What Is Freedom?

Freedom forthWith the celebration of Independence Day people often talk about freedom. Freedom is often thought of in terms of your country, democracy, etc. But is that really freedom?

Freedom can represent something different to each person.

Let me give some examples:

  • A person in prison would consider freedom being outside prison walls.
  • A person living in a dictatorship longs to live in a country that is democratic.
  • A homeless person might consider freedom having a roof over their head.
  • A sick person would consider freedom not having an illness.
  • A person who is financially broke might consider freedom having money to pay their bills.
  • A person in an abusive marriage would consider freedom being divorced.

Every person looks at freedom differently. True freedom comes from within you. I know you have heard this before, but it is true. There are people who are in prisons that still keep that freedom inside of their soul.

I always find the movie the “Shawshank Redemption” to be a good example of how a person holds onto hope and freedom inside of their soul despite the outward realities. The character Andy Dufresne is imprisoned for twenty years, yet inside of himself he holds on to hope of being a free man. He does not express this to anyone, but deep inside of him he makes a resolution that he will obtain freedom. It takes time and eventually he does become a free man once again.

There are people that are bedridden that still have freedom inside their spirit despite the fact that they cannot function their physical body. As a bedridden person I have a continual battle inside of myself to maintain the spirit of a free person. Sure, there are times that I feel totally despondent about my situation, but I hold on with everything I have. That freedom is within me and there will always be an answer if I just hold on long enough. Does that mean that I’m going to be miraculously healed? Not necessarily. It means that I must find a way to not let my circumstances defeat my soul.

Then there are the opposite, people who believe they are free who really are living like zombies following the crowd and not thinking for themselves. To me they are more imprisoned then anyone else. They are being controlled by the media, the Internet, television, movies, families, and even jobs. They do not realize that they are not free inside of themselves. They have to feel an attachment to something or else they feel completely lost. More and more I see people becoming zombies as technology advances. They have no clue how to think for themselves without some influence.

People often compromise their personal freedom for the sake of having peace in a situation. It does not mean you have to argue with someone, but do you really have to go along with someone else’s program? Not if it goes against your soul. Of course there are situations where it’s best to keep silent. Nowadays too many people are keeping silent when they should be speaking up for what they feel or believe inside themselves.

How do you obtain personal freedom? That takes deep introspection and examining all parts of you, the good, the bad, the dark, and the light. All of these elements we have within us and if we do not expose our internal self to all parts of who we are we really never know who or what we are.

So the first step to personal freedom is giving up everything you have been taught or thought and spending time examining your life completely. This can often be hard because sometimes you will become more depressed at the parts of you that you feel you cannot change. Change can come when you develop the attitude that you want a personal revolution.

The only real change always comes from within. External forces cannot change your internal self. Be patient as it does take time and like a snake you have to shed the old skin to become a new person. Peeling off the layers of yourself takes time and sometimes you may want to put some of the old layers back on as they are more comfortable. Sometimes a few of those layers need to be put back on after you have discarded the negative and counter-productive layers. This is where you have to really be willing to fight the battle within to obtain personal freedom.

So are you willing and ready to become free?

No matter what your circumstances it is within you to be a free independent thinker and person. Many of the great people throughout history, who made a difference in this world, were those who chose personal freedom. They are the ones who are written about in history books and remembered by many. The person who does not become free inside is often not remembered by many because they were just like everyone else.

We can become a diamond that sheds light on the world if we are willing to step out and be free. If you can endure the pressure it takes to be that diamond, you will shine.

That is true independence!

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” ~ Jim Morrison

44 Years Since Jim Morrison Passed

jim-reading-copia“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps, “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison certainly had a clear vision of his life. He was born December 08, 1943, and passed away July 03, 1971. For those who may not know he was a singer, songwriter, philosopher, and poet. He is most famous for his work with the musical group The Doors. I have traveled the world, and, no matter what language, if I sing a few verses of “Light My Fire”, everyone knows that song, and they always smile.

