The aura is a field of energy that surrounds all living things. It is composed of many layers, starting closest to the body and extending about 4-5 feet out. Some of the energies within the aura can be measured with magnetometers giving it scientific verification. Other aspects of the aura are thought to be above the level that is currently measurable from scientific standards.
Of these layers, it includes an Etheric, Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual layer. The Etheric layer is the closest to the body and linked with the physical body. It’s connected to the 1st and 2nd chakra. The Emotional layer extends 1-2 feet from the body and can expand further out in various directions in response to excitement or emotional activity towards people, events, or even things we really like. Any kind of emotion/feeling, good or bad, are a part of this layer. It’s connected to the 3rd & 4th chakra. The Mental layer is about 3 feet or so out from the body. Its related to the 5th & 6th chakra. Its linked to our cognitive functions (thinking, communicating, planning, etc). At times, when emotions are highly connected to our thoughts, it can merge with the Emotional layer. The Spiritual layer is the highest layer, extending 5 feet or more outward. Its linked to the 6th and 7th chakra. It is connected to our spiritual experiences and aspirations as well as our life purpose. This part of the aura can grow stronger, protecting and guiding us, as we develop more spiritually. It can also have an affect on other aspects of the aura.
Many people feel that one’s state of health is very much connected to their aura. Your conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings are within these layers. Energy blockages or unhealthy energy can develop within the aura disrupting the flow of the auric field. Both Traditional and Transformative Reiki will help remove the blockages or unhealthy energy, bringing the auric field back into balance.
