An Introduction to Auras
What Are Auras?
Auras are the electromagnetic fields that surround our bodies and all other objects. Everything has energy, everything puts off an aura. These auras are colors that basically surround us or an object. These colors can be different colors and they can change depending on moods, or what we are currently going through.
Auras are different colors and each color has different meanings. These correlate with the chakras and can also tell of ailments or the state of a persons energy.
- Red --> Physical body. This shows grounded, strong willed, power, passion. (more pink can represent love)
- Orange --> Reproductive and Emotions. This can show creativity.
- Yellow --> Life energy. Spiritual awakening the beginning of the process
- Green --> Heart. Loving, open, healing. This also appears when you have just healed.
- Blue --> Communication. Open minded, communicative, clairvoyant, purity
- Indigo --> Third eye. intuitive, psychic abilities.
- Violet --> Crown. spiritual, awakened. Magical.
Just as with any color, auras have different shades of the colors. If the colors appear muddy, then that could be an indication that something is wrong with the persons energy. While a brighter, crisper color can mean that everything is in alignment.
"The aura given out by a person or object is as much a part of them as their flesh." Lucian Freud
Ways to Read an Aura
How do you read an aura? You can't just go around and see all these colors can you? Some can, but it takes practice.
A couple of ways to read :
- aura photography
- practice seeing auras
Aura photography is where you have a camera especially for the biofeedback. You place your hands on probes to receive this biofeedback and it takes the picture of your aura.
How to Read Aura Exercise
So, here's a little exercise to practice seeing auras. This takes time and practice, don't give up!
First, practice on yourself:
•Put your hand out in front of you, preferably with a white background behind it.
•Relax your eyes.
•Don't look at your hand but past it.
•Take time to notice if the lines around your hand become blurry
•You will then be able to start seeing colors (may be pale at first)
This can take time and practice. If you do not see it the first few times, keep going.
Once you have practiced seeing your own aura, you will be able to practice on others. Have others stand with a white background behind them, just a plain white wall is fine. Then just as you looked past your hand, look past the person. A picture of a person with a white background will work just as well.
