Aura is a certain manifestation of yourself. A subtler manifestation in the physical body. Keeping it clean is good. Aura is a manifestation, it’s not a presence by itself. But what you manifested yesterday, or what you manifested 10 years ago – may be still hanging around you, and not allowing you to become what you want to be. So that can be cleansed.
