Neshamah


Neshamah (Hebrew NShMH, "soul") in Kabbalistic tradition is one of the higher aspects of the human soul corresponding to the third Sephirah Binah. Neshamah called supernal understanding is joined by chiah and yechidah, the other two parts of the soul, that remains above the Abyss comprising Higher Genius. In some sources these three higher aspects of self are referred to collectively as neshamah. A.G.H.
