The aura means different things to different people. In parapsychology, it is a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object. In spiritual art, it is referred to as halo or aureola. The dictionary defines the aura in three ways. One: as invisible breadth, emanation or radiation. Two: as an intangible quality that seems to surround a person or thing, an atmosphere. Three: as sensation, as of a cold breeze or a bright light, that precedes the onset of certain disorders such as an epileptic seizure or migraine. The auric body be ‘read’ or decoded and can even be healed or ‘cleaned’ if dirty. It is this part of the definition of aura that irks skeptics.
Skeptics see the aura in a different way altogether. They claim that auras may be seen for reasons such as migraines, synesthesia, epilepsy, a disorder within the visual system, a disorder within the brain, or due to the influence of psychedelic drugs such as LSD. Eye fatigue can also produce an aura, sometimes referred to as eye burn. Given this background, this article will discuss aura as it relates to parapsychology and religious art. We will talk about the history of the aura, where the aura is located and what the aura is made of. After reading, you will know more about the aura than most people do.
What is the History of the Aura?
From the beginning of time, people always knew that Auras existed. Some people trace the history to that of Chakras. Christian saints are of course traditionally shown with a halo around the head; the ancient Egyptians did the same for their gods or important human beings as did the Hindus, Buddhists, Greeks and Romans. These beliefs continue right up to the present day. It was however difficult to measure it or prove its existence scientifically. In the early 20th Century, Scientists, Doctors and other people in related fields came together to develop a system that proves that Auras exist. One of the first successes in measuring the Aura can be credited to Nikola Tesla, a very famous and renowned inventor who worked with Thomas Edison to harness AC current in their work with electricity.
This led him to take the first Aura photograph in the 1890s. After Tesla, Soviet scientists; Semyon and Valentina Kirlian produced a method of photographing the Aura called Kirlian photography. As time went on, L Ron Hubbard, the famous author and founder of Scientology had an Aura measuring device built by custom order. Since this was too expensive of an aura reader, Johannes R. Fisslinger used applied knowledge from that device to later use computer technology mixed with tested and true methods of Aura measurement, to put a whole new slant on Aura imaging. Now that we’ve seen how it started and the history of measuring it, let’s see where the Aura is located.
Where is the Aura Located?
The aura is purported to surround human beings. It is generally recognized as having seven layers. It is like a heat haze, shaped like an egg; radiating all around a person shimmering with light and energy. They extend up to four feet from the physical body and all occupy the same space at the same time. It has also been discovered that each human aura extends out further than the previous aura. They are interconnected and reliant on the others for normal function. It extends above the head and below the feet into the ground. Various scientific experiments have been conducted to prove that these assumptions are actually true. Since we now know that they surround the human body, let’s see exactly what they are made of.
What is the Aura Made Of?
Experts, psychics and scientists have all agreed that Auras are made of a field of energy or light. The field of energy is generally divided into two. The cosmic vibratory energy that is omnipresent in the universe; structuring and sustaining all things and the specific energy that sustains each human body. They each perform functions that help to keep us going.
You have seen that Auras are very important to human existence. They have been known to exist thousands of years ago. By knowing where they are located and what they are made of, you can now go on to discover how to use this knowledge of the existence of an Aura to find out more about yourself.
