Everything You Need to Know About Getting Your Aura Read

By Joyce Barnes

Date November 17, 2015

It seems that more and more people are being drawn to aspects of the supernatural these days, like astrology, healing crystals and Reiki. From psychics to tarot readers, it’s not hard to find someone to talk to you about what’s going on inside (like, way inside). So, we’ve broken down auras to help you understand what they are, how reading works, and what all those colours mean.

What is an aura?

An aura is the energy field that you see around the body of animals, plants and humans (it kinda looks like a mist). When you start seeing auras, you see just a few inches close to the body and they’re always white in colour, but as you develop your talent you will be able to see different colours.

Because the body is mostly energy and water, people have the ability to change colours constantly, telling us how they’re feeling. As a spiritual energy healer, I know how uncomfortable it is when someone steps in my energy field. I find myself backing up. So whether you believe in this stuff or not, we’ve broken down the meaning of each aru

Are there different parts of an aura?

The aura has three planes and seven bodies of energy, which are:

The physical plane, which includes the etheric body, emotional body and mental body. These three bodies are connected to the earth.

The astral plane, which includes the astral body. This is the bridge between the physical and the spiritual plane; it comes from your heart connection.

The spiritual plane, which includes etheric physical, celestial body and the ketheric body. This is your intuition, your connection to the divine.

How long has aura reading been around?

Knowing about the energy fields of living bodies is a 5000 year old tradition in certain cultures. In the west, we are now learning more and more about the importance of the energy fields or auras. Many religions talk about a light appearing around people. Hinduism talks about a universal energy field called Prana, the East calls it Chi, Kabbalah talks about the astral light, and Christians talked about seeing bright light around people’s body. It is said that paintings of saints with a halo around them is the aura. The artists did not understand what they were seeing so it became represented as the halo.

What to expect if you have a photo of your aura taken:

There are many different approaches. One of them, Kirlian photography, was invented in 1939. It is defined as “a technique for recording photographic images of corona discharges and hence, supposedly, the auras of living creatures.” This process reveals visible auras around objects. Because with the Kirlian photography, you can see auras around living and non-living objects, this process of seeing auras is often ignored by energy healers or mystics. One thing I know for sure is that people just love to have their aura picture taken. Kirlian photography is always available at psychic fairs. The photo will show you the different colours in your energy field. When I do an aura reading, I will give you a drawing of your aura colours with the explanations on the different colours.

Where do chakras come into this?

The colours of the aura is directly related to the chakras (the seven centers of spiritual power in the human body), so if some of the chakras are imbalanced it will be reflected in the aura. Because I work with chakras and colours I will use this information to read your aura. Depending on the colours I see in the energy field, it will tell me how you feel physically, emotionally or spiritually. We can bring a lot of insight to a client by reading their aura. You know the saying, “She has an aura about her,” it means that person has a strong positive aura. But your aura never stays the same colour; it depends on your feelings. Since I understand the chakras, energy and colours I can see and feel the imbalance in auras. By looking at energy fields we can see the cords of attachment (they look like strings from a puppet). We can also see tears in your aura and we can repair the tears in your energy fields quite easily. To me the tears look like lightning bolts.

What do the colours mean?

Every colour is important because they all have a different energy and affect your mood. These are the colours that we see more frequently in auras (and what they represent):
Red: Passion, anxiety, vitality, anger
Orange: Ambition, change, creativity
Yellow: Intellect, over-analyzing, self-esteem
Green: Nurture, compassion, balance, love
Blue: Self-expression, sensitivity, calm, communication
Indigo: Deep connection to the spirit, intuition, paranormal powers
Purple: Deeper connection to the divine, confusion, addiction, depression, wisdom, in need of meditation
White: Truth, peace, comfort, removal of pain

These colours are more unusual to see in an aura:
Pink: New love, self-love
Lavender: Intuition, vision, artistic nature
Turquoise: My favourite! This is the best colour to change your vibration and bring you plenty of everything (love, money, good friends etc.)
Black: Grief, past life problems, health issues, protection
Silver: Spiritual and financial abundance
Gold: Divine protection, enlightenment

Now that you are more aware of auras and meaning of colours, be more selective of the colour you are wearing and the colours in your home. You can even get the sense of how people are feeling by the colours they are wearing.

How to Cleanse Your Aura

As energy fields that surround living beings and inanimate objects alike, auras can say so much about the bearer. What if negative energies, blockages, and asynchronous issues have left your aura feeling off balance? The aura, just like all physical forms, can be neglected. This leads to all sorts of problems, not to mention mood disorders like depression and anxiety.

Number of issues can cause your aura to become blocked or distorted. Negative thoughts directed toward you, emotions that you haven’t fully processed, and past life experiences are just some of the concerns that can block your aura. With a past life reading, you may be able to get to the root of some of your thoughts. Spiritual problems and emotional issues can also throw your aura out of synchronization. All of these imbalances can leave you feeling tired, negative, and disconnected. When this happens, it’s necessary to cleanse your aura.

  • Visualize your aura.

    Start the cleansing process by visualizing your aura. You can do this by sitting or lying down in a comfortable position for about 15 minutes. Concentrate on breathing continuously, with no space between each inhale and exhale. Do your best to feel your breath and how it extends to your fingers and toes. Envision a white light originating over your head and slowly enveloping your whole body. Know that you’re safe with this universal white light surrounding you.

  • Cleanse your aura.

    Next, envision this light spreading its energy far and wide, touching everything around you. Remember that everything the light touches is a safe area, and you’re surrounded by nothing but protection and love. Here are some additional tips for cleansing your aura:

    • Get and stay healthy.

