PHYSICAL AND SUBTLE BODIES OF HUMANKIND
As you may know, we humans have more than one body. That we have a physical body, which is clearly evident. Also, and very importantly at this stage of the Awakening, humans have other bodies (that is, energy fields). These are known as the ‘subtle bodies’ because we must develop our clair senses before we can perceive them.
This process of Awakening that’s taking place on Earth right now is like this: The Incoming Light of the Pleiades’ Photon Belt, in which Earth will be bathed for the next 2000 years, is awakening our clair senses. That is why so many humans are now awakening to the phenomena of the astral plane.
Traditionally, the physical and subtle bodies, the ‘Vehicles of the Soul’, have been called:
- physical body
- etheric double (aka etheric body or etheric net)
- astral body
- lower mental body
- higher mental body, and
- causal body
Here is a good description of the purpose of each of the Vehicles of the Soul:
“Diagram of the Theosophical Subtle Bodies” (1)
Note that the above chart is rudimentary, representing only a portion of the First Triad and the beginning of the Second Triad of the Self. There remain yet more subtle bodies: two more in the Second Triad, and three in the Third Triad; see http://www.esotericscience.org/diagrams/6f-Human-Being.jpg
Etheric Double. Also missing in the above description is the Etheric Double, which provides Prana, or Vital Energy, to the physical body, and also acts as a bridge between the physical consciousness and the astral body. The missing description should stand between the description of the physical body and that of the astral body in the illustration above.
Right now, the Etheric Double of humankind is undergoing change which will very soon allow us to sense the Astral Body, which heretofore has carried the negative emotions each of us has repressed in order to conform to Societal Expectations.
SOCIETAL EXPECTATIONS AND REPRESSION OF EMOTIONS ON THE ASTRAL PLANE
It is the bind-down power of the act of repression of our socially unacceptable emotions that creates the hypnotic, ‘fall-asleep’ quality of the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World, and allows the interplay of forces and dark astral entities, through black magic and mind control, with our own gut-brains, yogicly known as the ‘lower triangle’ comprising the first three chakras oldstyle. The neurons lining the intestine gather these collective unconscious thoughts from the astral plane, which traverse the bridge of the Etheric Double and deposit them in the physical body, where, if not cleared, they create physical disease.
It is the repressed, unconscious quality of our astral matter till now, that has made of our astral bodies what would be known in psychology as the Shadow of the Personality. It is the Shadow nature of our Astral Vehicles that has caused Earth to spiral down into a state of low consciousness, the nature of which can clearly be delineated through perusal of the mass media. Further, the nightmare-like Astral Stories we’ve been hearing on the Astral Plane since 2012 are in fact the unconscious Shadow Plays that have created the misqualified energies circling around and through Earth today.
Through the Incoming Light, each person’s Shadow has been changing. Thus in aggregate, the Astral Stories are becoming lighter and brighter in quality.
VEHICLES OF THE SOUL: INTERPENETRATING ENERGIES
The Vehicles of the Soul are actually interpenetrating energies, all taking part in the physical expression of our human form, and also extending beyond our form on the physical plane, like this:

COMPOSITION OF THE ASTRAL AND LOWER MENTAL BODIES
According to Theosophical texts, a person’s astral body consists of ‘astral matter’ and of ‘elemental essence’.
Astral Matter. Of astral matter there are 7 grades, and 7 subgrades within each grade, consisting of energies ranging from coarse to very fine. The nature of a person’s own astral matter depends on the emotions they choose with their will power to create in themselves.
The relative coarseness of one’s astral matter determines what one experiences on the astral plane … whether one dwells, for instance, in the hellworlds or the heavenworlds, or in the purgatory worlds that lie between them. This, I feel, is the reason why the Ascension teachers unanimously agree on the importance of creating the positive emotions of gratitude, appreciation, joy, peacefulness, and love in one’s life. For the experience of these emotions will allow the astral body to awaken to the heaven worlds.
Elemental Essence. This is also called the ‘Desire Elemental‘. Theosophy warns about giving in to the earthy desires of that portion of our astral bodies known as the desire elemental. My feeling is, the desire elemental has very good work to do in service to humanity. Through arousing in us earthly desires, it lifts us up from what might otherwise be utmost despair at the gruellingly painful experiences of the physical life on earth. It grounds us, keeps our physical bodies safe, provides us with emotional exclamation points known as ‘physical orgasm’ but also capable … for the Spiritual Adept who wishes to be a benefactor to humankind … of re-terraforming the astral plane in the swiftest lightning strokes of joy and compassion for All. The desire elemental, through its work with the third chakra oldstyle, also gives us the opportunity to make a timeline plan of action for New Life on New Earth.
Lower Mental Body. You may have heard of the words kama and manas? ‘Kama’ means ‘desire’ and ‘manas’ means ‘thought’. The lower mental body is a combination of kama and manas, of desire (or emotion) and thought. These two (along with the astral body, I feel) create the human personality. (See http://hpb.theosophy.org.nz/sites/hpb.theosophy.org.nz/files/images/Upper-lower-pyramid.jpg and also http://hpb.narod.ru/Images/WhenWeDieA.gif )
WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE ASTRAL REALM RIGHT NOW
Separation of Astral Body from the Lower Mental Body. The astral chatter that I’ve been hearing in the last few years is, in fact, apparently talk that is going on in the Astral Realm amongst our astral bodies, unbeknownst to our lower mental bodies. The cause of this gap in consciousness is the Shadow nature of the Astral Realm activity (see above).
The very mechanism of Repression of Emotions lies in the fact that our will creates a barrier between our lower mental body and our astral body. The lower mental body contains thoughts and emotions that support our Social Mask. The astral body contains thoughts and emotions that do not support that mask, and which are relegated to our deep unconscious minds.
In the early 2000’s, before the great clearing got well underway, I experienced other people’s astral forms as very menacing, dark figures bent on rape, torture, mutilation, and killing. This was especially angstifying for me because I recognized these rampaging Shadows of the Personality as fueled by the repressed emotions of family and friends.
- Every night, family and friends were releasing pent-up hostilities by venturing out in astral forma and giving each other life-threatening illnesses on the astral plane, in the form of curses and black magic spells.
- Every night, and all day long too through daydreams, my spiritual acquaintances, who strive to adhere to the strictest guidelines of saintly life, were astrally leaping out of their chaste physical forms and raping the random stranger on the astral plane … this applied to celibate spiritual men and women much more than to the average householder.
- The more spiritual the physical life of a person on Earth, I saw with utmost concern, the more antisocial their daydreaming and night-dreaming astral body would behave.
I came to see this was the way with life in the third dimension … in the physical reality, there is equal Light and Shadow. Where there is great Light in the physical body and in the lower mental body, there will be great Shadow in the astral body.
Now, in 2016, going on four years after the December 2012 Shift, the landscape of the Astral Real is greatly changed:
- The archons are gone.
- The great devils and demons are few and far between.
- Satan himself seems to be out of a gig, as black magic and mind control have lost sway on this our planet.
- The rulers of the City Fiefdoms have been read their rights and received their plights.
- The City Domes have recently gone down, allowing the Devas back into the Cities of Earth
- And the astral bodies of all I encounter on the Astral Plane have lost the Deep Shadowiness. Few and far between are the forays into astral mischief. Concomitant with the lightening and brightening of Earth through the Incoming Light, the physical and subtle bodies of every human have lightened up an amazing amount.
- And in the months to come, more and more light will be streaming into our beloved Planet, and will be made freely available for the transformation of all her children.
Christ’s Life. In the rare case … like that of Christ … where the physical and all the subtle bodies expressed the Light of the Soul, then that must needs be compensated for by the great tragedy and Shadow of his Crucifixion. So that in Christ’s earthly life,
- The Light has stood for 2000 years as a guidepost for humankind,
- And the Crucifixion as an explanation of the nature of the third dimension.
- And Christ’s Ascension forecast for us this very time that is upon us … the time of our own triumph over the Shadow Play.
Astral Body Now Uniting with Lower Mental Body. Right now, I’m experiencing a separate personality as my astral body, which begins to express itself as clair chat and vision whenever I repress an emotion. From this I gather that this manifestation of the astral body will more and more unite with my lower mental body as soon as my lower mental body feels safe to avoid repressing emotions that are socially unacceptable.
