Well I picked up a book my mum was reading and initially thought, pah, load of hobbletosh, but after reading into it a bit I thought it was a very interesting pesonality book. It's by someone called Pamala Oslie.

What it basically does it split various 'auras', 'which I'm assuming in this sense are traits or character types, personalities, and assigns them a colour or colour combination. The labelling isn't so important other than to simply give your type a label, but it's the description in each aura that is really interesting.

After scanning the book I am pretty convinced I'm a violet/tan, which, summed up, is pretty much an amalgamation of logic and order twinned with a passionate desire to make a difference, act and take steps to get somewhere other people might find impossible.
There is also simply 'violet' and 3 different sorts of 'tans', 'logical', 'emotional' and another kind i can't remember.

Although the author is a 'professional psychic' and I often steer clear of people with those titles, the book is pretty much devoid of hocus pocus and instead focuses on pure feelings and reactions that various people feel. That makes it real and certainly reading a set of characteristics that match your own positively reinforces any flagging confidence you might be feeling.

I was impressed with how my personality, or 'aura', matched almost perfectly with selected colours, and not on a horoscope level of interpretation like 'oh, that could be me'.

I would certainly recommend giving it a go, especially if anyone is feeling a little bleak on their future or who they are.

It's called Life Colors.
ooo a Prfessional psychic...

hmm. i wonder how professional she really is.

how can u ever really prove ones psychic right?...

ea...yea...just makes me think.

...but i do believe in Aura....Just dont know if people can really see it. not doubtin it tho....:m190:
Thanks! I have been "seeing" auras lately and have been for the most part hiding the fact. Going to find the book!!!

we were talking about this last week...I dont see colors...just a waving outline around a person...almost like gas fumes in the summer sun...the more agitated the outline is the more hostile volatile, and explosive a person...
I don't 'see' anything like glowing auras or rippling lights around people lol, I think the TAN side of me regards all that as utter hocus pocus, or at best self-duping hallucinations. But the very real content of the book regarding particular sets of traits that form one 'colour' is very good and I found it very accurate not to mention a boost for confidence.

from the test..

also the red overlay was 1

also the indigo description was so accurate..

Indigo is the most recent aura color to arrive on the planet. Indigos are ushering in a new energy, a new consciousness, and a new age of peace and harmony. Whereas Violets feel driven to help save the planet, to educate the masses, and to improve life here, Indigos are here to live as examples of a new higher awareness.
At this writing, most of the Indigos are children, although there are a few Indigos who came as forerunners years ago. The words used to describe Indigos include honest, aware, highly intuitive, psychic, independent, fearless, strong-willed, and sensitive.
Indigos are old souls who know who they are and where they've come from. Some consider Indigos to be bizarre. These assertive individuals are born with their spiritual memories intact. Many parents report that their Indigo children regale them with vivid details of past lives or recent encounters with spiritual beings. Parents also report that these children can read their minds and seem to have amazing psychic abilities. Parents are often at a loss as to how to raise these amazing little beings.( This part to a certain extent though I find this description to be a bit to much of a hyperbole).

An unusual characteristic of Indigos is that they frequently appear androgynous. It is often difficult to tell if Indigos are male or female, homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, or asexual. It's as if Indigos have both the yin and yang, male and female qualities within them. Their sexuality is not their primary concern however; it is their spirituality.

If I don't think about it too much and you asked me what color a person was, I would tell you...but if you let me analyze it, I'll go over the top and give you a wrong answer. I'll try to surprise myself into thinking about it sometime...

I have one friend who I've decided is "yellow". I don't physically see yellow around him; he just feels yellow to me. He fits pretty well with the yellow answers of that quiz too. I don't think I would physically see an aura anyways, I tend to be pretty spaced off from the outside world. Instead I'd look inside myself and think "Hmm. Self, how does this person make you feel?" and produce that as an answer.

I don't feel like a crystal, I'm more of a violet:

Violets are the inspirational visionaries, leaders and teachers who are here to help save the planet. Most Violets feel drawn to educate the masses, to inspire higher ideals, to improve the quality of life on the planet, or to help save people, animals and the environment.

All Violets have an inner sense that they are here to do something important, that their destiny is greater than that of the average person. Most Violets have felt this way since childhood. As children, many Violets imagined becoming famous, or traveling the planet, possibly joining humanitarian causes such the Peace Corp. Many of these charismatic personalities take on roles as leaders and teachers, while other Violets prefer to reach people through music, film or other art form.

Because this era is currently the "Violet Age," any Violets who are not accomplishing what they came here to do are experiencing an inner “push” — even an inner “earthquake.” Inner forces seem to be shaking them up and pushing them to move into action, to fulfill their life purpose. Violets know they are here to do something significant. However, they aren't always sure what that something is or how to accomplish it.

Many Violets were taught as children that their dreams and aspirations were unrealistic, so they have lost touch with their original visions. It's important for Violets to reconnect with their life purpose and vision, and to take action. Otherwise they will always feel unfulfilled. They will always sense something is missing from their lives. Violets need to learn to slow down long enough to listen to their inner voice and to connect with their higher vision.

