There is a distinct difference between the dominant primary and the fluctuating secondary colors seen in the aura. Red, Yellow, Green and Blue are the most common and prominent colors seen in the aura. Other colors like purple, gold, turquoise and brown are not as dominant as a long lasting color in the aura field. They are most often seen periodically, such as; when a person is experiencing a strong emotion such as love, undergoing a healing, or experiencing depression. Other colors indicate that the person is experiencing a spiritual connection and awakening.
Purple, violet or lavender in the aura is such a lovely sight to see. In most cases, the person is connecting with the spiritual realms and building on their intuition and spiritual connection and it is one of the highest levels of auric vibrations in the human aura. It is assumed that if someone is psychic, that they are receiving energy through their sixth (third-eye) chakra. While this is accurate, there is more here than meets the “eye”, literally. Each chakra and energy field builds upon the next, beginning with the first chakra and continuing up the spine of the body until it reaches the sixth chakra. When the portals of each chakra have opened enough to raise energy to the sixth chakra, the effect is the ability to “see” beyond the veil and receive information flowing from the higher planes.
What is not often discussed, is that there is a great variety in how open this area can be and depending upon how clear the energy is in this area, it determines how much information comes into the energy field to be received. People with psychic ability do not have to be spiritual in order to obtain information, but people who work to embrace their spiritual bodies as well as their intuitive field, are often able to receive information from higher planes than others.
The energy is always there and flowing, but the difference is like a water faucet and being able to open it only just a bit to receive a trickle or to be able to turn the faucet on full blast and receive an enormous flow of water coming in. There is a built in protective system, which first allows the energy to only trickle in, so that the psychic can grow comfortable with accessing the information from the closest planes where the information is not overwhelming to receive. As the psychic develops further and works on their spiritual connection, the flow continues to expand into the higher realms, so that they can become comfortable with the expanded flow of information. Otherwise, to first open up and receive the floodgates, would be overwhelming and a shock to the system.
It is rare to see a person with a primary indigo, violet or purple aura. When you do, the person is usually a visionary with a deep sense of service to humanity. More often, one generally sees flashes of violet and purple in the aura, which constitute a flow of energy when the person is doing psychic work or in a deep spiritual state of ecstasy and connection with the divine.
There is a poem written by Jenny Joseph in 1961 entitled: Warning: When I Am An Old Woman. In the poem, she states, …”When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple.” I’d like to think that Ms. Joseph was connecting with her sixth chakra purple energy and in her own way, is writing about what I refer to as “wise woman wisdom”, the deep intuitive knowledge and wisdom that every woman carries inside of her. As women enter into their fifties, they begin the wise woman cycle and the purple energy expands greater in their energy fields. Wearing purple is one way to connect with the energy and allow it to expand.
When Purple Goes Rogue
When purple becomes muddy, the person is out of balance and has spent too much time pushing their way into the other realms, without having a clear channel in the energy fields to do so. Because they are forcing the experiences, the lower bodies become gray and this mixes in with the purple, causing a muddied effect. They experience very uncomfortable side effects when pushing to open this field, including encounters with lower level beings from the other side and experiencing nightmares. Pushing this energy field open when one is not ready breaks the protective shield that is normally in place. This field is ready to open and close naturally as the energy raises and lowers. When it is pushed open, it shatters the field and the person becomes overly sensitive, out of balance and looses some touch with reality. They may hallucinate and become overwhelmed picking up on every energy imprint from each person. With no balance to discern what they are feeling, it overwhelms and cripples their mental and emotional fields. It is best to allow this process to open naturally, which will happen if one works to balance the lower fields and chakras first.
Recommendations to Connect With and Balance Indigo, Purple and Violet:
Foods: When entering the higher energetic levels and sixth (third-eye) and seventh (crown) chakras, food does not have the same effect on these light bodies. Grapes and grape juice may be beneficial to balance at times. To ground the body back from psychic work, dark chocolate is recommended to restore and connect to center.
Home Décor: Purple in the home works best in small doses. I love purple and have incorporated it in my home in various ways including purple drapes and for years, an eggplant purple chair that I used exclusively for meditation and psychic work. Purple pillows, bedspreads and accents work best in home décor to bring this energy into the home.
Clothing: Wearing purple connects one with the feeling of royalty and divinity. When feeling bold, people are drawn to wearing purple for a specific event. Most times though, it is more welcoming and energy enhancing to wear it in the lighter form of lavender. Lavender is the softer side and is calming, graceful and intuitive. Use lavender colors in the home and in your clothing to enhance this energy without it feeling overwhelming to you and to others.
Gemstones: amethyst, tanzanite, purple topaz, moonstone, purple fluorite, and clear quartz, diamond
Flowers: violets, purple aster, lavender, larkspur, hydrangea, monk’s hood, evening primrose, Scottish thistle, purple sage, lilacs, purple tuberose
Music: At this level, each person has to find and connect with the music that personally lifts their spirit and touches their soul. There is no one type of music that works here. Along with music, working with quartz crystal bowls is very helpful.
Activities: Guided meditations, which help you to visualize. Study with teachers on metaphysical topics, and energy work. Pay attention to your dreams, keep a journal, engage in service work and practice giving without thought of compensation. Spend time outdoors in the evening, enjoying the moon and stars.
Mantra: I am one with the universe. I am open to receiving the bountiful gifts, which are mine by divine right and for my highest and best purpose. In return, I pledge to be in service to humanity, to assist others how I can and to think of others with unconditional love and compassion. I accept the truth about who I am as well as who each person is; both in their gifts and in their shortcomings. I release my past, my fears and my old patterns on negative thinking. I replace them with love, light and positive affirmations each day. Each day I am growing stronger in the light and wiser in the ways of the ancients.
