Sensing Auras

If you are unable to see auras before practicing the tips outlined in this article, do not fret–try instead to sense the aura. You probably already do this all the time without even knowing it. Have you ever walked into your parent's bedroom after they've had a fight? They may have put on a smile and acted like everything was okay for your benefit, but you could sense the tension in the room. Maybe the air was thick or your father was emitting a weird "vibe." Speaking of vibes, how many times have you left a party or declined an invitation because the vibe wasn't right? We have all probably used this term without even realizing the weight behind our words.

When you pick up on a bad vibe, you really are sensing the vibrational energy of the human environment, or aura. If you spend your time around a group of really depressed individuals, you will eventually start feeling down in the dumps yourself. Likewise, if you hang out with upbeat, positive, outgoing friends, your own attitude will change to match theirs. Atmospheres are contagious. If you were able to see aura colors, you'd notice that the depressed group would be surrounded by rings of brown, whereas the happier group would radiate with shades of yellow.

Seeing Auras

  1. Turn off the lights and lie in bed or another area where you feel most relaxed. You don't want the room to be pitch-black, but you do want as little light as possible. In most cases, streetlights filtering in through the blinds or a nightlight shining in through a crack in the door should be sufficient.
  2. Hold your hands straight out in front of you. Don't stare hard, just gaze gently. An aura is not always a bright light, usually it is more of a haze.
  3. To understand the way you should be gazing, keep holding both hands in your line of sight, then focus your gaze on the bedroom wall in front of you. Your hands will be out of focus but still visible.
  4. Extend your two pointer fingers and very slowly move your hands towards each other so your fingertips are almost touching (think Michelangelo's famous painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.) The aura will appear as lines of blue and red light between the two barely touching fingertips. Then, try it again with all ten fingertips barely touching.
  5. Now slowly draw your hands apart, and you'll see slight streams of energy connecting each finger. Encourage your mind to visualize the energy increasing as you move your fingertips together and apart, back and forth. Bringing the fingers tantailizingly close together (but not quite touching) seems to increase and energize the auric flow.

Practice this technique whenever you can and you may discover, over time, that you are beginning to notice the same effects around people's heads. Although auras surround the entire body, they are brightest and most visible around the head. If you are fortunate to begin seeing full body auras, there are certain things you must know about the different colors. Aura colors are constantly changing depending on mood and location, but the band of color closest to the body is known as a Life Color, and is usually fixed. Here is a rough guideline of what the different aura colors indicate.

how_to_see_auras

Auric Colors

Red

Red is the color of stress or anger. There is a reason why the phrase, "seeing red" is used when one is experiencing an extreme state of emotion. When tempers flare, even the calmest aura color will suffer from a flash of red, and if someone has a red overlay, or hue, around them at all times, this can mean their interactions are often colored by anger or intensity. Red is a physical color typically found in businessmen, politicians and other highly ambitious people who have the focus and determination to accomplish any goals they set. A concentration of red light in an individual who does not otherwise exhibit that color usually indicates an ailment, usually around the throat or ears. Pink, on the other hand, is associated with sensitive, caring feelings, and is usually seen around women during pregnancy.

Orange

Orange is a healing and cleansing color, created when the vitality of red mixes with the optimism of yellow. Also a physical color, orange is associated with recovery from illness or trauma and can indicate both physical or mental vitality. Orange around the head means the person is tolerant and open-minded. Orange is also frequently seen in auras when the individual is coming upon a time of change, be it a new home or a new relationship. Orange appears when the past breaks open to forge new paths. Balls of orange light around the head mean that the person's mind is set on changing their life but may not be quite ready to do so; small flecks of orange and the changes have just recently begun. Pastel orange indicates new aspirations of a spiritual kind. This color is usually found in people who are seeking but have not yet found their new destiny. Because orange is the color of change, this color is often found in counsellors, social workers, and any other occupation that seeks to help people change for the better.

Yellow

Yellow is the color of energy and expression, optimism and cheerfullness. If the color yellow appears in pin-like streaks, however, it could mean that the person is experiencing a split in their personality, and struggling to merge their energetic, youthful demeanor with the grown-up demands of society. Their mind is torn between too many options, which tends to cause stress among people with this color in their aura.

Green

Green is the color of nature, of rebirth and renewal. Many doctors and healers have this color in their aura. Greens are straightforward and loyal, and truly want the best for everyone. Bright green means that person likes to help, whereas a sickly lemon color can indicate deceit or, more likely, envy. Rich emerald green indicates strength of character. In fact, any healthy shade of green is a positive sign; only dark black greens are negative, indicating an untrustworthy personality. Green is linked with blood pressure and the heart--as long as the torso emits a bright green light, the person is healthy.

