A purple or violet aura indicates a combination of gentleness, peace, and wisdom that colors a person’s life.

People with this coloured aura are usually calm, allowing them to exercise equanimity in their life. They care about everything that goes on around them and feel their purpose is to make this world better for those who live in it.

The color violet is connected to the crown chakra, which symbolises a person that focuses on spiritual matters and is in tune with one’s higher self.

What Makes Our Aura Turn Purple?

Our aura color can change day to day depending on our current mood or feeling. That being said, we all have prominent colours that represent our overall emotional and physical well-being.

People develop a purple aura by focusing on their personal growth and expanding their spiritual wellness through deep contemplation and spiritual practices.

If you have a spiritual approach to life where you practice being mindful of your thoughts and feelings and spend plenty of time in nature, you’re likely to generate purple within your aura.

Purple Aura Personality

As natural empaths, purples find it very easy to relate and understand another person’s perspective. This often results in them going out of their way to help people as well as having an overall passion for protecting the environment, animals and their fellow humans from harm.

Like indigo’s, a purple can have intuitive gifts, almost to the point where they can be mistaken as supernatural psychic ability. Whether this is true or not, their contemplative nature tends to lead them to make decisions based on intuition instead of rational thinking.

With this level of spiritual energy, purples often find themselves working as healers, therapists, teachers, psychologists or spiritual guides of some sort.

Spiritual Meaning of a Purple Aura

A purple/ violet aura is an indication that a person is seeking to expand their spirituality and grow in spiritual awareness.

These individuals often find themselves drawn to exploring different facets of spirituality such as mythology, astrology and Tarot.

They may also be drawn to meditation and yoga, usually focusing on expanding their consciousness through different meditative practices.

The color purple is unique in that its the only colour to be seen both in the visible spectrum and in the infrared spectrum. Reflecting this, it’s said that purple aura people are equally connected to the physical realm and astral plane.

Understanding Purple Aura Shades

Auras come in different shades of color, and each shade is associated with different spiritual, emotional, or physical characteristics. The lighter the shade, the more positive energy it holds. Darker shades hold negative energy.

Violet Aura

Violet is the purest and highest form of purple aura. It shows a balance between mind, body, and spirit. Contemplative and intuitive, the violet aura person is very creative and genuinely in tune with their emotions.

Violet auras are common in those who meditate or practice yoga, as they honour their body and mind by keeping them healthy. Many of these individuals have a highly developed intuition that comes from an inner connection with their higher self.

Lavender Aura

A light purple/ lavender aura is an indication of a highly imagantive and creative person. These dreamy individuals are often drawn to creative hobbies such as painting, dancing, writing or making music.

Lavender is generally viewed as a cheery color, and although these people may sometimes seem distant due to their endless daydreaming and active imagination, they live rich enjoyable lives.

Dark Purple Aura

A dark purple aura is an indication of struggle within your spiritual journey. In some cases, this is a sign that you are in a difficult situation. In others, it indicates that you have made a decision in your life that is out of alignment with your soul’s true desires.

Take some time to reflect on your life, and ask yourself whether you are making decisions that feel right because they bring instant gratification or
or whether you are making decisions that align with your inner truth.

Purple Aura Chakra

Our aura colours are paired with specific chakras within the seven chakra system. A purple aura is represented by the crown chakra, also know as the ‘ Sahasrara’ and is the highest chakra.

Located at the top of the head the crown chakra is considered the meeting point between individual consciousness and universal consciousness.

A blockage in the crown chakra is a sign that we need to reconnect with our true purpose and embrace our higher selves.
