This lecture is for discussion as not only a preview to our next section but also to have you be able to think how a famous philosophical statement relates to the aura. Please see the included text in the supplemental resources.

I Think Therefore I Am.

  1. Energy, the fabric of the Universe
  2. Thoughts and emotions (electrical charge), create a cascade of reactions from electrical to chemical
  3. Body (magnetic), physical manifested thoughts and emotions (yours, others, environment)
Generating the Aura

What ways does the aura "physically" communicate it's information?

  • By color (most commonly known)
  • By Touch (hand sensing, most commonly done by energy healers i.e. Reiki Practitioners)
  • By sound
  • By Smell
These are not usually picked up by our physical senses because....
first it's unseen energy

Energy Sensing - Interpreting the Field
3 Lectures 06:03
  • You don't have to "see" an aura - you can "feel" it - rubbing hands together excercise
  • My experiences:
    • Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there (can't see photons but they are there)
    • Danger in not knowing energy is all around you even though you can't see it.
Energy Sensing 101

  • Quieting the mind
  • Deep breathing (like meditation)
  • Be open to subtleties

***Always drink enough water. When doing energy work you will dehydrate faster than normal***

Preparation for Practicing Energy Sensing

Demonstration of hand sensing

  1. Try do practice on at least 3 people & note your energy sensing observations on the included form in the supplemental resources. Please use a separate form for each person.
  2. Ask for their permission first.
  3. Do your session preparation work (in text from last lecture)
  4. Make sure you include feelings or thoughts you had while doing the energy sensing as they may be very relevant to your subject
  5. Go over your findings with your subject as this will clarify what different sensations mean to you for future practice.
  6. Continue to practice and also include different subjects such as plants and maybe very surprised.
  7. Always thank your willing subject even if it is a plant or pet & only do willing subjects.

Putting it All Together (Without Technology)


Choose a person (someone you have not choosen before) & ask them if they are willing to let you do a full aura and chakra reading - get permission.

Do your preliminary session preparation (from the energy sensing session)

It is best if your client is lying down for this session but they can stand or sit.


When completed please go over your findings with them & thank them.

By going over the session with them you will gain valuable insights into what you were picking up from them.

Energy & Consciousness Instructor

Hi! I'm Karen. My life's purpose is to teach about the LIGHT which is about consciousness, energy and how we interact with it, how it promotes healing and also the new science regarding it. I have spent over 20 years researching and working with my patients to develop the wisdom in my courses. Plus I have done over a thousand aura readings and am a Reiki Master during those many years. In addition I have a deep interest in philosophy, neuroscience and psychology including Emotional Intelligence. I have also been surrounded by Electricians all my life so I have been immersed in how that physical knowledge works with living beings such as me and you.

In addition I have earned a Degree in Education to ensure I get the message out loud and clear to all who are interested. Also, I have had the honor of doing many speaking engagements on the subject of light and energy not to mention authoring several research papers and a book on the Aura.

I very much look forward to serving, sharing and teaching with Udemy to all of you.