Blue

Blue is an emotional color found in highly sensitive, spiritual individuals. Blues bring peace and calm to those around them, and exhibit a love of freedom and desire to reach new spiritual heights. Mediums who are able to hear spirit voices usually have bright blues in their aura, along with writers. An aura filled with bright blue means the person is very healthy and at peace. Visualizing ocean blue has a calming effect on the nerves and can even stabilize fever.

Indigo/Violet

Also emotional colors, violets and indigos are spiritually advanced individuals and activists. These people are also highly sensitive, usually able to see auras themselves. The darker the shade, the deeper the person's spiritual quest. These individuals recognize the importance of bodily purity and communication with the unconscious. Tapping into these colors within yourself may help you to expand your horizons. When violet mixes with white to create lavender, the person is incredibly advanced and has reached the pinnacle of understanding.

How to see aura?

brian from uk on May 21, 2020:

If your young i can unerstand how frustrating this can be if your not naturally born to see these processes i even have problems myself i became very frightened when 1st experienced this as a young tot so that part of me closed down. But i advise extreme patience, MEDITATION , BE OPEN MINDED, DO not CRITICISE YOUR SELF OR ANYBODY ELSE BECAUSE THERE DIFFERENCE OPEN YOUR MIND TO NEW EXPERIENCES DONT BEAT YOUR SELF UP WHEN NOTHING HAPPENS. If you sent your thoughts out into the universe the answer will come back eventually but be alert. If you have read in books you can also feel the aural colours and see it normal works for me when meeting new people sometimes feeling is a bit like been in a group of people you never seen before and you get a feeling about one of the group that make you feel uncomfortable for some reason. I went to an OM chant i first meet the facilitator i could see a light yellow hue around her head and shoulders but it never occured to me at the time till i saw it again around another facilitator who haopened to be the other faciltators chap. So dont give up practice and practice or give it a break and something else then come back to it

Trying_to_learn_things on May 20, 2020:

Hey, I tried to do the thing when you have your fingers, and trying to see auras.

I have tried many times, and doing the instructions the best as I can, but it won’t work.

I really want to learn how to see auras, can you help?

gingercinnamonycat on December 30, 2019:

can a teen have a violet aura? i mean since its sign of spirituality and wiseness what could it mean?

Someone on December 13, 2019:

My friend says i always have a dark red around me. What does that mean?

evanryan15 from Coventry on July 02, 2019:

Really awesome post.

brian from uk on April 22, 2019:

brian from uk on April 22, 2019:

I saw auras when I was three and half years old the way i could describe it was you know that film the cocoon and the aliens come out there skin disguise it was just like that but, remember I'm now almost in my mid sixtys. It scared me that much I started shutting down but not completely but never colours just pure brilliant spiky white

Ben Tideas on February 28, 2019:

I used to see auras until I was nearly 6. Now, nearly 60 years later, I'm still intrigued by the memories of seeing rainbow-colored emanations coming from people as soon as I wondered what they were feeling, or what they were like (if I'd never seen them before).

Now when I sit at a cafe or restaurant and see a young child staring at me, I smile, and wonder if that child is enjoying gazing at my aura and so I try to "puff up" my aura. Because when I was a child, I used to see auras CONSTANTLY, but I also knew that it was rude to stare at people! So I only once ever had the chance to STARE at someone's aura while she was looking past me, and her aura seemed to BECKON me! All the radiations from her body seemed to grow in size and changed in color as I gazed at her aura in the bright sunshine.

... oh yeah, every one of the colored radiations of her aura seemed to be independent of every other colored radiation, and they seemed to change in size and color and swayed like seaweed underwater. And this was the first and only time I was able to STARE at an aura - this was in the late 1950's, when kids should be "seen but not heard", OK?!

So, this was the only time I could actually see an aura long enough to examine it more closely than my 5 year old mind had ever done before (and sadly, that was the very last time, too!) But what I experienced then made me think that the aura was a very, very special life force ... and something we should never, ever take for granted.

Yeah, I've told my atheist friends that if they can't explain auras, then I don't have to explain my belief in a higher spiritual being or something. But definitely, I feel blessed for having had a childhood where I would see auras from my earliest memories until I started school.

Post script. I've led a very exciting, interesting and lucky life, and I just hope that those of you who try to learn how to see auras succeed. For me, I've since learnt how to "sense" auras, and have had a bit of luck seeing them a few times ... but not in color. That's okay for me. Just remember, a lot of young children CAN see them!

Have a great day!

Geoffry on December 24, 2018:

You know i have been seeing auras since i was 6 I thought it was my imagination but it felt real

Claude on June 21, 2018:

is it weird that like the aura around my hands were clear but i could see a black outline of it but it was just barely there. Anyone else have this happen?

