Past, Present, Future
Is time linear? To suggest we can only go in one direction with our minds is to say that time and space are not relative. When you talk to someone in another time zone, does your mind transcend linear time? If you are 3 hours ahead of someone on the phone, is your mind time traveling through your voice? Yes. There are 9 dimensions our mind can travel within and without, and it happens through bending time, light and space.
What is one way we can time travel? Rei-Ki. Rei… what? Reiki, a Japanese hands-on healing art which utilizes the body’s aura and chakras.
- Chakras are energetic wheels of energy that connect mind and body. We have 7, each pertaining to
- A color of the rainbow
- A different set of nerves and organs
- A different element
- Aura is an energy field emanating from the physical and is defined by being;
- Color changing
- Various layers
Our aura surrounds us in a 3 feet diameter, is generated by the spinning of our chakras and has 7 layers just as there are 7 major chakras. Each Aura is unique to each individual.
The 7 Layers of the Aura
The Aura reflects our health and can change colors throughout our lifetime. Someone who practices Reiki works with the subtle energies of the auric body. We can use the physical body and auric bodies to help heal in the present moment. The 7 layers of the aura are as follows:
- Etheric layer — connected to the base chakra, closest to the body and represented by a grey/violet mist/ether. Roughly 2-4 inches away from the physical body
- Emotional layer — connected to the sacral chakra, holds all our emotions and just outside the etheric layer. Roughly 1-3 inches away from the physical body
- Mental layer — connected to the solar plexus chakra and contains all mental processes. We are what we eat and our gut health can affect our mental health. Roughly 3-8 inches away from the physical body
- Astral layer — bridge between 3D and higher dimensions. Connected with our heart chakra and is a rainbow color. Roughly 1 foot away from the physical body
- Etheric Template — connected to throat chakra, blueprint of physical body. Resembles the negative film of a photograph. Roughly 2 feet away from the physical body
- Celestial Causal Layer — connected with third eye and is where the path of enlightenment through connection to spirit begins. Roughly 2.5 feet away from the physical body
- Spiritual Layer — connected with crown chakra and can extend up to 3 feet away from the physical body
Aura Clearing Techniques
There are simple techniques for clearing our aura. One of my favorites is giving myself Reiki. By diving into our inner plane, we have amazing capacities for energetic clearing. We can also use symbols and Japanese kanji to send healing energy beyond linear time — to the past, present and future. When we heal ourselves of ancestral trauma, we heal all those that come before you and all those that come after you. I know because I have done it, and it is fucking beautiful.
