Whether you first heard about aura colors from social media or your super spiritual friend, it’s understandable if you didn’t totally understand the concept. After all, when talking about people, the word “aura” is often used interchangeably with “vibe,” even though they don’t really mean the same thing. And if you’re new to the idea of people radiating different colors—which some people can see, and others can’t—and each color having its own meaning, it might leave your head swirling with a kaleidoscope of questions. Like, for starters…

What is an aura, exactly?

An aura is an electromagnetic field, also called an energy field, that radiates off everything, including the human body, says Pamala Oslie, a professional psychic intuitive, an aura expert, and author of Life Colors: What the Colors in Your Aura Reveal. “According to quantum physics, we’re all energy, so the fact that we’re radiating energy makes sense,” Oslie explains, noting that auras have been detected with electronic equipment. Kirlian photography, for example, is created using an electrified photographic plate and show a glowing discharge of energy, similar to a halo or aura, around an object, per Adobe.

    When it comes to everyday aura detection, you likely don’t have fancy electronic equipment to read someone’s energy rainbow. Instead, think of when you meet someone and you have a gut reaction to whether or not you’ll be friends—that can be boiled down to their aura. “Even if people can’t see the aura, we can all feel it,” says Oslie. “That’s why you can meet somebody for the first time and feel comfortable around them… and other people you don’t even want to be in the same room with. You’re feeling their energy throughout their aura.”

    Meet the Experts:
    Pamala Oslie is a professional psychic intuitive, an aura expert, and author of Life Colors: What the Colors in Your Aura Reveal.

    Eileen Lee is an aura reader, photographer, and founder of AURA AURA, an experiential aura portrait practice.

    But the tricky part of interpreting aura colors and their meanings is that misconceptions abound on both ends of the spectrum—that auras are just one color and don’t change, or that they change all the time. “It’s not one or the other,” says Eileen Lee, an aura reader, photographer, and founder of AURA AURA, an experiential portrait aura practice. “Everybody’s just so different based on really what you’re experiencing, [and] more importantly, how you’re experiencing it.”

    How can I find my aura colors?

    The most accurate way is to “access somebody who’s able to photograph your aura,” says Lee. Personality tests claiming to reveal your aura do exist, but they “aren’t necessarily accurate because our auras do sort of change [over time],” she explains.

    In fact, it’s a myth or, at least a misconception, that aura colors are purely based on personality. That’s a factor, sure, but your aura is more about the energy you embody at a certain time, Lee says, hence the need for a photograph. It functions similarly to a snapshot of your life—capturing a moment of it, rather than telling the whole story. That said, “some people’s lives are very consistent, so their aura colors probably wouldn’t shift very much,” she explains. “Versus somebody whose life is very dynamic and always has different experiences, their energy would be a bit more all over the place.”

    How do I see another person’s aura?

    Lee says we’re innately born with the ability to see others’ auras, but as we grow older, we start to tune all of it out.

    However, some people still possess the ability to see them, and there are different ways to go about it. To start practicing, use your own (or someone else’s) hand to “start seeing if you can kind of focus around and see at least its energy field,” Lee suggests. At first, it might look white or gray, but colors will show up when you’ve had practice in opening yourself up and not trying to see anything in particular. She also encourages doing research online and reading books to teach yourself more about aura reading. “Different things work for different people,” she adds, so there’s not necessarily one right way to do it.

    You can also try to meditate and notice “the colors that are closest to you,” she encourages, which is similar to the feeling of falling asleep and seeing colors when you’re in that in-between sleep and normal state of consciousness.

    Aside from that, you and another person can compare photographs of your auras, so you can see their aura colors at that moment in time.

    Watch this to learn what it’s like to live a day in the life of an aura reader:

    How frequently do aura colors change?

    Well, it depends. “There isn’t necessarily a set rule for how long your aura is going to be like this,” says Lee. For example, two people who go through the same experience together, such as moving to a new place, will both likely have a lot of red in their aura, since that’s related to starting new life chapters, according to Lee. But their auras can still change at different times because “how you individually process that [shared] experience can be so different,” she explains. Basically, your aura is as special and unique as you!

