Our Physical Body and Eight Layers of Expression

The Physical Body is the Densest Layer of Expressed Divine Being 

We normally think of our body as our physical body. But actually, every individual ranges from both the physical, most manifest level of the body, all the way to the finest level of creation—the causal level just at the edge of unmanifest. We refer to this continuum from gros to subtlest as the physiology of the body.

This range of expression of the physiology is a smooth continuum. However, in energy healing, it’s very useful to divide the range into various sections in order to:

  • allow attention to focus concisely
  • work with laws of nature that differ at various levels of manifestation.

Eight Layers of the Body

We divide this continuum of the physiology into eight layers.

The four dense levels of the body:

  1. Physical body
  2. Etheric body,
  3. Mental body
  4. Emotional body.

The two abstract levels of the body:

  1. Astral body
  2. Causal body

Finer than the abstract expressions are two values of unmanifest Divine Being.

  1. Saguna Brahm: Dynamic silence
  2. Nirguna Brahm: Resting silence

The physical, manifest layer is the physical body. Imbalances experienced at this level are commonly addressed from three angles.

  • Physical systems—circulatory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, nervous system and the other various systems of the body.
  • Regions of the physiology— the head, the trunk, the limbs.
  • Physical dimensions— organs, tissues, cells, subcellular structures, molecules, atoms, subatomic 1, subatomic 2 or the quantum level.

The physical body, then, is the most dense of the eight layers of the human physiology. Therefore, energy work activates healing in the above physical areas, as needed.

Healing to Balance the Crown and Root Chakras:

  • This healing is activated as you read it because energy healing takes place outside the constraints of space and time.
  • Even though Dorothy performs the healing at one time, anyone from that time forward can benefit from that healing.
  • Additionally, the healings become more powerful over time as more and more people participate.
  • Also, the same person, coming back more than once to the same healing, will receive ever deepening layers of benefit from the healings.


  • Integrating individuality with universality. 
  • Healing for etheric body.

Thank you to the Mother of the Universe for blessing this healing, and to each participant for being the precious expression of the Source of All That Is. And thank you to the ancestors.


Coordination between the individual consciousness and universal consciousness (the laws of Nature) are responsible for the health, or lack thereof in the body. Looking in this healing to improve the communication within the field of consciousness, and between consciousness and the body. Now clearing from the channels of communication: hopelessness, misunderstanding, digressions, distractions. Under that, clearing intense emotions, frustration, attachments to assumptions and expectations. Clearing identification, and egoic structures associated with ideals of what one “should” be or “could” be. 

This clearing is taking place on the grounds of collective body intelligence witnessing the imbalance. As a result, the witnessing loosens it from the fine fabric of the causal through etheric levels of the body. Etheric body especially is ready for some good healing now. Flow of compassion and an upgrade of understanding to the etheric body. This upgrade of understanding consequently reveals the interface between the laws of Nature and the etheric body. 

Understanding the Etheric Body

Any illness (even if you have an accident) will sit in the etheric body prior to manifesting at the physical level and continue to reside at an etheric level after symptoms have emerged. The etheric body has the potential to be filled with very potent life force. A download is being received by the God presence of the etheric body’s full potential. 

When people talk about a “light body” they are really talking about a fully activated etheric body. When the etheric body flows with maximum life force and subtle energies, it glows in a way which others can perceive. If your friends are sensitive, they will know what they are seeing. If they are not, they will understand on a level which is not accessible to them, but a level to which they respond anyway. 

As the etheric body awakens to its cosmic potential, it is poised to let maximum healing energy from Being reach the physical body. Remember, the etheric body is just one degree more subtle than physical so it is the door between non-physical and physical. There are waves of knowingness coming from Being to the etheric body. They include information about integration between Being and physical reality, how to best align personal evolutionary trajectory with cosmic evolution, and the importance of getting emotional reality in order for success in self healing through energy work. 

Examining and dealing with your “stuff”

Clearing frustration in the nervous system, particularly the head regarding feelings of helplessness, worthlessness, and lack of resources to deal. All of these feelings are being turned over to Divine Being. Your Divine Being, is you. You are turning over your “stuff” to the part of yourself which illuminates. As a result, looking at your own “stuff” from the perspective of Divine Being allows you to step outside of it, and see it like a witness. The ability to witness makes you bigger than you are whenever you are gripped, or overshadowed by symptoms. This witnessing state is also expansive and makes available the resources required to deal with “stuff.”

Feeling a fine integration of Divine Being at the etheric level of the body. Being is washing over and through the etheric body. It is upgrading the ability to deal with viruses and other micro-invaders. As it pushes into the denser regions of the etheric body, pockets of discordant feeling and accompanying feelings which are connected with identification (small ego) are dislodged. These pockets of feeling especially require some extra attention. Ego identifies with particular energy signatures. These energy signatures come from subtle regions of creation. They carry the weight of much life force and universal memories. We are here to witness this energy, not to identify with it. The role of the human is to experience expansion but from a state of balance, which supports stability in expansion. 


Balance is manifesting in the pockets of the etheric body which have been harboring these energies from subtle regions of creation. Some are memories, genetic memories, past incarnation memories, and collective memories. 

The memories and their energy signatures are being honored, while at the same time the etheric body is being released from the grip of identification with the feelings of the memories. It is alright to recognize the brilliance and diversity of the creation while also maintaining a universal perspective–the perspective that, in the eyes of the Mother of Creation, everything, good or bad, vitally contributes to the overall reality of life. 

Double-checking back with the etheric body again. Clearing more discordant feelings in the throat, neck, upper chest and shoulder area. This is the action center in the body. This is also where a lot of the karma associated with perceived “mistakes” resides. Innocence manifesting in this area, and letting go of expectations that achievements that have to fit within specific parameters in order to be recognized. Remember, as long as you recognize an achievement, it really doesn’t matter if anyone else does. In the end, no one besides yourself will really comprehend the extent of any of your achievements. So, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. What they see is a reflection of their consciousness, not yours. As long as you can recognize your dedication, strengths, and efforts, that is all that really matters.
