How My Aura Turned Golden


How my aura turned golden and how yours can too

Ever heard of golden auras? ever seen one? are you sure? They do look kinda those depicted in the paintings of the middle age. Depending on the person the golden color may be just on the 7th chakra, the 6th... or all of them.

In this lens you will not only find out what made my aura turn golden and what you can do but, also, you will see the effect of my mantra in my aura and even HEAR the vibrational sound of a golden aura.

Knowing there are millions of us looking for ways to become better persons I decided to share what has worked for me. I wish to somehow return the kindness of all the authors I have read who have shared their own experience. After reading you -those authors- it is my turn to write.

In this lens I will talk about one of the most impresive epiphanies I have had and will tell you how I got there and how you, and everyone, can too.

Enjoy the reading!

The Key to the color of your Aura

Once again it is confirmed: Attitude is everything.

In Psychic fairs, with Reiki practitioners or with touring psychics, have you ever had a picture of your aura taken?

The Beginning

Sowing the seed

I had heard about the Kirlian photography since I was a little girl, in the 70's. My grandfather was a doctor -surgeon- so he had all sorts of very interesting and informative books. Was it in one of his books or was is in the MD magazine? I don't recall exactly were but I had the chance to run into the picture we all have seen by now, the leaf with half of it´s physical form torn off and still displaying the whole leaf in the Kirlian photography. I had seen the pictures of the tips of fingers radiating light around them. I found it fascinating. Still alien and far away from my world back then.

As I grew up my interest in the "weird" topics increased. I was spending most of my allowance buying books: How to Astral Project, The 3rd Eye, The Bridge Across Forever, Jonathan Livingstone Seagul, Stranger to the Ground and so many more. Richard Bach became of my favorite authors.

Eventually I joined an organization that promoted meditation. I became a vegetarian when I was 19 and started my meditation path. Little did I know back then that that step was going to take my life into a journey around the world.

I had halted my International Relations studies due to some life complications and when God/The Universe presented me with the opportunity to turn my life in any direction I wanted -including returning to University- I chose to go to India.

Learn what life in ashrams is really like and what strange secrets you could find.

A scientific book that disects auras - You will love it!

Infinite Mind has so much information. Dr. Valerie Hunt has done an amazing job when it comes to the human electromagnetic fields. If you want to understand what auras are, more in detail and seen through the mind a of scientist I highly recommend this book. You shall see: you will find yourself recommending this book too.

Understand auras. A great book by a scientist that works with Auras

The end of the spiritual journey. Learn what it's like and what you can expect after it.

Where was I? - Oh yes, ready to go to India.



Long story short -that is, 4 years in a few lines:

I spent one and a half years in India meditating, studying, learning, asking questions, meditating, meeting new people, meditating... did I mention meditating? I loved it, and still do although I no longer meditate as much as back then. Now I need a fulltime job.

It was an amazing time. I lived in several Ashrams and I was really immersed in spiritual learning and spiritual life. How I cherish those years!

Upon my return I continued to volunteer for the organization. I had the opportunity to translate a lot of books, which gave me access to more and more knowledge. About 8 months before I went to India for the 2nd time The Universe/God had an important lesson prepared for me.

The Universe/God "set" me up. - The Universe/God is mischievious!



One day I was heading to an esotheric bookstore. One of my favourites ones. There was a poster on the wall advertising the opportuntiy to get a picture of the aura taken.

Scroll to Continue

I was in awe. Suddenly, the flashback of those days at my grandfather's library reading the books about Kirlian photography.

Curiosity overtook me. While I was in India my progress was phenomenal. The experiences I had during meditation surpassed my expectations. I had already experienced so much. My connection to God/The Universe had become so strong and so clear. Answers would come to me to questions I had not even bothered asking. Epiphanies, unexpected gifts, joy and so much certainty about the Creation. I was living in Heaven on Earth. And it showed. People would constantly comment on my progress, on my demeanor. I was told, on two occations, that the Guru had mentioned that I was progressing very fast. I was very glad about it all. Of course, nobody is exempt from ego. And I was no exception.

When I saw the chance to see, with my physical eyes, what my aura looked like I wasted no time and booked my appointment.

The expected date came and I was nervous. I didn't know what to expect. I entered the hall at the Sheraton hotel and I sat on the chair. There was someone having their picture taken.

I kept my dialogue with God thanking him for the opportunity. I was excited too, but nervous never-the-less.

Finally a short smiley man came to get me. After the introductory chit chat he instructed me to sit on the chair and place my hands with the palms on the metal plates and to look at the camera. He would let me know when he was ready to press the button.

While I sat there with my palms on the plates so many things were going through my head. I thought that since I had got so much praise about my spiritual development I surely should be able to get my aura golden. I knew, though, that the aura changes color depending on our thoughts and mood and wondered what the best way to "turn" it gold would be.