    Knowing the color of your aura, including if/when it’s changed, is key, Oslie says, because it can not only help you understand who you are, but also give you actual permission to be who you are. (Feel stuck in a dead-end job? Check your aura color. Keep fighting with your S.O.? Compare those auras. Need to better manage your cash? Use. Your. Aura.)

    Once you’ve got the rundown on all the different aura colors and their meanings (more on that in a sec), you can also better understand your friends, family, and even that cool rando you met at a party last week. “Then, it’s easier to communicate, get along, and bring the best out of each other,” Oslie says. And, I mean, who doesn’t want that?

    What does it mean if you have red in your aura?

    Penpak Ngamsathain//Getty Images

    Red often signifies tangible life changes, a.k.a. anything that feels like starting a new chapter, says Lee, noting that relationship changes, job or career shifts, and literally moving somewhere all fit the bill.

    Because aura colors relate back to the chakra system within our bodies (which you probably recall hearing something about in a yoga class), “red is our foundation,” says Lee. “The function of our root chakra is to ground us, to make us feel safe and secure within ourselves, but then also, literally [within] the life that you’re trying to mold and shape in some way.”

    The problem? “When we have a lot of red energy, it tends to be misunderstood. I’ve heard in the past that if your aura is all red, it’s a negative thing, like you’re out of balance,” she explains. “But to me, it’s like what you need at that time is a lot of red energy, because if you think about it, when you go through a lot of change sometimes it feels chaotic.” The red aura color, with its grounding energy courtesy of the root chakra, could be just what you need.

    In terms of personality traits, though, red means taking action and leadership, says Lee: “It’s the energetic archetype of a leader—somebody who takes initiative—because tangible change literally never comes about just sitting at home and wishing it to happen, right?” Interestingly, those who embody that adventurous doer sort of spirit always tend to have red in their aura, no matter what life throws at them.

    What does it mean if you have orange in your aura?

    Because Lee uses the chakra system, the second aura color is orange, which is linked to our sacral chakra. “That deals with your emotions, relationships, how we experience things,” says Lee. “It’s literally the color of experiencing life.”

    What does it mean if you have yellow in your aura?

    mikroman6//Getty Images

    The sunny shade aligns with the solar plexus. “From a big picture perspective, that color deals with our power, our confidence, our ego self, and also our intellect,” says Lee.

    What does it mean if you have green in your aura?

    Jan-Stefan Knick / EyeEm//Getty Images

    “Green is reflective of the heart chakra, and I’ve noticed that when we have a lot of heart chakra energy, it’s about self-love, self nurturing energy,” says Lee, noting that it often signals being more generous and open with others as well. (Think about it: When you love yourself, it’s easier to spread that love around. )

    The avocado-esque hue usually shows up in your aura when going through growth or transformation because you’re using so much of that self-love energy to overcome a challenging situation, says Lee. That can be anything from going through grief to starting a new job. Or, if you’re stepping into a new role, like first-time parenthood, for example. Turns out, Kermit said it best: It’s not easy being green. But it does offer an opportunity for self-reflect, learn, and grow, notes Lee.

    What does it mean if you have blue in your aura?

    Tetra Images//Getty Images

    Exact shade is important here—a true cyan blue (not too light, not too dark—is reflective of the throat chakra, which “governs how we communicate and how we express ourselves,” says Lee. But it’s not all talk. Lee makes a point of noting that humans can express themselves in different ways beyond simple chitchat.

    What does it mean if you have indigo in your aura?

    Jasmin Merdan//Getty Images

    That’s aligned with the third eye chakra (a.k.a. the brow chakra), which deals with awareness, understanding, and being more deeply connected to yourself, says Lee.

    What does it mean if you have violet in your aura?

    Maryna Terletska//Getty Images

    This pretty purple is connected to the crown chakra, which, Lee says, is all about our dreams and possibilities. When violet shows up in your aura, you’re likely embodying an energy that trying (or, hopefully, succeeding!) to tap into a more imaginative space.

