What is the Aura Colors System?

The Aura Colors system is a personality system designed to help people value and appreciate themselves and others through an understanding of the unique personality traits of each aura color. Each aura color has individual patterns of behavior and character that are distinct from the other colors. In some cases the behavior is similar but the motivations behind that behavior are different.

The aura is an egg-shaped electromagnetic energy field of glowing, pulsating, multi-colored light that emanates from all living beings. It is made up of concentric bands or layers of colored light that travel in patterns around the body. See "The Human Aura" picture below. Unlike the picture below, the human aura extends out from the body about 6 feet in all directions. The unique combination of colors in a person's aura represents a sort of blueprint of that person's soul and his/her greatest potential.

The Human Aura


In this system there are 14 distinctly different aura colors:

1. Red
2. Orange
3. Magenta
4. Yellow
5. Physical Tan (aka Environmental Tan)
6. Mental Tan (aka Logical Tan)
7. Green
8. Loving Tan (aka Abstract Tan)
9. Nurturing Tan (aka Sensitive Tan)
10. Blue
11. Lavender
12. Violet
13. Crystal
14. Indigo

Everyone has multiple colors in his/her aura but the most important color is called a person's primary color or life color. It is the color closest to a person's body and it doesn't change throughout a person's life (with very few exceptions, like a profound spiritual awakening experience that completely changes a person's personality). Please note that there are just as many people, if not more, that have two different life colors that don't change throughout life as there are those that have one. This will be talked about more in the section on Aura Color Combinations below. All of the colors in a person's aura beyond (outside) the life color(s) are subject to change based on a person's current physical, emotional and psychological health. As these colors get progressively further away from the body they also get progressively weaker and have less and less effect on the essence of a person's personality.

As mentioned, 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 completely distinct too. However, two people who have the same life color(s) 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 life color better and how it relates to other life colors you can accentuate your innate strengths and mitigate your innate weaknesses. As with any system that categorizes people by personality traits there are no "better than" or "worse than" aura colors. Each life color is here on Earth to experience and express a different reality and thus add to the richness and diversity of life!

What is the practical use of the Aura Colors System?

There are many practical applications of the Aura Colors system. As with the other powerful systems on this website the Aura Colors system can be especially useful for increasing fulfillment and satisfaction in many important areas of life, such as relationships, career, education, self-understanding, self-esteem, and parenting. I will speak about each in turn.

In relationships, the Aura Colors system can be used for improving communication, understanding, synergy and connectedness by valuing differences between people. For more information on how you can improve your relationships using the Aura Colors system, as well as all the other systems I use, visit my section on Relationship Compatibility. As interdependent beings, it is my belief that our happiness, in large part, depends on the quality of our relationships. And the quality of our relationships depends on our self-esteem and willingness to cherish other people's uniqueness. And our self-esteem comes from making moment-to-moment choices in alignment with our deepest values. And making moment-to-moment choices in alignment with our deepest values comes from knowing ourselves deeply and honoring the still, small voice inside (our inner wisdom). For more information on relationship compatibility using aura colors I highly recommend Pamala Oslie's books, Life Colors and Love Colors as well as Barbara Bowers' book, What Color Is Your Aura?

Vocational Guidance is another great use for the Aura Colors system. Each of us has innate talents that come so naturally to us that we don't even see them as gifts. Unfortunately, many people don't know what their inner gifts are. That's one of the reasons I created this website! In his book, "The Pathfinder: How to Choose or Change Your Career for a Lifetime of Satisfaction and Success" Nicholas Lore surveyed 1,500 people and found that only 10% of them actually felt their work fit their personality and was a vehicle for full self-expression. 20% of people enjoyed their work most of the time, 30% accepted their work without a struggle, 30% go to work because they are forced to by circumstances, and 10% feel as though their job is hell! So, perhaps as many as 70% of people don't enjoy their work. Do you think that affects their relationships? Health? Self-esteem? Enjoyment of life? Inner peace? World peace!? For more information on how the Aura Colors system can be used for vocational guidance visit my Vocational Guidance section.

