An aura is described as a spiritual energy field that surrounds all living things, and every person’s aura looks different.

Kathryn Grace, founder an aura reading shop in Santa Monica told MindBodyGreen that “anything alive has an aura.”

Grace also explained that while it may not always be possible to see aura colours, we can usually feel them from a person’s energy and personality.

How to find your aura colour

Although there are different layers (and therefore different colours) to each person’s aura, every person tends to have one predominant aura colour.

However, your aura can change colour depending on your mood and state of mind. Auras are also contagious, which means that other people’s moods can have a serious impact on your aura.

Aura colours are visible to a small amount of people but Gerald Heard explained in his book Pain, Sex and Time that the human eye is gradually gaining the power to see these colours.

There are some quizzes online you can do to try and work out the colour of your aura, such as this one.

However, for a more accurate reading you can get your aura read by a professional.