    You likely talk in visual terms, like “I have a vision” and “I have a dream,” adds Oslie. Sometimes, though, your dreams are so big, you wonder if you’ll ever achieve them. (Don’t worry, happens to the best of us.)

    What does it mean if you have white in your aura?

    Olga Siletskaya//Getty Images

    White is a little tricky, but that’s what makes it interesting. It’s kind of like all the colors, but it’s also technically an extension of the crown chakra, says Lee. “People always say… white means you’re spiritual. But what I’ve noticed is white actually reflects more of connecting into that sort of energy, but it doesn’t just mean you’re spiritual,” she explains. “Usually, it represents somebody who, instead of being governed by logic and is always in their head, understands that there are things bigger than themselves. They just tend to be more open, so they connect into that sort of spiritual energy.” Instead of sweating the small (and medium and big) stuff, they trust that clarity will just come through naturally.

    “I’ve also noticed a lot of white in people’s auras can actually reflect states where they’re feeling very confused or things are a little bit overwhelming mentally, but it’s not like they’re overthinking it,” Lee adds. “It’s just almost like there’s too much to take in at once… [It’s] almost like you’re in a fog, and instead of trying to wade through it, you’re just waiting for the fog to dissipate.”

    What does it mean if you have tan in your aura?

    Pakin Songmor//Getty Images

    Now, I know what you’re thinking (because tbh, I thought it, too): Tan is an aura color? It sure is, according to Lee and Oslie, and a pretty solid one at that. Almost like a darker shade of yellow, tan “reflects more of a linear thinking process,” says Lee. Someone who has a lot of tan in their aura tends to be more analytical and embodies a left brain kind of energy, she adds. You know your super-rational friend who talks you down every time you think about blowing your whole paycheck on a really cute pair of boots? Yep, they’ve got a healthy dose of tan going on.

    “Tans want security and stability,” adds Oslie. They also appreciate practicality—and want as much of it in their life as possible. If you have tan in your aura, you’re likely the textbook definition of “detail-oriented” and live by the motto “slow and steady wins the race.”

    What does it mean if you have magenta in your aura?

    Oleksandra Korobova//Getty Images

    When Lee sees magenta in someone’s aura photograph, she also tends to see white on top of it. “[It’s] almost like if you think about your aura like a tiered birthday cake,” she explains. “Magenta is a color that’s literally in between red and an indigo blue, so it reflects things like acting on your intuition.” Juxtaposed with white, that can be interpreted as using intuition to realize your dreams.

    On its own, magenta energy is associated with someone prioritizing themself and marching to the beat of their own drum. The aura color also has a bit of a rebellious rep, but Lee says “it’s rebellious in the sense of not needing external validation from anybody aside from themselves. ” Someone with a heckuva lotta magenta is authentically themselves and makes no apologies about it.

    What’s most interesting about this aura color, says Lee, is that when you’re not used to being magenta, but then it comes into your energy field, it signals that you’re trying to connect more with who what you were like as a kid—when you were free to do whatever you wanted and didn’t care what others thought. “I always love seeing magenta in people’s auras because they’re just doing what lights them up,” she adds.

    What does it mean if you appear to have black in your aura?

    Tuomas A. Lehtinen//Getty Images

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but…you’re burnt out. “There’s actually no such thing as black in your aura,” Lee says, explaining that it appears as a sign of a lack of energy. If black shows up in your aura or your aura colors look dim, that can mean you’re exhausted from any number of things, such as arguing with someone or being around a person who depletes your energy. “Sometimes, it’s environments that we’re in or people around or situations that all really shows up,” she explains. It’s more of a hole in your aura than a color itself.

    What does it mean if you have a rainbow aura color?

