In the corporeal and the conceptual existence, every entity; whether a mineral, plant-animal, or a human, is believed to emanate the energy of varying frequency. This surrounding energy sphere is called the Auric Field or Abha-Kshetra. When a beam of white light passes through a prism, it gets split into seven colors of different wavelengths, resulting in an entire spectrum. This happens due to the refraction of light through the prism. In simple terms, we too are like those objects reflecting and refracting the divine light, resulting in a spectral combination of myriad colors in differing wavelengths that resonate around us, enveloping our very existence.
These emanating auric waves may be strong or weak in nature, and accordingly, get influenced by or influence other auric waves in their circumambience. These auric waves, not only of humans but those of plants, animals, and stones have various healing or deteriorating effects on the other bodies, e.g. the aura of a willow tree is capable of curing a person of his headache and relieving him from his stress and tension. Stones with particular auras in sync with that of the wearer are chosen, to guide him through his topsy-turvy rides, and to propel him toward the direction of his ultimate goal. The aura of humans has been recorded to do wonders on the surrounding objects. One such classic example was that of Rishi kshuan. His mere touch would turn the waters rainbowy! Aura thus is a tell-all tale of an individual. Colors always express the hidden and are a play of light at work on the lattice of the universal layout. Even a minor deviation from the natural will lead to the leaching out of vibrant hues from this celestial mosaic work of the divine.
These auras are of different shapes and sizes. They are chiefly of three shapes; rounded, square, and pointed oval. These auric shells have various striations and divisions comprising of physical, mental, emotional, magnetic, color, and spiritual dimensions. Various light pinpoints of colors depicting the attitude, attributes, and motives of the person make up for the color unit all around the body, whereas the spiritual unit; two inches above the head and comprising a total of seven bands, depicts the advancement of the soul toward that of the 'divine comprehension'.
Peacock blue in color, and slightly above the heart, the magnetic striation represents the innate talents and latent creative powers of the person. More creative the soul, brighter will be the colors emitted from this section. The mental striation revolving around the head involves more of the 'thought body', an essential section as it involves the mental chakra which leads one on the road to enlightenment. Hence, purgation of this section becomes one of the primary works in aura cleansing. Mastering one's emotion is among the toughest of human endeavors. Concentrating around the solar plexus, the emotional band will radiate colors as per one’s mood and emotion.
E.g., an angry mood will lead to the oozing of intense reds whereas the balanced emotion will emanate pinks, greens, blues, and oranges in varying degrees. The physical striations in the form of lines arising from both the hemispheres of the body toward the auric shell reveal the general condition of the body and the health of the organs. These energy lines could range from silvery white to dirty metal gray depending upon the overall health of the individual concerned.
