An Exercise in Sensing Your Aura

Sensing subtle energies, feeling or even seeing your aura is not as difficult as you might think.  We are sharing a simple exercise in sensing your aura that you may want to practice from time to time to awaken your innate intuitive gifts.

Hold your hands up in prayer position, approximately six inches in front of you, with the tips of your fingers at eye level.  Focus on the warmth of your palms.  Keeping your hands in the same position, slowly ease your hands apart until you feel the coolness of the air between them.  Now move your hands back toward the prayer position until you feel a warmth or tingling sensation.  If necessary, close your eyes and focus on what you feel between your palms.  What you are feeling is your auric field.

Open your eyes, and hold your focus on the empty space between your palms.  Gaze just above your fingertips until your eyes focus on the view just above your hands.  Do you see any colors?  You may literally see colors . . . or you might "sense&quo…

An Introduction to Chakras

Many individuals in western society do not give consideration to the energy that flows through the human body.  Originally an Eastern concept, the presence of the human energy field dates back thousands of years.  Teachings in Hinduism, Taoism and Buddhism tells us that, not only do we have complex physical bodies, but we also have complex energetic bodies. Yogis have understood this concept for centuries.

The energy system is made up of seven major chakras and seven subtle or "energetic" bodies (commonly referred to as an "aura".)  The flow of energy through the body is exchanged through the chakras and the "health" of each chakra is reflected in the aura.

The flow of life-force energy through our bodies is commonly referred to as "chi", "ki", or "prana". A healthy flow of prana results in overall well-being, and an unhealthy flow of energy is thought to be the underlying cause of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual illness. An imbalance in a specific chakra first manifests itself energetically, and eventually leads to a physical manifestation.

The objective of our book, "Chakras and Chakra Balancing", is to give an overview of the human energy system including the chakras and the subtle bodies. You will find suggested affirmations, color therapy, aromatherapy and crystal therapy to assist you in maintaining a healthy and well-balanced flow of life-force energy. You will also discover how balance and imbalance within each chakra can manifest itself emotionally. We do not address physical manifestations, as the text is not intended to diagnose physical or mental illness, rather it is intended as a guide for spiritual growth and a way for you to understand how energy flow, or lack thereof, can affect you emotionally. the goal is to increase awareness and give you an understanding of your energy system to assist you along your spiritual path.

In the final portion of the book (the course portion), you will learn a simple method for clearing and balancing chakras, as well as a simple meditative technique to help you achieve balance.

We are sharing our book with you now, in preparation for the big plans we have coming for our blog community through Willow's Cabin. Watch for our announcement!
