We all have a style, whether we think we do or not. In addition, we are all judged on the way we look, whether we think we are or not. The way you dress somehow reflects your personality. While it could be argued that people dress for particular purposes, such as to impress or fit in, there will always be details within those ensembles that are chosen, either consciously or subconsciously, that somehow reflect an aspect of the person that has chosen them.
However, there is a school of though that suggests the way you dress can respect deeper aspects of yourself; the way you dress can reflect the colours of your aura and, in turn, can actually affect your destiny.
What is the Aura?
The aura is thought to be an energy field that surrounds the physical body. It is often described as an electro-magnetic field generated by our organs and the mind. It is generally made up of different colours, each representing a different aspect of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Those who read auras believe they can diagnose problems by looking at the spread of colours within the aura’s spectrum. In order to understand how the colours we choose to wear, we must have an understanding of the colours of the aura and what it is they represent.
Colours of the Aura
● Red is the colour associated with energy, fire and creative force. It can indicate strong passion, a strong mind, but is also associated with negative emotions, such as hate and anger. People who wear this colour are often seen as dynamic and creative, but they can also be seen as overbearing, stubborn and argumentative.
● Orange is the colour of warmth, creativity and the emotions. It tends to suggest that those with this colour prominent in their auras are imaginative and sensitive. Those who wear this colour are often perceived to be creative types. In turn, they may not be seen as particularly practical, being more suited as ‘idea people’. In addition, they may be seen as over-sensitive.
● Yellow indicates optimism and constant mental activity. More muted shades of yellow tend to reflect a fearsome intellect and insatiable curiosity. People who wear yellow tend to be those who are thought to be easy to be around and have a harmonious effect on those in their orbit. They are also perceived as being wise and are often sought out for advice.
● Green reflects spiritual growth, compassion and calm. It also suggests the presence of compassion and sensitivity within an individual. Because of its association with the colours of nature, those who wear green are often seen as peace-loving people and most tend to react favourably to the colour. Those wearing this colour often find themselves singled out as life’s ‘listeners’; theirs are the shoulders that people tend to cry on. However, this is the result of their innate abilities to care and empathise, rather than a feeling of connection with the natural world.
● Blue is a confusing colour. On one hand, it reflects a person’s inner calm and quiet. It also reflects their seriousness, intuitive abilities and a well-functioning moral compass. Those with plenty of blue in their auras often seem possessed of an uncanny ability to read others, often bordering on an apparent telepathic ability. However, deeper shades of blue tend to reflect emotional and spiritual stagnation. While those who wear blue are often thought to be upstanding and clear-thinking individuals, they can also be perceived as being aloof, distant and condescending.
● Violet is the colour of adaptability and change. Those with violet in their auras tend to follow their hearts, rather than their heads, and those who favour his colour in their clothing can be seen as unpredictable and untrustworthy. It is a colour often worn by those in the public eye, such as musicians and actors.
Although these are the main colours in the spectrum of an aura, there are others. The qualities that they represent are also reflected when you choose to wear them in your clothing. As a result, people will draw conclusions about you and make professional, romantic and fiscal decisions based on those conclusions. While it is important that we all have the opportunity to express ourselves through the clothes we wear, you may want to look at the associations with certain colours and, in particular situations, amend what you wear – possibly to your best advantage.
Other colours that feature in the spectrum and in our wardrobes are:
● Pink. This colour reflects our capacity for love, compassion and appreciation of physical aesthetics, such as in art and music. Those who wear this colour are often seen as quiet and modest but, if the shade of pink is a deeper one, it can be taken as a sign of immaturity.
● Whilst seen by many as a status symbol, in auric terms the colour gold represents a state of flux. It tends to suggest that the individual may be on the cusp of great spiritual insight, but are still going through the final stages of rationalisation. As a consequence, those who wear this colour are seen in extremes; they are either perceived as bold, vivacious and fun-loving or insensitive, aggressive and with little self-awareness.
● More often than not, white is seen in association with other colours. However, if it is seen on its own in aura, it tends to represent truth and purity. While it has virginal and naïve associations in clothing, it can also be seen as an icy veneer. While also tends to accentuate other colours and so should be worn with care.
● Black in an aura is often, mistakenly, thought to represent an oncoming illness or mental trauma. More accurately, however it represents a desire for self-protection. In clothing, this can be transmitted and black can be seen as being worn by those who have something to hide and can often be intimidating or make the wearer seem unapproachable.
