Capabilities

The user can create, shape and manipulate aura, the invisible etheric phenomenon/emanation produced by and surrounding a person or object.

Much like the ability, Life-Force Manipulation, the user can manipulate this kind of energy in various ways. However, this ability deals with the strength of their spiritual essence instead of the entire universe. Aura is the energy formed from one's achievement of spiritual power through extreme mental focus and strong emotions. Users of this power can increase their natural abilities, attract and repel another person's aura, sense the aura, and project it. Different types of aura are located in various parts of the physical body, such as the forehead, spine, throat, heart, and stomach. The power of aura also changes with one's mood.