Ella on May 17, 2018:

There is something wrong with me i see strings in the air of colors of blue yellow orange gree pink purple and i could change the color with my mind they just appear and sometimes i see fireflies or little specks of light in my preferal vision am i"gifted" or am i just crazy some one please help me

Rose on April 14, 2018:

I had a BRIGHT blue light from my hands. It only happened for a split second. It looked like my hands had a blue flashlight shining from them. I have not gotten and answer from anyone I have asked. I do have energy healing, but it isn't that strong unless I focus really hard. I really need an answer, I am very worried about this. I don't know what is going on. Please give me an answer as soon as possible.

Katie on April 12, 2018:

I see the energy, but it’s clear, just extra bright. Whenever I’m in class at school I always see this around the teacher and students in front of me. And now, when I look at the air I see it moving, like streams of clear moving lines and occasional sparks of color. I feel like I’m playing with the energy when I wave my fingers around. I turned off the lights (pitch black) and after a while I started to see purple waves. When i close my eyes it’s never just black it’s always like static. Just thought I’d share.

Paul on August 13, 2017:

Where do I get something to see the aura around people. Is it a special Camera lense

Freddy on July 10, 2017:

I tried this and my cat immediately started meowing, ran over to me and purred and wouldn't l ave me alone...

Cat on May 21, 2017:

Really helpful

Lexy on March 18, 2017:

I started to see auras like 1 year ago I didn't know what it was so I didn't really bother to research about it. Im only 14 and yesterday I started to research about auras, I started to see everyone's aura! Even my dog. But my friends aura is very very bright and I don't know why. Just 4 second s looking at her I could see it so bright! So I was just wondering if u knew why my friends aura is so very bright.

stacey on February 06, 2017:

what about grey?

Tia on October 10, 2012:

Today I saw this boys aura when I was talking to him. He also saids that he is a vampire. o.O

IndiRain on September 27, 2012:

I have seen auras for a long time. It used to be just on people. But now I see everythings aura and energy. It's amazing. Does anyone else?

Mesakh on July 11, 2012:

Help me please !!!

When i try to see my thumb (in practice). It looks like haze blue electrical light joining from my thumb. Is it happen to all of you ? Actually I started 3 days ago.

jolie on July 02, 2012:

i am 13 and i have always believed in witchcraft, auras, supernatural and paranormal things and i have just recently discovered that i can see auras...it is really cool, for all those people that look up a site like this and don't believe, you are idiots,why go and mess up someones belief system or religion, it may or may not be real,(i personally believe) but don't go ruining it for other people

failed aura visionary on June 07, 2012:

some people are lucky, naturally seeing auras. All kids five and under can see auras, but since we teach them nothing relating to that, they lose the skill. However, our "sixth sense", weakened as it is, allows us to sense somethings about our surroundings

Lucky-Irish-Lady on May 13, 2012:

Hi, I have a question. I can see only white around people when I try to see auras, how do I see full colours? Thanks! (;

Potiki Te Rangiita on May 13, 2012:

Hey everyone I'd like to tell you all about my FB page called "I see aura's" and was wondering if anyone was interested in jining it and discussing how to see auras and teach people who would like to know =) also I have a question.

I can see a few levels of auras and every now and then my hands start glowing blue. I was wondering what this could mean. My friend once healed a bird back to full health using his hands when they were blue. Do you think this might be a healing case????

Thanks

Tommy on May 12, 2012:

I have heard of these before...but it wasn't until tonight that I was reminded of Auras. I had never known much about it, and I don't deny something like this because I believve it is interesting. A close friend of mine tonight recalls a night we were together that she saw my Aura as white, she told me the definition..I can say in a sense it it very accurate how I have lived my entire life. That is how I stumbled across this site at such an awefull hr. of the night. If it very interesting and I really want to see what my mind and beliefs can really show me. Even if it is a vivid of everyones imagination, it sounds like a beautiful thing and I wouldn't mind experiencing it for myself.

WolfCrow on May 01, 2012:

kinda tired of seein some of you people on here commenting things saying this is bull, this is stupid, or there's no such things as auras. if you don't like or believe in this stuff, y u on tis site? cuz ur bored and have no life, and have nothing better to do?

well guess what. nobody cares about what u think hee. if you're just here to just talk crap on things other ppl enjoy, then go away. nobody wants your input if its going to be negative. we all think ur just a bunch of a-holes.

have a nice day. =)

Not-So-Fallen Angel on April 28, 2012:

Hi again! I tried your technique and it worked really well! My aura is sort of pale blue and white! Thanks so much! (;

Justin on April 25, 2012:

Hi! Thank you for this wonderful writing. :) I looked at my hands in the dark and did as you said and it revealed my aura!! :D Thank you :)

Not-So-Fallen Angel on April 20, 2012:

Hi! I'm really interested in this, ever since my friend told me a girl in her class can see auras. I can't wait to try out your tips and maybe see an aura too! (; thanks! ?

