Aura Color Meaning...  
The aura is a signature of energy, feelings and mood.  It is a wave of vibrations, an energy field expressed in color and sound that emanates from inside and surrounds the body of a person, plant, animal etc.   

 What creates the color of an Aura?

The aura is a beacon for expressing the true feelings of mind, body and spirit.

Absolutely every living thing has an aura, a frequency that is a language all to itself.  The aura holds the truth of how you are feeling.

The light of the aura encircles a body in the shape of an egg, having a luminous misty quality,  it extends a few inches around the body.

Different areas of the body will emanate different colors, depending on how the individual is feeling or the health of the body.

Exploring The Colors of the Aura

The auric emanation is comprised of the seven distinct waves of light, like that of a rainbow.  When thinking of an aura you can think of a rainbow and all of the colors that are possible... cool lavenders, hot pinks, mellow yellows,  these descriptions act as symbols for how the colors affect us.  Cool, Hot, and Mellow are all expressions of how something makes us feel, giving these words a symbolic quality that everyone can relate to, and picture in their mind.   With the array of the 7 colors, infinite color possibilites open up to us, all coming from the seven waves of light from the visible spectrum. 

What determines the colors of someones aura?  

Your thoughts, moods and feelings determine the colors that your aura radiates.   Therefore, your aura reveals intimate details of your character, your innate nature, your mental ability, physical health or ailments, and your spiritual development.

The colors of the aura can be bright and vibrant or cloudy, this is all depending on how one feels, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  The aura will change colors as the feelings and moods change.

An optimist's aura will look vastly different than a pessimist's aura.

The seven planes and colors of the aura

Like the seven waves of color from which all color originates, there are seven planes of the aura from which all aspects of being emanate.  Like the current of an ocean these planes  undulate in constant movement flowing into and out of each other.   The aura is a dance of feeling, and the projection of a state of mind.  The planes of the aura are strikingly similar to the qualities and states of the Chakras.

The first 3 planes of the aura are the physical and emotional planes, the 4th plane is a bridge to the spiritual planes.

1.  Red - Physical - Etheric Plane
2.  Orange - Astral Plane
3.  Yellow - Lower Mental Plane
4.  Green - Higher Mental Plane
5.  Blue - Spiritual - Causal Plane
6.  Indigo - Intuitive Plane
7.  Violet-  Divine or Absolute Plane

We are sepentary beings... evolving along seven planes.  Understanding of the seven fold aura is a treasure map of the inner self, and a guide post to the development of our soul.

The definitions and aspects of the aura color meaning

Just like the 7 waves of color, and the 7 planes of the aura, there are 7 aspects to color as well.
Each color has 7 aspects to it;

1.  Supplies
2.  Vitalizes
3.  Animates
4.  Heals
5.  Inspires
6.  Enlightens
7.  Fulfills

What the colors of your aura mean to you

If colors of the aura are bright and lustrous these energies are strong, if these colors are weak or slight these energies need focused attention and spiritual work, such as meditation and tools for adjusting thought and perspective.

When blue is in harmony with red and yellow, there is a balance of peace and well being in mind, body and soul.
From this trinity of colors, the secondary colors arise;

Orange ...   red with yellow
Green...  yellow with blue
Indigo...  orange, blue, green, purple
Violet...  red and blue

And all other colors can be created from these colors.

Gemstones and crystals carry the vibration of the color rays they hold, and are excellent tools for working with the aura and energy healing. 

Aura Color Meaning & Activating the Aura

Beginning with the basics, you now know a little bit about the aura and how it works,and you can begin to engage in aura color meditations and affirmations to help you create the energies needed for specific endeavors:

We "feel action/passion" in red -   ACTIVITY
We "think, visualize" in blue -       WISDOM
We "will/ find power" in yellow -  WILL

Red, blue and yellow are the primary colors, all other colors that we can see are a combination of these three colors, I still find this to be truly amazing.   You can engage these colors in color or aura meditation, by consciously choosing to wear these colors, or by any number of ways - let your intuition guide you here to whats most effective for you.
