The physical body has an ‘astral body’ like an energy field around it. It is the ‘Aura’ or the bioplasm. This bioplasm is present as long as there is life. After death, it separates from the physical body. The astral body or bioplasm is of great importance, as the origin of most diseases lies here. When external organisms cause an infection in our body, they first come in contact with our astral bodies, and then, the symptoms of infection are felt.

Seeing Your Aura:
When the astral body is full of positive energy, it easily wards off outer influence. At least 85% of people can see their own aura. This can be done by standing in front of a mirror. There can ideally be a white background behind you. Now focus upon a point 6 inches above and 1 foot behind your head. You must fix your gaze upon this point. At the same time you can also see the outlines of your head and shoulders in the corner of your eyes. After 30 seconds to 1 minute you will see a prominent coloured light parallel to your body. As your gaze moves away from your body, this coloured light will become lighter and lighter. This is you aura or energy field. With practice, you will see this more easily and clearly. It has been proved with the help of the ‘oscilloscope’, that anything or anyone coming within 20 feet of the human aura can cause disturbance in the brain waves of that person.

So you feel disturbed by some people coming near you, either negative or positive. People with similar energy fields, feel very comfortable with each other and may think alike. So we say that their ‘wavelengths’ match.

We can cleanse the aura by spiritual means. This may be by chanting mantras, thinking positive. Even bathing with saline water, made from raw natural salt, cleanses and brightens the aura. So bathing in non polluted sea water is rejuvenating to many. Praying to the Sun, also gives us positive life energy.

Crystal healing is a useful method of cleaning a person’s aura. This has to be done carefully and correctly; based upon the study of Chakras and their required colours. Otherwise, this may result in disturbing the aura rather than balancing it.
