There is nothing “paranormal” in the Universe, except our limited understanding of Nature. What we think we “know” on Earth now is just a tiny drop in the Ocean of Knowledge. In the distant past, people admired things they could not explain and called them “miracles”. Long ago, people were able to see Auras.
Advanced spiritual people such as Buddha, Christ and their immediate students were painted with golden haloes around their heads because some artists could actually see Auras. In Australia remote West Kimberleys you can find prehistoric cave paintings (bottom left), many thousands of years old, depicting people with golden haloes. (photo courtesy G.L.Walsh) Nature gave us ALL we need to see Auras. All that is required is the knowledge of how to use your senses together with your conscious effort. If you decide not to try, you will NEVER see the Aura. On the other hand, when you SEE something for yourself, no longer will you need to rely on believing someone. You will KNOW. And you can use your knowledge to learn more.
Many great people in the past complained that “we have eyes and we do not see”. Further in this document, you will discover what they meant.
ANYONE can see auras to some degree. Rather than create an aura of mystery around my newly acquired skill, my approach is to show everyone what their eyes are capable of. When nearly everyone (including children) sees a similar thing, I consider this a part of our Nature and I say that it deserves our attention.
What is the Aura?
Everything in the Universe seems to be just a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. Hence, we may define the Aura as an electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external excitation (such as an ambient light for example). This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can train ourselves to see the Aura vibration.
The most important property of the Aura seems to be the fact that it contains INFORMATION about the object.
Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants …) changes with time, sometimes very quickly. The aura around the non-living object (stones, crystals, water…) is essentially fixed but can be changed by our conscious intent. The above facts have been observed by scientists in Russia, who have been using the Kirlian effect to study Auras for the last 50 years.
The Aura around humans is partly composed of EM (electromagnetic) radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared (IR) to UV light. The low-frequency microwave and infrared part of the spectrum (body heat) seem to be related to the low levels of the functioning of our body (DNA structure, metabolism, circulation etc.) whereas high frequency (UV part) is more related to our conscious activity such as thinking, creativity, intentions, sense of humour and emotions. Russian scientists, who seem to be about 3 decades ahead of everyone else in Aura research, make experiments suggesting that our DNA can be altered, by influencing its microwave Aura. The high-frequency UV part is very important and most interesting but largely unexplored. And this part can be seen with naked eyes.
Why do we need to see auras?
The colours and intensity of the aura, especially around and above the head have VERY special meanings. Watching someone’s aura you can actually see the other person’s thoughts before you hear them expressed verbally. If they do not agree with what this person is saying, you effectively see a lie every time. No one can lie in front of you undetected. We cannot fake the Aura. It shows our True Nature and intentions for everyone to see.
Also, the aura is our spiritual signature. When you see a person with a bright, clean aura, you can be SURE that such person is good and spiritually advanced, even if he/she is modest and not aware of it. When you see a person with a grey or dark aura, you may be almost SURE, that such person has unclear intentions, regardless of how impressive, eloquent, educated, “good looking” or “well dressed” he/she seems to appear.
It is ESPECIALLY important to check the aura of any religious leader, “spiritual teacher”, “master” or a “guru”. Such a person should have a clearly defined yellow-golden halo around the head. If he/she does not have it, you are MUCH better on your own.
Joining a sect or a religion that is led by incompetent people without good Auras is very dangerous for your consciousness. Where is the danger? When the time comes to really use the information stored in your consciousness from this lifetime, there may be almost nothing useful there, if you focus your life on following rituals and the flock of other people. In such a case, it is necessary to re-learn everything from the beginning. The most sect, religion and political leaders have only two things in mind: money and power to control people. And you can SEE it in their Aura for yourself. Imagine changes on Earth if many people can see the Auras of their leaders and start choosing them on the basis of their Auras.
By reading Aura it seems possible to diagnose malfunctions in the body (diseases) long before physical symptoms become evident. By consciously controlling your Aura you can actually heal yourself.
However, healing of the physical body is nothing in comparison to what seeing and reading auras can do for our consciousness, spiritual development and our awareness of Nature.
Everyone has an Aura. But most people on Earth have VERY WEAK and dull Auras. This seems to be a direct consequence of their lifelong materialistic attitude negating and suppressing the development of consciousness, cultivating fear, envy, jealousy and other similar emotions. Such attitude suppresses their True Nature, and their Auras seem to become suppressed too.
