“Every cell in my body is loved and healthy”
Your aura is simply an extension of you. When strong it acts as a protective shield. When fragile or damaged it can leave you drained, unwell and feeling disconnected from yourself.
Think of your aura as your own personal body guard (in the form of a giant bubble) that simply “flicks off” anything stressful, disturbing or potentially draining that you may be sensitive too.
I’m a firm believer in cleansing and nurturing the aura for the overall integrity of our health and well being. Particularly, when many ancient cultures from around the world believe, that illness first starts with a weakness in our auric field.
Years ago I completed a crystal healing practitioner course, and discovered how effective crystals are in cleansing, repairing and strengthen the aura. Black tourmaline would have to be my favorite as it can draw off and then transmute negative energies we may have knowingly or unknowingly been exposed too.
If crystals are not your “thing” then I have shared with you below, a collection of aura cleansing and strengthening remedies that I have gathered and used (at some stage) over the past 20 years.
12 Great Ways to Strengthen Your Aura
1. Yogic cleansing bath
This recipe helps removes chemicals from your physical body and negativity from your aura. Soak for 20 minutes each day and repeat for 7 days. If you start to feel dizzy or a little weird leave bath immediately as you have successfully loosened and removed enough toxins and negativity for one day. 1 lb Baking soda 1 cup Sea salt
2. Sage Smudge Stick
The smoke from white sage is known by the North American Indians to be very cleansing. I love white sage and have used it successfully for over 20 years to remove negative vibes that I sense in my home or around me. Sage emits negative ions which is the good stuff you find in the air just after a storm or at the ocean. To cleanse your aura, simply light your sage smudge stick and use your hand to direct the smoke over your head, face, front/sides of your body, under your feet, around your hands and arms, and as much of your back as you can reach.
3. Let the Sun Feed your Aura
Lots of lovely sunshine is known to feed and expand the aura. Spending time outside amongst nature is incredibly healthy for your body, mind and soul. The sun fuels you with energy, optimism and loads of vitamin D whilst nature nourishes your senses and grounds you.
4. Sea Salt
Swimming in the ocean or soaking in a salt water bath greatly helps to cleanse the aura and draw out stress. The sun expands and feeds your aura whilst the sea carries away the negativity. If you don’t have a bath, and not near the ocean, simply give your body a sea salt scrub before taking a shower. Grab a handful of sea salt and rub it all over your skin before showering. It helps remove dead skin cells, refreshes your aura and draws out toxins.
5. Cold Shower
Cold showers have the ability to clear away negativity in your auric field, remove toxins, improve circulation and draw out tension from your body. I have personally put the cold shower theory to the test for a whole 3 months (over summer a few years ago). The results were amazing. My thoughts were clearer, I felt lighter, more energy and things which normally bothered me and hung around my thoughts for days – came and went with ease. I didn’t hold onto negative stuff like I had done before. It helped me greatly through a very difficult time in my life.
6. Sound Medicine
Sound is recognized by many ancient cultures as a healing tool. The sound from Tibetan singing bowls and crystal bowls are well known for their ability to dissolve negativity and clean your energies. Listening to their sounds before going to sleep is an easy way to support your overall well-being. Alternately chanting the sound “Om” is an incredibly fast and efficient way to shift stuck, stagnant or negativity energy from your aura and physical body.
7. Labradorite (crystal)
This crystal is worth a special mention. Labradorite has been shown by Kirilian photography to heal tears in the auric field by preventing leakage. Holding a labradorite crystal for 20 minutes will last for about 12 hours after the stone is no longer worn. It is dubbed the “healers” stone and is widely used as protection by body workers, teachers, childcare workers and nurses. It’s a great crystal to wear as a bracelet.
8. Reduce your Exposure to Electrical Stuff
The radiation and frequencies which are emitted from electrical gadgets, I believe, can interfere with our bodies own natural rhythms, cycles and well-being. Spending too long, at close range, to these man made frequencies can build up static in your auric field and can cause disturbances. Make your bedroom a priority to be as electrical free as possible. Charge all your gadgets away from your bedroom or at the very least away from your head when sleeping. Lepidolite is a fabulous crystal to have as a protective field of energy between you and your electrical gadgets. At home I place piece near our TV, beside the beds and near the computer. You will notice over time, the lepidolite eventually becomes paper thin as it absorbs the radiation. It’s quite amazing.
9. Vetiver (an essential oil)
A few drops applied to your belly button at night with help you from taking on too much of other people’s junk. Vetiver is very grounding, and particularly balancing when feeling spacey after long sessions in front of a screen. It’s excellent essential oil for calming and grounding and one of my favourite essential oils to use at home. Vetiver also has a special relationship with your chakras and helps to bring them into alignment. Your chakra’s are directly connected to your aura.
10. Black Tourmaline (crystal)
Great for deflecting radiation and is well known for transmuting negative energy from the aura. It’s a protective stone that can also help you with negative thinking. Its the perfect crystal to carry in your handbag. Crystals have been used for thousands of years for healing and protection. Smoky quartz on your desk or near the phone will protect you from other people’s stresses and negativity. Amber is an excellent stone to help strengthen your aura. Kunzite will detach unpleasant thoughts. I can highly recommend wearing an ametrine (amethyst and citrine) bracelet for around 3 – 6 months to heal tears and holes in your auric field that may have appeared from surgery, child birth or extreme stress.
11. Flower Essences
Fringed violet and Angelsword: Angelsword repairs and Fringed violet helps heal damaged or distressed auric fields. Take orally or dab 7 drops of each onto your solar plexus (just below your belly button) before going to bed. Both these flower essences come from the Australian Bush Flower essence range. If you don’t live in Australia I recommend buying the equivalent flower essences from your own country.
12. Be Mindful of People and Places that Zap your Energy
Notice which places, people or situations leave you consistently feeling zapped or drained. Limit yourself to these situations or at the very least wear a protective crystal to prevent your energy being leached. Labrodrite would be a good crystal to start with.
