Aura colors

When you have mastered the art of gazing, you will start to notice a faint glow around the bodies of other people, usually strongest around the head. It may look like the background is a little bit lighter, or darker. It may look like some kind of refraction effect, like the kind of oily sheen you see over a hot roadway in the summer. Maybe like light warps a bit like in a lens.

At first you will probably only see a transparent effect, but with training you can come to discern certain colors. At first it might just be as a general sense of a color, but with time and practice the colors will appear sharper and more full and with time you may also be able to see a larger energy field.

This is the body's bio-electric field, an electromagnetic field that manifests as visible light to those who have trained their visual sensitivity. And as the visual light spectrum, it has colors – colors are but the notes of the octave of light frequency, which is why reddish-purple hues reoccur at both ends of the spectrum, they just continue on the next, invisible octave. The colors depend on what is going on in the body and mind of the person, so being able to see and read them is a valuable tool in gauging the mindset and emotional state of someone.


Chakras are 7 energy centers in the body, from the butt to the scalp. Energy flows through these and each one has a different characteristic.

At the bottom between the anus and genitals is the root chakra. It is associated with the color red and often very physical, sexual energies, sometimes anger.

Above that, just below the navel is the sacral chakra. It is associated with the color orange and things that has to do with the gut, like apetite and emotions.

Then you have the solar plexus chakra, associated with yellow and awareness.

The heart chakra is associated with the color green and all heart related emotions such as love, caring and nurturing.

In the throat you find the throat chakra, associated with the color turquoise/blue and coolness, peace, tranquility.

Then comes the "Third Eye" chakra, located just above the eyebrows, associated with the color blue/purple, the pineal gland and spiritual awakening. The pineal gland has to do with the production of serotonin and melatonin as well as trimethyltriptamine, a key ingredient in our dreams and spiritual visions/experiences. It also has photo receptors and works as a rudimentary eye, hence "the third eye". Might have a part in the perception of auras as well, so the more you focus on this the better you may become at seeing auras.

The final chakra is the crown chakra, located at the top of the head. associated with the color purple/violet and the highest state of pure consciousness, enlightenment, bliss, oneness with the universe..

As you notice, from the root to the crown, from red to violet, low frequency to high frequency, the chakras represent a transition from material and fleshly concepts, to more and more spiritual – From the animalistic sex drive and apetites to awakening, enlightenment and connection to the universe. That is why if you meditate on the chakras, it is advisable to start from the root and slowly proceed up as you manage to activate each one. Otherwise things may get out of whack. That's also an explanation as to why some people don't seem to appreciate spiritual things but are only locked in a low frequency mindset of consumption and sexual desires.
