What Makes Our Aura Different Colors?

The color of our aura depends on the energy we are emitting. The shade you see in an aura can be interpreted as what that person’s current emotional and physical state is in that time of their lives.

For example:
An orange aura indicates self-control, ambition and courage. A blue aura shows communication, sensitivity, loyalty, and a yellow aura imply that the person feels optimistic and happy.

This doesn’t mean that a person emitting a yellow aura is immune to feeling sadness or moments of depression, just that these feelings will not last long enough for them to affect their dominant state of mind.

By becoming mindful of current emotional states, we can use meditation or other personal practices to change our active color to one that would be more beneficial to our spiritual and emotional wellbeing.

Red Aura Personality Traits

This type of personality isn’t afraid to speak out against injustice or even take action if necessary. People with red auras often have a natural ability to lead because they don’t hold back when speaking truthfully.

However, red is a passionate and intense energy that causes people to become highly involved in their work or projects, sometimes to the point that they may become unhealthy, causing burnout and emotional attachment to a job or situation.

Fiery red aura

Understanding Aura Shades of Red

The red color spectrum can be interpreted in different ways, depending on the shade and what it’s believed to represent. Below are the most common variety of red auras and their meanings.

Murky Red Aura

Meditating on a red aura

Bright Red Aura

Bright red indicates a more intense energy. A bright red aura has a stronger sense of purpose and direction.

It may indicate a need for attention and stimulation. People with a bright red aura tend to be highly energetic, enthusiastic and charismatic people. They like being busy and enjoy challenges.

They are usually good leaders because they know where they want to go and why.

Dark Red Aura

A person who has a dark red aura tends to feel very strongly about things like money, power, status, and control. These individuals tend to get angry quickly when these issues come into play because they’re so attached to what they’ve worked for.

They also often struggle with relationships due to their inability to let go of past hurts and disappointments. This causes them to become jealous and possessive over others’ feelings and actions.

Deep red is usually associated with a lack of self-control. People with a deep red aura tend to hold onto their feelings for days, if not weeks. They may even lash out verbally without thinking first.

Root chakra

Red Aura and the Root Chakra

A red aura is connected to the root chakra , the first chakra in your subtle body. Located at your perineum, it is also known as your foundation chakra, and its energy holds you solidly in the physical world.

When the root chakra, also known as the Muladhara, is clear of blockage, you will feel grounded and stable in your body. If this chakra is out of balance, it can affect your physical health and lower your immune system.

A grounding meditation or a chakra meditation can be used to balance your root chakra and return the correct flow of energy that may have been blocked
