It is super easy to see your own aura, and understand the meaning of its color, by following these four simple steps, and referring to the color chart of traits and meanings.


Ever wonder how to see your aura? Curious about what color it is? Perhaps a peaceful blue, or fiery orange!

The color of your aura can give you major insight into your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

And by using the simple exercise in this article, you can easily see the first layer of your aura in just a few minutes.

Have You Ever Sensed an Aura?

Have you ever felt an immediate sense of joy or anxiety when someone walked into a room? Or, picked up on someone's depression or anger without them speaking a word?


That was you sensing their aura!

You may not have seen their aura with your physical eyes, but you felt their energy. Pretty cool, right?

And when you know what to look for and how to do it, you can learn how to see your aura, too!

The best part is that you don't have to be psychic to do this; it's something everyone can learn. All it takes is an open mind and willingness to practice.

So, let's look at your aura!

How to See Your Aura

The following exercise is not only easy, it's also one of the best ways to see your aura.

With a little practice, you'll be well on your way to seeing what color your energy is!

Before You Begin:

  • Choose your favorite time of day. Some people like to wait until the dusky light of evening when it's just getting dark. Others practice seeing their aura in the daylight. I recommend you try different options to see what works best for you.
  • Relax. It will be easier to see your aura if you are relaxed. So, light some candles, put on some soft background music, or meditate before you begin. This will help clear your mind.

Relaxed? Great, let's start the aura exercise.

Step 1:

Start by gently rubbing your fingers together. As you do, take relaxing breaths and focus on your fingers.

Keep rubbing your fingers together until they feel 'sticky'. It might feel like one of your fingers is stuck to the other, or you may have the sensation that two of your fingers are now one.

Step 2:

Slowly pull your fingers apart so that there's a small amount of space (about 1 cm) between them.

As you do, keep focusing on the area between your fingers, and take notice of any color or 'fog.' This is your aura, yay!

(Don't worry how faint the color is. Your ability will get stronger with practice.)

Now that you've gotten a glimpse of your aura color, it's time to learn what it means.


The Meaning of Your Aura Color

Aura ColorMeaning


This rare color shows a high level of spirituality and intuitive ability. You tend to have a calm, Zen-like energy that others find extremely comforting.


A black aura means that you are struggling with feelings of depression, or are holding on to anger or resentment.


You are sensitive, introverted, loving, and value relationships with family and friends above all else. You hold admirable traits, such as strength and wisdom. A lighter blue aura indicates peace and tranquility, while deep blue shows a strong personality. Turquoise in your aura may be residual energy from a past trauma, while indigo indicates psychic ability.


Bright shades of green in your aura indicate that you are grounded, and feeling well emotionally. You are confident, and highly value home and family. Muddy green hues can mean that you are not feeling emotionally well, and may feel misunderstood, angry, or are struggling with a recent change.


An orange aura means you have vigorous energy, love life, and welcome positive change. You are not one to sit on the sidelines and let life pass you by... Instead, you constantly seek personal growth and enlightenment. And, you have the creative mind to put even the most unique plans into action, and achieve success!


A pink aura shows that you are a loving and caring person with energy that is light and joyful. Light pink can indicate a high level of spirituality, while deeper shades of pink can mean that you are in love.


A purple aura (especially a deep shade of purple), indicates that you are highly psychic. Your other noteworthy traits include passion, a vivid imagination, and astounding creativity!


Red in your aura means that you are passionate, and indicates an open sacral chakra. Bright red shows a bold and confident personality with a zest for life (you may also have a love of sports!). On the flip side, dark or 'muddy' shades of red show that you need to seek more joy in your life, or heal from a past trauma.


Having yellow in your aura means that you are feeling happy and content... Some may even call you an eternal optimist! Though you are lighthearted, you are also very intelligent, and have a knack for being able to balance all aspects of your personality.

Tips and Takeaways

Anyone can learn how to see their aura, even if you don't think you're psychic.

However, if you had any trouble, don't get discouraged. Remember, anything new takes practice.

Here are some tips that will help:

  • Let your eyes and fingers rest for a little bit and try again.
  • Do the exercise when you are in a relaxed state, not rushed or frazzled.
  • Place your fingers together while doing the exercise to create pressure (don't create friction).
