Aura Analysis

Aura Analysis
By: Dr. R. Thiagarajan  

An aura, according to New Age metaphysics, is a colored outline, or 
set of contiguous outlines, allegedly emanating from the surface 
of an object. In the New Age, even the lowly amoeba has an aura, 
as does the mosquito and every lump of goat dung. The aura 
supposedly reflects a supernatural energy field or life force 
that permeates all things. Human auras allegedly emerge from 
the chakras. Under ordinary circumstances, auras are only visible 
to certain people with special psychic power. However, with a 
little bit of training, or with a special set of Aura Goggles 
with "pinacyanole bromide" filters (available at your local 
New Age Head Shop), anyone can see auras. You may also use 
Kirlian photography to capture auras on film. At least that is 
what New Age spiritualists believe.

According to Tantric philosophy and Yoga, a chakra is a points of 
energy in the astral body. There are seven primary chakras, which 
are associated with various parts of the body, emotions, desires, 
thoughts, powers, and health.* New Age gurus think chakras have 
colors and give rise to auras, which reveal one's spiritual and 
physical health, as well as one's karma. The alleged energy of 
the chakras is not scientifically measurable, however, and is at 
best a metaphysical chimera and at worst an anatomical falsehood.

Astral body
The astral body is one of seven bodies each of us has, according 
to Madame Blavatsky. The astral body is the seat of feeling and 
desire and has an aura. How the physical body and the other alleged 
bodies interact is unknown, but it is said to be by some sort of 
occult force. The astral body is said to be capable of leaving the 
other bodies for an out-of-body experience known as astral projection.

Theory of Chakras
Chakra doctrine postulates seven charkas. These are called the 
Muladhara or "Root Support" at the base of the spine with four 
"petals", the Swadhishthana or "Own Abode" at the root of the 
genitals with six, the Manipura or "Fullness of Jewels" at the level 
of the navel with ten "petals", the Anahata or "Unstruck Melody" at 
the heart-centre with twelve, the Vishuddha or "Complete Purity" at 
the throat with sixteen, and finally the Ajna or "Guru's Command" at 
the brow with two "petals". The Crown centre, the Sahasrara-Padma or 
"Thousand Petalled-Lotus", located at the very top of the head, is 
technically speaking not a chakra at all, but the summation of all the 

The chakras are strung along the central or Sushumna channel (usually 
located at the spine). In the lowest chakra, the Muladhara, at the base 
of the spine, there lies the kundalini-shakti, the latent 
consciousness-energy, the microcosm of the cosmic creative shakti. 
When this is aroused, it can be made to ascend the sushumna, either 
ac-tivating or dissolving (depending on the yogic tradition) each 
chakra in turn, until it reaches the highest or crown chakra, the 
Sahasrara, where dwells the Godhead or Supreme Shiva (Paramashiva). 
As the Kundalini-Shakti unites with Paramashiva, the original 
transcendent equilibrium is restored, and the yogi returns to the 
state of oneness with the Absolute.

The chakras are described as stations or centres of pure consciousness 
(chaitanya) and consciousness-power. They are focal points of 
meditation; iconographic structures within the occult or "subtle body". 
Apart from the Sahasrara, each chakra is described by means of a whole 
lot of symbolic associations or correspondences. Building upon the 
initial later Upanishads speculation, each chakra, as well as having a 
specific position in the physical body, element, mantra, and deity, 
also has a particular number of "petals", each associated with one of 
the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, a corresponding colour, shape, 
animal, plane of existence, sense-organ, mantric sound, and so on.

As is usually the case with intellectual esoteric systems, a lot of 
these correspondences are arbitrary, for example, smell and feet with 
Muladhara, taste and hand with Swadhishthana, sight and anus with 
Manipura, etc. These associations are all based on the Samkhyan 
sequence of tattwas and their attributes.

