Seeing etheric presence

Shiva said: Kind Devi, enter etheric presence pervading far above and below your form.
This method can be done only if you have done "Touching as a Feather." It can be done separately also, but then it will be very difficult. But if you do the other first, then it is good to do the second and very easy.


Whenever it happens that you feel light, levitating, as if you can fly, suddenly you will become aware that around your body form there is a bluish light. But that you can see only when you feel that you can levitate, that your body can fly, that it has become light, completely free of any burden, completely free of any gravitation towards the earth. Whenever you feel this weightlessness, just with closed eyes become aware of the form of your body. Just with closed eyes, feel your toes and their form, and the legs and their form, and then the form of the whole body. If you are sitting in siddhasana, just like a Buddha, then feel the form while sitting like a Buddha. Inside just try to feel the form of your body. It will become apparent, it will appear before you, and you will simultaneously become aware that just around the form there is a bluish light.

Do it with closed eyes in the beginning. And when this light goes on spreading and you feel an aura, a bluish aura, all around the form, then sometimes while doing it at night with no light in a dark room, open your eyes and you will see it exactly around your body - a bluish form, just light, blue light, all around your body. If you actually want to see it, not with closed eyes, but with open eyes, do it in a dark room with no light at all. This bluish form, this bluish light, is the presence of the etheric body. You have many bodies. This technique is concerned with the etheric body, and through the etheric body you can enter into the highest ecstasy. There are seven bodies, and every body can be used to enter into the divine; every body is just a door.

This technique uses the etheric body, and the etheric body is the easiest to realize. The deeper the body, the more difficult, but the etheric body is just near you, just near the physical. It is just near. The second form is of the etheric - just around you, just around your body.
It penetrates your body and it is also around your body just like a hazy light, a blue light, hanging all around like a loose robe. Whenever someone loves you, whenever someone touches you with deep love, he touches your etheric body. That's why you feel it as such a soothing thing. It has even been photographed. Two lovers in deep love, making love: if their intercourse can continue beyond a certain limit, beyond forty minutes, and there is no ejaculation, around both the bodies, deep in love, a blue light appears. It has even been photographed. First you will have to become aware of the form that surrounds your physical form, and when you have become aware, then help it to grow, help it to increase and expand. What can you do? Just sitting silently, looking at it; not doing anything, just looking at the bluish form around you; not doing anything, just looking at it -you will feel it is increasing, spreading, becoming bigger and bigger. Because when you are not doing anything, the whole energy goes to the etheric. Remember this. When you are doing anything, the energy is taken out of the etheric.

When you are not doing anything, your energy is not moving out. It goes to the etheric. It is accumulated there. Your etheric body becomes an electric reservoir. And the more it grows, the more you become silent. The more you become silent, the more it grows. And once you know how to give energy to the etheric body and how not to waste it unnecessarily, you have come to realize; you have come to know about a secret key.
