on its vibrational frequency, your internal aether composes
one of a number of sublime bodies that exists in tandem
with your material self. Most of the time your internal
aether is vibrating at a rate within the material range,
albeit on the aetheric plane. Because the aetheric plane
exists our material and aetheric selves can exist simultaneously.
back at the chart that was presented to you on page 11 of
the pamphlet, Aetheric Beings, titled The
Other Worlds and Their Aetheric Vibrations, a Vibrational
Map of the Aetheric Plane. As you meditate and raise
or lower your internal aether to other worlds within the
aether, your consciousness changes from its normal material-aetheric
form to one more suited to the new world it inhabits.
youve been practicing the Aetheric Dozen, then you
may have already made an astonishing realization: Each time
you have raised your minds frequency to the astral
world, your personal aether has done likewise and formed
an astral body. While you practice the exercises the astral
body inhabits the same space as your physical body. In this
pamphlet you will learn techniques for moving your astral
body to other places while your physical body remains still.
The aetheric form known as the elemental body is the most
dynamic of all the sublime bodies, due to the variegated
nature of the elemental vibrational frequency. Depending
on where in the elemental world your travels take you, your
elemental body will become fiery, earthy, watery, airy,
or a combination of the four. In some instances the elemental
body can exist in the material world. Techniques for creating
and using your elemental body will be discussed in a pamphlet
later in this series.
Material-Aetheric Body: This body is known as the material-aetheric
body instead of just the material body to help
you keep from confusing it from the physical body you use
every day in the material world. Your consciousness is in
its material-aetheric form when you go about your mundane
day-to-day affairs, not practicing mentalism or altering
your mind's vibration through meditation or other means.
You use your material-aetheric body when you daydream, putting
yourself in places or situations that are totally imaginary.
Astral Body: Most of the feats and techniques you will
learn as a mentalist will use the astral body. The astral
body is an ideal vehicle for mentalism and aether manipulation
for a number of reasons. Firstly, the heightened awareness
achieved through astral-vibration meditation focuses the
mentalist sufficiently for aetheric work. Secondly, the
astral world is a remarkably pliable place, so aspirants
will find it a welcoming venue for their experiments. Thirdly,
the variety of beings and energies existing in the astral
world provide the diversity essential to progress as a mentalist.
There are other, lesser reasons illustrating why the astral
world is ideal for mentalism, and as you perform your own
studies there you will no doubt come up with a list of your
own. A Separate Self, the fourth essay in this
pamphlet, gives a considerable amount of information about
the astral body.
Elysian Body: The elysian body is the aetheric form
your consciousness takes on once its vibration is raised
past the upper limits of the astral world and the Lethean
field separating the astral and elysian frequencies. At
this point in your studies Elysium is nothing but the remotest
of destinations reachable in your aetheric travels, so for
now we will not dwell on the functions of this sublime body.
