Spirit is one of the five flows of the True Source.
Women and Men are equally skilled with spirit.
Spirit is primarily used to affect the mental state of others.
Spirit can be used to affect feelings and passions as well as reduce mental fatigue. However it cannot reduce physical fatigue it can be used to mask the symptoms of the physical fatigue and restore alertness.
A Strong channeler can use spirit to influence others through compulsion to do things against their will.
A shield between someone and the source is also a function of spirit by forming it into a wedge shape and driving it between the other person and their link to the source. As an extension of a shield, it is also possible to sever someone from the source by adding a bit of fire to cauterize the connection as the shield passes through.
