Auras in esoteric terms are the subtle energies that surround all living things, humans, animals, and plants. Auras are made up of the electromagnetic, energetic fields of a physical body. However, they should not be confused with subtle bodies which are “fixed” layers of energy that form part of, and extend beyond a physical body into the higher dimensional planes of consciousness.
Auras are constantly changing as they are reflections of an individual’s energy at a given time. They reflect the interactions within one’s being between one’s emotional, mental, and spiritual states of awareness. The auric field consists of bio-magnetic energy, thermal energy, and the mitogenic energy emitted by the cells of a physical body. An aura is a “picture” of the electromagnetic energies that are present within one’s “persona” at any given time.
Guy Coggins developed a system to produce a polaroid photograph or an “aura image” using hand sensors linked to a camera.
The principle is that the electro potential along the meridians in the palms of the hand is converted into measurable electrical frequencies. Colors have measurable electrical frequencies, therefore the “bio-feedback” from the hand sensors is “converted” into the matching color frequency and displayed as the colored patterns seen on an aura photograph or image.
An aura photograph can be divided into four main areas for interpreting the color meanings.
The right side of a person (left side of aura photograph) shows the energy one is presenting to the outside world and thus how others may perceive you. The right side is the masculine energies, expressive, active, or the “action” side. The colors on the right side are how we are projecting our energies. It can also represent the recent past, a “hole” on this side could indicate a “loss” or a need to “let go” or a major upheaval/transformation of some kind.
The left-hand side of a person (right side of aura photograph) indicates the energies one is receiving. The left side is the feminine, receptive side where one processes “feelings”. Colors on the left-hand side also indicate which one is, or wishes to create. An abundance of color and strong colors indicates what one is focussing on and a lack of color indicates one is dwelling on past emotions or memories.
The center of an aura photograph indicates the energies one is experiencing in the present “now”. The area of the torso and around one’s heart indicates what one is resonating with at the time the aura photograph was taken.
Above the head in an “arc formation”, shows what energies are available to be “tapped into” in the future, they can indicate what one wishes to aspire to, such as spiritual growth.
Further insights can be gained from the quality of the colors beings displayed and the orientation and size of the aura image. Auras that appear to be expanded indicate that one is expressive in one’s thoughts and actions and communicate and connects with others in an open, free manner. It indicates a positive attitude and a sense of an outward focussing adventurous nature. Auras that appear to be close to the person’s physical body, indicate they are likely to be introverted or focus thoughts inwardly, or that they are unable to fully express thoughts or take action. It also indicates a sensitive nature and the need to have “space”, peace, and quiet to relax or meditate.
An area where no color is apparent indicates a “hole” or void in the aura image which is interpreted as an extreme or abrupt change in one’s energies, either mentally, emotionally, or lastly physically. The void must be seen as an indicator that certain actions are required and be viewed from a “higher perspective” as a positive opportunity to resolve certain issues so that one can move forward.
“Muddy” colors indicate negative energies or areas where energy is congested and needs clearing. “Bright” vibrant colors indicate positive energies.
An aura image should be read as a “whole” bringing together the various colors and applying the “principles” to the energies that are being displayed.
Interpreting Aura Colors
The colors produced in an aura image should be read and interpreted using the whole of the image, taking into account all the colors and their relative positions.
Here are two of my aura images, the one on the left was taken in 2005 when I was embarking on the part of my journey to gain in-depth knowledge of crystals and crystal healing, and starting up an online crystal business.
The one on the right was taken in late 2013 when I was about to embark on a personal healing journey to fully align and resonate with my soul. It also was at a time of a major change of direction for the crystal business.
Looking at the image on the left, the “arc” above my head is colored green and yellow. Indicating that the energies are of changes to come and a path of personal growth, healing, and spirituality.
The colors on my left are blue and are the energies available for me to use, that being communication, the need to speak out, and to be “visible”. The color on my torso is red which indicates a controlling influence to have courage and a need to be successful. The colors on my right are mainly orange with some red which indicate expression and confidence in my creative abilities, to take action and to send these energies out into the world. Finally the “hole or void” on my left side indicates the need to nurture myself with the energies that are available in the present and also to fully embrace and utilize the energies that are awaiting the future.
In the image on the right, the “arc” is dark blue indicating communication that is to be awakened, light blue indicating intuition to be fully awakened, and violet which are higher energies to be given at an appropriate time in the future. The color on my left side is pale violet which is the energy being received, that of spiritual awareness. The color on my torso is pale to mid-purple which is the energy I was resonating with at the time the image was taken, that being spiritual growth. The colors on my right side are yellow, red/orange, which show enthusiasm and confidence in creative abilities and that these are the energies that are being sent out into the world, along with the purple/magenta of spiritual purpose.
