Course Description

In our everyday interactions, we often find ourselves sensing the energies of places and people. Whether it's the instant warmth you feel upon meeting a kindred spirit or the instinctive unease when something just doesn't feel right, these perceptions are influenced by an invisible yet palpable force: the aura. An aura is an ethereal energy field surrounding every living being, a luminous manifestation of our essence.

While certain individuals possess an innate ability to discern these energy fields, the fascinating truth is that with the right guidance and persistence, anyone can develop the skill to perceive and interpret auras. Recognizing and understanding the nuances of these energy fields offers profound insights into personalities, emotions, health, and even deeper spiritual aspects of individuals.

Course Motivation

What is the Aura?
Welcome to our course on learning how to view and interpret auras. You are in good company, as this is an area that many people are becoming interested in. You are also ahead of the curve because many do not even know what an aura is or have even heard of the expression. But whether or not they understand what they are or know how to view them--the fact remains--everyone has an aura that others can see, and as you will learn, they tell a great deal about the person, especially about the state of their mental, emotional and physical well-being.

In this course you will learn about the basics of the aura, and when we have mastered that, we will go into more advanced concepts. You'll learn about what an aura is, how to see one, how to experience your energy field, learn what the colors of the aura mean, and the many important ways that you can strengthen and protect your aura. In addition, you'll learn about aura improvement, aura healing powers, and the future of aura study.

So sit back, relax, and learn a little bit more about yourself, and the world around you. By the time you finish this course, you will have a life skill and a tool to use to your advantage to help gain an understanding about yourself and others, as well as how to make improvements in the aura you are showing to others.
What is an aura?
As you go through your day-to-day life, you probably never give thought to how your body breathes, moves, and basically stays alive. Sure, you know that if your heart stops beating then your life force will cease to exist. The heart is fueling the rest of the body with the much-needed blood supply, but what exactly is keeping your heart beating? That life force that keeps your heart beating and your body going is energy. Every living thing, whether plant or animal, keeps living because of energy. That energy is found in what is referred to as your subtle body, which is made up of layers of sheathing and surrounds your physical body. It's in this sheathing area that the aura is found. Every living creature has an energy field, or aura.

For most people, seeing the aura is not something they can easily do without applying themselves. Most people also have to practice viewing them quite a bit before they are able to master the task. With patience and practice, most people do end up developing the ability to view them. There are some people that are clairvoyant or psychic that have the ability to outright see the aura with little or not practice, but most people have to work hard at it. They need to study all about auras, understand what they are, where the energy comes from, and how the aura can actually impact their life and how they can impact and change their aura.

Auras have been connected with such things as clairvoyance, which is the ability to obtain information about something through means other than the traditional human senses. The study falls under the classification of parapsychology, which studies psychic abilities and life after death.
Factoid. Clairvoyance is a French word that comes from the 17th century. It means "clear visibility" and is considered a form of extra-sensory perception, where someone uses their senses to gain information about events, locations, people, or other things.

History of the Aura
 Maybe you just heard of the term aura or energy field only recently. Yet the study of auras has been around for quite some time. Many believe that the term aura is attributed to Sanskrit and means "spoke of a wheel." The comparison is that the aura radiates from the body of living things, just the same as spokes of a wheel will radiate from the hub. People living in the Far East, such as in India and China, have been studying auras for many years. The ancient people discovered that there was an invisible and precious substance that radiates from the body and gives life, as it is the energy force.

As a side note, some people see auras because of medical conditions, such as having migraine headaches or epilepsy.

Prana, which is the Sanskrit word for "breath," is what they referred to as this precious life force. Prana is a part of Ayurveda, which is an ancient form of health care and philosophy that was practiced by many in the Far East. Even today, Ayurvedic medicine is very popular as a health system and used by millions of people in Nepal, Sri Lanka, and India. Ayurveda means life or life principle. In the West, especially in the United States, Ayurvedic medicine has been rising steadily in popularity.

It's important to note that the study of auras does not come without skeptics. There are people that have been very outspoken against it, and even denouncing the validity of it. However, this should not be seen as a problem because just about every field of study that exists has skeptics and those that seek to discredit it. Whether you are studying modern day medicine, ancient Chinese alternative therapies, or any other of a number of topics, you will likely find those that are skeptical. This is not a course to convince skeptics.

The important thing is to keep an open mind as you learn about the topic and see for yourself if you can apply that information and study to your own life. In this way, you become the judge and jury, rather than simply letting others lead you to believe something.

Why study the aura? 

Being new to the study of the aura, you may not realize just how important it is and what type of impact it can actually have. The aura is a very powerful energy force that can have an impact on your overall health, happiness, attitude, and more. It can have an impact on your personal and professional relationships, and let others around you know about your mood and emotions. You've probably heard before that most of the language that we humans experience is through body language, rather than spoke language. In a sense, the aura is an extension of body language. It's an unspoken signal to the universe of what is going on in your life, your health, your emotions, and so much more. The cleaner your aura, the better your life and relationships will be with those around you. The more you know and understand about yourself and others around you, the better able you will be to balance the world around you.
