Find out how to see auras for beginners through this article. But first we will explain the basics of what auras are and later on we will look at how to learn to see them.

What are Auras and Chakras?

In order to give proper context, the first question that that needs to be answered is what the aura is and how it is different from chakras (for more information about chakras, see my previous post What are Chakras and How do they Work).

Are Auras and Chakras the Same?

Auras and chakras are not the same thing. Whereas chakras can be seen as energetic valves, acting as pathways for energy to be absorbed and metabolised, the aura is an energy field that surrounds the body like a subtle cloud or layers of halos.

Why do People Have Auras Around them?

The aura is a real-time reflection of our “moment-to-moment” physical, emotional and spiritual ‘true self’. It is something we cannot hide and is on continuous display for those who have a reasonable level of development of their visual paraperceptions, or clairvoyance.
There are many subtle layers of the aura. The energetic frequency of each layer is the lowest (more dense and lowest frequency) closest to the physical body and increases in frequency (less dense and higher frequency) further away from the body. Because of this, the aura is most easily visible in the layers closest to the body. However even then, due to the subtle nature of this energetic vibrational frequency, one may have difficulty seeing the aura without training or a natural personal pre-disposition towards clairvoyance.

Do Plants Have Auras? Do Animals Have Auras?

Yes and yes. Animals and plants also have auras. And because plant auras are less complex than human auras, they are well suited for practising ‘aura viewing’.

What are Auras Colours?

Depending on the physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of the person, the aura may change a lot in shape and colours. The issue of aura colours is complex and may depend on a variety of factors, including but not limited to the person’s own pre-dispositions (shall we say in ‘colour production’) as well as those of the observer (in ‘colour perception’).
Ideally, a more serious self-researcher will take notes time and time again when perceiving a particular colour in the aura around another person, taking into account all possible variables of the situation such as place, environment, what that person one is observing may be speaking about, how they were feeling at that time, etc. etc.
Putting all of this information into an organized context, over many of these documentations, one begins to realise that when they see colour “x” around a person, it tends to mean “x, y & z”. This method is a valuable and important tool in developing one’s own visual paraperceptions and gaining more certainty around the information that comes with sensing non-physical information. The more experiences we accumulate, the more trustworthy (accurate) our perceptions become.

How Big are Auras?

Most human auras may extend from about 30cm to 1.5m around the physical body. Sometimes people ask “what does it mean to not have an aura?” The fact is everyone has an aura, always. Even if the person is very sick or very depressed, the aura is there. It might be darker, lacking brightness, but it still exists.

Why do Some People See Auras?

Sometimes people with naturally clairvoyant abilities (in the sense of visual paraperceptions) can see auras. That does not mean the rest of us can’t. It just means that we need to develop an ability we may have never yet used. In fact, many of us might have already seen an aura but have perhaps dismissed it as an optical effect.

How can I Train Myself to See Auras?

There are some simple ways by which we can train ourselves how to view auras. Here is a simple step by step guide:

1 – Start small. Human auras are more complex, so it may be beneficial to start with something simple. Plants are an excellent start when it comes to improving the reading of auras. It’s important that the leaves on the plant you pick don’t move in the wind – so a houseplant can make an excellent training object.

2 – Adjust your vision. Sit down, relax and focus on a spot at the top of the plant. Let your eyes go slightly out of focus. If you find this difficult, try to imagine that you are focusing on an invisible leaf, a few centimetres above the top of the plant.

3 – Perceive. Try to extend your visual perception outward from the proximity of the plant so that you can begin to see the complete aura of the plant. Remember that plants don’t have the colourful aura (which stems from emotional and mental information) like humans do, so don’t get frustrated if you cannot see what does not exist!

4 – Mirror Exercise. Now that you can see the aura of a plant, it’s time to apply your technique to seeing your own aura. You will need a mirror where you can properly see your upper body. Place a light source on either side of the mirror (a free-standing reading lamp is ideal), but make sure to place it so that it does not create a direct reflexion. Sit down in a chair in front of the mirror. Make sure you sit in a comfortable position. Like in the exercise with the plant, adjust your vision to let your eyes go slightly out of focus by looking at an area just above one of your shoulders. Soon you should be able to see a thin white glow around your head – your ‘inner aura’ or ‘energosoma’ – your energetic body.

5 – Practice, practice, practice. The ‘inner aura’ is the easiest to see, but once you get comfortable seeing that, you should gradually move your focus further out to see the more subtle parts of the aura itself. The more you practice, the wider the visual perception will grow and the quicker you will become in tuning in to seeing auras.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
