The Human Aura

My Path To Reading The Human Aura

I first became interested in learning to see and read the human aura after completing my path to reading the human auramy Reiki I training with John Harvey Gray.  One day, while giving a Reiki treatment to a woman, I suddenly saw a bright emerald light glowing around her body.  The light continued to glow for the rest of the session.  It was such a powerful experience for me, that immediately afterwards, I called John and told him about it.  John listened attentively, and said that I must have seen that woman’s aura.  What I had seen visually was the same as the general physical vitality that I had felt kinesthetically during the scanning process prior to starting the client’s Reiki session.

What I had seen, and that which I had felt, are one and the same.  John said that the aura is are actually perceived by the mind; the perceptions come in through the senses, either visually, kinesthetically, or both.  What’s more, John continued, auras are also perceived and interpreted spiritually by the mind with the help of the Third Eye chakra.

Over the next several days, memories from my childhood began to emerge.  I remembered having the ability to see auras as a little girl.  As a child growing up in Cuba, my favorite time of day was just before dusk.  I loved being in the garden at dusk.  As the light of day dimmed, I could see multi-colored lights around the tropical flowers, plants, trees … even animals. It was a magical time for me.  Of course, at that age, I did not know that what I was seeing in the garden were the auras of living things.  Later, after coming to the United States, I got busy at once learning about my new country and forgot about my childhood abilities.  Now, through Reiki, I had found them again.  What a joyful feeling!  I was suddenly hungry to read anything written about auras.  I started practicing viewing them every chance I could.  Soon, I had regained my previous skills.

Aura Research

Australia’s leading authority on the human aura, author Judith Collins, explains that everyone is born with the ability to see auras, and infants and toddlers can see them easily.  Collins claims that although seeing auras is a form of psychic ability everyone is born with, most people repress this ability as they grow older.  She believes that the growth and development of children’s psychic abilities become stunted when adults fail to give children the needed encouragement and support in their intuitive pursuits.
The Human AtmosphereEven when the mind represses the ability to perceive auras, most people are able to regain it.

Learning to see and read the human aura is a learnable skill.  Both Collins, and Englishman Walter Kilner, who practiced medicine in the early 1900s, have taught hundreds of people to see auras.  Dolores Krieger, co-founder of Therapeutic Touch, and Reiki Master, John Harvey Gray, have taught thousands of people to perceive auras kinesthetically.  In  2004, I created a one-day course called “Learn to See Auras” and began to hold aura classes at the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing.  The course includes research from my Parapsychology Ph.D. thesis.

Keep in mind that spiritual development enhances a person’s ability to perceive the human aura by allowing them to have a greater awareness of its subtleties.  The quality of aura interpretation is relative to the observer’s degree of spiritual awareness.  The development of the Brow chakra, also known as the Third Eye chakra, is a crucial part of this process.

Walter KilnerMany aura readers do not engage in advanced spiritual practices, nor are they involved in metaphysics or the occult.  For instance, Kilner, who taught himself and others to see auras, had no special psychic abilities or metaphysical training, yet he accurately diagnosed hundreds of patients based on aura readings alone.  At first, he worked with color filters to enhance the eye’s ability to see auras.  Later, he found using the filters to be no longer necessary.  Kilner meticulously documented cases of dozens of patients whose signs of health problems were indicated in their auras.  Kilner wrote two books on the subject of perception of auras:  The Human Atmosphere in 1911, and The Human Aura in 1920.  Details contained in both of the books have made a significant contribution to understanding how the human eye is able to detect auras.

The physiology of the human eye plays an important role in the viewing of auras.  Some of today’s most effective aura teachers have used this knowledge to teach students to see auras. Once you know what to look for auras are very easy to see.

unknownHow The Human Aura Appears

The human aura appears as fluctuations of light around an individual.  In other words, light refracts or bends as it moves from the air and through the body’s energy field, or aura, causing white light to break into its individual components and creating the rainbow effect.  This is what makes the human aura visible under certain conditions.  The fluctuations caused by the bending of light cannot be distinguished by using regular vision alone.  Instead, they can only be observed by utilizing both regular and peripheral vision simultaneously, while the person being observed is in an environment suitable for observation.

