The aura is a fascinating yet complex topic to cover as there are actually seven layers of the Aura. Your Aura is made up of an energy field consisting of subtle energy bodies or layers. These layers include emotional, mental, and spiritual components that form the energy field around each of us. It affects your moods, emotions and it encompasses your overall vibe felt by others. Your aura is impacted by the people you interact with and your environment. This is where your life force energy resides. By understanding how the layers work one can help improve your health and life.
The first layer is the Etheric. It is closest to the physical body and also exists within the physical body including muscles, tissues, etc. The condition of this layer reflects the overall health of your physical body.
Your Emotional Layer or Second Layer of your Aura is associated with your vibration of inner feelings and related to the Second (Sacral Plexus) Chakra, which relates to emotions.
Third is Mental Layer: it is connected to the third chakra, the solar plexus, this aura layer is all about our thought process. It sits about 5-7 inches away from the body.
Astral Layer: The fourth layer of the aura is connected to the heart chakra and acts as a bridge between the physical and spiritual. It is connected to love and human connection and can become stronger through loving, intimate relationships.
Etheric Template the fifth layer, not to be confused with the first layer, also called Etheric. This layer is connected to the throat chakra and considered the blueprint of the physical body because it exists on the physical plane. It is connected to your identity and can be healed or made stronger by expressing your truth.
Sixth or Celestial Layer: This layer is connected to the Third Eye chakra, it is the layer where the spiritual connection starts and reflects our subconscious mind.
The Ketheric Body is the most outer layer. It absorbs your external environment and impacts emotions and thoughts. It’s the last Layer, furthest away (around 3 ft) from the physical body. It has to do with your connection to the Universe and spirituality. The ketheric body is connected to our sense of knowing and holds the information of our soul. While there are multiple ways to address each layer and clear our auric fields, I want to share 5 easy ways to clear your auric field: 1. Palo santo is a wood that has been used for centuries by native shamans for spiritual purification and aura or energy cleansing. When the wood is burned it’s believed to clear negative energy. 2. Frankinscence is an essential oil with clearing properties in the same family as Palo Santo. 3. Selenite is a clear crystal with powerful healing properties, especially when it comes to clearing negative energy from your aura or home. 4. Salt baths can be used to remove negative energies from your aura. Epsom salts are recommended and for a typical size bath tub, use 2 cups. 5. Rain cleanses negative energy collected in the aura. As a Pacific Northwesterner this is an easy one this time of year. Go outside and talk a walk in the rain.
I will also be teaching additional ways this week in our class that include yoga poses, meditation and breathing exercises. Remember there are seven layers in total and each layer interrelates with the others beginning at the center of your being. Your aura impacts the way you think, feel, act, and live and a deep clearing for a healthy aura includes a multi-faceted approach. This is not a one and done practice, but one that you can integrate on a daily basis. I'm excited to dive in with you and explore more ways to maintain a healthy aura through Reiki Yoga practices!
