Our negative thoughts can wreck havoc on our physical and mental health. While the effects on our mental health are obvious, most of us ignore or do not understand how negativity takes a toll on our physical well being. We all know that negative emotions add to our stress levels, we are also aware of the fact the prolonged anxiety and stress can lead to heart diseases and many psychological problems, but what we don’t understand or are perhaps unaware of is the fact that negative emotions have physical manifestations on our health! Feelings like anger, insecurity, anxiety, jealousy etc can not only trigger aches, pains, or illness in the body but can also hamper our recovery.
To be able to understand how our negative emotions affect our health we need to be aware of the symbolism of our bodies. For instance our face symbolizes our outer appearance i.e. what we show to the world, any problem with the face would mean that we hold negative thoughts about how the world perceives us. Similarly our eyes represent our ability to see and perceive, a problem; poor vision may mean that we are stopping ourselves from acknowledging the truth or seeing things as they really are.
The following are some simple examples which illustrate how our negative feelings may be affecting our health:
When we do not express ourselves freely or are unable to stand up for ourselves it may affect the throat. The throat represents our ability to speak up. Any stifling of self-expression, creativity or our feelings can lead to problems like tonsillitis and sore throat. When the inability to express oneself is combined with bottled up anger it can lead to even more serious throat problems like laryngitis.
Our hearts symbolize our ability to love; heart problems could therefore be the result of holding yourself back from expressing love, self-loathing, negative self-talk and thinking, feeling you do not deserve to love or to be loved, resentment and hatred.
Our backs ‘support’ our bodies, any problems with the back could mean feeling scattered, fearing over-burdened with problems or fearing that life may not support you. A problem with the upper back could be related to stress or feeling your loved ones are not supporting you and lower back problems could be related to financial worries (feeling “unsupported” financially).
Our stomachs symbolize our ability to digest and assimilate. When you can’t accept (digest) a new idea or experience, your stomach may show symptoms. Indigestion problems could be related to not accepting change, new ideas, situations, or people in your life.
Using these examples as guidelines can help to understand the symbolic meaning of every body part. Once we understand this symbolism we can probe deeper into every illness and see if it’s cause lies somewhere in our thought process or if our thinking pattern is in any way hampering our recovery.

Every person has a unique aura that reflects their current condition. People who are sick or emotionally upset have weak shadowy auras, while healthy happy people have auras that are strong bright auras. A strong healthy aura is essential in blocking negative influences from draining energy and vitality from us.
There is no scientific definition for an aura. Many scientists are certain they do not exist. Others, while they are open-minded, can not describe auras in scientific terms. Some people present photographs as evidence of auras, but many skeptic declare them to be fakes. However, people with psychic abilities can see and read auras. It is possible that the halos you see in traditional religious art are actually auras. For this article, we accept the reality of auras as fact.
People with strong positive auras are naturally charismatic and attract others to them. They tend to be more successful in getting things done and getting support from other people. People with negative auras tend to be self-promoters that drive others away from them, and those with strong negative auras may be evil. It is possible that negative auras can become parasitic and literally steal energy from positive auras.
It is important to remember that the aura has little power of its own. It derives from a person’s internal condition – physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual. It is the tool by which psychic healers judge a person’s overall health and well-being. To have a strong positive aura means you have a strong healthy body, well-balanced psychological and emotional health, and a spiritual maturity and strength. A weak or negative aura indicates physical illness or disease, conflicted emotions, unresolved psychological issues, and/or limited spiritual development. Therefore, when you strengthen your aura, you are actually making progress in becoming a healthier, more well-balanced person with a stronger spiritual base.
Negative people can and do influence positive people. Psychics can actually see this in the interaction of auras where the negative person’s aura seems to drain the positive person’s aura of its energy and light. The positive person will feel it when it happens – they may feel more tired or weaker, their mood may lose some sparkle, or they may get a feeling of uneasiness or anxiety.
On the other hand, positive people can influence negative people as well. Their energy and vitality can literally flow into a person with a negative or weak aura. Psychic healers do this. They send, through their aura, positive energy to the negative person. And the stronger the positive person, the stronger their aura, the less likely they will be to let a negative person steal their energy.