When you learn to see Auras, be prepared for a REALLY HARD question: “Can you tell me what my Aura is ?” and the situation when you don’t see any Aura or you see something you don’t want to talk about. One of the best answers I found is “why don’t you learn to see it for yourself ? “. And this is one of the main reasons why I teach people to see auras.
When people realize that their Aura is on display and many people are able to see it, they will watch what they think. And they will try to see and improve their own Aura. In the process they will become better and wiser, being able to recognize the intentions of other people. Surely, the entire world will become much better if all people can see and read Auras.
Children and the Aura:
Very young children (up to 5 years of age) see auras naturally. Infants frequently look ABOVE a person in front of them. When they don’t like the colour of the aura above the head, or if this colour is much different from their parent’s aura, they cry, no matter how much smiling the person does.
Children have much cleaner and stronger auras than most adults, who are usually completely enslaved by the materialistic world and suppress their Nature by following superficial examples. When I taught my 12-year-old son to see his own Aura, he told me that when he was little he was able to see Auras most of the time. But no one paid any attention, so he thought that it was not important and maybe there was something wrong with his eyesight. This is a typical scenario. In my opinion, children should learn to see and read Auras in primary school, so they never lose this natural ability.
How to see and READ the AURA: Part 2
With our eyes, we can sense (perceive) a very narrow range of vibration frequencies of ElectroMagnetic (EM) vibration corresponding to wavelengths from 0.3 to 0.7 micrometres – from purple to red. A mix of the vibration frequencies in the above range we perceive with our eyes as colour. We can measure this mix precisely by recording a spectrum of light, but only using special instruments, called spectrophotometers.
Colours perceived by our eyes are only our partial perception of MUCH more complex reality: complex vibration of light (and other vibrations as well). To explain the above statement, we would need to define the spectrum and explain how we perceive colour with our eyes.
How to see Aura: developing auric sight
In an effort to see the Aura we need to:
- Increase the sensitivity of our eyes AND
- Extend the range of perceived vibration beyond the visible light.
It seems that we can accomplish the above by:
- Using and training our peripheral vision
- Increasing exposure
- Enhance visual sensation processing in the brain – enhance the communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain
Why should we use our peripheral vision? Our retina (the focal plane of the eye containing photosensitive cells) is less damaged there than in the central part. The central part of the retina is constantly in use, and over the years suffers accumulated damage from excessive and/or artificial illumination (TV, computers, artificial light etc…). Also, we have trained the central vision to be used in certain ways over the years.
Young children see auras much easier because their central vision is not yet damaged. Once they go to school they are told to use their vision in a certain way, and gradually they lose their natural auric sight.
When we want to do a photo of a dark scene, we need to increase the time of exposure of the film. We can accomplish this for our eyes by concentrating exactly on ONE spot for a while (30-60 seconds).
When our eyes are moving, or a scene moves in front of our eyes, images are averaged by our eye. (25 TV frames per second seems a fluent motion). When we concentrate on one spot, we increase our sensitivity because we average the incoming light, cumulating its effect.
Our photosensitive cells (Red Green and Blue) operate as vibration sensors, much like 3 radio receivers tuned to 3 “colours” RGB. When you need to achieve a large vibration of, say, a swing – you can accomplish it using a very weak excitation force, but persist with it. Concentrating with your eyes on one spot you achieve a very similar effect: with a very small stimulation you can gradually swing your photo sensitive cells into large vibration, and this results in a visual sensation perceived by the brain.
Concentration exercise 1
Place the picture in Fig 1 about 1.5 m in front of you. Look exactly at the black spot for 30 seconds or so and observe coloured dots with your peripheral vision. Resist the temptation to look anywhere else but the black spot.
Fig 1. Image for concentration exercise
Note that coloured areas seem to be surrounded by the “Aura” of a different colour. When peripheral sensors are stimulated for some time, we have colour sensations, much different than when we use central vision. The longer you concentrate, the brighter is the “Aura” around coloured areas, because your sensitivity increases. Yesterday you could look at this picture for hours and never see anything. Concentration at ONE spot for long enough is the key. Rather than the true Aura, this exercise demonstrates the principle of how to look to see human Auras by making you aware of certain specific capabilities of your eyesight and your perception.
Concentration exercise 2
This exercise aims to stimulate the communication between both hemispheres of the brain, thereby increasing the “processing power” needed to see Auras. Place the picture in Fig 2 about 1 meter in front of you. Stretch your hand forward so that one of your fingers in between and underneath circles.
