“When you have overcome your fear, you are calm. When you are calm, you can exercise awareness. When you are aware, you can listen to your sixth sense, your intuition. Only then are you really alive!!!”
We all have a sixth sense and by unlocking your sixth sense, you can become your own protector and personal adviser. You will listen to yourself before you do anything, and your mind and body will give you the answer or show you how to protect yourself. Listening to your intuition will save your life.
Most people have had experiences such as walking into a bar or a building where there has been a disturbance and the atmosphere seems charged. Your body and your mind will usually give you some indication that this place is not safe and you should leave. This is not as difficult to explain as you might think. Every fuelled situation leaves an emotional trail of energy, and we instinctively tune in to that frequency. Your hair may stand on end and you may feel shivers. Many people will put this down to a psychosomatic symptom of the mind, but in fact you are using your natural intuitive ability and your body and spirit is warning you off. It is up to you to pay attention to this warning. An uncomfortable emotional feeling is akin to an alarm, yet through our own ignorance and machismo, we would rather ignore it for fear of feeling week.
Environmental awareness, physical awareness, and mental awareness, by combining each of these and using your in-built intuition, you can develop the ability to predict events. How do we achieve this? First we have to understand the aura and how it works.
We all have a vibration field, an energy that surrounds every one of us that holds our personal model of life. This field consists of electromagnetic particles that resonate at a particular vibration and frequency. Scientists have been researching this energy field for a long time, yet it remains at the fringe of scientific acceptance. In the last few years, well-known scientists such as Harry Oldfield and Dr Barbara Brennan have broken through that barrier to try proving and explaining the existence of the Auric field.
With practice and time, we can learn to open up our psychic centres and receive inbound information in many ways using all psychic abilities. These centres when balanced and unblocked can be an effective method of protecting the mind, body and spirit.
Negativity is also held within the aura; evidently, thought forms appear within the emotional and mental field of our aura. Fear is that same thought form and is there to be received by a tuned in receiver – even if that receiver has anarchy on his mind. Understanding this process and recognizing the feeling of fear is the first step to controlling it and accepting it.
When your mind accepts what it is that you fear and you face up to it, you can begin to transmute this negative thought process into useful energy that can be used as a weapon. For instance, let’s say that you are too frightened to be alone in your own home. The fear you exude makes you an easier target. Your would-be attacker picks up on this negative energy and you are at risk of becoming a victim of terror. Imagine walking along a street at night, and you begin to sense negative energy. Your mind multiplies this a thousand times and creates a terrible fear. This is manifested in your mind and you exude that fear in your aura. The physical body then starts to display the body language of a fearful individual. Now you are a target for attackers. What you fear is attracted to you. The attacker is consumed with negative energy and is attracted to the source of similar energy – the principle of cause-and-effect.
Our personal space is an important factor in life. If someone encroaches on our space at home or in the workplace, we feel violated, and that can be a simple action such as disturbing something in your home or removing something from your desk. This violation is only lifted if we have given the permission for someone to enter our personal space.
This concept applies especially in martial arts, where you are taught to maintain your personal space and keep a safe distance between you and any potential threat. When someone breaches your personal space, you immediately feel under threat, and take the necessary precautions to protect yourself. If someone comes too close you have an overwhelming sense of encroachment and possibly fear because of the energy overlap from the other person’s aura into yours, especially if the incoming energy is denser and more negative.
We all have an Aura
Everyone has an Auric field, and the attributes of this field are obvious from a spiritual and psychic point of view. Each of us can use this ethereal body as a fearsome weapon – we can enhance our ability to sense and use the information contained within it. By learning to heighten your natural ability, you become more perceptible to the subtle energies that surround you. If you are a potential target, you can learn to anticipate any probable threats or impending danger.
“Your own early warning system will keep you alive.”
