Where Does the Soul Enter the Human Body?

Born in Holland Nadine emigrated to South Africa taught art therapy and had a spiritual awakening that influenced her whole outlook on life.

When Does the Soul Enter the Human Body?

In my years of study on this topic, I was very influenced by The Urantia Book. In there it reads that the Soul is the spiritual counterpart of a human being which is born at the moment of the person's first moral choice - usually at about age five. That is why I was drawn to stage both Hans and Liesbeth – the two walk-in characters in my novels - to be walk-ins from the age of 5.
The Rosicrucians say that the human soul hovers around the human baby from the first breath until around the age of 5. Then the Soul energy enters through the Pineal Gland and marks the arrival of the indwelling Spirit of God into the mind of a human being. Thereafter, the Soul grows with each and every decision of the human mind.

This sentence speaks to me: All Soul-evolving humans are literally the evolutionary sons of God the Father and God the Mother, the Supreme Being.

A Philosophical Journey of the Soul

When I wanted to share my insight on our Pineal Gland - which I perceive to be the entry gate into a human baby body, I was drawn to first share the extraordinary experiences of Nikola Tesla.

Why? Tesla's visions were so vivid that he was sometimes unsure of what was real and what was imaginary. The Extraordinary Experiences of this man who changed the world in many ways led me to believe that he had an ability to tap into higher cosmic spheres where all knowledge is held.

The Worlds between Worlds

Around 1918, Tesla started to receive what he considered to be voice transmissions, except the voices he was picking up were not human.

Had Tesla's Pineal Gland established a connecting link between other dimensions? Could he communicate with others in the spiritual world?

As Tesla grew older, he became more interested in spirituality and mankind's place in the universe.


What is the Pineal Gland?

The Pineal Gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain and is sometimes called the "Third Eye" as it is a light-sensitive, centrally-located organ with cellular features resembling the human retina.

While the physiological function of the Pineal Gland has been unknown until recent times, many mystical traditions and esoteric schools have long known that this gland is centrally located in the middle of the brain and is believed to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. When activated our dormant knowledge bursts into our consciousness.

In my novels, Annelies, ( the facilitator of The Body Codes of Light ) shares the many soul qualities we need to embody in order to re-activate our Pineal Gland.

Was Tesla the Incarnation of Leonardo Da Vinci?

After reading what Tesla so all brought into the world, and how he died as a very lonely poor man made me ask the above question. Why was Nikola Tesla (one of the greatest men that ever lived) never truly awarded for his contribution to humanity, and died under suspicious circumstances?

Could the Soul of Tesla also have lived as Leonardo Da Vinci since they had a great deal in common?
Leonardo Da Vinci Like Tesla his inventions included designs for flying machines, plant studies, war machinery, anatomy and architecture but... at the end of his life Leonardo was left alone in the world, practically died alone, deserted, except not as poor in material goods as Nicola Tesla
What More Had Both Men in Common?

  • Exceptional brains and the ability to visualize what did not yet exist.
  • Like DaVinci, Tesla was a vegetarian who rarely slept.
  • In 1928 Tesla received his last patent, which was a forerunner to the modern-day helicopter, which was initially conceived of by Leonardo da Vinci
  • Nikola Tesla has been referred to as "the man who invented the 20th century. ... that enabled robotics that were initially conceived by Leonardo da Vinci.

Were Both Man Born with an Awakened Pineal Gland?

YES, it’s my feeling that Leonardo da Vinci and Nikola Tesla were indeed born in a human body that had a far more active Pineal Gland. The same might be the case for many other geniuses that have been and are today living in our world.

When Does the Soul Enter the Human Body?

It’s my perception that our Soul is the library of Spirit and that this divine energy exists in eternity and through several other lifetimes. I personally doubt that our full soul energy can occupy a human body, let alone a newborn baby. It can only embody a small percentage of its energy, depending on the choice the soul makes during a new lifetime. I see no real purpose for a Soul to physically gestate by entering a far lower frequency world – a third-dimensional vibration level.

The transformation journey of our Soul(or part of it) back into the light, is explained through my article The Seven Realms of Existence and in my Language of Light workbook and novels.

The Third Eye

The first time I read about our Third Eye was during the late seventies. I got hold of a book by Dr Lobsang Rampa – The Third Eye. This was the first book I read after my psychic experience, so a new world opened up for me.

