskrit, means “Wheel.”

 

Chi: The universal lifeforce that forms the basis of traditional Eastern medicine and Taoist principles.

 

Here’s a list of the different psychic abilities that have been grouped as Clair’s.

 

1. Clairvoyance

 

Clairvoyance is the ability to gain information about an object, person, location, or physical event through extrasensory perception. Clairvoyance or clear seeing is the most visual of all the Clairs. You receive pictures in the form of images in your mind’s eye. They may be vivid dreams, visions, mental images, or mini-movies. You may be able to see colours of aura etc.

Images may be literal or metaphorical.

You may be inclined towards this Clair if you’re a visual person and often visualize solutions to problems. You may be good at directions or visualizing spatial problems.

 

2. Claircognizance

 

The ability for a person to acquire psychic knowledge without knowing how or why he or she knew it. You know it to be true in your mind’s eye, even though you did not hear or see it.

It may be a stroke of instant information or a download.

This Clair can also manifest as instincts.

 

3. Clairaudience

 

Clairaudience or clear hearing means that you are able to hear voices or messages from the spiritual realms. You may hear them in your ears.

An example is, that you may be driving and suddenly hear ‘left turn’ even though you are the only one in the car.

You might be inclined towards Clairaudience if you are naturally attuned to sounds, music or toning.

 

4. Clairsalience

 

The ability for a person to acquire psychic knowledge by means of a smell. Insights come through the perception of a smell. Such as smelling your deceased grandmother’s perfume when there is nobody else around.

These odours can also be perceived and not actually carry the physical sensation of smell.

 

5. Clairgustance

 

The paranormal ability to taste a substance without putting anything in one’s mouth. Those who possess this ability are able to perceive the essence of a substance from the spiritual or ethereal realms through taste.

You may, for example, taste the favourite food of a deceased loved one.

 

6. Clairtangency

 

The ability to perceive information by physical touch. Any psychic information is triggered when you physically touch or handle a person or thing. You are able to perceive facts about things or people by touching them.

You may gain insights into people by touching their watch or their hand.

 

7. Clairsentience

 

Clairsentience is a clear physical feeling. You actually feel the physical feeling in your body that others are experiencing.

An example is if someone is having a stomach ache, you feel either pain or a sensation in your stomach too. You may also be able to feel emotional injuries where they manifest in the body.

 

8. Clairintellect

 

Clairintellect is clear thinking. This happens when your thoughts can manifest as your intuition. You may also notice that in conversation your words come through and seem like they are words from a higher source of consciousness.

This can manifest as having ‘epiphanies’.

You may be inclined towards clear thinking if you are very left-brained and are a linear thinker.

 

9. Clairempathy

Clairempathy or clear emotion is sensing other people’s emotions, thoughts, or symptoms. It is an awareness of emotional energy. For example, someone crying might make you cry.

It’s important, as a Clairempath to understand how to balance your empathy, how to not take on the ‘stuff’ of other people, or walk into energy fields.

The difference between Clair’s ‘empath’ and ‘sentience’ is empaths sense the emotion and sentiences physically feel it.

Determinism: The philosophical assumption is that all behavior and observable events have been caused.

 

Dualism: In philosophy and theology, a system that explains all phenomena in terms of two distinct and irreducible principles, e.g., ideas and matter (as in Plato, Aristotle, and modern metaphysics) or mind and matter (as in psychology).

Whilst I don’t define myself as a psychic/medium, I do pick up on energy and can ‘read’ people often unintentionally and without the person realising what is taking place. For example, when I am with a group of people I can ‘home’ in on the person and see their past and future.

There have been many situations when the experience has been frightening. In such situations I remove myself from the space (as far as possible) and readjust my personal energy and spirit, to bring it back into balance. The experience leaves me unsettled. My personal balance needs to be restored quickly.

