The Human Energy Field or ‘Aura’
The aura is an energy field that surrounds living things. It is our life force. It can also been called the human energy field. Shaped like an egg or oval of light that surrounds the whole body, it can look like a heat haze shimmering with light and energy.
You may have seen the aura already, as a light around a person’s head or you may have felt the aura by sensing someone’s mood. You can think of it as an atmosphere around the human body- just as the planet earth has an atmosphere.
The aura is generally recognised as having seven layers. Most psychics only see the first three- those closest to the physical body. The outer auric layers are concerned with the soul and spirit whereas the inner auric layers relate to mind, emotions and physical health.
‘Chakra’ is a Sanskrit (Ancient Indian language) word which means vortex or wheel. Chakras are energy centers in the energy field which regulate the flow of energy (or “ki” in Japanese and “chi” in Chinese) throughout our body. Chakras are aspects of our consciousness & contain the emotional patterns of this life & past lives.
Chakras were a part of daily life for the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Hindus, Greeks, Romans & aboriginals of many lands. As these ancient civilizations were conquered, vast libraries of knowledge were destroyed & only a few remnants of their information on the chakra system have survived.
There are seven main chakras aligned along the spinal column. Chakras exist on an energetic level similar to our aura. They are more dense (solid) than the aura but not as dense as the physical body. The chakra system is connected to the body via the endocrine and nervous system, with each major chakra associated with one of the seven endocrine glands and a group of nerves known as a plexus.
How well each chakra functions depends on a person’s emotional state of being. Every emotional response or reaction to a situation is recorded by the chakras. Chakras reflect the way we view and experience the world around us. They store emotional responses & thoughts that can limit or expand the soul’s experience of life.
Limiting thoughts & emotions can create tension or stress in the chakra, and this tension can then transmit into the nerve plexus and gland associated with that chakra. Repeated tension can eventually result in physical symptoms in the area governed by the chakra.
By making a connection between the symptom & the associated chakra, we can gain insight into the thought or emotional energy that created the symptom. When the individual responds and acts on the message the symptom is sending, release of the symptom occurs.
