The 6th Body: The Arcline

The sixth body, the Arcline, extends across the hairline and brow from ear to ear. It’s known as your halo. A strong Arcline gives you a good ability to focus, concentrate, and meditate. You are protected by your intuition and have an appreciation of family, beauty, a keen sense of justice and fair play,

The 5th Body: The Physical Body

The Physical Body could be said to be the sacred, living, human form that houses the soul, through which enlightenment and service to humanity are manifested. The key to perfecting this body is balance—balance in body and mind, balance in diet and exercise, balance in play, work, and rest.

The 4th Body: The Neutral Mind

The Neutral Mind is the 4th of the ten bodies. Also known as the Meditative Mind or the Intuitive Mind, the Neutral Mind evaluates the input of your Negative and Positive Minds. The Neutral Mind opens the gate to that deep remembrance of the self and soul.

The 3rd Body: The Positive Mind

Balancing Unto Infinity

The third body is the Positive Mind, also known as the expansive and projective mind. It is hopeful, optimistic, creative, and playful. It seeks the bright side of things and is open to new opportunities.

The 2nd Body: The Negative Mind

The Negative Mind is the second of the Ten Bodies. It is protective and has nothing to do with negativity. It is the part of our intellect that helps create awareness of our surroundings and assess potential dangers. It gives us the ability to be discerning and not get carried away by unrealistic optimism.

The GPS of the Aquarian Age is the Neutral Mind

The 4th yogic body is the neutral mind, the part of the mind that is in direct connection to our Soul’s guidance. One of the purposes of meditation is to develop our neutral mind. True neutrality in the face of today’s modern challenges is a powerful yogic tool.

The 1st Body: The Soul Body

The first of the Ten Bodies is your best friend for life—your Soul—your flow of spirit. It exemplifies courage, creativity, humility, and vision. The key phrase for the Soul body is “Heart over Head.” Here we offer resources for working on the Soul Body.

The Ten Bodies

In the Kundalini Yoga tradition, the human being doesn’t consist of just one physical body, or two (physical and mental), but rather ten—one physical body, three mental bodies, and six energy bodies. As you’ll discover in the practice, many of the exercises ignite the energetic bodies and things we cannot see, but feel. Kundalini Yoga engages all ten bodies, therefore working on multiple levels in a deep way.

Our 7th and 8th Bodies: Living Life Strong

Out of the ten bodies we have, the two that I like to pay particular attention to are the pranic and auric bodies. They are closely tied to our physical and mental health in a way in which most of us are familiar, and in many ways, are our first lines of defense.
