Everything you need to know about the Aura
What is an aura? If you are reading this article, chances are you are conscious of the fact that we are infinite souls, merely having a human experience in the earthly physical realm.
The energetic frequency of our true essence, our spirit, is constantly vibrating out to the Universe, which creates a field of energy around us. Some people can feel it, some people can see it, and others would simply call this our own personal “vibes.” This energetic field around us is what we call our aura.

Learning to see auras
There are many people who can already see auras; and by seeing, we mean physically see the auras, not to be confused with visualising or “feeling” the energy. These people typically have already had a head start at developing their many mystical abilities, such as psychic and extrasensory abilities, also known as the clair capabilities. These include clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance.
These people have accessed and applied growth to their natural abilities, so they are able to view and feel their own and others’ auras with a strong sense of perception.
By reading the auras of other people, (and your own), you can uncover a lot of valuable insight.
The aura typically extends about 3 feet from your physical being. An important and interesting fact to note is this: people who have gone through an extremely traumatic experience may have an aura that extends much farther – even up to 50 feet around their body.
For you, this means you need to be aware that this energy affects you as well; it is helpful to feel and notice others’ auras around you so you are not taking on any negative energy
Below are a few steps to help you see your own aura, as well as the auras of those around you. These tips are brief, so it is always helpful to seek guidance from your Higher Self or other resources to continue in the practice.
Start with yourself
You can view your own aura first, which will accelerate your capabilities with other people. A good start is to go in front of a mirror, and be sure that you have a lighter, solid background behind you (white is always best).
While looking at yourself, try and focus your visual attention on the appearing outline of your body. As you practice, you may start to view a whitish or transparent shape around your body – this is our natural clear aura of energy, prepping your eyes to become conscious of the aura. Try your hardest to hold your concentration, and eventually that shape around your body will expand… and a very noticeable colour will reveal itself.
Remember, this is typically when your brain gets confused, (because it is not used to seeing this), and the outline may disappear. Keep trying, and it will inevitably reappear… That is, until you start to think too much about what you are seeing! But as long as you stay focused, (and the more you practice), you will soon be able to view your true aura in a vibrant and radiant colour.
Strengthen your peripheral and 3D vision
Our brains are so used to moving at light-speed at all times, so day-to-day, our standard vision is constantly being affected by the way our brain “edits” the information we absorb. To trick your brain, try to stare at one spot for at least a minute, and allow your focus to relax, soften, and cross.
Focus on the spot where your third eye resides. Now, without looking around, try and be mindful of noticing objects just out of your straight sight, in your peripheral vision. Try not to think about it, or pay much attention to the outside objects, but meanwhile try and conduct conscious breathing while practicing this training exercise.
Another great method is similar to the 3D or “Magic Eye” images. If you are able to quickly soften your vision to see these types of images, you are a great candidate for viewing auras. If you have trouble with these types of artistic works, try practicing as much as possible so you are able to adjust your vision nearly instantaneously.
Try on other objects
Everything in our physical realm is absorbing, harboring, and emanating energetic frequencies from and to the cosmos – at all times. Once you have developed the adjustment of your literal eyesight, start practicing on other people, and even plants!
Aura – Practice makes perfect
Nothing in life comes without practice. By staying mindful to continuously build and grow this inborn capability we all hold inside, it is a metaphysical guarantee that this skill will get stronger and stronger – and eventually become second nature to you!
Aura Colour and Meanings
Below you can find a brief synopsis of each colour aura, and what it means to that person’s physical and spiritual well-being. We have also previously discussed this in our article about Aura colours, but here we’ve added a few more colours to consider the meaning of when seen in someone’s aura..
Red aura: Red aura individuals are the epitome of the most dynamic aspects of life: energy, adventure, and enthusiasm. They are spontaneous (sometimes to a fault), and oftentimes are temperamental.
Strong in spirit, body and mind, they are also helpful, resilient, and genuine. They have a talent with sports as they are not injury-prone, and are quite successful in most tasks they put their mind to.
