When my son was a little boy we use to watch a lot of Star Trek. The captain, when protecting his ship, would tell the crew, “Shields Up!”. When it came time to teach my son about the Auric field I would tell him to put his shields up just like in the show. We would do this whenever we would be go into a place where there were a lot of people and unknown energies.
The Auric field is an energy field that surrounds all living things. A human’s energy field extends from and beyond the body. A strong aura will protect you from negative energy. The yogi’s tell us that, “All illness goes into the aura first.” When you have a strong, vibrant aura you can keep illness at bay.
Have you ever noticed when talking with someone and they get a little too close how you start to back away. They aren’t touching you but you feel as if they are invading your “space.” That “space” is your Auric field. The size of the Auric field is usually around 18 inches – 3 feet around the body. It can be larger or smaller depending on how you feel in any given moment. When you meditate your Auric field expands. If you’ve just been in an argument your Auric field can contract.
The aura is made up of multiple colors. Each color represents a different characteristic of your personality. A lot of yellow in an aura can tell us a person is more intellectual or has a lot of personal power. Green is the color of healing energy. It can mean you are being healed or that you are one who uses healing energy to help others. The colors are constantly changing with the thoughts that you think and the mood you are in.
When the aura is strong you feel healthy and energetic. When your aura is weak or porous you can feel tired and even depressed. One of the ways to strengthen your Auric field is to take a walk in nature; smell some flowers or go hug a tree. Nature is a natural Auric field cleanser and strengthener.
Just like a wound on the body the aura can be harmed as well. If we are constantly subjected to negative comments from self or others or you happen to engage in addictive behaviors the aura can become weak and can no longer do its job. There are many ways to heal and strengthen the Auric field. Yoga & meditation, walking in nature, taking a shower while visualizing colors of the rainbow streaming down and around your body are just a few ways. I encourage you to do your own research to find a way that works for you. There are many resources out on the web these days that can assist you on your journey.
I will be teaching a class on August 7th about the Auric Field. Contact me if you are interested in attending. You can find out more here.
