Aura Color Meanings: How to See and Cleanse Your Aura

Table of Contents


Protective auras, or auras, are invisible energy fields that surround all living beings. An aura is made up of many different colors and vibrations that represent different aspects of a person's true, felt, thought, and hoped-for selves. 

Learning how to see your aura for the first time might be an unnerving experience if you've never done it. However, in this post, I will teach you how to view your own aura, the aura color meanings, and how to cleanse your own aura.  

What is an Aura?

A spiritual energy field, or aura, is said to envelop the bodies of all living beings. An individual's state of mind, heart, and soul can all be inferred from the unique combination of colors and patterns of an aura. A person's aura, according to popular belief, is a window into their soul or life force. 

A person's aura is a mirror of their energy, and as such can be used to ascertain their state of health and their motivations for taking particular actions. Some believe that a person's aura acts as a shield against psychic attacks and can have a positive or negative vibration.

One's mental, physical, and spiritual health can all be gleaned by looking at someone’s aura. A healthy person's aura exudes a color of comfort and warmth, while a sick person's aura has a cold, distant quality. A person's aura contains information about their character and spiritual development. 

Breaks or tears in your aura can manifest as illness in the body, mind, or spirit. 

An aura is affected by your physical environment, your mental state, and even the food you eat. As a person grows older and their circumstances change, so do the things that are most important to them. Negativity, stress, toxic people, and even caffeine can have a negative effect on a person's aura. A meditative practice is one of the best ways to keep your aura cleansed and pure.

Different Aura Color Meanings

A person's aura's color, intensity, and saturation can all have different meanings depending on the circumstances. Aura manifestations are usually one of seven colors, but an aura can be any color on the light spectrum. 

These are 7 common aura colors and what each color represents:


A red aura meaning (especially a fiery shade of red), is often associated with passion, strength, and vitality. On the other hand, it can mean anger, rage, or a threat of bodily harm. 

An orange aura meaning is associated with vitality, enthusiasm, and creativity. Being too optimistic or overly cautious is another possible interpretation.

A yellow aura meaning is linked to brainpower and vitality because of its association with sunshine. This can also be negative and represent someone who thinks too much.

A green aura meaning is associated with nature and a need for balance. Negativities of this color include possessiveness and jealousy.

A blue aura meaning is associated with desirable qualities such as intelligence, dependability, and serenity. However, it can lead to depression or melancholy.

An indigo aura meaning is linked to psychic abilities like intuition and empathy. If the aura is not clear, it can imply the person has apprehension or mistrust.

A purple aura meaning has been connected to spiritual development, enlightenment, and metamorphosis. It can also be linked to someone who is too focused in fantasy and not focused on their earthly duties. 

A white aura is likened to the purity of fresh snow or the tranquil moonlight, symbolizing innocence, spiritual advancement, and healing. This hue is linked to individuals radiating balance and harmony, often drawn towards roles of nurturing and guidance. A white aura signifies limitless potential and openness to life's vibrant experiences.

Different colors in an aura have different meanings depending on their saturation, brightness, and hue. The intensity of one's blue aura may be interpreted as a reflection of their level of intuition and spirituality, but a muted blue aura may be read as an indication of depression.

How to see your own Aura!

It is easy to see your own aura. 


1. The first thing to do is concentrate on your breathing and take deep breaths. Deep breathing and a willingness to let go of distractions and get into a meditative state are essential for being fully present in the moment. 

  • Once you are in a relaxed state, begin to visualize and sense the energy around you. You can start with your hands, feeling any sensations such as warmth, tingling, or pressure. Then move up your body, sensing any changes in the energy around you. You may be able to see a hazy outline of color and light around yourself. 

2. Another way to see your own aura is to use a reflective surface, such as a mirror or a bowl of still water. Gaze into the reflection and relax your eyes. You may start to see a colorful mist or halo around your head and body. This is your aura.

3. A third way to see your aura (and the only way I can do it) is by putting your palm on a sheet of white paper.

  • Then, stare at your hand, and go into peripheral vision. Peripheral vision happens when you are looking at something but can see the objects on the left and right sides of your head. 
  • Once you are in peripheral vision, look back at your hand. You will notice a color outlining each finger. 
  • The color surrounding your fingers and hand will look electric, like one of those light sabers from Star Wars. 
  • My aura is almost ALWAYS a bright light, clear blue. I have seen myself with a purple aura when I am actively connected to the Universe. 
  • A white aura is next to impossible to have and only occurs for enlightened beings. 

The white color would represent a complete opening of the crown chakra and the person would have relinquished all attachment to the world and embody altruism, compassion, and love at all times. Every time I see my aura it gives me goosebumps because it reminds me that we are just energy beings and each of us has a purpose for this life.

Cleansing Your Energy Field (Aura)

Maintaining a clean aura is essential if you wish to maintain optimal physical, mental, and spiritual health and remain connected to your intuition and universe. There are many ways to cleanse your aura, depending on what works best for you.

1. A daily meditation ritual is one of the best ways to ensure a cleansed aura. Daily deep breathing exercises are simple yet highly effective for purifying your aura. Close your eyes and imagine being devoured by a blinding white or golden light. 

  • Visualize a beam of light entering from the top of your head (crown chakra) then down your spine and dispelling any darkness or negativity. 
  • You can also take a cold shower and imagine the negativity washing off of you like a grey residue going down the drain. 

2. Another way to keep your aura pure is by removing caffeine and limiting animal products

  • Some people believe that when you eat the meat of another being, you absorb the suffering energy of the animal and it becomes a part of your energy. Removing meat from the diet also unblocks your chakras. I heard someone say recently "if the Western world became vegetarian, their chakras would unblock so quickly that the world would turn into complete chaos".

3. Finally, the age-old practice of using crystals to cleanse one's aura is widely held to be effective at removing negative energy from your aura

  • The fact that many people share this view lends credence to it. A person's energy field, or aura, can be cleansed and purified by placing crystals around the body or on top of it and allowing the crystal’s energy to flow into the aura.

No matter which method you choose, cleansing your aura is important and should be done regularly in order to keep yourself in mentally, physically, and spiritually healthy- and in tuned with the universe!