Orange aura: Those with an orange aura have a social-minded and generous spirit. Having others around is never a problem, and they enjoy being the center of attention. Confident, they also have a charm that radiates from their skill of empathy of feeling others’ emotions.
Although they can have a quick temper, they are typically quick to forgive if their pride is shown an apology of worth. They are also quick to rush into situations, and only consider the consequences later
Yellow aura: Yellow aura individuals are the definition of eccentric. They are intelligent, logical, unusual and analytic. With excellent observation skills, they thrive at careers within innovation; they may be an incredible inventor or scientist.
Their love of hard work and analysis can show itself by being a workaholic, but they are also extremely inspirational in any venue they stand up to. They may be happily introverted, but should stay aware of becoming depressed if stressed. They are empathic, being able to read people easily, though may come off as critical.
Green aura: Those with a green aura are the utmost in areas of creativity, determinism and loyalty. This aura shows an energy of being hardworking and very down-to-earth, but may prove to have perfectionist tendencies. This
Earth-based colour aura can also be related to Gaia-like activities, like cooking or gardening and the like. They prefer the beautiful in addition to the practical…staying grounded and keeping stability while also appreciating any beauty.
Blue aura: The blue aura individual is the master of communication – they are full of charisma, have an eloquence about the way they speak, and are extremely balanced when it comes to matters that require both logic and the heart.
Blue auras are inspirational by nature and therefore great motivators and peacemakers. They are also organized and have a necessity for clarity in situations, but they can also be workaholics if they take on more than they can handle, and personal relationships will suffer.
Purple aura: Purple aura individuals are very psychic, being strongly attuned to others’ feelings and emotions. While internally and emotionally sensitive themselves, they are actually quite philosophical and have an ever-seeking mind for knowledge.
Their minds and subconscious are very intuitive, and these people never seem to stop exploring in every sense of the word. They are mysterious, infectiously interesting, and at times secretive.
Pink aura: Pink aura individuals are giving off and have an immense amount of love, by nature. They enjoy genuine affection and also enjoy being around those they love/who love them. They are one of the “entertainers” of the aura colours, being skilled at hosting events and gatherings of epic proportions. Their time spent giving to others is plentiful.
They take good care of themselves, both physically and nutritionally. They also have a flair for romance, and stay faithful once they have found their soulmate and/or twin flame. Pink auras contain natural healers, with strong psychic, creative, and imaginative abilities. They are especially empathic and compassionate towards the needs of other people, and absolutely despise any sort of conflict or injustice. They are always striving to make the world a better place, and will sacrifice themselves for the good of humanity.
White/Silver aura: Seeing people with a white or silver aura means they are tremendously gifted in both the physical and spiritual realms. Their karma and karmic debt of this lifetime is attached to how well they use these gifts, becoming a huge piece of their predestined life lessons and soul contract. These people are intuitive and psychic, while also holding strong characteristics that display being practical and sensitive toward others. They’re able to vibe with most anyone, so they make wonderful counselors and teachers.
Adaptable and versatile, they are able to take advantage of anything that life throws at them, literally and figuratively. This, along with their high intellect, creates a personality that can make positive choices, and also enable them to be excellent at following through to make sure it gets done. They’re fortunate in regard to a very natural charisma, reflecting a look and personality that is universally accepted as very attractive.
Gold aura: People that have a gold aura have a strong appreciation for beauty and art. They like to keep themselves surrounded by, and adorned in, all things they consider beautiful. They are life’s natural hosts and entertainers, always enjoying being the center of attention and being around company as much as possible.
They’re also masters of not only taking that attention in, but giving it out as generously as possible. The charm emanated from someone with a gold aura naturally adds to a feeling of positive vibration while around them – whether in how they come off to others, or how they actually affect the energy of others. You’ll feel well-listened to around these folks, creating a sense of importance and comfortability in their presence.
Gold auras do not like to be criticised, and tend to feel vulnerable when their flaws are shown to the world. That being said, they may not always ask for help when needed, as they love to feel independent and achieved in status.
