The Human Energy Field / Aura
Every single human being is a ball of energy, not just the physical kind. Apart from having our own energy, we are giving out and receiving different energies all the time.
Whilst some energies are helpful, others aren't. In simple terms one person or place might make you feel happy whilst another might drain you physically, mentally and emotionally.
If you look at energy the way you look at fingerprints, everything you touch you leave your print on, so energy works in the same way, every person that you meet, every thought that you have and everyplace that you go, are all taking parts of your energy, whilst you are also drawing on the energy from others. That is why it is very important to be in balance and look after your own energy.
The human energy field or the aura as it is known is made of several different layers, whilst each layer is connected to the chakra system. (post coming soon).
I am just going to list the main areas of the aura that I would be working on during an energy session.
There are several layers to the aura, which in turn are connected to the chakra system (energy centers, 7 major ones and loads of small ones) which are connected to the meridians (energy flowing path within the body).
The first layer of the aura is the Physical Layer which is closest to your body, and relates to your physical body, muscles, tissues and bones. It is weak when immunity is low or for people who don't exercise much, or are less active and it is stronger in people who are very active.
The second layer is the Emotional Layer, which represents emotions and feelings. It can be very affected in times of emotional stress.
The third layer is the Mental Layer which represents thoughts, mental ability and the state of your mind. It will be stronger in people who engage in mental tasks or have an overactive mind, and radiates the strongest when creativity is in flow.
If something emotional happens us it will affect our emotional layer then this can lead into our emotional layer and our physical layer, thus affecting our chakras which are connected to these layers and affecting the meridians which are connected to the chakras.
Example ; losing someone you love will have an effect on your mind, body and soul.
Something on a physical layer can lead out into the emotional and mental layers. Something traumatic happening to your body, say for example breaking a bone after falling off a bike, can have an effect on you mentally (making you afraid to ride a bike again) then this can lead out into the emotional layer.
When something affects us (no matter how big or small it might seem), it can create a domino effect and end up affecting us on many different levels, leading to unbalance in the body, mind and soul.
Each Layer of the aura is a different colour, when we are balanced each layer is strong on its own, but when we are out of balance the layer that it is affecting may look sluggish, lighter or darker in colour, not as vibrant and may start seeping into the other layers.
