Energy Technique Toolbox: Tip 7


This exercise is designed to help you see Auras. It is really a very simple task, that takes less than 1 minute to see in the right conditions. Once you are able to do this, it then requires regular practice to become competent at seeing the auric field, even in a less than ideal environment.

Choosing good conditions in which to practice is important- you are not only able to see the Aura better, but it also helps you to gain confidence about what you see.

Have a person sit in a chair with their back to a clear white wall, that is softly illuminated. A color background will change Aura colors, so you need additional knowledge about combining colors. Some combinations of background and Aura colors may cause misinterpretation. You can play around with adjusting the light. Some prefer a dimmer light in the room, others find it more helpful to have a brighter light. Experience it a variety of ways to determine what works best for you.

Then stand back or sit in a chair facing the person whose aura you are looking at, be at least a few feet away. Then focus your eyes about 12 - 18 inches above the head of the individual. Maintain what I call a fuzzy-focus state with your eyes. It is how my eyes are usually when I am daydreaming. When you can look in this manner, suddenly the aura appears. It is then natural for your brain to signal to you "Oh Boy, you have just seen an Aura", but as soon as you divert full attention and focus to that spot, you lose what you saw and you have to start over again.

It is really not that difficult... in summary it is learning to direct the ego self to go to the back of the room so the process can work. Once you know you have the ability to see the auric field, then it is quite simply PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE! if you want to develop this skill.

To see your own Aura, so the same thing but look into a mirror. This can be a bit more challenging to start with, but as with anything new your are learning, the more you practice, the easier it gets.

Initially when you see the Auric field, it may appear to you as a hazy, fog-like state. Think about driving at night and you look up at the street light, that haziness you see surrounding the light is similar to what you will see as an aura. Over time you will be able to see colors, if you are unable to see them when you first start. My feeling is the more you can relax into the process, the more you will be able to observe.

Practicing this new technique can be fun. You don't necessarily need to set aside x amount of time each day in your newly created AURA Practicing Space, but rather--play with it, have fun. If you are standing in line at the store, rather than getting annoyed, practice Aura viewing. Waiting in an office for your number to be called? Instead of reading a magazine--practice Aura viewing. As you see individuals in various states of emotion, if you can be a detached observer--practice Aura viewing. The opportunities are endless! Have fun learning. PS: Let me know if you give this a try and how you make out!
