Personally I think your soul contains and boarders your own personal, magical kingdom, where any ideal thing and any ideal body you want goes. I also think the soul is able to fatherly/motherly mind with a mind inner itself aswell as outter itself, since currently here on earth within you is your very own kingdom. I think we on earth are minding outside of our soul, to gather great ideas of what in all we could ever want in our own magical kingdoms we will be returning back within some day. So one ingredient I think is commandable magic within the soul.

I would think the soul inhabits the entire body and not just the brain.
The brain does not know the stomach is empty until the stomach sends that signal to the brain. If the soul was only in the brain then the rest of the body is what ? Uninhabited ? Empty ?
Plato, drawing on the words of his teacher Socrates, considered the soul the essence of a person, being that which decides how we behave. He considered this essence to be an incorporeal, eternal occupant of our being. As bodies die the soul is continually reborn in subsequent bodies. The Platonic soul comprises three parts:
- the logos, or logistikon (mind, nous, or reason)
- the thymos, or thumetikon (emotion, or spiritedness, or masculine)
- the eros, or epithumetikon (appetitive, or desire, or feminine)
Each of these has a function in a balanced, level and peaceful soul.
The ancient Egyptians believed that a human soul was made up of five parts: the Ren, the Ba, the Ka, the Sheut, and the Ib. In addition to these components of the soul there was the human body (called the ha, occasionally a plural haw, meaning approximately sum of bodily parts). The other souls were aakhu, khaibut, and khat. en.wikipedia.org...
