Sometimes I have noticed that Sora (or anyone else in my party) will be walking around with this odd grey wispy swirling thing around them. What does it mean? Is it a good thing or a bad thing?

It is a good thing. Someone cast an Aero-family spell. The spells have the following effects:

  1. Aero - Halves damage taken. Duration is determined by adding 18 to your max MP.
  2. Aerora - The above + damage on contact with enemies. Damage is determined by doubling your max MP value, and adding 6.
  3. Aeroga - Above + it will deflect some attacks.

Below is a picture of Aeroga in action.

Don't forget, higher levels (aeroa, aeroga) also reflect and cause damage as well. – TylerShads Jul 25 '12 at 19:59
