The human body has an energy field around it that is called the Aura. The aura constantly moves and changes around us, expanding contracting and intensely changes and vibrates. Everyone has their own unique aura in size, color and quality. The auras of one person can be totally different form another person's aura. The shape of the aura around our body is an egg shape.
There are seven distinct layers of aura around out body, and each layer has a role that plays around us, meaning that each layer has a different role that it plays.
The three layers closest to our physical bodies are those that are most dense, making these layers more difficult to see and feel.
The Seven Layers of the Aura Body
The Physical Auric Body - This is the layer of energy that is closest to our body. This layer closely follows the shape of our body and is usually uniform in its size, being 4 to 8 inches deep. Irregularities in the shape or color of this band of energy can be an indication that there is an injury or problem with the physical body in this area.
The Etheric Auric Body - People with strong lives focus on their body like athletes and dancers who have a particularly strong etheric aura, as if it is this layer of aura that reflects the health and condition of the physical body. This layer also closely follows the shape of the body and is 2 to 3 inches away from the skin. When the body experiences pain, this layer reacts by scattering energy through out this layer.
The Vital Auric Body - This layer is the quality of our physical vitality and liveliness. This is related to how vigorous we approach our lives. If our energy in this layer is strong and clear, it will have good levels of physical energy, and we feel able to cope with life's demands. If this layer is low on energy or feeling sluggish and run down, the energy of the vital auric body may be depleted, congested or weak.
The Astral Auric Body or The Emotional Aura - Our energy interacts with others primarily concerns the astral auric body. When we are experiencing positive feelings and feel emotionally well and safe, the colors in this layer will typically be bright, clear and vibrant. Negativity will generate darker, muddier, and less vibrant color. Imbalances in the astral auric body can mean that our emotions prevent clear thought processes and influence our decisions. When this layer is in balance, it provides us with the sense of choice and the ability to transform our circumstances so that they are more personally fulfilled.
The Lower Mental Auric Body - This upper and lower mental auric bodies are sometimes viewed as two aspects of a single energetic layer, with the lower level being more to do with our conscious intellectual abilities and the upper brings more to do with our "higher" mental capabilities of which we may be less aware of. The lower mental auric body relates to our everyday intellectual capabilities and activities.
The Higher Mental Auric Body - The higher mental auric body is the layer from which we access higher intellectual knowledge, the wisdom and information available to the collective consciousness; such as the spark of an idea, the reflection on creativity, or the inspiration behind the pursuit of ideals. All these originate from this energy. When this aura is developed through increased awareness, personal growth and creative visualization, it can be extremely powerful in connecting with our purpose in life, and can give us a very strong and balanced perspective on our lives.
The use of recreational drugs impacts on this layer greatly, it will cause mental imbalance with drug abuse and can be a reflection of damage done in this layer.
The Spiritual Auric Body - Our connection to the divine, to our life source, to the collective consciousness, is through this aura layer. It is through this layer that we connect with each other and in fact to all living things.
In terms of energy, this layer is considered to be the most intense of all the layers. It's thought to be diffused throughout the energy fields of the body via the crown chakra. Very few people have ever claimed to be able to see this level of the aura. It is thought to be diffused throughout the energy fields of the body via the crown chakra.
