Subtle Energies - The Etheric Body

The Aura - Personal Energy Field

By Judith Harlan Jubb

The AURA is made up of a collection of subtle matter and is called the ETHERIC BODY.

Because of genetic, soular, personality expression, and environmental factors, each ETHERIC BODY creates its own patterns. The etheric body consists of at least (4) separate essences:

LIFE FORCE ENERGY called PRANA is specialized by each individual life form when it is drawn into the body from the atmosphere through the chakras, which are bell shaped vortices attached through the nervous system.

In human beings (Homo sapiens) the six (6) major chakras are connected through ganglia along the spinal cord. The seventh major chakra has no direct link to a physical ganglion and is only developed through evolutionary development of the pineal center. There is a secondary chakra system which runs throughout the body adjoining the major chakras and also a tertiary chakra system which connects the extremities to the central system. The CHAKRA system acts as an interface between the physical body and the etheric body through the nervous system and the lines of meridian energy flow.

General Relationships between Colors, the Chakras and the corresponding Physical System:

Each color has (7) intrinsic elements:

Any one personal energy field will contain a variety of colors. Some patterns may be permanent or long term while others may be transitory and vary with mood, health, and activity.

Layers of the Auric Sheath: colors change in most layers depending on several variables. Although the layers are described by the density of the etheric matter of which they are made, as long as the organism is activated with 'prana' - the breath of life also called life force, all of these defined layers also simultaneously permeate the physical body in some way.

Physical Vitality (This layer immediately envelopes the dense physical body. Generally this is most visible next to the surface and extending out 3" to 7".) This energy body changes from light to dark depending upon the physical health of the individual.

Emotional energy body (called the Astral layer, extends out from the body 12" to 25" normally. Beyond this point agitation, stress, and over activity are indicated.) This energy body is most flexible and changes color with emotions.

Lower Mind Aura - the visibility depends on mental development and reflects thought forms, habitual processes, and constructs. The extension and color expressed in this energy body change with type of occupation.

Higher Mind Aura - shows the soul principle/higher intuition, and expands with the thought force (will or intention generated.) Vibration creates color: Habits of thought cause dominant tones which change with occupation.

Spiritual Aura - (called the spiritual/causal body permeates and forms the other bodies.) Contact between cosmos and the individual creature is ignited on this level. Color is defined by the Soular Personality.

Outer Auric Sheath - this lights all other bodies/aura layers unless negative or faulty conditions exist on a level, which effectively alters exchange with cosmic energies. The etheric matter is very subtle and fragile, usually perceived as a pastel shade of white if activated.

Energy perceived as Light (color) flows through the Chakra Systems and then extends out from the life form as the individual soul expresses vitality. Hence, a body filled with Light is healthy, happy, and in harmony with the interface between the Physical and Spiritual realms.

Some of the Chakras mentioned are designated Secondary Chakras: Thymus, Lymphatic, and Uterine.

The meridian system which connects the extremities with the Chakra System contains points which are recognized as Tertiary Chakras in some schools of thought. That these collected systems are directly related to the balance of energy and manifestation of health throughout the physical body, and in combination with the emotional and spiritual well being is acknowledged. That clairvoyants can see light and color which corresponds to the chakra centers, prana, and chi, the personality and the physical make up of an individual, is evidence of this fact.

This Color Chart is divided into lower and upper halves by a middle band. The values in the left column show relative tones from dark to light, visible in the subtle energy field of a human being or other lifeform.

The Lower Half of the chart shows colors that are muddy, dark and unclear. These typically indicate emotional imbalance as well as ailments of the nervous system; the lack of clarity in thought processes and brain functions; and physical afflictions of systems, or organs. The darkest tones indicate lethargic or near death conditions.

The Middle Band of colors running across the page show acute or inflammation conditions in the same categories as above. These colors in an Aura indicate crises or extreme conditions that should be addressed immediately.

The Violet vertical column signifies nervous system and emotional states.

The Blue column signifies emotional states and spiritual development.

The Green column shows health in the physical and mental connection.

The Yellow column signifies vitality and mental clarity.

The Red column on the right indicates the condition of blood and tissue.

The colors appearing in the Upper Half of the chart above the middle band indicate vitality, harmony, and well-being in the respective category. Any of the colors here visible in an individual energy field can be considered healthy depending on soular and physical qualities, and overall consistencies in the aura.

The Auras of Masters and very clear souls with high destinies to fulfill contain pastel tones of white not indicated on this chart. This chart is for purposes of personal development training in all aspects of manifestation during the lifetime.


Colors appearing in charts and scans may differ depending on the monitor viewed. The colors selected to represent living colors visible to a clairvoyant in the energy fields of individual human beings are limited by the present technologies available. Many of the subtle colorations in living light are difficult to reproduce through traditional photography, even by a professional using top quality materials, lighting and equipment. Digital technology is even more limited. The latest available format and technologies have been used on this website. Radiation given off by life-forms and elements vibrate beyond the basic visible spectrum and must therefore be experienced first hand for accuracy. Clairvoyants have extended sight which allows them to see what others can not readily observe.

That health and well being of the invested soul can be charted and the information exchanged, and used to identify genetic, environmental, and soular aspects of manifestation is a science towards improving the quality of life. Practitioners of various therapy techniques have been working with these energy systems to improve health for ages of time. Sensitive members of the community have had skills of sight and touch which have been offered to be of service to people in need. For these reasons, this document is offered to the human population for the continuing evolution of human kind on planet Earth.

With Blessings.
