The aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds our physical body and includes multiple layers that are interconnected. Some of the layers include the ethereal body, the emotional body and the mental body. The ethereal body, the closest to the physical body, usually is a reflection of our health status. The emotional body reflects the mood of the individual, as well as the emotional response towards other people and situations. The mental body reflects our thoughts. This is how all our thoughts, emotions and experiences are reflected in the aura.
The aura, as an energy field, is constantly changing according to our physical condition (illness), our thoughts and fears. Many illnesses start first with a weakness in our auric field, in particular, in the emotional body. People with a physical or mental illness or those who are emotionally upset have weak auras, while happy healthy people have strong bright auras. The aura also works as a magnet, attracting certain energies towards itself, and repels others equally. So if we take into account the universal Law of Attraction when we have a strong and healthy aura, we will attract more of that while at the same time repelling dense low-vibrational energies, and vice versa.
Some people are very sensitive to subtle energies from others, and can feel their pain, fear and negativity. These energies can be absorbed by our energetic field and create emotional, mental and physical illnesses. Treating the disease or the symptom will only alleviate the condition temporarily as we are not addressing the root of the cause.
There are several ways to keep a strong and healthy aura. A Reiki treatment can help tremendously clearing your aura.
Other alternatives include salt baths, sage smudge, sunshine and some crystals. Also, living a healthy style that includes outdoor exercise, a balanced diet, breathing exercises and hopefully a few minutes of daily meditation, do wonders to your auric field. Also, be vigilant as to how you react to people and situations. Keep in mind that “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem”.
The word Chakra derives from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “disk”. They are spinning wheels of light that absorb and transform the Universal Energy. They are located in different parts of our body, and each has a physical and a psychological function. It is very important that our chakras are balanced, as they provide the energy required for each body part they control. The chakra system is directly connected to the auric field. There are seven major chakras within the human body:
|First Chakra or Root Chakra (Muladhara): This chakra is located at the base of the spine and is associated with the testes, rectum, lower back, legs, and feet. When you have a balanced root chakra you feel healthy, grounded, safe and secure. You are able to relax and be still, and you feel comfortable in your own body. An imbalanced chakra makes you feel fearful, anxious or with a lack of ability to meet your basic needs. Physically, an imbalance may manifest as a problem with arthritis, eating disorders, constipation, and lower back or feet issues.|
|Second Chakra or Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana): This chakra is located just below the navel and is associated with the bladder, ovaries, prostate, kidneys, gall bladder, and the bowel. A balanced sacral chakra gives you emotional stability and allows you to set healthy boundaries. Also, it is easier for you to nurture yourself and others, adapt to change and experience a healthy sexuality. An imbalanced chakra makes you feel emotionally unstable, depressed or rigid. It is also associated with sexual dysfunction and addictions.|
|Third Chakra or Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura): This chakra is located in the centre of the diaphragm, where the ribs come together, and is associated with the pancreas, liver, stomach, adrenal glands, and spleen. When your solar plexus chakra is balanced you are self-confident, responsible, and playful. Your ego is balanced, and you have a sense of personal power. You feel in control. An imbalanced chakra will manifest as low self-esteem, indecisiveness, and lack of discipline. You can also be controlling, arrogant, and self-absorbed. Physical issues derived from an imbalanced chakra can be diabetes, heartburn, ulcers, and chronic fatigue.|
|Fourth Chakra or Heart Chakra (Anahata): This chakra is located at the centre of the chest and is associated with the thymus, heart and lungs. With a balanced state you are a compassionate, loving and grateful person. If you have an imbalanced chakra, you can be co-dependent, jealous, judgmental, intolerant to self and others, and unforgiving. Physically, an imbalance may manifest as a heart problem or asthma.|
|Fifth Chakra or Throat Chakra (Vishuddha): This chakra is located in the area of the throat and is associated with the thyroid and parathyroid glands, the neck and all areas around the mouth and ears. It is the source of verbal expression, so a balanced state means you are a good listener and a clear communicator with the ability to speak your higher truth. An imbalanced chakra can manifest as fear of speaking, shyness, and toxic words. Physically, an imbalance can manifest as throat problems, thyroid imbalances, tightness of the jaw and neck, and ear infections.|
|Sixth Chakra or Third Eye Chakra (Anja): This chakra is located between the eyebrows and is associated with the pituitary gland, the eyes, the brain, and the nervous system. When your sixth chakra is balanced, you are intuitive, insightful, and perceptive. If you have an imbalanced chakra, you may lack imagination, have hallucinations, have difficulty concentrating and get confused easily. Physically, you may present with sinus issues, blurred vision, and headaches.|
|Seventh Chakra or Crown Chakra (Sahasrara): This chakra is located at the crown of the head and is associated with the pineal gland and the brain cortex. This is the chakra of the spiritual connection with our Higher Selves. With a balanced state comes awareness, intelligence, an open mind, thoughtfulness, and a sense of spiritual connection. An imbalanced chakra can manifest as learning difficulties, rigid belief systems, and lack of spiritual awareness. Physically, an imbalance can manifest as migraines, headaches, brain tumors, and amnesia.|
When there is an imbalance of one or more chakras, the energy can’t flow through. This will have an effect on the body that is going to manifest according to the chakra involved. For instance, people that have issues with their body weight may have an imbalanced root chakra whereas people that have trouble expressing themselves may have an imbalanced throat chakra.
Physical illnesses can also be the result of imbalanced chakras. Initially many illnesses begin with continuous negative thoughts that become dense within the auric field. With time, these energy thought forms can become first an emotional or mental disorder, and then they will eventually manifest physically. This is the reason why it is so important to maintain a healthy auric field and a balanced chakra system.
Other than getting your chakras balanced by an energy healer, some of the best and more efficient ways to keep your chakras in harmony include:
