Type of Spiritual Experience


Healers see clouds when they examine the ‘aura’ of a person.   The classificarion of type of experience is not meant to be derogatory - the energy from a person is converted to an image and the composer adds to it to help with diagnostics.  There may be some inter composer communication to provide this extra ability

A description of the experience

Barbara Brennan – Hands of Light

The second auric body, or next finer after the etheric body, is generally called the emotional body and is associated with feelings.

It roughly follows the outline of the physical body.  Its structure is much more fluid than the etheric and does not duplicate the physical body.  Rather it appears to be coloured clouds of fine substance in continual fluid motion.  It extends one to three inches from the body.

This body interpenetrates the denser bodies that it surrounds.  Its colours vary from brilliant clear hues to dark muddy ones, depending on the clarity or confusion of the feeling or energy that produces them.  Clear and highly energised feelings such as love, excitement, joy or anger are bright and clear; those feelings that are confused are dark and muddy.  All these feelings become energised through personal interaction … the colours separate out into their primary hue and brighten.

……In general, the body does appear to be blobs of colour moving within the matrix of the etheric field and also extending beyond it a bit.  At times a person may throw off colour blobs of energy into the air around him.  This is especially observable when someone is releasing feelings in a therapy session.
