Warding Off Negative Influences – How To Keep Your Aura Strong

Every person has a unique aura that reflects their current condition. People who  are sick or emotionally upset have weak shadowy auras, while healthy happy  people have auras that are strong bright auras. A strong healthy aura is  essential in blocking negative influences from draining energy and vitality from  us.

There is no scientific definition for an aura. Many scientists are  certain they do not exist. Others, while they are open-minded, can not describe  auras in scientific terms. Some people present photographs as evidence of auras, but many sceptic declare them to be fakes. However, people with psychic abilities can see and read auras. It is possible  that the halos you see in traditional religious art are actually auras. For this  article, we accept the reality of auras as fact.

People with strong  positive auras are naturally charismatic and attract others to them. They tend  to be more successful in getting things done and getting support from other  people. People with negative auras tend to be self-promoters that drive others  away from them, and those with strong negative auras may be evil. It is possible  that negative auras can become parasitic and literally steal energy from  positive auras.

It is important to remember that the aura has little  power of its own. It derives from a person’s internal condition – physical,  psychological, emotional, and spiritual. It is the tool by which psychic healers judge a person’s overall health and  well-being. To have a strong positive aura means you have a strong healthy body,  well-balanced psychological and emotional health, and a spiritual maturity and  strength.

A weak or negative aura indicates physical illness or disease,  conflicted emotions, unresolved psychological issues, and/or limited spiritual  development. Therefore, when you strengthen your aura, you are actually making  progress in becoming a healthier, more well-balanced person with a stronger  spiritual base.

Negative people can and do influence positive people.  Psychics can actually see this in the interaction of auras where the negative  person’s aura seems to drain the positive person’s aura of its energy and light.  The positive person will feel it when it happens – they may feel more tired or  weaker, their mood may lose some sparkle, or they may get a feeling of  uneasiness or anxiety.

On the other hand, positive people can influence  negative people as well. Their energy and vitality can literally flow into a  person with a negative or weak aura. Psychic healers do this. They send, through  their aura, positive energy to the negative person. And the stronger the  positive person, the stronger their aura, the less likely they will be to let a  negative person steal their energy.

No one wants to be around a person  who is constantly pessimistic and depressed. That’s because the negativity is  contagious. They negative person literally drains more positive people. But the  stronger you are, the healthier and happier you are, the less vulnerable you  will be to negative influences.

What causes negative auras?

People  with negative auras are frequently seriously ill, whether it is due to a  physical, mental, or spiritual disease. Drinking, smoking, and taking drugs can  weaken your aura. Stress, conflict, and violence can, too. Too little exercise, mental stimulation, positive social interaction, or spiritual connection can produce a dark weak aura. And engaging in immoral activities can be disastrous – crime, deviant behaviours, and misuse of your fellow man can produce an aura as  dark and thick as night. Negative auras can be extremely powerful, reflecting  the inner turmoil that creates them, and they can influence the people around  them in very serious ways.

Some people believe that negative energy isn’t  always associated with a living human being. Restless spirits of people who  passed away before they were able to resolve conflicts are one example of a  negative entity that can still influence the living. And just as there are  positive spirits, like angels, there are negative ones. No one can prove or  disprove their existence, but many people have experienced the powerful effects  of having negative entities influencing their lives.

How can I protect myself from negative energy and  auras?

People with positive auras, on the other hand, are better able to  withstand negative influences. Their good health is a strong protective barrier, and they less susceptible to drains on their energy and vitality. If you want to  have a stronger, more positive aura, you need to become a stronger, more  positive person.

There are also techniques we can use to protect  ourselves from negative energies and entities and maintain a healthy aura. All  of these techniques serve to help become more powerful in our psychic abilities  and more sensitive to external influences that might harm us.

An  important first step is to learn to use and trust your intuition. For example,  have you ever been involved in a conversation with someone and felt a knot form  in your stomach? This knot was telling you that this person is negative and may  be draining your energy. Relying on those internal messages more may be one way  to protect your positive energy and aura.

