Aura is the layer of energy which interconnects all other subtle bodies and also acts like a shield covering and protecting our more refined subtle bodies like the mental, emotional, and spiritual and astral bodies. Like for our physical body to survive and maintain its health, oxygen plays a vital role for our existence similarly the Pranic forces which are commonly called Prana is the subtle energy that is required by our more refined bodies to function and maintain a good health. So if we want our bodies to absorb oxygen properly from the environment we should keep our lungs healthy thereby keeping our physical body healthy, similarly if we want our subtle bodies to function properly and to absorb the pranic energies properly we need to keep our aura healthy. Like for our physical bodies we do regular exercises to keep it healthy and working, we should also practice some form of energy exercise which regulates the proper flow of pranic energies in our subtle bodies.

Scientific research done on the Aura (Human BioEnergy Field)
Today with the development of Hi-tech electronic gadgets and instruments which are able to detect the fine subtle vibrations in our surroundings, it has become possible for us to actually capture a glimpse of the human aura. The research on capturing this subtle energy field through electronic instruments was started by Semyon Kirlian, who accidently discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a source of high voltage, small corona discharges (created by the strong electric field at the edges of the object) create an image on the photographic plate. And soon after his research the development of Kirlian camera was done, through which scientists were able to photograph the electromagnetic field around our fingers. It was found, that objects which are not alive, do not change parameters of their "aura" more than 2%. LIVING objects however can change their aura field dramatically and quickly. This provides scientists with unique tools to study physics of LIFE and consciousness using bio-electrography. For example, Prof Bunzen in Russia found that the response in Kirlian Aura seems to precede (appear as soon or earlier than) electric processes in the brain during a decision making process. From his research, presented in 2001 at the International Congress "Science Information, Spirit" in St Petersburg, it seems that a thought "appears" in the aura before any electrical activity can be detected in the brain. Is our consciousness electro-photonic to begin with?
All living objects show continuous changes in their aura. A major series of experiments of a team of scientists coordinated by Prof Korotkov in St Petersburg, Russia, demonstrated that aura of the human body continues to change continuously for almost exactly 72 hours after clinical death. It seems, that among other things, not only the time, but also the reason for death can be determined on the basis of these changes. It is interesting to note that in nearly every culture on Earth for centuries people observe a 3 day period between death of the body and burial. Christ was resurrected exactly on the 3rd day after his death. It seems that our wise ancestors knew MUCH MORE about life and death that we can even imagine today.
It also appears that auras of people who interact with various objects such as drugs, crystals, minerals, colours etc. may change significantly. Modern Kirlian equipment are capable to quantify these effects in terms of their influence on the electro-photonic glow. It seems that detailed functioning of every organ and health effects can be also determined from the recorder stimulated electro-photonic glow.
Slowly and gradually as more research was done in this field of Aura photography different technologies were developed claiming to capture the human aura or the electromagnetic field. Now till date we have different systems like PIP (Poly contrast Interference Photography), DAS (Digital Aura Scanning system), RFI ( Resonant Field imaging) etc which claim to capture the human aura and also help us in detecting the subtle imbalances in our bodies.
The Mind and its different levels
For most people mind is a part of the brain and logically they say that is resides in the brain itself but in reality mind is not a physical part of our body, rather it’s a ball of energy or consciousness which is responsible for existence. Mind is actually a big ball of energy which surrounds all around us extending upto 12 meters in diameter, with its centre near our belly button. This is one of the reason as when we feel excited we feel butterflies in our stomach region and also when we feel sad we often feel some kind of restriction near this area. This mind is the energy of which aura is a part. Although in some theories, its said that mind & aura are one thing but as per my experience I think aura is a part of mind. Mind is that super intelligent energy which is carrying out the necessary biological functions like breathing, supplying blood to various parts of the body, carrying the impure blood away from heart and taking impure blood towards the kidneys for purification. Now this mind is also divided into two main categories :
Ø Conscious mind
Ø Subconscious mind
If we take the mind on the whole to be of 100%, then the conscious mind occupies 12% of the total space in mind. This conscious mind is also referred to as the Logical mind or the Analytical mind because the main purpose of this mind is to apply logical reasoning and analyze each and every situation we encounter in our life. Its usually active when we are carrying out our day to day activities which require us to be in full waking state. Whenever we encounter something in our lives this part of mind quickly analyzes the situation and through logical analysis depending on our past experiences, memories & belief patterns triggers an associated emotional response and then either accepts or rejects the situation. This mind has limited power but most of our life we usually work through this level and so most of the time we feel stuck, as if unable to move on and sometimes absolute helpless.
