Positive spiritual energy could be defined as hopeful strength from the soul. This is power for chemical and physical resources in maintaining joyful spiritual connections to the universe. The energy applies to all religions and spiritual beliefs. It can apply to home, personal, psychological, and health related environments. Or it could be the energy directed to the entire world or universe.
AURAS AND HEALING
Auras are the energetic filed surrounding the body of a living creature. The atmospheric colors of the aura indicate different moods or a reflection of the state of your being.Ancient art indicates a knowledge of human auras. Halos were commonly put around the heads of spiritual and people. The concept was first noted in the West by Charles Webster Leadbeater.
He incorporated the Hindu and Buddhist ideas of Chakras. He added his own theories of color auras that relate to different parts of the body. Later Edgar Cayce used some of the thoughts. A camera to record auras was first developed in the 1970s by Guy Coggins. Auras were explored or very much until the New Age movement developed in the 1980’s.
The meaning of the different colors is detailed and depends on circumstances and interpretation. But here is a general guide.
Red shows strength, vitality, passion, and being energetic. It can also indicate anger, fear and egotism.
Orange is related to courage, ambition and being considerate of others. Orange is optimistic and enthusiastic.
Yellow show that someone is happy, friendly and fun.
Green shows peacefulness, compassion and a healing nature. It can also show jealousy. Hence, the term, green with envy.
Blue is sensitive, peacefulness and inner peace. Blue can also indicate moodiness.
Indigo means someone is a seeker with a lot of intuition.
Violet also shows a lot of intuition along with wisdom and spirituality. It is also related to creativity.
Pink is love and friendship.
Grey in an aura show a lack of energy and depression
Brown shows that you need to stay away, because this person is greedy, opinionated and only thinks about themselves.
Black would mean no energy and all. It would show someone was ill and possibly on their deathbed.
White shows that someone has perfect balance.
Some people are reported to be able to see auras around people. It has been suggested that those individuals have synesthesia. That is a condition where the stimulation of one sense leads to another sense being activated.
There are photos that record one’s aura. Someone puts their hand on top of a metal plate. The metal is attached to a machine that uses software to translate the information to a screen. The energy in the hand will show the auras for the entire body. This is because of the acupressure points in the hands.
An experienced and very intuitive healer may be able to interpret your aura for healing purposes. However, I would not think this a very good way to acquire positive spiritual knowledge. For one thing, the colors change constantly. And there seems to be so much variance of the meanings, it doesn’t seem accurate. If you already are seeing a Reiki expert, psychic or healer that you trust, they may see auras. Otherwise, I would not seek this out as a reliable measure of self-knowledge.
Having a positive mindset can be learned. Even the most negative person can retrain your brain. Most psychologists recommend practicing positive thinking techniques for mental health and a happier life.
Getting a new perspective on your situations can often bring about a more positive attitude. Try to think of what others are thinking instead of what you imagine. You can’t. Nobody knows what goes on in another’s brain. So, forget the story you have made up in your own mind. It may be false.
We have all seen the motivational messages that hang on walls. If you are a bitter person, they probably annoy you. You may think that someone is just trying to brainwash you by making you look at uplifting quotes or slogans. Maybe your brain needs a little scrubbing.
Try making your own message and leaving them in places that you frequently look. They don’t have to say, “Be Happy.” Write words that means something to you personally. You might write, “Love yourself,” “Respect Yourself,” “I Have Meaning,” or “I Am Important.” Or maybe just a single word that is a reminder to be compassionate. You can write, “Gratitude,” “Forgiveness,” “Believe,” or “Trust.”
You can self-brainwash yourself. You can’t really. If your self wants to change it will or it won’t. If it chooses to have a more positive outlook, that means it wants to. It just needs help to break old habits. Negative thinking patterns can become automatic and habitual. Maybe a bad experience or even a traumatic event caused your mind to expect the worse. It is sometime the brains way of defending itself to be prepared for the worst.
We all know that habits can be broken. We also all know that it can be really, difficult to change. But it is possible. Behavior is learned over time by repetitive action. You don’t even really have to want to. Just doing something differently will change the way your brain perceives the situation. Try taking a different route to work or school. Look at your surrounding as if you were visiting from another country. You may discover something you had missed. Or you may just briefly forget what was making you feel negative.
All of this may not be enough if you are suffering for clinical depression, are suffering from Post-Traumatic Syndrome, or have some other mental disorder. You may need professional care or medication to change your brain.
A little positive thinking wouldn’t hurt even if one is seriously disturbed. Nobody ever overdosed from a motivational slogan.
Here are few popular slogans to put on the wall and brainwash yourself.

A FEW TYPES OF SPIRITUAL HEALING
Spiritual healing is based on the idea that all physical and mental disorders have a root cause that is spiritual in nature. The physical life is considered just one part of the total existence. Healers often use ritual, prayer, guided meditation and visualization techniques. The are a variety of ways that have been found to balance and unblock spiritual energy and regain a path to better health and enlightenment.
There are so many kinds of spiritual healing that it would be impossible to list them all. Here are just a few that you may not have heard of.
PRANIC healing uses life energy, or Prana, to replace bad energy. The method uses a no-touch technique to cleanse the body of negative energy and replace it with positive.
REIKI is like Pranic healing. There is also no touching involved. Reiki channels currents of spiritual energy. The goal is to balance the Chakras. These are the 7 points of energy and power in the body. The idea originated with Hinduism. Each Chakra has a corresponding color associated with it.
The root Chakra is at the base of the spine and is red.
The Sacral Chakra is orange. It is right about the root Chakra.
Just above that is the solar plexus, which is right in the center of your body. Its color theme is yellow
The heart Chakra’s color is green.
Above that is the throat Chakra, which is blue.
