This is about blocking a painful body sensation or thought. One useful technique is that of substitution. Here are examples …
ON BLOCKING A PAINFUL BODY SENSATION
Let’s say you fell and scratched your knee. You wash it off and put on antibiotic cream and a bandaid, but it still hurts.
If you place the fingers of one hand around a wrist of the other hand, and apply gentle pressure, concentrating on the sensation of pressure, then you may find, as I did in my youth, that it blocks the sensation of pain in your scratched knee. Of course, be careful not to cut off the blood circulation in the encircled wrist; just keep a gentle pressure on for a few minutes.
What has happened? By placing your Awareness on the physical sensation of pressure in the wrist, you blot out Awareness of the stinging knee.
You can do the same by placing Awareness on other physical sensations: Sight, sound, taste, hearing, as well as the sense of touch explained in the above example.
ON BLOCKING A PAINFUL THOUGHT
Let’s say you are either having a painful thought to do with your desire elemental or your gut brain, over and over again, or you are clair hearing someone else’s painful, repeating thought along the same lines. These are emanations of the unconscious thought cloud of the world, which are difficult to deal with because of the Soul wounding they express. You would like to block these painful thoughts.
The emotion-laden thoughts generated by your gut brain … or stuck to your gut brain as the winds of the great sea of unconscious thought in the world waft their way through your energy fields … are but one form of energy in the energy bodies in your energy field or ‘aura’.
If you can concentrate your Awareness on one of the other forms of energy in your energy field, or on one of the physical sensations mentioned in the first subheading above, then you may be able to block painful thoughts. So I feel it to be, through my own experience.
THE PERSONAL AND TRANSPERSONAL SUBTLE ENERGY BODIES OF THE HUMAN AURIC FIELD
Priorly I did a good deal of reading on the human subtle and mental bodies. As there was more disagreement than agreement amongst the various intuitives who described the subtle and mental bodies, I grappled with the incongruities, and eventually came up with a working list that helps integrate my notion of our four minds with other people’s notions of the subtle bodies, and my own experience of these through yoga over the years. The complete schema is here …

A portion of the schema … that involving subtle energies or ‘bodies’ in the human personal and transpersonal auric field … is shown, in abbreviated form, below. The subtle energies of the human auric field are intermixed with, and also beyond, the physical body, and also intermixed with each other …
PERSONAL SUBTLE BODIES AND BRIDGES
Lower Mental Body (Subconscious Mind) — gut brain
- 1. Etheric Body (Etheric Double or Etheric Net) — The physical blueprint, which connects the physical body to the subtle bodies. This is associated with the Plane of Forces, and houses six kinds of energy: electricity, magnetism, kundalini, prana, gravity, and fohat (or will power).
- 2. Emotional Body — feeling filled, unconscious or subconscious thoughts of the desire elemental and gut brain
- 3. Vital Body (Pranic Body) — Personal Chakra 3 (Navel Point)
- 4. ASTRAL BRIDGE (Astral Body) — Astral Body – the energy of the heart and of love; bridge between the Lower Mental Body and the Higher Mental Body
Higher Mental Body (Intellect) — thoughts of the brain
- 5. Etheric Template — where sound creates or transforms matter — language of sound
- 6. Celestial Body (Cosmic mind) — language of Light
- 7. Causal Body (Ketheric Template, Buddhic or Christ Consciousness) — where we become aware of cause and effect though our many timelines and dimensions in the multidimensional Now. These are the energies sometimes visualized as unlocking the door to our many incarnations.
TRANSPERSONAL SUBTLE BODIES, BRIDGES AND CHAKRAS
- 8. SOUL BRIDGE (Causal Template) — Body of Light
- 9. Soul (Atma)
- 10. Monad (Awareness, Eternal Now)
- 11. Logos – Solar body (Light – love – joy)
- 12. BRIDGE TO FORMLESSNESS
As well as personal and transpersonal subtle bodies, there are also subpersonal subtle bodies. My schema for our physical and subtle bodies, our chakras, and our four minds, is here …
ENERGY EMANATING FROM THE PERSONAL SUBTLE BODIES
According to my reading and partly also through my own intuition and spiritual practice, I offer here my understanding of some of the forms of energy emanating from the personal subtle auric bodies, as well as from the Soul Bridge, which is the first transpersonal subtle body …
There is the rude emotional energy of the desire elemental or gut brain, numbers 1-3 above. This is the energy associated with the reptilian brain in our human Triune Brain. Sometimes it is called the V— D— mental filter, or the feral instincts. It is this noospheric energy from which we increasingly sentient human beings most often seek relief in this phase of the Awakening.
Of the five kinds of energy in the Etheric Body, number 1 above, there are ways to work with each of these so as to divert the Awareness from the emanations of the unconscious thought cloud of the world. More on this below.
The Emotional Body , number 2 above, houses desire, without which no action is accomplished in the physical and astral realms
The Vital Body (Pranic Body), number 3 above, is our source of fohat, or will power.
The astral body, shown in number 4 above, is the seat of pure emotion, such as the emotion of devotion generated by bhakti yoga, or the emotion of maternal love. This has very little thought attached to it.
Then there is analytical, philosophical, logical, or scientific thought from the neocortex, associated with numbers 5-7 above. This kind of noospheric energy has very little emotion attached to it.
From the Etheric Template, number 5 above, houses the language of sound as a tool to heal the Body of Light
The Celestial Body (Cosmic mind), number 6 above, houses the language of light as a tool to heal the Body of Light
The Causal Body (Ketheric Template, Buddhic or Christ Consciousness), number 7 above, houses the weaving of Light into astral time and space for a chosen alternate reality (a timeline and a dimension)
Pure Light, sometimes diamond white, sometimes golden, sometimes in beautiful rainbow hues, emanates from the SOUL BRIDGE (Causal Template), number 8 above.
Chakras numbers 9-12 above are, to my feeling, above the human personal auric field, as they transcend the Awareness incarnation.
According to my reading and in some cases according to my own intuition, there are other energies associated with the subtle bodies; I have characterized them here …

