Aura Part 1 – What is It and Why is It So Important?
By Sacha Tarkovsky
Aura is important and if you understand what it is and gain your own then you can derive more from life and gain a greater understanding of other people. We often say people have aura about them but what does this actually mean? This is an article in two parts. Part 1 will acquaint you with the aura; what it is and what it means. In Part 2 we show you to actually see your and other’s auras, and how such knowledge can be used to understand your own basic nature and physio-spiritual condition. The word aura, itself is derived from the Greek (avra) meaning dawn, breath, or golden glow. An aura can be described as a particular atmosphere or quality that seems to surround a person or thing. An aura can also be described as the halo, which is used in Christian art and writings meaning a visible aura. In Eastern religions, the aura and halo are the same.
In today’s popular belief, the aura refers to an energy field (or some field) emanating from the surface of a person or object. This emanation can be visualized as an outline of cascading color and may be held to represent soul vibrations, chakric (the chakra being spiritual energy center’s within and without one’s body) emergence, or even a reflection of surrounding energy fields. Auras may be viewed by the naked eye, though it usually requires training.This training is a sort of focused concentration, and can enable or improve one’s ability to see auras. Auras often have layers, and these layers are separate and distinct yet connected to all the remaining layers.
The imagines of Christian saints as well as Eastern holy images, all have golden auras, meant to reflect divine light. In metaphysics today, the aura is identified with electromagnetic fields. Whatever the nature of the auric field (be it electromagnetic or otherwise). the existence of electromagnetic fields around every object in the known world is a scientifically proven fact. The question is not whether auras exist or not, but if humans can see these electromagnetic fields as colors with the naked eye.
Auric Energy Field
However, these energy fields have been documented by a rare form of photography called Kirlian photography. In such photos, clearly observable fields of light emanate from any living creature and even inanimate objects. Does an aura signify anything? Does it have a meaning? There is a popular belief that auras change colors and shapes with the changing moods and situations of each person. While some hold this to be true, some claim that there is no way to change one’s aura, and that it is considered to be a universal spiritual signature. It appears that only through conscious control, and perfected practice can the aura be used to identify a malfunction of the body, heal oneself and according to certain people, and change how one is perceived by the surrounding.
The emanating colors of the aura are often tied to special or hidden meanings. Some claim that the seven colors comprising the aura that emanate from the surface of the object are mystically tied to many other things, like the planets, days of the week, and the musical notes. The aura is also sometimes told to have more than seven colors, as explained below. Lets see what they mean;
- Purple: indicates spiritual thoughts. Purple is seldom a single color in the Aura. A guru or saintly teacher might have this color aura.
- Blue: Balanced existence, sustaining life, eased nerve system, transmitting forces and energy. People with blue strong point in their Aura are relaxed, balanced are born survivors. Electric blue can overpower any other color in the Aura, when a person is receiving and/or transmitting information in a telepathic communication, they glow electric blue.
- Turquoise: indicates dynamic quality of being, highly energized personality, capable of projection, influencing other people. People with turquoise strong point in their Aura can do many things simultaneously and are good organizers. Turquoise thought is a thought about organizing and influencing others.
- Green: restful, modifying energy, natural healing ability. All natural healers should have it. People with a green strong point in their Auras are natural healers. The stronger the green Aura, he better the healer. Green thought indicates a restful state and healing.
- Yellow: joy, freedom, non-attachment, freeing or releasing vital forces. People who glow yellow are full of inner joy, very generous and not attached to anything. Yellow halo around the head: high spiritual development. A signature of a spiritual teacher. Buddha and Christ had yellow halos extending to their arms. Yellow thought indicates a moment of joy and contentment.
- Orange: uplifting and absorbing. Inspiring. A sign of power. Ability and/or desire to control people. When orange becomes a strong point, it usually contributes to a yellow halo, which then becomes gold, indicating not only a spiritual teacher. Orange thought is a thought about exercising power or a desire to control people.
- Red: materialistic thoughts, thoughts about the physical body. Predominantly red Aura indicates materialistically oriented person.
- Pink (=purple+red): love (in a spiritual sense). To obtain a clean pink, you need to mix the purple (the highest frequency we perceive) with red (the lowest frequency). Pink Aura indicates that the person achieved a perfect balance between spiritual awareness and the material existence. The pink color in the Aura is quite rare and appears only as a temporary thought, never as a strong point in the Aura.
