DEFINITION OF AURAS
are the physical manifestation of the electric field surrounding each and
every living thing. That is what causes shocks when touching something
metal. It's considered a graphic representation of the human soul (not the
soul, but an indicator of it). It is like an external directional signal
indicating the spiritual essence of the person wearing it. Some individuals
have the ability to see these Auras, which have different colors, depending
on the person.
White: A lot of energy being sensed. Spiritual, higher-self
connected, also connected to the spiritual world. Can create aloofness and
separate energies because it keeps out other colors. Can also be used as
Red: Physical Energy; physically-based personality or sensuality. The
emotions can range from the fire of raging passion and anger to the soft
warmth of love and affection. Harsh Reds (such as crimson) tend
to indicate emotionally charged physical animation, usually anger and
perhaps some hatred. Warm Reds, sensuous, or physically charged and healthy.
Can also "feel" the energy projected from a Red Aura.
Orange: Friendly, open, up-beat, and approachable. Orange is the
color of vitality, vigor, good health, and sexual excitement. A burnt Orange
can show tiredness (usually around the fringes of a dull Orange).
Yellow: Intellectual, thinking, working faculties. Yellow shows
creativity and inspiration at work or a readiness to be creative.
Green: Healthy, balanced, calming, charming, sensual and sensibility.
Green is the color of growth and change, indicates the cycles of Mother
Nature. An emerald Green shows completeness of an endeavor.

sometimes an integrated personality exuding charisma. Blue provides
sensitivity and yet it can make the best of barriers against warmer
energies. Can represent peace and spirituality.
Violet: Spiritual, sensitive, focused but not necessarily in
reality. High vibration, tuning into Master Teacher's energy. Can be used to
raise the consciousness/vibrations of the energy around it. Violet is
associated to the feminine principle.
Purple: It is a combination of Blue and Red, a combination of wisdom
and understanding. Shows sensitivity to a particular situation. Can move
"into" other colors and bring out information connected with it. Shows true
Pink: Physical energy being diffused, hence it is a calming color.

Brown: Need to work with this color to get a feel for it. Could be
warm rich and well integrated person, or one who is unhealthy, or just to
much going on (different types of stress).
Black: Nothing getting out, shielding or hiding. Hides feelings from
others and creates privacy. Draws light to it, total absorption. Feeling
tired? Feel the world sucking around one? Or is it like a flat black, a
scintillation of one's own energy being diffused out? In other words, is
there a metallic tint? If feeling drained, it could be a "psychic vampire".
Otherwise, it may be someone who is very skilled who doesn't want to be
scanned or bothered. Usually the colors when viewed with these individual's
tend to be more metallic. Many people misinterpret these also.
Silver: Reveals an awakening of consciousness to the Universal Laws.

energy can give protection from negativity. Tuning into a Master Teacher's
