What is an Aura?

What exactly is an aura? An aura is a color field surrounding a person, as is seen in pictures of religious art. It can extend several inches or even one foot away from the person. Auras are deemed important in many forms of spiritual practice, in metaphysics, Buddhist, and Hindu spirituality. Auras sometime connote a person of holiness or other powers. Psychic healer Edgar Cayce believed that all living things and objects have an aura. Various personality traits are associated with different colors of auras. Auras have also been described as the map of thoughts and feelings going on inside of a person. Some people can “feel” auras instead of seeing them, and understand what is happening with another person.

This is my Aura Picture

This picture of my aura was taken at a different metaphysical event about a year later than that of my late husband. I was reading tarot cards when his was taken. My aura has calming green and spiritual shades of blues.

Edgar Cayce Could Read Auras

Science tells us that color is our perception of the effects of wavelengths and their frequencies. Readings from Edgar Cayce affirm that the colors we see are associated with the way we perceive different rates of vibrations. It was also Cayce’s belief that the colors in our auras changed in accordance with the vibrations of our spiritual energies, our changes of mood, and the people surrounding us at the time. Cayce was a very religious man, and was unsure if he should use his gift of reading auras to help others. He was often able to heal them, both by reading auras and by going into trance states to “see” what was ailing a sick person. Finally, he concluded that if God gave him a gift to heal, he was meant to use it.

Edgar Cayce's Essay on Auras and Colors

Edgar Cayce on Auras & Colors
Edgar Cayce on Auras & Colors

I have found this book to be very useful in my study of auras. Edgar Cayce is so interesting, anything written about him is worth the time.

 

Auras can be Seen through Kirlian Photography

Most children are psychic until they are about seven, and many can see auras. But when they tell their parents, are usually told, “Be quiet, people will think you are crazy!” Sadly, I have met many adults during the course of my metaphysical studies who can recall having this gift when young, and were told not to use it. Auras can be seen by Kirlian photography though, and I have aura photos of myself and my late husband which were taken at Metaphysical Fairs. The colors themselves give information about a person’s emotional, physical, mental and spiritual state.

What if a Person Has no Aura?

This is an anecdote taken from Auras: An Essay On the Meaning of Color, by Edgar Cayce. One day Cayce was shopping in a large department store. He headed toward an elevator, but it was almost full. He realized it seemed dark inside that elevator, even though he was able to see the colors of clothing on the people. Cayce realized something was wrong, but could not figure out what that was. He signaled for them to go on, that he would wait for the next one. But then he realized what the problem was. The people in the elevator had no auras! The elevator cable snapped, the car fell to the basement, and everyone on the elevator was killed.

Color Affects our Moods

It was also Cayce’s belief that even if people could not see auras, they could wear clothes in colors that made them feel good, or that wearing certain colors could make a person feel bad. Sometimes a person can try on the same shirt in two colors, and will be surprised at how great it looks and feels in one color, but they do not like it at all in another color. Cayce had a friend who often wore blue, and enjoyed a happy, normal life. Then for a while, the friend began wearing red, and he became increasingly nervous and sick. He finally had a nervous breakdown, and when he recovered, returned to wearing blues again!

So why not go through the colors and see what they tell us about auras?

Blue Aura

Meaning of a Blue Aura

Blue has always been the color of contemplation, spirit, prayer and heaven. The sky is blue because gas molecules in the air cause light rays from the Sun to be scattered. At least this is the scientific explanation; Cayce believed blue was the true color of our Sun, and also the color of Jupiter, ruler of great thoughts and high mindedness. All shades of blue are positive, but the deeper shades are the best.

Pale blue shows a person of less depth, but they are trying to be more mature. The person may not be talented, but will still work hard to try to be in the field of their choice. Blue means many heartaches and headaches, but the person will keep going in the right direction. People with blue auras are caring, sensitive, loving, and have a desire to be of service. They are verbally skilled and good problem solvers.They also make great healers.