Britt on April 14, 2012:

Hey I I can see thos too and I'm 13. and omg I did it I did it I can sometimes see it yayaysyay

fletcher on April 03, 2012:

I am going to try this

i on March 29, 2012:

Hey everyone, I've been told that this is just in my head, but when I look beyond most moving objects, or are not paying attention directly to moving vehicles or people in my periphial vision I see a dark shadow trailing almost everytin at an angle above the moving person or vehicle...some are darker than others and are longer.... Kinda hard to explain...I'll admit that I am a very logical person and think most of this is a little more than silly, but cant deny what always catches my eye....

Any thoughts out there about this???

samuel on March 26, 2012:

IF THIS METHOD ABOVE DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU I SAW AURAS A COUPLE DAYS AGO IN MATH CLASS. FIRST THERE HAS TO BE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF YOU HAVE A DOT ON A WHITE BACKGROUND BEHIND THE PERSON BUT YOU CAN SEE IT. PUT A COULPLE OF PIECES OF WHITE PAPER IN FRONT OF YOU. STARE AT THE DOT FOR 15 TO 60 SECONDS YOU SHOULD SEE A WHITE HAZE IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR VISION KEEP STARING YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE A COLORED AURA AROUND TOUR SUBJECT DO NOT lOOK DIRECTLY AT THE AURA OR IT WILL GO AWAY. HOPE THIS HELPED. I am 12.

Skye on March 26, 2012:

OHHH it said dark room, I haven't read the directions in a while and basically reversed what they said. i thought i was supposed to be in a bright room and look really hard at my hands... i just tried doing it like it said and i almost got it... uhh ive been trying to do it wrong for months. now ive got it down and will practice more often. thank you so much

Empress on March 22, 2012:

Retinal imprint. My pale peach-colored hand has a complementary dark blue-purple "aura", and we all know indigo children can't be 33 (although back in the 80's, when I was a kid, I heard about indigo children - now they're still children... go figure!)

aura.. on March 22, 2012:

wow soo cool i have notice that i have a blue one

Charles m. on March 18, 2012:

How can you know what you are?

samuel on March 08, 2012:

i just tried what u said is it normal that when i do that with my finger i see the tip (middle joint up) of my finger again, like that part of it in front of my actiual finger?

samuel on March 08, 2012:

THX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM 12 AND I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND OUT ABOUT THIS!!! UR AWSOME

Candace on March 05, 2012:

I can see aura colors on people but did not know about the two fingers facing each other. I can see it easier that way! I have a video that shows the electricity in the dark around our bodies. Electricity when we are alone and how it changes according to who is near us. This is all so intelligent. Science. Synergy and chemistry.

Valorie Maya on March 05, 2012:

I like your article so much I'm providing a link to it in a blog post on http://www.Happy-Earthlings.com. I hope that's all right. I wanted to provide people with a good explanation of what auras are, and thought a your article would be a great addition to the blog.

Joy on March 03, 2012:

Of course we have auras. Its our energy. In the past people could never have conceived of planes, television, radio, cameras, and they thought the earth was flat. I learned how to see my aura shooting from my fingertips. Some days its strong, some days weaker. We sense the auras of others and call it "chemistry". Its not supernatural, its just nature.

mark lewis on February 27, 2012:

ok basically a few days ago i got bored and stared at my hand near a white wall i began to see a blue colour outlining it, i researched on the web and found out i was seeing auras i must have been born with it as i have been noticing it since i was 5, i seem to be able to see them perfectly but i have trouble when i try to stop seeing them they don't go away help am i a freak ?

ETSF on February 23, 2012:

I actually have hazel eyes also...... ive been able to see auras since i was little, im 13 years old now and im trying to heighten my auric sense of sight.... like, my friend today was talking to me and i felt a weird feeling and the aura around her was dark blue, which im guessing it means inner fear... and was experienceing that too...... if anybody has any ideas on how to heighten auric sense tell me! ETSF.

dan on February 17, 2012:

trust your feelings. the heart never lies.

indigoman45 on February 04, 2012:

Every single day my aura seems a little different than before. Can someone explain this? And hazeleyedgarret, I'm also 11 and I have hazel eyes. Cool

thorts on February 03, 2012:

people who think this is stupid, just have no idea what they are talking about and obviously have never experience this.

harvey(my dogs name) on February 02, 2012:

i can also see auras but you can test if you can or not by having a bright pink circle and a bright blue circle next to each other with a black dot in the gap and stare at the dot for 30 seconds and you will begin to see a blue line around the pink circle and a pink line around the blue circle

DSD on February 02, 2012:

I've seen my aura quite I few times. Today, it's now a beautiful light torquoise colour, but it used to be a sea green. :)

hazeleyedgarrett on January 31, 2012:

Actually Dolphingirl black is usually used in reference to life....im sure you'll figure it out :D

HazelEyedGarrett on January 31, 2012:

Im just 11,but i can see auras pretty easily. I go to church and everything it's just ive had a hunch about what ive been seeing for a while.I first noticed it (that i can remember)this year sortof going in and out of states of vision with my teacher and the "outside aura" is kinda murky brown. Ive also heard that having hazel eyes has sometihng to do with it.This is really interesting......

