The auric energetic boundary – the defining edge of the consciousness field – is a vital part of the Etheric body. Just as the skin protects the organs in the body from infection, while supporting and containing those same organs, the auric “skin” protects the general energetic system from astral infection.
I always begin my energy healing work by clearing the energetic boundary of the client of lower astral material. Astral clearing is a skill that can be learned by most healers, and easily added to other healing protocols. This clearing of the boundary is the equivalent of a surgeon scrubbing up prior to any operation that will make an incision into the patient’s skin, with the aim of preventing infection due to the medical procedure. Similarly, if I am going to enter through the energetic boundary of my client I need to make sure my own entry does not provide an opportunity for unwanted astral energies to enter along with me.
Secondly, after I have cleared my client’s energetic boundary I will want to explore its strength and porosity, as this will give me vital information for the upcoming healing. For instance, if my client’s etheric boundary vibrates extremely fast it may indicate highly-developed mental growth but also could also suggest that the client is slightly out of contact with physical body, and its needs. The Barbara Brennan School of Healing (BBSH) refers to this particular configuration as the Schizoid character: someone highly mental or spiritual in personality, but lacking a strong grounding into the physical body. Relational Energy Healing seeks to support clients by increasing the efficiency of their inherent consciousness system. In this example, a fast vibrational boundary will need a counterweight to support continued personal growth. It will need to gain greater access to earth energies, and to root more deeply into the cells of the body. The relational energy healing protocol for working with a high-frequency boundary is to energize these lower frequencies.
Thirdly, the energetic boundary contains two important layers. The outer layer of the auric boundary is relational: it provides us with an interface to the outside world. The inner layer is self-reflective: it supports a balanced connection to our inner world. Both layers deserved attention; to clear and stabilize their functioning prior to any work to be done on the the chakra and chakra cord system.
Once the energy healing to chakras and chakra cords is complete I will always integrate the work back into the client’s energetic boundary. Any surgeon will take care to suture the skin after an operation, to seal up the entry point so as to enhance healing and to prevent infection. The same principle applies to energy healing work. Left alone our energetic entry points into a client’s auric field will heal of their own accord (again, just like the skin) but I find a focused and detailed closing procedure enhances the clients healing process tremendously. An additional reason to give a careful closure is to avoid leaving an energetic “scar” on the auric boundary. Cumulatively, careless or excessive entry/exit points in the same area on the boundary may weaken its integrity.
