Today is International Aura Awareness Day, celebrated each year on the fourth Saturday of November.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, an aura can be defined as:
- a subtle sensory stimulus (as an aroma)
- a distinctive atmosphere surrounding a given source (for example, “the place had an aura of mystery”)
- a luminous radiation : nimbus
- a subjective sensation (as of lights) experienced before an attack of some disorders (as epilepsy or a migraine)
- an energy field that is held to emanate from a living being
International Aura Awareness Day relates mainly to the last definition above – that coloured radiant glow or energy field said to surround people or objects.
Some people claim they can see auras; some claim they can teach others to see auras; some say you can interact with your own aura; some even claim they can photograph auras. The rest of us, unfortunately, have to take it all with a grain of salt. No scientific evidence exists to support the supposed abilities of the aura-seeing clairvoyants, and the claims of aura-capturing photographic technologies are questionable to say the least.
However, if auras do exist (and who am I to claim otherwise), I wish everyone a day of peaceful soft-blue aural energy.
Peace out, brothers and sisters! 😉
