1.6 Understanding Your Spiritual Anatomy

Before you delve into this profound topic on the ascension, it is important to understand a little bit about your spiritual anatomy.

The ascended masters teach that you have four lower bodies. These are:

  1. Etheric or memory body
  2. Mental body
  3. Emotional body
  4. Physical body

You also have three higher bodies or spiritual bodies. These are:

  1. Higher Self or Christ Self
  2. Causal Body
  3. I AM Presence

Your mastery and spiritual attainment is stored in these three higher bodies. It is who you are on inner levels. This is the aspect of yourself that you desire to connect with so you can manifest in the physical plane this mastery that you already have at inner levels of your being. As depicted in this beautiful Chart of the Divine Self you see three figures: the upper, middle and lower figure.

The upper figure is the I AM Presence. It is the highest manifestation of your Divine Self. Surrounding the white light of the I AM Presence are interconnecting color spheres known as the Causal Body.

I AM Presence and Causal Body

This is your cosmic bank account. In the seven spheres of our Causal Body is stored all of the light you have garnered over the centuries as you have re-embodied—all the light that you have qualified correctly with harmony, peace and love. We can call forth this light and use it for your mastery and personal healing.

The middle figure represents your Higher Self, which acts as mediator between your Divine Self and your soul. Other terms for this self are the Holy Christ Self, the Krishna consciousness, or the higher mental body.

The lower figure represents your soul as it is evolving in time and space, standing in the healing light of the violet transmuting flame. The flame of the Christ that is the spark of life that you see anchored in the heart center of this lower figure is the sacred trinity of power (blue), wisdom (yellow) and love (pink) and the manifestation of the sacred fire. This divine spark is the indwelling presence of God anchored right within your body temple.

This complete image of your spiritual anatomy is how the angels see you when they look upon you from the higher octaves of light where they reside.

If you understand your spiritual bodies and their purpose, it will be easy to grasp how your soul can ascend back to God at the conclusion of this life if you apply the teachings of the ascended masters.

Now that you have a vision of your spiritual bodies, let’s watch a short video of Mrs. Prophet giving a short teaching on your Divine Self.
