The Evolution and Revolution of our Energy Bodies

The Evolution and Revolution of Our Energy Bodies
By Kala Ambrose

The experience of seeing auras is a complex subject to unravel. I’ve seen auras around people since I was a child. It never occurred to me that others did not see auras as well. For example, when you walk outside and it’s a sunny day and the light is so bright that it makes you squint, do you run to other people and ask, “Do you see the light outside, does it make you close your eyes a little, is the light yellow in color to you?” You don’t ask these questions, you just assume that what you experience is what others are also experiencing.

My first inkling that I was seeing something different occurred in elementary school. We had been assigned to draw a picture of our home and family. While coloring each family member, I colored outside the lines portraying the colors I saw around each person. I also colored around the tree I had drawn, as I see the auras of plants and trees. When my picture was critiqued, I was told that I had not done a good job since I had colored outside of the lines. As an empath, I picked up that the teacher was very displeased with my work, but I could not understand why. That brief conversation opened the door to my eventual understanding that others did not see colors around other people the way that I did. This was the beginning of my journey to read auras and determine what the colors and images that I saw in the auras meant.

While it is fairly easy to learn to see an aura, understanding what the colors and images surrounding the aura represent, is something entirely different all together. To discern what the colors and shapes mean around a person at a particular time requires intuition, practice and an understanding of the spiritual planes and fields around the body.

During the last year of his life, Edgar Cayce began work with his friend Thomas Sugrue to write a book about his work with auras. This book was intended to reveal a full discourse on auras and colors, including Cayce’s notes on how he learned via observation with his clients, the meanings of specific colors and shapes in the aura. Unfortunately, his health took a turn for the worse and he died early that year in 1945.

Due to Cayce’s untimely demise, the compilation of his work and study of the auras was complied into a twenty-page pamphlet entitled Auras: An Essay on the Meaning of Colors. To this day, Auras is a popular reference guide containing helpful information including how the colors in the aura are connected with the planets and musical notes. This pamphlet is still available for sale through the A.R.E. catalog and bookstore.

From my experience in reading auras over the years, I’ve found that they are almost as unique as fingerprints. While some characteristics are similar in form including swirls and shades of color, each individual creates a distinctive pattern, which appears in their auric field. This field is comprised by the individual’s thoughts and emotions, as well as manifestations of energy coming into the body and thought forms, which have been around the person for some time.

People, who are able to view auras, see and sense them at different levels. Some are more attuned to see physical dis-ease before it enters the physical body. They may also see emotional distress in the auric field, or glimpses of the akashic records being worked through in this lifetime or they may just see the energy in motion around the person, which reflects their general wellbeing.

In my work as an esoteric wisdom teacher, I teach students how to read auras. We discuss the types of auras, their condition and how to heal an aura that has become damaged due to shock, stress or other harmful situations. I continue to experience new revelations when seeing auras and giving aura readings for people.

In the past ten years, I’ve seen new structures around the auras, that I do not recall having seen before. My theory on this new design in the auric field is that we are evolving at a fast pace and our energy bodies are being attuned right before our very eyes. It is happening so rapidly that the energy bodies around us are being reconstructed and are opening up to allow more light and energy to flow through our bodies now, more than ever before.

In the past four years, I have seen this gain even greater momentum, and the structures, which surround the auric field and energy bodies appear different in people according to their age and state of well-being. What I have seen forming in all stages of life is overwhelmingly positive and awe inspiring.

Auras, like so many natural gifts given to us, are powerful conductors of energy. Used consciously and with an understanding of their ability to be a pure vessel to hold the light, we can transform ourselves body, mind and spirit. In many ways they represent the symbolic sarcophagus, allowing us the opportunity and sacred space in which to regenerate, transmute and transform.

Color Me Happy

Color Me Happy

By Peggy Joy Cross

 Shui Banner

Enough of all the scientific jargon about cones and light wave vibrations, and how our eyes, brains, and nervous systems process color. It is our reaction that is important as we choose the colors in our lives. Do we love the color of a new dress or newly painted room? How does the color make us feel? The answer should be, I love this color because it is energizing, peaceful, fun, inspiring, or whatever word best fits how you feel. If you think you don’t care about colors, you may be surprised to learn about their affect at the level of your subconscious.


Edgar Cayce spoke about certain greens that could almost make a person ill and others that could heal. There are myriads of books about color and there are color therapists. The bottom line is to have colors around us that make us feel good and that support our personal activities which could include entertaining, love making, eating, sleeping, reading, playing, meditating, as well as all the various aspects of our work life.  


Color affects us in different ways depending on our prior life experiences, our personality, and our physical as well as emotional health. When we are depressed, or ill, or stressed, our reaction to color and our choice of color will be quite different from when we are feeling vital and engaged in a productive life. If a particular color does not make your heart sing, don’t use it. My office is painted in, to put it mildly, an unusual color scheme, and it does make my heart sing. The first few days after a friend and I completed this amazing transformation, I repeatedly returned to the room for the joy I felt as I gazed at the colors. Even now when I walk into this room I smile and my energy lifts.


As an interior designer, I find it much easier to choose colors for other people than for myself. This color scheme took me over a year to finalize. First I thought about tone on tone stripes, a look I have always loved both in fabric and on walls. The contrast of the matte and the gloss provides subtle yet sufficient contrast to be interesting. But no, this would not do for a room where I could be spending many hours each day. All those stripes would be too busy, even in one color.


Another consideration to which I gave serious attention was using relatively small, different colored stripes while keeping white for the background. I would create my own custom color wheel. That idea never got off the ground since, as I recall, it seemed like way too much work as well as being too busy. So the months passed. I was searching for a creative answer to my color conundrum while working in an ordinary white space that was anything but inspiring or energizing.


Then, I remembered the happiest space I ever painted. This was my boys’ bedroom in the mid 70’s. I had purchased a fabulous bunk bed for them–a fire engine red elephant with trappings of yellow, blue and green. That was it! I used those four colors, one for each wall, to paint their room. Poor things–they probably never slept. What did I know then?


Today, my office is four colors and not for the faint of heart to be sure. These colors are pure–without tint or hue to lighten or gray their impact. Entering, I am greeted by a violet wall that is so yummy it feels like a hug. It was many weeks before I could bear to hang artwork on that wall because it would cover the gorgeous color. The adjacent window wall is brilliant reddish orange, a beautiful frame for the trees, marsh and water beyond. I sit at my desk facing the most uplifting of vibrant lemon yellows and the remaining wall is a perfect, gem-like turquoise. I love my office colors and they make my heart sing –- Color Me Happy.

Predictions from Edgar Cayce: Erupting Volcanoes and Multiple Earthquakes

Predictions from Edgar Cayce:  Erupting Volcanoes and Multiple Earthquakes


By John Van Auken


We know that Edgar Cayce correctly predicted the stock market crash and Great Depression of 1929, the beginning of World War II, the shifting of the Earth’s magnetic poles (which scientists confirmed the beginnings of on a 2004 NOVA TV show titled, “Magnetic Storm”), and the coming of El Nino and La Nina, stating that changing temperatures of the deep currents in the Pacific Ocean would affect weather patterns. Now many people are closely watching the volcanoes Vesuvius and Pelee because of Cayce’s warning about their unseen connection with the fault lines along the southern coast of California.Mt. Vesuvius


There is a growing sense that volcanic activity and the quaking shifts of the massive tectonic plates of the Earth are interconnected around the planet. When an earthquake or eruption occurs in one part of the planet, it is followed by an eruption or quake in another part, sometimes on the opposite side of the planet. Cayce’s visions seem to confirm this. For example, he predicted that when we see noticeable eruptions in the long-quiet volcanoes of Vesuvius or Pelee, then three months later there will major earthquakes along the southern coast of California that will cause an inundation of the land from the Salt Lake in Utah to the southern portions of Nevada.


