Brighten Your Aura – Psychic Self Defence
Each of us is surrounded by energy and light. In some circles, this enveloping energy is called the aura, and it radiates our inner spiritual energy out to the world.
It surrounds our body and reflects our condition. People who are healthy and happy have strong, bright auras, and people who are ill or in distress have weak dark auras.
The aura can expand when energy increases or becomes stronger, and it can fade as a person’s inner power wanes.
The aura is a very personal expression of our unique personality, body, and character. And just as we can change our physical health and vitality, we can improve our aura. To do this, we must be prepared to invest time, effort, and perhaps a little money.
It is possible to feel or sense your own aura. Move your hands back and forth, closer to and away from your body. You may soon realise that there is a different energy level closer to your body. You may feel a little heat or resistance. Give it a try. You may be very surprised at the results. Sometimes, the people around us sense our aura.
Spiritual growth and the stronger energy and aura that come with it are important to protecting yourselves from negative energies and influences. Negative people who are consumed by worry or anger or who are seriously ill can actually drain our aura of its energy. People who dabble in the occult can do much more serious harm, so it’s important to maintain a strong healthy spirit and a vibrant glowing aura. This is what we call psychic self-defence.
In order to grow spiritually and increase your personal energy and aura, you must first clear your mind and body of negative thoughts and feelings that can weaken us and make us vulnerable to psychic attacks. This phase of spiritual healing involves introspection and careful self-examination of our spiritual strengths and weaknesses. Wherever we find anger, jealousy, resentment, or lust, we must find ways to reduce and eliminate them from our mind and heart. Then it’s important to replace these negative energies with positive ones.
Identify the causes for the negative thoughts and emotions. Now, take an honest look at them and determine whether they’re justified. In fact, no negative thought or feeling is justified for a person who hopes to grow spiritually. Replace those energies with positive ones. If you are angry at a person or event, look at the part you played in the situation and what you can do to resolve it.
If you are envious or jealous, allow others to follow their own hearts, even if it means separation. If you hold a resentment, learn forgiveness. And if you feel lust, learn respect and self-restraint.
Of course, this process will take time. You can’t change overnight, and to pretend you have will subvert your effort. Be persistent and patient. Don’t use this to beat yourself up or undermine your self-esteem. Recognise that all of us can improve, and do what you can to replace your negative energies with positive ones. You will continue this self-improvement process throughout your life. Once you’ve gotten a good start, go on to the next phases of your effort.
Because the aura reflects your overall condition, it is important that your body is strong and healthy, too. Poor diet, stress, exhaustion, and illness can deplete your spiritual energy and give you a weaker darker aura. Make some important lifestyle changes. Avoid foods and substances that interfere with healthy functioning. Limit or eliminate caffeine, tobacco, and drugs.
Adopt a healthy balanced diet that minimises fast foods and processed meals. Be sure that you have the proper balance of different types of foods, and increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables. Make a habit of daily moderate exercise. You don’t have to join a gym. Just take a brisk walk or climb the stairs. Do something to increase and maintain an increased heart rate for 20-30 minutes each day. See a health care professional when you need to, not days or weeks later.
Take care of your self-esteem. Never tell yourself you’re not a good person. Never engage in negative self-talk. It’s not true, and it’s very harmful. Taking care of yourself also involves social relationships and mental stimulation. Begin to re-establish and nurture old relationships. Get involved in your community. Participate. Take a course or attend a concert. Enrich your imagination, and share the adventure with those you love.
Remember, though, that negative people’s energies can harm you. Avoid people who are cynical or pessimistic. They may be the very ones you’re learning to protect yourself from. Spiritual development and psychic self defence involve being able to recognise those people, places, and events that drain your spiritual energy and weaken your aura. As much as possible, eliminate these negatives from your life and mind.
There are tools and techniques you’ll find very valuable in your spiritual development effort. They require a bit of education and a lot of practice, but they’re tremendously powerful. Some objects are good for eliminating the negative and nurturing the positive. One tool helps you identify, perhaps even see, your aura.
Take a crystal hanging from a string in your right hand and rotate it around your body. You will feel vibrations through the string as the pendulum swings. Another way to find your aura is to light a candle and slowly close your eyes. You may be able to see your aura in different colours that cling to your body. Practice these exercises, and you’ll be come more aware of your aura and the messages it gives you about your spiritual condition.