When I learned that this gland is activated by Light and that it controls the various biorhythms of the body, I knew that my own Soul journey had truly started. I knew I needed to study these topics in order to follow my soul purpose.
Furthermore, it totally intrigued me to learn that our Pineal Gland works in harmony with our hypothalamus gland, which directs the body's thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock. Meaning that it determines our ageing process!

This video: (Awakening exercise of the Pineal Gland) is a creative way to get in touch with your Pineal Gland – your Third Eye. Enjoy!)

One of the Biggest Cover-Ups in Human History

Every human being’s Pineal Gland can be activated to spiritual world frequencies and enables you to have the sense of all-knowing, godlike euphoria and oneness all around you.

In Catholicism in Rome; they depict the Pineal as a pine cone in art. The ancient societies like the Egyptians and the Romans knew the benefits and exemplified this in their vast symbologies with a symbol of an eye.


Are the Conspiracy Theories Valid?

The following information does fall under the conspiracy theories, but this ‘all-seeing eye’, which is everywhere on the dollar bill and in images of scriptures, led me to believe that many people are doing their research and feel they have to share their findings with as many people as possible for the good of all.

The Pineal Gland when Activated is known to have the ability of an individual (or group of individuals) to use this gland and go to the other side (spiritual world) and possibly control the thoughts and actions of people in the physical world. People high up in power would not like it when the general population on our planet would suddenly awaken to their God-Given talents of telepathy, clairvoyance and many other Soul qualities.

A Pineal Gland once tuned into proper frequencies with the help of meditation, yoga or various esoteric, occult methods, and intense creativity enables a person to travel into other dimensions, popularly known as astral travel, astral projection or remote viewing.

Instead, they have found many ways to suppress this awakening from happening.


I Would like to Finish This Article with This Quote:

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

  • Are there any Parallel Worlds & Realities?
    In this 3rd dimensional realm – Planet Earth – people live in a ‘world’ that is based on the preconceived belief that they exist on just one solid timeline rather than on multi-dimensional levels.
  • What is a Group Soul?
    Soul groups are formed by a group of individuals who seem to regularly incarnate at the same time. Each has the same ultimate goal or soul-purpose, set out as a self-expression of ALL THAT IS.

HI Nadine, the Sumerians were depicted holding what we refer to today as a pine cone like object. Thanks for your article

Anvarali on March 11, 2019:

Very true

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on February 09, 2016:

Hi Sandy yes we all have a different perception around this topic. Therefore we all have to make up our own minds on what we believe.

Sandy Mertens from Frozen Tundra on February 08, 2016:

Love how you ended this with the quote. We all have to make up our own minds on what we believe.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on August 06, 2015:

Mmm yes that is a way to look at it. Thanks Clive.

I thought I already replied to this comment?

nagmalbaher on April 16, 2015:

I am delighted that YOUR thoughts is matching Islamic teachings . Allah acceptes repentance from all people. So bad souls can repent at any time of their life. They don`t have to do anything more than repentance. Moreover, Allah can also convert bad deeds into good deeds .THEREFOR , bad souls can convert their entire dark life into a white one by repenting to Almighty Allah

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on April 16, 2015:

Thanks for your nice comment on my article. I would like to think that bad souls will have the opportunity to reinvent themselves, unless souls are completely be removed from....the field?

nagmalbaher on April 14, 2015:

Good that we agreed on some points. But I tend to believe more in Soul as has been described in the Noble Quran. Souls do exist. You can not see souls with naked eye. Souls never die but our bodies die as soon as souls are leaving them. Souls do communicate with each other. Also there are bad and good souls ..........etc

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on April 14, 2015:

Wow you almost wrote an article as a reply. I like the following: Souls do not have gender. Human beings gain their personalities both from their spirits and bodies. A soul entering a body tries to adapt to the physical characteristics of the body which determine the gender.

My personal perceptions are that any kind of "belief" especially religious dogma are traps to keep us thinking that we are humans with physical,emotional and mental limitations. We are spiritual consciousness having a human experience.

nagmalbaher on April 13, 2015:

Were all souls created at the same time or at different times? Do souls have genders?

The Answer:

1- It is understood that the creation of souls was before the creation of bodies. We are on a journey starting from the world of souls and continuing through our mothers’ wombs, then childhood, youth, agedness, graveyard, purgatory (waiting place between Hell and Heaven), and finally ending in Hell or Heaven. The beginning of the journey is the world of souls. In this sense, the creation of souls was before the creation of bodies.

