I've heard and seen this 'thing' about highly spiritual people having "skin that glows."

When I say that, I literally do mean it; an individual effortlessly costuming a vibrant, radient, soft, distinguishable glow that sets them apart from the avergae humans.

From what I am mentally constructing, this seems to be a natural ramification of people who are constantly maintaining very high vibes most of the time.

Below are two video blogs of people who briefly discuss this "shine" in their skin. You don't even have to listen to what they talk about, their glow is obviously quite apparent, even despite being recorded off a digital camera:

Example # 1- I challenge anyone to watch this video and try and not smile in happiness. His vibration is majestic; you can feel it when you watch the video.

Example # 2- Chek out these two...You may need sunglasses :)

There have been a few small, unimportant comments lingering on IQ about this glowing skin thing. Unfortunantly my other sources (apart from my Higher Consciousness and individual Entity interactions) hold only unsatisfactory doses of information upon this; if it's even talked about.

Question- What are you comments about it, and more importantly, how do you get it? I really want this angelic, glowing skin :)

Thankyou aliens, spirits and you people! (and whatever else we've secretly got on the website)

At its most mundane level, it's a sign of extremely good health.

You'll also find that those people who have a "glow" also have clear complexions and bright, radiant eyes - and often the extremities of their body (fingers, toes) are warm to the touch.

So you can get it by doing whatever aligns with your belief system regarding extremely good health :)

At a slightly more esoteric level, it's actually a sign of strong life-force flowing consistently with little, or no, resistance through the body.

What does that mean in ordinary, do-able terms?

It means having lots of desires and allowing the energy summoned by them to flow freely through you.

@Stingray- (sigh) back to the vortex we go....

(22 Jul '12, 09:11) Nikulas

@Nikulas - It's the answer to everything, I'm afraid. IQ would be very boring if everyone figured it out :)

(22 Jul '12, 09:13) Stingray

But I've also seen that when these type of people (with glow) fall sick, they tend to fall sick for a much longer period of time and also much worse than normal cases. My example is one of my friend who is always positive and happy no matter when you see him, and to me he has this bit of glow too.. but whenever he fall sicks its usually much worse and last for much longer

(22 Jul '12, 21:27) kakaboo

@kakaboo - Abraham explain this with a simple analogy. When you are driving your car at 1 mph and hit a tree, it's not a big deal. If you are driving your car at 100 mph and hit a tree, it's a very big deal :)

(23 Jul '12, 13:27) Stingray

@Stingray, I don't know what to make out of that example lol. Isn't it like oxymoron, when you have an extremely good health, it's nearly impossible to fall pray to common diseases. So great health would be a tank, not a car, that actually rolls over the trees or diseases. It can only be stopped with equal or greater force. So then if someone falls sick for much worse and longer, they couldn't have good health to start with.

(24 Jul '12, 08:40) CalonLan

@CalonLan - In that example, I don't believe Abraham are suggesting it is the same tree for both examples. A tree that stops an extremely healthy person would have be of quite significant size. If one is extremely healthy and Vortex-aligned, I agree that I don't see how anyone could ever fall ill. But the problem is that no-one can be Vortex-aligned all the time. It's during those times when you are out of the Vortex that you are at risk of hitting those big trees.

Its funny this question should come up right now. I have been hearing about my "glow" for several weeks now.

I am dating again (I know, this stuff does work!), and have been hearing this sweet complement from men, but I tend to take those with a grain of salt. :)

But it's more than hearing that you are beautiful, it's described as a light coming from within, that my smile is lighting up the room, that people just want to get close to me. Even one of my doctors yesterday, (a guy not easily impressed, believe me, and not talkative or flamboyant at all) actually stopped and stared when I walked into the room. He said WOW! You look amazing! You are just GLOWING! LOL! He just stopped in his tracks, it was like a cartoon, I had to laugh!

I am not doing anything or acting in any special way. I am just going about my business, but there is a much clearer light shining inside me, that much I know. It must make it to the outside of me, too. I love it. :)

@Everyone, thankyou for the input. That's why I love IQ! As @Eddie posted in his recent question, no, we all become aware of the answers ourselves when we frequent the vortex, yet it's nice to swap stories and get everyone's unimportant little treasure finds of info, manifestations and whatnot; unimportant meaning it's only important if you say it is.

These past two-three days I've attracted into my reality some more tips upon this cool, "zen glow" thing. Having a bit of acne, I did pop into my manifesting box a method/ diet/ set of guidelines to clear my acne effortlessly. Yet when my mind came across this spiritual skin, the desire sharpened, like, 200 max out +++

I love Samuel L Jackson's line in the cult movie Snakes on a Plane, when he get's fired up and has had too much contrast for one day "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!: >> This time, in terms of my not so perfect skin (funny and empowering quick clip btw).