In addition to the seven major chakras arranged along the spine there 
are also chakras in the hands, feet, genitals, and so on. Also in 
addition to the seven major chakras, there are also a number of other 
chakras along the spine which are sometimes referred to. In his 
exhaustively detailed and definitive work on the chakras according to t
he traditional Indian understanding, Reference is also made in all 
Tantric texts to the nadis or channels of vital-force (prana). 
According to the traditional Tantric teachings, the seven chakras are 
strung like pearls or jewels along the brilliant thin thread of the 
sushumna nadi, which is the primary nadi in the body. On either side 
of the sushumna are the two main secondary nadis: the white moon-like 
ida on the left, containing descending vitality (apana), and the red 
sun-like pingala on the right, containing ascending vitality (prana in 
the narrow sense of the term). The tantric yogi aims to direct the 
subtle airs from these two primary side channels into the central 
sushumna nadi, and so activate the latent Kundalini energy. This then 
ascends through each of the chakras in turn, and when it reaches the 
top of the head, the yogi attains Liberation

The understanding of the chakras and kundalini in the West derives 
largely from Sir John Woodroffe's The Serpent Power, a very technical 
work, first published in 1919 under the psuedonym Arthur Avalon. The 
first (and still one of of the only) serious books on the chakras and 
Kundalini yoga to be published in the West, it is actually a translation 
of two sixteenth century Bengali texts and their commentaries, 
together with Woodroffe's own long and detailed introduction. 
Woodroffe's book - his own chapters cover Shakta metaphysics and 
cosmology, Patanjali Yoga, and Tantric practice, as well as the chakras 
themselves - is unfortunately very difficult for the beginner, but it 
served as the inspiration and chief reference text (usually without 
acknowledgment) for many Western occult-esoteric writers.

The Subtle Energy Body
Aura, Chakras, and the Rainbow
The Aura
The aura is the energy field which surrounds a physical object. The 
aura of a human is more complex than that of a rock or animal because 
of the spirit within humankind, which is made in the image of God. 
Sensitive people and small children are often able to see the auras and 
what is in them. Usually there are colors and these colors can change 
according to the mood of the person and the situation the person is in.

The aura reflects the total person because the spiritual aspect 
influences the mental/emotional state which impacts our physical reality 
of which the aura is the outermost part. 

Chakra Energy Vortexes 
The energy field of the human body has junction boxes in it, like the 
wiring in a house or the interstate system of roads which connect the 
United States. These junction boxes are called chakras which means 
spinning wheel. In the spiritually enlightened person, each chakra is 
a different color, corresponding to the colors in a rainbow. 

This diagram shows a person who has many colors in his/her aura. 
Although colors in the aura change, sometimes only one or two is 
predominant. Ideally, all the colors of the rainbow will move in and 
through a person's aura, showing a balance between the different energy 
systems and harmony between the different levels of consciousness. 
This diagram depicts a rainbow warrior, someone who has attuned his 
or her chakras and is keeping them attuned and cleansed so all the 
energies are balanced and harmonized.

There are 7 major chakras in our body. Each chakra is associated with 
an aspect of consciousness. The chakras begin at the base of our spine 
and then are located upwards, to the top of our head. These are 
illustrated by the colored circles running up the spine in the diagram. 
While there are other, lesser, vortices, they are not shown in this 
picture. In Angelic RayKey, you will learn how to sense the state of 
these chakras in a person or yourself, what to do to open them, and 
how to enhance the spin and balance of all energy points, large or 

The state of a person's health can be detected by Kirilian photography, 
dowsing, and other methods of measuring and recording the color and 
spin of the chakras and aura. When the chakras are small, out of 
alignment (making a crooked line running through them), or out of 
synchronization with each other, there is an imbalance which will be 
evident somewhere else for the individual. This may be a physical 
illness, a mental problem, a relationship which has ended or something 
of the kind or a combination of any of the above. The Angelic RayKey 
practitioner assists a person to become like the diagram, balanced, 
aligned and in a state of perfection.

In the Angelic RayKey classes (coming soon to a cyberspace near 
you--want to know when?) the aura and chakras are discussed as part of 
the attunement process. That's because these energy centers are 
important in our spiritual growth, and they provide insight to our 
conscious healing process.
