The subtle human energy field is called the Aura. This life force energy is a multidimensional manifestation of luminous universal energy which surrounds and permeates the physical body, giving it life and expression.
The Aura contains the entire blue print for our life. It is our consciousness – all our thoughts and feelings and awareness originate from within the aura. The Aura contains all of our life experiences from the moment we are born until the moment we die. It also contains all memory of past life information carried forward by karma.
The Aura is pulsating, multi-dimensional body of consciousness which reflects our true thoughts and feelings because it constantly responds to our internal reality. In fact, the state of the subtle bodies, auric layers and the chakras can fluctuate from day to day in response to the impact of our experiences and how we process them. By observing the state of the aura, the colours and structure, we can obtain vital information regarding one’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Colours reflect the general wellbeing of the aura. A healthy aura will glow with clear, luminous colours. Murky colours within the aura often indicate the presence of disease or illness. The location and extent of blocked, dysfunctional energy can reveal the stage and progression of an illness or disease. Colours also reflect one’s mental and emotional states. For example, someone with a predominantly yellow colour, or radiating a strong yellow in the mental body, has a tendency of living, experiencing and reflecting life through the intellect.
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 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”
THE FOR SUBTLE BODIES OF THE AURA ARE:
THE CAUSAL BODY/SPIRITUAL BODY
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 here 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. “Casual consciousness deals with the essence of a subject while the mental level studies the subject’s detail. The casual body deals with the essence of substance and the true causes behind the illusion of appearance… The causal plane is a world of realities…deals with essence and underlying nature of things in question. Healing at this level is more powerful than the mental body.”
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
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 an individual with clarity and direction.
THE EMOTIONAL /ASTRAL BODY
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, which is also known as the Astral 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 (Astral 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 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.
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 like colored 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.
THE ASTRAL LEVEL (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.
<4 class=”orange-text”>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 KETHERIC TEMPLATE OF CAUSAL BODY (seventh level). The Ketheric 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 Ketheric 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.
