Everything that exists on the physical plane has its subtle etheric double, or etheric body. The human etheric body is a vibrating web of energy from which our energy template is created. Vibrating at a slightly higher frequency than the physical plane, it is usually invisible, but is equally important to our well-being.
In fact, this template shapes our physical body at the cellular and molecular level. Its strength and vitality can be undermined as a result of blows, injuries or medication, as well as unresolved issues descending from other subtle bodies. The etheric body is associated with the root chakra.
The emotional body is the layer of energy behind the etheric body and is unique to each person. It contains all our emotions and feelings, including those created by unresolved issues from other lives. Emotional memories and patterns that are stored in our emotional body trigger our emotional responses to events in our life. The emotional functions of the body outside of the three-dimensional reality have no signs of time and limitation period. That is why sometimes a person's emotional reaction to a particular situation may seem completely out of proportion to what is happening at the moment in their life. The reaction actually comes from a previous unresolved trauma. These emotional reactions are brought into embodiment by the soul and mental bodies for their resolution. The emotional body is associated with the sacral chakra. Emotional energy is very powerful as it is what gives strength to our thoughts and intentions.
Lower mental body
The lower mental body receives, stores and transmits all of our thought structures and mental processes. It is associated with the solar plexus chakra. As energy, our thoughts extend beyond the mental body and create our reality, so it is important to choose the thoughts that we allow to live in our minds. When we associate thoughts with the power of emotions, we become Creators, so it is important to be in control of what we choose, consciously or unconsciously.
Higher mental body
The higher mental body is a layer of energy associated with the heart chakra, it is a bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds. When we keep the heart chakra open we receive light, information and inspiration from our soul through the higher mental body. This layer of energy acts as a filter for past life information and karmic patterns to enter consciousness.
The causal body is the layer of energy behind the higher mental body and is associated with the throat chakra and the causal chakra at the back of the head. This is the door to higher consciousness and the connection of the individual with the collective consciousness of the planet. The causal body can be seen energetically as seven concentric circles of rainbow light that contain everything that is real and permanent in us. These shimmering spheres of light reflect the soul's unique spiritual accomplishments. The gifts and talents that you have achieved in previous lives are sealed into your causal body and become available to you through your soul when you are ready to use them.
This organ contains the essence of your Spirit - the part of you that is from God. Inspiration and spiritual visions descend to the soul to be grounded in the Now through the lower chakras, which allows us to manifest the divine will or will of our spirit. The Soul Body is associated with the third eye chakra.
Integrated Spiritual Body
At this level, there is a merger of all aspects of all subtle bodies, as well as the essence of the physical. Thus, this body contains all the integrated spiritual principles with which one can work. An integrated spirit body is associated with the crown chakra.
Star of earth
This center of subtle energy is located about 9 inches (23 cm) under the feet, right in line with the base chakra and the Hara center. The Earth Star is an important center of energy because it is our point of alignment with the Earth's magnetic grid and ensures that we are able to effectively ground and focus energy. Being properly grounded through the Earth Star is essential for us to fully connect with our multidimensional selves, the ascended realms and other star systems.
Hara is a subtle energy center located in the aura field just below the navel. This is not the same as the sacral chakra. When the Hara center is working properly, it brings awareness of the need to follow God's will, contributing to a sense of true purpose and completeness, as well as a greater sense of focus in the physical body. The Hara center resonates with the spleen chakra.
It is an important center of subtle energy that stimulates the development of unconditional love and compassion. All ancient spiritually minded civilizations had this center fully functioning and recognized its true purpose as the "High Heart" chakra. In our unfolding spiritual development, this center is extremely important.
It is a subtle energy center located above the crown chakra and above the higher chakras. When activated, it aligns with the soul, all "higher" energies, star systems and the Universe, which allows more soul energy, light, guidance and healing to come and penetrate into the personality.
