What an awesome thread. I have only had one experience with reading someone's aura. I had never met her before but she was the fiance of a man named Greg I'd known since high school. I always had this strange connection with this man but we never became a couple. Anyway, I was at a party summer '08. I had not seen Greg for almost 15 years. He walks up the driveway holding his finace's hand. As I looked at her I saw this awful browish/reddish glow around her. It was the worst color combination I had ever seen! While I was looking at her I just got physically sick. I mean, my stomach was churning she had such a crappy negative energy around her. Ugh. Even thinking about it makes my stomach flip!
Boy oh boy did I avoid her the entire night! I couldn't even sit near her! I knew she had some issues and that Greg would not be happily married to her! Alas, they got married anyway and I have heard through the grapevine it hasn't been a good one!
I did have my aura read many years ago in my early 20's. I had gone to a wonderful spiritual community in NY called Lily Dale. I had reading with a woman who drew what she was told by my spirit guides( can't remember what that's called now). She told me my aura was purple but at the time I had no idea what she meant!
Lily Dale was a wonderful place and I have thought of it fondly over the years. If any of you live in New York state I highly recommend you visit!
There's a website called The Pagan's Path that can help you read aura's if you're interested. They give some exercies to help you practice and give definition's to each color!