Change focus on the tip of your finger and overlook the circles. You should see 4 circles. Then aim to overlap the middle two to see ONE CIRCLE WITH A WHITE CROSS on top of your finger, in the middle between the two. Seeing the cross is evidence, that the left hemisphere of the brain (connected to the right eye) is communicating with the right hemisphere (connected to the left eye).
This exercise turns out to be extremely beneficial: 5 minutes of it seems to double the size of the electro-photonic aura as recorded by electrography.
The cross will initially float and seem unstable. Experiment with the distance from your finger to your eyes to achieve a perfect cross. You gain a significant benefit after 3-5 minutes of maintaining a perfectly balanced cross, preferably without blinking, but a magic duration seems to be 45 minutes of concentration at the time, which is said to make a REAL difference to your mental and auric abilities.
In my experience, it is best to start with a minute or two and gradually increase the time every week. Short and intensive concentration seems to be better than a longer one, interrupted by the lack of skill.
Gradually, with practice, you should be able to achieve and maintain the cross without the finger. While maintaining the cross try to become aware of the other 2 circles as well as everything around using your peripheral vision. You should see Auric colours around the coloured circles above with your peripheral vision. When you can analyze surroundings using your peripheral vision, without losing the cross (and the concentration), you are ready to see and read auras.
Advanced levels of concentration :
One diameter in the cross seems usually “in front” of the other. This means, that one of your brain hemispheres seems to dominate the other. Males usually see the horizontal diameter above (left hemisphere dominates) females usually see the vertical diameter above (right hemisphere dominates).
Try to get the “hidden” diameter in front as much as possible, by concentrating, on-demand. The final level of concentration is to achieve and maintain a perfectly balanced cross with all four arms of similar intensity, thereby achieving a perfect balance in both hemispheres. Many people experience amazing effects here. Firstly, concentration gets much deeper. Secondly, after 2-3 minutes you seem like losing sight, with bright background becoming dark purple or pink. Your sensitivity and awareness greatly increase.
Several people reported that wearing the Chakra Shirt significantly enhances such concentration, and my personal experience confirms this.
Colours and Auric Pairs
In concentration exercises 1 and 2 we noticed that real colours are surrounded by Auras of different colours. These auric colours are not random. Following is a list of Auric Pairs of colours for all clean colours of the rainbow (monochromatic colours).
red gives a turquoise aura, turquoise gives a red aura
orange gives a blue aura, blue gives an orange aura
yellow gives violet aura, violet gives a yellow aura
green gives pink aura, pink gives a green aura
The above table applies also to intermediate colours, for example, the yellow-green colour gives a pink-violet aura. Note, that the above Auric pairs are DIFFERENT than complementary colour pairs, “colour wheels” and “colour spaces” promoted by the science and art on Earth. Every child can confirm that the auric pairs listed above are true.
A good look around will prove that Nature is very fond of Auric Pairs. Take any red coloured bird and you can be sure, that this bird will have turquoise body parts too. The same applies to blue-orange, yellow-violet and pink-green combinations, not only in birds but in fish, butterflies, flowers etc.. – anything which is vividly coloured by Nature. Occasionally you will see “the next best” colour instead of a perfect auric match. Have you noticed that MOST of the flowers on Earth that grow on trees and are surrounded by GREEN leaves are either violet, pink(purple) or red? Auric Pairs in Nature are very stimulating, and frequently induce an overwhelming feeling of beauty and happiness.
You need to memorize and know well the above Auric Pairs. Why? Because if you see a pink Aura around someone in a bright green dress, there is a strong possibility that you see the “Aura” of a dress, not of a person.
How to see and READ the AURA: Part 3
Seeing the Aura
This exercise is designed to see Aura for the first time and/or practise seeing Auras. Choosing good conditions is important: not only you see the Aura better, but also to gain confidence about what you see.
- Situate the person in front of a very softly illuminated PLAIN WHITE background. A colour background will change Aura colours, so you need additional knowledge about combining colours. Some combinations of background and Aura colours may cause misinterpretation problems.
- Choose ONE SPOT to look at. The middle of the forehead is VERY GOOD. This is a location of the so-called Brow Chakra or the Third Eye. In some cultures (India) they put a mark on a forehead. Such a mark in ancient times could mean the invitation to look and see the Aura.