Dolphin Girl on January 21, 2012:

I just started seeing auras and I've picked up turqoise lights from many people. There is just one thing that concerns me. I saw my mother's aura one day and it was a pitch black halo surrounding her. What does it mean? Is my mother ok? Could she be in danger of any sort?

lunakat on January 19, 2012:

I can't stand the negatve comments of people. leave people to believe what they want to believe. you can do that without bringing down others. For those that say its bullshit, let me ask you something. do you believe in God? if the answer is yes. where is the proof? You don't have hard scientific evidence, but you still believe, right? there is no difference by your pissy comments saying that auras are not real just because science hasn't backed it up yet. they may one day. did they have proof since creation that the world was round?that a sperm and egg create a baby? answer is no! but it doesn't mean it wasn't true, it just took some time to prove it. stop being simple minded your life will be so much more fufilling and interesting.

dennis on January 18, 2012:

some people would not see a priest on a mountain of sugar

indigoman45 on January 11, 2012:

A few years ago I woke up seeing indigo all over me and it freaked me out. Now I'm used to it. I also see my dead dog and grandpa and two uncles. It makes me sad when I see them sometimes.

Caitie on January 11, 2012:

Today, I've tried seeing aura's. I tried it on my dad and two sisters and all I see is a pale white gaze around their heads. Is that just when you're starting to learn?

Anthony on January 10, 2012:

I woke up today and saw glowing golden lights flickering and moving around my field of vision (my head area) and it was weird. I did nothing out of the ordinary and was just getting out of the shower - I cannot see auras or wasn't even really aware of them up until recently but - the information for "Yellow" really explains exactly what I am going through so I guess I can indeed see auras.

Suke on January 09, 2012:

If people proves it's real then it's real, only hard to do it. Not impossible.

buddingpsychic on January 03, 2012:

So THAT'S why people are "green with envy"! It's in the aura!By the way, would people who are normal still be able to teach themselves to see auras?

Melody on January 03, 2012:

I've started to see auras, very faint colors, but mostly clear haze if I focus really hard on a person's face. I'm really interested in this stuff, and apparently I can see the dead also. Just recently, I looked at the roof of an old, empty building and saw a person agilely jumping off the platforms like a feather. I started freaking out and my friend said it was a ghost, she could tell by his aura and I was like freaking out even more, lol. I think maybe I've seen auras when I was little, since I remember weird colors staring off into space, but other than that I don't remember. Just don't forget to practice this to awaken your psychic muscle!!! Society needs this back to realize that humans aren't the highest power and so we can be a humble, wise race again.

Anyway, have fun everyone who believes!

indigoman45 on December 31, 2011:

And for all of you who are pretending to see auras just don't bother. And indigo children rock. And auras do exist

indigoman45 on December 30, 2011:

Are you supposed to see your aura around your shadow's head? Because I sort of did like the past few days. And I've also been able to see auras since I was one

Don Winslow on December 27, 2011:

lexie 4 weeks ago

For those that don't believe one can see auras, you should really try the exercises... I did one where I stared at my forehead in the mirror (about 1 metre away) and softened my focus (so your vision is a tiny bit blurry), and it took me only about 5 minutes before I could see the white light around my head and shoulders!! It happens in your peripheral vision, but it's very clear. Now I can see some colors, including green around my fingers. I can also see the 'energy streaming' between my fingers. It's not hard, just takes a little practice. There are many exercises listed on the web if you search for it, as well as some videos on youtube.

Yes!!! What Lexie wrote here is exactly what I do, as well. The one thing I do a little different is shortly after I soften my focus a bit. I will step back just a little further away from the mirror, hunching down just a bit. It's at this point that I focus directly on my aura, rather than with my peripheral vision. Sometimes, I'll see massive amounts of bright green, or blue. Occasionally, I'll see white, purple, or gold.

Another exercise you can do is to check out your own aura in the shower or the bathtub. It helps if the tub is white, so the aura stands out more. This way, you'll see that the aura literally does cover every square inch of the human body. It's just easier to see around the head and shoulders when we're dressed. I hope this helps some who are researching auras.

Don Winslow on December 23, 2011:

If there is one thing I know, it's that science doesn't have a logical explanation for everything out there. Seeing or sensing auras has nothing to do with pseudo-sciences. Auras are absolutely real. I can see them clearly with my naked eye. Skeptics are just too closed-minded to see them. They certainly have a right to their opinions. However, I can testify that what the vast majority of the posters on this thread are saying is true.

