What is the SUBTLE ENERGETIC BODY?
The subtle energetic body, or personal auric field, is a complex network of energetic meridians that consist of multiple bans of energy. This field encompasses the whole body and connects us with the outside world. The layers of the SEB have been distinguished in eastern philosophy as Chakras, or wheels, that deliver life essence (also called Prana, Reiki, Chi, or Mu) into various Nadis, or channels, thereby providing every cell, muscle, organ, and gland with life force.
Barbara Brennan States, “We are like sponges in the energy sea around us. It is important to open the chakras and increase our energy flow, because the more energy we let flow, the healthier we are. Illness in the system is caused by an imbalance of energy or a blocking of the flow of energy. Since this energy is always associated with a form of consciousness, we experience the energy we exchange in terms of seeing hearing feeling, sensing, intuiting, or direct knowing. Therefore, we can see that staying “open” means two things: First, it means metabolizing a lot of energy from the universal field through all the chakras, large and small. Second, it means letting in, and in some way dealing with, all the consciousness that is associated with the energy that is flowing though us. That is not an easy task, and most of us cannot do it. Psychological material related to each chakra is brought to consciousness by increasing one’s energy flow through that chakra. Too much psychological material would be released by a sudden flow of energy, and we could not process it all.” Therefore we must work in whatever growth process we are in to open each chakra slowly, and give ourselves time to process the personal material that is released. In time, we become cleaner and more aligned with our higher dimensional Self.
Going deeper…within the SEB, there are many different bio-fields that regulate and relate to various mental, emotional, spiritual and physical functions. Traditionally, there are 7-8 well known layers, or bodies: The etheric body, the physical body, the emotional body, the mental body, the heart, the communication body, the third eye sight, and the universal center. Each of these bodies affects the other...for instance, how you think directly relates to how you feel. How you feel directly affects the health of your physical system. Furthermore, there are actually two heart centers, each with an individual purpose and function; and 5 additional chakra bodies that hold our connection to the collective unconscious, Akashic records, other dimensional realities, and personalized soul history. The health of each layer is essential for the health of the whole organism. Within our programs, you will learn the detailed anatomy of the SEB, understand the relationship between different layers, and cleanse blocks or misalignments in your own Auric Field.
