What is an Aura?
Everyone is surrounded by aura. The aura is the bio-magnetic energy field that contains constantly changing colours. The aura is made up of several layers which interpenetrate each other as well as the physical body.
How do we interact with Aura?
Each layer vibrates at a different frequency which changes as we interact with each other. Our aura reshapes and changes according to what we feel and think. Therefore, the state of aura is directly connected to our emotional, spiritual, mental and physical health and also determines how protected you are on the energetic level.
Some people, especially psychics are able to perceive the aura as they have ability to attune into the subtle frequencies and energies. The aura can be photographed with a Kilian camera.
What are Chakras?
There is a system of subtle channels that run along the spinal cord. These energy centres are called chakras which means ‘wheel’ or ‘vortex’. This word originates from the Sanskrit.
Types of Chakras
There are seven main chakras running from the top of the head down to spine and to the bottom of our feet. The function of each chakra is to energise our physical bodies, to assimilate and to transmit life energies. Chakras draw the spiritual life-force energy (prana, or Chi) from the Universal Source.
- If our chakras are not functioning properly, our health will become affected due to lack of energy.
- The chakras draw our life experiences (feelings, thoughts, and emotions) into vortices.
- These experiences can sometimes become stuck and causing the energy blockages because we resist feeling the negative emotions.
- This creates blocks in our energy bodies, imbalances and diseases.
How do Chakras transmit energy?
Each chakra emits a specific colour and each one is connected to the endocrine glands in the physical body. The etheric body absorbs levels of energy from the environment and transduces this energy through chakras into the physical body via the endocrine glands. The endocrine system controls the hormone levels of the body which affects our mood, emotion, growth and reproduction. If therefore the chakras are out of balance, this will affect our endocrine system.

Now, let us discuss about each of these chakras in some detail:
ROOT CHAKRA (Colour: Red)
The Root chakra is based at the base of the spine. This chakra is the foundation of our whole system.
Therefore, if the root chakras is out of balance, we will feel ungrounded and unsupported. The grounding means being fully present in your physical body, present and aware so we can manifest our basic needs without harming another.

In woman, the imbalance is caused by forgetting its true purpose and power. The sacral chakra is associated with water and the moon. It is here, where all our suppressed, repressed emotions and wounds are found.

SOLAR PLEXUS (Colour: yellow)
What is a Solar Plexus? The solar plexus is a fire wheel associated with ego and the sun. This centre is associated with the personal power and individuality. The third chakra combines the matter and movement to create and using our will.
If the third chakra is balanced, we will create positive life experiences and we will be able to manifest our heart’s desires. If the chakra is out of balance, this means that the ego is in control. We have blocked ourselves from the Divine wisdom and guidance. The blocked energy can be recognised as aggressive behaviour because the energy is not able to flow freely.

The essence of communication is creativity. When throat chakra is open we will be able to listen to our higher selves and by divine.
