Your Human Wifi ( aka The Aura)
If you have attended any of my free masterclasses or have been coached by me. You’ll know that I think of The Aura as our human wifi. This is how I get my head around it.
We are all energy and part of one field of energy and connected by one large map of energy called the Electron field made of Electromagnetic energy. An Electromagnetic Wave is energy, it is a vibration. Your thoughts and your feelings are the things that energetically shape your experience of life. Last week I spoke about the Universal Laws, and how you can use your thoughts and feelings to create your new reality.
The Aura is an energy field that surrounds all living things, comprised of magnetic energy this field is unique to each individual. Humans are complex and dynamic, constantly changing beings and as such the auric field of each person is also unique and changing. When we perceive an event through our senses this information is given meaning in our brain. This electrochemical process has an effect on the body, the brain sends electrical and chemical information through our body constantly regulating everything from how we feel emotionally, to how we feel physically. There is a nerve that runs directly from your heart up to your brain…
The Heart–Brain Connection
I don’t know about you, but I was taught in school that the heart is constantly responding to “instructions” sent by the brain in the form of neural signals.
It is not as commonly known that the heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. These heart signals have a significant effect on brain function – influencing emotional processing as well as higher cognitive faculties such as attention, perception, memory, and problem-solving. In other words, not only does the heart respond to the brain, but the brain continuously responds to the heart.
The Heart- Math Institute www.heartmath.com has over 25 years research on this stuff.
HeartMath research has demonstrated that different patterns of heart activity (which accompany different emotional states) have distinct effects on cognitive and emotional function.
So for example, during stress and negative emotions, when the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered, the corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive functions. This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason, and make effective decisions. (This helps explain why we may often act impulsively and unwisely when we’re under stress.) The heart’s input to the brain during stressful or negative emotions also has a profound effect on the brain’s emotional processes—actually serving to reinforce the emotional experience of stress.
In contrast, the more ordered and stable pattern of the heart’s input to the brain during positive emotional states has the opposite effect – it facilitates cognitive function and reinforces positive feelings and emotional stability. This means that learning to generate increased heart rhythm coherence, by sustaining positive emotions, not only benefits the entire body, but also profoundly affects how we perceive, think, feel, and perform.
I love the Energy Alignment Method because it gets your head and your heart in sync which is vitally important to your vibration you send out and your experience of life.
What does an Aura look like?
A great way to explain this, is imagine a space filled with light. You can see energy flowing and swirling through it in bright colours and this life energy moves around you as you sit directly in the center. This place is your Aura, your own personal universe. It constantly moves and changes as you move and change.
Some people see as many as nine layers, most seven layers. Aura’s can be different sizes , they are unique as you are. It can extend as little as a few centimeters to many feet away from the body. With each breath your Aura is in movement. The colours are changing and moving all the time. That said we do hold “signature colours.”
The colour we radiate is affected by our physical surroundings as well as by the people we come in contact with and the energy fields they radiate. You’ve probably heard people say you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Who are you spending your time with?
The Aura is comprised of individual and interrelated bodies of consciousness and layers of Etheric energy. The 4 subtle bodies of consciousness that defines our personality, our perception, our direction in life, and our soul’s expression are known as:
The Etheric Body
The Emotional Body
The Mental Body
The Spiritual Body
The Aura also has 7 distinct layers of energy that are intimately connected to what is known as the Chakra System which is located along the spine. Essentially, the difference between an auric layer and an auric body is this:-
“An auric body is a body of consciousness and awareness. An Auric Layer is the representation of the chakra interacting in the aura” Stephen Bishop.
The four subtle bodies of the aura are:
The Casual Body / Spiritual Body
The Spiritual Body is a body of consciousness associated with our true spiritual path and direction in life. It is our highest potential and reflects our ability to manifest our soul’s true potential on earth.
The essence of our soul’s reality is the expression “to be” and this ultimately is the reason for our existence. Also known as the Causal Body, the Spiritual Body has the highest vibration of the auric bodies. Depending on the development of our spiritual nature, this body can emanate up to three feet from the physical body. It appears as a whitish glow and contains our true spiritual essence.
The Mental Body
The Spiritual body is the blueprint to our spiritual potential. However, it requires the creation of patterns of energy for this potential to be expressed and experienced. These patterns of energy are stored in the mental body as thoughts – both conscious and sub-conscious.
The patterns stored within the mental body creates the character framework for the soul to project its’ personality. The “self” manifest and expresses concrete intellect through the mental body. The Mental Body appears as a golden yellow light radiating out and around the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. It expands and becomes brighter when its’ owner is concentrating on mental processes. Extending up to twelve inches from the body, the mental body filtrates thoughts down to the emotional body which reacts to the thoughts with an emotional association be it love, fear, happiness, anger, and so on. A balanced mental body will provide you with clarity and direction.
The Emotional Body is more fluid and of a higher vibration than the etheric body. The emotional body appears as coloured clouds in continual motion, reflecting the quality and intensity of the emotions. This is the part of us that likes to ‘jump out’ in times of trauma and shock, to produce a feeling of emotional numbness, which will allow us to slowly integrate the knowledge of the shock in our own way.