Mt. Vesuvius is the infamous volcano that destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii in 79 A.D. It is located east of Naples, Italy. It is considered to be one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Mt. Pelee is in an island arc of the Caribbean called Martinique, in the Lesser Antilles between Puerto Rico and Venezuela. In 1902 the explosion of this volcano was one of the worst in recorded history. It is near the city of St. Pierre, which was destroyed in the 1902 eruption, and then rebuilt. Pelee erupted again from 1929 to 1932. It is among the deadliest volcanoes on the planet.


Mt. Pelee


If either one of these two volcanoes erupts, Cayce predicts that earthquakes will follow three months later in the southern coast of California, and these quakes will cause a damaging flood from Utah to southern Nevada.


Amazingly, Edgar Cayce tied these prophecies to the prophecy in the Bible made by the archangel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel, stating that “These changes in the Earth will come to pass, for the ‘time and times and half times’ [Gabriel’s timetable] are at an end, and there begin the periods of readjustments.” Cayce sees these Earth changes are the “birth pains” to a coming new era when the Earth will enter a long period of higher consciousness and soul growth, in which brotherly and sisterly care for all people will prevail. Following the changes, which he sees as cleansings, he sees a golden age for the inhabitants of our blue and white planet.

Confucius Say…

Confucius Say…
By John Van Auken

Among the many famous historical persons, Confucius ranks near the top of the list. His wisdom is quoted in today. Here are a few of his many insightful quotes.

Confucius say:
Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
Confucius say:
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius say:
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
Confucius say:
Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.

Confucius Say. . . This last saying foreshadows Jesus’ Golden Rule: Whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. (Matt. 7:12)

Confucius was born over 2,500 years ago, in 551 BC, and yet we are still talking about him today. Even the Edgar Cayce readings include this ancient sage in their teachings. Cayce actually recommended some Confucian books to Mr. 900, the guy who got the most readings from Cayce, 437! Even more impressive, three Cayce readings mention Confucius’ soul/spirit in a list of soul from the other side that would help Cayce give some particularly difficult readings. Here’s one of them:

“The forces gathered here may be used in gaining this concept. As ye seek, ask first if all these are present: Lamech, Confucius, Tamah, Halaliel, Hebe, Ra, Ra-Ta, John.” (5756-10)

Of course, the Edgar Cayce readings where open to all teachings that presented one God and one collective of the Children of God, as in these two:

Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.“Whether in Buddhism, Mohammedanism, Confucianism, Platoism, or what—these have been added to much from that as was given by Jesus in His walk in Galilee and Judea. ‘Know, O Israel, the Lord thy God is one!’ whether this is directing one of the Confucius' thought, Brahman thought, Buddha thought, Mohammedan thought; these are as teachers or representatives.” (364-9).
“Again in that of Confucius, who gave to his peoples in his day the beginning of an understanding of the wisdom of [the] Divine.” (900-15)

In one fascinating reading, Mr. 900 described a scene in Confucius’ life that related to overcoming fear by doing, by living your soul’s purpose. Here’s that passage. As you read, remember that Mr. 900 is speaking, not Cayce; but Cayce does reply in the affirmative to 900’s perspective.

“So long as I bend my will to serve creation, to serve Man, that the latter may the better achieve eternal life (as in “feed His lambs”), so long am I immune to harm—nothing shall hurt or stop me. I lean upon the unseen arm that guides me. Confucius remained unafraid when he ran into a gang of robbers. Others were killed, he was not. ‘I have a mission to perform, a message to give and I will be protected until it is accomplished,’ he said. In spite of dangers and risk he came thru.” (900-243)
Finally, Cayce once asked a religious questioner to consider the following:
Why the teachings of Confucius or his axioms and lessons, and those of Jesus, are parallel.” (1473-1)

Let’s close a few more of the sage’s views:

Confucius say:
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
Confucius say:
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
Confucius say:
He who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.
Confucius say:
If you shoot for the stars and hit the moon, it's OK. But you've got to shoot for something. A lot of people don't even shoot.
Confucius say:
I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I understand.
Confucius say:
Heaven means to be one with God.
