SWAMI RAMA: “The Spiritual Layers of Man”

“The spiritual body knows all things, lives in utmost purity, and gathers true, divine knowledge. Its energy vivifies and nourishes all the other bodies of man.”

~Swami Rama

 

Since the beginning of mankind, man has wondered who he is, what he is doing here, and where he is going after death. He looked at the outer world and fell in awe before the forces of nature. He looked inside and discovered that he was more than a physical body. He experimented with plants and with meditation, and found that he and his environment also existed on other levels of consciousness. He passed on his knowledge orally and later he wrote down his experiences. Thus his fellow human beings and their descendants could learn about this, and on the basis hereof interpret their own experiences.

At present we live in society where the emphases is on material gain and security, by which the other facets of life, namely the spiritual, have been well suppressed.

Nevertheless people continue to experience states of existence, and facets of life, other than the material. From this I have gathered information to present you with an overview of the makeup of man, the different planes of existence available to him, and the continuing of his life after the transition we call death. It is essential to your well-being to know who you are and what happens after death. We all share the gift of living, so we should know who we are; and we all share the same destiny in this life, so we should know what is death.

Human beings like to interpret, categorize and label their experiences. Nature, or life, do not do that. Bear in mind that what follows is an attempt to make the information understandable and clear. Every interpretation, categorization and labeling is artificial and should not be taken as the unmistakable truth. They are like sign posts, giving you an idea what you are about.

The Basic Trinity of Man

The most basic distinction we can make in regards to the make-up of man is that he consists of a personality, an individuality and a divine essence.

The personality is the lower self, consisting of the physical body and the psychic soul. It has the genetics of its forefathers, the energy system to keep the physical body alive, and the psychological and psychic characteristics that define us as human. He has the abilities to express himself through thought, language, and other intellectual capacities.

The personality is a unit of incarnation, it is all those bodies and all those characteristics you have taken on for this incarnation. As it belongs to the world of form, it is temporary. It was created to express yourself in this world on a temporary basis. When you die, the personality dissolves. The experiences you have gained during your lifetime are then being absorbed by your individuality.

The individuality is the higher self. It is the unit of evolution. It does not die but remains the same throughout the many incarnations. It learns from all the experiences in those incarnations. While the personality often does not know why it incarnated, as with every birth memory of the past has been wiped out, the individuality has an overview of all incarnations, and of the meaning of everything that happens to the person. Eventually the individuality will go back into the Divine.

The divine essence is what man always has been, at this moment is, and always will be. Each living being is a part of the Divine. It is often compared with a star, or a light spark. Although it seems that each living being is a separate light spark in this universe of darkness, our divine essence links us all together, as in the Divine there is no distinction, only unity prevails. Our divine essence does not know duality, only unity.

Our language is too limited to express the Divine, but we try it anyway and thus we say that the Divine, and our divine essence, is perfect, immortal, eternal, unchangeable, formless and so on. The individuality and personality are not perfect, mortal, temporal, subjected to change, have form and so on.

The Bodies of Man

There are several systems, doctrines, and philosophies that have their own classification and names for the different bodies of man. Aside from some minor details they all fit together in the following basic schematic.

  • The physical body
  • The astral body
  • The mental body
  • The spiritual body

All these bodies belong to the world of creation, and thus are temporal. They have form and each has a specific function that allows man to express himself in the world.

The Physical Body

The physical body allows man to express himself in the physical world. It is built out of cells, molecules and atoms, and it needs food to survive. It is the most crystallized of al bodies, and the most dense. The physical body is male or female, and this polarity plays an immense role in the life of man.

The physical body is kept alive and structured by the ethereal body. The ethereal body is often seen as a separate body, but it is actually a template, a matrix for the physical body. The physical atoms, molecules and cells arrange themselves according to the structure of the ethereal body. The ethereal matrix looks like a web of energy lines, like light fibers which attract physical matter and arrange it into a physical body.

