Tomorrow night will be the last night of the Spiritual Arts Institute's foundation course, Change Your Aura, Change Your Life, which I have attended for the last six weeks and I will be sad to see it end.
The Change Your Aura course is based on the popular book, Change Your Aura, Change Your Life: A Step-by-Step Guide to Unfolding Your Spiritual Power, by Barbara Y. Martin and Dimitri Moraitis and teaches an approach to meditation and to spirit which I have found to be quite resonant with my own experience and beliefs.
My personal experience through visions, meditative experiences and dreams has convinced spirit is light and that this light exists upon a continuum. It has also shown me that color is highly significant in terms of spirit. I did not understand however prior to taking this course, what that color meant.
Martin teaches that each color we utilize (or down-ray) during meditation represents an aspect of the divine light of God. And she goes on to explain that each and every color has a meaning. In the meditations student work with many shades of color and learn the divine attributes of each. In the class special emphasis is given on connecting with divinity and very specific instruction is given on how to establish that connection.
In addition to the meditations, student are encouraged to work with goals, visualization and affirmations and I have found the process of sending light into these mental constructs to be particularly effective.
My goal for the class was to write an outline for my new manuscript. A difficult thing, as I have been struggling with this manuscript and feelings that I am not competent to write it for a long time now. I have started the writing process multiple times over the last few years but always unsuccessfully. Taking the entire six weeks of the course to work out the outline however has been extremely effective.
Not only do I now have a good working outline but I came to understand through meditation that a favorable outcome for this project does not depend solely upon me or my abilities and this was, I think, something I very much needed to understand. Believing myself worthy of divine guidance is always a struggle for me, but thanks to the "Change Your Aura" course this too is changing.
During the course, Martin and Moraitis also shared some very valuable instruction on spiritual hierarchies, the inner plane and dreamwork and these are three topics which are extremely resonant to me. The teaching given is very helpful and I have been waking up quite often in the middle of the night to write down ideas for the book as I believe they are given to me. This is something that hasn't happened to me for quite some time and I am glad to have it back.
I hope to continue taking courses at the Institute and I highly recommend them. Given live via webinar in a virtual video classroom, the Spiritual Arts courses have the potential to effect a real and lasting change in any dedicated individual.
