Intro To Auras

Are there times when you feel uncomfortable in crowded places? Are there moments when you feel as if your space is being invaded? Some people can only come so close to you. This is a reaction triggered by your aura.

Someone else’s aura may be intruding upon yours.

At times, you feel uneasy in the presence of a certain person. When you enter a room, you sense that something is wrong. The human aura is a strong electromagnetic field. We give off the electrical energy and absorb the magnetic one.

You can feel this energy force in a room full of people, where varying energies, positive and negative, are being interchanged.

The aura is an extension of our energies, be it strong or weak, fair or otherwise, light and bright or dull and dense. It is a band of energy that surrounds us, a life energy that can be sensed around every living thing, plants, trees, animals, birds, and people.

There are seven layers of the aura, but the most accessible to human perception is the first three layers surrounding the human body. Auras can be seen with their eyes wide open, or they can also be seen psychically with their eyes closed.

Aura Color Meanings

Colors are an essential aspect of aura reading. Below is a description of the meanings different colors hold. When reading auras, be sure always to trust your intuition.


This is a confusing color. There is nothing wrong with black in one’s aura. Black generally means one is shielding oneself from outside energies. This can also mean being unbalanced; one is hiding something or keeping secrets. A black ring usually indicates some form of abuse, adults who have not dealt with early abuse will carry this black ring till they are healed.


This comes in different shades. Gifted people have shades of blue in their aura. Intuitive people will show pale blue coloration within the purple, bursting out like rays of sunshine emanating from the heart outwards. A deeper blue can indicate loneliness. A very deep blue shows devotion, honesty, and sound judgment, whereas muddier shades indicate a domineering person or a tendency towards depression.


This color can indicate growth in a person. Seen around the head and with other colors emanating in combination, it indicates a person developing mentally, intuitively, and organizing within. Brown by itself can indicate a lack of energy or one who has become “stagnant.”


Indicates lots of spiritual energy, in tune with oneself. Muddy gold means one has not come to terms with higher levels.


Usually seen around a thinker, an analytical person. This could indicate a “balanced” person. Intelligent people show this color around their heads.


Sympathetic to others, dependable, and has healing abilities. A muddier shade could indicate jealousy- like “green with envy.”


It can indicate intuition and creativity. Silvery gray shows femininity, while darker gray can mean secretiveness or physical imbalance.


Bright orange means one is growing emotionally and paranormally. A dull shade means a person is unsure how to accept this growth. Muddy orange shows in a person with too much pride.


The color of love and honesty. It also depicts the quieter side of an artistic and creative person. Dark pink may indicate immaturity or changes in one’s love life. Dull pink, however, watch out; Someone is lying.


The color of intuition, a deeper purple hue, shows a strong-willed and passionate person. It can also reflect intense erotic imagination and being overbearing.


A color of love or hate, strong emotions, and energy. An intense red color, however, may indicate a person ready to fly off the handle.

A Guide To Seeing Auras

Seeing the aura takes your eyes slightly out of focus. If you’ve ever been able to see those holographic picture-in-a-picture things, then you shouldn’t have any trouble seeing auras as you do precisely the same thing with your eyes.

The first time I was at a seminar and this topic came up, I had no luck with seeing the auras of the other folks in the seminar. That night I went over to the bookstore, grabbed a bunch of the holograph picture books, and sat there until I could relax my eyes and see them. The next day when I went back for the rest of the seminar, I didn’t have any trouble seeing the auras of the other attendees.

Have your training partner stand in front of a light-colored wall in a dimly lit room. Have your partner hold one finger in front of their face, about 6 inches from their chin.

 Now focus your eyes on their finger, not their face. Have them remove their fingers but keep looking at the same spot. You’ll have to relax your eyes a bit to do this. Now, using that same relaxed vision, if you look at them you should be able to see a little line that runs all around them a couple of inches out from their body.

 The next layer out is even fainter and may have colors associated with it. The different meanings of the colors vary widely depending on who you’re talking to. My advice in this area is to open up your awareness and see which colors are most often associated with which types of people and their behaviors.

Play with this a bit. Does their aura change when they think happy thoughts? Sad thoughts? Angry thoughts?

Some people can see auras instantly, and others must work at it. Don’t be too put out if it takes a while. As you work with this, you’ll gradually become aware of even more subtle layers of energy that surround people. You may also find that you can feel another person’s chakras and even discern their dominant chakra, which instantly tells you how that person is likely to react to any given stimuli.
