As energy is generated throughout the body’s cell and various processes, the human body produces an energetic or electromagnetic field. Theories suggest there are three layers to the body’s electromagnetic and energetic fields. The outer layer, or aura, is the body’s first line of defense against energetic, mental, physical and emotional intrusions. The aura is often visible in pictures, and some people can visibly see the auras of others. In addition, the electrons or electrical energy of auras can be measured scientifically. When operating at its fullest capacity, this layer is often referred to when people say “a person has a thick skin”. The energetic layer allows negativity, disease and emotional disruptions to more easily bounce off a person, rather than getting “under their skin”.
The second layer, or chakra layer, is intertwined with the body’s emotional, mental and spiritual health. When fully functional, these chakras act like “spinning vortexes” of energy throughout the body. In philosophy, these chakras align with the colors of the rainbow, as well as the notes of the musical scale. Each chakra coincides with overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual functioning. When fully thriving, chakras are spinning and help to ward off mental illness and disease.
The third layer, or the physical energetic system, can be fully felt throughout the body. The physical feelings of anxiety, depression, emotional fatigue, and even illness can be attributed to the body’s physical energetic system.
