Kang Li Mineral Kingdom
As with crystal healing, chakra and astrology, aura readings deal with the things you cannot see. Essentially, auras are defined by the electromagnetic energy fields radiating from all forms of matter so with living, breathing human beings like us, you'll get layers of it. Readers believe that these layers of colour reveal someone’s physical and mental health, life purpose, thoughts, and feelings. Since 1989, Kang Li Mineral Kingdom has been providing their services for geomancy, feng shui, crystal healing and especially, aura reading. Located at Fu Lu Shou Complex in Bugis (which is also full of other spiritual readers and healers), it has quite a loyal following and continue to intrigue many to try out their services.
Though I booked a 30-minute one-on-one appointment ($33), the session took over an hour. In a way, it is comforting to know that they really take the time to sit down with you to explain things and also answer any burning questions you have about life, love, career, your future and more.
Getting my aura read:
The session begins with the aura photograph where you have to sit on a contraption and look into an old-timey camera. Afterwards, a report is printed out, explaining the colours in your aura before your reader leads you into a booth to explain the photo and what she interprets from this. Being open to anything (trust the universe, man), I was pleasantly surprised about what my aura said about me – it even made my day. She said that I was surrounded by love, passion and creativity and unlike most other auras, the love sector was also prominent in my future.
The second half of the session was a Q&A where you're allowed to ask her anything – but this is where you should take it with a pinch of salt. At the end of it all, you get to choose five crystals that resonate with you the most from a giant bowl. The crystals you choose also mean something to your current situation. What I got from my crystals: that my quest for knowledge and clarity often left me lonely but apparently open for love and to be loved. Vague and surreal, but I'll take it.
