Healing the spiritual body

I approached my illness from the perspective of each level of our being—physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Although the physical body is the one we are most familiar with, these other components of our being have their own “bodies” through which they function. Thus, we also have an emotional body, a mental body, and an etheric or spiritual body (also known as the memory body). These bodies are not our permanent reality but the “coats of skins” that we wear for this life. They are interpenetrating forcefields, the vehicles that we occupy to experience life on planet Earth.

Those with spiritual sight tell us that illness first begins in the etheric body. It can often be seen there before it cycles through the mental body and the emotional body. It finally enters the physical body as the last stage in the process. So in essence, by the time an illness becomes physical, it has most likely been with us a long time. If illness can be healed in any of the other three bodies before it reaches the physical body, then the physical disease may be totally averted before it ever manifests. This should be the goal for all of us. To do this we need to be able to work on health at a spiritual level as well as a physical one.

It is in the etheric body that the blueprint for life is written and stored. The other three bodies try to follow this blueprint from the master architect as well as they possibly can. So, it all starts here with the etheric body.

Spiritual tools are the key to healing the etheric body. We can give the etheric body what it needs by giving devotion and adoration to the source of life within us each day. We can realize that all healing ultimately comes from the God, the creator of all life (by whatever name we might know this universal principle). I think of the divine physician Jesus and his saints in heaven.

We can consciously connect with that source of light and healing. Give glory and praise to God for his grace in our lives. Spend at least a few minutes each day meditating, praying, or communing with your divine source, the mighty Presence of God above you, and send love to that God-source. Many times you may even feel the waves of love on the return current—or in the events of your life and of the lives of the people around you.

We can send light and healing energy into the etheric body just as we do into the physical body for physical healing, into the emotional body for healing of emotional problems and wounds, and into the mental body for healing of our mind and psychology. Specifically, we can direct the violet light and the healing green light into the etheric body in order to restore the original, perfect pattern for all of the four lower bodies.