We are definitely energy.  Energy within a physical body. Now, you may wish to consider/translate/ refer to the energy as spirit.  Regardless of what you call it, we are far more than our physical bodies.

The answer to the question correlates with your interpretation/perception of the word ‘spirit’. And from that perspective, we resoundingly have spirit/energy within us, which leaves our physical bodies when we die.

Are We Spirits Or Do We Have A Spirit In Us?

My work has provided me with an opportunity to work with individuals like Dr David Hufford, a trailblazer in the scientific research of various types of spiritual phenomena. His work is unique in the way he examines personal experiences and places them within a scientific framework. This approach allows for analysis and it contextualizes these experiences within the fields of folklore, science and spirituality.

 
 
 
 

He has shared with me his work on EXTRAORDINARY SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES (ESEs) AMONG COMBAT VETERANS. It explores several ESEs which include near-death experiences, sleep paralysis and after-death communications. The study aimed to understand how common these experiences are among veterans and how well health providers can recognize and respond to them.

 
 
 
 
 
 

The findings are eye-opening and have significant implications for Veterans and Military departments, as employers

So let’s look at the research

1. The research focus and getting to Know the Veterans and Their Experiences:
The research began with conversations with veterans about their backgrounds and spiritual experiences. The focus was on three types of experiences: near-death experiences (NDEs), after-death communications (ADCs), and sleep paralysis with a presence (SPP).

2. Health Providers’ Understanding of Spiritual Experiences:
The aim was also to understand how well health providers could recognize and understand these experiences. Providers were presented with six different scenarios, including experiences of grief, nightmares, and flashbacks, as well as NDEs , ADCs and SPP.

3.  Who Took Part?

The participants included veterans and a mix of military and non-military health providers. The group was diverse, with social workers, psychologists, nurses and counsellors all taking part.

4.  Everyday Spirituality Among Veterans:

A specific scale was used to gauge how often veterans felt spiritual in their daily lives. It was found that veterans who had experienced two or three types of spiritual experiences were more likely to interpret their everyday experiences through a spiritual lens.

 


Findings:


Prevalence of Near-death Experience (NDE) 17/45 (37.7%):
Out of 45 subjects, 17 met the specific criteria for a near-death experience (NDE), as defined by the Greyson NDE Scale. This means they answered questions like “Did you feel separated from your body?” with responses that indicated a clear NDE. All 17 of these experiences occurred during combat, and the Army and Marines were disproportionately represented among those who had NDEs.

Prevalence of After-Death Communication (ADC) 26/45 (58%):
Using a widely recognized question to identify after-death communication (ADC), it was found that 58% of the veteran sample had experienced ADC one or more times. This is significantly higher than reported in general population studies. Among these 26 subjects, 6 reported being “in touch” with a deceased comrade, and the most frequent descendant reported was a “grandparent.” The feelings evoked by the ADC varied, including comfort, happiness, anxiety, and fear.

 

 

Prevalence of Sleep Paralysis with a Presence (SPP) 14/45 (31%) (1 or more times):

By using a specific question from a 1991 survey, it was found that 31% of the veterans experienced sleep paralysis with a sense of a strange presence in the room.


Prevalence of Having Had One or More ESE: More than twice as many subjects reported having had one or more of the Extraordinary Spiritual Experiences (ESEs) surveyed. Specifically, 14 had none, while 31 had one or more



How Health Providers Respond to Spiritual Experiences: It was found that health providers weren’t very familiar with these spiritual experiences, especially NDEs. When asked how they would respond to these experiences, the answers varied. Some said they would treat the experience, others said they would refer the patient to a specialist, and some said they would reassure the patient.


How Do Providers See Themselves? It was found that both military and non-military providers didn’t see themselves as very religious, but they did see themselves as quite spiritual. This was similar to what the veterans and the general population said about themselves.



