The Law of One, Book II, Session 47
Questioner: In our esoteric literature numerous bodies are listed.
I have listed here the physical body, the etheric, the emotional, the astral.
Can you tell me if this listing is the proper number, and can you tell me the uses and purposes and effects etc. of each of these and any other bodies that may be in our mind/body/spirit complex?
Ra: I am Ra. To answer your query fully would be the work of many sessions such as this one, for the interrelationships of the various bodies and each body’s effects in various situations is an enormous study.
However, we shall begin by referring your minds back to the spectrum of true colors and the usage of this understanding in grasping the various densities of your octave.
We have the number seven repeated from the macrocosm to the microcosm in structure and experience.
Therefore, it would only be expected that there would be seven basic bodies which we would perhaps be most lucid by stating as red-ray body, etc.
However, we are aware that you wish to correspond these bodies mentioned with the color rays.
This will be confusing, for various teachers have offered their teach/learning understanding in various terms.
Thus one may name a subtle body one thing and another find a different name.
The red-ray body
is your chemical body.
However, it is not the body which you have as clothing in the physical.
It is the unconstructed material of the body, the elemental body without form.
This basic unformed material body is important to understand for there are healings which may be carried out by the simple understanding of the elements present in the physical vehicle.
The orange-ray body
is the physical body complex.
This body complex is still not the body you inhabit but rather the body formed without selfawareness, the body in the womb before the spirit/mind complex enters.
This body may live without the inhabitation of the mind and spirit complexes.
However, it seldom does so.
The yellow-ray body
is your physical vehicle which you know of at this time and in which you experience catalyst.
This body has the mind/body/spirit characteristics and is equal to the physical illusion, as you have called it.
The green-ray body
is that body which may be seen in séance when what you call ectoplasm is furnished.
This is a lighter body packed more densely with life.
You may call this the astral body following some other teachings.
Others have called this same body the etheric body.
However, this is not correct in the sense that the etheric body is that body of gateway wherein intelligent energy is able to mold the mind/body/spirit complex.
The light body or blue-ray body
may be called the devachanic body.
There are many other names for this body especially in your so-called Indian Sutras or writings, for there are those among these peoples which have explored these regions and understand the various types of devachanic bodies.
There are many, many types of bodies in each density, much like your own.
The indigo-ray body
which we choose to call the etheric body is, as we have said, the gateway body.
In this body form is substance and you may only see this body as that of light as it may mold itself as it desires.
The violet-ray body
may perhaps be understood as what you might call the Buddha body or that body which is complete.
Each of these bodies has an effect upon your mind/body/spirit complex in your life being-ness.
The interrelationships, as we have said, are many and complex
Perhaps one suggestion that may be indicated is this:
The indigo-ray body
may be used by the healer once the healer becomes able to place its consciousness in this etheric state.
The violet-ray or Buddhic body
is of equal efficacy to the healer for within it lies a sense of wholeness which is extremely close to unity with all that there is.
These bodies are part of each entity and the proper use of them and understanding of them is, though far advanced from the standpoint of third-density harvest, nevertheless useful to the adept.
Questioner: Which bodies do we have immediately after physical death from this yellow-ray body that I now am in?
Ra: I am Ra. You have all bodies in potentiation.
Questioner: Then the yellow-ray body in potentiation is used to create this chemical arrangement that I have as a physical body now. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect only in that in your present incarnation the yellow-ray body is not in potentiation but in activation, it being that body which is manifest.
Questioner: Then after death from this incarnation we still have the yellowray body in potentiation, but then in the general case of our planetary population after death, would they then normally have the green-ray body manifested?
Ra: I am Ra. Not immediately.
The first body which activates itself upon death is the “form-maker” or the indigo-ray body.
This body remains—you have called it the “ka”—until etherea has been penetrated and understanding has been gained by the mind/body/spirit totality.
Once this is achieved, if the proper body to be activated is green-ray, then this will occur.
Questioner: Let me make a statement and you tell me if I am correct.
After death then, if an entity is unaware, he may become what is called an Earthbound spirit until he is able to achieve the required awareness for activation of one of his bodies.
Would it be possible then to activate any of the bodies from red through violet?
Ra: I am Ra. Given the proper stimulus, this is correct.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 48
Questioner: Could you tell me how the various bodies, red through violet, are linked to the energy centers, red through violet?
Are they linked in some way?
Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last full query of this working.
As we have noted, each of the true color densities has the seven energy centers and each entity contains all this in potentiation.
The activation, while in yellow-ray, of violet-ray intelligent infinity is a passport to the next octave of experience.
There are adepts who have penetrated many, many of the energy centers and several of the true colors.
This must be done with utmost care while in the physical body for as we noted when speaking of the dangers of linking red/orange/yellow circuitry with true color blue circuitry the potential for disarrangement of the mind/body/spirit complex is great.
However, the entity who penetrates intelligent infinity is basically capable of walking the universe with unfettered tread.
Is there any brief query before we leave this instrument?
The Law of One, Book III, Session 51
Questioner: Thank you.
It seems to me, and you can tell me where I am going wrong with this statement, that we have seven bodies each corresponding to one of the seven colors of the spectrum and that energy that creates these seven bodies is a universal type of energy that streams into our planetary environment and comes in through the seven energy centers that we have called chakras to develop and perfect these bodies.
Each of these bodies is somehow related to the mental configuration that we have and the perfection of these bodies and the total in-streaming of this energy is a function of this mental configuration, and through this mental configuration we may block, to some extent, the in-streamings of energy that created these seven bodies.
Could you comment on where I am wrong and correct that which I have stated?
Ra: I am Ra. Your statement is substantially correct.
To use the term “mental configuration” is to oversimplify the manners of blockage of instreaming which occur in your density.
The mind complex has a relationship to the spirit and body complexes which is not fixed.
Thus blockages may occur betwixt spirit and mind, or body and mind, upon many different levels.
We reiterate that each energy center has seven sub-colors, let us say, for convenience.
Thus spiritual/mental blockages combined with mental/bodily blockages may affect each of the energy centers in several differing ways.
Thus you may see the subtle nature of the balancing and evolutionary process.
