The attraction we have to other people is often felt immediately upon meeting them. Think about the people you know or have met in your life who seem to naturally draw people to them with an unexplainable magnetism. These people give off a vibe that makes us feel, comfortable, happy, and energized in their presence. They exude an inviting sense of compassion and support. Open-hearted, authentic, kind, and loving people seem to have a harmonious air around them. In the workplace, those that enjoy their jobs give off happier vibes then those who don’t.

By contrast, we have all experienced meeting people for the first time who make our skin crawl, give us the creeps. What about the psychic vampires who, just by being in their presence, seem to suck our energy and drain us or make us feel ill? Some people instantly put us on guard, make us feel attacked or demeaned. We may find ourselves questioning their intentions, and feel uptight, guarded, and anxious around them. Have you ever had the sense that you needed to get away from someone but you didn’t know why you felt that way? Those who impact us this way are rarely conscious of what they are doing.

Whenever we come into contact with another person we exchange energy. The energy that other people emanate can profoundly influence our health and our state of mind.

The energy that surrounds each and every one of us is called our aura. The aura consists of seven layers, and reflects aspects of our being such as health, vitality, emotions, psychological patterns, and spiritual nature. Auras are specific to each person; they are our spiritual signatures. Our auras are not separate from us; they are reflections of who we are at any given time. The aura that surrounds each of our bodies, often referred to as ”The Human Energy Field,” is a collection of electro-magnetic radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared to ultraviolet light. It normally extends between three and eight feet out from our bodies, though it could be more or less. Our human energy field is more powerful than we can ever imagine.

The colors and intensity of our auras have very special meanings. Our auras reflect our attitudes, therefore they are constantly changing. The colors perceived by the eyes, or instruments that can see them, appear as a spectrum of light ranging from shades of red to shades of violet. They can also be brown, black, or white. It is the shade and intensity of the color that reflects a positive or negative condition. Brighter, lighter auras indicate levels of optimism, spirituality, and health. White is the perfect color, the Divine Light, perfect balance and harmony. Duller colors may indicate blockages, unresolved issues, illness, guardedness, fatigue, and negativity. Black auras can reveal a range of human conditions. A clear, jet black aura often appears in energy workers and can signify mystery, power, dignity, and potential. Dull black may denote an unkind or dishonest nature, but can also represent insecurity, depression, fear, grief, poor health, secrecy, or deception. This is what is manifested when there is a disconnection from, or disruption of the flow of our life source.

The aura is a reflection of the nature of our body and soul. Auras can be vibrant, expansive, and beautiful, or they can be close to the body, murky, and threatening.

Our aura is our personal bodyguard. It is important that we keep strengthening our auras in order to protect ourselves against energy zappers and illness. Our auras can be strengthened through meditation, healthy living, and sunlight. Chanting, and listening to comforting, relaxing music such as classical, religious/spiritual, or new age are healing tools. The use of positive affirmations that resonate with our spirit can be a very effective way to keep our auras strong and healthy. It is very important to eliminate negative thoughts and unnecessary stress from our lives. There are many other ways to accentuate the positive energy in our lives; smudging with sage, essential oils, flower essences, crystals, and bathing or swimming in salt water are a few more examples. We should always be mindful of or limit our exposure to negative people, places, and things.

All of us have the ability to tap into the energy force that will keep our lives in a positive light. Always remember to surround yourself with good vibrations!

Love Always,
