First Time Seeing An Aura


After doing 2 months of meditation, I have been noticing an increase in frequency in psychic happenings. However, I never set the intention to see auras and I saw an aura the other day for the 1st time.

Well, while at a staff training, I was very politely and intently paying attention to the instructor. I was taking notes and about 20 minutes had gone by. Everything was normal and status quo. Then I looked up from my paper to look at the instructor, and all of a sudden, she had this massive white glow around her body, going out about 2 feet in diameter and going around her entire body. The light was very lively moving in and out like a beating heart, and it was opaque and dense. I could not see through it. The edges were alive and swirled like white balls of energy were rolling off. I was in shock. I thought, "I must be dehydrated!" I have never experienced this. So, thinking there was a logical answer, I turned to my left to look at other people. No one else had this. So, then I turned around. No one else had this. I looked down at my hand, and my hand was not glowing white. I looked up again and she was still glowing white. She touched the computer and then the computer started glowing white! It was instant - like her energy went through the computer. Then as she walked way from the computer, her energy flowed back against the air. I have never seen anything so beautiful. I rubbed my eyes several times. I can't explain what I saw, but it was amazing!

So, I put myself out there today. I risked having people think I was crazy! About a year ago, I saw a white house (with a driveway and clothes line and other details). I have been holding onto that image for a year. I didn't want to tell the person for fear that they'd think I was crazy. But now, through using this website and feeling encouragement by my friends and co-workers, I felt more confidence in telling him. So, I told this guy what I saw, and I described it to the T. He said, "That's my mom's dad's house." I asked if there was a lot of pain, fear, and sadness associated to that house. I said, "I see that I am afraid to walk inside the house. I am not allowed in. And I am afraid and DEEPLY sad." "He was an alcoholic when my mom was little and my mother ran away, but no one knows why. The family is not allowed to talk about it." I said, "I think your grandfather feels sorry for his actions and he wanted me to tell you sorry." He said, "He was fine to me." I said, "Then can you tell your mom that he was sorry?" I am so happy that I was right and I was able to help -- and he didn't think I was crazy!

Michelle, That is amazing! I have not seen any other auras, neither before that experience nor after. What I saw was BEAUTIFUL, but unlike you, I don't normally see the slightest, tiniest color or anything. I do not see what you see! That is special. This is your gift! I often reflect on, "Why was I born sensitive? Who am I supposed to help?" When looking back at my experiences & the type of information given, I am given information that is supposed to dramatically change someone's life. When I was younger, I'd naively blurt it out. Now, I reflect and wait for more signs of, "Why am I being given this information - what am I supposed to do with it?" Recently, in the fall, I had a dream that a friend's father was to pass within 3 weeks. I saw his obituary being written. I woke up and told my spouse while crying, "My friend's father is going to die. I don't know why I'm being told this information." He was terminally ill, so he was going to pass, but no one knew when. But I was given the information of when. This was a friend who I wasn't even sure I was going to have in my life much longer. So, I waited for another piece of information. He passed exactly when I saw he'd pass. So, I texted her every day thereafter letting her know that I cared. A month later, after being terribly sad, she told me her common law husband had cheated on her and they were in a bitter fight over the home. She said that I was the only person there for her through everything, and that if it wasn't for my support and positivity, she worried that she may have committed suicide. She said I changed her life. More than 6 months later, I realized WHY I was given that information. I was to help her through her pain and to guide her to having positive thoughts. So, girl, reflect on why you're able to develop these skills. How are you going to help people with your awesome talent? I believe that we're given these abilities because we're supposed to help people. And I believe that if it wasn't for God (or spirits, or mother nature) being gracious enough to give me this ability to use for good, I would not have it otherwise.

Sounds like it was a really good experience.
I've only been meditating for a few days, and started seeing auras, but nowhere near that strong. I'm only seeing the auras very weakly at the moment- it surrounds them, but to me I'm only seeing an outline of colours.
Though, it seems the spirits have taken a shine to me since I've started meditating. Its... Been a weird week.
Has this happened a lot then, since seeing your teacher's aura or was it a one off appearance?

