Did you ever wonder what the differences are between chakras and auras? Or how they work together? Did you ever think it might be useful to know? (Hint: It is)
Understanding these energy centers is one way to enhance your spiritual unfoldment, psychic development, and gain more insight into this wild ride we call life.
An Overview of Chakras and Auras
Chakras are multi-colored, beautiful spinning wheels in our energy fields. I like to envision them as the spinning pinwheels I had when I was a kid.
We have seven main chakra points. (Some people believe we have many, many more, including hundreds of “mini-chakras”.) Here are the main ones:
- Crown chakra – located at the top of the head
- Third-eye chakra – between the eyebrows
- Throat chakra – at the throat
- Heart chakra – center of the chest, near the heart
- Solar plexus chakra – in the area of your naval
- Sacral chakra – lower abdomen/sacral vertebrae (lower back) area
- Root chakra – base of the spine
Your chakras are points where energy transfers.
Think of them as distribution warehouses for energy. Just as a truck gets packed with things to be delivered, your chakras can channel energy to where it’s needed in your system.
Your chakras can become blocked, just as your mind becomes blocked when you are working through a challenge in your life.
In fact, the chakras can indicate where your emotional blockage is, so you can dive on in there fix it. It’s really powerful stuff! Some people can even see chakras and auras. You can develop your intuitive gifts to the point where you can see them, too.
The condition of your chakras (how they spin, if they are open or closed, etc.) form your aura.
Your aura is the energy field that surrounds your body. It has seven layers to it. The layers are not perfectly “layered” on top of each other, but blend into one another.
All living things have energy, therefore, have an aura: people, plants, rocks, and even your fuzzy little pet.
The human aura extends out several feet around the body. Rocks, not so much. Why? Because humans are much more complex than a rock, which means our aura is MUCH more dazzling than the aura of any other living thing.
Your aura tells a lot about you – like whether you are tired, happy, friendly, logical, depressed, etc. It’s like reading a map of energy!
How awesome would it be to read and see your kids auras? It’s TOTALLY something you can learn and, as a mom of two teens, I can think of LOTS of ways that would be helpful.
Think of your aura as your energetic “SPACE”. In my house we say, “You’re in my bubble,” when one of us feels like the other is in our energetic space. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “Mom, she’s in my bubble!”
The colors of the aura and shades of intensity vary with emotion that you are currently projecting. Intense feelings = intense colors. Your aura can look healthy and vibrant and sparkle, or it can look unhealthy and have visible “holes”.
How Chakras and Auras Work Together
What makes chakras and auras appear as they do, and what makes them work the way they work? It’s all about your energy, of course!
For example, every day, you think and feel emotion. You reason; you gather up data; you come to conclusions.
All of this affects your chakras and auras. When you are feeling positive and passionate, and decisions are easy, your chakras spin and energy flows effortlessly. Your aura layers shimmer with aliveness.
But we don’t always feel like we’re walking on sunshine, right? We get stuck. We get headaches. We feel overwhelmed. We ponder; we fret; we wonder; we hope.
It’s during those times that your chakras spin more slowly and sometimes stop or get entirely blocked. This affects your aura and causes it to look less vibrant and healthy.
What causes your chakras and aura to to be less healthy? It’s the lower levels of energy we create with our thinking. Our chakras and aura colors are externalizations of the expressions of our thoughts, our feelings, and our moods or disposition.
Improve your chakras and auras and improve your life
Below is a little overview of chakras and auras. It’s very simplified, but a good starting guide.
Let’s say that you feel you are struggling with your psychic development. Your sixth or seventh chakra could be blocked. So what do you do?
You could have a healing session. Or, you could meditate on those chakras, imagining them healthy and open. You could also surround yourself in a cocoon of indigo and violet light to improve your aura.
When you look at the chart, don’t over-analyze. Just have fun and trust your intuition.
You are constantly sending out short bursts of energy as you live your life. Your energy transmits itself over the phone lines when you have an incoming call and you know who is calling you. You know when someone in your family needs your help.
We’re all united by energy and the energy we are is wonderfully symbolized by the interaction of our chakras and auras, and our intermingling of our own with all others.
