Aura Viewing Strategies
working with your own bodies energies can be very transformative. This can help you to discover exciting new dimensions to your existence.
- Start by sensing. A good way to begin seeing auras is to practice sensing them. That means paying attention to how you feel in someone’s presence. Take a deep breath, exhale and then focus on the physical sensations in your body and your gut reaction.
Before we can fully develop our ability to see auras, we must first become aware of how energy feels in our body. Next time you are with a friend, pay attention to how you feel in their presence. Do they invite you in to feel loved and cherished or rather drain you of your own energy? Align yourself with your breath and ask for an honest sensation of how they feel to you. It is this visceral, physical reaction which if we begin to honor will assist us best in navigating the many people with whom we come in contact.
AURAS ARE EASIER TO SEE FROM THE PERIPHERY
Goofy but true, we are rarely able to see an aura. As we are biological machines processing and filtering out so much information, so too is our direct vision affected by the lightning speed editing of our brains. To begin seeing the aura, gaze at one spot for 30-60 seconds and allow your gaze to soften. Notice those objects just outside of your direct sight to further develop your periphery vision. While mastering your gaze, there is no need to strain or stress for that will only trigger anxiety in the brain. Breathe normally while practicing this soft-focus vision.
COLOR IS KING
As we explored, it is the presence of color that will best hone your ability to read auras. To expand your sight, go into a neutral colored room and play with brightly colored objects. I find this best taped to the wall at a distance so I can practice my periphery best. Close your eyes and breathe asking the colors to show themselves to you. Gaze at the color (poster board or a solid color wrapped object are good) while breathing deeply. Again allow your gaze to soften almost as if you are looking through it.
Take note of the field outside of the colored object. You’ll begin to notice a pale, shimmer of color coming off of it. This is the magic of reading the aura. As you gain confidence with single colors, gradually add in multi-colored objects to expand your psychic vision.
Once you’ve honed your skills with others you may be up for trying to read your own aura! Note that this may be a bit more challenging but is an excellent practice at strengthening your intuitive abilities. Sit in a quiet meditative space and clear your mind. Set an intention that you would like access to “see” your own aura.
Gently rub your hands together, this activates energy between the two hands and turns on the Aka. The stickiness (or sense of being magnetized to one another) you may feel is known as Aka — the ethereal substance of life– to the ancient Egyptians and is the invisible thread that creates matter.
Focus your attention between the palms and see if you can sense a color to these threads of energy. It may feel like mist or fog even but your physical sense of color will confirm and bolster your psychic vision.
