Our Aka Bodies
Each individual has
three subtle bodies, one for each of the three selves. These subtle
bodies are called aka bodies are referred to as the aka body of
the lower self, the middle self and the Higher Self. They are also known
as our shadow bodies, however, you more than likely have heard of
them as our auras.
The aka bodies are
also our spirit bodies. Some people theorize that each is the sum total
of the individual energies of the physical body and the three selves.
That is, the aka body of the lower self is the sum total of all of the
energies of the physical body and the lower self while the aka body of
the middle self is the sum total of the energies of the middle self and
similarly with the Higher Self.
Each aka body is
separate of the other, however each is connected to the other by a cord
of energy referred to in Huna as an aka cord. The cord between
the physical body and the lower self is generally called the Silver
cord, while the cord between the lower self and the Higher Self is
called the Golden cord. There is no cord between the middle self
and the Higher Self and this is the reason why these two bodies cannot
While it is said
that communication is sent either up or down the cord, it is really
meant that messages are sent telepathically using the energy conduit of
the cords to focus the message and to direct it to where it is being
When the silver
cord, the energy conduit between the lower self and the body is cut, the
physical body loses its life source and death occurs. As long as the
silver cord is intact, no matter where the lower self or its aka body
are, physical life can exist. The aka bodies of the middle and lower
selves can leave the physical body at will. We refer to this as astral
travel. While the silver cord is intact, the aka bodies of the lower and
middle selves can go anywhere at the speed of light directed only by
The aka body of the
physical body is also aka body of the lower self. It contains a blue
print of the structure of the body, its cells, organs and chemical
and electrical processes. In healing, this blue print can be used to
reconstruct injured organs and tissues. The ancient kahuna used this
blue print for their instant healing as they would send mana (and
possibly mana-mana or even Mana Loa) to the aka body of an injured or
ill person calling on it to heal the body according to its blue print.
Using this technique, they could create instant healing. This type of
work was very similar to the biblical description of how Jesus healed.
In Hawaiian, the word for disciple means those that come together to
breathe. This implied that Jesus used breath to heal and that he may
have joined forces with his disciples, as the kahuna were known to do,
to create all sorts of miracles including instant healing or even
raising the dead.
The aka body of the
lower self surrounds the physical body and takes its shape. It holds
copies of all of the memories that the lower self holds for both the
physical body and the middle self. When separated it can create an exact
duplicate physical body that can think, talk and walk. It can fully use
its aka senses which are duplicate of the physical senses. This
description allows us to consider that some of the documented stories
where a person was known to be in two places at the same time could be
answered and understood as the power of the aka bodies. Here the
physical body is in one place, while the aka body taking a physical form
could be in an entirely different place, often hundreds and even
thousands of miles away.
The aka body of the
Higher Self is said to reside slightly above the crown of the head and
either to its left or right. This is the position that was often drawn
in medieval paintings representing the crown or halo above the heads of
Jesus and the other saints. It is also traditionally the same area where
the king, queen, emperor and empress wear their crowns.
The Physical Body
The three selves
and their aka bodies inhabit the physical body much like we live in our
home or better still drive our automobile. As the driver of the
automobile we may often think of our self as if we are the automobile.
If we see an opening to go through, we think of ourselves as going
through the opening. If the opening is tight, we may even cringe a
little as we enter the opening even though we ourselves are within the
automobile and protected by it.
When the silver
cord is broken the body separates from us and we exist only as aka
bodies. We think of this as death but in Huna there is no such thing as
death. Our aka bodies and our three selves are simply energy. And as
physics tells us energy can never be created nor destroyed. Hence we
will exist for ever. Only the body dies and it is merely a shell that we
have been using in this particular life. Overall, it is a little
consequence to who we really are.
The life force
energy we use, mana and mana-mana, are useful only while we have a body.
They are necessary to help the body maintain its homeostasis and they
are important for our overall survival, to allow us to move around, and
to change the physical realm we live in. Mana Loa stays with the Higher
Self. When death occurs, the aka bodies maintain mana and mana-mana for
use in the next dimension.
The soul is
considered to be meaningless in Huna. While it exists, there is very
little said about it. Instead, one may talk about spirit or the sum
total of all the three selves operating in the physical world, yet
unseen by themselves or by others. There is little more that can be said
about the concept of the soul, however, it has a sense of hidden meaning
which has not yet been fully disclosed.
Purpose of Life
The overall purpose
of life in Huna is in a sense, evolution. Inorganic energy or possibly
better, inorganic consciousness, evolves to organic life and
consciousness, then to plant life and consciousness, then to an animal
form and consciousness (the lower self), and finally, into a human
life-form with human consciousness (middle self). The lower self is
essentially a highly evolved animal spirit. It has learned its lessons
over many lifetimes and it becomes a lower self for the purpose of
learning how to evolve itself to become fully human as a middle self.
According to Huna
the role of the middle self therefore is not just survival of the body
and the other two entities which inhabit it, but also to assist the
lower self in eventually becoming a middle self. It does this by being
its teacher and guide. If it does its work well, the lower self will one
day become a middle self. It is also part of the middle self's role to
evolve itself to eventually become a Higher Self. This is where the role
of religion is supposed to help us, to know that we are evolving and for
middle self to work with Higher Self to evolve. The role of the
priesthood traditionally was not to preach religion, but to act as a
guide or doorkeeper to assist members of the tribe or sect to grow, live
the hurtless life and understand the principals of the Intelligent
Universe that are needed for the middle self to die and be reborn as a
This is clearly
seen in the way Long looks at the story of Jesus. He tells us that if we
use the hidden Huna code it tells us that Jesus was a man (middle self)
who was on the threshold of evolving to become a Higher Self. Long
suggests that some of the time when Jesus refers to the Father, he is
telling us he is a man who recognizes that not only he, but all of us,
have Higher Selves. At other times Long tells us that Jesus has already
evolved and talks to us as an evolved Higher Self. He is, in a sense,
both a highly evolved middle self and a transfiguring Higher Self. He
helps us to see both roles and how to move from one to the other. He
tells us that death is not the end but rather a new dimension where we
shepard those who become our flock, as a Higher Self.
Each aspect the
three selves, along with their aka bodies and mana, have a sense of
evolving from a lower level to a higher state. Much like we think of the
Universe itself. The goal of the lower self is to become a middle self
and the goal of the middle self is to evolve to become a Higher Self.
The goal of the Higher Self is to become part of the Poe Aumakua and
beyond this it is possible that there are higher and higher realms which
one can ultimately evolve to.
Since life is about
evolution, we should also now be clear that death is also about
evolution. One cannot evolve past a certain level in a specific physical
body. Hence, we are born, we grow, we learn, we evolve, we die, we shed
our physical body and then we are reborn, to grow, learn, evolve, die
and start the process all over once again. How long this goes on is
unknown. It is possible that it continues until we evolve back into the
form of the Godhead. It is probably obvious by now that this concept
exists outside of time, space and measurement and outside of our ability
to totally comprehend.
Therefore for the
true believer of Huna, all that counts is right now, learning, growing,
and living the hurtless life. This is what the Godhead asks of us. Our
role ultimately is to work for and wait for the time when we reach the
level of a Higher Self.
If we live more
than one life, even many, it is likely that we will return in both male
and female bodies, but our spirit may stay more male or more female.
Hence, we have men trapped in women's body's and women in men's body's.
Being sexist may delay our evolutionary goals, being open and living in
love may speed them up.