- Look at this spot for 30 to 60 seconds or longer
- After 30 seconds analyze surroundings with your peripheral vision, while still looking at the same spot. Continuing the concentration is most important. Resist the temptation to look around. You should see that the background nearby the person is brighter and has a DIFFERENT colour than the background further away. This is your own perception of the Aura. The longer you concentrate, the better you will see it. Remember, concentration on one spot increases your sensitivity by accumulating the effect of the Aura vibration reaching your eyes.
Taking a SNAPSHOT of an Aura.
After concentrating long enough to see the aura, close your eyes. For a second or two, you will see the Aura ONLY. Be prepared. You have only one second or two until your photosensitive cells will stop vibrating and sending visual sensations to the brain. And if you miss it, you have to start concentrating again. Try to experiment with how fast or slow you should close your eyes.
Observing auras of other people
The best is to look directly at someone’s brow chakra (third eye or wisdom eye, which is located @1.5 cm above the nose, between eyes) and aim to achieve the state of mind similar to the concentration technique described above for at least 30-60 seconds. I have tried also looking at throat and heart chakras with similar results. However, if you concentrate on someone’s chest it looks so unusual that the person concerned is usually very uneasy about it. When you look into someone’s brow chakra you can actually continue the conversation.
Again, VERY softly illuminated background, with no shadows is best. With practice, any uniformly illuminated background (such as a blue sky for example) will suffice.
How to see your own Aura
Stand about 1.5 m in front of a good size mirror. In the beginning, it is best if the background behind you is plain white and there are no shadows. Illumination should be VERY soft and uniform not bright. Follow the instructions above for seeing Auras.
PRACTICE for at least 10-15 minutes each day to increase your sensitivity and develop Auric sight. Remember that practice is required to develop Auric sight.
Auric sight and after-images
One of the most frequently asked questions during my workshops is: “Tom, are my eyes playing tricks on me ?” The answer is no, you have just learnt to pay attention to what your eyes are capable of. Light sensors in our eyes (Red Green and Blue) are vibration sensors that are highly non-linear and they have memory. The consequence of memory is that they can oscillate for up to several seconds after the visual stimulation has been discontinued.
This memory of visual stimulation is frequently perceived as an afterimage. After images have precisely the same shape as original images. The afterimage of an object surrounded by its Aura is larger than the original image. The increase in such afterimage is due to the vibration of an Aura and actually represents a “snapshot” of an Aura. It is therefore essential to focus on one spot when watching the Aura and resists the temptation to change the point of focus, otherwise, an image of the Aura may become confused with the afterimage of an object.
Meaning of Aura and its colours
The Aura is a reflection of our True Nature at any given moment. At this point, it is perhaps necessary to explain what do I mean by “True Nature” and why some effort is necessary to “discover” it. Our society seems to emphasize symbols, stereotypes, habits, manners, superficial behaviour, pretending, following others and submitting the free will to some “leaders”. Our “education” seems to be based on the views and expectations of people who try to control the flock.
Our True Nature is what is left when we recognize and discard all our habits, stereotypes, manners, and pretending superficial behaviour and become fully conscious, truly natural and spontaneous. Note that some people are so attached to their manners and habits that it is very hard, if not impossible, to discover who they really are. The only way to get an instant insight into their personality seems to be by watching their Aura, because the Aura shows their True Nature, behind any facade of superficial behaviour.
In general, the more colourful, cleaner and brighter the Aura, the better and more spiritually advanced is the person. Also, the more uniform the energy distribution in the Aura, the healthier and more balanced the person is.
The distribution of the energy in the Aura seems to have the potential of a powerful medical diagnostic tool but usually requires using complex equipment. The scope of this article is to concentrate on what we can easily see with our eyes.
Our Aura surrounds the entire body, but the interpretation of colours below relates to the Aura around the head only. The meaning of colours around the head presented below suggested in the literature has been confirmed by the author. When you learn to see Aura well, you can verify it for yourself, by concentrating on certain thoughts while watching your Aura, or telling people what their thoughts are when you see their Auras.
Usually, people have one or two dominating colours (strong points) in their Aura. These colours (or their Auric pairs) will be most likely their favourite colours.
In addition to dominant colours, the Aura reflects thoughts, feelings and desires, which appear like “flashes”, “clouds” or “flames”, usually further away from the head. For example, a flash of orange in the Aura indicates a thought or desire to exercise power and control. Orange as a dominant colour is a sign of power and a general ability to control people. Quickly changing “flashes” indicate quickly changing thoughts.
