When we do these kinds of activities with others, or by ourselves, we change the energy in our auric field. Our energy field can become depleted from the requirements of our lives, so taking the time out to re-align can change how the auric field functions. These times also carry us into the next phases of our lives because the effects are within our emotions, mind, spirit which impact our body.
There are many activities that enhance and open our auric field like meditation, reading inspired writing, yoga, and walking a labyrinth. These all can be sacred activities that help us put aside the difficulties and everyday requirements for living as we enter into the sacred space of connection. The image here shows how walking the labyrinth can affect our energy field. All activities are based on the intention we set and how we do the action. While we are busy, it can also be useful to know time has been scheduled to attend to this part of our lives because it lets us know we are taking care of ourselves.
