Yes true.but i'm under the impression that all blockages can be removed in this lifetime,so what could block without a possibility of unblocking in this lifetime?

but i would think that there are many many blockages and its matter of realization and merit and wisdom that you transform into such advanced being that you manifest rainbow body in this life.
i have a book by ChNN named something rainbow body, i havent read it but i think its a story of a yogi and something with rainbow body, might have something else also in it other than the story. if you want it i can send it to you via email or skype.
