to Read Auras
By: Trish Kershaw
Understanding Your Aura
aura is an energy field, which emanates from the
surface of a person or object. Everyone and everything
has an aura. The field of energy around our physical
body forms our aura and is visualized as an outline
of cascading colour. Every thought, feeling and
experience we have affects the vibration of this
Recognition of the fact
that humans are surrounded by an aura dates back
through the millennia - Christian saints are traditionally
shown with a halo around the head, the ancient Egyptians
did the same for their gods or important human beings,
as did the Hindus, Buddhists, Greeks and Romans.
The aura is generally recognised as having seven
layers. The outer auric layers are concerned with
the soul and spirit while the inner layers relate
to the mind, emotions and health.
aura is oval in shape and is made up of fibrous
light surrounding the whole of the physical body.
To some, it is like a heat haze radiating all around
the person, shimmering with light and energy. It
has every colour imaginable including those that
are beyond the visible spectrum and connects us
to the vibrations around us.
colour vibration emitted from the physical and etheric
bodies extends 3-4 inches around the body. See how
that colour can describe your personality and what
your future may hold in store.
Do The Colours Mean?
colours surrounding your body might change several
times a day. The energy reflects how you feel and
will change with your mood. For most people, several
different colours appear within their energy field
at one time. Aura photography is now in great demand.
Everyone has energy around him or her, and each
aura is unique. Your colours can change according
to major life changes. A divorce, new job or baby
can all alter your colours and show you where there
is particular stress involved.
Do I Read An Aura?
It’s quite simple.
When you have found the person whose aura you want to
read, stand facing them, close your eyes and take several
deep breaths. When you feel ready to open your eyes again,
stare at the person, making sure you feel as though you
are almost seeing straight through them. You will then
see the figure in front of you start to blur.
of the first colours you’ll probably see will
be white. Soon after other colours may start to
appear in splodges. If you can’t see them,
imagine a colour instead. The first colour to pop
into your mind is more often than not the colour
of the subject’s aura. Rub your hands together,
and then place them above the person’s head.
Slowly move your hands towards and away from the
head, and once you have linked with the aura you
may feel a sensation of tingling, heat or even coldness.
With practice, you will learn how to relate the
sensations and colours you pick up to specific things
going on in someone’s life. Below is a basic
list of what certain colours indicate.
Colours – What They Mean
– denotes purity, joy, innocence and healing
powers. Purple – denotes a strong spiritual
character, wisdom, power, pride and a sense of justice.
Blue – shows someone is tranquil, creative
and sensitive, with a gift for healing.
Green – hints at material wealth, but can
also be a sign of emotional stress.
Yellow – shows a happy spirit, with sharp
intellect and a zest for life.
Orange – indicates an ambitious, sociable
Red – lusty and passionate, also implies courage,
strength, vitality and severity.
Grey – can reveal that someone feels trapped.

kind and a good friend. Highly fertile.
Black – can show past trauma and illness.
Gold – highly spiritual, working with the
Brown – a down-to-earth, grounded personality.
children up to the age of 5 can see auras without
Scientists believe that
it’s the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds
our bodies. Visible to those who are tuned in and through
aura cameras, it looks like layers of coloured clouds,
one on top of the other. The appearance of your aura suggests
your personality and mood. Experts can also pinpoint any
stress or illness you may be experiencing.
is a technique used to practice reading your own
aura. This can be more helpful and valuable to you
because you are not watching someone else who could
become restless and impatient. But at the same time,
many people have difficulty in being objective with
themselves. This exercise should be used to practice
seeing the aura and not necessarily interpreting
in front of a mirror. Place a small lamp, with a
white shade, on a table to the left or right of
the mirror. Be sure the light does not reflect in
the mirror or is uncomfortable to your eyes. Begin
by looking at your shoulder and neck area in the
mirror. Let your eyes go out of focus, as if you
were looking beyond your body's reflection. After
some practice you should begin to see a white glow
or outline, about 1 to 2 inches wide, around the
shoulder and neck. This is your inner-aura.
that you know what to look for, sit in front of
your mirror as in Exercise 1. Practice seeing the
white inner aura once again, only this time, try
to move your focus to the outside line of the white
you practice, you will begin to see the white outline
grow wider. However, there should be a slight variation
in the colour, off white as opposed to snow white. As
you watch the aura form, you will be able to see slight
colour emerge around the edges of the white aura. They
maybe faint and cloudy at first, but keep watching and
practicing. This is the beginning layer of the middle
perceive shapes in and around the aura, you need
to be able to see the entire aura. You should be
able to look at all the sections and layers as if
they were one big ball of energy. Return to your
mirror and lamp as in Exercise 1. Find the white
outline, move your vision out and practice seeing
the colour variations once more.
time you practice, try moving your focus up to your
head. If you lose the perception, begin again. You
should be training your insight to focus on the
aura regardless of where your physical eyes are
should be able to move your vision around the entire
body. Not just the outlined area, but in front of
your body as well. In other words, you should be
able to look at the stomach and perceive the energy
that exists in front of the body, not just the illumination
on the sides.
looking from one shoulder to the other, following
the line of energy around the outside of the body.