He did not play any musical instruments, but he heard all of his songs in his head. Then he would hum the tune to the other musicians in The Doors, and they would compose what he heard in his head.

At the young age of 21, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek formed the group The Doors. Within one year they had a recording contract and shot to the top of the rock and roll world with the song “Light My Fire” in the summer of 1967. From there everything they recorded was always on top of the rock and roll charts.

Jim never sought fame and always considered himself first and foremost a poet. As the money came pouring in, the rest of the group started buying fancy cars and houses. Jim did not care about material possessions. He lived very simply. All he usually had with him was his clothes and books. He was an avid reader and never was without a book in his hand. He lived in $10.00 a night motels. He tried to have a car, but every car he ever had he ended up wrecking. He finally gave up on cars.

He wrote four poetry books and paid to have them published. The thing he was most proud of was his books.

Jim was the first rock star to ever be arrested on stage during a performance. This happened December 9, 1967 in New Haven, Connecticut. He was booked on charges of indecency, public obscenity, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. Before the concert Jim was backstage making out with a girl. A police officer spotted them and said they had to leave. Jim told the officer he was in the band. The cop got pushy with Jim. Jim tried to push him away and then the cop maced him. .

Jim still went on stage and performed the concert. During the last song Jim started to tell the crowd about what happened backstage. The cops shut the music down and came directly onstage to arrest him. From that time onward the police were always looking for an excuse to come after Jim.

Unfortunately his fame could not be contained and it took over his life. He enjoyed many of the perks, but did not like losing his privacy, and found ways to get lost in the crowd. He was an alcoholic and drank mass amounts of whiskey a day. No one could control him, and things went downhill when he was accused of exposing his penis in front of an audience at a rock concert in Miami Florida. He was arrested and faced Federal prison time for lewd lascivious behavior, two misdemeanors for public profanity, two for public exposure and one for public drunkenness. No one could prove that he did such a thing, and, considering how many photographs were being taken nonstop at the concert, it is highly unlikely that it happened because there is no proof.

Because he was so famous and considered a hippie, the courts were going to let him have it full on. For that reason he decided to take a break from everything and go to Paris to see if he could lose his identity. The pressure of facing prison time was more than he could handle. He found no matter where he went he was known. It must have seemed like there was no escaping for him.

The official cause of his death in Paris is from a heart attack. No one knows for sure, but the bottom line is he did die at a young age having changed the face of rock and roll. He has never been forgotten. In fact his fame has grown, and he is considered a rock legend. His estate brings in millions of dollars a year. Every year young people discover the work of Jim Morrison and become fans. Just like he said no one would ever forget him and that was very prophetic.

I saw The Doors perform at the Los Angeles Forum in 1968 at the height of their fame. I had always liked their music, but I was not a big fan of Jim Morrison. At this particular concert he set on the edge of the stage and read poetry for 45 minutes. I was sitting in the floor section right in front of the stage and people kept lighting sparklers and matches and sending them flying at the stage screaming, “Sing Light My Fire.” I had to keep covering my head to keep from getting burned. Finally the group did play Light My Fire and afterwards left the stage. Having lived in Los Angeles and seen every major group like the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, and many more, I considered it the worst concert I had ever seen.

I continued to buy every album The Doors made. The songs were powerful, and I really enjoyed their music. I knew I would never waste my time going to see another one of their concerts.

I was in Santa Monica, which is right next to Venice California and one of Jim’s favorite cities, when I heard that he had died. It was sunset, and, as I watched the sun go down at the ocean, I kept thinking about what a terrible waste and it had only been a few months since Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin had died at the age of 27. Ironically, Jim died on the same date as Brian Jones, of The Rolling Stones, who had died in 1969. Jim wrote a poem for Brian Jones right after his death called, “Thinking of Brian Jones While Sitting in Los Angeles.”

