As you explore and develop your psychic ability you want to consider another part of your spirit you may or may not know exists. It’s your Astral or etheric body—the spiritual counterpart of your physical human body that exists on a different plane. It is the part of you that lives forever. It is not your soul, but an intermediate between your intelligent soul and your physical body composed of a subtle ether-like material our language struggles to define. It is an exact energy duplication of the physical form it surrounds. This energy body is attached to the physical body, usually at the naval, by a silver-like cord. It is accompanied by the mind and is capable of travel during periods in which the physical body sleeps. Such an act is referred to as astral projection.

The astral body is associated with imagination, emotions and desires, which it conveys information to the physical body. During sleep, death, or through drugs or any other loss of consciousness, the astral body separates from the physical body and, in its absence, no pain or sensation can be felt. The astral body is not composed of matter alive with an intelligent life, but it possesses a kind of life sufficient to convey an understanding of its own existence and wants.
The astral body is also associated the afterlife because it is the vehicle that carries the soul from the physical body to higher realms. It is often said that the astral body is the channel through which humans experience dreams, visions, and out-of-body experiences that participates in astral projection.
Meditation, shamanic practices, lucid dreaming and certain drugs can stimulate an awareness of one’s astral body. Some say that it can be seen as an aura of constantly changing colors swirling around the physical body.
Clairvoyants and mediums are capable of seeing their own astral body and the astral body of others. The astral world is attainable to clairvoyants, therefore making an astral body visible to them.
In accordance with theosophical teaching, thought is not the abstraction it is commonly considered to be. It is built up of definite forms, the shape of which depends on the quality of the thought. It also causes vibrations, which are seen as colors.
Hence, clairvoyants may tell the state of a man’s development from the appearance of his astral body. Some suggest that a nebulous appearance indicates imperfect development, while an ovoid—a solid three-dimensional egg shape—speaks of a more perfect development. Because color is indicative of specific kinds of thought, the variety of color coming from an astral body indicates the character of the person to whom it belongs. Inferior thoughts produce loud colors, while higher thoughts will exhibit delicate colors. For example, rage may be red while kind thoughts are pale blue.