Most people can learn to see the human aura by following these four steps:

  1. Understanding how the human eye sees color and light.
  2. Understanding what makes the aura visible.
  3. Setting up exercises where all the criteria needed for observing auras exist.
  4. Practicing techniques to help relax the vision while observing the aura.

woman-man-silhouette-aura-chakras-energy-17373784The aura is not always visible.  People subconsciously retract their auras when they feel inhibited, or are unreceptive, or afraid.  (I always know which of the students are paying attention in class by looking at their auras.)  The aura is most visible when the person being observed is at ease and emotionally open.

In addition, the aura is rarely seen as an envelope surrounding the entire body of the person or other living thing being observed.  Most of the time, the aura presents itself in small sections that both appear and disappear in a rhythm of their own.  The fact that the aura often appears in several sections and not in one piece, contradicts popular belief and often confuses novice aura viewers.
Reading auras visually is easy and learning to read  auras through the sense of touch is even easier to learn.  Energy healers such as Dolores Krieger and John Harvey Gray have taught thousands of students to perceive auras through the sense of touch.

Learning to perceive auras through the sense of touch involves feeling the aura with the hands and fingertips.  This is easy to learn because the hands and fingertips, rich in sensory nerves, are capable of transmitting an abundance of information about the aura to the brain.

Visual and kinesthetic aura reading methods are incomplete on their own.  Visual methods are fascinating, but due to the limitations of human sight, do not represent the entire aura.  Human eyes can only see the visible light portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, i.e., from red, at 770 nm to blue at 380 nm.

The aura contains a much wider range of frequencies, from infrared 2000 nm to near ultraviolet 300 nm.  Tactile methods are more thorough, but lack the excitement provided by the visual method. To truly see and read auras, one must combine both and ultimately learn to develop his or her own spiritual sight.  Once a person develops their spiritual sight, he or she is able to observe and interpret auras under any situation or condition.

Reading The Human Aura

human aura and chakra systemHave you ever wished that you could learn to see and read the human aura?  You can! Auras are real and anyone can easily learn to read them. Knowledge about the human aura is ancient. For thousands of years, clairvoyants and psychics have described the presence of auras. Learning to see and read auras is a natural ability, not one that requires years of intensive spiritual study to develop.  Even though some believe that the ability to perceive auras is a spiritual gift granted only to a few lucky individuals, thousands of ordinary people have learned to read auras after having only one short lesson.

Australia’s leading authority on the human aura, author Judith Collins, explains that everyone is born with the ability to see auras. Infants and toddlers can see them easily.  Collins claims that although seeing auras is a form of psychic ability everyone is born with, most people repress this ability as they grow older.  She believes that the growth and development of children’s psychic abilities becomes stunted when adults fail to give children the needed encouragement and support in their intuitive pursuits.

Even when the mind represses the ability to perceive auras, most people are able to regain this ability easily. Many aura readers do not engage in advanced spiritual practices, nor are they involved in metaphysics or the occult. The physiology of the human eye plays an important role in the viewing of auras as well as learning how to observe with a relaxed gaze, and understanding what to look for while you view the aura.  Some of today’s most effective aura teachers have used this knowledge to teach thousands of students to read auras.

What is the human aura?

The human aura is a container for bio-energy. The body’s energy or Qi, prana, acoustic fields, kirlian aura imageelectromagnetic fields, and other fields, which we do not yet understand are all present in the human aura. These fields form a seven layer energetic mold, or mirror image of the person. The first layer corresponds to the physical body. The second layer corresponds to emotions and contains the colors. The third layer corresponds to the mind and contains thought. The first 3 layers of the aura are visible to the human eye and are palpable to the touch. Layers 4 through 7 are the spiritual layers that we share will all of humanity. These higher layers need to be observed in an eyes-closed meditative state. Each layer of the aura vibrates at a higher octave than the one below it. Chakras are created by the spin of auric layers. Each chakra has its own corresponding auric layer.