Aqua belongs to a hard working person more than the one with a light blue aura, but talent wise they are about the same. Aqua denotes intuitive knowledge, a good communicator, a seeker of truth, and a flexible, spiritual person open to new things. Those immersed in a darker blue have found their work in life and are immersed in it. They can be moody and are often nonconformists, but they have a mission in life and intend to fulfill it. They are very spiritually minded, and dedicate much time to causes to help others, also having talent in art, science or social work. They are often writers or singers. In the early Church people with blue auras were thought to have been assigned the highest attainments of the soul.

Red Aura

Meaning of a Red Aura

Red is a strong, primary color, indicating force, vigor and energy. People with red auras are physically active, passionate, courageous, leaders and entrepreneurs. It shows a temperamental person who is experiencing a lot of emotional turmoil, although they may not outwardly show it. This person will be domineering and quick to act. If the red is seen in spikes, it means the person is nervous. It is good to wear red on a day when you need confidence, like when going on a job interview, or giving a speech. If a person is going through a lot of issues at the time, red stones or clothing can bring more harmony into their life. Red also means a strong ego. An aura with a lot of red suggests a person should take some time to relax and calm down. Red is the color of planet Mars. It is also the color of war, strife and sacrifice.

Pink Aura

Meaning of a Pink Aura

Pink is usually a sign of immaturity, and is normally more commonly seen in young people. Sometimes they are too young to understand their psychic abilities, and are scared they can pick up on the thoughts and feelings of others. If a pink aura is seen in an older person, they can be immature adults, and have childish concerns.But these people also are tender, empathetic, able to care for themselves and others. They have healing ability and are good at public relations. When a person is speaking about someone they love, they often have a pink or rosy aura around them. A couple in love; sitting close together, often has a pink or rosy aura surrounding both of them.

Orange Aura

My Husband's Aura

The orange and bright yellows show his fun and artistic side, and the yellow circle above his head indicates intelligence. Green is for healing, and his calm demeanor was helpful to everyone close to him.

Meaning of an Orange Aura

Orange is the color of the Sun, a good and vital color which means thoughtfulness and consideration of others. People with orange in their aura are outgoing and fun. This person likes challenges, creative outlets, and is confident and spontaneous. They are wise, business oriented and have faith in themselves. A golden orange indicates self control, but a brownish orange shows a lack of ambition and a sort of “I don’t care” attitude. People with that shade of orange aura may be repressing their emotions, or are just plain lazy. Those with orange auras are often subject to kidney troubles. Orange represents glory, virtue, and the fruits of the Earth, all of these naturally connected with the Sun. People with orange auras are optimists who are usually the life of the party, and get everyone doing something fun and interesting.

Yellow Aura

Meaning of a Yellow Aura

Yellow is the second primary color. A golden yellow indicates good health and well being. Yellow aura people are playful and have a whimsical side. They are thoughtful, optimistic, knowledgeable, easy going, and entertaining. These are people who take care of themselves, don’t worry, and learn easily. In the picture of my husband’s aura, you can see a yellow spot above his head. This is a sign of high intelligence, and it is rare. I have never met a person as brilliant as he was. We learned in one of our classes that people drawn to the study of metaphysics are “a step above”, and on some level know they have lived before, and once knew the answers to many metaphysical truths. Normally people who take such a class together knew each other in another lifetime, as there are no accidents! Yellow is the color of concentration, and denotes love of learning. These people are happy, friendly and helpful, the ones who say something kind to make you feel better. A ruddy yellow makes them more timid or shy. Mercury is the planetary ruler of yellow.

Green Aura

Meaning of a Green Aura

Green is the color of health and vitality. It is helpful, strong and friendly. Many doctors, nurses, chiropractors, psychologists, spiritual counselors or massage therapists have a lot of green in their auras because it is a healing energy. These people are harmonious, lovers of people, animals and nature, sympathetic, compassionate and adaptable. They have the ability to calm others. You will see in the picture of my aura, it is mostly shades of blues with only traces of greens around the edges. One evening a few years ago, I was talking with my husband.. He said, “I forgot to tell you. The other night you were reading as you sat on the love seat. You were surrounded by a green aura, and it was a strong one, it radiated about 6-8 inches from you. At the time you seemed so peaceful and relaxed, I did not want to interrupt you.” Although I am a nervous person, people tell me I have the ability to calm others. An aura of green-blue makes a person trustworthy, and you can see that in my aura above. If it has traces of yellow, the health is somewhat weakened. A very lemony green, with lots of yellow, shows deceit in a person. So as a rule of thumb, a little of the deep, healing green is the most helpful in your aura. Too much green can indicate depression.

