Since other people have described this way better than I could, I took an excerpt from MindBodyGreen:
The aura has long been described as an electromagnetic energy field that surrounds people—like an egg-shaped ball of energy that encompasses the body. The aura consists of seven levels/layers/auric bodies, also known as the physical, astral, lower, higher, spiritual, intuitional, and absolute planes.
Interesting…and confusing at the same time. So I then looked up this super cute way to explain it from wikiHow. <<< But hold on. Before you read that explanation, take this super fun quiz and then see if it really feels spot on to you!
The aura is an energy field that surrounds humans and ALL living things. It’s believed that the aura reflects a person’s thoughts and feelings! Are you ready to find out the color of your aura?
