In our modern culture, we are constantly bombarded on all sides by the lower influences and aspects of the astral light. Television, social media, advertising, stop-and-go traffic, industrial noise, pollution, radio emissions, and the like all disrupt the delicate balance of the human complex. And, as a man or lady engages in a development journey, certain technologies of shielding oneself from these influences become vitally important.
It has been said that the higher centers, namely the higher thinking and emotional centers, are already fully developed in man. They are the source of intuition, telepathy, clairvoyance, and the like, all natural aspects of the human experience.
The problem lies in that we have become disconnected from these higher centers because of the noise, turbulence, and contradiction we endure from inside and out. A particular type of inner stillness is required to reestablish these connections.
The human aura is an electromagnetic energy field that extends approximately 32 inches (81 cm) or more in every direction around the body. In humans, it has a definite boundary, whereas in plants and animals, it does not. The aura serves many functions, one of which is the protection of the higher faculties and systems from intruding influences and radiations. In this way, it is similar to the earth's atmosphere.
Like the earth's atmosphere, the human aura can become polluted and develop 'hot spots' and holes. Understand, of course, that the pollution in a man's aura is of an energetic nature.
There are a few practices that can help cleanse and maintain one's aura in fine health:
Cleaning the Aura
In our culture, we emphasize physical hygiene but pay little or no attention to our energetic hygiene. One of the simplest ways to clean the aura is by taking a shower. Flowing water can help break up the coarser electromagnetic 'static' in one's aura and disperse it. When showering, take some time to let the water flow through the various layers of your aura by stepping away from the stream and rotating slowly.
Plants and trees can also be of great benefit in cleaning one's aura. We have a deeply symbiotic relationship with the flora life of the planet. They consume the carbon dioxide we exhale and provide fresh oxygen, and they also consume the lower electromagnetic energies we excrete and provide more refined energies in return. It is advisable to have abundant plants around the house and make it a priority to spend time in nature whenever possible.
Certain types of incense can also be helpful. Frankincense is one of the most potent types for breaking up coarse electromagnetics. Additionally, certain sounds, such as that of clapping and of bells, can help with cleaning one's aura.
Repairing and Sealing Your Aura
As mentioned earlier, our aura is constantly bombarded from inside and out by turbulent radiations that can disrupt its natural protective function. In a previous post, we discussed the practice of not expressing negative emotions. In addition to the explanation, it should be known that intense emotional outbursts can blow holes in the outer edge of one's aura, making one more reactive to negative influences. Therefore, controlling one's expression of negative emotions becomes an essential discipline for a developing person.
Filling one's aura with specific colors can also greatly benefit in keeping-out coarser energies. Light blue (sky blue) is one of the most effective colors for this purpose. To do this, simply stand in an open area with your arms at your sides and imagine a light blue gas emitted from your fingertips. Combining your visualization with the physical movement of slowly raising your arms above your head, filling your aura with a light blue color will have the desired effect.
With practice, you will be able to not only fill your aura with any color you wish but also develop the ability to place protective symbols and thought forms in your aura to aid you.
Note: The color sky-blue is a criteria-enforcement color wherein nothing of a coarser frequency may pass. As a side effect of this practice, you may find that many people don't notice you when you're protected in such a manner. You will fail to register with them as though you were invisible. Of course, you're not physically invisible - it's simply the case of that which is lower will not register your frequency.
Caution: It is also possible to temporarily surround and imbue physical objects with electromagnetic force. Use caution when engaging in this practice. For example, it would be dangerous to surround your automobile so that it may cause others not to notice you.
Practicing Inner Stillness
In all things, the interplay of opposites engenders balance. When sitting in complete external stillness, one should always be active on the inside (i.e., active contemplation). When engaged in physical activity, one should be internally silent. This creates inner harmony and is one of the keys to the art of meditation. Take some time each day to sit in complete relaxation and observe your thoughts. Do not try to censor or control them - simply watch. With practice, your ability to observe internally allows you to make contact with your higher centers and the wisdom they hold.
The regular cleaning and maintaining of your aura will provide an enhanced personal atmosphere for rapid progress.
