shades-of-the-aura-and-their-meaningDifferent shades of the same color can have differing meanings in an aura. We touched on the main themes of what aura colors are and what many of the colors mean in a previous article, but here we will discuss the shades of each color and their (sometimes very different) meanings.

Shades of Red Auras

Red is a very powerful aura color that is connected to the circulation system. It can be either attractive or repulsive.

Dark Red Aura

A dark red aura means you are well-grounded and very self-sufficient. You are able to survive in almost any situation. Strong-willed and realistic people commonly have these colors in their auras.

Cloudy or muddy Red Aura

A cloudy red aura (sometimes known as muddy red) is a sign of negative energy. It is usually a signifier of some deep-seated inner anger.

Brilliant Red Aura

This is the color of passion and sexuality. It is a sign of a high-energy individual who has a very competitive nature.

Pink Aura

Pink auras show an artistic quality in a person. It also shows sensuality and an affinity for the finer things. Psychically gifted people and those who have recently fallen in love also have pink in their auras.

Dark Pink Aura

A dark pink aura is a signifier of deceit and dishonesty. Immaturity is a common trait in people with dark pink in their auras.

 

Shades of Yellow Auras

Yellow-Green Auras

These auras are associated with communicators. They are usually found in salespeople, musicians, and writers.

Dark Green Auras

A dark green aura shows a lot of underlying jealousy and resentment. People with dark green auras are not quick to take responsibility for their actions.

Emerald Green Auras

Emerald green auras are a sign of a very loving person. Healing comes naturally to these folks.

As you can see aura colors can tell a lot about someone and can help us understand ourselves on a deeper level.  You can even learn to see auras yourself with some practice.

How to Keep Your Chakras Free and Clear

how-to-keep-your-chakras-free-and-clearOur chakras are constantly taking in energy from various sources around us. This energy can be positive or negative. The negative energy we absorb can take a toll on our physical and spiritual wellbeing if you don’t keep it clear on a regular basis. Here are a few ways to clear out and balance your chakras so you feel fresh and new.

Root Chakra

Take off your shoes and go for a walk outdoors. This is a great way to keep grounded. A sandy beach or a grassy field in a park are great places to walk around and connect with the earth below your feet.

Sacral Chakra

Water is great for clearing out the sacral chakra. Go out for a swim, or take a relaxing bath to clean and balance this chakra.

Solar plexus Chakra

Start a morning routine of working out or running to clear out solar plexus chakra. When this chakra is clear, you have more energy and are more assertive.

Heart Chakra

Plain old love helps to clear out the heart chakra. Spend some time with your best friend, favorite family member, or especially a pet. Pets can show an almost unconditional love to you and are highly recommended for this exercise.

Throat Chakra

Keeping honest with others or yourself will keep the throat chakra clear. Keeping a journal is a great way to express the true way you think and feel about the world around you, and is highly recommended.

Third Eye Chakra

This is where your clarity resides. Spend some time meditating regularly to keep your head focused and open to receiving new wisdom.

Crown Chakra

The crown chakra is a known connection to your spirituality. Practice giving thanks and prayer daily to keep your spirit connected with your physical self. It will help to give you confidence in the moment and to trust in the direction you are heading.

Clearing Blocks and Staying Balanced

We all go through days when everything feels gloomy and depressing. Even simply getting out of bed seems like the clearing-blocks-and-staying-balancedtoughest chore in the world. You might have thought you are just being lazy but the truth is that laziness itself is a symptom of accumulated negative energy.

We must, therefore, have rituals for regularly clearing negative energy from our aura and our lives. Here are a few ideas that you can incorporate into your life:

Daily Meditation or Prayer
The 45 minutes before you go to sleep and the 45 minutes after you wake up in the morning are the two most important phases of your day. They not only set the tone for how your day will pass but also for what the next day will be like. If you wake up and go to sleep with negativity in your mind, then your days are bound to be riddled with negative situations. It is, therefore, absolutely mandatory that you establish morning and bedtime rituals for yourself and try to stick to them through thick or thin.