You can say that the physical body is a duplicate of the ethereal body. Did you know that with children, when a piece of a finger got cut off, the entire finger will grow back again (for some reason this ability gets lost in later years). How do the cells know how to structure themselves in order to grow a new finger? It is because they follow the ethereal matrix along which they align themselves. In primitive animals, like salamanders, this ability remains for their entire live. They will grow a new limb, or tail, easily. The ethereal body is responsible for the pain of so-called phantom limbs. It has been a medical mystery for a long time, that when a limb has been amputated, the patient will feel pain in this limb that actually is not there anymore. The pain is often long-lasting. In the light of the above we can explain this pain in phantom limbs. Although the physical limb has gone, the ethereal counterpart is still there. The surgical removal of that limb created an immense trauma on the body. In normal circumstances traumas settles themselves on muscles, creating muscle spasms which in turn creates pain. As the physical body by itself is inert, the trauma always happens on the level of the ethereal body, which will pass on the trauma to the physical body, mostly to the muscles. In the case of an amputated limb, the trauma is still in the ethereal counterpart of that limb, and thus pain is felt. It just does not have the ability to express itself on the physical level. People have successfully removed this ‘phantom’ pain by methods of relaxation, hypnosis and energy work.

Although the physical body can loose parts or can be deformed during the course of a lifetime, the ethereal body always remains the same. The only change that can happen to the ethereal body is constriction on the energy flow through its fibers (also called nadis). This will result in ailments and diseases in the physical body. When the nadis are ‘cleared’, or the constriction of them lifted, by energy healing of one kind or another, the physical ailments or diseases will disappear.

The ethereal body absorbs the solar and lunar pranas (subtle energies) and transforms them into the necessary life energies for the physical body. They keep the physical body not only alive but also healthy. The ethereal body acts especially on the muscles, and with the ethereal body we experience time.
The physical body, as it is composed of physical matter is by itself inert. It is through the ethereal body that we feel pain, suffering, hunger, thirst and other ‘physical’ comforts or discomforts.

The Astral Body

The astral body is the body that allows us the experience of emotions, lust, instincts, desires and so on.

The astral body does not have organs, although it takes on a form similar to the physical body. It is composed of little astral particles which are in constant movement. The astral body takes up these astral particles from its astral environment and then ‘breathes’ them out again. The astral can take any shape, but usually it takes the form of the physical body of the present or last incarnation as consciousness has gotten used to identifying itself with this form. It is called ‘astral’ body because it glitters like stars when observed clairvoyantly.

The Mental Body

The mental body allows us the experience of thoughts, thinking, and rational processes. The intellect. It still has a form, but not necessarily a human form. Its form is abstract and geometrical, although it can take on an apparent physical form to make oneself recognizable on the lower levels of existence.
The mental body cannot think by itself, as it does not have a consciousness by it own. It is more like an automatic body that stores information and transfers what it receives.

The mental body is sometimes divided into two: The lower mental body, which is the seat of practical thinking; The higher mental body, also called the causal body, which is the level of abstract thinking, and which contains the causes of everything that manifest in the lower bodies and worlds. It contains the knowledge of all past and present incarnations, and the roots of and possibilities of future incarnations. It is the gateway to universal knowledge and spiritual development. Although some authors make a distinction between the causal body and the spiritual body, there are probably one and the same.

The Spiritual Body

The spiritual body allows us to experience the highest forms of human manifestation. We could call it a cosmic body and it is close to divine realm.

It is not a real body as it is not subjected to form. On this level the ego ceases to exists. One is free of duality and its constructs. Here is the experience of oneness of everything that exists.

The spiritual body knows all things, lives in utmost purity, and gathers true, divine knowledge. Its energy vivifies and nourishes all the other bodies of man.

LAURIE BARRACO: “4 Symptoms Of An Overstimulated Pineal Gland And How To Soothe It”

Developing your intuition is an important part of personal development. Intuition helps us trust our decisions, keep us safe and protected and keeps us aligned with our purpose here on planet Earth.

