Etheric Body

The etheric body, ether-body, was given by neo-Theosophy to a vital body or subtle body propounded in esoteric philosophies as the first or lowest layer in the “human energy field” or aura. It is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body, to sustain it and connect it with “higher” bodies.

Of the seven subtle bodies, the Etheric body energy is only one-quarter to two inches beyond your physical self and resonates at nearly 20 cycles per minute. Kirlian photography allows the entire body to be perceived in generally a bluish the aura. Because the etheric body vibrates with and holds information pertaining to one’s physical health, energies can duplicate in the body.

The Etheric Energy Body is the second etheric layer of our energy body and is located approximately one quarter to one half an inch (not more than one inch) from the physical body. Energy medicine practitioners who are adept at psychically sensing this layer have described it as feeling “webby.” Much like a spider web, it feels sticky, or stretchy. It is also grey or grey-bluish in color. The etheric energy body has also been referred to as the blueprint or holograph of the physical body.

This is the nearest energy body to the physical body. This can be seen and captured in Kirlian photography. The etheric body extends between a quarter to two inches beyond the physical body and ocilates 15-20 x a min. The whole body, including organs, can be perceived but it is made of a blue /emotional or gray light/ highly active.

The etheric body is made up of chi and forms a structure of meridians throughout the body. These meridians run through all the major organs, glands, nerves and energy centers. This system of etheric energy permeates the physical body, supporting and sustaining it.

All life forms including plants and animals have an etheric body. Nothing physical can be alive without the etheric body as it feeds the physical with energy which is vital for its health and survival. Astral forces interact with the etheric layer and thereby transform basic life-force chi into many other types. The astral actually grasps the etheric and this is how it incarnates and creates with the physical substances.

To explain how the interaction works I would like to talk about weeds and plants. Weeds, like all other life forms, have an etheric body. However, they have very little interaction with astral forces and this is the reason for their rapid growth. Without astral forces grasping the etheric of weeds their life force energy is allowed to expand easily.

If unhindered they will grow and grow, taking over an entire area. Plants are different in that they have more interaction with astral forces. They do not have an astral body as such but there are astral beings like fairies or nature spirits that are involved with their growth. A fairy has an astral body but does not have an etheric or physical body. They do not incarnate like humans and animals but do interact with the etheric and physical planes. By the interaction of the fairies’ astrality with plants, the growth of the plants is slowed. The life-force chi is transformed by the interaction with the specific astral forces creating a different kind of chi specific to the particular plant. Flowers are a result of this astral interaction along with slower growth and a specific type of chi energy. This is the reason for plants having healing properties that may not be explainable through the actual physics of the plant. There may seem to be no interaction on a physical level but the chi of the plant can affect the chi of a person, which leads to healing. Understanding the astral forces and resulting chi energy of plants is where healers and medicine men of various tribes and civilizations gained their knowledge. It was not a trial-and-error science but one of feeling the essence of a plant and knowing what it may be used for.Image result for etheric body picture

This interaction between the astral and etheric is the same in humans and animals. The main difference is that humans and animals have their own astral body whereas plants receive astral forces from fairies and other beings as well as the astral fields surrounding the planet.

A human’s astral body concentrates certain astral forces in various places throughout the body with the organs and glands being the main locations.

By the interaction in these areas the chi is transformed into organs and glands chi which is then circulated throughout the meridian system.

The health of the astral body directly relates to the health of the etheric body which in turn affects the physical body.

If any channels are blocked or there is poor circulation of chi the physical will suffer as well as the astral/mental and emotional state of the person.

All disease and weakness of immunity comes down to the health and strength of the etheric body.

So basically you have a body of energy that permeates the physical body, giving it sustenance, health and vitality, without which the physical body could not be alive.

All etheric energy comes from the lower dimensions.

The strengthening and clearing of blockages in the meridian system is extremely important for spiritual growth.

Tantric sex techniques are vital in increasing the vibration of the etheric and with proper techniques is the most powerful way available to give it strength and vitality.

 Function: The Etheric Body gives vitality, health, life and organization to the Physical Body. It attunes our consciousness to the principle of Energy. It steps energies from the higher bodies down into our physical consciousness.

The etheric body is the first energy body in frequency above the physical body.  It exists within the physical body, and extends outward about an inch outside the skin of the physical body.  Its purpose is to form an energy template or matrix for the development, maintenance and repair of the physical body.  The etheric body contains a vibrational energy counterpart for each organ, blood vessel and bone found in the physical body.  Indeed, the etheric body contains the energetic blueprint for the pathways that guide the location and development of every cell of the physical body.  Our physical bodies exist only because of the vital (etheric) field behind them.  This etheric field exists prior to, not a result of, the physical body. Since the etheric body is the physical body’s blueprint, the two are very closely related.  The energetic vibrations of the etheric body determine the pattern for not only the physical tissues and organs, but also the state of health of those tissues and organs.

