Learning To See Auras


I never had the ability to see energy before.

After a friend of mine discovered the ability, I was curious. I wanted to see these things for myself. I wished that such an ability would come just as easily as hers had. For a couple months, I almost resented the fact.

One night, she was occupied with Marching band, while I could only sit around and do nothing. She posed an interesting request, "Look at the moon." I complied, spending a full thirty minutes gazing at the full moon, which glowed with an eerie yellow that night.

I was fully convinced that nothing of importance happened that night. The next night, however, while spending time with her and her boyfriend, I attempted the same thing. Something much more interesting happened. I began to see shapes in the moon; of a person or people, of faces. In my peripheral vision, I noticed a clear, elegant outline of silver pulsing from the trees on the horizon. When I thought back to the night before, I realized the same thing had happened the previous night. Today, I can't be certain how or why, but something from the moon---whether I had drawn strength from it, or used it as a gathering point for my own energies---had triggered the development of my Sight.

It has been a slow and painful process that has only lasted about six weeks to this day, the first being September 29th, 2008. My first experience was with a light in my room. I gazed at the light fixture which was in a hole in my ceiling. It was six in the morning, and I didn't want to get up.

When I focused on it, or maybe lost focus? I can't be sure but it began to pulse, grow brighter and then fade away. Almost like a heartbeat. I could feel it as it pushed outwards. I felt a subtle pressure on my face. I did a few tests to make sure it wasn't a trick of the mind.

I made breakfast, and tried the same thing on my cat. I quickly discovered, to my frustration, that only after an immense amount of unblinking and unmoving focus could I perceive even the thinnest, faintest aura, nothing more than a slight distortion in the outline of her figure. I experimented with whatever I could. Pencils, I found, I could perceive quite easily. All of mine had a gentle blue glow about them, one that was much more apparent, and requiring much less effort.

I worked from that point. Plants and inanimate objects, I found, were the easiest. I worked my way to animals, though I still had no luck in keeping focused while adjusting the position of my eyes. Finding energy in an increasing amount of things, I could soon see it in various people, provided the criteria of my limitations were met.

That leads up to now. It's still developing as I continue to exercise it. One thing I've noticed, from the moment I began seeing it, it has been affected by my physical surroundings. It lights up the dark, the color changes depending on the background. The imprints remain in my eyes for a second or so after I look away from it.

From the moment I began developing it (for lack of a better word), it has been wholly integrated with my physical perception. I only wonder, who believes it is a good thing? Who thinks it's bad? I only wonder of the possible long- and short-term consequences. Doubtful it will hurt my eyes, seeing as metaphysical light must surely work on a level transcending our own. Just curious to get ideas moving around.

I don't think this is metaphysical light but something that exist naturally that takes some work to perceive. That's my take on it so far anyway, maybe I'll change my mind as I understand it better.

jozborn I was trying to read all the posts but there were to many. I hope this is not a book already recommended. It is called Seeing and Reading the Human Aura, by Judith Collins. She has been seeing auras all her life and has put a lot of info in her book. I'm still reading it. There are some exercises she has put in the book. One is to increase the number of rods and cones in your eyes. I've been working with it for a week or two, plus a little work with the others and it has increased my color perception a little, makes a drive in the country a little more interesting. I had no idea of how much information I "didn't" know there was about this subject. Cool stuff. Good book. I got a used copy for 15. I would definitely say it's a good thing and worth studying.

Wow! I think the ability to see auras is fascinating and special, even if for a while it was pencils and ceiling lights.

You seemed to be working very hard and for that I applaud you. It's easy to give up and hard to keep going, so very hard and frustrating. In the end it'll be worth it though, and I'm sure you know that.

Keep exercising your eyes and good luck!

No problem babe!;-)
Well, sometimes when I do deep meditation, my worst professor appears in front of me... Staring at me,LOL. Isnt that just a product of our imagination or something related to our memory? Isnt that a product of what do we want to believe? I have read a book entitled Receptive Prayer (A Christian approach to meditation), it says there that if we want to hear God, we only need to tune in at the right signal, just like in television. Is this what you were saying?

Hello Alpha Male,
I only related (A) Uriels gender as a point of interest as elsewhere you had mentioned that angel to be " your favourite " sorry to have wasted your time with that one.
No I cannot see angels, I SAW Auriel only once (actually that's partly a lie, because I actually see Uriel daily on earth, ie; an incarnated angel who is in fact Uriel, however that is a different story and the men in white coats will definately be waiting to take me away! Ha Ha!) however, I digress...
Once during a deep meditation Auriel appeared to me in my head, I was invoking that particular angel at the time, I did draw a picture of the image once out of the meditation, she was extremely pretty, very slight and had a mass affro of golden hair, I'm talking huge hair... Somehow she's related to the swallow, (but that's another story too)
Sandalphon, who is the angel who stands with his feet on the earth and his head in the heavens (he's a giant one obviously) whose job is to take our prayers, weave them into garlands and pass them on to the source (how beautiful, and sorry if you're not interested, someone else might be though!) is very evasive to me, and no matter how many times I try I cannot " get " him, or make him appear.
Practise huh, we all need it! And it begs the question, why am I so hung up on Sandalphon... Just thinking aloud, happens all the time!
See you on the flip

I'm a graduating student in college which means pressures and deadlines is on my way. I didn't mean that I don't really read books, is just that, I cannot add more books to read with my busy schedule. Well I guess you're right, maybe I'm just too lazy sometimes.
I really don't care about the gender of Uriel. You said that you can see her, am I right? Can you really see angels exactly (using third eye or in some sort of a vision)?

