Your Aura and Energy
If a person walks past, very close to you, they may unintentionally steal some of your energy. If someone suddenly reaches out and grabs your arm, they are interrupting the flow of energy around your body.
An example of this might be a time when you were talking to someone and you thought they were standing too close to you. You may have even thought to yourself, “They’re in my space,” and then you backed away. Even this slight intrusion into your aura or ‘space’ can interrupt your personal flow of energy and you may feel like you have been slimed.
An aura is usually 3 feet from your physical body, however, an incest or rape survivor has an aura about 50 feet around them, which means in a movie theater or a bus/train you sit in their stuff!!! I can clean this for you.
Auras are commonly associated with people. Sometimes we even use them to describe people: “He has an aura about him,” or “She just has a glow about her”. But in fact, all living things generate this field of energy. When associated with a person, the aura can provide insight into the spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of the individual.
How To Read Auras?
To read auras, you need to know about the different aura colors and their significance.
Life is full of colors and like so many other things on your path, color also has meaning. They are representations of messages from your higher self, God, dreams, whatever the label. But you don’t have to be a Metaphysician to understand the importance of color in your life. It exists in everyday experiences.
Many people associate the color white with God, pink with love, and purple with royalty or spirituality.

How To See Aura Color?
- Stand or sit several feet away from a mirror.
- Make sure you have a solid, light-colored background behind you.
- Look at yourself in the mirror.
- Focus your attention on an outlining spot on your body. (I focus on the area between my neck and shoulders.)
- At first, you might see a thin white or transparent image around your body.
- This white or transparent image will appear as a nearly-clear form of energy, but you’ll definitely see it.
- Remain focused.
- Eventually, that white or transparent image will expand and will become a noticeable color (on me it’s a thin yellow outline of my body).
- At this point, you’re seeing something that your mind isn’t used to seeing, which triggers your brain to start thinking, and the aura disappears.
- It’ll come back quickly and will disappear just as quickly as soon as you think about what you’re seeing.
- If you can remain focused, your aura will glow brightly! Mine will go from green to blue, depending on the day but for the most part, it’s green.
If you can remain focused long enough on your inner aura, you’ll find that it will expand in waves showing an outer aura, perhaps coming in a little closer but gradually going out further away from your body and enveloping other colors.
At this point, I see a purplish color, but once I lose focus, then, I lose both the outer and inner aura quickly when the aura expands.
The easiest way for me to see my aura is by using what I call the ‘Magic Eye Method’. This is something I came up with when I meditate in a mirror and applied this theory to see my aura. When you view a Magic Eye picture long enough, another 3d picture emerges from the original picture.
Here are the directions to see the 3D image inside of this picture: (from the 3d magic eye website)
- Hold the center of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry.
- Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance.
- Very slowly move the image away from your face until the two squares above the image turn into three squares.
- If you see four squares, move the image farther away from your face until you see three squares.
- If you see one or two squares, start over!
- When you clearly see three squares, hold the page still, and the hidden image will magically appear.
- Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image.
- The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes.
- The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes.
Eventually, you can train yourself to focus out of your non-dominant eye (in my case, my left eye) which triggers a different visual brain reaction in your ability to see three-dimensional figures (and subsequently, your aura) within these pictures.
Use this same type of unconventional viewing when trying to see your aura. Stay focused, yet don’t ‘think’ about what you’re seeing. See how far you can extend your aura.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are auras the same as energy waves?
Energy waves transfer energy in the form of electricity and magnetism at the speed of light. Similarly, our auras are energy fields that carry our personal energy or vibrations to and fro between our physical body and the cosmos.
Why is my aura color shown outside my body?
Your aura is your inner light or energy that you radiate toward the universe. It is an electromagnetic field around you that is shown outside your body. Whatever is the color of your aura, it will be reflected outside of your body.
Does each aura layer have a color code?
Yes, it’s strongly believed that each layer of our aura has a different color and the colors represent our physical, spiritual, behavioral, and emotional traits.
Can reading others’ auras cause you to feel drained or negative?
There are many spiritual people out there who read others’ auras and help to cleanse them. However, if you are a sensitive or empathic person, being strongly connected to someone else’s energy might leave you feeling drained.
What does it mean if I have both red and white aura?
Our aura has seven layers and each layer has a different color that interprets our physical, psychological, and spiritual traits. The colors might change with time as we evolve. You can read more about the meanings of each color in this article.
