Auras are often worked with as part of an energy or spiritual healing process. This is said to be a powerful way to release energy blocks and allow prana to flow freely through the body. Often, aura healings will focus on the chakras and energy channels of the body. Healers may tackle what is seen as the root causes of energy blockages rather than physical problems since such problems are often perceived as only the symptoms of deeper energetic, spiritual and/or emotional issues.
Aura work may be combined with other spiritual practices, such as meditation or yoga, in order to help the person to become more present in their being and connected with their self.