In education, the Aura Colors system could be used to help each child with a different life color learn in ways most natural for him or her. For example, most Mental Tans, Nurturing Tans and Physical Tans do very well with the structured, step-by-step, rote memorization method of learning that is so prevalent in schools today but most of the other colors don't! More and more Indigo children (the psychically gifted ones) are emerging today and they often get labeled as having ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and put on drugs like Ritalin when they really just need special care and training. Knowledge of the aura colors system (as well as all the other systems on this website) would enable teachers to understand the different needs of their students and tailor their teaching to reflect their awareness of all different learning styles. The Aura Colors system can also build self-esteem by helping kids better understand their unique gifts and talents as well as those of others. It can also helps kids plan their lives to make full use of their innate gifts. Sadly, since our Western society doesn't feel comfortable with New Age systems like Aura Colors yet I don't know of any schools that are implementing this system.

In parenting, the Aura Colors system can help parents truly understand and nurture the individuality of their children. With knowledge of their child's life color(s) (and the other systems on this website) parents can increase their children's self-esteem by encouraging them to use their natural gifts and talents. Since more and more spiritually advanced Indigo and Crystal children are being born these days, parents who have these bright, precocious children would do well to learn as much as they can about them. Parents can also learn more about the energetic interaction between their life color(s) and their child's so that they can get along most harmoniously.

People who know themselves are able to make better decisions and implement changes. By having a better understanding of the 14 life colors we can all develop healthier relationships, choose more satisfying careers, learn more holistically, become better parents, and basically lead more productive, fulfilling lives. We can live more gracefully and peacefully from our essential nature, feeling connected with one another rather than separate, working with one another synergistically rather than struggling and competing against one another.

How the Aura Colors System Works

Now that you've had a chance to learn what the Aura Colors system is, some of its practical applications, and some of the personality traits of each color, you might like to understand how the system works. So, I will discuss the following in turn: (1) the structure of the Aura Colors system, (2) aura color combinations, (3) key points of the Aura Colors system and (4) the red overlay.

The Structure of the Aura Colors System

The 14 aura colors are organized into three major "families" of aura colors - (1) the Physical family, (2) the Mental family, and (3) the Emotional/Spiritual family. Here is a table of the 14 aura colors by aura family:

Physical Aura ColorsMental Aura ColorsEmotional/Spiritual Aura Colors
RedMental TanBlue
MagentaLoving TanViolet
YellowNurturing TanCrystal
Physical Tan Indigo

These three families determine the general way in which each group of colors relates to the environment. The physical family is subdivided into two parts. Reds, Oranges and Magentas deal with life as an externalization of physicality, while Yellows and Physical Tans cope by internalizing in their body the signals and cues they receive from the outer world.

The Physical family of aura colors - RED, ORANGE, MAGENTA, YELLOW, and PHYSICAL TAN - take their cues from the physical environment. Reds, Oranges and Magentas relate to the world by interacting with it physically. Their reality is tangible and they rely primarily on their 5 senses to inform them of their experience; they need to see, hear, taste, touch and smell things to believe in them. Reds, Oranges and Magentas all like to push against reality, in their own unique way.

Yellows and Physical Tans, on the other hand, relate to the world through the physical sensations that are triggered by their internal biochemistry. Yellows and Physical Tans are the most kinesthetic of all the aura colors and experience strong biochemical reactions within their bodies which they experience as gut reactions, surges of energy, or muscle-reflex reactions. They must learn to tune into their body and trust these inner signals.

The Mental family of aura colors - GREEN, MENTAL TAN, LOVING TAN, and NURTURING TAN - base their actions on thoughts and logic. They think about the world and their place in it. They are each cerebral, logical thinkers, in their own unique way. They are happiest when they can play with ideas and mentally understand reality. Their greatest challenge is trying to deal with their emotions logically.

