Everything You Need to Know About Aura Readings
Last summer I saw someone post an instagram picture of their aura reading. It was the first time I had seen anything like it. So of course I researched until I found a place in Los Angeles that held popup aura readings. They were having one in a crystal shop in Los Feliz so I booked two slots and dragged Matty along with me.
My aura was RED. Undeniably red. A color I have never really liked. Matty's was shades of blue, violet and green. I didn't know what it meant but I knew mine couldn't possibly be red, hello I don't like red.
Well one year later I booked two more appointments with a different aura reading company. I had seen people post about their auras changing color from year to year, month to month. So I was hopeful I'd have a different shade this time. My best friend went first and her aura can only be described as a magical unicorn, ironic because that is not her vibe at all. I went next, and you guessed it, red again. This time the girl said that this was my true aura, my energy signature. This wasn't my first time, this was my second, a year apart, my aura is red and that probably won't change.
Aura Color Meaning
There is a ton of well researched information you can find on aura readings. Click here for a more in depth look. Below is a brief overview of the aura color meanings.
Matty's blues and violets reflect his artistic nature and love of learning and teaching. Lauren's kaleidoscope of colors represent her free loving, artistic side while speaking to her eccentric and playful nature. My red represents passionate and independence. My zodiac sign, Sagittarius, is also described as being independent. I never see that in myself. But this time, the woman reading my aura explained it as a will to get things done, if I know something needs to be done, I'll do it, I won't wait on anyone else. And that describes me to a T. My dad always says, Hosmer's get shit done. If I know something needs to be done, I am doing it. I'm not resting, I'm not waiting around, I'm getting it done and checking that box.
What can you expect at an aura reading?
Here's a break down of what to expect when you get to your aura reading. You enter a geode tent, sit on a stool, place your hands on two hand sensors that read your body's electromagnetic energy, then sit, facing the camera and wait as the double exposure develops. You hold your pose and a few seconds later, the film develops to show your aura.
Then, you sit for your reading. They explain the colors and their meaning. It feels like a psychic session and a therapy session all in the span of 5 minutes. You leave with a renewed sense of self.
To me, having an aura reading is a form of self love and self reflection. In this last reading I learned more about myself and finally feel like my aura represents me. I don't know if that makes sense, but it felt like I was doing something for my mental health and like my aura was guiding me to see the things I need to see in myself. Plus, you get an awesome picture!
Where can you find an aura reading?
Lauren and I had our reading at Auragami LA and I cannot recommend them enough. The space is decorated beautifully, the girls running in are thoughtful and really take their time talking to you, it was just an amazing experience.
I've also had aura readings with Halo Aura Portraits, another great experience. Both these companies are based in LA but you can find one in your city by searching Yelp or Instagram.
