Watching Infants Auras
We saw in part six how the aura of the new born baby was formed and developed, in this part we can learn how the young infants aura and its colours come into effect. We shall learn how food especially affects the colour of our auras.
After the first year another change begins to be seen in the aura. A faint, rosy tinge is perceived in the midst of the blue vibration; a tinge which appears to emanate from the region of the solar plexus. This vibration very slowly spreads and intensifies in colour until about the age of five, when another change can also be observed. The writer Usula Roberts who wrote for the spiritualist churches and expert in auras and their formation believed this to be the colour of the natural instincts and appetites, since i can be seen to intensify to a deep red when the child is provoked to anger, and dying to the original pink when the interest is diverted. Possibly it is created by the different substance’s extracted from the food on which the child is fed. We all know that certain foods , by creating digestive difficulties, can also upset the nervous system. We may conclude that the introduction of high protein-valued foods create a different nervous radiation which is shown aurically in this manner.
How emotions effect a childs aura?
One must conclude that the red radiation is of nervous and emotional origin since it is situated in the region of the solar plexus. It is well known that all emotions affect the nervous system which radiates from the plexus centre in the same way that railway lines may radiate across the country from a certain terminus. It is also known that people who live upon a diet composed largely of animal food have proverbially unstable nervous systems in which animal passions such as lust, greed, anger etc, are apt to overpower the reasoning faculties. We must conclude that the constituents in animal foods supply to the human organism a high rate of nervous energy which is thrown off in this manner. It has been observed in the case of vegetarians that the plexus radiation is of a soft pink shade, in contrast to that of the flesh eater, who betrays a red which differs in the degree of murkiness according to the amount of the food consumed.The radiation also differs in its colouring according to the temperament of the individual. Thus a calm, self controlled person radiates a soft and gentle red, while the hasty tempered and lustful temperament betrays shades of crimson or scarlet.
Diet and Aura
Again we must return to the topic of food. It has been frequently proved that a change in diet results in a change of temper; much ill temper is known to be seated in digestive disturbances, through diets which supply too much protein to the system, causing blood pressure and choleric outbursts. In the case of children, this radiation appears as a normal stage in their development; it is undoubtedly rooted in some dietary change, but it is indicative of natural instincts such as hunger, adventure, anger, curiosity, affection, etc., without the experience of which it would not, as it does, evolve the intellectual, thinking self.
The sensitive child is invariably the child who is not very strong physically and in the sensitive, nervous child both the blue and the pink radiations are far more subtle than in the case of the robust child, whose explosive interest in all things, and whose practically inexhaustible energy, betrays the depth of the blue and red colourings. Again I return to the food question and point out that the delicate child is naturally fed with finer, milkier and more easily digested food in consequence of which the nervous radiations would differ in the materials from which they originated.
In later years when the adult begins the spiritual quest, it is the sensitive individual who easily subdues the animal nature and cleanses the consciousness of earthly desires preparatory to illumination, while the passionate man or woman struggles long and hard to control the elements which have been built into their make-up during childhood.
