Once an important topic of interest in the Extrasensory Perceptive 1970's, the aura of the human body has always been a key indicator of both psychic and physical well-being. The Aura is best described in the 1980 blockbuster "The Empire Strikes Back"(the second film in the original Star Wars Trilogy). In the movie, a master teacher named Yoda trains Luke Skywalker to employ the "Force" effectively. When asked about its nature, Yoda describes the Force as an energy created by Life Itself and promotes its growth throughout Creation.
In addition, in the first installment of the Star Wars film series, another Jedi master (Obi-Wan Kenobi) describes it as directing one's movements, but also fulfilling commands (not unlike how the Holy Spirit is related in the Christian Bible's Acts of the Apostles). Human imagination frequently touches upon, however accidentally, actual truth.
Nourish Your Aura
That being established, we know the aura to be a sign and by-product of life. It is not the soul specifically, but rather, the body "plus". Shamans have known and worked with this knowledge for millennia. Their understanding of medicine is grounded in it. Both bodies fall naturally within the principles of electromagnetic physics and act upon one another in their earthly environment. The ancient Egyptians well understood this. Their care for the welfare of the aura is apparent in the way they made their offerings for deceased loved ones that the dead might be "nourished" enough to continue with the living by tending to their auras or "ka". The consumption of pure foods, preferably raw or steamed vegetables, fine breads, and clear soup broths, and aromatic flowers, with juices, and fruits once a week at least was conducive good health.
For those less inclined or unable to make dietetic changes, it is best to focus on detoxification of the physical body, and hence, the aura body as well. Like our dear planet Earth, we too are able to self-heal and regenerate the metabolism so long as life is present. In fact, most power/energy building starts with revitalizing our auric space. Exposure to fresh air and indirect sunshine allows the whole person (flesh and soul) to absorb solar photons and free-flowing ions to collect and circulate into and around us.
Just 30 minutes of quiet sitting perhaps with harmonious music coupled with deliberate deep breathing, will double the power of a person's nervous system and mental powers as well as improve regenerative processes. Great progress can be detected within a single session. The aura doubles as both a protective shell and versatile tool subject to the person's will.
Develop the Ability to See Your Aura
Russian engineer Semyon Kirlian and his wife Valentina, perfected a photographic technique in 1939 known as Kirlian Photography for proving and observing the behavior of the aura in humans and plants. If one wishes to develop the ability to see the aura, the best time to attempt it is under twilight conditions, perhaps after the breathing sessions previously noted. Regard the spaces just out of eyeshot surrounding the hands and fingers, and one will gradually perceive a radiation pulse. Practice will begin to define colors. It's like the perfect mood ring except that the colors reveal the qualities of the soul.
Colors That Show Quality of Life/Consciousness:
- Orange and Yellow are very common to be seen in spirit-orbs. They indicate optimism, contentment, and the sense of home and belonging. Orange is seen in people who volunteer, attend lodges or churches, and dedicated groups.
- Blues are practically angelic. Benevolent and ascending consciousness. Noble character. Spiritual power.
- Green is usually heroic, protective, and nurturing. Service to details toward a goal. Great endurance.
- Violet is the color of vast experience and the collective or Cosmic Consciousness (the repository of all information).
- Dark Red denotes physical exertion, sports, weightlifting and combat, while Bright Red shows a person who is about to burst on the scene or activity with much pent-up energy. Sex, Arguments, Acting, and Dancing may be present.
- Brown reveals physical or mental degeneration which can be good or bad.
- Grey is usually an outside pollution in the spirit or astral plane.
- Black is a sign of brooding self-harm, a developed cause for terminal illness, and many psychics believe it to portend fatality or some external evil.
Whether a person feels themselves to be a psychic or not (for all humanity is a psychic race to varying degrees), the aura is definitely an important part of our biological health. Someday our scientific acumen will recognize and embrace this ancient wisdom.
