The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: mental body

DEFINITIONS

Mental Body:

The fourth body. The mental body "thinks" in abstract rather than emotional form. The lower mental body unites with the astral and etheric bodies as the personality for current incarnation. The higher mental body is home to the Soul between incarnations.
