Aura Healing & Therapy
What it is
When we are healthy the eight colours in the auric field are clear and luminous, however when our bodies are out of balance, particular colours may appear darker or paler. The reason why we cannot see the colours of our aura is that they vibrate at a very fast rate making them invisible to the human eye.
The aura is made up of 3 distinct layers:
The Etheric Body-
This is the first band, it is thin and it is an exact duplicate of the physical body. It is invisible to the human eye due to it's high rate of vibration. It acts as a type of vibrational sieve that allows vibrations from other subtle bodies to flow into the physical body and vibrations from the physical body to flow outward.
Astral or Emotional Body-
This is the second band and it extends around us for up to about a meter and it is made up of a changing array of colours that reflect our moods and emotions.
The Mental Body-
This layer extends outward from the astral body and it is filled with energy from our thought waves. It interacts with the astral and etheric bodies and it therefore influences the type of energy balance in those areas.
What is Aura Therapy?
Aura therapy uses visible magnetism to help fight disease. The practitioners who practice this therapy describe the aura as a magnetic field around the body that interacts continually with other auras in the environment. These individual auras are believed to be in contact with the universal field of spiritual energy, from which they draw their power. Many practitioners say that they can see the aura as an area of light around the patient, and then use them to aid treatment. Aura therapists say that the aura determines our first responses to people and situations and is quicker and more sensitive gauge than many more rational faculties. The auras of plants, animals and minerals are believed to communicate and interact continually with one another as part of a single living system. Each person's aura is made up of all the radiations from the cells and chemicals in his body, and their interactions.
Colours of the Aura
The colours that emanate from a person are believed to reveal his nature and physical and emotional state.
RED: This is the colour of life and physical vigour, it represents strength, passion and energy and it is associated with the co-ordination of the person as a whole. Tension or nervousness may show as light red, anger or sensuality as dark red. An excessive amount of red in an aura is said to indicate selfishness, willfulness or an overvaluing of material things. Therapeutically red is associated with nerve endings, excretory functions and the sex glands.
ORANGE: Associated with the energy and health and it indicates a strong personality, which is also considerate of others. Too much orange shows an overemphasis on selfish goals or ambitions. Orange is also the colour of the adrenal glands, sexual functioning and the spleen. It can also indicate fear, illusion and disillusionment.
YELLOW: Intellect and optimism are indicated or in some cases worry and frustration. If the yellow is pale there may be weakness or indecisiveness. Golden yellow is a sign of spiritual development and insight. Yellow is also associated with the pancreas, reproduction, childbirth and the digestive system.
GREEN: This is the colour of nature, regeneration and healing. It shows a lively, adaptable personality and a versatile mind. It is associated with the heart, circulatory system and the thymus gland.
BLUE: Integrity, inspiration and idealism are associated with blue. Pale blue indicates a potential for learning and scholarship. Physically blue is the colour of the thyroid gland, and it is associated with the ears, nose and throat, and with breathing and speech.
INDIGO: This indicates a tendency to act on intuition and a search for spiritual truth. It indicates moral values and a transcendence of the physical world. A predominance of indigo in an aura signifies calmness and benevolence. If it is not well-balanced, it signifies irritability. It is also associated with the lymphatic system and pituitary gland.
VIOLET: This is the colour of spiritual enlightenment, love and insight. It represents the pineal body, the nervous system and the integration of the whole body.
BLACK and GREY: These colours show that the aura has been damaged by negative thoughts or emotions, stress or illness or by undergoing anesthesia. Black is also a colour that can be used by the aura to "block" energies.
WHITE: Perfection, the ideal and truth are represented by this colour. It has a balancing effect on black or grey in the aura.
