Everyone and everything has a aura. Adding to this, absolutely everything in the universe has a type of aura field surrounding it. Even inanimate objects have an energetic auric field. You have an aura, trees have an aura, and even rocks have an aura. How is this possible, you ask? The simple answer is energy.

The  human aura is the representation of energy that changes with thoughts an emotions. It’s the energy field in the form of an oval shape that envelops your physical form and is, in essence, a vital part of your total being.

The aura is comprised of colors. Think of a prism of light that reflects colors. Your unique prism contains colors which reflect your feelings, moods, and thoughts. These things are constantly changing therefore, your auric colors change from moment to moment.

This field of light can be seen by most holistic healers and some clairvoyants. The colors and their level of brightness reveal much about the vitality, health, and emotional state of a person.

Chakras Determine Your Main Aura Colors

What creates the aura colors? The answer lies in the electromagnetic field which is created by particular energy centers called chakras.

Chakras are rotating energetic centers that assimilate the life force and distribute this vital force throughout the body. Additionally, the colors of these centers radiate outwards and blend to make the overall human aura.

Aura Colors Change Due to the Functioning of Chakras

Dependent upon how well the chakras are functioning and each one’s openness, aura colors around a person change from moment to moment. How is this? Aura colors change as your mood changes. Any person with the ability to see the human aura around a person will notice these changes almost immediately.
