Understanding Your Energetic Anatomy, and How it Relates to Your Overall Health

Before we experience anything with our physical senses, we first experience it through our Energy Body.

We receive energetic information, through our energy field, or “Aura”, which to our energy body, is similar to what the skin is to our physical body. It is our outermost, invisible layer, and just like our dermal tissue (our skin), it consists of many energetic layers. There are several different models of the Auric Field, but I resonate most with the theory that there are seven layers, which correspond to each of the seven chakras (the western chakra model), so this is the auric model I will share with you, throughout this blog, and within my online courses, if you should choose to seek continued holistic healing education in the future.

How We Experience Subtle Energy, and How it Relates to Our Overall Health

Energy first moves through the seven basic layers of the Aura (listed from the layers that are closest to the physical body, outward). They are as follows: 

  1. The Etheric Body
  2. The Emotional Body
  3. The Mental Body
  4. The Astral Body
  5. The Etheric Template
  6. The Celestial Body
  7. The Ketheric Body 

Next, this energetic information enters through our chakras (listed from the bottom of the energetic anatomy of the body, upward). They  are as follows:

  1. The Root/Base Chakra
  2. The Sacral Chakra 
  3. The Solar Plexus Chakra 
  4. The Heart Chakra 
  5. The Throat Chakra 
  6. The Third Eye Chakra 
  7. The Crown Chakra 

Next, this energy then moves from the openings of the chakra centers, on through to the physical body, near the main 8 points of our endocrine system (the main glands of the male and female body), delivering important information to the body, brain, and psychic centers, and if the energy is properly flowing, it exists out of the back of the chakras, and the excess drains down the spine, and out the bottom of the feet, grounding into the earth.

These main glands are:

  • The Testis (in Men) – Root Chakra
  • The Ovaries (in Women) – Sacral Chakra
  • The Adrenals – Solar Plexus Chakra 
  • The Thymus – Heart Chakra 
  • The Thyroid – Throat Chakra
  • The Pituitary – Third Eye Chakra
  • The Pineal – Crown Chakra

Now, notice that above, I said: “if the energy is properly flowing, it exists out of the backspin of the chakras, and the excess travels down the spine, and out the feet, grounding to the earth”… Here, in my view, is when we can start unintentionally creating dis-ease within the physical body, which could manifest in several different ways. Some signs of dis-ease could be experienced as physical issues within the body, such as aches and pains, as well as other issues such as our energy level, mental clarity, sex drive, mood and our emotions.


Let’s look at it this way…

Imagine if you were to eat food, but you didn’t push the waste out of your body after the food was processed. What would happen to your physical body? Well, your digestive system would plug up, your physical body would be knocked out of homeostasis, and would stop correctly functioning.

A similar thing happens when we fail to properly release energy that we don’t need to hold onto. Just like we process food, we need to process the energy that does not appear to be solid to us but is still very much present. Remember, everything is energy, and if this energy starts to back up and create energetic blockages within our energetic anatomy, usually accumulating and compacting around our organs, it can start to affect the energies that make up these organs, causing the physical body to again, be knocked out of homeostasis, causing stress and if not removed, possibly resulting in dis-ease, changes within the cells, tissue and even affecting our DNA.

So, as I’m writing this post I’m laughing to myself because basically, a good portion of this blog is dedicated to teaching you how to properly take an “energetic poo”, but hey, it’s FREAKING important and it’s SUPER overlooked! Some people really need help in this area because they are negatively affected by this “energetic constipation” if you will, on a daily basis, which has the potential to cause both short-term and long-term consequences. Being equipt with this knowledge could be just what you need in order to live a more healthy, vibrant and joyful life! 

A Book Recommendation for Deeper Learning:

The Subtle Body, An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy, by: Cyndi Dale, is a GREAT book if you would like an in-depth reference guide to your Energetic Anatomy, as well as the different models that are commonly used, within the different cultures of the world.
