How to See Auras and what their colors mean

Updated on September 23, 2015

The Colors of our Auras

My last post was on how to see auras and energy. This post I’m going to explain about the colors of our aura, and what they mean. Along with how to see someone else’s aura.

Everyone has an aura it is our life force. Knowing this and being able to look at someone and see the color of their aura can help us determine what state of mind they are in; for instance, If someone has a muddy red color around them, usually they’re angry and are going to fly off the handle if confronted. Blue usually is a peaceful color, connection to one’s higherself. Below are instructions on how to see Auras.

How to see another person’s Aura

The best way to be able to see someone’s aura is to look directly above the top of someone's head and look beyond, sort of like daydreaming. Try to unfocused your eyes, as if you’re not looking at anything at all. You will start to see an energy outline around the person. This is their aura. When you’re first starting out trying to see someone else’s aura, it is best to have a very soft illuminated background with no shadows. A blue sky or a white wall works best.

How to see your own Aura

Stand in front of a good size mirror, make sure the background behind you is plain white or a light color and there are no shadows. Then follow the same instructions on how to see another person’s aura.

PRACTICE, the techniques above for at least ten to fifteen minutes a day, and before long, you will be able to see aura’s around anyone at will.

Below is a small chart of the basic aura colors and their meanings.

Red - Powerful, energetic, competitive, sexual, passionate

Deep Red - Grounded, realistic, active, strong will power, survival-oriented.

Muddy red - Anger, anxiety or nervousness; danger stay away

Pink - Loving, tender, sensitive, sensual, affection, romantic relationship.

Dark Pink - Immaturity and or dishonest nature

Orange - Confidence or creative abilities.

Orange-yellow - Creative, intelligent, detail oriented, perfectionist, scientific.

Light yellow - Emerging psychic and spiritual awareness, optimism and hopefulness.

Bright yellow - Struggling to maintain power and control in a personal or business relationship, fear of losing control, prestige, respect, or power.

Gold/shiny and bright - Spiritual energy activated and awakened. Connected to one’s higherself.

Dark brownish yellow - A student, or one who is studying trying to make up for lost time by learning everything all at once.

Green - Represents growth and balance

Bright emerald green - A healer, someone who enjoys helping people

Dark forest green - Jealousy, resentment, feeling like a victim of the world. Blaming self or others, insecurity and low self-esteem, lack of understanding personal responsibility.

Soft Blue - Peacefulness, clarity, truthful, intuitive, connected to one’s higherself.

Bright royal blue - Clairvoyant, highly spiritual nature.

Dark or muddy blue - Fear of the future, fear of self expression, fear of facing or speaking the truth.

Violet - Psychic power of attunement with self, intuitive, visionary, futuristic ideas, artistic.

Lavender - Imagination, visionary, daydreamer

Silver - Abundance, both spiritual and physical, and or awakening to one’s higher-self

Gray - Health problems

Black - Draws or pulls energy of others into themselves. Causes chaos, anger, resentment.

White - Purity and truth, angelic qualities. Usually seen around newborns.

These are just some of the colors you can see in auras. If you want to learn more about the colors of Auras, I suggest the book The Awakened Aura: Experiencing the Evolution of Your Energy Body. You can find it and other books I recommend by clicking the following link.

Next post, I will be talking about crystals and other stones; how they can heal along with their protection abilities.

Until next time, stay safe, think positive, and share the wonders of connecting to your higher-self.

      Chris, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. However, everyone has an Aura. The Aura is your energy force, if you didn't have an Aura you wouldn't be alive. Once your soul leaves your body, so does the aura.

      Animallover11, That is a very good question. Sometimes a person will have several different colors in their aura, depending on what is going on with them. For example, someone could be spiritual and have blue in their aura, if someone is sick and their body is trying to heal there will be green in their aura as well. The Aura that you see around someone is their actual aura not a reflection. I hope this helps!

      I really liked this.. and I have a question, I've just started practicing seeing auras and I'm a little confused. Is the color you see around the person their aura, or is it a reflection of their actual aura. For example, if a person has an orange aura, would you see the color blue around them?
