seven-bodiesPhysical Body:   Note the tiny human figure in the bottom of the diagram … sadly, that figure depicts the present understanding many people have of Who He/She is–a physical body with a name.    The human ego tends to affected positively or negatively by the physical appearance of the body.    We spend untold amounts of time and money to beautify it.  But, do we truly know the purpose of our physical body?

According to Dr. Stone, our physical body is the  temporary  Temple of the Soul, the Soul’s vehicle for manifesting on Earth.  “The Soul is a vehicle on a higher plane for the manifestation of Spirit,  or the Monad.  A great many of you don’t realize the importance of helping the physical body to evolve along with the other bodies, for it is impossible for coarse, dense physical bodies to contact high vibrations.  The refinement of the physical body is essential.”

To attempt to work on evolving our other bodies without preparing the physical body can lead to illness due to “discrepancy in vibrational frequency.”  Dr. Stone suggests 7 steps for lifting the vibrations of the physical body:  1. physical fitness, 2. eating pure foods [see,  3. adequate sleep,  4. getting at least 10 to 20 minutes of sunshine daily [natural daylight lamps can be used if you must be indoors],  5. physical cleanliness, 6. limiting intake of  sugar and artificial stimulants, such as caffeine and drugs, and 7. regular play time.

I hope to include more information on lifting the vibrations of the lower bodies in Part 3.

Etheric Body:  “The etheric body is an exact replica of the physical body.  It is the archetype upon which the physical body is built.  It govern and conditions the physical body.   The function of the etheric body is store up the rays of radiant light and heat from the Sun and to transmit them via the spleen chakra to all parts of the physical body.

The etheric body is a web of fine interlacing nerve channels called nadia.  During incarnation, the network of nadia forms a barrier between the physical and astral planes.  If you have taken large amounts of drugs, you can break the etheric webbing which can cause you to be unprotected from lower astral energies.

The etheric body can also be called the energy battery of the physical body.  Congestion in part of the etheric body can lead to many forms of disease and lack of mental clarity.  The etheric body is vitalized and controlled by thoughts and can be bought into full activity by right thinking.  Most diseases the physical body suffers from have their roots in etheric and astral bodies.

Astral body:  “The astral body connects you to the astral plane, your dreams, and emotions.  If you are run by your astral body–by your feelings and desires–your astral body ends up running your conscious mind instead of your conscious mind having mastery over your emotions.

The astral body receives the impressions  of every passing desire  it contacts in the environment.  Every sound causes it to vibrate.  Your great need as a spiritual aspirant is to train your astral body to receive and register only those impressions which come from the Higher Self.  Your aim is to train the emotional body so that it will become still and clear as a mirror, so that i t reflects perfectly.  The words that describe the emotional body in its ideal state are still, serene, unruffled, quiet, at rest, clear.

When illusion and glamour have been overcome, the astral body fades out in the human consciousness.  There is no desire left for the separated self.  Ego disappears and you are then regarded as consisting of soul, mind, and brain within the physical body.”

Mental body:  “The Mental Body is associated with the Mental Plane and the concrete mind.  The refinement and development of  this body are the result of hard work and discrimination.  There is a great need for clear thinking, not only on subjects in which interest is aroused, but on all matters affecting your life and humanity.  Mental clarity means the ability to make thought forms out of the thought matter and utilize these thought forms to help humanity.  ‘

It is important to learn how to still the mental body so that thoughts from abstract levels and from the intuitional planes can find a receptive mind whereon they may inscribe themselves.

Two qualities should be developed above all else.  First, unshakable perseverance  and fortitude ….  Second, progress that is made without undue self-analysis.

The mental body remains clear when you maintain a clean mental diet.  Every thought coming from your own subconscious mind or from other people  should be examined to determine whether or not it is from God and whether or not it is truth or illusion.  If it is positive and of God, let it into your mind….  If it  is negative and not of God, deny it entrance into your mind.  It is the ongoing process of remaining conscious and vigilant and not functioning on automatic pilot that will keep your mental body clear.

Keeping your mental body clear will help to keep your emotional body, your etheric body, and physical body clear, for it is your thoughts that create your reality.  This point cannot be emphasized strongly enough!”

******Because I think much misunderstanding has occurred  as a result of the New Age teaching “Focus on the positive or good,” I would like to include an excerpt from Dr. David R. Hawkins book, Power VS Force:

“Looking at the list below we can clearly see that the lower energy levels of negative energy can really weigh us down. When we look at how the energy levels progress higher as we emotionalize love, joy, peace and enlightenment, it really tips the scale.

