Our body’s energy can be affected by our surroundings, activities, and the people in our lives. Think about how you may feel after watching a nightly newscast, and how different your energy feels when you are in nature, or with friends and family that you love to be around. Throughout our day, our energy can be high and upbeat, but also hit some lows depending on what we are doing, and who or what we are around. Some of us may be more sensitive than others, but none of us are immune to how our environment affects us.

Strengthening our Aura, or Biofield is one way to pattern the body’s energies so that we can remain strong when our surroundings may not be optimal. The Aura is the field of energy that surrounds our bodies.  It acts like a spacesuit keeping the energy we don’t need away, and like an antenna, channels harmonious energy to us. When it is balanced, it protects and nourishes the other energy systems in the body. Clearing and strengthening the aura helps our physical body and affects how we experience our environment. It is critical for our survival.

The following are just a few of many Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) exercises that you can use to strengthen your Aura. I urge you to pick one, make it part of your daily routine, and see if you don’t feel a little better or a little less sensitive to the energy around you.

Swimming the Aura is one technique that can strengthen our Biofield, and if you really pay attention, sometimes you can feel the energy around you when doing this. Rub your hands together vigorously for a few moments and then with your palms facing out, create a swimming motion in whichever way you choose. You can bring one hand forward and the other behind you. You can reach both hands out to the sides or up and down. Continue doing this in all directions around your body, as well as toward the head and feet. The trick is to do this slow and imagine that the energy you created when you rubbed your hands together is flowing through your palms and into the space around you.

Figure Eights are a hallmark of EEM. They are good to do over any part of your body that does not feel well, and they also strengthen our aura and surrounding energy field. Simply move your hands in a large figure eight pattern around your body. There is no wrong way to do this, simply trace eights in a way that feels right to you.

The Celtic Weave exercise helps to “fluff” your energies so they can protect you in a better way. It is a powerful technique that reinforces the figure eight crossover patterns in the aura and helps to connect all of your energies together. Stand tall with your hands on your thighs. After a deep breath in through your nose, and out through your mouth, rub your hands together vigorously for a few moments. Then bring your palms to either side of your ears, bring your elbows together and swing your hands out to the side. Do this same motion again, but this time bend a bit forward so that you are near your waist. On the third ‘swing out’ perform the technique at your ankle area. Then scoop up the energy you just saturated your aura with and pour it over your body.