Range of Consciousness: An awareness of various types of subtle energy moving through the Physical Body and in the environment. Subtle/etheric energy can be seen as well as felt.

Form and Structure: The Etheric Body is the subtle level of the Physical Body. It is composed of various energies such as electromagnetic, chi, prana, ki, vitality, etc. It is also composed of subatomic particles, the finest of which are quarks.

It glows overall with color variations in the range of blue to violet to silver.

The Etheric Body has a figure form in the same shape as the Physical Body. This figure form is made of numerous energy channels called nadis or meridians. There are seven major energy centers, called chakras, that are connected to the endocrine glands and process seven main types of consciousness. There are 21 minor energy centers and many smaller energy centers.

The Etheric Body has two auric layers. The first extends about one foot from the Physical Body. The second extends about three or more feet from the Physical Body. Each auric layer has luminous string-like hairs that radiate out and always move in wave like motions. From the inner body, sparkles of vitality move outwards.

It has a total of 3 spatial dimensions.

How Awakened: Awareness of the Etheric Body and the etheric universe is awakened by do practices such as pranayama, tai chi, chi kung (qi gong), taoist yoga as well as simply by paying attention with the idea of energy in mind.

If the vibrations are not clear and pure, this disharmony will be reflected in the physical body as disharmonious function — what we call “disease”.

Conversely, traumas to the physical body (e.g., broken bones, burns, incisions and scars) will in time be reflected into the etheric body unless there is some interceding process that either prevents this reflection into the etheric body or which restores the original vibrational pattern which existed prior to the trauma.  The ability to work with a client’s vibrating energy fields is precisely what forms the basis for rapid and effective energy-based physical healings. An illness can appear in the energy field weeks and even months before it appears in the physical body.

It is seen as a light blue or colorless layer to most.

This layer connects mainly with the first chakra, our organs, glands, meridians, and relates to the condition and health of the physical body. It also includes the energy pattern on the surface of and within the physical body—it is an energetic mirror of the structure of the physical body and is the pattern upon which it is based. When there is an imbalance in the Etheric Body the physical body will be directly impacted and be out of balance.

Issues related to this would deal with; basic security, safety, protection, boundary, life, death, skin or appearance issues.  It regulates all the physical requirements for the skin.   Diseases and issues related to the skin and our basic survival issues that are related to the physical.  All the concerns related within the first chakra are associated with this layer.  Example: finances, career, structure and security.

This field can also be seen around trees, plants, animals and even inanimate objects such as furniture.

The whole body, including organs, can be perceived but it is made of a blue /emotional or gray light/ highly active.

Often what is described as the supra-etheric bodies are actually higher octaves or “resonances” of the etheric body

The Etheric Body (this is sometimes known as the physical level) is what we call a structured level. This body holds the blueprint /creative matrix of the physical body.

Every organ, bone, limb, tissue, etc. Has an energetic structure around it, holding and permeating it.

The phantom limb effect is another example of the etheric body. Even when the limb has been removed, sensation can be felt as if the toes were still there, like itching.
The etheric body functions as an energetic map, carrying information that guides the cellular growth. In embryo development, the DNA gives the genetic coding which supplies the cells the information they need for the job they have to do. The grid intelligence of the etheric body tells them where to go.

When the physical body has developed, and there is injury or illness we work with this level and level 5 to help repair the body.
We are light conductors. The energetic grid is a network for energetic communication from Source (sometimes referred to as God, Universe, Divine). Reasons for interplay between structure and fluid levels, works in the same way that water conducts electricity and holds memory, the HEF is a conductor, but what is held in the memory can block the transmission from source, thus inhibit the truest expression and greatest potential of our divine being. We get stuck in self-repeating, self-creating patterns, the story of me.
Grid work healing is for restructuring and charging the HEF when the field is damaged or depleted, and is not a good conductor of life force.
The etheric/ physical body contain the meridian lines and acupuncture points which create a structured web of energy that helps to maintain the health of our physical body. This level can be weakened by various factors including: electromagnetic pollution, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, genetic factors and karmic patterning in the astral body.

The Etheric Template Body: A template that exists far before the physical body form, this is the template for what you know as the physical body and is thought to co-exist in a different dimension. Extending about a foot and a half from the body, the Etherictemplate is only visible to advanced healers and clairvoyants. The building block of healing the lower etheric body, this template boasts deep, blue hues possibly because it is a blueprint containing all the forms of the physical world, creating a negative space.

