Fountain of Light ExerciseWritten by Sam Stevens
An etheric body, also known as aura, surrounds every human being. This energy field is thought to be made up of you’re emanations of your life force, what Middle Eastern religions call Prana, Chinese call Chi and popular religions call Soul. An entire New Age cottage industry has sprung up around idea of taking electromagnetic pictures of these phenomena using Kirilian or electromagnetic photography. Psychics and Channelers take cues from colors revealed in these photographs to diagnose and interpret physical, spiritual and emotional conditions. The most prominent element of Etheric Body, or soul-structure as it is also known, is said to consist of aura itself, which is said to typical extend about three feet around physical body in all directions. This resembles a bubble of light that is typically sealed by a slightly thicker membrane that preserves autonomy of entity. Imagine a soap bubble filled with light and you get idea. Some people have larger, more expansive auras, and often you can recognize these people by way they seem to mysteriously fill their room with their presence. Others have very tall auras that seem to extend as far as six feet above their head. This elongation of aura, towards skies and realms of ascended masters, saints and angels is a goal of many devoted Buddhists, Christians and spiritual seekers. All of chakras play important roles in maintaining health of aura, but chakra directly involved in communication with angels is Crown Chakra. Above Crown Chakra, hovering about six feet above your head is thought to be source of what is usually called Higher Self, Divine Imagination, Holy Guardian Angel, or center of Christ Consciousness. This is usually seen as a small Sun or ball of shining light that emanates rays down through Crown Chakra. In order for this to happen crown chakra has to be open to receive what Buddhists call enlightenment. One way to understand Chakra system is to imagine that there is a string of multicolored Christmas lights connected from your base chakra up through your body to crown of your head. Connected to that is an extension card that further plugs into this power source about six feet above you. The idea is to send light up those bulbs by plugging into your energy source. That ball of light six feet above your head is what talks to other souls on your behalf, and also to angels. It sends messages to your chakras that in turn deal with issues of survival, sexuality, communication, your ability to give or receive love, self-expression, second sight and ability to receive divine guidance. If you manage to plug into this higher source and light up all your chakras, you are said to have awakened your Kundalini. The ball of light known as Higher Self, Divine Imagination or center of Christ consciousness relates very strongly to Heart Chakra, which is seen as a pinpoint of light and 3rd Chakra. The 3rd chakra is used as a kind of bellows to energize heart chakra each time you take a breath inside your body. Energizing 3rd and 4th chakras, by controlling breath is though to open Crown Chakra so that it can receive light and wisdom of messages sent from higher self to physical body. This pathway forms a kind of circuitry that energizes and strengthens your connection to your higher self and angels.
