The astral body is also called the emotional body. It comprises the emotional world of each individual. It is connected with the astral plane but also interpenetrates both the physical and etheric body.
The Earth Herself has an astral body too. It includes all the feelings and emotions of all of humanity ranging from animalistic greed and violence to the most sublime emanations of love and devotion.
Clairvoyants sometimes can perceive these feelings taking on literal shape and color. However, most of us can feel energies too. We may walk in a room and feel a warm, welcoming embrace or a cold, even malevolent presence. Or we may enter a church and immediately Spiritual devotion fills our hearts.
The Integrated Ascended Master makes a conscious effort to transcend all negative ego/ fear-based/ separative/ dualistic/ illusionary/ selfish/ lower-self feelings and emotions and only experiences feelings of love, joy, happiness and peace.
He realizes that his thoughts create his feelings and emotions, and that he has been given free will to think whatever he wants! So if he wants to only have positive feelings and emotions, then all he has to do is think happy and joyous thoughts!
Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development. http://www.iamuniversity.org
Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
