The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Emotional Body

DEFINITIONS

Emotional Body:

An alternate name for Astral Body or vehicle, used by many modern esoteric writers like Henry T. Laurency and Lee Bladon because they consider the substance of the astral (emotional) plane or world to be best defined as emotional as is the consciousness of that body and level. The strength and the challenges are emotional.

The emotional body is the primary vehicle for consciousness between incarnations, first dissolving at the three lowest sub-planes so as no longer to be in contact with the physical world. The three highest sub-planes provide the substance fulfilling personal and religious fantasies without any veracity from the Mental and Causal levels.
