16.6.2 The Spiritual Realm
The physical realm exists parallel to and is inseparable from the spiritual realm, as all things were created in spirit before they were created in physical form. Perhaps it is better explained that the physical world lies on top of the spiritual world. Our spirit and bodies reside in the same place, but in separate realms of existence. The spirit and body are one; they are linked and neither can survive long without the other. There are beings in the spiritual realm that are not attached to bodies in the physical realm. These spirits each have their own intentions, some seeking to help and others to cause great harm. The angelic seraphs also reside in the spiritual realm, assisting those who call on them.
