Sheilds Up! The Auric Field & You

Auric-Field-e1401095390122When 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.

 

 

The Fear Bone

tail_bone_nj_3-672x372In talking with a client this morning during an intuitive reading I was sharing with her how I was feeling her fear all the way down in her fear bone.  What I had meant to say was tail bone. This Freudian slip got me thinking about all the “stuff” that gets trapped in the 1st chakra at the base of the spine.

I like to think of chakras as little computer hard drives that store information.  We can access this information in several ways.  We can meditate on the chakra and ask it to reveal any clues to the fear.  Another way is to observe the thoughts we are thinking.  Negativity, insecurity, thoughts of lack or experiencing lack of support are all signs that the first chakra has fear stored there.  Troubles with your low back, sacrum, legs or feet are physical manifestations of the fear bone being active.

What to do with this information?  There are several ways to diminish the fear stored in the body.  One way is through yoga.  Yoga is an ancient practice that opens up the body to release negative emotions that get trapped there over time.  Journaling is another way to process fear.  Talking about fears with a friend or therapist is another way.  Getting a massage or having a healing session with someone who can “see”  the fear and then help to shift it is another solution.  My all time favorite remedy is to breathe into the fear.  Did you know we can not hold fear in our body and breathe long and deep at the same time?  Give it a try.

Fear is neither good nor bad.  Fear is information.  We decide how we are going to use this information.  We can choose to put up blocks that protect us from experiencing life in all its gory, I mean glory.  Or, we can acknowledge fear and say thank you for sharing but I’m going to do this thing I’m afraid of anyhow.  I know it isn’t as simple as that.  These tools and techniques are a good place to start.