Now this is the majority of our mind i.e., 88% of our mind. This part of the mind is like a huge and infinite reservoir of possibilities that holds within most powerful forces in the universe. It this region of mind where all our memories , past experiences, and belief patterns are stored in a very sophisticated manner much like a filing system used to store records in any organization so that later they can be retrieved easily and quickly without any trouble. A part of this mind also contains all the memory records of our previous lifetimes. This part of the mind is always recording 24X7, without fail.
Subconscious mind usually become active when practically our physical body relaxes like sleep or in a state of deep relaxation (physical, mental, emotional). This part of mind takes care of our normal biological functions like breathing etc which are always carried out even without our conscious awareness and the system through which is all done is called Autonomous nervous system.
Mind and its hidden potential
The universe is like a vast sea of energy waves & the human mind can be compared to a cosmic transceiver (transmitter & receiver) of energies. We are continuously interacting with our environment on a conscious or subconscious level on a energy basis. Within our mind we hold some special abilities which are known as ESP i.e., Extra sensory powers through like Clairvoyance, Telepathy, Remote viewing, clairaudience etc. As each of senses have a limited spectrum through which they can exchange information so if we know how to use these ESP we can gain access to hidden knowledge which is beyond the range of five senses. Some of the powers/abilities are:
Clairvoyance (clear vision) - Seeing far away scenes and places or hidden things, without using the physical eyes. Clairvoyance enables one to perceive scenes and mental images with the mind's eye.
Clairaudience (clear hearing) - Perceiving sounds or words from a distant or from other realms. Clairaudience enables one to hear words and sounds not perceived by the physical ears.
Clairempathy (clear emotion) - Sensing the attitude or emotions of another person.
Psychometry - Perceiving information about a person, place or an object, by holding in one's hands an object belonging to the person or place. In Psychometry one usually holds some small personal object such as a watch, ring, key or other personal object.
Psychokinesis - The ability to move objects through the powers of the mind.
Intuition - Perceiving an idea, knowledge or information directly. This is what is commonly called "a gut feeling". Intuition is some kind of inner knowledge and certainty about something.
Telepathy - Reading other people thoughts and sending them your thoughts.
Mental influence - An advanced kind of telepathy that allows one to influence the minds of other people.
Psychic healing - The ability to cure pains or illnesses by transferring some kind of healing energy.
Auric sight - The ability to see or sense the colours of the aura, and thereby understand certain things about the moods, emotions, thoughts or health of other people.
Balanced Chakras is Happiness & Health
When Universal Love and energy flows through the chakras. It is important that you try to maintain the correct energy flow through each chakra since you could also negatively be effected by a chakra being too open. Remember that balance in each, and balance in all in comparison to one another is what you seek. When the chakras are aligned on the kundalini and balanced the energy flows freely from the root chakra to the crown chakra allowing us a grounded connection to a higher spiritual communication. Think of each chakra as a water valve and your goal is to have each on the same amount so the energy flows through the kundalini, uninhibited and constantly.
