Not what you would call a light read. It is reported that some French scientists, who could not normally see the N Rays, became able to do so after sitting in darkness for three or four hours. To clairvoyant vision it appears in very truth like liquid fire as it rushed through the body, and the course through which it ought to move is a spiral one like the coils of a serpent.
Thus a fairy naturally 12 inches high might expand himself to 6 feet high, but only with a considerable strain which he could not maintain for more than a few minutes.
The Etheric Double – The Health Aura of Man Arthur E Powell –
After each pass the operator must take care to throw off from himself the etheric matter he etheruc withdrawn, poowell some of it may remain in his own system and he may presently find himself suffering from a complaint similar to that of which he has cured his patient. The astral body originally was an almost inert mass, with only the vaguest consciousness, with no definite power of doing anything, and no efheric knowledge of the world which surrounds ehteric.
It is relatively wider in children than in adults. It is believed by Theosophists that devas can be observed when the third eye is activated. The Inner Aura does not alter in shape or size to any great extent, but it changes considerably in texture.
The vitality globule, once charged, remains as a sub-atomic element, and does not appear to be subject to any change or loss of force unless and until it is absorbed by some living creature. This would be most likely to happen with a person who is mediumistic. This explains the emphasis sometimes laid on the development of the pineal gland.
Curative mesmerism is free from this danger.
Etheric sight would of course make the Etheric Doubles of men visible: To clairvoyant sight they appear as vortices or saucer-like depressions of rapidly rotating matter.
It is classed as one of the seven Elements, which correspond to the seven regions of the universe, the seven sheaths of Brahman, and so forth.
Owing to the fact that during a materialisation matter may be borrowed from all the sitters present as well as from the medium, a considerable intermixture of such matter may take place, and consequently undesirable qualities or vices in any one of the sitters are liable to react upon the others and most of all upon the powelo, who is most drawn upon and is almost certainly the most sensitive person present. It is not, however, advisable to allow oneself to be thrown into mesmeric sleep in order to obtain clairvoyant experiences, because domination of ethrric will by that of another person tends to make the will of the subject weaker and thus more liable to be acted upon by others.
It is therefore, more than probable that further investigations would reveal properties of the Aura which, while perhaps having no diagnostic utility, would, nevertheless, be of scientific interest. It is of course, true that no physical weapon could affect an astral body, but an injury to a materialised form may be transmitted to the astral body by the phenomenon known as “repercussion.
Then the initiate learns how to separate the two superior ethers from the others in order for them to serve as a vehicle to travel out of the physical body.
A dead black background is usually necessary, though for some observations a white one is required. The aura is observed to consist of three distinct parts, called by Dr. In selecting it as the term for a clearly defined concept in an Indian-derived metaphysical system, the Theosophists aligned it with ideas such as the prana-maya-kosha sheath made of pranasubtle breath or life-force of Vedantic thought.
The web thus becomes as it were ossified so that instead of too much coming through from one plane to another, we have very little of any kind coming through. We have seen already that is quite separate and distinct from light, heat, etc. It is important to note that although the nerves are in the physical body, it is not the physical body, as such, which has the power of feeling.
But even when these astral senses are fully awake, it by no means follows that the man will be able to bring into his physical body any consciousness of their action. Ashwini is currently reading it Dec 11, The author’s aim in compiling the books in this series was to save students much time and labour by providing a condensed synthesis of the considerable literature on the respective subjects of each volume, coming mostly from the pens of Annie Besant and C.
Sinnett gives a curious case of a lady who was cured of chronic rheumatism and then went to live in a part of Europe other than that in which the mesmeric operator resided. In addition to the extrusion of etheric matter, in many cases the dense physical matter, probably chiefly gases and liquids, is also removed at the same time from the body of the medium.
How much more likely must this be in a domain more psychic than physical. By long and determined effort the orange-red ray can be deflected upwards to the brain, where all three constituents undergo a profound modification.

It is known to occultists that there are at least three separate and distinct forces which emanate from the sun and reach our planet. When the faculty is perfectly developed it is completely under control, and may be used or not used at will. It is usually of a uniform couble of 2 to 4 inches throughout, though sometimes slightly narrower down the limbs, and follows the contours of the body.
Persons who have lost a limb by amputation sometimes complain that they can feel pain at the extremities of the amputated limb, i. Hence the powwell of such trees is extremely beneficial for people who are nervously depleted. Blavatsky is greater than could ever be indicated by quotations from her monumental volumes.

He claims that his methods are purely physical and can be employed with success by any one who takes the necessary powepl.
In addition to the bluish-grey colour, red and yellow have been observed to tinge Rays. Unless disturbed by tumultuous distress or violent emotion, the state of consciousness is dreamy and peaceful. Etheric matter being plastic and readily moulded by the power of thought, they are able to assume almost any appearance at will, but, nevertheless, they have definite forms of their own which they wear when they have no special reason for taking any other.
The streams leave the spleen centre horizontally. Any emotional shock, or any strong emotion of an evil character, which produces a kind of explosion in the astral body, may produce such an effect, rending apart the delicate web and, as we say, driving the man mad. In some cases it is not necessary to make a shell to surround the whole body, but merely a small local shield to guard oneself against a special contact.
