The Astral Body is where we hold all our past experiences. This includes past lives, which can appear in our energy field like an undigested residue of experience; an unlearnt lesson. This level is all about relationships because all experience happens in relationship: to a person, to an object, to a place, to a situation etc.
The emotional body is how you feel towards yourself, your astral body is how you feel in a relationship.
Here we perceive images: objects, people, places etc. These are symbolic representations of someone’s past experience and how it effects the present. Mental Body you have simple thought form, Emotional body you have simple emotion, astral body a fuller picture of these and where they originate and the effects they produce in relationships and behaviour.
Our experience of the past is held in our energy field. It is a creative web of beliefs and expectations, these can be positive – so if you experienced that you were supported by your environment, loved and accepted for whatever you did, you would have confidence and step into life expecting the best, and creating that through your belief and expectation. However if you had repeated negative experiences, those will tend to be fixated and re-create the present. There are areas of our lives which flow, which feel graceful, effortless, we are fulfilled and satisfied easily. There are other aspects which don’t flow, we are not fulfilled, and we may feel blocked, stuck. Here there will be past material blocking the flow of life. The block will take the form of an image (a whole conglomerate of experience which is contained in an image , a mixture of memory, beliefs, thoughts and emotions).
On this level in energy healing we work with releasing the old images so that we can live fully in the present, free from old baggage.
Healing techniques that are often used are inner child, relationship cord and past life healing.
Astral Mucus builds up when we have had an emotional exchange with another person and we wrap up any emotions we don’t want to feel in an energetic packet that is enveloped with astral mucus and lodged somewhere in our energy field. In this way it does not have an immediate, devastating, dramatic effect, but does slowly poison us with seeping emotional toxins and clogs up and congests our ability to raise our vibration and conduct mature relationships in the present time. We carry a huge burden of this mucus from all of the previous unprocessed relationship issues we have ever had, including those from previous lifetimes. This then blocks our ability to access these parts of ourselves, and tends to build up more and more around a particular issue as we continue to interact with others through the transferential distortion of past unresolved relationships.
The mucus builds in everyone concerned, but may be of a different quality depending on the defensive reaction of the individual. This can be anything from the effects of a child being punished, to an argument, a betrayal, violence, abuse, jealousy, hatred etc. The mucus is different colours according to the emotion that is being carried in it. The colours are similar to those found on the emotional level. See my post on emotion and colour healing.
When mucus is cleared people can experience enormous relief both the physically and psychologically.