Indigo Aura

Meaning of an Indigo Aura

Indigo is a darker blue with a touch of purple, indicating a person who is a spiritual seeker in life. This person is searching for a cause or religious and spiritual experiences. Once they find what they are searching for, their auras will likely return to a darker blue. These people have deep inner feelings, are intuitive, idealists, are authentic, and have the ability to feel Universal love. They are often environmentalists or social workers. It appears that once the life purpose is set, the natural emanation of the soul is blue. Indigo is also the color associated with the third eye, and people with indigo in the aura are usually very psychic, and can use that gift to heal and help others. They are often clairvoyant or talented in reading people by their senses.

Violet Aura

Meaning of a Violet Aura

Violet is the color of the crown chakra, and people with violet in the aura are usually very involved in churches or other spiritual causes, often living a life of service to others. They are still searching for answers to their own spiritual questions, but know more than the average person and have something to offer as a spiritual teacher or guide. They often volunteer a lot of time to helping the less fortunate, or to fund-raising for different causes to make life less stressful for others. These are visionaries, creative souls, who are inspirational, non conformists, charismatic, and often are artists, therapists or healers.

Meaning of a White Aura

White is the perfect color, since it contains all the others. It is associated with purity, holiness and wholeness. If our souls are in perfect balance, then all our color vibrations would blend and we would have an aura of pure white. These are highly motivated people, philosophers, healers and bringers of light. We see pictures of Jesus with an aura of pure white, especially ones that depict him after the Resurrection. When he was seen risen at the tomb, Jesus said, “Touch me not for I am newly risen.” Cayce believes this was a warning, because at that time Jesus’ vibrations would have been so powerful that anyone touching him would have been killed. Some people see flashes of white when they meditate or just in their normal vision. This can be a change or awakening of their consciousness.

Gold Aura

Meaning of a Gold Aura

Gold corresponds to anything valuable and worthwhile, and may even be associated with the Divine. Jesus is often portrayed as having a gold or white aura, as are other religious figures. It is related to spiritual truths, and personal attainment. Cayce said that the highest color vibrations were contained in gold and purple, colors that have always been associated with royalty. He told people to wear those colors to find personal contentment and happiness.

Black Aura

Meaning of a Black Aura

Black is associated with the unknown or unconscious, and can correspond to evil, death, and repressed feelings. Normally a person with bad thoughts in mind would have a black aura. Many witches and Wiccans dress in black. I like nature and consider myself to be a Pagan, though not Wiccan. Clairvoyants often wear black as a protection against picking up negative emotions of those they read for, and I have also done that when I read tarot or astrology charts for people. Crystals are also used to keep away harmful entities. So it seems safe to wear the clothing, but if you see a black aura around a person, be very careful. The aura may be black mixed with sort of a pea soup green, but if somebody near you has it, they mean to do you harm. Get away.

Auras Explain Much about People

The world as we understand it is very small, and if we could see all the colors there really were, it would probably prove to be too much for us. Five hundred years before Christ, Pythagoras, the first philosopher, used colors for healing. Medical science today is just starting to see the possibilities in this method. If colors are vibrations of our spiritual forces, they should be able to help in healing our deepest sorrows and ailments. Together with music, which is a kindred spiritual force, there is great hope for the therapy of the future. Of course, right now we cannot transform all auras into a pure white light, but we can learn to detect signs of physical, mental, and nervous disorders through color, and begin to treat patients in a proper way.

Auras tell a great deal about people, and have much spiritual significance. The colors are a characteristic of the vibration of matter, and our Souls seem to reflect our colors back into the world. We are patterns, we project colors, and they are there for those who can see them. Teachers of metaphysics say more people can see auras now than ever before, just with their naked eyes. Perhaps we are evolving to a higher level? Let’s hope so.

