Definition. The aura is the glow or radiance around all physical bodies - human, animal and plant. It is very real, even though most people cannot see it. It is not occult or strange.
The aura exists because life is not merely physical, as some believe. Life is also an electrical phenomenon. For this reason, we all have electrical fields around and within the body. By understanding this, you will gain a much greater appreciation for yourself and for others.
Halos. Some people can see the aura, and some artists have drawn it quite accurately. For example, the halo that is often drawn around saints and other holy men and women is the aura. The aura is easier to see around holy people because it is brighter. A section later in this article discusses detection of the aura.
The brightness, color, size, shape, density and other qualities of the aura provide a tremendous amount of information about a person or creature. These depend upon one’s state of health, thoughts, feelings, moods, and one’s level of development. This article is a very brief introduction to this enormous subject.
COMPONENTS OF THE AURA
A number of components blend together to form the human or animal aura. In most people they are:
1. The radiance of the three dantiens. These are three balls of subtle energy located in the head, the heart area, and the lower abdomen. For details, read The Dantiens.
2. The radiance of the seven physical energy centers. The energy centers are spinning vortices of subtle energy that are lined up along the midline of the body, from the groin area to the head. For details, read The Energy Centers.
These two subtle energy systems actually form and maintain the physical body and the other energy fields, as well.
3. The radiance or glow of the physical body. Each cell of our bodies is a tiny electric device that gives off a slight glow.
4. The radiance of the trillions of souls that are in and around the body. Souls can be undeveloped, in which case they have less of a glow. Some, however, are more developed and glow brighter.
5. The radiance of what are called the subtle energy fields or “subtle bodies”. In addition to a physical body, everyone is born with an astral energy field. It is located in the same area as the physical body and gives off a glow that is determined by one’s emotional state and thoughts.
Between the age of 10 and 30, everyone develops an etheric energy field or “etheric body”. This is a more advanced subtle energy field, or energy body. It develops as one uses the mind for constructive purposes and as a person overcomes hardships by using the brain rather than by “getting by” using cunning, cleverness, brute force or laziness.
When it first forms, the etheric energy field is about the size of the physical body. It is in the same location as the physical body, except that there are two of them, one right side up and one upside down. They give off a glow that contributes to a person’s aura.
The growth of the subtle energy fields is programmed genetically in our DNA. For details, read The Energy Fields.
The above are the main components of most people’s auras. If a person becomes developed by following a development program, their aura will also be influenced by the presence of higher subtle energy fields, the merkaba, and the plumes. These cause the aura to be much brighter and more beautiful.
HEALTH AND THE AURA
A healthy person has a brighter aura. People who are near death have very dim auras. One’s race, skin color, or religion has nothing to do with this.
A healthy person also usually has an aura that is more beautiful, whiter, and lighter in color. The aura of those who are ill is usually dull, darker, muddy looking, and often has a greenish or yellowish tint. Near death, the aura almost disappears because it is so dark and small.
THE AURA OF BABIES
The aura of babies is unique because it is always somewhat bright and cheery-looking. However, on earth this does not last too long. Usually, by the time the baby is three years old, the aura has faded in brightness and dulled in luster.
This is always due to the use of vaccines, bottle feeding instead of prolonged breastfeeding for up to 3 years, and due to giving babies antibiotics and other medical drugs.
Interestingly, if a baby is breastfed, then the baby’s aura always remains excellent until breastfeeding ends. This is just one reason to continue breastfeeding for 3 years, or even longer if the baby wants it.
HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND THE AURA
In some people, even more subtle and more amazing energy bodies also develop soon after the etheric body develops. This is the first step toward the advanced state of human life that is possible for human beings on planet earth. When this occurs, a person is said to be somewhat developed.
This is a wonderful achievement that few accomplish, although it is within the realm of possibility for anyone who is reading this article. It simply requires following the rules and ideas set down in the articles on this website.
Development, as the word is used on this website, is fulfilling the complete genetic potential of a human being. It has a great effect upon the aura or radiance of a person. For details, read Introduction To Development.
