It’s a common misconception that chakras and auras are two different names for the same energy. That’s simply not true: chakras and auras are different. That said, they are connected, and they can influence each other. Here’s everything you need to know.
Please note: This article is written based on people’s belief in metaphysics.
What are chakras?
In Sanskrit, the word chakra means “wheel.” So, many people visualize chakras as circles and describe them as vibrating or spinning energy centers.
Eastern traditions hold that chakras exist in the places where the physical and the spiritual bodies connect. There are seven chakras in our body, each with its own dedicated color. The chakras have fixed locations, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. They don’t move. You can consider them gateways that control and direct spiritual energy.
What are auras?
Auras are different. While chakras and energy are present inside your body, an aura is present around it.
An aura is like a field around your body that emits energy outward instead of channeling it inward. Auras always have seven layers and emit different colors that are thought to reflect your personality, mood, and general health.
Do chakras and auras influence each other?
Yes, they do. Your energy can never be fully contained. Invariably, it will escape your body and enter your surroundings. While we believe that the energy within your body is controlled and directed by chakras, some of it does leak out and form an aura around us. This is not a bad thing! It’s simply part of being alive.
If there’s a disturbance in your chakras, the leaked energy will corrupt your aura. If you’re surrounded by a corrupt aura, it will influence the chakras. This is a cycle that would keep going until you balance your aura.
How do you correct a problem with your chakras and auras?
You need to know where the imbalance exists before you start treating it. You can get your chakras and auras examined by a professional aura reader and ask them for their opinions. They will offer the right solutions to cleanse your aura and correct chakra imbalances. However, if you’re reluctant to approach a professional, you can always try a few home remedies to cleanse your aura and balance your chakra.
Here’s what you can do:
Your food gives you energy so is it really surprising that bad food can have an impact on your chakra and aura? A healthy, home-cooked meal will help keep your aura clean and chakra balanced. We understand that it’s not always possible to eat well, but if the majority of your diet is clean and healthy food, you may see a marked difference in your aura.

Keep your environment stress free.
You can calm the environment of your home by burning some aromatherapy candles. You can also create a quiet room in your home where you can relax and have some time to yourself. Keep stress-relieving resources around, such as a sketchbook and herbal teas. Excessive noise might have an impact on your comfort and might add to your stress. Noise can also influence your chakras and auras.
Also, there’s almost nothing that will elevate your stress levels more than conflict in your relationships. Don’t be afraid to talk to your friends and loved ones about your desire to live a more stress-free life. Simply communicating about what helps you relieve stress can be a great way to do it while also building healthier relationships.
Meditation is an age-old practice that has proven its effectiveness over the years. It’s very easy to learn and adapt them to your lifestyle. Just 20 minutes of meditation every day, can keep stress at bay and keep your mind healthy. It will also help stabilize your aura and chakra because it slowly corrects imbalances in your spiritual energy.
There are other things like salt water baths and smudging that can help cleanse your aura.
