  1. It’s a special post! Purple is a special color. Referring to the plot of light intensity as a function of frequency or wavelength, when the wavelength is shortened through purple light, it is found ultraviolet, x-ray, and gamma rays.
    In the case of human auras, purple aura means inner maturity. The thicker the purple, the higher the intensity and intensity of his soul communication with God. People with a purple aura are usually proven to be diligent in worship which is really transcendent and immanent. Really worship that managed to know his identity and who his God. This special color is also manifested from the seventh chakra of humans. The man whose seventh chakra was wide open was a remarkable human being even though the band he liked was Deep Purple and not a religious songs.