This energy field surrounds your physical being in every way and is commonly known as your Auric field. It consists of the physical, emotional, mental and etheric, or spiritual, bodies. Within this field is every thought and emotion your body exudes, the blueprint of your life-plan for past, present and future. Its colours change with different emotions or physical expressions.
Rings of protection
Let’s look at the make-up of the aura and how it can aid us in protecting our mind, body and spirit. Protection IS much like an onion whose layers denote the concentric rings of protection. The aura is also made up of many layers of protection:
Etheric – This is the first layer that most psychically gifted individuals can see. It extends approx half an inch from the body and almost acts as a second skin. Within this layer, physical ailments can be detected. It looks silvery blue in colour though some see the colour as gray. This layer also holds the blueprint of your physical body.
Emotional – This layer contains the emotions you are feeling at any moment, so the colours within the aura can change according to how you are feeling. How can this emotional state effect the ability to look after your mind, body and spirit? If you are feeling the emotion of fear, then you will exude that emotion and any sensitive individuals would be able to pick up that emotion. It also exudes the emotion that we feel for others outside ourselves – so if you are feeling anger at someone then that emotion would be easily recognizable. This can be an early warning sign to you if you learn how to recognize the emotional state of others.
Mental – The mental layer contains the information on your beliefs, intellect and personal power relating to the sum total of who you are in the physical and mental sense. The thought processes are registered in this area – your decisions in what you think are registered in this field. The colour of this field is mainly yellow and thought forms are structured as un-shapely blobs of energy. The thought forms that are in our awareness at the time are registered in this field. It is obvious that with training and raising our awareness, we can pick up on these thoughts through the sixth sense – another key to personal protection.
Imagine standing in a bus shelter. Someone approaches you and you instinctively feel uneasy – why? Have you picked up on his thoughts? The energy the person exudes is negative and he may be thinking evil thoughts – this is what you feel. Your early warning system has been activated.
Learn to read the Auric field
By now, you will have an in-depth idea of the Auric field and its associations to the body on all levels. Understanding how fear or negative energy reacts within the aura is the first step in learning to defend yourself utilizing your sixth sense. Aggression, like any emotional thought form, shows itself within the aura and can be an early warning signal to imminent violence. If you can pick up this negative emotional energy, then you can take the necessary precautions to remove yourself from the vicinity of danger.
We must learn how to notice these waves of thought and how we can control them. By simply noticing the thoughts and allowing them to leave our mind in a loving manner, we gain control of the emotional field that surrounds us and we gain control of our fears. To remain positive in the face of adversity shows us that we do not need to allow negative emotion to control our life.
Strengthening the aura
Remember the stronger the energy surrounding you, the stronger you will be in securing your environment – helping you to heighten your awareness to protect all that you have in mind, body and spirit.
There are many ways to ensure that your aura remains strong and impenetrable from outside forces. Meditation is by far the easiest way to strengthen your aura by your intention only. By visualizing and believing in what you are doing, you will succeed in strengthening all levels of your Auric field. Visualize yourself inside a bubble of white light. To increase this light, you must breathe in deeply asking for the universe to cleanse your aura. As you breathe out, use your intention to release any negativity that is within you or surrounds you, and send it back to the universe for transmuting to positive energy. As you breathe out, you will note the white energy filling your aura and making it strong and impenetrable. You must learn to visualize this in picture form and believe in what you see, “to believe is to conceive”.
Certain crystals can be used to increase the strength in the aura and to repel negative vibrations that may be trying to permeate your Auric field. Crystals have a vibration all of their own and exude positive vibrations each on a varying frequency. These frequencies can either attract or deter negativity. A good crystal to use for this is Black Tourmaline. Think on this; if crystals are used in medicine, weaponry, jewellery and power machinery – is it not so that the same can interact with your own frequency.