My own aura is usually a bright green. However, lately it's been shifting to a brilliant blue. Occasionally, I'll see purple, like what I see in my wife's aura. My son's aura has been appearing green. My daughter's is usually yellow, unless she's upset about something.

A good way to learn to see the aura is stand in front of your bathroom mirror. It helps if the wall behind you is white, so it will stand out more. Standing as close to the mirror as you would when brushing your teeth or shaving, try to focus on one central spot on your forehead. Although it may be tempting, try not to shift your focus anywhere else, even if you start to notice a white haze around your head, shoulders, or both. If you can keep your focus on your forehead for a minute or two, you might start to see the white haze as a different color. It has nothing to do with what your favorite color is, or what color clothes you're wearing. I see the same colors, regardless of the background color, or what I'm wearing.

The more spiritually aware you are, the brighter your aura will appear. Just keep practicing. Sometimes, it takes a few weeks, or even months. Some may not see them at all. However, all of us absolutely can see them. Clairvoyance is a gift that we all have. It's partially because of that amazing pineal gland we all have that we can see auras.

Don't let skeptics get you down with their comments. They just don't know, since they don't see them. Society tends to discredit what they don't understand. However, times are changing. We're entering an era that is far more spiritual. We just need to learn how to integrate science and spirituality, as well as trust in our intuitive gifts. We all have them. We just don't all remember we have them.

Some of you may have come across a webpage that explains how to see auras with a two circles, one red and one blue. That particular exercise just shows an after-image, which isn't the aura. Being able to see or sense auras allows you to protect yourself. I keep my aura strong. A healthy aura absolutely has an effect on others around you. An unhealthy aura doesn't have to stay that way. I see unhealthy auras all the time. They'll often appear dark red, a muddy brown, gray, or even black.

This seems really interesting and i'd like to try it . I wonder if this would work for slightly depending on what people are thinking, but mostly feeling. I'm young so i would like to try this out early to have learned and be a pro. soon. I hope I am able to accomplish a great gift like this one. Although I happen to have ADHD so I have a hard time focusing. Also for any aura readers out there, how do you know you're not just imagining it? I'm sure if you have enough mind control you can trick yourself into thinking you're seeing any color you want to. I know I do. I am not trying to say it doesn't work, nor am I saying it does. I just would like to create the understanding of the learning of aura reading . Thanks and also, does anyone have any tips for me? I am a beginner so any help is much appreciated .

I've been seeing spots of color randomly. Not sure if it's aura, but it's all the colors described here. I actually googled why am I seeing patches of color and this showed up.

Teg on November 29, 2011:

OMG! It really works, its an amazing expirience, guys!

Sometimes things happen for a reason. When was your last time you was really in a situation with no exit and out of nowhere a though so creative and amazing pop out of the blue.

What is higher than you is constantly observing you and your path you follow .If you are out of your path then it interferes in mean of thoughts usually. That's what's happening to those that assume what they havnt been tough is a lie...and yet they found them selfs in a page like this one. Please people if you come to a page like this one and you don't like it leave quietly no need to disturb what's so nicely blooming. Those that let there emotions affect them have no discipline on there minds ,no discipline on there minds equals to someone whose controlled by what is stronger than him.

For the rest of the people keep living in love and happiness share your experiences and always try see the light in a cloudy day :D

shahrukh on November 27, 2011:

man i was actually able to see it!

very useful information you gave on colors :Heads up

lexie on November 26, 2011:

For those that don't believe one can see auras, you should really try the exercises... I did one where I stared at my forehead in the mirror (about 1 metre away) and softened my focus (so your vision is a tiny bit blurry), and it took me only about 5 minutes before I could see the white light around my head and shoulders!! It happens in your peripheral vision, but it's very clear. Now I can see some colors, including green around my fingers. I can also see the 'energy streaming' between my fingers. It's not hard, just takes a little practice. There are many exercises listed on the web if you search for it, as well as some videos on youtube.

Nati on November 15, 2011:

No need for me to turn off the lights i can see it clearly

Julia Schulte-Strathaus on October 20, 2011:

Great article! I've been seeing auras since I can remember, when I was in kindergarten, I was known as "The witch" .. so sad. Anyway, thanks for the color chart, it's very well done. Although I must say that there the color descriptions lack detail, there aren't any major mistakes, just a few parts missing. I'm studying psychology because it just interests me so much :) It's a very useful advantage if you do it correctly, I can tell you that! I don't know how many times it helped me back in school when I could tell in what my teachers were in...:P My grandmother says I'm a median, just like here, and I noticed how much easier and faster it gets to read and sense an aura close by. Besides the fact that I have ESP (extra sensory perception) reading auras is truly a fantastic gift that one can have. Oh before I forget, for all the "non-believers": STOP. Stop being so ignorant and closed minded! Everybody is different, and we need to celebrate those differences, because it is them that make us who we are. I hope that made people realize how silly it is not to accept the fact that there are electromagnetic fields surrounding everything. There are just people out there that can do more than you can. It's really ok. haha. ok. I think that's about all I wanted to say :)

