Aura Awareness Day

Posted on Updated on

November 24th is Aura Awareness Day. It happens the fourth Saturday of November each year.  Simply put, an aura is the energy field around a person (animal, plant, or nearly anything else’s) body, which many people perceive as light- often in colors.

 

 

 

 

 

The auras of those with greater amounts of energy are easier for people to see, so in many cultures there’s a tradition of saints and other spiritually powerful people being depicted with this glowing field- often around their head, other wise known as a halo.

Many people see colors, and healers can often use the colors to diagnose illness by examining the auras. Others sense auras as a buzz, or change of temperature.

It’s rather exciting that people have started to recognize auras enough that a holiday has been made to raise awareness. It was started in 2002, but I haven’t yet found out who started it. It was established to raise awareness about auras and the leading role that these auras play in being healthy and happy. Many associate the colors of the auras with colors of the chakras. We combine studying ancient spiritual teachings about auras and colors with our personal experiences in the modern world.

Because “seeing is believing”, the traditions of auras became more accepte when Kerlian Photography was able to give scientists something they could document. Wikipedia says “Kirlian photography is a collection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges.It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who, in 1939, accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate.  ” It became more popular and well known in the 70s.

These days you can get a color image of your aura- and it’s fun to see the changes these photos show under different conditions (for example, at the beginning and end of the conference)!

It’s also fun to find the edges of your aura with dowsing L rods or other tools. Or learn to see or feel them more. Even if you can’t sense your aura, it’s there, and your emotional and physical health effect on your energy field, and it effects your health. One thing personal experience has shown is that if you have holes in your aura, your energy can leak out, leaving you feeling weak. Energetically closing these holes, often caused by physical or emotional trauma, helps you heal physically much faster.

We know that the aura is made of layers, from just at the edge of your skin, to extending several feet out around our bodies. Clearly at least one of these layers is protection- where we put up shields, keeping our own energy in, and energy we don’t want out. Other times we extend our auras to intersect and interact with the energy fields of other people- this is often used in healing, and happens naturally when we touch each other.

We speculate whether one (or more) of the parts of our energy bodies hold our consciousness during an out of body or near death experience, or when we dream, or when we die.

Clearly this is a complex and vast area of study, well worthy of our attention, and awareness. If nothing else, “celebrate” this awareness day by asking those around you what they know about auras, and by sharing, everyone’s knowledge becomes greater.

Create the Change

Posted on Updated on

You may have wondered about the rather unwieldy name for our conference. When we were designing the conference, we were trying to figure out what we wanted to accomplish. What we hope to do is to change our parent culture in which the reality of many energy fields, many beings and many effective practices that can enhance our lives are rejected out of hand. We were thinking how great it would be if our children’s generation lived in a world where it was accepted that people are psychic and you wouldn’t have to hint about it, talk around it, or pretend that it wasn’t real so that you wouldn’t be considered foolish. That’s backwards! How foolish is it to deny evidence‽

We feel that if we can get the world to accept these realities and both benign and useful (yes, some people still feel that anything “occult” must be dangerous!) that they will be available to enhance daily life. How much better off we are when we know the benefits of using herbs for medicinal as well as culinary purposes. Yet there are still people out there who figure that if a remedy doesn’t come in a box, it “can’t work”.

There are people who scoff at “water witching”, yet many people quietly have a dowser locate their well. The American Dowsing Society has groups that provide this service in third world countries, and their experiences show how well it works.

I know that I use dowsing nearly daily to find lost objects around the house. Our family uses crystals for healing, as well as homeopathy, acupressure and aromatherapy. All of these things are said by critics to be useless, and even harmful if they prevent people from going to “established” practitioners. If they weren’t working, of course we’d go to someone who could help.

But we need to change the story- the dialogue- how people talk about the unknown. At this point anything paranormal in film is still lumped into the Horror genre. As you may have noticed in the last paragraph, much of what I use these ‘supernatural’ techniques for is practical, finding lost objects or healing faster. The world would simply be easier to navigate if we didn’t deny an entire section of available human abilities. So when thinking about the future, think about a world where there is no resistance, no denial, no pretense that magick isn’t real. The world is changing, we just want to make it better.

Changing Times-Changing Worlds on the New Normal

Posted on Updated on

 

Please join Tchipakkan a on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, July 5, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

If you miss the live show, this is the link to the archive.

 

Some years ago some friends and I decided we needed

a conference for occult stuff in New England, and if no one else was going to do it, we’d do it ourselves. We wanted it to be more than just the “Spooky foo” collection of “isn’t that weird” experiences. Some of us had been doing psychic stuff and magick for 40 years or more, and wanted good instructive classes beyond the “introduction to” level. We also wanted to create / facilitate communication between different groups who do this stuff- who do energy healing, who talk to the dead, who dowse, who do divination, who know this stuff is natural and “Normal” (within certain parameters of normal). We called the conference Changing Times-Changing Worlds, because, as with the New Normal, we are hoping that in another generation we’ll have gotten to the point where the fact that people are psychic, that we can do magick, that “this stuff is real” will be accepted, and we’ll be able to mention it in public without worrying whether we’re going to be considered mad or stupid to believe in this.

The conference is going to be held in the Hudson Valley, November 3-5th this year, and if you want to learn more, listen on your computer at www.Liveparanormal.com, 8-9 edt Wednesday. (Or check out the w

ebsite www.CTCW.net , or both.)

If you’d like to join the conversation, ask questions, please call in 619-639-4606 (live only).

If you can’t tune in 8-9, Live Paranormal.com archives its shows by date, and I archive them by date, guest, and topic on my website: http://tchipakkan.wordpress.com/the-new-normal/directory-of-podcasts/
