The Physical Plane Part 2 – Positive Reflection Of The Week
Exploring Our Subtle Bodies
Part 2: The Physical Plane
Last week we introduced ourselves to our Subtle Bodies. As a recap, we said that there are many energetic layers or envelopes that surround the Physical Body. And because they are so subtle, they cannot be seen by the naked eye.
There are however been advancements in the photography field where processes such as the Kirlian Photography can help capture these energy bodies.
We now know that our Energetic Bodies are divided into three Planes:
The Physical Plane, The Cosmic Plane, and The Divine Plane. This week we will look at a closer look at the Subtle Bodies of the Physical Plane.
The Physical Plane houses the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd subtle bodies that are also known as The Etheric, Astral, and Soul respectively.
The Etheric Body is the immediate energy body layer that surrounds our Physical Body and it is what keeps us alive. If we lose connection with this energy body, or it gets cut off, we experience what is known as biological death. When you view an aura and notice a pale blue ring around your body, this is the layer that you “see”.
The Astral Body surrounds the Etheric Body, and besides being part of the life force energy, it is what gives us our conscious and subconscious minds. It is also connected to our Nervous System where we are able to “sense” things before they happen or are about to happen. If we disconnect from the Astral Body, we lose our consciousness. The color associated with this layer is Sapphire Blue.
The third layer of the Physical Plane is the Soul Body. It not only takes on the functions of the previous two bodies but also manages and creates the desire for self-realization and also spiritual life. It is from the essence of the soul that stems a desire to pursue more than just what is. The Color of your Soul Body is Pink, or sometimes red.
Together the Etheric, Astral, and Soul Bodies make up what is known as the Alchemical Body. When we experience physical death, all three bodies also “die” and have to be built again when we reincarnate.
Next week we will look at the Cosmic Plane and the subtle bodies contained therein.
