All living beings are surrounded by electromagnetic waves, a radiation of heat which in metaphysics is known as “the aura”, the energetic field which changes colour and size dependent on or inner state.
Einstein proved that matter and energy are interchangeable and so everything we have around us is a result of our thinking. Keeping our frequency high and pure deepens our spiritual consciousness, creates positive thoughts and ideas, attracts to us like-minded people and easily leads us to highly personalised opportunities.
Here are ways in which your aura will stretch and shine so you may be a beacon to the world:
1. Eat right
A diet of plant based food, organic and raw where possible along with plenty of pure water is the most natural sustenance for the body. Eating little and often with a protein food included in each small meal keeps blood sugar levels constantly stabilised rather than eating the three standard daily meals which may tire the digestive system.
Plants from the ground such as vegetables “ground us” and plants that grow high like fruit, give us a natural energetic “high”. Give thanks each time you eat and affirm that your body is perfectly nourished.
The replenishment of blood during aerobic exercise energises all the the entire aura. Power walking or running and yoga are the easiest forms since no specialised equipment is needed other than suitably cushioned footwear and a non slip mat.
It is practically impossible to feel cranky whilst bounding along in nature or mastering the warrior position. Whatever is your preferred choice, make it a daily non-negotiable appointment with yourself and always start with gentle warm up moves to avoid injury.
3. Use natural toiletries
Limit chemicals and in particular avoid fluoride in toothpaste which calcifies the pineal gland, the seat of spirituality in the brain. Use natural toiletries, for example, substitute coconut oil for highly preserved and perfumed body lotions and instead of bubble baths which may be high in the toxin SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate), throw in a handful of Epsom salts or Himalayan rock salt from health shops, which are excellent at cleansing and purifying the aura, especially after experiencing a stressful or tiring time.
You can boost your aura by sitting in stillness and visualising a brilliant golden light surrounding your entire body. Imagine a light so fluorescent it would be difficult to look at with the naked eye then extend this energy outwards to around 6 feet away from your physical body. Not only will this regular habit raise your energetic vibration, it will shield you from unwanted emotional attachment as sensitive people can often absorb low energy of others if not careful.
Prayer is the acknowledgement of God’s guiding presence in our lives and it requires having the faith and patience to know we will always be given loving assistance for our higher good, no matter how difficult circumstances may be at the time. Through prayer we learn to live from our heart space and allow our purpose to be aligned with spiritual growth and happiness.
It is not important how you pray or the words you use, whether in your mind, aloud or written in a journal because your heartfelt message will always be received and understood. You may like to begin with a simple “Dear God, may You soften my heart and strengthen my mind. Amen”.
Meditation is growing space for the soul and medicine for the mind. It is the perfect rest stop. USA scientists have proven that meditation slows down the ageing process, balances emotions, aids memory and concentration skills, increases our serotonin level (the happy hormone), reduces pain and stress and strengthens the immune system, deterring disease. On a spiritual level the results are enormous as we deepen our relationship with God and further our intuition in knowing what is right for us in all life areas.
Silence your phone, find a comfortable chair or floor space in a quiet area, sit upright and close your eyes. Take several deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth, which will jump start the body’s relaxation mode. Then just “be” for the next 5 to 20 minutes, depending on what time you can allocate on any given day. When your mind wanders, just bring your attention back to the pattern of your slow and measured breathing.
7. Practice Feng Shui
The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui is an exceptional way to personally flourish. Like plants we only bloom when we are happy in our environment. Our personal energy is boosted when we declutter where we live (and work!) and transform our space into a magical den. Begin in the bedroom, the place where we heal and recuperate during sleep. Dejunk under the bed, the cupboards and drawers and ensure all art work is uplifting yet conducive to relaxation.
Regularly clean rooms and open the windows daily to allow in fresh “chi”. Tibetan bells are a useful tool as ringing them immediately clears stale energy and creates sacred space. Light candles often, including oil burners with an essential oil such as lavender and place good all rounder crystals about the home such as amethyst, rose or clear quartz. To apply full Feng Shui principals to your home seek out a book detailing the compass method.
8. Assess who and what is occupying your time
If you are feeling consistently depleted then it is time to step away from those who do not have your best interests at heart. If you are not able to do this fully, draw up guilt free boundaries and keep to them. Do favours with grace or not at all and steer clear of drama. Ditch things that drain you such as meaningless TV shows and read spiritual books and listen to inspiration speakers. Spend time in nature to ground and replenish yourself from the demands of the material world.
9. Release the past
Unforgiveness causes our energy to stagnate. To release ill feelings, lie comfortably in a quiet space with your hands gently resting on your heart. Firstly, identify times where you have self-punished. Recognise that every negative word or deed stems from fear then visualise yourself being soothed and comforted in God’s embrace. Stay in this compassionate, healing space for as long as you feel is necessary. When you are ready, take time with each of those who have triggered your pain.
Recognise that any ill behaviour was never about you, rather it was born of the instigator’s own fears and insecurities. Visualise them being soothed and comforted in God’s embrace. Pray for further emotional self-healing to take place whilst you sleep that evening and give thanks.
10. Have Reiki Healing
Consider having Reiki treatments or being taught how to self heal by a Reiki Master. Reiki means “universal life force energy” and involves the channelling of spiritual energy to ease physical and emotional discomfort plus promote deep relaxation and wellbeing. It calms and enhances the aura through the encouragement of self love and acceptance. Reiki is a loving and transformative power which secures us a healthy life of contentment, trust and authenticity.
