The Aura, Part Three
explained by Dr. Hunt)
Long before the Zuni Indians were aware of the
existence of the white man they had perfected in their
healing arts the use of prismatic color and sound.
They took shells which they found in their magic
Color, sound and fragrance are the three basic
remedies against human diseases, in the words of Nicholas
Roerich, the Russian painter and mystic.
They have always played a very important part in
occult teaching. In
the Egyptian temples at
Before the dawn of speech man depended upon senses
that were a function of the subconscious mind; during the
Atlantean period he had “long sight” and “long
hearing” which he lost as his body became more dense and
he gained rational experience.
His negative and uncontrolled faculties of involution
are replaced by the positive self-controlled ones of
evolution. He is
learning now to extend and control his seven-fold powers,
attuning them to an at-one-ment with nature in brotherly
service to mankind. The
loss of these ancient senses will be regained through labor,
love and effort of will.
Franz Mesmer in the early part of the 19th
Century, who was called the Father of Magnetic Healing,
showed that the magnetic atmosphere about an individual,
called the aura, indicates man’s physical condition and
also his mental and spiritual state.
Medical men have regarded the body as a machine
which, when out of order, has to be adjusted by physical
means, thus correcting only results.
Mesmer demonstrated that no proper diagnosis was
possible unless the conditions of the subtler bodies are
observed and their inharmony adjusted.
Mesmer taught that the stream of cosmic energy sent
forth by the sun had to be drawn in to the body and
distributed to the proper centers in the body.
This electrical energy is like a ray of white light
which has to be broken up, as it enters the body, into the 7
colors of the spectrum and the proper color sent to each
chakra to energize it. Upon
this depends the health of the physical body.
The white in the aura coming from God-head, is
projected inward. All
the colors are radiated outward by the individualized
consciousness, the soul’s response to the white light of
shafts of white light in perfected man all travel evenly to
the center of the aura.
But in the imperfect individual the shafts stop at
the auric level where the inharmony occurs.
It is at this point where there is blockage that the
endocrine glands are prevented from functioning properly,
causing the physical illness.
The endocrine glands are the alchemists which
transform the solar elements, chemicals, colors, odors,
sounds, foods and thoughts into stamina, balance, mental
power and attainment.

In regards to foods, man should feed upon
agricultural products created by the Universal light if he
is to conform to that light.
It is through the channel of these 7 centers that man
is affected by the vibrations of color and all the other
octaves of cosmic energy which nourish his subtle bodies.
Color and music play an important part in the
evolution of the subtle bodies of man.
Specific kinds and tones of color and music affect
the different bodies and the mental, emotional and physical
planes. The more
subtle the tone, the greater is its effect on the higher
quarter tones of ancient Hindu music producing equally
subtle tones of color, influenced the mentality, philosophy
and advancement of mysticism.
Ancient Egyptian music was third-tone, producing less
subtle tones of color which had special effects upon the
The half-tone of modern music affects the senses and
the physical body, or the realm of materialism and physical
effects produced by these vibrations on higher planes than
physical vision can perceive, influence not only the subtler
bodies but health and behavior.
Apple-green, for instance is the color of sympathy on
the higher planes and in the emotional body.
When this color is used, or sympathetic music such as
Mendelssohn’s played, it tends to increase this color in
the aura of the individual and thus develop the quality of
Each person has a particular color and sound
predominant on each plane.
These colors of the three vehicles, the physical
emotional and mental will make a beautiful harmony if the
vehicles are in tune. But
if the body is ill, the emotions uncontrolled, or the mind
undeveloped, the colors will be discordant.
If an individual is entirely lacking in a certain
quality, a color treatment for that quality will not help
him; the most which can be done is to apply such color as
will gradually weaken the opposite or self-centered emotion
and give the positive quality a chance to grow.
Within the past few decades, Light Research Institutes have been established in several countries to study the effects of color upon the body. Chromotherapy is being used in many clinics and by medical men in the treatment not only of nervous disorders but for every kind of illness. Science is studying the effects of color on emotions and mind as well as upon the physical body, and color psychologists are working with industry to relieve tensions and lessen accidents, creasing the well-being of employees.
Lasting benefits from color require a degree of color awareness. True benefits at the higher level come with unfoldment of spiritual faculties. The patient must in fact learn to heal himself by becoming a radiant channel of power and service to others, drawing in and projecting the light and color.

The first lesson for the individual to learn is harmlessness to every living thing, gradually attuning himself to universal brotherhood and love until he realizes love is the power which dissolves all inharmony in the body.
Diagnosis in color healing is made by placing the patient in a darkened room preferably with dark walls so that the radiations from the auras may be readily seen. The healthy aura appears clear and bright, the colors extending in waves several inches from the body. If the colors are dull and there are dark blotches or stains there are conditions of ill-health in the body. The vibrations can usually be seen to curl inwards over the affected part, showing where the blockage of life force is occurring.
Wrong thinking is the cause of such illness; this out-pictures in the mental aura as a know blocking the influx of white light. As the wrong thinking is persisted in, the know is drawn tighter and tighter and is projected down into the physical body as a stoppage of some kind.
Manly Palmer Hall said:
“All living organisms continually are exuding an insensible perspiration. These subtle emanations are actually extensions of etheric nerve force beyond the terminal circumference of the physical nervous system. The aura or physical magnetic field, therefore, is an emanation from the nerve terminals which surrounds the body with a dim but discernible radiance.
“These auric emanations from their nerve terminals with an appearance resembling fine fur. When intensely magnified, each separate emanation is visible as a stream of minute geometrically shaped particles pouring with great velocity from the skin’s surface.
“Not only is the human body itself surrounded by a field of these emanation, but each part of the body – organs, systems and secretions – have their own emanations or auras. Even the separate cells, molecules, atoms, and electrons are seen clairvoyantly as centers of fields of magnetic emanations.
“The colors, the extend, and the rates of vibration of these magnetic fields reveal the intrinsic natures of the structures from which they proceed. No important change can take place within the structure of any living organism without modifying its aura.”