Now comes an unusual part to my memories of Jim Morrison. In 1984 I was taking a class in Transpersonal Psychology and we were given an assignment to write about two parts of ourselves and have them communicate back and forth. I saw myself as two different things first as a deer and the other as Jim Morrison. As I was doing this dialogue between the deer and Jim, it became clear that he was there to teach me how to be an individual and face life like a rebel. I had lost my identity in a bad marriage and felt like a deer that at any moment was going to be shot down. This was the reason to learn how to be a rebel.  It was certainly fascinating because I had not thought of Jim Morrison other than when I heard his music.

I did not have any albums any more, but, after writing this story, I kept hearing over and over in my head the song “Waiting for the Sun.” Finally I had to go out and buy the cassette, and, as I listened to this song, I started hearing Jim Morrison talk to me. This was his way of letting me know that he was in my life as one of my spirit guides. My first thought when I realized this was – why wasn’t it John Lennon or Jimi Hendrix who I really liked.  Why did it have to be wild and crazy Jim Morrison?

I am sure that many people are thinking as they read this that I am crazy. No, I knew about spirit guides, but never gave it much attention. From that point on I started paying attention and have learned a great deal, and it has not always been easy, but I am grateful to have this guide. Many people have felt a connection to Jim Morrison outside of just being a fan, and I know that he is working in spirit to help many people.

Jim Morrison lived his life as a free spirit and chose not to be tied down to the conventions of the day. He was a loner and his idea of what a good place to go to relax was a topless bar next to the office of The Doors or his favorite hole in the wall Mexican restaurant in Venice California. He never had an entourage nor did he have security. He walked the streets of Venice and Hollywood freely. He proved you could be a superstar and still live in whatever way you wanted.

His being free is what disturbed so many people including the law and the government. The powers that be do not like when someone shows them what true freedom is.

I cannot imagine any current musical artist choosing this type of life. This is what sets Jim Morrison apart from so many of the others. It is sad that the music world today is nothing more than just commercialism. I am thankful that I was around in the 60’s to see some of the greatest creative artists express themselves freely. It was a wonderful time to be alive.

I am glad Jim Morrison shared his talent with the world. He will never be forgotten.

I will leave you with this final thought from Jim Morrison.

“I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.”

Thank you Jim for all you left us,

My Favorite Song by The Doors

My Father’s 97Th Birthday

Me , My Mother and Father in 1967

Me , My Mother, and Father in 1967

I wrote a tribute on Father’s Day to my father, well June 26 is his birthday. This year he would have been 97 years old. I cannot begin to imagine him at that age. The last fifteen years of his life was hard on him as he suffered from Parkinson’s disease. I watched him go down bit by bit and it was rough as he had always been such a strong, intelligent, and powerful man.

At the age of 76 he could not do anything for himself anymore.  Thanksgiving weekend 1994 he ended up in the hospital and collapsed into a coma within hours.  This is where my biggest spiritual learning came into place.

He was comatose and I knew that he had a great fear of dying. What I did was put myself in a hypnotic state and I projected myself to his hospital room and there I took his spirit and we traveled to the other side (the fifth dimension). I had never done this before in my life, but I was desperate for him to be able to pass and not be kept alive on machines

I figured my mother would be the first one to greet him as she passed away several years before. Surprisingly the person that greeted my father on the other side was his army sergeant who had been killed in World War Two. My father was so happy to see him again. I waited at the entrance and my father went and visited so many people that he loved and loved him. I could hear him and the others laughing and talking.  When he was finished he came to me and we transported back into his hospital room and he went back into his body.  The next day he died. I knew that he died without fear.

The following morning as I awoke my father was screaming into my right ear everything he wanted me to know. I woke up saying, “Dad, you’re hurting my ear. Stop talking so loud.” I then did my best to remember exactly what he had been saying. It amazed me. I had never had such a spiritual connection in my life. Over the next few days he appeared to me, each time with a message. Throughout the years he has continued to communicate and on rare occasions I have been able to see him. It’s absolutely fascinating. He’s definitely my main Spirit Guide.

