Many people believe that they have to be an experienced psychic in order to see an aura and understand what exactly they mean. This doesn’t have to be the case. All it really takes is an open mind and a good understanding of how to see and read auras, which can be learned. Whether through a trusted professional or just out of sheer curiosity, if someone has an interest in learning about auras and how to see them, all they must do is take the time to learn what they are and how they can see them.
One of the most important aspects of being able to see auras is first understanding the rich history of aura reading and knowing what exactly auras are. There are a lot of cultural aspects to aura reading that often goes overlooked, but they are interesting tidbits and can actually help newcomers to see auras even better. There is also the scientific aspect of auras that must be understood in order for one to understand how to see them. After this is understood, the art of seeing and reading an aura is easier than ever.
The History of Reading Auras
Representations of auras in art and literature throughout history spans different cultures and time periods. Although regarded differently in various cultures, the root of the idea of what an aura is and what it represents has remained largely the same.
One culture that has always been rich with representations of auras is Egyptian culture, which depicted auras as a spiritual energy that could be read and decoded in order to understand a person better. There are many artistic representations of auras in Egyptian culture.
There are also cultures in which the spiritual energy that we now know as an aura is called by a different name. Highly spiritual religions such as Hindu have used the concept of the aura to represent those who have reached spiritual enlightenment, calling it the “thousand-petaled lotus of light.” In China, an aura is known as “Chi,” in India, “Prana.”
However, no matter the name, it is all the same thing: the aura. While in the past the aura was more of an aspect of spirituality than a quantifiable thing, advances in modern science have allowed us to see auras better than ever before.
The Science of Auras
Today, there are many different scientific methods with which to view and measure one’s aura. Auras are understood to be the electromagnetic field that is surrounding a living being, which many believe casts off a color that can be read and analyzed in order to better understand someone.
These electromagnetic radiations that surround living beings often say more about their state of mind and their presence than that person or thing can say about themselves. Auras are a reflection of our conscious activity and can be seen with the naked eye.
The aura is a field of energy that emits off one’s body about two to three feet. This span is often referred to as an “auric egg.” The auric egg says a lot about a person’s personality, mood, and even health level, and it is most commonly viewed and read in terms of the colors that it casts.
The most popular method of seeing an aura, perhaps, is Kirlian photography. These photographs use a special development method in order to expose one’s aura in the picture, and they are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways by which to see and analyze one’s aura. Kirlian photographs are developed on a plate through which high-frequency electric currents are passed, exposing one’s aura in the photo development process.
But if one finds themselves without the means and technology to read an aura, that does not mean that they are without hope. There are many ways to see an aura with the naked eye, one just has to learn what they are.
How to See an Aura
Using technology to see an aura may be an easy route, but most people have neither the access to the necessary technology nor the funds to view their aura and the auras of those around them. This does not mean that they have to go their whole lives never knowing what their aura looks like and says about them; it simply means that they have to work a little bit harder and tap into their third eye a little bit more.
It is totally possible to see an aura without the aid of technology, and it’s really not even that difficult with a little practice. Here are some basic aspects and tricks that can make auras easier to see:
- Using a different point of view
This all may seem confusing at first, but with a little explanation, it does not have to be overwhelming or even difficult to grasp.
Seeing The Aura Color
Color is one of the most major aspects of an aura. It is the part of an aura that is the easiest to see as well as to read. Taking note of the presence – or absence – of color in someone’s aura is the best way to hone one’s ability to see and read auras.
The best news about reading and understanding the colors of someone or something’s aura is that it’s actually relatively easy to practice. All you will need is:
- A neutrally lit and colored room
- Brightly colored construction paper
If you take a piece of the construction paper and tape it to the far wall of the room, then you can practice finding the aura colors and understanding what the color means. A large part of this is following your response to how the color makes you feel. When you are looking at the paper, take note of the pale color that is being cast off it – this is an aura.
Seeing The Energy
Sensing an aura can be a great step towards seeing an aura. What this means is that when one is in the presence of another, they can practice by feeling the energy that the person gives off and sense what their aura is like.
The way that one feels around someone else says a lot about the psychic energy that the other person is giving off. In order to feel someone’s energy in an unbiased way, one must relax, breathe deeply, and trust one’s instincts regarding how the other person makes them feel.
This ability to sense someone’s aura also comes in handy for avoiding people who will have a negative impact on one’s life.
Try a Different Point of View
If the color practice does not work, and there is still difficulty sensing the energy of those around oneself, try seeing things from a different point of view – literally. Using one’s peripheral vision, or even squinting, can often give a clearer vision of an aura.
Now You’re Ready to Read Auras
Understanding and practicing how to see auras can be an invaluable tool in one’s life. Using the energy of those that one surrounds oneself with as a guide to whether they are having a positive or negative impact on one’s life is a great way to keep positive, happy, and on the track towards enlightenment.
