There have been many definitions of this concept. For example the ancient Hebrews had no conception of the soul; that is an idea the ancient Greeks came up with.
Christians conception say a person is made of three elements: body, spirit and soul. Thinking christian like,
Quote:

* A person's body is that which interacts with the physical world. It is the *residence* of a person's soul & spirit.
* A person's soul is the physical life principal -- that which gives life to one's physical body; that which interprets physical stimuli {sight, sound, touch, taste, odor}; that which is the seat of emotions {love, hate, fear, anger, and so forth} relative to beings & objects in the physical realm .
* A person's spirit is the spiritual life principle -- that which gives life to a person in the non-physical realm of God & angels; that which perceives & interprets non-physical stimuli {faith, "intuition," "premonition," and so forth}; that which is the seat of emotions {love, hate, fear, anger, and so forth} relative to beings in the non-physical realm {God, angels, cherubim, seraphim, demons, etc.}.





So, the "soul" and the "spirit" are similar in the manner in which they are used in the spiritual life of the believer. They are different in their reference. The "soul" is man's horizontal view with the world. The "spirit" is man's vertical view with the divine. It is important to understand that both refer to the immaterial part of man, but only the "spirit" refers to the man's walk with God or the higher entity. The "soul" refers to man's walk in the world, both material and immaterial.

The soul is your unique imprint in the Universe...the consciousness that expands through expirence and increased awareness. I believe the spirit is the glue that binds our souls together. Some spirits are more imposing than others, and I believe when you sense the spirit of someone you are feeling "vibes."