However, many people have  trouble distinguishing intuitive knowledge from emotional reaction. When you  begin to develop your intuitive skills, you must take care that you’re not  letting your feelings about a situation masquerade as intuition. There is no  school or class for telling the difference. The best way to learn is through  trial and error, being willing to make mistakes, and through self-knowledge.

Looking into your motivations is important. Perhaps you got that knot in  your stomach because you wanted to punch the person in the mouth. That is not  intuition. It is emotion. You are the only person who can interpret these signs,  and self-knowledge is an important tool in differentiating intuition from  irrational emotions.

Another way to become stronger and healthier, and to  have a strong positive aura, is to avoid things that weaken or harm you. Avoid  junk food, alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. They weaken your defences and personal  resolve. They cloud intuition and increase emotions. Counter-balancing the  avoidance of negative things is incorporating more healthy things into your  daily routine – exercise, nutritious foods, positive social experiences, prayer  and meditation.

Meditative activities strengthen you and your aura.  Listening to soothing music or reading an inspirational or uplifting book helps  clear your mind and body of negative influences and builds your resistance to  them. Meditation helps you tune out externalities and tune in to your own  strengths and wisdom. Meditation is a very important and rewarding tool for  becoming healthier and having a stronger, more positive aura.

You can  also use some objects that may have a healing or protective effect. Amulets are  thought to fend off negative spirits. They come in many shapes, forms, and sizes  and are made of a variety of materials. Used since time began by native and  primitive peoples, they can be worn as jewellery or carried in a pocket or purse. Some people use  specific stones as amulets. Popular stones for this purpose include onyx,  hematite, double-terminated quartz, and aragonite. They are also called  protection stones.

If you feel that you are being attacked and someone or  something is trying to drain your energy, you might try taking a physical  position to block it. The point is to protect yourself mentally, physically, and  spiritually at the same time. Take a position that blocks out external  influences by crossing your arms in front of your chest, cross your legs. Make  all your fingers on your left hand touch the fingers on your right hand. Close  your eyes, clear your mind, and take long slow even breaths until you begin to  feel comfortable and protected.

Closing yourself off in this way will  not only protect you from negative influences, it will stop your energy from  reaching other people. It’s a way to take a psychic break and allow you to  refresh and strengthen your own body and spirit. Your aura will, in turn, become  stronger, more light, and more resistant to negative influences.

The Essential Keys to Spiritual Development

The Essential Keys to Spiritual Development. How many of us view having inner balance, a sense of oneness and peace with the world as something that truly completes us?

The Essential Keys to Spiritual Development

When we think of our wellbeing, the first thing that usually comes to mind is our physical health. We equate it with how fit we are, how healthy the food we eat is, and how much vitamins and mineral supplements we ingest. But how often do we primarily equate it with spiritual development? How many of us view having inner balance, a sense of oneness and peace with the world as something that truly completes us? If you feel that you need to work on this area of your life, here are some of the essential keys you need to know and practice:

Control your thoughts. 

Spiritual development starts with removing all negativity from your thoughts. For instance, if you’re the type who always thinks of the worst case scenario, train yourself to be rational. Did your spouse fail to return your calls or messages on time?

Rather than quickly assuming that they may have gotten into an accident, think of alternative, less nerve-wracking reasons. They may be in an area where the signal is pretty bad; hence they are unable to respond. Or they may have gotten caught up in a last minute emergency meeting in the office. Choosing to think of the “lesser evil” of the possible reasons will help calm you down and sustain your inner balance.

Control your actions. 

Your actions in the heat of the moment reflect the state of your inner balance. Don’t let your knee-jerk reactions get in the way of your spiritual development. You need to be in control of yourself during trying times. Getting carried away will only open you up to a world of regret when you have calmed down and reflected on your unsavoury behaviour. So if you want to minimize regrets and lessen the chances of destroying relationships permanently, count one to ten before you slap the offending party in the face!

Control your emotions. 

Spiritual development is also dependent on your ability to control your emotions. If you get easily flustered, panicky or hysterical when you hear bad news, get insulted or receive poor reviews, you won’t be able to attain inner balance and peace. Not to mention you will surely end up with high blood pressure and extreme anxiety which could lead to serious health issues!

