What is the Holy Spirit?

Hebrew ruah, Greek pneuma)

Use your breath in and breath out!
Breath is life, and life is breath. The breath oxygenates our blood, giving life to our very cells.
Biologically, when we breathe fully and without restriction, our diaphragm expands in a way which massages all of the organs in the body, squeezing and releasing them like sponges.
This bathes our organs in new blood, oxygen and essential fluids, and stimulates the entire body to work more efficiently.
Beyond biology, however, our breath can be thought of as the core energy system which supports everything we do in life.
It is a person, in that it has a personality: it wants, feels and has desires
It has a will
It has emotions
It has desires

And the LORD God formed man †of the edust of the ground, and fbreathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

WE LIVE BECAUSE OF HIS BREATH, it is our life source.

It is when God breathes in us the second time, it is the second birth.
You cannot be a son of God without the Holy Spirit
We are a triune being, like God is a trinity:
We are 3 in one: Body, Soul and Spirit:
We are a Spirit, that lives in a Body and we possess a soul
It gives us the power to refuse the evil and believe the good
It is a feeling: you feel free, you feel lighter, all burdens are removed
You dont care what time it is, all you care about is more of him.
When you are in the spirit, supernatural it translates you from the
earth to heavenly places. Which is why when you are at the altar, or in prayer, you just want to worship. You just want to keep talking to him.
It is a feeling but it is more than a feeling:
Some people scream and some shout, and some dance: It is simply and outward expression of an inward feeling.
The Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit is used interchangeably
The Holy Ghost is a comforter, friend and a guide
 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Paraclete. Transliteration of a Greek word meaning “one who is called to someone’s aid” or “one who advocates another.” Thus the term may be used technically for a lawyer. More generally the word denotes one who acts in another’s behalf as a mediator, an intercessor, or a comforter

Comforter: it comes to settle you, your mind, your feelings and your emotions.
Which is why you should pray in your heavenly language
We are 3 in one: Body, Soul and Spirit:
The Holy Spirit will calm you when you are angry, comfort you when you are sad
We are a Spirit, that lives in a Body and we possess a soul
Jude 20 KJV 1900
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Friend: It comes to be our friend, we can speak to the Holy Ghost, talk to him, in our hearts. When we get up in the morning. WHen
Matthew 28:20 KJV 1900
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
John 16:7 KJV 1900
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
John 14:26 KJV 1900
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
