What is the aura? You may be asking yourself. Well the aura consists in multiple bands of energy called auric layers or auric fields that encompass the body connecting us to the outside world. The Quabalists called it an astral light. Christian artists depicted Jesus and other figures as surrounded by coronas of light. Even Pythagoras discussed the field which was perceived as a luminous body.
Science has been actively involved in penetrating the mystery of the aura since the early 1800s. During that time period, Belgian mystic and physician Jan Baptist van Helmont visualized it as a universal fluid that permeates everything. The idea of the aura acting like a fluid or flowing as well as being permeable has remained consistent throughout history. Franz Mesmer for whom the term “mesmerism” was coined suggested that both animate and inanimate objects were charged with a fluid, which he perceived as magnetic, through which material bodies could exert influence over each other, even at a distance.
Other theories have revealed the aura to have a fluid or flowing state: to be comprised of different colors, therefore frequencies: to be permeable and penetrable and to be magnetic in nature although it also has electromagnetic properties.
In 1911 Dr. Walter Kilner examined the aura with color filters and a special kind of coal tar He discovered three zones: a dark layer next to the skin, a more ethereal layer flowing at a perpendicular angle o the body, and delicate exterior with contours about six inches across. Out important. Most important the conditions of this “aura” as he called it shifted in reaction to a subject’s state of mind and health.
In 1930s Dr. Lawrence Bendit and Phoebe Bendit observed the human energy field and linked it to soul development showing that the subtle forces are the foundations of health. There observations are mirrored by Dr Dora Kunz, a theosophist and intuitive who saw that every organ has its own field as well as the overall body which pulses with its own rhythm when healthy. When someone is ill. these rhythms alter nd problems can intuitive seen in the field.
When Dr. Zheng Rongliang of Lanzhou Universtity in China measured the flow of Chi from a human body with a unique biological detector, he shows that not only does the aura pulse but that not everyone’s field pulses at the same rate or intensity. This study was repeated by researchers of the Shanghai Atomic Nuclear Institute of Academia Sinica.
In the 1930s, Russian Scientist Semyon Kirlian and his wife, Valentina invented a new photographic process that involves directing a high frequency electrical field at an object. The objects pattern of luminescence “the auric field” can be captured on film.
Now according to scientists including James Ochman author of Energy medicine. The auric field is a bio magnetic field that surrounds the body. This biomagnetic field is composed of information from each organ and every bodily tissue. According to physicist Barbara Ann Brennan’s research suggests that the auric field is made out of plasma. Brennan says that this “bioplasma” is a fifth state of matter. Rudolph Steiner a brilliant author and philosopher suggested that the human energy field is made of ether, an element comparable to a negative mass a hollowed out space. We can only assume but perhaps the field is both electromagnetic radiation (specifically magnetism) and an anti matter that that allows a shift of energy between this world and others. Thus the propensity of healers to deliver healing energy based on intention is a matter of creating enough intensity in the “here and now” energies to access an equivalency in the anti worlds.
So after all this research we can see that the aura is part of the human energy field and has even been photographed by Kirlian photography. In other posts we will discuss what is the human energy field with a little bit of scientific perspective.
