Because we live in the modern world with all its attendant stresses and business, the aura is not a feature which we generally notice. However, this energy field has texture, colour and temperature, and with the discovery or Kirlian photography, we are now provided with a visual record of the aura.
Healing mediums use the colours in a person's aura to direct them to the site of physical problems. It often happens that disease is indicated by the etheric aura long before it becomes evident in the physical and it is in this etheric body that the real remedial action begins. If the indications can be seen in the aura, then it is possible to treat them on that level.
There are some people who draw in vital energy in such abundance that their auras are charged and they radiate this energy.
When these people enter a room other peoples vital forces are so stimulated, that it may be heard said their mere presence gives strength to those around them. I am sure that everybody has heard of people being termed green fingered - these are people who transmit auric energy to plant life - that these people do not consciously realise their possession of this power does not matter in the least. Not only can energies be transmitted to human beings, animals and plants, they can also be poured into and charge inanimate objects such as stones, jewels, oils, etc. These objects will then act as a kind of magnetic battery, pouring their charge of energy out as required.
How to sense the aura
Focus your gaze on another person - breathe deeply and slowly, and remain relaxed. After some minutes, you will gradually begin to perceive an ovoid shape extending out from the body - you may note different hues within the aura and some may readily note holes and clouds. It will take several practice sessions to achieve, but it is certainly worth the effort. Of course, if you wish to view your own aura without all the attendant effort, you can arrange to have a Kirlian photograph taken.
