What does it mean?
It is understood in science that everything that exists in the physical plane on a quantum physics level is vibration and emits an energetic frequency on a spectrum ranging from higher to lower vibrations. This can be anything from people, emotions, sounds, environments, food and even what you consume through your digital screens. Every space, object or energy that can not be seen by the naked eye, such as an emotion or thought also sends out it’s own frequency.
The bio-magnetic field known as an aura that emits from every human body acts like an antenna of a radio, picking up, processing and retaining information from your every day living. It is the instant sense of when you walk into a room and feel the energy may be a bit ‘off’, or you get a feeling when your with someone that they are upset without them having said anything. That is your aura picking up vibrational frequency and within milliseconds the mind is processing the information through thought, analysis and conclusion. The aura is an incredibly sensory intelligent part of who you are, it stores every vibration of your emotions, health and even the resilience threshold of how you navigate through life. However, it is also delicate and needs protection to ensure your physical, mental and emotional health stays in balance.
Why it's important?
Just as it's important to keep your room, your house and your car clean, it's important to keep your energy clean as well.
Each day as you come into contact with many people, especially if you live in a busy city, their auras also come into contact with your own. Anything that they are holding energetically, this could be stress, illness or anger, can influence your own mood and well-being and leave stagnant energy within your bio-magnetic field. This is why it is especially important to ensure you are energetically protected and to clear emotional residue that has been picked up through the day from others you have come into contact with that does not belong to you. If you live in a busy urban environment or spend a lot of time traveling, take a moment to reflect on how many hundreds of people (and their auras) you come in contact with in just a single day.
It is also important to consider that if the body is not nourished through sufficient nutrition and a balanced lifestyle, or you have encountered a lot of trauma and emotional distress, over time this can cause the auric field to become porous. Instead of acting like a shield from external energies it can cause them to leak into your own bio-magnetic field, so introducing lifestyle habits that support your health and being into your daily routine and being mindful of what environments you spend your time in, can help strengthen your physical and energetic body. With the over stimuli and sensory pressure from modern living and screen time alone, it is more important now more than ever to introduce a consistent energy cleansing ritual to your routine.
Just by scrolling through social media you are also picking up energy that is out of your control, so be mindful of who you follow and how that is effecting you own energy. By using various different healing and cleansing tools you can cleanse yourself, home, personal belongings and any new environments you may come into contact with. It is a simple but powerful addition to maintaining balanced health and well-being.
