The aura consists of energetic layers, a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object. Some people consciously see or sense auric energy. Most children have a strong sense for this. The aura is not consistent, it can grow larger or smaller depending on situations and feelings. A blind lady I met when I was a child, told me she “felt” colors; she was a textile-artist and worked with wool – her work was amazing!
Auras are forever interacting and communicating; this is how we pick up subtle information about our surroundings, such as people we meet. Did you ever stop and think about how you perceive other people? Why do you feel good with some and bad with others? The same goes for places; auras communicate.
Some tips on how you – unknowingly – experience your aura:
- When you are in a crowded place other people are actually “in your space” (aura) and you feel cramped. Usually you feel “dirty” and want to take a shower when you come home – even though you showered before you went out. This feeling of “dirt” shows up as a foggy gray in the aura and needs to be “washed out”. A shower helps to clear the energy.
- If you are stressed, the aura is clinging close to your body, giving a feeling of pressure. Go out into nature and you feel how the “pressured” feeling lifts and you have lots of space. You might even feel yourself “soaring”. Usually this can be felt around the head.
- Next time you meet somebody new; what are your first impressions? Do you feel comfortable around them or not? How do you feel this? Some people make you feel as if they are embracing you – from across the room. Others will make you shy away in discomfort.
- When you come into a space that is supposed to be empty and it’s not; you always sense that somebody is there. How?
- When people come close to you, when do you start feeling invaded, at what distance? Does it differ with different people?
Look at these expressions we use in daily life:
- “He’s larger than life”. About a person who seems to fill a room, even if they are tiny.
- “Embrace the situation”. You can’t physically hug a situation…
- “I felt he saw through me” or “I can read you like an open book”. No, we don’t have x-ray vision.
- “You are invading my space”. From yards away.
All of these things, we know. We call it intuition or the sixth sense. Actually it is a very basic communication that existed way before other communication. I will leave you with a thought:
Science states that the Neanderthal-people had undeveloped speech-organs and research is done to discern what kind of sounds they were able to make. (http://www.handtomouth.ucl.ac.uk/project4/) It is understood that they had a very developed sign-language. They were mostly meat-eaters and would hunt such large animals as the mammoth. To do this, a large group would have to work together over an area so large that they probably couldn’t see each-other. Add to that the fact that any loud sounds would scare off the intended prey…how did they communicate? Just an interesting thought…
