What is an AURA?
First things first. A basic answer is that the aura is a living energy field that surrounds all living creatures. We are all made up of energy. Even though your body feels solid it is actually made of energy waves vibrating in a certain way. Everything we see and feel is made of energy and molecules clustering together to create their unique pattern that you can identify. Our auras reflect who we are and they extend out from the body. Everybody is different and there is no real set length that they extend. It can be anything between 1 and 5 feet. This can also depend upon our mood, our state of mind etc.
As you know, the aura surrounds everyone and this energy field is like a magnet. It can pick up the vibrational energies that are floating around everywhere you go.
Your vitality and wellbeing depend on maintaining a healthy aura. Ill-health, emotional upset and turmoil as well as food, drink, any drugs, medicinal or otherwise, our environment, all affect the aura.
Now you can see why it is important to keep your aura in tip-top condition. One of the most important things we can do for ourselves is to cleanse our auras regularly. This will help keep out negative effects from our environment and other people. I use an essence called Astral Clear and I put a few drops on the palms of my hands and then smooth from the top of my head right down my body until I get to my feet, I smooth and ‘fluff’ my aura every morning. (sounds like I’m talking about a cushion doesn’t it saying I fluff my aura, but I can’t think of a better way of explaining it unless you saw me do an actual demonstration of it.
Now you’ve read about what the aura is you’ll probably want to have a go at feeling the aura. It is quite easy to feel the aura and most people are really surprised at how easy it can be felt. Firstly, you need to find a willing person to practice on.
Ask them to sit on a chair where you can stand behind them.
Do you remember the energy exercise I told you about where you rub your hands together and then slowly (palms in front of you, facing each other (as if you were going to clap) then slowly push your hands together and you will find a resistance, that’s energy and you’re feeling energy. It is the same with the aura, rub your hands together and do as I said above, stand behind a person who’s sat down and go above their head and slowly lower your hands until you feel ‘a resistance’ as I call it.
Hold your hands about two feet over the top of their head, close your eyes and slowly allow your hands to move down towards the top of their head until you find contact with their aura. In most cases, this will be between 2 – 6 inches from the top of their head.
The aura will feel different to everyone, however, generally, you will know when you have found the aura as you will be able to feel one or more of the following: – tingling sensation – coolness – warmth – resistance – a rush of air, for me, it’s the ‘resistance’ feeling as that’s how I feel the energy a lot of the time.
Once you have found the aura over the top of the head keep your hands so they are just in contact with it then slowly see if you can follow from the top of the head down the side of the head and over the shoulders. That’s all there is to it! Simples!!
It may take some practice, the same as anything else, but once you’ve done it once you’ll find it easy to do again. Once you feel confident enough, try to find different people to practice on.
You will feel the difference in other people’s aura which all change with how they are feeling health-wise and emotionally etc.
METHODS FOR READING AURAS
There are various different methods. I will give you a couple to get you started and see if they suit you. Feel free to find your own unique way.
SEEING THE AURA FROM YOUR FINGERTIPS
Although it might take a bit of practice, once you get the hang of it you will be able to see the aura fairly easily. I am not talking about picking up the sensations with psychic senses, but actually seeing with your own physical eyes.
Some people can sense the auras rather than see them, others can feel them as heat or cold or buzzing sensations rather than see them (with me it’s the resistance I’ve told you about.
First, make yourself nice and comfortable and relaxed. Try to find a room that is dimly lit, but not dark. Bringing your index fingers together almost but not quite touching. Now, look at the space between the fingers. While you do this allow your eyes to defocus slightly so you are not looking at it in a hard way. In a short space of time, you will be able to see a light hazy mist going from one finger to the other. Just practice this on yourself for a while so that you are confident you can see the most/energy. You are then ready to try to see other people’s auras. Try practising on anyone that will let you!
SEEING ANOTHER PERSON’S AURA
To work with another person you will need to be about 6 feet away from them. It is usually better if you can manage to have them with a neutral coloured background – grey or black is best but cream can work too. Just as long as the colour is not vibrant. Again the room needs to be dimly lit. This is not for any mystical reason at all. It is simply because it takes away distractions whilst you are learning. The energy is very subtle and until you are more accomplished in seeing the aura the fewer distractions the better!
Again, defocus your eyes and look at your subject without staring.
It is best to look at the area around the head. Although if you have practised on yourself before this you should now be able to see the bluey/whitish outline around the whole body (the etheric aura).
Don’t’ worry if you can’t see it straight away – practice will help. This outline sometimes looks as if it is shimmering – much like looking at a road on a sunny day and you see a heat haze rising.
Many do not see it the first time if you look directly where it is. Then like magic, the aura will seem to appear. This can take from 10 seconds to 2 minutes. Once you see the aura try not to get too excited lol or blink – keep relaxed and don’t look directly at it or it will ‘disappear’.
Keep your eyes focussed. Practice and you’ll soon see it 🙂
After you have trained your eyes you can look directly at the aura without losing it. Once you can see the outline, keep looking in that disinterested way and you should see colours starting to build outwards from the etheric aura (emotional aura). If you concentrate on the edge of the etheric aura (the blue/white edge around the body), again eyes slightly out of focus, you should soon be able to make out colours of the emotional aura. As said before the depth or intensity of the aura very much depends upon the vitality of the person. Therefore, you could see anything from a couple of inches to a couple of feet.
Like everything else in life, your skill will improve with practice. If you watch people who do Facebook lives or online videos that is a really good way to see their aura, just let your eyes totally relax and glaze over and you’ll see the aura. I’ve only just started to see colour within the last few days. But I’m going to keep practising so I will be able to see colours fairly clearly from now on.
SEEING AURA AROUND PLANTS AND TREES
Relax in the same way you have done for seeing auras around yourself and others. Get a bowl of flowers or a plant. Gently gaze beyond the flowers or the tree with a soft gaze as before. The aura will soon be seen as energy.
If you can look at treetops this is also a good way to develop your skill.
WHY CAN’T I SEE THE AURA
For most people, it takes time and practice. There are a few that are able to see the aura very quickly but for the majority of people, it takes a bit longer. Initially, we try too hard to see the aura. This is one of the things that you should try to avoid. It is very difficult as I can remember how excited I was when first trying. However, the trick is to relax, more like daydreaming, rather than straining. Seeing the aura is a technique that can be learned by most people. It is not a gift to some select few and not to others. It is simply a matter of practice, practice, PRACTICE!!!!
I will tell you more about what the colours mean another time, first practice seeing the actual aura first and I’ll keep practising to see colours and we’ll take it from there.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s tip.
