Have you ever fell in love? Of course you did. Can you recall this moment? Close your eyes, take few breaths and try to get back to this moment.
How did it make you feel? How this feeling responds to your body? Do you feel a tickle somewhere on your face? Is your heartbeat getting faster? Do you feel warmer?
In Witchcraft we know that Emotions affect your Aura by changing its “color” which actually means changing its “radiation”. This change of your Aura (this complex energy matrix which surrounds us) is now proven as science managed to “monitor” all the changes that occur when an emotion fills our heart.
A team of scientists in Finland asked several people to map out where they felt different emotions on their bodies, they found that the results were surprisingly consistent, even amongst different cultures and traditions. You see our brain de-codes feelings as separate chemical particles – the hormones -which interact with your nervous system. There are uncountable inhibitors in your body ready to take this decoded message and act accordingly.
“Our emotional system in the brain sends signals to the body so we can deal with our situation,” says Lauri Nummenmaa, psychologist at Aalto University who led the study.
As seen in the map, it seems that Love and Happiness sparks warmth and heat all over our body in order to activate us (is this why Love and Happiness corresponds to the Element of Fire too????). Depression (lack of the Element of Fire) and sadness on the other hand has the exact opposite result. Feeling of dampness and gravity immobilises us. The team published these sensation maps Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Maybe one day, a scientific study will shed more light in Aura itself.
