Affirmation: I will treat others with fairness and compassion.
I have heard a lot of people talking of auras and the energy that comes from
them and how we can be affected by them. Could you shed some light on this
Deborah from Barrie
A very timely question for sure. We are approaching a very emotional time of the
year for most and it is a good idea to understand how energy can affect us.
An aura is an energy field around our body... we all have one and it can change
colors very quickly. Envision a rainbow around you and you have an aura! I keep
it simple! One of the colors is red and my interpretation of this color is
tension, green for control, orange for getting priorities in order, purple for
healing, brown for grounding, rose for nurturing and blue for inner peace.
When you meet someone and feel angst or problems around them
they are most likely emitting red... when you meet someone you would like to
give a big hug to you can be sure that person is giving off rose, blue or
purple. It is really that simple!
Our aura or energy can make or break us in business meetings or
everyday relationships so we need to be aware of how we are feeling or
presenting ourselves to others.
I would like to share an article a listener to my radio show
sent me recently... again, timing is amazing!
Keeping in mind that words and auras can affect us, enjoy and
share with others.
Thank you for your letter.
Below is a very good quotation about the power of our words.
Once something has been said, it can never be taken back. Even if you apologize
for it, you still cannot erase the words from the other person's mind.
Do you remember the old saying ...
*Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never hurt you.*
Not true! Words can hurt you and others very much. There
is tremendous power in the words we speak and the thoughts we think, especially
the ones we think and speak over and over again. They then become our beliefs
and can run our lives unconsciously.
This can also work in a very positive way. We never know when our words will
inspire and uplift someone, or when something we say can change someone's life
for the better.
I ran into a young boy in the elevator today and he looked very sad. He was
looking at his school paper and it had 3 red marks on it. I asked him what was
the matter and he said. "I got three wrong". And so I said, "Three out of
how many?" And he replied – “Three out of 100”. I answered –“So you mean you got
97 RIGHT! If you ask me, that's pretty close to GENIUS!” He looked up at me, his
face beaming with the most delicious smile and then he literally skipped out of
A few minutes, a few WORDS, a small miracle!
Today as you move about your world, pay close attention to what
you are thinking and saying. You just may be the small miracle that someone else
is waiting for.
* Words are more powerful than any army.
Swifter than a light beam. Words can ruin friendships.
Words can attract people to you, or drive them away.
Words can persuade others to take all sorts of actions.
Go to war. March for peace. To laugh. To cry. To buy.
Words in your "self-talk" can make you sad or happy.
Choose words you say to yourself or to others with the utmost care.*