No one wants to be around a person who is constantly pessimistic and depressed. That’s because the negativity is contagious. They negative person literally drains more positive people. But the stronger you are, the healthier and happier you are, the less vulnerable you will be to negative influences.
What causes negative auras?
People with negative auras are frequently seriously ill, whether it is due to a physical, mental, or spiritual disease. Drinking, smoking, and taking drugs can weaken your aura. Stress, conflict, and violence can, too. Too little exercise, mental stimulation, positive social interaction, or spiritual connection can produce a dark weak aura. And engaging in immoral activities can be disastrous – crime, deviant behaviors, and misuse of your fellow man can produce an aura as dark and thick as night. Negative auras can be extremely powerful, reflecting the inner turmoil that creates them, and they can influence the people around them in very serious ways.
Some people believe that negative energy isn’t always associated with a living human being. Restless spirits of people who passed away before they were able to resolve conflicts are one example of a negative entity that can still influence the living. And just as there are positive spirits, like angels, there are negative ones. No one can prove or disprove their existence, but many people have experienced the powerful effects of having negative entities influencing their lives.
How can I protect myself from negative energy and auras?
People with positive auras, on the other hand, are better able to withstand negative influences. Their good health is a strong protective barrier, and they less susceptible to drains on their energy and vitality. If you want to have a stronger, more positive aura, you need to become a stronger, more positive person.
There are also techniques we can use to protect ourselves from negative energies and entities and maintain a healthy aura. All of these techniques serve to help become more powerful in our psychic abilities and more sensitive to external influences that might harm us.
An important first step is to learn to use and trust your intuition. For example, have you ever been involved in a conversation with someone and felt a knot form in your stomach? This knot was telling you that this person is negative and may be draining your energy. Relying on those internal messages more may be one way to protect your positive energy and aura.
However, many people have trouble distinguishing intuitive knowledge from emotional reaction. When you begin to develop your intuitive skills, you must take care that you’re not letting your feelings about a situation masquerade as intuition. There is no school or class for telling the difference. The best way to learn is through trial and error, being willing to make mistakes, and through self-knowledge.
Looking into your motivations is important. Perhaps you got that knot in your stomach because you wanted to punch the person in the mouth. That is not intuition. It is emotion. You are the only person who can interpret these signs, and self-knowledge is an important tool in differentiating intuition from irrational emotions.
Another way to become stronger and healthier, and to have a strong positive aura, is to avoid things that weaken or harm you. Avoid junk food, alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. They weaken your defenses and personal resolve. They cloud intuition and increase emotions. Counter-balancing the avoidance of negative things is incorporating more healthy things into your daily routine – exercise, nutritious foods, positive social experiences, prayer and meditation.
Meditative activities strengthen you and your aura. Listening to soothing music or reading an inspirational or uplifting book helps clear your mind and body of negative influences and builds your resistance to them. Meditation helps you tune out externalities and tune in to your own strengths and wisdom. Meditation is a very important and rewarding tool for becoming healthier and having a stronger, more positive aura.
You can also use some objects that may have a healing or protective effect. Amulets are thought to fend off negative spirits. They come in many shapes, forms, and sizes and are made of a variety of materials. Used since time began by native and primitive peoples, they can be worn as jewelry or carried in a pocket or purse. Some people use specific stones as amulets. Popular stones for this purpose include onyx, hematite, double-terminated quartz, and aragonite. They are also called protection stones.
If you feel that you are being attacked and someone or something is trying to drain your energy, you might try taking a physical position to block it. The point is to protect yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually at the same time. Take a position that blocks out external influences by crossing your arms in front of your chest, cross your legs. Make all your fingers on your left hand touch the fingers on your right hand. Close your eyes, clear your mind, and take long slow even breaths until you begin to feel comfortable and protected.
Closing yourself off in this way will not only protect you from negative influences, it will stop your energy from reaching other people. It’s a way to take a psychic break and allow you to refresh and strengthen your own body and spirit. Your aura will, in turn, become stronger, more light, and more resistant to negative influences.