So not only did my father teach me so much when he was living, but he taught me a great deal after he died.  So I attribute my spiritual abilities as being inherited from him.

I know that I was blessed to have such a wonderful man as my father in my life.  So I just want to say “Thank you Daddy for everything. I know you will be waiting for me when I cross over. I love you.”

Your daughter,

Remembering and honoring Michael Jackson Six Years after His Passing.

terrific-picture-of-the-king-copiaIt’s hard to believe it’s been six years since Michael Jackson passed. True legends never die and Michael Jackson will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers ever.

Michael’s style was unique and totally original. From the time he became famous as a child it was evident that there was something different about this young boy. As he grew and became an adult he proved what a remarkable artist he was with his dynamic album “Thriller.” His dancing was magical and there was no way you could not take your eyes off of him when he performed. He knew how to captivate an audience.

His charitable work was a constant love of his. When he was alive he gave to more charities than any other entertainer at that time. He had great empathy for those that were suffering in this world. He understood suffering as he did not always have an easy life growing up and being famous. They were both difficult and filled with hardships. People only saw the glitz and the glamour and not what went on behind the scenes.

No matter what he was going through Michael always did his best to show appreciation and love for his fans. He understood that they were the reason he was successful.

His passing at the age of 50 was a shock for so many, but I feel that the pressures he went through took a hard toll on his life. What he did was leave a great legacy of work in his music, dancing, poetry, writing, and humanitarian work.

I was privileged to be able to speak to his spirit after his passing and I learned a great deal about Michael Jackson that I never knew. I had not been a fan of his although I always knew he was a great entertainer. I prefer hard rock and roll and his type of music just did not appeal to me.

Channeling his spirit changed my life in more ways than one. I never would have thought of contacting his spirit, but I was asked by a radio station if I could contact him a few days after his passing. I was able to do it on radio and from there I continued channeling him until he had delivered the messages that he wanted his fans to hear and then it was time for him to move forward on his spiritual journey.

If you would like to hear one of the messages I received from Michael’s spirit Click Here.

Getting close to his spirit helped me understand this gentle soul and what he went through during his lifetime. It’s easy for people to judge another, but until you walk or moonwalk in another’s shoes, you do not know what they have gone through. Michael was a beautiful soul who was greatly misunderstood. I know that he is happy and at peace in the spirit world.

Whenever I put my CD player on jukebox and the song ‘Billie Jean’ comes up I just consider it a little hello from Michael and it always makes me smile. His music was the gift he left the world and through it he will always communicate.

His music and performances will always live on. Many generations from now people still will be emulating his performances. His legacy will never die!

Many blessings,

My Father-My Hero. A Father’s Day Tribute

My Father and I

My Father and I

Many girls growing up find that their first hero is their father.  My father remained my hero throughout his life and even after his death.

He was born into poverty in a small town in Tennessee in 1918.  His parents were Cherokee and had come from Oklahoma when they were children. My father had two younger brothers and a sister.  His father disappeared by the time he was six years old.  At that point his mother told him to take his brothers and sister and find a way to survive.   He took care of his siblings by working on farms and they would sleep in barns.  He never went to school because all he did was work.  He was not above any work.  When he became a teenager and he was able to purchase a small amount of land and start his own farm.

He enlisted in the army at the start of World War II and discovered there was a whole world outside of Tennessee.  He was stationed in the South Pacific and he fought many different battles against the Japanese.  The last battle killed his entire platoon and critically wounded him.  He played dead until the next platoon came in and rescued him.  They did not think he would live six months because of his injuries.  He left the army with a Purple Heart and as a sergeant. He then returned to Tennessee.  The army had given him a thirst for the world as well as providing him the education to read.  He was offered training and started learning engineering.

