Auric Magnetism

The phenomenon of human magnetism is too well recognized by the general
public, to require argument at this time. Let the scientists dispute
about it as much as they please, down in the heart of nearly all of the
plain people of the race is the conviction that there is such a thing.
The occultists, of course, are quite familiar with the wonderful
manifestations of this great natural force, and with its effect upon the
minds and bodies of members of the race, and can afford to smile at the
attempts of some of the narrow minds in the colleges to pooh-pooh the

But the average person is not familiar with the relation of this human
magnetism to the human aura. I think that the student should familiarize
himself with this fundamental relation, in order to reason correctly on
the subject of human magnetism. Here is the fundamental fact in a
nutshell: The human aura is the great storehouse, or reservoir, of human
magnetism, and is the source of all human magnetism that is projected by
the individual toward other individuals. Just how human magnetism is
generated, is, of course, a far deeper matter, but it is enough for our
purpose at this time to explain the fact of its storage and

In cases of magnetic healing, etc., the matter is comparatively simple.
In such instances the healer by an effort of the will (sometimes
unconsciously applied) projects a supply of his pranic aura vibrations
into the body of his patient, by way of the nervous system of the
patient, and also by means of what may be called the induction of the
aura itself.

The mere presence of a person strongly charged with prana, is often
enough to cause an overflow into the aura of other persons, with a
resulting feeling of new strength and energy. By the use of the hands of
the healer, a heightened effect is produced, by reason of certain
properties inherent in the nervous system of both healer and patient.

There is even a flow of etheric substance from the aura of the healer to
that of the patient, in cases where the vitality of the latter is very
low. Many a healer has actually, and literally, pumped his life force
and etheric substance into the body of his patient, when the latter was
sinking into the weakness which precedes death, and has by so doing been
able to bring him back to life and strength. This is practically akin
to the transfusion of blood--except that it is on the psychic plane
instead of the physical.

But the work of the magnetic healer does not stop here, if he be well
informed regarding his science. The educated healer realizing the potent
effect of mental states upon physical conditions--of mental vibrations
upon the physical nerve centers and organs of the body--endeavors to
arouse the proper mental vibrations in the mind of his patient.
Ordinarily, he does this merely by holding in his mind the corresponding
desired mental state, and thus arousing similar vibrations in the mind
of the patient. This of itself is a powerful weapon of healing, and
constitutes the essence of mental healing as usually practiced. But
there is a possible improvement even upon this, as we shall see in a

The advanced occultist, realizing the law of action and reaction in the
matter of the auric colors, turns the same to account in healing work,
as follows: He not only holds in his mind the strong feeling and thought
which he wishes to transmit to the patient, but (fix this in your mind)
he also pictures in his imagination the particular kind of color which
corresponds with the feeling or thought in question.

A moment's thought will show you that by this course he practically
multiplies the effect. Not only do his own thought vibrations (1) set up
corresponding vibrations in the mind of the patient, by the laws of
thought transference, but (2) his thought of the certain colors will set
up corresponding vibrations not only (a) in his own aura, and thence (b)
to that of the patient, but will also (3) act directly upon the aura of
the patient and reproduce the colors there, which (4) in turn will
arouse corresponding vibrations in the mind of the patient, by the law
of reaction.

The above may sound a little complicated at first reading, but a little
analysis will show you that it is really quite a simple process, acting
strictly along the lines of Action and Reaction, which law has been
explained to you in preceding chapters of this book. The vibrations
rebound from mind to aura, and from aura to mind, in the patient,
something like a billiard ball flying from one side of the table to
another, or a tennis ball flying between the two racquets over the net.

The principle herein mentioned may be employed as well in what is called
"absent treatment" as in treatments where the patient is present. By
the laws of thought transference, not only the thought but also the
mental image of the appropriate astral color, is transmitted over space,
and then, impinging on the mind of the patient, is transmitted into
helpful and health-giving vibrations in his mind. The healer of any
school of mental or spiritual healing will find this plan very helpful
to him in giving absent as well as present treatments. I recommend it
from years of personal experience, as well as that of other advanced

Of course the fact that the ordinary healer is not able to distinguish
the finer shades of astral color, by reason of his not having actually
perceived them manifested in the aura, renders his employment of this
method less efficacious than that of the developed and trained
occultist. But, nevertheless, he will find that, from the knowledge of
the auric or astral colors given in this little book, he will be able to
obtain quite satisfactory and marked results in his practice. The
following table, committed to memory, will be of help to him in the
matter of employing the mental image of the auric colors in his healing
