The Raiment of Light – David V. Tansley
The human aura is something that we may only have sensed dimly with our conscious minds; David Tansley shows us how we can each become aware of our own aura, and understand its importance in our everyday lives. He traces our understanding of the aura from prehistory, when primitive man’s awareness of it was essential to his survival, to the present day, when the pressures of modern living make knowledge of the significance of the aura just as crucial.
Drawing on the research and observations of both scientists and psychics, he explains the meaning of colours seen in the aura, and the relationship between the auras, chakras and subtle bodies. He examines the attitudes of science and medicine to this field of study, and guides us towards awakening our latent ability to see, sense and interpret the aura. Good physical and psychological health depends on the aura being integrated and vital: David Tansley warns that we may be polluting our auras – physically, through drugs, junk food and environmental toxins, and psychically through the media and through indulgence in negative thoughts – and he outlines exercises in cleansing the aura which will help individuals to restore auric integrity and develop the aura’s role in medicine, healing and in self-transformation.