      The first step toward brightening a dark aura is putting ill-health behind you and striving for strength and fitness. If you’ve fallen into an unhealthy rut, begin to make some big changes. Eating well at each meal, exercising daily, and getting enough sleep each night are the first steps toward feeling better about yourself. Make sure they’re not just short-term goals but long-term ones, too, so your aura will stay bright for many days to come.

    • Move past negative thoughts.

      Dwelling on negative thoughts can really drag you down, causing your aura to appear cloudy and dark. Instead of allowing yourself to focus on the negative, surround yourself with positivity and optimistic people. Turn up music that energizes with you, schedule a date with your most positive friends, think about how you, too, can emanate positivity, and let the negativity slip away. If you’re having trouble letting certain thoughts lie, phone a psychic for advice on how to move on.

    • Try crystal healing.

      Place crystals around your window sills and around your bed or place you sleep. Once placed, negative energy cannot enter these areas. Crystals are derived from the earth element and are very grounding.

    • Practice smudging as a form of energy clearing.

      For centuries, Smudging has been used to remove unwanted and stale energies in homes, offices and around physical bodies. To use: Light a small bundle of sweet white sage and rotate the sage in circles around your body or desired area. The unwanted energies will instantly dissolve. Be sure to open your doors and windows for the complete circulation of the sage. Smudging is from the fire element and instantly purges and clears your aura.

    • Take a sea salt bath.

      Pour three cups into your bath water and soak for 20 minutes. Not only will unwanted energies disappear, you will feel calm, centered and reborn. Yes, reborn from just one Sea salt bath! Sea salts are derived from the earth and water elements and, again, leave you feeling stable and productive.

    • Go for a walk.

      When your days get over scheduled with work and family commitments, it’s easy to let your regular time outdoors slide. Remember that constantly being cooped up indoors is bound to have a negative effect on your body, mind, and aura. Whether it’s winter or summer, take the time to go outside. If possible, go beyond just your backyard or your neighborhood. Seek out an unspoiled slice of nature where you can breathe fresh, clean air and soak in the life around you. Grounding yourself by reconnecting with nature will give your aura a new shine. Take a walk in the forest, in the desert, or on the beach and allow your feet to feel the soothing impact of the earth beneath your feet. When you connect with the earth’s sand or soil, all unwanted energies fly right through the moisture particles of the air and straight into the Sun’s electric rays leaving your aura refreshed and invigorated. The walk incorporates all four elements of earth, wind, water and fire – the perfect alchemy to restore your aura to a balanced state of health and harmony.

    • Find beauty around you.

      Sometimes you just don’t have the time to trek outside. When you’re really pressed for time, you might deal with stress by putting on blinders and focusing only on what’s in front of you. While this might be a good short-term coping method, it can hurt you in the long run. Take a few moments to breathe and find the beauty around you, whether it manifests itself in your wonderful family, an expression of love, or a vase of freshly cut flowers. Your aura will take on a lighter and brighter hue when you’re feeling happy and energized.

    • Make time for introspection and meditation.

      Dig deep into your subconscious, and ask yourself what you really want in life. How can you make your desires come to fruition? What do you have to offer to others, and what do you need? How can you make yourself feel as good as possible?

    • Commit a random act of kindness.

      If you have difficulty doing something nice for yourself, try doing something nice for someone else instead. From complimenting a friend to leaving baked goods for a neighbor to making a long overdue visit to a family member, committing a random act of kindness can put a real spring in your step. When you’re feeling good about your interactions with those around you, your aura will show it.

Brightening your aura boosts your mood and improves relationships with those around you. If you constantly suffer from a muddy, dark aura, get a psychic reading to better understand how your health and happiness interact.

Do you, like me, ever feel really uncomfortable in an elevator when you’ve got company?

That’s because the other peoples’ auras are encroaching on your aura and vice versa. Most people stand looking up at the floor-count in elevators and can’t wait to bail out on their floor, me included.

Our aura is our energy field, and we subconsciously feel it as our personal space. Most of us don’t like strangers coming into our personal space uninvited, and that’s why if someone stands too close, we instinctively step back.

But do you know that we can instinctively sense auras as well? Want to know more?

What are auras about?

We are all spirits having a human experience, and it’s our spirit that vibrates through us creating an energy field around us that’s known as our aura.

Ancient wisdom knew and lived by all of this, but sadly today most people have lost touch with their innate wisdom, rejecting it as mystical or supernatural hoo-hah.

But hoo-hah it certainly isn’t:

And that’s why we sense each other auras all the time. Not just in crowded spaces. Have you ever noticed when you’re feeling ill or depressed how other people and even your pets react? People generally react with avoidance, and that makes you feel even worse.

Animals on the other hand will mostly stick by you, cuddle up and try to comfort you (animals are way wiser than humans.)

When we aren’t in a good space, that negativity comes through in our aura. Anyone who comes into contact with us will pick up negative vibes and mostly respond with negativity (humans are a defensive bunch).

And it goes a step further:

If we’re rushed and feeling anxious and irritated, things can start going pear-shaped rapidly. Stuff goes wrong; people can seem confrontational or unhelpful … why? Because they’re reacting to the negative vibes they’re getting. Turn the corner and put a big smile on your dial, and see how everything changes. You’re putting out positive vibes, so people around you react positively.

So that proves that we communicate through our auras on a daily basis. Our auras are a reflection of who and what we are, and what’s going down for us big time or on a daily basis. And just in case you doubt that all living beings have an aura, check out Kirlian photography.

If we could see our own aura, we’d be able to know ourselves much better and heal ourselves when we need healing. If we could see other people’s auras, we’d probably be more understanding, kind and compassionate.

What are aura readings?

Aura readings are done by readers who can see or perceive your aura. Psychics, in particular, are inclined to see auras, but people in healing professions are often also able to see auras.

