Everything within and even outside of our universe vibrates with energy. It has been accepted for centuries through many, many cultures, that the human body draws energy into itself from a universal energy field. The human energy field is the manifestation of this universal energy in and around the human body. Its outer boundary can be described as a luminous egg-shaped cocoon surrounding the physical body. This energy field is constantly moving, ebbing and flowing, expanding and contracting and changing in intensity. Throughout history, the knowledge of this universal energy present in all of nature and surrounding the human form as what we sometimes call the aura, has been recognised and illustrated by many traditions including the Indian spiritual tradition of prana; the Chinese energy chi; the Jewish Kabala reference to astral light and the Christian religious paintings indicating a field of light or halo surrounding Jesus and other religious figures.
In the world of spirituality and all things metaphysical, there are many translations, definitions and explanations for same or similar things. Sometimes it’s difficult to truly articulate the true meanings as we all perceive and translate differently according to our experiences, thus resulting in varying descriptions, names and topics to sift and sort through. Ultimately, our task is to seek our own truth and what resonates with us to discover what we truly believe or don’t align with. And as you spiritually evolve, revisit them and you’ll find that it has changed, just as you also have. All in all, do your own research and mostly just “Google it” to start seeking more in depth about these topics.
As part of the auric fields, the astral field is commonly referred to as the emotional field or the plane of existence that consists of the planetary heavens or spiritual realm. It also represents the soul independent from the body as in astral projections.
Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being. ~Healthline.com
The human body produces complex electrical activity in several different types of cells, including neurons, endocrine, and muscle cells – all called “excitable cells”. As all electricity does, this activity also creates a magnetic field. The tiny electrical impulses in our body and results into the formation of a magnetic field around our body, which is actually know as the AURA- electromagnetic field of the body. Since everything in this universe is made up of the same constituent particles electron, protons, neutrons etc. that means everything has an aura. ~Tabitarezaire.com
The term etheric is a derivative from the word ether, which has been considered a medium that permeates space, transmitting transverse waves of energy. When associated with the entirety of the auric field, it surrounds the whole body, hence why it’s a pivotal part of the human energy field.
Our energy points, energetic layers and subtle bodies create an interconnected field of energy around the physical body that is commonly known as the auric field. Each subtle body connects into the physical body via an energy point or chakra, which directs the energy into the physical body via the meridian system.