A common issue many encounter as they are developing their third eye (intuitive center) is that they overstimulate their pineal gland and do not create a strong foundation for the energy to build upon. You can say that they are top heavy. The upper chakras are receiving a lot of attention through psychic development exercises.

It is equally as important for you to pay attention and stimulate your other 5 chakras — throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and root. The pineal gland becomes overstimulated as a result of these exercises.

Next, you begin to experience the 4 common symptoms of an overstimulated pineal gland. The pineal gland is located in the third eye center of the body. It helps us connect with other dimensions as well as our ability to predict the future.

4 symptoms of An Overstimulated Pineal Gland

  • Difficulty in concentrating, struggling to stay focused
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision, pressure in the eyes, sensitivity to light
  • Insomnia

What You Can Do To Soothe an Overstimulated Pineal Gland

  • Rub a grounding oil on your third eye. Patchouli, peppermint, sandalwood, chamomile, frankincense and or blue tansy will bring relief.
  • Cover your third eye with either a hat, bandana and or a bindi.
  • Avoid fluoride!
  • Placing a crystal like tiger’s eye, hematite, amethyst, or fluorite on your third eye will help soothe an overstimulated pineal gland.
  • Schedule a Reiki, cranio sacral healing session.
  • Hugging a tree will help you ground the energy into the Earth.
  • Eat root foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, dark chocolate, and or protein.
  • Do some yoga or breath work exercises. This will move the chi through your energy centers.
  • Avoid crowds for a few days.

Each and every one of us has psychic gifts and these gifts vary from person to person. We do ourselves a disservice when we compare our growth to others. Some people have clairvoyant abilities from birth and some of us have to work at it a little harder. Your psychic abilities will increase when you are good and ready. Being impatient and trying to rush the process will only cause you to be out of balance and experience some of the symptoms I have mentioned above.

Take your time, enjoy the process and let go of your expectations of how and when you will be able to achieve your goals. Your gifts will be online when the time is just right for you. Patience and trust are part of the development process.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Amazing Tree Energy — How Trees Help Us Heal”

Trees are the most spiritually advanced living beings on the Earth who are constantly in a meditative state and subtle energy is what they speak as a language.

Trees can help open your energy channel and help them reciprocate with healing their blockages. A relationship with the tree is a mutually beneficial one which needs to be nourished.

Healing Abilities Of A Tree

Taoist masters observe that trees not only have the power to convert Carbon Dioxide into Oxygen but they have the capacity to absorb any negative energy and convert into something useful. The trees are firmly rooted in the earth and the more firmly the trees are rooted into the earth, higher they reach the heavens above. Trees are the wisest absorbing the vital energies from the earth and universal forces from the higher dimensions.

Tree: Healer And Friend

As a spiritually advanced living being, they co-exist with nature and human beings. Trees are quite intelligent and they do have a sense of touch and feel and they have conscious emotions too. Trees have the ability to calm you down when you are under the weather and they can also end all your miseries — however, this relationship needs to build up.

Choose A Tree To Work With

Through the time in history, trees have been used for various healing and medicinal purposes and for this the bugger trees have always been the best choice, especially the Pine trees.

They radiate Chi, nourish the blood system, strengthen the nervous system and ensure longevity. These trees fill the soul and our spirit. Pines are the immortal trees. Although pine trees are mostly the best choice, many other trees or plants can be used. The larger trees contain the most energy. Among the most powerful are trees growing near running water. Some trees feel warmer or hotter than others; some feel cooler or colder than others.

Here are certain trees that have the energy to heal and you can choose one among them to work with:

1. Cypresses and cedars lower the temperature and feed Yin energy.

2. The Willows help fight the dry winds to eliminate excess moisture from the body, reduce blood pressure, and strengthen the urinary tract and bladder.

