Auras: General Info

Covens Council of Knowledge  ► Articles  ► Auras: General Info
A simple, informative post on the general information you need to know on auras.

What is a Aura?

The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human body and every other living organism in the universe.

These particles of energy are suspended around the healthy human body in an oval shaped field. This "auric egg" emits out from the body approximately 2-3 feet (1 meter on average) on all sides. It extends above the head and below the feet into the ground.

The aura consist of seven levels/layers/auric bodies. Each one of the subtle bodies that exist around the physical body, has its own unique frequency. They are interrelated, and affect one another and the person's feelings, emotions, thinking, behavior, and health as well. Therefore a state of imbalance in one of the bodies leads to a state of imbalance in the others.


Crystals and The Aura

Clearing blockages and healing the aura with crystals is a ancient practice. In this, the crystal's auric field merges with yours and transmits some of it's energy to you. Now is where the chakras come in. Your chakras create your aura.

When choosing a crystal, make sure it corresponds to the particular chakra you are having a problem with. For example, the Brow Chakra's colour is shades of purple; therefore amethyst would be a good choice. Everything has to correspond and be relevant.
