More About the Aura


The aura is the energy field of glowing, colored light (bands of light actually) that encircles a person’s body.  Everybody has an aura that radiates outward about 6 feet from their skin in all directions.   According to most sources there are 17 different colored bands of light but not everyone has all of these colors in their aura and 3 of them (gold, pink, and white) are special cases that will be answered in the FAQs section (see Question #3).  The color closest to the body is called a person’s life color or core color.  Note that there are just as many people that have two core colors as there are those that have one.  The core color does not change throughout life (with very few exceptions) as it is strongest by being close to the body.  The bands of light that are progressively further away from the body (outside the core color) get progressively weaker and are more subject to change color based on current mood, personal circumstances, emotional and physical health, etc.


Each aura color is indicative of very distinct personality traits.  Because of the myriad ways the bands of light can combine in an aura, everyone’s personality is distinct.  However, two people who have the same core color will not only have many personality traits in common but will have similar broad goals in life.  They will also relate to other aura colors in a similar way and be drawn to career paths with a similar objective even if different means.  By understanding your core color better and how it relates to other core colors you are able to accentuate your innate strengths and mitigate your weak personality characteristics.  As with any system that categorizes people by personality traits there are no “better than” or “worse than” aura colors.  Each core color is here on Earth to experience and express a different reality and thus add to the richness and diversity of life.  Although one’s core color is most often fixed throughout life the other bands of light do change as we evolve or de-evolve, as the case may be.


For simplicity, the core colors can be categorized into three broad aura families – (1) the physical colors, (2) the mental colors and (3) the emotional colors.  The physical colors process information through their bodies, primarily trusting what they can touch, see, taste, hear and smell.  The mental colors process information logically and objectively by gathering data and information and analyzing it.  The emotional colors process information through their intuition, emotions and feelings.  See Table 1 below for a listing of all the core colors by aura family.


People who have two core colors usually have each color in a different aura family.  For example, someone may have the core colors Yellow and Green.  Yellow is a physical color and Green is a mental color.  They belong to different aura families.  It happens rarely, but if someone has two core colors from the same aura family, say Tan and Green which are both mental colors, then that person feels as though they are living two lifetimes in one.  They feel as if their life is overwhelming in some way.  They may have a big shift in their life where they switch the main focus of their life from one color to the other.  People who have two core colors can sometimes experience great inner conflict if their core colors are very different from each other, like Yellow and Green for example, which are exact opposites.


Some people who had a traumatic childhood or felt threatened in some way early in life have added or overlaid another color to their outer bands.  It is called a “red overlay” because it is red but it is not the same as the red core color (which is closest to the body).  The red overlay is originally added in childhood to protect the child but if it isn’t removed from the aura this protective shield eventually becomes a prison shutting them off from life and all the good it has to offer.  People with a red overlay can be short-tempered and tend to see life as a battleground.  They can live a life of continuous struggle and self-sabotage until they work on removing the red overlay.


Here is a list of all of the core colors by aura family:

Pamala's books, Life Colors and Make Your Dreams Come True, explain how knowing your aura colors and discovering your beliefs can empower you to live the life you have always dreamed of living.  I have benefited so much from both of these books that I wanted to at least mention them on my website in the hopes that other people may also benefit from them.


The book Life Colors goes into much more detail about each color than the brief descriptions Pamala gives on her website.  She also talks about combination colors in her book, which are quite common and add much more understanding to the basic descriptions.  Each color in the book is talked about in terms of: (1) Basic characteristics, (2) Relationships, (3) Sex, (4) How they are as Parents, (5) How they are as Children, (6) How they Solve Problems, (7) How they handle Money, (8) What Success means to them, (9) Typical Occupations, and (10) Health.


Another of my favorite Aura Colors books as it pertains to personality is What Color Is Your Aura? by Barbara Bowers, Ph.D.  The questionnaire in her book is not as good for determining your correct aura color(s) as Pamala's test is but the information on each aura color is absolutely excellent and I learned so much from her.


Pamala's book Make Your Dreams Come True is a double-spaced, big print, 163 page easy-to-read book that can change your life!  It is all about our beliefs and how they create everything in our lives!  There are four parts to the book.  Part I is The Power of Belief, Part II is Discovering Your Beliefs, Part III is Changing Your Beliefs and Part IV is Creating with New Beliefs.
