The emotional aura is the second layer of your auric body, it is associated with the Sacral Charkas (located just behind your navel). This layer is estimated to be two to four inches out from the physical body and is represented most often as an oval egg shape. The coloring here will change moment by moment. Many get confused with this layer as it shape shifts with the emotions being experienced. It is also affected by the internal self-worth. It is also here that you see what many refer to as energy cords, this is especially true of mothers with children or spouses. It works in reverse, however, if you have a strong dislike of a person it can damage your emotional auric field and create a black spaces (and even a black cord) which can eventually lead to problems in the other auric layers.
We all have read the reports from traditional medicine that share how emotions can have an effect on your health – negative emotions can weaken the immune system, while positive emotions can strengthen the immune system and help recovery. It is the same theory here, positive emotions raise self-worth and strengthen the emotional aura, while negative emotions can produce damage.
It is important to understand this auric layer and how it works with empathics, anyone doing psychic work, or soul work healing. Many people in this area of energy work are unusually sensitive and they take on the emotions of others easily. For many who have developed their skills and workings with energy, you will see a layer in between the emotional aura and the remaining auric levels. This appears a fluid layer that acts as a bubble of sorts to protect the inner two layers of the aura from becoming damaged from the energy of others – especially their emotions.
Again, the coloring of the emotional aura will shift moment by moment depending upon the emotions being experienced. When reading someone’s aura at this level you may see any of these variations of the color green as an example.
Clear Green One who is in tune with others and their own emotions
Deep Green Suggests the person is overwhelmed by emotional demands people place on them
Yellowish-Green Jealousy and resentment (If this is the case an aura may be cloudy around the heart.)
Black / Clouded spots This could indicate physical pain caused by emotional pain that has penetrated the etheric layer. This could also indicate unresolved hurt or guilt.
It is key here to remember that your emotional health affects your overall health.
