How Aura You?

At least once in every lifetime, everyone should have a photograph of their aura taken.

Click on the link at the bottom of this post if you would like to see mine.

That’s what I was thinking when my friend Eva, daughter Gigi and I went to the Midwest Lightworker’s Conference ( in the Chicago suburbs a week or so back.  Among the more interesting displays was the aura imaging booth staffed by Dianne Reddington (, an aura image consultant.  Amid booths filled with crystals, healing music, books and other what-nots, we gravitated to Dianne and asked her to tell us about auras and how she got into the business.  She was a fascinating study herself — a lifelong home-maker, she wanted to work after her husband passed away and found herself intrigued by photography.  When she stumbled upon an aura camera (not a cheap investment by the way), she knew it was her calling.  As part of her service, she would take our aura photos and then provide a personalized interpretation which we learned was part art and part science since she had been doing this work for nearly 20 years.

We couldn’t resist.  Eva went first and then Gigi.   Each aura photograph and interpretation was remarkably unique.  More importantly, the interpretations seemed to resonate with each of us.

“I do not ever think of people except in connection with their auras; I see them change in my friends and loved ones as time goes by — sickness, dejection, love, fulfillment — these are all reflected in the aura, and for me, the aura is the weather vane of the soul.  It shows which way the winds of destiny are blowing,” wrote the “sleeping prophet” Edgar Cayce (  in his 20-page pamphlet, Auras:  An Essay on the Meaning of Colors ( ).

Now, I’ve also read the converse — that auras are mere quackery, impossible to empirically verify and so forth.  There are many skeptics.  They have interesting and valid points (  But in all things of this ilk there are a couple prerequisites:  The gift of grace and a leap of faith.

Having taken the leap a long, long time ago, I was curious to see what colors were in my aura and of course, what they meant.  In contrast to my daughter’s mostly red aura (and I’ll respect Eva’s privacy and not dish on hers), mine populated with many colors.  Dianne pointed out a muddy yellow blotch in the upper left hand side of my photo.  She correctly opined I must be going through a career transition of some sort, which was dead on the auric money.

“The stronger your aura, the less likely you are to be affected by outside forces,” read the handouts Dianne gave us.  “Weakened auras can result in health problems
and ineffectiveness in many life situations.  Control of your environment begins with control of your energy.”

Not surprisingly, aura colors have lots of meaning.  Meaning of course can only be viewed through the lens of your life.  When you read the general color descriptions
(below) they sound nice but rather general.  The key is in applying the meaning, as Dianne did when she interpreted each of our auras.  Though she downplayed the
possibility, it seemed that Dianne had more than a little intuition in her
interpretations.  She attributed it to her long-held experience.  “I’ve seen it all over the years,” she explained, talking about how some families all have the exact same aura colors because of their group dynamic.

Our auras photographed, interpreted and pocketed, we were ready to move on to explore other aspects of the conference.  Have I shared with you the true reason for the pyramids?  That might make for another post.