Our body absorbs whatever emotion we are feeling.

If we stay in a certain emotion for any length of time, it becomes the vibration frequency code combined with transforming consciousness realities we are generating or vibrating.

This is a list from Dr. David R. Hawkins book, Power VS Force. In his book he also describes each one in detail.  (

  • Shame … energy level 20
  • Guilt … energy level 30
  • Apathy …energy level 50
  • Grief …energy level 75
  • Fear … energy level 100
  • Desire … energy level 125
  • Anger … energy level 150
  • Pride …. energy level 175
  • Courage … energy level 200
  • Neutrality … energy level 250
  • Willingness … energy level 310
  • Acceptance … energy level 350
  • Reason … energy level 400
  • Love … energy level 500
  • Joy … energy level 540
  • Peace … energy level 600
  • Enlightenment … energy level 700 – 1000
  • Infinite Peace is beyond into pure joy into the emotion of natural blissful ecstasy.


Note:  As we create the Golden Age on Earth, it is imperative that we replace the worn out, non-functional segments (the negative) segments of our culture with the NEW and beneficial (the positive).  However, if we turn our  back on the negative segments and thereby demonstrate apathy (with a vibration frequency code of 50), we defeat ourselves.

On the other hand, if we see the negative segments and have the courage (VFC of 200) to analyze the difficulty with neutrality (VFC of 250) and demonstrate willingness (FVC of 310) to reason (VFC of 400) together and lovingly (VFC of 500) work together toward a positive solution or alternative, the end result will be joy (VFC of 540) over transforming a negative into a positive.  As the negative is transformed, the result will be peace (VFC of 600)!

We are victorious!  Our culture and its people are transformed!

Soul, or Causal Body:  The Soul, of Causal body exists on the Higher Mental Plane and its characteristic quality is the abstract mind.  The Casual body is the Temple of the Soul.  It is the storage home  of all good karma and virtue from all past lives and the present life.  The Causal Body is a collection of three permanent atoms enclosed in an envelope of mental essence.  The permanent atoms are recording devices for the physical, astral, and mental bodies.  These atoms also record karma….

As we incarnate repeatedly, we begin to build good karma and virtue into our Casual Body  and it begins to become a thing of rare beauty, containing within itself all the colors of the rainbow.  It is at the 4th Initiation, when we have achieved liberation from the wheel of rebirth, that the casual body is burned up and merges back into the Monad; the evolving soul extension then receives guidance from the Monad rather than from the Soul.  This is an important point to the initiation of a soul on the spiritual path.”

Buddhic Body:   Associated with the Buddhic Plane, its characteristic quality is Intuition.  After passing the 4th Initiaiion, we live in the Buddhic Body.

4th Initiation = The 4th INITIATION corresponds with Jesus’ Crucifixion. The cross symbolizes the spiritualizing of physical plane matter into everlasting life. The crucifixion, or 4th Initiation, is the crucifixion of our lower bodies.  (

Atmic Body:  Associated with the Atmic plane, the characteristic quality is the Spiritual Will.  This is the body we occupy after the 5th Initiation–Resurrection and Ascension.  The 5th INITIATION is illustrated by Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension. With the crucifixion of our 3rd and 4th dimensional consciousness and needs on the cross of matter, we stand ready to be resurrected into newness of life—to ascend into 5th dimensional consciousness.  (

Glorified Light Body:  The body we will occupy at the time of our Ascension–Ascension being the complete merger with the Monad, or the I AM PRESENCE on Earth.  At that time, our entire being, including the physical body, merges into Light.  It is the Lightbody that we will officially step into.  It is, in a sense, the wedding garment that you are creating day by day as you travel the path of initiation.  It is made of the Light that you create in your daily life.   This body is not complete until just before ascension.

The Monad:  “The Monad is a direct aspect of the force you know of as God [or I AM PRESENCE]. Your Monad supplies you with the life-force, love, and attention that you need to maintain your existence. Your Monad is ultimately responsible for your evolution, within the body of God. Your Monad watches and makes sure that all other aspects of your being work in harmony toward that one goal. Your Monad is you EONS from now, when you have evolved past being human, past being eternal, past being omnipotent. Your Monad is one shade away from God and is one aspect of God that makes you, your spirit, your higher-self, and your Soul uniquely you. Your Monad’s relationship with you is one of deep love and devotion. A love and devotion of the kind that can not be comprehended while being human. Your Monad’s love is like a Father’s love: that strong, protective, ever-forwardly moving force toward a journey’s end.”  (
