The Etheric Body

The Etheric Body

Words such as “ether” or “ethereal” immediately conjure up images of a world beyond the clouds, of starlit spaces filled with heavenly light and of Divinity as well as a deep sense of peace. What if ether was not just up there, but within ourselves too?
In reality, we ourselves have an etheric body. In Sanskrit, this subtle entity is referred to as “linga sarira”. The etheric body is clairvoyantly seen as a double or a twin of the physical body.


Did You Know You have a Twin?

Our etheric body is a bioplasmic and luminous in nature and surrounds the physical body while interpenetrating it. Clairvoyants are gifted with sight beyond what our physical eyes can see and are able to view this etheric double which actually appears to have two hands, two legs, two eyes, so on and so forth just like our physical bodies.


What does the word bioplasmic mean? The word “bioplasm” is an amalgamation of two words: bio, meaning life and plasma, referring to the fourth state of matter. When matter in the gaseous state has been ionized and possesses negative and positive charged particles, it may be termed as plasma. This, however, is very different from blood plasma.


The etheric body is thus a living aura or energy body that is constituted of subtle matter that is invisible to the naked eye. Kirlian photography is regarded as scientific proof of the existence of our etheric body. Kirlian photographs allow for viewing, observing and analyzing the energy field or the etheric body that surrounds our physical forms.

It is through the etheric body that prana or life energy can bee absorbed into and distributed through the physical body. The etheric body thus serves as a channel for life energy to flow into the visible physical body we possess and are so attached to.


Your Etheric Body and Prana

The flow of prana throughout the etheric body is facilitated by fine bioplasmic meridians the workings of which are much like the workings of the blood vessels in the physical body. Yogic terminology refers to these channels or meridians as ‘nadis’. These nadis are further classified into major and minor nadis. Just like we possess blood vessels and capillaries of varied importance and function in our tangible body, there is order in our etheric body as well. Prana (chi) thus provides nourishment to and invigorates the physical body in its totality through the effective functioning of the channels in the etheric body.


The etheric body and the physical body share an intimate bond of interdependence and what affects one, affects the other. Master Choa Kok Sui, after several years of detailed study, research and analysis, provided his students with much information about the nature and functioning of spiritual energy and the etheric body. This process of inter-related functioning works in accordance with the Law of Correspondence. Just as sickness in the etheric body is a precursor to sickness in the physical body, healing the etheric body heals the ailments in the physical body. The etheric body is thus a tetra-dimensional energy entity that serves as an integral counterpart of the physical body.

Lakshmi Mantra

Lakshmi Gayatri Mantra

In Hindu mythology Goddess Lakshmi has been described as the goddess of wealth and prosperity. As legend goes, she showers her follower with money and makes them wealthy. In different parts of India, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped on a regular basis in every household and also by businessmen and entrepreneurs for success.

What are the secrets of prosperity?

The secret to prosperity is generosity and non-stealing. “Generosity brings good luck” – Master Choa Kok Sui. Time and again Master has explained that generosity and non-stealing results in good karma.

He has said, “Stealing generates poverty karma.When a person takes what does not belong to him, the energy goes down, the sizes of the chakras are reduced.”

Service and tithing should be practiced on a regular basis. Giving is connected with the Heart Chakra or Anahata Chakra. But giving is not enough; we must become receptive to let the divine blessings to reach us.

“If you tithe, you must also be willing to receive the divine blessing of prosperity. If you will not receive it, your capacity to give will be adversely affected.”Master Choa Kok Sui.

What Impact does Giving have on our Heart Chakra?

Our Heart Chakra or Anahata Chakra is center for love. When we practice giving, our Chakra opens up. Lord Vishnu is the god of love. Therefore, when you love and share, when you practice giving, when you do service and tithing regularly, you gain prosperity. That is why Goddess Lakshmi is the wife of Lord Vishnu. With regular practice of sharing, tithing and service we increase our love towards humanity. These acts will shower us with her blessings. Lord Vishnu is the Preserver, a manifestation of Love. The result is Goddess Lakshmi, abundance and prosperity.

chakra colours health

Chakra Colours

It is no secret that colours have a strong bearing on our mood. We talk about it often even without realizing it. For example, we describe someone else or ourselves as feeling blue, we wish others to be in the pink of health, we have a tendency to associate red with love, gray with gloom and so on. Psychological studies have gone as far as to suggest that even the colours of the medication people take, affect the performance of the medicines! That said, wouldn’t it be great if the use of medication could be reduced or avoided altogether? That is precisely what Pranic Healing can help with though it would be good to remember that this energy healing system developed by Master Choa Kok Sui is not aimed to replace conventional medicine but rather meant to complement it. How your body works depends on your chakras and your chakra colours are of great significance.