3. The Elms calm the mind and strengthen the stomach.

4. Maples fight the dry winds and help reduce the pain

5. Banyan trees (Indian Fig) purify your heart and help eliminate bodily moisture.

6. Cinnamon can remove the cold from the heart and the stomach

7. Fir trees help to absorb bruises to reduce sweating and first heal bone fractures.

8. Hawthorns help digestion, strengthen the intestine and fight low blood pressure.

9. Birches lower body temperature, eliminate body moisture and help detoxify the body.

10. The Prunes feed the spleen, the stomach, the pancreas and calm the mind.

Establishing A Communication With A Tree

To communicate with a Tree, you have to have the heart to understand they are as human in their emotions than you can believe. When you talk to a tree, you will notice that they respond. As you choose to begin working with a tree, you have to see to the fact that a tree is nothing but a counter part of you and they are all but trying to tell you to be humble and humane with them.

They have the power to unlock your intuition and help you in your spiritual journey.

ERIC RAINES: “Let’s talk for a minute about the parasitic construct…”

Let’s talk for a minute about the parasitic construct. The reason the world is the way that it is…

Most people not only do not have any idea such a thing even exists, those that have realized, often times do not even know what the basics are about.

Let’s say for instance, how do the etheric entities actually detect humans? How do they tap into our physical bodies and then manipulate them to block the flow, increase negative emotional resonance, damage meridians and organs as well as cause disease?

We look at our world as a solid, 3 dimensional construct, but this could not be further from the truth if you are any type of energetic consciousness, positive or negatively oriented.

If you were standing in line at a store 15 feet from someone you have never met, have no connection to, and are actively not making a connection to, something attached to you would have no idea whatsoever that person even exists. It would never “see” them to begin with.

In that same fashion, if you were thinking about your best friend, or anyone that you have a connection to, either negative or positive, the entity would then be able to “see” that person, regardless whether they are physically right next to you, or on the other side of the planet.

These entities are an incredibly dense, solid energetic object inside of a completely malleable, liquid reality. Not only do they not understand the concepts of 3 dimensional space, they need direct, solid lines of corrupted, stagnant and blocked energy to even exist inside of.

Now, that being said, the reason they are even here is because they need our negatively oriented emotional resonance. Energetically speaking, they need your Vital Life force weak and blocked, unable to flush pain, stagnancy or rotten chi through the body. This is the “hardness” that they need to “root” into. Without this blockage, it is like they are grabbing fistfuls of water. They have no way to even influence our reality unless there is this “hardness” to base their efforts to shut down light, increase dark emotional resonance, and block up the pulmonary/lymphatic systems.

Every time we do not actively engage in redirecting the negative emotions and thought loops in the body created by outside influences, we are slowing down our flow.

Joy, happiness, excitement, love, friendship, hope….everytime you feel these emotions, the internal world lights up. It becomes open, it feels clean and good. There is a natural smile on the face. Fear, anger, jealousy, shame, guilt, rage….every time you feel these emotions, the internal world shuts down. It becomes constricted, tight…painful, and there is a natural frown on the face.

This internal blockage that can easily be felt is the emotional resonance that is being fed upon.

Now let’s talk about how they move from person to person.

Have you ever had an event, a fight, a point in time that when you look back and remember, you get extremely angry, or fearful, or guilty?

These are emotional poisons that we actively engage in building into bigger and bigger blockages, but we build these through black magic, either directed at others, or ourselves.

When you think about someone you have “bad blood” with, just the act of thinking about that person means you are making an energetic connection. By feeling hate, that means you are using your energy flows to push extremely heavy, dark emotional resonances at them. The more this is done, the harder and more cemented in the etheric lines of connection become. The negatively oriented parasites stoke these fires in between people all over the world, and then actively use those energetic connections to infect people and travel.

This is their superhighway.

But here is the trick. Thinking about someone with love, compassion, empathy, joy or excitement works the exact same way. It is light magic. The more we pay attention internally to recognize when we are in the midst of a “hatefest” or a “pity party”, etc… to actively disengage from these lines of thought/feeling and to redirect ourselves into healthy thoughts/feelings, we actively dissolve this net of darkness interconnecting our reality.

