Sookshma sharir, cracked auras and health

The body that we live in has five layers. The inner most body is the causal body and has one layer, Anand-mai-kosh. The subtle body is the next 3 layers, the Praan-mai-kosh, Mano-mai-kosh and the Vidnyan-mai-kosh. This subtle body is in part ‘seen’ as the aura, some of us can see this. The solid material body is outermost Anna-mai-kosh, everyone with normal vision can see this.

The Sookshma sharir is the most ‘accurate us’ and is linked to the aura and reflects the health of the entire self. It is controlled by your Moon. The birth Moon and the influences on it define how it was made in the first place. The transit Moon and the effects of the transiting planets on the birth Moon show how it is modulated with time. In Indian/ Vedic astrology, the Moon is given very high importance because of his control over the Sookshma sharir. For normal householder type of people like us, of these three bodies, the subtle body is the most important.

So what has this to do with cracked auras or leaky auras?

Sookshma sharir, cracked auras and health

An example.

In this current age we are all obsessed with body weight. Everyone you see around you is interested in losing some weight! But weight loss/ gain is more connected to your subtle body rather than your solid material body. You can bring your body to its healthiest possible self and your body weight to the best possible number if you focus on your Sookshma sharir. But of course your dietician or your gym instructor will differ on this!

And remember your Sookshma sharir is linked to your Moon. He also controls your emotions, instinct, intuition, body liquids, nutrition, nurture etc. If your birth Moon or the transit influences on him are adverse, he will give bad results for all of these. You might find yourself in mental stress, argue with your mom, not get along with women, the home environment becomes stressful. emotional turmoil is possible etc. if this continues for a longer period then his influences on the sookshma sharir will trickle down into the material shell and you might see issues like water and electrolyte imbalances, weight fluctuations, improper eating/drinking habits, addictions, the nutrients of the food you eat not being absorbed etc. Eventually this will result in ill health.

One client, a woman was quite over-weight and there was no reason for her to be so. She ate sensibly, exercised etc yet was fat. But there were several reasons why her sookshma sharir was doing this ‘holding on to weight’ thing. She was the only woman in a family of men (post here). The birth Moon was very badly placed in the 6th house, aspected by Mars and Saturn. Moon/ Jupiter in the 6/8 axis added to the stress (Shakata yog post here). The Moon was debilitated in Navamsha, shifting to Scorpio. Neither the ascendant lord nor her Sun were strong enough to support the personality’s health. Ketu was placed in Aquarius which controls the lower feet and ankles. And Pisces in the 6th house was the feet. This was her birth chart so she was over-weight since she was small. This got worse after she got married and had children. (Her husband’s chart was not supportive for his wife’s health. Her children’s charts did not support the mother’s health).

All this finally was seen as actual cracks in the aura around her ankles and feet. The energy was ‘leaking’ out of her body through these cracks and her sole chakras. So though she was eating good food and resting etc, her subtle body did not have enough energy to sustain itself, it was desperate for ‘nutrition’. This stress to the subtle body, over time percolated into her physical body. This was translated into weight gain, or more correctly holding on to the weight. Her subtle body on the other hand was thin, tired and drained and urgently needed ‘food’/energy.

If you want to be a successful astrologer, Tarot card reader, Reiki healer or anything to do with energy or predictions, learn how to see auras it is a great help. And it is quite easy to do so (post here). Try to exercise your subconscious mind so that you become more aware of these non-material things (post here). Then you can literally ‘see’ the organs which are damaged, the damage to their individual auras, also negative energy curses, evil eye effects, black magic and spirits attacking the client, energy cords which drain their energy etc. This ability goes a long way in correct diagnosis of problems.

Sookshma sharir, cracked auras and health

So the solution for this client was to actively seal her aura everyday. There are several ways of sealing the aura, but the most important thing is the intention has to be strong. Reiki was a good way of doing it so she was told to visualise wearing knee high shimmery gold-silvery socks. She would visualise her legs from her knees to the tip of her toes to be covered by Dai-ko-mu and Cho-ku-re symbols. In addition she would intend that all the negative energy would be allowed to exit the body safely. No positive energy would be allowed to ‘leak’ out. All positive energy would be absorbed in her body and be used for her own rest and rejuvenation. She continued her life style as usual with an extra care to try to feel happy, rest and eat the thing she likes eating. And the whole thing worked, in about 2-3 weeks her face lost that ‘bloated’ look and she lost a couple of kgs. She continued doing this and within 3-4 months she was at the best possible weight for her body. This was not as low as the recommended weight for her height, but a few kgs more than that. She looked physically healthy and her subtle body had regained its ‘shine’. The aura was looking relaxed and energetic. She herself was feeling overall healthier and happier on the inside.

