“Your shallowness or greatness of the soul shows up in your aura.”
In the Kundalini Yoga, the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human being is recognized as a chakra. Through this center of consciousness, we can easily experience realms beyond the physical body. The eighth chakra combines the effects and holds the powers of all the other energetic centers. Once we begin to integrate all our chakras, the aura fully radiates to protect and project us. Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, thoroughly works to bring balance and strength to our entire system of energetic highways as well as the aura.
Our aura provides protection against disease and negative environmental influences while also projecting our true nature into the world. With a powerful eighth chakra we automatically filter negative influences and feel strong, healthy, vibrant. When the aura is weak, we seem vulnerable to everything around us like germs, attitudes, emotions and we feel sickly, shrunken, dim.
It is with the aura that we can embody the great human skill of radiance. A strong aura automatically uplifts and improves the workings of all the other chakras. It is a space of sensitivity that interweaves us with the entire universe and allows us to attract opportunities and wealth. With our eighth chakra we vibrate our highest consciousness and project our destiny. When we are in flow with our true purpose on earth, our aura is vibrant and we can affect universal forces with our mere presence.