This is a template for the lower template body. This is the template that exists before the formation of the physical body . Even though this co-exists in a different realm, it also extends one and a half to two feet from the body and can be seen only by clairvoyants and very advanced healers. This is an important layer in healing if the lower etheric body becomes dysfunctional since it is a ‘building block’ to the lower etheric bodies. This template is dark blue clour tone.

Everything that exists in the physical plane has its own subtle etheric body counterpart. The human etheric body is the vibrating web of energy from which our energetic blueprint is created. Vibrating at a slightly higher frequency than the physical plane it is normally unseen but none the less important for our well-being. Its strength & vitality can be undermined by shock, trauma & drug use as well as unresolved issues filtering down to it from other subtle bodies. The etheric body is linked to the base chakra.

The etheric layer extends one-quarter to two inches beyond the physical body.  The etheric layer is the matrix upon which all physical matter / body tissue is anchored.  The layer will appear as a bluish gray haze or more properly sparks of blue or gray light moving around energy lines.  The energy layer pulsates around 20 cycles per minute.  The layer’s color ranges from blue to gray – gray representing a more robust, athletic type of person and blue being associated with a more sedentary person.Image result for etheric body picture

The Etheric Body (this is sometimes known as the physical level) is what we call a structured level. This body holds the blueprint /creative matrix of the physical body. ‘Vibrational Medicine’ by Richard Gerber, described experiments by a Korean acupuncturist Dr. Kim who did experiments on rabbit and chick embryos which showed fine lines of structure forming within hours of fertilization, i.e. before the organs had formed. These lines were not related to the blood network, i.e. they were not veins, and they were an energetic holding pattern. Also, he detected an energy axis that precedes the spine in the unfertilized egg of salamanders which showed that an energetic potential has to exist for physical manifestation to take place.
Every organ, bone, limb, tissue, etc. Has an energetic structure around it, holding and permeating it.

The first of the levels of being beyond the physical body is the formative-field body or what the Theosophists call the “Etheric” body.  This “Etheric Body” is the subtle life-force body, which sustains the life of the physical body, and serves as matrix for physical metabolic functions.Image result for etheric body picture

The term “etheric body” can have several different possible meaning’s.  Quote apart from the fact that with some New Age/theosophical/esoteric belief systems the “etheric” is used to define a high or even the highest spiritual body, there is the fact that even as the body of formative force or auric energy there is the etheric body in the sense of any or all of the vayu (prana/ch’i/life-force) bodies

– the etheric body (as defined on the present page) in the sense of any of the dense or obvious prana / ch’i / life-force bodies (exclusive of the emotional, mental, spiritual, etc.)

– the etheric body in the sense of only the lowest of the prana / ch’i / life-force bodies (the “lower etheric” in other words)Image result for etheric body picture

In any case the Etheric body is the repository of the life-force or vitality principle (variously called ch’i, ki, prana, vayu, pneuma, orgone, libido, etc) for the entire psycho-physical organism.  Hence we can speak of an energy flow between the different levels of one’s being.

This life-force is often identified with the breath, and hence we find the term for the “soul” or “spirit” (in this case, actually the Etheric body) in many cultures having “breath” or “wind” as their primary meaning: e.g. ruah, psuche, pneuma, anima, spirtus, atma, etc etc.

This vital-energy flows through the various channels or nadis or meridians, and is processed in the energy-centres or chakras.Image result for etheric body picture  The Etheric body is also the locus of the “subtle anatomy” of chakras, nadis, meridians, etc, that form a central part of Indian and Tibetan Tantra and Chinese Yoga and Medicine.  This vital force or ch’i-energy flows through the various channels or nadis or meridians, and is processed in the energy-centres or chakras

Alternative Medicine, whether Chinese, Tibetan, homoeopathic, Reiki, etc etc, likewise works on the level of the Etheric or subtle body.  These practices are “alternative” only relative to Western Materialistic medical science, which treats the Physical body.  Criticism of alternative medicine is due to conventional medicine’s inability to recognize the existence of a more subtle body in or upon which these therapies do work.

Although Theosophical and New Age writers often speak of  every subtle body or vehicle of consciousness possessing chakras, and describe these chakras as energy vortexes or whatever, it is really only the Etheric body that is so endowed.  This is because any higher bodies, being non-physical, do not have a specific form, but take on or imitate the form of the Etheric and/or the Physical bodies.  Hence the Astral and higher bodies may appear to possess chakras, but they only have them through association with the Etheric body, and not as an innate part of their being.
