Episode: Childhood Food Grows Up
The Aura is an electromagnetic energy field that surrounds us. I used
to laugh at that idea. How could anybody believe something so
ridiculous? Simple! Using the correct technique the aura is easily
visible. I urge you to try this one. It will only take five minutes but
could very well change your life by opening you up to a whole new
Find a partner who wants to try this with you. Only one of you will
be able to feel the aura at a time so take turns. While doing this
make sure you can see a clock or watch with a second hand. Assuming
you are the one going to try it first here’s what to do. The pictures
correspond to the steps.
Join your hands in a praying position at chest height.
Have your partner place their hands over yours so as to keep your
hands together. For a period of at least one minute but not more than
90 seconds try to pull your hands apart while your partner applies
pressure to stop you. Make sure to put effort into pulling your hands
apart. This will hurt your arms but it’s immediately worth it.
When the time us up have your partner completely remove their hands
from yours and step back from you. Move your hands to just above
waist height and hold them parallel six to nine inches apart. Hold
What you will feel
You will feel like you are holding magnets in the palms of your hands
and that they are repelling each other. Ever so gently, moving just a
fraction of an inch at a time, move your hands closer together and
then further apart. Don’t let them get any closer than two inches.
While moving them together try to detect the point of strongest
pressure where your hands are repelling each other. Stop the movement
at this point and then gently move your hands further apart and then
back to this point. The pressure will increase as you ‘collect’ the
energy with your hands. This point of maximum pressure marks one
layer of the aura.
Now move your hands to just over hip distance apart. Let the energy
build up between your hands so you can feel it again. Now gently
bring your hands closer again remembering to keep them parallel. You
will feel another layer of the aura at a distance from between 24
inches to 14 inches. The distance varies from person to person. Once
you detect this point collect the energy again by gently moving your
hands further apart and then back to that point.
If you have difficulty
The most important step is where you try to pull your hands apart
while your partner stops you. This gets the blood and energy flowing
down your arms. To increase the flow push apart with your fingers as
well as your hands. If it doesn’t hurt you are not doing it hard
enough. If you cannot feel it let your partner take a turn. When they
feel it they can help describe to you how to feel it more easily.
How to improve your new ability
After resting for a while stand up and hold your hands as in step 3
above. Just allow the energy to build up and you will begin to feel
it within one minute. You’ll be glad to know that you never need to
doe steps 1 and 2 again. Repeat this the next day. You will now
always be able to feel the aura by just holding your hands parallel
and letting the energy build up. It’s that simple.
