Enhancing Your Aura
by Cynthia Sue Larson
strong, centered aura can bring many magical experiences into your life. I had
one such experience a few years ago.
When my friend who was working with the Navajo tribe invited me to come see
some sacred petroglyphs carved in ancient rock walls near Albuquerque, New
Mexico, I eagerly agreed. My friend showed me how to place both of my hands in
hand print carvings to most fully feel the energy from them. The energy of this
sacred place was strong, and she explained how it was important to always have
another person along when feeling the energy of these petroglyphs, since there
was risk of literally being blown away by the energy of such a sacred space.
Standing near the walls, I could indeed feel the power of the place.
When I touched the two hand print petroglyphs carved onto a vertical face of
stone, I felt nothing different. Thoughts from an earlier discussion wandered
through my mind, and I heard an airplane fly overhead. I then thought, "I must
let go of all these distractions." The instant I let go, the wind picked up and
I felt subtle energy surging around me. I saw a purplish circle of energy in
front of me, and felt an unmistakable sense of calm. I savored these sensations
for several minutes, then moved away to give my friend some private time with
As I rested quietly on a rock. I offered some mineral spring water I had
brought from California to the rocks, some to the sun-parched soil, and some to
small leafy plants growing at my feet ... and then I drank a swig. As I did
this, I silently thanked spirit for bringing me here, and felt my love for life
and spirit and all that is. I then asked spirit, "Am I truly welcome on American
Indian land? Am I an uninvited outsider, or a welcome part of all this beauty?"
I exhaled my doubt, and breathed in love and compassion. Just then, two shining
eyes appeared in the brush in front of me, and a five-foot-long diamondback
rattlesnake smoothly approached me. The snake looked directly at me as it closed
the distance between us with each swish of its sinewy body. My friend had a
great fear of snakes, but I sensed that this snake was approaching me with
purpose and curiosity about my auric field of love. As the giant rattler came
within six feet of me, I broke the silence and calmly asked my friend, "Excuse
me, but do you know what kind of snake this is?" As I spoke these words, the
My friend took one slow step back from the petroglyphs and said, "That is a
dangerous snake. A very dangerous snake. You should pick up your things and
slowly move away." We moved about twenty feet away, and the rattlesnake turned
from us and began winding away toward some shady rocks. I felt the snake's
message to me was: "We are with you. We are strong. We treat you with respect .
. . as you treat us."
When you learn to enhance your aura, you'll get speedy answers to your
questions, and achieve safety even in dangerous situations. You may even find
that your life will become much more magical, enchanted, and divine.
Top Ten Ways to Enhance Your Aura
By following these simple ten steps to good auric health, you can
significantly improve your chances of attracting what you really love to your
life! The first five steps are part of a daily auric energy practice, and the
last five are an ongoing, long-term energy practice, which are part of the life
of anyone who wishes to become healthier.
1. Ground — Clear out all unessential energy from your aura by
visualizing a grounding cord from the base of your spine to the center of the
earth. Let go of all your worries and fears about the future and frustrations
with the past. When you have let go of all that, you can feel what is real,
2. Assess Your Energy Centers — Once you've grounded, chances are good
that your first chakra is open and all negative energy is swirling away. Look at
your next chakra up, the second chakra, and feel how your body feels there. If
you are tense, allow those tensions to drop down to the root chakra and drop
away. Continue up all seven chakras, feeling how your body feels and letting go
of tensions as you find them.
3. Meditate — Whether you practice a traditional style of meditation
or simply take regular breaks from the pressures of your daily routine, all such
relaxation provides you with much needed stress relief that gives your aura a
chance to recharge itself.
4. Energize — Visualize your energy field growing and expanding with
love. Remember all the people, places, and things you have loved the most and
who love you the most, and bask in the radiant light of that love!
5. Seal Your Aura — Since you don't want to lose your new-found sense
of energy body balance and power, you can now benefit from visualizing that your
energy is your own and not to be taken by others. While sitting clown, cross
your ankles and gently press your fingertips together, reinforcing your
visualization that your energy is your own.
6. Rest — Get enough sleep every day. A general rule of thumb is that
if you awaken naturally of your own accord (without need of alarm clock or
someone else awakening you) and feel refreshed and well rested, you've gotten
7. Eat a Balanced, Nutritious Diet — Eat plenty of fresh fruits,
vegetables, and grains.
8. Naturalize Yourself — Spend time (as much as possible) outdoors in
natural settings. Breathe fresh air; feel the earth beneath your feet; wriggle
your toes joyously in grass, sand, and water! Children who often play outdoors
usually have very bright auras, and their playful attitude helps keep them young
and healthy. The earth has tremendous restorative energy that she shares
9. Exercise Your Physical Body — Do whatever regular exercises you
feel comfortable with that help you maintain and develop your strength,
flexibility, and cardiovascular systems.
10. Watch and Minimize Your Drug Consumption — Minimize drugs
(alcohol, stimulants, psychedelics), with exception of those recommended by your
These ten steps are easy to remember in sequence, because the first letter in
each of them taken together spells out a reminder message, "GAMES RENEW."
Remember to be playful as you "work" to enhance your aura! You can gain the most
advantage from these ten steps when you make them an integral part of your life.

surprising. After all, what's good for your physical body is also good for your
