The Rainbow body
BY ROSANNA MARTELLA
We are the children of light
The human body is not only physical and visible; there is a part of it that it is not easily visible and it is called the Energy body, the Aura, the Subtle body or the Ethereal body.
It is this energy field around our body that vibrates and connects us to all there is in the world.
With the right training we can learn to see it with our physical eye. This subtle energy body is made of different layers; each layer is similar to the physical body to which it is connected by the chakras or energy centers and the nerves system.
The chakras are energy points which receive and transmit life force energy in a spiral manner. The function of our chacras are to keep our mental, spiritual and physical body in balance by receiving and sending energy (Prana) while spinning.Each chakra corrispond to a different color. Along with colors, each chakra point has it’s own sound (or frequency) associated with it. Colors, crystals and sound can all be used to stimulate, clean and realign the chacras.
The energy body and the chakras are also connected to the Nadis or energy channels that run along the physical body. Chakra are the “organs” of our energy body, just as the organs of our physical body, we have luminous organs which are vertexes of energy that spin, are shaped like funnels, energetic centers which absorb, digest and distribute energy. The physical and the energy body are closely related, to the point that when something happens to the one, the other is effected also.
There is a law of correspondence between the two bodies: disease manifests itself in the energy body before it appears on the physical body; When we heal the energy body, the physical body gets healed in the process.
A disease can be seen in the energy body of a person, by a clairvoyant, before it manifests itself in the physical body. The physical body is molded out of the energy body. It is like the energy body comes first and then the physical body materializes. This can be demonstrated by persons that lose a limb or an organ. At times, that person feels like the limb or organ is still there. That is because in fact the energy body retains the form of that missing part. This is also true for a removed internal organ ( i.e. spleen, gall bladder). The body continues to function because the Aura has the energy and form of the missing part.
The energy body is connected to the nadis, a grid of lines in the physical body also called meridians, which are connected to the energy centers called chakras. The chakras are funnel like, colorful, spinning wheels attached to the spinal column by their rut, which is the small tube of the funnel. The chakras’ fuel is cosmic energy also called in Chinese “ki” “chi” or “qi” (or “prana” in Sanskrit). The chakras radiate and receive this energy constantly and keep our mental, spiritual and physical body in balance.
The Chakras’ energy centers are a very important part of the energy body. They are whirling energy centers that radiate, vibrate and receive cosmic energy constantly and are responsible for the proper functioning of the whole body by controlling and energizing the major and vital organs of the physical body.
The Chakras are transfer points for our thoughts, emotions and physical functions of specific endocrine glands.
The endocrine glands secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream and also interact with the other glands of our body. The hormones they secrete are responsible for determining the forms of our body and the working of our mind. Each of the glands need to be stimulated and exercised on the regular basis in order to promote optimal health.
When we are balanced and acquire self discipline, our chakras pulsate with light. When our emotions are blocked, they become dull and sluggish. When we are open-minded, we are like sponges absorbing the energy field of the universe around us. As we absorb the prana we increase the energy that is flowing through us and we feel strong and happy.
When we have a trauma this causes an imprint in the Human Aura in a form of a “blue print” that becomes encoded in our field. This imprint has a charge that it is carried like a cocoon that becomes a permanent fixture if the trauma doesn’t get resolved and let go. This charge contains energy but also information about circumstances around the original wounding. Whenever this imprint gets triggered that information gets spilled out into our chakras and takes over our central nervous system, and recreate the circumstances of the original wounding again and again.
When we hold negative thoughts, the chakras slow down and become dirty with dense dark energy. When this happens we feel sluggish and out of balance, because the chakras cannot vibrate at the right frequency and freely push through this heavy energy.
The chakras are connected to the meridians that are the channels where the “Ki” or electromagnetic energy of the body travel: our nervous system. On the meridians we find the acupuncture points described in ancient Chinese medicine. The meridians are also connected to the organs.
In many books about this subject, it is told that there are 7 major chakras but others say 9 or 11 or even 14 major chakras. There are also many more minor chakras throughout the body. Among the minor chakras, the ones that every human being uses most are the hands chakras. In fact if we hurt our selves, we immediately go to the painful part with our hands and most of the time the pain goes away. We do this act without knowing why it works, but the reason is that the chackras of a healthy person are very powerful energy centers.
For millennia, the major religious books have written about healing with the hands.
The seven major chakras are:
BASIC, SEX, SOLAR PLEXUS, HEART, THROAT, AJNA, CROWN
The First, second and third chakras are related to the creative processes and emotions.
In the center there is the Fourth Chakra which is the bigger chakra: the Heart Chakra associated with love.
The Fifth, Six and Seven Chakras are related to the though and the logic processes of the mind
THE FIRST CHAKRA
Basic Chakra or Root Chakra
The basic chakra is located at the base of the spine, at the coccyx. Is also called the root chakra because it connects us to mother Earth and represents the “grounding” of the being to the material world.
The first chakra connects us to the femminive and the Earth energy. Is the connection to mother Nature, the mother that never lives us. This chakra, which puts us in touch with the physical world, is related to issues of survival and self preservation, fulfillment of our physical needs for food and shelter. Concerns are safety and security. Because here now we are growing more concern of never having enough and never have enough security, we have lost the connection with Nature and that Mother that never lives us, These are themes that we can heal by reestablishing our connection to the Earth. She provides all that we need, so we live in abundance. Fear is associated with insecurity and death.
This center corresponds to the Adrenal and Gonads glands.
The basic chakra is the foundation for the higher chakras and it is the source of life force. This is the seat of the main energy force of the body, it is here that we can access the Kundalini energy, and it is here that we access Sushumna, Ida and Pingala which are the three main energy channels of the body.

~~~~We are made of Star stuff~~~~
At the still point of the turning world.
Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement.
And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered.
Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline.
Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance,
and there is only the dance.
~ T.S. Eliot ~
