Today I want to talk to you about auras. What are they? Auras are a distinct atmosphere or quality that a person, place or thing is generating. All things that live off oxygen have a aura. You can tell if someone isnt feeling right by reading their aura. It can be felt through body language and even seen with colors. An example of it being felt is that feeling you get when you first meet someone. You can get a feeling if you are going to vibe with them or not. It is that feeling when you walk into a room and know something happened there or a feeling of not wanting to be there. When you have mastered seeing them they can be in many colors ranging from red to purple or even green depending on the person, or things vibration or mood. I am just now getting the hang of it with practice. You can read a aura from within 3 feet of the person or object. The people who have experienced a tramatic circumstance like a rape survivor can be read within 50 feet, it can be very sensitive and delicate. You can say something and lie but your aura never lies.
How to See an Aura:
First of all, find a white piece of paper and a place away from harsh light; soft light is best to read auras.
Place a hand on the paper and relax your eyes. Don’t stare at the hand, rather look at the areas around the fingertips and fingers.
After a while, if one is relaxed enough, one will begin to see a soft haze around the hand. If observed long enough, colors will start to appear. Beginners can usually make out only one color, but as they get better, there will be able to see more at one time. Don’t be discouraged if there isn’t anything there the first few times. It takes practice to become good at reading auras, and after a while you will realize that it’s not really as hard as you may have first thought.
One may also wish to take nonliving objects, like rocks and such, and try to see their auras as well. This can be very good practice. Positive auras are more of a glow, while negativity tends to show up as spots or smokey “imperfections” within that glow, though sometimes they can overpower it. This is never a good sign.
Practice practice practice
Below is a photo used to practice training your peripheral vision, which is what is used to see Auras.
Practice exercise number one;
- Place the picture 1-2 ft in front of yourself. Focus on the center black dot for 60 seconds, resist your desire to look anywhere else. Just focus. Observe the circles as you focus on the dot, notice any colors changing around the circles. This happens because peripheral sensors (that are often not used) in the eye begin being stimulated. When you begin to see human or object Auras they will resemble what you see around these circles. With practice they will appear clearer and more intense.
Practice exercise number 2
This exercise is harder. Practice in intervals to avoid headaches, 1-2 minutes, 3-5 (best without blinking) and work your way up to 25-45 minutes. Once you can do this, you will notice a huge improvement on your auric ability.
- With the next photo, the goal will be to improve the communication between the left and right brain hemispheres, increasing your natural ability to see Auras. Place this picture, like the other, about 1-2 ft in front of you. Overlook the circle, you should see a total of 3 or 4 circles become visible (for children of the 90’s, you’ll remember this as “magic eye”), now adjust your vision to overlap the circles. What you should see is one circle with what appears to have a cross in the center. Once this appears, you will know that your two brain hemispheres are communicating. Initially the cross will be unstable, you may see the horizontal line better than the vertical line or vice versa. Adjust the distance as needed to obtain maintaining a balanced cross.
- One line in the cross will usually appear “in front” of the other. This means, one of your brain hemispheres is more dominant. Try to focus on getting the “hidden” line in front as much as possible. The final goal is to achieve and maintain a completely balanced cross. What you will notice is improved concentration, awareness, and sensitivity. Bright backgrounds will become pink or dark purple in color.
Exercise 2-what you should see
Tips to improve your reading
- Practice stimulating your peripheral vision (with suggested exercises).
Set the mood
Once you’re comfortable with the two concentration exercises you should begin looking at human and object Auras.
Set the mood, and relax. Sometimes a quick 10-15 minute meditation can help you get into your “right” brain. Dim the lights, bright light you may find distracting until you’re good at reading. Go for candlelight, or natural sunlight, those work well. The ideal is not to dark, not to bright. You’re looking for soft and uniform, no shadows.
Reading an Aura
- Stand about 5-7ft from the object/person you are reading.
- Have them in front of a solid colored background, darker colors or white are the only ones you should use. Avoid busy patterned backgrounds, this will cause color combining and confusion. It is also helpful if your human subject is not wearing busy patterned clothing.
- With a relaxed gaze, focus on your subject. Paying specific attention to what you see in your peripheral vision, like you did in the concentration exercises. If reading a person, focus on their nose, if the nose is distracting, focus on the “third eye” or spot between and slightly above the eyebrows. If you’re reading yourself, put your hand in front of that “blank” background, and focus on the center of your palm. You may “sense” the aura and not actually see it, this works differently for everyone.
- As an Aura appears, you’re most likely to see a half inch or less radiance surrounding the subject. At first, it may appear a single color (most common is white/blue/gray or clear), filmy, cloudy, or fuzzy. Until you are used to seeing the Aura, it will most likely vanish when you lose your focus. With practice, multiple colors will begin to emerge, and the Aura will appear larger and more solid. Remember, you need to train your eyes. Be patient and practice.
- After concentrating long enough, close your eyes. For a second or two you will only see the Aura. You have only seconds to observe this because your photosensitive cells will stop vibrating and sending visual sensations to the brain. If you miss it, start over. Record what you see in a notebook if needed to decipher later. Pay attention to any particular strong color points you see near or surrounding the head.