So the way to solve this is to build emotional resilience. Learn to detach yourself from the smallest, most insignificant things and focus only on those that matter. Handle crisis, stress and pressure calmly and with a level head. It also helps to plan ahead for outcomes you can easily predict; that way you’re not caught unaware and you lessen your chances of going on panic mode.

Be open-minded and flexible. 

Some of us can be micromanaging control freaks! If you are one, then surely you know the feeling of having your inner balance thrown off when things don’t go your way. If you give your child maths lessons so that he gets an A+ in the test, then he comes home with an A-minus, it’s not the end of the world. Don’t plan your travel itinerary to the letter because you might get crushed when the museum you planned to visit happens to be closed that day. Learn to look past the disappointments and focus on the good things. Learning to adapt to situations keeps you calm and, as a result, helps you achieve spiritual development.

Practice tolerance. 

In order to be at peace with yourself and with the world, you need to accept that people are different. There are cultures, religions, norms, political views and social practices that may seem alien to you, but if you exercise tolerance and respect for others, you will easily achieve spiritual development. Remove all prejudice and hatred from your heart. You will become a much better person without being weighed down by “preconceived garbage” in your heart and mind. Live and let live; with this maxim, attaining inner balance should be a cinch.

Achieving internal harmony need not require a trip to a monastery in some far flung nation. The truth is, the process starts and ends within you. So, rather than literally crossing mountains to find your enlightenment, aim to move mountains within by removing all barriers to your spiritual growth and development.

Recovering our True Self: The Journey Out of Our Negative States

Down through the centuries, spiritual teachers of all traditions have differentiated between our mundane, invented personality so filled with stress, and our true identity characterized by serenity, constancy, and wisdom.  They urge us to discover our inner depths and that vaster Self which enables right action in the world. Everyone of us is meant to live with joy and compassionate outreach to the people around us. We are designed to be masters of our selves, capable of overcoming all the difficulties of life. This is our birthright, but in order to experience it, we must recognize how far we are from living in this manner, why this is so, and what efforts we must make to live in such a way. This new awareness and these efforts are the process that leads us out of our negative emotional habits in order to enter into the depths of our spiritual nature.

positive negative patternTo recover from our ingrained habits and our subconscious imitations of parents and peers is truly spiritual warfare.  It is the narrow way that few want to travel as it requires going against the grain of our own behavior.  It is making the hard choices rather than taking the easy way as we always have.  This process takes place in the trenches of our most ordinary interactions with the world.  Authentic spiritual development takes place in that moment of irritation, that moment of unkindness, that moment of selfishness that we encounter the heat of the battle.  This inner battle determines who we are and how we live this life during our brief journey through time.

Here then are some specific methods for recovering from those toxic habits:

The first and most fundamental effort is the objective study of ourselves. Why? Because nothing real can take place until we know what we are dealing with. We cannot take for granted that we know how or why we function the way we do. If you want to operate a computer, you have to learn the software. Human beings are complex software indeed and are rarely user friendly. So tryobserving yourself from a completely neutral standpoint. Do not judge what you see. Just see it. Observe your reactions, your attitudes, your moods and the many aspects of yourself that take charge from moment to moment. If you do this with sincerity and courage, not justifying every action and passing thought, you will begin to see yourself more objectively and initiate the awareness of the Observing Self who will be the key to your recovery.

This simple effort begins the process of creating a space within you that is not completely hypnotized by external events. Though you still react to external circumstances through ingrained habit, there is now this sliver of your Self that is not pulled out of you. A new space of inner freedom is being created along with a new sense of a deeper identity than the surface personality.

Another critical aspect of this observation is the study of our negative states. You will be amazed at how much of our time is spent under the dominance of these dark moods and thoughts. You will catch yourself grumbling about other people, feeling dejected over this or that event, complaining about the weather, resenting something somebody said. Nothing healthy can grow under the constant downpour of this acid rain within you. Eventually, you will discover that you can free yourself from such unpleasant behavior and states of mind. Step one is to turn off the leaking faucet: stop expressing negative emotions.

