The 9th Body: The Subtle Body

The Subtle Body is your greatest friend and ally, as it can immediately decipher the surroundings and let you know the most protected path of action. A strong Subtle Body gives you the ability to walk into a room and intuitively know what’s going on around you. You are focused, visionary, and kind. The key phrase for the Subtle Body is “mastery or mystery.” To have mastery means to be able to master situations easily. Mystery means lacking the subtle perception to pick up where people are really coming from; being easily misled; naïve. You may feel lost, disillusioned, or angry. Without mastery, life appears as a mystery.