Questions & Answers

  • In terms of auras, what do large orange spikes mean?

    Orange is a positive, energetic kind of energy. If the aura shows large spikes of orange, that would be an optimistic person spreading good feelings around.

  • Is there an aura color that indicates something terrible about a person?

    A gray one can indicate depression or deep sorrow. If it's really fading, it can mean the person is so ill they are ready to pass on. People about to die have a black aura in the last moments.

    Dark gray would probably mean to beware of the person. Also, red is a good, energetic aura, but if comes out of the body in spikes or flashes, it is unstable and can mean violence. A muddy, olive green is also undesirable. Basically, the colors change with our moods, but these darker ones, which mean danger or near death, are the worst ones.

    I can't see them, I can feel them. Can you see them?

  • My granddaughter is four. She said her pa's hair was green, then blue, then black, and was supposed to go back to rainbow color but it didn't. She saw this at the time he was passing. What did this mean?

    I am very sorry for your loss and for your granddaughter. She apparently can see auras. Blue is a very spiritual color; it means he felt peace and calm at the time of his passing. Green is a healing color, so maybe he felt whole right before he passed. Or he was a healer or doctor of some sort in life? By the time she saw the black, his soul had left his body, so he was already gone.

    I can't see auras myself, although I have been with people I love at their time of death. So I don't know if the aura goes back to all the colors after the soul goes on its journey to wherever you believe. So I can't answer why it didn't go back to rainbow.

    But the black is not bad, it's just the absence of color, and that is normal, since by that time he already left his physical body. The blue and green are both spiritual and calming colors, so at least he was feeling comfortable at the time and was not suffering. Blessings to you during this difficult time.

      Hello Welshgal,

      If the white glow is around your head, it can mean you are very spiritual and psychic. If it's above your head, it is a sign of high intelligence. I would interpret it as both.

      The yellow shows you are optimistic and fun to be with. Greens mean you have healing powers if you should try to develop them.

      The white is not common though, so it is the most important. I can't recall if I have a picture of my husband's aura on that article, if so, you can see the white area above his head. But either way you have great skill in healing others just by a soothing presence, or perhaps have a career in some kind of healing art. You are a very smart person, more than average, and inclined to be spiritual and help others as much as possible in your everyday life.. Best wishes to you.

      Hello Eren,

      Thank you for reading my Aura article! Yes, green and blue are very calming, so your partner would be great at that. Red is good for energy and rules your root chakra, so that's where our state of health comes from. Yours is good, and it's important to have a strong "base", so to speak. Pink is not always immature, I may revisit that. I could also say I bet you are young at heart and have a good rapport with young people. Pink is lighthearted too, so you are a positive person. Take care, Jean

      Thank you for publishing this. I've always been able to see auras and never really knew what the colors meant, but reading this makes sense as my partner's predominantly green aura is easily described as 'calming,' and my partner is really good at calming my wild emotions.

      For a while I had an orange aura, but I think it may have changed (I cannot see my own). I think mine may be more red and pink now (I am sort of immature and temperamental). This really helps.

      White is one of the most spiritual auras of all! Maybe your friend can't really see them? Plus they change with our emotional states. I can't see them, I "feel" them, I am clairsentient and feel the vibes from people. Don't worry about it. I am happy you enjoyed it. Thanks for telling me and taking the time. Jean

      This hub was very informative. I really enjoyed reading about all the colors and was glad to see my aura in here as well. Mine is white. Though according to my friend she says I have no aura which sort of bugged me. She would tell me that having me around made her feel calm. This was months ago though.

      Hi,

      The way I understand it, the little yellow ball is not common, and doesn't run all through the body. It's strictly an intelligence sign. When he got his, I was reading tarot at a fair, so didn't get to speak to the person taking the picture, though I always thought his was better.

      Like you, I have psychic abilities too, but also can't tap in anytime I want. I do have waking visions, so does my son, we both started having them at age 25. A friend who is a clairvoyant says I'm clairsentient, that I "feel" things. I find this truer as I get older, and it helps my tarot readings a lot. I have never seen an aura photo where facial features are shown, and I go to a big metaphysical fair very November (where I spend too much on gemstone jewelry.

