THE WORDS "AURA"
and "color" are inevitably associated. For those able to see or perceive auras,
they almost always appear in various colors. The colors have meanings, depending
on where they are located in relation to the body. The meanings tend to vary somewhat,
depending on which authority is being consulted. To some degree, every "seer" of
auras will, with experience, develop their own interpretations of what they see.
What is an aura,
exactly? Most definitions state that it is an energy field surrounding the body
of a person, animal, or even an inanimate object. Sensitives say that this energy
field emanates from within and is projected out from the body or object, and that
it encompasses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of being. The
aura is made up of a number of layers of energy, each progressively denser the closer
it gets to the body. The aura may extend up to three feet or farther from the body.
It can likewise be seen as a shimmering mist moving around the exterior of the person,
or even as puffballs of colored light escaping from the skin. It also appears as
shafts of white, dark, or colored light streaming out from the body. Each of the
chakras has its equivalent energy level represented in the aura.
The health of
the person under observation can be judged on the purity of the colors. Vibrant,
clear colors are a sign of health; dull, muddied colors are indicative of poor health.
Disease often shows as black patches or spots, usually in the area where it is present
in the physical body. Often the seer will have a strong intuitive sense of where
the problem is specifically located if the aura overall is dark.
also present colors in the aura; but unlike disease, unless treated, these colors
pass as the emotional state changes. Reds and blacks are often associated with anger;
a greenish-brown usually indicates jealousy; and gray can suggest depression and
fear. Other, more permanent colors are seen to emanate from certain types of personalities:
orange from the proud and ambitious person; crimson from those with a passionate,
loving nature; yellow from the intellectual; dark blue from the very spiritual;
and light blue from those possessing noble ideals. The combination of red and green
indicates a woman who does too much for others at the expense of herself.
Traits also have
their commonly seen colors: dull brown from the avaricious; grayish-green from the
cunning and deceitful; and grayish-brown from the selfish, A clear green indicates
a talented healer. No matter what front the outer person puts on, the aura reveals
the inner truth of that person. All of us have a sensitivity to the emanations of
others, whether we are conscious of it or not. Thus, when we meet someone who we
instinctively sense is not what they seem, in part at least, we are reading their
aura. Our so-called invisible" auras always go before us and greet each other before
do so on the conscious plane.
HEALING AND ITS TECHNIQUES
The chakras are the seven points in
the body where energy is focused. The main chakras are positioned from the base
of the spine up to the crown of the head, although there are many other chakra points
throughout the body. The whole concept of chakras and energy focus is part of an
understanding that the mind, body, and spirit exist as part of a field of energy,
the energy of the earth and the cosmos; yet, within that field of energy, it exists
as an individual being in its own right. Various religions and philosophies give
names to these different yet interconnected levels and dimensions of energy. If
energy comes in many shapes and forms, heat, light, inertia, momentum, and so on,
then the idea follows that we, as physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings,
embody many different levels of energy that we can consciously control through appropriate
Within the levels
of energy we embody there exists a spectrum of energies, not unlike, and in fact
related to, color. At its extremes are the denser, purely physical energies that
relate to the world of matter and reproduction, related to red and often described
as "dense." At the "highest" level are the energies of the spirit: lighter, subtle,
refined, easily overlooked in the hurly-burly of everyday life, and related to purple.
Between these are five other levels, each relating to a different facet of life.
The energies of red, orange, and yellow are considered coarser, with the energies
of blue, indigo, and purple more ethereal. In the middle, and neutral, is green.
Each of these
levels relates to an organ of the body; and has a corresponding color. The colors
follow the spectrum, with the longest, slowest wavelength of red connected to the
lowest level of body energy; The connections continue upward, with purple representing
the faster, highest spiritual energies.