He began dating my mother and they married in 1950.  He was offered a position working in aerospace manufacturing in Chicago and together they left and within a year I was born.  My father’s legal name was Bill.  People often thought his name was William and he would answer, “I am just plain Bill.” I was named after him as I was his only child.

My father’s intelligence landed him a top position in Los Angeles California manufacturing aerospace bolts.  My parents relocated.  He became a master in the field of aerospace fasteners.  He worked two jobs a day knowing he would be his own boss someday.  Work kept him away a lot when I was growing up, but I always felt his strength and knew that I could turn to him for anything.  He opened his own business manufacturing aerospace bolts in 1960.  At the age of nine I begin to understand the value of work operating drill presses and lathes.

His business grew year after year because of his determination and intelligence.

My father very rarely spoke to anyone.  When he did talk it was always profound. We would have conversations as I was the only person he truly trusted. I always felt so special during our time alone together. I knew he was a great man and took to heart what he would say to me.

My father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1982 and everyday things became more and more difficult for him to do. In 1987 my mother passed away suddenly devastating my father.  He told me that he did not feel the same after she died and it was hard for me to see him start going down physically and mentally. He still was my hero.  By then I was crippled and bedridden and unable to help him. My father passed away December 27, 1994. Click Here to read about my father’s passing into spirit.

Some of my fondest memories of my father are:

  • He was the most optimistic person I have ever known.
  • Once his business grew and he was successful he continued wearing jeans and work shirts that were always covered in oil and he would go to auctions, banks, and other financial places dressed like that. He said, “If they treat me decent dressed like this that’s the person I want to know.”
  • He was so sharp and intelligent that if I did not get something quickly he would say, “I can do it while you’re thinking about it.” And it was the truth it was not a put down.
  • He had to fire an employee one day and the employee came back later in the afternoon with a gun and was going to kill one of the employees he did not like. My father talked the man out of killing the other guy and got the gun from him all by talking.
  • No matter how tough things got for him he would always say, “I will make it if I have to crawl.” That phrase has kept me going through many difficult times, even when I was truly having to crawl.

There are so many other memories that I have they would fill a book. Perhaps someday I will write a book about the greatest man I knew-My Father.

The only jewelry that I wear is my father’s dog tags from the Army

I look forward to the day that we are reunited in spirit.

Happy Father’s Day to All Fathers Living and in Spirit!

Many blessings,

Welcome the Summer Solstice June 21, 2015

On this the longest day of the yearThe solstice heralds the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21 2015 at 12:38 P.M. EDT

Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning “sun” + “to stand still.” As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky.

The summer solstice is a time to celebrate the ending of the waxing year and the beginning of the waning year, in preparation for the harvest to come. Midsummer is when all may absorb the Sun’s warming rays and it is a celebration of fertility, not only for humans, but also for crops, animals and all beings.

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and the first day of summer. While those in the Northern Hemisphere cover up with sunscreen, residents in the Southern Hemisphere will be wrapping up in their warm clothes in honor of the winter solstice — the shortest day of the year and official start of winter.

Stepping into sacred time is becoming more and more important to our success as spiritual entrepreneurs. Focus on what you want to accomplish over the next few months that will bring peace and happiness into your life.

Stay out of your head as much as possible. Be more of an observer of your thoughts than the thinker of them. Quiet your mind and spend time in nature reconnecting yourself. This is where summer can be a very healing time.

Every single line of energy we have in our bodies and light bodies is being opened, expanded and utilized right now – and some of these energy lines have never been opened up inside of us in this way before. So it can feel a little startling, disconcerting, even bring up anger or frustration. It can also make you feel euphoric, energized, and like your gifts are being magnified – because they are.

We are receiving yet another upgrade to our human and light systems. In other words, our cellular structure is being prepared very quickly, in time for this new energy that Summer Solstice and a number of other celestial events are bringing in. Our spirits are being more fully integrated with our bodies. For some of you it’s happening right now and for some, it will happen closer to or on or just after Summer Solstice.

