The Aura Effect
How thoughts, music, and other people affect our energy fields—and how our energy fields affect the world.
In the summer of 2000, after investigating the afterlife for only three years, I had my first experience with a spiritual counselor named Trish Whynot. She wasn’t an expert on life after death, but I was curious about her use of meditation in her practice. At the time, the only experiences I had with meditation always precipitated me falling asleep. Despite my reason for experiencing a session with Trish, she showed me something I had never seen before.
Trish and I were talking about energy, which led her to bring up the subject of auras. I admitted that I wasn’t convinced that auras were real, upon which Trish walked over to a table and picked up a pouch. She pulled the strangest-looking metal contraption I’ve ever seen from the pouch, which she called an “aura meter.”
Trish showed me her aura meter. It had a handle attached to a very sensitive spring, which was then attached to a metal pointer. She walked to the far end of the room with this gadget, pointing it at me as I sat on a sofa. She slowly walked toward me, explaining that the pointer would rise in the air when it hit my energy field—my aura. She said it would act as if the outside wall of my aura created a resistance that pushed this sensitive instrument upward and backward. I sat there skeptically, waiting to see how Trish would unconsciously manipulate the aura meter to do what she wanted.
