The etheric body, ether-body, æther body, a name given by neo-Theosophy to a supposed vital body propounded in esoteric philosophies as the first or lowest layer in the "human energy field" or aura. It is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body, to sustain it and connect it with "higher" bodies.
The English term "etheric" in this context seems to derive from the Theosophical writings of Madame Blavatsky, but its use was formalised by C.W. Leadbeater] and Annie Besant due to the elimination of Hindu terminology from the system of seven planes and bodies.
The classical element Aether of Platonic and Aristotlean physics continued in Victorian scientific proposals of a Luminiferous ether as well as the cognate chemical substance ether. The intended reference is therefore to some extremely rarefied matter, analogous in usage to the word "spirit" (originally "breath"). In selecting it as the term for a clearly-defined concept in an Indian-derived metaphysical system, the Theosophists aligned it with ideas such as the prana-maya-kosha (sheath made of prana, subtle breath or life-force) of Vedantic thought.
Linga sarira is a Sanskrit term for the invisible double of the human body, the etheric body or etheric double (or astral body in some Theosophical concepts). It is one of the seven principles of the human being, according to Theosophical philosophy.
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, often referred to the etheric body (Ätherleib or "Life Body") in association with the etheric formative forces and the evolution of man and the cosmos. According to him, it can be perceived by a person gifted with clairvoyance as being of "peach-blossom color".
Steiner considered the etheric reality or life principle as quite distinct from the physical material reality, being intermediate between the physical world and the astral or soul world. The etheric body can be characterised as the life force also present in the plant kingdom. It maintains the physical body's form until death. At that time, it separates from the physical body and the physical reverts to natural disintegration.
According to Max Heindel's Rosicrucian writings, the etheric body, composed of four ethers, is called the "Vital Body" since the ether is the way of ingress for vital force from the Sun and the field of agencies in nature which promote such vital activities as assimilation, growth, and propagation. It is an exact counterpart of our physical body, molecule for molecule, and organ for organ, but it is of the opposite polarity. It is slightly larger, extending about one and one-half inches beyond the periphery of the physical body.
The energy rising from the Earth is electrical in nature, and the energy from the cosmos is magnetic in nature. The interaction of the two creates an electromagnetic field which forms around the body as shown. Your body is electrical and magnetic. The magnetic energy of the grand female vortex fuels the magnetic aspect of your physical by flowing into the Ida channel. Flowing up from the Earth is the electrical energy which flows into your Pingala channel. However, electrical energy also enters the physical through the dark energy subtle system.
Within your pranic tube there are some specific energy channels that handle the energy coming up from the Earth and down from the universe. One of these channels is called the Ida. It is the channel into which the energy from the cosmos enters at the base of your medulla oblongata, the top of your spinal cord. This channel twists around your spine as it descends. It’s called the Ida, and is associated with the left side of your body and your left nostril. This channel is receiving the female energy of the cosmos, which has a negative charge, and is generally silver to white in colour. In ancient cultures it is associated with the moon archetype. It governs your parasympathetic nervous system.
The second channel is a channel into which the energy of the Earth enters at the base of your spine and it twists around it in an ascending manner. This channel is called the Pingala, and is associated with the right side of your body and your right nostril. This channel is receiving the male energy of the Earth, which has a positive charge, and is generally gold in colour. In ancient cultures, it's associated with the sun archetype. It governs your sympathetic nervous system.
It is these channels that are represented in the caduceus of western medicine. These two channels are twisting around your spine and around an energetic tube that runs its full length. This tube is called the Sushumna. Through this channel energy rises up your spine from your root chakra, which we’ll discuss in a moment. This specific energy is called the Kundalini energy, and is very powerful.
Your body is electrical and magnetic. I reviewed earlier how the magnetic energy of the grand female vortex fuels the magnetic aspect of your physical by flowing into the Ida channel. Flowing up from the Earth is the electrical energy which flows into your Pingala channel. However, electrical energy also enters the physical through the Chakra system. Your Acupuncture Meridian System is not an energy generation system but rather it’s an energy distribution system. Through this system electrical energy flows to every cell in your body. The Chinese understood that if the meridians carrying the energy to your cells or any group of cells were to become blocked, that portion of your body not receiving the energy flow would be compromised. Your body will heal itself by removing the block and enabling the natural electrical energy flow to that part of the body to allow it to re-establish itself.
Although we used the same MOSFET driver, PIP Snapshot showed that the classical coil does not change the ambient field although the voltage was several hundred thousand volts. But coil wound on a special Tesla's principles (according to which Tesla constructed his famous extra coil in Colorado Springs) definitely create a standing wave, possibly scalar in nature, and is columnate a flare of energy - green in colour - which is often associated with healing radiation (when it comes to bio-energy fields) in connection with balance and well-being ...