What’s the purpose?

Aura readings are excellent for helping you sort yourself out. When things in your life just don’t seem to be working for you, or if you’re feeling drained and depressed (or both), an aura reading will be able to identify where the problems lie and guide you on how you can fix it all.

Auras resonate in different colours, often connected to the colours emitted by the Chakras. But where the colours of the Chakras are constant, the colours of our auras can change depending on what’s going on for us at the time. Aura colours range from bright white, silver and gold, to all the colours of the rainbow to black, brown and muddied shades.

We also have dominant aura colours that can tell a lot about our personality, habits and our progress in life. But these can also change as we evolve, and seeing as our life-journey is a journey of learning and gaining wisdom, our aura colours are meant to change.

Aura colours and what they mean:



  • Bright to pale pink: Loving, tender, sensitive, sensual, artistic, affection, purity, compassion
  • Dark murky pink: Immaturity, dishonesty


  • Bright orange: Vitality, vigour, good health, energy, stamina
  • Pale orange: Creative, productive, adventurous, courageous, outgoing, social
  • Muddied orange: Stress related disorders, addictions, compulsions
  • Orange-yellow: Intelligent, detail oriented, perfectionist, scientific


  • Light to pale yellow: Optimism, hopeful, positive, excitement
  • Bright yellow: Fear of losing control, prestige, respect, seeking power
  • Clear gold: Awakened spiritual energy, inspiration
  • Dark yellow or gold: Immaturity, overly self-analytical, feeling left out or lost out


  • Bright green: Healing abilities, love, heart-centred
  • Green-yellow: Creativity, communication
  • Muddied green: Jealousy, resentment, victim-thinking, blaming self or others, insecurity, low self-esteem, lack of personal responsibility, over-sensitivity


  • Pale blue: Peaceful, clarity, truthful, intuitive
  • Bright blue: Spirituality, generosity, on the right life-path
  • Muddied blue: Fear of the future, fear of self-expression, fear of facing the truth


  • Psychic powers, intuitive, visionary, futuristic, idealistic, artistic, magical


  • Imagination, vision


  • Bright silver: Abundance (physical or spiritual), receptive to new ideas, intuitive, nurturing
  • Muddied silver: Fear-based health problems
  • Grey: Blockages, distortions


  • Divine guidance and protection, wisdom, inner knowledge, spirituality, intuition


  • Health problems due to un-forgiveness, psychic attack, past life pains, unreleased grief
  • Blockages, distortions, holes or voids


  • Non-physical, purity, truth, outside Spirit energy

What will aura readings tell me?

There’s so much that you can learn from aura readings, but one thing you won’t get is info about your future. Aura readings don’t predict the future; they’re all about what’s happening in your life right now, and how you can improve or fix it.

Aura readings can:

  • Identify blockages, distortions or holes in your energy field
  • Identify physical and mental illness
  • Tell you what type of healing you need
  • Tell you about your spiritual journey
  • Tell you more about yourself

Plain old curiosity is an excellent reason to have an aura reading, but if you’re struggling with your health, relationships, career, finances or anything else, aura readings can give insight into why you’re caught up in these situations. Remember that in all instances in life, it’s not the situation, but our response to the situation that causes our struggles and pain.

We can easily get cause up in wrongful thinking patterns, unhealthy habits, self-destructive behaviours, unrealistic expectations and all kinds of attachments without realising it, and aura readings can pinpoint the source of our struggles and pain so that we can begin to implement change.

And the pinpointing the source of our struggles and pain is what makes aura readings so great because we can’t possibly implement change in our lives if we don’t know the source of our problems.

How can I guarantee an accurate aura reading?

Many people in healing professions like reiki practitioners, crystal healers, energy healers and reflexologists can read auras. But if you’re new to aura healing, I’d suggest you call on a psychic for an aura reading.

If you’re opting for a psychic aura reading, visiting online psychic reading sites is the best way to go to get accurate aura readings. These sites have loads of genuine aura readers who have been thoroughly screened before they joined, so there’s no doubting their abilities.

All psychic reading sites also profile their readers, so you can get to know more about a psychic before you dive in for an aura reading. It’s really easy to get aura readings online: check out our partner site Oranum.

Reading types: phone, email, sms & text

Because you’re going the online route, you can get your reading by phone, online chat, email or sms depending on the psychic reading site you choose. Phone or online chat readings are immediate, while sms and email psychic readings are more personal and private, and you have the written record of the reading so you can check your healing progress against you next aura reading. I think that’s really cool, especially where healing is concerned.

And please don’t go thinking that aura readings online don’t work. Yes, if you go to a healing practitioner they do see you face to face, so they can see your aura there and then; but psychics can also see your aura there and then. How? Because psychics who do aura readings use clairvoyance to see your aura. Clairvoyance is a psychic ability to see beyond space and time, so actually, a psychic will be able to see your aura more clearly than someone who is sensing your aura with the naked eye.

Are aura readings the same as psychic healing then?

Yes and no, depending on why you want to have an aura reading.

If you want to have an aura reading out of curiosity, you won’t need any healing. The aura reading will tell you more about who and what you are, what you like and dislike and where you’re heading spiritually. If that appeals to you, add an astrology reading or numerology reading, and you’ll be amazed by what you learn.

If you know that you need healing of any kind, an aura reading is the best place to start. An aura reading will tell you where you’re actually at right now, and pinpoint the source of your struggles and pain. From there you can have psychic healing sessions, and if you need it, seek medical help so that you can start to get things sorted.

Aura readings are also excellent for people who are being treated for physical or mental illness because the reader can guide them through their healing process and monitor how well they are doing.

How much does an aura reading cost?