    MamiGibbs//Getty Images

    When you’re “rainbowing,” as Lee calls it (fun new phrase alert!), you tend to feel like life is a little chaotic. Granted, it’s usually a bunch of good stuff happening all at once, she says, but it’s still a lot to handle. You’re literally being pulled in many different directions, versus those who have fewer colors in their auras, they tend to be more focused on just a couple of aspects in their life.

    “If you really think about each color as a different state of consciousness that you’re in, or a different dimension of yourself, you’re operating from all these levels all at once, which for most people can be a little bit more overwhelming,” explains Lee. “…I always say it’s like a double edged sword. While rainbows look beautiful, you don’t necessarily feel so beautiful when you’re experiencing it.”

    What is the rarest aura color?

    “I don’t see a real pink too often,” says Lee, meaning a lighter, bubblegum-esque shade than magenta.

    Natsicha Wetchassart / EyeEm//Getty Images

    “I think why that is a true pink reflects somebody who’s almost like an innocent child in their nature—who’s very just open hearted, very gentle, very compassionate,” she explains. “It’s almost saint-like kind of qualities. Somebody like a Mother Teresa would probably have a pink energy.”

    What Color Is My Aura [How to See Auras & How to Clear Them]

    Everything in the universe is made up of energy. An aura is a human energy field that surrounds your body and reflects the state of your being through various colors. Maybe you are a beginner in the spiritual circles, and you ask yourself, what color is my aura?

    If you are eager to know more about the colors of an aura, where they are located, or how to cleanse your aura, read on to find out!

    What Are Auras and Why Do They Reflect Colors?

    The word aura derives from the Greek word meaning “breeze” or “air. ” It’s a pure life force.

    • We all possess an aura, and it’s a rainbow-colored auric field, typically invisible to the physical eye, which can be perceived psychically with a bit of practice. The aura can be seen radiating from a person’s whole body in the form of an ellipse, made up of several different-colored bands.
    • The meaning of each aura color is believed to tell a lot about our mood, health status, and personality. The aura may determine our connections with others, and our aura-elicited actions are often surprisingly accurate.
    • It is believed that one’s aura color is the reflection of the personality, mind, and soul. When it’s at its most radiant and strong, the aura can reach the diameter of an extended arm. This bioenergetic field fluctuates in size and solidity under different conditions.
    • Your aura corresponds to your zodiac sign and shows aura colors that match your astrological personality. You can find out more about your zodiac sign aura on some of the top astrology apps.
    Did you know: There are people who read auras, and this process is described as a way of sorting through our internal blueprints and traumas to get to the genuine authenticity of our inborn manifestation. For more in-depth info, visit the best psychic readings online.

    I bet by now you’ve asked yourself, what color is my aura? Different colors are usually related to different emotions and qualities. Someone’s aura is usually a blend of colors, with one being more dominant than the others. Let’s see what each color means and which chakra it is associated with.

    Red Aura

    • Red aura stands for survival, grounded action, strength, high energy, bravery, physical aspects of life, passion, and determination.

    CHAKRA: Root or base

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: As clear bright red, cherry-red, or rich ruby, it symbolizes vibrant life, capacity to overcome any barriers, a will to initiate positive change, and a passionate disposition.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: Metallic red indicates a short temper, a domineering nature, an inclination to erupt if frustrated, impulsivity, and risk-taking.

    Orange Aura

    • A person with an orange aura finds meaning in trust, confidence, and a powerful sense of identity, fruitfulness, self-respect, health, and personal desires; it is the color of the integrator.

    CHAKRA: Sacral

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: Warm orange aura shows originality and creative abilities, as well as an open-minded, dynamic, and optimistic nature.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: A light orange may indicate a lack of identity or low self-respect, when an individual bases their sense of worth only on what others think.

    Yellow Aura

    • Yellow aura stands for intellectual pursuits, logic, adaptability, mental agility, changeability, or uneasiness. It is the color of the communicator.

    CHAKRA: Solar plexus

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: Clear bright yellow is a color of joy and clear transmission, while lemon yellow is the color of an attentive mind and a bright memory.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: Irregular stripes of yellow aura reflect the meaning of potential hyperactivity, while mustard yellow may mask jealousy or bitterness. A metallic yellow hides dishonest intent.

    Green Aura

    • Green aura. What does a green aura mean? It suggests love, loyalty, harmony, natural growth, and thoughtfulness for the environment; it’s the color of the child of nature.

    CHAKRA: Heart

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: Green reveals a trustworthy heart full of love, a person who is open-handed with time, money, and love.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: Pale green implies emotional dependency. Lime green may indicate stress in present relationships. A cloudy or dark green aura may indicate those who love unwisely and excessively.

    Blue Aura

    • A blue aura carries the meaning of natural authority and wide vision; it has healing powers transmitted through higher sources. It is the color of the seeker of truth.

    CHAKRA: Throat

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: Royal blue signifies an integrated personality with a strong feeling of justice. Light blue auras are seen as very creative and also compassionate. Clear blue represents objectivity.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: A harsh blue is typical of someone who is opinionated, despotic, and inflexible towards others’ lifestyles and beliefs.

    Indigo Aura

    • An indigo aura implies inner vision and spirituality, awareness, a vision of the future and of past lives; the color of seers, it can indicate a person able to give accurate psychic medium readings. 

    CHAKRA: Third eye

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: Clear indigo suggests sensitivity to people’s unstated intentions and awareness of the mystical realm, greater intuition, and psychic perception.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: When the indigo aura is faded, it suggests that its owner is daydreaming too much and has a tendency towards self-pity or stress, especially since people with such an aura tend to absorb other people’s negative moods.

    Purple Aura

    • A purple aura is considered to be connected with other dimensions and with spirit guides; it is the color of the mystic. Purple is the highest aura level, and it is associated with pure cosmic energies, dreams, and higher consciousness.

    CHAKRA: Crown

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: Related to unconscious wisdom and the collective knowledge of humankind in all ages and places.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: A dark violet aura indicates idealism or unrealistic expectations—that is, the inability to accept everyday life with its imperfections.

    White Aura

    • A white aura is very uncommon and rare, and it is associated with universal energy and oneness.

    POSITIVE QUALITIES: It is linked to innocence, unselfishness, altruism, wisdom, opposition to deception, celestial connection, and higher consciousness. People with such auras are considered to have healing capacity.

    NEGATIVE QUALITIES: White aura can have a negative meaning if it appears dim or murky. This could indicate lack of experience, judgment, or self-sacrifice stretching as far as self-harm.

    Black Aura

    • A black aura is different from having a dim or dark aura. Practically, there cannot be a black aura color by definition, and if you nonetheless have a lack of color rays, it signifies that your life force is very low and that you are feeling very vulnerable. Rest assured, with a healthy dose of support, this absence of color rays in your body can be fixed.

    How to See Auras?

    If you’ve ever guessed what someone has to say next, or you felt a bad vibe from a person that you are hanging out with, you might be an aura reader and not know it. After the question “what color is my aura?”, comes the next question, “How can I see it?” If you want to see your or other people’s auras, here are a few methods you can try:

    By Looking in the Mirror

    To see your aura, get in front of a mirror at least 18 inches away, farther if you can. Position yourself in a way so that you’ll have a white background behind you. Relax and focus on the surface of the wall. Lighting should be natural, not too bright or dark. As you look past the contour of your head and shoulders, you’ll notice subtle light around your torso.

    By Looking at Your Hands

    The second technique on how to see your aura is by concentrating on your hands. Start by tapping the centers of your palms your fingers. Then place your hands about 7 centimeters apart, palms facing each other. Slowly inhale and exhale. Let your fingers relax.

    Very slowly move your hands 12 centimeters apart. Look intently at the space between the tips of your fingers. Repeat this several times, moving the hands closer to each other and then farther. You’ll notice a gentle outer light radiating from the surface of your palms, but also be aware that it’ll take some practice to actually see your aura.

    By Taking an Aura Photograph

    Have you ever thought about getting one of those professional aura portraits? You can capture an aura only using a special camera. It has an algorithm that uses frequencies read from your torso and converts them to compatible colors. Red aura hues are usually measured between 400-480 THz and higher frequency hues like indigo are between 620-670 THz.

    The concept of energetic frequency is important in this context as it gives us insight into how quickly energy is shifting. Allegedly, an aura photograph can give you some insight into your different states of awareness. Moreover, it can assist you in identifying what surrounds you energetically and can help you understand yourself better.

    Key Takeaways

    We all have an aura, and our energy auric field shows different colors.
    Most people’s auras are usually a mixture of colors, with one more dominant than the rest.
    There are different meanings of auras according to the colors that can be seen in them.
    You can see auras by looking in the mirror, at your hands, or by taking aura portraits.

    The Number and Location of Aura Colors and Their Meanings

    People’s auras display an abundance of colors. But still, various people’s auras may have a different number of colors and different locations where they can be found.

    One Main (Primary) Color

    By default, every single person possesses one aura color, which gives the person unique characteristics. Still, it’s worth mentioning that alongside this so-called “primary’’ color there is always a secondary color or even a rainbow of colors, something I’ll cover in the next paragraph.

    Secondary Color

    As a mixture of 2 different primary color auras put together, it is a combination of the energies and meanings of these colors. If you have two main colors in equal quantity, you get the secondary color.

    For example :

    • Blue and yellow make green.
    • Red and blue create purple.
    • Red and yellow create orange.
    Only One Color or Rainbow of Colors

    Auras change all the time, but generally, there are one or two colors that are dominant and those are the primary and secondary colors.

    Maybe your aura features even more hues, so it might be more appropriate to say you have a rainbow aura. When someone is surrounded by four to six colors, it implies that they have very active energy and lots of interchange and experience.

    If your aura is multicolored, it means that you’ll probably feel confident and won’t mind how you are perceived by others and their opinion of you won’t matter much. It shows that you’re balanced from an energetic point of view. Also, it usually means that you have a healthy aura and that you naturally process different flows and motions, manifesting all of this in your life.

    Locations and Their Associated Meanings

    Different color auras can also appear in different locations, and therefore have further meanings. If the colors are on:

    The Right Side (Left in the Picture)

    A cluster of colors on the right side indicates that you have a revealing active or masculine side, this is how you project your personality and how other people see you. This part of the body also represents the recent past.

    The Left Side (Right in the Picture)

    This side indicates your receptive, feminine, or sensitive side. It is the part of your personality that gains receives, feels, and fantasizes. The aura colors in this location are also suggestive of what you are creating for yourself in the near future.

    Above the Head

    It points to what you are experiencing in the present moment. An arc of color stretching over the top of the photo indicates what the person’s aspirations or goals are. For example, a mix of indigo and blue aura may indicate that the person’s highest hopes are to be creative and spiritual.

    Near the Bottom of the Body

    Colors near the bottom of your body or the sacral chakra mirror your subconscious or suppressed condition of mind at the present moment, or the feelings you’re holding in.

    Did you know: Aura astrology is a unique field of study of human energy that aims to calculate someone’s energy field. By combining star chart readings with different aura color meanings, it tells you how strong your energy field is and recommends treatment to make your energy zone more powerful.

    What Affects Auras? 

    Our moods and emotional states may influence the aura in different ways. It mirrors our mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Everything we have ever mastered and whether we are flowing in line with our life’s purpose is reflected. If you are joyful and healthy, you’ll have a clear aura, which is bright and energized. If you are tired and dull, then your aura will reflect this by fading. It may have dark or smokey patches in it too.

    The state of other people also affects the aura. When you’re outside, you may attract negative energy from people if you don’t know how to preserve your aura, but we’ll get to that next. For instance, you meet someone and you feel this bad vibe. Observe how your mood can change. You end up feeling low until you throw off that negative aura energy or consciously imagine it draining away out of your aura. The same can be said if you encounter a person who gives you good vibes; you’ll probably feel uplifted.

    How to Clear Your Aura?

    Now we got to the part where I’ll give you a few tips on how to cast off bad aura energies.

    • If you want to wash off those negative energies, take a shower or bath, adding Himalayan salt. When you prepare your bathtub, toss anywhere from a couple of handfuls, up to one cup of Himalayan salt into the tub. Fill the tub with hot water, then soak for 20 to 30 minutes. There are also beautiful Himalayan salt lamps that are both chic to have in your home and helpful for clearing the energy in the room.
    • In order to cleanse your aura, try this ancient practice by smudging with dried white sage. Smudging is essentially burning herbs and using the smoke to purify your aura. To do this, you can use a variety of different herbs, including cedar sage and thyme.
    • Meditation is another powerful tool for clearing away pessimistic, negative vibes. It can also be used as a precautionary method. Just take time to calm down, clear your mind, and cleanse your aura by not thinking.
    • Another way to wash away the influence of other people’s negative auras is with selenite crystal, which absorbs negative energy. Selenite is extremely powerful and also promotes a cooling and calm energy. Position the crystal by grabbing it as you would a hairbrush, and picture your aura as extended hair. Start from above the head and brush down to your feet, holding your crystal a few inches off the body.
    Did you know: Baby auras normally have a diameter of 15 centimeters around the body? As children grow, they may add a different color to their auras. Also, most grown-ups have an aura of about 2 feet (60 cm) around the body. Some more spiritually-elevated or strong personalities have auras that extend to 5-6 feet (1.5 meters) wide.


    Some people think that auras don’t exist, and they don’t even want to try and see them. Others believe that you have to be an old soul to see and sense the aura. Nevertheless, many researchers believe that auras are real and factual. It may be well worth a try to see your aura with your own eyes.

    What is an aura and how to determine its color?

    We are sure that you have come across such concepts as “aura” and “aura color” more than once, right? Surely you always wanted to know what shade and your spiritual shell. How to determine your color and what does it mean? If you’re eager to find out, then read on 👇🏻

    What is an aura?

    It is believed that aura is a manifestation of the soul and spirit of a person. The aura is not a real object that we can touch and see, so it is not very suitable for the study of science. To put it simply, the aura is a kind of energy cocoon in which a person is located. The most interesting thing is that your “cocoon” shows not only the physical state, but also the mental state – thoughts, emotions and feelings ✨

    How to determine the color of the aura?

    But this is the most interesting thing! There are several methods (although they are all considered unreliable), but whether it is true or not, judge for yourself:

    • With the help of a special camera that you hardly have at home 😅

    • In the semi-darkness, press your palm to a white sheet of paper close your eyes and focus. You should see the rays that will come out of your fingers. If you do everything right, then you may be able to see the color of your aura. But this, of course, is closer to the esoteric 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • By the date of your birth, you can determine exactly the innate color of the aura, but this will not be able to give you an answer about your current state of it. You just need to add the numbers that make up the date of your birth. For example, if you were born on 06/29/1997, then add 2+9+0+6+1+9+9+7=43 (you need to add until you get a number from 1 to 12). Since 43 is a much larger number than 12, you add 4 and 3 to get 7. And then look for the color that matches your number!

    Aura colors and what they mean:

    1. Red aura

    Red is the color of aspiration, ambition, love of freedom and optimism.

What is an aura?

The aura is often described in the esoteric teachings as a radiance that is seen around the head or the whole body. The apologists of this knowledge consider the aura to be a sign of a special mystical power or a reflection of the emotional and physiological state. In esoteric literature, the aura is described as a radiant oval shell of the body, visible only with supersensory perception. In many cultures, practices of “cleansing the aura”, rooted in Hinduism, are common, in which the balance of the colors of the aura seems to be changed by controlling emotions and visualizing the radiation of the chakras, which changes the state of the person.

In parapsychology and spiritual practice, the aura is represented as a field of “thin”, light radiation surrounding a person or object, like a halo or halo in religious art.

Simply put, an aura is a bright colored beam of energy that flows around living beings. Our aura comes from the Greek word for “breathing” and indicates our mood, emotions and general state.

How to determine the color of the aura

In fact, even before meeting a person, his and your aura make the first impression on each other. Unfortunately, the human eye cannot see auras, but with some training it is still possible to determine what color a person’s aura is.

To determine the color of the aura, you will need a mirror and a white background. You will need to look at yourself in a mirror against a white background, focusing on the middle of your forehead. Without moving your eyes, “scan” the outer perimeter of the head and shoulders. The color you see around your head and shoulders is your aura.

Another way to find your aura is to look at your hands for about one minute. The glow you see coming from the inside of your hands will be the color of your aura. Please note that it may take several attempts to see your aura. Practice will lead you to perfection! Once you consider the color of your aura, you can begin to interpret it.

By the way, you can read not only your own aura, but also that of another person. To do this, look at him or his photo for 45 seconds with one eye open and the other eye closed. You may need to repeat this several times. But eventually you will be able to see the glow of color around them.

Before you begin to interpret the aura, remember two important things:

  • each aura color is associated with a different chakra or energy center. For example, red – an aura associated with energy and vitality – refers to the root chakra;
  • the aura can be of several colors and this is called rainbow aura.

Aura Color Meanings

  • White – shows a balanced personality, calm and open to possibilities. Those with a white aura may have a tendency to absorb other people’s energy. White is the rarest of all aura colors.
  • Gray auras may indicate a skeptical outlook or a person who tends to see the glass as half empty. Opening oneself to new opportunities for such a person will be difficult and will require effort, but necessary and rewarding.
  • Brown aura often indicates selfishness and insecurity. This color tells its owner that there is a need for purification or that you need to give more to others, and not just take.
  • Black aura can show dark energy caused by selfish and unkind behavior. The appearance of this aura may indicate that a person needs to get rid of the baggage that prevents him from radiating positivity in his life.
  • Passions boil in the soul of those who have red aura , as they live by their desires and emotions. Creative to the core, red auras always manifest new goals and inspire creative ideas. Such an aura can also indicate a period of dramatic creative change.
  • Pink aura indicates someone who freely gives his heart to others without asking for much in return. If you have a pink aura, make sure your giving energy is reciprocated with those you care about.
  • Creativity is key for those who have orange aura . Their artistry brings them peace, but only if they can focus on one thing. The minds of such people are overactive, which means that they need to hone their ideas in order to bring them to life.
  • Those who have yellow aura are full of energy and radiate optimism. Yellow auras benefit from living in the present without worrying about the future.
  • Green auras usually in a down to earth, hardworking person who loves nature. They are aura color spectrum builders, which means they welcome growth. The downside is that they can be prone to jealousy or competition.
  • People with blue aura are emotionally sensitive and prone to self-expression. They may be shy about revealing their innermost feelings, which means you should listen when they speak.
  • Those with turquoise aura are empathic and sensitive. At times, they may be afraid of change and nervous, trying to find situations in which they will be protected from experiences.
  • Indigo aura indicates a wise person with an old soul. Sometimes they escape to their secret world to protect their energy, mind and heart from others.
  • Violet – spiritual and emotional awareness, psychic feelings and high emotionality are signs of the violet aura.

How do I know if my aura is compatible with other people’s auras?

As with astrological signs, some aura colors are more compatible with others:

  • If you have a white aura, then any color suits your energy. Be careful not to absorb other people’s emotions because you are susceptible to it.
  • If you have a black aura, then the golden aura will serve as healing energy for both of you.
  • If you have a gray aura, a purple aura can help you find purpose and meaning.
  • If you have a brown aura, a light green aura will help open your heart.
  • If you have a red aura, a bright green aura will help both of you show passion in reality.
  • If you have an orange aura, a dark blue aura will enhance positive emotions between both of you.
  • If you have a yellow aura, adding a bright purple aura will help inspire and motivate you both to get creative.
  • If you have a green aura, then adding a purple aura will make both of you more spiritual.
