My name is Brandon, I'm seventeen, and have been on a spiritual journey through life since I had an awakening moment at twelve. Most of my life I have always had an open mind, and enjoy expanding my beliefs in every which way I can. Along my journey I have been shown/taught many things by my guides, but mainly through myself have I learned my abilities. For starters, I am an Empath, and a rather strong one I would say at that. I began having my empathic troubles at 14 as we all do at some point. Learning how not to be an "emotional vacuum" all the time is difficult to control, but I have gotten past it.
I can also sense spirits mostly only when they come and go or decide to show themselves to me. I have never been able to simply see them, though I know they tend to be everywhere. Being an empath with this ability it is easy for me to pick up on the benevolence of the entity rather quickly. The newest of my abilities I am finding rather difficult to work with. Seeing Auras. Now, although I can see some forms of energy the energy of the body (sightwise) is hard for me to see. I've heard of the common staring in the mirror in dim to no lighting, and have tried it, especially when trying to see my past life selves. I can't really recall when or if I have seen my own aura, but when I do notice others, as I know they tend to be described differently, I see them usually when someone is sitting or standing in front of a mono-color wall and it is a glowing outline of their body (slightly behind the actual body not any glow in front)
Problem is, I am not sure if this is their aura or if it is something else. Sometimes I wonder if I was not meant to learn the gift of seeing auras because I am quite pleased with how powerful my empath abilities are. My question is does anyone have any tips as to how I can better train my eyes or third eye to see auras better? When I meditate I can see auras especially when I practice a remote viewing session but I've heard of people with aura senses strong enough to see with their normal eyes. Any tips? ~Peace Love and Light
