What is the Aura?

The aura is an invisible energetic field that surrounds our physical bodies.  When you break down all matter on the physical realm, you ultimately land on energy being the source holding everything together.  The aura is round in nature or even egg shaped depending on the individual, this can also depend on if they are standing or sitting. 

The aura can change colors throughout the day, the week, or even within minutes. Although some people do regularly stay within certain colors, and hardly change. Just how we are all unique and different, so are our auras!  Oftentimes we have more than one color with our aura field, but usually there is a dominant color that stands out the most.

These individuals, need time and space to themselves to recuperate. When they are at their peak they are incredibly playful, spontaneous, and have a take charge attitude.

Careers that may suite you, dancer, race car driver, sports player, adult content, etc. Though with that being said, some times this aura is something that you are shifting through, and it is commonly seen in people who are in the early stages of a relationship, just went to the gym, had a child, or went dancing. Depending on how much this resonates to you is a great indication if this is more of a true staple in your energy, or a current phase.

Crimson Aura: People with these auras tend to be grounded in their passions, they know what they want out of life, and they know how to be steadfast in their navigation to those desires. With that being said, to everyone on the outside these individuals come off as strong warrior types. People who can push through anything and seem to almost take on the world around them. This color is very commonly seen in native Americans, and those who are native to Hawaii, this is because they have stayed in touch with Mother Nature longer than most cultures. This aura color is often very rare, and if it is a staple (long term color) for you, then you are a very powerful soul. You most likely incarnated to shake it up, and to help many of us all see things from a different perspective. This color also relates to Aries the greek god of war.  Many vikings had crimson to dark cherry auras. People often with this color have thicker palms. Careers for this shade of red...  hunting, fishing, being a nature guide, body builder/personal trainer, any thing involving working with animals like a horse trainer, cattle rancher, etc... also some tattoo artists have this shade of red.

Dark Cherry Red: Individuals with dark cherry red are very similar to the above group, and may benefit from reading about the crimson aura. The dark cherry red aura individual, like all red aura's find themselves to be passionate about what they desire, and most likely has a step by step plan of how to get there. Individuals with this particular aura are intuitive, and at times a bit cunning, they are able to maneuver in their realities based off of the subtle signs that those around them give off. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, unless they choose to use it as such.  These individuals are smooth when making moves towards their goals, and yet calculated, they do it with ease. There is something almost mysterious, and maybe even a bit witchy about these particular individuals. Careers for these people can be a bit hard to peg down, but they can be CEO's, a boss of any sort really... regardless of what they do for work, they will find comfort and money with great ease, ultimately that's what matters most for these individuals when it comes to work.

Purple/Red Aura: This combination often means the individuals with this aura are VERY intense, they tend to have a spiritual warrior vibe to them. They are in touch with the higher realms of energy and consciousness of the crown chakra, with the grounded energy of the root chakra. These individuals come off as unshakable, and powerful. It can be a rare combination, but these individuals came here to really spread wisdom through their actions.  Careers for people with this aura tend to be shamans, healers, leaders in general, witches, and mothers.

Orange/Red Aura: A orange/red aura can indicate that you are running your emotions or relationships a little too hard.  You might be feeling some level of emotional fatigue, and you are in need of a break. If you often find it difficult to give yourself time off, then it is recommended to sit down and journal anything and everything that you are experiencing, no judgment just write! This will allow you to clear your energy out, from there it is important to come up with a schedule that allows you to take down time every day. Taking time off is incredibly important, when burnt orange is seen it is often a sign of stress and fatigue.

Black/Red Aura: When ever black or brown is seen in an aura it usually indicates a blockage or trauma that is in the aura/chakra. In this case it would be a root chakra related blockage. This can correlate to physical attacks that happened to you in your life time that need to be healed, being bullied, or even something like a car crash. The root chakra deals with feeling safe, it also rules the sexual glands. With any blockage here I suggest meditation on what this could be, and then taking the time to sit down and journal, allow yourself to acknowledge the pain. Then turn inwards and give yourself all the love and affection you know you deserve. Self love and building patterns that give you more stability and avoiding situations that don't are the number one way to heal this chakra.


Red Aura People in Relationships...

Red aura individuals in relationships can be intense, they often "need" a partner that can keep up, but yet offers stability. If the partner over steps they can find the wrathful side of the individual with the red aura, not that people with this aura lash out very often but when they do, it's fiery! Red aura individuals would do best with someone calm, and almost a bit predictable, but nurturing.  With out that, then people with red auras are likely to court individuals even more wild than themselves, this can result in serial dating, and even self destructive behavior if not careful.

If you have a red aura, you may find that your early years are spent dating many different people, and that satisfaction can be hard to find. You often are looking for a candle that burns brighter then your own, and though that is possible to find, these relationships can be a bit volatile unless there is an allowance for freedom of self expression and perhaps even a polyamorous relationship style. With that being said, it is very important for you to know your limits and your emotional triggers when making a decision to stay with someone long term. When you do find the right partner, your light will be bright enough to make the whole relationship enjoyable for you and your partner.