Intention is very simple; if I am sitting on a chair and I decide to stand up and move into the kitchen, I use my intention. Firstly, my thought is conceived in my mind – the feeling of wanting to move from the chair to the kitchen. I see this visually and then make the intent manifest to move. This is the same with any intention that you have in your life. Many years ago, I studied another martial form called Taekwondo. Part of learning this art is learning how to break blocks of wood; the first time I tried, I failed. The instructor, Dickie, recognized that I had not visualized breaking the wood and my intention was not focused on that. After a long lecture and a bit of training on visualization I took my place and did it again – this time, to success.
You have to have belief in your ability and in yourself. Believe that you can make yourself safe and you will.
When you are positive and have positive affirmations, the effect is also positive on your Auric field. Your aura becomes vibrant in colour, and the aura is charged with positive energy – with thought forms that are in vibrational harmony with your affirmations, and as that change is manifested, you will find that your vibration matches that of your conscious thought-process, following the law of attraction.
On one training course that I ran for an international oil company, I taught all the elements of awareness and intuition. Through introducing basic meditative principles, I took the students to a heightened form of awareness. After the guided meditation, I helped the students achieve a mind-state in which they were able to sense very subtle changes in their energy field. This sensitivity enabled them to detect the difference in the density of the energy and to feel the presence of other energies. They were now on the first rung of the ladder in developing their sixth sense and being able to use it for their protection.
Fear is not always bad; when a crisis approaches, it shows itself in the surge of adrenalin. Fight or flight? In dangerous situations, we experience a process called ‘The adrenalin dump’, which makes us fight or run, depending on the individual. As such, fear is a valuable tool. If an animal is attacked, it instinctively knows what to do – its survival depends on it. As human beings, we lose this ability all too easily. We become too comfortable or complacent and often don’t see what is right in front of us.
During an attack, several processes happen. It all starts with fear. Fear communicates itself to those around you. It shows in your posture, how you walk and hold yourself, how you approach the world. When you are faced with something you fear, your body responds internally with a faster heart rate and increased breathing rate, and externally with physical signs such as tremors in your hands. We manifest our thoughts so that the fear is shown in body language.
Overcoming fear is a state of mind
The first lesson to learn is that security is a state of mind. Depending on your personal or corporate circumstances, the condition and the situation of your home location, your office and surrounding environments, you may need extensive security or basic precautions. However, whatever you are likely to face, your personal fears are the main factors you should address. Understand your fears and allow them to manifest as positive energy – your fears cannot harm you unless you allow it to happen. If you feel afraid, even though you have no grounds for fear, you must do what is necessary to feel safe. Begin by understanding the emotional nature of fear – face it, feel it, then transmute it.
“It is not wrong to fear, but it is wrong to allow fear to take root in your soul.” J Brocas 2005
By breathing slowly intently and rhythmically, you will manage to remain calm in the face of adversity. It is no coincidence that martial artists put great emphasis on the breath. When you are nervous and fearful your breathing becomes tight, irregular and shallow, you cannot think positively and clearly and are feeding negative energy.
If you find yourself in a serious confrontational situation, you might panic as your fears are instantaneously released and your conscious mind begins to feed your fear. You’re breathing gets faster, adrenalin is released, and you freeze. When you use breath as the control, you interrupt the feeding of the negative energy in that thought process, and the heart rate slows as you become calmer. You are then able to defend yourself with a true heart and reverse any situation to your advantage.
Everything exists and lives on the breath. The secret to controlling life in a more productive way is through meditation and breath, prana or hara as it is understood in other cultures. The ancient Samurai, Ninja and Buddhist monks used the breath as the form of gaining enlightenment. In Budo, the Way of the Warrior, the breath exists as the catalyst that strengthens the power and understanding of the universal force that is energy, and you can manipulate this energy through breathing. You can change it from its normal, low vibration to a higher one. This vibration allows the communion between mind and spirit, and allows the physical body to react in a way that is out of the norm, displaying acts of supernormal ability. The development of psychic abilities is within this dimension and it is by this method of breath work that we learn the secrets to the universe.
