How do I link mind body and soul?

Today, most alternative therapies acknowledge the body-mind-spirit relationship. Yoga and meditation are good example of how a balance and interplay between the three is required to live a wholesome life. More than the desire to live longer, aim to live well. Body intelligence is the subject that takes us onto a path of healthy and preventive living. The sad part is, the money being spent on research today focuses on curing rather than preventing disease mainly because profits are easier and higher, when there is imbalance and ill-health.
Our body has intelligence built into it from over millions of years of mankind’s evolution. The autonomous nervous system controls many of our body functions without any conscious input from us, like breathing, digesting, and sleeping; it maintains balance with its own intrinsic healing abilities.
The miracle of our body intelligence is that it survives in spite of our abusing it. Further, in the mind- body relationship, research shows that bacteria, especially in the gut, can alter the brain and behavior, meaning emotional states change with the micro biome in the body.
In addition, in relation to health, newer studies have revealed that exposure to disease may have a huge effect on IQ or brainpower. The reason is that we use a great deal of energy in running our brains, but when affected by diseases, this energy gets diverted from the brain to where it is urgently required.

In the generally followed concept is that soul as the consciousness always exists. It is infinite and hence, always One. When a part of it manifests as intellectual, emotional and physical bodies in progression their differentiated forms give an appearance of many souls which however always remain undifferentiated.
The three bodies create a gross to subtle spectrum, while the soul remains the subtlest.Still, they are all matter carrying respective mass, with the sum total of mass remaining the same. Mind is energy, the other side of the coin. Thinking, sensing, feeling, cognition, relating etc that we ordinarily describe as mind’s activities are really bodily functions only promoted by the dynamic energy of mind.
The bodies and the soul make a single continuum and are connected. Mind is everywhere and quickly summoned where a desire directs. On the spiritual plane, the sound of “”OM”” forms a silver cord that connects them all.

There are some concepts that must be shown, and you can research these also independently:
1) Brahman= undifferentiated consciousness of the universe.
2) Atman=Brahman, and by this assertion by Adi Shankara: “”Brahman and Atman are One”” he explains that Brahman is the sort of whole that even a small piece of it remains whole and connected with the larger aspect.
3) The Three Bodies: Now, apparently separate from Brahman/Atman is a dualistic mechanism that re-connects the apparently separate dualistic self with the always united Self. These three bodies are:
a) Karmic Body
b) Subtle Body
c) Physical Body
4) You can learn more about this by searching for Koshas, which are the 5 sheaths in which the three bodies are seen. This will show you further details on the nature of these 5 bodies.
I will give a brief overview here:
Annamaya kosha, “”foodstuff”” sheath (Anna)
Pranamaya kosha, “”energy”” sheath (Prana/apana)
Manomaya kosha “”mind-stuff”” sheath (Manas)
Vijnanamaya kosha, “”wisdom”” sheath (Vijnana)
Anandamaya kosha, “”bliss”” sheath (Ananda)
The middle three are generally thought to constitute ‘the mind’.

Soul is the real and objective person. Indestructible and internal that the constitution manifests to how many inorganic and organic beings exist in the Universe. Such a person is integrated with transcendental matter to which scientific inexperience, peculiar to the era in which Thales of Miletus lived, called it electricity. Each type is offered before our senses when it is covered with ponderable matter; he gives cohesion and other physical properties to the mineral bodies, and organization, forms and biological functions to the vegetal and animal beings.- The HUMAN SPIRIT is the typical synthesis of organic nucleus of transcendental matter, which in its bosom integrates and summarizes the inferior elements or types that correspond, which, persistent and immortal, evolved, acquiring in the medium of rigorous experience, all the properties and attributes that added and harmoniously combined in the organic core in question, are revealed in faculties of conscience .
There is not a single atom (elementary particle) of tangible matter, which does not have in itself another electric atom of identical nature, that is, if the ponderable atom is red, the electric atom that serves as the soul will be of the same color; if the ponderable atom is corresponding to the first of the seven shades, the electric atom that serves as the soul will be of the same somber tone.
The tangible vehicles that serve as cover to the real living types on the face of the earth, from the vegetal to the man, are constituted by cellular elements of double matter, this is:
I. Tangible cells.
II. Electric cells
Thus, each tangible cell has its electric soul, its own life and its special functions; since the cell belongs to the bone skeleton, either to the muscular tissues, or to the blood or nervous fluid ….

There are many things you can do in your daily life to achieve overall wellness. Here are 25 simple ways to begin cultivating a mind-body-soul balance.
1. Read and learn often. Your education shouldn’t stop once you’re out of school. Open your mind to new possibilities, beliefs, and interests by reading, taking online classes, watching documentaries, and attending workshops.
2. Meditate regularly. Meditation improves memory, attention, mood, immune system function, sleep, and creativity. All it takes is a few minutes a day to start reaping the benefits.
3. Practice yoga. Yoga is amazing for your overall health. It helps you build strength, coordination, and flexibility while calming your mind. It also encompasses the mind-body-soul connection.
4. Avoid sitting for extended periods of time. Try to stand or move around while you work, if possible. Too much sitting is linked to heart disease, diabetes, and a shortened lifespan.
5. Get at least 15 minutes of moderate to fast-paced exercise each day. Live close to work? Walk or ride your bike on nice days. Exercise is important for heart health, physical stamina, and mood.

Body, mind and emotions works with energy and spirit, which relates to the soul.
The soul and the spirit vehicle, relates to the unconscious, energy and how it relates to the body. The mind identifies with feelings. Feelings are the anchors from which the mind works with memories and faculties learned over a lifetime, or capabilities, imprinted with more advanced spirit with the soul if one has cultivated it in a previous lifetime. Ego is wrapped up in the emotions and addictions to the emotions or metabolism the body has where it remembers, and has an identify of self, with other various emotions.
Emotions, thoughts, attachments, imprints from others, all influence the body and mind, and fills the subconscious with noise and imprints on the body.
Yoga and other disciplines work to reverse this and get one quiet to listen to the core spirit and soul. Then teaches the body by accepting the energies that feel like emotions, but is just energy. Those feelings we can learn to think, remember from the soul side, not the ego.
The trick is to know your body, mind and emotions for your own, and let go what is not, feel what isn’t so that you can manage your own. Spirit can from anything, and can be imprinted with memories and patterns. Knowing your own versus letting others influence you unless that is your choice. I.e. grace, salvation or a Guru shaktipat.

The soul is the real essence of you and the source of the higher consciousness we have. It comes into a body (incarnates) for one purpose only, and that is to individuate – essentially to separate from God. In order to control the physical body it creates a mind that is the controller of the brain. If we had no soul, we would have a cognitive ability probably slightly above primates.
The purpose is for us to grow our soul, and we can do that here on Earth, although few are very successful in that. Most fail dismally.
But the next realm is very different, and as a result progress along one of two paths is inevitable. But the destination that we reach is not inevitable, as one path has very few people ever learning of it on Earth. And those that take their close-mindedness with them into the next, won’t learn there either.

Soul is everything that causes you to be. It is the container for the whole of your being and the shape of your whole being. In a sense, then, one could say it is the whole Universe. Mind is the means by which anything can exist, the medium of reality. The body is the image of a localization of mind within mind. Look at your body. That image there, combined with the rest of your perceptions of your body, are in your mind (not the other way around). The three are not truly distinct from each other and share the same sort of existence.
