Beginner’s Guide to Seeing Auras

Auras are thought to be rainbow-like, electromagnetic, energy fields surrounding each person. Others who have worked with auras feel that auras are a form of emotional radiation, generally to subtle to be seen. Still other feel the aura is somehow connected to one’s astral body, or spiritual essence, of an individual. There is generally agreement among those who believe in auras that everyone has an aura (some feel every living thing has an aura) and that auras can vary greatly in terms of shape, size and color.

Skeptics claim there is no scientific proof of auras and there must be some other explanation for auras which has lead to auras being largely classified as paranormal and part of parapsychology. From the late 1950s into the 1980s many felt (and some still feel) that Kirlian photography proved the existence of the aura, however, subsequent research seems to indicate that moisture is the key to the auras captured in Kirlian photos (and the fact that inanimate objects also can create auras when Kirlian photographic techniques are employed). Get Your Own Personal Aura Energy Reading There are still some mysteries surrounding Kirlian photographic as the exact cause of these auras is unknown. There are theoretical models as to what causes these ‘auras’ in photos and the debate. Though Kirlian photography has not provided the absolute proof of auras, there is a great deal of evidence that auras have been observed and commented upon throughout human history.

Aura is an ancient Greek word for ‘breeze’. Perhaps the ancient Greeks were implying the aura is something that can be felt, yet unseen, at least in the typical sense. The Persian word ‘farr’ was used to describe a halo, aura or energy emanating from special individuals, originally the Zoroastrian kings. Auras are widely accepted as a reality in the East and often associated with the ‘chakras’ or various energy centers of the body. In fact, the Buddhist flag represents the colors of the aura seen surrounding the enlightened Buddha.
The very notion of a ‘halo’; was born from the perception of golden auras around the heads of spiritual figures in the West and is often reflected in classical Christian art dating back over a millennium. In India, within Jaina dharma, the religion of Jainism, colors of the aura are associated with the mental, emotional, physical and even spiritual states of the body.

Those who see auras feel that anyone can prepare themselves, and have the capacity to see auras. Though it is easy to dismiss such efforts it is worth considering that Michael Crichton, one of the most successful writers and producers of the 20th century (and who was a trained physical from Harvard Medical School) at one time traveled to Arizona to train in seeing auras.

Below are some tips and exercises for beginners to begin working on seeing auras:

Preparing to see auras
If you are interested in learning how to see auras, the first thing you should do is practice breathing and relaxation techniques. Simply close your eyes and focus on achieving deep breaths. Try to match the length of the inhales to the length of the exhales. Remaining relaxed and at ease is the optimal emotional state in which to open your visual perception to the existence of auras.

Visualization techniques are a great way to get started on your journey to seeing auras. With your eyes closed, visualize your own aura surrounding your body. It can look like a sort of bubble or a blurry shield; whatever feels comfortable and natural to you.

Mentally play with your imagined aura by altering its distance from your body. Imagine that it is tightly compressed, almost touching your skin and then extend it outwards and away from your body until it reaches the four walls of the room you are in. Then bring it back in again and repeat until this feels completely comfortable.

To strengthen your ability to perceive auras, you will need to repeat this daily for a few weeks or a few months, depending on how natural this exercise feels to you.

Seeing Auras: The Basics
Those who see and work with auras state that conscious effort is usually required. Bear in mind though, that high levels of effort are more likely to result in frustration than in success. Frustration is the very thing that will block your openness to receiving auras because it interferes with your composure and ability to relax.

When you first start practicing aura perception, you will find it considerably easier if you partner with a willing participant rather than a perfect stranger or an unsuspecting friend. This is because you need to ensure that your partner is open and at ease; you will find it easier to perceive someone’s aura is they are consciously receptive. Your partner should also stand in front of a blank, white wall in natural light. These are the optimal conditions for perceiving auras for beginners.

Seeing Auras: Exercise 1
1. Ask your partner to stand in front of a blank wall, preferably white. The background is really important because overwhelming patterns will interfere with your ability to sense an aura.

2. Stand about 18 inches away from your partner and make sure you are both relaxed and breathing gently.

3. It is really important that you look in the correct place when attempting to perceive auras. You should not look directly at the person. Instead, look slightly off to the side or slightly above the head. If you see an aura, it will be in your peripheral vision.

4. The aura will look like a blurry outline around your partner. You might see a color, or you may see shades of silver or white. Don’t focus your attention on one particular spot; the aura might be very close to the body or quite far away. The distance of an aura to a body fluctuates according to mood.

5. If you can’t see the aura straight away, you might be trying to hard or you might not be in a receptive state of mind.

Seeing Auric Colors: Exercise 2
Once you have mastered the previous exercise, you are going to need to extend it in order to perceive the color of your friend’s aura. The lighting is even more important for seeing auric colors. Natural light is far better than bright or artificial light. Direct sunlight is too bright, so stay indoors for this exercise and practice during the day time in a naturally well-lit room. Some advanced practitioners like to use candlelight.

When you feel comfortable that you can see a blurry outline, focus on letting a color gently emerge. Do not try to force it; sometimes it just will not happen. Ask your friend to slowly shift their body from side to side. This will cause their aura to naturally move as well, which will allow you to distinguish it from the background.

Seeing Your Own Aura: Exercise 3
Seeing your own aura can be a really useful way of tuning in with your emotions. Once you learn what each color means, you can see if your aura is the same color as the emotion you are feeling at the time.

In the bath, make sure your feet are pointed straight upwards; against wall of the tub. Relax and stare at your feet. Look for a blurry or perhaps shimmery outline around your feet.

As bathtubs are often white, this is a good way of seeing your aura without distracting scenery. Beware though; bathroom lighting is not always favorable for auric exercises.