Next is the brow Chakra or third eye. It is related to the color indigo.
At the very top of the head is the 7th Chakra, also called the crown Chakra. Its color is violet. When the crown Chakra is open, it connects to higher states of consciousness. If you have an interest in Chakra healing there are professionals in every metropolitan area. Here is a starter kit in the link below on Amazon. Personal experience can be the best proof of any healing modality.
QIGONG is an ancient Chines therapy that utilizes the life force energy to heal. It is basically a type of exercises, breathing techniques and meditations.
12 STEP Programs are based on the principles founded by Alcoholics Anonymous. It uses twelve steps that are easy but designed to transform one’s life. The 12 Steps are a group of spiritual and psychological lessons. The full description is detailed in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Although its foundation is with A.A., the steps have been adapted for uses with numerous self-help groups. If you or someone you know believes they have a problem with alcohol, there is an office in every city in the world. Someone will gladly answer any questions you have over the phone. The groups are completely anonymous, autonomous, and are not affiliated with any other institution or religious group.
SHIATSU is a form of massage. It uses the hands and fingers to apply pressure to different points in the body. These energy points in the body hold onto stress, trauma and negative emotions. They can be released by a trained therapist in healing.
SPIRIT HEALING is also referred to as “laying on of hands.” Touching is a way of transferring energy from one person to another. The healer may sometimes go into a trance or contact a spirit guide.
QUANTUM TOUCH TECHNIQUE is like Reiki and Qigong. It involves vibration and touch. It combines meditation and breathing in its healing process.
EFT is a technique that uses the ancient concepts of pressure points. It is a self-healing method in which the person taps with their finger on various spots on the body. It is combined with psychology in that the speaks phrases that relate to the problem and combines it with positive phrases. Tapping, or EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE is a very simple kind of therapy with very powerful results. There are professional groups and trained individuals that address every situation or problem. I suggest everyone to research the Tapping Solution on YouTube and find out yourself how miraculous this is. One big plus is that you can do it yourself, for free, to start and text the results. If you are more interested there are great centers that share professional guidance and seminars along with the tapping. But the basic principle is so simple that it seems silly. That is, until you experience the results, as I have. Notice that I am not promoting this in any ways as an ad. It is just my own experience and desire to share.
Theta healing is a form of prayer and meditation. It focused on changing the person’s brain waves to heal emotional and physical health.
CRYSTALS AND STONES FOR HEALING
Healing crystals and stones are used to draw negative energy out of the body. The crystals balance magnetic fields in the body by vibration of electromagnetism. They can also be used in conjunction with Reiki.
Citron crystals have a power to influence self-confidence, wealth and creativity.
Rose quartz is related to the heart Chakra. It regulates positive energy in the region of the fourth Chakra.
Clear quartz is connected to the crown Chakra and provides positive energy. Its intense vibrations connect you to higher consciousness.
Amethyst crystals are used to draw out and get rid of negative energy.
Healing sessions in Reiki may sometimes use a technique of laying crystals on Chakra points. Stones or crystals can also be place in a circle around the person to form a grid of energy.
The Native American Hopi tribe used crystals in healing. Hawaiian Island cultures and the Chinese give healing power to crystals and stones.
EMF, or Electro Magnetic Frequency Protection Devices use Metal encased in resin to block dangerous electromagnetic fields from electronic devices. It combines metals and sometimes in devices to reduce the radiation that is emitted everywhere with the advent of consumer electronic devices that surround people at home, work and on the street. This field has many aspects and will be covered in a blog of its own. Although it uses crystals, EMF protection is a separate area of healing. The crystal aren’t necessary for the devices to work. That have added healing power.
PRAYER AND HEALING
Our brains are changing all the time. This plastic state means that brain waves are affected be every outside stimulus. Prayer and meditation are a method of focusing on healing and positive energy. Your body reacts to this. Tests have shown that less than one minute a day of prayer and meditation on positive images will change your brain waves. The reverse is also true. Prayer can reverse physical effects of stress.
The role of spirituality in life is personal and human beliefs systems vary with cultures and groups. A belief that one is grateful to a higher power has a huge impact on someone’s attitude and on health. Anger, stress, self-centered attitudes and resentment causes the destruction of living cells.
This doesn’t mean everyone sick has been negative. Environment, DNA, diet and accidents cause physical illness and damage. But if a person lives in closeness to the Spirit, that makes it easier to let go of worldly pain, struggle and negativity. Pain is physical. But the mind also controls the body. And if the mind is full of positive spiritual thoughts, it is easier to let God in. Then there is less room for thoughts of pain and depression.
MEDITATION FOR HEALING
Meditation and prayer are closely aligned. However, meditation is a mechanical, physical action. It can, but doesn’t have to be, spiritual. You don’t need to “believe” in meditation for it to work. Meditation is like lifting weights. You don’t need to believe your body will build muscles for the exercise to work.
Meditation gives a focus on self-awareness. It is letting go of thinking and just being. It can bring a sense of serenity and even euphoria. Both meditation and prayer have been proven to alter brain waves. For that reason, there are healing aspects of the practice of meditation.
IS A MORE POSITIVE SPIRIT ALSO HEALTHIER?
What is healthy. It is basically when a person is at peace and happy. It that context a person could be suffering a chronic physical disease and still be healthy. Nobody lives forever. There are daily advances in the medical industry. However, the environment is becoming more toxic. The world is becoming overcrowded. It is wonderful that science is finding cures for disease. But most people think it is the quality of life that is important.
Often it is only the rich that can afford to benefit from medical cures. However, everyone can pray, meditate and think positively. So how to attract positive spiritual energy is just as important as being wealthy. If humans become more spiritually aware, then the planet will have a future, not just as a parking place for mega cities and technological machines, but for happy human beings.