So if anyone wants a better complextion or simply more energy, here are some tips. Only follow what you feel drawn to- if it doesn't resonate with you, it's complete rubbish for you, so don't impliment it. I know I attracted it, and it works within my belief system, but I want to share for the sake of it.

Nikulas' Cool Complextion Colaboration

  • Coming from many sources, but to me, very strange because I got a flood of information about this one in around 3 hours from just about everywhere I looked; if there is one thing you can do, it is to eat cucumbers and carrots. Uhu. One whole cucumber and carrot per day. An absolute stranger I was talking to said she's only been eating cucumbers for two weeks, and cut down on her sugar drastically, and I was the second person to inqure about her unique, pretty glow.

  • It's been stated everywhere, but again, drinking plain water, and lots of it. My Higher Mind has inspired me with hints such as drinking close to 2L first thing in the morning before any other foods. And, throughout the day, around 500mL every hour (I've found room temperature water quicker to get down). Soooo much energy if you properly stick to this.

  • Zero dairy products, zero alcohol, zero red meat (seafood I'm getting the impression isn't so bad).

  • Magnesium. Either eat foods that are rich in it, or you can cheat your way like I do and just take a daily suppliment pill or powder mixture.
  • Large servings of green, leafy vegetables. I've found consuming freshly juiced things like celery and lettuce to give me an IN-CREDIBLE boost. Give it a try for yourself on an empty stomach before you judge it- to me it's pure rocket fuel.

  • Dark, dark, dark, dark chocolate. 70% cocoa at least. Being a chocoholic you can imagine I didn't slightly detest this point. I take it last thing before bed, and my dreams have become more interesting and explorable.

  • And, while we're here, we've always got Stingrays magnificent post that could have possibly spurred me into this subject more deeply. Check out his weird mound of health ideas here. Every one of them I'm trying at the moment is working better than I initially judged it.

I have been putting this to the test for only four days now, along with a large collection of other ideas, and, no joke, my skin is looking better than it ever has before I developed acne.....We're talking I've never had skin so good in over a decade.

On top of that I physically feel tip top.

Another thing to note is my hair; I've been told it's becoming more vibrant in colour and shine, as well as the texture being ultra smooth and managable. This is a big thing for me, coming from a genetic family of people who have very, very thick, wirey hair.

Also my teeth have whitened up alot. Perhaps this is unrelated to the "zen shine" but from what I've seen, all these glowing people have flawless, white teeth (nahh, it could just be the colour contrast, who cares).

Got any tips? Anything works for you to attain "the shine"? Or maybe you'd just like to tell us if you eventually do develop this cool "spill over" ramification from your spiritual work!

And that's all I have to say about that. Happy remembering!

Update- August 14 2012

A video/guy that will fit into the general popluations mainstream belief system about achieveing this glow. Here is a knight who's holy weapon is none other than a juicer. He shine's like a star: Notice he's already just consumed in this drink 8 vegetables.


Discussion of the lymph system in human biology is also included. Anthony Robins has outlined in one of his books, Unlimited Power, a particular breathing rate which not only sends ultra amounts of oxygen to the body, but also clears out the lymph system at the same time:

Anthony Robbins Breathing Technique:

The pattern follows as 1 breath in, 4 seconds to hold, and 2 breaths out.

Example: Breath in air for 3 seconds...Hold the air in your lungs for 12 seconds...Exhale the air for 6 seconds.

He advises to do 10 repetitions of this style of breathing, 3 times per day.

Coconut oil- I blend my fruits and veggies and add that to it. It gives me a big boost of energy & helps wake me up in the morning. Healthy fats:) flaxseed oil works too. Although I have to say I think it's about how you believe the food will affect you. So I make sure to enjoy whatever I eat, even if it's a burger.

(24 Jul '12, 13:10) LapisLazuli

@Lapis- "So I make sure to enjoy whatever I eat, even if it's a burger."- And you my friend, have hammered the nail perfectly. A good rule of thumb to follow is, be 100% focused when eating. Or, you could at least make the effort to be fully in the moment and appreciate what you eat at least with foods your beliefs would label as toxic for you body. Mmmm.......celery...:P

(26 Jul '12, 04:54) Nikulas

Everything is energy. At the smallest level that scientist have found, the smallest particle is a packet of light. They have cameras that can show the light from things including food. The more life, the more light. Organic produce had more light than conventional produce. The more the food is processed, the less light showed up on the picture. We are what we eat. So the more food we eat that is closest to its natural state, the more it glows and the more we glow.

Being full of joy and happiness increases our glow as well as we are closer to the source of life when we are.

Toxins from food and the environment have less light, so removing them by eating good food and drinking plenty of water clears that out so we can glow more. Also, water holds memory of emotions, so the water quality does matter.

People have told me that I glow. They used to more, but I felt self conscious about it and less people have said it lately. I guess I should welcome it.

