People with a violet aura are often described as dynamic, charming, confident, and can be seen as futuristic. They are in sync with their emotions and those of others.  This makes them empathetic to the feelings of those around them.

The Violet aura personality has natural leadership and intelligence however if imbalanced can be outwardly seen as arrogance, or narcissism.


Lavender is associated with the third eye and the crown chakras and is a deeply spiritual and always positive in nature. It pertains to vision, spiritual connections and creative imagination. The only aspect a person with lavender in their aura needs to be aware of is staying connected to the physical even when things are boring – lavender folk are life’s daydreamers.


Silver is a spiritual colour which highlights abundance.  It shows up in the auric field, in areas related to the specific abundance.

  • Bright Intense Silver – A patch of this colourindicates one of two things – abundance of money already in possession or coming in, or a significant spiritual event (usually a deeper awakening).
  • Metallic Translucent Silver – Indicates a person who is nurturing and highly intuitive. These people come up with new ideas.
  • Muddy Grey – Patches of muddy grey indicate a build-up of unreleased fear in the body. This can lead to blocks in the chakras and imbalance of physical energy. This colour can indicate, or lead to, health problems associated with the body area where the muddy grey is located.
  • Dirty Grey – Seen as a film or thin transparent overlay — this shows a blockage or imbalance. If all chakras are balanced, then the individual has a skeptic nature and lacks trust.  It is important to engage in meditation or spiritual development to clear blacks in the energy field. 


Gold is a magnificent colour to find within the aura.  It indicates a person who has “divine protection” and who is enlightened or on the way to enlightenment.

A person with gold in the aura is encased in divine and universal guidance. This person is full of life and universal wisdom. They have inner peace with highly developed intuition and spirituality. They are teachers, leaders and guides for others.


Black is often used in folklore and literature for associations with negativity and being on the wrong path. While not always of a negative nature, black is associated in history with negative events for good reason.  It is the colour that contains all colour – it is dense and is associated with capture and transformation.

Black usually indicates a person with an unforgiving nature. These people need to clear the black from the aura before serious health-related problems ensue.

It is often associated to past life problems, unreleased negativity and anger and usually shows a great deal of stored emotional grief. It is important to remember that black can be released and can be transformed.


White contains and reflects all colour. It reflects all colour energy to wherever it is best used and needed for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

White is the universal colour of protection. Seeing dense patches of white or a white outer layer signifies a person who knows and speaks only the truth.

It indicates a person of great health and purity and an individual with “angelic” qualities. If you see flashes of bright white or sparkling dots and white sparks this means angels are with you and communicating.

Note: If there is ever a Dirty Grey White seen, this colour can be indicative of possible illness.

Earth Tones

Colours reminiscent of those found in the natural world that look like natural substances (i.e. soil, wood, minerals and various plants) are signs that the person is attached to the earth and grounded physically.

Often these colours and shapes are seen in those who work or live on the land and in nature.

The only earthly shade that requires attention and clearing is a dense patch of solid Brown. This would indicate a person who tends to be greedy and who is close minded and self-absorbed.

If the brown is not solid and dense but appears to be a translucent film or overlay (you can see the other colours and fields below it) this indicates a person who is holding onto insecurity and stored negative energies.  This needs to be cleared before ill-health develops.


In some people you may see actual rainbows that appear as a straight line. These tend to emanate from the hand or head, however, can emanate from any part of the body.

These rainbows indicate a highly developed and gifted spiritual energy healer.