Anything goes really! You can expect to pay from $0.99 to $9.99 per minute.

But when you first sign up with Oranum, you get a FREE TRIAL and CHAT, and once you have chosen your psychic, you get $9.99 FREE CREDITS loaded to your account.

That’s really an excellent deal!

You’ll have to open an account and fund it before you have your reading, but that’s real easy because you pay by credit card. Oranum has a secure payment gateway, so there’s no worrying about your card details are secure.

How to identify an accurate, legit aura reader:

Whether you go to a face to face healer or opt for an online aura reading, word of mouth is the only way to go if you are looking for an accurate and legit aura reader. Anyone can tell you they’re seeing your aura, and you’d be none the wiser. Online psychic reading sites are definitely the way to go because they profile all their readers and list all past client reviews and comments on each reader’s profile. If an aura reader isn’t the real deal, they won’t last online.

The reviews and comments left by past clients are genuine and unedited. People don’t lie when they rate a psychic. Most people who want an aura reading have real issues that they need to be resolved. There’s no brownie points for leaving good reviews and comments for a fake.

Pros and cons of aura readings:

  • Aura readings can tell you more about yourself
  • Aura readings can help you unblock your energy flow
  • Aura readings can pinpoint the source of your struggles and pain
  • Aura readings can guide you to find the type of healing you need
  • Aura readings can possibly connect you with loved ones now in Spirit
  • Aura readers can’t predict your future
  • Aura readers can easily be impersonated by fakes
  • Aura readings can give you info, but not the definite answers
  • Aura readings can identify health problems you’re unaware of
  • Aura readers can tell you things about yourself you might not like to hear

How To Find Out What Your Aura Color Is & Learn A Bit More About Yourself

Do you remember that movie Almost Famous? More specifically, the scene where William is trying to have a phone call with his mom, but a clairvoyant Band-Aid keeps shouting “Your aura is purple!” in his face? Well, that was the first time I had ever heard of auras, but the idea of a color belonging to someone immediately had me intrigued. I wondered to myself, what is an aura, exactly? How do you find out what your aura color is? And when I find out, will I finally have answers to age-old questions about my destiny?

While auras don’t necessarily hold the key to the universe, they can say a lot about your current state of mind, as well as your purest essence as a human being. Each color in the auric spectrum originates from one of the seven chakras in your spirit. As your mood and perspective changes over time, so does the nature of your aura. The colors that reveal themselves through your aura signify the impact your energy has on not only yourself, but also the rest of the world.

Deciphering the meaning behind your aura colors can help you clarify the way you’ve been living your life. If you’re not happy with what your aura says about the person you’ve been lately, you can then make necessary changes to your mindset that will help you leave a more positive mark on the world. Lucky for you, there are several ways you can find out what colors your aura is made of.

Have Your Aura Photographed

Roya Backlund

The easiest and most straightforward way to analyze and interpret your aura is by having a photograph taken of it. There are several auric photography projects all over the world, with famous ones including Radiant Human, Halo Auragraphic, and Magic Jewelry. The way these photographs work is by having you place your hands on a biosensor that measures the temperature and electrical impulses present in your body. These take shape in the form of your aura, which a camera then captures.

Even if you don’t care to know what your aura colors mean, these photographs are always incredibly beautiful and are an asset to anyone’s Instagram feed.

Take A Quiz To Find Out Your Aura Color


While this is not the most precise form of aura reading, it is free of charge and takes little to no effort. If you also happen to be extremely self-aware, the results may even prove to be quite accurate. There are several aura reading quizzes online that you can choose from, with BuzzFeed’s being a much faster quiz and Pamala Oslie’s being much more in-depth.

Keep in mind that auras are so complex and nuanced that they can mean something much more specific to you than what a quiz result states. This is why I don’t personally find quizzes to be the best way to understand the full picture of your aura.

Have A Professional Read Your Aura


Being able to see someone’s aura is considered a psychic skill and there are professional spiritualists, shamans, and clairvoyants who offer their skills as a service. If you’d like to go down this route, find someone reputable, experienced, and trustworthy. You definitely don’t want your aura read by someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

Each reader has their own process, but it usually includes a ritual to cleanse, strengthen, and heal your aura after deciphering the specific nature your own spiritual needs.

Learn How To Read Auras On Your Own


Of course, everyone has psychic capabilities wedged somewhere inside of them. In fact, it is said that young children are all able to read auras (which explains why some people just make kids very upset for seemingly no reason). While they tend to lose this skill with age, there’s no reason why they can’t tap back into it again later on in life.

Learning how to read auras on your own takes patience and a lot of practice. There are several different exercises you can try out and there are many ways an aura can be deciphered. You may be able to see it, feel it, or even “hear” it, depending on your own psychic talents.

How to See Auras

3. Color is King

As we explored, it is the presence of color that will best hone your
ability to read auras. To expand your sight, go into a neutral colored
room and play with brightly colored objects. I find this best taped to
the wall at a distance so I can practice my periphery best. Close your
eyes and breathe asking the colors to show themselves to you. Gaze at
the color (poster board or a solid color wrapped object are good) while
breathing deeply. Again allow your gaze to soften almost as if you are
looking through it.

Take note of the field outside of the colored object. You’ll begin to
notice a pale, shimmer of color coming off of it. This is the magic of
reading the aura. As you gain confidence with single colors, gradually
add in multi-colored objects to expand your psychic vision.

4. Read the Aura of Another

As plants are our most gracious earth allies, start with them– plus
they won’t say anything if you’re wrong!

When you’re ready to move on to people, please get their permission
first. This will ensure free will is honored and will grant you access
to see their aura. This is simply polite after all and will ensure
clean boundaries and access to the unseen realms are respected.

