Did you know that your entire body is surrounded by the energy field, also known as aura?
In fact, every physical object and being in our universe has an aura.
Your aura is linked to your body's 7 energy centers or chakras, and it consists of 7 different layers, sometimes referred to as bodies or fields:
- Layer 1 - Etheric Body
- Layer 2 - Emotional Body
- Layer 3 - Mental Body
- Layer 4 - Astral Body
- Layer 5 - Etheric Template
- Layer 6 - Celestial Body
- Layer 7 - Casual Body
All of these auras are getting generated by the energy of your 7 chakras.
Each layer of your aura is a vibrational energy field linked to one chakra. The outside auric layers are larger and vibrating with higher frequencies.
The overall size of your auric field is influenced by your physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
When your chakras are balanced, and you feel healthy, your entire aura can stretch out to a few meters in radius, and it is very light in color.
Your auric field can be very small when your chakras are out of alignment.
Many intuitive people can sense or see some of these auric fields, but there are not many people who can see all 7 auric layers.
