How to Improve the Health of Your Energy Body

The state of your etheric body depends on many factors. It relies on a healthy physical body, a clean conscience, and preferably some sort of spiritual practice that takes energy into the body. It is not uncommon for us to neglect one or more of these areas. As a result, the etheric body becomes dirty and congested. We usually don’t notice it until the “spiritual sickness” has manifested in our physical body as a seemingly unexplainable pain in our body.

I felt I should write about this because of a recent issue I had with congested energy in my body. The muscles in my back locked up and I woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain around my solar plexus. I ended up going to the ER, thinking something must have happened, but all they told me was I had too much tension. So what was it? Stress? Poor lifestyle choices? A curse?

Having studied Pranic Healing, I concluded there must have been a block in either my third (solar plexus) chakra or fourth (heart)  chakra. This prevented energy from properly flowing throughout my body. When the energy became congested in my etheric body, it manifested as muscular tension in my physical body.

(Disclaimer: I am trained in Pranic Healing and Holistic Living so I feel comfortable in diagnosing myself. However, please do not use this article to self diagnose. There are many factors involved in treating bodily pains and illness.)

So how does one keep the etheric body healthy?

Of the many factors involved, I feel the easiest and most direct is taking care of the physical body. Naturally, proper exercise and nutrition are involved in this, but other important factors would be getting enough sunlight, spending time in nature, or making sure you get adequate rest each night. You may have heard, “the body is [the] temple of the Holy Spirit” (Corinthians 6:19-20) or “clean spirits don’t dwell in dirty spaces”. These things refer not only to our living space but the health of our bodies.

Clairvoyants have observed the auras of healthy and unhealthy individuals. In a healthy person, the aura looks like an egg shell. It is smooth, clear,  and has an oval shape to it. In an unhealthy person, the aura appears disfigured (energy is uneven), it has a foggy or dirty appearance to it, and some cases even have holes where energy is leaking out. Today, non-clairvoyant people are able to use Kirlian photography to verify these claims.

When I say “proper exercise”, I want to highlight the importance of stretching. Flexibility is the precursor to strength and stability. If my tendons and ligaments are tight, I lose range of motion and open myself up to injury (lack of stability). Additionally, If I have poor range of motion I can’t fully express my muscular density, reducing my strength. Metaphysically, my meridian lines are constricted, restricting the flow of energy throughout my body. When energy flows easily throughout the body, the aura is healthier and more stable, giving it the smooth oval shape designed to keep your energy in.

Nutrition is important for several reasons. However, this is not a health & diet blog, so I won’t be discussing things like proteins and carbohydrates. What I want to talk about here are biophotons. Every cell has light particles in it known as biophotons (living light). When food is grown organically, the biophotons of those cells are coherent. When it is grown conventionally with GMO, potent fertilizers, and in low quality soil, these same biophotons become disrupted and incoherent.

Biophotons inform your cells how to organize themselves through information held inside the light. One could even argue the nutrients in the food is just the third dimensional form of this light signature, as quantum physics is starting to suggest light comes from a higher dimensional plane. Whenever possible, eat natural, organic foods made by Mother Earth. This will give your body the proper knowledge to be healthy, regardless of the perspective you choose to hold.

Now, how does sunlight help the body? Sunlight is one of several ways we absorb energy into our body. Physiologically, it helps us produce vitamin D, which is very important to maintaining health and happiness. It is not uncommon for people who live in cloudy areas like Seattle, Washington to be more prone to seasonal depression. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed our bodies only become sick when our immune system is weakened by poor choices. From this perspective, “flu season” is year round, but it is only during the winter months when people stop going outside and gorge themselves on holiday feasts, do our bodies become weak enough for us to become sick. 