As a matter of fact, our Prophet (pbuh) said: “Souls are like crowds which gather together. The ones who met before get on well. The ones, who did not meet before, cannot get on very well and separate.” (Bukhari, Anbiya, 2; Muslim, Birr, 159; Abu Dawud, Adab, 19). That hadith states that people met somewhere before they came to world. Clearly, as it cannot have happened in mothers’ wombs, it means they existed before and were created before they came into mothers’ wombs.

While interpreting that hadith, Azimabadi expresses what is meant with “souls meet each other before they get into their bodies” is that souls were created before bodies. (Azimabadi, Awnu’l Mabud, XIII, 124).

There is another point about the issue. When the agreement which we call “Qalu Bala (lit. they said yes)” and in which souls promised Allah to obey Him, happened. When Allah asked souls “Am I not your Lord?”, the souls answered “Yes, You are our Lord”. So, when did it happen? Scholars’ views on it are as follows in summary:

Some Interpreters of the Quran stated that it was a divine guidance via “simile” and “metaphor”. They said: “It is a figure of speech. The fact that people were created with capability of recognizing Allah’s godhood is somehow likened to their promise.”

On the other hand, the majority of the Quran Interpreters adopted the view that both Allah’s address to souls and their answer are not symbolic, but true. A contemporary Quran Interpreter named Mehmed Vehbi puts this view into words as follows: “Although there exists the possibility that they answered by gesturing, as they were not yet given minds and lives, it is better to say that they were given minds, lives and tongues and shown evidence of His Godhood and Lordship… They comprehended the question with their minds and answered with their tongues verbally.”

2- There is no young or old soul. These are physical characteristics.

3- Souls do not have gender. Human beings gain their personalities both from their spirits and bodies. A soul entering a body tries to adapt to the physical characteristics of the body which determine the gender.

Of course, there is a relation between the soul and the personality. However, extrinsic factors play an important role on the formation of personal characteristics. Especially, the formation of moral qualities is largely dependant on people’s free will. Otherwise, having high moral qualities or low moral qualities would be meaningless. Although it is impossible to eliminate inborn characteristics, it is possible to direct them to goodness with one’s free will. For instance, a person who is naturally aggressive cannot be expected to quit that trait and be calmer. However, it is possible for him to direct his aggressiveness towards a good reason, for instance, towards his own lower-self and Satan

This is so fascinating and being a follower and teacher for Christ I do believe that he taught us these things. Very wise words from the Buddha.

Voted up and will share this as well and add this to my hub about the Silver cord.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on January 27, 2015:

Thanks for your comments and I loved your input about soul consciousness. When our holographic reality is shifting, people are awakening and start to ask questions about truth. Yes it is possible to see a conspiracy in a situation where there is none, but money is not always the only source of corruption. It is always about gaining control and power over the masses through any means, but the more we awaken to a new reality the less power they have over us.

Buildreps from Europe on January 27, 2015:

Interesting article, Nadine. Where the soul resides might be an arbitrary question, since the physical body is in its entirety an expression of the soul consciousness. In deep meditation it appears to me to reside around the heart chakra - the middle chakra between the 3 earthly lower and 3 etheric higher chakra's. According to some the heart chakra is the 'Zero-point'. The ontological Zero is the ultimate expression of the Soul.

Regarding conspiracy theories. There are many people who start to see them everywhere, and they show a kind of 'overshoot' in seeing conspiracies everywhere. There is just one major conspiracy - capitalism. Capitalism is the root of big deals behind closed doors. And they are definitely there, these big secret deals that lead to other excesses like small and big conspiracies. I can testify to this.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on January 27, 2015:

Wow when I read your comment I first Googled what this movie was all about. - Obsessive scientist Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel) successfully discovers a way to access a parallel universe of pleasure by tapping into the brain's pineal gland. Never seen it but Its very incidental that I'm at this moment writing a chapter for my novel: Parallel Worlds! My novel does NOT fall under the Horror genre.

poetryman6969 on January 26, 2015:

There was an interesting movie that embodied some of these concepts. I think it was called: From Beyond.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on September 06, 2014:

Thanks for your comment ...very imaginative... that is the idea. Awakening for me means to question things, especially of a spiritual nature.

C E Clark from North Texas on September 03, 2014:

Interesting thoughts you have. Being a Christian I find them very imaginative.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on July 02, 2014:

Never stop caring George

george on July 02, 2014:

yes it makes you care less abt things

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on February 04, 2014:

Gosh thank you for your comments. I love meeting like minded writers on the internet. I only now spotted the /my/hub/comments page. Sorry about that .

