substance in the universe, both living and dead tissue, emits
energy and has therefore a radiation pattern. This radiation,
termed 'aura', thus forms distinctly different force fields in
the case of each item, in the same manner as a fingerprint. The
individual auras are in contact with a universal field of
spiritual energy from which they draw their power.
Artists and mystics have from ancient times
seen and portrayed this effect all over the world. Aura
therapists say that although we are usually not aware of it
consciously, auras, rather the effect of interacting auras,
determine our first responses to people and situations.
Developed and understood properly, it is a quicker and more
sensitive gauge than more rational faculties. The unease or
elation that one feels immediately on meeting another person is
thus caused by the auras being in harmony or without it.
The auras of plants, animals and minerals are
said to communicate and interact with one another as part of a
single living system. Each person's aura is thought to be made
up of the radiation from all the cells and chemicals within the
body and their interaction. The visible aura, which is much in
evidence in all religious texts, is said to be an oval extending
from a few centimeters to a meter around the body, sometimes
more at the head. The light being composed of seven coloured
rays, each associated with particular organs of the body and
conveying a distinct message. The variations in shape, colour
& strength a reflection of each individual's uniqueness.
Therapists believe that personality and
emotions too can be interpreted from auras. One with soft,
fringed edges for instance is likely to indicate a person too
susceptible to the influence of others. Firm but fluid
boundaries would indicate openness but not vulnerability. And a
hard, distinct outline belonging to one who is defensive and
insecure. Similarly, lots of red within the aura would indicate
anger while a predominance of blue would stand for idealism.
Treatment comes in the form of adding extra
colours to improve a dull or depleted aura or using
complimentary colours to offset to help balance one that is too
strong. The therapists only acting as conduits for transferring
the universal spiritual energy into the auras of patients, by
touching the latter's auras or by using visualisation to
transmit energy. However, active patient in the entire process
is extremely crucial which involves their becoming more
self-aware of their spiritual nature.