Our bodies thrive on sunlight. Not just for the vitamin D but for the light it feeds our etheric body. Every ancient culture had some form of sun worship because they knew it gave life to the plants which fed their society. Sunlight gives life to our bodies. This life energy is called different things in different cultures, Prana (Indian), Chi (Chinese), Pneuma (Greek/Roman), Mana (Polynesian), Ruah (Hebrew). Even scientists acknowledge this life energy whether they know it or not. It typically is called heat. Regardless of the name, we know that every living thing needs some degree of this life energy if it is going to live. 

Although, a bit of mindfulness must be used when absorbing energy from the Sun. Bring water, possibly sunscreen (lotion, not spray on) and make sure to have access to shade. Sunlight is a very potent form of energy. Even children are familiar with excess exposure to sunlight: sunburn. In more extreme cases you can die from exposure or heat stroke, but I don’t think any of my readers are venturing into the desert unprepared. 

What of nature? Nature is important for stabilizing our energy field through electromagnetic frequencies (EMF). Everything in our universe has been shown to have a unique EMF signature. From planets, to rocks, to computers, to dogs. In nature, these signatures are coherent and can improve health. It is even believed we evolved in tandem with the Earth’s EMF signature. However, man-made objects, most commonly electronics, have an incoherent EMF. The more synthetic it is, the more likely the EMF will disrupt your own EMF signature. As a result, when we spend all day inside office buildings, vehicles and our homes, we are receiving an excessive amount of disorganized and confusing EMF. Getting out in nature puts us around harmonious EMF which have healing effects on our bodies. The more we are in nature, the more our bodies come in alignment with what is natural. 

The last thing I want to discuss before wrapping up is rest. It’s not uncommon for people to cut the amount of sleep they have in order to accomplish other things they desire. Although, by doing this they perpetuate their problems and diminish their ability to accomplish their goals. Sleep is something that even today, is still perplexing to the science community. We know it is important. We know that every living thing, excluding plant life, has some form of sleep. But what does it do?

The most mundane explanation would be to view it as a “recharge” period. This is scientifically proven. Our brain shifts into a different wavelength and this seems to energize us for the coming hours. Before we invented light bulbs, sleeping kept us safe during the night as we are less capable without proper vision. So sleeping could be seen as taking advantage of all 24 hours of the day. However, many cultures believe it to be something much more than that.

When we sleep, and more importantly, dream, we open ourselves up to a new reality. We are simultaneously conscious and unconscious. It is believed that when we dream our spirit is able to temporarily leave the body without the body dying. Sleep is the cousin of Death, after all. Astral projectors and lucid dreamers commonly take advantage of this period to seek knowledge that could not be obtained through normal means.

Another belief surrounding sleep is we actually absorb divine energy at a faster rate. Divine energy flows into our body through a portal above our head called the Ka or Crown Chakra, depending on the cultural background. When sleeping or meditating this portal opens up and light pours down into our bodies. This rejuvenates us. Some ancient cultures like Yogis and Taoists have developed spiritual practices which focus on opening this portal to receive more light. Taoism specifically focused on obtaining immortality through the constant downpour of light energy. Now I wouldn’t suggest you dedicate your life to seeing if this is true or not, but many devoted practitioners maintain their youth even in old age. Mantak Chia is one such practitioner who I have studied under. 

Our physical and etheric bodies are interconnected. If one gets sick the other gets sick. Taking care of the physical body is an easy way to take care of your etheric body.

Requisites of Resilience

The last several weeks have been quite difficult for me. As a result, I have not been writing articles. Now that I am through the experience, I am able to reflect on it and gain insight to my behavior and the spiritual implications. So I found it fitting that my returning article should be about resiliency. What is it? How does one develop it? What does it mean on our spiritual journey?

What does it mean to be “resilient”?

The short answer is “to keep moving forward when the situation becomes difficult”, but really it is so much more than that. If we push forward without awareness then chances are we will end up exhausted and still not have reached our goals. It is an illusion to think someone can work towards their goals all hours of the day and never take any breaks. 

In some cases, the individual is truly immersed in their passion, in which case they will be revitalized, but eventually everyone takes a break. Whether it be relaxing on the weekends, taking a vacation or daily meditation. Our bodies and mind need to have rest. Everyone has different levels of energy and how much they can commit to a task. The first part of being resilient is learning when you need to be gentle with yourself and rest.