Understanding and Responding to Spiritual Experiences: It was found that health providers were more familiar with common symptoms like grief, nightmares and PTSD flashbacks than with spiritual experiences such as NDEs. This suggests that health providers need more training to recognize and respond to these spiritual experiences.



The providers in the study were almost certain to refer veterans to a psychiatrist. It was found that they were very unlikely to reassure these individuals. Interestingly, only one respondent chose to refer a veteran to a chaplain for the after death communication experience. The providers viewed the ESEs as more severe and pathological than common traumatic grief reactions, recurrent nightmares, or PTSD flashbacks.


 

 
 
 
 
 

These findings provide a detailed insight into the spiritual experiences of combat veterans, revealing a higher prevalence of these experiences compared to the general population. The results highlight the complexity and diversity of these experiences and their significant presence in the lives of those who have served in combat.
This study has opened up a new frontier in our understanding of the spiritual experiences of combat veterans. It has shed light on the prevalence of extraordinary spiritual experiences (ESEs) among veterans and highlighted the need for greater awareness and understanding among health providers.
The findings are striking. Nearly 4 in 10 veterans reported having a near-death experience, and more than half reported after-death communications. These numbers are a wake-up call, showing us that these experiences are not rare, isolated events, but a significant part of many veterans' lives. However, the study also revealed a gap in knowledge among health providers. Many were unfamiliar with these experiences and unsure how to respond. This is a crucial finding, as it highlights the need for more education and training for health providers. Veterans who have these experiences need to feel understood and supported, not dismissed or misunderstood.

So, where do we go from here?

The first step is to raise awareness. We need to share these findings with the wider medical community and the public. We need to start conversations about these experiences and break down the stigma and misunderstanding that often surrounds them.

 

Next, we need to invest in education and training for health providers. They need to be able to recognize these experiences and understand their potential impact on a veteran’s mental and emotional health. They also need to know how to respond in a way that is supportive and respectful.

Finally, we need more research. This study has provided a valuable starting point, but there is still so much we don’t know. We need to explore these experiences in more depth, understand their causes and effects, and investigate how best to support veterans who have them.

 

In conclusion, this study has taken us on a fascinating journey into the spiritual lives of combat veterans. It has shown us that these experiences are more common than we might think, and it has highlighted the need for more understanding and support. As we move forward, let’s keep these findings in mind and strive to create a world where all veterans feel seen, heard and understood.

 

Final Thoughts
This study has revealed that these profound ESE experiences are more prevalent than we might think. However, many health providers are unfamiliar with these experiences, highlighting a need for more awareness and education. This study is a wake-up call, showing us that these spiritual experiences are a significant part of many veterans’ lives and calling for more research and understanding. It’s a fascinating glimpse into a world we don’t often see and a reminder of the importance of supporting and understanding our combat veterans.

Quora Question Answered – How come I have sleep paralysis so much to the point where it doesn’t phase me anymore?

Sleep paralysis has become normalized and incorporated as a normal experience due to the frequency of your episodes. You have psychologically become used to the episodes and now they are part of your everyday sociological experience. You have become immune so to speak.

Quora Question Answered – During my sleep paralysis the other night it felt suffocated and scared. This morning I experienced it differently like someone was hugging me

For some time now, I have felt that the entities who visit me during my sleep paralysis episodes are the same entities who are with me during the day. That they are my spiritual guides who are my constant companions in non-physical form. I too have felt a depth of love and compassion from the sleep paralysis entities that continues throughout my waking hours.

 

It is our perception and fear that causes us to see sleep paralysis as negative, yet when you move past this initial perception, the experience changes into something magical.

 

I encourage you to focus on the positive emotions that the experience evoked. Having had sleep paralysis for over 30 years chronically, I can clearly say that the experience is not going to harm you and that by focusing on the positive aspects, you not only encourage the expression of the care and love that you felt, but you also allow yourself to transition past the negative perception and align with positive Universal energies.

 

It is indeed exciting times, as you get to experience something that very few don’t.
