An aura is an egg-shaped, colorful band of sound, light, and vibration.  They surround all living things. Some also reference auras as a psychic energy field or electromagnetic field.  Auras radiate from the body roughly 2 to 3 feet on all sides and extend above the head and below the feet into the ground. They play a crucial role in life, acting like an inner fire that helps steadily move people towards their goals, passions, and desires.

Furthermore, auras have particular colors, all of which have various meanings.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue-indigo and violet are the main colors associated with the aura. However, those colors vary, ranging from lighter to darker hues.  And some shades are more intense or less intense. Some have said there are even metallic colors, such as silver and gold, within the aura color spectrum. The aura can contain black, white, and gray, as well.

While most are unable to see their own auras, some are able to see that of others. In fact, you may have done it yourself without knowing it. Some intuitively pick up on others’ auras. This helps form part of what gives a particular vibe or feeling about the people and situations we encounter.

For example, if you’ve ever felt that a person just seemed off to you for no apparent reason, it might have been due to the fact that you picked up on their aura and bad energy.  On the other hand, there might be some people that draw you in like a magnet.  These people emanate pleasant energy and have positive auras.