Thankfully, at this moment my astral personality is mostly pretty light-hearted and upbeat, but also very uninhibited, with no concern for societal expectations, and mercurial in temperament. She can waltz from delight to upset in a nanosecond.
Because of her uninhibited, naive aspect, she is attracting the attention of men on the astral plane. The tenor of the conversation of the men is very different from hers … it proceeds from logic, within the framework of cause-and-effect, and with regard for the concerns of worldly life, including sexuality, politics, economics, the legal system, the world of business, the ecosystem, and so on.
MALE MENTAL FILTERS
The main mental filters I see in place for male members of humankind right now, and for these men who are conversing with my astral body, are the Manhood Mental Filter, the Patriarchal Domination Mental Filter, and the Global Awakening Mental Filter.
Manhood Mental Filter. What this means, from a practical standpoint, is that their ability to achieve orgasm whenever they want to, and to daydream of having sex all day, is the fundament of their life here on Earth. Without this notion, they feel life would be worth nothing. As men are always saying on the astral plane, “My life would has no quality” and “My life is not worth living” when I contemplate life without the Manhood Mental Filter. I’m guessing, too, that it is this mental filter that makes erectile dysfunction issues so difficult for men to deal with from an emotional standpoint.
To me, the Manhood Mental Filter consists of an unthinking, unconscious ‘going with’ the principles of the desire elemental. As the Incoming Light provides upgrades to the astral body, I feel men’s consciousness will begin to discard this tenet all over Earth, and they will begin to throw serious effort into the spiritual training of their desire elementals.
This work, I note, can be accomplished all in a nonce, as the desire elemental is eager to please and quick to learn. Here’s the technique: I say to my desire elemental, “I love you, I love you, I love you!” If it objects, I say, with enthusiasm, “I hear you!” Then I repeat “I love you, I love you, I love you!” with joyful enthusiasm, until it’s convinced of my sincerity. Then I say, “Here’s what I want you to do ….” and I come up with a very short plan of action. Keeping in mind that desire elementals, while exceedingly enthusiastic, can only remember one instruction, or at the very most, two instructions. I reinforce this instruction from time to time. And change up any time I like.
Patriarchal Mental Filter. This comprises, very succinctly, the astral forms of the men trying to boss my astral form around. The last time this happened … in a group gathering, to my mortification … my astral form got into a shoving and kicking match with the man in question, who was also at the gathering … it was like two 2-year-olds in a sandbox. Totally mortifying, from the standpoint of my societal-expectation emotional-repression childhood learning experiences.
Global Awakening Mental Filter. This is the notion, most prevalent among men, and to a lesser extent among women, that action in the world to right the very evident wrongs of politics, economics, the legal system, the world of business, the ecosystem, and so on, takes precedence over our own need to clear and transform our own subtle bodies. In truth, all of the changes in terms of social justice and righting the world that are so desperately needed for Gaia will take place when … and only when … our own personal Awakening has been accomplished.
To look to the world and say, “This corporation must be chastised” or “That legislator must be convinced to change his policy” or even “Contrails are ruining our skies” … these mass media thoughts cause in our astral bodies negative feelings that drag us down into the hellworlds and make it impossible for the work of clearing and transformation to take place. They are a way of projecting onto other people the state of or own astral matter, which when we have these thoughts, is bound to be dense and murky.
Keeping in mind that the state of matter on the astral plane filters down into and creates our physical reality, It will be clear that any thought that causes us worry and suffering must be avoided. The thing to do is to gravitate toward those activities, thoughts, and emotions that bring joy and satisfaction into our lives.
MY CURRENT CLAIR EXPERIENCE OF MY SUBTLE BODIES
I mentioned above the personality characteristics my astral body is currently expressing, and how it appears to be gaining awareness and in the process of merging with my lower mental body. Here’s more on my recent clair experience of my astral body:
How I’ve Been Experiencing the Presence of My Astral Body. Today I’ve been experiencing her conversations with them as slight rhythmic modulations in the EMF of my crown chakra.