Meaning of Clean Colors of the Aura
(colours of the rainbow, bright, shiny, monochromatic colours):
Purple: indicates spiritual thoughts. Purple is never a strong point in the Aura. It appears only as temporary “clouds” and “flames”, indicating truly spiritual thoughts.
Blue: Balanced existence, sustaining life, eased nerve system, transmitting forces and energy. People with a blue strong point in their Aura are relaxed, balanced and feel ready to live in a cave and survive. They are born survivors. Blue thought is a thought about relaxing the nerve system to achieve the balance of the mind or a thought about surviving. Electric blue can override any other colour in the Aura when the person is receiving and/or transmitting information in telepathic communication. For example, Michel Desmarquet, author of “Thiaoouba Prophecy”, frequently glows with the electric blue during his lectures, especially when he answers questions from the public.
Turquoise: indicates dynamic quality of being, highly energized personality, capable of projection, influencing other people. People with a turquoise strong point in their Aura can do many things simultaneously and are good organizers. They feel bored when forced to concentrate on one thing. People love bosses with turquoise Auras because such bosses explain their goals and influence their team rather than demand executing their commands. Turquoise thought is a thought about organizing and influencing others.
Green: restful, modifying energy, natural healing ability. All-natural healers should have it. People with a green strong point in their Auras are natural healers. The stronger the green Aura, the better the healer. They also love gardening and usually have a “green hand” – anything grows for them. Being in a presence of a person with a strong and green Aura is a very peaceful and restful experience. Green thought indicates a restful state and healing.
Yellow: joy, freedom, non-attachment, freeing or releasing vital forces. People who glow yellow are full of inner joy, very generous and not attached to anything. Yellow halo around the head: high spiritual development. A signature of a spiritual teacher. Do not accept spiritual teachings from anyone who does not have such a yellow halo. Buddha and Christ had yellow halos extending to their arms. Today it is rare on Earth to find a person with a halo larger than 1 inch. Yellow halo appears as a result of a highly active brow chakra (which can be seen glowing with violet by many people at my workshops). Highly spiritual people stimulate the brow chakra continuously for many years because they always have intensive spiritual thoughts in their minds. When this chakra is observed when highly active, a yellow (Auric pair) halo appears around it, surrounding the entire head. Yellow thought indicates a moment of joy and contentment.
Orange: uplifting and absorbing. Inspiring. A sign of power. Ability and/or desire to control people. When orange becomes a strong point, it usually contributes to a yellow halo, which then becomes gold, indicating not only a spiritual teacher but a powerful spiritual teacher, someone capable of demonstrating his/her unique abilities. Orange thought is a thought about exercising power or a desire to control people.
Red: materialistic thoughts, thoughts about the physical body. Predominantly red Aura indicates a materialistically oriented person.
Pink (=purple+red): love (in a spiritual sense). To obtain a clean pink, you need to mix the purple (the highest frequency we perceive) with red (the lowest frequency). Pink Aura indicates that the person achieved a perfect balance between spiritual awareness and material existence. The most advanced people have not only a yellow halo around the head (a permanent strong point in the Aura) but also a large pink Aura extending further away. The pink colour in the Aura is quite rare on Earth and appears only as a temporary thought, never as a strong point in the Aura.
Meaning of Dirty colours:
(colours appearing darker than background more like a smoke than a glow)
Brown: unsettling, distracting, materialistic, negating spirituality.
Gray: dark thoughts, depressing thoughts, unclear intentions, presence of a dark side of personality.
Sulfur (colour of a mustard): pain or lack of ease, anger
White: serious disease, artificial stimulation (drugs). Why does the white colour in the Aura indicate problems? White colour is like a noise, rather than a set of harmonious tones (monochromatic colours). It is impossible to “tune” the noise to an orchestra playing harmonious music, hence the white Aura indicates a lack of harmony in the body and mind. Nature, which we are a part of, is harmonious. This harmony comes in discrete vibration “tones” or harmonics, partially described by modern quantum physics.
Several hours before the death, the Aura becomes white and greatly increases in intensity. For this reason in most cultures “death” is depicted in WHITE (not black) because, in the past, people could actually see a white Aura before death. It seems that our ancestors knew much more than we are prepared to admit.
Amplifying your Aura vibration and bio-energy
Things that can greatly amplify your aura are:
- Meditation (purifying your mind from any thoughts)
- Concentration exercise with the cross
- Matching your aura with the environment
