Aura Meditation Techniques
Article about Aura Meditation Techniques by Craig Hamilton-Parker. Extract from my book Psychic School: now available through Amazon.
Although a medium experiences the same inner states as in traditional meditation, our remit and methodology are slightly different. We recognize that meditation is a tool for self-realization yet we also know it can be used as a way to develop mediumship. As I have explained, the seeking of psychic powers for their own sake is a wicked, egotistic path that eventually brings ruin to those mediums who follow it.
In spite of the few who mistake God’s power for personal power, most mediums have integrity and are sincere in their work. So long as you embark on this journey in a spirit of modesty and compassion and maintain this throughout your work you will not stumble.
Craig shows how to open and close the Aura
The Aura Meditation Techniques used for the development of mediumship has many similarities to kundalini yoga but without the severe aestheticism or complicated postures.
As in kundalini yoga, we awaken the energy at the base of the spine and take it to the top of the head. To do this we draw upon the power of the aura and its energy centers called the chakras, which I will now describe before explaining psychic meditation in detail.
What is the Aura?
The aura is the energy field of the life force and appears to mediums and those with clairvoyant vision as a fibrous light that surrounds living things. This ethereal light emanation also surrounds us and extends from two to three feet in all directions from the body.
It is not to be confused with the lights seen by people suffering from migraine or epilepsy, cell debris in the eyes (sometimes called floaters), the bright spots of light caused when the eyes are rubbed, or the after-images caused by retinal fatigue.
Sensing the Aura
Many people can sense the aura and some can see it. Have you ever stood close to a stranger and “felt” their personality—something we sometimes call the “human atmosphere”? For example, you may have visited the home of a married couple and inadvertently interrupted an argument. They may greet you with sweet smiles and pretend nothing has happened but behind this façade, you can feel pressure, like the moment before a thunderstorm. You are sensing the emotions from their auras—their projected personalities—and this is why you know that something is wrong despite their pretense.
Experiences of the Aura
Perhaps at some time you have also experienced psychic sight and have seen the aura, but have been too embarrassed to talk about if for fear of being ridiculed by non-believers. Trust what you sense and see and stand by what you know to be true, for this is a natural phenomenon. Fortunately many more people today are having the courage to talk about their spiritual experiences, which are proving to be more commonplace than one would have expected.
When your clairvoyant vision becomes highly developed you will notice that every human being is surrounded by auric light. The aura is brightest around the head, and this may account for why painters of Christian iconography depicted aureoles, or halos, around the heads of saints. Sometimes you may see it as a luminous cloud, like the shimmering of heat from a hot street.
Seeing the Aura after the meditation
You will see that it is denser close to the body and becoming more tenuous and indistinct toward the peripherals. As your celestial vision sharpens you will also see the fibrous form of the aura as a dense web of fine cotton-like threads of light radiating from the body and most easily observed around the fingertips.
You will note also that the aura is filled with energy and movement and that the quality of the aura changes with the mood and inner activity of the person being observed.
