I got my aura photographed in Chinatown the other day. After the photograph (you sit still for about 10 seconds with your hands placed on electric sensors while an old timey-looking camera captures the image), they do a reading for you. Yellow (third chakra, manipura, solar plexus) is all about manifesting, achieving goals, mastery of desire, and radiance. The green represents the past few weeks (which she read as very busy - true) and the blue speaks to the near future (slowing down and resting - also true). She said my heart is open, I carry my tension in my neck and shoulders, and have a tendency to overthink things (ahh yep). Then she recommended I purchase some “grounding” stones.
In Kundalini yoga, they talk a lot about the arc line. Notice the lack of light circled above my head. Think of old paintings of saints — this is where holy people glow.
Whether or not aura photography actually captures some truth about me / my soul / personality, I do know two things to be true: Everything is light. Everything is energy.
A few days later I visited a psychic. While I love all things mystical, I think most psychics are hacks (or least out of touch with their gifts due to greed), but for $10 I figured why not. She told me my aura is dark and is meant to be indigo blue. She also told me that I need grounding and I have three blocked chakras (blocked by other people’s energy). After the reading I showed her this photo. She paused, then explained that the area lacking light in the centre is what she was talking about - darkened, ie no colour. Then she tried to sell me an aura cleansing.
I take what I need from these mystical modalities and find the grounding commonalities interesting. I am currently home-free and have developed stability in this way of life, but I do often yearn for staying in one place. I know the road will always pull at me, but maybe the time is coming to make the choice not to listen to that pull. To ground and make roots. Last night I dreamt of gardening. There is a time to reap and a time to sow. A time to get carried by the wind and a time to sit still and grow.