My meditations had given me great results so I thought I would do what I did during meditation. To repeat my mantra mentally. I started repeating it at the same time as continue to thank God for the opportunity... and the photo was taken.

Not quite Golden - First Attempt. Ready, get set go!



To my disappointment my aura was not golden. The 7th chakra, though, was. And to my unimagined surprise the protective energy of my mental mantra projected as white energy (for some reason in the picture on this lens it shows kinda pinkish). The psychic -by now I realized the photographer and event organizer was psychic- told me that the golden in the 7th chakra meant that I was in communication with God. That he got right. He said it was as if I lived in in a mountan and I could tell what would happen in the village at the valley below. This explanation I liked.

He also mentioned that the white around my third eye was protection. Indeed one of the uses of my mantra.

So after an explanation of about 30 mins about the colors of my aura I thanked him and left. On my way home I was kinda dismayed at what had happen. It was a fantastic blow to my ego! So my ego was confused: How come if I was supposed to have been doing so well in meditation, and everyone could notice a strong change in my and even the Guru was praising me my aura was not golden?!

Food for thought. And thinking I did a lot of.

I was the first member of my family to have one of this pictures taken so soon my uncle got interested and him and my aunt went to have theirs taken. Upon his return he told me the psychic was going to give a chakra cleaning workshop and that he would love to attend but he couldn´t. He then asked me if it would be ok with me if he paid for the workshop I would attend and then would teach him what we learned. I loved the idea and so I agreed.

The workshop started and after a brief introduction we were told that in order to see the results of the chakra cleaning and healing seminar we would all have our aura pictures taken before we started with the techniques and then after the workshop ended. So we all lined up to have our picture taken.

I was even more nervous than the first time. I was actually concerned about the colors I would project at that time since nothing really spectacular resulted from the first time I gave my best to get a golden aura. I was aware of my reputation of being short tempered, whimsical and spoiled, although I didn´t agree with those opinions. Deep within me, as I´m sure it happens to all of us, I was aware of my dark side and was afraid it would come to be known by "everyone" in that workshop through the next picture of my aura. I was really concerned about it and wasn´t sure what to do about it. I feared public embarrassment!

My turn was approaching. I was so concerned. I was trying to get an answer from The Universe/God but I guess I was so deep in worries that I could not open up to an answer. Finally my turned arrived. I sat on the chair freaking out. And as I slowly placed my palms on the metal plates I told God/The Universe: " Let it be as You wish. If I have a horrible and disgusting black aura and everyone will find out about it, let it be. Let it be whatever You want". And after a big sigh I let go.

BINGO! - Magic happens when we surrender.



This time the unbelievable happened. I got a golden aura! I could not believe my eyes, neither could the psychic or anyone else around for that matter. By the way, for some reason the colors on this website are very bright and my aura looks a lot darker than in the original picture. The picture of my golden aura is the first one on this lense. In order to save space I won't publish it here again.

I was flabbergasted and, one more time, confused. I could not understand how that had happened. It took me a while to digest the events of that morning.

The workshop followed its course that day. Then the following day was coming to an end. Time to take the next picture. As I approached the chair I had no concerns whatsoever $6. I was at so much peace with my self, with God/The Universe, I couldn´t care less what color my aura was this time. I had already gotten what I wanted plus an enormous epiphany: Magic happens when we leave everything in the hands of God/The Universe.

With that attitude of peace and trust I got the picture above.


Energy in the Aura.

Subsequent experiments

And there was I was. With three wonderful pics of my aura. You know when you are dying to get something and can't get it for quite a while and all of a sudden you get too much of it? Well, I had two more opportunities to get my pics taken. All within a very short time period. The following time my ego had taken over. My picture doesn´t even project any energy on my 7th chakra. After seeing this I -or my ego rather- got mad and decided to try again the power of my mantra. It is undeniable, the protective energy of a mantra is always there. You can see both these pics in my photo galery below.

The End of my Story.

So how can you too get your golden aura? By accepting whatever comes and leaving the results in the hands of God. I strongly suggest you get in the mood you get in when you pray. Remember that feeling of becoming serious about things and humbly start talking to God? On that same mood and ready to accept what comes approach those metal plates.

Do you have a mantra? or a favourite prayer you recite? You may try saying in your mind to project the protective energy around your third eye.

What ever it is you decide to try it would be nice to hear from you and the results you got.

May we all continue to evolve in love and in God.

So how can I get my aura to turn golden?

So how can you too get your golden aura? By being ready to accept whatever comes and leaving the results in the hands of God. I strongly suggest you get in the mood you get in when you pray.... and when your finish praying. You let go and trust. Remember the feeling of becoming serious about things and humbly start talking to God? On that same mood and ready to accept what comes approach those metal plates. Trust... and let me know how it goes!

Biofeedback photography, how accurate is it?

Some are saying that the popular aura pictures are not how the real aura looks. Some claim that it is just like an X-ray, what you see are not your bones, but it is the best way to look at them... without disecting you that is.

