The etheric body is the first or lowest layer in the human energy field or aura. It is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body to sustain it and connect it with higher bodies.
The etheric body is an energy field perfect in composition, which is connected to and assists in maintaining, the physical form. It acts as a buffer for energy forces which are relayed to the physical form from higher dimensions and transmits these forces via the central nervous system and the endocrine and circulatory systems.
It provides for the vitalization of the physical cells and when in alignment with the physical body, stimulates the quest toward the attainment of the perfection of health and form.
