Hello everyone! Lately I've had a lot of interest in aura readings, and I thought here would be a good place to describe what an aura reading is and what to expect during one.
For starters, what is the aura anyway?? Is it the bio-electromagnetic field that is produced by living cells, tissues, and organisms, measurable by modern scientific methods? Is it the chi that flows through all living things, studied by Chinese medical doctors and qi quong practitioners? Does it originate from the chakra system- those energy centres depicted as brightly coloured mandalas from the crown of the head down to the base of the spine? Maybe all of the above?
I believe the best way to describe the aura is as your energetic body. I like to think of it as your unique energetic fingerprint, comprised of your thoughts, intentions, emotions, memories, karma, and life force. And as such, the aura can reflect the state of your health (physical, psychological, emotional), past life "memories", patterns of manifestations (meaning what you are subconsciously creating in your life), and even connections that you have with other beings, whether physical or in some more subtle energetic way.
In the right light, and in the right state of mind, I will occasionally perceive part of a person's aura as bright glints of light, a light coloured fog, or as small areas of coloured light over an area of the body (most often around the head and shoulders). But during an aura reading, or "aura sweep" as I like to call it, I use my hands to perceive your aura by holding them 5 to 6 inches above your physical body. There is no direct contact between my hands and your body, and of course, you may remain fully clothed and comfortably seated, although I may occasionally ask you to stand up.
As I proceed to sweep my hands around your body, I will receive information in the form of images. Usually this information relates to health, but sometimes random information about your past or future, or about family and loved ones may arise. Occasionally, I will sense the presence of one or more people in the room.
Sometimes, when I am working on someone, I will sense a gap in the energetic field. This usually feels like a hole, or an area where the energy is cold, stagnant, or "sticky". The energy should feel warm, vibrant, and fluid! So when this happens, I try to encourage the energy to begin to move freely again. The process is always gentle, but I encourage people to give me feedback! Most people say they sense a warmth, "tingliness", or slight pressure. Some people claim this energy work has helped them with pain control and with symptom relief of minor conditions such as sleeplessness or anxiety. Many people experience a form of emotional release, and it is not uncommon to spontaneously cry or laugh during a session!
The most important thing to remember about having an aura reading with me is that the experience is personal, highly individualized, and unique for everyone. I welcome all questions and requests regarding your reading. Your boundaries will be respected and I will strive to make the experience as comfortable and as enlightening for you as possible!
