Yogic Living: Your Auric Shield

The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds your body. Everyone vibrates with auric energy. A strong aura attracts positivity and repels negativity, like a shield. It gives a strong sense of security and identity, and an uplifting presence. A weak aura can make you feel insecure and negativity can penetrate into the psyche and physical body. The aura communicates who you are and ‘where you’re at’ before any words are spoken.  

The Auric Body is the 7th of the 10 bodies, and Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is the only tradition that recognizes the aura as the 8th Chakra. Known as the Circumvent Force and the divine protective shield, the aura is strengthened by the practice of Kundalini Yoga.

“Those people who are humble, affectionate, serving, and who breathe the Divine Force into themselves, make their mind concentrate on the breath, and pray to the Universal Spirit by tuning in—not only does their own magnetic field/electric power get charged because of the life force, their circumvent force becomes so strong that it can keep away all the negative forces, and they can change the destiny of others.”
-Yogi Bhajan
