Shumsky discusses important concepts relating
to energy flows. The power of persuasion transfers
Prana energy. Examples of famous presidential speakers
include Abe Lincoln, the Roosevelts, John F. Kennedy
and even Ronald Reagan. Franklin Roosevelt was quite
adept at transferring positive energy and a sense of
wellness of being in his famous fireside chats.
Shumsky explains each of the 14 chakras or energy
flows which include the Muladhara (root),
Svadhishthana (the self), Manipura (burning digestion),
Anahata (silence unstuck), Hrit (heart), Vishuddha
(purification), Talu (nectar of immortality, Ajna
(command center), Manas (mind), Indu (moon),
Nirvana (ego dissolution), Guru (teacher), Sahasrara
( thousandfold) and the Bindu which is the energy center.
During thousands of near-death experiences, survivors
recall seeing subtle bodies of light clearly. In fact,
orbs have been witnessed emanating from dying people
at the point of death.
Shumsky even provides a roadmap of our auras. The basic
aura elements include thr gross body, the subtle body,
the causal body and higher bodies. According to the
author, the subtle body does not change after death.
It has working senses, knowing senses and energy centers.
The higher self clothed in the subtle body moves to a
higher body so that your earthly capacities and tendencies
endure even after death. Dr. Duncan MacDougall MD
calculated that the soul weighs half an ounce which is the
difference in weight just before death and right afterward.
Research into the human energy field has focused on a
luminous glow around living organisms differing slightly
between men and women.The densest portion of the aura is
around the head and shoulders. The energy field tends to
be greatest around the waist.
The author mentioned a very controversial aspect to life
after death for some people. They do not enter into the
Divine Light for a number of reasons which include
unawareness of death, disbelief in an afterlife, shame
from committing suicide, vengeance, unfihished business
on earth and disunion from organ donations.
The Power of Auras is a fascinating work on our higher order
existence, as well as life of the subtle body after death.
The book is well researched with an extensive bibliography
of books, journals and internet references.
