What is a colorless aura?

An aura is an energetic field that surrounds living things. It is invisible to most people, but some claim to be able to see auras as colorful light around a person. A colorless aura is when someone’s aura lacks color and vibrancy. There are a few potential causes and meanings behind a colorless aura.

What Is An Aura?

An aura is a subtle energy field that surrounds the body. It emanates from the chakra system, which are centers of energy in the body according to ancient traditions. The aura extends outward from the body for several feet. It is comprised of electromagnetic energy as well as more subtle energy vibrations.

Since auras are made of energy wavelengths along the light spectrum, some people are able to see them. The most common colors associated with auras are the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each color has a particular meaning and signifies something about the person. For example, red auras symbolize passion, energy and vitality. Blue auras are linked to calmness, tranquility and spirituality.

Most people are unable to physically see auras with their eyes. However, aura photography and Kirlian photography can capture energized particles that reveal aura colors around living things. With practice, some people can start to see auras by looking at the air around a person’s body.

Causes of a Colorless Aura

So what does it mean if someone’s aura is transparent, colorless or appears grey? There are a few potential causes:

– Fatigue – When someone is physically or emotionally drained, it can dim their aura and make it appear colorless temporarily. The aura may flicker back with rest.

– Poor Health – A serious illness or chronic disease may lead to reduced energy flow in the body. This disruption can strip the aura of vibrancy.

– Depression – Long-term sadness and depression often manifest as a colorless aura. The gloomy emotional state mutes the person’s natural energy field.

– Trauma – Past emotional or physical trauma may damage the aura and cause dullness or gaps where the energy flow has been interrupted.

– Lack of Spirituality – Those who lack spiritual grounding or connection to a higher purpose often have auras that are fainter and more colorless.

– Blocked Chakras – When one or more chakras are blocked, it prevents the full flow of energy throughout the aura leading to less vibrancy.

– Psychic Attack – Some believe the aura can be intentionally penetrated and damaged through the psychic attack of another person sending negative energy.

– Aura Shielding – If someone is intentionally shielding their aura for privacy reasons, it may appear colorless and opaque.

Meanings of a Colorless Aura

Besides the potential causes, a colorless aura can also reflect certain states of being:

– Fatigue – As mentioned, fatigue will show up in the aura by making it appear washed out and colorless. This may reflect physical exhaustion.

– Depression – A long-term depressed mood often manifests in the aura becoming a colorless grey. This reflects the internal gloomy state.

– Lack of Energy – When the body is lacking in vitality, the aura loses its vibrancy and appears transparent or pale. This reflects the diminished energetic state.

– Disconnection – A colorless aura may reflect inner disconnection from self, life’s meaning or spirituality in general. The aura is subtler due to this lack of connection.

– Protection – Some purposefully shield their auras to protect their energies. This can make the aura appear almost invisible or non-vibrant.

– Transitioning – During major life changes and transitions, the aura often loses color and clarity temporarily. This reflects the “in between” state.

How to See Your Own Aura

While a small percentage of people can see auras naturally, anyone can develop the ability with practice. Here are some tips for seeing your own aura:

– Get in front of a plain, light background – this makes it easier to see. A mirror, white wall or nature background works well.

– Position your hands in front of you. Spread your fingers apart. Gaze gently at the area around your fingers and hand edges.

– Let your eyes relax and gaze softly without straining. Avoid focusing on one spot.

– Be patient and relaxed. Scanning your peripheral vision can help detect subtle shifts.

– Look for a very faint glow or transparent outline radiating from your skin. This may appear and disappear.

– Once an aura is detected, trace its shape. Note any colors, changes or gaps.

– Practice daily by gazing at your hands, arms and head area. Consistency will build aura viewing skill.