This effort is the beginning of separating yourself from them. You don’t have to accept living in those dark states. You are not them. They are bad habits acquired over a lifetime. If you want healing and joy in your life, you must stop the momentum of negativity. One of the important things to observe about negative states is how much energy they take away from us. If you are aware of yourself before and after a moment of rage, you will see very clearly how much energy has been lost in that brief moment. We only have so much energy available to us each day, and we can use it to be healed and renewed, or we can squander it thoughtlessly.

So notice your thoughts before they plant themselves in your feelings and eventually manifest in your actions. Anger at a colleague or spouse can be caught before it has caused internal and external damage. In that more rational, detached place before the feeling has caught you by the throat, you can notice why you are angry. What is it in you that is reacting that way? What is it in your colleague that has caused his or her behavior which is so disturbing? Anger can then turn into compassion, or at least into a new insight about yourself or another.

After self-observation and separation from negative states comes the next all-important practice: becoming present to the moment. Experience the moment as it is, for what it is. Becoming present grounds you in reality here and now and takes you out of the tempests of imagination and inner talking that fill the mind with so much noise. Become present not only to your surroundings, but to your body. Relax the tensions that you haven’t even noticed before: In the shoulders, in the jaws, in the stomach. Begin to experience the revitalizing peace of being alive in this moment. Those of you familiar with meditation know how helpful it is to regulate one’s breathing in order to center oneself. Just breathing in and out slowly to ease the inner tensions is a powerful tool for nourishing your spirit in the moment. Learn to sit quietly for awhile. This is no luxury or idle behavior. We are so wracked with stress and worry that we cannot recover enough to get back in touch with ourselves until we are released from the grip of our anxieties. We rob ourselves of the very joy of living when we let ourselves fall into endless worry and nervous tension. Take time to let go of all that.

This daily effort teaches us to stop or at least to step back from the constant flow of thoughts that creates reality for us. This means that most of our worrying and anxious considerations fall by the wayside and we are able to rise above the clouds of our immediate concerns to the larger picture of our existence as a whole. Sometimes, however, the flood of thoughts refuses to slow no matter what we do. Our nerves are so frayed that we cannot achieve the simple peace of looking out the window and enjoying the view without anything coming to mind. That’s when you might employ the stop exercise. In the midst of a thought or daydream, tell yourself to stop and abruptly cut short what is going on in your mind. Then relax your body and look around you, just seeing what is there. Take a vacation from the inner turmoil.

So our daily practice for recovering from a life polluted with negative emotional habits includes: objective observation of our selves, separation from negative states, quieting the mind, and becoming present to the moment. You will notice how these practices begin to take us out of our usual nervous tension and keep us from mindlessly responding to everything around us by turning a portion of our attention inward and by expanding our perspective in the moment.  We then become more than our self-centered, habitual mass of reactions.

If you apply these techniques regularly, you will soon find yourself living more frequently in that space of peace, of centeredness, of recovery from being victims of automatic reactions. Then you will find that you become capable of a serenity and acceptance of what is, of a surrender of selfishness that empowers you to help others as well as yourself.

Such a journey of emotional and psychological recovery offers us a new spiritual empowerment which enables us to accept life as it comes, even with all its complications and the capacity to act rightly in any given situation. This developing inner power creates a free human being who is no longer entangled in his or her selfishness and constant stream of fears and desires. Such a person can journey through life in peace, with wisdom and compassion. Such a person makes the world a better place.

How to recognise negative energy

Many of us know the harmful effect of negativity. Napolean Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich says; “There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it’s positive or negative.”

negative energyIt is probably easier to be negative than positive. It is easy to slide into a blaming culture, the poor little old me mindset. We all know the importance of being positive and usually more effort is needed to a maintain positivity as it is easy to slide into negativity.

However, you can avoid negativity and disallow it to ruin your life by recognising them. Negative energy in our life can be ourselves and the people around us.

Personal negativity could come in the form of suspicion, mistrust and self doubt. Very often many of us allow negativity to invade our thoughts, for example, doubting the possibility that things are going smoothly, believing that there is a catch somewhere, always wary about being taken for a ride and being jealous of another person’s achievements. As we are the master of our own destiny and our thoughts can make or break us, such negativity will hinder our progress and even destroy something that is going well.

