For most of the spiritual work I do, I work closely with more than just the physical body. There are many bodies, but I mostly speak about the physical, etheric, emotional, and mental bodies. I do believe that as we expand and continue our evolution that the other, bigger bodies, will become more prevalent in our work. To keep things as simple as possible I will limit my writing to the above mentioned bodies. In the past 2 blogs I wrote about my visions of the chakras, and here I want to touch more on the different bodies and how they are all working in harmony with the chakras as and expression of Source. Again, I want to reiterate that there are WAY more than the 7 chakras and 3 lower bodies (mentioned above), however, it is easy to get overwhelmed with all of the information, so I want to keep it basic. I will, reluctantly, describe how I see the different bodies, and I say reluctant because I don’t want any person to read this and think it is the only way to see it. It is impossible for all of us to “see” in the same way. Many do, but there are also a lot of people that may view these things differently and that is perfectly fine!
The first and closest body to the physical body is etheric body, or the etheric double as some refer to it. To me this appears as a blue netting that lays directly over the physical body. We use this body to travel to astral levels, etc. This body can be seen (in my eye) interacting closely with the physical chakras as well as a direct connection to all of the other bodies.
The emotional body, for me, always appears fluffy and pink, like cotton candy. This body, by far, is the one that I see the most when I am looking at people. Many empaths work and function through this body. On a side note, I do think everyone is empathic, they just do not understand it yet. When I view this body it is often puffed out and very large, it flows and interacts with everything around it like a giant pink cloud. As an example, as I sit here and type this, my S.O. (who functions a great deal through this body) is playing a game using her physical body, but her emotional body is all over me, our child, and our animals. She is constantly feeling with this body, and I often wonder if this is why she is so tired all of the time 🙂 This is really not abnormal, as I have said earlier that most people function a great deal through this body living and breathing on pure emotion.
The next is the mental body. It always appears to me as yellow but it is not like the cloud shape of the emotional body. It has sharper, more defined edges and travels in lines verses the puffy all encompassing aspects of the emotional body. The mental body I can often see penetrating the emotional body. In my vision, it is, where thoughtforms are created, and those thoughtforms will then often move into the emotional body for interaction. An example of this is fear created through thought (thoughtform), obsessing about it through the mental body, and then reacting to it on an emotional level. Before I knew what the bodies were, my vision would show colors: the yellow feeding mud to the pink and then the pink feeding it back to the yellow, if that makes sense. So that is how a thoughtform is born, and then grown. The more we allow the thoughtform(fear) to interact with the bodies the bigger they become. There are also social/cultural thoughtforms, which is a whole different blog!
The next and last one I would like to mention is the spiritual body. This is where we are headed in our next leap of evolution. Right now, man is working towards expanding themselves into this beautiful, soft white light. The trick is to move past the ego, which has found a great home in our other lower bodies. Example: all of us know that “spiritual” person who knows more than anyone else, or becomes angered when hearing something that does not fit their description of truth. That is ego, not spirituality or an expression of the spiritual body. In my belief, there are so many opinions because there are an infinite number of experiences and roads back to Source. This gives all of humankind a chance no matter how bitter or ugly their colors may become. When we are in the spiritual body the air feels fresh and free of judgment. In my view this is where we begin to interact with much higher vibrational states.
There could potentially be 10 pages written on each body and their interactions with chakras, physical body and all the other bodies, but again, I want to keep this as simple as possible for this post. In the future I will continue to add information as I go along. If we take a step back and view all of these bodies and their interactions it is easy to see how the information can quickly become overwhelming. Our physical body has an anatomy, as I have mentioned in my other blog posts, and each of our other bodies has an anatomy of its own, as well. I have not heard of any information regarding this, but I think it is important to discuss them. I hope to be able to draw out what I see eventually and share it with all of you, but for the time being I will just use words as best I can to describe. Each body and its anatomy reflect the state of the body as I see it. For instance, the emotional body is very curvy inside itself, the colors are soft, tantalizing, and alluring. The shapes carry smooth lines and its interaction within itself is hypnotizing and heavy. The anatomy of the mental body also reflects its state as I see it, with defined lines and sharper interactions within itself; it’s clear, and well-defined in all of it’s shapes, which carry less curve and more edgy lines. Spiritual body is more about sounds to me. This is where I can really start to hear higher vibrations rather than just “see” what I see. In its anatomy, I not only see both curvy and well defined lines and shapes I hear how those lines and shapes are interacting within itself as well as the other bodies. In this position, backed away, we can also view how each of the bodies and their inner anatomies begin to interact with the 7 chakras (and many, many more chakras not mentioned) of the physical body.
To tie it all together now, as I view the bodies of a client from the position mentioned above, I can begin to see how the all of these bodies are in fact part of us. We cannot see what is inside of our physical bodies. We know what is in there because through the ages we have learned, and in this day and age we have machines that can view what is past the flesh. We know that inside of every living thing is a very complex system. Veins, organs, bones, and cells. We know that everything inside of us has its own important function for our physical bodies. Now, imagine that for the emotional, mental, spiritual bodies. Each with its own anatomy. NOW imagine that everything inside of us, each cell and organ can also function with every one of our other bodies. While we do not have the tools to view or measure these other bodies or their anatomies, they are present and do have a major effect on our physical selves. I think in a few hundred more years we will be developing tools to view all of this.
So what does all of this mean? In my personal opinion I believe it is the process of Source stepping down its state to function in our physical body so that we may be Source in action. We are all children of God, or children of light, whatever you want to call it. We are all expanding ourselves to Source. Through every complexity of every anatomy in every body. The chakras, the bodies, all of them are connected to us in multidimensional ways so that we can express in an infinite number of ways the beauty of the Universe, God, Light, Source, whatever you choose to call it. When I think of myself as an aspect of divine light it makes me stop and think… If God(Source) came to me today, what would I want it to know? What would I show it? Where would I take this special guest? Well, for me I would want it to wear the finest clothes, experience the ultimate road trip, and eat the best foods. I would want God to experience the most amazing things in the world that were created for ME to experience. But…if God is inside of me, doesn’t that just mean that now my job is to express LOVE through me? I am here with the abundant gifts of the world that were created for me, for all of us. So, now I must act this way. I must know that I am ultimately cared for and loved, and that nothing is out of reach for me, provided it is for my highest learning experience. Now I can be free, because I know that I am the Source in action. Now I can understand the importance of treating myself well, and cutting out the negative self-talk. I would never speak to God the way I speak to myself. God is in all of us, we must now treat ourselves this way with our new understanding. We must LOVE ourselves and all of our brothers and sisters, because we are ALL part of the Divine Light that is God.
Our chakras, our bodies, they are all ways for us to connect with ourselves, nature, fellow man and SOURCE. When we stop trying to grab on to things outside of ourselves, gurus, money, food, spirit guides…when we go WITHIN we find the true source of love and divine guidance, we find ourselves, we find the children of Light that we truly are, the seed of God. Now, we can finally love ourselves for what we really are, a reflection or aspect of Source!