This leaky chakras and cracked aura was not a disease, but a part of who she was. It was an in-built thing depending on her own horoscope. So when the time came for her to recover her health, she met someone who could tell her what the real problem was and how to address it. As her Sookshma sharir started getting its proper energy nutrition, her physical body stopped ‘holding on’ to unnecessary weight and released it in the safest way possible over a period of few months.

Cracked or leaky auras are very common. This woman had a leaky aura from birth but intense negative emotions, stress, depression etc also cause leaks and cracks in the aura. Psychic attacks by negative entities, spirits and black magic also rupture auras. Being in a place where there are intense emotions of the negative types can also rip at the aura causing temporary cracks. So seal your aura daily either by Reiki if you have been initiated into Reiki. If not, here is a very easy way to do it, just keep your intention strong. Visualise two knots in the aura at your feet. Intend that only negative energy can exit, not positive energy.

Take care of your Sookshma sharir, ie do things which uplift your mind and make you happy. Stay away from depressive stuff, chaotic noises, low energy food/water. Do your regular spiritual practice and practices which increase pran flow in your body. Take care of your aura, do your shielding, cleansing and grounding. We are much more than the material self we see in the mirror.

Most people are sceptical about humans having auras, especially doctors by profession shrug it off as being an auto-suggestion, ‘You see it because you want to see it, you have self-hypnotised yourself into seeing it’ was one of my medico friends laughing at me. So I told him that he was having a weak liver and would fall ill soon, (the energy of the liver had gone grey) unless he took some liver tonic. Naturally he laughed at me again and then fell ill couple of weeks later.

Seeing Energy, Learn to see your Aura

I have written about learning to see auras in my past posts, but it seems that I will have to write it down step-wise. Learning to see auras is vital and very easy. This is how you learn, stepwise,

  1. Practice during natural daylight, in a silent well lit room. Artificial lighting can affect the color of the aura you see by putting its own shade of yellow/white over everything.
  2. Take a piece of white paper for using as a background.
  3. You are going to try to first sense and then see the aura of your fingers and hands. Relax your mind and your body, deep breathe a few times.
  4. Now extend your both forefingers out, point them at each other and slowly bring them closer, till they are about 1/2 cm away from each other.
  5. First try to feel the sensations at both the fingertips. You will feel repulsion. Both the fingertips will feel like magnets which are repelling each other. Take them away about 2 cm from each other and bring them again 1/2cm apart, try to feel the energy of the fingertips as they interact with each other. As you bring them closer the feeling of repulsion will be stronger.
  6. Now the next part, you will try to see the aura with your open eyes with your peripheral vision. Keep your fingers in the same position as (3), with the white paper as a background. Unfocus your eyes and with your peripheral vision look at the fingers and their tips where they are almost touching. Initially you will see nothing different, just your fingers and the skin color. Within a few seconds you will see a white or colorless outline around your fingers. This is not an afterimage, it is an outline around your fingers. This white outline will be about a few millimetres in width. This is the aura or the energy of your fingertips.
  7. Now move your fingertips apart (same as 4). The outline will move with the fingers, it is clearly defined. It will be rounded at your fingertip as per the tip’s shape. When you bring your tips closer again, you will notice that when these fingertip outlines start touching, you start feeling ‘repulsion’. This is the energy of the fingertips interacting with each other.
  8. Practice this a few times. Let your eyes rest in between, it is easy, especially if you are relaxed. You could see auras as a child and you are just revising, so don’t get stressed while doing this.
  9. Then suddenly you will see that this white outline suddenly expands to a few centimeters depending on your personal energy levels. As it expands it gets filled with color. This color may be blue, green, pink whatever (very very rarely silver, gold or rainbow colored). The aura color is densest near the skin and gets fainter as it extends out fading to colorless. The first time this happens will be like a burst of watercolor. It will look just like how a drop of blue water-color spreads in a drop of water.
  10. And you have learnt to see auras. It is easy, most people I know managed to see their colored aura of the fingertips in maximum 4-5 attempts.
  11. Now you can practice seeing the auras of people around you, animals, food, objects, sounds, thoughts. Aura is basically your astral body (sookshma sharir), you have started seeing energy again and new dimensions have opened for you.