Mornings: It is advisable to wake up early in order to give a perfect and peaceful start to your day. Freshen up and hydrate yourself by drinking water. Thereafter, do some kind of a spiritual practice that you truly enjoy. It could be anything from meditation to prayer, or chanting, or maybe, even writing down affirmations. In order to choose the right practice for yourself focus on how you feel about it. If it makes you happy and fills your heart with joy, then you have found the right practice for yourself. Also, give yourself time to enjoy a hearty breakfast. Don’t eat in a hurry, and definitely not on the run. Make your entire morning an exercise in tranquility and mindfulness. This will set the tone for the rest of the day and you will be more present in everything you do.

Bedtime routine: Try to stay away from all electronic gadgets as much as possible. Take the time to truly relax by doing something that feels good to you. I personally feel that there can’t be a more decadent bedtime ritual than the luxury of taking a nice warm bath with scented candles and soothing music in the background.

To end the day on an ideal note, do your spiritual practice again. Go to bed with gratitude in your heart, looking forward to the next day. Affirm to yourself that tomorrow will be another beautiful and magical day. You will be surprised by how your days will suddenly start becoming more magical and beautiful.

Special Rituals/Meditations for Clearing Blockages

Salt Water Bath
Salt is said to absorb negative energy. Adding salt to your bath water and then soaking in it for a while is one of the most effective methods for removing any negative energy from your aura.

You can also place regular salt or salt crystals in small bowls around your house to remove negative energy from your environment.

Forgiveness
Non-forgiveness is the root causes of all suffering. Let go of the past and embrace the possibility of tomorrow by fully forgiving everyone who you believe has wronged you. You must understand that forgiveness is not something you do for others. Instead, it is a gift you give yourself. By forgiving others, you are setting yourself free from the anger and toxicity that is holding your happiness hostage. You don’t even need to tell the other person that you have forgiven them – releasing them and the memory of their wrong actions from your subconscious is what truly matters.

Practice this affirmation every day: I forgive myself for everything, I love myself unconditionally. I forgive everyone whom I believe has wronged me, I love everyone unconditionally.

It will likely not be easy saying this affirmation to yourself at the beginning but you must persist. Keep saying it to yourself until it begins to start feeling like the truth. Notice what emotions are coming up but don’t get attached to them. Witness them like an observer. Soon all negative emotions will dissolve and become replaced by a profound sense of inner peace.

Love
Love is what makes the world go around. Believe it or not, the most important kind of love is self-love. You must love yourself unconditionally. Is that selfish? Think about this, how can you ever give something to anyone else if you don’t have it for yourself?

Also, self-love does not mean egoism – it means having a healthy relationship with yourself. It implies living with dignity and self-respect. Give yourself love by taking out time for yourself to enjoy the things you like doing. Take good care of yourself – nurture your mind and nourish your body with good books and great food. Embrace your beauty by keeping yourself well-groomed and nicely dressed at all times. Don’t wait for someone else to make you feel special, become the most special person in the world for yourself.

Mindfulness
If you’ll observe your thoughts carefully, you’ll start to realize that most of your worries and fears are not related to the present moment. More often than not, you are either embroiled in memories of the past or frozen with fear in anticipation of the future. Simply bringing yourself to the present moment will clear the negative energy that has accumulated in your consciousness. Of course, it will take practice to master the art of mindfulness. What matters is to become more observant of your thoughts and feelings with regards to the present moment. Don’t analyze what comes up, and definitely, don’t attach yourself to the memories and emotions it brings up.

As simple as these practices sound, following them religiously will completely transform your life. Miracles are created by a shift in consciousness. Once you change the reality in your mind, the world around you changes. Embrace yourself fully and let your senses drown in the sweet intoxication of unconditional love – your life will start to fully blossom with positivity.

5 Tips to Enhance Your Meditation

meditation-277889_960_720Meditation is among the oldest forms of self-enlightenment, dating back thousands of years. Even today, it’s practiced by tens of millions of people throughout the world. If you’re thinking about meditating, however, you should follow these tips for an easier and more productive session.