The same happens with aura pictures, they are the best representation of your aura.

The sound of an Aura. You have read about it, you have seen it, do you want to hear it too?

The first 40 seconds are about the sound of two different frequencies, two different colors. There is also interesting information and footage of the energy field taken with a different equipment. Different from that used to see the colors more clearly.

You will be surprised when you hear what an aura sounds like!!

PS I just noticed the video didn't load. You can watch it here.

For those of you new to Auras

God study your knowledge about our own aura interesting when we see in our own experience.

Interesting, I never heard of this in real life even though I am from India. I was aware of the aura mentioned in stories only!

I have a gold aura, and many people with the genuine ability to see auras have commented on it. I do not believe there is any formula for obtaining a gold aura, and not all people can simply "get one". I've only met two other people who have gold auras like I do, and the things we all had in common were: highly spirituality personalities and practices, openness to the universe/god-goddness/divine (whatever you want to call it), and all had some kind of latent psychic ability. We also have all had lives filled with unusual adversity, which is probably what made us turn inward and toward spirituality in the first place.

People who achieve full kundalini can have a gold aura, and this route will take a lot of meditation, heart-centred practices, and a focus on clearing and opening the different chakras of the body. Working with nature (paganism) and plants can help with this too. The heart centre is KEY to this whole process. If you can open the heart then the energy will rise up, your crown will meet with cosmic energy, and it will flow in to make gold. Gold simply means you are connected to Source energy.

I don't claim to be enlightened, but I do claim to be high vibration, and there are many paths to Rome. There is no magic formula to get there. I never went to India, never lived in ashrams or monasteries. Most of my adult life has been spent in post-secondary education, with some travelling interspersed. You don't have to spend thousands of dollars taking workshops or going places to achieve this. All you need to do is let go of whatever is holding you down, and ask the universe to expand your consciousness in the way that is appropriate to you, and open your heart receiving the gifts born from your request. Then your journey will be underway.

People with gold auras are rare. IMO if you don't already have some gold happening in your aura (which means the latent connection is there), then you're going to have to work hard for it. My personal view - though I can't confirm it - is that people with gold auras are old or advanced souls who are here to uplift humanity. They arrived that way.

Hey nice lens? are those pictures?

P.S. Do drop by my lenses sometime and please do let me know how do you feel about them.

Maria-Zuzeena (author) on October 26, 2011:

@aesta1: You should try it! To see that seemingly frail field of energy around you makes you start seeing things in a different way. Beautiful!

Maria-Zuzeena (author) on October 24, 2011:

@anonymous: Certainly!! First of all, although I have heard of "black" auras I have never really run into someone with this myself. Having said that we all have an electromagnetic field. Now, the lady you met might have just been after your money so I wouldn't pay too much attention to what she said. I believe that, unfortunately, her words might have played an important part in your, subconsciously, taking yourself to the situation where you are at now. First of all realize that God is there to help everyone. Second be aware that you DO have an electromagnetic field. Negative thoughts DO cast shadows in our field in the same way as trust casts light. Trust and action, that is. Get yourself together. Elaborate a plan and be certain that the light of the universe responds to positive intentions. It can also happen that you may be paying a karma from the past, but regardless, in the NOW lies our right to create our future. In the NOW and in our hands. Make a plan and start working towards executing it.

Hi... I stopped by the mall a few years ago and I saw a lady reading palms. I normally didn't snuggle with this part of my life but was just curious. She begin to tell me that my aura light was out and if i paid her 200 she could light a candle for me. She told me a few other things but i wasn't about to give her my money. Since then I have lost my home car and can't find a good job. Last night I thought about that lady and prayed that my light be restored and if i see her again i would give her whatever i had in my pocket. Is there any advice other that my lack of rest you can give me to correct this issue?

A friend told me about this but I have not done this. Am happy for you.

Great lens, anxious to do some testing and see how my aura turns out. Thanks for the page!

Maria-Zuzeena (author) on January 06, 2011:

@toprunningtips: Hi Toprunningtips. A red aura does not necessarily mean imbalance, unless of course, you had someone read it and interpreted it that way. Red also means a lot of physical vitality. But yes, if you have been working on your spiritual growth chances are it will photograph differently next time. Let me know the results when you get a new chance to check out your aura. :)

toprunningtips on January 04, 2011:

This is so very interesting! I had a picture taken of my aura many years ago - I've since lost it when moving but I do remember it showing how unbalanced my aura was because it was all red with a little orange. I guess I was a very angry soul then!

I'm sure if I had a picture now it would look quite different than before because playing a proactive part in my spiritual growth is part of my daily life now - back then it wasn't. After reading your lens I think I will make an effort to get it done.

Thank you!

Maria-Zuzeena (author) on December 31, 2010:

Very intriguing lens. I will be eager to see future lenses from you.