Ask them to stand 14-18 inches in front of you against the neutral wall.
Look at the wall- not your friend- and begin to sense the field. Softly
gazing through her and at the wall around her. Ask the aura to show
itself to you, and pay attention to not only your vision but also your
sense of the colors. Once you’ve made this connection in reading the
aura, up the game by asking them to move around slowly to see if you can
still sense the same colors. As a fun bonus, put on their favorite music
to see if the colors shift.

5. Self-Practice

Once you’ve honed your skills with others you may be up for trying to
read your own aura! Note that this may be a bit more challenging but is
an excellent practice at strengthening your intuitive abilities. Sit in
a quiet meditative space and clear your mind. Set an intention that you
would like access to “see” your own aura.

Gently rub your hands together, this activates energy between the two
hands and turns on the Aka. The stickiness (or sense of being magnetized
to one another) you may feel is known as Aka — the ethereal substance
of life– to the ancient Egyptians and is the invisible thread that
creates matter.

Focus your attention between the palms and see if you can sense a color
to these threads of energy. It may feel like mist or fog even but your
physical sense of color will confirm and bolster your psychic vision.

Seeing auras is just one step to greater awareness and elevating our
consciousness for it brings us into alignment with those people,
spaces and situations which serve us best.

The blessing of how to read auras is that it gives us a direct
experience of energetic reality which we often ignore. When we can honor
the invisible reality we navigate through each day, it will slow down
our fast pace and bring us into greater harmony with the spiritual
nature of reality all around us.

The true majesty of the aura is that it doesn’t lie. In this luminescent
sheen, all untold beauty lies waiting to be discovered. We all have
auras, that colorful field that decorates the Light
Body. Plants, animals, people, and even
buildings all radiate distinct colors which reveal more than our words

While not the most impressive party trick, paying attention to a
person’s aura will tell you much more than words alone. Little effort is
required but perhaps patience on yourself as you begin to notice the
field, will serve you best.

How can we begin to read these subtle fields then to learn to see more
than what is being given to us? It is quiet easy to learn how to read
auras but first let’s cover some basics before you begin.


A vibrant color indicates spiritual awareness and wellbeing, while dull or muddied colors reveal energetic sluggishness or sickness. Those who balance their chakras, practice yoga, and make conscious eating choices will naturally radiate from their acts of self-love. Less pronounced colors may indicate places where more awareness is necessary.

The colors in the auric field reveal much. While some may physically see them, others may be able to feel them. I am a clairsentient, which means I can sense things much better than I can see them (clairvoyant). Begin with your psychic senses that come naturally.

Invite the colors to wash over you, noticing how each feels in your subtle and physical bodies. When you become familiar with the vibrations of colors it is easier to notice them in others. This is an easy, accessible way for beginners to sense the aura.


The location of each color will reveal interesting details. For instance, if someone carries red around their chest, it may indicate a frustrated heart while white around the crown will portray an advanced soul.

The first time I had an aura photo taken, the image showed a black arch over my head. Black seems weird, but I was in the hands of an expert who asked if I had ever had a near death experience. “Nope,” I replied. She smiled deeply and said “You must be a shaman then who is able to cross between the worlds of life and death.” She saw something in me that (at that time) I had not even fully embraced in myself.


The aura surrounds the entire body, but most often Kirlian photos will simply capture the field around the head and chest. There are many ways to physically capture the aura with diagnostic accuracy, but in the absence of cool technology you can easily learn to sense these fields for yourself.

The fields around the upper body are a good indicator of where the person is now. Sometimes jagged, sometimes smooth, the texture will also reveal energetic consistency.

Flashes of color are sometimes seen outside of field. Called “clouds” or “flares”, these can indicate tendencies that don’t always permeate the field directly but are influential.

Large blocks of color or human-shaped colors most often reveal the presence of guides. I once had the outline of a golden body standing to my right indicating the companionship of a Ascended Master I had been working with quite regularly. Loved ones may appear to simply say hello.

One weekend I did 300 aura readings. Watching the colors dance through each soul was a sensory overload, but a massive learning experience. I didn’t know how to read auras before that weekend but I learned quickly. I was amazed by how each person matched their field. Rarely was I stumped or surprised by what I saw in the image and the person standing before me. I was heartened to see the accuracy of these beautiful impressions.

Aura | Chakra Reading

Aura / Chakra Reading /Soul Reading

Aura / Chakra Reading
Sessions: by phone, in person
Duration: 45 min. – 1 hour reading
Price:$2.20 / minute

An Aura / Chakra reading involves my looking at your aura and chakra centers , these are energy centers that are aligned down the front and back of the body. I work with the chakras to gain insight(s) regarding your mental, emotional and physical states, in doing so I am able to address your questions or situation on a deeper level. The information and understanding you gain also helps facilitate letting go of blocks (emotional and mental) in those chakras. This helps the energy in the aura/chakras to flow freely, throughout your energy system, creating harmony within.

I felt rejuvenated after having a chakra reading & balancing session with Nirup, a peace and calm inside that I had not experienced for quite some time. I learned a lot about myself through the chakra reading, the balancing with the Aura Soma essences and Tibetan bowls was delightful. Thank you. J. M., Miami Fl


The aura is very much a part of us, and can be seen by the naked eye for those who have the ability or develop the sensitivity. I know this because I can see it. The aura consists of various levels of consciousness. It is a representation of your innate traits and potential. It is composed of layers of energy and within the aura is recorded all our experiences, thoughts and feelings. The aura acts like a mirror that shows our current mental, emotional, physical or spiritual condition, and this is what I am tuning into and reading during an aura/chakra reading. We can even detect illness within the aura before it actually manifests into the physical body.

