7. – The Chakras And The Bodies

The human soul is connected to more than just the material body. In fact, the human being consist of seven bodies.

  1. The most obvious body is the material body, that is on the lowest vibrational level.
  2. The ethereal body is on the next higher vibrational level. It bridges the connection of the material body to the higher bodies and helps with the control of the material body, as it maintains the energy level of all parts of the material body. Disharmonies of the material body are mirrored in the ethereal. The ethereal body is very similar to the material body in size and shape and extends only a few fractions of an inch (a few millimeters) outside the skin of the material body. For most people, this body is invisible, while some can see this body as a slight light around the material body.
  3. The third body of the human being is the emotional body. It’s vibrational level is similar to feelings. It reaches several inches, up to about two feet (20 to 50 centimeters), outside the material body. Also this body is invisible to most people, as its vibrational level is far outside the spectrum the human eyes can see. This body and all higher bodies can however be seen with the third eye*, but it usually requires a lot of practice.
  4. The “lower” mental body is on the fourth level. This is the vibrational level of thoughts and ego.
  5. The “higher” mental body is on the fifth level. On its level we find consciousness, ideas and the intellect. The third, fourth and fifth bodies are the ones that primarily do the processing of the experiences that we make through the use of our material body.
  6. The intuitive body is on the sixth level. As the name says, here we are on the level of intuition.
  7. The seventh body is universal consciousness and is frequently called the causal body. Together with the intuitive body it forms the higher self and the permanent soul. The causal body reflects all experiences and events that the soul has ever had. The universal consciousness includes the unlimited possibilities and is the link to God – it is not just a link, but a pure part of God within us. It forms the unity of the soul and testifies of the endlessness of space and time in which the soul exists. Hence, there is no real “limit” to the dimension of this body – it extends outward indefinitely. The drawing below, showing a boundary of the seventh body, merely symbolizes the denser, focused area of the seventh body.

___ = intuitive body
___ = causal body

To allow the harmonic functioning of all these different bodies, and to allow the soul a temporary bonding with the material body, they are connected through seven energy centers, the chakras. The chakras are lined up along the spine and in the head of the material body. The chakras are located:

  1. at the tailbone
  2. on the spine near the top of the pelvis
  3. on the spine near the solar plexus
  4. on the spine near the heart
  5. in the neck
  6. in the center of the head near the forehead
  7. at the top of the skull

Each chakra has an important role for the exchange of information and vibrations between the bodies, e.g. a sensory perception of the material body will have an effect on the emotional and mental body. When the chakras are not functioning properly there can be problems with relaying some information, which can cause various problems, e.g. emotional problems when a human being cannot properly process physical contact because of a problem with the chakras. Also problems on the mental level can be caused, as the connection between the material sensory organs to the mental bodies can be disturbed. Many problems that show themselves in emotional or mental areas can be caused by chakra problems. These chakra problems can have various reasons, but most of the time it is an unbalanced spiritual development or karmic cause that disturbs the harmony of the chakras and the bodies. There are some healers that can help with such chakra problems, but the underlying problems need to be solved, because without solving the causes the problem will either persist or be moved to another area. The only way that leads out of this problem area is the Path of Light, because only this way the causes can be completely dissolved. For minor disturbances of the chakras the chakra exercise in chapter 4.2 can offer some help and flush out the causes so you can work them out. It is important to look at these problems in a holistic way, because when the causes get ignored they will continue to disturb the balance of the human being. Therefore regular light work (as shown in chapter 4) is necessary to overcome the disturbances, solve their causes and to prevent a shifting of symptoms.

In case of serious disturbances of the harmony of the chakras persistent spiritual work is necessary, but with a lot of regular light work even these can be solved. In some cases it may take years, or even decades, in extreme cases it could be more than a lifetime, until the causes and their effects on the chakras and the bodies are dissolved and harmony is restored.

* = The third eye is a non-material sensory “organ” that can perceive the astral world. In most humans, this third eye is closed and needs practice and spiritual development for opening and cleansing its pathways, to allow perception. It is linked with the chakra system. Through this link it is possible to perceive higher vibrations, like those from the higher bodies and other astral beings. The degree of how much the third eye is opened is not necessarily a sign for the spiritual level of a human being.

