It is not uncommon to see someone refer to the aura as an atmosphere or vibes surrounding a person. It may also be described as the energy that surrounds all living things. However, there is a lot more to the concept of the aura than the dictionary definition. Aura is a function of the biofield generated by the body, traveling outward from the body and interfering with other energy fields.
Let’s talk more about the biofield and the aura to learn about what they reveal and how they affect our everyday life.
What is the Aura and the Biofield?
In Modern physics, there are two types of forces; contact forces and field forces. Contact forces require contact between the two opposing bodies. Examples of contact forces are; reaction forces, tension, and friction. On the other hand, field forces are forces that act through a certain distance. It acts through space to the object under the influence of the force. Examples of field forces are; gravity and electromagnetism.
The human biofield is a typical example of the field forces.
Every living thing- whether plants or animals- have a biofield. The biofield and the aura are, in fact, electromagnetism field of energy produced by the operation of many working parts within the body system. The human body has been known to make a small quantity of electricity and magnetism intertwined to generate an electromagnetic field extending outward till infinity. The electrical and magnetic fields are complex and dynamic, generated during the working process of significant body parts, such as the brain, heart, blood and lymph flow, ionic movement across cell membranes, and many other biological processes.
The human biofield
According to the national institute of health (1994), “the biofield is a massless field, not necessarily electromagnetic, that surrounds and permeates living bodies and affects the body.”
The human biofield is a region in space under the influence of the energies produced by low-level light, heat, and acoustic energies. The human body produces energy that cannot be easily defined by physics and chemistry. This energy may be called subtle energy.
Aside from that, it also produces electrical and magnetic effects. In simpler terms, the human biofield is a term used to describe all forms of energy produced by the human body.
The human biofield can interfere with other energy fields; it can also be affected by external fields. These interferences may have a corresponding effect on your health.
Furthermore, your biofield can interact with other people’s biofield. For instance, some people can make you nervous; others may have relaxing effects on you. The question is, how do the aura affect the human body, what impact do they have on our everyday life, and what can your aura reveal.
The effects of the aura on the human body
The concept of ‘Aura’ and ‘The human biofield’ has been popularized in modern times. However, they have been utilized for a long time in energy medicine. Traditional holistic medicine recognizes energy healing as an efficient method of treating the body. It uses the flow of chi, qi, or prana generated through the energy points in the body.
The aura is a function of the energy that radiates through the energy points and outwards to the surrounding. It has been discovered that the free flow of this energy – chi, qi, or prana- is essential for a healthy lifestyle. Many holistic practitioners can manipulate this energy to perform treatments on diseases. It has been incredibly useful in providing general wellness. On the other hand, blockage or irregularities in the flow of energy through the body may cause health issues. Fortunately, energy healers can readily correct your body’s deficiencies by manipulating your qi or transferring qi to you.
What does our Aura reveal?
The aura contains information that can be harnessed to produce positive changes to the human body. It can also be used to modify our approach to our daily interactions. Here are some of the information you can get from the biofield;
The Aura shows the current state of our health. As a matter of fact, it changes to accurately express the current health condition. Experienced holistic healers are able to see and manipulate the aura to perform treatments.
By measuring various aspects of the biofield, we may recognize organ and tissue dysfunctions even before they occur. Thus, providing us with a head start to treat the ailments before they become severe.
Medical experts can also use the information derived by measuring the biofield to predict whether the effects of a particular course of treatment would be useful or ineffective. It all depends on how the treatment plan interferes with the biofield.
In recent times, the biofield has gained massive usage by traditional holistic medicine and western medicine to diagnose and perform treatments to significant body ailments. As a matter of fact, this is preferred by many due to its non-invasive methods of treatments.
While traditional holistic healers can perceive or even see the biofield, modern doctors have to employ sophisticated equipment to observe the biofield. For instance;
- The electrocardiogram (ECG) and the electroencephalogram (EEG) measures the electrical activities in the heart and the brain, respectively.
- Likewise, the magnetic measurements of the hearts and the brains are measured by magnetocardiography (MCG) and the magnetoencephalogram (MEG)
Other notable examples are the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) camera and the Electro-Meridian Assessment System (EMAS). The GDV camera (also called bio-well) was developed by Dr. Korotkov to perform scans on the human body. It is used to provide information about the state of your general wellness.
Also, special thermography techniques are employed to measure the emission of infrared radiation from the human body. Basically, thermography is used to locate hot spots of temperature imbalance that are evident in problem areas. It is incredibly useful in detecting acute and chronic inflammatory conditions.
Moods and Emotions
We may be able to read the emotions and even the present state of mind through the biofield. The biofield continually changes to reflect your moods, emotions, and feelings. Your energy can tell someone around you whether you are happy, angry, distraught, or excited, even without saying a word. If you observe closely, you may be able to sense the emotions of other people.
According to Emma Mildon, a renowned spiritual activist, reading the aura allows you to tap into a person’s frequency. Likewise, other people can sense our frequency. What attracts or repels people from us depends on whether our frequency works with theirs.
In many philosophies or text about the biofield and the Aura, it is said that the aura consists of several layers of different colors. The way the layers interact with each other shows your personality. It is also a perfect indication of how emotionally, spiritually, and physically complex you are. For example, some layers may be brighter if you have a vibrant or energetic personality. Alternatively, it may be dull if you feel stressed or physically ill.
Shamans and practitioners have the following meaning for the different color types. Here are some of them;
- Red means energetic or strong-willed
- Orange means thoughtful and adventurous
- Yellow represents creativity, relaxed and friendly
- Green indicates social, communicator and nurturing
It should be noted that the aura changes over time, so the color may vary.
The biofield contains detailed information about the lifestyle, health, emotions, and personality of a person. By using this information, traditional holistic healers can apply biofield therapies such as Therapeutic touch, Qigong, Reiki, and Reflexology.
Likewise, modern western medicine is now employing the biofield to diagnose and treat illness. Many specialized types of equipment are being invented to read and measure the aura. Notable examples are the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) camera and the Electro-Meridian Assessment System (EMAS)
We stand to enjoy a more grounded general wellness by understanding the biofield. Also, it informs us of the best approach to major life issues.