The aura extends beyond the physical body approximately four inches to four feet. Our aura can expand or contract depending on our conditions and is constantly changing throughout the day, as we go through our moods and experiences. The aura also embodies the accumulation of karma from previous incarnations (past lives) and the karmic lessons that we will endeavor to master during this current lifetime. All these things make up a persons true essence. I am sure you have had the experience of feeling an immediate attraction or an aversion upon first meeting someone.

Upon meeting someone we naturally tune into a persons energy field and get some kind of sense or message and then respond to that person accordingly. We are also picking up on energies from the other side, beyond what we know as this physical realm. The aura can act as a receiver for departed ones, our guides or enlightened beings, sending us impressions or messages to help us in this lifetime. It is possible that a crossed over loved one is attempting to contact us, to pass messages on that they are ok, and to have final completion with when needed.

Subtle Bodies

There are seven bodies within the aura, these relate to particular levels: physical, etheric, astral, mental, spiritual, cosmic and nirvanic. The first three relate to our personality levels and the last four to our spiritual levels. Each of the seven bodies has seven different levels or sub-levels, the vibratory rates of which correspond to the seven main bodies. All levels are interrelated; as what affects one affects the others.

If we have problems in the emotional level in the physical body we will have problems also at the emotional level in the emotional, astral, mental, spirit bodies. It is also true that release or cleansing at one level will facilitate release or cleansing at its corresponding level in the other bodies. The ultimate goal is for all to be cleansed and in harmony, at which point we have our greatest power and sense of well-being.


Chakras are vortices through which energy flows both in and out of the body. They are located on the etheric level, this is also known as the body double, it takes the form exactly as our physical body. The chakras rotate like turning a wheel, when functioning properly.

There are seven main chakras, going down the front and back of the body, penetrating just inside as well. There are other chakras more distant from the body in the aura. These chakras eventually need to be developed, but their development is based on the development of the ones at the etheric level. The energy, which powers these vortices, comes from different sources; one is our evolutionary energy, another being our spiritual force within us. These energies come from inside the body and flow out the chakras.

We can build within us this energy through different techniques. Connecting to the cosmic or heavenly energies around us, bringing this energy into the body creates a strong flow of energy within us bringing peace and harmony.

The chakras also receive energy from other people. It can be we take it into us in a gentle and imperceptible or very aware way of pulling it from another, or having a person send it into us in a healing way massage. Techniques like Reiki, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Ki Gong also help to build this energy.

There are different energy frequencies, which control or affect our emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual states. When I tune into you during a chakra reading I can see where your chakras are out of balance, where there may be fears or problems, from this life and possibly other past lives, which may also be locked or blocked at particular levels. Our psychological state and belief system has a specific relationship to one or more of our chakras and has a direct influence on the flow of energy in these centers, this can block the free flow of chi (life energy) in our chakra system, subtle bodies and entire energy field, and the physical body causing illness. To clear any of these issues is can be of benefit to have an aura/chakra reading & balancing, past life regression or a creative therapy session.

When the chakras are open and the energy is flowing freely, you feel infused with life. You feel empowered, loved and nurtured inside and have the energy to accomplish your goals. You will remember that there is divine intelligence and intuition, which helps guide you on your journey, and you will feel your connection to spirit.

Aura Photos & Readings

What’s a Chakra?

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the seven energy centers of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed. These chakras, or energy centers, function as pumps or valves, regulating the flow of energy through our energy system.

The functioning of the chakras reflects decisions we make concerning how we choose to respond to conditions in our life. We open and close these valves when we decide what to think, and what to feel, and through which perceptual filter we choose to experience the world around us.

The chakras are not physical. They are aspects of consciousness in the same way that the auras are aspects of consciousness. The chakras are more dense than the auras, but not as dense as the physical body. They interact with the physical body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system and the nervous system.

Each of the seven chakras is associated with one of the seven endocrine glands, and also with a group of nerves called a plexus. Thus, each chakra can be associated with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by that plexus or that endocrine gland associated with that chakra.

All of your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, everything it is possible for you to experience, can be divided into seven categories. Each category can be associated with a particular chakra. Thus, the chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness.

I Got My Aura Photographed In NYC & It Was Ridiculously Spot On

Tarot card readings, astrology, scrying boards, spellcasting, you name it; ever since I was little, I’ve been drawn to all things mystical and otherworldly. It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that deciphering my auric energy has always been at the top of my list. After being uprooted from my native Los Angeles to spend a few weeks on the East Coast, I finally got the chance to get my aura photographed in NYC. The experience was so validating that I had goosebumps by the time it was over.

If you’re not sure what an aura is beyond a haze of beautiful colors, let me explain. We each radiate our own raw and unique energy. It surrounds you as a protective field, and has an effect on whoever you come in contact with. Each of the seven chakras in your soul give off their own specific color. The vibrancy of the colors that your aura radiates says a lot about your current focus in life. If anyone has ever told you that you give off “good vibes,” chances are that your aura is brimming with brightness. If you’ve been a tangled ball of negativity lately, not to worry. Auras alter and transform with time. Whatever you put into the universe will always come back to you.


To reinforce how bizarre the endeavor of getting your aura photographed truly is, the parlor was situated in an eerie strip mall on the corner of Centre Street in Chinatown. After getting lost through the maze of a few dark hallways, I finally stumbled upon Magic Jewelry, a tiny shop full of crystals and talismans. It was an ordinary Wednesday afternoon and yet the place was crammed with other people eagerly waiting to get their auras photographed, too. To say this is a popular metaphysical phenomenon is an understatement.

When it was finally my turn, I was shown to a seat, instructed to place my hands on two aura sensors, and then told sit still for 10 to 20 seconds. Once the camera had fully captured my energy, the film was removed from the photograph and voila! There I was, surrounded by the beauty of my own aura.