Moving forward with our plans, we often feel blindsided when something unexpected happens. Everyone handles these situations differently. If you are anything like me (I’m looking at you, fellow Earth signs) then you enjoy life to stick to the schedule you set up. There are also people who see the unexpected as opportunities. Unfortunately for some, the latter perspective is more in line with how life works. If everything in life followed a routine then it would undoubtedly become boring and predictable. Even for those of us who like those things. 

So then, the second part of resiliency is adaptability. Things will not go our way more often than they will, so be grateful when it all goes according to plan. Learning to bend to circumstances but break under them is what allows us to keep moving forward or bounce back quicker than most. Some things in life just plain suck, but seeing the silver lining in those events helps us to become grateful more quickly. 

Of course, it’s easier to type that on a blog and than practice it in real life. My suggestion is to practice a reversal of perspective. Whenever something “bad” happens, ask yourself: “How could this be good?” “What blessings am I not focusing on?” “When I get through this situation, how will I look back on it?” These can help you shift your perspective. 

Finally, there is the action step of being resilient: charging ahead. Life will test you. It’s not because the universe is conspiring against you or because someone woke up and decided they were going to specifically make your life hell. Although, it may feel like that sometimes. 

In actuality, these types of situations are pushing us to new heights. We may be wanting to do something but not feel capable or are too comfortable with where we’re at. Then something drastic happens and changes our situation. We are forced out of our comfort zone because we had been unwilling to go there ourselves. It’s like your mom ripping off the bed sheets so you can go to school. It doesn’t mean you are unable to set an alarm and wake up yourself, but it does make the situation more shocking and uncomfortable. Regardless, you’re awake now and have to get ready for school. 

When there is no safety net. No plan B. No way to escape. It summons a strength in us like no other. We become capable of charging headlong towards our goals. We are put in a position to look at what we really want in life.

These tests can be some of the most crucial as they have the ability to sculpt our self image. If we return to our comfort zone, like crawling back into bed, we only postpone the inevitable. We still have to go to school. We increase the chances of being late and we have an even more pissed off mother to deal with. If we do this enough times, our grades will suffer and we may not feel capable of graduating. However, if we meet life where life is, like waking up on time. Things will run more smoothly. Our mother won’t rip the sheets off because we set an alarm. We don’t feel stressed because we have plenty of time to complete our morning routine. We will be more successful in school because we’re properly prepared to meet the challenges of the day. 

The tricky part is learning which quality of resilience is the right one for the current situation. If we charge ahead when we should be resting, we will burn ourselves out. Sometimes we need to charge ahead regardless of the circumstances. Sometimes the circumstances are stronger than us and if we don’t adapt to them we will break under the pressure. It’s something that changes with each person, in each situation.

One thing is for certain. If you develop your inner resilience, things will get back to being “good”. A close friend of mine always says “life gives us lessons and blessin’s”. One of them we can appreciate and enjoy. The other one you’re going to learn from whether you want to or not. What I’ve come to find out is the lessons become the blessings. The more I learn about life and stay open to the experience, the more blessings I realize I already have. 

You see, life is all about seeing what is already there. It is programmed in us that a “blessing” is a new car, new house, or new relationship. In reality, blessings all come from a state of mind. A poor man can be grateful for a pair of shoes and a rich man can be upset he doesn’t have enough closet space. How I look at my life determines what is a blessing and what isn’t.

To wrap up the article, I want to say thank you to my readers. I hope you had a happy holiday season and I wish you best of luck in 2021. I am in the process of finally releasing videos on the website and Youtube so be on the lookout for those.

As always, if you want a private lesson in the metaphysical, check out my book-a-lesson tab or just shoot me an email from the contact page and we will work something out. I’ve gotten exhausted with the formalities recently.

To all my fellows, may your seeking be fruitful and your findings bountiful!
