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 them.

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 heads?"

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 light.

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 direction.)

- 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, centered

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.