The photograph cost me $20 and included a reading from a man who’s presence simply emanated peace and tranquility. However, his eye for the meaning behind auras was surprisingly sharp. He explained that the left side of your aura expresses your past, the center signifies your present state, and the right side is your future to come.

Roya Backlund

He began by asking if I’ve been traveling a lot lately because the intense red color of my aura signifies a lot of deliberate action, movement, and ambition. Well, he got that right, making me that much more excited to see if he’s really worth his salt.

He then explained that the murky quality of the red color on the left, plus the fact that my energy is a bit on the smaller side, signifies exhaustion, defense mechanisms, and perhaps that I’ve been spending a little too much time around energy vampires. Right again! While I love traveling, I do tend to feel off-kilter when I’m far away from home. The fact that NYC is such a fast-paced and unapologetic city also probably contributed to my instinct to protect myself. To boot, I had been dealing with a few disagreements with people back home in the days leading up to my reading.

What really knocked me out was how he noticed painful energy located in the bottom-center portion of the photograph, which he said could indicate stress in the digestive or reproductive area. Shaking my head in disbelief, I knew exactly what he was talking about. I had started my period just that day and I could literally feel the ache of menstrual cramps in that very moment. Clearly, I had picked a very strange day to have my energy photographed.


On the bright side, he noticed the intense violet color emanating from my heart. This signifies psychic energy, meaning that I’m naturally tuned-in to my intuition and that I can sense spiritual vibrations around me quite easily. I’ve always considered myself skilled at reading the emotions and intentions of others, of knowing whether or not I can trust someone at the drop of a hat. If that has anything to do with the presence of violet, then it all made sense to me.

He also noted that the violet becomes a vibrant pink, with even a slight tinge of blue, in my future. This indicates harmony, love, and contentment, with the pink specifically exposing feelings of romance. Was I excited to be reunited with my boyfriend back in LA soon? Um, extremely.

The bright, potent red on the right side also showed that the next week would be filled with productivity, that I’d perhaps get a lot of interesting things done in the near future. He was right. At that moment, I felt so inspired by my trip to NYC and I was eager to go after my dreams with everything I’ve got.


All in all, the experience was incredibly worthwhile. It helped me understand the importance of refocusing my energy whenever I feel stressed, because let’s be real: A murky aura is a bit disappointing. It also reminded me of my innate strengths as a human being, which includes a powerful intuition and a love for others.

While I can’t tell you for sure whether or not aura photography truly captures one’s soul, I can tell you that you’ll walk away feeling like it did.


After I push a few times on a door that clearly says “pull,” I enter another, even smaller store. I know I’m in the right place now as there’s a customer already there asking for an aura photo.

“This is my third one in nine weeks,” she says. “I just love to see the progression of colors to track my progress.”

This is something people do more than once? I awkwardly make myself busy while she takes a seat in front of an ancient-looking camera in the corner. A minute later, it’s my turn.

I tell the man taking the photo it’s my first time and he smiles widely, instructing me to sit still until he counts to 10, and to keep my hands palms-down on the metal sensors that connect to the “camera.” (Camera is in quotes here because truth be told, I’m not sure it actually is a camera so much as it’s a large black box on stilts with a lens and an excruciatingly slow shutter speed.)

He tells me the sensors will pick up my vibrational frequency and send the information to the camera, where it will then show up as a series of colors on the Polaroid, a visual reflection of my physical and emotional states.

According to a 1971 text called Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain, I’m right to think it’s not exactly a camera. Rather, aura photography (also known as Kirlian photography after the Russian inventor of the process) is a non-camera technique in which a “high-voltage, high-frequency electrical discharge is applied across a grounded object,” and the “air glow” or “aura” yielded is recorded onto the film.

After three sittings — the film is bad and isn’t picking up my aura as the photos develop, a sign I can only interpret to mean I have no aura and am doomed — an intense yellow halo begins to bloom on the Polaroid and my reading begins.

My aura is in the hands of the store’s other employee, a direct-but-friendly woman, who starts off explaining how the reading will work. The right side of the photo represents the energy coming into my life and my future. The left side is where energy exits my body in the form of actions, and shows what’s currently happening in my life. The center of the image above my head is what I’m thinking about right now.

“Your colors are beautiful; they’re bright, thick and full.” I beam, as if I have any control over how bright, thick and full my aura is.

My reading gets better when she says the green on my left is indicative of money and opportunity that will come my way in the next few weeks. “It’s bright, so it’s going to be good,” she says. “Good opportunities are going to come.”

(I have no idea what kind of training this woman has or why I’m believing everything she says, since I assume there isn’t an Aura Reading 101 class offered at any accredited schools nearby. Regardless, I’m eating it up.)

The colors above my head are more or less balanced, which means my left brain (conscious mind) and right brain (subconscious mind) are also balanced. I am the same person inside and out, she tells me: “If you like it, you like it. If you don’t like it, you show it. You’re straightforward and honest.”

Then things take a turn. She says the white light on the right means there are unstable energies, that I’m experiencing a lot of “issues” in my mind and they’re making me unbalanced. I hadn’t really thought of my life as unstable, but as soon as she points this out, I can think of at least four things I’m juggling internally that could be manifesting as the white light.

She then hits me with the news that while I know what I want in life, I’m not doing anything about it. “You’re still adjusting to ways to achieve your goal. You’re still observing, watching how you can improve the situation.” The abundance of yellow light means power, fame, success and leadership, but it’s all in my head.

“On the bright side, it’s not bad, just a little bit confused,” she says. So at least I have that going for me.