11.1 – Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is the ability to see some areas of the astral world. Some human beings, through their spiritual growth, have been able to learn to see frequencies that are not visible to most humans. Often clairvoyance begins with the ability to see ethereal bodies of beings. This is often called “aura reading” although the ethereal body is only a minor part of the aura. Of course observing the ethereal body can be very helpful in disease analysis, however in a way the ethereal body is a mirror image of the physical body and this “see-through” body makes it possible to some humans to see the inner organs and other parts of the ethereal body as if the body was made out of glass.

The ability of clairvoyance can be developed to various degrees and extend past seeing the ethereal body. Parts of the spirit world may be observed, and there is a larger number of humans who are able to see some spirit beings, e.g. souls of humans or other beings that are currently not incarnated, and there are some humans who are able to see other areas of the human aura, mostly the emotional body and in some cases other higher bodies.

Some humans have the strong desire to be able to see such areas. Although it is possible with some special exercises to promote the development of these (extra)sensory perceptions, the spiritual development of the human, and the cleansing and strengthening of the chakras is the only suitable way for the soul to open up the third eye which makes clairvoyance possible. Forcing to open the third eye is something dangerous for the unprepared soul and does not serve spiritual development. Be warned of hallucinogens, these may rip open the third eye with consequences for many incarnations.

Among Native American and other indigenous peoples there has been limited use of hallucinogens for spiritual purposes. Their use was in accord with an older wisdom and at the right dose for prepared persons (e.g. medicine men or shamans) it has usually been without harm. It is then mostly used as an aid to strengthen the clairvoyance ability of the shaman. Be warned of misuse for other purposes and improper use, as this can forcefully open sight into the lowest realms, where there are demons and similar creatures, and may cause very severe harm to the aura.

Address of Dec. 28, 2001: Earth Changes

by archangel Raphael

Be greeted, my friends on earth! It is with joy that I meet you on this day and that I have this opportunity to speak to you in this manner. While I have not used this method of communication much, I come to you on this day to speak to you about the transition that you are in, not only you, but this entire world – the planet, the humans, the animals, even the plants. Indeed every rock, every bit of sand, every drop of water, every bit of air is all involved in the transition, as everything you can see and touch is part of this planet’s matter, which is being transformed, elevated to a higher level of vibration. What may be difficult to understand is, that it is the main frequency that is lifted up, but at the same time some vibrations remain on the lower level for a limited time during the transition, so that to some these changes appear more physical while they remain on the lower level which will become less and less desirable to remain at, and some grow with the transition and their experience is that of an unfolding of a new world. Yet others use the special circumstances of such vibrational changes to elevate themselves enough to allow cleansing of karmic debt but this means also enduring quite a bit of discomfort as the energies are released and transformed. Some will not be able to handle all the discomfort and may decide to leave, however they should realize that they chose this path and this is an opportunity that will not come again for many millennia. This is a very unique opportunity for all incarnate souls, a time for thorough cleansing, and the cleansing has just begun, as you stand in the doorway of the transition, as it has been described before. Those that hesitate to enter and embrace the light will not be forced to enter, but it would be wise to accept this unique opportunity to transform yourself. So many souls have waited for this time, which is why you see so many incarnate souls on this planet, more humans than ever in this age, but this could be expected. Indeed there are still, you would say, “waiting lists” for souls, but not all will be allowed, and those that incarnate now will experience this world differently than the previous generation, due to the changes that have already taken place. Yes, many changes are more concerning the aura, the energy fields, of this planet earth, but the effects should become more and more evident even to those that still doubt that these changes are taking place. Some may never see the changes, as they close their eyes and declare the events to be of “natural” cause, which indeed is not so far fetched as the transition is indeed a “natural” event, but not a physically “natural” event, rather a spiritual one. However they may see it will not be of concern, the way you see it is only of concern, and I hope I have shed a bit of light on these matters for you. Blessed be, Amen, Amen, Amen.