jihad on October 18, 2011:

all you people saying this is bull r just angry ive been able to see colours around people all my life and ive always been good with vibes but i always would stop paying attnetion in school and wat not to look at people auraus usaully i see a clear or yellowish but sometimes other colours i tried the finger thing and i got violet/blue/indigo not sure which one the reason i searched this was because i saw my aura for the first time and it was a black a dark black and i kind of freaked i was scared so i decided to google it because id never seen black ti doenst say what black means but i think it might be ghost ? just atheory my house is haunted well i think it is and so does everyone else but i saw it then waen i looked to my right again the sidei saw the black the shades on my window werel ike moving like somebody hit them or the wind was blowing idk freaky stuff but its nice to know that im nto crazy or i need my eyes to be checked its nice to know theres nothing wrong theres something right extraa right :P

August on October 16, 2011:

I'm curious as to why people who are dissing auras are looking them up at all. You are wasting everyone's time by having them read your comment. I personally like this method of seeing the aura. It works a lot faster and is a lot more effective than all the others that I've tried. Thanks to whoever wrote this page!

bb-jackal on October 06, 2011:

Alright, I can see a flickering light outlining everything (sort of like staring at a lightbulb then moving; just without the lightbulb but in an outline of everything).. What now??? Any sort of abilities that come with this; or is it just flashy lights?

robin on September 27, 2011:

Since I was around the age of 4, ive been seeing colors in the shapes of balls just floating, sometimes I now see lights when im alone... im 20 now and I realize the things im seeing are only seen by me... its really creeping me out.

quinton on September 22, 2011:

i heard about this today from one of my teachers. hopefully,i will be able to see them. thanks and wish me luck.

Tori on September 21, 2011:

why do I only see green and purple auras ? And I can only see them when my object is not moving and is in front of white backround.

I have tried many ways to open my 3rd eyes. Some experts say you must clean your mind don't think of evil or dirty things otherwise your experience of seeing aura will be interrupted or intruded by hallucinations or spirits. It is like practicing magick, clear your mind when your sensitivity to spiritual things is stimulated otherwise you will attract negative energy... that's difficult to do!

My problem is I can't be relax when practicing. All I feel is pain and anger since I have been unlucky all the time this life makes me only have negative vision of my future. My life is full of bad lucks, fear, anger, disappointment, hopelessness, and pain. I've always faced bad results whenever I felt confident when achieving something so that's why I can't be relax.

john on September 16, 2011:

the people who say its bull they can just go get one up the ass in prison i believe it im starting to see them and just need pactist my sister can see them clearly.

so have fun and if you meet some one who said it was bull PUT THERE LIGHTS OUT

Theo on September 14, 2011:

Seeing the aura is a metaphor within the brain.

Our DNA and cells do emit light, Biophotons, but this light is not very intense or bright and cannot be seen by the human eye. Out auras are more then just light. Light is electromagnetic energy, just like the energy that cooks within microwave ovens but at a different frequency. Our brains and nervous system contain the same energy used to light a light bulb, electricity and have an electromagnetic field like electricity too. That's why MRI scans of the brain work. Our auras are electromagnetic fields and are kinda like the field around a magnet. The stronger the magnet the stronger the field. The healthier the person the more intense or brighter the aura, depending on the frequency of the field it is perceived to be a certain colour. Our brains are wired to only see a certain range of electromagnetic waves or the rainbow of colour, more do exist. If our eyes and brains did not evolve to filter out we would see more colours. Dragonfly's for example have the ability to perceive our colour range but also ultraviolet and infra-red light. Those who can see auras do not have an extra sense, it is present in all living things, but have learned to bypass or turn off the filters in our brains and attune to certain types of electromagnetic radiation or energy & is manifested in the brain through the metaphor of colour. Those who do not believe in such things or cannot notice the synchronicities that make up life may have more filters activated in their brains. Sceptics should look into quantum mechanics. Spirituality is a metaphor. Some people need facts, the facts are starting to show up in quantum mechanics.

Rin on September 11, 2011:

I must say this or maybe not but for those of you who do not believe in auras----why are you reading this article? I mean I must say if you do not believe in auras then why are you even reading this article. If you don't believe in auras I bet you wouldn't even have bother in reading this article but if you read this article I think maybe you or somehow in your heart you are tempted to know about auras.

Ice on September 10, 2011:

those who do not believe in aura, listen up. No, im not going to go on about how your just nonbelivers, im going to say that, well, you know that electromagnetic electricity running around your body? That is what your aura is. we can see those frequencies as color fields.

