Everyone has an aura. Whether they see it or not, believe it or not, aura is as much a part of them as their blood and flesh.

What is an aura?
Aura is a subtle energy field that surrounds our physical body. It is like a rainbow that acts as a magnetic field, constantly picking up and responding to our emotions, thoughts, and external environment. In simpler terms, aura is the vibration that people feel when they are with you. You may have noticed that some people make you feel good and positive while you may have a bad feeling about some others. This has a lot to do with their aura.

Signs that you need to cleanse your aura
Often, our aura gets weak when we become susceptible to negative energies that harm us emotionally, mentally, physically, etc., creating an energetic build up. Here are a few symptoms that tell you that your aura is weak and needs to be cleansed-
 Feeling stressed, anxious, confused, frustrated, irritated or depressed
 Falling sick a little too often without any specific reason
 In a perpetual state of exhaustion, both mentally & physically
 Unable to sleep properly
 Feeling demotivated no matter what you do
 Feeling overwhelmed with life
 Experiencing ongoing mental chatter
 Feeling lethargic & negative for no reason

How to cleanse your aura?
Negative people, stressful situations, day-to-day drama, and other emotionally-charged events can pull down your energies and dirty the aura. It is important to cleanse this energetic build up and strengthen the aura again. The good part is that doing this is quite easy. With some simple do-it- yourself aura-cleansing tricks that can be practiced at home, you can regain your energy and spread good vibes.

Walk in the rain
This is the simplest and a very powerful purification element to rejuvenate your spirit and cleanse your aura. Step out when it is raining, gently close your eyes and experience the rainwater draining away all your toxic energy and negativity. Doing this barefoot is more beneficial as it help you ground your aura. Try doing this when the rain is gentle and not accompanied with thunderstorms.

Smudging is an ancient practice of cleansing your aura with the help of sacred herbs, resins, or wood such as sage, rosemary, lavender, frankincense or palo santo. Simply burn bundles of these and pass the smoke arising from it to every part of your body. While doing so, focus and hold your intention on purification of your aura.

Aura-cleansing bath

Taking a bath is known to be one of the easiest and earliest ways of cleansing your aura. No wonder you feel so great after stepping out of a shower. For an aura cleansing bath, add some Himalayan salts, sacred herbs, and essential oils like eucalyptus, lavender, frankincense, or orange to your bathtub. Dip yourself in it for at least ten minutes. As you do so, feel the aroma soaking in and visualize your worries and negativity washing away. Discard all the herbs, essential oils & salts after every use.

Sound cleansing
Sound cleansing is a technique to use the strokes of powerful music instruments to shake off the bad vibes and rejuvenate the aura. Vibrations released through instruments like a handheld chime, ceremonial drum, tuning forks, or a Tibetan singing bowl can be very effective here.

Soak in sunlight
Sunlight is nature’s own way of purifying your aura and soaring the spirits. Just 20 minutes under the Sun’s beautiful rays can make you feel very optimistic and nourished. Not to forget the infinite benefits that you reap by absorbing the essential Vitamin D from the Sun.

Walking barefoot outdoors, known as grounding or earthing is essential to experience life to its brim. By doing so, you engage in a process that purifies and revitalizes your aura.
Moreover, this practice offers natural immune-boosting benefits, enhances your mood, and fosters a profound connection to the earth, allowing its energy to flow through your feet and create a sense of being grounded.

Mantras & Affirmations
The power of mantras and positive affirmations have been known since centuries. Find a peaceful location and imagine being enveloped by a radiant, effervescent white light. With your eyes closed, begin reciting mantras and positive affirmations that resonate with you. Repeat these affirmations as many times as you wish until you sense their resonance vibrating throughout your body. Make it a daily practice to strengthen your energy field.
