Color Meanings

There is a common misunderstanding that your energy field is only one particular color. But the many parts of your energy system can change colors often. Find out about the different aura colors meaning.

Different Shapes

How you respond to life’s experiences affects the shape of your energy system. Possible shapes include being fuzzy, walled-off from others, spiky in shape, and a healthy neutral stance. What is your aura shape?

Are you putting your energy out in front of your body, outback, up above, or are you being present and centering in the now? See common energy field positions.


Auras contain many different colors, change colors constantly, and each shade affects the aura colors meaning. Your mood, what you’re doing and what you’re experiencing in life all determine the colors of your aura at any given time.

In New Age pop culture, there is a common misconception that aura colors meaning is straightforward. Examples are: red=passion, yellow=optimism and purple=spirituality. Make no mistake, colors do contain meaning. But attempts to create ‘cut and dried’ color codes greatly over-simplify the matter.

Within each color, there are many different shades and tones. Each unique shade communicates a different meaning. Take a simple example: the color red. A bright shade of red that contains a lot of yellow reads very differently than a dark shade of red which contains a lot of browns. Each of these tones would express something different about your aura. A trained clairvoyant reader can look at these shades of color and interpret their unique shades of meaning.

Another example…imagine you are going through color swatches to pick the right tone of paint fora room. There are many subtle variations. Some you will like and some you won’t like. Even if they are all tones within the same color, each can make you feel differently. Bottom line: different tones of the same color communicate different meanings.

Aura ShapesHow Are You Responding to Life?

How you respond to life’s experiences affects the shape of your aura. Aura shapes include the fuzzy aura, the aura wall, the spiky aura, and the neutral aura. A person will generally tend toward one of these shapes in particular.

At the same time, depending on what’s happening in life, your aura stance can change. For example, someone who normally has a fuzzy aura could change to a spiky aura stance if they were feeling threatened. While other aura stances are possible, the artistic representations below display four more common…


The Fuzzy AuraLack of clear personal boundaries. Tendency to take on other people’s stuff, get caught up in other people’s problems. Issues with defining healthy personal boundaries and neutrally saying ‘no’ to others. Unconscious believing ‘if you want people to like you, it’s not okay to set boundaries’.

Spiky Aura

Feeling threatened and ready for conflict. Deeply wounded. Usually a history of some kind of abuse: physical, sexual, mental, emotional, etc. Reactive. When a person has this kind of aura stance, they will often hurt other people–even those who may be trying to help.

Neutral Aura

Clear sense of Self. Able to define healthy boundaries with others. Takes self responsibility. Owns personal space without needing needing to fight or defend. Empowered to respond neutrally.

Aura Size and Patterns…

You can learn a lot about yourself from your aura size and patterns. Auras can be large, small, absent, or healthy and balanced…

Are you spreading yourself too thin?Are you holding yourself back?Are you being absent for your life?Or do you practice being present and balanced?

A person will generally tend toward one of these patterns more than the others.

At the same time, depending on what’s going on in life, the size of your energy field and its position can change. For example, you might pull your energy in tight when you feel afraid, and expand your energy out far when you feel very confident.

While other variations are possible, the artistic representations below display four more common aura patterns…


Large Aura

A large aura might demonstrate an intent to control or dominate others. But a large aura can also indicate spreading yourself too thin and taking too much responsibility for others. When your aura is spread out wide, it is easy to lose touch with your inner Self and become overly focussed on things outside yourself.

Small Aura

A small, withdrawn aura often indicates fear on some level. You might be trying to hide, hoping you won’t attract attention. You may be holding back your energy until you feel safe to release your energy to flow. When your aura is pulled in tight, it is easy to lose your sense of Self, as it shuts down the healthy flow of energy through your system.

Absent: Energy Out of Body

If you are unhappy with your life, or have been deeply wounded on some level, you may have a tendency to unconsciously “check-out” and be out of your body. While you-as spirit are out of your body, you can temporarily avoid facing any pain or problems. But eventually you and your body will need to deal with these issues. If you tend to keep your energy above your body, the end result is being absent, rather than present, for your life. Consciously leaving your body once in a while is not generally a problem.

Healthy, Balanced Aura Size

A healthy balanced aura extends about an arm’s length around the body. With your aura an arm’s length around, you can be aware of others and the world around you, without losing your sense of Self. Having your aura an arm’s length around your body, supports you in being present and allows for a healthy, balanced flow of energy.
