The aura was referred to by the Greeks as Psicosoma: the soul of
the body. It’s an energy field that surrounds every human being. It is
influenced by thoughts, feelings and emotions — if we find ourselves
dealing with difficult or traumatic events, our aura suffers disequilibrium.
Since it’s made up of electromagnetic energy, just like a magnet, it is in
fact magnetic. Hence if your aura is charged with negative energy, it will
attract more negative energy. It’s always a good time to cleanse your
aura, but particularly now as we welcome in a new year. A simple way to
accomplish this is by bringing positive light to your energy filed via ruta,
or rue plant, commonly known as “The Herb Of Grace”. Just a few leaves
of the rue are needed. Pass them over your body, starting from the top
of your head down to your feet, as you envision positive energy and light
bathing you. After you’re done, you can burn or toss the rue out. This is
something that can be practiced once a month. It all depends on how you
feel, always trusting your intuition.

TEX T BY FR ANCESCA CRUZ
Ready to soak in a bath before
festivities start? Add pure
essential oils of lavender,
sandalwood and citronella. Aside
from keeping mosquitos at bay
and smelling wonderful, these oils assist in striping away
negative chi from your aura.
Lemongrass is one of the top herbs
used for expelling negative energy.
Add some of the essential oil to
your favorite body moisturizer, or
purchase lemongrass tea and enjoy
a spot while relaxing with a favorite book.
SAFFRON & COZY
Use saffron water to cleanse the
space your bed occupies. Sprinkle
the saffron water as you walk 3
times around the bed in a clockwise
direction. Saffron is a very powerful
substance for purifying spaces on a monthly basis.
