Have you ever wondered how to see auras? Regardless of what some people claim, seeing auras is not that difficult. Find out more about auras in this post.  

As humans, we radiate a low level of electricity, also known as an electromagnetic field. Hindu scriptures that write about ancient systems of medicine, like the Vedas, believe this energy shows itself in seven distinct layers. Significantly, this energy field interpenetrates and surrounds the physical body of every living person on Earth as well as biologics such as plants and trees. Even more significantly, this energy field can tell us much about a person.  

First Mentions of the Human Aura in Western Society

Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831–1891) was a prominent Russian occultist, mystic, and co-founder of the Theosophical Society. She played a significant role in the late 19th-century in the burgeoning metaphysical movement. Blavatsky, a somewhat controversial and influential figure, is best known for her esoteric teachings and her exploration of ancient wisdom traditions. She learned this knowledge by spending two years with monks in Tibetwhich was quite an accomplishment for women of her day.

In a nutshell, one of the notable concepts associated with Madame Blavatsky is the idea of the human aura. While the notion of an aura—an invisible energy field surrounding living beings—has roots in various mystical and spiritual traditions, Blavatsky’s contributions to its popularization are significant. Most notably, the concept of the aura gained prominence through her writings, particularly in her seminal work, “The Secret Doctrine,” published in 1888.

In “The Secret Doctrine,” Blavatsky expounded on the idea that everything in the universe is interconnected through a universal life force or energy. She described the aura as an electromagnetic field that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body. According to Blavatsky, the aura reflects the spiritual and mental states of an individual, offering insight into their character, emotions, and even more astoundingly, individual’s past and future. 

Why Seeing Auras Is Crucial

Colors permeate everything that we see. These colors are categorized as chromatic colors. When people think of a prism of colors, they typically think of a rainbow or a crystal casting a kaleidoscope of colors against a wall. The human body is exudes these same colors, although these colors are invisible to most. Additionally, for those who don’t know, the rainbow colors in the aura, are created by the chakras.

As mentioned, the aura has different layers, or levels, and dimensional planes that have various meanings and functions. The various colors that the aura presents, reflect one’s personality, emotions, and lifelong patterns. Even more importantly, the aura can be seen, felt, heard, and even smelled and tasted by those who are highly sensitive. 

You can have your aura read or learn to read it for yourself or others to gain various insights. The human aura can also reveal past lives. Here’s how you can detect a person’s aura with your five psychic senses, or your standard senses.  

Our Aura Is Our Spiritual Signature

Th human aura is our spiritual signature. When noticing a person’s aura that is bright and clear, you can be sure that such person has a good heart and is somewhat spiritually advanced–even if he or she is modest or unaware of it.

When we realize that our aura is “on display” and people are able to sense it, we will be more apt to watch what we think. This is why it’s a good idea to practice clairvoyantly seeing and improving our own aura. In fact, this can be done by looking in a full-length mirror with a light plain wall behind us and the lighting dim. 

Even more so, by combining these senses, you can gain a holistic understanding of a person’s energy field and its associated aspects. This can help you gain insight into their character and life path, as well as provide you with valuable information on how to best interact with them. With practice and dedication, anyone can learn to detect auras using a few psychic senses!

More about the Human Aura

When you see colors, you are actually seeing frequencies of light! Think of a banana. We all know a banana is yellow because we can see it with our physical eyes. So, how do we know what yellow is? Way back in our childhood we learned the names of colors. However, we didn’t learn about wavelengths determining color. What small child would understand wave lengths anyway?

Our Aura Reveals Who We Really Are

Crucially, we are what we think and our aura colors and the clarity of them is absolute proof in the pudding. It helps us, as well, to recognize the true intentions of other people.  
The intensity of the aura and its colors, especially around and above the head, have a special significance. Watching someone’s aura you can actually see the other person’s thoughts before you hear them expressed verbally. For example: you can learn to effectively see a lie every time. No one can lie in front of you undetected. We cannot fake the aura. It always shows our true thoughts and intentions. 

Sadly, Most Individuals Have a Dull Aura

Unfortunately, the sad truth is that most of us have very weak, dull auras. This is a direct consequence of possible life-long learned patterns which negate and suppress the development of spiritual consciousness, non-judgement, and freedom from negativity. Thus, having a dull aura can happen through a poor diet, stress, childhood trauma, and similar life experiences.   
Dull auras are also a result of giving into fear and feeling envy, jealousy, anger, and other similar emotions over a long period of time. Such long-held emotions suppress our true nature, and our aura becomes weakened and dark. We are all human, but knowing the truth of this can help generate a much cleaner, brighter, and clearer energy field.  

Bright Auras Attract More People to You

As a result, you will find people are more drawn to you and you will feel infinitely better. Hence, by working with this process, we can become emotionally and physically healthier. Practice looking at yourself when having good thoughts and feeling good. Practice dredging up negative thoughts, real anger, resentment, bitterness, etc. and see the difference. If you become ill, notice the changes in your aura and make note of it.   

5 Easy Steps to See the Aura

  1. Soft Gaze Technique: Find a quiet and comfortable space. Focus your gaze on an object or person without staring intensely. Soften your vision, allowing your eyes to relax. Pay attention to the space around the object or person, and you may begin to notice subtle colors or energy fields.
  2. Peripheral Vision: Some claim that peripheral vision is more attuned to perceiving auras. Instead of looking directly at the person or object, try to use your peripheral vision. Soften your gaze and focus on the area just around the person or object.
  3. Meditation: Regular meditation is believed by some to enhance intuitive abilities. During meditation, focus on developing your awareness and sensitivity to energy. This heightened awareness may lead to perceiving auras.
  4. Kirlian Photography: Many people use Kirlian photography, a technique that claims to capture the energy field around living objects. Keep in mind that the scientific validity of Kirlian photography is debated as being accurate.
  5. Practice and Patience: Like any skill, the ability to see auras may improve with practice. Be patient and open-minded, and try not to force the process.


As you can see, the steps presented provide the blueprint for seeing auras. Vitally, you learned that our aura is our spiritual signature. Even more vitally, now that you’ve learned a bit about auras, you can start the process of improving its condition. Notably, seeing the human aura of others helps us to recognize their true intentions. Therefore, it’s the absolute proof in the pudding that seeing the auric field of others is crucial. Surely, the world has the potential to become a much better place if all people could see and read auras. 

Admittedly, it’s important to note that the ability to see auras is not yet scientifically proven. And interpretations of aura colors vary widely among different belief systems. Some see auras as auras as representations of emotional or spiritual states, while others view them as mere visual phenomena or illusions.