The Different levels of Aura in the Human energy system
As described above we have different layers in our aura which all constitute to what we know as “Our Subtle bodies”, namely they are called physical body, emotional body, mental body, spiritual body and the last is our Astral body. So all in all our aura is made up of 5 basic layers out of which the physical body we are able to see with our naked eyes because it vibrates at a relatively lower and denser vibrational rate and the rest of the four bodies vibrate at a higher frequency. To sense the rest of the four bodies we can make use of the sensitive electronic equipments like Kirlian cameras or subtle vibrational tools like pendulum dowsing etc or perhaps just train our body and mind to sense, feel, scan & also SEE them. Ancient people knew the fact that our mind is more powerful than anything else in the universe, and so Now Lets look at each of these bodies and all the information they contain which makes up our aura:
PHYSICAL BODY: As we all know, this body contains all the physical organs and nerve systems, cells, molecules, atoms and so on which are like the building blocks for our physical existence. These organs carry out the necessary function of our bodies like purifying the blood and supplying it to the various parts of the body, respiration, digestion etc. For the survival and proper functioning of this body we need good supply of oxygen as well. Due to the electrical activity of this level, usually the First layer of our aura is formed and it appears as a thin milky vibrational energy emanating from our body.
EMOTIONAL BODY: In this second layer of the aura which is known as the emotional body we store up our emotional responses namely of love, hatred, jealousy, envy, forgiveness, loneliness, sad etc. Whenever we encounter something in our physical reality i.e., the physical layer, the conscious mind quickly analyzes the situation on the second layer of the aura based on our memories, beliefs, and experiences and triggers a response corresponding to the situation which is accessed from our emotional layer. For example: A person shouts at you, now in your past if you had a memory of your dad shouting at you and you being the cry baby, sobbing and complaining about it rather than to change or clarify the situation. As soon as you encounter this situation your conscious mind quickly accesses the memories stored in your mental body and triggers a emotional response to that situation that is either crying & complaining or Clarifying the situation.
Although every memory and the associated emotion over time is shifted from the conscious memory to the subconscious memory, it’s the conscious mind which is analyzing the situation and triggering the emotional responses in our everyday reality.
MENTAL BODY: In this third layer of the aura which is called the mental body we store all our past experiences, memories, and belief patterns. The conscious mind usually operates on this level, continuously analyzing the situations as per our belief systems, memories, past experiences etc and then finally accepting or rejecting the situation.
Its does not changes very frequently and the different memories, experiences and beliefs are stored in form of small crystalline energy forms which can be observed psychically and we can also access them to reveal the hidden personality traits of a individual. The mental body stores everything with triggers to quickly activate the emotions (positive or negative) connected to that pattern which we are experiencing.
SPIRITUAL BODY: This is called the Fourth layer of our aura which is like a giant storehouse of information of our past, present , future deeds*. This is the layer in aura which stores all our karma, Sanchita & Vanshik. Sanchit karmas are those which you have already committed in your previous lifetimes and you are now reaping the outcomes of them. Vanshik karmas are those which you are committing in this lifetime and you will reap the outcome in this lifetime or the next depending on the lessons & aim of your life. What ever has been done cannot be undone, so we have to bear the outcomes of our Sanchita karmas but if we all can be aware of our karmas we can minimize our negative karmas that we do everyday as we live our lives. In Bhagvada Gita, its said that “Even a negative thought about someone is taken as a karma” although the degree of that karma is less than the actual action. So even if we think positive and bless others we are in a way generating more of positive karmas. And as the saying goes “Whatever you are feeling inside, you will attract outside”. By accessing this layer we can learn about the life lessons of the individual and also the degree of his positive & negative karmas.
ASTRAL BODY: This is the Fifth layer of our aura which is also known as the etheric body or sometimes the etheric double or the etheric template because its often seen as the exact blueprint of our physical body. Like we have a heart, two lungs, two kidneys in our physical body we have exactly the same number of organs in out astral body but in a subtle energy form. Since all energy work is based on top to bottom approach i.e., energy follows from a higher end to a lower end.
