As the weather gets colder it becomes more important to protect your mind, body and spirit from the taxing effects of the elements. Society pays a remarkable amount of attention to your physical appearance, but your energy body needs to be refreshed and re-energized too. Your vitality and well-being depend on it! Here are just a few simple ways to eliminate negative energies and stay psychically healthy.
Use Essential Oils and Healing Plants - The practice of using plants to heal is as old as medicine itself. Plant energies are compassionate, and some of this energy is good for our bodies and spirits. Native Americans used the sacred smoke from sage plants to cleanse their auric fields of unwanted energies. The fragrance and oils of plants such as lavender, pine, and eucalyptus can also help lift your mood and drive away unpleasant feelings.
Crystals and Stones - Crystals are effective in cleansing, strengthening and repairing the aura. Black tourmaline can draw off and transmute negative energies, and other popular stones for this purpose are onyx, hematite, double-terminated quartz and aragonite. Many primitive people carries amulets for a protective effect.
Use Divine White Light - Surround yourself in The Divine White Light each morning before you start your hectic day. Visualize a Brilliant beautiful beam of White Light shining down into the top of your head and moving throughout your body, until you see the White Light shooting out of your fingers and toes. Once the White Light is in your body picture all of the negative energies leaving your body and being dissolved in the White Light. Then visualize this White Light surrounding your entire body and forming a shield of protection around you. Repeat this action before you go to bed. Spiritual attacks often occur when we are sleeping because we are most vulnerable.
Spiritual Connections - During meditation you feel closer to your body with each breath. Both concentrated prayer and meditation - if practiced mindfully and in balance - can help your aura stay clean and clear.
Yogic Practice - Focused breathing, balancing and twisting in yoga postures can help you cleanse your auric field and gain more energy yourself. Thanks to technology, there are numerous ways for you to access yoga classes even if they are not held locally. Direct TV in your area may offer yoga channels, and there are also numerous mobile apps that provide daily yoga inspiration and guidance.
Rejuvenating Water - An easy fix for an unhealthy, over-extended aura is to soak in a relaxing bath. Water sustains us and rebalances our energies. We spend the first nine months of our lives submerged in water, and returning to water allows our bodies to rest and recharge. Try giving yourself a sea salt scrub before a bath or shower, it also refreshes the aura and draws out toxins.
Cleanse Your Social Circle - No one wants to be around people that are constantly negative. That pessimistic, depressive energy is contagious. Friends who drink, smoke, and encourage you to participate are negative influences (this you may know already) that will weaken your aura. They can also be called “spiritual vampires.”
Clothing and Color - A healthy aura takes into account the colors you surround yourself with. Auras react to color much as light does - dark attracts energies, while lighter shades reflect them and insulate your own. If you interact with a large group of people on a daily basis, choose lighter shades that will repel negative forces, rather than draw them in.
Sound Medicine - The sounds from Tibetan chanting and singing bowls are known to dissolve negativity and promote clean energies. Alternately, chanting “Om” is an efficient way to center yourself and shift stagnant energies away from both your aura and physical being.
The aura itself has little power - it derives from your internal conditions, reflecting your current psychological, emotional and spiritual state. A weak, clouded aura indicates an unhealthy mind/body connection and negative thoughts. Give yourself the gift of a beautiful, glowing aura and you will find unexpected strength even in difficult times.
