Let us not forget that we are essentially vibrational beings of light, that is aura, and our Karma or our thoughts and deeds are creating the aura that we carry, invisible to untrained eyes, but visible to Beings of Light, ascended Masters and Angels. We receive what we receive on the basis of our aura, and that is how we are identified, not as black or white, rich or poor, educated or illiterate, Indian or American, Hindu or Christian, it is our aura which decides who we are.
As we evolve through our daily meditation, prayerfulness, and life of continual thankfulness to the divine and the Universe, the aura cleanses itself and glows brighter to attract the Higher energies and beings to our support.
When you go to an enlightened master, he/she recognizes you not by anything else but your aura. This is the light of the divine that shines perennially in all of us.
