December 31, 2006: Colors in the Aura

         A letter from a reader brought up the subject of auras and the interpretation of the colors in an aura. The specific problem is as follows: her brother, who can see auras, told her that even though the color of her aura changes and shows different intensities, there was one dark, clear, almost emerald green spot over her left shoulder which seemed to be constant. She asked if anyone could tell her what this could mean.

        It’s been a long time since I’ve paid much attention to auras. I’ve heard of people who saw auras consistently since birth, so that they were amazed when they finally discovered that others were not seeing people wrapped with color as a normal perception. During my early psychic years I spent some time focusing on auras and trying to understand how to interpret colors and patterns.

        I found multiple books on the subject, only to discover they did not always agree with each other about what this or that color meant. Gradually I gave up relying on book explanations and tried to figure things out on my own. My own patterns of interpretations developed.

         I noticed that people who were advanced on a spiritual path usually had auras of pale yellows or blues (on rare occasions, white or cream white). Note: not every ‘spiritual teacher’ shows an advanced aura. Some teachers are good at reading books, distilling passages and ideas, and then putting on a good show for the public (who generally pay for the advice). Genuine teachers show not only a difference in clarity and color of their outer aura, but at deeper levels (such as the causal). Click on Saturday, April 9, 2005 for more details about teachers.

         People whose focus and energy center in the physical world have deeper, more intense colors. I gravitate toward people who show up most frequently with blues, greens and yellows in their auras; I am less comfortable with large patterns of reds and oranges. People with bright clear reds and oranges are definitely more outgoing and physically active, with vibrant personalities that live in the moment. The blues and green I like tend to be more intellectually oriented, so that this color distinction on my part is a reflection of my personality, not a judgement of cool colors being better than warm.

         Colors of an aura shift somewhat with a person’s mood and energy levels. Therefore, focusing on any one pattern, seems non-productive. The most telling and important factor in my interpretation is how clear the colors are. Muddy, dirty colors are not desirable. To see areas or streaks of muddy red, brown or black is never a good sign and I’ve learned to keep up my guard. Sickly greens and yellows are not the sign of health; these hues could signify mental or physical problems.

         Occasionally, I still find myself staring at an aura that’s popped into view, but I avoid making a conscious effort to view this part of people’s inner lives. I’ve had too many times of accidentally seeing someone with a dark or murky aura, which feels rather like seeing someone’s dirty underwear. For my part, I’ve decided that purposely focusing on strangers’ or friends’ auras is an invasion of privacy.

           Now, as for the reader’s problem: I’m going to turn it over to any reader who is more experienced in auras to interpret the ‘one dark, clear, almost emerald green spot over her left shoulder.’ Any ideas are welcome. Any comments about aura reading are also welcome.

I am discovering blogging tonight on the advice of a friend. I found your blog which covers my central area of interest in life. I've spent the last 20 something years exploring subtle realities in myself and my therapy clients. I have felt like commenting several times on your writing. I appreciate your detailed and 'scientific' approach. So many people who are in the higher spheres do not have there feet on the ground and I believe it is important to distinguish between different types of experience, different levels of experience and their meanings.
Like you, I feel that if we can see auras, that we should not do so unless invited. It is important to respect peoples' personal space. The only time I will tune in uninvited is if I'm trying to determine whether I'm with safe people. As for the green light above this woman's shoulder - like you, I do not think there are any hard and fast rules about auras and prefer to rely on my own intuition when interpreting auras. It is as if they speak to me, giving me images, scenes, voices of things that need to be resolved and addressed in a person. The little theory I have been exposed to regarding the different subtle bodies fits with my experience. The denser, astral body corresponds to the subconscious mind and psychological makeup of the individual. The causal body seems to reflect past lives, or the superconscious and the etheric reflects each soul's ultimate life path and mission, throughout all lifetimes. I'll try to find more time to read your material and send a few comments.

My guess is that since greenis healing/health, that area of her shoulder has expereinced/is experiencing some healing. Just a possibility.
