Introduction to the Spiritual Body
A basic introduction to the different aspects of the spiritual body, also known as the energetic body or the auric or human energy field. Remember though, that "love is truly all we need" and a personal relationship with God, because everything comes out of that relationship, including an understanding of life. We are shown all that we need by God Our Father and Jesus including an understanding of our world and all that it contains.
Here is a photo of a healthy and a weak or sick energetic body/spiritual body/aura.
If we are spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically healthy, our spiritual body will be clear, vibrant and strong. A relationship with God, love, joy, nutritious food, healthy relationships with others, giving and helping others, among other things, can strengthen our spiritual and other bodies and protect us from things that would harm us such as negative energies or demonic forces. Love especially, will help us build strong hearts, minds and bodies. If we let Father and Jesus help us and guide us, they will show us all that we need to know.
If we are unhealthy spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically, our spiritual body could be weak. Things such as eating unhealthy foods, trauma, fear, anger, depression and other similar things can weaken our spiritual body. So can different "sins" like the seven deadly sins and breaking The 10 commandments. Some of the things that weaken our spiritual body can cause "holes" or tears in the energetic fabric which then allows us to be influenced or attacked by spiritual entities or demonic forces which are always trying to take us away from Father and Jesus.
We all have light and darkness in our energetic bodies to some extent, some more than others, and we all have some kind of sin, so let us try to look at all of this with eyes of love and compassion but with firmness and spiritual awareness of God's will for His children as well as the very real danger to our hearts and souls.
All of our sins can have a negative influence upon our spiritual bodies but so can negative or heavy emotions such as grief, anger, depression, jealously, lust and many other things. Each may affect a different energy center in the body. For example, relationship issues can affect the second chakra where the reproductive organs are located and the heart. Grief tends to lodge in the lungs which can affect breathing and cause things like asthma or COPD. Anger likes to lodge in the liver but will also affect the root chakra and the heart chakra. Anger IS very damaging to the heart. Anger and fear can also affect blood chemistry, metabolism and the glands in negative ways. Fear especially, will not build a strong body or heart. It will contribute to weak muscles and a weak heart. Love builds strong bodies and strong hearts.
Everything we do affects all of our bodies but abortion and homosexuality/gender confusion (mostly from past lives/experiences but which can rise as a current temptation or it can be the result of sexual abuse, experimentation and other factors) especially affect the root chakra where our life force is based. These factors weaken our legs and diminish our ability to stand before God if present and not repented for and allow negative entities or demonic forces to be able to influence our life force and the mind/brain. Those are some reasons that those two things are so dangerous to us. Both are warned against for good reasons but let us look to how to help others heal these wounds from a place of love, support and compassion. Both of these things choose the self over God or the life of another for whatever reasons are present in the life of a person.
Homosexuality/gender confusion and identify issues are not understood very well and if looked at from the point of view of past lives and other spiritual factors, can very much be resolved and healed, especially if a person has a relationship with Father and with Jesus who will show them all they need to know and answer all their questions. God makes us the way we are based upon our past choices but if we do not understand how past life issues can affect us in this life and others, it can be difficult to come to an understanding of how homosexuality and gender issues happen and why they are warned against in the Bible.
Depression can be like a holding in of way too many negative energies and not having enough healthy or positive energies or love in a person's life to balance them out. It can be a "stuffing" of the self or a stuffing down of anger, trauma, pain, unspoken words, broken hearts and many other things that are weighing a person down or clogging up the bodies. Most things start in the energetic body and then manifest later in the physical body. Our thoughts are very powerful and things like pain or grief can weigh us down. If we are unable to move through things and stuff them down or deny them, pretty soon there might be so much that we are "depressed" or heavy. Lots of reasons here for depression as each person is unique but generally too much heavy stuff in the bodies for one reason or another. These energies can be removed and the depression can go with it. ... Lots of things to talk about here in another place.
Our spiritual/energetic body is much like our physical body in that what we feed it will either strengthen or weaken it. We can look at what we are feeding ourselves in what we are watching on television, what we are reading, what we are listening to, how we spend our time, what are our relationships like, do we give and have love and support in life, do we have a spiritual life and other things.