All things present in the physical body are also present in the aura in an energetic form. All changes that take place in the physical body happen first energetically in the aura. This is the Law of Manifestation. By understanding this law, and learning to read auras, we can be more effective Reiki healers.

Here’s a quick and easy exercise to get you started on your path to reading the human aura:

  1. Lie down in bed and close your eyes. Then give your eyes Reiki for a few minutes in order to relax them. (Before you start this exercise, turn on a soft white light that is not too bright. Make sure the room is softly lit … preferably, a little on the dim side. It also helps if the color of the ceiling in the room is white because the color white reflects back all colors. This is important in reading auras.)
  2. Gently open your eyes. Raise your hands as far as you can above your face with the palm side of the hands facing you.
  3. Now, gently gaze at the ceiling using your peripheral vision–your side vision.  Look a few inches away from your fingers. (Never look directly at the fingers.) Do not blink your eyes. The ceiling will act as the background against which the aura around your fingers will reflect. Note: The aura must always reflect against a surface in order for it to be visible.
  4. After a few minutes you will start noticing a ‘double image’ around your fingers. This ‘double image’ is really the first layer of the aura. It is called the ‘etheric double.’ Its color is either clear or milky white. If you continue with the exercise for another few minutes, you will start seeing the second layer of the aura. The second layer is called the ‘astral or emotional layer’ and is where the colors reside. The second layer will likely appear as a very delicate blue or green transparent haze around your fingers. The reason I say ‘blue or green’ is because blue and green are some of the most common colors present in the aura; however, other colors could also be observed. Congratulations! You just read the aura around your hands and fingers!

Practice this exercise every day and soon you will begin to see airs humans, animals and plants. If you are interested in learning to read auras come to to one of our Learn To See Auras workshops where you’ll learn much more about how to read auras and chakras, visually and kinesthetically, including how to read each of the layers of the aura, and how to keep your aura and chakras healthy, balanced and safe.

 

 

 

Learning To See Auras – Debunking Myth #3

Myth #3: Only psychics and spiritually gifted persons can see auras. Absolutely not true. Everyone is The Human Auraborn with the ability to see auras. Even the blind.  Seeing auras is a natural human ability that has been around ever since we became human. Remember, the eye is just one our sensory organs. We really “see” with our minds.

“The human mind is capable of processing 400 billion bits of information per second BUT is ONLY aware of 2000 of those.” Dr. Joseph Dispenza D.C.

The bits of information that the mind selects to bring up to awareness is based on what we already know and accept as “reality.” Viewing auras is not a practice generally accepted and recognized in Western society. Most children are not supported and encouraged to see auras, just the opposite. Even today, many parents and teachers discourage children who appear to have special psychic abilities from developing those gifts.

Children want to be loved and accepted by their families and peers. This often means fitting the mold that society has designed for them.  In the process, many children subconsciously turn off certain abilities that would make them different from others; however, these abilities, including the ability to see auras are never lost and can be re-awakened!

As the child or adult begins to understand what the aura is and how to view it, their knowledge and awareness of reality expands and the mind is able to bring more information to the surface including the awareness of the beautiful glowing lights that make up the aura.

Learning To See Auras – Debunking Myth #2

The first step in learning to see auras is separating fact from myth so let’s debunk the second most common myth.The Human Aura

Myth #2: The aura always appears in its entirety, covering the whole body. This belief creates one of the most common obstacles people encounter when they try to view the aura and the reason for why many fail to recognize it.

The notion that auras appear in their entirety as an egg shaped sphere of glowing colors that surround the body of humans, animals and plants has been incorrectly described and popularized in books and oral traditions for hundreds years. That is what people expect the aura to look like and why they fail to recognize the “real aura” when it appears.

In most instances, the real aura consists of very delicate layers of colored lights that come and go over various parts of the body, one section at a time, and seem to appear and disappear, pulsing several times per minute, turning on and off. The “turning on and off” effect is caused by the aura’s own intrinsic rhythm. It is not tied to the heart beat, respiration rate or any other physical motility.
