Explaining The Auric Energy Field and How Smudging Cleanses the Aura

Jun 22, 2024

Every living thing has an auric energy field, otherwise known as the subtle bodies. Keeping the aura free of negativity is important and can be done using a technique called smudging.

Smudging to clear the subtle energies is done through the burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification. Smudging is also used to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies or influences. It is also an effective method for energizing or blessing a person, place, or object.

If the auric colors have dulled or a layer of the aura has become clogged up it can make someone feel feeling anxious, resentful, sick, depressed even angry.
Smudging to clear the auric energy field of negativity is used by many clairvoyants for clearing negativity in the aura as well as before beginning a ritual or ceremony.

Most spiritual workers cleanse their crystals and spiritual tools by smudging to cleanse them of any negative or lingering energy.

What are the auric colors

The aura has seven layers or fields, often referred to as harmonics because of the colors they emit. The subtle bodies contain the primary colors of the rainbow. These colors can change depending on the emotion an individual is experiencing. The auric energy field is made up of many colors and many shades of colors which alter; this shows our constant change in thoughts and emotions.

As we move through life we are continuously changing, which means that our own individual auric colors are also changing.

Herbs used for Smudging
Smudging is done in a variety of ways and with the use of different herbs, however Sage is the most common herb used, followed by Sweet Grass. Sage can be used to get rid of negative energies, spirits, and influences, while the sweet grass will gather new and positive energies.

A smudge stick is made from herbs tied into a bundle and allowed to dry. In traditional societies the herbs used for smudging are considered sacred and the smudge stick is treated with great respect.

How to smudge to clear the subtle bodies of negativity
The art of smudging is easy to master, however this is a ritual that needs to be undertaken with conviction and intent for it to work. To begin a candle is lit and the end of the smudge stick is held in the flame. The idea is to catch the very end of the smudge stick alight.
Once the smudge stick is alight with flame, blow it out so that the smudge stick is smouldering, not burning.

Smudging to cleanse the aura of negativity

For this you will need feathers – you could use your hand if you wish but typically feathers are used. You will need to fan – waft the swirls of smoke around your body from head to toe. You could ask someone to swirl the smoke around you, to be sure that you get to the areas like your back.

You could also place the smouldering smudge stick on a shell and step through the wafting smoke. When smudging to cleanse the aura of negativity you should concentrate on the areas where you feel there are blockages or where there has been or is physical, emotional, or spiritual pain. This is felt when a layer of the aura is blocked.

When smudging to clear the subtle bodies you need to imagine the smoke from the smouldering smudge stick is carrying away the negativity that is around you and within each the layer of the aura. If you are feeling anxious for example, visualize the smoke carrying away all your anxiety.

You may want to repeat to yourself an intention or a suggestion while smudging.
