About energy fields and coloured glows

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.

If you had an aura, what colour do you think it would be?

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! 😉
