Ever entered a room full of unfamiliar faces and immediately felt comfortable in someone’s presence?

It is difficult to put a finger on it, but there’s something about a few people we meet that makes us feel right at home.

The secret lies in their aura.

As cosmic beings, we all exude energy and are surrounded by a spherical field, which is called an aura. There are various types of auras that a person can project depending on their surroundings and reactions to circumstances.

While not visible to the naked eye, auras vary in color and intensity, sometimes even showing up in a combination of different colors.

An aura reader can photograph an individual’s aura and provide an interpretation of the result. This may help provide insight into one’s emotional and spiritual state, giving instant validation.

Don’t go grabbing that iPhone as ordinary cameras are not able to capture auras. There are special cameras created for this purpose that capture the energy colors surrounding an individual.

Believed to be portals to a mystical realm, auras are unconsciously one of the first things we observe in others.

In the entire aura spectrum, the purple aura is considered to be the most spiritual. It is also one that does not easily shift as others, making it one of the most powerful.