Maintain a Positive Mindset

Meditation refers to a broad range of practices that are designed to reduce stress, increase energy, and develop a greater love, patience and compassion for others. Therefore, it’s essential that you maintain a positive mindset throughout the process. If you are stressed about work, finances or a relationship, it may negatively impact your meditation sessions. Learn to block out these negative thoughts while meditating, focusing on your inner chakra instead.

Meditate in a Distraction-Free Environment

It’s difficult to mediate when you’re constantly being distracted by outside elements. Whether it’s the television, radio, phone, etc., these things can make it difficult to concentrate, reducing the effectiveness of your sessions. So if you’re planning to meditate, find a quiet, distraction-free environment. Some people prefer to mediate at night for this very reason, as there’s fewer distractions during the night as opposed to the day.

Pre-Meditation Stretching

Many experts recommend performing a light stretching exercise before you meditate. The purpose of this is to improve flexibility and stimulate blood flow throughout the body. You don’t have to spend half an hour stretching, but rather spend a couple of minutes tilting your body forwards, backwards and from side to side.

Control Your Breathing

The secret to a productive meditation session lies in the breathing technique. Meditation is all about relaxing the body and mind — something that’s directly impacted by breathing. When meditating, take slow, deep breaths. This will slow your heart rate while allowing your body to relax. The great thing about deep-breathing exercises such as this is that you can perform them virtually anywhere, anytime.

Stimulate Your Senses

Contrary to what some people may believe, you don’t necessarily have to block out your surrounding environment when meditating. In fact, you can actually use your environment to your advantage by allowing it to further relax your body and mind. Burning scented candles or incense, for instance, may create a pleasing aroma that helps you relax. You can also play some soothing music, such as nature sounds, to enhance your meditation sessions and promote greater relaxation.

What is a Chakra? [Get the Facts]

When researching spiritual growth and development, you may come across something known as a chakra. Cultures throughout the world recognize chakras, using them for spiritual and religious purposes. But what exactly is a chakra? This is one of the many questions that we’re going to answer today.

Chakras: the Basics

A chakra is believed to be a metaphysical energy point within the body.  According to Indian religion, they serve as meeting points of energy channels known as nadi. Our bodies have an active life force flowing through them at all times. The pathways through which this life/energy force flows is nadi, whereas the connecting points are chakras.

Chakras are often used in conjunction with massage therapy, acupuncture, acupressure, and other forms of traditional medicine to treat and/or prevent illness. If you are feeling sad, depressed or experiencing emotional anxiety, for instance, targeting the solar plexus chakra may offer relief. Typically recognized as being directly above the stomach, the solar plexus chakra has been proven effective in treating emotional disorders.

Where Chakras are Located

If you asked ten different practitioners where the chakras are located, you would probably get ten different answers. That’s because every school has its own belief system regarding the use of chakras. Subsequently, this often leads to confusion regarding which areas to target for the best resolutions. If you are suffering from fatigue, for instance, one school may recommend targeting one chakra, whereas another school recommends targeting a different chakra.

In fact, there is no standard system of the chakras. Every school, sometimes every teacher within each school, has had his own chakra system.”
~ Professor David Gorden White

7 Most Common Chakras

Although there’s no universal system in place for identifying and utilizing chakras, the seven most common and widespread chakras consist of the following:

  • Root chakra
  • Sacral chakra
  • Solar Plexus chakra
  • Heart chakra
  • Throat chakra
  • Third-eye chakra
  • Crown chakra

Why Chakras are Important

Chakras are important because they represent our body’s life/energy force. When this invisible force becomes trapped, the point of conflict must be stimulated to restore it back to its working order. Failure to correct blockages of life force can leave us susceptible to disease and illness, ranging from the common cold virus to more serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses. Chakras represent the points on the body where these blockages occur. Therefore, by identifying these areas you can correct blockages of life force to promote better health and wellness.

How to Improve Your Aura Energy

Although invisible to the naked eye, every man, woman and child has an invisible force surrounding their bodies. Known as an aura, it’s believed to play an important role in our health and well-being. When our aura energy subsides, we are less protected against disease and illness. When our aura is strong, on the other hand, we are more protected against adverse conditions. So, what can you do to strengthen the energy of your aura?

