Learn how to see your aura! As you’ll see, this practice is similar to meditation. You’ve heard many questions about auras, such as: ‘How can I see my aura?’ , ‘Are there any tips or tricks in seeing auras?’ , ‘What color is MY aura?’ , ‘How long does it take to see an aura?’ In this article, I’ll show you how to see your own aura!
Stand or sit several feet away from a mirror. Make sure you have a solid, light colored background behind you. Look at yourself in the mirror. Focus your attention at an outlining spot on your body. (I focus on the area between my neck and shoulders.) At first, you might see a thin white or transparent image around your body. This white or transparent image will appear as a nearly-clear form of energy, but you’ll definitely see it.
Remain focused. Eventually that white or transparent image will expand and will become a noticeable color (on me it’s a thin yellow outline of my body). At this point, you’re seeing something that your mind isn’t used to seeing, which triggers your brain to start thinking, and the aura disappears. It’ll come back quickly and will disappear just as quickly as soon as you think about what you’re seeing.
If you can remain focused long enough on your aura, you’ll find that it will expand in waves like to image to the left, perhaps coming in a little closer but gradually going out further away from your body and enveloping other colors. At this point, I see a purplish color, but once if I don’t maintain focus, then, I’ll lose the aura quickly when the aura expands..
The easiest way for me to see my aura is by using what I call the ‘Magic Eye Method’. This is something I came up with when I meditate into a mirror and applied this theory to seeing my aura. When you view a Magic Eye picture long enough, another 3d picture emerges from the original picture.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Magic Eye, here’s an example. :
(scroll to the bottom for the Magic Eye answer)
Here are the directions to see the 3D image inside of this picture:
(from the 3d magic eye website)
Hold the center of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face until the two squares above the image turn into three squares. If you see four squares, move the image farther away from your face until you see three squares. If you see one or two squares, start over!
When you clearly see three squares, hold the page still, and the hidden image will magically appear. Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes. The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes.
Eventually, you can train yourself to focus out of your non-dominant eye (in my case, my left eye) which triggers a different visual brain reaction in your ability to see three dimensional figures (and subsequently, your aura) within these pictures.
Use this same type of unconventional viewing when trying to see your aura. Stay focused, yet don’t ‘think’ about what you’re seeing. See how far you can extend your aura.
