Yogis believe that there is a radiating energy field around our bodies that has a deep link to physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Whether or not you believe in auras there is no question that a certain energy surrounding people can make a person beautiful, charismatic, and in some cases irresistible.
Breath Easy and Visualize
Find a quiet space where you can sit comfortably for at least 10 minutes. Take deep breaths in – through the nose and out through the mouth. While you continue to breathe, visualize bright white light surrounding you. If you know about the chakras you can imagine the light moving up and down the length of your spine through the chakral center. If your mind wanders, bring it back to the brightness and intensity of the white light as you continue to breathe.
Clear Negative Energy
Have you ever had the experience of spending time with someone and feeling completely drained? I call the experience the old “mojo zap”. Chances are that the person has negative energy or is transferring some of their unhappiness onto you – it might be in such a subtle way that you don’t even realize what is happening. People who believe in auras say that others can toss negative energy onto you that gets caught in the aura. Either way, the best way to clear the air of negativity is by seeking out and surrounding yourself with people who are positive. I’m sure you can name these people already. They make you feel energized and can even leave you feeling good hours after you’ve left their company. Want to learn to attract more positive people? Start by monitoring your own thoughts and comments when you’re spending time around others.
Clear Negative Thoughts
Yogis believe in the power of thoughts and that negative thoughts can be harmful since they create negative energy. I know from personal experience that negative thoughts can impact the quality of your every-day life, how you interact with others, and even cause wrinkles from furrowed brows and frown lines. If you are the pessimist, try piping in your favorite tunes or try a mantra.
Be Kind and Shine
Want to spiff up your aura? Take five minutes today to do a small kindness for someone, it doesn’t take much to brighten someone’s day, a sincere compliment, a phone call to an old college friend, or leaving a home-baked treat outside a neighbor’s door. Good people who are happy have a natural glow about them that is unmistakable.
Sooth and Sleep
According to the experts, a clean aura is a sign of good health. Getting regular exercise and sleep can affect aura, and boost your confidence in the process. Americans are one of the most sleep-deprived in the world, and many of my friends with children, busy careers, and active social lives have trouble sleeping even though their schedule allows for a solid seven to eight hours a night. Aroma therapy works great for me and taking a warm bath is also a way to clean your aura! Try adding fresh lavender to your warm bath or drops of essential oil. A warm bath can sooth you and you’ll be snoozing early.
