The Seven Bodies
1. Physical Body:
The physical body is the anchoring point for your Higher Self to explore the mystery of your being within physicality. It is highly susceptible to programming transmitted through touch for several minutes after birth. It holds the memories of this and other lives.
The Seven Bodies
2. Etheric or Astral Body:
The majority of karma, which is a constriction in the universal flow of energy formed by incorrect perception, is held in the astral body (only a small portion is in the physical body). It consists of bluish lines of light. It produces the acupuncture points and the major and minor chakras by the energy lines crossing each other. Where they cross seven times, there is an acupuncture point. Where they cross 13 times, there is a minor chakra point. Where they cross 20 times, there is a major chakra point. This body is linear and is located an inch out from the physical body.
3. Emotional Body:
It is the auric field. Past trauma is held in the first three bodies (the physical, astral and emotional bodies). Therefore, as we overcome our past and balance our sub-personalities, this body becomes clearer. It is a flowing field extending out about 14 inches from the physical body.
4. Mental Body:
As we balance the three minds, including the left and right brains, the mental body ceases to block access to the higher bodies. This body is linear and is located about 14 inches out from the physical body.
5. Spiritual Emotional Body:
When able to access this body, we begin living in eternal time, which aligns us with the intent of the Infinite. This body is a flowing field that extends about 19 inches out from the physical body
6. Spiritual Mental Body:
The information within this body contains the specifics regarding the blueprint for this lifetime. When access to this body is achieved, we start seeing from a cosmic perspective. We begin to see the innocence and value of each life as it mirrors to the Infinite either that which it is, or that which it is not. We see that there is no guilt so all judgment effortlessly dissolves. This body is linear and is located about 19 inches out from the physical body.
7. Spirit Body:
It is trillions of little fibers of light radiating out in all directions from the life force center. This is a ball of white light about the size of a grapefruit. In May 2007 it was moved from behind the belly button to the heart center in all humanity. Every living creature within the cosmos has a band of awareness among these light fibers within our spirit body. That is why we are the microcosm. This is the body shamans use to be able to shapeshift into animals or other forms; plus they use this body to access parallel realities. They move a point of illumination called the assemblage point. It is located an arm’s length behind the heart, and a little bit to the right. This body is a linear field radiating out from the center to an arm’s length from the physical body.
The Law of Attraction ~ Say what you WANT, not what you don’t want…
we were learning about the neuroendocrine system in pysch and there was a picture up that correlated exactly with the chakra system and ive been looking into a little bit on my own and im just so fascinated
life is way too short to be bored and sad!! get up off ur bum and try something new! don’t get too comfortable, stay at the edge or outside of your comfort zone. talk to a stranger, cook dinner for your mom, pay for the guy behind you in the starbucks line, pick up a ukelele and watch a youtube video on how to play. there are endless things to do, things to learn, people to meet, things to smile at. go out and do something!
For all of you who practice Reiki, regardless of which level, I’d like you to get involved with me on my mission to “fill the Reiki pot”. Inspired by my good friend and fellow complementary therapist Jools Bell, the idea is to send the Reiki life force energy to an imagined “pot” which can be accessible at all times and to anyone! This is a great way for us all to practice our skills in sending Reiki (no symbols are necessarily needed) and to give something for those who need it when they are going through rough patches.
Before you start sending the energy, use the powers of visualisation to create a beautiful golden pot, connected to all beings and open for all to enter when they choose. Then imagine that, instead of sending the Reiki through your hands and into your self or another person, the energy is going straight into the pot!
If you don’t practice Reiki yourself but feel that you are in need of some rejuvenation or support then all you need to do is close your eyes and focus on taking a little bit of that Reiki energy from the pot, giving love and gratitude in return. You can do this on the bus to work, in the bath or even on the loo!
I’m going to be doing this every Monday evening at around 6pm for a total of 30-60 minutes. If we all can come together and connect at that time and fill up our Reiki pot together it could be a really magical way of coming together, developing our skills and offering some healing light to those who need it.

