We are all made up of energy. If you quickly rub your hands together, stop, and then hold them near each other you can feel it.
Every cell in our body is composed of atoms of energy thus making us energetic beings. Learning how this energy works and how to keep your energetic vibrations high is something I LOVE learning about.
So when I discovered auras I got super excited! (I mean pretty-colored energy that radiates from your body?! Sign me up!) Ya see, our skin can only contain so much of this energy and the rest radiates around us – outside of our body, creating our auras.
Here is everything you need to know about auras and how to discover your own aura…
What Is An Aura?
“Every living organism is surrounded by an electromagnetic energy field, called an aura. This field vibrates at different frequencies and reflects your state of mind, body and inner being.
Every color has a different vibrational frequency and is associated with various chakras or energy centers in your body. Your aura colors are determined by physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states of being.” (courtesy of Chakra Shack)
Ya know when someone stands a bit too close for comfort…they enter your “bubble?” It feels that way because their energetic field is touching your energetic field (aka your aura).
These energies generate at our energy centers (called chakras) and our aura can show when these centers are out of balance.
What Do The Aura Colors Mean?
The colors of your Aura are neither good nor bad, superior or more spiritual than another. Every color has a polarity and unique representation relating to the individual.
However, aura colors can show imbalances in your energy and even specific physical insight as well. Here are the colors with their common meanings.
RED AURA – this color can be positive or negative energies. It can mean healthy pride and a sense of self- worth or it can mean anger and anxiety.
It is a dynamic energy of action. Physically a red aura gives insight to the heart and blood circulation.
- Dark Red – centered and grounded

- Bright Red – competitive, energetic, sensual and passionate
- Pink – loving and artistic (and love in general, feeling very loved/loving)

It represents emotional and creative energies (intellect and focus also). Physically giving understanding to a person’s reproductive system.

GREEN AURA – Quite common among teachers and healers, it is the color of love and healing. Someone with a green aura works to help the world in whatever way they can.
It is the color of growth, reflects a loving nature and a strong affirmation for living a life with joy. Physically it provides info on the heart and the lungs.

- Violet – psychically powerful and wise
- Lavender – imaginative and creative
- Muddy Violet – this person’s psychic gifts are being blocked by some internal force
OTHER COLORS – A BLACK AURA means someone is pulling energy towards them like a black hole. A WHITE AURA means newness and purity. A white aura is common in children or someone who is very enlightened.
A SILVER AURA can indicate abundance but more of a gray tone could mean that person is filled with fear. While someone with a GOLD AURA is in direct communication with the Divine (often found in great spiritual leaders).
How To See Your Aura
Some people are able to see other people’s auras, and it is said with practice that anyone can. It is simply a matter of paying attention more, tapping in to your intuition and using your peripheral vision.
Luckily, today we also have access to some awesome gadgets that can take a photo of you AND your aura! Your aura can be measured by the biofeedback received through your hands while placed on sensors (this is just as unique as your thumbprint FYI).
Most aura portraits are taken with the Aura Camera 6000 (invented by Guy Coggins):
“When we realize that everything originates from within, we’ll see that all the love, peace, and happiness in the universe is inside, waiting to be expressed. That’s when we’ll discover pure joy. We can have that. It’s really so simple and easy when you learn about unique splendor of your own energy.”
I learned about these aura photographs/video stations and HAD TO GIVE IT A TRY!
My Experience Getting My Aura Read
Tony and I found an awesome shop in Laguna Beach, California that has one of these aura video stations (they actually use the Aura Video 7 Station). It is called The Chakra Shack and they offer 2 packages for the aura reading (check them out here).
You sit down, remove all crystals and devices (phone etc) from your body and have your photo taken. Then, you place your hand on sensors to measure your biofeedback/energy levels. And that’s it! It only takes a few moments.
Next, someone will show your photo and the dominant colors present, then walk you through your chakras.
We loved our guide Liz, who provided such a lovely and detailed breakdown of each chakra. Which ones are in need of some balance, some steps we can take to make adjustments and even suggest a crystal to help (the shop is full of gorgeous crystals, candles, books and all things woo to guide you back to balance in whatever way you need).
Thank you Liz and Chakra Shack for such an awesome experience…we will be back!!
