Aura Awareness Day
Celebrated on the fourth Saturday in November, Aura Awareness Day is a holiday that attempts to spread the word about the existence of the human aura. For people who aren’t aware of the concept of an aura, it’s basically energy that emanates from a person or an object.
The word aura comes from the Latin word meaning “breath” or “breeze,” and the word was first used to describe the field of energy that surrounds each person during the 19th century.
Psychics and people affiliated with New Age religions reportedly can see these energy emanations coming from a person and gain insight into their personalities, beliefs, or even health status. And this holiday was established to spread the word about this phenomenon.
The History Of Aura Awareness Day
The aura as the energy emanating from the human body is something that people have reportedly seen since the dawn of civilization. There are even cave paintings that show people surrounded by auras.
And all throughout the centuries, artists have placed auras and halos on their subjects — particularly in religious paintings. The name of the energy field surrounding the human body has been called an aura since about the 19th century.
Aura Awareness Day was created in 2002. We’re unsure who started this holiday, but we can assume it was someone who practiced aura reading or was interested in the practice. We’ll continue to research this holiday, but it doesn’t look like we’re going to find out who created it.
