What is the Aura? Learn About The 7th Body in Kundalini Yoga Here
“Your aura is determined by what you vibrate. Whatever your mental thoughts are, that is your aura and that is the color of your aura.”
– Yogi Bhajan
Most of us have heard of the aura, but do you know what it is? As you begin your practice, you will hear more about the seventh body in Kundalini yoga and how it protects you. If you’re entirely new to this realm, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we will take a look at the electromagnetic field (aura) and explain why it’s important to your life.
What is the Aura in Kundalini Yoga?
“You are always known by your projected personality. Everyone wants his real personality to be hidden. But your aura always represents your real personality.”
– Yogi Bhajan
The seventh body in Kundalini Yoga is known as the auric body. Put simply, this is an electromagnetic field that surrounds you including the arc line, the radiant body, and the subtle body. Much of the time, this body is simply referred to as the ‘aura’.
Acting as a vessel for your life force, the aura shields you from negativity and instead attracts positivity. When it is strong, you will naturally cultivate feelings of security and confidence, which shine through your entire being. However, when the seventh body in Kundalini Yoga is weak, it can lead to uncertainty, insecurity, and even illness.
The aura is not a figurative body. Research into electrophotography has found that all matter has an electromagnetic field that surrounds them. Inanimate objects have electrons that are always present around them, but these rarely change. When it comes to the human aura, though, it’s important to note that it can transform and grow on a daily basis.
The strength of your personal electromagnetic field depends on your health, well-being, and what you project into the world. Since your aura is vital in protecting you and helping you to make positive decisions, you should focus on strengthening it and expanding it.
The seventh body in Kundalini Yoga is generally between three to six feet around you. As it grows, it becomes stronger and more protective. It may also surprise you to learn that we can always sense people’s electromagnetic field when we are around them, whether we foster our intuition or otherwise. However, when a person has a strong sense of intuition, they can naturally see the colors of a person’s aura without needing visualization.
Signs Your Electromagnetic Field is Weak
Should you fail to tend to your aura, you may find that it is weak. Signs of a weakened electromagnetic field include poor health, insecurity, difficulty making decisions, uncertainty, and fear. When you experience a combination of these symptoms, the chances are that your electromagnetic field is not strong enough to protect you. For that reason, you have no barrier between you and negative external factors.
Whenever you notice that your aura is weak, you should take the time to strengthen it. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways in which you can take care of the seventh body in Kundalini Yoga. As you do so, you will notice a tangible transformation in how you feel and react to the world around you. Through our daily practice, we can aid our auric body.
Signs Your Electromagnetic Field is Strong
“Those people who have a very strong magnetic field—electric charge, life force, circumvent force—can liberate others with touch and mental projection, and where their steps shall be, their truth shall be.”
– Yogi Bhajan
Conversely, the signs of a strong aura or electromagnetic field are undeniably positive. When you have a large auric body, you will be naturally uplifting to those around you. You may find that you are compassionate, charismatic, and charming to all whom you meet. Aside from that, having a strong aura means that your natural personality shines through when you see people. You don’t have to hide who you are or try to fake it.
What’s more, a strong aura leads to a sense of inner confidence, security, honesty, and love. As you extend your auric body, you will likely find that you feel healthier as you have protection from the external environment. Those with a large electromagnetic field are comfortable in themselves and attract those around them with ease and security.
How to Strengthen Your Aura
Now that you understand the innate value of strengthening your auric body, let’s talk about the steps you may take here. Needless to say, each action may have an effect on your electromagnetic field. However, there are some highly effective places to start.
1. Heal Your Chakras
Did you know that the aura is also the eighth chakra in Kundalini Yoga? With that in mind, taking the time to actively heal your chakras will help you to strengthen your aura. Consider ways that you can heal your chakras and include them in your daily routine. You may find that doing so enables you to naturally extend and strengthen the auric body.
2. Practice Kundalini Yoga Kriyas
As you’re practicing Kundalini Yoga on a daily basis, be certain to include kriyas that strengthen the aura. Luckily, there are specific sequences that will allow you to expand your auric body and focus solely on it. In short, the more attention you give to this aspect of your practice, the better the results you will ultimately reap afterward.
3. Dress in White Clothing
Believe it or not, what you wear can have a significant impact on your consciousness and aura. While how you dress is an intensely personal decision, you may want to consider wearing white on a regular basis. Naturally, dressing with grace, modesty, and dignity may help you to strengthen your projection and, in turn, expand your aura. To keep things as simple as can be, wearing white can extend your aura by 12 inches.
