Esoteric Healing - Chapter I - The Psychological Causes of Disease
From the above remarks it will be seen that disease emerges into the physical body from the world of the unseen, and from the use, or misuse, of the subtler forces on the inner planes. It must be remembered, however, that disease - as it expresses itself in man - can be generally regarded as due to the following causes, and students would do well to have this most carefully in mind as they ponder on these matters:
  1. Individual disease, due to interior conditions in a man's own equipment, to his mental state, or to an emotional [49] condition which can produce serious ills. This is inherited from the past.
  2. Disease inherent in humanity as a whole. There are certain diseases to which all men are prone; the germs of these diseases are latent in the physical vehicles of the majority of men, only awaiting predisposing conditions in order to manifest. They might be regarded as group diseases.
  3. Diseases which are, curiously enough, accidental. To these a man falls heir when, for instance, he succumbs to some infectious or contagious complaint.
  4. Diseases inherent in the soil. Of these as yet but little is known. The soil of our earth, however, is very ancient, and is impregnated with disease germs which take their toll of the vegetable, animal and human kingdoms, manifesting differently in each, yet being due basically to the same causes.
  5. Diseases which are the difficulties of mysticism. These are the peculiar ills and complaints which attack the disciples and aspirants of the world. These can be traced in every case to the pouring in of energy through centers which are not properly equipped, or adequately developed, to handle the force.

The above is a generalization which may be found useful.

The method whereby these astral forces (which are, as we know, pre-eminently the determining life forces for the majority of men at this time) work out into manifestation is a relatively simple matter. In the astral vehicle of expression there are, as you may realize, the correspondences of the seven centers in the etheric body. These are essentially the seven major focal points of force, and each of them is expressive of one of the seven ray energies. Let me first of all make clear which centers express these seven ray types: [50]

Center Ray Quality Origin
1. Head Center 1st The Divine Will Monadic
2. Ajna Center 7th Organization
3. Heart Center 2nd Love-Wisdom
Group love
4. Throat Center 5th Creativity Mental
5. Solar Plexus 6th Emotion - Desire Astral
6. Sacral Center 3rd Reproduction Etheric
7. Base of Spine 4th Harmony
Union through conflict
Note: In the fourth kingdom, the human, it is the energy of the fourth ray which, cooperating with the first ray, eventually brings synthesis. There is a close relation between the highest center (the head center), and that at the base of the spine. This fourth type of energy thus expresses itself in cooperation with the first type because we are still Atlantean in our polarization, and that civilization was the fourth in order. It is very largely the work done in our fifth civilization, our present Aryan race, which will, in cooperation with the fifth principle of the mind, bring a shift into a higher level of consciousness. This will produce a harmonizing of all the centers through an act of the will, intellectually and intelligently applied, with the objective of producing harmony. This point warrants thought.

On the astral plane there will also be found in every astral body seven corresponding focal points through which energy can enter, raying forth then into the vital centers in the etheric physical body as seven differentiated types of force. These types of force produce both bad and good effects, according to the quality of the negative dense physical body. These differ according to the type of ray or force, and it may be interesting if I here indicate to you the good and the bad effects and the corresponding diseases. [51]
