Is the spirit realy with us or within us?Can you feal spirit?I m interested to know about spirit.
Definition: The Hebrew word ru′ach and the Greek pneu′ma, which are often translated “spirit,” have a number of meanings. All of them refer to that which is invisible to human sight and which gives evidence of force in motion. The Hebrew and Greek words are used with reference to (1) wind, (2) the active life-force in earthly creatures, (3) the impelling force that issues from a person’s figurative heart and that causes him to say and do things in a certain way, (4) inspired utterances originating with an invisible source, (5) spirit persons, and (6) God’s active force, or holy spirit. Is there a spirit part of man that survives the death of the body? Ezek. 18:4: “The soul that is sinning—it itself will die.” (RS, any, KJ, and Dy all render the Hebrew word ne′phesh in this verse as “soul,” thus saying that it is the soul that dies. Some translations that render ne′phesh as “soul” in other passages use the expression “the man” or “the one” in this verse. So, the ne′phesh, the soul, is the person, not an immaterial part of him that survives when his body dies.) (See the main heading “Soul” for further details.) Ps. 146:4: “His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.” (The Hebrew word here translated “spirit” is a derivative of ru′ach. Some translators render it “breath.” When that ru′ach, or active life-force, leaves the body, the person’s thoughts perish; they do not continue in another realm.) Eccl. 3:19-21: “There is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity. All are going to one place. They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust. Who is there knowing the spirit of the sons of mankind, whether it is ascending upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it is descending downward to the earth?” (Because of the inheritance of sin and death from Adam, humans all die and return to the dust, as animals do. But does each human have a spirit that goes on living as an intelligent personality after it ceases to function in the body? No; verse 19 answers that humans and beasts “all have but one spirit.” Based merely on human observation, no one can authoritatively answer the question raised in verse 21 regarding the spirit. But God’s Word answers that there is nothing that humans have as a result of birth that gives them superiority over beasts when they die. However, because of God’s merciful provision through Christ, the prospect of living forever has been opened up to humans who exercise faith, but not to animals. For many of mankind, that will be made possible by resurrection, when active life-force from God will invigorate them again.) Luke 23:46: “Jesus called with a loud voice and said: ‘Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit [Greek, pneu′ma′].’ When he had said this, he expired.” (Notice that Jesus expired. When his spirit went out he was not on his way to heaven. Not until the third day from this was Jesus resurrected from the dead. Then, as Acts 1:3, 9 shows, it was 40 more days before he ascended to heaven. So, what is the meaning of what Jesus said at the time of his death? He was saying that he knew that, when he died, his future life prospects rested entirely with God.
I am glad you want to know about the Holy Spirit!
This is a good question and you deserve the right to know.
The Holy spirit dwells within us, that is why our body is also a temple. Because it is a temple, we are expected to keep it holy!
Is the Holy Spirit for certain people?
The Holy spirit is FOR EVERYONE! Just because someone has it and you still have not felt it, does not mean that you are unholy. It means that you have to open your heart to God more and sincerly ask for the Holy Spirit to live within you!
"Ask and ye shall recieve"
Then how do I recieve the Holy Spirit?
The first step is to be born again! This means asking God for salvation and forgiveness of sins sincerely. Enough at that moment, one can also be baptized with the holy spirit and speak in tongues.
Then as you begin your walk with God allow His love to overshadow as the Holy spirit dwells in you. When you are ready and begin seeking your spiritual gifts, then Holy Spirit will be your guide.
+if you pray sincerely/whole heartedly/humbly to your father in heaven for the gift of the holy spirit and pray for it in the name of his son jesus christ he may just bless you with it, depending on whether he feels your worthy of it or not. you may have to earn it. stop sinning, im not saying that you do, but all of us are born sinners.I feel that god has blessed me with the holy spirit over the last few weeks as I've prayed for it constantly like I've told you to and felt I've earnt it, and I guess I just feel free from depression after suffering for many years and I just feel all fuzzy and warm inside.when my mind is also clear, which its not and I have the holy spirit in me I become psychic!! funmail me if you have any more questions.

Every man has a body, a Soul (which is your person) and the Spirit. The Spirit is actually the Holy Spirit or God. But it is inactive in us. It is born (or starts being active) only when we ask Jesus to come into our lives and commit ourselves to Him.
I don't believe that we have a soul.
above your stomach below your chest
It is within us
