A Fast Guide to Reading Auras and What Their Colours Mean
Take a moment to close your eyes and feel your body. Feel the energy channelling through your physical being, and your mind, and really feel what's going on. While you may be able to feel emotions, positive or negative, or you may feel stressed or focus on your breathing, as you do in meditation, one of the longest-standing practices in the world is to see your aura.
The word 'auras' refers to the energy fields that surround each and every one of us, as well as every living being, and usually includes both an energy and a colour. Being able to read these auras on yourself and other people is a great way of reading the energy we emit and channel.
With this information, you can understand what's going on inside you, allowing you to process blocked energy and trapped emotions that could be holding you back. In today's post, I'm going to talk you through my quick guide on how to read auras and what they mean.
Treat this as an introduction to auras, if you will.
How to Recognise Your Aura
First, in order to read your aura, you need to know of its existence, which takes a little more than just accepting that it's there around you. A really simple way to do this is to stand in front of a mirror with a plain or white background behind you.
Let your eyes calm and stop trying to look for something, but instead relax and see what comes up. Try to minimise distractions for a few minutes while you look, and just be present in the space you're in.
Over time, maybe soon, maybe over a few attempts, you should begin to see a white light surrounding you. Focus on this light, and eventually, other colours will come.
Sensing the Aura that Surrounds You
You don't always need to see your aura but can instead intuitively sense it. Like meditation, move yourself in a place with no distractions or interruptions and get relaxed and still. Hold your hands around six inches from your body. Now move your hands, palming facing towards you, up and down your body. Sense what colours you feel within these movements.
A top tip for better results here is to rub your hands together fast, creating heat between your hands, and then trying the method above since this will help open the chakras within your body to help channel the energy more effortlessly.
Understanding the Colours of the Aura
It will take a bit of time to practice seeing the colours in your mind's eye or feeling them with your being. Don't worry. Sometimes the answers will be strong, and other times milder. Just be patient and take it as it comes. However, once you reach a point where you can see or feel colours, you need to know what they mean, which is what I'm going to focus on for the rest of this guide.
Blue – The grounded. If someone is able to stay calm, grounded, and focused in stressful situations, you'll see a blue. This indicates a relaxed nervous system and serenity within their being.
Green – Healing. Green is a great colour that reflects beings filled with peace. Green is the colour of nature and a colour that indicates healing properties or someone who can help heal others.
Turquoise – Mastery. This colour is all about focus, organisational skills, and being a leader. These people have a great influence over others and are very effective and managing a team.
Purple – While not a common colour, purple reflects the spiritual connection of someone. Someone with a purple aura is very spiritual and will be wise when it comes to the universal connection.
Pink – The milder form of purple, pink, is usually a temporary colour that sounds balance between the spiritual and physical worlds' connection.
Red – Governing the pink and the purple colours, red is usually a material colour, usually suggesting materialistic thoughts, but can also indicate passion and spirit. A friction colour, this colour can be positive or negative.
Yellow – Associated with joy and freedom, yellow is all about the awakening of the soul and someone reconnecting with their inner child's innocence.
Dark colours – Including grey or brown, these dark and dirty colours are signs of negative energy. This could suggest stress, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, disease, and even death.
White – While the base of all colours and existing within everyone, white with no other colours signify chaos within the being, and complete imbalance between mind, body, and spirit.
