There are energetic bubbles surrounding living and non-living things, known as auras. The aura among living beings includes state of being, health, emotional and mental health, and personality for humans.
Yes, the aura can show the nature of humans. When it comes to the aura of inanimate objects, the aura is influenced by who has been in contact with it and the environment. You see the state of any being or object through colors, and the colors tell you what is happening within.
Auras can evolve, especially if you develop new personality traits. Still, there is always one dominant color, and other colors represent situations that affect you in life. First, I will talk about an aura color that no one is born with: the black aura. The black aura is not associated with any of the seven chakras.
Here is an aura that is one of the few that is negative, and this does not mean that if you have the black aura, you are evil or a bad person. Instead, it means you are dealing with many negative emotions, and they are taking over you.
Depression, resentment, and grief are the leading causes for a black aura to be predominant.
For example, if you have a diagnosis of clinical depression, that does not mean your aura is black if you are feeling well and keeping the condition in control. However, if you have a depressive relapse to the point that you are so sad and numb that you cannot function, you will have a predominantly black aura.
In fact, any illness that is taking over your ability to function and compromising your mental health will cause your aura to become primarily black.
If you also have a predominantly black aura, your chakras likely have imbalances and blockages too. Even if you don’t have any medical diagnoses playing a role in the black aura, having a negative state of mind, or being in the thick of your grief will significantly darken your aura. And you may wonder if you have a black aura and if it will stay that way for good.
The good news is, yes, you can change it. The black aura is not like an essential personality trait aura, which means it will not last forever because aura colors do evolve and make shifts. You have to remember that the wellness of your soul, emotions, and how spiritually awake you are will influence the aura color.
Black is not a natural color for an aura as it is more masking. Therefore, if you have a black aura, that is a sign that something is entirely wrong, causing you to be so negative.
The black color stifles your dominant natural color and other colors in your aura. The best thing to do is to be honest with yourself, and you will realize that you are not emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and even physically in a good place. The black aura means it is a sign you need to address what is causing it, and perhaps a change in medication that you are on or having some therapy and doing activities to brighten your soul will help shift the darkness out of your aura. Let’s delve into more of how you can address the black aura.
Always remember that you will have a black aura when you are dealing with grief, a depressive slope, or insurmountable stress. Once there is a relief, it will dissipate. Eventually, distressing factors that play a role in it will lose their potency, and that is when you will find that the black aura also dissipates as you begin to feel like your old self.
However, if you are afraid that you may have a black aura that does not leave and is more static, that is when you must address it.
Some things can keep you in that “black hole,” as you may feel that way. For example, if you are holding a grudge over someone who hurt you, that was not apologetic or remorseful, and your anger and resentment over it are having a significant impact on your life, that will cause a black aura to become more static. The best thing to do is to let the resentment go, not for them, but for you.
You don’t have to forgive if you don’t want to, as there are ways to move forward from the grudge without forgiving them. See them for who they are, and their lack of accountability makes them unkind and non-empathetic. Have a mental funeral, and the best thing is for your health, don’t give them a second thought. It will be challenging to do at first since the grudge you may have held has been long-lasting.
However, the one person who you should forgive is yourself, and if you don’t forgive yourself, then that will create a black aura that is more static. Forgive yourself for making the wrong choices that caused you to miss your dreams. Forgive yourself for being a people-pleaser if that is why you missed the boat with your goals.
And forgive yourself for not having the wisdom you do now, as painful experiences are the only way to gain that kind of wisdom. If you cannot forgive yourself because of a lot of trauma and blame yourself for it, that will create a black aura.
That also will impact your lifestyle choices, as it can cause you to eat poorly, sleep badly, and be more sedentary as you struggle with low self-esteem. You will likely be able only to address it and work through it by getting professional help. Trauma healing is hard work and is not something you can do alone—unhealed trauma causes a static black aura. And unlike other colors, there are no shades of black, but black tinges or murky colors can add more negativity to your natural aura.
Suppose your aura is not black, but the dominant color is a dark color of the natural color of your aura. In that case, you still face many negative energies and emotions even though it is not entirely dominating you. For example, if your dominant aura color is red, you are passionate and physical.
But if it is murky, you also struggle with misused anger, resentment, and vengeance. If your dominant aura is blue, you are expressive, communicative, calm, and sensitive. However, if the blue aura is cloudy or murky, then fear is associated with your ability to express yourself. And you hold onto a lot of negativity about yourself and the thoughts of others too. Those are several examples of how dark hues will hurt your aura, even if it is not entirely black.
The black aura is not a natural color; it results from negativity in your life taking hold of you. I will leave you some resources that can help you brighten up your aura and remove the darkness:
