Auras, the Heart...and more
Let me start off by saying that I am not here to confirm or dispute the existence of auras. Speaking solely from my personal experience, I know what does and does not exist in my world. Have you ever been standing next to someone and could just "feel" their joy...or "feel" their anger, or perhaps you could sense the airiness or thickness in the air when you walk in a room?
What brings me a certain degree of joy is that ancient beliefs and modern scientific beliefs are coming, ever closer, to an understanding and agreement of what exists in this physical world of ours. We're actually beginning to accept that something can exist eventhough we cannot see it, feel it, touch it, taste it or smell it. We're ever-learning that there are senses beyond the five physical senses that we've been tought as children.
Teachers like Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbetter talk about the many planes of existence. In form, we have the physical plane. Next, at a finer vibration is the etheric plane where the etheric body is sometimes viewed as a wavering of energy (similar to heat rising from a hot pavement) that extends out from the physical body, sometimes no more than an inch or so. Next, the auric plane, or the astral plane, where the aura is visible. Visible, meaning able to be perceived by someone that had refined the ability to utilize that area of vision, spectrum of energy, etc. I hesitate saying that only someone with pyschic powers can see auras as that usually carries such a stereotyped meaning.
If you look up psychic in the dictionary, it is defined as "of or pertaining to the soul". Nothing fancy, nothing supernatural....just able to utilize the powers of the soul......powers that we all, at one time possessed.
In the metaphysical arena, the aura rerers to an energy field that eminates from the body. This is the vibrational energy that takes on movement and color in relation to the thoughts and emotions that the person being observed is feeling.
In metaphysics, Aura refers to the energy field emanating from the surface of a person or object. This emanation is visualized as an outline of cascading color and may be held to represent soul vibrations, chakric emergence, or a reflection of surrounding energy fields.
Modern New Age metaphysics identify the aura as electromagnetic fields. The existence of electromagnetic fields around every object in the known world is a scientifically proven fact. If you look at form and break it down, it's composed of molecules. These molecules are composed of atoms and the atom are composed of....guess what! ENERGY!!
Recently, I read and article about the Ultimate Power of the Heart by Howard Martin. He writes; The heart is an electrical organ producing by far the largest amount of electrical energy in our bodies...40-60 times as much power as the brain. This energy permeated every single cell in our bodies. The signal is so strong that it creates an electromagnetic field that surrounds our body in 360 degrees and can actually be measured up to three to four feet outside of the body. The field is not static but changes, depending on what we're feeling. "In a sense, through the electromagnetic field created by the heart we are literally broadcasting our emotions like radio waves."
Pretty amazing and almost too simple, eh? These energy fields are detectable and photographable using Kirlian photography. Being the natural skeptic that I was, I had the pleasure of meeting someone that did Kirlian photography. Determned to prove to myself what I just wasn't sure existed, I had her take a photo of me and then I went off somewhere quiet and meditated for no more than 15 minutes. The second photo is me, after meditating. We did this over and over, with other people. I left with a new knowledge...the knowledge that comes from experience. Not what I've read or heard but what I actually had the good fortune to experience.
We live in a vibrant, alive world. What we think and do eminates from us like a stone tossed in a still pond. It ripples out affecting all around it. Why not make it the most loving, pleasant, joyous ripple that we're capable of creating?
