Auras are the physical manifestation of the electric field surrounding each and every living thing. That is what causes shocks if you touch something metal. Some people have the ability to see these auras, which have different colours, depending on the person.

Reading auras can be useful in determining whether you should confront a person at a certain time, what you can do to improve your present condition, clue you in to illnesses and conditions around you. Every time you come into contact with someone, your aura reacts to theirs. If your aura's frequency is close to theirs, you will feel close to them quickly and drawn to them. If not, you may feel an instant disliking towards them.
Everything has an aura. We have been 'trained' not to see them, but with a little practice many people can successfully see and read them. When you begin, you may have a hard time seeing the colours. A lot of times, beginners will see pale colours such as white, yellow, and light blue. As time passes, and with practice, you will see that the colours seem to become brighter to you and easier to read. A little bit of patience can go a long way.
LEARN HOW TO SEE AURAS
First of all, find a place where you won't be around any harsh light; soft light is best to read auras. You will also need a piece of white paper or card large enough to place your whole hand on.
Place your hand on the card and relax your eyes. Don't stare at your hand, rather look at the areas around the fingertips and fingers.
After a while, if you are relaxed enough, you will begin to see a soft haze around your hand. If you look at it long enough, you will start to see colours. Beginners can usually make out only one colour, but as you get better you will be able to see several at one time.
Don't be discouraged if you don't see anything the first few times. It takes practice to become good at reading auras, and after a while you will realise that it's not really as hard as you might have first thought.
You may also wish to take nonliving objects, like rocks and such, and try to see their auras as well. This can be very good practice for you.
THE MEANING OF COLOURS IN AN AURA
Red - Strength, strong passion, and will. All red relates to nervous tendencies. Harsh reds tend to indicate emotionally charged physical animation, usually anger. Warm reds indicate someone who is sensuous, or physically charged and healthy.
Orange - Warmth, thoughtfulness, creativity, friendly, open and approachable. The muddier shades may represent pride or vanity, while golden orange denotes self-control. A person with orange in their aura may suffer from kidney ailments.
Yellow - Mental activity, Intellectual, thinking, working faculties and optimism. It can mean new learning opportunities and wisdom. A golden yellow means that the person takes care of him or herself. Ruddy yellow may mean that the person is shy.
Green - Sympathy, calm, healthy, balanced, charming, sensual, sensible or conniving. A person who has green in his or her aura may be very good at the healing arts and is very reliable. Dark shades of green can indicate one who is jealous or uncertain. Lime Green: Not many have this colour and are balanced.
Blue - Intellect but calm, reserved, spiritual, convinced; sometimes an integrated personality exuding charisma. Any blue in the aura is good to have, but deep blue is the best. One with deep blue in his or her aura shows a person who has found his or her work in life. Many are spiritual minded as well. Blue may sometimes represent a tendency to be moody and depressed.
Indigo and Violet - The colours of one who is seeking something in life. Spiritual, sensitive, focused but not necessarily in reality. The ability to handle affairs with worldliness and practicality. Dark shades may show that the person has obstacles to overcome and is feeling misunderstood.
Black - The colour of protection. May reflect a person who is hiding something, nothing getting out, shielding or hiding. Total absorption. It may possibly indicate imbalances. If there is a metallic tint this may be someone who is very skilled who doesn't want to be noticed, scanned or bothered
Pink - This is the colour of love. It represents compassion, and possibly a love of art and beauty. Darker or muddier shades of pink may point to an individual who is immature White - Many times this is one of the first colours you will see in an aura. However, when it is a true and strong colour of the aura, it reflects purity and truth.
Brown - This could reflect a person who is very 'earthy' and that a person is establishing new roots . Could be warm, rich and well integrated person, or one who is unhealthy, or just to much going on (different types of stress). However, if it is seen in the chakras, it may mean that a person's energy is in some way being blocked.
Silver lights or twinkles - Seeing these in a person's aura may mean that they are pregnant, or have been or may soon be. However, this is not always so. Seeing this may indicate a person who is allowing great creativity in their life.