Address of Apr. 16, 2000: Importance of Light

by archangel Michael

Greetings, dear friends on earth! I have come to you today to speak about the importance of “living with light” – expressing the cosmic light each day. During these challenging times, where you are facing all backed up problems that may have piled up, it is necessary to remain balanced, to remain centered – the only way you can achieve this is by using the light to connect yourself with the source of life, and cleanse yourself and your aura. As explained in detail in the triple light protection by Emmanuel, you can easily connect yourself with the source energy. Allow yourself a few minutes every day to apply this exercise – you will see the difference in your life, as you will not only find it easier to tackle your problems, but also will you be more in harmony with yourself, happier and healthier. You may have to go through a cleansing period to flush out some old burdens, but you will soon find out the true power of the white cosmic light – especially now, in this phase of the global transition. Now is the time to deal with old problems and get everything solved. The time of piling up debt – not just but also financially – is over. Now is the time to resolve all kinds of debts – including karmic. One step to do this properly and with the least amount of new or additional problems is to use the cosmic white light not only to ease the situation, but also to guide you into the right direction and give you the strength you need – and the inner balance. Embrace this wonderful opportunity to overcome your problems and debt. Take out the time for yourself to engulf yourself with the white light, you will find it is time well spent. Be blessed, and be greeted. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Lesson 14: Understanding the Triple Light Protection

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings to you all, my dear friends on the earth plane! I have come to you on this day to explain to you why it is so important to complete the triple light protection as described by Emmanuel (Path Of Light, Chapter 4.1) as it appears to me that the function and purpose of that exercise is not fully understood.

First of all, you live in a spirit world, you are connected with the astral world, and when you open yourself up – purposely or negligently – you also open yourself up to influences from lower astral planes. On those lower planes are beings that I do not wish to describe any further, as that may cause fear, but they pose a very challenging influence, that can be at times through temptation and false promises of power, or at other times through threat and fear, while there are also beings that simply have fun scaring others. This influence can be not only real, but it can be very, very strong, but at times so subtle that it is hard to detect and realize, especially since there are some that will try to fake being a higher being. The only true way to limit and prevent such influence is not by building up walls, but by reducing the chance that they can have any influence – only when you are filled with love and light energies, these forces cannot affect you. Archangel Michael spoke to you about “where there is light, there cannot be darkness” in a recent address. This is why the triple light protection is so important – when you are filled with the white light, dark forces cannot enter, nor influence you. They may try at first, but regular use of the triple light protections in a way sends out a message to all lower astral planes, saying “you can come and try, but all you will get is love and light” – which is something those beings like to avoid for it would raise their energies, cause changes in their state of being, and, essentially, cause them to be no longer evil. This they will try to avoid, and therefore the triple light protection avoids that such beings get near you, unless they are ready to change and then you have nothing to fear, for you will be assisted by angels to help such souls into the light.

To explain the functions in little more detail – the radiation of white light from the heart focuses your heart energy and helps it expand, so that you are radiating more and more light the more often you use this exercise. Little at a time, your spark of light expands and become a bigger and bigger flame which stays bigger even after the exercise is over, as long as you refresh it every so often – which is why regular use of this exercise is essential. Eventually, you may be able to have a flame as big as your aura, at which point there would be a very good chance that this alone may cause you to ascend – however, this requires regular use (at least twice daily) over a longer period of time.
The light from the central sun of the galaxy is divine light which comes from the strongest God energy center anywhere around. The central sun could be described as one of the main “chakras” of God, as it is a major energy concentration and energy distribution center. Due to the nature of this energy, it is not visible to the human eye, as it would blind you instantly because of its strength. The quality and effect of this light is of such a nature, that it assists in cleansing your bodies, the entire aura, replenishing lost energies, and releasing trapped alien energies (energies that you picked up somewhere else, e.g. someone else’s anger).
Requesting the assistance of your spirit guide and your guardian angel as part of a daily routine exercise is very important in building up your relationship with these important helpers on your side. Also, unless these helpers know what you request, they may at times not be able to assist due to their code. This does not mean they will do what you ask, because there may be other factors, like the wishes of your higher self, promises, or karma, involved.

I hope I have explained more to you today why we keep recommending this particular exercise. Feel free to choose to use this exercise, or pass it by. But you need to know the facts before you can make a more or less objective decision, which is why I have given you some more information about this exercise here.

Greetings to you, my dearest friends! Peace and Love to you! Amen. Amen. Amen.