THE SPINAL CHAKRAS
The chakras are
often described as a rotating wheel or vortex of energy, and in the following exercise,
you may find it helpful to visualize them as such. Because of the powerful connection
between colors and the chakras, by applying the appropriate color, their functioning
is LEFT Energizing the chakras can be accomplished with a simple hands-on visualization
technique. The position of the chakras is shown in the accompanying chart, and the
colors and their corresponding glands are shown opposite. The spine chakras also
embody various human attributes, which can be strengthened or given emphasis through
raising the energy of the associated chakra. The associated attributes are:
- RED root chakra: sexuality, survival, reproduction
ORANGE sacral chakra: "gut level" emotion, creativity
plexus chakra: self-esteem, relationships, social identity
- GREEN heart chakra: love, self-acceptance, acceptance of others
- BLUE throat chakra: self-expression, voicing opinions
- INDIGO brow chakra: intuition, insight
- PURPLE crown chakra: cosmic connection, spiritual opening,
and understanding improved and balanced.
can be used to give an overall boost to the system, to focus healing on a specific
area of the body, or to strengthen the dimension of life associated with a particular
chakra. The method is simplicity itself.
- Close your eyes and visualize the color corresponding to the
chakra you wish to enliven.
- Now place both hands
over your eyes and visualize that particular color flowing into the palms of your
hands and energizing them.
- Place both hands over
the chakra area down the front of the body and visualize the color flowing into
the body, directing the color through to the spinal chakra point.
Repeat the same procedure for any or all of the remaining chakras, usually for three
minutes at a time, to align, restore, harmonize, and balance, as desired.
Light is the
mask of the Creator. All life of earth depends on light from the Sun, a source of
life and energy. Color is the different qualities of light. Light is the masculine
or positive force in Nature, color is the feminine or negative force.
The soul always
lives in color. Color is as necessary to the soul as air is to the body. When we
take away the motion of light or color, we have no awareness of the appearance of
matter. We receive all knowledge of the Universe through this electromagnetic radiation.
White light contains the energies of all elements and chemicals found in the sun.
This white light of the sun is absorbed from the atmosphere by the physical body
and is split into component color energies, which in turn flow to different parts
of the body to vitalize them. Light is a force stimulating growth; every living
thing depends upon it to build and maintain its form. Light brings about chemical
changes in the body. Therefore, light – whose source is solar energy – is one of
Nature's greatest healing forces.
In 1665, Isaac
Newton beamed sunlight through a prism and found the presence of the seven basic
colors. The human body is also a prism that reflects this white light. Color therapy
is the science of using different colors to change or maintain vibrations of the
body to that frequency which signifies good health and harmony. Healing by means
of color was the first type of therapy used by humans; it is Nature's own method
for keeping the body in balance with the rhythms of life. Color expresses the way
we think. Our emotions and actions affect the electromagnetic field which surrounds
us and is reflected in our aura.
Color can help
to restore balance when a blockage of imbalance of this energy has resulted in disease.
The use of color can help to restore vitality to the etheric body through the projection
of specific color rays, which are then absorbed by the chakra centers. The pituitary
gland transforms these colors into revitalizing energies to rebuild the centers
that are lacking in energy. Color healing shows us how to make light work for us.
The use of color is one of the many natural tools available to help us walk in balance
Life is color;
each organ has a specific color. Each color has intelligence and polarity, knows
its functional role and works selectively. Color is a vibratory energy that can
activate a particular organ, gland and system in the body. The application of the
correct frequency of the electro-magnetic force field will change the altered function
of the body and help return it to its original patterns. It is this energy, which
is the result of applying color, that is important in the healing process. This
method of healing will create harmony and balance in the mind and in the body. Color
therapy is very effective because it helps to maintain this balance.
is not only a physical, but also a spiritual force and thus forms a link between
our physical bodies and the finer forces of vibrations, higher levels of consciousness
or spiritual growth. Color is the bridge beween our inner and outer bodies. The
vibrations of color are energy of the Life-Force itself and are here to aid us in
our growth and progress toward the oneness which is our ultimate purpose. The more
intimate our color experiences become, the more attuned we will become with the
We have a quota
of ultraviolet that most of us do not fulfill because so many modern products cut
out that portion of the spectrum and because we do not spend enough time outdoors.
We can increase our exposure to full-spectrum light by simply being being out in
the Sun more.

The body is a
crystal that takes in the white light of the Sun and reflects the seven colors of
the rainbow back to the Universe through the Chakras. The pituitary gland is a prism
that breaks down the light (energy), refracts it and distributes it to the body
through the Chakras.