The Week Ahead, September 24 - 30, 2012 ~
THE PLUTO-URANUS THEMES of transformation, revelation, restlessness and rebellion are likely to be highlighted in many ways this week. Since the New Moon on September 15, certain issues have been growing in our awareness. Now, with a powerful Full Moon on the calendar for next Saturday, we may be ready to make those life-changing decisions — or, at the very least, open to a greater awareness of what needs to change — that will accelerate our forward motion.
The effects of this Full Moon will be strongest next weekend, but we will be working with its themes throughout the week as the lunar cycle builds, and as other planets interact with the force field that has been set up by the Pluto-Uranus square.
A MARS-VENUS SQUARE is exact on Thursday, but both planets interact with Pluto and Uranus starting on Monday. This means the dance between masculine and feminine archetypes and traits is centerstage throughout the week. This is our opportunity to see our conflicting internal needs more clearly, and also to observe how those conflicts are reflected externally in our relationships with others.
With Mars in Scorpio pushing against Uranus on Monday and Pluto on Tuesday, we may be feeling especially restless and resistant to being told what to do. We can feel the pressure of others’ unspoken needs, especially if we sense any attempts at manipulation. We remember “all those times” we gave away our power, and are bound and determined not to do THAT again.
With Mars so busy energetically, we may find it very difficult to hold in our reactions this week. This will be especially true if we feel someone is trying to control us. At the same time, we must also watch our own tendencies to manipulate others to get them to do what we want, instead of having the courage to state our needs directly.
BEGINNING ON TUESDAY, Venus in Leo is also engaged with Pluto and Uranus. Venus is representing a very different part of us — the part that longs to feel special and loved, to be appreciated, and to belong. This is the part that enjoys the first stages of relationship, when all of life’s colors seem particularly vibrant, and there are no questions about the other’s adoration.
This week, that part may feel very impatient with relationships that do not meet the ongoing needs for feeling seen, honored and accepted. Instead of seeing the colors of life enhanced, we may be complaining about all the ways we no longer feel fulfilled by how things are going.
BY THE TIME we get to the actual Mars-Venus square on Thursday, we may have much of the buildup in tension behind us. As a result, we may be able to see more clearly what changes may be needed to make our relationships — and our lives in general — more satisfying.
What we are really trying to do is find what is at the heart of dissatisfaction we may be experiencing. Mars in Scorpio represents the part of us that wants intimacy, honesty, and depth. Venus in Leo represents the part of us that wants the joy of self-expression, playfulness, and creativity.
Both of these needs are legitimate, and as we work with this square, each of us will need to come to terms with where there is imbalance in our life experience. And, Uranus and Pluto will help us let go of the old ways and create the new, as needed.
THE HIGHLIGHT of the week, energetically speaking, is the Full Moon, exact on Saturday evening in the Pacific Time zone. This is a powerful lunation because the Moon is within a degree of being conjunct Uranus and square Pluto. In other words, the Full Moon carries with it the full energies of the Pluto-Uranus square that was exact last week.
For those who have been needing that extra boost of motivation or courage before taking action, this Full Moon supplies plenty! And, if we’ve been waiting for life to show us the next road to take, this Full Moon may also give us some clear indicators — both of what needs to be left behind or released, and of what forward steps will be most enlivening and fulfilling. - Pam Younghans/NorthPoint Astrology Journal
Alter Your Karmic Cycle.
We are slaves of habit. Besides well-ingrained physical habits, we also have deep-rooted mental ones – our attitudes, perceptions and beliefs that involuntarily guide our unique behavior. Our conditioned mental patterns are like our subconscious blueprint and manifest in our life repeatedly. As a result, we are prone to, and despite efforts usually find it hard to shake off, anger, fear, aggression, anxiety, envy or low self-esteem.
The notion of our deep-seated mental beliefs can be better understood by becoming familiar with the concept of karma. It is invaluable to grasp this concept to understand the inner mechanics of our thoughts and actions. Only by choosing to deal with our individualkarma, can we work on creating a new reality for ourselves.
