Aura Colors and Their Meanings

Knowledge of aura color meanings can prove to be a vital method of determining a given emotion, intellectual status, or even physical level within ourselves and t hose around us.

Although identifying auras in others is a great interpretive tool, I tend to give more weighty focus on aura-introspection. Meaning, honing in on our own personal auras...what they are emanating at any given time, what that auric meaning proposes in the grand scheme of our emotions, bodies, and lives. Further, when we pay more attention to our own auras, we can work with our inner energies and enhance or balance these subtle levels of output. Working with our auras, and augmenting certain frequencies is often referred to as aura projection.

The process of aura projection is to purposefully enhance a specific color within our aura and expressing the energy of that color outwardly, for beneficial purposes/outcomes.

Why would we want to do such a thing?

Reasons to Enhance Our Aura Colors

  • The practice of focusing and intensifying an aura color proves our inherent power to adjust and even control our environment (inner and outer).

  • Concentration on a specific color will bring about emotion, thought and actions that correspond with the energy of that color. For example, casting red energetic dye in our aura will trigger instinct, courage, action, physicality, procreation, passion and all the other properties inherent to the aura color meanings of red.

  • Projecting color properties outwardly through the aura has a phenomenal effect on our environment. Energy - even subtle energy - responds and reacts to other energy. By enveloping ourselves in a special color the energy of that color spreads and consumes everything around us. In the consumption, our life experience begins to morph according to aura-color intent.

  • One of the most astounding power-concepts of aura projection is the potential for global transitions. Time and again, I've been shown proof that there is very little (if any) limit to the influence human energy/focus/intent can have on the outside world. With intense focus, practice and repetition, our aura-boosting can create amazing results on our planet, even our galaxy. No kidding.

So which colors do we choose in order to reap the desired effect in our aura projection? Simple. We choose the color that most accurately answers our needs and meets the needs of our environment (even the people around us who may need healing/comfort). To do this, it's fair to say we need at least a guide on aura color meanings. To fit that bill, I've provided a very basic summary of aura colors and corresponding aura color meanings below. Don't stop here though, do some research on your own. Be sure you have satisfied all your loose ends and questions before you engage in aura projection. The more informed you are, the better your results within, and without. :) Also, I'm providing the basic color spectrum for explanations. You may experience other colors, or a mixture in your aura practices. If this is the case, get a clear understanding of aura color meanings your experiencing.

Aura Color Meanings

aura color meaning of red Red: Red stimulates the roots of our desires and passions. It can be an incredibly bolstering color too. Red will invigorate and boost our bodies into action. Use red in aura color projection when you need to screw your courage to the sticking place. When you need confidence, physical strength...when you need to feel power, or if you need to reconnect with your survival instincts. A subdued, less intense red in your aura will also enhance your romantic relations.


aura color meaning of orange Orange: Emit soft waves of orange throughout your aura when you want a boost of creative inspiration and energy. Orange is the embodiment of warmth, inclusion, clarity, creativity and rejuvenation. Focusing on the color orange during aura projection practices will give you a radiating quality - much like the sun radiates energy. If you're feeling puckish, bored or uninspired, orange is the perfect color to turn your doldrums into enthusiasm.


aura color meanings of yellow Yellow: Yellow is a set-point for divine light, and when we infuse our auras with this color we are raising our energetic vibrations to angelic levels. This is the color to choose if you've been consumed with distractions, confusions, or distorted perceptions. Why? Because yellow is the prime root of clarity. Yellow will help you re-focus, sharpen your intellect, clarify your perception and get truthful insight into whatever kind of mysteries you've been dealing with.


aura color meaning of green Green: See streams of vital green flowing out from your aura when you are in need of rebirth, renewal and healing. Green is the universal color of growth and rejuvenation. Just take a look at your outer landscape during the spring and summer months. The cacophony of green in Nature is a testimony to abundance and healthy evolution. Green can also stimulate your financial energies too. Project green in your aura for health, wealth and natural protection.


aura color meaning of blue Blue: Blue will tranquilize you into calmer levels of being. When you're all in knots and unable to relax, sit quietly and imagine soft layers of blue wafting beautifully through your aura. Intensify the color blue according to your impulse. Blue enhances psychic ability, helps with dream interpretation, stimulates intuition so if you are wanting to augment these facets of your understanding, project soft blue energies from your aura. Blue will also help sooth tempestuous emotions as it has a lovely calming effect.


aura color meaning of indigo Indigo: Indigo is to be used with reverence during deep periods of reflection and contemplation. When we need to dive deeply into our inner selves and pierce the soul for intense knowing, indigo will protect us with its magic during these spirit journeys. It's a color if incalculable depth. We can submerge our spirits and walk the etheric worlds and our indigo aura will protect our bodies while astral traveling.


aura color meanings of violet Violet: You just can't go wrong when projecting violet in your aura. It's similar to yellow in that the color embodies angelic energies. Violet expresses childlike love, innocence, purity, and a sweet kindness that is equivalent to unconditional divine love. Soak yourself in violet radiance and see your aura scintillate with the gentle cleansing properties of this color. Projecting violet in your aura will grant you contentment as well as attract tenderness into your life.
