Feeling vs seeing energy, how empaths perceive the aura
An aura is a colored light that emanates from all things, and is formed from energetic vibrations. It can be observed around people, animals, plants and even inanimate objects. It surrounds you in layers and is egg shaped. The aura will give you information about the energy, emotions and health of person you are focusing on. They are most commonly seen around the head and shoulders of people and around animals, and it radiates up a few inches. Auras of living beings are in a state of flux and motion, constantly changing according to internal and external stimuli, health and emotions.
Empaths are highly sensitive people that feel and connect with the energy of other people, places and animals. A developed empath can tune in and feel energy around all things. Consider that everything is energy and the difference between one thing and of another is simply the frequency, the rate it’s vibrating. Yoda had it right, the force is everywhere, and flows through everything and empaths can train themselves into awareness, perceive and connect with this. Empaths feel energy, they connect with it and receive whatever information is contained within. One caveat though, an empath can only translate that information according to their level of development. Just like a computer can only compute according to its operating software. If the software is windows 5.1 and the information requires windows 8.1….. it’s not going to interpret that data. Each empath has a level of development and also strengths and weaknesses (akin to personality qualities). Perhaps your level of development is quite high, does that mean you will see energy as an aura? Not necessarily, your strength may lie in the auditory realm (clairaudience), or perhaps it is in clair-cognizance (clear knowing). Each empath is a unique individual and will express their gifts differently. Can you train yourself to increase your perception and learn to see the aura? Absolutely, here is an exercise:
Situate the person in front of a very softly illuminated white background. A color background will change aura colors, so you need to start with white. Choose one spot to look at. The middle of the forehead is good. This is a location of so called brow chakra or the third eye. Look at this spot for 30 to 60 seconds or longer. After 30 seconds analyze surroundings with your peripheral vision, while still looking at the same spot. Continuing the concentration is important. Resist temptation to look around. You should notice that the background nearby the person is brighter and has a different color than the background further away. This is your perception of the aura. The longer you concentrate, the better you will see it. It does take practice and patience to become accomplished, try it!
There are seven auric bodies. The physical body, which encompasses body sensations, physical comfort, pleasure, and health. The etheric body, which contains emotions and how you feel about yourself. The components of self-acceptance and self-love are found here. The vital body, which concerns the rational mind. Having the ability to understand situations in a clear, linear, logical way. The astral body, which is how you relate to others. The lower mental body is the divine within you. Alignment with the divine within enables you to make an authentic commitment to speak and follow the truth. The higher mental body connects you to divine love, and spiritual fulfillment. Finally the spiritual body which is divine mind, and the opening to serenity. Your connection to divine mind also helps you to understand the greater patterns, a universal viewpoint. This is an eagle view versus being in mouse view (only seeing what’s right in front of you).
The colors and their meanings of auras can help you assess your own energetic health and that of other peoples. Red relates to the root chakra and is powerful, energetic, sexual and passionate. If it is bright and clear it can represent your healthy ego. If it is deep Red it represents a grounded state which is based in what’s real and a strong will-power. However a muddied red relates to anger and is considered negative. A pink color which is bright and light relates to loving tenderness, and can represent a sensitive and affectionate nature. If it is a dark and murky pink though it indicates immaturity. Orange red is a bold, confident and creative energy. Orange in general represents the emotions (second chakra), of vitality and good health. Orange-yellow indicates creative intelligence.
Yellow in the aura relates to the solar plexus chakra and it is life force energy. It is the color of intelligence, manifestation, and optimism. A light or pale yellow expresses emerging psychic and spiritual awareness and growth. Green relates to heart chakra. A healthy color of nature. This seen in the aura this represents growth and balance. This expresses a love of people, animals, and of nature. This is an aura of a teacher, healer or very social person. Yellow-green indicates a creative heart, and a communicative energy. If it is dark or muddy forest green it could represent the negative energy of jealousy and resentment.
Blue in the auric field relates to the throat chakra. A beautiful clear light blue or turquoise represents clarity in communications, possible clairvoyant ability. If it is dark or muddy blue then it expresses fear, of self-expression or fear of facing or speaking the truth. Indigo is the color associated to the third eye chakra, and represents intuition, and deep sensitivity. Violet relates to the crown chakra though some also experience a bright white light here. It is associated with attunement with self but also the connection to the higher self, the divine. It is your visionary, idealistic, and artistic expression of the divine.
