Everyone has their own aura. An aura is a pocket of energy that surrounds you. You have an aura, your partner has an aura, so have your children, friends and even your pets have auras.
You may never have seen or felt your own aura but that does not mean that it does not exist. You have the ability if you wish to establish a strong connection with it.
See your aura as your own personal energy shield. It protects you from harmful influences from people and the world around you. So the sooner you recognize and honour it, the better you will feel.
TUNING INTO AURAS
It is much easier to see an aura, whether it is your own or someone else's than you might imagine. For most people, it takes only a couple of minutes to detect an aura. Once you have made this initial leap from seeing nothing to seeing something, you are on a fascinating path to seeing auras in more detail. You will notice them surrounding everyone you meet.
HOW TO SEE AURAS There are two ways you might see auras. The first is by simply noticing it with your eyes, and the second is by observing it with your mind's eye. Some people find they get better results from working with the latter i.e. inner vision.
It does not matter which method you use - there is no right or wrong way to see auras it's just whichever method works best for you. HOW TO SEE AURAS WITH YOUR INNER VISION You already use your inner vision, often without being aware of it when you think of something that triggers your imagination. For example when you remember an event you are seeing it with your inner vision. You do not make any special effort to do this - it just comes naturally.
This method works equally well with auras. All you need to do is look closely at the person or animal whose aura you wish to study, fix their image in your mind, and then look away. Next, close your eyes and remember the image. You might see it in detail or simply in silhouette. Can you see the aura surrounding it? Believe in the image that comes to you and resist any temptation to alter it in any way if it does not match what you were expecting to see. Write down what you have observed either in words or pictures, so you can compare notes for next time you practice this exercise. Keep practicing and it will become second nature to you.
WHAT THE COLOURS MEAN
Although auras can change colour according to our moods and our physical and emotional well being, we generally have one colour that is always present in our auras. This colour says a lot about us, because it describes our attitudes and beliefs. The interpretations given below are only suggestions but I have found them useful; however you may begin to develop your own ideas once you start to develop your aura reading skills.
This is a vibrant colour to find in anybody's aura. It indicates that the individual is enterprising, dynamic & competitive. Often they enjoy being active and have a love of sports. Clear red indicates someone who loves life and lives it to the full. However, a dull red indicates anger or resentment.
Orange is a lovely warm and energising colour and someone who has an orange aura is very positive and confident. This person goes through life believing all things will go well. Beware, of someone who has an overly bright orange aura has it often indicates an egotistical character.
A clear green aura is found surrounding loving and affectionate people they instinctively want to create harmony for others. This may make them overly anxious to please and they may be taken advantage of. They have a great love of the outdoors and nature. Watch out for someone with a harsh green aura - they are often stubborn and inflexible to any new ideas.
People with yellow auras tend to be life's thinkers. They would never rush into a decision. You may find them outgoing and very sociable. However, beware of someone with a murky yellow aura and they are probably less than truthful.
Blue is the colour that belongs to someone who is idealistic and who has strong beliefs about what is right or wrong. They are often a seeker of spiritual knowledge and could be drawn to practice some form of healing. However, a dark blue aura indicates someone who is conservative in their views and afraid of change
People with purple auras right through from pale lilac to rich purple indicate someone with a strong sense of spiritual purpose. They are humanitarian and care deeply about the fate of others. A clear purple indicates a strong psychic ability.
A gold aura is rarely seen. Someone with a gold aura has a tremendous amount of potential and the ability to make a big contribution to the world. They have a deep sense of spirituality and visionary qualities. However, if someone has a dirty gold aura - take care. They have a strong materialistic streak and will stop at nothing to gain power.
A person with a rich brown aura is very practical and down to earth, and often has a strong love of animals. They enjoy working out of doors and are often very talented at growing plants. A red-brown aura indicates someone who likes to take care of others.
Do not be alarmed if you find someone with a black aura, it is not necessarily a negative sign. It usually indicates the person wants to hide away from the world for a time. A black aura, whether it is completely black or with streaks usually indicates someone who is physically exhausted. A dense black aura indicates a needy person who leeches energy from others.
By learning to read and interpret your own and the aura of others, you will find it opens up a new understanding of the people who surround you in your daily life. It could transform your relationships, career and health.
