seven-layers

The Energy Field is referred to as the HEF or the UEF (Universal Energy Field.) How Barbara Brennan describes the HEF is what resonates with me.

  • 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)

etheric-bodyThe first auric layer is the Etheric Body associated with physical aspects and awareness of the material body and is related to the First (Root) Chakra.

It is on the next higher vibrational level to the physical body which has the lowest vibrational level. It bridges the connection of the material body to the higher bodies. The etheric body is an energy matrix and the form is shaped and anchored to the physical matter of the material body. The etheric body extends only a quarter of an inch up to two inches outside the skin of thephysical body. The etheric body is invisible to most people, while some can see it as a faint grayish-white color outlining the physical body. The Etheric Body (from “ether,” the state between energy & matter) is composed of tiny energy lines, “like a sparkling web of light beams.” The Etheric Body consists of a definite structure. It pulsates about 15-20 cycles per minute. The web like structure of the Etheric Body is in constant motion. Its color varies from light blue to gray.

A more sensitive person with a sensitive body will tend to have a bluish first layers, whereas a more athletic, robust type of person will tend to have a more grayish Etheric Body.

Layer 2 – Emotional Body (Lower Emotional Aspect)

emotional-bodyThe second auric layer is the Emotional Body associated with the vibrational level of inner feelings and related to the Second (Sacral Plexus) Chakra.

It extends one to three inches from the body. This body or auric layer and all higher layers are perceived by the third eye. The second auric body, or next finer after the Etheric Body is the Emotional Body. It is associated with feelings. Its structure is much more fluid than the Etheric Body and does not duplicate the physical body. It appears to be colored clouds of fine substance in continual fluid motion. This body interpenetrates the denser bodies that it surrounds. Its colors vary from brilliant clear hues to dark muddy ones, depending on the clarity or confusion of the feeling or energy that produces them.

Clear & highly energized feelings such as love, excitement, joy or anger are bright and clear; those feelings that are confused are dark & muddy. As these feelings become energized through personal interaction, body psychotherapy etc, the colors separate out into their primary hue and brighten.

The body does appear to be blobs of color moving within the matrix of the etheric field and also extending beyond it a bit. At times a person may throw off color blobs of energy into the air around him.

Layer 3 – Mental Body (Lower Mental Aspect)

mental-bodyThe third auric layer is the Mental Body which is associated with the vibrational level of thoughts and mental processes of the ego and related to the Third (Solar Plexus) Chakra.

It extends three up to eight inches around from the physical body. This body extends beyond the Emotional and is composed of still finer substances, all of which are associated with thoughts and mental processes.

This body appears as a bright yellow light radiating about the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. The Mental Body is a also a structured body. it contains the structure of our ideas. Within this field can be seen thought forms. They appear to be blobs of varying brightness & form.These thought forms have additional colors superimposed on them, actually emanating from the emotional level.The color represents the person’s emotion that is connected to the thought form.

The clearer and more well- formed the idea, the clearer and more well-formed is the thought form associated with that idea.

Layer 4 – Astral Body

astral-bodyThe fourth auric layer is the Astral Body associated with areas of expression on a physical, emotional and mental level and is related to the Fourth (Heart) Chakra.

It is called the bridge between the denser or lower vibrations of the physical plane and the finer or higher vibrations of the spiritual planes. It is the layer in which all energy must pass through when going from one world to the other. It extends about half a foot up to one foot around from the body. The Astral Body tends to have the same colors as the Emotional Body, but infused with the Rose Light Color of Love. The heart chakra of a loving person is infused with the rose light on the Astral Level.

When people fall in love, beautiful arcs of rose light can be seen between their hearts and a beautiful rose color is added to the normal golden pulsations observed in the Pituitary Gland. When people form relationships with one another, they grow cords out of the chakras that connect them. These cords exist on many levels of the auric field in addition to the astral.

The longer & deeper the relationship, the more cords and the stronger they are. When the relationships end those cords are torn.

Layer 5 – Etheric Template Body (Physical Aspect)

etheric-templateThe fifth auric layer is the Etheric Template associated with aspects of the physical body and related to the Fifth (Throat) Chakra.

Known as a blueprint of the lower etheric body and where matter is shaped into the physical aspect.

The vibrational level in this layer is where sound creates matter.

Balance and restoration of physical illnesses in the lower etheric body requires healing work at the etheric template level.

It extends one and onehalf up to two feet around from the physical body.

Layer 6 – Celestial Body (Emotional Aspect)

celestial-bodyThe sixth auric layer is the Celestial Body associated with processes of enlightenment and related to the Sixth (Brow or Third Eye) Chakra.

It is composed almost exclusively of light and is also known as the intuitive level.

This layer gives us access to higher qualities of feelings, thoughts and manifestations.

It extends two feet up to two and three and a quarter feet around from the physical body.

Layer 7 – Ketheric or Causal Body (Mental Aspect)

ketheric-templateThe seventh layer is the Ketheric or Causal Body associated with the Divine or Universal Consciousness and is related to the Seventh (Crown) Chakra.

The causal body contains the life plan or “soul contract” and reflects all experiences and events that the soul has ever experienced and is the level directly related to the current incarnation.

The ketheric body is the purest form and link to God, within each of us.

This layer is on a level that cannot be experienced from the limiting viewpoint of ego.

It extends two feet up to three and one half feet in an oval shape around the physical body.

Layer 8 – Memory Body

The eighth layer is the Time Layer associated with interfaces from past Akashic Records, present and future karmic memories, or existences and is related to the Eighth (Memory or Time Continuum) Chakra. This layer is also known as the “White Zone.” It is connected with the crown of the head and extends upward one foot up to three feet above the physical body.

Layer 9 – Soul Body

The ninth layer is the Soul Body or Soul Level, associated with the planes between the worlds of heaven and now and is related to the Ninth (Soul Star) Chakra. This layer interfaces with our “oneness” with Divine order in our pre-destined soul contracts. This auric layer is very small and occupies an almost non-existent space on the physical plane. It is located several inches above the head.

Layer 10 – Integrative Body

The tenth layer is the Integrative Body that serves as a pathway between the physical and the spiritual worlds and related to the Tenth (Grounding) Chakra. This layer is also known as the “traveling path” for the “dream body” in which is able to separate itself from the physical body and enter into the astral realms. It can access data from our genetic and soul heritage and contains imprints of our soul purpose. It is also recognized as the layer which integrates our chakras and spiritual energy centers. It is located in between the physical body and the etheric body.

Layer 11 – Eternal Body

The eleventh layer is the Eternal Body or Eternal Soul level and where our physical bodies are transformed into a light body and prepared for ascension, and is related to the Eleventh (Eternal or Eternal Soul) Chakra. It is connected to and above the memory body in a linear funnel/mushroom shape.

Layer 12 – Universal Mind Body

The twelfth layer is the Universal Mind Body or Divine Consciousness Level, known as the ultimate connection to the Divine, Universal Consciousness, Ascended Masters and God, and is related to the Twelfth (Universal Mind) Chakra. It is located in an encompassment of fluid-like illumination penetrating the entire bodiment of the auric layers or esoteric bodies.
