Let Your Aura Shine


Let Your Aura Shine

Everyone knows there is cause and effect to everything in life, but few people realize that your thoughts are the cause of something and the experience you have is the effect.  The true definition of cause is “a person or thing that gives rise to an action, phenomenon, or condition.” And the true definition of effect is  “change that is a result or consequence of an action or other cause”.  Let me emphasis, the result of an action and that action being your thought. So you see, your thoughts are very important.

If you complain and continue to talk about things in your life that you are unhappy with, you have to realize that you and only you can make this change and it starts with your thoughts, otherwise negative energy and events starts to connect with you and things spiral out of control. This is available to you 24 hours a day and 7 days a week without fail, for any given situation that you want to manifest, correct or change.  You don’t have to wait for someone to give you the green light to go ahead and have a better life, you have that power available right here and now to do that and here is the scientific explanation to back this up.

The solar plexus is located at the back of the stomach and it channels our body functions. It’s also the true core of our energy. So we have almost a burning sun in our stomachs. This is why we feel so sick to our stomachs when something awful happens, which means something or someone, just closed the blinds on that shining sun.  When we have a thought and the brain (conscious mind) decides that this thought is true, it then sends it down to the solar plexus, where the solar plexus accepts this thought as final and true as well.  Then the solar plexus takes action on whatever that final thought is and it creates a feeling from that thought, good or bad. The subconscious mind doesn’t reason or argue with the final thought, it simply acts on it.  This is why hypnosis has proven to help people. The power of suggestion by the conscious mind is a very powerful thing because the body (which the subconscious controls) will follow suit. Now here is where it gets tricky. The solar plexus is the main point where all of our energy meets and all of our energy is distributed from. This energy is thrown out into the atmosphere that surrounds our body, which creates an aura. When a person has an aura, you may think of that person as charismatic or having a magnetic or strong presence that other people can feel whenever they are around them. Your aura helps to pull Universal energy to you. One person that had a strong aura that comes to mind, is Princess Diana. Princess Diana was a true humanitarian who was known to have a strong presence that calmed and soothed the victims and refugees that she visited. As she entered the room, the people immediately felt relief with her sheer presence alone and it comforted them. All of her compassion and love for people really showed in Diana’s energetic aura, because her solar plexus was filled with all kinds of wonderful, loving and positive energy. This gave her a kind of glow whenever they saw her and a glow that refugees and victims felt whenever they were near her and it was soothing to them. They were tapping into Diana’s positive energy and aura.

This of course can go the other way too. If you are holding bad negative energy in your solar plexus, then undesired negative things start to happen and nothing gets accomplished. This is also where disease of your mind and body can begin as well, if you’re not careful and carry it there for too long. Depleted energy can weaken both the mind and the body, and this is why mindful people who follow positive and negative attraction laws take the necessary steps to heal their mind or body so they can bring the good energy back into their lives.

The Universal energy which is omnipresent, connects to your own energy at the solar plexus, and when the energy is positive, the power is unstoppable. There is no limit to your creativity or ability to manifest the very things you need or want when you have the combined power of the Universe behind you.

When you “allow” positive, productive and loving thoughts to come into your mind, the solar plexus expands. When negative thoughts enter your mind, the solar plexus contracts. And the absolute worst emotion that really shuts the solar plexus down, is fear. This is why people become “frozen with fear”. You truly are frozen, when you allow fear to take over your mind. It kills creativity, faith, passion and action. Fear is the most debilitating emotion that you can have in any given situation. Often times you will hear about survivor stories, when someone in a dire and life threatening situation says, I didn’t panic and I remained calm. Because they were able to overcome the fear, they could think clearly, move accordingly and was able to get out of their situation miraculously, with the help of Universal positive energy’s assistance. We shouldn’t change jobs or quit the job we hate because of fear we will go broke and wind up on a street corner selling pencils.  We shouldn’t avoid asking the object of our affection out on a date for fear of rejection. We shouldn’t stop pursuing our dreams, because our parents or family won’t approve. We shouldn’t avoid doing a serious hobby for fear we will be laughed at and the list goes on and on. No one should have to live their lives in fear, because when fearful thinking directs your life, it takes over and then you go nowhere, fast. It shuts down progress, it shuts down truth, it shuts down dreams, happiness, progress and rational creative thinking. They did a survey many years ago with elderly people asking them the one thing in their lives that they regretted the most and almost all of them answered, that they wished they had taken more chances and pursued their dreams. How sad to reach that point at the end of your life and realize maybe you didn’t have anything to fear at all.

Don’t let fear run your life for you, replace it with passion, desire and faith. I have had several situations in my twenties, where I wasn’t sure where my next meal was coming from, or if I would be able to pay my rent and it left me in a constant state of fear. Something I had to overcome in even the worst situations, otherwise I wouldn’t be here writing this blog! Having to overcome fear had been a way of life for me for a very long time, until I changed it. The way I learned to overcome that was to think of the worst possible thing that could happen, which often times wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be when I was thinking about it head on. If I was really broke and not sure where the rent money was coming from, I would try to imagine myself out begging for money or applying for help at a homeless coalition. Deep in my heart and in my mind I could not picture that happening at all, so therefore it would not happen and sure enough, help would come just in the nick of time consistently. If I can visualize something NOT happening and it doesn’t, then I can visualize something happening and it will. So you use this visualization to set the details of the outcome that helps you or benefits you and this will help you to face your fear. To sum this up; if we think about failure and fear and those fears and failures consistently come true, why wouldn’t that work just the opposite for success and faith to come true as well? It absolutely works, but we have been trained to focus on the negative and fear, so switch your brain around and go for the opposite of that the next time you are in trouble and watch what happens.

