Auras and Chakras

Author: Muadhnait

An aura is the three-dimensional energy field that surrounds the bodies of all beings and things. The healthier you are, the further the aura will extend out from your body.

How to read the Aura

Find a place where there isn't any harsh light. Focus on one part of your body, preferably your hand. Relax, concentrate on your hand lines. If you’re relaxed enough, you’ll see a certain color. With time you might be able to see several colors.

Auras can be seen physically, or sensed psychically. One way to see someone's aura is to have the subject stand in front of a white background.
If you look at the person for a while you’ll see some sort of wavy lines of energies, and also maybe a couple of aura colors.
There is also another exercise. As far as I know, the author of the following exercise is unknown, but I’d appreciate it if you emailed me their name so I could give them credit.

“Stand in front of a mirror at a distance of about half a meter, with a wall of neutral color some distance behind you. Alternatively, get a friend to stand about 1 meter away from you and 2 meters from a neutral wall.

Relax, and breathe deeply and evenly. Focus your eyes on the wall behind the head.

Gently sway your body from side to side (or tell your friend to if looking at someone else).
As you stare past the outline of the head, you should be able to see an envelope of light - it's an aura!
The room and subject should be illuminated by subdued lighting, but not in darkness or direct sunlight. Do not worry if you cannot see color at this stage, in time you may.”

Common Aura Colors

    The following is a list of aura colors that are associated with the person’s conscious and subconscious state. The color spectrum varies with a person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states.
  • Red: The color of strength, passion, impulsiveness and will.
  • Orange: Color of affection, kindness, and creativity. The muddier shades denote vanity, while golden orange represents self-control. Someone with orange in his/her aura may suffer from kidney troubles.
  • Yellow: Mental activity, optimism, perfectionism, responsibility, sometimes shyness.
  • Green: The color of sympathy and reliability. The person may be an effective healer. Dark shades of green however indicate one who is jealous or hesitant.
  • Blue: The color of calm, and spiritual and material attainment. May sometimes represent a tendency to moodiness and depression.
  • Indigo/Violet: The colors of the seeker who has inborn psychic and intuitive abilities. They represent an astounding ability in the handling of practical matters. Dark shades may show that the person is often misjudged and misunderstood. May indicate heart or stomach trouble.
  • Black: The color of self-protection. The person is good at ‘wearing masks’.
  • Pink: A compassionate person who is fond of the arts. Darker shades of pink may point to immaturity and irresponsibility.
  • White: Purity and honesty. A color associated with spiritually evolved persons.
  • Silver: The person might be pregnant or is going to be soon! However, this is not always so. Seeing this may indicate a person who is allowing great creativity in their life.

Sometimes you experience the interplay of an outside energy field upon your aura.

    You can tell this is happening to you in the following circumstances:

  • When you are around some people and you feel ‘drained’ and weak.
  • When you feel there is someone staring at you intensely.
  • When you have an instant liking or disliking for someone you’ve just met.
  • When you sense someone’s presence before you saw this person.

Chakras are points of great energy for one's aura. The word itself is Sanskrit for wheel or disk.

According to East Indian philosophy, man possesses seven major Chakras or psychic centers on his body. Through our Chakras, we transmit and receive physical, emotional, and spiritual energy.

These are the seven main chakras, the colors assciated with each one of them, and their energy focus:

1st Chakra

Base, Root

Located at the base of the spine
Red, black Stability, grounding, physical energy, will, security.
2nd Chakra


Located below the navel
Orange, blue-green Creativity, healing, sexuality and reproduction, desire, emotion,
3rd Chakra

Solar Plexus

Located at solar plexas, below breastbone
Yellow Intellect, ambition, personal power.
4th Chakra


Located in the center of the chest
Pink, green Love, compassion, universal consciousness, emotional balance.
5th Chakra


Located at the neck above collar bone
Blue Communication center, expression, divine guidance.
6th chakra

Third eye

Location centered above eyebrows, at medulla
Indigo Spiritual awareness, psychic power, intuition, light.
7th Chakra


Located at the top of the head
Violet, golden-white Enlightenment, cosmic consciousness, energy, perfection.

Single Chakra Therapy

When you want to work on a specific Chakra, place
a gemstone or strand of gemstones on it and keep them there
from 3-20 minutes. You may use clear optical quality quartz for all of your chakras; however, here are the stones that others recommend on each chakra.

  1. Root/Base Chakra: Black Onyx/Obsidian
  2. Sex/Navel Chakra: Carnelian
  3. Stomach/Solar Plexus Chakra: Citrine
  4. Heart Chakra: Rose Quartz/Ruby
  5. Throat Chakra: Indigo (translucent Sodalight)/Purple Rainbow Fluorite
  6. Brow/Third Eye Chakra: Amethyst/Aquamarine/Lapis Lazuli/Clear Quartz
  7. Crown Chakra: Amethyst/Clear Quartz

If a stone ever feels uncomfortable, remove it immediately and replace it with a stone that fits you better.
