There can be a lot of confusion about the human energy system, or it is sometimes completely overlooked. However, just as it is essential to understand the brain, organ system, or musculature system to promote health and wellbeing, so too must we be able to grasp our energetic inner workings.
The Physical Plane - The Etheric Body
The etheric body is a vessel that carries us through and interacts with our life experiences. This is the plane that we associate with our humanity and personhood. The Etheric Body is both influenced and influences the Astral and Causal bodies or the Emotional and Mental Body, respectively.
The Etheric Body's principal components are the nadis, chakras, and the aura.
The Nadis - The pulse, blood vessel, or pipe in Sanskrit, nadir carry vital life force energy to the chakras, like an electric plug or cord. There are 3 primary nadis; unblocking them and achieving perfect energy flow contribute to liberty and ascension.
The Chakras - Wheel or disk in Sanskrit, a chakra is an energy center that is both fed and feeds the nadir, keeping Prana flowing through the Etheric Body, like the motor of an electric car, it charges its own battery, but also needs to be plugged in for an added boost.
The Aura - The residual energy that the Etheric Body casts off creates an electromagnetic field that is the first auric layer. This layer only extends about an inch or two from the physical body.
The Emotional Plane - The Astral Body
As discussed, the emotional plane is both influenced and influences the mental and physical planes. It is why stress causes tension headaches and indigestion, or depression and anxiety change the chemistry of our brains. Dis-ease across one energetic Body can cause contagion across all three! This is why wholistic healing is integral.
The Astral Body's principal components are the chakras and the aura.
The Chakras - In the Etheric Body, the chakras facilitate our corporeal experience. In the Astral Body, the chakras facilitate our emotional experience. 7 primary Astral chakras keep our emotional energy flowing and balanced. The healthy flow of these energy centers allows us to process and fully experience our emotions.
The Aura - The Astral aura extends 12-24 inches beyond the body. It is the energy field people refer to when discussing reading, shielding, and strengthening the aura. It is our protective and personal energy field. the aura is a source of energy for your chakras yet is also fed by the chakras' frequencies.
The Mental Plane - The Causal Body
The Causal Body or Mental Plane is further divided into the Mental Sub-Plane and the Causal Sub-Plane. One could define the distinction as cognitive function vs. higher consciousness. It is also differentiated by what the sub-planes generate. The Mental Body's output is tangible or quantifiable, like a heart rate or an I.Q. test. whereas the Causal body's output is intangible or metaphysical.
Again, the Mental Plane is both influenced and influences the Physical and Emotional Planes. This is why anxiety can cause palpitations or thinking of a departed loved once can make us feel sad.
Cells & Structures - Orchestrating the delicate balance between bodily systems, this level of functioning is what informs our cardiovascular system, circadian rhythms, metabolism and more. It is also how a cell knows it is a part of the earlobe and not grey matter or a fingertip.
Concrete Intellect - Responsible for your higher-cognitive functioning such as memory, problem-solving, concentration, and conceptualization. It is the part of the brain that follows a recipe, performs algebra, and conceives innovative business ideas and artistic concepts for creative explorations.
Higher Mind - Like the concrete intellect, the Higher Mind is the source of conceptualization and creativity, but to the nth degree! It is where great ideas are formed. Prolific thinkers like Leonardo DiVinci, Marie Curie, and Einstein spend their lifetimes uncovering the gems of the Higher Mind.
Karmic Load - We generate karma for every thought, word, and act. In rudimentary terms, the good we create and the healing we achieve are credit. Whereas the harm we cause or stagnation we allow are debt. Their sum is our karmic load. Karmic load is why we are accountable for balancing from previous lifetimes.
By accessing and healing karmic debt, we can clear the energy in the Astral and Etheric Bodies, fostering wellbeing and furthering ascension. Keep in mind we are not canceling the karmic load. By accessing it through QHHT, for instance, we learn from it and evolve beyond it. It is my understanding, from the teachings of Dolores Cannon, that the current generation and subsequent generations are given opportunity to erase it for ascension purposes to New Earth.
Belief Systems - the beliefs formed on the Causal Sub Plane permeate our Causal, Astral, and Etheric bodies. They are the cumulation of our experiences and affect what experiences we seek moving forward. When left in unawareness, they can create toxic patterns that perpetuate victimhood, abusive tendencies, and addiction. This is due to attracting and manifesting circumstances that sustain the ego-based self-image for better or for worse.
For example, if we believe we are sickly, unintelligent, or emotionally damaged, we will manifest people and events that perpetuate this belief. It's essential to recognize that these beliefs can be planted by a parent, teacher, spouse, etc. They don't have to begin with us to grow roots. Of course, we are free to pluck these weeds whenever we are ready.
Soul Light - The soul cannot be found in the Etheric, Astral Bodies, or Mental Sub-Plane of the Causal Body. It can be accessed through the Causal Sub-Plane. As such, we maintain some level of autonomy from the soul. The Soul Light is the light of the eternal soul or psyche and, in turn, carries a level of sovereignty from us.
The soul is an infinite entity, existing throughout all of our lifetimes, meaning we have much to learn from it. Interestingly, the soul also evolves based on the life experiences we seek and navigate, carrying the wisdom into the next lifetime.
We could think of it as a hard drive that connects to a computer. The computer can download from the drive, and the drive can upload from the computer. Yet, both maintain individuality, and the hard drive can be carried from device to device or lifetime to lifetime.
"The soul is not ruled by time or space. It is infinite..." And yet, you have the power to shape it. Wield this power with the total awareness of who you are on every plane, in every Body.
In love and truth,