But when I’m in an expanded state of consciousness in a group meditation, as in the “Patriarchal Mental Filter” described above, I experience a field of awareness about 50 feet in radius, filled with golden light, and the experience of the astral body as a being 1 foot to 6 feet high, and 20 to 50 feet above and beyond my physical self.
Sometimes she speaks without my awareness, and this I consider to be astral energies of an unconscious, desire-elemental nature. If I listen, I can hear her, and in this way I can throw conscious astral matter into my desire-elemental matter. Already, she has become very sentient, compared to years gone by.
I can, by dint of will power, force her to say what I want, but this makes her very unhappy. From this I gather that the astral body clearing taking place during the Awakening has its own timing and sequence of milestone events, and that I must wait for the proper time, and the proper message from the Incoming Light, for total integration of my astral body and my lower mental body to occur.
My Experience of the Transpersonal Chakras. As I’ve noticed misqualified energies playing out in transpersonal chakras 8 through 10, I gather that I’m currently clearing the higher astral matter in my astral body. This feels to me like incursions of the male mental filters mentioned above, into the Transpersonal Chakras. My feeling is, I myself will download the appropriate upgrades to counter my own conditioning regarding the Manhood Mental Filter and the Patriarchal Domination Mental Filter. Keeping in mind that these mental filters aren’t just something that men have, and bother women with. The unconscious agreement of women to these mental filters has a lot to do with their perpetuation.
SHOULD ASTRAL EVIDENCE BE USED IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS, MEDICINE AND PSYCHIATRY?
The short answer is: No. The astral body is composed of a different kind of energy from the physical body and the lower mental body. Further, the Astral Realm is currently in the process of clearing on Earth, as are our astral bodies. Still now today, there is much Shadow of the Personality in our astral bodies, as there is unconscious elemental essence on the astral plane. The Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World still galumphs along through Earth’s noosphere.
What this means is, our clair experiences can be a greatly exaggerated, emotional version of:
- Something that has taken place in the Physical Realm.
- Or, something that is taking place … and in this case the clair experience carries great knock-your-socks-off emotional emphasis, which distills down into most likely a less spine-tingling physical version of the astral dream.
- Or, something that may gather enough umph to take place in the future.
Because of where we are in the process of clearing of the astral plane right now … which is to say, incomplete and only partly there … what happens when we bring astral evidence to bear on the physical reality is an overlay of the Shadow World, and a ramp-up of Soul Wounding on Earth, as the dormant samskaras of humans are touched to fiery physical action by the close impingement of the Astral Realm on the Physical Realm. So right now, I’d say:
As more and more conscious light is thrown on the astral plane, and more and more humans become aware of their own astral bodies, the Shadow of the Personality … for each of us … is thrown into stark relief. Any of our goings-on that don’t meet Societal Expectations will, in most discomfiting fashion, become apparent to our friends and family.
Disclosure isn’t just about big corporations, or world politics, or world religions. It’s about each one of us, baring and clearing the Shadow of our own Personality.
What does it behoove us to take the most painful secrets of our friends and family:
- to a court of law,
- to our Bishop or Pope with thoughts of censure or excommunication,
- to a Western medical establishment,
- or to a psychiatric institute?
It behooves us not at all.
Law Enforcement and the Justice System; priests, pastors, rabbis and imams; medical doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists … all these consist of people who are also going through the process of clearing their own Shadow. Why not give them the grace and liberty to relax and enjoy life, to sit back and go through their own process of clearing? If we don’t free them for their own transformation, how can we expect them to accomplish this?
Likewise, if we don’t give the marginalized members of our society, and those that don’t ‘fit the mold’ a chance transform … along with everybody else … how can we expect their transformation to take place.
But if we do step back from the causal realm, from crime and punishment, war and peace, from economic reform and the plight of the world … and simply inhale and exhale the joy of creation … then before long, all will be clear, for each sacred human life.
On Forgiveness. Christ’s message to humankind was absolutely right on for us today, during the Awakening. He said:
“But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” –Matthew 6:15 (KJV) (4)
So, now taking it from the top: Right now, today, all humankind’s trespasses are coming up for everyone to see. What should we do? It would behoove us to forgive them. Let them go. Give them our blessing. Don’t take them to court. There’s a higher court at hand; that court is God’s and his alone. Very clearly, Christ states: Let us forgive everyone.
