An introduction to Auras

The Aura is the energy field surrounding our physical body like a protective field. Here, we absorb and exchange energies with our environment and other people. Knowing your energy field will make you aware of other energies around you far quicker.

Are there times when you feel uncomfortable in crowded places? Are there moments when you feel as if your space is being invaded? Some people can only come so close to you. This is your energetic field being invaded or triggered.

There can also be times in which you might feel uneasy in the presence of a certain person. Other times you might feel when you enter a room, you have this sense that something is wrong. The human aura is a strong electromagnetic field that can expand up to 3 inches and more from the physical body. We give off electrical energy and absorb magnetic one this way we are able to sense other people’s energy from a distance.

You can feel this energy force in a room full of people, where varying energies, positive and negative, are being interchanged.

The aura is an extension of our physical bodies

The aura is an extension of our physical bodies, be it strong or weak, fair or otherwise, light and bright or dull and dense. Every living organism possesses an auric field and emanates energy. This means that every plant, tree, animal, bird, and person is exchanging energy with their environment.

There are seven layers of the aura, but the most accessible to human perception is the first three layers surrounding the human body. Auras can be seen with the eyes wide open if you are trained well enough, or they can also be seen psychically with the eyes closed.

In my work as a Tarot Reader

I read my client’s energy field when I do Readings or Healing for them. This helps me to understand their overall well-being and gives me deep insights into their psyche. You should never read an Aura without the person’s permission; otherwise, this would be unethical, and you would go against the Code of Ethics of Energy work.

The Aura contains different colours.

Each colour holds its own meaning, and those trained in Reading the colours of the Aura can gain a lot of information through this. Below is a description of the meanings different colours hold, which were taught to me during my training of 10 years at the Arthur Findlay College, and how they are interpreted in Spiritualism.

The interpretation of the colours can vary, below are just examples. In the end, you should trust your intuition on this.


This is a confusing color. There is nothing wrong with black in one’s Aura. Black generally means one is shielding oneself from outside energies. This can also mean being unbalanced; one is hiding something or keeping secrets. A black ring usually indicates some form of abuse, adults who have not dealt with early abuse will carry this black ring till they are healed.


This comes in different shades. Gifted people have shades of blue in their Aura. Intuitive people will show pale blue colouration within the purple, bursting out like rays of sunshine emanating from the heart. A deeper blue can indicate loneliness or depression. An intense blue shows devotion, honesty, and sound judgment, whereas muddier shades of blue indicate a domineering person.

Communication, Truth, Spoken word, and public speaking. Friendships & Loyalty (Set idea about friendships, if not lived up to, the friendship will end) Music, Art, and Dance. Distance Healing. Colour is not easy to live with. Trust.

Cold colour – Expectations ( all in or all out attitude)

Colour of the feminine.

A Guide To Seeing Auras

It is possible to learn how to see Auras, and of course, it might take some time, so don’t get frustrated. Just try again and again, and you will slowly develop your gift to do it.

Seeing the aura takes your eyes slightly out of focus. If you’ve ever been able to see those holographic picture-in-a-picture things, then you shouldn’t have any trouble seeing auras as you do precisely the same thing with your eyes.

If you struggle with this, why not close your eyes and try to see the aura with your inner eye? We are all different, and some people find it easier that way.

closed eyes

Choose a training partner to do this exercise.

Have your training partner stand in front of a light-colored wall in a dimly lit room. Have your partner hold one finger in front of their face, about 6 inches from their chin.


Now focus your eyes on their finger, not their face. Have them remove their fingers but keep looking at the same spot. You’ll have to relax your eyes a bit to do this. Now, using that same relaxed vision, if you look at them, you should be able to see what looks like a little line that runs all around them a couple of inches out from their body.


The next layer out is even fainter and may have associated colors. The different meanings of the colours vary widely depending on who you’re talking to. My advice in this area is to open up your awareness and see which colours are most often associated with which types of people and their behaviours.


Gear up for the challenge

Play with this a bit. Does their aura change when they think happy thoughts? Sad thoughts? Angry thoughts?

For this reason, ask your partner to change their thoughts and see how their aura colour changes.

As you work with this, you’ll gradually become aware of even more subtle layers of energy that surround people. You may also find that you can feel another person’s chakras and even discern their dominant chakra.
