Keep practicing Kim….it may take several times to see colors. Also try the mirror method with yourself. I don’t have much luck with my hands but I do with the head shots.
Everyone is different. But if you don’t practice, you don’t progress, just like anything else.
Try the other method a few more times too.
We must have a lot of wiggly people in our church. I usually sit upstairs in the choir balcony, so I get to look through bars….not conducive to auras when a bar cuts the pastor’s face in half. But it is fun finding out what color backgrounds you can work with.
FDJune 17, 2002 at 3:01 pm #77988
Yes, Fairie it would be difficult through bars! The background in our little mission is cream color, so it’s not distracting when trying to meditate on someone’s auric color. I think being Catholic has aided me somewhat. There are many times during Mass where people are on the kneelers, and not moving around.
Try this in church:
Look toward the ceiling, [not at it, toward it]
Keep the tops of peoples heads in the lower part of your sight.
kind of looking past their heads, not concentrating on the head at all. I find the aura will come through [for me] when my eyes ‘get bored’ with looking at the upper part of the wall.
Kim, I don’t always see color either so don’t give up! I started looking for auras about two years ago, so I’ve been at it awhile.June 17, 2002 at 3:26 pm #77989GailParticipant
Tammy, I too am Catholic and when we first moved into our newly built church in the 70’s, it was decided not to have kneelers. (What a blessing) We had been meeting in a school auditorium so long without kneelers that we decided to not have them. We now all stand where we would have kneeled and no one complained.:D The colors are 70’s earth tones and it does make it difficult to see auras. The ceiling is low and has light fixtures in it. I can still see the clear envelope around people. I am also a one track mind person and concentrating on seeing auras makes everthing else going on fade away.:)

Hi Gail :wave:
I’m glad you don’t have to kneel during Mass. I know it can be very painful for some people [Scott has bad knees].
Like George Carlin once said: “Appreciate your knees; you’ll miss them when they’re gone.” That always cracked me up!

I don’t know if this belongs here or not, but I just learned how to see auras last week in my shaman dowsing class. I wrote about it on the Spirit Discovery boards here – seeing auras with your mind’s eye
The weird part is when we did this in class I was getting the same colors as those that could see auras with their vision eyes. I can sense colors better than I see them, but then again my eyes are terrible and I need wicked strong glasses too. I have enough trouble seeing stuff with my glasses on let alone picking out minute color fluctuations, and I see black spots all the time yet doctor says I have no problems besides nearsighted. (This week I found what the black spots were, now *that* is another story that definitely doesn’t belong here).June 18, 2002 at 12:22 am #77993
Let’s find out at what stage everyone is at:
1–can’t find any aura
2-can see the etheric, the one closest to the body
3-can see a portion of astral aura
4-can see the astral, the one that can extend 2 to 3 feet from body
5-can see the whole body envelope of the etheric aura
6- can see the whole body of astral aura
7-can see no colors
8-can see pastels
9-can see bright or brilliant colors
10-can see black spots in the outer shell
11-have memorized all the colors and know what they mean
12-would like to tell me to shuddup.
I’m at a 3 and an 8. Can only see my own bright blue-green, squeeky #9. And I know a few colors.

Success! :jumper: I finally saw colors on my right hand. It looked like light blue or aqua flames coming out of the ends of my fingers. I was expecting to see the same color as I see on the right side of my head – violet, but this was a very different color. As soon as I saw it for the first time I immediately looked right at it to confirm what I saw and, of course, it disappeared. But I was able to get it back several times by looking past my hand, using my peripheral vision and telling myself I CAN SEE VIVID COLORS. I just didn’t expect what I saw, which makes me believe it’s for real. Gee, I wish one of you were here to practice with. It would be great to verify colors. For the record, I had just done a deep meditation first. And the lighting was just right – late afternoon indirect light against a white wall.
As for rating where I am, I’d have to say #3 and #8. Thanks F.D. for inspiring me to practice!