I lived in South Dakota for about a year when I was just 19 years old. I was trying to make a living training horses and had a barn I used that belonged to a training partner of mine. This barn was about 16 miles from the town where I was living. Back then, I was driving an old Dodge Dart car that would barely start in the mornings, especially in the dead of winter. Well winter never stopped me from trying to get to the barn and work for two reasons, one we had an indoor arena that we could ride in and secondly, my very existence depended on it. I wouldn’t be able to make rent or buy groceries if I wasn’t training people’s horses year round. I would travel to the barn every day, chugging slowly down this small 2 lane highway and regardless of the weather, in my unreliable Dodge Dart piece of junk car.

One day it was about 25 below zero and the wind was blowing hard. I really should have stayed home that day, but of course I didn’t.  On top of it being really cold out, the heater in that car had gone out, so I had no heat! Then like a total idiot, I decided to head up to the barn right after I got out of the shower, so my hair was soaking wet while I was driving. Not a smart decision, because the intelligent people stayed home that day, so only a few people were out on the highway at all. Sure enough on my way up to the barn, the car stalled on the side of the highway. Now this was back in a time when people did not have cell phones. There I sat in a freezing car, with wet hair and no heater and it was 25 below with the wind chill and blowing snow. I sat there for a few minutes and realized that no one was coming to save me, because hardly anyone was on the highway and the few that were, did not even bother to stop and see if I was ok. I looked off into the distance and saw a farm house about 1/2 mile away on the other side of a snowy field that was about 1 to 2 feet deep. It was just sitting there with its lights dimly glowing through the blowing snow and while I stared at it, I told myself that if I got out and ran as hard as I could, that I could cross that field to get to that house before freezing to death. Then I thought about it even further, that even though my situation was not good, I knew today was not going to be the day I die and I wasn’t going to leave the world in this stupid situation I had gotten myself into. So I couldn’t visualize that happening at all. I could make it, if I really pushed myself and kept my wet head covered with my hood. As I got out of the car and started across the highway towards that snowy field, a car appeared out of seemingly nowhere being driven by a nice family that just happened to be out there that day. I had not seen anyone coming as I crossed the road and suddenly there they were, pulling over on the side of the highway and offering me a ride to safety. I was so grateful and amazed that this family came along at the right time to save me from that horrible hike I was about to make. My solar plexus energy was burning in full force that day and The Universal energy connected with mine and aligned the events that saved me.

I was born and raised mostly in Minnesota, the youngest of 5 girls. I never went onto college as my sisters did, because the only two things I had ever wanted to do was work with horses or pursue music and I figured I would not need a conventional education for either of those. I chose to pursue a career in horse training three days after graduating from high school and did this for many years. Horribly misguided by others I met along the way, I eventually became disillusioned with the horse industry and it's lack of respect for the horses, so I moved on from that and I never looked back. I then went into music, which was my second love and was an aspiring singer/songwriter part time for another 10 years while I worked administrative jobs on the side. This also went to the wayside when it did not take me where I wanted to go. These days I am married and currently live in Colorado with my husband, two dogs and a horse. In looking back on my life I could never understand why I would get so close to reaching my dreams and goals, but then watch them slip away as easily as they had come. As a young horse trainer starting out, I had two very good opportunities to work for a woman who was former world champion rodeo star and also for a close relative of another rodeo star, who had been a world champion many times over. I rejected both of these opportunities early on, but with great regret later, because my head was not in the right place to accept them. Even though I had manifested both opportunities during that time and without realizing what I was doing, was unable to keep them. The same thing happened in the music industry. I had the experience of recording demos in both Austin Texas and Nashville at separate times, and I was given the opportunity to be represented by a few producers in Nashville as well, both eventually going nowhere. These hit and miss opportunities that never really got off the ground, soon became an up and down journey that I went through for several years, until I started studying Universal laws of manifestation. Early on, the first book my cousin had handed me about negative and positive attraction was indeed inspiring, but telling someone to simply think positively is not going to leave a lasting impression, so I fell back into my old ways of finding opportunity and losing opportunity. Years later, I eventually moved onto another book and things went a little deeper, but I was still not quite “getting it” because I had so many questions and felt things were missing in the authors explanation of how this all works. I eventually found The Master Key System written by Charles Haanel and that's when things really came together for me. His explanation of why Universal and Natural Laws of Attraction work by bringing science and spirituality together, instead of separating them as we have been taught, really made a lot of sense to me. All of my questions were answered and the holes were filled in. It was the connection of science and spirituality that made this book a little different than the others. Nothing I had read, had gone quite that deep before. I started to use The Master Key System and saw that opportunities were coming to me a lot more easily than in the past and I was able to keep them. In using these principles, I launched my first successful small business when I was well into my 40’s, as an equine massage therapist and at a time when I thought that I was going to be stuck working mindless admin jobs for the rest of my life. It was amazing how it brought me full circle into working with horses again. I have continued to use The Master Key Principles for every part of my life, both physically and mentally. I am a lifetime, work in progress student and a true believer of these wonderful methods.

  1. I’ve been in life threatening situations like this and never once considered that it was the end. I just couldn’t see it. Even though my family was standing around me in tears looking at me like it was the last time they were going to see me. I found my self consoling them.