The revolution will not be televised. We do not need to hang the bankers, or storm congress.

The battlefield has always been the hearts and minds of mankind. It is our job to turn it into a garden….this is not a place of war. It only appears so on the outside because so many of us are at war inside.

The universe is a reflection of exactly what is broadcasted out into it. If you are carrying around rage, pain, shame, fear or guilt from years and years worth of experiences, what are you subconsciously broadcasting out to the universe 95% of the time?

Loosh is a choice. Recognize your power. You are a child of the Creator. Be worthy of it.

From my heart to yours ❤
-Eric

ERIC RAINES: “Protection/Extraction Protocol Prep” (Guided Energetic Clearing)

This technique specifically induces chi flow up the spine and down through the arms and legs, and tingling/movement, or rushing sensations should be felt through the body, especially the arms if you have fairly decent flow in your body.  If you do not experience these sensations as you go through the breathing/visualization/movement of the technique, you have blockage in your body that is not allowing you to access your chi flow.  To clear blockage to enable chi flow, follow the tutorials in this video at least three times a week for two weeks.  Focus on breathing into all corners of your body, including the toes and fingers, and everything in between. Increase your repetitions of the Chi Kung movements up to 30-40 times for each session, and if you feel comfortable, do the Chi Kung twice a day.  Opening up your flow and clearing blockage will start to induce flow through your meridian system, but pinch points and interference from the etheric control systems might cause discomfort.  If, when going through this process of clearing out blockage to access your flow, you feel uncomfortable spots in your body such as buzzing, pain, pressure, burning, or movement sensations, breathe chi and life into the areas, gently coaxing the pain to smooth out and flow, opening the area where the discomfort is located, with an internal command/visualization of relax, open, and let go.

Once your chi flow is able to be felt, you can move it around at will in your body.  Breathing in chi feels much more meaningful, and the more you move and practice with it, the stronger and more sensitive you will become.  With this sensitivity, you can begin to explore sensation outside of your body by pushing your inner chi, out of the body into a bubble around you.  Intuitive sensing in the beginning is as simple as finding the areas inside and outside of you where the energy does not easily flow.  Because seeing the etheric control systems are fairly hard to do without lifting your frequency to be able to perceive them, you can easily find them simply by finding where the energy does not easily flow, or does not flow at all.  Expansion in this questing internally and externally is fairly easy with practice.  In the beginning, you only get hints and faint inflections of what might be or might not be, but the trick is to trust it. If you feel like something is blocking the flow, something IS blocking the flow.  The more you practice and stretch your awareness out, the sharper and more in tune your perception becomes.  Continuing with this steady practice, one day when you are pushing a wall of chi against a spot that is not moving, suddenly you see a black spot, resisting the flow in the light of your energy.  It might be small, as in the size of a quarter, or large as in the size of a house, but suddenly you can see it.  Once at this point, you can take your consciousness and project it like a flashlight, looking around you to see the world for what it truly is.  Shining a bright beam of chi illuminates the darkness around, exposing anything hiding, watching or interfering.

The energy I use in my work is always brilliant gold, like a piece of the sun.  When attuning your chi to a color, this is as simple as feeling the chi flow, and visualizing it whichever color you wish the energy to be.  My affinity for the brilliant gold comes from that naturally being the color of my energy after a series of energetic activations, but you can attune your chi to any color you wish.  I find gold is much stronger in removing implants, parasites and entities, simply for the fact that it contains all frequencies of light, both visible and invisible in it.  When we take a prism to break apart a beam of sunlight, we can see all the spectrums of light inside of that pure, golden beam, including all of the “invisible” light that we can not see.  Gold light is not a preference for any color, but a preference for all colors, seen and unseen, and it resonates the strongest against the pure black, darkness of the control grid, and is thus my method of choice for healing, protecting and extracting.
