In the area of psychic and spiritual study, the aura is the energy field that surrounds the body and that reflects our physical and mental condition. The halos you see in traditional religious art represent the aura of the holy person. But most people cannot see the aura and refuse to believe that it exists. It can be helpful to know what the aura is and how it works. After all, understanding leads to acceptance.
Little scientific research has been done on the subject of the human aura. However, in 1911, Dr. Walter Kilner published a book in which he claimed that he could see the aura and use it to diagnose disease. Unfortunately, his accuracy was not good. In the mid-20th century, the Russian Semyon D. Kirlian developed a process for photographing the aura, and Kirlian photography became all the rage in the West. Skeptics argue that photography is a trick and have strong arguments to support their doubts. Also, digital charlatons are known for photographing doctors to create the appearance of an aura, making aura photography a profitable scam game.
Despite the misuse of the concept and the frauds that may have occurred, the concept of the aura is ancient and shared by sages and holy people throughout human history. Modern psychics believe they can see the aura, and scientists have a hard time proving that it doesn’t exist.
However, if you are on a spiritual journey, the aura can be a very real part of life. A weak aura can indicate illness or psychological stress and trauma. A strong aura reveals good balance and physical and emotional health.
How can I strengthen my aura?
All stars have auras and, as Carl Sagan pointed out, we are made of stellar material. The aura is the area of light or magnetism, sometimes called plasma, that surrounds us. Strengthening one’s aura involves improving health and, more importantly, improving spirit. We do not improve our aura, we improve the inner strength that produces it.
So if you want a stronger aura, you need to work within yourself. Each of us is a spirit being in human form. But as we are socialized and taught to live in the world of men, we lose touch with our spiritual nature. To strengthen the aura, a person must somehow find a way to rediscover and nurture their spiritual nature.
You need to educate yourself in spiritual matters, either through traditional organized religion or personal research. You must read and study one or all of the major sacred texts: the Christian Bible, the Islamic Quran, and the Hindu Bhagavad Gita. Then you should put the spiritual principles contained in these texts in your daily life. There is great truth in the old saying: “The truth will set you free.”
Don’t be fooled by New Age fashions and fanciful fantasies. While there may be some truth to approaches like astrology, palm reading, Tarot cards, divination, and other quasi-spiritual pursuits, they don’t get to the heart of the matter: the soul. In fact, they can be a dangerous deviation from true spiritual growth.
Focusing on the light within you is the only way to strengthen your aura. And there are many tools available to help you undertake this endeavor. Meditation is probably the best known and most powerful method, and it takes a lot of learning, practice, and patience to become an effective meditator for this purpose. A little research will reveal that there are many well-accepted meditation techniques. It can be helpful to start with some simple yoga, exercises that help you stretch, learn to discipline your breathing, and find your inner spiritual center.
A stronger aura is the happy result of hard spiritual work. Other by-products are better physical and emotional health, inner peace and quiet, and the joy of a clear awareness of the strong relationship between the stars and human beings. We are all made of Stars. That’s what the aura is all about. Stellar matter.
