What is an Aura?

The Aura is the energetic anatomy of different layers, called the subtle bodies. The human being is a holographic existence based on 12 dimensional levels. Our physical body is the densest and the core of our entire dimensional existence.

The first three subtle bodies, that we are aware of either by seeing or sensing, that are closest to the physical body are the Etheric Body (light salmon), Emotional Body (orange), and the Mental Body (Yellow). Each subtle layer works with a specific chakra which is connected to the original template and to a DNA strand. 

Every individual is born with specific frequencies/colour, I call them essences. This doesn’t change as it is like a finger print or ingredient that makes us who we are.

Throughout life as we change, evolve and grow, we can have more than one colour in our aura, and these colours can change with time depending on the level of awareness. Imagine a single ray of light being divided into many different rays of colours of the rainbow when it hits a glass prism. Originally, we are that initial white light ray that contains all the frequencies or colours that is perfection or source. Our aim in our growth and awareness is to become and embody the rainbow.

What is your Aura Colour, and How to see your Aura Colour:

With practice, you can learn to see your aura and the auras of those around you.

Start practising by looking at someone standing against a white or black background with no direct light. Make sure you are about 3-4 metres away and are looking with relaxed peripheral vision. Look at the outline of the person while you soften your gaze, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the colours and shapes as long as you relax.

Like all worthwhile things, you will need practice and the how easily it comes to you differs with each individual. The chakra system is also connected with the auric system, so the corresponding colours, planets, numbers, frequencies make it possible to find your aura colour with numerological and astrological calculations.