If a person develops by following a development program, other components enter into the formation of the aura. These include:
1. The dantiens glow more brightly.
2. The seven physical energy centers grow larger and glow much more brightly.
3. The etheric energy field grows much larger and glows more brightly. In addition, five other energy fields develop, each of which glows as well.
4. At a certain point in early development, a spherical energy field appears around a person. For details, read The Merkaba.
5. With continued development, rays of energy begin to emanate from the top of the head. For details, read The Plumes.
Early development the most difficult. In fact, the hardest part of developing the advanced aura and subtle bodies is the beginning, by far. It is like trying to blast off in a rocket and escape the earth’s gravity – the hardest part is getting out of the lower atmosphere. Once you are free of that, the rest of the trip into outer space is easy.
This is exactly how it is with what is called mental or spiritual development. Overcoming the initial resistance and inertia of the physical body takes years in most cases, which is why most religions suggest studying hard and following all the rules, even if you do not understand them. Then, once one has overcome the inertia of the physical body, development becomes much easier.
In earlier times, one almost had to enter a monastery to initiate the process. Today it is not as hard, however, for many people because people are wealthier, which means they have more time in some cases. Also, websites such as this one are available that can guide a person step by step, in a way, that was not available in earlier days when one needed a personal guide. This is still required in the advanced stages, but not for the earlier ones that are of interest to most people. The advice on this website about diet, lifestyle, and more will suffice.
Sequence of development. At first, the higher energy fields or bodies take form, but are not active. Then, at a certain point, each of the higher bodies slowly fills with light energy or certain particles that activate or “glow” the bodies. This means the higher fields or bodies are now usable and “turned on”. This is the basic sequence of early development of a human being.
Advantages and benefits of development. These are many and primarily include a longer life and better health. However, since the mind is developing itself to a high degree, it brings with it a calmer personality and a much sharper mind. A better memory and many other aspects of the personality develop as well. One will have more abilities, more talents and more intuition than before. At a point, one can access guidance, which helps one survive and succeed in life.
SEEING AND UNDERSTANDING THE AURA
Seeing the aura. The aura can be seen by some people naturally. They usually describe a sort of glow or energy around every living person. A dead person does not have much of an aura, although every object, even a rock or a tree, has a very slight aura, as it is a property of all matter on earth. It is a physics property in this sense.
The very barest rudiments of the human or other auras can be measured and photographed using electro-photography or so-called Kirlian electro-photography after the Russian scientist who invented the basic technique. Kirlian was a photographer who could naturally see the aura, even in a photo. All photos, even on computers, show the entire aura, which is interesting since no one is trying to photograph it there.
Dr. Kirlian found a way to place objects or a person’s hand, for example, in a strong electromagnetic field or high-voltage field that emphasizes just certain aspects of the aura. One can buy such setups via the internet. With this arrangement, the glow of the person’s aura or that of the object is easy to see.
The size of the aura. The aura of a person or object actually radiates indefinitely, but it weakens in strength based on the square of the distance from the radiating object. Thus, with most people for example, it is only visible for a few inches around the body. If one is further away than this, it becomes too weak to view.
AN ENORMOUS STUDY
The aura reflects and reveals ALL of the activities of the person, from his thoughts and emotions, to the food one is digesting, to the state of health and the state of the energy centers and much more.
It is so much that it causes information overload. Developed masters who can see the aura spend years and years learning about its meaning.
While few people can see auras, everyone feels them to some extent when they interact with others, in particular. Some also feel them when they enter a building or location, perhaps, or go to a party or gathering.
People often describe other people with words such as "warm", "cold", "intense", "bubbly", "hard", "soft", "strong", "weak", "open" or "closed". These have to do with the aura or radiance of the person.
A look at the aura would reveal these traits actually exist in the energy field of the person. In other words, these descriptions of a person are very real at some energetic level. They are not figments of the person’s imagination.
There are a number of books written about the aura written by people who can see the aura. Among the best are those by Barbara Brennon such as Hands Of Light. An older book that is very good is The Human Aura by Kilner.
The internet also contains a number of articles about the aura.
