We all have energy fields that surround us and, to the untrained eye, you would never know they exist. Deborah Durbin shows us how to look for and interpret them…
Your aura is a type of energy field that is almost like a second skin. Auras are related to the electromagnetic field of the body and serve as a visual measure of our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual states. Everything you think or do can affect your aura, so it is usually evolving its state based on your mental thoughts and physical well-being. Auras are also affected by the energies of the planet, your environment and even radio frequencies and radiation. You aura surrounds your entire body, but is invisible to those who haven’t been taught how to see it. Read on to find out how to discover and read yours…
HOW TO SEE YOUR OWN AURA
Stand in front of a full-length mirror about three feet away. Do this during natural daylight, as this is the best light in which to see an aura.
• Allow your eyes to look at a point outside of the mirror, such as the top of the frame. Try not to look directly at your reflection and concentrate on this point.
• Don’t focus too strongly on the point. Instead, allow yourself to look through it, as if you are daydreaming.
• Out of the corner of your eye, you should soon see a glow. If you look directly at it, it will disappear, which is why it’s so important to continue daydreaming.
• Make a mental note of any colours you see. Each colour has a meaning. Patience and practise are key to seeing your aura easily.
WHAT YOUR AURA COLOUR MEANS
Purple: It’s quite possible that you’re psychic. At the very least, you’re a very spiritual person. You’re also not afraid to take control and tell it like it is.
Red: Mischievous by nature, you are an occasional materialist. You are physically fit and like to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Orange: You are passionate by nature and have super organisational skills. People love to be around you. Yellow You are a fun and jolly person with an upbeat view on life. Not much gets you down.
Green: You have a tendency to take on more than your share of work. You have a practical nature and like to get on with things.
Blue: Blue is the colour of loyalty, but you also take things to heart. You prefer your own company to others and like to have freedom in a relationship.
Now try this…
• Ask your volunteer to stand in front of a white wall.
• Stand a few feet away and look at the wall behind them.
• Relax and try not to focus on anything in particular, like you do when you’re daydreaming.
• You should soon see the colour of their energy field around them which will tell you how they are feeling right at that moment. The more you practise, the easier it will become to see auras.
HOW TO READ ANOTHER PERSON’S AURA
Now you’ve mastered the art of understanding your own aura, you can extend this knowledge to read more into others’ moods and personalities. Because we tend to only view our own auras with the help of a mirror, the light diffuses differently when we look at other people’s, so the same colours can have different meanings. Here’s how…
• Ask your volunteer to sit opposite you at a few feet away and get them to relax.
• Take a few deep breaths and close your eyes.
• Imagine a black screen under your eyelids. Try to let go of any thoughts that come into your head.
• Colours might come just in front of the black screen in your eyelids. They may only be spots of colour to begin with, but the more you sit and relax, the more defined the hues will become.
• Make a note of any colours and their meanings in accordance with the diagram below…
WHAT THEIR AURA COLOUR MEANS
Purple: A lot of psychic and spiritual energy needs to be released. Perhaps they should consider a spiritual career?
Red: Suggests anger, envy or rage at another person, or with themselves. This person is feeling very energetic – almost electrifying
Orange: Suggests this person has confidence in their abilities, but they worry about what others think of them and always like to create a good impression
Yellow: This golden hue links to feelings of happiness and contentment, but the person mustn’t take on others’ problems too much
Green: This person is healthy but overworked. The best cure is time to themselves to indulge and relax
Blue: This person wants to get their message out to the world and make the effort to communicate with like-minded individuals
