In parapsychology and spiritual practice, an aura is a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object like the halo or aureola in religious art. The depiction of such an aura often connotes a person of particular power or holiness. It is said that all objects and all living things manifest such an aura. Often it is held to be perceptible, whether spontaneously or with practice: such perception is at times linked with the third eye of Indian spirituality. Various writers associate various personality traits with the colors of different layers of the aura. It has also been described as a map of the thoughts and feelings surrounding a person.
That, according to wiki, is what the aura is. For me, a more simple explanation is “the aura is the spiritual energy you radiate which influences you and those around you.
When I was a little puppy, the world was simple. There was you, your school, club, family and neighbors and if you where lucky enough holidays. These where the places you had aura related influence and here your friends were found. Relations where forged in your immediate surroundings often not reaching beyond your own town or country and if vacations where abroad they could be forged in that small area or that camping site in Cumbria or Antalya.
Oh my, did the times change. Nowadays we travel the world and surf the net and it is the last that opened up the Global Aura Network (mind you, this term did not exist before I wrote this blog, no use googling it)
I believe that people radiate their personal energy to others in all what tey do and energy, as you might know, can travel in many ways. Therefor it is my believe that when we comment on a blog, talk to people on Facebook or Skype etc or in other ways directly interact with each other our energy is reaching them through the means of cable and broadband ethernet, yes… I do not joke here. After all, fiberglass, copper and those materials are perfect transporters of energy and there is no energy stronger than that of your own. I believe that this is what makes real friendships over the internet possible, friendships with people you never have seen or never would have met if it wasn’t for the internet.
We can make use of this global network, we can do good with it because it is also my firm believe that this energy is not limited to the person you address. Did you know that the reach of your aura can be several miles wide, all our auras are in some way overlapping (thus creating the G.A.N) and our modern world has opened up ways for us to use this energy simply by making friends, being loyal, kind and positive in all we do on the interwebs. The more we send our good aura into the world the bigger the impact. This is not a short term thing and change will not be today but if we stand fast in how we treat our fellow man and the more we write about the good and wonderful things in our lives we might be able to change something for our children and their children.
Who knows, maybe when the Vulcans come we don’t need them anymore.
