This report is about how you can heal your mind and body by being aware of the latent energies in your aura and making the best, most spiritual use of them. Your aura is a field of energy that permeates and surrounds your physical body.  It has seven special energy centers within it called chakras. Chakras are vortexes of energy, and they are the places in your aura where divine consciousness can come in and manifest in your physical body, especially if you are receptive to it and use your willpower to allow it to enter.

Dear Friend,

     This report is about how you can heal your mind and body by being aware of the latent energies in your aura and making the best, most spiritual use of them. Your aura is a field of energy that permeates and surrounds your physical body. It has seven special energy centers within it called chakras. Chakras are vortexes of energy, and they are the places in your aura where divine consciousness can come in and manifest in your physical body, especially if you are receptive to it and use your willpower to allow it to enter.

     Your  aura  also  has  three  channels  where  the  divine  energy  flows  within  your  aura,  and  in  yoga,  these  are  called  the  ida,  pingala  and  sushumna.  The  ida  carries  the  life  energy  in  the  left  side  of  your  body.  The  pingala  carries  it  in  the  right  side  of  your  body.  The  sushumna,  which  is  the  most  important,  carries  it  in  the  middle  of  your  spiritual  column.

     The chakras are the places where the ida, pingala, and sushumna meet together. There is so much energy in these places that the energy whorls around as divine creative potential waiting as an ever-present resource to be manifested into physical form, so that we can bring healing life-force into our daily lives.

     To  draw  upon  this  infinite  source  of  energy,  we  can  use  meditation,  prayer,  or  affirmations.  In  this  way,  we  transcend  our  everyday  consciousness  and  become  receptive  to  the  healing  power  within  us.  There  are  specific  affirmations  that  can  be  used  to  direct  the  healing  force  to  particular  areas  of  the  body.  These  are  contained  in  Louise  Hay’s  book  “Heal  Your  Body”.  Often  these  affirmations  are  sufficient  to  address  a  particular  condition,  but  sometimes  a  more  specific  focus  is  needed  to  get  the  energy  to  come  through.  That  is  because  we  may  have  subconscious  blocks  to  allowing  the  affirmation  to  work,  and  these  have  to  be  identified  and  dissolved.  The  blocks  may  be  present  because  we  have  grown  up  in  a  culture  that  asserts  mind-body  duality,  rather  than  mind-body  unity.  There  may  also  be  blocks  because  of  individual  karma  from  the  past  or  individual  lack  of  recognition  of  future  possibilities.  This  is  where  astrology  comes  in    to  identify  any  blocks  you  may  have  and  to  give  you  guidance  as  to  how  to  dissolve  them,  so  that  you  can  become  one  with  the  Source  and  fulfill  your  divine  purpose.

     Louise Hay’s book also links the physical conditions and affirmations with particular vertebrae in the spine. This is helpful because the sushumna is located in the middle of your spinal column, and using the most specific affirmation possible should bring the healing light to the part that needs healing. However, if there is a blockage at the unconscious level, it will manifest on the physical level in the form of a blockage in the energy of the physical spine. The tension from this will be observable, as one or more bones in the spine will be out of alignment and there will be various symptoms in the surrounding muscles, organs, or other parts of the body. This report then, is designed to give you insight into the nature of any such blockages that you may be likely to have as an individual. The report also suggests ways of dissolving them and getting your own healing energy flowing. It will still depend on your own willpower whether you choose to use these new insights and how, in order to better your own health.

     This  report  neither  diagnoses  nor  prescribes,  but  works  on  the  subtler  level  of  the  astral  aura,  as  described  by  astrology,  to  understand  and  potentially  re-direct  the  energies  before  they  manifest  on  the  physical  level,  so  that  you  may  be  in  tune  with  the  higher,  spiritual  purpose  for  which  the  energies  are  intended  rather  than  have  them  manifest  as  any  lack  of  vitality  or  health.

     This report is dedicated to my chiropractor, Dr. John Bjarnason of Toronto, who has greatly assisted me in combining my astral knowledge of my aura with its unblocked, physical manifestation, so that I have been able to enjoy better health