Even if the physical organ is removed from the physical body, its energy imprint is always there in the astral body. Most of the healing which is intended to be sent on the physical body is first received on this layer, the healing is done on the intended parts of this astral body and then the new energy imprint or the information is transferred down to each of the lower body till it reaches the physical body. For example in the case when we practice Psychic surgery, we are actually carrying out that surgery on the astral body of the person. Once the blocks are removed then the new energy information of health is conveyed down through each subsequent bodies till it reaches the physical body. And also once the root of the disease is removed from the blueprint of our physical body, the symptoms appearing in the physical body starts disappearing. There have been some miraculous cases of psychic surgery done by some spiritual masters where even the parts of the body which were dead or not present, have been revived and in some cases the physical body starts regenerating them after the correction has been made on the subtle body. A well trained psychic surgeon can literally heal chronic problems of pain, aches and much more.
So in this way energy healing sent by prayers, reiki, intention etc. is always first received on the outermost layer of the aura i.e., Astral body and then transferred to the other bodies. The most important purpose of our aura is to act like a vessel to hold all our bodies together and also to act like a shield protecting us from unhealthy vibrations. So the stronger our aura is the more protected & powerful we are.
Even the practioners of Black arts project their evil intentions and thought forms on the astral body now once its received on the astral bodies, it all depends on the strength & purity of aura. Because as soon as its received on the astral body, the negative energies starts weakening our aura but if our aura is powerful and positive enough we can remain shielded and protected from all harmful energies. That is why its advised to protect yourself via a psychic energy shield while practicing energy work because you never know when you might get contaminated through this negative energy force.
What are Chakras?
The word 'chakra' is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel'; but perhaps even a better translation would be spinning wheel. Chakra is actually a term which defines a number of lines meeting on a common specific point. So in our bodies we have a number of nerves crossing at various parts our body forming major and minor energy meridians which carry the energy to different parts of out body.
If you could see chakras you would be able to see each primary chakra as a spinning vortex or wheel of energy; spinning inward from the front of your body towards the center point of that chakra on the kundalini and then spinning outward from that same point from your back.
We have seven major chakras which act like the 7 gateways for pranic energies to enter our aura so that the energy may be supplied to our subtle bodies and we also have a number of minor chakras in our bodies. The chakras we are talking about are physical and metaphysical both. In the physical body, these chakras are a result of the intersection of various nerves or nadi’s and in the metaphysical terms these chakras are a result of the intersection of our nadi’s in our subtle bodies.
As discussed earlier everything that exists in this universe is just vibration so that means each chakra in our physical body & the subtle body will also have a specific vibration. So each of our chakras have a particular frequency on which they should vibrate to be in balance & harmony with all other chakras facilitating perfect health at all levels. Therefore each chakra has a particular sound, colour, fragrance, crystal which vibrate to a frequency matching to the chakra itself. So whenever a chakra is out of balance, we can tune in the chakra to the right frequency by using these tools. Each chakra needs to be properly balanced, energized, and spinning properly.
Unbalanced and Blocked Chakras is Illness
When your chakras are not vibrating or spinning properly you are unable to move your physical, emotional, and mental body onto a higher spiritual level. When we are born we can have a perfect balance or have an imbalance from the past lives we bring with our spirit. Although the human body is just a vessel and a machine it is seldom broke from manufacturer reasons and natural biological causes. Each chakra effects different parts of the body and almost all illness are caused by poor chakra health. Illness is usually for us, or those around us, to learn higher lessons. You are given intuition and hints all the time about what you should be doing and how you should be living but we often ignore the words from Spirit and our higher selves. We are too often stuck in the reality and physicality of life to listen to our inner selves. Eventually, the chakras become out of balance and since you are stuck in the reality - the chakra manifests the energy imbalance into the physical; the health of your physical body.
When you have chakra blocks you slow down the Chi, the life force, and the spiritual connection. You may feel depressed, out of touch, like you lost something, tired, unable to clearly think, or listless. You may get angry for no reason, be afraid, be unsure of yourself, lack self-confidence, be unhappy without a direct understood reason, and have a general negative outlook on life. All of these are indications that you have a problem to resolve that is chakra based.
As already discussed that we all exists on 3 different levels of consciousness, so each chakra hold a physical level of reality for us, a mental & emotional level and a spiritual level of reality. On the Physical level we can see that what qualities that chakra holds in our physical body, similarly in our mental & emotional body and then the spiritual qualities.
