[Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- September 2000]
[MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people’s auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy’s aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally?
The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person’s Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen.
A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here.
In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy’s Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed represented the release of minor beliefs from Troy’s Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these are released, even if only temporarily.
As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side.