Avoiding after images
Sensors in our eyes (blue, red, green) are vibration sensors which are non-linear and have memory. The downside to this memory is that those sensors vibrate and fluctuate for several seconds after the stimulation has stopped.
This memory of visual stimulation is called after image. After images have the same silhouette or outline as original images. After image of a subject surrounded by its Aura however is larger than the original image. To avoid capturing the after image, it is imperative to focus on one spot when watching the Aura and resist the urge to change focal points, otherwise the image of the Aura may become confused with the afterimage of the subject.
What do the colors and what do they mean?
Purple: indicates spiritual thoughts. Purple is never a strong point in the Aura. It appears only as temporary “clouds” and “flames”, indicating truly spiritual thoughts. Can also be the colors of one who is seeking something in life. They represent an ability to handle affairs with worldliness and practicality. Dark shades may show that the person has obstacles to overcome and is feeling misunderstood.
Blue: Balanced existence, sustaining life, eased nerve system, transmitting forces and energy. People with blue strong point in their Aura are relaxed and balanced. This color is most commonly associated with quiet and calm. Any blue in the aura is good to have, but deep blue is the best. One with deep blue in their aura shows a person who has found their work in life. Many are spiritual minded as well. Blue may sometimes represent a tendency to be moody and depressed. Electric blue can override any other color in the Aura when a person is learning and/or teaching.
Turquoise: indicates dynamic quality of being, highly energized personality, capable of projection, influencing other people. People with turquoise strong point in their Aura can do many things simultaneously and are good organizers. They feel bored when forced to concentrate on one thing. People love bosses with turquoise Auras, because such bosses explain their goals and influence their team rather than demand executing their commands.
Green: restful, modifying energy, natural healing ability. All natural healers should have it. People with a green strong point in their Auras are natural healers. The stronger the green Aura, the better the healer. They also love gardening and usually have a “green hand” – anything grows for them. Being in a presence of a person with a strong and green Aura is a very peaceful and restful experience. However, dark shades of green can indicate one who is jealous or uncertain.
Yellow: joy, freedom, non-attachment, freeing or releasing vital forces. People who glow yellow are full of inner joy, very generous, and not attached to anything. Yellow halo around the head: high spiritual development. A signature of a spiritual teacher. Can also indicate mental activity, optimism. It can mean new learning opportunities and wisdom. A golden yellow means that the person takes care of themselves. Ruddy yellow may mean that its owner is shy.
Orange: uplifting and absorbing. Inspiring. A sign of power. Ability and/or desire to control people. When orange becomes a strong point, it usually contributes to a yellow halo, which then becomes gold, indicating not only a spiritual teacher, but someone capable of demonstrating their unique abilities. This is a color of warmth, thoughtfulness, and creativity. The muddier shades may represent pride or vanity, while golden orange denotes self-control. A person with orange in their aura may suffer from kidney ailments.
Red: materialistic thoughts, thoughts about the physical body. Predominantly red Aura indicates materialistically oriented person. Typically, the color of strength, strong passion, and will. Dark red may symbolize one who has a quick temper and is nervous or impulsive. All red relates to nervous tendencies.
Pink: love (in a spiritual sense). To obtain a clean pink, it’s a mix of purple (the highest frequency we perceive) with red (the lowest frequency). Pink Aura indicates that the person achieved a perfect balance between spiritual awareness and the material existence. The most advanced people have not only a yellow halo around the head (a permanent strong point in the Aura) but also a large pink Aura extending further away. The pink color in the Aura is quite rare and typically appears as temporary, never as a strong point in the Aura. It represents compassion, and possibly a love of art and beauty. Darker or muddier shades of pink may point to an individual who is immature.
Brown: can be unsettling, distracting, materialistic, negating spirituality. When this color is more of a glow, it can also reflect a person who is very “earthy”; the person is establishing new roots; or centered with themselves or surroundings. However, if seen in the chakras, it may mean that a person’s energy is in some way being blocked.
Gray: dark thoughts, depressing thoughts, unclear intentions, temporary presence of a darker side of the owner’s personality.
Silver Lights or Twinkles: Seeing these in a person’s aura may mean that they are, will be, or have recently been pregnant. However, this is not always so. Seeing this may indicate a person who has great creativity in their life.
Black Spots: The presence of black spots in the aura may indicate that it is unbalanced in some areas. This may mean that the person has some negative habits that he or she should work on. Meditation helps reduce these spots, as does things like exercise and sunlight. If they persist, psychiatric help may be needed.
White: Many times this is one of the first colors that can be observed in an aura, but when it is a true and strong color of the aura, it reflects purity and truth. However, it can also indicate a serious disease or artificial stimulation (drugs). Why does the white color in the Aura sometimes indicate problems? White color is like a noise, rather than a set of harmonious tones (monochromatic colors). It is impossible to “tune” the noise to an orchestra playing harmonious music, hence the white Aura indicates a lack of harmony in the body and mind. Nature, which we are a part of, is harmonious. This harmony comes in discrete vibration “tones” or harmonics, partially described by the modern quantum physics.
Several hours before death, the Aura becomes white, and greatly increases in intensity. For this reason in most cultures “death” is depicted in WHITE (not black).
