Most people consider that the material world and the physical body are the only existing reality, because only these things can be seen through the rational mind with the physical senses and they occurred. However, observing a sensitized human eye can sense many energy structures, energy movements, shapes and colors in and around the physical body.
If you are just someone who accepts the material body as reality, reflect on what happens with energy, the power of life that gives life to the physical body and gives it a feeling and means of expression when that body dies, it simply transforms. The power behind the material aspect of the body, with all its functions and capabilities, is a complex energy system without which the physical body could not exist. This energy system consists of three basic components.
Subtle body or energetic body.
The chakras or energy centers.
The nadis or energy channels.
In this system, the nadis represent a type of subtle network of arteries. The term nadis is Sanskrit and refers to a pipe, a vessel or a vein. The function of a nadis is to transport prana or vital energy through the subtle energy system of man.
The Sanskrit word Prana can be translated as “absolute energy”. In the Chinese and Japanese realms, this universal life energy is called “chi”, “ki” or “qi”. It is the main source of all forms of expression that is air, which is one of the many ways in which we take prana, including breathing.
The level of consciousness of each living being depends on the frequencies of prana, which it can register and store. Animals have lower frequencies than at the beginning of their development.
The nadis of an energetic body are connected through the chakras with the nadis of the adjacent energetic body. Some ancient Indian and Tibetan texts mention 72,000 Nadis; other archaic scriptures speak of 350000 nadis. The most important of these energy channels are called sushumna, ida and pingala and will be analyzed in detail in the following articles. Chinese and Japanese speak of a similar system of energy channels called meridians.
The chakras, on the other hand, function as receivers, transformers and distributors of various forms of prana. Through the nadis, the chakras capture the vital energy of the subtle energetic bodies of man, his environment, the cosmos and the basis of all manifestations, and convert them into frequencies whose different domains are physical or which the subtle bodies need. For this energetic system, the human is like that in a constant exchange with the forces that act in different levels of the environment, the universe and the creation.
Since the chakras work in close interaction with the energetic bodies, the properties and functions of these bodies are described in this chapter. The individual chakras are described in detail in seven chapters, each dedicated to a single chakra.
As a general rule, there would be four energy bodies.
- The etheric body.
- The emotional or astral body.
- The mental body.
- The spiritual or causal body.
Each of these bodies has its own fundamental frequency. The etheric body closest to the physical body vibrates at the lowest frequency. The astral and mental bodies have higher frequencies and the spiritual body has the higher frequency.
Each of these bodies resembles an energetic dance within its individual frequency, and as human development increases, the respective frequencies increase accordingly. These bodies are the carriers of consciousness at their vibrational levels. With the increase of the frequency of life, they provide humans with superior forms of vital energy, sensations and consciousness.
The different energy bodies are not separated. They penetrate each other and continue to oscillate in their frequency range. A person with the ability to see them can distinguish them if their vision adapts to their sphere. If he wants to see the astral body, he has to adjust his vision of the astral sphere; If you want to see the mental body, you have to adapt your vision to the mental realm. ad in