Harish Mamgain from New Delhi , India on January 20, 2014:

To find a free spirit is very rare, Nadine May. Whatever this hub says makes sense and the conclusion with the words of Buddha is remarkable. Since Buddha means enlightened,the whole purpose of our existence is to become enlightened. You have elaborated on the subtle aspects of our existence so beautifully. Thank you very much.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on December 06, 2013:

Thank you for your comment Richard. I will look out for your hubs. I'm still rather new on Hubs and I can already see that I need to put more time aside for reading and replying, but I will do it with pleasure.

Richard Mawby from United Kingdom on December 03, 2013:

This is an amazing hub... I can relate to pretty much everything you talk about here as I too have similar ideas and visions on spirituality and I am on the path to complete awakening.

I have always been a creative mind, day dreamer and not following the norms since I was a child and I have come to believe my soul is a very old and wise one that is taking me on a path of knowledge and discovery beyond everything we know and perceive as our current reality.

This article expresses alot of what I believe and I enjoyed reading it. I will vote this up and follow your hubs :D

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on November 22, 2013:

Thank you for your comments. I have no Catholic background, so your information was interesting. Personally I'm not drawn to any kind of religious group,church or organization, but Ive learned a great deal from reading scriptures of several religions. I came to a conclusion that they all teach a kind of similar concept but with deviations. Not one of them knows the whole truth, but I recognized that following any religion gives structure to peoples lives. I personally like what the Buddhists doctrine preach, but again I do not belong to any group. My articles might come across as being of a New Age genre, but again I do not follow that either. I'm a FREE SPIRIT having a human experience.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on November 22, 2013:

I love doing that - house restorations I mean. It's a hobby of mine, together with gardening,landscaping and oil painting! I should create a before and after hub with all the photos - but its such a different genre, I'm not sure if that is wise? What do you think?

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on November 21, 2013:

You've written an excellent article, unfortunately the fostered belief that the spirit-form enters through the gland at 5 years of age gives those with evil design a good excuse for these children's lives to be considered expendable in a moral sense through abortion including late-term and when they are at the precious ages up until five. In actuality God, or Creation, if one prefers, would never be so negligent. The "soul" indeed enters through the Pineal gland but at its formation at about two to three weeks, not five years of "hanging around a child"- IMHO of course.

Audrey Howitt from California on November 21, 2013:

Very interesting hub---I enjoyed reading it.

Rosemary Amrhein on November 21, 2013:

According to the catholic church we have a soul at the moment of conception, and if the baby gets aborted, the soul goes to a placed called limbo, if the baby is baptized however it will go to heaven directly . The little children before the age of reason, who haven't sinned go to heaven directly. But it is after a person is past the age of reason, they are accountable for their sins. Hence prayer, confession, repentance etc. And the catholic church has seven sacraments, baptism, penance/reconciliation/confession, first communion, confirmation, holy orders (priest), matrimony, anointing of the sick, so by the time a catholic is receiving confirmation around 12 , they have received four of the sacraments already. Some of the sacraments can only be received once such as matrimony (unless one dies and they get another spouse after being a widow, widower), Holy Orders (can only become a priest once- once a priest always a priest, and usually anointing of the sick is done on a person's deathbed before they pass, to help give them extra graces before death, but it can be done more than once ...and Baptism, also confirmation is only once as well. Confirmation is when the holy spirit guides the soul which is similar to when the apostles received the holy spirit after Christ went to heaven, he sent the "comforter" which is the holy spirit which guides us.

Also the holy spirit is one of the three Divine Persons in God. The father, son, and holy spirit.

But the sacraments to be received frequently, should be that is, are holy communion (as often as daily) during the Mass; penance (recommended once a week actually or at least once a month),

Also (sorry for rambling on,) going/attending Holy Mass, you receive many graces each time you go.

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 21, 2013:

You certainly are an intelligent person I can see. I will mark this and come back to read again and some of your others. Am into some house restorations now and not a lot of online time. haring this with friends. ^

Reynold Jay from Saginaw, Michigan on October 10, 2013:

I'm looking for your books on Amazon and did not find it. There were similar books by other people. You could add some direct links to your books in all your articles; that would help? I see you are in Africa. Many of the settings in my novels are in Somalia. RJ

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on October 04, 2013:

Question: Do you believe your soul existed before you were born? Or did it enter your body as you were developing as a fetus – or perhaps the moment you entered into the world?

Are the spirit and the soul the same thing?