Soak in the Sun

The sun’s powerful UV rays can strengthen your aura, supplementing your body with much-needed vitamin D while reinvigorating your cells. A good rule of thumb is to strive for 30 minutes of sun exposure per day. Keep in mind, however, that too much sun exposure can be bad for your health, promoting fine lines, early aging, and even increasing your risk of melanoma. Stick with 30 minutes per day for maximum benefit to your aura.  If you can’t get enough sun depending on where you live or the season, then consider taking a Vitamin D supplement.

Avoid Processed Foods

Humans have evolved over the course of tens of thousands of years, during which we’ve consumed natural foods like fresh vegetables, fruits and meats. It wasn’t until this past century, however, when our diets began to shift towards more processed foods — with a particular focus on grains. There’s nothing wrong with an occasional processed snack, but if the bulk of your diet is processed foods, it may weaken your aura. These foods will make you feel “full” afterwards, but they don’t offer any real vitamins or nutrition, thus weakening nearly every system in your body — including your aura.

Relax…

Among the most damaging elements to a person’s aura field is stress. When you experience psychological stress, your body weakens and becomes more susceptible to illness. Unfortunately, though, stress is something that everyone will experience during their lives, some more frequently than others. While there’s no way to completely avoid stress, there are ways to reduce it. Here are some simple tips to reduce stress and promote a stronger aura:

Salt Bath

We’ve talked about the benefits of salt before on our blog, but it’s worth mentioning again that this naturally occurring mineral can increase levels of positive energy. If you’re looking to improve your aura energy, try taking a warm bath with one cup of sea salt added. The salt will stimulate your aura while cleansing your skin in the process.

Relaxation Techniques to Relieve Stress and Anxiety

Do you experience regular bouts of stress? While some people assume stress is harmless, it can negatively affect both your body and mind. According to the website StatisticsBrain, 77% of the general population experiences physical symptoms caused by stress. This may include increased blood pressure, sweating, insomnia, weakened immune system, fatigue, etc. Thankfully, you can relieve stress and anxiety by engaging in one or more of the following relaxation techniques.

Mantra Meditation

Mantra is a Transcendental Meditation technique that involves silently repeating a word or phrase in a quiet, distraction-free environment with your eyes closed. Your “mantra” can literally be anything, ranging from your own name to a motivational phrase like “just breathe.” Of course, it’s recommended that you choose a positive mantra for optimal results, as negatively focused mantras could have the opposite effect by increasing stress levels. Mantra meditation is believed to allow the individual’s attention to transition to a quieter style of functioning. Click here for some ancient mantra’s.

Guided Meditation

What in the world is guided meditation and how can it help to relieve stress and anxiety? Guided meditation is exactly what it sounds like: meditation that’s performed under the guidance and/or instructions of another individual. Many people want to meditate but don’t know how. Guided meditation allows newcomers to experience a true, genuine meditation practice under the expertise of an instructor.

Keep in mind, however, that you can still perform guided meditation at home. There are guided meditation DVDs, MP3s, smartphone apps and more.

On our site we share various meditations with you every month, some of which are guided. A couple links are listed below, as well as another at the end of this post.

Observe Your Mind

The next time you feel stressed, try becoming the observer of your own mind. To do this, close your eyes and place your attention towards the area between your eyebrows (known as the Third Eye). Rather than feeling your anxiety, sit back and observe it. Doing so will allow you to develop a greater understanding of the true cause of your stress, at which point you make changes in your life to eliminate it.

Relax Your Muscles

As we mentioned earlier, stress can bring on physical symptoms, such as muscle tension for instance. When you are stressed, your body will instinctively tense up. To relieve this physical tension, close your eyes and relax each and every muscle, starting from the top of your head and working your way to the bottom of your feet. As your muscles begin to revert back to their normal, relaxed state, you’ll feel a sense of calmness flowing through your body. See the meditation video below.

We also offer free and low-cost downloadable meditations and mantras on our sister site.
