What is an Aura?

Our human body is made up of millions of cells. Each cell vibrates at a slow rate and gives off energy. Surrounding our physical body is another lighter, finer body of energy that vibrates at a higher rate than our cells. This energy field is called our Aura. Simply put, the Aura is to our physical body what the atmosphere is to Earth.

The Aura is a field of energy or light that surrounds every physical body on the planet. Auras are different colors and each person has one. The color of your aura tells a lot about your health, both mental and physical. Your aura may also reflect your spiritual condition and can change anytime.

If you are one of the light red auras, it means you are full of vitality and have plenty of energy to take on new projects. You are also likely to be passionate and compassionate. Bright red auras tend to be fair and just people with positive energy towards others.

Brown-Red Aura Or Murky Red Aura

If your aura is darker, it can mean that you are more negative than positive.

This could be because of pent-up anger or trauma.

Darker Red auras also tend more to:

  • violence
  • anger

A brown-red aura may indicate that a person is grounded and has their feet planted firmly on the ground. They are often very successful and ambitious. They may also have a tendency to be quite analytical.

If you find any of these aspects accurate, try to focus more on being honest and accepting of yourself. All emotions are ok and have their purpose. Accepting them and getting them room, instead of shoving them away, can make a major difference in your life. Try to be proud of expressing your sensitivity and imagination.
