All living things have seven energy center in their bodies. Each energy center works like a fuse box for all of the components of that area of the body. When the energy is flowing strongly, the area is in health. If the energy gets interrupted the area may move into dis-ease. As with a fuse box in your home, if the circuit is overloaded, the lights in that area of your home will not work. And like a home fuse box, just because the energy may be interrupted, it does not mean that it cannot be fixed, just that it is temporally out of service. By utilizing this information, we can determine where the energy flow is clogged in the body, and help restore that area to full service.

Our emotions are the electricity of the body. When an emotion is out of balance for an extended period of time, it is as if the electricity is not moving into that area. Again think of your home…If there is to much power going to your microwave oven, eventually you will blow a fuse or your oven will break. The same is true of our bodies.
If your heart is broken, say do to the loss of a strong love, and you cannot or will not work to deal with this extreme emotion, eventually you may encounter your bodies form of an energy overload: heart or lung disease, breast cancer, upper back pain, shoulder issues etc. These are all in the area of the heart chakra, and may be affected if the emotional issue is not addressed.

How long is to long to let an issue go unresolved? Each individuals level of tolerance is different. What are the other factors in the persons life? Are they sleeping and eating well? Do they have other stresses in their lives? We all are under daily stress. How we cope with these stresses and our belief systems around the circumstances of our lives are what affect our chakra’s and therefore our health.

Tool to read a Chakra – Pendulum:

A pendulum is any object hung from a chain, cord, string. Take a few deep breaths and be sure to be standing firmly on the ground. Relax and touch the animal with one hand while holding the pendulum over the chakra with the other hand. The cord should be about 6″ long. Hold the hanging object about 3″ above the chakra (see chart) and you will see the pendulum begin to spin or move in various directions(see chart).

The direction that tells you that maximum health is in that area, is in a clock wise direction. Keep in mind that a chakra reading is a moment in time. Meaning that, if you do a reading on someone and say that the heart chakra is open, and then they get a phone call and their boyfriend breaks up with them, a second reading may show that the chakra is now closed. There are also various degrees of closure. Also the amount of time that the closure has been in place is important.


Your aura is the energy that surrounds every thing, living and non living. Non living things have a slight aura that is equal to the energy being emitted-a hot table will put out a stronger aura that a cold table, a wooded table will put out a stronger aura than a glass table. With living creatures, there are seven layers to this egg shaped energy.
Each layer is directly associated to a chakra, beginning with the base chakra. Therefore this first layer of your aura is the one closest to your body. Each additional layer will move further and further from your body, completing the sphere with the seventh layer which is associated with the crown chakra. Most humans that are “healthy” will have an aura that extends approximately fourteen feet from the body in all directions. If you are feeling depressed, tired, ill, you may use the expressions of “I feel empty” or “I feel drained” these expressions
are about the state of your aura!

Our auras contain all of the information that is available about our bodies, personalities and emotions. Therefore, when you first meet someone or some living thing, you will get an immediate impression of that individual. If your aura “reads” that a living thing is “healthy” you will most likely allow that being into your “space” If you do not
approve of what that person is putting out into its aura you will want to keep your distance. This explains why it seems so easy to be close to some beings and so uncomfortable to be near others. In a way this is “judging a book by its cover” the cover being the aura. Remember that the aura holds all of the information about that person-past and present, so what you may be picking up could be a bad mood (example -anger=danger), a lack of health physically (example-disease=contagious) or emotionally (example-energy hungry=a manipulator)
All animals have auras, and all animals use this energy reading ability to survive in nature. We as humans have learned to disregard this important information in order to keep ourselves form quickly passing judgment on an individual. This unspoken law in turn allows us to be accepted without judgment. Keep in mind however, that the
information is still there, and it is rare that a person comes to find that their first impressions were wrong.

Knowing this about ourselves in turn gives us the responsibility of learning about ourselves and becoming aware of what we are putting out to other people and living things. How many times have you visited your horse to find that he knows exactly what kind of mood you are in the moment you walk into the barn, and then proceeds to take advantage of your distraction to manipulate the training session or visit? Animals are always aware of
the energy in our auras! Beware of the person that your dog doesn’t like! (unless its the mailman-thats another story!)

Tool to read an Aura – Dowsing Rods:

Dowsing rods are any metal rod bent into an L shape. Usually in a 2 to 1 ratio, the handle being the shorter part. Take a few deep breaths, and stand firmly on the ground. Hold the rods loosely in your hands, as if you are holding a bird. Your thumbs should not be touching the top of the rod and your fingers should be just supporting the rods in a horizontal position. In other words the long part of the rods should be parallel to the ground. Have your living thing (horse, human, tree) standing about 20 feet in front of you. Holding the rods shoulder width apart in front of you, parallel to the ground, begin to slowly walk towards the living thing. At some stage the rods will open, pointing towards the left and right. This is a level of the aura that you are seeing. The level that works in showing body discomfort is about 5-10″ from the body. If the rods are held within this range and touch the being, this shows discomfort. Moving away from the body shows strength. The level of discomfort can vary, from a high degree to very minor. The lack of energy in the aura is an indicator of a problem being present. It gives you a place to begin asking questions.

As in all techniques, practice is needed. Remembering to breath is
very important!