In that way, we will be able to receive forgiveness from Christ for our own trespasses. Which are coming up very clearly for everyone else to see, and to pass Christ’s test of offering forgiveness to us, for our own failings.
And what if our friends and neighbors don’t offer us forgiveness? Then we must align our own will, our own heart, and our own small mind, with the Great Will and Heart and Mind of God, and through Christ’s grace, ask for forgiveness. When that forgiveness is ours, how can we be lacking in anything?
On Loving Our Enemies. Christ said, Love your neighbor as yourself. This is not so very hard to do, as it’s in our best interests to stay on good terms with our neighbors. And by extension, those in our family and social groups … our local tribes, as it were.
But what about our enemies … the scapegoat of the family, the person who is on the outs with the social groups we belong to, the person of another social status, or culture, or race, or nationality, whom we may perceive to be ‘bad’ simply because they are different from us? What of those who really are evil, in terms of human principles of communal life? Those who break every law … the depraved, the lawless, the predators, the Genghis Khans of modern life?
Resolution of this kind of enmity is also in the offing, though I might wince away from it. How can it be otherwise, now that telepathy is worldwide? And so, in a wider sense than love for father and mother, or family, or one’s neighbor, or even of one’s spiritual principles, we’re in a position right now, today, to align with God, who “is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil” :
27 “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
29 “And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 “Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
31 “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
32 “For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
33 “And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
34 “And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
36 “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.” –Luke 6:27-36 (KJV) (4)
Like a father to his children, God is kind to all humans. If we want to get through the Awakening in the most expedient manner, in the most comfortable fashion, again here’s the message: Align with God. Be kind like him. Be merciful like him. Allow the most culpable of humans to make their own peace with God.
The time is very short, and the very best arrangements have been made by God, with the help of all the Angelic Realm, to shepherd each and every one of us through this process. Let us stand aside and allow Christ do his work of judgment and of forgiveness on behalf of his Father, through the Holy Spirit.
The Light and the Darkness. I’ve spoken some about the clearing of the Shadow of the Personality from our astral bodies. Christ speaks to this work as well:
“I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” –John 8:12 (KJV) (4)
If we take his hand, and follow his precepts, we will make it through this difficult time of Transition. There is a very great deal for each of us to look forward to, as All arise to Christ Consciousness.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

(3) “Relationship of the Chakras to the Physical Body and the Subtle Bodies.” I rather like this illustration: http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/VNeE5ebKZvLZfweq4l379A87493
I note that it classifies:
- chakras 1 and 2 oldstyle as relating to the physical body (my guess is this part is mistaken; it really has more to do with the astral body … see below)
- chakras 3 and 4 oldstyle as relating to the astral (emotional) body. From this I’d gather that the heart, chakra 4, has more astral body emphasis than I’d thought previously.
- the high heart (thymus, a new chakra, not pictured) and the throat chakra (5th chakra oldstyle) as relating to the lower mental body … I’ve noticed the more emotional quality of telepathy through the throat chakra, and this is why I like the classification of this chakra as belonging to the lower mental body, which carries human personality
- the third eyepoint (6th chakra oldstyle) as relating to the causal body (and to yet higher bodies)
- and the crown chakra (7th chakra oldstyle) and transpersonal chakras (new chakras 8-10, so far) as relating to the higher subtle bodies. It is these higher subtle bodies of which humankind will be becoming aware as the process of Awakening continues. When we are able to sense chakras 8 through 10, then we will also perhaps be able to tune into our Unity Body and Lower and Higher Spiritual Body (according to http://www.esotericscience.org/diagrams/6f-Human-Being.jpg ) … or perhaps into the Intuitional (Buddhic). Spiritual (Nirvanic) and Monadic planes (according to http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/VNeE5ebKZvLZfweq4l379A87493 ). With time, as more and more of us attain this awareness, humankind will no doubt reach greater agreement on the qualities of the transpersonal chakras and of our higher subtle bodies.
