The Aura Has Seven LayersAlso known as the subtle bodies, there are seven layers of your aura that correspond with the seven chakras in your body.
The Color Of Your Aura Is Reflective Of Your Physical, Emotional, And Spiritual Health
At any given time, your aura emits a mixture of colors and light (it will never be just one color), and each of these shades says a lot about how you're currently feeling. For example, if there's a brilliant yellow, it probably means you're feeling spiritually alive and energetic, and clouded red means you're feeling negative and dealing with some deeply buried anger.
Auras Can Be Captured In PhotographsNow that your curiosity is sufficiently peaked, you're probably wondering what your aura looks like so you can have a sense of your emotional and spiritual state. There are certain cameras out there that photograph your aura by pressing your hands onto metal plates that sit on top of electric boxes. You can then have someone interpret the picture and help you make sense of the message your aura is trying to send. Apparently, you can learn about your work ethic, spending habits, and the state of your love life.
Auras Probably Play A Role In Your Social Life More Than You Think
We regularly read each other's auras without even knowing it. "Most of us are more sensitive than we give ourselves credit for." We can sense someone's energetic body and we're automatically attracted to or turned off by it. In fact, all those times you met a person you just didn't like — maybe there was something strange you "couldn't put your finger on" — it was likely their aura you weren't vibing with. Similarly, other people react to your aura as well, depending on how it matches with theirs. It's certainly not the only thing that determines friendships and romances, but it's a factor nonetheless.
You're Not Stuck With The Same Aura For The Rest Of Your Life
If you're not in a particularly great place in your life, your aura will reflect it. But you know you won't be stuck in this rut forever, which means your aura won't be dull for long. The good news is you don't have to do anything to change your aura after things get better. Just the natural shift in your emotional and physical health will result in an aural transformation, because your aura is always alive, and always connected to your body and the universe. There's no off switch, so it keeps up with you at every turn.
You Can Cleanse Your Aura If You're Not Feeling So Great
There are some habits you can partake in as well that might help you maintain your aural health. Sessions with an energetic healer might be the right way to go, but if that doesn't tickle your fancy, you can always go old school and get yourself some dried white sage. Smudging with sage is an ancient practice used in many indigenous cultures to clear out negative energy. Light your sage and wave the smoke around your home, as well as your whole body. You may not feel an instant change, but it will evoke a happy shift in your aura nevertheless.