That's amazing. How lucky you are! I hope you get to enjoy more and also find out what each color means. I've studied it, but it's been a long time. I just remember that... I think it is red means the person is anxious/upset. You can probably google auras. Enjoy!

That's a good question. I thought she was conveying the information well, however, I wasn't thinking too much about her and was focusing on the information, as always. And prior to this class, I had never met the woman in my life. Two weeks later, I asked a co-worker for this woman's name so I could write a thank you letter. And then I googled her name (because it was bothering me that I saw this and did not know who she was) and found out that she's this really good person who does all kinds of work with orphanages and writes books on how to help people. And apparently, she's helped people from all around the world. And all these people write her thank you letters for changing their life. So, I don't know what I was seeing, but the light was bright and she is, indeed, a great person.:)

are you particularly fond of the instructor? Do you know if your instructor is psychic as well?

Thank you all for your comments, thoughts, and well wishes! I never in my life thought I would see that! I have had very empathic experiences in my life (I published a story in the past on the other experiences I have had). But I have never experienced anything visual! This experience lasted for the remaining 20-25 minutes of the training session. And it was so big, bright, and great that there was no misinterpreting it! To Vergil117 - yes, I DID wonder why I only saw her aura and no one else's! Do you know why this is? Also, the kind of meditation I have been doing has been very piece milled together. I enjoy yoga, so I try to do yoga in low light, at 5:30am when no one else is awake. I focus a lot on quieting my mind. I try picturing warmth on the top of my head and between my eye brows. But mostly, I focus on quieting my mind. Sometimes, if I had a big, exhausting day at work, I will go into a room away from noise, close the door, shut off the lights, put on a candle, and lay in a few yoga resting positions, for about 10-30 minutes.

PathR - You're right, I was incredibly relaxed and more so than usual. And before I saw the aura, I was thinking about how the instructor seemed to really like what she was doing and I found it to be impressive and very touching. So, I have no doubt that her happy intensity was the cause for the white/pearl color!

I'll have to do research on the Astral Auric Body because I don't really know anything about that. Thank you for letting me know.

And ya, it's like a heat wave. I described it as the surface of the sun.

LucidEmpath - Thank you for the suggestions. That's funny that you'll get caught staring at people! I'll try looking at plants and animals!:) And you're right about those posters and relaxing the eyes. I have an astigmatism (very lightly) and so if someone is more than 10 feet away from me, I will usually relax my eyes. That is probably why I was able to see this. All of the conditions were right: 1.) I was happy and open, 2.) the woman had a lot of energy in general, 3.) my mind was quiet, and 4.) my eyes were relaxed. How interesting!

Thank you all for your thoughts! I appreciate it. Have a great day!

Brilliant! I've been working on aligning my chakras and unexpectedly saw my own aura last night for the first time as well! I posted about it to my personal story, saw your subject on the right hand side of the screen, and absolutely had to share in your excitement. It's invigorating and exciting and I'm really glad for you, abc! Anyhow, I'm not hear to steal your thunder. Keep working on that meditation and don't try too hard to focus on people just to see their auras. You can always practice on plants and other living things as well. I've been trying hard since my experience with no luck, but I have been stuck at work most of the time and trying not to get caught staring at people. Lol. The reading I've done tells me to let my eyes relax and treat it a bit like one of those magic eye posters. Anyhow, best wishes on your personal growth and keep at it, abc!

You are actually telling your own wisdom!

You listened intently then relaxed and then looked!

These are keys as to how you as an individual
Open and interprete the Human Aura.

For you sensed the instructors
Intensity in the work and saw the aura move across
The computer turn the same color.
-This was part of your interpreting!

It sounds as if you were seeing the Astral Auric Body
Which extends 2 feet from the body.
The color pearl has to do with mind,soul,body.
And yes the Aura does move.
My own explanation is viewing a heatwave as the Aura
Moves. If there is damage it will show with irregular

thats so good that you are experiencing this! It shows that your Psychic gifts are awakening! Let me ask you: what kind of meditations have you been working on? It would be very normal to see auras if you are doing chakra work and meditations. Because that would mean that your chakras are opening up. And that makes you more open to this kind of thing. I don't know what white aura means though... Have you wondered why it was just your instructor and not anyone else?