Oh god, this almost brings tears to my eyes *snif snif*

Blues are some of the most loving, nurturing and supportive personalities of the Life Colors. They live from their heart and emotions. Their purpose for being on the planet is to give love, to teach love and to learn that they are loved. Their priorities are love, relationships, and spirituality.

Blues are traditionally teachers, counselors, and nurses---basically the loving, nurturers and caretakers on the planet. Blues are constantly helping others. They want to make sure that everyone feels loved and accepted. People are always turning to Blues for comfort and counsel because Blues will always be there for them. They consistently provide a shoulder for others to cry on.

Blues are the most emotional personalities in the aura spectrum. They can cry at the drop of a hat. Blues cry when they are happy, hurt, angry, sad, or for no apparent reason at all. Even watching a sentimental commercial on television can bring on tears.

The Environmental Tan Life Color is a deep tan-colored band layered with a forest-green-colored band. The Environmental Tan is the bridge between the physical family and the mental family.
Environmental Tans experience their reality by physically touching their environment and then mentally analyzing it. (Occasionally, Yellow/Tan Combinations who have suppressed their free-spirited Yellow aspect believe themselves to be Environmental Tans. It is important that Yellow/Tans find a way to reconnect with their Yellow aspect rather than live believing they are Environmental Tan.)
Like their Logical Tan and Sensitive Tan counterparts, Environmental Tans desire security, stability, and logic. They operate best in a world of rules, boundaries, standards, and logical outcomes that follow basic laws of cause and effect.
Environmental Tans prefer structure and discipline. They process life in an orderly and sequential manner just as Logical Tans do, but they have the added ability to judge or measure their environment from an inner perception.
These amazing personalities can intuitively analyze spatial situations. They can sense the exact distance from one side of a room to the other just by looking at it. Environmental Tans relate kinesthetically and mentally to their environment.

This last is strange and true. I am always guessing the temperature (correctly), and trying to judge disances and such. Weird!!

I definitely have to be more than one colour.

although Yellow resonates very much
Yellows are the most fun-loving, free-spirited, energetic, and childlike personalities in the aura spectrum. Yellows are wonderful, sensitive, optimistic beings, whose life purpose is to bring joy to people, to have fun, and to help heal the planet.

Yellows can either be very shy and sensitive, or they can be the life of the party. These playful characters have a great sense of humor. They love to laugh and to make others laugh. Yellows believe life is to be enjoyed. They like to live life freely and spontaneously. With a perpetual smile on their face, they remind people to not take themselves or their problems too seriously.

Yellows would prefer not to work at all, unless their work was fun, playful, or creative. They love nature, and often have concerns for the survival of wildlife and the environment. Dogs are very drawn to Yellows and often become their best friends.

The last part is funny. Whenever I go to my friends' homes, their pets come to me even though I pay no attention to them (I have a slight phobia).

Crystal is a rare Life Color. Crystals have clear auras and are known as the "aura chameleons." Like chameleons, their auras will change colors to match those of the people they are connecting with at the time. They then take on the characteristics, behavior patterns, emotions and thoughts of that color.
Consequently, in power Crystals can get along quite well with almost anyone. Yellows , for example, feels they can relate to Crystals who, when they are with them, act and think like Yellows . Later, when the same Crystals spend time with Sensitive Tans, the Tans can feel as if they have found kindred spirits.
However, the Crystals' inconsistencies can also confuse people. One minute Crystals think and behave like Greens . A short while later, they can act like Blues . The more they connect and bond with others, the more their personalities change.
Because Crystals tend to absorb the colors of other people's auras, people can, at times, feel an energy drain when they are in the presence of Crystals. In power, Crystals can be a clear conduit or channel for healing energy. Being natural healers, the Crystals' gift is to help their clients clear blockages, thereby enabling the clients' own natural healing processes to take place.
While healing, balanced Crystals are able to keep their thoughts and emotions out of the way, making the healing more pure. Crystals do not always understand their healing abilities. It can often frighten and confuse them or cause them to feel overwhelmed. These rare souls are often physically fragile and delicate.
Because of their unusual sensitivity, they can only heal one person at a time. They then need to go to a peaceful place to cleanse their aura. Working with too many people can short-circuit their system.

Well... this certainly does explain a lot.

The fact that so many colors were high really confirms the Crystal. I find that when I am alone, I'm more of a green than anything. But, out in public around different people my personality does adapt to that person or group.

Greens are some of the most powerful and intelligent people in the aura spectrum. Greens are extremely bright. They process information and ideas quickly; jumping from steps one to ten. They do not like dealing with all the steps and details in between. A project that is too detailed is tedious and boring for Greens . They prefer to develop an idea, organize a plan, and then delegate someone else to take care of the details.
Greens are very drawn to money, power, and business. These quick-thinkers are very organized and efficient. They write lists and efficiently check off the items on the list as they are completed. Greens recognize patterns and discover solutions very quickly.
When Greens are in their power, they can accomplish anything. They love to set goals and are determined to achieve them. Greens are