PLACING AWARENESS ON A CHAKRA OR ITS ASSOCIATED ENDOCRINE GLAND AS A WAY OF DEVELOPING AWARENESS OF THE CORRESPONDING SUBTLE BODY
Note that each ‘personal’ subtle body traditionally is associated with one of the seven chakras, oldstyle. These ‘personal’ chakras are listed below, together with the endocrine glands with which they are associated …
- basal chakra … adrenal glands
- sacral (spleen or sex) chakra … ovaries and testicles
- navel point … pancreas
- heart chakra … heart as an endocrine gland
- high heart … thymus gland
- throat chakra … thyroid and parathyroid glands
- third-eye point … pituitary gland
- crown chakra … pineal gland
Thus it seems logical that by concentrating Awareness on any of these chakras, a person could develop sensitivity to the energies of their corresponding subtle body.
According to my intuition and also through my yogic practice, I feel that might be done …
- by placing attention on the endocrine gland to do with the chakra,
- or by doing a yoga set to perfect the chakra,
- or by meditating on a chakra mandala, similar to those below …

WAYS TO DIVERT AWARENESS FROM PAINFUL THOUGHTS TO OTHER ENERGIES
To divert the Awareness from painful thoughts, a person can move to Awareness of some other portion of their Soul field. As mentioned in the first subsection, a person can concentrate on a physical sensation.
Beyond the body that many feel to be all that they are, lie the panoply of occult energies now being revealed to an increasingly clair gifted humankind as Earth awakens to the Fifth Dimension.
Here are ways to concentrate the Awareness on the plane of forces energies. instead of on the sensation of pain. Most are from the field of kundalini yoga as taught by 3HO and Yogi Bhajan, whose teachings I studied and practiced for about 10 years quite some while ago …
HOW TO CONCENTRATE AWARENESS ON THE PLANE OF FORCES ENERGIES

I have found very little written about harnessing the force of gravity. However, some say that, in the Fifth Dimension, levitation … which, in its purest state, derives from complete surrender to the will of God … shall be commonplace. Meantime, here are some ways I have come up with to play with gravity as a diversion from the nuisance effect of the Subconscious and Unconscious Thought Clouds of the World …
I find that using this mantra while standing or walking greatly increases my Awareness of gravity, and my groundedness …

In addition, I feel that groundedness might be ramped up by stimulating the acupressure points on the soles of the feet; for instance, by doing jumping jacks or practicing on a trampoline, or by doing foot massage. Of these, foot massage is one of my favorite techniques.
Fohat or Will Power
I have read that fohat or will power is the power that links spirit to matter and shapes matter, as a potter (Spirit, whether Divine or human) shapes matter through will power from moment to moment. It is fohat through which we move our muscles to walk, for instance. (3)
To harness your will power, I suggest chanting ‘Har’ from the navel point or else practicing stretch pose.
Chanting ‘Har’ from the navel point is a technique I practiced as my favorite mantra for about five years, and found to be very helpful. See …

PLACING AWARENESS ON LIGHT OR HEAT
In addition there are Light and heat, as possible energies to meditate on.
Light is treated under “Body of Light,” below.
Heat is really covered under will power and kundalini, both of which create heat. In addition, here is a yoga set to create Tapa, or spiritual heat …

PLACING AWARENESS ON THE HIGHER MENTAL BODY
To Block the Left Brain
As a blocking technique using the right brain of the Higher Mental Body, try reading, doing a crossword puzzle, coloring, or doing artwork.
To Master the Mind
To develop mastery of mind, I have had good success using Judy Satori’s Mastery of Mind mp3s. If you would like to try these, you can go to her website … https://www.ascensionlibrary.org/ … and search the shopping area for the mp3s using the search term: Alpha Cent or Mastery of Mind … Judy Satori’s website has seen quite a changeup; I am not sure whether this information still might be found there, but if not, maybe you could contact her to find out if it is available.
PLACING AWARENESS ON THE ASTRAL BRIDGE (ASTRAL BODY)
To use the astral body energy as a blocking agent, try listening to your favorite kirtan (that is, sacred music) group on youtube. My preference is for Christian hymns, such as those of Chris Tomlin (among others) …

To develop the ability to heal the body through the language of sound, I like to use Tom Kenyon’s sound offerings … www.tomkenyon.com … For me, these transform the physical form through sound.

Or, through intuition I offer this technique: Go outside, and sit or stand on the ground on a sunny day. It is alright to have a sun hat on, or to stand in partial shade. Concentrate on the sunlight interacting with the shade.

Thanks for your comment.
Dear Kalla, I am sorry; I do not know of such a book. I have bought as many Theosophical Society books as I could find regarding the astral realm, but unfortunately many offer second-hand advice gleaned from other people’s accounts of this realm. What little I have on the topic in my website “Awakening with Planet Earth” consists of first-hand accounts from my personal experience (unless I credit someone else in a blog). What little clair gifts I have I am please to say are uninfluenced by mind-altering drugs or foods. In that way, I feel, the clair gifts may be offered without the dark influence that inevitably taints drug-induced clair states. At least you will get what I clairly see and hear directly from me; but astral hearing and vision are, as you may agree, not at all like physical hearing and vision. I find it difficult to translate these experiences of the astral plane into physical terms. As, I feel, you also may take such astral voyages, perhaps you will offer me advice on writing about them?
Thank you for your comment. Best wishes to you and to the Theosophical Society of India.
