Our aura is the energetic halo surrounding our bodies. This sweet-smelling active meditation uses the power of our senses to quiet the mind and help to purify our aura.
If you have been feeling stressed or anxious, sad or angry, this simple technique will help you to feel cleansed and refreshed. Here are the simple directions to cleanse your aura using fresh herbs:
1. Buy or make a bundle of fresh herbs (basil, lavender, rosemary, thyme, mint–just about anything will work) by tying a bunch together with string.
2. First spend a few moments simply inhaling the fragrance of your herbs.
3. Now sweep your bundle from head to toe and around the back of your body. Hold the herb bundle an inch or two out from your body so that you are moving it over the aura that surrounds your physical self.
4. When you have finished, place the herbs in a glass of water where their scent will remind you of this simple but powerful meditation.
