That Glimmer of Life: Death, The Energy Body & Its Aura

When persons are nearing death,
their auras change dramatically. As a mystic and healer with
many years experience, I have probably had more opportunities
than most to observe the auras of people with terminal illnesses,
in the weeks, days, hours and minutes prior to their death.

The first auric symptoms of
approaching death through illness are difficult to diagnose for
what they actually are. The etheric aura just starts fading away,
very gradually, as the dying person grows weaker, until it is
almost undetectable. This also happens, though, during the natural
course of many non-fatal illnesses. Please keep this in mind
before you start telling people they are about to die.

For what its worth, with these
poor tools I have of words, I will try and share what I have
seen with some terminally ill people during the time leading
up to their deaths. This provides a good general example as the
timing of the end result, death, is usually fairly predictable.

The colours of the main aura
begin to fade and change slowly during the few months prior to
death. This continues until there is only a faint tint of colour
left in it; giving it a washed-out look. The etheric aura (the
thin band of pale-blue or creamy aura next to the skin) also
fades rapidly during this time. It shrinks a little more each
day and pales until it is almost undetectable. The natural bioenergetic
recharging process slows as the energy body prepares itself for
its approaching demise, and the transition of its essential animating
spirit into another dimension of existence.

A couple of days before death,
depending on the nature of the disease of course, the etheric
aura undergoes a dramatic change and begins expanding. The primary
and secondary and tertiary energy centers, of the energy body,
seem to open wide at this point and start pumping vast amounts
of refined spiritual energy into the energy body; flooding the

This causes the aura to have
a peculiar bright ethereal glow, but unfortunately one that can
usually only be seen with clairvoyance (mind's eye vision ability,
i.e., the ability to see visions) and not with normal auric sight
alone. This change can also be felt by a sensitive if they have
experienced it before and know what to sense for.

The energies accompanying
this ethereal glow usually have the effect of temporarily uplifting
dying persons. It can also cause clairvoyance in varying degrees.
While this variability seems affected by innate ability, they
will often begin seeing into the next world, to see and hear
spirits. This can be very confusing for them. Often they will
hide the fact they can see and hear people they know are long
dead; not wanting to appear crazy and upset their loved ones.

This ethereal expansion continues
until it surpasses the original size of the main aura. The colour
is a beautiful, very, very pale sky-blue, shot through with millions
of white and silver sparks. It also develops a peculiar cool-tingly,
fizzy feeling to it. A lot of energy can be sensed in this; but
not the normal vitality type of energy.

Note: This does
NOT mean that any person seen with a pale-blue aura, with or
without sparks, is about to die; even if you happen to see this
in your own aura during self-observation. There are several circumstances
that can cause similar-looking temporary changes. For
example, the human aura tends to expand and turn pale-blue in
full sunlight; or be changed by the blue-sky above and behind
the subject being observed. And keep in mind that background
colours can also change auric colours. Spiritual upliftment,
including mystical experience, can also have a similar temporarily
effect. The colour of the aura during the death process is quite
different from any normal pale-blue aura. It is also quite difficult
to see this type of aura with a normal level of auric sight alone.

The surrounding atmosphere
generated by the expanding ethereal aura often makes people feel
uncomfortable. I think this may be because it can be difficult
to relate on a personal level to what is happening, i.e., the
death process; especially on a spiritual energy level. The heaviness
in the atmosphere around a dying person can also cause some perplexing
emotions to manifest within those exposed to it. People can become
emotionally drained if exposed to this for even a short length
of time.

In situations like this, understandably,
there is also often a lot of fear and sadness permeating the
atmosphere. But sensed at a higher level of perception there
is also a profound emanation of love coming through dying persons;
even though they may not feel this themselves. This atmosphere
intensifies as the moment of death nears.

As a mystic, being in the
presence of a dying person is truly humbling. The source power
can be incredibly strong at times. You are, basically, standing
in the shadow of a greater light being cast through a briefly
opened doorway, flowing from a higher level of reality; from
one of the spirit worlds or heavens. Unfortunately, for all intents
and purposes this is an unseen light to mortal eyes.

A sensitive can feel the presence
of the source in this light. It is a tangible, almost touchable
energy that permeates the mystical heart center. This can make
it swell and thrum with a gentle and powerful rhythm unlike any
other; with a kind of spiritual energy resonance.

During the few moments before
death, the ethereal-cum-mystical aura surges dramatically, flooding
the room for a moment with a profound cool stillness. At this
moment, it can feel like time itself has stopped. This is when
the unseen light is at its strongest and the doorway into the
spirit world is at its widest. Phenomena will sometimes be seen
at this time, often visible to the naked eye. I have my suspicions
that a dying person's Kundalini raises to its highest level at
this time.

The time distortion comes
from the rooms exposure to an abstract spiritual reality of a
higher dimensional existence than the normal physical dimension
we live in. The higher the dimensional level, the less the passing
of time is apparent. On the highest level, time ceases and there
is only The Eternal Now. Time stands utterly still.

At the moment of death the
released spirit of the deceased person will fly swiftly out of
his or her body, sometimes helped by loved ones that are waiting.
The spirit's old physical body is now biologically deceased.
The unseen ethereal aura then contracts rapidly, imploding and
fading away to nothing in a matter of a few seconds.

This whole process is like
an etheric-cum-auric bioenergetic explosion, followed by an implosion
that sucks all the available energy in the room away with it;
often including heat energy.

At the moment of death, as
a doorway cracks open into a higher reality and the spirit is
drawn through it, all free energy can be drawn into it, including
the emotional energy being vented by mourners. This can create
an unnaturally cold feeling around any newly deceased person.

After death, the atmosphere
in the room carries a shocked kind of feeling -- that's the only
way to really describe it. This is caused by the terrific forces
that were work during the death process. You can feel this hanging
in the atmosphere wherever there has been a recent death; especially
if you are a sensitive. Depending on the nature of the death
in question, this atmosphere generally fades away over a few
days. But in an area where there has been a violent or massive
loss of life, this shocked feeling can persist for months or
even years.

The discarded physical body
is now left with only a very weak ethereal glow around it; swiftly
fading to nothing. This is barely detectable even with the strongest
level of auric sight. This is residual etheric matter and not
living aura. This fades away very quickly and nothing more will
be seen of the living aura around the corpse. You will see only
a pale outline, such as you can see around any inanimate object.

The living aura dies with
the departure of its essential animating spirit.
 I have seen a lot of strange and wonderful
things around people when they have died, but never have I seen
a living aura around a human corpse.

The human aura is not to be
mistaken as just a mere reflection of what goes on within the
living body. It is an integral part of the bioenergetic system
binding the essential animating spirit in physical matter, i.e.,
in its physical body. It is not insubstantial like a rainbow
or a projected image. It is only ever present in a living being.
It has depth and texture, it has warm and cool areas, and parts
of it tingle and pulse -- to the hands of a sensitive that is.
There is a unique look and feel to any human aura. It is a living
thing that can be keenly felt by the hands of sensitives and
healers, as well as seen and sensed in other ways.

The human energy system and
its aura, and all the wonderfully complex life processes going
on within and around it, enable the essential animating spirit
to manifest through it into the physical dimension. The spirit
animates the physical body through this wonderful bioenergetic
process. When it is a spirits time to leave its physical body,
this all closes down. It is no longer needed when the spirit
goes home again, back to its natural timeless state.

The living aura is still very
mysterious, for all the little we know about it. And its existence
cannot simply be explained away. It may not fit in with our present
level of scientific understanding, but that does not mean it
does not exist or is any less real. Aura is strictly a living
thing. (RB)
