Easy New Way to See Auras

All colours have a uniquely coloured aura of their own that are of a

completely different colour. These auras, given off by colours, are denser

and far easier to see than any other aura. Using this as a basis, I have

designed a simple, graduated training method that has most people seeing an

aura the first time they try it.

The auric colours you will see building up from coloured objects are similar

in appearance to the after images generated by staring at a brightly coloured

shape and then quickly looking at a neutral coloured wall. The similarity in

the colours, rather than contradicting the validity of the auric colours of

colour, confirms them. Why would they be any different?

You can, in the early stages of learning to see auras, cause an after image

that is still seen when you look away. This is caused by staring too hard,

and for too long, resulting in colour depletion of the rods and cones in the

eyes. With practise, much less effort is needed and no after images are seen,

only the aura.

The way the aura builds up is totally unlike the way an after image appears.

If, while an aura is building up, you shift focus slightly, or blink, it

disappears instantly. An after image does not.

I have been able to see the human aura for many years. I was not born with

this ability but taught myself. It took me several years! I know the problems

inherent in learning this and the new training method is designed to overcome


What is an Aura?

The human aura is an energy field that reflects the subtle life energies

within the body. These energies make us what we are and in turn are affected

by our surroundings and life style. The aura reflects our health, mental

activity and emotional state. It also shows disease - often long before the

onset of symptoms.

Close to the skin is the etheric aura. It is seen as a pale, narrow band that

outlines the body, usually no more than half an inch wide. It looks like pale

smoke clinging to the body. This is the visible part of the etheric body in it

's contracted state. During sleep the etheric body expands greatly and opens

to absorb and store cosmic energy. The etheric is better named the vitality

sheath or energy body. After sleep it contracts, forming a dense sheath

around the body close to the skin.

The main aura is banded around the body - strata like. Imagine a person with

thick, coloured hoops of light dropped over them and you get the idea. These

colours emanate from the chakras. Basic energy is drawn up from the planet

through the feet and fed into the chakras, much like a plant does with water.

Each chakra is a transformer that generates energy of a different type and

colour. The strength of each chakra depends on the person's nature and life

style. Together these chakras generate the dominant hue of the aura.

The main aura is photo-sensitive, it reacts and expands in light. The aura's

chakra system can be likened to a tree. Energy/nutrient is drawn up through

the feet/roots and fed through the body/trunk to the chakras/leaves.

Many experts suggest people can be classed by the basic hue, or the dominant

colour, of their aura. For example, Blue means a highly spiritual person,

trustworthy, honest. Orange means an emotional type of person etc... I have

found this to be misleading. The aura is a complex and changeable engine and

cannot be judged so simply.

The aura is sensitive to colour. It reacts to the colours of clothing and to

that of its surroundings. This accounts for our natural likes and dislikes

when it comes to choosing the colours that surround us.

The effect of colour on the emotions is well known and are they widely used

in hospitals and institutions to calm agitated people and put them at ease.

Pink is the most frequently used colour for this. It is the emotional colour

of love and happiness. Watch a mother's aura when she first looks into the

eyes of her new baby, and falls head over heels in love. At that special,

happy moment, you will see this most lovely of auras in all its glory.

There is a whole science devoted to the use of colours. This is called Colour

Healing or Colour Therapy.

It is impossible to get a clear view of the aura through clothing. The auric

colours of the clothes react with the person's aura, causing interference

that blocks and changes it. For example: A Blue shirt will flood the natural

aura with Yellow. Even neutral coloured clothing will block and dim the aura

making it difficult to see.


This shows up in the aura in many different ways, sometimes weeks before any

physical symptoms. An ear infection, for example, will show up as a shadow

over the side of the head before any symptoms appear. This shadow will

gradually change into a murky, khaki Green. As the infection takes hold, it

will become shot through with Red and Orange flecks. Khaki and murky Green

with Red and Orange flecks, is commonly seen with any infection.


When a person is dying the aura changes dramatically. I have observed the

auras of people with terminal cancer in the weeks prior to death. First the

aura fades and weakens, and then, a week or so before death it expands,

changing into a beautiful pale Blue shot through with Silver sparks.

Why most people fail to see the Aura

The most common reason people fail to see the aura when they first try is

simply the way they go about it. The human aura is not a good training ground

for beginners.

This is what usually happens: Your volunteer sits and waits, for a long time,

while you strain for a glimpse of their aura. You are trying to relax and

concentrate and master a tricky visual technique, all at the same time. You

subconsciously worry about what they are thinking of you. Are they getting

bored or impatient? Do they think you foolish, a failure, or both? This kind

of pressure causes tension that effectively negates the relaxed state needed

to see the aura. Trying to get results under this kind of pressure, as a

beginner, is next to impossible.

