The energetic "cocoons" mentioned above surround the bodies of all incarnate living beings. (They are also called
"ether bodies". But one should take into account that the meaning of the latter term is unclear: some authors may denote with it other structures and states, when they simply do not know what to call them). The
"cocoons" form of the aggregate biofields of all cells of the body. There can be multi-layer
"cocoons", i.e. they can consist of several layers of energies of different densities located at different distances from the body.
The "cocoons" of healthy people are more or less egg-shaped. But their borders can have either protuberances or dents against the diseased regions, which corresponds to either increased or decreased activity of the cells in the affected parts of the body. This is significant for performing extrasensory diagnostics and can be determined by palpating the boundaries of the
"cocoons" with the palm of the hand. But it preferable to learn to see the "cocoons" as well.
The latter can be mastered easier with one's own "cocoon" first, if one places the point from which one looks at about 50 centimeters behinds one's heels. After learning this one may watch the
"cocoons" of other people, animals and plants from one's own "cocoon".
