notes on the energetic body
by Antero Alli
The energetic body is a term for a complex web of interactions of energy centers in The Physical Body which correspond to, what Hindu cosmology calls, "chakras". The primary centers are located in the center of the brain (6th chakra), the heart (4th chakra) and the belly (2nd chakra) with secondary centers at the top of the head (7th chakra), throat (5th chakra), solar plexus (3rd chakra) and base of the spine (1st chakra). The energetic body as a whole loses power to the degree any or all of these centers become depleted, drained, exhausted, over-stimulated, unstable, and/or disengaged (inert and latent).
On Activation of the Energetic Body
1) The energetic body carries the power of dreaming and of the power necessary for bringing dreams and intentions into manifestation. The two chief drains to the energetic body are a) courtship compulsion and b) self-pity. Remove these two drains and the energetic body regenerates itself. Do physical exercises to wake up the energetic body.
2) After you've increased your energy, practice impeccability; you'll know impeccability when you have no self interest. Act without expecting rewards or returns. When energy comes to you, it can guide you; the energy of the double, the ethereal body.
3) The assemblage point is a place of luminosity on the energetic body and lights the filaments of the subtle power of attention. When the filaments of the energetic body match those of the universe, perception takes place. You'll know when you are there - (you'll be) very quiet, unknown to yourself, you'll feel solitude but no loneliness.
On Gaining Power for the Energetic Body
The energetic body gains power to the degree any or all of these centers in The Body are fed by increasing the direct experience of the domains, actions, and essences they are linked with. As this feeding process is engaged and expressed through the body in action, in behavior, sounds, movement and repose, the energetic body gains power. Empowerment can also occur via negativa by shifting attention away from the "poor baby" position of self-pity and by redirecting courtship compulsions -- away from obsession on lovers and towards the transformation of that passion into Art.

The Action of sorcery is that of Dreaming yourself.
Society is oriented toward a "poor baby" or pity syndrome and a mating/courtship
compulsion. The self is presented as a "poor baby" to the world.
Stalking the self means seeing how you are living. Are you living as a poor baby
or feeding a poor baby ? if so, the assemblage point, or attention, has been fixated
in the poor baby position.
What sorcerers do: move attention away from the poor baby position.
How do you move the assemblage point? You need energy to move the assemblage
point away from poor baby. This may be obtained from not doing the presentation
of the self in everyday life and stop seeking courtship and feeding the poor baby.
Curtail neediness. "Poor Baby" ravages the energetic body.
Embarrassment disrupts the assemblage point and allows it to shift.
Blow your cover and the focus shifts away from the self if you do not
feed the poor embarrassed baby.
Controlled folly means blowing your cover on purpose. The practice of controlled folly
means you see the situation and you don't judge. Judging is death.
Don't poor baby yourself. Use devices to jolt yourself. Then you can move the
assemblage point up and down. The spine has its centers; chakras. Each center
feeds on different foods, or essences. Learn to feed the energetic body.
Cover up mirrors - (they reinforce agreements of appearance and fixate
attention on the self).
Not doing is the doing of sorcery.
