I wish I could see auras naturally. I know all about them: what they are, the many layers, and how they affect the interaction with others, be they human, animal, or other. The only time I saw auras was as a young teenager, around the ages of fourteen to about eighteen. It was during the late 1960's and early 1970's. That was when I did LSD and similar hallucinogens I saw auras on everything and everybody. Inanimate objects became animate. I felt supremely happy. It was so awesome. I could also have a conversation with someone else who was "tripping" and neither of us spoke a word. I was aware that I had all the knowledge of the universe and I felt so expansive as if I was one with the universe. That expansive feeling made me wish I had no physical body as it felt like a constricting and confining shell. It's difficult to explain to people what the experience was like.
I can only compare it to being on the other side.
People say that all the answers lie within us but I cannot access them. But during that time, which usually lasted about 10 hours, I did have all the answers. I did have definite access to the Akashic records as it is called. It was so incredible. I only wish I had taken advantage of the opportunity to learn from the experience. Instead, I just enjoyed it with my friends. Back then, the "acid" was all good. I never had a bad trip. I feel sorry for people today as the "real thing" no longer exists. Or if it does, I don't know where it is because I would love to do it again in my current state of mind and age. This time I would pay more attention to the experience. I would try to take advantage of the opportunity to truly grow and get the answers to the questions all humans ask: why am I here, what is my purpose, what is my path, etc. I am ever so grateful for the experience.
I can't advocate for drug use but want to suggest meditation as an alternative method of enlightenment. Drugs, to me, tend to remove the notion of attaching any logic to the experience.
