The Astral Layer
This fourth layer is connected to the Heart Chakra and extends about twelve inches from the physical body.
This layer brings together the lower three and higher three auric layers.
It acts as a bridge between the denser physical vibrations of the lower layers, and the lighter spiritual vibrations of the higher layers.
This layer is often referred to as the Astral Body or the gateway to the astral plane.
This layer is the space where we understand and express our feelings and relationships with others.
Although the second layer corresponds to the emotions, the fourth astral layer carries octaves of the higher emotions such as compassion and deep love.
Negative expressions towards the self or others can cause imbalances in this layer, or blocks that affect the giving and receiving of love.