Karma is the notion of a cyclical process where our every action or intention leads to lasting impressions on our psyche, and these impressions in turn impact our future behavior — comprising fresh intentions and actions — leading to new lasting impressions being formed. Our actions are called karma and the latent impressions they create are termed samskaras.
According to the law of karma, all our experiences in the present are dictated by our cumulative stored samskaras of past actions and reactions. This cyclical process ofkarma explains why we repeatedly attract similar situations that create conditions for the stored samskaras to manifest, leading to similar karma being created.
Anger leads to creation of unhappiness, frustration and anger in our emotional psyche. These stored unresolved emotions, our samskaras, eventually lead to generation of anger at the slightest provocation in the future. And, the cycle continues.
Unless we consciously choose to deal with our individual karma, it recurs in our life with great alacrity, and unless resolved, restricts us from experiencing real freedom and happiness.
The question is what good is our material progress if we remain ill equipped to reforming our inner being; what’s the merit in our climbing the social, career or financial ladder if we cannot overcome our mental fragility? In the midst of our reckless pursuit of modern life, what’s our real purpose?
The purpose of human life is to work through our personal karma and experience innate happiness, peace and joy in our state of being. The gifted ability to make that conscious choice is what makes the human life so precious compared to other life forms. The only way to create a new reality, of loving relationships, mental peace, inner happiness, deeper fulfillment, and abundance, in your life is to alter this karmic cycle. That’s the path to experience a new reality.
This journey entails learning to be a witness to our own mental and emotional patterns –our dominant beliefs and our recurring and conditioned responses. What makes you angry or fearful or anxious and how often? What beliefs do you have that make you feel that way?
Further, it requires taking personal responsibility of your situation – rather than blame your circumstances, partner or colleague, this is about focusing your attention towards your own conditioned thoughts, beliefs and actions.
Learning to live in the present, where we can consciously bring our subconscious patterns into our active awareness and make fresh choices in how we deal with a given situation helps us move forward. As we make new positive choices, we start to neutralise the hold the old samskaras have on our psyche. The more we stay in the present, the more we can redirect the future and the more empowered we become to experience inner peace and joy. ~ ॐ ~
This is a great article i stumbled on who is also talking about the changing new energies going into our system and how the latest shift is impacting us. Always a good find when you see another person resonating with the same feelings you’ve been getting lately. Enjoy :)
Energy Symptoms: Our Body’s Response to Vibrational Change
By Stacy Vajta
There was a vibrational shift that happened over the past few days that, well, clobbered me. I haven’t felt thrown off energetically, in this way, in a long time. But “energy symptoms” are common as we raise our vibration and expand into new energies that our physical bodies must learn to hold.
Several years ago, as I was really in the throes of vibrational change, I spent quite a bit of time feeling these energy symptoms. It was an everyday occurrence to feel “off.”Headaches, nausea, dizziness, sinus pressure/squeezing, irritability, tears and theneed for sleep (lots of sleep) were common for me.
But I knew that this was not solely physical, but energetic; as my body was working overtime to release energy that could no longer support my spiritual evolution, and at the same time integrate all the new energy I was aware of. It felt like a full time job, all this energy processing.
And then came summer solstice of 2011, when this all shifted for me. Blissful body regulation…ahh!
I’m not sure why, but it felt like I had crossed over a threshold and moved myself into a new state of being. There was less fighting internally to all this change, more ease and flow in all areas of my life, and my body felt a whole lot better.
Since then I’ve had moments of these energy symptoms, particularly with solar flares, yet they are much more manageable. But this weekend I found myself camped out on my couch wanting sleep, a little head achy, and so full of energy that I’d catch myself sighing deeply every few minutes, to offer myself some energetic release.
So what’s going on? Another shift.
The past few months have felt to me like a time for preparing. I’ve been talking with people about creating solid foundations (energetically) to be able and ready to manage bigger changes coming our way. And I think the energy ushering in those changes has arrived!
Here we are, about half-way through 2012, and the energy is building. And right now we’re in an energetic shift that is once again re-arranging our physical structure to hold this higher vibration.