What’s Your Favourite Colour Today?

Is orange your new black? Do you love a cool blue during summer and a warm, rich brown or purple during winter? If you have felt drawn towards particular colours during particular seasons or during certain specific periods in your life, you are not alone. Your colour preferences shift and evolve as you evolve. Pranic Healing theories talk of the different chakra colours that affect the functioning of your chakras and through them the total functioning of your body. Whether you can relate to particular colours because of the condition of the chakras in your body, has not been researched much as of now. What if your chakra colours make you like or dislike certain colours around you?

Healthy Colours = Healthy Chakras = Happy You

Clairvoyants are able to see your chakra colours and your aura colours, their size, shape and level of health. It is through clairvoyance that it was revealed that every chakra in the human body contains certain colours. You can take a look at our article, What Are Your Chakra Colours Trying to Tell You?, to know about your chakra colours. When a chakra in your body is contaminated with dirty negative energy, the chakra colours are also (clairvoyantly) seen to change. Unhealthy or depleted chakras are often seen to be faint in colour and filled with gray. When that happens, you might develop one or more types of discomfort related to your affected chakra. Abnormalities in your chakra colours serve as signs that your chakras are not exactly healthy. Intervention in terms of Chakra healing and Aura cleansing can be very helpful in providing you with the relief that you require. The use of colour pranas is also an effective and rapid energy-healing technique that aids cleansing and energizing your chakras.
Your chakra colours foretell your health. Keep yourself energized with fresh and vibrant pranic energy to avoid pranic depletion.

spleen chakra victory

Victory Power Through Your Spleen Chakra

If you have read about Prana and the functions of Pranic Energy necessary for sustaining life and present all around us, you would be aware that each of us has the ability to absorb this amazing life force from the natural sources available to us. But did you know that your Spleen chakra is a major entry point of prana into your system? That is precisely why the Spleen chakra is also called the Prana Chakra!


How does your Spleen Chakra Feed your Other Chakras?

The prana you imbibe through your Spleen chakra is distributed to all the other major chakras of your body. What this chakra does is that it ingests air prana (white in colour) and breaks it down into red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet colour pranas which can they be absorbed by all the other chakras. The Spleen chakra thus works like a prism that disperses white light into its constituents.

In his book, Universal and Kabbalistic Chakra Meditation on the Lord’s Prayer, Master Choa Kok Sui explains the relation of the Spleen chakra to the line Give us this day our daily bread in the Lord’s Prayer. This is interesting because the Spleen chakra literally provides daily bread for our body in the form of Pranic Energy. A healthy Spleen chakra ensures that there is sufficient fresh Prana in your body so that all your other major 11 chakras work in unison.

C.W. Leadbeater, explains how the Spleen chakra is responsible for subdividing and distributing the vitality that is available from the Sun. He describes the Spleen chakra as having 6 petals with different colours and as radiant and luminous as the Sun.

How can your Spleen Chakra make you more Powerful?

In the Kabbalistic teachings, mostly with regard to the chakras and the inverted tree of life,Netzach is a term that serves as a counterpart of the Spleen chakra. Netzach literally means power or victory and if you think about it, that is what the Spleen chakra helps you gain. There is no possibility of success or victory without the right amount of energy.

A contaminated Spleen chakra manifests as rheumatoid arthritis, blood ailments and chronic fatigue syndrome. How will you be able to put in all the effort required to pursue success and power if you lack in pranic energy? Lack in physical energy often leads to psychological energy depletion and depression.

Besides, your Spleen chakra also helps you to be victorious over diseases by energizing your physical spleen and controlling the quality of blood. A healthy Spleen chakra results in a healthy immune system.

Life is never without its fair share of hassles. These vicissitudes do help you to evolve into a stronger person but you need to be strong enough to face them in the first place. Pranic energy from the Spleen chakra floods you with the vitality you require to tackle all the challenges life throws your way, to overcome all obstacles and finally to emerge victorious.
