The Ten Bodies
If you understand that you are Ten Bodies, and you are aware of those Ten Bodies, and you keep them in balance, the whole universe will be in balance with you ~Yogi Bhajan
We know we have a physical body; we can see it, touch it, and feel it. We also have other bodies that are equally real, if not more so.
In addition to the physical body, we have three mental bodies and six energy bodies. You can visualize your various bodies as layers of clothing, the physical body being the overcoat you wear for a lifetime.
When all ten bodies are under your direction, it produces a state of integrated support –a sense you don’t have to do it all on your own, a consciousness that allows you to move gracefully through difficult situations, and an increased ability to recognize the good in all.
First Body: Soul Body : the part of you connected to the infinite
Second Body: Negative (protective) Mind : identifies possible dangers or shortcomings in a situation
Third Body: Positive (Expansive) Mind : inspires you by showing the best possible results in any situation
Fourth Body: Neutral (Meditative) Mind : takes information from both Negative and Positive Minds and decides on the best course of action using unbiased, intuitive knowledge
Fifth Body: Physical Body : the vehicle through which you participate fully on Earth
Sixth Body: Arcline : your halo, the nucleus of the aura
Seventh Body: Auric Body : the electromagnetic field that surrounds your body
Eighth Body: Pranic Body : through the breath, continuously brings the life force and energy into your system
Ninth Body: Subtle Body : helps you see beyond the immediate realties of life to the sublime universal play that lies beyond
Tenth Body: Radiant Body : gives spiritual royalty and radiance
