Energy body (or aura) has 7 main layers, each of them relating to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual condition of man. These aura layers transmit information between the body (through the chakra system) and the immediate external environment.
The layers have an ovoid shape and are arranged one inside the other. Each layer or level is an energy field varying in vibration. The outer layers are larger and with higher vibration.
As with the chakra system, there are many more layers (over 50), but they are not important to us while we are in the physical life. Each layer of aura corresponds to one chakra.
Three lesser astral layers are connected with the manifestation of physical and serve to form your personality. It is also believed that they begin to develop at conception and disappear at death.
Etheric Body – The First Layer of the Aura
The etheric body is the first layer of the aura after the physical body and can be seen as a bridge between the physical body and subtle bodies.
