human aura is the energy field that
surrounds the physical body. It surrounds you in all directions. It is
three dimensional. In a healthy individual, it makes an elliptical or

masters could extend outward from the body for several miles. It is
believed that this is one of the reasons they could draw such large
of followers in any area where they traveled. It is worth noting that a
common depiction of many masters included the halo, a portion of the
that is most easily seen by the average individual.

individuals draw or suck off the
energy of others. Most of the time this happens because the individuals
involved do not realize it. In many cases they are using your energies
to supplement their own rather than building up their own. All they may
realize is that, when they finish talking with you or being with you,

and you should not allow it.

this person of being a vampire or say that you will not speak to him or
her again because he or she is sucking off your energy. If you do, this
person will think you have gone off the deep end. In that case, your

page is all it takes. You cross your feet at the ankles and bring your
thumbs and fingers together so they are touching. (If you wish, you can
use just your thumbs and index fingers.) This close your circuit. Your
energy will not go out from you.

who drains you, assume this posture. Simply rest your hands casually on
your lap, touch your fingers and cross your ankles. It is casual and

phone with such people.
