Learn About Your Aura Energies and How to Change Them

Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies.

An aura is the emanation of this energy which surrounds you, it is your life force or human energy field.

Aura Colors

The concept of auras was first popularised by Charles Webster Leadbetter, a former priest of the Church of England and a member of the mystic Theosophical Society.

There are seven layers to the auric system emanating from the body, each has its own frequency and are interrelated affecting a person’s emotions, feelings and health.

You have many different bands of colours in your aura with each having a different meaning.

The ability to see auras is considered a psychic ability and through aura readings psychics can yield information about a persons emotional and energetic state.

What is an aura?

The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human body and every organism and object in the universe.

This magnetic energy field is made up of individual yet interrelated subtle auric bodies from the head to the toe, there are seven of these:

Physical auric body, Etheric auric body, Vital auric body, Astral body, Lower mental auric body, Higher Mental auric body and Spiritual body.

Your aura and its colours reveal information about your wellbeing and spirituality.

Auras often appear on the outlines of the human body known as the ‘halo’ effect, generally extending 18 inches or 2 feet from the outside of your body.

They can contract or expand depending on the persons situation and based on this they can either look like a thin outline or be very intense distinguishable; they have sharp edges and their colours can streak out from the body.

History of reading Auras:

In a 1945 essay, psychic healer Edgar Cayce wrote that he believed all things animate and inanimate – give off energy and in turn have an aura.

Aura reading was created by clairvoyant Lewis Bosthwick in the 1970s in Berkeley California, the technique was created by channeling with 140 spirits over a 3-year period, by running the soul essence or energy through the body and increasing the communication between the spirit and body.

Readings look at your personal energy system as represented in the layers of your auric bodies in each layer of your aura the reader sees different colours.

Depending on the colours and colour combination, a person’s aura can be analysed and used as a tool to strengthen the understanding of a life path.

A strong aura will have bright colours indicating a powerful energy, which shows you are mentally, physically and emotionally strong.

Science of Aura:

These days the aura can be picked up by camera through Kirlian photograph and recently scientific researchers in Spain discovered ‘synesthesia’ a neuropsychological phenomenon detailing how psychics see auras.

Auras around humans are composed in part from electromagnetic (EM) radiation that spans from microwave and infrared (IR) radiation on the low frequency end to UV light on the high-frequency end.

Seeing someone’s aura can tell you a lot about that person and his or her character, a bright clean aura indicates a person is healthy and emotionally strong whereas a grey dark aura indicates the opposite that there may be some imbalance.

An aura reading can inspire you to make changes that will improve the signals you radiate.

It can also diagnose any health issues including diseases before any physical symptoms appear.

Such readings can raise your consciousness, aid in spiritual development and empower you to a happier, healthier life.

Ways to see the colours of an Aura:

Each aura colour has a specific meaning and there are different methods that can be used in helping you see the colours of an aura.

Aura Sensing:

The best way to practice seeing auras is to sense them, maybe start paying attention to how someone makes you feel in their presence.

Are there specific physical sensations you feel? Maybe anger, nervous, calm or excited.

Based on this what aura colour would you attach to this person and their energy?

Through practice of seeing auras, the colours will become easier to identify.

Peripheral Vision:

In seeing aura colours, we can also call on our peripheral vision which has healthier photosensitive cells than the central part of our retina.

You can practice by concentrating on a single spot for about 60 seconds and allow your gaze to soften as you go.

As your peripheral vision gets stronger you will be able to see aura colours much more easily.

Identifying colours:

As colour is the easiest part of an aura to see and read, it is one of the major aspects of the aura.

Taking note of the presence – or absence of colour in someone’s aura is a great way to hone one’s ability to see and read auras.

This will give you a better understanding of aura colours and their meaning.


Once you’ve honed your reading aura colours skills, you can now practice reading your own aura.

One good exercise is to relax your entire body in a meditative state and place your hands in a lighted area with your fingers pointing at the dark area.

Keep your eyes slightly opened and look at the light area emitting from the tips of your fingers, you may see light extending from your fingers.

Continue to practice this exercise to get a better understanding of aura colours and their meaning.
