Yes… The “energy body” of course made me think of our “spirits” and seems a sort of seudo scientific explanation. I am completely open-minded…I use the term “seudo” because I do not believe it can be measured or quantified with the instruments we have available technologically at this time?
It’s really interesting!
It made me think about when I was in college and working my way through with the job as a nurse assistant at a nursing home. I sat by, being a companion, while people I had cared for for months and even a couple years died.
Or rather – as I watched them – they seemed more to relinquish their bodies. This may sound incredible…but as they died, and it was slow often, sometimes they would be in the throws of death for two or three days – seeming to cling to their life in their bodies – it seemed like the release of spirit from body was like the slow release of “Velcro”. In fact, and this may sound insane, but it was a sort of noise I heard time and again while we tried to comfort the dying. It seemed like a ticking sound until I heard velcro slowly being released… That was the sound of slowly dying to me… (of very old age I will add – none of our dying residents was under age of 80 or more).
I do not mean to sound crude. I have sort of a logical and scientific mind in it’s way…heh…and it was not an undignified sound or experience. I have noticed that same “sensation” with animals struggling with death after being hit by a car, and I met one man in a wheel chair at the airport who was not allowed to board the plane. He was dying… He was dying slowly and they tried to put him on a flight home! (Passing strangers around this poor, struggling, man seemed to know he was dying but his own family????). I will never forget that.
This was probably back in 1996 – but at that time there was a chapel in the airport. I asked the man if he would like to go there, and he – through his struggle – nodded broadly and I brought him there with a ticket agent from the airline. The family left him to our care…they seemed so detached and frightened. Back in 1996 there was also a preist who donated time at the airport, and he came, and I had to go back to my business but the ticket agent said the man died half an hour later after the paramedics came and took him to the ambulence.
This study is also a study of death of our bodies, life of our bodies, our spirits, our spiritual energy, and in that it is quite beautiful. (Hate to sound groovy – but I find it so).
It causes me to wonder about other matters of life, death, dying and our spirits and the energy of the spirit. Such as, do we who most cling to the life of our bodies but ignore our spirits have a more difficult time releasing our earthly lives? Do those small babies who do not stay long with us, likewise have a less desire to stay with their earthly bodies?
I think we know so little about the spirit and the body…it is no wonder Modern Medicine is yet as barbaric as it is… I believe in medicine, I believe in doctors, surgery and the like. I strongly encourage them, but I hope more study of that missing spiritual “body energy”(not religious)
connection which seems to have begun continues.
In the meantime, I will continue with the exercises to experience what I find for myself. I do like to prove things to myself…LOL!
But as one who knew nothing of astral projection…those are my thoughts.