Hi Alpha Male,
Unfortunately if you have no time to read books you will I presume, have no time either to meditate. This is unfortunate as this is the main link when one wants to get to know their angels. You mention on another post that your " favourite " angel is Uriel... Mine too although lately she has fallen into the feminine of Auriel, it would seem some trains of thought indicate her as Sandalphons Mrs (for want of a better word!) and indeed when I have seen Auriel she is indeed a beautiful female. She has been my chief guardian for 8 years now.
I wonder that perhaps if you are too scared of becoming in touch with your angels, for fear of them being demons in disguise, that it would not be enough for you to use merely the crystals which have been reccomended, you may need something a whole lot more powerful to clear your negativity and fear... (I know you are not afraid young man, however the underlying demon/ angel thing is strongly in your own consciousness... Thus you are creating your own barriers) therefore a man made cleanser may be better for you. These things are also supposed to negate electrical energies and cell phone waves, computer wave impulses, static etc which we experience in day to day living and also purify our emotions so " the demons " can't utilise them (our feelings) / us.
I think these guys who are "meeting" their angels have the ability of judgement to decipher wether it is an angel or a demon and as long as the person is atuned to love and light the dark side will have great difficulty in even venturing past the true guardians.
Uriel/ Auriel is often shown holding the book which he gave to Adam, which holds all the medicinal herbs in it, and in the other hand a flame which represents all knowledge of the Divine, the mere fact that he holds a book says to me perhaps you should make time to read if this is interesting to you and you are drawn to uriel. There is a lot to discover and asking people to list the important bits is not the correct way to develop yourself... May I suggest you start with Working with Archaengels by...hmm, Theolyn Cor,... Something or other, google it its a great journey, as yours should be too!
See you on the flip! 😊

The book sounds good. If you have time, can you please tell me more about the "steps listed" you were saying? I don't actually have the luxury of time to read more books.

Iva, thanks for the suggestion. 😉

to AlphaMale:
You can buy those stones at your local crystal shops.
Carry them around you whenever you go, it would be best if you attach yourself to a particular stone. That way, you will be able to absorb it's energy and the stone can clean your soul!
I personally like to put them in a corner of my room, whenever I walk pass it, it purifies my mind so I wouldn't be too stressed.

AlphaMale...i actually got a book about angels. Its called "Spirit Guides and Angel Guardians." the author is Richard Webster. Have you heard about the book?
My Archangel is Raphael, I haven't really connected with him yet. But in the book there are steps listed how to create your own Guardian Angel and it says its real.
I believe, so I wouldn't have a problem. But I wonder if Raphael is my Guardian Angel, since I have the Zodiac Signs.
Do you think once I connect and make a relationship with an Angel... Do you think it will be the guardian angel, Raphael, or just another angel?

I've had dreams with angles and if it helps anyone from my experience they are always behind me or below me or just off to my side but most of them are behind.

Hard to explain and I don't get it but someone told me if you read the Bible where Angles are seen or spoken about you will see that they are also below, behind, never infront face to face.

What stones? What will I do with these stones?

at MagicMirror801

Angels and Demons are of the same nature. It's really hard to know if you were talking to a good one (holy angel), and not to a fallen a one (Demon). Demons often appears with wings to deceive those who can see them. The best thing to do is to pray to the one who created them all and that is God. Try to research about angels and their roles. 😕 😁

i don't know if I can talk to Angels yet. I just pray to them on 11:11. Do you know another angels names? Do you think next time I see 11:11 I should ask a Angel to give me a name and maybe they will tell me somehow if I am REALLY talking to a actual angel?

Have you tried using stones to calm yourself? Half the time, meditation works only as a small part of your life. So it might be better if you go to parks more often and try stone works.
I would suggest Kyanites (never needs cleaning - very efficient) or Amethysts. They are both very effective calming stones. I personally use Amethysts a lot and Rose Quartz to enhance my cheerfulness and stuff.

I see. So you mean,you're asking them to confirm your readings? How about seeing spirits? I actually first experienced hallucination when I got sick (Dengue Fever
). I hallucinate most of the time, and its a bit scary, not because I see scary things but because I can't control my feelings and my actions. Let me tell you what exactly happended during my hallucination.
I had this feeling of assulting my own mother (Thank God I wasn't in the kitchen to get a knife) and I'm running away from her going to our dining table while telling her to stay away from me. I really don't know why I am afraid of her, only to find out later that I'm having hallucination. She told me everything about what did I do. I really thought it was a dream. I'm so afraid that time that I might hurt someone.

Hi 'AlphaMale'. 😁
To know that WE are not hallucinating auras, those able to sense auras can tell what emotion or state a person or animal is feeling.
So I don't think that 'jozborn' is hallucinating.
I've been seeing auras for years (only in certain circumstances) and I've developed a really strong ability to see and read others emotions. 😊

I would have to agree with xxivaxx your gift is very special. I have tryed to see auras for years, but I have had no luck. I guess its just not my cup of tea lol.

I think that your gift to be able to see aura is special. In fact, you're lucky, because I can only see it when I'm extremely relaxed and half-dozed. 😆

The most important issue that you have to be clear on is 'what normal humans see in their eyes' and 'what YOU see'.
Aura comes from the spirit dimention in which most people can't see. It would be good if you contact an animal because they are also very sensitive to the spirits surrounding us.

Continue exercising your eyes! It might come in handy someday! 😉
