What is Aura (Part-6)

What is Aura?

Aura signifies the energy field projecting out from the surface of a human body or an object. This projection can be seen as a colored outline surrounding the body and is also said to be a symbolic of soul vibrations, chakric emergence, or simply, a reflection of surrounding energy fields.

As we know, that it’s not just the interior but the exterior of the body as well which contains electromagnetic energies, these energy waves travel in and out of the body through Chakras into the Aura. Studies have proved that every part of the physical being to the smallest molecule or atom and in fact all that which we can perceive in third dimension, is a composite of electromagnetic energies. These energy waves emanating from the deeper levels of the body, in fact, carry signals / messages from inside the body to the outer world, in the shape of a shadowy outline termed as Aura; one just has to learn how to interpret and decode these messages. An Aura can extend out far or remain close to the body, depending how open how secretive a person is. A person who has the Aura close to his body is usually said to have a tendency to hide his real self from the rest of the world. Interpretations may however differ.


Auras vibrate to different color, sound and light frequencies. The color spectrum varies with one's physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual states. Colors and intensity of the aura, especially around and above the head have special meanings. An expert can actually see the other person's thoughts before they are even expressed verbally. If the energy projections from the body do not match with what a person is saying, it can be concluded that a person is lying. We can fake every possible gesture which we are capable of making but we cannot fake our Aura. It always carries the coded message, portraying a person’s true self, his basic nature and intentions if only one can see and interpret it.

Some highly intuitive persons and psychic readers can even see images within their subject’s Aura. These images may include symbols, hazy images of people, numbers, or even another aspect of the person's soul which comes through the third dimensional aura from another realm. Some psychic readers have also reported to have witnessed two people (in love) in each other’s Aura; the intensity and the colors of their Aura, however, depends on the nature / depth of their relationship. Studies show that when two people do healing work together or have a physical contact, they are more likely to share a common Auric field for some period of time due to the merging of their electromagnetic energies, although for a short period.

Aura is no miracle but a proven scientific fact

In ancient times, when people had no explanations for a phenomenon, they used to call it a miracle. With the passage of time and the knowledge endowed by spiritual seekers, people were able to see Auras. Saints and spiritually revered people, who had transgressed as seekers, such as Lord Buddha, Jesus Christ, Sai Baba, were painted with golden haloes around their heads, because some artists could actually see their Auras.

Scientists have proved beyond doubt that each and everything existing in the Universe seems to be a sum total of ‘energy’ or simply put, a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom to the smallest level, every particle and even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. Hence, we can safely conclude that Aura is as an electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external stimulus (such as bright light).

The Aura around humans is partly composed from EM (electromagnetic) radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared (IR) to UV light. The low frequency microwave and infrared part of the spectrum (body heat) seems to be related to the low levels of the functioning of our body (DNA structure, metabolism, circulation etc.) whereas high frequency (UV part) is more related to our conscious activity such as thinking, creativity, intentions, sense of humor and emotions. As per Russian scientists, who have worked wonders in the field of ‘Aura research’ have proved that our DNA can be altered, by influencing its microwave Aura. The high frequency UV part is very important and most interesting but largely unexplored. And this part can be seen with naked eyes.

The way you think / feel is the way your Aura looks

Aura is said to be our spiritual signature. When we see a person with a bright, clean aura, we can be sure that such person is good and spiritually advanced, even if he/she is modest and not aware of it. A person with a gray or dark aura is taken as a person with unclear intentions, regardless of how impressive, eloquent, articulate, charming or immaculately dressed he/she may seem to appear.

Everyone has an Aura. Most people are, however, seen to have a very weak and dull Aura. This seems to be a direct consequence of their lifelong materialistic attitude negating and suppressing the development of consciousness, cultivating fear, envy, jealousy and other similar emotions. Such an attitude, in a way, taints their conscience and suppresses their spiritual self as a result of which their Auras appear to be suppressed too.

Babies and young children (below 5 years of age) see auras naturally. Infants normally look fixedly above the head of a person in front of them. When they don't like the color of the aura above the head, or if this color is much different from their parent's aura, they cry, no matter how much the person might be smiling. Children have much cleaner and stronger auras than most of adults, who are usually completely enslaved by the materialistic world and their unending desires.

Ivette Espinoza: Since you are just 14, I would recommend practising meditation for a few years and that too under the supervision of a trained Guru / Master. You can't take chances with matters which can create complications on physical and mental level, if not handled properly. You can come back anytime you want to ask something. Thx for visiting.
