All of the spirits in the spiritual realm have garments and clothes covering them, but those of the lower and darker spheres appear to be in their naked spiritual body. And those lower still than these dark realms have naked spiritual bodies which are so altered that they appear ugly and do not even look human.
The spirits in the highest realms have the brightest garments. The aura or light of these garments emanates from the mind of each spirit being. The aura or light that is emanated forms the spiritual garment for the spirit body.
At physical death, spirits are still dominated by the earthly influences of the mind and thus produce the particular earthly fashions of the spiritual garments that clothe their spirit bodies. But as the spirit matures and learns control of their mind and the spiritual forces at their disposal, they gain more control of their spiritual garments.
The intensity or radiant brightness of their garments is still governed by their growth into higher spheres. In the spiritual world, there are more colours than we can see in the physical realm – not just seven colours of the rainbow and their intermediate states but thousands of ranges of colours. The character, strengths, weaknesses and development of the spirit being are reflected in the colour and brightness of their garments.
In the spirit world, everyone manifests in full and clear view to all their spiritual qualities and exact development level of their spiritual life in their spiritual body and in their spiritual clothing. Even on the earth, humans whose spirits are pure have a radiant light that shines around them like a garment. This is invisible to the physical earth but is visible to the spiritual world.
Those whose hearts are evil have a dark mist that surrounds them. The greater the purity of heart and life, the brighter the light: the greater the evil in the heart, the greater the darkness that surrounds a human. Clothing that is made in the spiritual sphere, has textures and hues taken from the quality of the spiritual state of the wearer. Each particular sphere has its own unique tint of colour according to the occupation, interests, bend of mind, gifting or wisdom and knowledge of its inhabitants.
