I believe they are real, we all have a magnetic field around us, God. We are all individual and have a distintive "aura" around us that comes out in color. Mine is Purple, there was a lady in the restaurant I worked at and she said mine was purple. At that time in my life, it was new glasses time and I picked out a pair that was turcoise in color, I wore them that day and to work, everyone seen then as turcoise, at the end of the night someone said my glasses turned purple, not that I minded, purple is cool. I called the store where I got them and asked if I had purchased "mood glasses" I didn't know?( I was just told my aura was purple that same night as well, yep same night.) No such thing as mood glasses. They stayed that color. I also purchased plum colored furniture before glasses, plus I purchased a black with purple metalic vehicle around that time too. I didn't set out to do this, it just happened that way.
I do not work on, doing this, see aura's, I don't really know how to learn to do it, I knew years ago and seen a few. It has always interested me, because I know they exist. You can read someone's mood or how their nature may be by just seeing the color of their aura, I am a bartender, I'm a floral artist as well, wedding planner too, besides my new gig here, hubpages.com!!! It would be great for someone like me to know ahead of time what kind of mood someone was in ahead of time by the color of their aura! I am usually a pretty good judge of that but sometimes I just don't know? LOL.
I have done alot of reading in my day of these sorts. I am into all of the ologys as well. The true nature of all of them, including reading aura's, is all for real, it was the "fake fortune tellers" of the time way back when that gave this sort of thing a bad image. If you look to the "roots" of these things, you will find the truth about it!
Yes I truly believe in aura's, and I wish I knew someone who could read mine, these days, when I was writing my story the second time I was trying to write purple, I wrote red. Yikes. I need to get my aura book out and see what color red is??? I still feel purple.