You know how this whole year so far has been an acceleration of your release of all that does not serve you? Well, right now, it’s as if we’re being squeezed and internally shifted to facilitate the massive release of what remains that needs to leave us.

If ever there was a time to let go and allow… that time is now. The more you resist it, or live in your head about it, the harder it will feel. The more you can allow this energetic/spiritual/physical upgrade, the easier and more amazing you will experience your transformation and success.

The Summer Solstice is called Midsummer or Litha in some medieval and Craft traditions; and Alban Hefin or Alban Heruin in other Celtic and Druidic traditions. In the mythical cycle, this is the end of the reign of the Oak King, and the beginning of the Holly King’s rule.

Litha is a time of great magical power. All forms of Sun magic are going to be amplified, and especially effective for love, healing and prosperity. This is also a very good time to perform blessings for your pets and home.

May the children of Earth awaken, rise up, and be about healing and blessing we need to give one another, and for our holy Mother Earth, our home. In the way of our ancestors, we honor the Turning.

Early Celebrations

Awed by the great power of the sun, civilizations have for centuries celebrated the first day of summer otherwise known as the Summer Solstice, Midsummer (see Shakespeare), St. John’s Day, or Litha.

The Celts and Slavs celebrated the first day of summer with dancing and bonfires to help increase the sun’s energy. The Chinese marked the day by honoring Li, the Chinese Goddess of Light.

In ancient Egypt, the Solstice herald the New Year. In Ancient Egypt, the summer solstice preceded the appearance of the Sirius star, which the Egyptians believed was responsible for the annual flooding of the Nile that they relied upon for agriculture. Because of this, the Egyptian calendar was set so that the start of the year coincided with the appearance of Sirius, just after the solstice.

The ancient Chinese honored the Yin on the Solstice In ancient China, the summer solstice was the yin to the winter solstice’s yang—literally. Throughout the year, the Chinese believed, the powers of yin and yang waxed and waned in reverse proportion to each other. At the summer solstice, the influence of yang was at its height, but the celebration centered on the impending switch to yin. At the winter solstice, the opposite switch was honored.

Perhaps the most enduring modern ties with Summer Solstice were the Druids’ celebration of the day as the “wedding of Heaven and Earth”, resulting in the present day belief of a “lucky” wedding in June. Now we understand why June has traditionally been the most popular time of the year to be married.

Today, the day is still celebrated around the world – most notably in England at Stonehenge and Avebury, where thousands gather to welcome the sunrise on the Summer Solstice. Stonehenge is an ancient prehistoric site and has been a place of worship and celebration at the time of Summer Solstice since time immemorial.

Pagan spirit gatherings or festivals are also common in June, when groups assemble to light a sacred fire, and stay up all night to welcome the dawn.

Summer Solstice Fun Facts

  • Pagans called the Midsummer moon the “Honey Moon” for the mead made from fermented honey that was part of wedding ceremonies performed at the Summer Solstice.
  • Ancient Pagans celebrated Midsummer with bonfires, when couples would leap through the flames, believing their crops would grow as high as the couples were able to jump.
  • Midsummer was thought to be a time of magic, when evil spirits were said to appear. To thwart them, Pagans often wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers. One of the most powerful of them was a plant called ‘chase-devil’, which is known today as St. John’s Wort and still used by modern herbalists as a mood stabilizer.

“Whatever is dreamed on this night, will come to pass.” ~ William Shakespeare

Now is the perfect time to connect to the Earth’s Energy. If you have wanted to make changes in your life is never too late to  create a new you !

Solstice Blessings,

Learn about Auras

aurasThe Care and Keeping of Auras

Derived from the ancient Greek word avra, meaning “breeze,” the word “aura” refers to a subtle field of electromagnetic energy which surrounds the body, extending as far as five feet in a person with healthy energy. One’s aura is not a singular energy layer, but is in fact comprised of five distinctive layers which correspond to different levels of existence.

