Subtle Bodies 12
When the higher vibrations from the universe as a Cosmic Energy reach the earth and are absorbed in the Human Body, fill all energetic centers expressing themselves throw aura which are forming the subtle bodies.
Vibrations means the degree of life.
Life in the physical body is slower than life in the atmic body.
The first three Layers are on the Physical Plane: Etheric Body, Emotional Body & the Mental Body.
The Astral Body, where the Heart Chakra resides is the only Layer that stands alone. This is the Astral Plane (bridge)
The top three layers reside on the Spiritual Plane – The Etheric Template, Celestial Body & Ketheric Body.
Layer 1 – Etheric Body (Lower Etheric Aspect)The Physical Energy Body – The first layer is our physical energy body.
This is the layer that we generally think of as our physical selves.
But, our physical bodies are also energy, same as the other layers of the body that most people cannot see or sense on a physical level..
The physical body is the body that is best known to modern science. It comprises of the skeletal framework, muscles, tissues, organs, blood, 5 sense organs, etc.
The physical body we have contains the rest of the bodies ( 6 invisible bodies).
Our human body consists of five layers of energy.
The first layer is our physical body.
The outer four layers of energy are commonly referred to as your aura.
Collectively, these five layers or “energy bodies” are the human energy field. An energy medicine practitioner treats all layers of the human energy field, not just the physical layer.
The seven subtle bodies can be broken down as follows: There are three physical plane bodies, three spiritual plane bodies and the astral body, which is the bridge between the lower and higher bodies.
The lower three bodies process energies dealing with the physical plane, whereas the upper three process energies from the spiritual planes.
That means, God is very much felt from the upper bodies than the lower ones
So from here we can divide a human into 2 groups of bodies ( the lower bodies and the higher bodies).
The energies from the higher planes must pass through the “fire of the heart” – the heart chakra– to reach and be completely of use by the lower bodies. Each level has its own seven chakras, which can be found within the other auric chakras.
The lower bodies are : The physical body, the astral body, the mental body.
The lower bodies is a trinity (1,2,3 bodies), this group of body is a copy of the higher bodies, which is also a trinity.
Trinity as you might already know is the expression of a kind of life.
So what kind of life a normal human being usually have, the answer is the “The life of the lower bodies” (the lower trinity), yes because human in general function in that lower group of bodies.
The group of lower bodies is the lower nature (or lower self) of a human, and the group of higher bodies is the higher nature (or higher self) of a human.
The higher bodies are : the Causal body , the buddic body and the Atmic body..
As each layer extends outwards, the chakras vibrate at higher rates.
So the seven chakras within the etheric body will be vibrating at a much lower frequency then the seven chakras within the causal body.
So the root chakra, for example, will have 7 major chakras, all vibrating at different frequencies.
Energy can thus be transmuted between all bodies to all chakras.
Our lower nature is connected to the lower worlds ( or the lower regions of the universe), and our higher nature is connected to the higher worlds (or higher plans of existence), also called “the spiritual worlds”.
The subtle body
A subtle body is one of a series of psycho-spiritual constituents of living beings, according to various esoteric, occult, and mystical teachings. According to such beliefs each subtle body corresponds to a subtleplane of existence, in a hierarchy or great chain of being that culminates in the physical form.
The subtle body is defined as that part of our being or consciousness that leaves our physical body at the time of physical death.
It comprises of the mental body, the causal body or intellect, the supra causal body or subtle ego and the soul.
What is left behind at the time of physical death is our physical body.
The vital energy is released back into the Universe.
The following are some other aspects of the subtle body
Subtle sense organs: By subtle sense organs we mean the subtle aspect of our 5 sense organs by which we are able to perceive the subtle realm.
For example we are able to perceive a subtle fragrance such as jasmine without there being any stimulus to cause it. Also the fragrance may only be experienced by one person and not by the others in the same room.
This is explained in more detail.
Subtle motor organs: By subtle motor organs we mean the subtle aspect of our physical motor organs such as our arms, tongue, etc.
All activity is initiated first in subtle motor organs and then executed in the physical dimension by one’s gross motor organs.
The subtle ego or the supracausal body is the final vestige of the nescience and is the feeling that we are separate from God.
The vital energy body
This is the body also known as the prana–deha.
This body provides the vital, life sustaining energy for all the functions of the physical as well as the mental body.
There are five types of vital energies or praana:
- Prāna: Energy for the activity of inhalation.
- Udāna: Energy for the activity of exhalation and speech.
- Samāna: Energy for the activity of the stomach and intestines.
- Vyāna: Energy for voluntary and involuntary movements of the body.
- Apāna: Energy for urination, excretion, ejaculation, childbirth, etc.
At the time of death the vital energy is released back into the Universe and also helps in propelling the subtle body in its onward journey.
