Radiating light around the body or forming Auras is one of the different types of Spiritual Power or siddhis outlined in the Vibhuti Pada (Book III) of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The occult traditions believe that there are three kinds of auras.
The first and grossest type is said to be emitted by the physical body and, like all other forms of auras, it is oval in shape. This is sometimes referred to as the "Health Aura" as it indicates the state of the physical health of the person.
The second type is emitted by the astral body and is vapor like in appearance and color, having a resemblance to steam just before it dissolves and disappears from sight. It is difficult to distinguish when it is intermingled with the other kinds of aura, but when the astral body is seen apart from the physical body it can be perceived.
The third type is emitted by Prana from the subtle body. They say it looks something like a vapory cloud of the color and appearance of an electric spark and has a faint rosy tint when it is in or near the body, but loses this hue as it gets a few inches away.
Nevertheless, please remember that this is not a physical phenomenon. If scientists need instruments to detect the various frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, you’ll need some kind of instrument as well to detect auras; that instrument is your inner eye.

The ability to radiate light (auras) in varying degrees around the body can be attained by performing Samyama Meditation on the Solar Plexus Chakra.
The Solar Plexus Chakra, also called Manipura (city of jewels), is the energy centre in the spinal column located behind the navel - corresponding to the solar plexus. The corresponding element (Bhuta) is fire; the sense-organ (Indriya) is the eye; and the sensation (Tanmatra) is sight.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the centre of heat and energy, and it is the main reservoir of Prana which causes the luminous radiation or auras around the body only visible to someone with an awakened Third Eye. To better understand how this works, there are two other concepts that need to be studied:
1. Agni – In the study of Chakras, you will encounter the word Bhuta which means “element.” The five elements: Earth (Prithvi), Water (Jala), Fire (Agni), Air (Vayu), and Ether (Akasa) constitute the Pancha Mahabhutas (five great elements). Mastery over Fire (Agni) allows control over the transition of emotion, energy, assimilation, and digestion from their simple or base to the multifaceted forms known only to advanced students of yoga. See Mastery Of The Elements for more info.
2. Samana Vayu - Samana is one of the five pranas which means “equal or same” (see Pranayama). Vayu means "wind or breath." In the Vedic tradition, Vayu is the Wind-God who is the master of life and inspirer of the breath or dynamic energy called the prana. The flow of Samana-Vayu moves from the periphery of the body to the center and this regulates the heat processes of the body. Auras are believed to be projections of this current.
