The auric field is a quantum leap deeper into our personality than is our physical body. It is at this level of our being that our psychological processes take place.
Energy events within the auric field are primary to and always precede a physical event. They precipitate it. That means than any illness will show in the field before it shows in the physical body and can therefore be healed in the field before it is precipitated into the physical body.
Yet the auric field is not the source of the event. It is the vehicle through which the creative consciousness from the core reaches the physical.
The human energy field is composed of seven levels. Each level penetrates through the body and extends outward from the skin. Each successive layer is of a “higher frequency” or a “higher octave”.
Each extends out from the skin several inches farther than the one within it of lower frequency. The odd-numbered levels (the first, third, fifth and seventh) are structured fields of standing, scintillating light beams. The even numbered fields (second, fourth and sixth) are filled with formless substance or energy.
It is the unstructured levels of the energy field that have been related to plasma and called bioplasma. This bioplasma flows along the lines of the structured levels and correlates directly with our emotions.
If you look closely at a house plant, you will see a green haze flowing into the aura of the plant. Inanimate objects also have an aura. Most person objects become imbued with the energy of the owner and radiate this energy.
Gems and crystals show interesting auras with many layered and complicated patterns that can be used in healing. For example, the amethyst has a golden aura, with golden rays streaking out from its naturally faceted points.
Most people can see a haze around the fingers and hands when trying to sense our own aura. It looks somewhat like the heat wave over a radiator.
It is sometimes seen in various colours, such as a blue tint.
The energy bodies pull like taffy between the fingers as the haze from each fingertip connects to the haze at the fingertip of the opposite hand.
When you move the fingers so that a different fingertip is facing it, the haze will at first follow the old finger and then jump to the closer fingertip.
