What Is My Aura?
Are there times when you feel uncomfortable in crowded places? Are there moments when you feel as if your space is being invaded? Can some people only come so close to you? This is most likely a reaction triggered by your own auric field when someone else's is intruding upon yours. You can often experience this subtle force field in a room full of people, where its varying energies, positive and negative, are being interchanged.
To see aura energy is a matter of taking your eyes slightly out of focus. If you've ever been able to see those holographic picture-in-a-picture things, then you shouldn't have any trouble seeing these feint glows as you do the same thing with your eyes.
If you had no luck whatsoever the first time you tried to see auras, go to a bookstore and grab a bunch of those holograph picture books and sit there until you learn to relax your eyes and see the hidden pictures. You shouldn’t have any trouble seeing the auras connected to everyone after that.
You can practice by yourself, but it’s better with the help of a with a partner. Have someone stand with their back against a pale colored wall and it is best to be in a dimly lit room. Have your partner hold one finger in front of their face, about 6 inches out from their chin. Now you want to focus each eye on their finger, not their face. Have them take their fingers away but keep looking at the same spot. You'll have to relax your eyes a bit to do this.
Now, using that same relaxed vision, if you look at them you should be able to see what looks like a little layer of energy that runs all around them a couple of inches out from their body. The next out is hazier, but each will have colors associated with it.
Play with this a bit. Does their auric color change when they think happy thoughts? Sad thoughts? Angry thoughts? When you question them about certain people and their relationships?
Some people can see auric energy instantly and others must work at it. Don't be put off if it takes a while. As you work with this, you'll gradually become aware of even more subtle layers of energy that surround people. You may also find that you can sense another person's chakras and even discern which is their dominant chakra, which tells you instantly how that person is likely to react to any given stimuli.
There are seven layers with aura colors, but the most accessible to the human perception are the first, second, and third layers surrounding the human body. An aura’s subtle colors can be seen with the eyes wide open, as well as being sensed psychically with the eyes closed.
The different meanings of the colors vary widely depending on who you're talking to. My personal advice in this area is to always see for yourself and open your awareness to find out what color seem to be associated most often with which types of people and their behaviors over time. But to get you started, here are the basic interpretations I know of where each color represents personality traits with positive and negative qualities. What color is your aura?
Colors are an important aspect of auric reading. When reading the auric field of others be sure to trust your own intuition over any hard and fast meanings such as these you see written here and elsewhere.
