The five types of souls in Kabbalah: Yechidah, Chaiah, Neshemah, Ruach, and Nephesh.

"In your patience possess ye your souls." - Luke 21: 19

  1. Yehidah יחידה, the Universal Soul, Ain Soph, KetherChokmah and Binah in Atziluth
  2. Chaiah חיה, the Soul World, the soul of Jah-Havah Elohim Binah in Briah
  3. Neshamah נשמה, the Spiritual Soul, Buddhi, Geburah, in Briah and Yetzirah
  4. Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים, the Soul of Elohim, Chesed, our Innermost, Atman, in Briah
  5. Nephesh נפש, the Animal Soul, Assiah, Yesod and Malkuth

These five types of souls, Yehidah, Chaiah, Neshamah, Ruach and Nephesh are the five types of Consciousness, or better said, cognizance (from Latin cognoscere, the range of what our Consciousness can know or understand). These souls relate to the seven cosmoses, and the Sephiroth of the Tree of Life.
