What Is an Aura? ~ a Poem

What is an Aura?



The poem is based on research, the philosophy of aura according to Sadhguru, and my personal opinion.


Aura— Every one of us has this energy field.

Sometimes they also call it ‘Spiritual or Human Aura’

A manifestation of energy: a luminous body~

Surrounding our physical body,

From all sides.


What is an Aura? — It is directly connected ~

to the energy vortices of the body,

the seven chakras….


The colors of the aura: can be seen as originating from the chakras.

Color is a universal language — it is very simple, but

Very deep language, it speaks ~ volumes.


Psychology has a branch: “Color Psychology”,

that specifically teaches about the colors, and how it impacts human 

Emotionally — the play of colors is interesting, isn’t it?


The Chakra also has colors. The colors that bind us with this universe.

The color of a chakra, what do these colors indicates?

These colors indicate — your current physical, emotional, and

Spiritual state. Interesting, isn’t it?


The colors of aura — a journey through the seven chakra colors ~

Like a journey through the rainbow:  

Red, yellow, orange, green, indigo, blue, and violet (or white).

And then blending in, making a form.


What its form looks like: an egg-shaped field — around the body.

It’s a piece of Emerging scientific evidence from the field of Quantum Physics~

Proving that we are all ‘interconnected.


Now science can prove: We are not separate beings, but rather individuated beings.

How does this individuation occur? —

through the conditioning of society,

Through the old ~ Newtonian perspective of reality.


Too many philosophies and researches are there on the topic of

‘Human Aura’. A lot of them are claimed to be fictional.


Now you must be thinking: have you ever experienced the Human Aura?

Yes, you did… all of us have experienced it. How?

Have you ever turned around,

Only to find out that someone was staring at you? Have you ever? ~

What was that?


You feel pleasant and peaceful in someone’s presence, while

With some people around you, you can feel drained too.

Sometimes you can sense how someone is feeling—

If you have felt such things, you’ve experienced— the auric field of another person.

You can claim you’ve experienced: Interconnectedness.


I watched a YouTube video of Sadhguru last night,

his philosophy on Aura was such a delight. He said something very interesting about Aura~

Every substance on this planet has a certain field of energy around it.

Every substance you see on the planet is energy,

our very existence is an energy — a scientific fact it is:

The whole existence is energy.


The energy of two types. One: a part of the energy that manifested itself into a certain reverberation —

It takes a physical form. The second one: didn’t manifest itself—

It doesn’t have a physical form or refuses to have a physical form,

but still has some kind of form: is an Aura.


He claims one can carry a black aura to a pure white aura~

Between these two colors — a million shades.

Don’t try to see people’s aura. It is the periphery of the person


Try to look at the core of the being. The aura is the surface— not

Something a spiritual seeker should be interested in.

An aura— more superficial than the skin.


Now you may ask,

Why more superficial than the skin? It is because it’s even further out.

According to the guru’s philosophy:

People who look at the core of others have a wonderful aura.

Now, what do I think: You are a magnet. Who lives on a bigger magnet —

A magnet we all call ‘Earth.’


The people around you are also magnets:

They have poles — North and South, and

you, too, have ~

With a few you attract — with some you repel ~ phew!