The "TANS," including PHYSICAL TAN from the physical family like a secure, stable, steady, predictable, traditional lifestyle (Loving Tans may not always create it but they want it). Tans are cautious, practical, conservative and prudent in all matters. They are very responsible with money and look for sensible, safe, conservative investments. They prefer to get a regular paycheck from a reliable, well-established company rather than take any unnecessary risks venturing out on their own. They dislike change so occupations that offer them job security and good health and retirement benefits suit them to a tee. All of this is subject to change (and great inner tension!) if the TAN also has a more bold, daring, adventurous, spontaneous, liberal, risk-taking, avant-garde or speculative life color.

The Emotional/Spiritual family of aura colors - BLUE, LAVENDER, VIOLET, CRYSTAL, and INDIGO - base their actions on emotions and intuitions. These five aura colors live in a world of intangibles such as hopes, dreams, wishes, and visions of the future. Emotions, feelings, hunches, intuitions, and abstractions are the currency of their realm. These colors are happiest, most productive, and creative when interacting through their intuitive and emotional faculties rather than through their mental or physical faculties. Spirituality is an integral part of life for these aura colors and is based on an ineffable inner experience of the Divine rather than dogmatic religious belief.

This is extremely helpful information to know in relationships because each of these aura color families (as well as each aura color) has a very different way of perceiving reality and interacting with others. Knowledge of this system can help people to communicate better and appreciate other personality types' capabilities and talents.

Aura Color Combinations

As mentioned in the first section, What is the Aura Colors System?, there are just as many people, if not more, that have two different life colors that don't change throughout life as there are those that have one. One of these life colors is dominant in the person's personality and life goals and the other life color is secondary. For example, person #1 might be a "Yellow/Green" and person #2 might be a "Green/Yellow." Both of these people have Yellow and Green as life colors but for person #1 the life color Yellow is more dominant in his/her personality (although Green is definitely present) and for person #2 the life color Green is more dominant (although Yellow is definitely present). If each of the combination colors are very different in personality from one another, as they are in the above example for Yellow and Green, the person can either use both of the colors' energies well or the person can have severe inner conflicts because of the dissonance between the colors. Someone who is a Green/Yellow could use his/her high intelligence, business acumen, and goal orientation (Green) AND his/her high energy, optimism, and abundant creativity (Yellow) to create just about anything with success. Famous examples of Green/Yellows are Lucille Ball, George Burns, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Donald Trump. On the other hand, a Green/Yellow person could have extreme inner conflicts around business because Greens are usually workaholics who don't know how to relax BUT Yellows do not like to work hard and get bored easily if work is not fun. Can you see how that could create an inner conflict?

People who have two life colors usually have each color in a different aura family. For example, someone may have the life color combination Tan/Yellow. Yellow is a physical color and Tan is a mental color. They belong to different aura families. It happens rarely, but if someone has a life color combination from the same aura family, say Tan/Green, which are both mental colors, then that person feels as though they are living two lifetimes in one (see table below)! 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.

Common Aura Color Combinations (for people who have two life colors)

Key Points of the Aura Colors System

(1) The aura is not reflective of socialization or parenting patterns.
The perceptions of reality and unique attributes of each aura color have nothing to do with how a person was raised by his/her parents or influenced by society at large. Two people with the same aura life color(s) who came from completely different backgrounds and upbringings will share similar proclivities, talents, values and objectives life. A person's life color(s) do not reflect the parents' expectations of the person. So what does the aura represent? See key point number 2.

(2) The aura represents the innate proclivities a child is born with.
Every aura color has its own unique: approach to reality, values, mental attitude, emotional makeup, social and relating style, leadership style, attitudes concerning money, moral and ethical attitudes, and natural gifts and talents to offer the world that would most likely lead to professional success and fulfillment. Once people know their aura colors they can go about honing their innate gifts and talents into skills. The aura is the external indicator of the potential within one's soul.

