The word aura is used regularly in the English language but it also has many alternative meanings depend on the context in which the word is used.

The first definition of aura is a distinctive quality or atmosphere that surrounds or seems to be generated by a person, thing or a particular place.

The word aura can also be used to describe a symptom of perceptual disturbance that some people experience just before they begin to suffer from a migraine. It can also be experienced by people who have epilepsy just before they suffer a seizure. People who have experienced an aura describe it as the perception of a strange light. It tends to act as a kind of warning signal to people, letting them know that they are about to have a seizure or migraine. Other people claim to experience aura with having a migraine, this is known as a silent migraine.

However, an aura can be confused as a sudden onset of pain, panic attacks, anxiety attacks which can make it difficult for Doctors to make a diagnosis. It can also be difficult to diagnose someone who experiences chest pain, dizziness, palpitations, paresthesis and derealisation.

Aura is also a word that is used in parapsychology to describe a field of subtle and luminous radiation that surrounds a person or a particular object. Aura usually applies to people who have particular power or holiness. Some people describe it as the essence of an individual.

An aura is said to be the energy field that surrounds a particular person, an object or a surface. It is often been interpreted as being the vibrations of a persons soul or the representation of certain aspects of the Chakras. Many people claim that chakras can also be viewed by the naked eye provided that a person is well ordained in this science.

The aura's are said to be several layers or cocoons that blend together to envelop a person. Each aura is also said to have a difference color or can be represented as having a different color. In terms of metaphysics these can be represented as being electromagnetic fields. A special sub field of photography known as Kirlian photography can actually capture these auras.
