What Color Are You Really? by Lorena Bowser

What Color Are You Really?
by Lorena Bowser

Everything in the universe is made up of matter and energy. 

People live in colored eggs! 

It’s presumptuous to make the first statement because “everyone already knows that!” It’s been scientifically proven. But with the second statement, I’m risking credibility.  Yet the former gives credence to the latter.  Those colored “eggs” are just another term for “auric egg,” or aura, the name given to the collection of electro-magnetic energies that emit from the body – in fact, from every bit of matter in the universe.

Auras are sort of like our personal energy shields.  And what’s really cool, is that they have colors – each one specific to the individual personality.  If colors don’t actually exist in the universe, but are only different wavelengths (energy) perceived in our enclosed, dark brains, seeing someone’s aura color could be like looking into his mind, Well, I’m pushing it a bit, but aura’s are said to give us an insight into someone’s personality.  That sounds more practical. We don’t really want a Big Brother society, but a big brother who understands us would be nice. Can we really have auras of colored light around us?  Why not! 

We have all seen a mirage rising from distant hot pavement, or felt the presence of someone who comes into a room unseen where we are alone. We can’t touch these things but we know they are there.  We are perceiving the energy that arises from matter in a state of change.  I quote from science: “Energy is the ability to cause change or do work.”  Yeah, we know that too. 

How can anyone know if an aura exists or even see its color?  It’s not an every day experience for most of us. But there are people who can see auras.  Interestingly, these people’s auras are usually in the blue to violet range, the colors that relate to sensitive, intuitive and even psychic personalities.   Just for fun, I’ve listed the aura colors that relate to different personalities, so you can determine the color of your aura. This is sort of putting the cart before the horse, as there are tests that you can take first to see which color aura you have, but I suggest that artists, those sensitive people who put their souls into creative “energy,” have a more direct way to determine their auras: think about the color that most excites you when you paint, design theatre sets, or weave luscious yarns into clothing. Or just take a look in your closet. What’s the predominant color?

Keep in mind that your aura may change color if you have a combination of personality traits, or become darker or lighter with changes in your health or morale, but if you find yourself mainly in one of the following descriptions, that is likely your aura color: 
Red: Strong-willed, straightforward, energetic, well-grounded, hard worker, team player, competitive, realistic, impulsive, and easily overwhelmed by change. If a health issue arises, it will be due to anxiety.

Orange: Courageous, adventurous, thoughtful, considerate, self-assured, detail-oriented, and sometimes lacking self-discipline. Health issues usually stem from the kidney or reproductive organs.

: Laid-back, playful, creative, friendly, optimistic, avoids conflict, mental alertness, timid and feelings are easily hurt. Health issues relate to the spleen.

Green: Social, love people, animals and nature, good communicator, perfectionist, quick-witted, organizer, impatient, trustworthy, nurturing. Lungs are the indicated health issue.

Blue: Helpful, caring, spiritual, intuitive, generally at peace and content, understanding, peacemaker, steadfast, freethinker. Some believe that problems a person with this aura color may experience relates to the throat or thyroid.

Indigo: Imaginative, daydreamer, curious, deep inner feelings, sometimes lacks self-esteem, gentle, unassuming, introvert, calm and modest. The eyes are the concern for indigo-aura people.

Violet: Idealistic, most sensitive and wisest of the colors, a seeker of truth, independent, intellectual, extrovert and authoritative. Sometimes people with a violet aura color have psychic power. Violet relates to the pineal gland and nervous system.

Apparently white and gold are not offered in this list, yet I find it fascinating that the saints are traditionally pictured with white or gold halos. What person could have imagined halos on his own?  Someone saw their auras. These colors relate to absolute purity of soul and divine protection. No surprise if most of us are more colorful. 

This latest look at the influence of color in our lives has provided me with an “aha moment.”   I refer to my painting shown here, “Reflection on Gaudi.”  An art instructor told me not to paint it. He said it was boring.  My head - and sense of respect for an “expert’s” opinion - said “don’t paint it.”  My gut said “do it!”   So I did.  A few months later it was chosen for the Annual National Juried Show at the North Valley Art League in Redding, and then again for a Juried Show at the California Modern Art Museum in San Francisco!  Maybe my aura was telling me something. According to the aura color descriptions, I am blue/indigo.  We must be who we are meant to be after all, and that is perhaps the key to our greatest success in life.

Browse some “aura” information on the web and have fun with your aura sleuthing. And if you need a “scientific” explanation to give the subject more credibility, just borrow Einstein’s E=mc2     Energy = my color my aura.   It’s all relative!

  1. Lorena-I really enjoyed this article. When I was 12 or 13, I saw my first aura, but it was yellow-green. It surrounded my mom. The really cool thing is that if you have a person stand infront of a white wall, the aura is even brighter. Thanks for the read

  2. Oh yeah---it's me Lorrena Bowser-Beat

  3. Thanks, Lorrena. I'm just not receiving the comments on my articles. I apologize for not finding this sooner. It's cool that you can see auras. Yes, the white sheet thing is recommended for anyone seriously interested. I hope a few people try it. After all..it is nice to know our friends and loved ones better. This is just one more way to gain insight. Pretty cool, huh!
