Keeping Our Aura Strong Using Crystals
By Jennifer VanderWal
Our auras are energy fields surrounding us that help protect us from being overwhelmed. They help us deal with all kinds of change. Because our auras help us deal with change, it is important to keep our auras clear so that we can flow and deal with all change occurring in our life. Our auras make changes and adjustments in our auric fields and chakras, helping us prepare for the change. If we feel heavy or overwhelmed, our auras are full and need to be cleared so that they can make the healthy adjustments we need emotionally, mentally, energetically, and physically.
Our auras are constantly picking up and absorbing others’ thoughts and feelings, along with other lower vibrational energies that need to be cleared out. When our auras are healthy, not full of lower vibrational energies, it is easier to maintain our physical health. When our auras are strong, we are more protected, able to deal easily with change and not picking up on others’ thoughts and feelings as much. It is imperative to our health and well-being for us to keep our auras healthy and strong.
In the type of healing work that I do, I work with seven auras that are connected with our seven chakras. In two of these seven auras, we have etheric templates which are energetic maps that our physical body reads from. To create a more effective healing, the blueprint can be changed in these etheric maps so that the physical body is reading from a healthy map and the body is following along. For example, if my client has weak kidneys, I’ll go into the etheric maps and clear the kidneys and visualize them in a whole, healthy functioning state again. This way, the physical body is reading from the new healthy map and healing the kidneys.
We also have mental and emotional auras. These are where we hold our thoughts, emotions and concerns for others. The aura closest to the skin is the etheric template; this is one of the maps for the physical body. After the etheric template is our emotional body aura and then the mental body. When people see colors in the aura, it is actually the thoughts and feelings ridding on the mental body grid. In one sense, we are like those fish at the deep parts of the oceans that flash colors to each other. Our feelings and thoughts are a vibration so they show up in our auras as colors.
It is helpful to keep our auras clear so that we don’t feel bogged down, heavy or overwhelmed. Smudging with white sage has actually been scientifically proven to transmute positive ions to negative. We should be smudging every day, especially when we come home from work or have been around a lot of people.
There is another way we can use crystals to help maintain auric strength and health. Quartz crystals emit a white light energy, so they are excellent for clearing and strengthening the aura. Holding quartz crystals for 15 minutes puts our mind in a beta stare, which is normally obtained through long meditation. You will need two quartz crystals. Place one crystal in your left hand pointing inward, or up toward the head. Our left hand is usually our receiving hand and energy flows into us in our left hand. In the right hand, place the crystal pointing downward toward the feet. Our right hand gives energy.
Hold the crystals for 15 minutes while quietly focusing on your breath. You will feel all the lower vibrational energy being cleared and your aura filling with radiant white light. You will also feel calmer, more peace of mind, protected, balanced and energized. This is a great meditation to do in the sun because the sun is so great for clearing and charging our auras as well, with focused intention. Because quartz crystal amplifies all energies, it will amplify the clearing and recharging of the sun.
Our auras connect us with everyone, they are the web of life. Everything has an aura and we are all connected within our auras and energetic bodies. We truly are one with everything. Have fun!
