An Introduction To Aura
Definition Of "Aura"
An "Aura" is an electro-magnetic field in the form of light around all things living. It has up to all 7 layers of colors of the rainbow & allows the viewer of another person's aura to know what that particular individual is currently thinking. An aura is just another body of a living being that is not effortlessly visible to the naked eye. An aura has 2 layers: an inner layer & an outer layer. Both the layers vary with intensity. An aura allows an individual to know another individual's past by scanning through their aura. Even objects have an aura & not just living beings.
