(this post is still quite popular, so I thought I would re-post it)
Have you ever wondered what color your aura is, or maybe you wondered about someone else—someone such as your spouse, child, parent, or friend? Well, here’s a way to “see” at least part of it.
No, really—I’m serious. If you know someone fairly well, such as a spouse or even yourself, you probably know what their favorite color is. So, let’s say your favorite color is blue and you always manage to wear some article of clothing in that color—shirt, slacks, tie, socks, something. Then one morning, you notice yourself reaching for the red tie instead of the blue one.
The first thing you need to question is your state of mind. Are you angry? Did you get up late and so are upset, feeling hectified? Did you have trouble sleeping or maybe you missed your morning coffee?
Two things will push someone to reach for something red, if it isn’t their “normal” every day color: emotional upset (anger, frustration, etc.) and illness. So, if you’re not angry or upset, and you really want to wear red (and not just because it looks jaunty with your new tan slacks), then take a moment to really check out how you feel (even something as small as a minor toothache can be telegraphed this way). It might even be that the body is trying to fight off a cold or flu virus and you’re not even consciously aware of it (yet). There’s no fever, no sore throat, but the body knows there’s something wrong, and it is already trying to warn you.
Now, maybe instead of your usual blue, you really feel like wearing brown. That’s a good indicator that you’re either physically tired or emotionally withdrawn. In fact, here’s a quick little chart to help you identify what your color choices might mean:
|Color||Emotional Meaning||Physical/Mental Meaning|
|Pink||Childlike||Beginnings of illness/Immaturity|
|Brown||Withdrawn/inhibited/need for solitude||Tired/Mildly depressed|
|Purple||Otherworldly/Spiritual||Balanced/Objective or Sensible|
|Yellow||Bubbly/Full of life||Energized/Animated|
|Orange||Forceful/Ready to take charge||Enduring/Determined|
|Green||Caring/Empathic||Healthy or Healing/Understanding|
Noting your favorite color can also indicate which chakra you work through. For instance, if your favorite color is white, lavender, or purple, you’re primarily working with the energies from your crown chakra.
|Purple or White||Crown/Spiritual center|
|Blue||Third eye/Intellectual center|
|Red||Base/Instinctual (physical) center|
So, what color are you wearing today?
(And just in case anyone is interested, my favorite color has always been purple;-)
