The Mental Body facilitates cognition, the faculty of knowing. It gives you the ability to discern, and to have thoughts, beliefs, concepts, and higher psychic abilities.
Range of Consciousness:
Mental consciousness ranges from discernment of the very specific, detailed,particular to the discernment of the very general, inclusive, abstract. Separative, distinguishing thought to unitive, embracing thought.
The five mental senses are: Higher Clairaudiance (mental hearing), Planetary Psychometry(mental feeling), Higher Clairvoyance (mental sight), Discernment (mentalequivalent of taste), and Spiritual Discernment (mental equivalent of smell).
The Mental Body has its own range of feeling. When there is excessive focus within the limiting, separative range of thought then there is judgment, mental fear, anddepression. When thought expands into the more unitive ranges then there is compassionate-understanding, peace, joy, awe, and bliss.
It is filled with light - primarily white, blue and gold, although the full range of pastel colors are common.
Mental consciousness is more objective, factual, and impersonal than astral consciousness. However, individual personality and character reach their pinnacle of development in mental consciousness.
The Mental Body has a figure like form in the shape of the Physical Body. It also has an aura that is ovoid shaped with pointed ends. The aura extends about 4 to 10 feet from the Physical Body. It has 7major energy centers, 21 minor energy centers, and many smaller centers, just like the etheric and astral bodies.
Radiations of light extend from the heart area.
The Spiritual body (the second of the subtle energy bodies) is the blueprint to your spiritual potential. However, it requires the creation of patterns of energy for this potential to be expressed and experienced. These patterns of energy are stored in the Mental body as thoughts - both conscious and sub-conscious.
The patterns stored within the mental body creates the character framework for the soul to project its personality. The "self" manifests and expresses concrete intellect through the mental body.
This body appears as a golden yellow light radiating out and around the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. It expands and becomes brighter when its owner is concentrating on mental processes.
The mental body filtrates thoughts down to the emotional body which reacts to the thoughts with an emotional association be it love, fear, happiness, anger, and so forth. A balanced mental body will provide an individual with clarity and direction.
The substance that composes the Mental Body deals with thoughts and mental processes. They are sometimes called "thought forms."The Mental Body is the region where our thought forms are initiated.
Thus, what we think can affect both us and those with whom we are in contact. On one hand, if we lead our lives in a positive and helpful way and think lots of lovely thoughts toward others and ourselves, then we feel well. On the other hand, if we lead our lives with negativity, hatred, pessimism, grief, sorrow, and depressive tendencies, thenthose thoughts are eventually reflected in our physical make-up.
The Intellectual mental Body by itself is not subject to the laws of automation; that is to say, the intellectual body is capable of a degree of free will beyond that of the astral body.
Also, the perceptions of the intellectual body are capable of being of an objective nature in matters regarding both one's self, and things outside of one's self.
An intellectual body is considered a prerequisite to maintaining a state of "objective consciousness" which is the fourth possible state of man.
The energetic understanding of the brain and the mental body is fantastic. Spiritual awakening begins when one steps outside of the analytical confines of brain patterning because spirit can not be perceived as logic.
In understanding of the brain we activate a higher form of genetics, awaken the 6th chakra, the higher mind, and begin re patterning the hypothalamus and center inside of the pituitary for an overall sense of well being.
We begin assuring the lymbic system and reptilian mind of celebration resting the fears of the small self and step outside of the ego control over the thought centers and allow the spirit to take over the function of mental conceptualization. With this one can open their full spectrum within the playing field of limitless possibilities.
The mental body gives off waves of energy electrical in nature, in synchronicity with the emotional body the mental/emotional emanation combined are the electromagnetic dynamic which effectuates harmony and balance.