When I look at the energy right now I see a much faster energy signaling a vibration moving into our systems that creates an energetic upgrade.
The vibration of the energy speeds up and injects us, so to speak, with new vibrational information. Think of it like a big energetic crescendo before our next big “aha!” And right now there’s a quickening of the energy, and our lower chakras are getting a workout as we process this energy — both consciously and unconsciously and ground it into our physical bodies.
This new or latest wave of energy shifts us into more connectivity…with ourselves (our Higher Selves), with each other and with the greater energy at large. This connectivity is good, but we’re being re-wired to contain a vibration that is so different than what we know, that both our emotional and biological systems are reacting.
What our Spirit says “Yes!” to, our physical body often embraces with a rousing, “Maybe!” and our biology responds with an emphatic “No!” to change.
Our deeper biological system goes into fight or flight with these vibrational shifts. And that can be why some of this vibrational change can be so hard to fully integrate and process. We have to talk to our body at the biological level to get our body consciousness on board.
This latest shift is just another deepening into our spiritual evolution. And because we aren’t making this change in the spiritual realms alone — but also here in our bodies and in this reality — it’s important to spend time focused on your body in these moments of energetic re-arranging. And right now, you may want to especially pay attention to the lower chakras as we each ground our own energy into ourselves and the earth more deeply.
So what to do?
1. When you notice these weird physical issues, and you have ruled out actual physical problems, begin to tune-in at the energetic level and see what is goingon.
Sometimes simply recognizing that what you are working with has an energetic component, gives you new tools to work with. You can turn your radar to this level and begin to focus your awareness where it needs it the most to allow a shift.
2. Take a look at your biology, or what I envision within as the brain of the brain!
Connect into yourself at the biological level (cells, brain, nervous system, blood, bones, microbial elements etc.) and feel into how willing your biology and all your physical systems are accepting and working with this new energy. Again, sometimes just taking your awareness to this level can give you insight.
3. Be gentle with your process, but doprocess.
We are in a period of accelerated growth, and it needs your attention. Even if you may not feel an energy symptom pointing out that your own energy is changing, take a look within. Be present to what is. Sit in meditation, do your own healing work or get some support.
Right now, I’d suggest doing any grounding exercises you can. Really spend time not only anchoring your energy into the earth, but to seek out energy within the earth to support you. There are grids of energy there that hold the information (energy) to help you work with the vibrational changes we are under-going. Draw that energy into your body and energy system and let it support you.
Also spend time working with (via awareness) your lower chakras. You want to be bringing your fullest energy into that part of your body. Spend time there, as this is trulythe task at hand…embodying all this spiritual information!
4. Allow what the energy is about, to “come in” as you integrate it all.
Sometimes that answer to what this is all about takes some time to move in to our awareness. We often have to let the energy shift and then we get the “aha!” So let your own energy settle, stay present to the experience and allow the inner shift to come; and then the information will indeed drop in or present itself!
These energy symptoms can be a hassle and interrupt our normal activity. And for sensitive people, they can be a particular problem. But if we can stop and recognize what is going on and work with the energy that is creating the inner shift and expand into it, the symptoms can and do ease.
So hang in there with this latest shift. It ‘aint over yet! But what I do know is that we are all OK as we ease into what is new. And please do let me know how you are doing through this latest shifting energy!
The solar plexus energy center
Meditate upon the image, let the light flow into our being through your eyes, all three of them. Do not think or comprehend the shapes, just let it be and exist with it as one. Smile as you feel the power of the unvierse as it lives inside of your very being. ♥ Namaste
This is something I really need to work on. Being aware is the first step, now to dissolve it.
You wander restlessly from forest to forest while the Reality is within your own dwelling. The Truth is here! Until you have found God in your own Soul, the whole world will seem meaningless to you.
It is there, clearly visible and ever changing. Growing, shrinking, moving, maleable with emotion and reaction.
Awareness has stumbled upon a realisation and it opens an unlockable door. Surrendering to the truth, the ultimate knowledge within, the peaceful acceptance of what is.
What is? What “is”? There is one thing for certain:
