Learning to read auras is an enchanting journey into the subtle energy fields that surround us all.
“Aura” refers to the energy field that surrounds a human being. This living, changing, field of energy can reveal a lot about a person's mental, emotional and spiritual state, and even physical health. While some people are born with the natural ability to see auras, learning to read the aura is also skill that can developed with practice, patience, and by cleansing and elevating your own aura.
Aura's are the beautiful, dynamic, ever changing fields of energy that surround human beings … The aura is made up of layers of electromagnetic energy, subtle bodies, energy currents, and of course, color.
Each color within a person's aura has a story to tell. Color is one of the main indicators used by many aura readers to interpret how the aura reflects your personality, predominant emotions and the activity of the chakras.
Someone's aura is usually a combination of colors, with one color often being more dominant than the others. By learning to read and interpret the color of the aura alone, you can gain insight into a person's emotional and spiritual state, as well as their overall well-being.
Going deeper, you may begin to be able to distinguish the distinct layers of the aura, subtle bodies, astral body aura energies, intricate threads extending out from the aura, light flowing into the aura from above, etc …
Ultimately, when one develops the capacity see the full spectrum of aura colors, the subtle bodies, and all of the aura's layers, it becomes possible to pinpoint specific areas of blocked energy, identify individual health issues, energetic imbalances, and similar phenomena. Achieving this degree of psychic sight and interpretation requires extensive training and practice.
One thing to keep in mind when learning to read auras is that you may be able to receive information about someone's aura in a variety of ways that may or may not include “seeing”. When tuning in, do you somehow feel, sense, or know someone's aura color, even if you don't feel like seeing, or clairvoyance is how that information is received. Just be open, and willing to experiment.
Learning to read auras can be a fascinating and rewarding experience, but it does require patience and dedication as you begin to see and interpret the colors and qualities within someones aura, to gain a deeper understanding of where they are, and all their aura plane has to reveal to you.
One way to support yourself in learning to read auras, is to first cleanse and empower your own auric energy field!
What is an Aura Reading?
There are different types of aura readings I've come across. An aura reading can really be summed up as any practice in which a practitioner observes and interprets the energy field that surrounds a person's body.
Here are a few methods for how to read auras:
Aura Photography is a specialized type of photography that uses Kirlian photography to capture the energy field around your body.
Aura photo readings can be a fun way to begin exploring the world of auras. One of the great things about having your aura photographed, is the tangible evidence it provides of your energetic state. You get a clear, visual representation of your aura in that moment, captured in color.
When you can see your aura in this way, you can begin to understand its influence on your life, emotions, and interactions.
One thing to keep in mind is that aura photographers aren't able to capture how your aura actually looks … and the photos are a pale comparison to opening your subtle psychic senses to see the aura.
That being said, through the colors, clarity, and intensity of your aura as its captured through aura photography, you can gain insight into your state. You can observe the edges of the aura, get some insight into size and level of balance, as well as noticing whether there are any holes, dark spots or places of obvious blockage revealed in the aura photograph.
My Experience as an Aura Reader
I used to work as an aura photographer when I worked at Rainbow Doorways, a little metaphysical shop in Lake Tahoe. It was fun getting to take pictures of people's auras with the camera and intuitively read the deeper meaning beyond the aura color chart each person was given with their photo.
It was also interesting to notice how observable phenomenon that displayed in people's aura photos would correlate to very real and personal life issues they were navigating. For example, I remember one woman whose aura photo showed black areas that looked like holes in the aura … which almost always indicates holes or blockages in the aura, though it can signify intense transformation as well. When I spoke to her about how the photo showed there was a blockage in her aura, she shared a story of a very traumatic recent experience, which validated what her aura photo showed, and illuminated for her how affected by that her energy was.
While the color black in the aura is often associated with challenging circumstances, it's important to not make overly dramatic assumptions when it is there. Black in the aura may indicate health concerns, potential negative influences, or intense transformation. It could also represent a protective barrier or shield, blocking out external energies.
You can find often aura photographers through most metaphysical or crystal shops.
I think it's a fun experience to ‘see' the how the aura appears in a photo, and how it can change. I once channeled Archangel Metatron mid aura photo, and as you might imagine, it completely changed how my energy field appeared on photo.
Typically, when you have your aura photographed, you will receive some sort of guide to help you interpret the meaning of the colors, though what you learn in this post will also help with that so you can read your aura photo for yourself and understand what it says about you.
Clairvoyant Aura Reading
Clairvoyant means clear sight, and so a clairvoyant aura reading is when an aura reader uses clairvoyance, or psychic sight, to observe the current state of the aura energy field and gain insight into your personality traits, wellbeing, along with insight into any blockages or challenges that revealed within the aura.
During clairvoyant aura readings, aura readers use their intuitive abilities to interpret the colors, textures and patterns in a person's aura.
Each color is associated with different qualities, chakras, and emotions, and the patterns can indicate areas of strength or weakness in a person's energy field. By analyzing the aura, a good clairvoyant reader can offer insight into a person's past, present, and future.
Aura readings can be done in person or remotely. In-person readings may involve the practitioner using their hands to sense the energy field around a person's body. Remote readings are sometimes done through a photograph or just by connecting with a person's energy field from a distance.
Overall, a good and helpful aura reading can provide valuable insight into a person's energy and well-being and can be used to gain clarity and understanding in all areas of life, including relationships, career, and personal growth.
Interpreting The Different Colors of Auras
Interpreting color is an important aspect of an aura reading. Each color has a different meaning and can provide insights into your emotional and physical health. Understanding the different aura colors and their meanings can help you better understand yourself and others.
Here are some of the most common aura colors and a brief overview of their meanings:
A red aura represents passion, vitality strength, and energy. Red in the aura can also signify anger, anxiety and impatience, especially when it appears in a reddish brown, or murky dark red. Red is associated with the root chakra and indicates a strong connection with the physical world. People with a red aura are often determined, ambitious, and hardworking. Red auras are sometimes seen to be negative auras, corresponding the the lower impulses of the ego mind, but it's essential to note that they can also represent more than just that, therefore, red auras should be interpreted based on the specific shade, intensity, and context of an individual's overall energy field.
A yellow aura is associated with the solar plexus chakra and represents joy, creativity, and intellect. People with a yellow aura tend to be optimistic, curious, and expressive. They have a strong sense of self and are often natural leaders.
A yellow band of color over the top of the head may suggest a person who is currently experiencing a period of personal growth, intellectual development, or spiritual awakening.
An orange aura represents enthusiasm, excitement, and confidence, but can also indicate stubbornness or pride. Orange is associated with the sacral chakra and indicates a strong connection with emotions and creativity. People with an orange aura are often adventurous, spontaneous, and sociable. Orange can also point to an intensity, and in the case of a muddy brownish orange color can indicate a blockage.
A green aura is associated with the heart chakra and represents balance, harmony, and growth. People with a green aura tend to be compassionate, nurturing, and empathetic. They have a strong connection with nature and often work in healing professions.
A blue aura represents communication, intuition, and spirituality. It is associated with the throat chakra and indicates a strong connection with the spiritual world. People with a blue aura tend to be calm, peaceful, and insightful.
A purple aura represents intuition, psychic abilities, and creativity. It is associated with the third eye chakra and indicates a strong connection with the spiritual world. People with a purple aura tend to be imaginative, intuitive, and spiritually aware.
A pink aura represents love, compassion, and kindness. It is associated with the heart chakra and indicates a strong connection with emotions and relationships. People with a pink aura tend to be nurturing, caring, and romantic. This is said to be a very rare aura color.
A white aura represents purity, spirituality, and enlightenment. It is associated with the crown chakra and indicates a strong connection with the divine. People with a white aura tend to be wise, spiritual, and connected to the universe.
A gold aura represents wisdom, enlightenment, and higher consciousness. It is associated with the crown chakra and indicates a strong connection with the divine. People with a gold aura tend to be enlightened, intuitive, and spiritually advanced.
Brown Aura Colors
Brown in an aura may suggest a person is feeling stuck or overwhelmed, struggling to let go of certain situations or holding onto negativity. Brown areas in the aura can sometimes indicate blockages, or negative emotions that are out of alignment with ones true purpose. On the other hand, a bright and clear brown color could be associated with a deep connection to the physical world or a desire for stability and simplicity.
Can Your Aura's Color Change?
The colors of your aura can indeed change over time, reflecting the various shifts in your emotions, mindset, health, and spiritual development.
An aura is essentially a reflection of your current state of being, encompassing your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual energies. Therefore, it is dynamic and continuously evolving, much like you are. Significant changes in your life, health, mood, energy level, or even a change in your environment can lead to variations in your aura's color.
For instance, if you're generally calm and peaceful (which might show as a blue or green aura), but you're currently experiencing a phase of intense creativity and passion, your aura may shift towards colors like orange or red. Similarly, if you've been feeling stressed or unwell, your aura might change to reflect that state.
Keep in mind, though, that these shifts are often temporary, and your aura may return to its “usual” colors once your circumstances change or you return to your normal state of being. Regular meditation, energy work, aura cleansing, and maintaining a balanced lifestyle can contribute to a healthy, vibrant aura.
By learning to read auras, you can gain insight into your own energy and the energy of those around you.
Aura Readings by Shape
The shape of the aura can provide significant insights into an individual's overall state of being, and is another factor to help determine whether the colors present reveal a positive or negative auras. Here are a few common aura shapes and their possible interpretations:
- Uniform Aura: This type of aura shape extends evenly around the body in an oval, centered egg type shape. It indicates a person who is balanced and harmonious, both emotionally, and mentally.
- Elongated or Extended Aura: When an aura is off balanced, and extends further in a particular direction, it could indicate where a person's energy is currently focused. For instance, an aura extending ahead of a person may signify anticipation or planning for the future, while an aura stretching behind someone might reflect a focus on past experiences.
- Dense Aura: A dense or thick aura often suggests that a person is very energetic or has a strong presence. They may be outgoing and charismatic, or they could have a dominant personality.
- Thin or Weak Aura: A weak or thin aura could indicate a lack of energy or vitality. This may be due to physical illness, emotional stress, or mental exhaustion.
- Jagged or Spiky Aura: An aura that appears jagged, spiky, or uneven could indicate emotional or mental turmoil. This person might be experiencing stress, anger, or anxiety.
- Holes or Gaps in the Aura: Holes or gaps in an individual's aura may suggest physical, emotional, or mental health issues, or even illness or disease within the physical body. These could be areas where the person's energy is depleted or blocked.
Remember, aura interpretation is highly individual and should consider multiple factors, including colors, intensity, and the person's current physical, emotional, and mental states. An individual's aura can change over time based on their experiences, health, and personal growth. So remember, if you have an aura reading you're not pleased with … You have the power to cleanse and uplift your aura!
How to Read Auras
If you're interested in learning to read auras for yourself, there are several techniques you can use to start tapping into this fascinating aspect of energy work.
Aura Reading Techniques
Practice Sensing Energy: Start by developing your sensitivity to energy. This can be done by holding your hands a few inches apart and slowly moving them closer together and further apart, trying to feel any sensation.
Its also helpful to go out into nature, and feel into the energy of different plants, trees, rocks, etc. Try to sense the energy of natural items to your subtle senses, rather than your physical senses. Pay attention to how you receive subtle energy.
Peripheral Vision: One of the most common ways to see auras is to use your peripheral vision. To do this, look at an object straight ahead of you and focus on it. Without moving your eyes, try to see the area around the object. You may notice a hazy or colored aura around it.
Meditation: Meditation can be a powerful tool for developing your aura reading abilities. By quieting your mind and learning to focus your attention, you can become more attuned to the subtle energies around you. Try setting aside some time each day to meditate, even if it's just for a few minutes. As you become more comfortable with meditation, you may find that you're able to sense the energy fields of other people and objects more easily.
Soften Your Gaze: To physically see auras, soften your gaze by looking slightly to the side of the person or object, not directly at them. This is similar to using peripheral vision.
Use a Neutral Background: When starting, it's easier to see auras against a white or neutral background. Ask the person to stand against a white wall while you softly gaze above their right shoulder. Start by focusing on one spot, then shift your gaze to the space just above or around their head. You're looking for a sort of haze or white light around them.
Observe the Colors: Once you can see this white light or haze around a person, within that energy you may start to notice a subtle sense of color. These colors can be faint or bright, clear or cloudy. What are the colors of your aura?
Interpret the Colors: Each aura color has a general meaning, such as red representing passion or energy, blue indicating calm and communication, and green symbolizing healing or growth. You can look up the meaning of an aura color, but also give yourself an opportunity to intuitively consider what the aura color means. Allow yourself to sense, and intuitively decipher what the aura say's about a person.. 0r what your own aura color reveals about you.
Practice With Regularly: Like any skill, the more you practice, the better you'll get. Start by practicing on friends or family members, or on yourself in the mirror, and remember to be patient with yourself. It's okay if you don't see colors right away. With practice, your ability to see and read auras will improve.
By using these techniques, you can begin to develop your ability to read auras and gain a deeper understanding of your own energy field. Remember to approach aura reading with an open mind and a sense of curiosity, and don't be afraid to experiment with different methods until you find the one that works best for you.
The Importance of Aura Awareness
If you want to understand yourself and others better, aura awareness is an important skill to have. Auras are the subtle energy fields that surround living things, and they can reveal a lot about a person's emotional, mental, and spiritual state. By learning how to read auras, you can gain insight into yourself and others, improve your communication skills, and even enhance your physical and emotional well-being.
