Aura, the

The threads we must use to weave it

May 5th 2018
The sacred books frequently mention the part played by some precious garment: a dress, tunic or veil. This garment is symbolic. It represents the aura, that is, the spiritual emanation from a being. The Old Testament relates, for example, that Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him because Jacob, their father, had offered him a beautiful tunic, stating that this tunic was made of many colours. Such detail suggests a link between this garment and the aura, the pure and shimmering colours corresponding to the different qualities and virtues. This garment of light and colours is given to us by the divine world, but it is given to us as a reward for our work. All the threads and colours are at our disposal, but it is up to us to obtain them and undertake the weaving. With the violet (spiritual love), indigo (strength), blue (faith), green (hope), yellow (wisdom), orange (holiness) and red (life), we can patiently weave this splendid garment, which will protect us on our path through this dark forest of life.