The Emotional body, is the seat of our emotions. It’s the bridge between the mind and the physical body. Our emotional energy governs our fears and hopes, loves and pains etc. It governs the extent and nature of one’s personality expression upon the physical plane. The Emotional Body is the projection of our longings, moods, feelings, appetites, and fears. The emotional “self” is the expression of our mental “self”. The emotional body is the expression of the mental body. Emotional blockages prevent the manifestation of clarity of thought and direction in the physical body. The energy of the emotional body impacts the Etheric body, which in turn impacts the physical body.
The Etheric Body
The Etheric Body appears as a bluish-grey colour or shadow, extending approximately one inch from the physical body. It is responsible for the transfer of life energy or vitality from the universal energy field to the physical body. The Etheric body is a body of Etheric or subtle matter which furnishes the basic blue print for the physical body. Every cell in the physical body has an etheric counterpart. The Etheric body also serves as a filtration system. Universal energy filters down through the Spiritual, Mental, Emotional and Etheric Body into the physical body. The Etheric Body is the interface between the physical body and the other subtle bodies of the Aura. When the flow of this energy is disrupted, the physical body is affected and if this imbalance is not corrected, illness and disease can manifest in the physical body. There is a synergistic relationship between each subtle body of the aura.
When I am working with a client one of the first things we will do is get them in flow with each layer of their aura.
The Seven Levels of the Aura
The Etheric Layer (First Layer)
The Etheric body (from “Ether” the state between energy and matter) is composed of tiny energy lines like a sparkling web of bluish white light beams. It has the same structure as the physical body including all the anatomical parts and all the organs. The web like structure of the Etheric layer is in constant motion. It extends from one quarter to two inches beyond the physical body. The colour of the Etheric layer varies from light blue to deep blue.
The Emotional Layer (Second Layer) The feeling layer. Its’ structure is more fluid that the Etheric and does not duplicate the physical body. Rather, it appears to be coloured clouds of fine substance in continual fluid motion, which expresses the full spectrum of our emotions. It extends one to three inches from the body.
The Mental Layer (Third layer) Composed of a finer substance than the emotional body…this body usually appears as a bright yellow light radiating about the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. It extends from 3 to 8 inches from the body. The mental body is also a structured body. It contains the structure of our ideas…Within this field can be seen thought forms.
The lower 3 astral layers are concerned with the manifestation of the physical. So when you here ” thoughts become things” you can think of these layers.
The Astral Layer (Fourth Layer) The Astral body is amorphous and is composed of clouds of colour. It extends about one half to one foot from the body. This body connects us with higher dimensions of reality. It is the doorway to the astral plane.
The Etheric Template BODY (fifth layer) The Etheric template contains all the forms that exist on the physical plane in a blueprint of template form. It is the blueprint of the perfect form for the Etheric layer to take. It extends about one and one half to two feet from the body. This is the level that sound creates matter. The Etheric template level of the aura creates an empty or negative space that creates the grid structure upon which the physical body grows.
The Celestial Body (Sixth Layer) The sixth level is called the celestial body. It extends about two to two and 3/4 feet from the body. It is the level through which we experience spiritual ecstasy. It is through the Celestial body that we learn unconditional love. The celestial body appears in beautiful shimmering light, composed mostly of pastel colours. This light has a gold-silver shine and opalescent quality.
The Etheric Template of Casual Body (seventh level) The etheric body extends from about two and one half to three and one half feet from the body and contains all the auric bodies associated with the present incarnation an individual is undergoing. The Etheric body is composed of tiny golden silver threads of light which hold the whole form of the aura together. It contains a golden grid structure of the physical body and all the chakras.
When I am working with a client using the Energy Alignment Method we are working on all levels of the aura, so when you hear me say” I’m ready to release this in all forms, on all levels ( aura) at all points in time.” Now you know what I’m talking about!
I remember the first time I saw an Aura, it blew my mind, and I got really excited for the visible validation.
Fancy giving it a go? This is what you need to do. When you are first doing this, it works best in soft or low light. You will need to be relaxed, so find somewhere you feel most relaxed, this could be your living room or your bedroom for example.
1. Turn off the lights. As you don’t want to work in pitch-black conditions and in most cases the street lights filtering through the curtains will provide enough light. If you live in the middle of the countryside and don’t have the benefit of street lights ( !) then leave the landing light on and close the bedroom door. The small amount of light seeping underneath the door frame should be enough to work with.
2. As you lie on your bed or sofa, hold your hands straight out in front of you. Look gently at them, don’t stare hard you need to gaze rather than look. The aura appears like a gentle heat haze.
3. Try fixing your attention on your hands while focusing your eyes on the bedroom wall. So you are looking through your hands. The hands will appear out of focus but this will help you get the hang of the way to look.
4. Now very slowly bring the finger tips of each hand towards each other until they are very close but not touching. The aura will appear as very fine lines between the finger tips. You can try the same again just using the index fingers of both hands. I first did this in my Pranic Healing workshop, and I haven’t looked back!
5. As you draw the hands apart you will see the streams of energy connecting each finger. Bringing the fingers really close together in this way seems to increase the auric flow. You will feel a magnetic pull as the attraction increases as the fingers come closer together.
Let me know how you get on!
PS. There is an energy story behind why I am using my full name here. I will share soon!