Layers of the Aura
The human energy field, which is often referred to as the aura, is comprised of several layers or subtle “bodies.” Each of these layers corresponds to a different aspect of our being, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual elements. While the exact number and configuration of the subtle bodies can vary depending on different spiritual and esoteric traditions, a common model includes seven layers. Here they are, from closest to the body to furthest away:
- Physical Body: The physical body is surrounded by an energy layer often referred to as the “physical aura plane”. This aura appears as a luminescent white energy field encompassing a person's physical form.
- Etheric Body: The Etheric Body, also known as the etheric aura plane is comprised of the life force energy that animates our physical form. Without this animating force, that's sometimes called Chi, or Prana, the physical body remains inert and lifeless. Essentially, the Etheric plane anchors life force energy into our physical form, empowering our breath, movement, and life.
- Emotional Body: The next layer of the aura is called the Emotional body, or “emotional aura plane”. As it sounds, this middle aura layer reflects our emotional state and relates to all emotional functions of consciousness. Within this layer aura readers may be able to see emotional blockages, as well as primary emotional states a person engages.
- Mental Body: The mental aura plane, or mental body relates to all mental faculties including logic, intellect, and rational abilities. The mental body can become clouded with negative and distorted thought patterns, or it can be clear and bright in someone who has a clear, positive and focused mind.
Astral Body Aura Plane: In many subtle energy body systems the mental and emotional bodies combined make up the astral body aura plane.
- Casual Body: The Causal Body serves as a link between your higher spiritual faculties and the lower, more physical auric levels. The Causal Body is said to hold the spiritual blueprint of your karma – past actions, and cause and effect. The casual aura plane can be cleansed and empowered to become a powerful guiding force in your life.
- Spiritual Body: This spiritual layer of the aura is sometimes called the celestial aura plane. The Spiritual Body serves as the vessel for your evolved spiritual capabilities and operations.
- Light Bodies: The last aura plane, is actually comprised of several layers in and of itself. These light body layers are comprised of very subtle high vibrational energy that will typically only be activated in awake and aware individuals. When the light bodies are awakened, they bring healing energy and rejuvenation to the entire auric system.
Each layer of the aura contributes to our overall health and should ideally be in balance for us to function optimally. Understanding the layers of the aura can help with aura cleansing, chakra balancing, and other types of energy work.
The Relationship Between Auras and Chakras
When it comes to understanding auras, it's important to understand the relationship between auras and chakras. Chakras are energy centers in the body that are believed to correspond to different aspects of our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
When a chakra is imbalanced, it can affect the corresponding aspect of our well-being and may be reflected in our aura. For example, an imbalanced heart chakra may manifest as a lack of love or compassion, and may be reflected in a lack of green or pink in the aura, or a muddy brown or black color within whatever pink or green is present.
Here are some common aura colors and their associated chakras:
The Seven Chakras
- Red- Root Chakra – located at the base of the spine, associated with grounding, stability, and security.
- Orange- Sacral Chakra – located in the lower abdomen, associated with creativity, sexuality, and pleasure.
- Yellow- Solar Plexus Chakra – located in the upper abdomen, associated with personal power, confidence, and self-esteem.
- Green- Heart Chakra – located in the center of the chest, associated with love, compassion, and emotional balance.
- Blue- Throat Chakra – located in the throat, associated with communication, self-expression, and truth.
- Indigo- Third Eye Chakra – located in the center of the forehead, associated with intuition, wisdom, and spiritual insight.
- Violet or White- Crown Chakra – located at the top of the head, associated with connection to the divine, spiritual enlightenment, and transcendence.
Each chakra is associated with a specific color, and these colors are believed to be reflected in our auras.
It's important to note that everyone's aura is unique, and the colors and patterns can change depending on a variety of factors, such as mood, health, and environment. Understanding the relationship between auras and chakras can help you gain insight into your own well-being and spiritual growth.
Sometimes, auras can become clouded or congested, which can lead to physical and emotional problems. Aura cleansing is a technique that can help clear negative energy from your aura, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
There are many ways to cleanse your aura, including meditation, visualization, and energy healing. One simple technique is to imagine yourself surrounded by a bright white light, which can help clear away any negative energy. You can also use crystals, essential oils, or other tools to help cleanse your aura.
By being aware of your aura and taking steps to keep it healthy, you can improve your overall well-being and attract positive energy into your life.
Aura awareness is a fascinating and powerful skill that can help you better understand yourself and others. By paying attention to auras in everyday life and taking steps to keep your own aura healthy, you can enhance your communication skills, improve your emotional well-being, and attract positive energy into your life.
With love and bright blessings,
