Your Aura is the layer energy field that surrounds your physical body. It acts as a magnetic field of energy picking up vibrational energies that are all around you.

An aura is considered healthy when it has brighter healthier shades of all chakras and no dark patchy shades of black, grey, or brown.

Due to this continuous exchange of energies, you may feel stressed, anxious, irritated, lethargic, impatient, and even develop a negative outlook towards the world. Your health and immune system start to degrade making you susceptible to various infections and ailments.