      Those psychic abilities do have a mind of their own. I don't see departed loved ones. But my husband always used to tell me he loved me before we went to sleep, and hold my hand. I wake up some nights and morns, to find my hand still reaching for his, and my face is wet. Yet other times, I know he was there, I can feel it.

      Jean, thanks for answering my question. I looked at your husband's photo again and I see one little yellow light ball surrounded by a gold light above his head. Mine is a light cream yellow light obliterating my face and above my head. Are those little balls of light running from his head down his body at the chakras? The man who made mine was using a Kirlian Polaroid camera, and none of the chakras show in my photo, just the aura surrounding the physical body. The physical doesn't show at all. My friend's facial features could be recognized through her Kirlian photo, but I had no features. And yes, I do have psychic abilities, but they have a mind of their own. I can't just tap in at will like some people seem to be able to do.

      Hi MizBejabbers,

      Always nice to hear from you! The rose color means you are young at heart. Purple in auras is very spiritual, and you must have psychic abilities. The Blues are calming and mean that you comfort other people, and are patient with them, to a point where it's beneficial to their health. I also had a lot of blue in my aura photo, although mine and my husbands were taken at different times from different photographers. That creamy yellow light is a sign of intelligence. Is it like the one at the top of my husband's head here? It's not common to see that in these photos, I am told. Take care.

      Jean, I'm glad this cropped up again in my feed because it really interests me. I reread it and then got out the Kirlian photo I had made nearly 15 years ago. The photographer only took from the shoulders up, but my features didn't show at all. My head and shoulders were blanked out by a lt. creamy yellow light. From about my chin down the creamy light was edged in tones of rose, while above that was edged in shades blues and rose, which blended into uneven shades of purple. My mentor had told me that it was "powerful" but that's all she said. Do you know what she meant?

      The friend who was with me had tones of rose and blue, and her features showed through the aura. I was told by a Kirlian photographer at a conference I attended that there were different types of Kirlian cameras to photograph auras, and that theirs were the "best". He also charged four times what the first photographer charged and claimed that my original wasn't a good representation of Kirlian aura photos. In other words, he put down my photographer, which didn't sit well with me so I didn't pay his price.

      Hi Deborah,

      Wow, gold is serious! Is he very psychic, or religious? He is certainly celestially protected (great for a Mom to know). And if you can see auras yourself, you are quite psychic as well. I can't see them. I can "feel" them, I am clairsentient, but clairvoyants are those who can see them. Usually we see Jesus or the Saints with gold auras. I can't really add more to what I said in the hub. He may become a pastor or minister. Let me know how it works out. I can't recall if I had Edgar Cayce's book on auras there, if not, I'll put it up. Thanks for writing, I love hearing stuff like this! Take care, Jean

      I'm glad you enjoyed the hub. Some people can see auras, I can a little bit, but mostly feel them, as I'm clairsentient, and it's about feeling for me. There are a few good hubs on here that explain different methods for seeing auras. It takes some time and practice. Take care.

      Thanks for your kind comments, MizBejabbers. It's not easy to see auras, I can feel them more than see them, and understand what emotions the person I am reading is experiencing.

      Usually you are told if you stare at someone who is in front of a white wall or door for one or two minutes, and then turn your eyes to the side, you will pick up a color. You see it in your peripheral vision. After meditating most of the people in my metaphysical classes say they see auras, but I only see very light ones myself

      Yes, when I go back to old metaphysical books in my library, I always am reminded of areas of study I left to go on to something else. Sometimes I go back to it! Take care.

      The study of auras is very useful, especially to healers or to those wanting to understand the metaphysical. You have done an excellent job of describing and explaining them. One of the books in my metaphysical library is about using color-charged water for healing. I'd forgotten about it.

      Most people whom I know are not able to see auras. At one time when I was in metaphysics school, I could, but it was hard for me to distinguish the colors. My friend and schoolmate could see the auras without trying. We discussed this recently and now we both have to make an effort to see them. As the old saying goes, "use it or lose it."

      Very good, Jean. Your metaphysical hubs are always interesting and informative.
