Aura is the field of energy field that emanates from the surface of a person or object. This emanation is seen as an outline of cascading color which includes the etheric body, chakras and other energy fields of the astral body. The aura  can  extend  as little as a few inches or as much as 100 feet.  This depends on the spiritual evolution, mood and vitality of the individual.

 It is often seen as a mix of color frequencies. each color or mix of colors reflects the nature and characteristics of the individual. The aura  in which we dwell, or that surrounds us, is energy and surrounds us just as does the magnetic energy field that surrounds the Earth.  
The aura does not remain the same size, color or shape, but is in a constant state of flux, changing form, volume and colors to reflect altered moods and emotional/mental reactions.  The aura has one or two basic colors, one's own identity, but there are many other color areas about the aura that change with one's thoughts and moods.  In the aura we will find the chakras, the kundalini and many other parts analagous to parts in the physical body.

Various traditions describe as many as nine layers to the aura.  The various layers of tne
aura areseparate and distinct yet connected to all the remaining layers. The nature of the layers is a matter of doctrine and perception.    Auras may be viewed by the naked eye, though some believe this ability weakens with age. Focused training may improve one's ability to see auras.



How to see the aura

To practice seeing auras - have the subject stand in front of a white background and look to the side of their body - either side is fine.

Daylight is often the best light as the sun's rays are full spectrum.

If you watch the person for a minute, you will see their electromagnetic energies as sort of wavy lines of energies. This looks a lot like the energy you see when you are watching an airplane taking off in a movie.

Please do not strain you eyes. Relax. You might want to let your eyes go a little out of focus while you are looking for an aura.

You may only see the aura for a few seconds, then it will disappear.  After you see that energy, you may also see or sense a color frequency, maybe two or three colors, in the aura. After several minutes you should be able to see some sort of energy field around the person, even if you cannot determine the color.

Remember that auras change all the time according to the person's mood and environment. As with all psychic tools, learning to read auras seems easy for some people while others need lost of practice.