I’m so glad you’ve had such great success. Not to burst your bubble, but there is much out there for you to see.
Isn’t it really exciting when you can see those wonderful colors? And I look directly at it everytime and it goes away. I have to work much harder at staying unfocused.
I am now reading a book called, “What Your Aura Tells Me”, by Ray Stanford. He does a really nice job of storytelling the facts.
Keep up the good work!!!June 18, 2002 at 1:05 am #77998ScubaCatParticipant
Oh, by no means do I think I’m finished! I’m just getting started.
I’m going to go practice being “unfocused” :D
ScubaCat :cat:June 18, 2002 at 3:38 am #78001
#2 and partly #3. For #3, I can’t always see a color. Most of the time its just white light that I see around the etheric aura. [Like the outer fridges are white.] For one person I seem to see a white dot near the top of the head, a little off to the right. I’ve no clue what it is.
I don’t see black dots, I don’t see layers of color [except the white fridge mentioned above].
I know what the basic colors mean because I looked them up for someone else on Spirit Discovery. Someone had to tell me what Silver, gray and black meant, but I know those ones now.
I seem to see some colors easier than others. #8 would seem to apply here: Pink, blue, blue-green and pale yellow. I’ve never seen red, black, gold, gray, or orange.
I definately need more practice, and / or a different method.June 18, 2002 at 2:50 pm #78004
Which method are you using Tam? Maybe we can find another one. There is another one, but I don’t think I’d be allowed to post it, because it’s kind of kinky, and you need a partner. Haven’t even tried it on Don yet.
Everyone is very different. Some people see the auras as bands of colors, or rays of light. I guess really anything is up for grabs as long as it’s an aura. You can see blobs or orbs, etc., which seems to indicate spirit guides, guardian angels, or other things.
Last night I was unfocusing and the blue green wasn’t just around my head and shoulders, it was on my face too. That was different, and no way could I stay unfocused after that.
Here’s another thing we can try. FEELNG auras.
Don’t touch your naked skin, but place your hand about 2 inches above some part of your body. Maybe closing your eyes would help. Gradually raise your hand away from your body and then slowly lower it again and see if you feel anything. (Heat, cold, pressure, tingling, congestion) I can’t remember any other descriptive words just now. Then, ask what color it is. The color that pops into your head should be it. Again, don’t expect the ultimate the first few times. Your senses have to adapt to your new requirements. Not touching versus touching. I’m a very touchy huggy person. I wonder how I will adapt.
So, now we’re working on SEEING and TOUCHING our auras. As we progress, we can slowly add more little features to this aura study.June 18, 2002 at 4:32 pm #78007
The method I’m using, is similar to what you describe Fairie. I don’t use a white background though, just a bland neutral color. The gray interior of my van is superb for this.
I stare at a point past the subject of study, keeping it in my peripheral vision or to the lower part of my sight. I breathe in and out, like on the tapes. If the color doesn’t come right away, I close my eyes and envision the white light beaming down on me. When I feel the warmth and comfort wrap around me, I try again. Most of the time I can pick up on it right away.
With the priest at the front of the church, I focus above him toward the top of the wall. I can see his aura the fastest. He is also the one whom I see the little ball of light by his head. It had not occurred to me that this could be his guardian angel or his spirit guide, but makes perfect sense.
Thanks for opening up this topic FD, I am enjoying it :)
TammyJune 18, 2002 at 4:43 pm #78008
Try this in the mirror. Instead of looking past your shoulder, look smack at the middle of your forehead. I’ve tried this, and I get a more rounded aura. Hey, I made it go up about 12 inches today.
I’ll look around for some more goodies.
FD:jumper:June 18, 2002 at 5:16 pm #78011JudeParticipant
Does the coloring of the clothing of the subject have any effect on what you see?June 18, 2002 at 5:30 pm #78012
Clothing has some effect, but not much. Sometimes aura colors clash with your winter, spring, summer, fall colors. But that’s okay. The ideal way to see auras is in the buff, but you very seldom see people walkin around that way. So, ya just gotta learn to do it the clothes on.
I am continually amazed at the variety of ways people interpret auras. I just finished Ray Stanford’s book. It’s not very big and only took 1/2 of an evening. Very interesting person. His is combined with ESP and heaven knows what else. He could do some pretty amazing things. I laughed a lot while I read the book too.
