Walter Makichen was an amazing energy healer and instrumental person in my life. Not only was he a wonderful mentor, he was a genuinely nice human being and cared a tremendous amount about the clients he worked with. It was because of Walter Makichen that I do the work I do now ~ energy medicine. Whether someone is interested in getting pregnant, finding their dream home or starting a new relationship, there are energy medicine techniques each of us can utilize to help make room for what we want to birth.
Walter Makichen taught me a tremendous amount about how to become more in tune with my own energy field and how to “read” other people’s energy fields. I’d like to talk about a concept that Walter Makichen helped me hone ~ the aura or subtle energy body.
We each have a subtle energy system, which some people call the aura. When we learn where our energy skin begins and ends it allows us to become more familiar with our own energetic environment. With this information we can choose to keep our energy skin clean and clear utilizing energy medicine tools. This helps to offer a nurturing environment for whatever we want to bring into our lives.
To find the circumference of your healthy aura, you can stretch your arms out in a T-shape and draw an imaginary circle around you making sure that this circle touches the tips of your fingers on both your left and right hands. Then raise your arms above your head; the tips of your fingers are roughly the top of your healthy energetic space. Remember to allow for room under your feet for your healthy aura – about 12 inches. You might find it helpful to visualize, sense or feel an egg-shaped cocoon around you. Remember the bubble that Glinda the Good Witch was in in the movie The Wizard of Oz? The bubble was like her healthy aura. I encourage you to get a sense of what a healthy aura is like. From here, you can begin to tell more about what you might be going through, or if you can sense the aura of others, what they might be dealing with.
Auras can be tight against us and spread out. When our aura is very small this usually is a sign that we are in a tremendous amount of fear. When our aura is more diffuse, this often means that we have too much going on and are spread too thin.
With just this amount of information you can begin to work with your energy field. Becoming aware of the fact that you have an energy skin and then bringing your awareness to it in order to learn more about it is a wonderful way to help you to empower yourself to make any necessary changes you may want to so that you can create the most nurturing environment for what you want to manifest.
In the comments below, let me know how you’re getting to know your aura on a deeper level and what you’d like to manifest.