Here is what Leija posted on her facebook fanpage on sunday, shortly after you asked this question. Pretty much what I would have said. :) I coppied and pasted from her fan page below.

Leija Turunen's Friends and Fans Page


GOTTA LOVE IT!!! :D Ok, so this morning I went to the grocery store to pick up some organic fruits & veggies, and when I was in line, I couldn't help but notice this man staring at me with a HUGE smile on his face. He was probably in his 60's, with very joyful/ friendly energy. :) He walked over to me from another line-up, and said, "I just have to tell you miss, you are absolutely beautiful! You are just glowing! Are you expecting by any chance?" I replied with something like, "Thank-you! I'm not pregnant haha, but I have been a vegetarian for my entire life, and currently eat a lot of raw organic fruits & veggies everyday, fresh juices, smoothies, etc., do some kind of exercise everyday- these days it's jogging, yoga, swimming, and/ or freeform dance, do a daily meditation, get my vitamin D by going out in the sun everyday (well, when the sun is out), walk barefoot as much as I can, hug trees or just connect with nature in some way, help/ inspire people everyday, listen to my heart and pursue my passions, don't let the challenges in my life discourage me, because I know that they are in my life to help me grow & expand, and soar to new heights! I go with the flow as much as possible, and continue to let go of the things that no longer serve my highest good. I also make sure to get my silly on and laugh everyday! So those things combined will give you tha glow!" :D He looked a little stunned after my response which I blurted out at a very fast pace lol, and responded with, "WOW, is that all? ;) (LOL) I better go buy some more fruits & vegetables and take a yoga class or somethin'....and hug a tree later today (LOL)!!! Will you hold my spot in line? I'm going to visit the produce aisle quickly (LOL)" :D :D :D

I hope this post serves as inspiration for many of you today! :)

In love, light & vibrant health,

Good contribution. Btw everyone, this 'Leija' is the youthful female featured in the second video link on my question.

(24 Jul '12, 10:10) Nikulas

The "glow" you are referring to comes from what is called the "aura".

The aura is a field of energy that surrounds all human beings. In highly spiritual people, the glow can be "seen"- this is why old pictures of Holy people had halos around their heads.

I can see auras because I have been trained to do so in my energy work- I also believe it is a gift that can be learned if you are patient and try.

As far as developing that glow, you would need to spend eight years under a tree like Buddha, or years of preparation and three years teaching, like Christ. Moses was supposed to have "glowed" after he came down from the mountain...Nikulas, you are aiming pretty high!

I wish I could see you in person so I could see your aura. I bet I would see a "glow" around your head, but it is not something that everyone can see.

I know of a boy who can see people who are going to die- no kidding. This kid "sees" them enveloped in a black sack. In other words, their aura has changed and he somehow can see it. True story- Wade's Mom knows him.

If you want a glow, then you must devote the rest of your life to God. Period. And forget about anything else, like doing it just for the "glow"!

Just be you. I'll bet you have a lovely aura.

@Jaianniah - You wrote : "The "glow" you are referring to comes from what is called the "aura"" and then you wrote: "I wish I could see you in person so I could see your aura". You don't see an inconsistency in what you've written? If what you say is true then the rest of us can see that "aura glow" on the video recordings without any training :)

It is apparent by your responses that many don't believe in auras here or know what they are. All you need to do is look at any pictures of Jesus he is glowing. Any holy pictures as a matter of fact, angels saints etc... They are all glowing brightly. Most people have so faint a glow that only those trained to see or that have that gift of seeing can see them.

(26 Jul '12, 16:15) Wade Casaldi

@Wade Casaldi - "It is apparent by your responses that many don't believe in auras here or know what they are" - No, actually Wade, it doesn't mean that all :) Auras cannot be directly perceived by human vision because the eyes are not capable of seeing those frequencies. What happens is that the frequencies are "stepped down" by our perception and we see a representation of the aura only. See the idea of the frequency heterodyne

I pretty much agree with Stingray.

And on that note, if it's true, then anything that significantly increases your health will be beneficial. Drinking a lot of water, for a start.

On a slightly more esoteric level, there are energetic "exercises" you can do that may (and I say may, but really mean will) develop it. Such as yogic pranayama and qigong.

I'm actually reminded of one time, about 5 years ago. I had just restarted performing a ritual that day (after a long break), called the "Lesser Invoking Ritual of the Pentagram" (from the Golden Dawn). I saw my friend a few hours later and he (entirely randomly and nonsensically to me) blurted out as we were parting that the whole time he was distracted because I "was glowing". I was entirely taken aback and had no idea wtf that was even supposed to mean - so naturally I demanded he explain. :P

His explanation didn't satisfy me...it was something along the lines of "um...I don't know...it's just like there's a light shining from your face".

I hadn't really thought about it until now, so I just thought I'd share since it popped into my consciousness.