Email letters from a young man. It shows a common problem encountered when

trying to see the aura:

David: "I was sitting in Economics class when I started to see a faint white

glow (not really though, I can't really describe it), it was surrounding the

sides of his head. And I could also see a similar one coming from one of the

students sitting in front of him, except the student's had a sort of bluish

tinge to it. Then I started to see the same thing coming from some of the

computer monitors that sit on the desk. At first, I was hoping that I could

see auras but then when I saw it on the monitors, I had my doubts."

My Answer: Every living, and non living thing has an aura, including

monitors. The reason you saw them when you did is {let me guess} You were

very relaxed, maybe day dreaming a little. Your eyes were tired, relaxed, and

these are the PERFECT conditions for seeing the aura.

David: "That's exactly how I was. The discussion sort of went off topic and

wasn't all that interesting to me."

David: "Anyway, I was wondering if you can tell me if I actually did see

their aura. I tried staring at myself in the mirror to see my aura but it

didn't work and I haven't been able to see their auras since that day a week

or two ago. As for some of my questions. I was wondering what colours

non-living objects give off (is it white?), how come it was brighter on their


My Answer: You did see the aura! The colours given off by non-living objects

vary with the colour of the object. The human aura is brighter around the

head area for two reasons: 1. Clothing blocks the aura. 2. The head area is

usually bare and is where the YELLOW of intellect is most active. This yellow

varies in intensity according to the degree of mental activity. Maybe the

student you observed was really on the ball that day.

How to see the 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 varies 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 thick.

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 practise 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.

I have taught many people to see the aura using this method. The fast results

build confidence and keep interest high. This ensures enough work and effort

is put in to get the desired results... seeing the human aura.



Seeing and Reading the Aura

Have a friend lie or sit in front of a white or black background, preferably

naked (or skyclad), the lighting should be very dim, so that shadows dance

upon the walls or scenery, and colors are not absorbed by the presence of


They should remain perfectly still, unmoving and undisturbed. While they do

this, your or the member of the circle should center and enter a light form

of trance, be open to astral energies around the area.

- Let your eyes relax, your thoughts fade, loosen your muscles and be open to

what you will try to percieve. See the person on the still form of your

subject, and try to see or to feel any energy they may give off. Is there a

glare around them, a slight line of blurred or foggy color, lighter or darker

than those surrounding them; is there a wave like heat being given off.

Concentrate and trust in what you see. Look closely into any bright spots,

which may appear as light or just dim variations within the astral body (or

aura), the changes or patterns may be subtle at first but with practice and

time you will begin to perceive these colors more easily.

Colors of the auras can mean many different things, an emotion, a character,

a quality of the person who exudes them, note how you feel; does it attract

you, unease you; are you comfortable around the person, does the sight offer

you any changes within yourself, take turns letting each person try to view

and each person be viewed - find which ones are bright, easiest to perceive,

or seen by the most. Also see which ones hold brighter variations of the same

color, and try to find out why there is the similarity.

Once this has been practiced and used effectively, try these exercises to

further advance uses of the astral mind and body...... Under usual

circumstances we are surrounded by the aura on all sides, it extends just

beyond the mortal flesh and is bonded to the physical body. Blindfold one

person, and let another walk to within about three feet of the person, see if

they can tell when you are near, try to feel it change in the surrounding

air, or in your own inner feelings to tell when they have entered the

perimeter of the aura, change and try it yourself.

Take a pendulum, and hold it over your hand- (a pendulum may be anything upon

a string, preferably light weight, which is free to move or swing in any


- Try to move energy through your arm and out of the hand, move the pendulum

to within about three inches of your fingers, and see if you might raise

enough power to cause the pendulum to tilt or swing when it touches the outer

layers of your aura. Use the pendulum to check others, to find where the

perimeter of the aura lies, tell them to meditate on expanding the aura, and

see if it moves earlier than before, or if the movement is less subtle. Sit

facing each other, legs crossed, knees touching, eyes transfixed upon the

person before you - each persoon should use their hand to "feel" where the

aura is strongest or the weakest, if a person is ill then there may be a

location where it seems the aura has no color, or may even hold more color

than other parts of the body, the color in this case is the feel you get from

being in contact with the other persons astral form.

Now sit in the same way, still facing, yet in different rooms, with a wall

between you, or farther away than before.

One should be the "sender" and the other the "reciever", the sender should

try to visualize a one of four elements


For earth- the sender might visualize a dark cave about them, might feel the

weight of the world literally on their shoulders, cool , moist, shadowed,



For water- deep flowing silk of the sea, drifting them into their own

thoughts, cool, moist, healing and emotional.


For fire- exploding rifts of a volcano, filling the spirit with passion and

light, warm, dry, and active.


For air- the passing clouds, of a bird in flight, carried swiftly upon the

four winds, warm, dry, imaginative and vivacious. The receiver should try to

feel which one of these is being exuded by their parter, feel the change in

temperature, or the shifting patterns of thought as you contemplate to

answer, feel the emotional qualities it offers you and compare what you think

with the other, notice any keys which may lead to your decision.
