See Auras

Under the right conditions, it is possible to clairvoyantly observe a coloured light around other people. This is known as the ‘aura’. Sometimes the aura is seen as multicoloured emanations around the person, built up of various differently coloured layers and zones.

How to see an Aura

To see the aura you have to be able to relax and concentrate, at the same time, and there is a trick to focusing the eyes in a special way.

1. You need soft light to train in, not dim, but good soft light. No harsh light shining or reflecting in your eyes! Get a book and cover it in Blue or Red paper. Stand it upright on a table several feet from you. Experiment with the distance until you find what is best for you. Make sure you have a plain neutral background. If the wall colour is wrong, hang a sheet of neutral coloured paper or cloth as a backdrop.

Note: The auras of the colours Blue and Red are the brightest and easiest to see. Blue has a Yellow aura and Red has a Green aura. The brightness and tone of the aura vary with the shade and tone of the colour used, so use bright primary colours.

2. Close your eyes take a few deep breaths and relax. When you are calm, look at the book. Focus your eyes on nothing, a little to the side and past it. Gently hold and get used to that focus but don’t strain your eyes or tense your eyes or forehead. Concentrate! you need a gentle, steady un-focus, similar to day-dreaming.

Note: When you need to blink, do so, or it will cause your eyes to tense and water. Blink normally and quickly without changing focus, and do not become preoccupied with it. It may cause the aura to disappear for a second, but it will reappear quickly if you stay relaxed and hold your focus.

After a while, you will see a pale narrow aura coming from the book. Hold the focus, don’t look AT it, soon a bright Yellow or Green aura will start building up from the object. Don’t change focus or look directly at it or the aura will disappear.

There is a reason for this strange un-focus. Your outer field of vision is many times more sensitive than the focused area is. Have you ever seen a movement, out of the corner of your eye, only to turn and see nothing there? What you may have seen is an aura building up from something and your outer field of vision has detected it.

3. Once you have completed the first step, gather several books and cover them, each with a different coloured paper. Study these one at a time and write down the auric colour for it. Next, try using two at a time, and watch how the auric colours affect each other.

4. Get a pot plant or some flowers and study it. The aura you will see emanates from the living plant and also from the colours of the petals. The Orange hue comes from the green of the stems and leaves. You will also see a more distinct etheric and a shimmering optical effect around them. This shimmering is the energy field or living aura of the plant.

5. For the next step use an animal, dog or cat etc, if you have one. Try and observe them when they are resting.

6. Observe your own aura. This can be done both inside and outside in the sun. Hold your arm out and study it against the sky or clouds. Alternatively, lie down and look at your legs. Make sure the skin is bare when you do this, and remember, grass will give off an Orange hue.

7. When you feel proficient enough, try it with a human subject. Just remember not to try too hard. Do it exactly the same as in the original exercise with the book. Get your volunteer to remove some of their clothing and study the bare skin area against a neutral background.

On a human subject, again, the first thing you will see is the etheric aura, like pale smoke clinging to the skin. Next, you will see the shimmering optical effect in the air extending from several inches to a couple of feet deep, depending on the strength of their aura. Keep trying and the aura’s colour will build up, and out from, the etheric. It will first appear as a narrow band of colour next to the etheric. This will expand slowly if you hold your focus until it is several inches or more.

8. The brightness of a person’s aura has a lot to do with how they feel. If they feel happy and full of life their aura is stronger, larger and brighter. Try playing their favourite music, this will help to energize their aura and make it easier to see.

9. Try it on your volunteer outside. Make sure the sun is behind you and use clouds as a backdrop.

Note: The basic auras of colours are as follows: Blue = Yellow aura, Red = Green aura, Green = Orange aura, Yellow = Pale Blue aura, Orange = Pale Green aura, Violet = Pale Gold aura, Indigo = Gold aura, Pink = Iridescent Green. These colours will vary slightly according to the shade and tone of the colours you use.

It takes practice to see the human aura, so don’t be disappointed if you fail, or see very little, the first few times you try. If you managed to see the auric colours of the books, you CAN learn to see the human aura. Using this training method stimulates the forehead chakra, which is responsible for this ability. With use, it will grow in strength and become progressively easier to do.
