Your Aura is the energetic force that surrounds your entire being. The purpose of the aura is to act as a protective screen to block out and repel the negative energies, thoughts, and feelings of others, and also to prevent leakage of your own energy. However, holes, known as auric tears, can form within the aura, weakening it, and thus making it susceptible to harm by invading outside energies. These tears have many causes, including stress, trauma, depression, abuse, and physical injuries or illnesses to name just a few.
The following stones can be used for auric health and protection:
Amber aligns the subtle bodies with the physical body. Releases negative energy.
Amethyst heals holes in the aura, cleanses it, draws in divine energy to protect the aura.
Apache Tear protects the aura and prevents it from absorbing negative energies from any source, but especially the negativity of other people.
Bloodstone cleanses the aura.
Carnelian repairs the aura.
Citrine cleanses and aligns the aura.
Jet protects against other’s negative thoughts.
Magnetite strengthens the aura.
Quartz cleanses, protects, and strengthens the aura. Seals auric tears.
Smoky Quartz grounds energy and removes negative energy from the aura.
Green Tourmaline heals auric tears.
Methods used to protect your Aura:
1. Slowly pass your chosen stone or crystal over the aura (the space around the entire body). An auric tear will feel cold and empty. The stone may start to feel differently, such as becoming cold or vibrating slightly. Once you’ve located a hole or tear, hold the stone over the area for several moments.
2. Hold your chosen stone or crystal over each chakra starting with the Root Chakra for a few moments. Doing so periodically will help to keep your chakras strong and healthy, which in turn will help to keep your aura healthy as well. If damage is sensed over a chakra (the same as with the aura), move the stone in a counter-clockwise motion over the chakra. This will release any negative energy that may be lingering there. Then move the stone in a clockwise pattern over the chakra. This will heal the chakra and seal it.
3. The easiest way to use stones for protection of any kind (physical, emotional, auric, etc.) is to carry your chosen protection stone in a pocket, or a stone talisman may be carried for protection, or your favorite aura protection stone jewelry can be worn.
