Awaken Your Eleven Bodies

The Eleven Bodies are:
Soul Body
Negative Mind
Positive Mind
Neutral Mind
Physical Body
Arc Line
Auric Body
Pranic Body
Subtle Body
Radiant Body
All Bodies

First Body: Soul Body
The spark of the Infinite that resides in the core of your being.
Qualities: Humility, creativity. Realizing the eternal nature of your soul, so you naturally embody humility and creativity.
Key phrase: “Heart over Head” – Yogi Bhajan said that when the head rules, the head and heart are both wrong; when the heart rules, the head and heart are both right.
Mastery: Come from a place of great humility. Let every breath travel the thread of Light which connects you to the vast origin of the Creation. In this way each thought and action will effortlessly flow with the natural creativity of the Divine.
If Imbalanced, weak: You come from the head instead of the heart. When this body is not nurtured, the tendency is to rely on the intellect instead of the intuition. This leads to confusion and frustration as the relaxed creative flow is blocked by a feeling of separation from the celestial source.
Key to Balancing: A spiritual practice that empowers you to raise your consciousness (the Kundalini energy) and to open your heart to the Divine.

Second Body: Negative (Protective) Mind
Identifies possible dangers or shortcomings in a situation. Expresses protective caution about the future, sees the downside or pitfalls in every situation out of a genuine sense of caring.
Qualities: Conservative containment, discipline to avoid the precarious
Key phrase: “The Longing to Belong” –Your soul longs to unite with the Infinite.
Mastery: gives form to the creativity of your Soul Body by developing the discernment to identify potential dangers and set protective boundaries. Through the resulting sense of safety, your soul’s longing is satisfied by connecting deeply to its own God Self.
If imbalanced, weak: Poor choices in relationships; easily fooled, can’t recognize potential danger. If too strong: immobilized by imagined dangers and negative attitude towards the future.
Key to Balancing: To strengthen, exercise your discipline; develop conscious relationships of integrity, feel deserving enough to defend yourself. To balance if too strong, develop the Positive Mind by modeling the behaviors of those who are successful in their expression of enthusiasm, trust and hope.

Third Body: Positive (Expansive) Mind
You elevate others through your enthusiastic, trusting and hopeful energetic projection.
Qualities: Equality, positivity
Key phrase: “Devil or Divine” – You have a tendency to flip from one to the other..
Mastery: effortlessly charismatic yet humble; you’re naturally playful, optimistic and
full of humor; these qualities easily inspire others to be positive about the future
If imbalanced: If weak, you may be overwhelmed by negative thoughts, which can lead to depression, hopelessness, anger or intolerance. Fear of expressing your power because of the responsibility that comes with it may also occur. If too strong, you may make foolish choices and possibly lead others to, as your influential positive projection, obscures the perception of possible dangers.
Key to Balancing: If too weak, strengthen your Navel Point (Third Chakra); be more assertive, use positive affirmations and model the hopeful behaviors of those people with a strong positive projection. If too strong - strengthen your Negative Mind by modeling the behaviors of people who are successful in protecting themselves, making well educated decisions concerning the future and sensing potential challenges.

Fourth Body: Neutral (Meditative) Mind
Is seduced by neither the negative nor positive intellect, rather dwells in the tranquility of non-emotional intuition.
Qualities: Service, compassion, integration, balance, wisdom
Key phrase: “Cup of Prayer” –No argument regarding its fullness or emptiness, just an appreciation of the gift of its existence.
Mastery: a calm and clear perception of the essence of any situation; access to the wisdom of the soul by disengaging from intellectual argument and its associated emotionality, through development of the intuition and meditative mind
If weak: feeling victimized and immobilized by contradictory thoughts and emotions, lacking intuition and dwelling in intellectual argument

Key phrase: “Be Balanced and Teach”

Realize that your physical body is a vehicle through which the other bodies find expression; then use your vitality to meet others at their level and elevate them by sharing the technologies of consciousness
If imbalanced: If weak - angry, jealous, greedy, fatigued, and ungrateful; lack of equilibrium between inner and outer experience; poor verbal expression; feelings that the body can’t support your needs; fear of teaching. If too strong, obsession with physical appearance, physical abilities and the material world.
Key to Balancing: Develop a routine that keeps the body strong and flexible; extend your energy to elevate others by teaching the sacred methods that support the health of body, mind, and spirit.

Sixth Body: Arcline
The arcline extends from ear to ear, across the hairline and brow; it’s your halo, the nucleus of the aura and avenue of intuition. It is associated with the pituitary gland, regulates the nervous system, glandular balance and subtle perceptivity.

Mastery: Projects positivity and repels negativity, like a shield; illness cannot penetrate to your physical body; radiates a magnetic security and an inspiring, merciful presence
If weak: constrictive, paranoid, lack self-trust; negativity can penetrate into the psyche and physical body; there may be a tendency to conform to please others by over expressing yourself
Key to Balancing: practice meditation, pranayam, vigorous yoga, martial arts. Wearing white clothing made of natural fibers gives about a 12 inch boost to the aura. Work on the Eighth Chakra; be mindful of the positive effects of water, internally and externally.

Eighth Body: Pranic Body

Eleventh Embodiment: Parallel 'Unison-ness'
The Eleventh Body contains all Ten Bodies and represents the sound current, the vibratory basis of all of existence. It is in play when your humanity and divinity become one.
Qualities: Divine vision, the embodiment of Truth, the absence of duality, tranquil completion
Key phrase: "Infinity" “See God in all, or don’t see God at All.”
Mastery: my identity is Sat Nam; “God and me, me and God are one.” Complete integration of the finite and the Infinite so everything is experienced as God’s play. Complete acceptance of, and unity with, the will of God.
Key to Balancing: meditatively recite the words of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib; Use Nam Simran (the continual, repetition of sacred mantra within the mind) to tap into the sound current. You can direct all parts of your being from an impersonal, expansive space that allows Infinity to flow through you at all times.

“When the God in you, and the human in you are in parallel unisonness, then you are an 11. You have no duality, you have divine vision, and the truth flows from you. You don’t have to find anything outside of you. The jewels are all in you – you are rich inside, you have satisfaction and contentment.”