Sometimes the energy of a person/place can be registered through the other senses too, you might get a metallic taste or an unpleasant smell or feel the hair on your skin standing up when near negative energy sources.

Another thing is that the aura is not oval as its shown in pictures, it moves. e.g. when someone walks by you you will see the aura trailing behind him. A simple experiment which you can try, in a day-lit room, in front of a white background, keep your eyes unfocussed and slowly wave your arm in front of you. You will see the aura of your hand trailing as you move your hand. Practice seeing the movements of the aura too.

At night, if you sleep in a pitch dark room, the human energy is awesomely beautiful. Something like the videos of the aurora borealis! It is incredible that we are so utterly beautiful. But being so obsessed with the physical we don’t even know how utterly captivating our energy bodies are. And as there is no material sensory input to the eyes, in the dark, you can see this energy with your eyes open or closed. Ultimately the real seat of sense is in the third eye, physical eyes are just an excuse! With age we forget to use the third eye chakra directly. Try to see your energies in pitch black, it is mesmerising.

If your energy is being sucked by others or you are under psychic attack or in a place with conscious negative energies who are draining you, you will feel cold, start shivering, feel a windy movement around you, feel like crying, actually you might start weeping, extreme sadness, despair, may wash over you. (I suffered through a psychic attack once.) And if this is severe enough you might black out. There are some stories that people went to haunted houses and went to depression or committed suicide, this is the extreme effect of psychic attacks.

You can increase the strength of your aura field by powering with mantra, wearing amulets, focussed intention etc.  And then there are the energy techniques like Reiki etc which add power to your intentions and actions. Keeping your aura clean requires a regular (weekly) grounding and cleansing routine.

Once a month or whenever you have 15 mins free and you are relaxed, scan your own body. Lie down, relax, do some deep breathing, the room should be pitch dark or use an eye mask. You will use the focussed energy of your mind/third eye to scan your self. Whatever you do, you are actually doing it with your ajnya/third eye chakra, this is the seat of the soul /Jivatma. So it works best if scan your body using the third eye directly.

  • Start with the left leg, ‘look’ at the big toe, feel its energy, let your sub-conscious mind work. Examine every portion of your leg, the energy, the aura of every internal muscle and bone.
  • You might see lines of gold-silver running along your body parts, the naadi/vital energy channels carrying pran. You might sense the flow of pran too, it should be smooth. A jerky flow of pran means that the organ it is supplying is suffering. If you can intend the flow to be smoother it will become smooth, so exercise your Will.
  • Then your right leg, the pelvic region, your torso, abdomen, chest, every internal organ, its aura. Every organ will have a different color depending on its health. If any organ seems brown, grey, black streaks or angry red colored they are over-tired and under stress. In such cases, visualise the organ/body part in an envelope of shimmery silver/gold energy/pran.
  • Then the left hand from the fingertips to the shoulder, then the right hand, the neck, the head and all the structures in the head till the tips of your hair. Your hair are very important energy sensors and the longer they are the better they work.
  • After you finish your full body scan you will now energise yourself. Remain lying and create your pearly shimmery silvery/gold shield again over yourself. If you have a favourite deity/ source of faith/ mantra/ Universe/ whatever, visualise this deity blessing you and recharging you. Hold this visualisation for as long as you can.

If you can do this once a month at least you will be disease free, mind will be stable and you will remain shielded perfectly.

  • In case you are new to all this and cannot work directly through your ajnya chakra, you can use your hands a tools to help direct your energy and sight. (But always use an eye mask)
  • Keep your hands relaxed palms open, no gaps between the fingers, relaxed and the palms slightly curved inwards.
  • eg, for scanning your leg, run your palms in this position along your leg slowly. Do not touch the leg, keep your palm a few centimetres away. You are sensing the aura so do not touch the skin. Focus intently on the sensations you receive from your palms.

And finally, strange as it seems, aura leaks! There are several reasons for this, and it happens often. The effect is that you get tired and mentally exhausted out of proportion to what you were doing. So the easiest way to stop aura leakage is to ‘tie it up’. No one will tell you this, this comes from experience. First make your pearly shield in the morning, just 5 seconds of visualisation is good enough. Then visualise two knots in the aura near your both legs. These knots will be with the intention to tie your aura to your own self very strongly. It works and you feel ‘warmer’ immediately.

So this is all from my personal experience and over so many years of seeing and working with energy. A quick re-cap post on on how to see aura, to keep it clean, energized and to use it to diagnose your personal energy levels. Do try it, it is very easy, you could do it as a child, it is just like learning to ride a bicycle again.
