THE SEVEN SPIRITUAL BODIES by LAURALEI
Most of us understand reincarnation and our current physical life, represented in linear time, as past, present and future lives. In reality, a more accurate representation would be a circle.
Consider a circular pan filled with water, at rest and still, to represent the possibility of all your lifetimes. Now imagine, a single very large droplet, (your soul), entering into the center of the pan, which in turn, animates and creates ripples in all of the water.
The first waves are the most forceful and represents the early lifetimes of a soul. They have the biggest waves, because a new soul jumps into its early incarnations with enthusiasm and anxious to experience all it can. Everything is new and everything is a learning experience for a new soul.
Additionally, that initial droplet’s thrust into the center of the pan will also cause some of the water to spill over onto the floor outside the pan. This spilled water represents the spiritual parts of you that do not incarnate, and remain in their original spiritual form.
The next set of kinetic waves, reacting from the first waves, is still strong but not as forceful. These are more selective lifetimes that contain pre- planned experiences. We no longer are a “blank slate” or a new soul. We have the need for very specific experiences that will provide the exact spiritual growth and knowledge required to complete our paths and transpose our spirit to its next level.
The final smaller, barely there waves, gently moving to the outer edge of the pan represent the last and final phases of our incarnations. The experiences of these lifetimes is very exact, precise, and more focused. These small waves symbolize a soul ready to complete its karma and end its physical journey.
When the waves stop and the water becomes still our time here is done, our cycle on the physical plane is complete. Our soul has achieved it goals and understands the unique purpose for which it was created.
Now let’s return to the water that spilled out of the pan, the part of you that doesn’t incarnate. Besides the physical body, which is the water inside the pan, each soul has seven aspects of itself, all interacting with the physical self, and all having additional experiences on additional spiritual planes. Each of these seven bodies has a unique function, its own energy field or aura, and each are connected to your higher self or over soul.
There are many names for these other parts of you, I refer to them as: the Physical Body, the Emotional Body, the Mental Body, the Astral Body, the Causal Body, the Eutheric Body and the Celestial Body.
Most of us are aware of our physical, emotional, and mental bodies. Some of us are also aware of our astral bodies, on a conscious level. The above are the primary bodies we use during our stay in the physical world. .
So, while on Earth, you have the physical body through which you obtain sensory experience, the emotional body which interprets and assigns a quality of feelings to those experiences, the mental body which reasons, processes and evaluates those experiences and the astral body which is responsible for creating each experience.
When on the second or physical plane, our physical body should be the focus of our physical lifetime; it should be the only body operating in the physical realm, with the higher self directing it, from the upper spiritual planes.
When we allow our emotional body or our mental body to be in control of the physical experience, we live lives focused on sensory experiences, and caught up in our emotional and mental reactions to them. This can create huge imbalances in all your spiritual bodies, limit your spiritual achievements and prolong your cycle of karma.
The emotional body resides between the Earth plane and the third or Astral Plane, Both the Astral body and the Physical Body uses the Emotional Body to assign qualities to each experience. This body travels freely between planes, absorbing kinetic energy on the Astral Plane.
The emotional body has a long memory, because it never dies, this is evident when you initially meet someone and immediately have a strong reaction to them. Emotions transcend spiritual levels and evaluate the physical existence… When we die, our emotions remain intact. We always have, even in spirit form, the ability to feel love, anger, sadness and joy.
The Mental Body, which exists on the fourth spiritual plane, evaluates our life experiences and the impact they make for the collective karma of that soul. Additionally, it will measure the amount of spiritual growth attainable through future physical experiences. It makes sure our collective soul utilizes every moment of physical life as effectively as possible. This makes the Mental Body a very important aspect of who we are.
The next body, the Astral Body is an energy duplicate of the Physical Body and is the link between the Physical Plane and the Astral Plane. The Astral Body is nourished and absorbs energy from the Astral Plane, when we sleep. Also known as the light body, this part of us, plans and creates physical life interactions and events with other souls to further our spiritual growth. This explains why you have a dream about someone and then run into them the next day. Your Astral Body is responsible for setting up that meeting, as well as many others.
A healthy Astral Body initiates strong communication between the conscious and unconscious parts of your mind. If your Astral Body is disconnected from part of you or anchored in the physical realm, then your life is not being pre- planned, and you are more or less walking blind, without guidance, a victim of circumstances.
Now we look at the spiritual bodies you may not be aware that you have. The first one, the Causal Body, is also known as the Upper Mental Body. This body evaluates karma. It evaluates the need for the soul to continue reincarnating and it understands the path you need to take to be free from karma. When you meditate, pray, or slip into any kind of altered state, your experiences are translated through the Causal Body.
When you have a spirit or soul with a strong connection to their Causal Body that spirit radiates love and light. They are givers of energy, you feel good when you are near them. The Causal Body is the link to our Eutheric Body, informing it when karma and missions have been completed.
The Eutheric body when housing a master soul can change spiritual planes at will, appearing solid or less dense as required. It does not need to go through the birth process to become physical.
In simple terms, the Eutheric Body is your soul’s meter, conscience or moral compass. Truth changes, it is not constant, which makes right and wrong subjective to each soul.
No two people have the same purpose for creation, so no two people have the same path, or the same lessons or karma.
If each of us were to commit the same action, some of us would have a very large bag of karma, some of us smaller bags and some souls, none. It is the evolution of the soul, the experiences and intent of the soul, the learning and knowledge of the soul, and the interconnections of each soul to its other bodies that determine the karma associated with an action.
The Eutheric Body comprehends God’s unique purpose for your creation. It knows why your soul was created, what purpose it has and how that purpose is best discovered and revealed. It measures and tests the growth rate of the soul and determines if that soul is worthy of advancing to higher levels. All moral judgments and all moral understandings come from the Eutheric Body.
The Seventh Spiritual Plane is home to your seventh spiritual body, called the Celestial Body. It is the part of you, which always remains with God. Part of each soul always vibrates in God’s presence, for which there are no physical words or experience to describe it. Only a handful of physical beings every decade, make it here consciously.
The Celestial Body’s main function is to sustain the flow of energy to the entire soul system. Additionally, it repairs, rebuilds or strengthens communication between all of your various bodies and parts.
The Celestial Body monitors all the other bodies and decides when any of them becomes damaged, whether or not to continue with the current incarnation. It may decide to end the physical life and put the Emotional, Mental, Astral and Causal Bodies into a deep state of rest. While these bodies are unconscious, it will repair, reprogram and re-plan the path for its soul’s progression.
When we have completed the task for which we were created, our Celestial Body absorbs the energies of any of our remaining bodies. We vibrate only to light, serve light and produce the light, of all that is.
