9780007100965: Auras: What they are and how to read them

An essential guide to reading, understanding and healing the aura.

Auras are layers of energy surrounding the body. Auras – What they are and how to read them offers fascinating insight into seeing and interpreting the auras of all living things.

There is a growing understanding of the concept of energy in the natural world – Together science, metaphysics and mystics are now building up a picture of aura fields and colours.

Reading auras can determine physical and emotional strengths, diagnose illness and help us understand our connection with other living things. Looking at the properties and colours of our auric fields, Joseph Ostrom shows us how to read and interpret the aura to create harmony and balance within our lives.

The book includes sections on the health aura, the thought-plane aura, the elements present in the auric fields, the aura colours and their significance as well as answering questions such as:

what is an aura
• what does the aura look like
• how does the eye perceive the aura

Review:

Auras is a personal journey through the author's own experiences of the human aura. Starting at an early age he has perceived bands of coloured light surrounding everyone, in a way that others rarely can.

Along the way, Ostrom expands his theories of vision and the complex structure of human auras, which for him consist of seven layers of brightly glowing bands, with accompanying rays and spheres representing energy exchange with other beings. He recounts examples from his life and career of teaching himself to interpret the colour symbolism and auric patterns, enhancing his insight into other people's emotions, their health and even their futures. This has enabled him to practice as a "metaphysician", or healing practitioner, since "the emanations from the health aura reflect a person's physical health, fundamental motivations, and the workings of the present personality."

He distinguishes several auric bodies, each representing different aspects of the subject. The health auras--physical, etheric and vital--are innermost, followed by astral and lower mental layers, with higher mental and spiritual auras located above the head. In examining these auras for diagnosis, visual evidence must be supplemented by the metaphysician's "Inner Eye" and intuition.

Some exercises are included to help you train yourself to detect and read these auras to some degree. Readers may wish to develop such skills to help others with health problems or emotional trauma, or as a technique of self-development and self-affirmation. --Frank Pennycook
