 The Aura

 Every living thing has an aura or electromagnetic energy field ,through which life force, prana or chi circulates. The human aura has seven layers which are interrelated and connected to the seven major chakras. Energy is drawn in through the chakras which connect to and transmit energy through each auric layer.

It is through this subtle energy field that illness and diseases begin to make their way to the physical body where they manifest in various ways. It is believed that all physical illness begins first in the aura arising from blocked/ repressed feelings, negative thoughts, fears etc, and can exist there for many years before reaching the physical body.

The aura constantly reflects all our emotions, thoughts, and any changes and developments in our spiritual and physical well being.

The energy therapies, Reiki, Crystal Therapy and Colour Therapy all work on the Chakras and Auric field.
