Your etheric body plays an important role in how you feel and how you think. Your physical wellbeing and mental health are closely connected, and both rely heavily on the health and strength of your etheric body.

If it is weakened, then you probably aren’t feeling so great either. Spending a little time taking care of your etheric body by clearing and strengthening it could make a lifetime of difference.

What Is Etheric Body?


An aura is an electromagnetic energy field that surrounds us all. From humans to animals and even objects, everything has an aura of some sort.

The aura is what gives us that “vibe” we get from other people. When, without getting to know someone first, you just have “a feeling” about them, you’re actually reading their aura.

Some people, animals or things could have a negative aura or a positive aura. If you’re tuned into noticing it, you’re the type of person who can get a good feel for someone’s personality from just one conversation.

Layers of The Aura

Every aura is made up of 7 layers, each one with its own purpose and impact.

The innermost layer is your physical body and less than an inch outside of it is the etheric layer, the densest layer. Following the etheric layer is the emotional layer, mental layer, spiritual or etheric temple layer, the celestial body and finally the ketheric body.

These layers are also known as the subtle bodies and each one is connected to a corresponding chakra.

Etheric Body

The etheric body is the physical plane of the aura. Due to its close proximity, it is deeply connected to your physical body. It has ties to your physical health, all your bodily sensations, including pain and pleasure.

It is linked with the root chakra, which among other things, is associated with our basic human needs. The etheric body is considered to be responsible for sensations of hot and cold, and even hunger and thirst. Our physical bodies and etheric bodies are so closely connected that sometimes the etheric body is called a metaphysical twin.

Some spiritualists believe that each part of the physical body has an equal replica within the etheric layer, including all of the organs. Even if one is removed, the etheric version still exists to protect us.

The 5 senses are also the responsibility of the etheric body. It is the medium through which we experience the world. It receives the energies of the world around us and this affects our own energy.

The etheric body delivers energy to your physical body, be it positive or negative. Similarly, the physical body’s experiences affect your etheric body and the kind of energy it provides. The relationship is cyclical, if you do not take care of one, the other will suffer too, and the cycle will continue.

The emotional and mental layers are connected to the etheric layer too. This gives more meaning to the theory that our emotions and mental health deeply impact how our bodies feel.

Clearing the Etheric Body

Sometimes, the etheric body can become blocked and its functions will suffer for it. The connection between the etheric and the physical bodies is so deep that these blockages can heavily impact how we feel, some even suggest that our health is at risk.

If you haven’t been maintaining and improving your etheric body, then you might need to consider clearing before you can move on.

Blockages can be caused by anything that would typically harm the physical body. This could include a poor diet, lack of sleep, poor air quality and of course, stress. A lack of exercise will also lead to blockages as exercise is considered to be energetically cleansing.

Blockages can also be caused by the kind of energy your etheric body takes in. If you spend time in negative places with negative people, you’re going to pick that up too. Anxious thoughts have very low vibrations. The lower the vibration, the more blocking it is.

You can clear your etheric body by detoxing from the typical challenges to your physical health but be aware that a detox can lead to mental stress.

The best ways to clear your etheric body involve meditation and full-body scans. Whilst you meditate, take each body part in turn and visualize letting go of negativity. You can also visualize your aura becoming clearer.

Strengthening the Etheric Body

A strong etheric body is better able to withstand negative influences and remain positive. When your etheric layer is strong, your physical body is too. Just like strengthening the physical body, the best way to add strength to the etheric body is to stay on top of your health.

Make sure your diet is varied and healthy. Exercise regularly, in a way that makes you happy. Breathe fresh air. Most importantly, make sure your anxieties and stress are under control. If anxiety is the lowest liberating influence, you want as little of it as possible (easier said than done!).

Strengthen your etheric layer by accessing all sorts of natural energies. Energy from nature is naturally strengthening and the more different kinds of energy you expose your etheric body to, the better prepared it’ll be to protect you.

Your etheric body is valuable and should be cared for, just as it cares for you. Consider it a protective cushion that surrounds you. Build it strong, and it will keep you safe.

    Believe systems are very powerful so I say… go for what works.

    I do not particularly believe in an energy field that surrounds us with a aura.

    However this does not make it untrue.
    From my perspective it makes no difference.

    By spirit I mean inner motivational force.

    But not by any esoteric believe.

    I know a guy who had a garbage bag full of marijuana in his back seat.
    He was stopped by the police and they did not see the bag.

    He is amused now at the thought that at the time he thought God was protecting him. He said at the time he really believed it.

    So the question is that just because he believed it, that did not make it so.

    If a person is carrying drugs through an airport they will act differently as to whether they know it or it was planted without their knowledge.

    A person may act more bravely in a bad situation if they feel that they have outside help through some believe system.
    A lucky rabbits foot or even a believe in god.

    When in reality it was just them and what they believed

    We all act according to what we believe then we look for things to support our beliefs.

    People who believe in UFO’s see UFO’s, people who believe in ghosts see ghosts.

    People put meaning into all kinds of things but when we cut through all those believes what are we left with?

    We are left with a physical being with a physical brain that can only follow the law of physics.

    This is what we refer to as self empowerment.

    We give no credit for anything out side of ourselves.
    The only exception may be a creator who endow is with a brain that can understand such things through holy spirit.

    So where does this leave us?

    It leaves us with only one thing …our thoughts. All thoughts have power, all thoughts take us someplace to the good or to the bad. Depending on our belif systems.

    Once we get our life figured out we fall into the flow.

    We move through life with grace and ease.

    With the right thinking patterns. Eating, exercise, PMA positive mental attitude.

    We become complete. Tranquil, content, and sublime.

    We do and act as to what we think because our emotions spirit motivate us in the way we should go.

    While most think one thing and do another.

    This is not hypothetical as it is proven out in my case.

    There is no mystery in getting bad vibes it’s just intuition.

    Intuition is our seeing subtle incomplete patterns in the behavior of others. For someone may be too friendly and we have mistrust in our past.

    Everything can be explained in physical terms.

    When we get to the bottom of the rabbit hole; this is what we will find!
    As we stand between the infinite light and the infinite darkness.
    Things beyond our ability to know, and to understand.
    For the finite mind, cannot know the infinite!
    It Is beyond our vision and comprehension. 
    What we can know is love, which is:
    Kindness, Goodness, Patience, Forgiveness, Truth and things such as these. 
    For things such as these, are the very purpose of our existence and are the leadings of the spirit of God.
    God does not do this for us but only point us in the right direction through his holy spirit.

    We must be self empowered
    First, we must be complete in altruistic love, then we can have an infinite eternity to explore the infinite.
    But for now we must understand the concept of developing this altruistic love in all things, and all actions, even of mind and heart by understanding these from the soul or our very being.
