What is an aura?
Auras are considered a projection of a human energy field surrounding each person. Essentially, auras are an external reflection of your spiritual state. Your aura can embody your thoughts, dreams and even desires.
A multitude of colors make up these ethereal energy fields. However, there is usually a dominant hue. This color reflects your most important features.
It is important to understand that auras are not static. Rather, they change depending on internal and external conditions. Humans are dynamic and complex beings, so it follows naturally that auras are just as complex and multifaceted as we are.
The colours of the aura
The colours of the aura may seem simple at first. They can be red, orange, yellow, green, purple, white and blue. Variations in colour, however, reveal deeper revelations. The aura colors may appear intact and shiny, or slightly muddy and faded. The quality of the color and the color itself can mean different elements of a person's true nature.
So what do the colors of the aura mean? Each
color is associated with different energies, traits and a general feeling of the Self. Before deciphering colors, it is important to cultivate a deeper understanding of auras as a spiritual concept.
The 7 auric bodies
In some Eastern religious traditions, the aura would be the representation of the auric body set, also called subtle bodies or psychic bodies. A subtle body is a "supersensitive envelope" or not perceptible by human sensory organs. Their number and denominations vary from school to school and their meanings are not always exactly the same but here is a list of 7 subtle bodies that synthesizes the different information found.
- The Physical Body: Physical impressions such as comfort and pleasure.
- The Etheric Body: Attitude towards oneself as self-esteem and self-acceptance. This level reflects the nature of your inner self.
- The Astral Body: The astral body allows sensation and is the vehicle of feelings, emotions and desires. For this reason it is also called "body of desires" or "animal soul". It is the seat of the impulses of life that can be a source of good or evil depending on how consciousness makes use of it.
- The Mental Body: This is the seat of intellect and selfish consciousness, also called the ego. This level determines how you approach your relationships with others.
- The Causal Body: Connection to the Higher or Divine Self. This body represents the will to follow a greater truth beyond the material world.
- The Buddhist Body: The spiritual soul, the spiritual consciousness, or the faculty that would allow man to discern between good and evil. The vehicle of purity, of the universal spirit, conceived as a kind of inseparable fragment of the vemal body of which it would be the ultimate vehicle.
- The Vemic Body: The pure consciousness of being or the cosmic Self that would be the same in every entity of the universe. Traditionally denotes the true Self, as opposed to the ego, but with an infinitely larger universal model. In Hinduism this would be the essential principle from which every living being (Brahman) is organized
The principle of the different subtle bodies is also complex enough to give you a simplified image imagine that impressions coming from the material environment act first on the physical body, then are transmitted to the astral body that transforms an impression into sensation. One would explain the total absence of sensations of individuals experiencing ecstasy, their astral body being detached (insensitivity of physical limbs exposed to the flame of a candle, needle punctures …)
The meaning of aura colours
The colors of the aura can indicate your personality and your spiritual progress. That said, the colors themselves are just the tip of the iceberg. Achieving a full understanding of your true self is a journey of a lifetime.
In themselves, aura colors mean nothing without an accurate interpretation of aura colors. This service can be provided by people who follow spiritual traditions or holistic healers. Knowing how to analyze your own aura is both a skill and an art, but you can use the guidelines below for a basic understanding.
Aura color Violet
An aura of violet color is associated with a deep spirituality. Purple-dominated individuals are generally in tune with the emotions and moods of others around them. They also have a deep connection with nature and animals that is unique to this aura color.
