I have done many amazing things this year that I never thought I’d actually do. It was around this time last year when I started conceiving the idea for my new thing everyday list, and I enjoyed dreaming of all sorts of things, big and small, that I could include. It’s fair to say, that reading an aura was never on that list.
I decided to do it today to tie in with International Aura Awareness Day, and to be honest, I needed something quick and easy after a busy few days. I have definitely ventured into some ‘out there’ things this year to satisfy my curiosity: I’ve tried reiki, hypnotism, cacao ceremonies and Ayurveda to name a few. All of these things I’ve tried to go in with an open mind, despite being sceptical, and have generally found something rewarding from it. I couldn’t do that with reading auras.
Auras are apparently “spiritual energy fields” that surround every living thing. Every plant, animal, and human supposedly has an aura ranging in different colours that respond to the 7 chakras. If you’ve got a bit lost reading that this article from Mind Body Green explains it all a lot better than I can.
I needed a bit of guidance in auras, having never considered them before, so turned to my favourite teaching guide, YouTube (seriously, is there anything you can’t learn from there?!) and watched a nice British lady explain what to look out for.
I followed all the instructions and gamely attempted to read my husband’s aura for around 5 or 10 minutes, before asking him if he could read mine. It was a wild Saturday night at our place folks!
Yes, I’m sceptical, but I’m always open to being proven wrong. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen in this case, and neither of us managed to read any auras. This sort of thing isn’t for me, but I don’t begrudge anybody else who goes for it as it seems like a relatively harmless thing to believe in. With that being said, after satisfying my curiosity today, I won’t be thinking about reading auras ever again.
