What is an Aura ?
Everything in the Universe is a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. Hence, we may define the Aura as a electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external excitation (such as an ambient light for example). This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can train ourselves to see the Aura vibration.
The most important property of the Aura seems to be the fact that it contains INFORMATION about the object or person.
Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants …) changes with time, sometimes very quickly. Aura around non-living object (stones, crystals, water…) is essentially fixed, but can be changed by our conscious intent. Above facts have been observed by scientists in Russia, who have been using Kirlian effect to study Auras for the last 50 years.
The Aura around humans is partly composed from EM (electromagnetic) radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared (IR) to UV light. The low frequency microwave and infrared part of the spectrum (body heat) seems to be related to the low levels of the functioning of our body (DNA structure, metabolism, circulation etc.) whereas high frequency (UV part) is more related to our conscious activity such as thinking, creativity, intentions, sense of humor and emotions. Russian scientists, who seem to be about 3 decades ahead of everyone else in Aura research, make experiments suggesting that our DNA can be altered, by influencing its microwave Aura. The high frequency UV part is very important and most interesting but largely unexplored. And this part can be seen with naked eyes.
Seeing Auras is not New Age
What we think we “know” on Earth now is just a tiny drop in the Ocean of Knowledge.
In the distant past, people admired things they could not explain and called them “miracles”. Long ago, people were able to see Auras. Advanced spiritual people such as Buddha, Christ and their immediate students were painted with golden haloes around their heads, because some artists could actually see Auras.
Christians adopted the round halo from their contemporaries, using the circular shape to connote perfection, divinity, and holiness.
In Australia remote West Kimberleys you can find prehistoric cave paintings, many thousands of years old, depicting people with golden haloes.
Pope John VII, mosaic detail, 705-06 CE, in the Vatican Museum. The square halo was sometimes used to indicate that a person is still living when the work of art is created. From what I can tell, the earliest example of a square halo dates from about the early 8th century. The square, as an imperfect shape that represents the Earth, is used to draw a contrast with the perfect circle used for divine figures.
The Greek god Helios is depicted with rays emanating from his head.
The point is that people thousands of years ago, accepted the light coming from a body was a real thing, something visable – not just new age crap. So you need to pay attention to why feeling your aura is so important.
Things which can greatly amplify your aura are:
- Meditation (purifying your mind from any thoughts)
- Concentration exercise with the cross
- Matching your aura with the environment
