Excerpt from the book Enlightened Bodies: Exploring Physical & Subtle Human Anatomy, published by KRI
The Sixth Light Body
The Arcline is a line of energy that extends over the head from ear to ear (imagine halos in medieval religious paintings). Women have a second Arcline that extends in front of the body from nipple to nipple, which creates the safe nurturing space necessary if they choose to have children and breastfeed.
A strong Arcline gives the power of prayer—the power to take the desire to serve humanity out of the theoretical and into every day action.
With a weak Arcline, it is easy to feel overexposed to other people’s misery or sadness; and when overwhelmed by all the pain in the world, one is unable to act effectively.
