Understanding Aura Colors

Aura Colors

Metaphysical believers and practitioners believe aura colors are created or caused by vibrations. Every molecule in the universe translates itself into some type of pattern which emanates from the body as vibrations. The human eye can be taught to see these vibrations as colors. Just as we are unable to hear physical sound waves, aura colors are only visible to a few, but the human eye is slowly gaining this ability according to some.

The aura color wheel consists of the seven colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. If you are trying to see someone’s aura color for the first time, stand them in front of a white wall or background without excess light and concentrate on a single spot on the person’s face for at least 60 seconds. The center of the forehead is a good concentration point. Without taking your eyes off the forehead, scan the edges of the head, arms, and shoulders. If the white areas around this is brighter, then you are witnessing an aura. This may not happen the first time you try, but be patient and keep trying as you practice your concentration.

Some people may also be able to feel auras. To do this, stand face to face with the person whose aura you are feeling and place the palms of your hands about 6-8 inches from the top of the person’s head. Keep your distance while moving your hands down the body and all around. As you work, you will eventually recognize fluffy effects as you work your way down. It will feel like touching a feather light pillow, but it is electromagnetic energy. If you feel the energy, but cannot see it, then you may wonder how to find its color. The short test below will help.