(3) There are no "better than" or "worse than" aura colors. Each are necessary and important.
Every aura color has strengths and weaknesses. The purpose of this website is to give people tools to enhance and make use of their strengths and to learn from or turn to others for guidance to minimize their weaknesses. I believe that each of us has our unique role to play in life and by knowing our strengths we can focus on being our best selves. If we could all learn to work together, each contributing our unique piece to the puzzle, the possibility of everyone living a meaningful, fulfilling, interdependent life could be made real.

(4) Each color in the auric spectrum can vary greatly in hue and value.
The more a person is expressing the unique gifts and talents of his/her aura colors the richer and more luminous the colors in his/her aura will be. People who are in good physical, mental, and emotional health have clear, bright colors. Conversely, the aura colors of people that are emotionally withdrawn or have given up on life tend to fade into thin pastel washes. Depression, anger, and self-pity tend to muddy the auric colors.

(5) The aura is multidimensional. It has size, shape, texture, sound and emits flow patterns.
Some people's auras are thick, large in size and full of information while others' are thin and small in size indicating lives that are undernourished and unfulfilling. The shape of the aura shows the general health and well-being of an individual. It shows areas of the body where an individual holds stress. A thick textured aura indicates the ability to search within oneself for information to solve one's own problems. The aura also has a flow pattern or direction in which the molecules of light flow. An active pattern means that a person has a positive attitude toward life and is engaging life in a healthy way. Every aura also emits a high-pitched humming sound. These are the components of the aura that combine to create a symbolic language that can be interpreted by someone that sees auras and knows this language.

The Red Overlay

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 life 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 the person off from people, 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.

  • Reasons for adding the Red Overlay are various but they all occurred in early childhood.
    1. There may have been a life threatening situation (choking, nearly drowning, suffocating, etc.)
    2. There may have been intense feelings of abandonment or rejection (adoption, parent leaving)
    3. There may have been physical, emotional or mental abuse (sexual abuse, being beaten, alcoholic or verbally abusive parents, even being emotionally smothered, etc.)
  • The child can grow up feeling unsafe, unprotected, and that the world is not a friendly place
  • The Red Overlay is added to the outer bands but needs to be removed for healthy functioning
  • There are three significant ways people can remove the Red Overlay from their aura:
    1. They can visualize erasing the red from their aura and replacing it with another color
    2. They can visualize themselves as an adult taking care of and parenting their little child
    3. They can go to a therapist

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Question #1. I am not the same person I used to be. Does that mean I have changed my life color(s)?

Answer: No, it is not very likely that you have changed your life colors because they are so ingrained in your basic personality but the bands outside the life color(s) can and do change frequently (with differing moods, health, and states of consciousness), especially those bands furthest away from the life colors which change most frequently. You may have added another color to your aura if your life circumstances have changed or you deliberately changed them yourself. For example, if you are having to focus on making more money to pay your bills and feed your family or you want to buy a new house or car then you will naturally invoke more Green into your outer aura as you become more driven, hardworking, and focused on making money. If you are very angry at someone red will show up in your outer aura for the duration of your anger. You may have taken on more of the characteristics of your second life color if you have a combination of life colors. Another possibility is that you have learned how to use your life color(s) in a more positive and balanced way and hence it may seem you are not the same person you used to be. I'm not saying you can't change your life color(s) because ultimately we are all spiritual beings with free will so anything is possible. I'm just saying that it is very rare.

Question #2. Is it possible for me to learn to see auras or is that just a natural gift of psychics?

Answer: We are all capable of seeing auras with the proper training and there are basically four different steps:

  1. Willingness and desire to see auras
  2. Learning to quiet the mind and trust what you see (this is an especially important step for the mental life colors who tend to doubt their intuitive abilities and rely on logic)
  3. Practice, practice, practice!
  4. Acknowledgment and gratitude

One way you can start is to have a friend stand in front of a white background (a wall for example) and just stare above and beyond your friend's head. After a short time you should be able to see a soft white glow around your friend's body (this is not a white life color. See question #3 below). The key is to trust what your higher self is allowing you to see. Fear will hold you back so let go of any inhibitions or concerns about what other people will think.

Question #3. Are there any other colors in the aura besides the 14 life colors described?

