This month begins a series of articles. We will explore what is sometimes called the Life Energy Field or aura. Some people speak of Universal Energy. The aura is a subset of Universal Energy and sometimes called the Human Energy Field.
Have you ever found yourself thinking “I get good vibes from that person” or “Wow, there was some bad energy in that meeting”? Ever sense that someone was present even before you looked up? All of these situations demonstrate what happens when your aura comes into contact with other people’s auras. It happens all the time and we are developing new sensitivities to it. Just as an electrocardiogram measures the electrical current of the heart, there is now technology which measures the electromagnetic field around the body — which is what the aura is. Just as electrical energy fluctuates, so, too, does the energy of an aura.
The aura is actually comprised of seven layers. It is an organized system of points, pulses, lines and spirals. The layers are not sequential, as a layer cake is, but rather interpenetrate one another. The vibrations of guitar strings combine and come together to form sound even though each produces a sound by distinct vibration. The auric fields work similarly. We know that strings vibrate at different rates depending on their thickness and the materials from which they are made.
The different fields of the auric layer also vibrate at different rates and have a different composition. The first, third, fifth and seventh layers are highly structured. The second, fourth and sixth layers are more fluid. The chakras also extend out through all the layers although each layer also has an association with a particular chakra. In some ways, each auric layer has a set of seven chakras because at each layer the chakra is operating at a different vibration. You may think about this like clouds in the sky. At different heights, the clouds have different characteristics. One cloud may extend through different heights and will have the characteristics of that height: vapors or water droplets or ice crystals. The texture might be fluid or hard. They might be thick or thin. Dense or fluffy.
Next week we will begin exploring each layer.
