WHAT IS AN AURA AND WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
The aura is the energyfield surrounding us, which can only be percepted by a special camera or a psychic. To people who have never seen an aura before, the best way tot imagine it is like the shattered light you see surrounding a candle flame.
The aura reflects our "inner self". Depending on for instance the amount of lives that we have had and the state of mind (at a certain moment and during our entire life) an aura can be big or small, rarefied or instead very compact, stationairy or moving and so on. The aura is also sensitive to influences from its surrounding.
Broadly considered the aura exists of two layers. The layer closest to the physical body is the layer that might change from moment to moment. The second layer covering the first layer, tells us much more about the person in question in general.
Also every colour in the aurafield represents a certain meaning. During the workshop all the meanings will be dealt with extensively.
The chakras are points in the aura that absorb energy, there are seven chakras, namely:
7th crown chakra (intuition)
6th third eye chakra (visualisation capacity)
5th throat chakra (communication)
4th heart chakra (unselfish love)
3rd plexus solarus chakra (emotions)
2nd spleen chakra (sexuality)
1st tailbone chakra (earth energy)
A chakra can be compared best to a flower which - due to the circumstances - may be open or closed.
If a chakra - for example the throat chakra - is closed, in this case it means that there are problems communi-cating, like stutter for instance.
So, the ideal situation would be that a chakra is opened. Chakra's are the energy gates from kosmos to human: if one wants to feel balanced, it is of the upmost importance that the seven chakras are opened well.
However this is easier said then done! What appears as well every now and then is that a chakra is opened to wide and then the person can be exposed for a certain time to negative.
The workshop starts with an extensive lecture about the functioning of the aura and chakras. These facts will be explained more closely using supporting drawings, we therefore advise to bring along means to make notes. Further questions relating to this information can always be posed later on.
After this the practical part begins. Then you will be given the opportunity to see an aura yourself (to some this is easier, more familiar than others). Meditation is also involved in Aura & Chakras since through meditation chakras can be felt and stimulated better.
Healing is not dealt with until part three of the workshop. Jesus Christ got cripples and lepers to heal; this won't occur (instantly) at the workshop. You will be - thanks to the information from the former workshop parts - enabled to open chakras and recharge your "spiritual battery" for example..
The workshop will be concluded with a closing meditation and an exchange of opinions and experiences of that day.
WHAT IS TAROT?
Tarot is a pack of 78 cards. One part is the Great Arcana, the other part is the Small Arcana.
The first part, the Great Arcana (22 cards) is regarded as the cycle of human life: beginning with The Magician and ending with The Fool. The Great Arcana also represents the great forces which we can hardly influence oursel-ves, what the cards tell us. Finally the Great Arcana symbolizes the "archetypical energy of the personal and transpersonal cycle".
The Small Arcana, the second part, indicates more on the whole. The answers of these cards are less powerful then those of the Great Arcana and could be "changed" sooner if desired because, mind this: The Tarot is a guide to get a clearer survey of your life and not a fixed, irrefutable revelation of Fate.
