First, a disclaimer. I am not an aura reader. I do not look at the space around people, I do not read their emotions. What I see is completely different...
I see colors. Not ordinary, everyday refractions of light. No. I see colors when my eyes are closed. They hover around people, several inches from the skin. At first, it appears as a metallic blue (which I can only guess is the neutral color). With time and concentration, the color shifts, becoming a stable color that is bright and vibrant. Once the "true" color is there it never changes. I have only ever seen a change once, which I believe was a fluke during the "shifting" process.
Everyone seems to have a specific shade, often times it is hard to describe. I'm a grass green, for example. My best friend is a sky blue. Another is blood red. But these words don't truly capture the colors that I see... I don't believe there are any words that can. These colors have meanings, though I have yet to completely understand them. I've done a bit of research behind the meaning of colors and how they can reflect different things. But I know that these hues are not auras. They do not change with emotion, they do not reflect much of anything. But that's not the strangest part.
When I'm "looking" at people, sometimes I see a bright, glowing animal figure hovering around their midsection. Not everyone has these animals, in the same way that not everyone has psychic experiences. My friends and I have theorized that these animal figures are linked to psychic experiences or "abilities" so to speak. All of the people that I know whom have had such experiences have animals.
My friend's mother, for instance, has a canary. She has an uncanny ability to sense danger. Is this a coincidence? Is it a sign? I'm not sure. Lana, my friend, has a doe. She sees ghosts and spirits (or what she believes to be ghosts). Alex, another friend, has an owl. He's empathetic and... Well, whenever he shouts or raises his voice it causes immense pain and discomfort. We're still not sure why.
I've put my story out there to see if anyone can give me a good explanation as to what colors may mean or if the animals I see are linked to "abilities". Is there anyone out there that sees colors? What do they mean? Any help and comments are appreciated.
