Auras, Energy and Intuition
There is a great deal of confusion in the metaphysical world about auras, energy and intuition. Quantum physics teaches that everything is energy and physicists say that only five to ten percent of the entire universe is actually physical matter with the rest being energy that vibrates at differing frequencies.
It is these energy frequencies that result in the different densities of objects from the thickest steel to the air we breathe. Everything from your house to a plant is made of energy. Your physical body is composed of energy but your energetic body extends beyond the physical body. And this is called your aura.
The aura is an energetically and magnetically based field that is an extension of our chakras. It can indicate our physical, mental and spiritual states.
Many people are taught to extend their auras as far as possible. This is the opposite of what should be done. Your aura should be kept as close to your skin as possible in order to protect yourself from other people’s aura fields which you may come in contact with throughout the day. You don’t want to pick up other people’s emotional, mental and spiritual fields.
It can and will be emotionally and physically draining Some people will actually drain your energy because they've depleted their own. If you’re sensitive to your aura or your overall energy, the next time you’re going to be in a crowded situation, pull your aura close to your skin. You will most likely feel much better at the end of the day.
Practice keeping your aura close to your skin. Find the edge of your energy field of your lower arm to use as a reference point. Now imagine your energy field is the air around you and just breathe it in, so you have the same amount of energy but it's just in a smaller area, closer to your skin. When you first start trying this technique it may seem like your having to struggle. If you’re struggling then you’re trying too hard. Relax, breathe and if your intention is for your aura to come down to your skin, it will.
Many people believe that their intuition is connected to their aura and that they will be more intuitive if their aura is extended. Not true. Intuition and aura are separate and once you realize that, you can begin to work on building your intuition. Some people call it the sixth sense. Most people start off noticing their intuition after something has happened (bad or good). Once you realize it’s happening and take note of it, you can begin to use your intuition more productively. The biggest problem is getting out of your own way to allow your intuition to guide you in your everyday life.
