Seeing the aura is a matter of taking our eyes slightly out of focus. If we've ever been able to see the holographic picture-in-a-picture art then we shouldn't have any trouble seeing auras as we do exactly the same technique with our eyes.
The first time this topic came up I had no luck whatsoever with seeing the auras of the other folks in the seminar. That night I went over to the bookstore and grabbed a bunch of the holograph picture books and sat there until I could relax my eyes and see them. The next day when I went back for the rest of the seminar I had no trouble seeing the auras of the other attendees.
Get a partner to work with. Have our training partner stand in front of a light-coloured wall in a dimly lit room. Get our partner to hold one finger in front of their face, about 6 inches out from their chin. Focusing our eyes on their finger, not their face. Have them remove their fingers yet keep looking at the same spot. Relax our eyes a bit to do this. Now, using that same relaxed vision, look at them. We should be able to see a little line that runs all around them a couple of inches out from the body.
The next layer out is even fainter and may have colours associated with it. The different meanings of the colours vary widely depending on who we're talking to. My advice in this area is to open up our awareness and see for ourself which colours seem to be associated most often with which types of people and their behaviours.
Play with this a bit. Does their aura change when they think happy thoughts? Sad thoughts? Angry thoughts?
Some people see auras instantly and others have to work at it. Don't be too put out if it takes a while. As we work with this we'll gradually become aware of even more subtle layers of energy that surround people. We may also find that we actually feel another person's chakras and even discern which is their dominant chakra, which tells us instantly how that person is likely to react to any given stimuli.
Colours are an important aspect of aura reading. Below is a description of the meanings different colours hold. When reading auras be sure to always trust our intuition.
This is a confusing colour. There is nothing wrong with black in one's aura. Black generally means one is shielding oneself from outside energies. This may also mean being unbalanced; one is hiding something or keeping secrets. A black ring usually indicates some form of abuse, adults who have not dealt with early abuse will carry this black ring till they are healed.
This comes in different shades. Gifted people have shades of blue in their aura. Intuitive people will show pale blue coloration within the purple bursting out like rays of sunshine, emanating from the heart outwards. A deeper blue may indicate loneliness. A very deep blue shows devotion, honesty and good judgment whereas muddier shades of blue indicates a domineering person or a tendency towards depression.
This colour may indicate growth in a person. Seen around the head and with other colours emanating in combination, it indicates a person who is developing mentally, intuitively and organizing within. Brown by itself may indicate lack of energy, or one who has become “stagnant”.
Indicates lots of spiritual energy, in tune with oneself. Muddy gold means one has not really come to terms with one's higher levels.
Usually seen around a thinker, an analytical person. Could indicate a “balanced” person. Intelligent people show this colour around their heads.
Sympathetic to others, dependable and has healing abilities. Muddier shade could indicate jealousy- like “green with envy”.
Can indicate intuition and creativity. Silvery gray shows femininity while darker gray may mean secretiveness or physical imbalance.
Bright orange means one is growing emotionally and paranormally. A dull shade means a person is unsure how to accept this growth. Muddy orange shows in a person with too much pride.
The colour of love, and honesty. It also depicts the quieter side of an artistic and creative person. Dark pink may indicate immaturity or changes with one's love life. Dull pink, however, watch out; Someone is lying.
The colour of intuition, a deeper purple hue shows a strong- willed and passionate person. It may also reflect intense erotic imagination and being over-bearing.
A colour of love or hate, strong emotions and a lot of energy. An intense red colour, however, may indicate a person ready to fly off the handle.