Negativity energy could also come from people could be our colleagues, our friends and family. When you are around people who say things to cast doubts in your mind, complained about almost everything and whatever other people are doing, it can have a negative effect on your emotions and behaviour. These people live in fear and worry. They can’t control their emotions and they are frequently angry. Being around negative people can drain your energy. Their negativity can lead you to making wrong judgement and decisions.

Sometimes, it may not be possible to stay away from negative people especially if they are family members. However, it is possible to walk away from a negative conversation. Stay away from people who make you doubt yourself or your progress

You know you are becoming a negative person when your venture start failing and your progress get stifled. You will notice that positive people stay away from you and you are surrounded by people who are constantly negative. Eventually, you will become an angry and depressed person.

Remember, nothing gets solved being negative and it will only make worsened our life. Recognise the negative energy, stay away from it and make a conscious effort to be positive.

“Whenever a negative thought concerning your personal power comes to mind, deliberately voice a positive thought to cancel it out.” – Norman Vincent Peale

Letting Go Of Your Past

A World of Inspiration and a Little Extra!

Sometimes we spend a chunk of our lives looking back on what was. We are stuck remembering and holding onto something that is no more. We reflect on old issues, remembering things that have happened and moments that have passed. Why do we do this; why is it so important to us that it, in a way, consumes us? What benefit is there from spending so much time reflecting and remembering? Sometimes it seems like our mind wanders there on its own, without our consent. We could be busy, occupied with something else, and all of a sudden we are thinking of our past and once again drawn into a moment that is gone. Why do we do this? Because we haven’t let go of what was, and because we do not fully understand it.

Let-Your-PastWe hold onto moments that have affected us, moments that were hard for us or…

The Essence of Spirituality

Spirituality, we can say, is the ability to cultivate one part of the man’s nature; his spirit, through meditation, through internalization, by meeting with himself. This experience somehow implies a certain detachment from the dimension of the material and body.

The human being in its depth has the ability to grasp what lies beyond appearances, beyond what is seen and listened, the thought, the feeling. He apprehends the other side of things. They are not just things. They could represent symbols and metaphors of another reality beyond that, a sign from what they were, what they remind, an underlying meaning.

Human beings can perceive values and meanings, not just facts and events. What really matters is not the things that happen to us, but what they mean for our lives and the experiences they provide us. Things then start to have another meaning: remind us of what we have experienced and feed our inner selves. It is not without reason that some people surround themselves with objects that bring to them good memories. Those objects are no longer objects. They are stories, they speak, remember, they are meaningful to the heart.

Perceiving things in this way, the depth of the world, of others and his own depth is spirituality. Spirituality is the moment of consciousness by which we grasp the meaning and value of things. Furthermore, it is that state of consciousness through which we see the whole and ourselves as part and parcel of that whole. The uniqueness of human beings is to experience their own depth. Listening to themselves, they realize that it is from their heart, that feelings like compassion, love, the identification with others as one, emerge. They realize a divine presence that is always with us, always inside us.

Accept this energy belongs to our experience of life, hear it, and integrate it into your lives. It is spirituality in its basic essence. This energy is present in every person and in all stages of life. The depth represents to us the human spirit, feeling it, is what we call spirituality.

This experience has an effect of irradiation of serenity, of deep peace and fearlessness. We can feel loved, accepted and we realize that we are never alone. Spirituality is a way of life, a basic attitude to be lived at all times and under all circumstances. Even within the daily dealings of home, work, even when driving a car, or talking to our friends, or living in intimacy with the loved ones. The person that accepts their own spiritual depth in his everyday life can have more peace, will radiates vitality and enthusiasm, because they know that they carry within themself something bigger. They belong to something wider, as spiritual awareness is within their presence.

This spirituality, in modern life is sometimes so forgotten, though is necessary condition for an integrated and simple life. It can be even a way to understand the cause of our fears and complexes, like those that are more difficult to be understood by many; the transition is one of them.

For a spiritual person transition is a natural process of life, it not a beginning nor end, but transformation of spiritual heart, the next step.