Davina on September 10, 2011:

I enjoy reading about other people's experiences,especially with seeing auras. To all of those who have negitive comments about such, I have many of my own for just about any belief of non belief you may have. Even so, it isn't my place or right to voice them. There is nothing saying what is right or wrong, except for what you believe in your heart to be true. Now, I'll give my opinions on the subject based on what all you judge-mental people are saying. I do agree with one thing, you can either see them or you can't. However, I will also say that for those who can see them, it may be vague or faint, but still there and your mind, third eye needs to be 'trained.' Many many generations back, people didn't need to be trained. Today, some do. Why? That's simple...what are we all doing right now? Comparing to before, they had nature and nothing but intuition to keep their minds free and open. Now, we have computers, televisions, jobs, bills to pay and everything else technology has brought forth. I'm not saying anything bad about it...obviously sense I'm on a computer...but I believe that is exactly why we aren't naturally as open as our ancestors once were. I also believe there are plenty of people out there who cannot see auras. If the witch trial days were still here, people wouldn't be voicing things as much as they do, especially if it weren't true. For all of you that are meant to see auras for whatever reason(s) that may be, don't take your gift for granted. For all of you that can't, maybe you just simply need to clear your mind. If you still can't see them, maybe you aren't meant to, even so, never let someone tell you that you that knowledge, curiosity and something that you feel drawn to is wrong. And for all of you posting all of the nasty, negative comments...really? we aren't the ones 'ruining the world' or 'dreaming' or 'think we have super powers.' Let me explain something to all of you. I don't believe that I have to defend myself, but I do believe that a lot of this hatred torward something that you 'suposively' don't believe in, your awful bored to even have found this site. But understand this, we did not stone our ancestors to death, or put one of our own on a cross and watch him die. Nor did we literally let animals demolish others for having different beliefs. You have no right to attack us, just as we have no right to attack you. I don't blame any of you for what your ancestors do or the beliefs you have that I may think rediculous. And for all of you defending us with insults back, don't stoop to their level. We are much better than to be like that, and hopefully those that are posting these horrid comments will realize they are also better than to be so judge-mental again something that they simply don't understand...Or maybe, a couple of them may and they are scared of it? There are plenty of posibilities, but you all have my love and so much others that we don't need to look to the hatred, we have no room in our hearts for that. Thank you to all you that are showing support, and I wish you all the best. Blessed Be.

celestineprophecy on September 05, 2011:

Since i read the celestine prophecy like 10 years ago I have always wanted to read auras....but no matter how hard I try it just wont work could somebody help me please I would love to experience what you guys r experiencing..I even know how to do the magic eye..I though it would help me see auras as you need to unfocus but as of now still not workin help me please

Jackie :) on August 26, 2011:

I recently just saw my first aura :) lol it was a banana but it was still a big accomplishment for me! I have tried to see humans and animals auras but I'm just not there yet and only see a glow around there head but only flashes of colors >.

zhoriel on August 20, 2011:

thanz for the info i will try it...

Lyzard on August 08, 2011:

IDK much about auras but some times i'll get this odd feeling. Such as when my mom gets so stressed she starts crying i'll become really stressed for no apparent reson... though maybe that doesn't mean anything and i'm over reacting. It's just that sometimes i can feel what others feel...

Canis Lupus on August 06, 2011:

Been trying to see Auras for a long time now, on-and-off, and still haven't gotten further than the bright blue outlining on my hands, and that color has always been the same, never red, yellow, green etc, just a bright blue outlining. So is "Seeing" the aura really possible? Maybe, maybe not. But I'm not known to quit on these things.

Orgoniteangel on July 22, 2011:

For those who wants to see aura, there is an eye exercise that you can learn at Thiaooubaprophecy.com .

skye on June 17, 2011:

Hey again. thank all of you for your help, i kinda forgot to try to see auras for like 6 months. but now im starting up again. i still kinda see auras without color, like seeing through water or glass that is kinda fogged up but i only see it sometimes. You should thank your friends who know about this stuff or are interested. Here everyone is just interested about who's dating who or who has started drinking or doing drugs (this is scaring the hell out of me cause some of my friends have already started to do drugs and shit and were only 13). Dang the world is screwed up. anyways, for all you people who don't believe in auras, were not trying to change your what you think so GET THE HELL OFF THE SITE AND STOP CRITICIZING WHAT WE KNOW OR ARE INTERESTED IN. DON'T TRY TO TELL US OTHERWISE CAUSE ITS USELESS. WE ARE BELIEVERS AND WE CHOSE TO DO SO. Now anyways, one of my older friends is really into auras and knows all about them and chakras and ghosts and everything. if you are into this stuff like I am what you should try to find friends who are also interested in the same stuff, that way you have more in common with him/her/it/them. this goes for all topics. Remember to never give up on your hopes and dreams. i never was able to see auras before but Im not giving up on trying and neither should you if you cant yet either. Everything takes practice.

Peace out,

Skye Berman
