Term: etheric body

DEFINITIONS

Etheric Body: An emanation of all created things. Halfway between the astral and the physical.
source: Modern Magick, by Donald Michael Kraig

Etheric Body:

The second, or energy body that is closest to the physical body. As with all the subtle bodies, it has two layers:

The first, sometimes called the "Etheric Double," is fully coincident with the physical body in health and extends about an inch beyond physical skin. It is the psycho-physical circuitry of the human body (the  chakras, nadis, and meridians) through which the life-force flows under direction of the astral matrix. To clairvoyant vision, it is the health aura and appears as very fine needles of radiation—standing straight up in health and lying down in illness.

The second layer, along with the astral and mental bodies, forms the egg-shaped aura surrounding the human body. It is an interface between the individual and dynamic planetary energies and cosmic forces the sustain life.

The Etheric Body can be projected (see Etheric Projection) and can be molded by intense thought and thus shape the physical body.

Carl Llewellyn Weschcke

In western ceremonial magick, there is often a tendency to view a magickal operation as something that is at odds with the natural order of the universe. This is very much the core of the western mindset, where nature is something external to oneself to be "conquered." Human individuality and the Will of the magician are thought to be somehow... read this article
