Poweol are only two ways in which this deterioration or destruction may be brought about, according to the type of person concerned and the proportion of the constituents in his etheric and astral bodies. By long and determined effort the orange-red ray can be deflected upwards to the brain, where all three constituents undergo a profound modification.
These rose-coloured atoms are the original atoms which first drew round them the six others to form the globule. At death the double finally withdraws from the dense body and may be seen as a violet mist, gradually condensing into a figure which is the counterpart of the expiring person and attached to the dense body by a glistening thread. The Inner Aura does not alter in shape or size to any great extent, but it changes considerably in texture.

The development of the spleen centre enables the man to remember his astral journeys, though sometimes only very partially, the faculty associated with the corresponding astral centre being that of travelling consciously in the astral body.
The Etheric Double being in exceedingly close relationship with the nervous system, any action on one of them reacts speedily on the other. Probably the closest approach has been in studies of ectoplasm, which seems to be the temporary and abnormal condition of a plastic and extrudable component of the human body that becomes amenable to test only when it has been made external and densified into tangible form by the special and unconsciously exercised psychic abilities eheric certain rare people.
Through the top of the head pass the atoms from the dark blue and violet rays. It happens frequently in the natural sciences of the physical world for which our ordinary language and mathematical symbology are expressly designed.
The method is to transfer impressions from the etheric matter of the retina direct to the etheric brain: 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.
Ethreic men become satyrs, monsters of depravity, being at the mercy of a force out of all proportion to the human power of resistance.

This book shows you how. Such Rays are formed more easily between points than between surfaces. The etheric aura, however, or health Aura as it is frequently called, projects normally several inches beyond the skin: Ashwini is currently reading it Dec 11, The entities posing or accepted as tribal deities, for whom blood sacrifices are made, or food, preferably of flesh, is burnt, are very low-grade creatures, possessing etheric bodies, for it is only through etheric bodies that they can absorb physical fumes and derive either nourishment or pleasure from them.
In the mineral, astral matter is so little active that there is no perceptible working from the astral to the physical. Although the elemental in charge of the body from the first, the Ego only comes into contact with his future habitation later, some time before physical birth.
It is usually of a uniform width of 2 to 4 inches throughout, though sometimes slightly narrower down the limbs, and follows the contours of the body.

Ambition, for example, in the mental body is very readily aroused and grows to an inordinate degree. Mesmerism purely for curative purposes, by those who understand what they are doing and dounle be trusted not to abuse their powers, has much to be said for it; but mesmerism for other purposes is doubld not advisable.
The chakrams or centres, therefore, cannot be described as organs of sense in the ordinary sense of that term, though they do convey the powers of sense to the astral body. Such amusements as rowing for example, or swimming, especially in the sea, are of especial value, for the reasons named. It receives the violet-blue ray from the spleen chakram.
