Aura & the Auric Field
The whole aura can be measured as an Energy Field about 1 meter surrounding a human. Let us call this your personal space :-D.
It is made up of (by the definition I use in the YM Method) the 5 bodies. (See also Bodies).
An Aura can be whole, healthy and colourful, light-filled and beautiful. It can also have holes, be cluttered, contaminated, heavy and imbalanced. Our Aura is composed of our Subtle Energy Bodies, which in turn affect and are affected by our Physical Body primarily through the Chakra system. Therefore overall well-ness is a result of constant and dynamic communication of multiple layers, dimensions and characteristics of being (diet, lifestyle, habits, thoughts…the list goes on).
