The Difference Between Chakras And Auras
It’s easy to become confused about the concepts of aura and chakra, and use them interchangeably. In fact, many experts online seem to do that as well and that can mislead people who want to know more about them. While auras and chakras are connected, they’re not exactly the same and it’s important to understand the difference if you want to get a good reading of aura or chakra. The difference between the two concepts is easy to understand and is explained below.
A Brief Introduction to Chakra
The concept of chakra has become popular recently in the western countries but it has been around for centuries. There are extensive studies and comprehensive texts written on it so all the knowledge we have today is based on research and in-depth understanding. Chakra isn’t a form of energy but rather a portal that directs the energy that exists within the body to different areas. If all the chakras are balanced, the flow of energy is smooth and uniform.
If the chakras aren’t balanced, the flow of energy is disrupted and you feel distressed, anxious, and face a number of physical and mental health issues. Everyone has 7 chakra portals in their body and they are mentioned below:
- Red – Root or Muladhara chakra.
- Orange – Sacral or Svadhisthana chakra.
- Yellow – Solar plexus or Manipura chakra.
- Green – Heart or Anahata chakra.
- Blue – Throat or Vishuddha chakra.
- Indigo – Third eye or Anja chakra.
- Violet – Crown or Sahaswara chakra.
These chakra portals are perfectly aligned from the bottom to the top and when you sit with your back straight, they will form a single line. The chakras are made of energy as will but they’re constant and will not alter in nature.
A Brief Introduction to Aura
Aura is the energy that exudes from your body and surrounds you. Some of the energy that’s circulated by the chakras will escape from the cycle and radiate from your body. That energy can take the form of a visible aura. As this is the energy that’s produced by your body and mind, it accurately represents your mental and physical state.
Everything from your personality to your current mood is reflected in your aura, so if you feel cheerful and happy, your aura will be bright and vibrant. If you feel downtrodden and ill, your aura will be clouded, muddy, and depressing. Because your aura spreads around out of your body, it will impact your surroundings as well.
If you’re depressed, the negative aura will affect your loved ones and colleagues. Aura colors correspond with chakra colors as well so most auras will have red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet or purple hues as well. The brightness and vibrancy of the colors will indicate just how healthy your aura is.
As you can see, chakras and auras are interconnected but also quite different. You need to understand both of these concepts if you truly want understand your spiritual energies.
