Kundalini, Prana, and Fohat … by Arthur E. Powell … with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; first compiled on 27 Nov 2013

Dear Ones,

The below passage from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, describes three of the forces in the Plane of Forces (see my blog category: Plane of Forces).

Powell speaks of Kundalini, Prana, and Fohat. Missing from this quotation are the forces of electricity, gravity and magnetism …

“…Kundalini, or the serpent-fire, which wells up from the interior of the human body, belongs to the First Outpouring, and exists on all planes of which we know anything. This force of Kundalini is, of course quite distinct from Prana or Vitality, which belongs to the Second Outpouring, and also from Fohat, i.e.., from all forms of physical energy such as electricity, light, heat, etc. (vide ‘The Etheric Double,’ ‘The Astral Body’ and ‘The Mental Body,’ passim).” (1)

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
