The Golden Aura

I saw something gold around the priest; it appeared like as a cloud of some sort. At the same time “energy currents” or colors were crisscrossing through the audience. I shifted my position, moved my head to a different angle, squinted my eyes a couple of times. The gold cloud remained around the priest and the energy kept moving.
