Every human being is composed of many “bodies,” not just the one you can see with your eyes. Your physical body is the most easily visible, because it’s the densest.  The energy it radiates falls within the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that’s visible to your eyes. There are many things that fall outside of this visible range (i.e., radio waves, sound waves, microwaves, etc.) that can be experienced and even measured. Your emotional body, your mental body, and your higher spiritual bodies are made up of energy that falls outside of the visible range.  Although you cannot see these bodies with your physical eyes, you can certainly experience them.  You can feel emotions as they move through you. Some emotions feel good, others unpleasant. It’s the same with your thoughts.

You can think of your energetic body as a system of connections between your physical form and these other aspects of you. It acts like a bridge between what happens in your physical body and what happens in your mind, emotions and spirit or soul. It's the communication link between all of the different aspects of who you are as a whole person.


Have you ever felt nervous about something and gotten a sick feeling in your stomach? Or given yourself a headache from worrying? What you’re feeling is the interaction between your emotional body or mental body and your physical form. A movement in one causes a reaction or a corresponding movement in the other. Similarly, have you ever felt physically stronger, happier or even healthier after a spiritual experience such as listening to a beautiful piece of music, watching the sunrise, or participating in a spiritual activity like yoga or going to church? What you’re feeling is the movement of your higher spiritual bodies causing a resonant movement in your physical body.  All of these interactions are mediated through your energetic body.
