Aura colours – Rose Powell

Colours contain a wealth of invaluable information, this, a document shared with the permission of Rose contains her interpretation of colour having read the energy/aura of many different people over many years.

There is a huge amount of colour interpretation information available on the internet. Having met Rose a number of times and having deep respect and trust for her work this is the one I use for reference with students and I am confident that sharing this on my site will help many others trying to grasp a small part of what can be a huge and very interesting subject of discovery.

We shouldn’t approach the colours within the aura as merely hard bands of colour stepping out one from another as often shown in images we see on the internet as the Auric field is very much alive and changes constantly. This is influenced by our physical health, our emotional states, our spiritual place at any time and our mental state. These four states, of course, having much influence on each other and mood swings also having a major effect not only in the colouring but in the expansion and withdrawal of the Auric Field. We can of course quite simply use visualisation to over-ride the current state.

If we decide to undertake serious research and learning about the Aura we again start on a massive journey with so many interpretations by a wealth of publishers and again I would urge that you don’t just follow any text-book meanings as a given. Experiment, experience, ask that your Spiritual Helpers bring forth information and if you attempt to interpret colours in an Aura TRUST the information even though at times variations from the text-book lessons occur.

Build a catalogue of the colours in the way that you understand and can remember. If you associate healing as GREEN and I associate it as BLUE and we link into a HEALER we will receive the colour that we associate as correct. Some of us SEE the auric colours, many of us KNOW the auric colours, the majority initially in my opinion SENSE the auric colours.

Don’t be despondent if you don’t see colours in the auric field. I’d given up on it ever happening and then around 5 years after I first attempted this I saw beautiful colouring above the head of a very spiritual friend and I was absolutely stunned. It hasn’t happened again since in the same way but it happened once and that proves to me that these colours do exist and that they are living elements not just blocks of hard lines with one colour ceasing as another begins.

We must always remember is to use our intuition, it’s there for a reason and we may find that we work in different ways to each other. Find out what works for you and in time you will easily be able to call on colours as a great tool to support your mediumship.

Placement of colours in the Aura

Left Side (future) – The colour on the left side is normally the vibration coming into your being. The closer it is to you, the sooner it will be felt. This could be a few moments, hours, or as long as a few months.
Centre (experience) – The colour seen over your head is what you experience for your self now. It is the colour that would best describe you. If the colour is high, it could mean aspirations, or what you wish to be.
Right Side (expression) – The colour on the right side is traditionally the energy being expressed. This is the vibration frequency most likely seen or felt by others around you. Many times, your friends will think this the energy that you are made of. However, it is what you are putting out to the world.