I get the feeling she can sense this news has hit me hard — I’ve always thought of myself as a woman of action and conviction — and she softens the blow by reminding me that I can make anything happen if I put my mind (right AND left sides) to it, that the green we talked about earlier is a “pretty good color” that means “some kind of change is going to happen.”

She ends the reading by telling me I’m exhausted. The energies on the left indicate I’m tired, that I need to focus on having more confidence in myself and sleeping more. I’m surprised, since I actually remember thinking I felt pretty rested upon waking that morning, but maybe she means my spirit is exhausted? Who knows.

I leave Magic Jewelry feeling … more or less the same as when I walked in. Maybe it’s a reflection of my status as a millennial, but I’m more concerned with finding a place on the street to prop the picture up so I can put it on Instagram than I am about taking the aura interpretation to heart.

Has my life been changed forever by the last 10 minutes? No. But it’s given me something to think about. Maybe I’m not doing as much as I could. Maybe I do need to sleep more. The interpretations were just vague enough (“think good thoughts” and “some kind of change is going to happen”) that I don’t have to dig too deep to give them meaning or, conversely, take anything too seriously.

When I get to the office, I show off the photo like a proud parent. “Apparently I have great fortune coming my way — see how strong my colors are?” I brag to no one in particular. A co-worker asks if I’ll go back and I tell her I probably will. I’m not an aura convert, but it was a fun way to spend a morning and if nothing else, a few more of these colorful images will make for a great collage in my apartment.

Nestled deep within the changing landscape of Chinatown lies Magic Jewelry – a store encompassed by as many Starbucks, McDonald’s, and banks as crystal shops and Chinese restaurants.

The unassuming storefront doesn’t advertise much beyond, well… jewelry that purports to be magic. They’re not shining too much light on the very thing that draws throngs of people here each day – Aura photos.

The most this service gets is a few laminated print-offs stuck up against the window, overshadowed by the neon signs bearing the store’s name. And yeah – you can buy all manner of crystals, stones, and accessories here, but what you really want to get is your aura photographed.

So how does it all work?

The photographic process that captures a person’s electromagnetic energy field was invented in 1939 by Russian electrical engineer Semyon Kirlian. Your aura is captured through two Polaroid photos taken with two different exposures, the first of which is a straight up, simple pic of you while the other is said to capture your body’s electricity.

The electricity you’re emitting has a color and that’s captured in the second exposure.

That’s your aura.

The folks at Magic Jewelry capture a visual of the electromagnetic energy emitting through your body via hand sensors, and explain where it comes from and what it all means. Your aura can be affected by your mood, how energized or how fatigued you are.

Magic Jewelry’s camera is an 18-year-old contraption, propped up on a tripod, facing a chair that has two metal plates in the shape of handprints on either side. Once you’re seated in front of the olden-timey camera, you place your hands on the metal plates and get ready to have your aura captured. You don’t get much of a countdown to put on your best camera-ready face, but that’s all good as your expression is going to be obscured by your aura for the most part.

All you can see in my Aura photo is my big-ass grin and the vague outline of my body and head. After about two minutes, you receive a polaroid picture of your visage, which is mostly obscured by a hazy cloud of color peppered with splotches of varying shades. You then head over to the front desk and sit down opposite one of the employees who analyzes your aura and reveals some surprisingly accurate truths about you. It’s like seeing a psychic or having your tarot cards read, but you come away with an Insta-worthy photo of yourself and a sweet memento.

The woman at Magic Jewelry knows what’s up with your body before you do. My girlfriend has gone in there a handful of times, some of which have ended with the woman telling her she’s about to start her menstrual cycle.
Now my friend’s walking away thinking that’s crazy” but lo and behold, her period starts a couple of hours later. I didn’t know an aura photo could reveal physical ailments, but this aura-reading woman clocked a sports injury in my right shoulder and told me about all the tension I was carrying up there.

My aura was almost entirely red, with a few splashes of orange. The woman at the desk told me that this was because I’m incredibly passionate (true) and full of creative energy (also true – or at least it was at the time) but a red aura can also signify exhaustion or being overworked, which she nailed as I was performing at multiple stand-up comedy gigs each night and hitting the town hard afterwards.
It was the summer! The frozé was flowing – my aura was feeling it.
The readings last about 10-20 minutes, depending on how busy they are at the time. My girlfriend and I got lucky; we went in right at the end of the store’s day. The place closes around 7 PM – we got the best aura reader (the older woman – she’s the one with the sixth sense for your menstrual cycle)and a good, long, in-depth reading with no competition vying for our spots at the desk.

findjkuo blue aura triplets! 💙💙💙

That’s my recommendation – come close to closing to get your $20’s worth.

Aura photos have extended beyond the streets of Chinatown though and have made it all the way to the Whitney Museum of American Art, thanks to one Christina Lonsdale of Radiant Human.
Lonsdale took up a 10-day residency at the Whitney in 2016 and has done pop-up aura photography at various venues in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Though Lonsdale doesn’t consider herself an aura photographer, but rather a visual artist using the medium to “foster the ephemeral and make the metaphysical tangible,” and thanks to her huge cult following and strong contingent of Instagram followers, she’s photographed the likes of Emma Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Zosia Mamet among other celebrities.

Gwyneth Paltrow:

radianthuman_ 🚀BLAST FROM THE PAST 🚀 In the beginning it was just me, my camera and a handful of good friends willing to work for a free plane ticket. One of the first unexpected boosts for this project came from an invitation to the @goop office to photograph @GwynethPaltrow and team. It was such a trippy/fun email to get!! Fast forward 3 years later and I’m excited to be coming full circle to partner with them for #ingoophealth on June 10th. If you’re coming too, be sure to say HI 👋🏼
