The Etheric or Subtle Body is a body of finely attuned physical matter derived from the energy field of the Earth, and links man with all life. It surrounds our own denser physical body, and its main function is to receive and distribute the vital force which emanates from the sun, and so is intimately connected with physical health. In recent years, a great deal of research, particularly in the field of radionics, has shown the value of treatment at the Etheric level, restoring equilibrium in these energy fields, and thereby preventing disease in the physical body.
Force centres or chakras; clairvoyance; and the ways in which the psyche functions through the etheric are also examined. This book is part of a series which in includes The Mental Body, The Astral Body, The Causal Body, and The Solar System.
Arthur Edward Powell (1882-1969), was a Theosophist whose books were published beginning in the early 1900s. He studied the major esoteric works of Helena Blavatsky, Charles Webster Leadbeater and Annie Besant.