Answer: Yes, there are 3 other colors that can show up in a person's aura. They are gold, white, and pink. Gold is a very high vibration and can show up as a life color in an extremely evolved spiritual person, such as Jesus or Sathya Sai Baba. Since these people are so rare I have not included gold as a life color. Pink can show up in the outer bands of someone who has an intense desire for love and romance but it is never a life color. The color white inside a person's life color(s) (closest to the body) simply means that a major life question has been answered for that person. The more white next to the body the more questions have been answered. If a major life question has been asked but is unanswered as of yet the white will be just outside the life color(s). The most commonly asked major life questions have to do with the existence and nature of God and/or our purpose for being here on Earth.

Question #4. I have heard that people lose their auras just before they die. Is that true?

Answer: Yes, people know when they are about to die on a spiritual level and their aura does fade to nothing before the life force is withdrawn. Faded auras can also indicate a serious illness and a lack of life force energy circulating through the body as well as a desire to leave the physical body.

Question #5. Do animals have auras?

Answer: That's a very good question and the answer is yes! However, animals have different aura colors than people do. Animals have either silver blue auras meaning they know they are animals or they have golden yellow auras which means they think they are humans. The only exception is dolphins that have the same aura colors as humans do. That is why they are so intelligent and have such diverse personalities.

Question #6. I know that countries have karma just like individuals. Do countries have aura colors just like individuals?

Answer: No, not technically but different geographical locations attract certain aura colors more than others. For example, Yellows are bright, cheery people with active, sunny, dispositions and liberal beliefs so naturally they are drawn to sunny climates with lots of outdoor activities for them to participate in and a culture that is open-minded and tolerant of different beliefs. They also get cold easily so warm climates are important for them. Places such as Australia, Hawaii, and Southern California attract a lot of Yellows. Violets are dramatic, passionate, insatiably curious people who want to teach, preach, uplift and inspire others with their visions so they are attracted to places with awe-inspiring scenery, crowds of people, as well as diverse cultural, political, and spiritual events to broaden their horizons. Paris, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Washington D.C. are some of the cities that Violets are especially drawn to. Greens like to live in larger cities that focus on finance, investing, stock broking, big business, entrepreneurship, and other ways of making money. Germany, Japan, Northeastern U.S., and especially New York are just some of the areas that Greens are drawn to. Obviously Lavenders and Crystals prefer to live away from the hustle and bustle of city life and like to retreat to quiet, simple, pretty areas like the country. Kauai is one of the more secluded islands in Hawaii that would especially appeal to Lavenders and Crystals. Oranges need to live where they can participate in their favorite extreme sports or activities, like the Colorado mountains, while Tans want to live in traditional, conservative, safe and secure environments like the Midwest U.S. Magentas like to live in big, diverse cities on the cutting edge of trends and creativity where they can be outrageous and still fit in. Los Angeles and San Francisco are two cities where Magentas might feel most at home.

Question #7. What is Kirlian photography?

Answer: Kirlian photography refers to a form of photogram made with a high voltage. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a source of high voltage, small corona discharges (created by the strong electric field at the edges of the object) create an image on the photographic plate. Most people think of "aura photography" as Kirlian photography but Kirlian photography is completely different from aura photography, in which a colorful image is produced of a person's face and upper torso by interpreting galvanic skin responses and adding color to the photograph using a printer. The images made with an aura camera do not result from coronal discharge. In aura photography, no high voltage is involved as with the Kirlian technique, and no direct contact with the film is made. Aura photography is used to study the high-frequency energy fields known as the aura. The originally purpose was to document the phenomenon of electromagnetic energy that emanates from all living organisms and provide some evidence that something larger than just the physical body exists. A Kirlian machine that takes photographs can be purchased for about $20,000 (2008). A Kirlian picture is often used as: (1) a diagnostic tool to find out the root causes of diseases, (2) a tool for the observation of physical and emotional changes - even old ones, and (3) a tool to immediately confirm and check the effectiveness of a treatment used.