An unhealthy, depleted aura signals a manifestation of discord within the body, whereas a clean, vibrant aura reveals the presence of a compassionate and well-attuned consciousness. From a practical standpoint, auras help us acknowledge imbalances as they occur within our both our spiritual and physical bodies.

Layers of the Human Aura

The first layer of the aura corresponds to the physical body — the building blocks, functions and processes which play a role in physical health and wellness. This aura layer usually manifests as a sheer layer of energy close to the body. The second layer of the aura corresponds to the emotional body, appearing healthy or unhealthy based on the predominant emotions of the subject and the vibrational level of those emotions. Layer three of the aura relates to the mental body — the part of us that forms our belief systems and stores our memories. The fourth layer corresponds to the spiritual body, which deals with our karma and higher planes of existence. Finally, the fifth layer represents the astral body, also referred to as our “etheric double,” an exact replica of the physical body that can interact on the astral plane of existence.

Interpreting Auras

The layers of one’s aura do not remain the same from year to year; in fact, they fluctuate every day based on the interaction of various psych-spiritual factors. If a person is suffering from a physical illness (like the flu, for example) the evidence would be visible in the appearance of the first aura layer. Fluctuating moods and emotions could be tracked by viewing the second layer of the aura, while issues relating to mental wellness may manifest as fluctuations to the third layer, and so on. It can be difficult to distinguish the different layers, especially for those who aren’t skilled at viewing and interpreting auras. However, most people can be trained through spiritual practice and aura gazing techniques to distinguish the layers of the aura and what different colors and changes represent.

When it comes to auric energy field colors, there are a rainbow of hues in which auras manifest. In general, the clearer and more vibrant the color, the healthier the aura. Individuals with damaged auras may show holes and tears in their auric field, or murky, polluted colors that look “dirty.” An individual with a red aura may be extraordinarily passionate, while an orange aura usually represents a creative, dynamic individual. Green auras are often seen in empathetic people who are strongly connected to nature, while blue auras (a quite common color) represent a sense of relaxed calm in the individual. Predominant aura colors can fluctuate multiple times in one day based on what a person is doing or feeling. Understanding how to interpret auras can help practitioners delve deeper into the psyche of an individual and pinpoint trouble spots in their everyday life.

Cleansing and Strengthening Your Aura

Even for the healthiest individual, it’s important to practice regular cleansing and strengthening of the auric field. Auras are magnetic in nature, accumulating environmental debris. Empaths often find they pick up energies from others that latch onto their own aura, which can be problematic for their physical and subtle bodies. To combat this, it’s important to perform regular auric cleansings. Smudging the aura with a bundle of white sage is an effective way to cleanse and strengthen all five auric levels. Bathing in warm water infused with a cup or so of sea salt is another method (made even more effective by meditation during the bath.) Regardless of how you choose to cleanse and fortify your aura, it’s important to ground and center your energy through meditation and visualize your aura being healed, cleansed and imbued with a resilient strength.

Maintaining Auric Balance

Besides practicing regular aura cleansing and strengthening sessions (through smudging, sea salt baths and meditation,) it’s important to strive for auric balance. Working with (or even carrying) protective and healing crystals and gemstones like amethyst, quartz, amber and green tourmaline can help keep your aura in balance. Practicing healthy lifestyle habits is another good way to protect your aura and keep it in check. Your aura is your personal security – arm and ready your physical body with adequate sleep, enough sunlight, moderate exercise and nutritious whole foods. Avoiding negative people and situations also helps to bolster the power of your auric energy. Your body is a temple, remember to honor it as such.

Even though auric energy may be difficult to perceive with the naked eye, it is responsible for both regulating and balancing multiple systems within the body. Improving your intuitive abilities can help you clear your mind’s eye and better understand what your own aura says about the state of your own personal health. Cultivate the strength and vitality of your aura, and you can expect to be repaid in full as your newfound outer radiance shines on all those closest to you.

Many blessings,