At this point don't try to go across the neck. In
this case a straight line may not be the best way
to your destination. Try to keep your perception
as you move your vision past the ears, around the
top of the head and back down the other side to
the opposite shoulder. When you can move your eyes
without losing the perception, try moving your sight
to the centre of your body. Look at your throat
and upper chest area. If you have a full-length
mirror, move your eyesight down to your stomach
and legs. You should notice a variety of colours
depending on the location you're looking at. You
may see a gentle shade of blue around your chest,
but as you move your sight down to your stomach,
the blue begins to mould in with a light green.
The colour within that same layer may change again
as you move your sight to another part of your body.
As you practice, the layers will grow wider and
it will take less time for you find the aura.
is maybe the most difficult exercise to conduct
upon yourself, so an alternative would be to practice
with a friend or while you are in a meeting or at
a lecture. Focus on the speaker or the other people
around the conference table. If these options are
not possible or you don't feel comfortable practicing
on someone else, go back to your mirror and lamp
as in the previous exercises.
to see the white outline, and then move your eyes
farther out to perceive the entire aura. Focus on
the colour variations, the location and shape of
the energy. If you're reading someone else, continue
to watch their aura as you take notice of their
emotional state. If they're laughing or happy, do
you see any sudden bursts of pink around the chest
area? If they're stressed or upset, do you see any
spikes of brown or red?
energy is not always present, it may be difficult
to practice this exercise. But you should try. Perceiving
these energies will help you know when you can or
shouldn't deal with other people. So don't give
up, just practice.
Everything living has
an aura, even plants. If you find it difficult to
read your own aura, practice on a tree or plant
that won't be moving in a breeze. Sit in front of
a potted plant. Choose a spot near the top or at
the base of the plant. Let your eyes go out of focus.
Look beyond the plant, as if you're focusing on
an object hanging from a branch or leaf. You should
begin to see the white inner-aura of the plant.
Keep your focus on the white aura and try moving
your perception around to the opposite side of the
plant. You might try placing a small lamp behind
the plant, to illuminate its leaves and branches.
Set the light behind the pot so you cannot see the
bulb; make sure the lamp does not hurt your eyes
in anyway. This illumination can help trick your
physical sight to focus on the slight reflection
of the light. As you stare at the reflection, you
may notice it grow wider and soon you'll realize
that what you're looking at is a colourful aura.
remember this is a plant, it may not have the colour
variations that a human or animal might have. But
you should be able to see if the plant is healthy
or if it lacks nourishment or if it's beginning
to develop other physical problems.
technique can be difficult, especially if your pet
does not want to sit still. But it's a great exercise
to practice your technique on an independent subject.
Choose a place around
the head of the animal, and let your eyes go out
of focus. Use the same techniques you might use
on yourself in the Mirror exercise. Try moving your
perception around the animal’s body and notice
the change in colour variations.
great thing about practicing aura reading is that
you can do it anywhere. These are just a few suggestions
you may want to try. Simply use the same techniques
as previously discussed and open your inner eyes
to all the energy around you.
you're attending a meeting or presentation at work,
try focusing on the speaker. You may notice sudden
changes of colour in their inner aura. They may
feel more comfortable speaking about a particular
area of their presentation, but as they move into
slightly unfamiliar territory, their aura will reflect
the drop in confidence. Everyone likes to stand
or sit at the beach and watch the waves roll into
shore. Take a moment to watch the waves, focus on
the outline of the top of the water, or the white
foam of the wave as it curves over and crashed upon
itself. The first time I tried this exercise, I
was amazed at the electricity my inner vision perceived.
It was truly a beautiful sight. Hold an object (a
car key or a crystal) for 10 to 15 minutes. Visualize
your energy imprinting itself onto the object. Sit
the object on a table and focus on the energy residue
you've left behind. The colour you see should match
the emotion you imprinted on the object.
