What is an Aura?
Every being emits an aura that is the qi field of their body. The ancient texts of many faiths and beliefs depict the Gods and Goddesses with a halo around their head, which is their aura. Auras are believed to be the electro-photonic vibrations of various frequencies and are related to our conscious activities like thoughts, emotions, etc. Auras around living beings change unlike around non-living things.
Purpose and Ability to see Auras
Seeing auras can help us find out about a person. The aura can tell a lot about the physical and mental health of the soul. Perceiving the auras can help in healing the imbalance in a person. Some people are born with the ability to see a person's aura, others have to develop it through practice, concentration and meditation. Auras are made up of various colors. These colors depict different moods, emotions, health and thoughts of the person and to see aura colors, we have to train ourselves.
Concentration is Must while Seeing Auras
In order to see auras, you have to develop concentration. For that you need to increase the sensitivity of your eyes and expand the range of perceived vibration from the visible region. These can be achieved by training, exposure and also by better coordination between the left and right hemisphere of the brain.
Color Pairs in Auras
The colors we see are surrounded by auras of a different color. Red & Turquoise, Turquoise & Red; Yellow & Violet, Violet & Yellow; Green & Pink, Pink & Green; Orange & Blue, Blue & Orange are the auras emitted by monochromatic colors. These combinations are not same as that on the color wheel and are applicable on intermediate colors too. Like the reddish-green color will give a pinkish-turquoise aura. Unlike the pairs on color wheel, auric color pairs are supported by nature too.
Cognitive Operation in Seeing Auras
Auras can either be seen or sensed physically. Most people fail to see the auras because they strain hard to see it. They can be seen only when you are relaxed and the eyes are not under any strain. Some also say that while daydreaming or in deep thought, when the eyes lose focus, you have the best opportunity to see auras.
Steps to See Auras
Begin with inanimate objects and primary colors, e.g., red colored book (the auras of blue and red are the brightest). Relax yourself and your eyes. Focus at a single point and concentrate. After a few moments, you will see a slight aura. At this point, you might be tempted to see it, but do not look anywhere else. Do not change focus and look at it. You can blink your eyes so that they do not water. The aura might disappear due to blinking, but it will come back.
After the first step, look for different primary colors. For ease, you can cover different books with color papers and start focusing. This is all for practice. Once you learn how to unfocus and concentrate, move to plants. Collect flowers with leaves and start the exercise similarly. You will see a pinkish-orange aura around the stem and leaves. Around a living plant, you will notice a shimmering, more distinct effect due to the living aura.
Knowing about the peripheral vision and technique to unfocus, try it on a human subject. Seeing human aura is very difficult as humans have a multitude of emotions and feelings. At first, you might just see a smoke sticking to their skin. Next, you will see their live aura (shimmering optical effect). The depth of this aura depends upon the person's mood. It is strong and brightly colored when they are in a good mood and vice-versa. Try to focus on their bare skin or at the center of the head.
Important to Note when Seeing Auras
Keep the subject against a neutral background, preferably white, to see a clear aura; with no mixing or overlapping of aura colors. If it doesn't work, go for a black background. Music enhances the mood, so, play the subject's favorite music to strengthen their aura. Do not try very hard to see the aura at the first try. It takes a lot of practice and mastering the technique to be able to see the living aura comfortably.
Clean Colors in Auras
Different aura colors signify different things and are divided into clean and dirty colors. Blue: Relaxed and balanced life and mind; born survivors. Turquoise: Dynamic, highly energized personality, organizers, managers, born leaders, easily capable of influencing others. Purple: Spiritual thoughts, never a stable color of the aura. Green: Restful, peaceful presence, natural healers.
Yellow: Joy, freedom, non-attachment, associated with a spiritual teacher. Orange: Feeling of upliftment and power, associated with exercising power, will to control others; strong spiritual leaders with unique capabilities.
Pink: Spiritual love, balance between spiritual awareness and material existence, rarely seen on earth and is never a strong point in the aura. Red: Materialistic thoughts, also associated with thoughts about the physical body. White: High spiritual vibration, considered godly and divine, often indicates pure state, associated with angelic qualities, is seen around pregnant or to-be-pregnant mothers.
Dirty Colors in Auras
Sulfur: Pain, anger, unease. Brown: Distraction, materialism, non-spiritualism. Gray: Depression, bad thoughts, a dark personality. Black: Associated with disease and death. Due to too much noise it is not possible to see a single color in such an aura; indicates hatred, lack of forgiveness and unresolved karma.
Combination of Aura Colors
A combination or mixture of basic aura colors is also seen. The colors might be present in different shades and intensities in the aura. They represent different states of being and have dissimilar meanings. So, if you are looking for a deeper understanding on this subject, it will only come through observation, practice, and exposure. Sometimes, you might require help from a proficient soul for guidance and explication. Also, concentration and perseverance is a must.
